Let’s take a look at what happens in our brain when we visualize the future. There are two parts of our brain—the conscious and the subconscious. The conscious part of the brain is the part we are aware of; the conscious brain focuses on one thing at a time, whatever we think is important at the moment.
The subconscious brain doesn’t think this way. The subconscious brain sees a complete picture of everything happening all at once. The subconscious mind is aware of the input from all of your senses at every moment.
Your ability to focus, plan, feel or do anything is intimately tied to the mix of five different types of brainwaves your brain is producing at any given moment in time. Your brain produces multiple brainwaves simultaneously, but you are at your best when your brainwaves are perfectly aligned with what you are doing. But here’s the problem: Our over-thinking, over-stressed culture forces our brains to stay in the beta wave pattern more than our brains were meant to.
Let’s take a closer look at the five different types of brainwaves so you can more fully understand why it’s a problem when Beta Waves dominate.
Your brain – that three-pound hunk of matter located between your ears – is the most sophisticated, complex, and miraculous piece of equipment ever known to humankind. It controls everything you see, say, feel, and do. With such a powerful tool at your disposal, isn’t it your responsibility to understand how it works and how to make it work optimally?
Here are some fundamentals.
First, it’s important to understand that you are nothing but energy. If you took a high-powered microscope and looked at the smallest, most fundamental pieces of matter – not atoms, protons, and electrons, but the minuscule neutrons, gluons, quarks, and mesons that these subatomic particles are made of – you would see nothing but little bits of electromagnetic vibrating waves of light. Those bits are what you’re made of, and your brain controls the vibration of every one of them.
Second, it’s important to know that your brain can grow new brain cells (or neurons) in a process called neurogenesis. Not so long ago, scientists believed that people were hardwired or born with genetic predispositions and makeup. But now when someone says, “That’s just the way I am, this is the way I was born,” we know they’re only half right. While genetic predisposition accounts for about half of your internal programming, the other fifty percent comes from behaviors, perceptions, beliefs, and habits you may have learned as far back as childhood and conditioned into your brain.
Here’s the good news: by understanding how your brain works, you can change your old conditioning and tap into your brain’s inherent genius to achieve your goals and dreams.
If you would like to discover how to overcome the beliefs that are hindering your success, start with my FREE guide below.
Look at this incredible statistic:
According to Dr. Edward Miller, Dean of John’s Hopkins’s University,
Nine out of ten people who have gone thru heart bypass surgery do not change their behaviors or lifestyles after surgery knowing they face death as a result of not changing!
It’s sad but true. There is also a way to stop this.
Read on to find out why this happens.
For over 20 years I have been studying why some people are able to achieve the success they want in life while others struggle daily as if fighting for the air they breathe.
The research that keeps coming back over and over again points to the human brain.
You are currently wired to experience and achieve exactly what your current results are showing you. Please don’t get me wrong, you are capable of much more, and that is why you are frustrated.
The way we are raised and taught when we are young will determine our results as an adult. If you are not happy with certain results in your life right now, you must change from the inside out.
Using will power and persistence is a temporary act that fizzles out very quickly, as you already know.
Your brain controls all your perceptions and behaviors. Unfortunately, its responsibility is to keep you at whatever current result you are getting. Nothing less and nothing more.
Sure, you can trick it to losing weight or making more money, but it will almost always bring you back to your current level of non-conscious expectations and true beliefs. That is its job.
The “Hard-Wiring” in your brain is your current level of programming or conditioning. You may not like it, but it’s the truth.
You can never achieve more in your life without adding new and “better programming”.
It’s like upgrading software on your computer. If you want better performance from your computer, you do something to the inside, not the outside.
Here’s the good news:
Using the latest in brain research and physics we now have brand new ways to get “inside” your head to help you make the mental shifts you must make first, in order to see the changes in your life on the outside.
People have been using the wrong tools for making change and that is why it is so frustrating. With the advancements we’ve made in science, many more people will be able to make more money and finally live the lives they dream of, in total health and balance.
It takes about 15 minutes a day to rewire the neural circuits of the brain and the results are amazing. Read below to see what Forensic Psychiatrist Dr Louis Cady has to say:
(I have hundreds of testimonials just like this)
“It was like I had been driving around in a Pinto and John gave me a Lamborghini. After more than a decade in private practice, this workshop finally provided the ‘missing link’ for me to effect much faster change in my patients—and myself!”

If you are serious about creating abundance in your life and business and truly are prepared to invest yourself to do finally do it right, I highly recommend that you start with my FREE guide below.
As you already know (and have posted comments about), making a recording of yourself talking about your new belief, then listening to that audio twice or more a day can be extremely beneficial. This method of reprogramming is effective for all kinds of beliefs, ranging from health to wealth, from business success to charitable contribution, from relationships to spirituality, from productivity to creativity. Your main time investment will be up front in making the recording, which can be as simple (just your recorded voice) or as elaborate (including music, sound effects, and so on), as short (just five minutes) or as long (half an hour) as you like. After your recording is complete, you can listen to it while driving, as you go to sleep, as your “alarm” to wake you up in the morning. Be creative!
Creating a recording can help you reach your goals. To write the script…
1) Imagine what your life will be like as a result of achieving your goal, and
2) Describe it all in the present tense, as if it’s already happening.
A script to be used for the goal of running a half marathon might start like this:
I love how it feels to run because my body is in such great condition. I can feel my heart working, and my breath is strong and even. My quadriceps and calves are tested but don’t burn out. I am a healthy, vibrant person who respects the body as the amazing vessel it is: home to my soul. I am in the zone and running better than I ever have before. I am getting faster and stronger every day…
As you reprogram yourself and listen to your audio, you can also add other visualization techniques have learned. Top athletes visualize religiously, because they know it unlocks potential at a level that analysis and even physical practice don’t reach. By repeatedly visualizing the outcome you want, you create new cells of recognition in your subconscious. This way, your body gets used to that behavior and then expects it. To use your recording to help you visualize, instead of just listening passively to the recording, close your eyes and picture everything happening exactly as you hear yourself describe it. (Not a good idea while running or driving, but you can do this at other times.) It’s as if you’ve created a “movie” you can play over and over in your mind. Try it!

If you are really serious about achieving greater financial success you must read and understand this now.
In my many years of studying human perception and peak behavior it never ceases to amaze me how many people think that we see with our eyes. We don’t!
We see when light bounces off an external object and enters our eye through the cornea, causing complex chemical reactions and electrical impulses to occur. This allows our brain to decipher the information from our external world and to determine whether or not it is important to us. It is actually our brain that sees and not our eyes. Our eyes are just like the lens on a camera – they allow in light that is reflected off objects so that our brain can see and process information.
Seems pretty simple right? Now, you may be asking why this is important to earning money and so I’ll explain to you what is really going on and why it’s especially important to you if want to achieve higher levels of financial success.
The way your brain works is really amazing when it comes to capturing and analyzing information. However, herein lies the problem.
Every second about 400 billion pieces of “information” from the outside world is being picked up through your eyes and your non-conscious mind. Your conscious mind however is made aware of up to only 2,000 of those pieces of information. That means that over 9.9999 million pieces of information are being dropped from your conscious awareness at any given time.
Your brain searches the outside world for patterns and images that it currently recognizes or deems highly important. It drops all other sensory information from your perception if it is not on your “important list” or part of your current mental programming or conditioning.
With that said, if you are conditioned to earn a certain income or if your company is used to generating certain revenues, your brain is will consistently seek out opportunities that match that level of income. Nothing less, nothing more.
Earning more income is totally an inside mental game and not an outside game. Working harder used to be the answer because that is what our parents, teachers and mentors taught us we should do. They didn’t know better. Today we do.
With all the advancements in brain research and recent understandings in quantum physics, you owe it to yourself to really understand how your priceless brain works and how to take control of all its powerful systems. In the last six years alone the advancements in human potential have been huge, especially in understanding why people get stuck financially.
If you are still working way too hard daily, then you are really missing the boat on taking your income or revenues to your true potential.
If you are interested in maximizing your income, revenues and living a healthier, happier life, I urge you to consider my goal achieving program that will show you the most advanced process to achieve any goal you deserve and desire.
To Having It All!
I’d like to clarify a few simple concepts about the brain, consciousness, and the mind.
The brain is the organ of the central nervous system that has the greatest number of neurons clustered together. When neurons are in great number, we have intelligence. As a matter of fact, the brain consists of some one hundred billion neurons that are connected in a myriad of three-dimensional patterns. The diverse combinations of these billions of neurons linked together and firing in unique sequences are neural networks or neural nets, as they are affectionately called by scientists. When nerve cells team up and make new connections, it is because we learned something new. We are, therefore, changed by our individual learning as well as personal experiences.
Nerve cells or neurons are extremely tiny. About 30,000 – 50,000 fit on the tip of a pin. In one part of the brain called the neocortex, each nerve cell has the possibility of linking with 40,000 – 50,000 other nerve cells. In another section of the brain called the cerebellum, nerve cells have the potential of connection with up to a million other nerve cells.
Because the human brain affords so many possible connections between neurons, and because neurons are unique cells that can communicate directly with each other, the brain is able to process thought, perform actions, demonstrate behaviors, speculate possibilities, remember experiences, and learn new things, just to name a few. Therefore, the brain is the instrument that facilitates conscious awareness.
Let’s talk now about consciousness. Consciousness is not the same thing as the brain. Think of consciousness as what inhabits and occupies this bio-computer called the brain. We have the ability to think and, at the same time, observe our own thinking process. Consciousness is our awareness of self and our awareness of the world around us. Equally, it is that intelligence in us that consistently and consciously gives us life, moment by moment.
Therefore, there are two elements to our consciousness. Part of consciousness maintains an individual free will–the part of you and me that is a thinking personality with our own traits and characteristics. This is the conscious aspect of our selves with certain unique qualities. It is subjective and it therefore has the ability to learn, to remember, to create, to dream, to choose, and even to not choose. We will call this part of consciousness, secondary consciousness.
The other element of consciousness, which we’ll call primary consciousness or the subconscious, has to do with the intelligent awareness within us that gives us life every day. This is a system of awareness that is separate from the conscious mind. It is what keeps our body in order. Thus, as a bio-computer, the brain has the ability to process trillions of automatic functions every second on a cellular level and an aggregate level as well, of which we are consciously unaware. Specific parts of the brain possess specialized anatomy to manage these rudimentary processes. These are the aspects of our health and life that we take for granted every day, the systems that control our heart, digest our food, filter our blood, regenerate cells, and even organize our DNA.
This intelligence knows so much more than what our personality self knows (even though we think we know it all). It takes a great and unlimited consciousness to be so responsible for all of these functions. Few ever stop to acknowledge its power, will, and infinite intelligence.
This aspect of consciousness is what gives life to all things. It is objective and constant. It is the quantum field, the source, point zero, and the void. It is the Observer that observes, holds, and collapses the quantum field into physical form. It is a real intelligence with quantifiable energy or force that is innate to all things. It is, literally, life. Quantum physics, as we are learning, is just beginning to measure this field of potentials.
We as human beings possess both elements of consciousness; we have free will to choose life as we like it, and at the same time, some greater intelligence is giving and allowing us life every second. We are consciously aware as secondary consciousness, and we are connected to primary consciousness. We could not exist without this force of life. As a matter of fact, science is now beginning to understand that everything physical (including you and me) is just the tip of an immense iceberg. The question is, what is the field that holds it all together and how do we make contact with it?
The brain has the equipment, so to speak, to facilitate both these levels of consciousness. When consciousness is facilitated through the human brain, the end result is called mind. Mind is what the brain does. Mind is the brain at work, the brain in action. It is produced when an operating brain is animated with life. There is no mind without the physical expression of life through a working brain.
Mind, then, is the product of consciousness manipulating this fine instrument called the brain. The brain without consciousness is inert and lifeless. Since both of these specific levels of consciousness animate the brain to create mind, we must possess two different arrangements at work in the brain. We have conscious mind and subconscious mind embroidered in two diverse brain processes.
Naturally, the brain has two distinct generalized systems with the proper hardware to facilitate these two types of consciousness. The home of conscious awareness in our brain is in the neocortex, which is our thinking brain. The “crown” of our brain, the neocortex is the seat of our free-willed personality. It is the part of the brain that makes each of us unique, that distinguishes us from other individuals. The neocortex, therefore, is where the secondary consciousness lives. All of our individual experiences and willful learning in this lifetime are recorded and processed in the neocortex.
The parts of the brain that function under subconscious control are the midbrain, the cerebellum, and the brainstem. For the most part, these regions have no conscious centers. However, they do possess an intelligence that not only keeps the body in order, but handles an infinite to-do list. Thank God, you and I as conscious beings do not have to be responsible for 100,000 chemical reactions per second in every cell of the 70 to 100 trillion cells of our body. The consciousness that uses these parts of the brain is literally our connection to the quantum field or primary consciousness.
To summarize, then, the brain is the organ that consciousness uses to manipulate thoughts into learning and experiences. Mind is the product of the brain in action. Mind operates when the brain is “alive,” processing conscious and subconscious mechanisms. Consciousness has two specific qualities. Primary consciousness is the observer, the source, the quantum field, and you and I are connected to it by the way our brain is hooked up to that field through the midbrain, the cerebellum, and the brainstem. Secondary consciousness is the traveler, the free-will personality that learns and evolves its understandings for a greater expression of life. Its home is the neocortex.
When we can unify our conscious mind to that infinite mind with unlimited potentials, we now have access to a world of new possibilities. As a matter of fact, there is a specific science that studies what happens in the brain when we emulate the observer. When we begin to enact our God-given right to create, we eclipse with the observer. Now the observer as primary consciousness is observing our observation as secondary consciousness. Once we understand how the brain works to create mind, we can begin our journey into unknown future potentials. Celebrate the genius that is you!
