I lived in Austin, Texas for more than 24 years. Besides having a natural beauty to it and a progressive vibe, It is a haven for allergies year-round. So much so that the weather forecast includes an allergy forecast for the current allergens.
Watching the news, I noticed them say things like ‘If you have lived here for 5 to 7 years you will get cedar fever’. Sometimes they would say ‘this is cedar fever season’. Cedar trees shake off their cedar pollens. They look like a massive cloud of dust coming off each tree and there are a lot of cedar trees.
Since I do my best to monitor and choose the thoughts that I let into my mind, I pick this stuff apart.
In Austin I started sneezing 5 or more times about every 2 weeks or so. It is funny what people would say.
“Are you catching a cold?” No
“Do you have allergies?” No
“The flu is going around. I hope you’re not catching it.” I’m not catching the flu. I haven’t had the flu in decades.
The logical mind needs to understand things. Their brain is programmed to connect the act of sneezing with a health problem of some sort which inevitably becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. Who wants that?
An untrained mind cannot handle that it is just a series of sneezes. The logical mind does not like change and not knowing. It has a need to explain everything. Nothing can be left up to the unknown. Why? The logical mind, the basis for the egoic awareness, needs to know. Your Mind does not have to know. The ego will come up with normal thoughts and sayings in culture to conclude as to why Lamar is sneezing so many times…even if it is wrong.
All because most minds cannot handle hanging out in the unknown. What a loss for so many. In the unknown hangout zone exists the portal for new ideas.
The intuitive mind and the heart center are not driven by that need to understand things. It does not need to know why. They are portals for new thoughts and feelings.
I finally started saying ‘no’ to their questions by saying that I think my body began doing this to keep the allergens, the pollens, out of my sinuses. That fed their need to know while maintaining my control over what thoughts I accept into me. I am in charge of that. No one else is unless I give them permission.
The body has its own intelligence and it knows how to handle some of these things…as long as we do not buy into them.
In some classes we do Mental Housekeeping to help bring forth a mindfulness of what thoughts people are having that are not their thoughts; those are thoughts from others that we have accepted as true. Therefore, they are now ours unless we do some mental housekeeping where we notice our thoughts and choose whether they benefit us, or not.
It is your mind.
They are your thoughts.
Like closet Spring cleaning,
give back to others their thoughts that do not serve you.
Keep or trash your thoughts.
It is Your Life. Your choice.
You cannot hire a maid to come and do this Spring cleaning. LOL
Thought Creates Reality with The Natale Institute is a class I took in Houston after living in the Far East right out of college. I was about 28 years old and an electrical engineer and searching for deep answers about life. This was eye opening. It was six weeks of learning how thought creates reality through somewhat straight forward and lots of outside the box ideas that helped to change my life, my thinking about life’s possibilities, and my modus operandi
I still use these concepts, modified and added to, to set the direction I am going in life.
New ideas are always great to try out. Though, what really matters is results and experiences. That is when it impacted me to shake up the way I thought about me, my life and possibilities.
Don’t adopt my beliefs. Use these new ways and witness your own results.
In a class, I tell people to not adopt my beliefs blindly. Consider your life to be a scientific experiment. A scientist changes an ingredient in the lab and witnesses the changed result. I encourage students to use the concepts. Then witness the resulting changes in life. When people make their own beliefs as a result of this, those beliefs stick and positively effect their life.
How flexible are you? No, not physically…
One of the biggest things I learned was to make sure I keep my thoughts and beliefs flexible. We age by trapping ourselves into a box that worked when we were 20-something. But at 50-something life is too tightly defined and new adventures are not given a second thought.
For example: When I got my driver’s license and a car the cost of gas was $0.57 per gallon. If I go to fill up with gas and get upset that gas costs so much more, then I am not living in life as it is. My old belief does not fit into current world I live in. I have created a mental situation that will always upset me. Personally, I do not want to set myself up for that upset. So, I change my beliefs to keep up.
We always have a choice.
Remain in our box, meaning the limits of what we think is possible, is one choice. This is when we feel cramped and our wings need to expand. Ever felt like you could not expand yourself in life? Kind of like claustrophobia in an energetic box that is too small. A person might become an old curmudgeon holding onto the past too tightly. Ever met someone set in their ways and beliefs so tightly? Ever been that someone?
It just pisses us off if reality now does not match reality as we think it should be. Take that as a sign to change something within.
So, what’s the other choice? Update our thoughts and beliefs to match the current NOW in which we live. Are you flexible in your thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors? I found practicing these concepts I have been teaching and coaching for a while, help me feel younger than my physical age.
I have to remind myself when I get lazy about it…Lamar, remember. Keep going forward. Stay up with the times. Society evolves and so can you.
I am willing to have new experiences that are outside my life box. In fact, if my box feels way too tight or I am filled with fears and trepidation about my future…I will seek out a new experience that will blow my limiting life box to smithereens. Do not get me wrong. It is always scary. And I choose to do it anyway.
Kabooey! More room for personal freedom and expansion.
There is no greater threat to the critics and cynics and fearmongers than those of us who are willing to fall because we have learned how to rise. With skinned knees and bruised hearts; we choose owning our stories of struggle, over hiding, over hustling, over pretending. When we deny our stories, they define us. When we run from struggle, we are never free. So we turn toward truth and look it in the eye. We will not be characters in our stories. Not villains, not victims, not even heroes. We are the authors of our lives. We write our own daring endings. We craft love from heartbreak, compassion from shame, grace from disappointment, courage from failure. Showing up is our power. Story is our way home. Truth is our song. We are the brave and brokenhearted. We are rising strong.
Brené Brown is a Professor and Social Researcher at the University of Houston. I find the specifics she provides about the human condition to be enlightening and extremely useful. She approaches topics that are often avoided: shame, vulnerability, friendship, sharing, joy, perfectionism, more… I find the specifics that come from her research helps me know better ways to relate with myself and others.

Seniors exercise their brain
I learned these skills at age 23 and for the most part have used these skills throughout my life. I am now considered a senior and my brain is sharp, my thinking is clear, memory is good. I have mental flexibility which I consider it to be valuable so that I don’t get stuck in the past fighting the ‘new ways’ of those youngsters. Adapt or stagnate.
These are the most types of people who utilize my services
Professionals who want to improve their finances and career so they can improve their family’s wellbeing.
Nurses, Social Workers, and people with a heart of service. Those who have a heart of service love these techniques. They find that first, it helps them control them self before meeting with a client or patient. Second, they can help to relax a person using the simple relaxation method.
I gave a lunchtime talk at a school for learning challenged children in San Antonio. The owner told me of a study that showed a link between how the teacher feels when s/he walks in to serve and the effectiveness of their results. She learned to use a quick self-centering method and then walked into the room.
Second, these techniques are easily understandable so they could convey some of this to help another person calm down, relax, focus more, etc.
Out of thousands, I have had a handful of doctors dare to take the class. Funny how experts do not need to learn other things. Two of them, only because their girlfriends told them to. When in a class that includes mental healing training, I always put them on the spot: Do you heal the patient? Or do you set the environment for the innate healing mechanisms of the body can do the healing? Of course, it is the latter. And that is what this mind training can help with a lot.
One doctor began an ER center in south Austin and we talked about using the techniques for his medical staff.
Students who want to study less while improving their grades. The results are always great. This studying method causes superior concentration, comprehension and understanding. It indexes learned information so that you have easier recall using the test-taking method.
One friend went from the bad Dean’s list for grades and was surprised at his graduation ceremony to have graduated with honors.
Your brain is the CPU, central processing unit, of your body. It manages all functions, senses, autonomic systems, nerves, etc. I have stories of nerves re-growing, dire diagnoses being reversed, tumors shrinking and disappearing, extreme pain being controlled to become no pain, skin tags disappearing, and so much more.
Train your brain to access the whole brain and live a better life.
There is an intelligence to the way we are designed. We have a brain that has multiple modes that, when we use it as such, allows us to live a better and better, creative and powerful life.
We just were never given the Brain Functioning Handbook.
Luckily through mystics, through empirical evidence and now through the wonderful studies in neuroscience we can understand how to more effectively use our brain.
Briefly, we have at least two brain modes that we access through our mental direction and conscious breath. The Outer Action Mode is for this world of form, using our five physical senses and taking action. This is generally a left brain hemisphere function. The Inner Creative Mode is where you can more easily direct your thoughts, emotions and thus your life. This is generally a right brain hemisphere function.
Many of my blog posts give different perspective on our Brain Modes including:
In a bad economy you have to get noticed to be hired, to be promoted and to get a raise. In big classes you have to find a way to excel above all the other students who want to achieve. To live a life that is true to your purpose and to move past your fears these are the skills required.
Stand out or Become the norm
Most people on the planet just do things the way everyone else does them. This is what sets the norm. Why try to fit into someone else’s norms and expectations of you? As we know from the definition of insanity – doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results – you will keep getting what you are getting if you keep doing what you are doing. The same applies as to how to move beyond the societal and expected ‘norms’.
Empower a student – Improve our future
Consider a minor investment in your future… one that will keep giving the rest of your life.
If you know of any groups of students or school systems that want to empower their students then we can arrange separate classes. If someone wants to do a new study on the effectiveness of this system then contact me.
Be more effective in life.
Most people think this after taking a test…
Instead, you can walk out knowing that you used the 3 pass test taking method to access the answers…
Not just for students
As a baby boomer I am so glad to have learned these skills at age 24. I notice that my mind works extremely close to my younger mind. Sharp, focusable, trainable, and creative, to list a few nice qualities.
The saying goes “Use It or Lose It”. These skills exercise your brain, yes. AND it goes much further than that. When you learn that you can choose your thoughts to affect change within you, it becomes another dimension of what is possible in your life.
This is for any person, educator, company, training organization, school, senior group or other who wants to exercise their brain with superior concentration, comprehension, understanding, and recall.
Those heart pains, those breakups, those friends who disappeared from you, those soured dreams, and those griefs just get buried.
With each burial you suppress your vulnerability
(willingness to be ‘seen’ as is. No façade).
With each burial you lose your ability to feel as deeply
again. Your friends, family, and lovers get less of your love and self-expression.
With each burial you begin to fear intimacy (in-to-me-I-see).
You do not share what is in your heart.
With each burial you lose touch with your internal life guidance system, gps.
With each burial an authentic part of you dies off.
With each burial you feel more alone. Your ONEness with others
originates in your heart center.
With each burial you can only do what you have already done. Life expansion is squashed. Curiosity dies. Exploration ends. Self-expansion stops.
With each burial your seeking a better life withers away.
With each burial you build your walls higher and higher.
With each burial you lose a piece of you.
With each burial you put a foot into your own grave.
With each burial you justify becoming a part of the haze of normality. I consider this sort of a zombie-like state doing what you’re supposed to be doing, being as you are expected to be, doing what you have always done, and never heeding what is in your heart center to do and to become.
You become untethered from your soul because a closed heart prevents
that deep connection.
It then hurts to be truly ‘seen’, to put yourself out there
again. So, you don’t.
You are disabling your heart strengths. You lose touch with
your inherent ability to love, to see a friend as they are, and you become less
of a Light in this world.
What does this do to you the next time you feel that ‘falling
in love’ feeling? You cannot fall into your heart to feel and express that love
as deeply as you used to. You draw people into your life who also have shut off
much of their creative self-expression which requires heart skills.
What does this do to you when you meet that possibly great friend? You do not call or answer him. You are unable to experience that part of your heart center. Its energies are clogged and stuck.
What does this do to that dream that has been whispering to
How does this hamper that informed yet risky move you know
you need to make?
These are just some impacts of how an unhealed heart affects your life.
Dance like nobody’s watching; love like you’ve never been hurt. Sing like nobody’s listening; live like it’s heaven on earth.
~ Mark Twain
Expressions of love from your open heart
To feel what is in your heart is an expression of love.
To follow your internal life GPS is an expression of love.
To hang with a friend is an expression of love.
To make love is an expression of love.
To open up to romance is an expression of love.
To love fully like never before is an expression of love.
To follow your dreams is an expression of love.
To listen to your hunches, your intuition, is an expression of love.
Our eyes see the world with limits. Light is measured on the electromagnetic spectrum. The range of 380 to 700 nanometers is visible light which is only 0.0035 percent of the spectrum. There is so much more to the world that we do not see than what we do see. *Source below
Infrared light exists but it takes special glasses to see
it. It is a lower frequency than visible light.
At higher frequencies than visible light are ultraviolet
light, X-rays, and gamma rays.
I have seen humans glow
In my classes, sessions, and spiritual communities I have met many people who see auras, scientifically now known as human glow; just saying.
First time for me. I was volunteering for a workshop and intensely focused on a former mentor and workshop leader, Wilbert Alix, while he was talking about a particular subject. It was like I tuned everything else out and was energetically laser focused on his face, voice, and energies. Suddenly I saw a glow around him. I do not recall the color, yet. It stayed there until I got into my mind about ‘wow, I just saw his aura’. That pulled me out of the intense focus.
Years later I saw it a few more times around certain people but I could not yet see it when I chose to.
Once I was strongly guided to begin doing P.E.A.C.E. Sessions I began to feel the energy coming off a person. This energy would guide me as to what to clear and what to strengthen and empower.
I had a surprise in the first session. I did the opening things I do to tune into my guidance and moved to my friend, Monika, on a massage table. I am totally guided by the knowing intelligence in these sessions. It is the most I can ultimately let go of EVERYTHING. I closed my eyes to sense where to go with her energy.
I actually saw the shape of the energies all over her body. Some were weak. Some were stronger. Some had dings. Some was actually closed off. I ended up pulling out what I called ‘threads of discontent’ from her back. Afterwards she said she had fibromyalgia and her back was as relaxed as it was before that affliction. I knew her personally and she confirmed that never came back. I do not see full color, yet. It is more like shades of gray light.
That happens in every session. I get to verify my guidance when talking with the client afterwards. Though their eyes were closed they knew where I was working and tell me about what they felt during that. It matches with what I was picking up on and perceiving.
But we can see the human glow
Once you have become comfortable with meditation, visualization, insights, and self-awareness there are certain inner powers that come forth. For me, I found a way to see the unseen by meditating deeply to get in alignment with my unseen self and the All One, so to speak. Thus the spectrum of visible light is expanded when we are using your inner eyesight.
I go to YouTube
sometimes to just peruse and see what intrigues me.
At times, I like
watching singing competitions to witness that moment when a really good singer
‘gets it’ within themselves that they have a real talent. They just broke out
of a too-small life box. I find some of those cause goose pimples (why is it
called that?), bring a tear, or some reaction indicating it’s a Real Moment. I
think of Real Moments as unmasked, authentic, and intimate moments where the
person is standing in the strength that comes from being vulnerable.
To put it spiritually, it is when I get to witness someone’s Inner Light turn on. They’ve found their groove. It is awesome when, in class or a coaching session, I get to witness someone ‘get it’. They have just expanded their field of possibilities and felt their own inner power.
It’s like a spark
that is momentary. Maybe it is when that person opens their inner door to a new
To the matter at
At times on YouTube, I want to learn or be reminded of something deeper. Recently I came across Oprah interviewing Caroline Myss.
Intuition, Power and Grace – Super Soul Sunday
I found the sections marked below resonated with me and thought I’d share.
What is Spirit? 3:17 – 4:30
It’s the part of you
that is seeking meaning and purpose.
The part of you that
is drawn to hope and believes in goodness.
I will add what I
believe, learned from a philosophy Science of Mind
that the Spirit within you is the source for renewal of self. It is the pure
unadulterated Life Force. It has never been hurt, damaged, or changed in anyway
and can never be. It is the source for your life GPS.
I remind myself that
this Life Force, Spirit is within me, around me, and as me. It is what connects
me to ONEness of Life. From this sort of template for my best life and my best
self, I can cause a renewal in my mind, my heart, my belief, myself to grow
into My Self, my life, my health (and others), .
In a spiritual mind
treatment that I do for people, I call upon this Life Force to come through
this template of whole, perfect and complete to cause change.
The physical world is nothing more than our classroom. 4:36-6:58
Will you make
choices that enhance your spirit or drain your power?
Each of your choices
will enhance your spirit or it will drain your spirit.
You’ve blocked your
If you have life, you have purpose. 6:59-17:16
Each of us is born
with a purpose for being alive.
Each of us has a
Sacred Contract which is a spiritual document that our soul recognizes.
My adlib: You cannot understand this using logic. This is a soul level knowing that we sense, we hear it’s whisper, we feel its nudge. Sometimes we are lucky enough to meet someone who knows us at that level. I was fortunate once for that soul level friend. He made a notable difference in my life.
The more we cling to living a predetermined logical life, a familial acceptable version of us, the more distant is its voice. This is intelligence from the Life Force that is dialed into our GPS. We have to develop a trust of our inner spirit to listen to it.
The mistake most of us make is to use our logical mind to judge it out of our field of possibilities. It’s too scary. Fear of change will make us stay in unfulfilling relationships and barely livable situations. It’s not acceptable to my family and friends. It doesn’t make sense. All of these are examples of how the ego, the consciousness from our logical mind, will give us any thought, feeling, fear, memory, other to stop us from changing.
There is a way to cut through that mental never-ending do-loop of thoughts that trap our creative freedom of expression. Sit somewhere and take some deep breaths to relax. Now breathe into your heart center. Now breathe into your soul; imagine doing it. Stay there for some moments. Ask it what is good for you. Listen for the whisper, the nudge, the inkling of an idea.
Now, back to the program…
It is a big deal in
life and just takes some inner learning to clear the communication channel
between your soul and your mind and heart awareness.
One atom is as
purposeful as our planet.
Have no judgments,
no expectations, and give up the need to know what happens tomorrow. Whoa!
Be fully present and
fully appreciate what you have now.
My adlib: This is such an important skill to develop for yourself. I often remind myself that the best state to be in is grateful and joyful. Many systems say this is the place to receive your good, to receive the goals you have set, to have what you have asked Life for.
What if that awful
thing that happened in your life was actually the best thing that happened in
Maybe you didn’t get
what your prayed for or set as a goal because it would have turned out bad for
you. God/Spirit/Life was protecting you.
When Caroline is talking about God, she refers to the Essence of Life, the Force for Good that causes life, Spirit, Universe. This actually aligns with my spiritual philosophy…from the Science of Mind by Ernest Holmes. This is an empowering philosophy of Universal Laws and how to work with them.
Therefore, she says God is Law. This is order in life and it runs in accordance with the unseen, yet repeatable, spiritual laws that cause life.
Think about it. Normally, to change something in life there is a logical process to do so. We all know how to do this, well.
This is a different approach to manifest something you want in life. You will be tapping into the Laws of Life that are unseen. Everything comes from the unseen realm and eventually returns to the unseen realm. There are Laws that govern the unseen realm just like there are natural laws that govern the physical, the seen realm.
Try this out as a personal experiment. Choose something light, fun, and with no serious attachment. When you have it in life you will be proving to yourself that it works. Repeat your experiment on the second item. Once you have proven to yourself that it works…Then pick something that is not so light or has some heavy attachment.
This is also a great way to start expanding your life beyond the box in which you are currently living. This is an alternative way to live the life you desire.
Get a piece of paper and pen and sit somewhere comfy.
Write down the negative item or circumstance. Make it personal using the first person. Example: At work, I feel ____. My relationship needs something. ___ isn’t working for me anymore.
Observe the thoughts you have about this negative item in your life. Have you had thoughts or beliefs that align with this result in life? Be honest with yourself. Write this below the negative item.
Take a moment to become mindful of the connection between
your thoughts and this result in life. Do you see a connection? Is there a
feeling within you that matches this result in life? In other words, what
feeling do you have that comes with this undesired result?
Reflect for some more moments… How does this make you feel?
Above the negative item you wrote, write ‘I do not want this
in my life’ or something like that.
Turn it around. Take ownership of creating what you want in
If you had the option to change this negative item, would
Answer that, then consider the following…
Think about this undesired feeling. How would you rather feel in that area of life? What feeling do you want to have concerning this area of life when it improves? Imagine feeling it.
Skip a line or 2, then write ‘I choose this result in my
life’ or something like that.
Below that, write ‘I feel (your chosen feeling)’.
Now, consider this item you do not want anymore. What would
you like instead that will make you feel how you want to feel? Just play with
it. Play goes with imagination. You get to make up something new in life in
order to manifest it. Could be fun. It could work.
Write down what you desire to have in life, on the next
Here comes the thread that weaves together the way you
choose to feel with the new desired item in life.
You might take some time with this.
What thoughts align with having this desired feeling that leads to the chosen positive result? This is you backtracking to see what possible thoughts could support having the positive result you want. I have found that it works to think of someone who already has close to what I want to manifest. What thoughts must they have which lead to them having this? Adjust those for you. I actually, once, asked a friend who had a relationship I liked: “What are your thoughts and beliefs about this?” I then adopted her thoughts…they worked for her. Why not?
Use the power of your mental focus
Sit back, take a deep breath, and relax. Imagine that you already have this positive desired result. Feel it. What does it smell like? Taste like? Look like? Sound like? Feel like? Do you feel the feeling you chose you want to feel as you imagine it? This is your mental playground. Play with it.
In this, contemplate a new thought or new belief that supports your desired outcome. This thought would naturally lead to all of this becoming real. Make it up. Play with it. It does not have to be perfect. You can always change it with more clarity.
Once you think and feel you have it, write it down on the next line.
Ideas to fine-tune it
Finally, craft the thought into a more empowering thought.
This is done by:
Stating it as if you have it now. Not when something else happens. Now. It is done and in your life.
Do not use words that separate you from having it now, such as may, might, will, hope, etc.
Weave the feeling into the statement. I am thrilled with my new car. It feels good going to my job. I really like the new person I’m dating. I love visiting and exploring Bali.
Don’t make it heady. Make it visceral so that you feel it when you think of it. This fuels it into becoming real.
Write this thought next. This is a supportive thought.
Past precedent does not dictate future outcomes.
Letting go of the old
Now you have a piece of paper with what you do not want, its supporting thought and feeling. When you feel absolutely ready to change it, use a red marker to make a definite X over it with a feeling of ‘it’s gone. I am ready for the new’. The red X is a strong signal to your mind.
Tear that part off. To release something and its energy, it is best to either burn it or flush it. Do either safely while letting go of it in your mind and your heart.
Creating the new
What I tend to do to make sure I am focusing more and more on my chosen desired item, is to write it on an index card and carry the final statement with me. For some, I have written it on post-it notes and stuck it on the mirror, the door frame, the car dashboard, on the electronic calendar, anywhere to keep it in your face.
At any time you think of the old unwanted…quickly recall your new chosen thought with the feeling that goes with it.
Be gently vigilant about doing this. In a short time, the old unsupportive thought and feeling fade away as you are choosing the new supportive thought and feeling.
This is your new thought. Own it. Repeat it and imagine it often and it will become your normal thought which will lead to it happening in your life.
There is a power for good in this life that is all around you, within you, and supporting you.
You have now initiated a change you want. Be patient.
As long as you continue to choose it and feel it despite no indication of it happening, it will happen. You are taking action every time you imagine it and feel it as if it is in your life now.
Remember this is an experiment. Keep at it and watch what ideas come, doors open, meet the right person, other ‘coincidences’…and sometimes it just comes right to you.
When you have manifested this, take time to congratulate yourself and contemplate how it came about. Then, you are ready for the next thing to change in your life.
If you are reading this, you are ahead of the game. Most will sit in their haze of normality instead of doing something different…which leads to having something different. You are taking your power back to live a more desired life.
I met Michael Thurman and his partner at the time socially, at a MEETUP Group. We met some and talked over coffee. They invited me over for Thanksgiving. I always bring home made pecan pies.
After a great meal experience we all relaxed and chatted as their miniature pig, bird, cat, and dog found attention. The cute hyper billy goats were outside in the pen. A property line was either the Guadalupe or Colorado river.
He told me about being in pain his entire life. We talked and I told him about training his mind to handle pain in order to eliminate it. After all he had been cut, medicated and diagnosed he did not really believe what I was saying would work.
I gave testimonials and my own experiences and answered his questions.
He has a spinal implant that intercepts the pain signals going to his brain with a control knob implanted under his skin where he can adjust the level. You are not in pain if that chemical signal does not reach the brain.
As I was getting ready to go, he told me he was taking morphine twice a day and taking several Oxycontin pills daily. I do not know how he functioned so well on his small farm and restoring furniture business, some for Hollywood sets. Beautiful work.
I offered him four phone sessions if he wanted to control his pain with his mind.
Michael was eager to get out from under the system that took an implanted device and two toxic medications to maybe get his pain under control.
The only side effect of managing your pain through
directed thought is increased self-mastery.
Overview of the sessions with him
I had emailed him a manual. I taught him how pain travels in the body, gets amplified by our thoughts and stress level, and the relaxation response. Also, pain is not continuous; it is in pulses of signals sent from the body to the brain where it is registered as pain. It is a series of pulses with a pause in between pulses. An Eastern technique is to identify, then expand the pauses. I like this PHD technique since the pain is gone quickly.
Then, I prepared him for the upcoming mind training to relax mind, body, and energy; the Empowering Whole Relax, i.e. The Wisdom Method.
I guided him through this forty-minute thought-focusing cycle to relax his body, mind, and inner energies and enter into the optimal brain level for releasing pain while reprogramming the brain neurons to make changes for this particular skill to become natural.
He received the 2 audio files to practice and deepen the mental program until the next session.
Michael reported that he turned off the neuro-stimulator implant after our first session. Yea! Michael is ahead of the game. Good.
We discussed his pain level which was already
reduced. Then into more detail of the causes for his pain. From that, I told
him some about visualizing those areas of the body to heal and how to do that.
PHD – Pain Headache Discomfort Shift
As with all these mind smart skills, I first explain what we are going to do to his logical mind. This is educational and to make sure it goes along with the new stuff for the brain.
Then I helped him upgrade his brain with this new Smart Skill. I invited him to sit comfortably then guided him into the optimal brain upgrade mode using his breath and mental focus. As I am speaking the new Smart Skill to him, the brain’s neural pathways begin to alter representing the new skill is programmed and usable.
Through this PHD Smart Skill, Pain, Headache, Discomfort shift into ease and comfort. This is a short, less than 5 minutes, process to eliminate the pain. As you continue to use it, the process becomes quicker.
We discussed the optimal way to use this PHD quick pain relief technique. I gave him some other pointers and we ended the session.
He went to the South Austin pain clinic for his regular appointment.
His doctor and PA were surprised at the decrease
in his pain level.
His pain doctor was thrown off guard when Michael said he wanted to start reducing the morphine and other meds. The doctor and PA asked him how he could do that.
Michael told them that he is working with a man (me) who is teaching him how to direct his thoughts to eliminate his pain. The Physician Assistant told Michael I am getting better results than their own trained pain coaches. (I wish they want to learn what I am doing?) I encouraged him to give them all my contact information. He did.
He reports he has been out of pain for a while. When a spasm starts, he stops it right away with the PHD quick pain relief technique. His morphine intake is reduced and he has only taken 3-4 Oxycontin pills in the last month when he used to take more than that daily. I reinforced one of the techniques and we discussed how he will use this moving forward.
This was a wrap-up session for questions and tips. I did take him through a process of visualizing the healing and the nerve growth speeding up through his scar tissues.
People are often amazed at the results of a trained mind with useful Mind Smart Skills. It is so innate that I cannot fully explain it. Each person realizes all this once they experience it.
Great News: Lifespan increases & Brain component comes alive
He had a blood test that measures lifespan based on the medicine a person is taking. Great result!
His lifespan had increased from taking less medicinal toxicity.
AND something I did not know: his pituitary gland had been declared dead by doctors. NOW it is alive and working. Awesome results.
I also gave him specific pointers to speed up the regrowth of nerves through scar tissue where he had numbness. Lots of cutting on his body.
More than a year after working with him, he was in a bad accident. EMS had to cut him out of his truck. The EMTs told him that he should not have been able to walk out of that. He had sat in his car and used the Empowering Whole Relax and the pain elimination techniques. Thus, he was able to walk out fine.
This is so useful and better than all those drugs and their side effects.
Note: I am sure there may be certain situations where the medications are needed. When I work with someone with an illness I have them inform their primary care provider.
So far, all students and clients have successfully used this PHD pain relief Smart Skill.
A pill or mental focus; whichever works.
You carry it with you, in your brain’s software, ready to use it at a moment’s notice, when needed. And the side effects include: self-management and shifting into pain and peace in mind and body quickly on-cue along with a true sense of freedom in life. Plus you will use this for the rest of your life.
The body heals itself in the right conscious environment
Later there was better news.
Within a year after we stopped sessions he was totally off all pain meds and the implant has remained turned off. He saves dollars and is bolstering his sense of well-being in life and his control over his own thoughts.
Seeking medical school, professionals
I write this in all caps: I KNOW THERE ARE MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS INTERESTED IN HELPING PATIENTS BY EMPOWERING THE INNATE ABILITIES OF THE BODY TO HEAL. IT JUST TAKES TRAINING. CONTACT ME!
Truly, as an engineer, I have taken this knowledge and direct experience and made it usable. Let’s empower the patient and bring forth their own innate healing abilities.
Remember that Michael and I did this over the phone.
Michael gave me explicit permission to use his
name in any way that would get the word out. Some of his Facebook posts are
Letter sent to a pain management clinic in South
I mailed a letter to the pain clinic, directly
to his pain doctor and PA. I asked to coordinate my notes with his doctor
visits to produce a report that could be used. I offered to show them how it is
trainable with repeatable results. Give me a white board and marker, I can show
it to anyone.
I heard nothing. You draw your own conclusions.
The rest of this post are Michael’s Facebook posts talking about his use of this PHD pain relief technique.
Do you know someone who can benefit? You?
I enjoy working with a client, a class, when I witness
how they have gained more self-mastery.
Army class experience
There are so many testimonials. I have to share this and will make it short. I had the fortune to train some Fort Hood Army folks in a wellness center a student of mine had opened up. Day one, two of the things they learned were the foundational Empowering Whole Relaxation and the PHD pain relief techniques.
Sunday morning, before the second day of class, I am watching Lionel shifting in his chair and looking around. I asked him what’s going on? He said he has had back pain for years and it was gone. I joked and said: well, stopping looking for it; what a teacher told me in my twenties. Then, I congratulated him. As everyone was sitting down, they commented their pains were also gone. Amazing how many people in the Army carry pain.
That is the first time that happened without doing the technique. It was in the air, it seems…where it worked for the collective of folks who were learning these sets of Smart Skills as they walked into the room. An enlivening energy was definitely present.
A big reason I write this is because developing into someone who can send healing energies is available to anyone. I have observed myself and students having A Progression of Personal Development that seems unbelievable, if it was not reported so often . The link describes familiar inner development by people gaining mastery of their thoughts. The brain has so much more when we learn how to reprogram it specifically to help us be more effective, creative and manage our inner self.
We live in this physical world and our senses continuously confirm that to us anytime we are awake. As we develop and grow on this planet often we will begin to think that what we see, fell, taste, touch and hear is all that there is to life. That is a reason we get locked inside our life box…stuck in the haze of normality.
Many of us sense and believe that there is something more to life. It is unseen, yet somehow, something is there in the unseen. Then we listen to quantum physicists telling us that we, objects, nature, air, everything is quantum energy vibrating at varying frequencies. From this unseen force, visible life emerges. Food for thought.
If you are curious, this is a great place to start – the movie What the Bleep Do We Know. It is an integration of experts talking about how life works in the quantum world with a story being told with the oscar-winning actress Marlee Matlin. It is currently available on YouTube.
How can we know there is actually some power, some intelligence, some energy in the unseen?
Keep reading… I had
scientific verification of it.
One example is electricity. We do not see the current running through wires or waiting at our wall plugs. Yet, with complete certainty, we plug in a device and it receives this unseen force to power the device.
Do you ever doubt
What about this thing people talk about? They heard about an energy healer. What is that? Someone goes to a practitioner who claims to conduct energy. This subject has intrigued me since I met a Canadian healer in a hotel in Balikpapan, Indonesia; the island of Borneo. I was 23 years old.
Meeting my first healer
I had finished breakfast and went to the lobby to wait on the driver to go to work. While reading the International Herald Tribune this woman sat in the chair next to me. I had the strangest sensation. At the time I was still incredibly shy. LOL. My body started vibrating all over while I kept hearing ‘introduce yourself’. That repeated until I did. Turns out she is from Canada and was traveling the Indonesian islands to learn from elders and medicine men. She talked with me about it some and I felt a resonance with her words. Actually I had a medicine man from Eastern Java, Indonesia send herbs to my mom in Houston. It helped her. [future post] Fast forward more than two decades and my own energies started opening up.
That vibration and insistent voice were so wild. It pushed me to do something good for me. That is when I began to learn that the body’s intelligence is incredible. An internal unseen guidance can lead me correctly.
By 2007-8 I had done a lot of personal growth and studied metaphysical topics. Even though I was curious and teaching some, it did not squash my inner electrical engineer’s need for proof. Isn’t that where the saying “I’ll believe it when I see it” comes from. That is so true except if you are looking to manifest a change in life. Then I began to learn “I’ll see it when I believe it”. This is how to manifest change beginning within your own mind.
A part of your
personal progression when you learn mind mastery and some healing concepts,
your healing energy will get activated. Mine was beginning to activate and I
could feel it.
He stops his meds
Around this time we had moved my now ex-partner down from upstate New York. He had been taking a strong anti seizure medicine for 15+ years. We discussed him getting off of that after learning its toxicity. We went to a neurologist in Austin who told him that he needed to have a 24-hour sleep-deprived EEG that had no spikes on it.
For more than a year he had been using the brain neural programming methods from my trainings. He was already stopping migraines. These used to occur multiple times per week. He used the Student Study Skills to move from Dean’s academic probation to graduating with honors. This set of skills for focus, comprehending, and recalling is known to decrease study time, increase playtime while increasing grades. What I saw was him playing more games on the computer than studying once he was using them.
His appointment with the neurologist was Monday morning. I taught a class that weekend and he stayed awake Sunday night. We went to have the EEG done. When I teach neural reprogramming, a basic understanding of brain waves are involved – beta, alpha, theta, delta.
I asked the
technician if I could sit in and watch them live on the computer screen. I used
a chart but never had seen them live.
I sat 8-10 feet from his head where the electrodes were placed. The technician would whisper to me and show me that initially there were beta waves from a waking, eyes open state. Then he got tired and she showed me the alpha waves from when we start to fall asleep. Then the theta waves from a much deeper state of sleep. Next, she pointed out the delta waves from him going into the deepest of sleep. These are the phases we go into while falling asleep. Then in 90-minute cycles, we move amongst the alpha, theta, and delta phases of brain functioning.
Note: When you hear
‘healing’ it is not that a person heals you. No. It is when a person has
learned to conduct the natural healing energies through them into a person.
That year was a period when energies began to activate in my physical body. I had learned multiple techniques for sending healing energy for someone, remote or in person.
At that time, I
began to feel a vibration directly behind the back of my scalp, close to the
top of my head when this energy would turn on. My good friend, a healer I have
learned from, had told me that when I felt that, it was an indication that
someone needs the energy. Send it to the need.
Well, you can guess
what is about to happen 🙂
Verifying that human energy can be detected
Sitting in the EEG
room, I felt that vibration begin. I had the idea that I would relax and drop
my right arm down by my side and imagine it filling up with this healing
energy. I did that. Then I lifted my hands and pushed my palms forward towards
Andrew’s head to send the energy across the room to him. It was an idea that
Immediately, I saw
on the computer screen where all four wave types went to their maximum value
without spiking. Then they quickly dissipated in a smooth fashion back to the
normal waves. I noticed the technician circle that part of the printout.
Wow, I just confirmed that the unseen energies from my palms registered on electrodes 8-10 feet away. This engineer was happy. If the room didn’t feel like a closet, I wanted to do my happy dance.
A few minutes later,
the same vibration signal buzzed the top back of my scalp. I repeated what I
had done before. The four brain wave types again went full maximum without
spiking and modulated down back to normal. And the technician circled them on
the printout again.
Amazing. Again, the energies registered. Ultimate confirmation.
Uh oh, I thought. I
hope that is not misinterpreted as a spike that they do not want to see in
order for him to stop the medication.
So, the next time I
felt that vibration signal, I simply imagined the energy being sent over there
without pushing it, as I did before. Success. The brain waves did not change
An ecstatic engineer
I was in heaven, a
moment of awakening. Energy from a human, me, is real. There was a medical
verification using scientific equipment.
The rest of the
Once the doctor read
the EEG, in another appointment, Andrew was approved to stop taking the
medications immediately. Success!
When people plant bad seeds in your mind
Here is what the doctor said to him as we are leaving: “We know that this tends to come back once your into adulthood. I expect to see you within a year”.
As we walked out I
asked Andrew: Did you hear what he just said? ‘Yes’. Do you believe him? ‘No’.
Good. And that is what happened. He did not need them. His silent seizures
Later, I asked
Andrew what he did while lying on the table hooked up to the EEG electrodes.
When he was not napping he was visualizing the EEG results he wanted without
any spikes. He and I had been visualizing the same thing for a couple of
weeks…and that is what he manifested.
Your body is emitting energy all the time.
When Oprah was doing her talk show, one time she showed a sign right by the door to her office: “You are responsible for the energy you bring”. I kind of got it then but now I understand that energy is the current we are emitting in every situation in our life.
That made me wonder what energy I brought to classes, to clients, to friends, by myself, and other situations.
What do we make of this?
How can we use the
fact that we emit energy?
Do you sense your own energy? Other’s energy?
The energy I
purposely emitted was detected by a scientific instrument.
Based on this
verification, does it make you curious?
Within a year, I was being guided real-time in sessions. What an experience. P.E.A.C.E. Sessions
Folks this stuff
works…and it works in person and remotely. Hmm…
Use the Contact Form and tell me your energy experience or leave a comment or question.
In my quiet within, I have been sensing that it is time that I make this blog more personal to benefit those who are considering a life change or ten . What does it look like and how does it feel to experience change?
Since 2008, I have been blogging about life skills from different approaches, results people have, quotes, videos, and ponderings; some might say meanderings. LOL
of that is available in this blog…with the caveat that I had to restore this
blog and that backup file did not have the pics and links in all posts prior to
2020. As I can, I’ll go through some old posts to restore the links and pics.

As an engineer, I can easily do all the behind the scenes maintenance and make changes. But design!? What? Me? Opportunity: If you are drawn to what I write here and have blog design skills. Contact me. Let’s work something out.
Intent of sharing more personally
I intend to share how I felt during changes so you can relate. Share when I was limited. What were my fears? What I did to break through those limits. How it felt and what came to me when I was expanding in life. How I fell into lulls in life and how I navigated out of them. Hopefully, you will relate so that it empowers you, enlivens you, and inspires you to go for it.
I do this to be transparent in how I have used these multitudes of skills from several systems and their approaches to self-betterment.
The feedback I get
from students and clients, often, is that I am authentic. THAT is my goal at
the core of me. I cannot live my best life and accomplish my purpose while
hiding out. I cannot guide others from a false place. This life is so full of
potential, regardless of age.
What is that nudge
inside that you feel at times to make a change?
I invite comments, questions, and discussions.
“Wisdom comes from experience. experience is often a result of lack of wisdom.”
My come from
I do not like to be the person up on stage for visibility purposes. I have learned how to be comfortable so that I can speak and train others. And, I do stand on the stage built by my tears, revelations, hurts, mistakes, risks, forgiveness-es, learnings, lessons, joys, loves, passions, adventures, manifesting, coming out, accepting me, and accepting the Vision I have received as my To Do in life.
All of that plus what I am still pondering because of a great friend, J.M., who is my muse for viewing, connecting, changing, and working with the quantum energy that is vibrating within us, as us. Some new ideas are floating around in my head on how to direct this for our good.
Let’s get down to it
We can learn theory
all day long but it doesn’t mean a thing until the rubber meets the road; until
we practice it. The very process of experimenting with new skills helps to
develop life skills in a way that works for you.
I tell clients and students to not believe what I say and present. Life is an experiment. Try it out and see what happens in life. Change a thought and watch the result. Modify and repeat. Through your experiences with these ideas, you will develop the beliefs that work for you and where you are going in life. Along the way, you are empowered with new life skills. It is a win-win situation.
Nothing in our life,
externally or internally, changes without us first becoming aware that we can
actually change. Then we begin. This can be simple. And it can feel
insurmountable. It will seem less so once the choice is made to make a change
You are just one new thought away from having what you want and being who you desire to be.
I really like this version by Siedah Garrett who wrote Man in the Mirror for Michael Jackson. She sang it at the Agape International Spiritual Center AgapeLive.com the Sunday after he died. So Beautiful
What is your inspiration? Where do you feel it in your
I am so grateful for
the thing within my spirit that came to this planet to make personal changes;
not just accept what is. Thankfully. I heard a very clear message at 6 years
old during a violent event in the household. I was holding myself, on the floor,
in the corner, door closed, crying. Shaking. Frightened. Alone.
I then heard a voice
say: “Lamar. Don’t worry about this. You are going to learn how to do life
better.” It was a thought that had the volume turned up loud enough inside
me so that I would hear it. Listen. And heed it. Plus, it came with an overwhelming
sense of peace and calm. That was not the energy I had felt in life until that
moment. With these good feelings that swept over me, that goal/directive was
planted within me. That voice has guided me in important moments in life. That
is my inspiration and push to keep going.
We are all living in a Feeling Universe. Feelings with ideas register in our system. Ideas alone stay as untapped potential until an emotion fuels it into becoming.
To create something takes 3 easy steps, 1 of which is NOT YOUR JOB!
Step 1. Craft in words what you desire in life whether it is external or internal as if it is already done. Add an emotion to fuel it. “I am thrilled to have this new job paying me $xx.” “I love living in this welcoming, safe and productive home.”
Step 2. Not your job
Step 3. Maintain a state of joy and gratitude. This is the state of receiving.
To provide credit where it’s due, I learned this from Abraham, the teacher
To grasp this concept and practice it is to direct your own life.
What you place your attention on, the Life Force goes and grows more of that.
Do you focus more on your perceived problems more than you focus on your goals?
Whichever… it’s a choice. This Force does not have an opinion. It simply amplifies.
Think of a magnifying glass amplifying the natural sun’s light.
Thus it is important you get clear on what you choose in life.
Step 1. Write out what you want to manifest in a short statement that excites you when you read it. Then craft it to be as if it’s already done.
And finally, add fuel to power it. This is what e-motions do. Your e-motions are energies in motion coursing throughout you. Your thoughts are dry and cannot manifest without fuel.
What good feeling emotion will you have when this is on your life? That’s the e-motion to include in your statement.
Step 2. NOT YOUR JOB
Most people learn to look at the goal and logically figure out how to go about getting it. That works using your logical brain functioning…
…and what about your intuitive brain functioning?
Your logic is based only on what you have already learned in this life; it is incapable of having a new thought. ONLY your intuitive mind receives new thoughts and ideas. Thus using your logic to obtain a goal guarantees you will do it the same way as you always have. And if you have never manifested this goal then your logic doesn’t know how. This is when most people give up by saying ‘I can’t do that. I can’t have that.’ Thus another dream dies and we lose that part of us.
But consider this. Your intuition knows other ways to achieve it. How great would it be to simply focus on your statement throughout the day and allow your intuition to guide you to it.
Yes, it sounds strange. As an engineer I’ve settled it in my mind by realizing we have a Whole Brain that consists of the left hemisphere doing the logical functions WITH the right hemisphere connecting us to our potential in life.
What I’m saying is: Do not figure it out. Do not try to figure out how to achieve it.
Here is what I do. Wonder what opportunity is going to pop up or what new idea that will pop into my mind that I can follow.
Step 3. Think about this. What goal have you achieved when you’re feeling dejected and incapable? Hardly any, right?
So giving gratitude for what you have and enjoy builds good feelings. This leads to feeling joy.
This is the state of receiving when using this manner of manifestation.
Example: I was teaching part 1 of my brain neural programming class to a group of hypnotists outside Boerne, Texas. We got to this manifestation part and how they could use their intuition which I had just trained their brain to use more often and on call. I was saying you could get a new car by going to the bank, getting preapproved and finding the car.
Or, I know a healer friend that when he needs a new car someone will buy themself a new car and give this man their old car.
Or people win a car.
Or… there are an infinite number of ways to achieve what you desire once you start to use your intuition.
I went to lunch with this lady hypnotist from class in her new Lexus SUV; nice car. She told me how she got this car. She had been eyeing a Lexus SUV but did not have enough down payment $$ to get the monthly payment affordable. She went to lunch regularly with a group of her girlfriends and had been telling them about her desire to have this vehicle. After one lunch one of the ladies walked out with her and said that she and her husband just had a bank CD payout. She wanted to give her what she needed for the down payment. My student was shocked… and accepted the offer. Thus she got the car she had been focusing upon.
That’s an unexpected way she manifested her Lexus SUV.
The fun part about manifesting using your intuition is the almost miraculous stories you get to tell your friends.
And this was not a miracle. This is a way you can use your intuition to manifest.
The first few times be sure to NOT choose something that you’ve struggled to manifest for a long time. Set yourself up for success. Use this method a few times THEN go for the gusto.
One last thing, keep focusing on it and look for opportunities until it happens. The only way it won’t happen is if you give up.
