I love this video. It describes very well what I have come to believe about who we are. I have been on this unusual quest for an engineer. Many years searching, learning, practicing, being curious about how to do life better. And then how to elevate life using inner skills. From college to Malaysia to Hawaii to the western US and Texas I found some amazing people and teachers who pushed, cajoled and taught me how to change from the inside. So, now I pass that along as I help those who are curious.
Instead of being a person who is a victim to life you learn you can actually direct life. You begin to realize that you are the energy of consciousness that inhabits whatever body you are in for whatever purpose you have while here on this planet. Instead of being a person who is a victim to life you learn you can actually direct life. And since this is who we are we are immensely powerful. We just have to learn how to access it. Then life grows and changes for the better.
So I asked them if I could post it on my blog. They sent me the link with this kind message: Thanks for your message. Please feel free to share the video in your blog, here is the youtube link, just use the embed code and credit Prince Ea Thanks
As an advanced visualization teacher I appreciate clear ways to understand ‘why’ it works that you can imagine what you want and soon you will have that. This is a great article for understanding that.
One reason it works to ‘index’ information you are learning for easier recall:
“Fostering visualization of any content (curricular or otherwise) by targeting and using the occipital lobe as the central point of processing the information is one of the strongest ways to help that material enter the brain… and stay there even as external stimuli compete for attention.”
Occipital lobe- located at the back of the head, this section occupies some 20% of the brain’s overall capacity and is responsible for vision and being able to visualize scenes never actually witnessed before.
We have the power and can adjust our energies to be in alignment with what we want. Doing this with an effective and strong focus cuts right through your personally held obstacles, known and unknown, to get you into the place to get very specific answers to what you want.
A ONE Transform session actually causes a Quantum Shift in life… in just 2 hours. It is experiential utilizing your brain, mind, body-centered intelligence and soul intelligence causing a transformation.
My friend, Dr. Huerta had this reaction. I wish I would have had a flip camera for after his first session that moved him to his core. But here this one is…
When we focus on the end result and are not distracted by obstacles and challenges we create what we want. When we focus on the obstacles, the reasons and excuses that we cannot achieve it, the pains, etc then we create more of that.
This proprietary combination of three powerful personal achievement techniques plus a new one taps multiple personal power centers to cause a direct experience of shifting into that new reality in the session.
There is a special offer at the end of this video.
We must at times remember that we are first spiritual beings and second we are an expression in this physical form of this spiritual being. I liken this to the saying to ‘Stop and smell the roses’ – Stop and remember who you are.
Martin Sheen and his son Emilio Estevez make this film that is a fun and meaningful movie of going deeper within one’s own self…
The ending is great with the same message as many other classics: what you seek has been within you the whole time that you have been busy seeking. Beautifully done.
Sometimes the Divine Source speaks through humanity for a major change. This thought-provoking dive into the depths of history, humanity and spirit is well worth the watch.
I have seen Marianne Williamson speak in person and on the internet. To me, she is one of the people I respect so much for her ability, depth of insight and willingness to speak God’s truth; i.e. speaking about the intelligence that drives humanity. Her website is http://marianne.com/
I know that some people do not agree with the politics of this movement. I am not arguing anything here. This is a look deeper into the current global movements involving personal freedom and expression – something that we are not going to see on the news.
This is my recount of a story I saw on the Oprah show and that Oprah re-covered for the Lifeclass she has been doing on her new cable network, OWN.
There was a little girl in Africa who used to do her brother’s homework for him. Boys were educated and girls were married off while in their preteens. That is how that society values the genders.
The boy’s teacher found out she was doing the homework and begged her father to allow her to come to school. He would not. The girl, Tererai Trent, was married off at age 11. She had three children . At some point a woman from an American Aid organization was in Africa. The girl told her that her dream was to have an education and to live in America. The woman told her to write down her goals. Put them in a tin and bury it so that it becomes a seed for her life and it will grow.
For the next years she was beaten daily by her husband. She ended up moving to America and got her bachelors degree then her Masters degree. Then she got her Doctorate. She married a good man. She had a dream to improve the schools in her country. Oprah donated over $1 million to her and arranged for some experts to help her implement the improvements to the school.
She achieved the four major dreams she had for herself and her life.
Guide children into doing this
Declare who you are. Claim what you will do with this life. Write all of this down. Bury it inside a metal container of some sort. See it as planting a seed. Let it go and allow it to grow. When you plant a carrot seed you get carrots. When you plant your dreams you get your dreams. Know this. Believe this. You only need to believe it with 51% of yourself. Even with doubts it will grow. Opportunities will come. Ideas will be planted in your mind.
Please be clear. This post is a post to myself. When I put things ‘out there’ I tend to hold myself more accountable to living this way than I may be when I keep it to myself. Understood? And, just maybe, this will assist you 😉
In yesterday’s post – Life Difficulties: An Empowering Perspective – I shared realizations, sparked by Michael Beckwith, that have helped in shifting my mind from perceiving difficulties into more forward-positive ways of perceiving events. This is another piece of the puzzle.
Everyone has an inkling inside themselves as to who they are to be in this life. AND everyone has that logical mind that only knows to project its fears into your future. I teach and coach about the two brain modes we are all born with. Each has their duties and, when properly trained, each can be utilized for its greatest benefits. I believe it is always best to find the benefits of things from the perspective that if it exists there must be a positive viewpoint for it.
Simple Overview of Brain Functions
The left brain hemisphere, mostly, contains a logical database of everything that has been learned in this life through school, others and direct life experiences. This is the pathway for your Logical Thought Channel and is the connection to this world of form through your five physical senses.
The right brain hemisphere, mostly, is the creative connection to life. It is the state of mind where you dream, sleep, meditate, vision and other endeavors that are not limited to this current physical experience of life. It is a place where time and space have no meaning. This is the pathway for your Intuitive Thought Channel.
The Logical Thought Channel only knows what it already knows. The Intuitive Thought Channel has access to anything and everything that is possible to know. It is connected to the Source, the God, the Quantum Intelligence, whatever label you prefer.
Your logic has never heard a creative thought that it, at first, did not resist. It always has to be trained to accept new thoughts and ideas. This is just the nature of the beast.
Intuitive Guidance vs Ego Fear Thoughts
When you hear that steady quiet voice of knowing from your intuitive thought channel telling you ‘it’s time for a change’, you are supposed to act on it. It continues by whispering ‘You’re here to do more. You are to _____’.
You will inevitably hear thoughts from your logical mind (also known as your ego) that will likely be all about fear, lack and limitation.
The more you have validated your fear thoughts the more you will hear the ego’s fears. They have been trained to be relevant to you.
Here is a suggestion:
You will feel afraid. Say to yourself ‘I’m doing it anyway’.
You will hear ‘I’m afraid to try something new’. Say to yourself ‘I’m doing it anyway’.
You hear ‘I’m afraid to fail’. Say with authority ‘I’m doing it anyway’.
The ego says ‘I’m afraid of what people may say about me’. Tell it ‘shh, I’m doing it anyway’.
Then you may have friends and family share their opinions that represent what your ego is saying. They are doing you a favor. It is like your ego is giving you a chance to stand up for yourself by validating your intuition. Tell them tactfully: I hear what you’re saying. I have had those thoughts. And this is something that I am compelled to do. I could use your support as I challenge myself to grow. This works to say to your ego, also.
F-E-A-R = False Evidence Appearing Real
All of this fear is the logical brain projecting its uncertainty into your future. You are in charge. Listen to it. Say ‘thank you but I’m doing it anyway. It is time to make a life change and I am committed to doing it. Ego, get on board’.
I first heard this through Dr. Wayne Dyer: E-G-O is Edging God Out. How accurate. The ego cannot handle the idea of someone knowing more than it knows and no matter what your definition of God is… It definitively knows more than the ego since It is limitless and the ego is only based on past knowledge.
Cultivate your Inner Knowing so that you hear its guidance. Practice trusting your Intuition by acting on it and learning whether it is accurate or not. Remember, your Intuition is the thought process through which your Inner Knowing communicates to you. It is not concerned with the way things have always been. It is not encumbered by fears and limitations.
Gain Mastery over your Mind. Train it that you are in charge and you will select which thoughts you are going to pay attention to. Then keep your word with yourself. Tell your ego that you hear it and your are choosing to do it anyway.
Change your inner self, listen to your guidance and move your feet. Do what you came to this planet to do.
In the complete timeline of humanity there will only be one you. Like snowflakes there are not two alike. You are a unique expression of the Divine with your own mission, your own talents and gifts and your own personality. How could you ever doubt that you are here to do your greatness, no matter how big or small you may judge it to be. This is why you came here. Learn how to work with your inner faculties. It makes accomplishing your purpose so much easier.
There is something transformational about listening to the right message at the right time from the right person. Thank you, professor Beckwith. Love to you. Thank you for preparing the way for us to walk our best and expansive life of service.
I have been struggling with ‘getting’ what the last year has been about for me. Admittedly I have spent too much time trying to understand it, taking away from my forward-moving focus. I have had an enormous amount of #!%@ thrown my way starting in September 2010, so much so that my life does not even resemble what it was last year. THANK GOD!
I do not have the same income. 90% of it dropped away because the president of the training organization I taught for dropped me without a single consideration or word, spoken or written. This has taken some major adjustments to compensate for, mentally, emotionally, psychically, physically and spiritually; every -ly.
I do not live in the same place because I had to cut expenses. I found out that ‘friends’ ran for the hills. Many other traumatizing events that I do not wish to dig up right now. You can read hear what I did to get past it
Yes, that was the most horrifying place I have ever been as an adult. AND the truth is I was trying to fit into a global mind development training system that does not have room for an expansive soul. I have more to offer than that one simple method. I kept trying to squash myself, my visions and my ideas in order to fit in. I overlooked their indiscretions for more than three years. I finally got it: stop giving new opportunities to them to expand and update their method. They do not want it. And stop asking for help for my students because they are not interested. It was all falling on deaf ears. These opportunities must be for me.
I kept thinking “it must be me. I have to grow. Other teachers have been with them for over forty years. It must be me.” That is what the abused says to them self when they are trying to excuse the abuser. Some may think that may be an extreme place for me to take this to… it does apply in the manner in which things were handled.
Pain pushes until Vision pulls – Michael Beckwith
A Moment for Awakening
My life does not yet look anywhere close to where it is evolving into. Room for growth!
Can you feel the old, clingy, sappy, resentful energy in some of what I wrote above?
Is there an area in your life that you have some resentments?
Do you realize the price you pay for staying in that energy?
Has your life slowed down?
Do you find yourself complaining too much?
Are your thoughts full of bad thoughts towards others?
Is your energy for life low?
I heard Michael Beckwith say this:
A lot of chronic issues in life are a result of either:
Trying to extract happiness from a world and life that is too small for you and/or
That issue is bringing you a gift, a talent to activate within yourself (we’re growing a quality within us that is seeking to come forth)
When the 2 by 4s come fast and hard it is because you’ve broken a promise to your soul about what you are to do in this life. These are the lessons I set myself up for. They are coming hard and fast because I did not listen to the quiet voice within me telling me to make the change.
Truth is: I had three ‘readers’ who had told me in the previous two years to get out of that international company because they will screw you over. Those are the words of the channeler from Colorado and from an Akashic Record reader in Austin. I had already had many ‘small’ instances that I could have chosen to heed. Instead I chose to go along to get along just like the teachers that are still in the system told me they have had to for decades.
So, I had plenty of warning but I kept believing in something that wasn’t.
What I thought was a safe place to express my gifts to students and the world was not my safe place. It works for those who are still there. It does not work for me. They have the exercise I gave them that is being taught to the world, for which there was no recognition. I release that in grateful gratitude.
Minimal set points of society or Major set points for Living
Beckwith continued: society has set minimal points for which are good for us to follow: don’t cheat, lie and steal. But your calling does not vibrate at these minimal set points. There is no reason to squash yourself to just live by those. You have a greater set of points to live by and resonate with.
This calling does not fit into a small vision for living. It requires much more.
If you find yourself having a lot of difficulties in life change your perspective. Society has trained us to try to fit into ‘what was’. This requires you make yourself wrong, disempower yourself and shrink to fit into ‘what was’.
Instead realize that life is telling you to make some changes. Grow. Evolve. Expand your offerings to life. Live your purpose. Your new self does not fit into that old world. Say a resounding ‘YES’ within your self and mean it with all that you are.
And when your logical mind projects its fears into your future tell it: sshhh, I am in control and I am choosing to do this. When it says “but you do not have enough (fill in the blank)”. Tell it “I am doing it anyway”. When it says “I’m afraid to fail”. Say “I am doing it anyway”.
You are here to live a life of purpose. And Life is always conspiring on your behalf to bring you your highest good and your best life.
Let it. Listen to it. Heed it. Change, evolve and grow into your best life.
When you do this you give permission to someone else to say a resounding ‘YES’ to their own souls.
Blessings and share your thoughts and dreams in the comments.
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: http://www.peterweircave.com/dps/verse.html
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.
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.
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.
I just watched both parts of the Oprah Farewell Spectacular shows. Yes, they have been on my DVR since May 23 and 24. I didn’t want to see the end. Give me a break; have you ever visited the state of denial?
Intertwined with my love, my awe and my tears I feel such a deep and soul-felt gratitude for the multitude of gifts I have received from watching a lot of Oprah Winfrey shows over the years. I have received emotional, physical, mental and spiritual gifts in the forms of insights, ah ahs and self recognitions directly because of who she is. Her own recognition of who she is and her willingness to do what she is born to do while operating in the energy of an amazing grace is what is truly transmitted across the airwaves. It is who she is that people detect without realizing it.
I first found her show while living in Houston after having done the most profound and life-façade-shattering work with a man named Frank Natale, The Natale Institute. It is as if he helped me to excavate the path through the debris that was my upbringing to show me the depths that lay within me then Oprah joined in to show and teach me many steps along the way for the next 25 years.
Oprah is a human being who, it sounds like, never lost touch with her spiritual self. Watching Oprah being herself and getting better somehow made me want to be myself and get better. Thank you. Namaste
It makes me wonder…
What am I to do with the rest of my life?
What is Source’s vision for me that requires relying on a healthy partner?
How deeply will I go within myself to find the path to do so?
Life is a journey. Believing this helps in a person’s ability to 1) persist through the inevitable storms of life and 2) have a larger perspective on current life detail which helps to lessen stress.
Life is never going to remain absolutely awful as it will never always be continuously rosy. We live in a world of contrast where we have the opportunity to do what we want and be who we are. Sometimes difficult things happen in life and it hurts. Depending on the event and our current strength of self it will have an affect on different levels of who we are: emotional, energetics, mental, physical and/or spiritual.
I do not intend to make light of anyone’s circumstances, pains or difficulties. It is truly tough at times and sometimes we need a shoulder to lean on. I am also a spiritual counselor; if you are having a tough time and you want a positive affirmative spiritual prayer (non-denominational) then please contact me. [These are designed to effectively help you enhance your awareness, increase your connection to your Source and begin the healing process at its root foundation.]
Most hard knocks come with some kind of emotional pain since that is one of our senses that helps us to detect that it is difficult. Emotions have a strong energetic vibration kind of like sound does. Sound causes a movement of energy that is detected by the ears. Emotions cause a more visceral movement of energy within the body. It is the major energetic component of the event This energy, when blocked, will store itself in the body. This ends up being that place in your body that always tells you when you are experiencing stress. You know, that shoulder that always hurts or that spot below the shoulder blade that is painful when there is a stressor in life. It tightens up or does more…
In other words when you stop your emotions from being expressed you stop the movement of this energy that is arising from within you so that it can be released. This energy was initiated by some life experience which then became a memory that is associated with this emotion/feeling.
This becomes an unresolved wound. Even if it was 1, 10 or more years ago it is still a wound. It is still affecting your life. You have just forgotten it. Just because you have pushed it aside means that it is affecting your perception of life. You are making decisions that avoid that wound. Your awareness of life is clouded in that area of life. If someone does anything that is remotely close to that original wounding event you will likely have some kind of re-action. The deeper the wound the stronger the re-action. The wound is forgotten but its effects remain.
Even when you have forgotten the event you have not released yourself from it; a part of you is stuck there. This is when people typically will say that it is not important to deal with it. It’s in the past, I can’t do anything about it now. What good would it do? It’s water under the bridge. Just suck it up and go on with life. Real men don’t cry.
All of those common sentiments are okay and life is a choice.
But consider this example: Someone who had taken my classes came to me for personal coaching. As we delved into what she thought was the issue it became obvious that there was a major pain in her past that was unresolved. I worked with her about forgiveness and recorded an audio guided mind cycle for her to use after the session. Within days she contacted me and said that she had not been able to move her head to the side without moving her shoulders with it for 15++ years. She had been to doctors and chiropractors and had found no relief. Then that morning on the way to work when she went to check behind her she easily and naturally rotated her head for the first time in all these years without even thinking about it. That emotional charge was gone. She was freed from that painful part of her past AND she had freed up that energy that was stuck in the past to be used in her present life.
Simply by doing the forgiveness process she released that original emotional pain and now her body had the mobility it is supposed to have.
Forgiveness is not done to let the other person(s) off the hook. Forgiveness is done to let yourself off the hook of that event so that you can move on in life. Once forgiveness is complete you will be able to recall the memory but the emotional charge will be gone…
And the process is not ever as frightening as one might imagine. It is NOT important nor valuable to relive the experience; that is an old school way of doing this process. With the skills I use of approaching it from your emotional/mental/energetic/spiritual levels you will touch upon it just enough to open those emotions so that they drain out of your body. And it is just old energy draining out of you so it is not as painful as your mind may perceive it will be initially. It may seem like a mountain to climb but it always ends up being a molehill.
Plus you will find that you have new energy for your life once this is done. You have freed up that old energy that sucks your current energy because a part of you has had to keep suppressing it.
Many people believe that if you hold onto emotional pains then they become dis-ease within your consciousness which then hardens to became a disease in your body. I tend to agree with this since it is now well known that 90% of all illnesses and headaches are caused by stress. And emotional energy causes stress within the body.
You are an emotional being along with spiritual, physical, mental and other layers. It is important to keep your emotional body fairly clear of old debris so that you can accurately detect what is in your life now using your clear emotional senses.
This is a part of who we are. Check back for other parts including Mental, Spiritual, Intuitive, etc…
I, as always, invite your comments, questions and other concepts.
When we were children growing up our parents, teachers and other authorities gave us permissions to do some things and restrictions to not do some things. As adults we may not be aware that we still have these rules for life, sometimes living within parameters that no longer serve us and, in fact, hold us back from living our greatest life of service. We are having thoughts that we were given years ago.
I lay out this foundation as a way to present this concept:
You have the right to challenge each and every one of your thoughts.
Does this matter? What does this mean? Why bother?
Bottom line: your predominant thought pattern about a particular area of life brings about the matching results in your life. For anyone who saw the movie The Secret this is how the Law of Attraction works. i.e. If there is an area of life that is persistently not working for us then if we are honest with ourself and pay attention to the predominant thoughts and the resulting feelings we will see that we are allowing negative thoughts to rule our day, predominantly.
I mention ‘resulting feelings’ because our thoughts precede us having matching emotions. Our thoughts are our navigation for where we are heading and our emotions are the fuel that propel us there.
Now that all of that is said, back to the topic at hand. Since your thoughts are leading to your life and your thoughts may be simply repeating those life parameters from your parents and other authorities from childhood… maybe, just maybe, some of those thoughts are not leading your life in the best direction for what you most deeply desire to do. Maybe they are not in alignment with who you are.
As a result, I officially give you permission 😉 to challenge your thoughts.
Begin by observing your thoughts. When you notice a thought ask yourself:
Does this thought lift up my energy? Do I feel empowered?
Is this in the direction that I want to go in my life?
If the answer is no, then choose another thought. Choose a thought that does reflect what you want in life. And entertain that thought. Doing this process of replacing unsupportive thoughts with supportive thoughts will end up altering your predominant thought pattern. This in turn will end up altering your predominant emotional pattern. This all leads to you having your life as you most desire it to be.
It is just The Way It Works.
Give it a shot and let me know how it works for you. Leave a comment and let’s talk about it.
Remember: Thoughts become things so choose the good ones.
