Saying ‘I need…’ is an Opportunity


Find a New Bridge to your Power
Find a New Bridge to your Personal Power

I need = actually means I need some help to activate a new potential within me.

I heard this concept from Rev. Dr. Michael Beckwith, founder of Agape International Spiritual Center. Then I took it deeper into my own experience.

When you say ‘I need’ (something). It really means that you need to activate that power within yourself. It is time to find your power in that area of life. And your spirit is reaching out asking someone for help to grow. What a different perspective from the norm?!

There are multiple mind-sets that different people come from when saying ‘I need…’ And it always means the same thing no matter how it is heard.

This ‘I need’ statement is said from the belief and the feeling that life is happening TO you. Actually, you are now in the doorway of a new opportunity to be guided into a new level of personal power and away from the societal norm of victim-hood. I understand this mind set very well. Having grown up in an alcoholic household where other dysfunctions happened I chose something very different in my early adulthood. I chose to purge that past and to learn better ways to manage myself and life. Having done this process of going from ‘I can’t’ to ‘I can’ many times I understand the inner process to transition into my power and away from my pain.

As Rev. Dr. Michael Bernard Beckwith says: Pain pushes until Vision pulls

It is difficult at times and even 20+ years after my Spiritual Awakening (which happened on the beautiful island of Bali, Indonesia) I have to catch that old mischievous thought pattern when it pops up once in a while.

Whac-a-mole your old thought patterns
Whac-a-mole old thought patterns to Establish New Thought patterns

Back when I first became aware of this and began the journey it was like a game of whac-a-mole. I would handle one area of life and then this belief that it was happening to me would pop up in another area of life. Then I would handle that one… and then it would pop up in another area of life… on and on. That is what we sign up for when we want to remove ourselves from the stream of normality and delve into our true nature and live the life we came here to live… not the life that others would have us live.

Then when someone has grown into their power and, for me, I have become an authority on personal growth, spiritual development, mental focus, stress management, etc via coaching, teaching, speaking, writing, et al, there will still be times when life feels like it is happening to us… once again. New opportunities to grow!

There is a song: Life is calling me a little bit deeper than before. (If I find a link I’ll connect it here)

This happened several  months ago in the biggest way it has ever occurred in my adult life with authorities attacking me, slandering me, people gossiping (talking about me and not to me), financial income disappeared without any warning and every single aspect in my life (except my partner and cat) became topsy-turvy. That is when the teacher, me, needed help which was not quick in forthcoming from friends and others, perhaps representing my stubbornness to not change? Perhaps representing time for upgrades in the friends department of my life?

From terror to peace

Sometimes the path seems lonely
Sometimes the path seems lonely

It really was a bad dream. Almost every person who I thought cared about me and was part of my friend, student or spiritual support system, whether I knew them for a few years or for a decade, would disappear when I reached out for help; one long-term person even attacked me with her partner’s help for having these problems in life. Blaming me for being down and kicking me through her projection of blame. Whew, this was turning into an additional lesson to develop my wisdom about friendships and who I extend my heart to. Plus a clear sign to go within myself to be led to the answers.

I knew where I needed to be in my mind/heart/nervous system set point but I could not find the way to get there by myself.  As I felt those old feelings of being consumed by other peoples’ crap and I felt as though I was drowning ‘under’ the old way of perceiving life I reached that point of proclaiming ‘I am not going to take it anymore!’


That is when I finally reached out to a shaman friend, Joy, from New Zealand – lives in South America currently. It took her knowing for me, guiding me and using her skills for me to find a new and much deeper sense of personal power and to create a new self-identity from this new level of comprehension, depth and power.

Everyone in life plays their roles perfectly for us to grow into our True Selves

And to realize that EVERYONE in life plays their roles for me to find more personal power and for me to dig deeper within so that I rise above it. I had to claim this even for the antagonists, even the gossipers, even those who lied, even those friends who did not have the ability/willingness to help when needed, even the persons who promised help and did not deliver when I asked, even the head of an international training organization who slandered and attacked me as I kept finding ways to resolve things and sought peace with her, even the landlord whose home was a health hazard as determined by the city, even the previous spiritual support people who were not there, even… on and on…

Need a Hand Up the Mountain Climb
Need a Hand Up the Mountain Climb

I NEEDED help to find my new footing into a deeper and new level of life.

Life is always providing us opportunities to achieve our dreams

and to find our power. It is not always pretty and tidy.

Joy used her skills to hold my hand (via Skype) and take me through the process. I found it. Hallelujah!

It was then that I could stop saying ‘I need…’ Instead I could now proclaim ‘I have found a new self within me’ and begin to integrate this new perspective and new awareness to unleash this Universal power into my life. That is when things first began to turn around. It then continued to unfold as I integrated it into all those areas that simultaneously needed a life upgrade. It took a while to integrate because it was in so many areas of life (friends, supporters, self perception, home, finances, business, auto, etc). I was discovering how to come from this new self with Universal power in each affected area of life. It was time to do my inner work using these new skills and perspectives.

A long time ago I signed up for a life that was different from the societal norm.

In my late twenties I moved to Denver where two close friends had moved to. We did constant spiritual exploration together; reading, meditating, workshops, trying to channel, etc. We each committed within ourselves in our own ceremony that our individual primary commitment for the rest of life was to our personal growth and to the spirit inside us coming forth in life. I signed up for it and this is what it requires at times to achieve it.

Considering the situation that began in 2010, nine months later I am seeing the benefits beginning to show up in my external life. All that inner work is now causing external changes that reflect the new person inside. PLUS the greatest reward is that I feel like a different and new person. I am much wiser, my vision is much clearer and my service comes from a much deeper place within me.

Realizing the Healing Powers Within
Realizing the Healing Powers Within

This is what Personal Freedom feels like

I have such a profound change in life that I feel more empowered and capable; those aren’t even enough words to convey the deep swirling of energies that I now feel more constantly inside me. The conscious path may seem daunting or even impossible at times… And you can be guaranteed one thing: on the other side of the mountain climb lies the fields of glory where the rewards will be reaped for a lifetime.

And it all began with an ‘I need…’ statement that turned into a journey of a lifetime.

Now, to continue my journey, mission and purpose.

Thanks for reading/listening. Supportive questions and comments are welcome.

My blessing for you

May you find your way through the weeds of other peoples’ control over your life onto your own unique path to find your True and Authentic Self to unleash your Soul’s Dreams to be made manifest. May you hear the gentle and loving voice of your guidance to walk this path and proclaim to the world: I AM HERE AND I AM READY TO SHINE!

A Hero To Yourself – from Science of Mind magazine

Science of Mind August 2011
Science of Mind Magazine August 2011

From the Science of Mind magazine Daily guides: Tuesday, August 16, 2011

Let’s dare to be ourselves, for we do that better than anyone else can.

– Shirley Briggs

I see that the future is bright with promise. It beckons me forward into a more complete realization of my own worth and my rightful place in the Universe. 

– The Science of Mind, page 246

My sister-in-law gave me a journal six months before I had set the date to go sky-diving for the first time. I was terrified of sky-diving, but committed to jumping as a means of overcoming fear. The title of the journal? Courage Every Day. My sister-in-law had no idea of my sky-diving plans.

The journal is full of courage-related quotes, and I’d like to share my favorites. Alfred Montapert wrote, “Welcome problems and eat them for breakfast.” Thinking we don’t have power to overcome is the victim’s stance. We are powerful beings, God in form, and God has our backs in every moment. There is no difficulty that we cannot rise above when we believe in ourselves and the One Power that is all of creation.

Richard Tate wrote, “Orville Wright didn’t have a pilot’s license.” What greater way to be a hero to yourself than to do something that has not been done before? Orville Wright didn’t know how to fly, but he figured it out. It is quite heroic to persevere through unknowns and uncertainty to do or be something new.

Mahatma Gandhi wrote, “There is a person now slumbering within us, which if awakened would do to evil what light does to darkness.” The slumbering person within us is awakened by consistent spiritual practice, elevating our own and all human consciousness above evil—it simply fades away into nothingness. Our most heroic acts are those that enable us to truly know ourselves in all our guts and glory.


Knowing that God always has my back, I leap into the adventure that is my life. I am a hero in my own eyes.


* I understand that some people may have a problem with the word ‘God’. The context here is It is the Quantum Energy and Intelligence that physicists tell us that we exist within. Some people refer to It as that Love Field of Energy around us and inside us. Or Source Energy, Universal Intelligence, Higher Power… Man has given it many names and each name comes from man’s own awareness of who he considers himself to be in the cosmology of life.

Life Catalyst | Coaching & Guidance Into Your Good

Expand Your Self to BE Who You Are
Expand Your Self to BE Who You Are

Coaching is the art of skillfully guiding someone into obtaining what he/she desires to have in life while activating the different human systems that allow his/her greatness and goodness to manifest through his/her life.

Being a Life Catalyst comes from having obtained substantial depths in life so that I can guide you into new horizons within yourself. I am fortunate to have trained, learned, apprenticed and licensed in four major personal growth systems plus many minor ones. This allows me to perceive you and your desires from the multiple layers of life that make up your personal matrix system leading you into a more expansive and permanent change for the better.

This means I perceive multiple layers of what makes up a human including mental, physical, emotional, spiritual and energetics. Working on five and more layers simultaneously provides for a much deeper experience of who you are and who you want to be.

People hire me to work with them on any aspect of life, tangible and intangible, whether it be:

  • a goal to achieve

Core Principles of Human Potential -> Corresponding Life Skills

Human Potential
Human Potential is Infinitely Unfolding to those with Curious Minds

To tap into the human potential is to explore the multiple layers that make up the human. Along the journey a person realizes that it is like going down the proverbial rabbit hole into a new world of wonder that exists within them self forever expansive, forever infinite, forever creative and forever a grand adventure.

This is a brief overview of Four Core Principles of Human Potential

Remember from science class that potential energy remains a potential until it is activated to become kinetic energy which is when it becomes an action in life. Our potential is the same. It resides as a potential until we Activate it to become an action in our life.

Below you will see the Core Principle (potential) on the left that -> (leads to) the Life Skill (kinetic – action) on the right.

Unleash Your Brain Power
Unleash Your Brain Power

* Principle of Human Potential: Brain Intelligence-> Life Skill: Directing Your Thoughts
It is more than valuable to tame your thoughts and direct them to chosen endeavors. It has been shown that effective self-direction leads to greater mental focus, increases creative thoughts and leads to a major reduction in physical, mental and emotional stresses.

Medical Science tells us that 90% of illnesses are directly caused by persisting levels of stress in our human system. And we know that at least 90% of all problems in life are occurring because of internal persisting stresses (mentally, emotionally, energetically) that prevent the natural good from coming into our life.

To know how to direct our thoughts is actually a fundamental  life skill for any person who wishes to live a life beyond their norm. This is part of my repertoire.

Tools for this include Deliberate Creative Visualization, Optimal Imagination, Mental Focus and Stress Management.

And we are so much more than just our Brains and thoughts. There are layers available to each of us that are beneath our mental perceptions fundamentally occurring within and through us. Direction of our thoughts leads to the ability to direct these forces BUT is mostly submissive to most of the other principles.

Your Riches exist within you Waiting for you to Tap It
Your Riches exist within you Waiting for you to Tap It

* Principle of Human Potential: Heart Intelligence -> Life Skill: Identifying Your Heart’s Sensory Signals
Science has now shown that our organs contain neurons, which are the make-up of our brains that lead to our ability to make mental decisions. The poets and romantics have said for ages that we should follow our hearts. I add to that “while maintaining a balanced input from all of our sensory inputs.” Each person’s heart is a unique layer of valuable guidance available to help them navigate to a better and better life.

The Heart’s Sensory Signals are always occurring within our Human System. To be able to identify the heart signals, listen to them and then make wise decisions using the heart’s input helps people to live a life beyond their norm. This training is part of my repertoire.

Tools for this include Emotional Management, Universal Love Meditation, Self-Direction on Heart Attunement, Life GPS.

Intuition is a Thought Process Leading to Infinite Potential
Intuition is a Thought Process Leading to Infinite Potential

* Principle of Human Potential: Intuitive Intelligence -> Life Skill: Hearing & Directing Your Intuition
Dr. Michael Gershon is picking up on research begun in the early 1900s about how our gastro-intestinal system provides us feedback on much more than just what we eat 😉 His book is The Second Brain.

The intuition can come from sensations in the guts and from unexpected and instantaneous KNOWING thoughts. A person can train their brains to receive intuitive thoughts directly from this energetic channel on cue. This training is part of my repertoire.

Tools for this include Creative Visualization, Expansive Imagination, Taming the Logical Chatter.

Life is an Unfolding Process of Evolving into your Greatest Good
Life is an Unfolding Process of Evolving into your Greatest Good

* Principle of Human Potential: Quantum Intelligence -> Life Skill: Tapping Your I AM Intelligence
Quantum physicists tell us that every person, rock, animal, cloud, waterway, tree – everything – is different levels of vibrating quantum energy. This includes all of life, seen and unseen. Quantum energy contains quantum intelligence. Just like we know that in each of our cells is all the intelligence to recreate our human form.

It is a progressive process to train yourself to have the skill to identify, hear and direct the multitudes of quantum energies – Quantum Intelligence – that make up who you are. This is accomplished by working directly with the Laws of Life including Oneness, Creativity, Law of Attraction, Reciprocal Universe, An Abundant Universe and much more.

Learning these are what many will consider walking a Spiritual Path. Learning these leads to an expanded Cosmology in your MIND.

As we accept that we are not separate from our Source/Quantum Intelligence – and that we cannot be nor can ever be separate – our life will unfold more and more into being a life that reflects abundance, good, creativity, living your passion and achieving your goals. These skills lead to an advanced state of living life. This is part of my repertoire.

Tools for this include Contemplative Meditation, Visual Expansion of Self, A Freed Mind & Imagination.

* Principle of Human Potential: MIND Intelligence -> Life Skill: Living Your True Nature

Our MIND encompasses all of the above principles working within our Personal Matrix in synchronous unison intently for us to have our highest good and to live our highest life. As a person works with these Core Principles of Human Potential their Mastery of Life increases through the proper use of these new Life Skills.

This continuously unfolding of our MIND’s Intelligence results in a Resetting of Your Human System to a new Set Point so that you can live a Better and Better Life.

Tools for this include the Visioning Process, Finding Inner Answers.

Your MIND has Access to all your need, want and desire, right NOW
Your MIND has Access to all your need, want and desire, right NOW

* Principle of Human Potential: Quantum Matrix -> Life Skill: Collective & Synchronous Power

As we find our power through these inward focused principles and life skills we begin to sense a collective consciousness and tap into our passion and mission on this planet. You are now ready to take your unfolding personal power to work with others to achieve a greater good on this planet, as you are directed to do and to be.

One tool for this is the MasterMind Process.

Intellectual Freedom, Carpe Diem and Be True to Yourself

Dead Poet's Society Movie Poster
Dead Poet's Society Movie Poster


To Be Read At The Opening
of D. P. S. Meetings

I went to the woods because I
wanted to live deliberately…
I wanted to live deep and suck
out all the marrow of life!
To put to rout all that was not life…
And not, when I came to die, discover
that I had not lived…



This is from the book of poetry Five Centuries of Verse that is used in the Dead Poet’s Society meetings. These are certain lines pulled from “Walden” by Henry David Thoreau.  The original poem and 3 others from the film are at:

This is one of my most recommended movies to watch for those who desire to live from the depths of life and to experience the awesome-ness while here on the planet.

We watched this movie Dead Poet’s Society the other night. I have seen it several times but it had been a while. I was re-inspired in the best of ways.

Dead Poet's Society - Robin Williams
Dead Poet's Society - Robin Williams

I was reminded of these 3 important intents for life:

  • Develop and use Intellectual Freedom
  • Carpe Diem, Seize the Day
  • Be True to Yourself

Change is possible at any time of life. What is required is simple. Focus upon these intents regularly which will stir your thoughts, your perceptions of your life and increase your depth of self awareness. This will then allow new thoughts to come into your consciousness. Rest with them like you smell a good wine. Savor them like the first  sip of a fine wine on your palette.  And sense the new energies as they begin to stir within your personal matrix.

In Brief:

It is a quietly powerful movie with Robin Williams playing the teacher, Mr. Keating, who has enough awareness of himself and of life to use unorthodox teaching methods in a stodgy private school where parents send their boys to become what parents and society expects of them. Mr. Keating helps each boy open their minds and hearts, find their own intellectual freedom, take action to explore their lives, dare to stretch and expand their experiences in life. It is especially beautiful how he ‘pulls’ out the depths of one boy who is so self loathing and afraid of life that he just observes everyone. During the movie he transforms into more of his true self. A metamorphosis.

Several of these students resurrect the Dead Poet’s Society which ends up running afoul of the stodginess and expectations of the old people who “know what is best for each of the boys”. This is such a beautiful portrayal of life and possibilities with the boys awakening and resisting. It takes you through and into the depths and rewards of intellectual freedom and authenticity with a powerful heart.
