“I can’t imagine that” Things we say, Say a whole lot. #WordsMatter

                            #WordsMatter    @amomentswisdom

“I can’t imagine that.”

Someone asks you if you want to go skydiving. You reply quickly ‘I can’t imagine doing that’.

Or, do you want to expand into a bigger or nicer home. “I can’t imagine that.”

Someone describes their life of abundance. You think to yourself “I can’t imagine that for me’. 

It is a good practice to start noticing your automatic replies to things. Wonder if maybe it’s just not for you or maybe it’s an unconscious limit showing itself to be re-looked at to see if that stills applies to who you are now.

These are declarative statements we sometimes make when something seems too big, too outside the box, too much abundance or too (whatever). And sometimes we just do not have interest or curiosity. That’s valid when it truly applies. 

The truth is people say these things without conscious thought. Wherever they were adopted from, they are showing you and others your limits. Recognize that some limits are necessary and some just stop us from growing. If you don’t catch your self or have a friend notice what you say, then you may be giving clues as to why you are not able to change, be who you choose to be or not achieve your goals.

Is it time to challenge your old ways?

What are those automatic thoughts that stop you from who you want to be?

Achieving Greatly through Mind Integration

reserve my spot buttonA Syntheses of 3 Uniquely Powerful Approaches to Empowerment

In this world, we are educated and socialized to use our left brain, which has to do with the logical thinking. However, the ability to alter something in our life exists in accessing the right brain as well, the intuitive mind.

In this class, we will learn to access whole brain thinking, based on applied brain science. This trains us that we can maximize the use of our right, intuitive brain as much as our left, logical brain, becoming more deliberate about our lives, directing our thoughts for internal and external change, and achieving our goals, whether they be career, health, wellness, mental or physical.

When you manage your mind while you discover powerful inner skills you can write your life’s script.

There are multiple perspectives to someone changing from being reactive to life to being able to generate their life.

From an applied science perspective, this is simply a way for you to use your brain as it is designed to cause your life through deliberate choice. This is using left/right brain integration skills.

A quantum perspective enables us to work with the unseen creative forces that cause life so that we direct our own life and achievements.

From an energetic perspective, we learn to directly alter our energies thus directly changing our life and internal state.

What if you could bend the matrix of reality to have the life of your dreams?

We do live in a multidimensional reality

Bend Matrix like tunnel
Bend the Fabric/Matrix of Life

+ We have free will and choice of what we think

+ Our thoughts lead to our life

+ We have within us the skills, once learned, that lighten up life while improving it and allowing for a more fulfilling life of achievement, self-direction and self-management.

To the question at hand… Bending the matrix of reality 

Yes, you can bend reality and you are doing this yet are simply unaware  that your thoughts cause the results in life.

Thus my favorite topic… How do we tap into our inner potential to alter life?

I first learned precise thinking and visualization to cause a change within me or externally in life, in Malaysia as a young engineer living and working in Indonesia. These skills directly empowered me to improve my job performance significantly. And management started noticing my achievements and performance under those stressful and sometimes dangerous situations.

It truly is nice to be able to choose your desired behavior, task performance or pain release through lining up your thoughts in a precise manner leading to achieving with greater ease, less struggle.

Find a better path
Find a better path through reality to what you want in life

When we make choices about what we want in life and practice living them within our own trained imagination we are literally programming our brain neurons to be able to recognize and act upon ‘the goal’ when opportunities start coming to us. It also sends out energy from your body’s energetic system to move the matrix of reality creating a path leading towards the desired result.

This may sound fanciful or too science fiction and it happens to be true.

As an affirmed geek I just luv this stuff. And it is practical, repeatable, follows laws and principle of the unseen forces that cause life, and leads us to becoming who we want to become.and to achieving what we are impelled to achieve.

Procedure to bend reality to be a path to achieve your results:

  • Select a relaxed atmosphere inside or outside
  • Find that ‘just right’ position to sit and get relaxed
  • Close your eyes
  • Place you attention on the airflow going in and out of your nostrils and mouth as you breathe in through your mouth
  • Hold it for a few seconds at the top then exhale deeply
  • Continue breathing in and out as your body and mind relax
  • Tell unwanted thoughts to float on like a cloud in the sky
  • Create in your imagination, using your senses, of having the result you are choosing to create in your life
  • Be sure to generate the emotions of having it. This fuels it
  • Enjoy
Snoopy flying his doghouse taking off

Spend a few minutes in the morning, midday and evening doing this.

40 Days of Intuitively-Guided Abundance Meditations… Directly Increase Abundance thru Consciousness

Abundance in All Areas of Life
To Align your Consciousness to the True Source that is Inherently Abundant is to have any level of abundance you want, desire and dream of. Do you believe that is possible? Why not give it a shot?

An Opportunity to Directly Enhance Your Life through Your Consciousness

             And directly change your abundance in any area of life.

Listen Below

I began doing 40 days of 15 minute intuitively-guided abundance meditations on January 17, 2017. The final one will be on February 25, 2017. These occur at 8am CST via teleconference. Then the better quality audio is uploaded to my site for my audio (meditations, talks, podcasts, contemplations) at www.SoundCloud.com/MindTechnology

Listen to them daily from whenever you start. It is best to hold yourself accountable to be persistent and do day 1 through day 40 in 40 days not missing a single day. If you do then it is best to restart at day 1. This is a gentle lesson to develop an ability to trust yourself that you will do what you say to yourself that you will do. “Be impeccable with your word.” The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz.

The Abundance Book by John Randolph Price ~ an excerpt from the beginning of the book

Read it on a Kindle. I like using mine.

Abundance in this book is defined as an all-sufficiency of supply, a full measure of infinite good. In the invisible, it’s the creative energy of God, also called Substance. In the visible world, it’s that energy made manifest as money and every other good thing required for a free and harmonious life in this third-dimensional world.”

“There are certain principles of abundance, specific fundamentals for Truth, which, when realized, will free an individual from lack and limitation. Since there are spiritual precepts, a program for prosperity based on Truth can’t be implemented by those with greed, avarice, or selfishness in consciousness.”

“… You must think of money and any other material desire or possession simply as an outer symbol of the inner supply. [sic] The Idea is an all-sufficiency of supply to meet every need with a Divine surplus in your individual life. [sic] But the money isn’t the supply. Rather, it’s your consciousness of God as your abundance that constitutes your supply.”

Contact me for the Companion Prosperity Journal.

Donations for these meditations are welcome. I want to get this to more people. And I’m considering doing another series when this one is done. Donations will help. Thanks

The Abundance Book
The Abundance Book by John Randolph Price

Today, I began day 1 of 40 days of 15 minute meditations based on this classic abundance program. This is a way to find freedom and abundance from completely different concepts about where abundance comes from. Abundance in all areas of life, love, relationships. success, dollars, material possessions and more.

This is part of a 6-week empowerment class that a team of 4, including me, began January 16, 2017: Say YES To Your Heart’s Desire in 2017 – Facebook Page. This class will break into 3 Groups to help people focus on their goal area outside of class: Career/Business Action Team, Calling In The One Relationships, and Health and Well-Being. If you are in the Austin area contact me to join us. 

If you want to simply listen to each day’s meditations they will be posted on www.SoundCloud.com/MindTechnology. If you want the dial-in information to listen by phone contact me through this page.

There is a companion Prosperity Journal. If you want to participate at that level contact me through this page and indicate so.

Awakenings in Life Bubble Up From A Heart, Seeking to Open the Mind to a More Expansive Life and…

Heart Energies Awaken and Transform

To open your heart is to expand your field of vision in life, your depth of perception and your ability to receive love, joy, gratitude, well-being and to connect deeply with others.

Awakenings arise from the heart intelligence.

When you shut off your heart center all of that expansiveness closes off.

The world becomes black and white, stale and limited. You go back to judgment of others and a belief in separation.

This is the domain of the logical mind which is the source of the egoic awareness. Its purpose is to not change…at all costs keeping all current life pains, limitations, problems.

Each of us has multiple intelligence centers in our human system. The brain has two and the body has many with two as the brain for the body’s intelligence centers. Each intelligence center has a different energy that arises with a thought to help us move the idea into action. More to come…

Set your intent & Choose your life deliberately to stay focused…

take the first step
Take the first step into that scary idea.

Someone who has come to some events shared with me that his intention is to HAVE intention. He shared more that he wants to improve his approach to life to do other things that will help him to deliberately focus his life.

First off, I can relate. We all can relate.

We are all born with a resource full of incredible inherent skills that let us choose and focus our life as precisely and deliberately as we dare to and to stretch as far as we are willing to stretch in this life.

Plus we all feel that internal universal nudge within to make a change here and there…until we successfully squelch it.

To have the desire to set your intent and live more deliberately is a transition step for the people who choose to live life at a different level, authentically and deliberately. You use a different set of inner empowerment skills (intent, choice, clarity, focus, listen, ease, to name a few) to drive life from within rather than the external modus operandi such as stress, over-pushing, force, make it happen, etc. Using the inner skills stirs things up and opportunities will begin to appear while clarity is received. That is when you take external action. Be prepared and ready for the right opportunity.

Second, thank you for trusting me. I appreciate when someone shares with me. I believe what we hold within us is more valuable than anything external to us. Thus when someone shares from within I value their truth.

I will know for him his higher truth while he is finding his inner inspiration (Spirit Within) to embrace this next step towards personal freedom and expression.

I find that I feel best about my life and move forward when I do this:

  1. Read my written list of life results and imagine them to be already true, daily or more often.
  2. I take my personal time: Several minutes to do inner focusing, finding calm within me, pose questions, get in sync, and imagine my day.
  3. Deep breathe hourly to flush out the stale energies and bring in refreshing energies.

So, let’s take a cue from this man and set an intent for the week or month or maybe for your life or for this phase of it. It does not have to be elaborate. Make it a clear focus that resonates within you. Write it down next to your list of goals.

Take some time, right now, and write out an intent for your life. What comes to you? Craft some results you desire to have in life written as if you already have them. Write what you would like to experience in life.

And in case this seems too much consider: Why not try something different? One small inner change results in noticeable changes in life.

Thanks Friend

Become Your Egg-sellent Self. Break open the shell limiting your good…

Chick exiting shell
Build Your Strength for an Expansive Life

Be a Supportive Environment

You don’t crack open a shell of an egg that you want to become a chick. The developing chick has to build its strength by standing and pecking its way out of its current life box. The nest and hen keep it warm, at the perfect temperature for Life to grow and emerge.

Breathe Life into Your Inner Strength

We know what happens if you crack it open way too soon. Breakfast. And if you crack it open just before its ready it may not have the strength it needs to thrive as a unique expression of Life.

Break Open Your Own Shell in Life

For Yourself,,,

All of us go through growth phases, transformative experiences and growing pains. What matters is we keep stoking our Inner Light to be at the right temperate to grow and be the fuel for it. Foster the right environment to flourish from the passion of the vision within you.

Affirm: I am enough to grow into my best life

And for others

Keep your friends and family warm in their times of growing and support them in developing that inner strength to become the potential that resides within them. See that for them and hold the conscious space that encourages Life to grow and emerge.

Affirm: I spread open the wings of my heart to support others

And nurture friends who do that for you. Imagine having a nest of friends supporting each other to grow and emerge into their best lives sharing the fun and aggravation of growing into who they came to be in this life and the purpose they came to do.

Hmm… Maybe life is just a continuous growing phase and we have the throttle.

‘The Miraculous Power of Letting Go’ Talk, Discussion & Spiritual Mind Treatment, Sunday Sept 4

The Miraculous Power of Letting Go

We live within a Law of Mind that reacts to our thinking.

“We are all immersed in an aura of our own thinking. This aura is the direct result of all that we have ever said, thought or done; it decides what is to take place in our life; it attracts what is like itself and repels what is unlike itself. [sic]

We have this law in our hands to do with as we will. We can draw what we want only as we let go of the old order and take up the new; and this we must do to the exclusion of all else. This is no weak man’s job but an undertaking for a strong, self-reliant soul; and the end is worth the effort. The person who can hold his thought one-pointed is the one who will obtain the best results.”

~ Creative Mind and Success by Dr. Ernest Holmes      [p 18]

I recently had a direct experience of choosing to walk through this process for my own life. Thanks to a friend I had 3 days at a lake house where I let go like dumping the contents of a household into the trash. I dumped the trash and debris of life from within my inner household. The changes in my life are still happening two weeks later. A change into a better sleep pattern. There’s now room for new ideas and they are abundant. There’s now room for good feelings within me and they are abundant. There’s now room for greater results to occur in my life and they are becoming abundant. There is a noticeable increase in clarity and focus in my life endeavors. And weight is starting to fall off with my natural appetite at about one-third of what it was.

Affirmation: I am grateful that I have the free will and courage to let go of life’s debris thus open to life’s gifts, guidance and miracles.

Come join us this Sunday for a talk, discussion and meditation concerning this.

Meetup: Align to Your Good thru Spiritual, Science, Meditation Location is at this site once you join.

How to Increase Holistic Wellness | Published June 2016

How to Increase Holistic Wellness

How to Increase Holistic Wellness

by Lamar Irwin

In this physical world, wellness levels are generally measured by how fit people are and how good their life appears. Yet there is much more to a person’s quality of life than meets the eye.

The most important measurements for wellness are found in the quality of the unseen aspects within people. How open to life is someone’s heart? How much of an emotional and spiritual balance does one maintain? What is the quality of underlying thoughts people have about themselves and their lives?

While people generally measure wellness through what can be seen, they miss the true source. With an eye toward a holistic perspective, wellness is an optimal state of being in life, in mind, in heart and in body. The more people experience being in balance within their own selves, to their own expectations, the more they are living in a state of well-being.

It is easy to observe physical growth and compare it to statistics in order to evaluate progress. Parents do this as their kids grow up and go to the doctor when it does not measure up to standards. Teens, as they grow into adulthood, learn to do the same for themselves. Yet how are people to observe, measure and evaluate their unseen inner aspects?

Each person learns to identify his or her unique signs of well-being. It can be seen in the calmness of breath, a gentle heart rate, good feelings within the body, ease with life and thoughts that are more optimistic.

The wonderful truth about the way humans are designed is that they can be self-correcting, initiating change in life starting from within the self. When there is an imbalance, changes can be made. This is empowering to the people who have that fire inside to live a great life.

Take time to consider the quality of wellness in different areas of life. What areas are working and which need help? Consider physical, spiritual, emotional, mental, relationships, play, self-care, financial and business. Ask questions: What needs to change? What feels out of balance within? What is always a struggle? Is there a pattern in life that is uncomfortable? Is there an inner sense that something needs attention? What generates common complaints? Is there a dream that was left behind because of fear? What is unresolved that is blocking the good in life?

Use the inherent inner ability to select thoughts and intent to make change easier instead of difficult. Approach this from a state of curiosity. Consider making changes to be a new project instead of being some horribly difficult task.

Five Steps to Get There

Establish an inner readiness for change. Ask: Is there a willingness to change? Then make a choice to let go of the problem to make room for this new project. If there is resistance to letting go then contemplate what that is. Try writing it out and talking with a friend or a professional with the intent to release it.

Choose what is wanted instead. Ask: What would be better than what currently is? Deliberately select what it is and be specific. For example: have an extra $500 a week, an internal sense of well-being, a healed heart from love pains, increased self-esteem, peaceful thoughts, increased creativity, clarity about what is important in life or be more loving to themselves. Clear choices produce clear outcomes.

Gain dominion over thoughts. Ask: What thoughts support this change? Imagine what thoughts a person may have who already have this outcome; adopt them. Identify current thoughts that do not support this and imagine pulling them like weeds in a garden. Then imagine planting seeds of these new deliberately chosen thoughts to have them grow in mind. Write these thoughts down that resonate with what is desired in life. Read frequently.

Imagine it to create it. Take time daily to relax and imagine what life will be like when this occurs. Be in a peaceful environment. Sit comfortably, close the eyes and do some deep belly breathing to inhale a great life and exhale the tiredness and old energies. Imagine the desired outcomes as if they are already present in life.

Believe and Receive. Develop a belief that supports the outcome. Read uplifting messages, poems or writings to upgrade what they accept in life, choosing better results while rejecting lesser results. This fosters a consciousness that allows the new desired outcomes to be received.

Using this inner-driven change process requires that one only stays focused on the desired outcomes. Do not try and figure out how it will happen. Allow and receive new ideas on the how-to steps, and then do them.

People have found a customized fountain of youth using this process. Their clarity of life is renewed. Energies are awakened. Achievement is established as their norm while their heart centers are reborn to life’s unconditional love and infinite streams of possibilities.
