Click ‘Thought Experiments’ above on the banner. More to come.
At this time of year, I am reviewing things in life so that 2021 is better.
What is working in life? What is not? What can I adjust? What is important to me to do? What is my focus for 2021? Is there a theme that comes?
What has 2020 meant? Losses and effects from Covid-19? Stress level? What do I need to learn from this year? What was good?
Take some time to contemplate things like that, listening for ideas and answers. Journal it or jot some things down.
Then, come back to this…
Choose something you do not like or want in life. Some lack, missing item, person, change wanted, adjust inner thoughts or something that needs a little adjustment.
Keep these three requirements in mind:
- You cannot control others. This is about you.
Now, I have told this to the thousands of students who have taken my brain neural programming skills and spiritual laws classes…And they don’t listen LOL Neither did I when I first began.
- Do not pick the hardest item you have not resolved in years or decades.
- Choose something that does not have a heavy weight or attachment to it. Pick a new adventure you want or something light and fun. These tend to manifest quicker.
Why start with something light to change?
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 life.
If you had the option to change this negative item, would you?
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 line.
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.
Published in Austin All Natural magazine
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
All 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.
All the info is still here. Search your curiosities about self-improvement. At the bottom of each page, Click a topic in the interest cloud or select a category.
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.”Terry Pratchett
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
A beautiful reminder that change begins within each of us: Michael Jackson – Man In The Mirror (Official Video)
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 body?
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.Lamar
What inspires you to consider a change?
Let’s get real about change… series
First post in series
In-Joy, Experience, and Love,
This is the first post in the ‘Let’s get real about change’ theme.
A memorable (re)defining moment* began in the last semester of college. It was a great time for jobs and it was fun to have so many options. I used my electrical engineering degree to take the job with a French company that said I would be anywhere in the world except North America. Not knowing what country I would end up in kind of excited me. After discussion with others, I happily said ‘yes’ to the job with Schlumberger International. Luckily, they placed me in the Far East.
For me, I was taking the proverbial leap off a familiar cliff and learning that I could fly. I could now be the adventurous person my dreams had shown me…and my Sagittarius horoscope says I am. LOL
I was standing on the edge of a precipice and strongly desired changes were at my fingertips. My imagination saw it while looking in the abyss full of potential. I reassured myself: I earned this opportunity with my degree. Then, the realization that for much of my life I had felt on that edge desiring change but held back. That old familiar feeling of being suppressed was a strong energy that pulled me to stay where I was. Like a gravitational pull.
This is how the ego works to prevent us from changing. My ego knew how to balance my set of my pains, limitations, dreams, thoughts, failures, successes, etc. It would have to rebalance itself and fights to do so. This is why we get an idea, then suddenly we hear thoughts and feel feelings that keep us in check. It is a tricky aspect of our consciousness.
Commit to change while being mindful of how the ego is going to attempt to stop you. Everytime a self-limiting thought or feeling pops up, re-choose your change. Do it again. Then again. Keep re-focusing. At some point the ego gets it. This is going to happen.
You have proven to yourself that this is important. You have begun the process of taming your ego. It has its uses but change is not one of them. Remain focused because the only way it will not happen is if you give up or let it go.
External change causes emotional change…
All changes you make in life involve changes in some emotion(s). Of course, being from an alcoholic family and growing up in a small town with its restrictive expectations, I could not show these emotions. They leaked out with my best friend or my mom, at times. It does not mean my emotions were not happening. I was just well trained in not showing it or discussing it. Macho. Machismo since that is all I learned from male role models. A lesson later unlearned.
Internally I had a mix of emotions and thoughts. Fear and excitement of adventure, new wonders, grief of leaving, nerves wondering what country, will I know enough, will I enjoy it, is this a bad or good decision plus the gravitational pull to stay in the familiar box of life. Oh, how much I wanted to take this job.
My biggest heartfelt concern was that my mom had been in a wheelchair for 2+ years and was divorced living in an old farmhouse in the middle of 126 acres in southeast Texas; population 150. I felt guilty thinking only of my dreams. Since a doctor had told me 3 years prior “your mom is going to die”, I was especially feeling conflicted; she was 1 in 20 women who got well from the new treatment but ended up in a wheelchair.
She continuously reassured me and told me I had to take it. She had help and would be alright.
If it were not for mom I would be working with my ‘broken’ dad in his Interstate 10 gas stations and wrecker service. He did not want me to go to college. Leaving to go to campus for the first time, he told me that he did not want me to go. I said I was going. He abruptly stopped paying for it the day I transferred from Lamar University in Beaumont to Texas A&M University in College Station. My mom sacrificed for my tuition. Then I got a few part-time jobs.
She had never mentioned my education without saying it does not end until I have my Bachelor of Science degree. She sacrificed in many ways for me to get my degree. She was also the source for inspiration at times; much needed. She gave me two books when I was in high school that spurred my thoughts that I could live a better life. Wayne Dyer’s The Sky’s the Limit and Dr. Maxwell Schultz’s Psycho Cybernetics. Books that altered the way I interacted with my thoughts and had me reconsider my place in life.
Whether or not to take this international job was clear within me. It felt like my soul was screaming at me YES while pushing me to just do it. All my engineering friends thought I was crazy. It felt like I could not ‘not’ take this job.
To me, that has become a Life Sign from my soul that I have to follow now. We always have free will to choose and sometimes the choice that suits us is so obvious that it feels like we do not have a choice.
Have you ever been there? Felt that?
To me, that is when my soul is finding the mothership, the Presence that knows my best life. Following that makes life easier. I am to follow the Lead and in its wakes, the path is clearer.
I had spent my youth since fourth grade on our farmland in tiny village, Texas. I chased cows, ran from snakes, rode horses for a while, shot the 22 rifle to scare the varments from eating our melons in the garden, shot tin cans off fence posts, played with dogs and cats, drove my go-cart across the pastures (once hitting a red ant bed. Their bites hurt). My best friend and I shot bottle rockets at each other. One of us in the barn. The other away on the shell road. I’m glad we did not burn down the old barn that leaned to its left a bit too much 🙂 Eddie and I would sit at the edge of the dynamite hole (a pond created by great uncles with a case of dynamite). We talked and dreamed like kids do.
My parents commuted to Houston for work. So, I was entertained by nature and sometimes a friend from miles away would be over. I remember watching every plane that flew over (that wasn’t a crop duster) and dreamed of being on them; working and living. I had only been out of Texas twice; Ruidoso, New Mexico and Monterey, Mexico. That last one was a Spanish class field trip on an un-air-conditioned school bus in the hot summer. We bounced all the way there and back 😉
I accepted that job offer with Schlumberger International.
I believe that what overcame the fears and old gravitational pull was the energy from youthful exuberance where mountains are surmountable + the focus on the prize + the dreams as a child of flying globally + emotional support. Note: As we get older there are ways to harness this sort of energy and focus. Too much to put in this post.
I had earned this and that felt great. And, then, this daydreaming of flying on planes from childhood was coming true. I did not know that’s how life works.
Dream it to achieve it.
On my first day of employment, my best friend since fourth grade, Eddie, picked me up to take me to the Houston airport. I could not stop crying leaving home, and my mom, Tuffy my dog, and what I knew. Then we talked on the drive and I cried a little more when I got out of Eddie’s car at the Houston airport. Whew, how life changed showing me how much I loved them through my tears.
I sat on the plane headed for Singapore via Los Angeles. My god. Singapore. As soon as I felt the power around me revving to take off I was gloriously filled with excitement, anticipation and appreciation. The huge smile on my face was matched by the huge smile in my heart. That was when I began to feel free. I was going 20+ hours on a plane to a foreign land. Awesome! Plus I am really happy that my stomach was okay flying. My only childhood plane ride was across Texas. The stewardess got mad at me and my mom for me not using the barf bag.
Arriving in Singapore
We, the new crop of electrical engineers and physicists, trained in Singapore for a while. I found it so incredibly exhilarating that all these guys came from different countries. Wow. Befriending those from Nigeria, Japan, Switzerland, England, France, Australia, others. That sort of thing always opened me up in some new way. In training, we learned how to put out fires and how to drive in bad road conditions. I remember being told: If you do not wear your seat belt while with the company, you will be fired. So, at age 23 I began that safety habit.
Walking with these new friends was so much fun. Singapore has a reputation of being extremely clean. It is. They still have a law banning chewing gum so it does not end up on the sidewalk.
Now, onto my first trip to Indonesia
I flew to my first assignment in Indonesia arriving at the Balikpapan airport. Interesting pilot maneuver of dropping straight down from a mountain into the airport in the valley. It was a BIG roller coaster drop flying into that city. Balikpapan is the capitol of the state of Kalimantan.
Customs? is in that shack? Hmm. This is going to be interesting
Since I had been at Texas A&M and liked to dance, I had learned country and western dancing, aka kicker dancing. That was the big warehouse dance place we called the Hall of Shame. At Lamar University, we disco danced. Yep, that dates me.
I arrive at this customs building that was a two-room shack, raised up on blocks. Where there should be windows and doors, there were none. I am 6′ 4″ wearing my cowboy hat, western boots and a belt with my name on the back. Considering the average height there, I was very tall in this outfit. I do not think I wore that outfit again. I replaced cowboy boots with hard work boots. I replaced my cowboy hat with a work hard hat.
With this, I got nervous but it was okay. This is their way of doing customs. I was in this for the adventure and new experiences. It’s full-on now, dude.
Fortunately, on the plane an experienced expatriate had me re-fill in my customs form. He said just write ‘personal items’ and ‘no value’. Otherwise, they will take some money or some items or both if I declared a value. Hmm. I now know I have entered a strange land. Such excitement in me.
Seeing the first military dressed customs officer was interesting and puzzling. He looked at my customs form and at my cowboy hat. He opened my suitcases and then motioned for me to give him my cowboy hat. I did not know better, so multiple times I said ‘no’ and shook my head ‘no’. I was able to walk away wearing it.
Walking out of there with my belongings, a lot of children wanted to help. I tried to quickly calculate the dollar to the rupiah exchange rate. I think I gave a huge tip because I did not know how many rupiahs to give. This was my first experience of local children in a third world country. It was a shock to see the conditions and their almost lusting for money or food. They had to. My heart felt it.
I was driven to the Western hotel where expats stayed; western, as in developed countries. I wanted to walk so another expat and I explored some. Dirt streets. Vans with loudspeakers driving the streets. A language that was so foreign. Yippee!
This place to eat was interesting, so to speak. Doors open. Some flies. We sat down at one of the picnic bench tables. Hold on… this is a new experience: The waiter went to the window display of food. He picked up that room temperature food and sat it on our table. Hmm. We talked some then ate it. We figured if this is what they do, then why not. I am fortunate my stomach agreed it was okay. We were charged by the estimated amount of food we ate. Though, from then on I ate at the restaurant in the motel.
Expatriates camp in the jungles
The next morning I got into a helicopter for an exciting 45-minute ride into the jungle. The pilot flew in the Vietnam war. He asked us if it was okay for a more exciting flight. Of course, yes. He dropped down quickly to fly above the mostly un-driveable road between the forest of trees. Yep, it was exciting. My first helicopter ride. My second foreign country. The beauty. The third world-ness. The friendliness of the locals. All of it was fulfilling my long held need to see other lands.
We landed in a camp for working expatriates near the Mahakam River Delta on this island of Borneo. Talk about new experiences.
I learned that it is valuable (sometimes, a must) to stretch myself, thus my life. I learned I could thoroughly enjoy life through new experiences. I could manage some fears that came up. I was enough to do the job well. I met a multitude of people from other countries, new cultures, new ideas. Plus the beauty of eye and heart pleasing vistas that no words can describe. Flying… Mind and Heart are expanding.
What did you do in early adulthood that stretched you?
Was it fearful? Then exciting? Or something else?
How is an inkling of a dream nudging you these days?
Is there a way to nourish it?
You do not have to jump in recklessly. Set it as a goal and get curious about what this means to you. The energy of curiosity will bring new ideas to you from your intuition, hearing it from someone, noticing a news article or whatever way it can reach you.
*(re)define is from the book: Your (re)Defining Moments: Becoming Who You Were Born to Be Author Dennis Merritt Jones; his Amazon page
I am finishing up a zoom class about this book. It has been a new perspective on perceiving, processing and propelling personal growth.
Keep it simple.
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.
Happy Manifesting, you awesome creative soul 🙂
Your Imagination is Your Way Out of a Limited Life Box
Everyone goes through phases where something in life is too rote or not working anymore or it is just time for that change. The more a person evolves in this lifetime, the more a person has to grow out of limiting life boxes.
The challenge is that people tend to linger on what is not working. Neuroscientists say that the brain is designed to learn a habit and stick with it. It is in our brain’s wiring, i.e. neural programming. One loud NO registers immediately and the brain changes. It takes several strong YES’s to register in the brain.
The great news is that consciousness supersedes habitual programming. It just takes knowing how.
Proper use of consciousness leads us out of stuck-ness
Every single thing we have done in life involves imagining it first. It is such an automatic process that we may not be aware of it. And it is our saving grace in life. The imagination creates the life framework to change and, done at the right brain frequency, reprograms the heart and brain neurons so that we can accomplish a desired change in life.
So, have your pity party 🙂 It is a part of the process…and oh my, I have had mine for way too long. At some point we are recreating the same thing over and over. When we only use our logical mind it is so focused on the past that it is recreating it for the future, over and over. Life becomes a continuous groundhog day, as in the movie.
Until we declare STOP the madness!
Make the shift:
- Pause your normal thoughts.
- Focus on deep breathing for a few moments. Breathe in through your nose being mindful of the air flow coming in. Hold it to the count of three. Exhale through the mouth noticing the flow of air coming up from your lungs, out your mouth. Do this a few times.
- The more you focus on this flow of air, the more you remove the energy from those incessant thoughts and shift into your inner center where all real power comes forth.
- That begins the shift.
- Focus your attention onto what you desire, as if you have it, and let the energy that was fueling the old thoughts bring life to what you desire.
- This shifts you onto your new chosen path.
Rinse and repeat. Do this process daily or even multiple times each day. This tells yourself that ‘I am making this change’. And you are telling Life, the Universe, what you desire instead. Stick with it to observe new ideas, opportunities and more come to you.
I hope this helps begin your process of change. Have patience and be willing to do something new to see the results you have in life.

“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?
We are so much more powerful than we ever give ourselves credit for. There is a way to use our brain, as it is designed, to make changes within ourselves and in our experiences of life.
Cognitive therapists talk about how our brain is designed to use both cognitive and intuitive functioning. The approaches I have learned activate the mostly unknown truth that we can also use our intuitive functioning just as easily as we use our logic. It provides immeasurable benefits.
It just takes your willingness and the right training.
I first learned how to use Left/Right Brain Integration Skills at age 23. It has empowered me in ways that my students now experience; below. The fantastic news is that once we use these skills our life opens up and we can continue to expand out of any small life box in which we find ourselves.
Here is a progression of personal development reported to me by a student.
- My dreams for my future have expanded.
- I am more grounded now
- Doesn’t get pulled off center as easily as before
- Manage my emotions better
- Has set better boundaries with others
- Picks up on other people’s feelings, sometimes thoughts
- Energy does not get drained by others
- Someone close to me is changing in good ways
Some from other students:
- After the first class, my husband told me I was much calmer and more relaxed. I used to fidget, always be busy, and talk a lot.
- I have decreased my worrying and fears
- Before I send a business email, I close my eyes and imagine the reception I want. It works. Thank you.
- Had a bad accident. Immediately I used the instant relaxation technique. Once they cut me out of my truck, I was able to step out and walk normally. EMT was surprised I was not hurting.
- I have started having new thoughts from intuition popping in
- I have noticed more creative ideas come in for work and personal
- Energy does not get drained by others
- Am weeding out thoughts that don’t belong to me and replacing them with ‘who I want to be’ thoughts.
- I am more in touch with what I am thinking and feeling when I am interacting in life
From some who took an advanced class that includes healing. Working in partners one person, the medical intuitive, is told the name, age, gender, and location of someone with an illness. He or she scans the person and detects medical problems. Then they use healing energies to help that person heal.
- I detected a family member’s medical condition and told her to go to the doctor. It was confirmed and now she is getting treatment.
- When scanning the person, I actually saw her face and hair color. Describing it to the person who knows, it was confirmed.
- I detected that someone had no use of their legs
- I shrunk metastasized tumors from all over my body. It was confirmed at Houston’s MD Anderson hospital. In a session with Lamar my pain level was over a 10. He guided me to lower it to 4. Then I used the technique to lower it and manage it
- I was able to have skin tags shrink and go away
- I detected a deep hip injury and the underlying emotion. Imagining I was rubbing his hip bone and placing a healing salve on it, his pain and limp went away quickly
From me, blog owner, Lamar: I used healing energies for a woman in person. From a hospital stay she contracted MRSA in her bladder. Three rounds of antibiotics did not help. I did this imagining my hands are holding her bladder and spreading a healing salve. During it she started saying ‘Oh. Oh. Oh…’ Afterwards she told me she felt my hands holding her bladder. The next day in a pre-scheduled doctor visit, they tested her and the infection was gone.
From my own experience and reports from others, these are natural progressions which occur for everyone who learns and uses it.
These skills can be learned in class and in private sessions. The private sessions allow you to learn the ones that apply to your immediate life needs.

Invest in yourself and bettering your life.

Awareness Mindfulness Meditation Masterfulness
Suggested exercise to develop more dominion over life.
Gain awareness of how your thoughts drive your actions, behavior and interactions.
Start noticing the thoughts you have as you take actions and interact with others.
Thoughts create reality
Conscious + Unconscious thoughts lead to your experience of reality. Generally, a person’s conscious thoughts are up to 10% and unconscious thoughts up to 90%. Yikes! Thus it is good to gain awareness of those unconscious thoughts. This exercise helps.
Having the awareness of the thoughts that drive you activates your innate ability to change.
Schedule a reminder or put a rubber band on your wrist to remind you to do this throughout your day.

Invest in yourself and bettering your life. It pays lifelong dividends
We have an incredible amount of power within us. This chapter of my life is to do my part to empower humanity. Empowered people live healthier, happier and fulfilling lives becoming who they choose to become in life.
You are designed for success & You live in a proactively supportive universe.
Actually you are designed to receive a new idea in your creative mind, process it within all the resources within you and output it into your life. Incredible! And true…
I am beginning to video topics and post them to YouTube along with some talks I’ve given.
I could use your help to reach 100 subscribers. Then I can claim an easy to remember URL.
Inner alignment with brain integration skills empower us to achieve with ease and synchronicity, eventually rooting out the extreme struggle and difficulties… Once you are on the right path.
Embed goals within your inner being to make for achieving your goal become a powerful process from within. From within you is where all your true power for long lasting change emanates.
Once comlete, your life will begin to move in that direction. And you will find it unfolds in your awareness, in new ideas, in things to release and things to embrace.. You will begin to have synchronous events and opportunities that show you the way forward.
First, identify the goal’s phrasing using your body’s feedback mechanisms clarifying the precise wording to make it perfect for you. Usually the right goal is a balance of challenging yet very doable. Select a goal either slightly beyond where you are or greatly beyond your current life experiences. You could dare to choose the one that brings major leaps forward in life.
This becomes your Desired Result in life. Once this is clear, the integration process begins.
You will be guided in a series of movements while you say your Desired Result either aloud or silently. This integrates and syncs your left and right brain. And each phase embeds it deeper into your Visual, Auditory and Kinesthetic layers of who you are, referred to as your unseen bodies.
Powerful energy is unleashed.
You will leave with the written goal, a sense of accomplishment and instructions to back it up. I will continue to support you if you need a brief phone call or email.
I did this earlier this year for two major desired results of mine and all kinds of changes are happening in my life. UPDATE: Life has changed dramatically as I align to these.
Are you ready? Is it time yet to rise above your own resistance to what you want in life?
What is it costing you to suppress your true desires for the life you came here to live?
Is it time to unleash your dreams and the powerful self that has been dormant within?
Call me. Let’s schedule this life change. This can be done via Skype.

…and Increase Self-Esteem
Achieving Greatly through Mind Integration
Welcome to a new way to do life.
A Syntheses of 3 Uniquely Powerful Approaches to Empowerment
Most people do their lives using the logical mind. This operates often through stress, struggle, will power, etc. When you begin to use the other half of your brain’s design you begin to have life operate more with ease, focus and synchronicities in life. The more you use it the more your mind develops to be able to operate in different and very beneficial ways.
Imagine having the following sort of skill set for you to do life in a more focused way with greater ease, choice and direction, where you achieve what you focus upon with results coming to you sometimes in surprisingly effortless ways.
Introducing the Wisdom Method
Stress Management, Relax Mind, Body and Energy… on Cue
You have news that stresses you out and would normally divert your attention for days with your thoughts spinning over and over. But in this case you have a way to release the stress, choose your thoughts and directly reverse that negative tailspin.
Some study results of effectiveness of these Precision Inner Thinking Skills
World Health Organization: at least 90% of all illness is from stress
“The ability to enter levels of deep relaxation is critical to the reduction of potentially damaging physical tension and psychological stress.”
~ Correlates of Attention in Humans, Drs. Frederick J. Bremner, V. Benignus, and F. Moritz from Trinity University, San Antonio, Texas
Don’t carry around a bad start to the day. Shift it to be uplifting.
You wake up in the morning feeling completely out of sorts and down. You don’t want to do anything but it’s a full day you have to do. Imagine a simple thought process you do that shifts all those out-of-sorts feelings into becoming how you choose you want to feel. Shift your down and out of sync feelings into joy, happy and gratitude. The day will go so much better from that platform.
Be more effective
You look at your to-do list and feel this overwhelm and fear you cannot get everything done. Imagine a simple thought process to shift yourself into being effective at handling it all, one by one. You align your inner thoughts and sensations to the alignment of what you are about to do. Then things flow with effectiveness and ease.
Claiming Your Good in a seeming negative occurrence in life
Declare a life event to be Good so that it leads to something better. Gain the skills and awareness of how to do this. We have to do things differently if we want life to be different.
Headache Relief and Pain Management
Suddenly, you have a headache. Find somewhere to sit and close your eyes for just a few minutes. Do this focused thought process to eliminate it by the time you open your eyes again. You are in charge.
Introducing Sensualization Model for bettering life
Sensualize Your Life into Being
Advanced Visualization – Presenting a much needed upgrade to visualization, what I coined as Sensualization. This is an expansive approach working with the quantum laws of life to cause and direct your life. Sensualizing your life is using all of your senses and your heart energy laser focused on the same desires in life.
Your inner senses are how you steer your life. And you have equivalent inner senses to each of your physical senses. Sensualization is used to achieve a particular result in life; internal and external. This one-of-a-kind process of using these inner senses to reprogram your brain and heart’s neurons, to line up the path ahead, to direct your inner thoughts, feelings, energies, behaviors to your life’s desires.
Performance/Task Improvement through Precision Inner Thinking
Studies show that precision mental focus improves any performance in life, sports, job task or any area. Learn how to do this. Coaching helps. And this will teach you how to do a lot of it on your own.
Mind’s Eye for Change Manifestation Method
An innovative technique bringing all you learned in class in to a laser focus of your mind, heart and energy towards what you desire in life. Sensualizing your life reprograms the brain and heart, leverages the creative quantum forces that cause life and sends out a clear and concise order to Life in way that Life rises up to meet you supporting you in achieving what you desire in life as you become the person you desire to be in life.
Introducing Whole Mind Results Achievement Model for Goals
All goal setting techniques I learned in business are designed to work with the logical mind’s modus operandi. There’s a different thought and feeling process to achieve your goals that utilizes the advantages of your intuitive mind. Synthesize the benefits of the logical and intuitive minds results in a way to energize your desired results that helps them come easier and sometimes quicker while causing Life to bring you opportunities and open doors.
Additional skills learned include Making Wise Decisions, Developing more Holistic Projects and Goals, Energize yourself, Shift yourself…
Learn some of the Quantum Laws of Life, meaning ways to focus your thoughts that works with the awareness of how to leverage and focus those creative quantum forces for your desired results.
Improve life, Increase self-esteem and boost your personal power
Using these methods develops a greater sense to be able to handle life, have new ideas and access to your incredible personal power. Studies show: 83% increased creativity and intuition, out of 1000 people 49% report improved health, increased self-image, compassion and cheerfulness.
Nothing is as life-affirming and exhilarating as discovering what your personal power feels like coursing through you, and having a sense that Life supports you and your success. Invest in yourself that will bring increasing dividends in making the rest of your life the best of your life.
