Just imagine…

Just imagine… if you could have it all, what would you do and be in your life?

What would you buy, and what would you give?
Whose counsel would you seek?
Where would you go, and what feats would you dare to accomplish?

Just imagine your life, lived without limits.

Create your own vision, one that utilizes your own talents. Every person can create a masterpiece just being themselves. Most people just haven’t tapped into their own greatness. They hate their jobs, don’t get along with their spouse, but stay where they are. What if it didn’t have to be that way?

Would you like to wake up in the morning and feel like you get to, instead of have to, go to work? What if you could have a great relationship? Would you like to have it all—money, health, spiritual connection, a job you love, and great relationships with everyone around you? And balance between each of those areas so you can really enjoy your life? Of course you would.

So are you ready to create a vision of possibility for your own life? Then let’s get to it!

You cannot focus on problems or challenges in your life. Instead, describe your life as if you were waving a magic wand and it would instantly be the way you wanted it. The more specific you are the better.

When you set the perfect life vision, everything must be clear and precise, exactly articulated—even the look and feel. The universe operates by exact and precise laws, as you now know, so there’s no room for ambiguity. Put your answers in the present tense, avoid any words of negativity, and concern yourself only with what you want, not how to get it. Refer back to visions as much as you need.

Don’t shortchange yourself by writing only what you think you can become or have—the universe is infinite in supply, so stretch yourself and go for your heart’s desire.

If you could live your life over…

Hi Friends,

This is a short piece that was sent to me by one of my friends and clients Nandi Shastry, CEO of Brainy Betty (www.brainybetty.com).

Dr. Anthony Campolo, Professor of Sociology, Eastern College, St. Davids, Pennsylvania, shares the results of a survey where 50 people 95 years and older were asked: “If you could live your life over what would you do differently?” The answers surprised me. These old folks said that if they could live their lives over they would…

1. Reflect more.

These seniors said they would take the time to think about what was going on and live their lives along well-thought-out priorities. They would contemplate the meaning of life, family, work and much more.

2. Risk more.

These wonderful aged human beings said they would have taken more chances in life. If they could re-live their lives they wouldn’t be so scared to take risks. They would have developed more courage to venture out of their comfort zones.

3. Do things that would outlast them.

They wanted to know that their lives counted for something, that long after they left this world, somehow their impact would live on. We all can learn something from these people about setting goals.

Let’s take a moment to consider what they said as you set the course for your life.

To Having It All,

John

Brain, Consciousness and the Mind

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!

The Power of Your Intentions

Hi Friends,

How powerful are your intentions? Well, according to some of the latest research they are very powerful and can have a significant effect on your life and results when you learn the right process for setting your intentions and connecting with the infinite intelligence that governs all of life.

We are finding scientific evidence beyond a shadow of a doubt that we are in fact creating our own reality and results, and the whole process begins with your conscious and unconscious thoughts.

For years I have been studying and applying the best that science has to offer us and here is a great way for you to apply some of what I have learned to manifest whatever you desire.

Upon waking from sleep, sit quietly with your eyes closed. First begin with a few deep breaths to get centered by inhaling in through your nose and exhaling through your nose 5-10 times. As you do this, release all tension and thought as you relax into an alpha brain wave frequency. The alpha frequency is a lower-frequency brain wave to send your intentions into the quantum field of all possibilities. When we are in an awakened state, we are mostly in a faster brain wave frequency called beta. Beta frequencies are conducive to day to day activities and work but are not the most conducive to manifesting your intentions.

Think of your brain as a radio that can receive and send out signals. When you enter an alpha frequency you are “switching” stations from receiving to sending mode when you focus on a very clear intention. Alpha can also be accessed to receive messages and thoughts from the quantum field, the part of the universe you cannot see with your eyes. If you’ve ever been in the shower and a great idea has popped into your brain, chances are you were in an alpha brain wave state.

Ok, so now that you have the first part down, decide in advance what is your intention. It can be an answer to something you need or a person you want to attract or manifest something like money or a soul mate. Once this choice is made and you are in an alpha state, simply focus on the end result you want and make it as real as possible by imagining that your intention has happened already.

While you are imagining, get totally into the emotional feeling that your intention has already occurred and then let it go. This is the part most people have a hard time with because they want immediate evidence that something is happening. The universe will show you evidence when your belief in the universe’s power matches your intention. In other words, you will see it when you believe it, not the other way around. Believe, and the belief will become your reality.

This is a daily ritual that the best manifestors in the world do everyday and it will change your life.

Here’s to your success. I wish that all your dreams come true!

Why you should be aware of quantum physics

Nobel Prize winning physicists have proven beyond doubt that the physical world is one large sea of energy that flashes into and out of being in billionths of a second, over and over again. This is the world of quantum physics. They have proven that thoughts are what put together and hold together this ever-changing energy field into the “objects” that we see. So why do we see a person instead of a flashing cluster of energy? Think of a movie reel. A movie is a collection of about 24 frames a second. Each frame is separated by a gap. However, because of the speed at which one frame replaces another, our eyes get cheated into thinking that we see a continuous and moving picture.

Think of television. A TV tube is simply a tube with heaps of electrons hitting the screen in a certain way, creating the illusion of form and motion. This is what all objects are anyway. You have 5 physical senses (sight, sound, touch, smell, taste). Each of those senses has a specific spectrum (for example, a dog hears a different range of sound than you do; a snake sees a different spectrum of light than you do; and so on). In other words, your set of senses perceives the sea of energy from a certain limited standpoint and makes up an image from that. It is not complete, nor is it accurate. It is just an interpretation. All of our interpretations are solely based on the “internal map” Of reality that we have, and not the real truth. Our “map” is a result of our personal life’s collective experiences.

Our thoughts are linked to this invisible energy and they determine what the energy forms. Your thoughts literally shift the universe on a particle-by-particle basis to create your physical life. Look around you. Everything you see in our physical world started as an idea, an idea that grew as it was shared and expressed, until it grew enough into a physical object through any number of steps. You literally become what you think about most. Your life becomes what you have imagined and believed in most. The world is literally your mirror, enabling you to experience in the physical plane what you hold as your truth … until you change it.

Quantum physics shows us that the world is not the hard and unchangeable thing it may appear to be. Instead, it is a very fluid place continuously built up using our individual and collective thoughts and states of. What we think is true is really an illusion, almost like a magic trick. Fortunately we have begun to uncover the illusion and most importantly, how to change it.

What is your body made of? Nine Systems including Cardiovascular, Nervous and Skeletal. What are those made up of? Tissues and organs. What are tissues and organs made of? Cells. What are cells made of? Molecules. What are molecules made of? Atoms. What are atoms made of? Sub-atomic particles. What are subatomic particles made of? Energy! You and I are pure energy-light in its most beautiful and intelligent configuration.

Energy that is constantly changing beneath the surface and you control it all with your powerful mind

You are one big stellar and powerful human being.

If you could see yourself under a powerful electron microscope and conduct other experiments on yourself, you will see that you are made up of a cluster of ever-changing energy in the form of electrons, neutrons, photons and so on. And so is everything else around you. Quantum physics tells us that it is the act of observing an object that causes it to be there where and how we observe it. An object does not exist independently of its observer!

So, as you can see, your observation, your attention to something, and your intention, literally creates that thing. This is scientific and proven. Your world is made of spirit, mind and body. Each of those three, spirit, mind and body, has a function that is unique to it and not shared with the other. What you see with your eyes and experience with your body is the physical world, which we shall call Body. Body is an effect, created by a cause. This cause is Thought. Body cannot create. It can only experience and be experienced … that is its unique function. Thought cannot experience … it can only make up, create and interpret. It needs a world of relativity (the physical world, Body) to experience itself. Spirit is All That Is, that which gives Life to Thought and Body. Body has no power to create, although it gives the illusion of power to do so. This illusion is the cause of much frustration. Body is purely an effect and has no power to cause or create. The key with all of this information is how you learn to see the universe differently than you do now so that you can manifest everything you truly desire.

To you having it all,

John
