History of Greg Hitter
Since 1995, SelfQuesting™
has been helping people from all walks of life and all over the world
achieve happiness, success, and well being in all aspects of their life.
I'm confident, based on this time-proven and ever-improving record, that
no matter what your life, history, or your current state of health,
happiness, wealth, or wholeness, that SelfQuesting™
is for you, and that it is a method that will show quick and powerful
results from the get go. I believe anyone can be reached with the
and that it will move them powerfully toward whole being, and the
wellness, success, happiness, meaning, and inner peace they seek and that
birthright. Yes, that's right, I said "wholeness is your
If you want to know, and more importantly be, who you are,
and from that fulfill the potential of all you can manifest in life,
can facilitate true self-connectedness in a simple, elegant way that
nothing else will, creating profound results that you probably never
thought possible. I say this from my personal SelfQuesting™
experience, as well as having facilitated other's quests for wholeness
like me, you've probably found that most approaches to well being are like
trying to dig a ditch with a teaspoon - the results leave you with a
certain sense that there must be something more, a better way or tool.
The SelfQuesting Approach™
is that better tool.
If you are
tired of superficial effects based on ungrounded methods and half-thought
philosophies - or worse, the sterile air of the clinic, where
honest, heart-based relating is subordinated to diagnosis, manipulation,
and the almighty dollar - then speaking with a SelfQuesting™
facilitator will be a refreshing, enlightening experience.
Each of us
is a unique being. Everyone's past is different, so too is their state of
fragmentation/wholeness and its expression in their life. The path
returning one to themselves, to wholeness of Self, is therefore personal
and unique, and something that is not likely to happen overnight. It took
some time to get where you are; it will take some time and effort to
return to wholeness.
But it won't take nearly as much time and effort as you might think,
or have already expended in your search with other approaches. More
importantly, it won't require looking outside yourself. That great
distraction and sacrifice is eliminated with the SelfQuesting Approach™.
is a client-centered approach that focuses on a client's issues as
the doorways to finding and connecting with lost parts of ones conscious
being. It is not philosophy-centered, idea-centered, or
feeling-centered. But, since thought, idea, and feeling are important to
understanding, communicating, and implementing any method, the
doesn't neglect them as a means to examining the issues and speaking
passionately on SelfQuesting™. We at the SelfQuesting Center™
can do this quite well
implementing a consciousness-based worldview - where consciousness
is seen as the driving and directing force behind everything - the
empowers itself to understand and implement a method that goes to the true
and deepest cause of why any issue manifests in a client's life.
times, faced by the difficulties of being in the world, we split off
part of our conscious being as a protective mechanism. This is done
universally; we all do it. The fear arises that if one doesn't protect
themselves in this way, then fragmenting into millions of pieces could
result, and death or worse, total annihilation of Self, no
awareness, nothingness. So the Self fragments a piece of its awareness and
intent off, and squirrels away a part of its essence (self-awareness, what
some call "spirit") into the unconscious in a paradoxical move to
fragment in order to avoid fragmentation and
and irony of fragmenting to avoid fragmenting is usually lost, as
one struggles - trapped in a self-created environment structured around
fear. A fear that, by design, is now unconscious - though it has profound
effects on the person's entire being (identity, energy, mind, body, life).
So, once wholeness is lost, dis-ease becomes structured into ones
life and being. Dis-ease is therefore structured, while "well
being" is a consciousness radiating the wholeness of One Self -
unstructured, freely-radiating like a Sun shining light.
understands that once ones awareness is lost from the conscious mind to
the unconscious in this way - when a person's conscious being or "Self"
fragments - it then sets itself in duality and to a dual purpose.
On the one hand it attempts to remain static and perform its
intention to self-protect. At the same time, on the other hand, the
splintered Self seeks the unity that has been lost. Not being whole, and
needing to proceed by its fear-laden mandate to protect, the fragmented
Self uses its self-created life issues (pain, drama, and trauma) to get
attention, in an attempt to reunite with the conscious mind.
desiring unity, uses "dis-ease" as its calling card
- as a way to introduce us to a path to wholeness and our Self. Failing
to heed the call results in more drama and trauma in our lives, as our
unconscious, fragmented Self finds more desperate ways to express its need
for unity - as if to say, "Can you hear me now? How about now?" Not
listening or not having the tools to meet life more consciously, or
using addiction and other forms of avoidance, denial, and acting out,
leads to a miserable existence as one spirals down toward the bottom.
Hope and Heart
heart who have not given up on life - not having been completely
overwhelmed by their pain, fear, and absence of Self - search for
happiness, well being, a sense of completeness, wholeness. Some of
us seek happiness materially, while others search through learning. Some
connect wholeness with ideas of "God," seeking "holiness" in religion or
spirituality. Others seek completion, consciously or unconsciously, in
work, relationships, addictions, money, success, fame, or the many other
external distractions created to deny the pain of our state of
separation and nothingness (non-being).
renowned Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung felt, like the Buddhists, that
seeking outside ones self, even for God, is a "projecting" out there
of the potential of ones own conscious being, or "Self" - in denial of a
path that can only really be found within, in a meeting with our own soul
or Self. Jung felt we must expand our individual consciousness, what some
vaguely call "soul" or "spirit," in order to become godlike, whole. Thus,
for Jung, "Self" is spelled with a capital "S" to lend a reverence
to its meaning and importance. A renowned Buddhist once advised in regard
to our tendency to abandon ourselves, project, and chase desire in the
external, "we should be less like the dogs that go for every bone thrown,
and more like the lion that goes for the thrower". Our trapped,
unconscious, divided Self is the "thrower," calling to be discovered.
familiar with biblical scripture know that Christ has been quoted
to say, "Hath my Father not told you, you are gods?" and elsewhere "Know
you not that you are gods?" Even Isaiah said, "You shall be as
gods!" We see our potential, and the potential of our wholeness
("holiness"), placed before us in these teachings. All spiritual movements
in their origins acknowledged this potential. Only in their falling away
into dogma and the politics of control did this possibility become
silenced and lost. No new idea is being presented here in regard to
an individual's potential for godhood.
be new, however, is a clearer recognition that the time is now for
the human individual to inherit their birthright - the legacy of
that has been intimated and heralded down through the ages. What also
might be new is a clearer way to approach it. Humanity has finally arrived
at the point where we have the development and resources, inner and outer,
to truly embrace our Self and our intended manifest destiny.
Imagine a world where individuals, instead of worshiping ideas and actions
based on the psyche's underlying fears, come to loving others by being,
knowing, and loving themselves first. And imagine this has become the
dominant force in the world!
Doubt and Belief
Believe what you will. For belief, like idea, is not
particularly required in SelfQuesting™.
So doubt and be skeptical. But in your doubting, doubt your doubt and be
skeptical of your skepticism and thought. Do this just enough to allow for
an experience - a SelfQuesting™
experience - to take the first step on a journey and a path to your Self.
Engaging in the SelfQuesting™
process is an act of faith, in yourself and life. To act requires
hope and belief in life's possibilities, and a willingness to step into
about to enter a personal journey that will create deep, powerful, and
meaningful change, unequal to anything you've experienced before or can
imagine. And it is entirely yours. It is you. And most, if
not all, of the discovery, guidance, and knowledge in this process
will come from within you, not outside you, not even from the
facilitator of your quest. Though, of course, what is outside you will
always reflect what's within you, as it mirrors the Self (synchronicity).
Your task in SelfQuesting™
will be to live your life, and communicate pains and issues in session,
honestly and openly. This will allow your facilitator, who has a trained
ear for "hearing" hidden parts of the Self, to guide you to a
communication and reunion with that lost awareness trapped in your
unconscious - releasing it into conscious being, grounding it into the
body-mind, to freely radiate in wholeness like the Sun (Son).
This concept and experience of the Christed Self, shining
gloriously within, is not new. Many well-known writings and writers have
shared their experience of this state of realized consciousness, of Self,
which in the ancient tradition of numerology was signified by the number
33 and held sacred by the old orders of self-realization:
Full many a glorious morning I have seen
Flatter the mountain-tops with sovereign eye,
Kissing with golden face the meadows green,
Anon permit the basest clouds to ride
With ugly rack on his celestial face,
from the forlorn world his visage hide,
Stealing unseen to the west with this disgrace:
Even so my Sun one early morn did shine
With all triumphant splendor on my brow;
But, out, alack! He was but one hour mine,
region cloud hath masked Him from me now.
for this my love no whit disdaineth;
the world may stain when heaven's Sun staineth.
powers rest from their high fantasy,
already could I feel my being turned -
Instinct and intellect balanced equally
As in a
wheel whose motion nothing jars -
Love that moves the Sun and the other stars.
- Dante (Paradiso)
What has been missing from
the ancient traditions leading to these experiences, and thus largely
unavailable to the individuals who previously partook of them, are the
that we have today. Not the least of which is a wisdom grounded in
practical experience and tempered with the teachings of both postmodern
science and ancient wisdom - as well as a culture based on those
traditions that now at least allows for a certain awareness and
freedom of expression, without the old oppressions on the psyche. This new
awareness and freedom allows for a more direct approach to experiencing
the Self, unencumbered by many bygone limiting realities and their
requirements. And so a simplified, more direct approach can be envisioned
and undertaken to discover the Self.
Respect for You
focuses on your life's problems, as your fragmented awareness speaks
through them. And these become doorways through which you reconnect with
your unconscious and those parts of your self-awareness that have been
lost to difficulty - ultimately to reunite them with your conscious mind
and thus create a unified Self. You become a human being, living
life fulfilled - as opposed to a human doing, driven to seek
outside yourself what can only be found and fulfilled in wholeness from
important for you to know that SelfQuesting™
is not about shaping you in the image of your facilitator, or bringing
you in line with their thoughts or wishes. It is not about controlling you
in subtle ways or creating a following. It is not about
pitting hope against hopelessness or emptiness. Rather it is about
bringing real resources to bear, and delivering the goods. It is
and, even more, assisting you to be you within a process of
finding and reuniting with yourself and meaning, wellness, success,
beauty, and happiness.
is about holding a space for another to truly be themselves - even when
they can't be - especially when they can't be! It is about
being "a guardian of the real Self" and not abandoning the client to idea,
untruth, fear, or efficiency. SelfQuesting™
is always done in a gentle, non-forceful, respectful, and
self-respecting way - no exceptions or excuses. Nothing needs to be
forced, ever - as everything is there and presenting that is necessary
to proceed to wholeness, provided the client will engage in the process of
Many tools to success and happiness offer programs and methods
that focus on exterior trappings and on symptoms, rather
than the deep underlying causes in ones consciousness. How your
consciousness is structured - in fear and fragmentation, or freely
radiating in conscious wholeness in the body-mind - determines what is
expressed on all levels of your existence, in your body, mind, energy,
spirit, behavior, and life. Thus, a whole, conscious, freely radiating
Self creates well being - wellness
according to its wholeness. Whereas a fragmented Self creates
"dis-ease" on all levels according to its structure of fear and
fragmentation. How else could it be?
adage, "as above, so below" or "as within, so without" stems from ancient
wisdom, holding this knowledge that an individual's consciousness is the
director of the stage on which the drama of their life unfolds. Once
the fact that choices are (and were) available is realized, within a
movement of the Self toward whole being, the resulting "ah hah!" becomes
the focal point of a self-realized laugh of release and relief that rolls
through ones universe as if sourced by some great
cosmic joke. And the essence of this self-realization is that the
source is you.
wander through the writings on this website, keep in mind that it's the
state of your awareness, your consciousness, that determines
your life. No amount of knowledge, reading, feeling, dialogue, or insight
will bring you to a unified state of conscious being, to your Self.
Finding the parts of your awareness that have fragmented off into the
unconscious, and then releasing them from their fragmented structure, will
create a wholeness that leads to happiness and well being. SelfQuesting™
is a process of experience and transformation toward being, and
being whole. SelfQuesting™
is not a process based on knowing, thinking, or
feeling. In fact, SelfQuesting™
acknowledges that these elements of mind are created by states of
consciousness (Self), not the other way around.

is an entirely different paradigm from the two previous
great worldviews of religion and science, and its process doesn't focus on
content or symptom. Instead it focuses on a process of finding
consciousness and bringing it into wholeness - bringing "light to light."
I urge you
to call for your free initial consultation - to experience
firsthand the grace, wonder, and power of a process that will bring you to
your Self and being whole.
If you want
to find out who you really are, and why you're in the world, engage in
finding and reuniting those parts of your awareness that are trapped in
fear in the unconscious. No matter what you've tried before, no matter how
you've failed in your search for happiness, SelfQuesting™
can assist you to come to yourself and find the lasting well being that
only wholeness of consciousness can offer. SelfQuesting™
can open you to the peace, success, happiness, meaning, and fulfillment
that truly is your birthright. In this way it truly is "the road back
ask, "if wholeness is my birthright, why don't I have that wholeness now,
and the well being it implies?" The answer is that you have
forgotten yourself and need to re-member it - to find the parts of
your consciousness, lost and trapped in the unconscious, and reunite them
with the awareness that freely radiates in your body-mind in the present.
From that whole conscious being, grounded in the body, will come a whole
brain and a whole mind-body that function in ways reflecting well being
and a meaningful ("holy"= whole) way of life.
process, your autonomic nervous system will move toward balance, as will
your endocrine (hormonal) and other mind-body systems, perhaps requiring
adjustments in diet and use of the "vibrational
tools" shared here. You will begin to process less exclusively from
your left-brain (thinking, reasoning, etc.) and more from your whole brain
and being, and give up control. You will begin to sense, feel, and intuit
in ways that will expand your thinking and experience of life. All aspects
of your being will unite into a whole and make sense in every way with
everything else. You will come to a profound understanding of yourself and
the weave of your life as it comes together into one simple tapestry,
of your existence that called through drama and pain for attention and
change will undergo a shift. Your habits and behaviors will begin to
support wellness, as you are moved toward a more natural diet (one no
longer designed to stuff pain or self-medicate). And you will naturally
adopt new and appropriate ways of living. True systemic wellness
will have the opportunity to manifest on all levels of your existence
(body, mind, energy, spirit). Dysfunctional ways of thinking, feeling,
behaving, and being will fall away and be replaced by ease, love,
contentment, belonging, joy. You will come to realize the truth that:

consciousness radiating the wholeness of One Self"
