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.
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
A Sound Cocoon for Deep Relaxation & Meditation with Singing Quartz Crystal Bowls

To the question at hand… Bending the matrix of reality
Yes, you can bend reality and you are doing this yet are simply unaware that your thoughts cause the results in life.
Thus my favorite topic… How do we tap into our inner potential to alter life?
I first learned precise thinking and visualization to cause a change within me or externally in life, in Malaysia as a young engineer living and working in Indonesia. These skills directly empowered me to improve my job performance significantly. And management started noticing my achievements and performance under those stressful and sometimes dangerous situations.
It truly is nice to be able to choose your desired behavior, task performance or pain release through lining up your thoughts in a precise manner leading to achieving with greater ease, less struggle.
When we make choices about what we want in life and practice living them within our own trained imagination we are literally programming our brain neurons to be able to recognize and act upon ‘the goal’ when opportunities start coming to us. It also sends out energy from your body’s energetic system to move the matrix of reality creating a path leading towards the desired result.
This may sound fanciful or too science fiction and it happens to be true.
As an affirmed geek I just luv this stuff. And it is practical, repeatable, follows laws and principle of the unseen forces that cause life, and leads us to becoming who we want to become.and to achieving what we are impelled to achieve.
Procedure to bend reality to be a path to achieve your results:
Select a relaxed atmosphere inside or outside
Find that ‘just right’ position to sit and get relaxed
Close your eyes
Place you attention on the airflow going in and out of your nostrils and mouth as you breathe in through your mouth
Hold it for a few seconds at the top then exhale deeply
Continue breathing in and out as your body and mind relax
Tell unwanted thoughts to float on like a cloud in the sky
Create in your imagination, using your senses, of having the result you are choosing to create in your life
Be sure to generate the emotions of having it. This fuels it
Spend a few minutes in the morning, midday and evening doing this.
Watch what life starts bringing you as new ideas and opportunities.
Click on Snoopy to the right or here to review my upcoming class that teaches these skills. Achieving Greatly, April 29-30 in Austin, Texas.
This is a one-of-a-kind class that synthesizes 3 independently effective methods to bring forth that inner power you hear about but don’t understand until you experience it.
“When I find myself in times of trouble Mother Mary comes to me Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.”
Let It Be is your soul’s portal beyond the woes of yesteryears and the fears of future years. It is your place of peace, of solace, of causation and of being in and receiving unconditional love and guidance.There’s no defense to push against. There’s no judgment to condemn. There’s no stance except one of peace and acceptance knowing you have the support of life to handle anything and everything in life.
“And when the broken hearted people
Living in the world agree,
There will be an answer, let it be.”
From there, that place of acceptance and peace, then find an answer… Let IT Be.
“And when the night is cloudy, There is still a light that shines on me, Shine on until tomorrow, let it be.”
In this Let It Be state of being there is an inner Light that shines the way. Allow it.
How to Practice
Set this Inner Goal
Shift your inner self into a neutral place where you accept it, drop the judgments, the telling it to change, the critical eye, the condemnation, lack of acceptance whatever it is you think will change by pushing against it. Really. Has it ever worked? And lasted?
To change something from within we must accept it as it is, first.
Let It Be.
Some will discover a great secret to self improvement once they let go of that control thing and shift to ‘Let It Be’ mode. Just do it for one little thing in life. Experiment. Yes, It can be ‘trying’ to change this; it was challenging for me, a previous uber super Type A.
This ‘Let It Be’ state of being is an inner place where we can learn to direct our thoughts, feelings, emotions, energies, and assist our own healing process. I am a living testimony having begun learning in my early twenties while living and working in Indonesia and it continues to amaze me as to how much of our inner resources we can utilize to steer our life as we desire it to be.
If this is new to you, then hang in there with me… I’m an engineer and this all makes more sense as you learn, even from a science-based approach.
When something happens or someone says something that you would normally react to, make a simple choice to handle it differently.
BE in charge of Yourself
Pause Life. Set an intent to be in charge of yourself.
Move the stressful energies
Take a deep breath in. Hold it for a moment.
Then release it imagining and feeling some of the stress-filled energy leaving you while exhaling your breath.
Allow yourself to relax in mind, body and heart.
Repeat a few more times.
Be Mindful of your Thoughts and Heart Space
Turn a portion of your mental/heart attention within and observe your thoughts, what you are saying to yourself, what you are hearing others say to you in your head, notice if this is a pattern, sense the tone.
Expand into another Dimension to Life
We use our brain to access logical thoughts (use mostly left brain hemisphere) and intuitive thoughts (use mostly right brain hemisphere)…under our control, by the way.
We use our heart to sense the depth, the energy, the inner senses of what is going on. The heart accesses another dimension to life. You know you have met people who have no heart connection in operation and then those who do. There is a difference to the person and to the thoughts each has access to. This is written as a tease for a new concept I have received and done some research concerning the interactions of the Logical Mind + Intuitive Mind + Heart Mind Space. They all work together.
I teach/coach this stuff. Life becomes much more than just 3-Dimensional. It becomes satiating, fulfilling, achievements of innermost desires.
Some people are sensitive to feeling their heart space. How do these thoughts make you feel? Joyous and happy or upset at the past? Do they raise you up above past life woes or leave you clinging to them? Where will they lead you, to your dreams or to your sadness?
Be Deliberate in Your Thoughts
Create, select and craft the thoughts that take you where you want to go in life. Identify those thoughts that do not…and pull them like you pull weeds out of a flower bed.
Then immediately plant the seed of some newly crafted thoughts from the previous step to be mindful.
Nourish the new thought-seed:
Write it down in first person: I have __. I Am __. I am doing __.
Read it frequently.
Own it every single time you think of it…as if it is you, already.
Feel it viscerally using your imagination. Choose the feelings that go with having it.
Take some time to close your eyes, relax and create some dreams about having it, doing it, being it. Play with it. Embrace it, as if it is you and your life.
Be committed and persistent
Remember the power of commitment only has the limit that are its owner’s limit…you. Whatever you believe is your limit, is, by definition. You establish your limits.Read this poem by Goethe; it’s on this blog and can be downloaded.
Keep at it. Using these inner power skills the only way you do not get what you want is if you give up. By definition, the Universe, the Intelligent Quantum Field, the God/Spirit/Buda… always says ‘YES’ to your deep-seated requests of life.
Set yourself up for Success
Practice this on easier things in the beginning, Do not try to use this on the most difficult thing. Select easy, simple things to learn how it feels to approach it differently. Practice it and learn that you can gain dominion over you and your inner self.
I find that worthwhile
This is a natural way for high achievers to improve themselves: Always find that place to accept life as it, Let It Be, because from there you can most effectively initiate change.

Each one of these I do is unique because I somehow sense it through inner hearing, seeing, knowing. It is always unique for the people present. That is the most common comment I have from people who have private sessions, that somehow it was right for them. My Intuitive Mind (which I teach people how to develop theirs) receives what is the right thing to guide everyone to do.
Sometimes I experience it but usually I do not. For me I am delivering the made-to-order script for the journey. Strange, I know.
Many moons ago, let’s see, I bought my first crystal bowl 28 years ago not having a clue as to why. Now, remember I am an electrical engineer. I did well in global corporations living in the Far East, Middle East, Western US and Texas, my home state. And…
I HAD TO HAVE THIS BOWL. I was working for a small microchip packaging house and the bowl was a lot of money; I think $250. I was not making much working for a semiconductor processing house. AND I HAD TO HAVE THIS BOWL. We must follow that strong unusual energy that screams at us to do something lol
From the first time I played it I saw things, felt things. I was reluctant to let a friend hear it. Finally, I did and I guided Mark through a journey unique for him. When I moved from Austin to Denver I arrived to find the expected job gone. So, I did what any ‘lost’ engineer would do: I started doing crystal bowl meditations for any meditation group in Colorado for donations. What a switch from living in Indonesia, all expenses paid.
I led a meditation at Cherry Creek Church of Religious Science for all who stayed after service for more than a year. A group paid for me to record my first ever guided crystal bowl meditation master for cassettes. That was at Sounds True studio, well known for uplifting multimedia, audio, video.
This journey has taken me on my own journey to learn how to access and use my Creative Mind. Us engineers have very developed Logical Minds that we often get stuck within and forget there are other modes to life.
I ask people to write on index cards their experience. Here are some:
What a deep meditation! Tribulations melted away and rainbow energy came in to fill that space. ~ DP
Completely released all anxiety about new life I am creating. Much better picture of what I want. ~ PMC
Released some fear/vulnerability. I feel incredibly special, energetic, charged ~ Kay Roberts
– Warmth – Radiance – Vibration ~ M.C.
I’ve had trouble meditating because of pain in my body and was feeling that, but when we finished my body cracked in about 6 places and I felt lighter. Thank you! ~ Gail Maynard Gonzales
Beautiful vibrations and sounds – Images. Good breathing energy. ~ TS
Peaceful vibrational energy calm centered. I included so many people in my love and peace for their healing. ~ GN
Natural space of openness ~ Jerry
As I listened and breathed into my chakras I felt pain arising up and down my spine. The pain at the base of my cervical vertebra began vibrating, aching and stayed with the sounds as the waterfall released. I felt every pain leaving my spine; lengthening. The bird I emerged in came from within a lush jungle. I shot up toward the Milky Way then soaring toward poppy fields in France. I recognized that I was a macaw and that my physical being became light energy – the cloud parted and I realized that I am inviting love, passion, health, curiosity, wonder, creativity energy were surrounding me and that I am complete my beautiful family circle of friends, possibilities and that I am totally free to adventure through many realms for the rest of my life and that my life wonderfully aligned. ~ CC
Extreme openness and freedom expansion. ~ M
Felt peace, alignment, connection. ~ KB
Imagined myself owning my land near the blue lake. My house is surrounded by different flowers. As I was dreaming my negative thoughts were draining
I saw my family. My present child a little older and we were at the perfect daycare. I was holding him and I was pregnant. The woman was amazing and we were surrounded in nature. My husband was there, happy and strong. I knew I had everything we needed. I was working doing what I love. I’m writing it all down cause it will come true.
Come join us. It will be the most relaxed you have felt in a long time.
You deserve it 🙂
I’ve had sacral chakra problems and hip pain from some very painful issues. Tonight I had a beautiful journey. I traveled with my spirit guide bison and saw my inner child laying covered in leaves and moss by a lovely blue river. My inner child has need some healing and I feel I have a ___ to love her nourish her, and continue a healing path for myself and others. ~ Marvela
“I felt like I was the pulsing vibrational energy. At one point I heard a tone that made my soul homesick. It was angelic”
“Feeling of overwhelming great love & joy. Healing! I believe & know I am cancer free. Held in divine power love & grace. ~ET”
“Amazing! Pure joy! Sublime”
“My hands got numb. I felt myself free. Relaxed.”
“Very relaxing and loving sensations. Was good to be reminded of my angels and guides. This is the third time I have done this but only the first time I really enjoyed it.”
“Eyes were tearing. Felt relaxed, very hard to do! Hands felt strange”
“Heavy. Vast energy out there. Love.”
“Ocean _ raft. Elevator of light sending out in space. Stars. Ple____ beyond. Welcome home, home, home.”
“Crystals then lilacs, daffodils, waterfalls, lake stars. Large angel Native American floating on giant maple leaf purity and everything”
“Both eyes teared and ran down my cheek. Not sadness, completely unconscious. Thought I heard sound from other side of room”
In this physical world, wellness levels are generally measured by how fit people are and how good their life appears. Yet there is much more to a person’s quality of life than meets the eye.
The most important measurements for wellness are found in the quality of the unseen aspects within people. How open to life is someone’s heart? How much of an emotional and spiritual balance does one maintain? What is the quality of underlying thoughts people have about themselves and their lives?
While people generally measure wellness through what can be seen, they miss the true source. With an eye toward a holistic perspective, wellness is an optimal state of being in life, in mind, in heart and in body. The more people experience being in balance within their own selves, to their own expectations, the more they are living in a state of well-being.
It is easy to observe physical growth and compare it to statistics in order to evaluate progress. Parents do this as their kids grow up and go to the doctor when it does not measure up to standards. Teens, as they grow into adulthood, learn to do the same for themselves. Yet how are people to observe, measure and evaluate their unseen inner aspects?
Each person learns to identify his or her unique signs of well-being. It can be seen in the calmness of breath, a gentle heart rate, good feelings within the body, ease with life and thoughts that are more optimistic.
The wonderful truth about the way humans are designed is that they can be self-correcting, initiating change in life starting from within the self. When there is an imbalance, changes can be made. This is empowering to the people who have that fire inside to live a great life.
Take time to consider the quality of wellness in different areas of life. What areas are working and which need help? Consider physical, spiritual, emotional, mental, relationships, play, self-care, financial and business. Ask questions: What needs to change? What feels out of balance within? What is always a struggle? Is there a pattern in life that is uncomfortable? Is there an inner sense that something needs attention? What generates common complaints? Is there a dream that was left behind because of fear? What is unresolved that is blocking the good in life?
Use the inherent inner ability to select thoughts and intent to make change easier instead of difficult. Approach this from a state of curiosity. Consider making changes to be a new project instead of being some horribly difficult task.
Five Steps to Get There
Establish an inner readiness for change. Ask: Is there a willingness to change? Then make a choice to let go of the problem to make room for this new project. If there is resistance to letting go then contemplate what that is. Try writing it out and talking with a friend or a professional with the intent to release it.
Choose what is wanted instead. Ask: What would be better than what currently is? Deliberately select what it is and be specific. For example: have an extra $500 a week, an internal sense of well-being, a healed heart from love pains, increased self-esteem, peaceful thoughts, increased creativity, clarity about what is important in life or be more loving to themselves. Clear choices produce clear outcomes.
Gain dominion over thoughts. Ask: What thoughts support this change? Imagine what thoughts a person may have who already have this outcome; adopt them. Identify current thoughts that do not support this and imagine pulling them like weeds in a garden. Then imagine planting seeds of these new deliberately chosen thoughts to have them grow in mind. Write these thoughts down that resonate with what is desired in life. Read frequently.
Imagine it to create it. Take time daily to relax and imagine what life will be like when this occurs. Be in a peaceful environment. Sit comfortably, close the eyes and do some deep belly breathing to inhale a great life and exhale the tiredness and old energies. Imagine the desired outcomes as if they are already present in life.
Believe and Receive. Develop a belief that supports the outcome. Read uplifting messages, poems or writings to upgrade what they accept in life, choosing better results while rejecting lesser results. This fosters a consciousness that allows the new desired outcomes to be received.
Using this inner-driven change process requires that one only stays focused on the desired outcomes. Do not try and figure out how it will happen. Allow and receive new ideas on the how-to steps, and then do them.
People have found a customized fountain of youth using this process. Their clarity of life is renewed. Energies are awakened. Achievement is established as their norm while their heart centers are reborn to life’s unconditional love and infinite streams of possibilities.

On the Saturday night before Memorial Day slightly before 10pm I walk into Liquid Floats to relax in a flotation tank, isolation tank, aka sensory deprivation tank.
They show me to my room, explain things and close the door.
I take off my clothes and take a quick shower. Get the soap off. Turn off the room lights and slip into this pod with heavily salted water. Push a button and the isolation tank inside light goes off.
It is absolute darkness. No spec of light. It is slippery on the skin with so much salt in the water.
I am now floating in this water that is so salted that I float half above and half under the water. The environment is pitch black even with my eyes wide open. The temperature matches my skin temperature. At some point in the relaxation process the defining line between my skin and the water blurs and goes away.
These defining lines between my physicality blur so that I am left with my consciousness. Aahh
You have a choice of listening to music or not. I wanted this ninety minutes to be absolute silence outside so I could find absolute silence inside myself.
I did my inner energy activation cycle, my deep relaxation countdown and a spiritual mind treatment to let go of the world, of my concerns and find silence and peace within.
Then I heard a familiar voice from within say: Stop doing; Stop controlling, Just receive. STOP. Breathe. Receive. Let go. There is nothing for you to do. So, I did. Some people will understand how important it is to listen to those inner cues. I then just floated into a very peaceful place inside and floated with no imagery and a quiet mind.
Aaahhh, I am happy I am a meditator and a stress management specialist. The ability to deeply relax with deep breathing and mental focus works very quickly. Then I focused to release thought and external reality to quiet my mind which is one of the most empowering mind skills that is in my tool bag.
I did not think that I went out, as in sleep, but the time seemed to be shorter than expected. So, I was at least in the Intuitive Mind where time is not linear.
I lifted myself out as I opened the pod lid…wanting another 90 minutes.
One instant benefit is that my core temperature dropped a couple of degrees; I tend to run warm. So the ac thermostat at home went up 2 degrees that night.
[Stay tuned for float #2 which was a very different experience.]
Calming and Peaceful vibrations of sound engulfing you gently to support you in letting go…deep relaxation.
Bring your troubles and worries to release them…
Bring your dreams and passions to ignite them…
Bring your heart with wounds to heal it…
Bring your expansive soul to unleash it…
And most of all bring your entire BEing to free your Self to be your Self!
Know that All Is Well
…As Love, Lamar

To tap into the human potential is to explore the multiple layers that make up the human. Along the journey a person realizes that it is like going down the proverbial rabbit hole into a new world of wonder that exists within them self forever expansive, forever infinite, forever creative and forever a grand adventure.
This is a brief overview of Four Core Principles of Human Potential
Remember from science class that potential energy remains a potential until it is activated to become kinetic energy which is when it becomes an action in life. Our potential is the same. It resides as a potential until we Activate it to become an action in our life.
Below you will see the Core Principle (potential) on the left that -> (leads to) the Life Skill (kinetic – action) on the right.
* Principle of Human Potential: Brain Intelligence-> Life Skill: Directing Your Thoughts
It is more than valuable to tame your thoughts and direct them to chosen endeavors. It has been shown that effective self-direction leads to greater mental focus, increases creative thoughts and leads to a major reduction in physical, mental and emotional stresses.
Medical Science tells us that 90% of illnesses are directly caused by persisting levels of stress in our human system. And we know that at least 90% of all problems in life are occurring because of internal persisting stresses (mentally, emotionally, energetically) that prevent the natural good from coming into our life.
To know how to direct our thoughts is actually a fundamental life skill for any person who wishes to live a life beyond their norm. This is part of my repertoire.
Tools for this include Deliberate Creative Visualization, Optimal Imagination, Mental Focus and Stress Management.
And we are so much more than just our Brains and thoughts. There are layers available to each of us that are beneath our mental perceptions fundamentally occurring within and through us. Direction of our thoughts leads to the ability to direct these forces BUT is mostly submissive to most of the other principles.
* Principle of Human Potential: Heart Intelligence -> Life Skill: Identifying Your Heart’s Sensory Signals
Science has now shown that our organs contain neurons, which are the make-up of our brains that lead to our ability to make mental decisions. The poets and romantics have said for ages that we should follow our hearts. I add to that “while maintaining a balanced input from all of our sensory inputs.” Each person’s heart is a unique layer of valuable guidance available to help them navigate to a better and better life.
The Heart’s Sensory Signals are always occurring within our Human System. To be able to identify the heart signals, listen to them and then make wise decisions using the heart’s input helps people to live a life beyond their norm. This training is part of my repertoire.
Tools for this include Emotional Management, Universal Love Meditation, Self-Direction on Heart Attunement, Life GPS.
* Principle of Human Potential: Intuitive Intelligence -> Life Skill: Hearing & Directing Your Intuition
Dr. Michael Gershon is picking up on research begun in the early 1900s about how our gastro-intestinal system provides us feedback on much more than just what we eat 😉 His book is The Second Brain.
The intuition can come from sensations in the guts and from unexpected and instantaneous KNOWING thoughts. A person can train their brains to receive intuitive thoughts directly from this energetic channel on cue. This training is part of my repertoire.
Tools for this include Creative Visualization, Expansive Imagination, Taming the Logical Chatter.
* Principle of Human Potential: Quantum Intelligence -> Life Skill: Tapping Your I AM Intelligence
Quantum physicists tell us that every person, rock, animal, cloud, waterway, tree – everything – is different levels of vibrating quantum energy. This includes all of life, seen and unseen. Quantum energy contains quantum intelligence. Just like we know that in each of our cells is all the intelligence to recreate our human form.
It is a progressive process to train yourself to have the skill to identify, hear and direct the multitudes of quantum energies – Quantum Intelligence – that make up who you are. This is accomplished by working directly with the Laws of Life including Oneness, Creativity, Law of Attraction, Reciprocal Universe, An Abundant Universe and much more.
Learning these are what many will consider walking a Spiritual Path. Learning these leads to an expanded Cosmology in your MIND.
As we accept that we are not separate from our Source/Quantum Intelligence – and that we cannot be nor can ever be separate – our life will unfold more and more into being a life that reflects abundance, good, creativity, living your passion and achieving your goals. These skills lead to an advanced state of living life. This is part of my repertoire.
Tools for this include Contemplative Meditation, Visual Expansion of Self, A Freed Mind & Imagination.
* Principle of Human Potential: MIND Intelligence -> Life Skill: Living Your True Nature
Our MIND encompasses all of the above principles working within our Personal Matrix in synchronous unison intently for us to have our highest good and to live our highest life. As a person works with these Core Principles of Human Potential their Mastery of Life increases through the proper use of these new Life Skills.
This continuously unfolding of our MIND’s Intelligence results in a Resetting of Your Human System to a new Set Point so that you can live a Better and Better Life.
Tools for this include the Visioning Process, Finding Inner Answers.
* Principle of Human Potential: Quantum Matrix -> Life Skill: Collective & Synchronous Power
As we find our power through these inward focused principles and life skills we begin to sense a collective consciousness and tap into our passion and mission on this planet. You are now ready to take your unfolding personal power to work with others to achieve a greater good on this planet, as you are directed to do and to be.
One tool for this is the MasterMind Process.
Contact me if you are interested in any of these services, want me to do a few-hour experiential presentation to your group or if you want to sponsor me to come to your city, state, country.
Another book I want to mention is by a man I have met: The bestselling How God Changes Your Brain by Mark Robert Waldman. It is a game changer for life. The neuroscience proves that a simple few minutes practiced daily for 8 weeks increases your brain capacity by 40% and more in different abilities. Go there and see him speak and his other 11+ books: http://www.markrobertwaldman.com/
These principles are some of the fundamental aspects of the Mind Technology Learning System through classes, coaching, speaking, etc… Contact me for services and questions – and with comments.
This story by ABC News Nightline, Dan Harris, has so much information and value.
Finally: Science is Thawing the Resistance to Mainstream Meditation
I understand that most people need science to justify new things that have been serving humanity for thousands of years. Believe me. I am a degreed electrical engineer who relies on logic for much of life and had to do a lot of training to balance out my thought processes to include more intuitive and creative thoughts. But that logical mind runs amok at times and prevents us from doing things that are good for us, especially practices that have proven to help some communities for hundreds of years.
AND the good news is that the re-burgeoning field of neuroscience, now that they have the equipment to do so, is measuring the immediate and noticeable impact on human’s brains while meditating. I caught part of the story on ABC’s Nightline last night and it was great!
Click the link below to see several very interesting short stories about meditation
Each segment has a different person and focus. Very well done!
(I am looking for a way to embed this video on this page since ABC News doesn’t make it easy like other streaming sites do. Until then you will be rewarded by clicking the link.)
There are four segments from 1 to 8 minutes each. Each one is great
Segment 1: Benefits of meditation
It is estimated that 20 million Americans are regular meditators.
Look at the graphs of brain activity while meditating which shows a marked increase in activity. Soon after someone starts meditating the parts of the brain associated with compassion and awareness grow while the parts associated with stress shrink. Plus researchers found that these new meditators were less mean to each other and began to use ‘we’ instead of ‘I’, a sign of letting go of our controlling egos. Great solution to emotional self management, a skill that is needed by all.
They also mention how meditation has made it into some of mainstream America; in Fortune 500 Corporations, elementary schools, musicians, etc.
Segment 2: An interview with the Dalai Lama
Even the Dalai Lama says that he loses his temper once in a while. He continues: if someone does not ever lose their temper then he doesn’t believe them. And if that’s true then they must come from some other space (indicating that they are aliens).
YIPPEE! I SO AGREE. We are not designed to be completely positive. This is a misconception about the impact of meditation. This validates my concept in this blog post Gossip & Effective Communication under ‘Positive Facades’. We are not designed to never have difficulty. We are designed to be authentic. Life is designed as a place where we continue to learn how to be greater. And at times there are ‘downs’.
Segment 3: Overview of meditation
A 1 minute introduction to meditation
Segment 4 – Book: Real Happiness
This is a discussion with Sharon Salzberg, author of Real Happiness. She is one of the US’s foremest meditation teachers. Dan Harris asks her about her childhood and how she overcame that through meditation. Interesting.
To my students and coaching clients: please listen to this as motivation to do your daily practice. Remember how it felt in class and make a choice to better your lives for your sake and for your family.
To anyone else: Check this out. Consider it. We have to do something different in life when we want a different outcome.
Trust the science over your internal resistance. Once you begin to do just a few minutes daily in a few weeks you will start noticing a difference to how you view yourself, view life and have more self control and direction. I have taught meditation in Spiritual Centers and through a scientific method that just takes minutes to practice and I still find value and an increasing inner strength plus a stronger sense of self. However you learn it, use it.
This writing is inspired by the sermon that Marianne Williamson gave at the Agape International Spiritual Center this morning. This is the Spiritual Center of Rev. Dr. Michael Beckwith; from the movie The Secret, Oprah, Larry King Live, on the world stage. You can see his Sunday service online at www.agapelive.com. It is more than just an uplifting experience. Marianne Williamson, www.marianne.com gave an incredible talk, inspired and practical; mind and heart enhancing.
[For people who are not familiar with some terms. ‘Go to level’ means to meditate while staying focused. Beta mind refers to your experience of the world as you know it with your eyes open and fully engaged with your senses.]
One reason to go to level frequently, at a minimum daily, is to wash away the stresses from yesterday in order to keep yourself from going stress-psychotic and reacting to this world of form in destructive ways through destructive thinking.
Let us take a short journey through the limited world of being normal.
Our five physical senses do a great job at showing us ‘what is’, what is in our life now, the problems, the judgments, the pains, the world news, etc. The world detected by this and our emotions is a world that already exists. And in this outer world, some may call the ego world, we only have the mortal thoughts with which to handle it. These mortal thoughts and reactions will keep this outer world doing what it knows how to do since, in this mind state, all thoughts and ideas come from your collected database of knowledge of ‘what is’ and ‘what has been’ and are experienced by and stored through your beta mind into the left hemisphere. We know this well; it is the origin of any problems we may experience. And it keeps building and we get more stressed and we react more so out of self righteousness and indignation, qualities of our limited ego mind that thinks it is separate from us and from everyone else. We get to be right. The price of being right is illness, negativity, doubt, misguided deeds, separation, feelings of inadequacy, etc. The ultimate price of being right is living a disconnected existence, living small and not doing what and not being who we came here to do and be.
Let us take a journey through the unlimited world of BEING.
By going to level you are entering into a meditative state, a prayerful state, a place from which you operate from your centered being where you are connected to the infinite intelligence through your intuition. It is as if you left the apparent world of form with all its baggage, walked through a hallway and emerged into the majestical Theater of All.
The first benefit is that outside world experience begins to fade away as you turn your attention to your inner self and its world of possibilities. Any built up stress begins to immediately drain from your body. Any built up negative thinking begins to immediately drain from your mind. If that is not enough of a reason then…
The second benefit is you plug into increased intelligence, to commune with the infinite creativity using your intuition. By entering this world of cause daily you are choosing to empower that infinite potential self within. You are choosing to dis-empower that limited self that lives without; without the saving grace of new and creative thoughts that lead to an expanded life.
The third benefit is that once you have disconnected from ‘what is’ and connected to ‘what can be’ you can now generate ‘what shall be’ from your unlimited, loving, compassionate, expansive, inspiring, awesome, vision-driven, infinite and authentic self.
Let us now call upon our divinely-given skill of Free Will and make a choice.
What have you chosen? What do you choose now?
Imagine making this choice every day.
Imagine making this choice with eagerness.
Imagine facing each day born anew and feeling unencumbered by the past.
Imagine intuiting empowering thoughts from your unlimited potential.
Imagine witnessing your own transformation as they become the majority of your thoughts.
Imagine, as a direct result, feeling empowered and transformative feelings.
Imagine allowing your perfect life to unfold from within driven by your Highest Vision and Purpose.
Imagine Living as an expanded BEing.
Imagine Living in an expanded World.
Imagine It. Be It. Live It.
And, So It Shall Be. And, So It Is.
Meditative Thought from Michael Bernard Beckwith
How do we become authentically, totally free? Is it even possible in the three dimensional realm? My personal conclusion is that we cannot find absolute freedom in the external world. We have to go beyond the five senses of the outer world and enter the fourth dimensional inner realm where we use our sixth sense, intuition, to directly contact the authentic self.
The authentic self is formless-no description on Facebook or Twitter can describe the authentic self, It is made of pure consciousness. The more deeply we move towards actualizing this awareness the more we infuse our outer lives with its beauty and freedom has tremendous beauty.
Announcing a new meditation group on Monday evenings from 7-8 pm in south Austin.

Thank you for your understanding, flexibility and support as I remotely plan how to bring these life-betterment mind skills back to the San Antonio area.
May your life be better and better… every single day.
I know people who get my e-mails hear me touting the benefits and promoting these classes. What may not come across in this two-dimensional typewritten medium is the impact that my heart feels from my student’s successes. There is nothing in this life as rewarding as witnessing student’s burgeoning personal power and watching them make their lives better and better.
Here are three recent stories that just happened…
From a couple of F’s on report cards to the Dean’s List
This happened Monday. I want to acknowledge someone in college who was a B and C student with a couple of F’s who just found out that he was just named on the Dean’s List at his University. He took the Silva Method original BLS class where he learned the student skills that are now in the Silva Life System class. The very next term he went from C’s and B’s to B’s and an A. Now he is on the Dean’s List. He also tells me that he has found a joy in doing very well that was not there before. Major Congratulations Andrew, in Austin.!
The specific student skills of the many different life skills learned in the class include:
Improving comprehension, retention and recall of material read
Improving comprehension, retention and recall of material from a lecture
A unique 3-Pass Test-Taking method that allows the student to recall information that was at first forgotten while taking the test, even when you don’t have a clue
If you have read the best-selling Silva Mind Control book written by Jose Silva (I have copies), the founder and researcher of the Silva Method, you will know that this is the very origin of what is now known as the Silva Method. A couple of his children came home one day with some very bad grades. He asked them what was wrong. They said that they had studied and knew the information but got nervous while taking the test. From his research he knew that when you are in fear you do not have access to the part of the brain that has the information you have studied and already know. Thus he created a technique to train his children to de-stress and relax their mind and body… on cue while taking a test. This, plus he taught them how to ‘index’ learned material in the brain in a way to make it easier to recall and have superior comprehension. With these skills Jose’s children’s grades improved so well that the neighborhood parents had him train their children, whose grades promptly improved also.
Healing occurs when there is the environment for the body’s natural health to come forth
When I was doing yard work I picked up a slab of old concrete which shattered in my hands, a piece of the concrete sliced my hand in the fatty part of the thumb below the knuckle. The cut was only about an inch across but it must have been deep because it splattered blood as it sliced me and blood was just pouring out. The first thing I thought was I was definitely going to need stitches. I went inside and ran the cut under water, cleaned it, and wrapped it in a paper towel and raised my arm up to try to stop the bleeding but the blood just kept pouring. I wanted to stop the bleeding so I calmed my mind and gave complete focus to the injury and told it to stop bleeding. Within 20 seconds the bleeding completely stopped and it wasn’t even wrapped in the paper towel.
After I got the bleeding stopped I sat down, went to level and visualized my injury healing. I pictured the open cut sealing up like a zip lock bag and then my hand being completely normal. After meditating, I put a band aid on the cut and tried not to move or use that part of my hand for a few days. After 3 days I was able to use my thumb and hand again, not fearing opening back up the cut, and couple of days after that my hand showed almost no signs of being cut!
In the Silva Life System class we teach a hand levitation technique to enter the theta level of mind. In this technique we train you to develop Glove Anesthesia at the frequency of your biological intelligence.
Bill McC., Kentucky – He took the Silva Intuitive Mind training in April and had taken the original Basic Lecture Series previously
A husband notices a more relaxed wife
At the Silva Graduate meeting this past Sunday someone told me that her husband told her that she is a more relaxed person in life. She then told me that she is not worrying about things like she did before and she is feeling more relaxed and trusting that things will turn out. Ever since she took the Silva Intuitive Mind training in April she has listened to the Long Relax exercise every night. Tami T., Austin, Texas
I tell every class to get this CD and listen to it at least once a week for a year. She chooses to listen to it every night and her husband is seeing the change in her way of managing life. Briefly I say to do this because every difficulty, problem or concern in life is at its base a tangle of stress that is in the thought process and/or is in the body. When it is in the body it is more likely to lead to disease since it is a dis-ease within your form. In the class I cover the science behind this extremely effective exercise.
This exercise is 35 minutes in length. A medical doctor who took the class last year told me that he put it on his iPod and listens to it when and where he finds the time. If anyone wants to get this Silva Method Long Relax CD that I recorded I will discount them to $17 including shipping to the contiguous 48 states. These retail for $17 + shipping and packaging costs. Click here for this special.
I have a tendency to keep talking about this but… you know, this all speaks for itself along with the millions of stories across the globe over the past decades.
