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.

In-Joy your Journey,

Lamar

To Michael Jackson… a Bright Bright Star Amongst Us

I scheduled today as a day off for me. With my increased busy-ness teaching on weekends I needed a day of rejuvenation. Of course, my slow day is writing some blog posts, doing some announcements and a few other things like writing a talk I’m giving in San Antonio this Sunday.

But today is set aside to cleanse my body and to honor Michael Jackson.

I am doing one of Dr. Joseph Huerta’s One-Day Detox Teas to cleanse my liver and get my body alkaline again. And I am watching the memorial service for Michael Jackson. Of course, there are tears involved when I’m cleansing and remembering someone who had a huge impact on my life… from a distance, yet seemingly from within.

We are one year different in age and I remember One Bad Apple; I always had to hear that song on the radio when I was 10/11. Then fast forward to me living overseas when his Thriller album and music video came out. I actually bought that black jacket with inlaid red that he wore in that video. I wore it proudly; why did I give that away? I danced to all of his songs in various cities in the US, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, Paris, London, Amsterdam, Brussels, Austria and other places.

Then when he and the other star singers sang We are the World with all the heart possible for all the world to be as one… Another song I requested be played over and over from Houston radio stations… and shed tears many times through it.

And I say ‘then, again’ as he was always topping himself as a creative genius and a bright star for the world… but when he sang Man in the Mirror. Oh my God. I was in the process of doing some deep deep soulful searching with a master teacher at that time… and this song was the lyrics of personal growth, personal responsibility and personal empowerment… leading to world enrichment.

How can such a bright star be taken from us so soon?

Did it shine too brightly and burn itself out? Is that even possible? I don’t think so. It’s Divine Timing.

He was a powerful spiritual being on this planet singing the way for all peoples to be as a family to each other. And we see how well the world responded to this challenging concept; challenging to our fears, that is.

He was a bright star, is a bright star and will always be a bright star through his legacy of creative genius, his songs with lyrics of inspiration and his willingness to be as he was created to be: A loving, caring, shining bright star.

Bless you. You are loved!

I want to say ‘I love you’ to him even though I didn’t personally know him. Then I remember what Frank Natale used to say. When you tell someone that you love them you are actually saying that you love who you are when you are with them.

So, I say to Michael Jackson:
I love you for showing me how to love myself through your artistry and your essence.
Bless You. Be at Peace.

The Empower Austin Project

Launch of The Empower Austin Project

I feel like I had a decently successful launch of The Empower Austin Project. I held 3 classes in three different public libraries in town. Both classes on Saturday in south and north Austin were about delivering study and test-taking skills along with energizing goals. Monday’s class at the Austin History Center focused on developing good decision-making skills and energizing goals. What a beautiful building that is.

There’s already been some results. One person said that for the first time her back pain went completely away… until she had a doubtful thought then it came back. She now has a tool to continue finding moments of painlessness. Another person had an ear become unstopped for the first time in days. It stopped back up a few hours later.

When I started planning to do two-hour classes mainly focused on experience I wondered how effective it would be at providing the environment for someone to have a positive and affirming experience of themselves. It seems like there’s some good results. AND it just proves the fact that each of us has an incredible power that lies dormant within just waiting for us to access it. By simply having three direct training experiences within two hours people experienced unleashing their potential. That tells me how easy it is for us to find our power.

I have such humility. I give reverence to Jose Silva, the man with the genius of passion driving him to create a complete educational system that specifically educates people with the tools to actually live life using more of their mind’s potential utilizing both hemispheres. Maybe we are approaching breaking the ten-percent estimation of how much potential humans generally use. Why wouldn’t anyone not want to be somewhat better than they are now; better as in effective, enriched, fulfilled.

Give your Mind clear and precise directions and it says ‘yes, master’. Well, maybe it just does what you command it to do. As an engineer I have done different computer programming along the way. This is how it appears to that happy engineer aspect.

Our Minds are biological and intelligent computers. The Mind always follows our instruction. We deliver our instructions to our Minds using visualization and imagination at a relaxed state of mind. That is The Key to unleashing your potential. The trick is to practice, hone and develop the use of visualization and imagination. That is what the Silva Method does. It becomes more expansive as the classes go along but in the beginning it is all about directing your own Mind. That then directs your life as you desire it to go.

If you are new to this concept then do this. Even if you are not new, do it and see if it works for you…

Find a relaxing place to sit, preferably not lie down.
If you find a sound helps you relax without distracting you then put some on.
Close your eyes.
Take a few deep breaths in, hold it for a second then exhale.
 Pay attention to the sensations of the air passing through as you breath.
Start counting down from 50 to 1 and every few numbers think to yourself that you’re going deeper.
Stay alert yet very relaxed simultaneously. This is relaxed focus.
Visualize out in space, in front of your eyes, an outcome you want in life. See yourself in the scene as if it is happening right now. Feel the feelings that go along with having this.

You can do this for a just a few minutes a day and you will begin to notice some changes.

Here’s an example. A friend’s daughter wanted to make more tips at her night job as a waitress on a weeknight. She said that normally she gets about $20 tips on a weeknight and she wanted to make $40. I told her to go find a place to relax and daydream. See herself actually receiving it and to feel it happening now. She did this for just a few minutes before work. She called me after her shift and she got $50. That probably took 3 minutes or so. I know in high school I would have loved to all of the sudden have another $30. That’s motivation, isn’t it?

Please report any outcomes.
