Have You Ever?

Written by Chris Cade on . Posted in Random Stuff

Let's play a little game. 🙂

It's called "Have You Ever?" and you might remember it from back in school.

There's one twist though…

We're now playing as adults. Not just any adults. We're playing as adults who still have those childhood dreams living deep within our hearts.

Are you ready? 🙂

Have you ever…..

  • Tried something new before and not succeeded?
     
  • Really really wanted something but didn't know how to get it?
     
  • Wished there was an easier way to…

    • Find your soulmate?
    • Enjoy a fulfilling career that you shine in?
    • Maintain an ideal weight and state of health?
    • Or simply feel happier and more peaceful?
Click Here If Your Answer Is 'YES'

At some point in my life, I've experienced all of those things. In some aspects of my life, I still do.

The difference between before and now is that I no longer mistake the icing for the cake. That may not make sense off the bat, so let me explain…

As pleasure-seeking pain-avoiding creatures, we all want to move towards financial abundance, awesome relationships, and peace of mind and heart. We'll also try just about anything to make it happen.

(which is why we all can relate to having not succeeded at a "Have you ever?" goal)

We may try working longer hours, try to "lose" weight (talk about a backwards thing to affirm!), meditating more, whatever it takes to step towards the lives we want to create… and quite honestly… deserve. Yet we can feel frustrated when we don't see the progress we expect in the important aspects of our lives.

This is what I refer to as the "icing." It's all the outer world stuff we seek to manifest. Like icing, it's sweet and yummy!

(at least in my chocoholic sweet-toothed opinion…)

The thing is, success in ANY area of life all comes down to REAL abundance. I define abundance as "freedom," so specifically I'm referring to the experience of truly feeling free. THAT is what success is all about.

Therefore, it's really important to grasp that abundance is not something outside of ourselves that we have to work hard to earn. It's within ourselves. It's the actual cake that we're made of. And to take it even one step deeper…

YOU ARE THE CAKE! 🙂

As humans, we are naturally meant to experience abundance in every aspect of our lives. Thinking that we have to commit blood, sweat and tears to earn our natural inheritance of abundance is just like thinking that we have to prove we're worthy of the kindness, dignity and respect of those around us.

We don't have to prove it. It's our birthright. We just have to recognize the Truth of who we are.

And to help us step more fully into this birthright, my friend Natalie Ledwell is hosting a free "Abundance Now" virtual training workshop where she's going to share with us:

  • Why she believes that most people who watched "The Secret" are unfortunately still stuck where they were years ago
     
  • The single abundance technique Natalie and other wildly successful people like Oprah Winfrey, Richard Branson, Will Smith, Wayne Dyer, Michael Phelps & John Assaraf use to manifest their greatest dreams and desires!
     
  • A step-by-step exercise to help you quantify your "Abundance Rating" and reveal how much abundance you're allowing -or repelling- in your life right now
    (She explains more on this is in the workshop, and why knowing your specific score is so important)
     
  • How to uncover your level of "worthiness" when it comes to love, money and freedom (aka abundance)
     
  • A powerful visualization exercise that enables you to instantly shift into a state of receiving
     
  • And you'll learn the 4 Essential Mindset 'Must Haves' for obtaining a successful, wealthy mindset

If you've felt like you're destined for something bigger, better and more purposeful in your life…

And you haven't been sure how to tap into that and unleash your inner greatness, then you'll want to join one of Natalie's upcoming webinar training sessions.

Here’s My Newest Video For You! :)

Written by Chris Cade on . Posted in Random Stuff

Something I’ve been mentioning for the last few weeks now is finally uploaded to YouTube (and made with Mind Movies 2.0) and ready for you to see…

Although it’s short (and it only took me 15 minutes to make using Mind Movies 2.0), this video exemplifies the qualities and experiences I wish to embody to enable me to continue being of service to you each and every day, in ever increasingly beneficial ways.

People who have watched the video have already commented about how that video is DEFINITELY “me.” They recognize that its beauty is in the simplicity, and that it really does capture the essence of the person I am, and am continuing to become.

You may even find that it feels a lot like YOUR ideal “mind movie“… or the qualities you wish to continue developing more deeply. That’s because deep down, we’re all on a similar path to discover our True nature and live an amazing life full of abundance, empowerment, fulfilling relationships, mystery and wonder, and ultimately the life of our dreams.

Please take a few minutes today to watch it ~ it’s from my heart and gives you insight into who I am and what I’m bringing to the world.

And of course if you like my video, please share it via Facebook, Twitter, or with your friends through email! 🙂

Also, in case this is already on your mind… TODAY is the last day of the exclusive Mind Movies 2.0 launch special where you get the program (that I used to make this video) at half price along with tons of bonuses including the ticket to their live Mind Mastery Summit event featuring John Assaraf, Bob Doyle, Bob Proctor, and other great speakers.

Read This BEFORE You Buy Mind Movies 2.0 (Seriously)

Written by Chris Cade on . Posted in Random Stuff

  Mind Movies 2.0

First of all, I have been a beta tester for Mind Movies 2.0 for a couple of weeks now and I fully endorse it. It truly is as easy as pointing and clicking to create your animated vision board videos (to accelerate and apply the Law of Attraction quickly and easily), and I was able to create my own video in under 15 minutes.

Click Here Now To Do It Yourself

WITH THAT SAID…

Today you’re probably going to hear a LOT about it so I thought I’d share with you my experience about the GOOD AND THE BAD of Mind Movies 2.0 Many people sharing it with you today have never even used the software, so I believe my personal experience as a beta tester will give you some exclusive insider perspective on whether or not it’s a good fit for you…

Note: At the end of my email is a quick bulleted list in case you want to just skim for the good vs. bad highlight summary

The good news… is that it truly is super-easy to make online videos and literally only requires you to be able to point and click. Literally, if you can read this email you can use Mind Movies 2.0 to create your own online videos… it truly is that easy. 🙂

That’s because Mind Movies 2.0 already has a massive library of pictures, pre-written affirmations, and music waiting for you to just stick right into your videos. All you have to do is figure out what you want in your video, and then start clicking away.

Now if you’re like me, THAT’S BOTH GOOD AND BAD…

See, even though I was able to make a video in 15 minutes, that probably won’t be true for you. The reason is because their library of available resources in Mind Movies 2.0 is so huge that it’s really like celebrating holidays or your birthday… so many gifts and fun to be had, that deciding which pictures and affirmations may take you some time.

(or if you’re curious and fun-loving like me, it may a LOT of time, hehe…)

I personally like that because it inspires my creativity – the more pictures and affirmations I see, the more ideas my mind starts generating for how to put it all together. When I’m using Mind Movies 2.0 I feel a lot like a little curious child, just having fun and playing. That also means even though I can and did make a video in 15 minutes, most of mine will take longer as I explore all of what Mind Movies 2.0 has to offer.

Of course the best benefit isn’t just the fun making the videos, it’s when I’m done playing and I have an actual video that I can watch daily that helps reprogram my subconscious mind to align itself with my conscious wants and wishes.

(in other words, manifest my ideal life – spirituality, abundance, amazing relationships, etc)

More good news… is that the first 500 people who purchase Mind Movies 2.0 will also get a free ticket to the live “Mind Mastery World Summit” event featuring John Assaraf, Bob Doyle, and several other amazing speakers! 🙂

Of course the bad news is… that if you’re number 501 you probably won’t get to go (unless somebody else can’t make it).

Now for more BAD NEWS…

Due to the neary decade I spent working in the corporate tech industry, I have real knowledge about what it takes for the Mind Movies 2.0 software to do what it does. Since it’s an online based software, the Mind Movies 2.0 team actually hosts all of the pictures, music, and even your completed videos.

It’s nice that you can actually make a new mind movie from any computer without needing to download anything. 🙂 But that also presents a real problem for their business…

See, the fact that the Mind Movies 2.0 team is only charging a 1-time fee for the software means that over the course of the weeks/months/years, they will actually start to lose money because of all the webhosting fees and ongoing software improvements. Of course their hope is that by showing you how amazing the Mind Movies 2.0 software it is, you’ll not only love it like I do and become a loyal long-term raving fan and customer of theirs, you’ll also want to tell your friends about it.

UNFORTUNATELY, this means that they’re planning to limit the number of people who can get Mind Movies 2.0 at this introductory (and quite low) 1-time-purchase price. Once this intro special is over, they’ve told me that they’re going to start charging an ongoing monthly fee just to use the software.


With that in mind, I’m sure it’s no mystery that my personal recommendation is to get Mind Movies 2.0 -NOW- while it’s still at its lowest price:

http://www.discovermindmovies.com


When you order, you’ll also notice on the order form that they included another great BONUS – you get an entire full month complimentary access to their Subliminal Success Accelerator membership

This is an AMAZING opportunity because their Subliminal Success Accelerator software enables you to constantly play your Mind Movies on the background of your computer in a way that is almost unnoticeable to your conscious mind, and yet your subconscious mind just continues to take in your mind movie every second you’re using your computer.

John Assaraf talked about this in one of the pre-launch videos, and some of his insights really helped me understand why this special technology is so powerful and how to maximize its effectiveness.

The cool thing is that this basically means that the more you’re on your computer, the more you’re reprogramming your subconscious with your new mind movie. And if you’re a workaholic like I am… well, at least this software creates extra silver lining! 😉

Finally, a little bit more BAD NEWS…

The Mind Movies team has already emailed their special “insiders” list of over 200,000 people and invited them to this introductory special. What that means is that the 500 tickets to the “Mind Mastery World Summit” event may already be gone by the time you read this. 🙁 My personal hope is that they find a way to rent a larger event space and can allow more people into the summit, but there’s obviously no guarantees.

In a nutshell, let me summarize the GOOD AND THE BAD from my perspective and experience:

GOOD:

  • Super fast and easy to create your own animated vision boards to manifest your dream life
  • Includes a massive library of pre-written affirmations, inspiring pictures and graphics, and a ton of different music
  • If you’re like me and want to make them even more personally customzied, you can upload your own images (like family, friends, significant others, etc), write your own affirmations, and upload your own music choices
  • Also included is a free month of insider access to their custom-made Subliminal Success Accelerator software and exclusive members only content and additional bonuses
  • And the complimentary “Mind Mastery World Summit” live event ticket is easily worth way MORE than the cost of the Mind Movies 2.0 software

BAD:

  • Only 500 tickets to the Mind Mastery World Summit 🙁
  • After this limited time special intro offer, they’re planning to charge an ongoing maintenance fee in addition to the initial purchase 🙁 🙁
  • YOU MAY GET ADDICTED to Mind Movies 2.0 because of how many resources they offer and how easy it is to make your own videos in just minutes

That last bullet above is sort of tongue-in-cheek…

See, my first mind movie took me a few hours to make, and so did my next couple of ones. I kept having so much fun learning what affirmations, pictures, and music they had, and then adding my own pictures (especially of my son) and writing my own affirmations… I didn’t realize half of my day had disappeared as I got lost in just the sheer enjoyment and exploration of making my videos.

Of course I also consider it a well-spent half day 🙂

After that, I decided to see just how fast I could make my own mind movie, and was able to do it in just 15 minutes. That truly impressed me, to say the least.

(it also took a little while for the software to do its technical video creation magic and transform my commands into the actual video, but I just stepped away for a few minutes while it did that)

Anyway, you’re now armed with a ton of information you probably won’t hear from other people about Mind Movies 2.0 – that’s because I was part of an exclusive small group of beta testers who has had access to the software for a few weeks and wanted to make sure that it actually lived up to all the hype.

(which isn’t actually hype because it’s true)

As you already know, I go through a very LONG process of evaluating which partners and programs I am willing to share with you. I want to ensure that I’m only bringing you the best resources that I personally use (or that I would definitely use if I needed it). In this case, I not only have known the Mind Movies team for a couple of years, I also spent weeks with their version 2.0 software and I feel fully confident in recommending it to you.

I wasn’t planning on doing anything special, but… literally seconds ago after I was done writing this message a FUN IDEA popped into my mind! I’m also going to throw in a little mini fun bonus of my own…

After you get the Mind Movies 2.0 software and make your movie, post it on YouTube and add me as a friend on Facebook. Then I will share your newly created Mind Movie with all of my friends on Facebook and Twitter. 🙂

(that’s 11,712 people who will help hold the energetic intention for your dreams to manifest into reality – how cool is that?!?)

Your Eyes Are Blind. It’s Your _____ That Sees…

Written by Chris Cade on . Posted in Spiritual Development

  John Assaraf

When I was a kid, my Dad shared with me the power of visualization and positive thinking. He told me if I wanted to accomplish something, I could. All I had to do was set my goal, write down the individual steps to go from start to finish, and give it a go.

And though he never mentioned Napoleon Hill and the quote, "Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve," that message was still embedded in my childhood teachings. Rarely can we conceive something without first visualizing it in some way – perhaps as words or as feelings (yes you can ‘visualize’ feelings, even if that feels a bit abstract) – most often as images.

My father also said, "If there’s anything you can’t do, I’ll see what I can do to help you clear that roadblock."

Sometimes those roadblocks were physical obstacles (like I needed to earn more money than I had time to earn, so he loaned me some), and sometimes they were mental obstacles (like when I wanted to quit martial arts because I couldn’t learn ‘Star Form’). Either way, what followed was a life of great success for me. I accomplished more before I was of voting age than many people accomplish in entire lifetimes. A big part of that is the hidden wisdom within my Dad’s approach.

You see, it wasn’t just about positive thinking, visualization, or goal-setting. Whether he was consciously aware of this or not, I was receiving a message that said "If you truly set your heart on something, and you take action, there is a really really good chance it’s going to happen. And if you can’t do it alone, the Universe will send you help."

In my life, help comes in many forms. Sometimes it’s an actual person lending a helping hand, sometimes it’s a message within a story from a brand new friend, and sometimes it’s in the form of an unexpected email that, for some strange reason, I accidentally opened and found a nugget of timely wisdom in.

Whatever it is, help is always around us if we’re open to it.

I actively draw upon many resources to maximize the opportunities for help in my life. I realize that my mind has been "programmed" since birth. In some cases it was positive programming (like "VISUALIZATION WORKS" or "you can achieve your goals") and sometimes it was negative programming (like "There isn’t ‘enough’ in the world"). Whatever it was, I recognize that I’ve been programmed.

And unless I’m able to live totally 100% in the present moment, I’m continuing to both add new "programs" and re-play old ones (regardless of whether or not I want to, or even whether or not they’re helpful to me).

Because of that awareness, whenever a new helpful technology comes around that gives me an opportunity to at least choose the new programs I want to embed within me… I pay attention. Not because I am expecting some sort of rapid transformation and having all my goals be instantly achieved, but rather, because of something deeper… something more meaningful.

For me it’s this sense that every little piece of the puzzle is contributing to my overall unfoldment. It’s not that any single activity is a single answer. It’s that when I integrate many different tools, techniques, meditations, passions, fun, and spiritual practices together, what I find is that each piece contributes a little more towards the life I truly want to live.

So when you’re receiving lots of hints, clues, and feedback pointing to the same thing, just pause for a moment and ask yourself, "Is this something that might be a piece of MY personal transformation puzzle?" If so, then check it out.

… and not because I or anybody else recommends it, but rather, because there’s a part of you that is curious about what opportunities you have to live the life of your dreams. After all…

You never know in what ways the Universe is sending you help. 🙂

If you want to learn a bit more about the science behind why visualization literally rewires the programs in your brain, then click the link below and watch this new interview with John Assaraf (from "The Secret"):

http://www.discovermindmovies.com/john-assaraf.html

I found it quite interesting to get a peek behind the mind of somebody who has studied visualization and quantum physics for over a decade, and who lives and teaches this stuff to bring his dreams directly into reality. One thing he said I found particularly interesting was:

"It’s not your eyes that see. It’s your brain that sees."

The implications of that are HUGE! John also shares an amazing story that makes one thing ABUNDANTLY clear:

We’re never alone…

Okay, I think that might have came across a little bit creepier than I intended… so just watch the video and you’ll understand what I mean! 🙂

New Bob Proctor Mind Mastery Success Video

Written by Chris Cade on . Posted in Free Spiritual Gifts

  Bob Proctor

I used to think that I knew all I ever needed to know about visualization, especially since I’ve been doing it for years and have experienced many amazing successes. Then I watched this video from Bob Proctor (from the movie “The Secret”) and realized that he had a “thing or two” to teach me. 🙂

Click Here Now And Watch It

In this video Bob talks about what visualization is – NOT – what you think it is… but what it really is. He talks about the ORIGINS of visualization… not the historical origins, but really the root of it inside of you.

What he shares makes sense and is something you’ve intuitively done for years, but perhaps never thought of consciously in this way. In many ways, watching this video with Bob reminds me of my relationship with one of my spiritual teachers.

It’s no mystery that we all have limiting stories from our past and that the biggest key to our success is to literally rewrite those stories… to inscribe our lives with new empowering stories.

In my case, once I really committed to taking my spiritual development seriously and doing the difficult work of rewriting those stories, miracles started happening in my life. I didn’t know why they were happening, I only knew they were happening and it was amazing!

When I’d share these experiences with my teacher, she had an uncanny ability to help me see clearly exactly what was going on and why. This level of cognitive awareness has helped me not only transform my life faster and deeper than ever before, it also helps me be of service to you… to be able to share and explain my experiences in more concrete, relatable terms.

What I appreciate about this newest video from Bob Proctor is that he does the exact same thing as it relates to visualization. Bob breaks it down for you into words and stories that just MAKE SENSE. I found his video refreshing because he “keeps it real” as they say – he makes it so easy to understand the ROOT of visualization and why it works in terms that anybody can understand.

Bob helped me gain conscious clarity on things that I had already been unconsciously doing, and the biggest benefit of this is that now I can start doing them CONSCIOUSLY with the new insights he shared. 🙂

Click Here Now And Watch Bob’s Video

Before you watch it though, I’m going to give you a warning…

It’s easy to miss most of the powerful wisdom in this video. In fact, I believe the majority of people will watch it and probably only get about 25% of the available life-changing insights that Bob shares. That’s because a lot of them pass by during the course of the conversation, and most people won’t pause long enough to really ponder what Bob is saying.

So here’s my heartfelt advice to you…

When you watch the video, take notes. Write down any quotes that catch your attention, write down what you feel and think, and just be present and aware with Bob. I recommend watching it twice – once now, and once again later today or tomorrow. The repetition of these insights into your brain will help anchor them in more deeply into yourself… to create new empowering stories.

Basically, whenever Bob is talking in this video he’s usually saying something worth writing down -AND- contemplating deeper. I found myself pausing the video repeatedly just to reflect further on the insights he was sharing… it’s well worth the 10 minutes it takes to watch. 🙂

Impossible Happiness: No arms, no legs… no problem?

Written by Chris Cade on . Posted in Spiritual Development

“I was eight years old, and I did want to end my life. I felt hopeless. Broken. Alone. It’s like it was pointless. There was no point to my life.”

 Nick Vujicic

That quote is from Nick Vujicic – a man with no arms and no legs. More importantly than what he doesn’t have though, I’m interested in the thing he seems to have that eludes many of us: long term happiness.

With that in mind, let’s consider this: If a eight year old boy who wanted to die – because he had no arms and no legs – could find happiness, is it possible that we could as well? If so, what would it take?

I thought long and hard about what I would write to you today. How could I begin to even answer that question? It would take pages, perhaps even a book or series of books. Then I realized… some questions are better answered in a different way. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so what might a video be worth?

So today I have two videos for you that I really want you to take the time to watch. I am sure you will be touched by them, just as I have been. The first is an incredibly inspiring 5-minute video of Nick sharing a bit about his life, as well as showing off a few things he can do. 🙂

http://www.the7secretstohappiness.com/nick

Consider yourself warned, though: if you’re sensitive like I am then it may just bring tears to your eyes. 🙂

And after watching that video, ask yourself… if Nick is capable of that, and he can be happy, what are you capable of? Is happiness possible for you? What about for people you know… for everybody?

Now, the cool thing is Nick was also an actor in an incredibly short spiritual movie. In fact, when you watch the movie you’ll see that he IS the inspiration for the movie, the main star, and again, a reminder of what is possible for each and every one of us.

The Butterfly Circus

Nick truly is an inspiration to me, and I’m sure after you watch the above two videos you’ll see why I watch his videos time and time again. He inspires me to be more than I believe myself to be capable of, and he reminds me that even on my most difficult days, happiness is possible for each and every single one of us.

And just in case you missed it…

On Monday I shared with you some of my thoughts about what keep us from being happy, and I also recommended you watch Natalie Ledwell’s video for 4 specific steps you can use to make significant changes towards living the life of your dreams. In case you missed the link to the video here it is again:

Are You Insane? :)

Written by Chris Cade on . Posted in Free Spiritual Gifts

Okay, so that’s kind of a weird and possibly confrontational way to open a blog post… and it’s also a TRICK question. Here’s why…

“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.”

 Albert Einstein

This quote has been attributed to a LOT of people, whether it be Albert Einstein, Mark Twain, or others. It’s been repeated by thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of people and for good reason…

In a way, we’re all at least a little bit insane! 🙂

We all want changes in our lives, but unfortunately very few of us make the changes we know that we need to make. We want to be happier, wealthier, healthier, wiser, and yet, for some reason we have difficulty making the changes in our lives to do that.

In other words – we keep expecting and wanting change, but we’re not doing the correct things to make lasting change happen. We keep doing the same thing over and over, and that’s what it means to be “insane.” And while it would be easy to criticize ourselves and judge ourselves for not doing what we know we “should” do, the fact of the matter is it probably isn’t your fault.

 Thermometer

That’s because we all have a metaphorical “thermostat” inside of us that tries to keep us within our comfort zones. This thermostat tells us what we can and cannot succeed at, how much love we can allow into our lives, and even how much wealth we can have at any given moment.

But the unfortunate truth is that this “thermostat” program was installed when we were children!

Our family, friends, and teachers told us who we were, and because we were children who didn’t know any better, we believed them and set our thermostat. Now think about that for a minute…

Your ability to succeed now, is in large part, determined by what you were told as a child. And even more challenging is that even though you consciously may want to make changes in your life right now, your thermostat is mostly unconscious, and as a result, no matter how hard you try to make changes at a conscious level, the thermostat brings you back down.

If you’re finding yourself unfulfilled and unhappy, the thermostat will push you to do the things we enjoy and to find solutions to your problems. That sounds like a good thing, until you realize the second part of that picture: If you’re finding yourself too happy, too wealthy, or too fulfilled, the thermostat will make you sabotage yourself. This is why the majority of lottery winners lose their money, and often even go bankrupt.

Even if your thermostat is bringing you up, eventually it will just stop and not let you go any higher. That’s why I intentionally try to help you reprogram your thermostat to go higher and higher… to enable you to achieve all the goals that so far have been difficult to attain.

Most of us aren’t aware of the many ways in which this thermostat is limiting us from taking action and consistently following that path.

It doesn’t have to be that way though. Click the link below to stop the “insanity” and take control of your thermostat. 🙂

There Is No Single Answer, Just Pieces of the Puzzle

Written by Chris Cade on . Posted in Free Spiritual Gifts, Spiritual Development

 There is no single answer to spiritual development

If you’re receiving newsletter from messages from more than one person, then by now you’ve probably heard of “Mind Movies” and you’re likely thinking one of two things:

a) This stuff is awesome! I can’t wait to make my own

or…

b) Would you shut up already about the doggon mind whatever-you-call-ems?

🙂

I’m not going to shove some hype-filled BS down your throat about how these Mind Movies are going to instantly change your life and make you win the lottery just because you visualized it. Instead, I’m just going to share a bit of my own experience.

When I was a kid, my Dad shared with me the power of visualization and of positive thinking. He told me if I wanted to accomplish something, I could. All I had to do was set my goal, write down the individual steps to go from start to finish, and give it a go.

And though he never mentioned Napoleon Hill and the quote, “Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve,” that message was still embedded in my childhood teachings. Rarely can we conceive something without visualizing it in some way – perhaps as words or as feelings (yes you can ‘visualize’ feelings, even if that feels a bit abstract) – perhaps as images.

He also said, “If there’s anything you can’t do, I’ll see what I can do to help you clear that roadblock.”

Sometimes those roadblocks were physical obstacles (like I needed to earn more money than I had time to earn, so he loaned me some), and sometimes they were mental obstacles (like when I wanted to quit martial arts because I couldn’t learn ‘Star Form’). Either way, what followed was a life of great success for me. I accomplished more before I was of voting age than many people accomplish in entire lifetimes. A big part of that is the hidden wisdom within my Dad’s approach.

You see, it wasn’t just about positive thinking, visualization, or goal-setting. Whether he was consciously aware of this or not, I was receiving a message that said “If you truly set your heart on something, and you take action, there is a really really good chance it’s going to happen. And if you can’t do it alone, the Universe will send you help.”

In my life, help comes in many forms. Sometimes it’s an actual person lending a helping hand, sometimes it’s a message within a story from a brand new friend (Hi C.!), and sometimes it’s in the form of a spammy looking email that, for some strange reason, I accidentally opened and found a nugget of timely wisdom in.

Whatever it is, help is always around us if we’re open to it.

I actively draw upon many resources to maximize the opportunities for help in my life. I realize that my mind has been “programmed” since birth. In some cases it was positive programming (like “visualization works” or “you can achieve your goals”) and sometimes it was negative programming (like “There isn’t ‘enough’ in the world”). Whatever it was, I’m beginning to see that I’ve been programmed.

And unless I’m able to live totally 100% in the present moment, I’m continuing to both add new “programs” and re-play old ones.

Because of that awareness, when something helpful comes around, like binaural beats, or Mind Movies, that gives me an opportunity to at least choose the new programs I want to embed within me… I pay attention. Not because I am expecting some sort of rapid transformation and having all my goals be instantly achieved, but rather, because of something deeper… something more meaningful.

For me it’s this sense that every little piece of the puzzle is contributing to my overall unfoldment. It’s not that watching a Mind Movie every day is a single answer. It’s that when I integrate creating my own Mind Movie along with other spiritual practices, along with binaural beats meditations, with concentration meditations, and along with playing with my son (a delightful spiritual practice), and whatever other spiritual experiences unfold for me, what I find is that each piece contributes a little more towards the life I truly want to live.

So when you’re receiving tons of emails all about the same promotion, such as the bazillions of emails about Mind Movies right now, just pause for a moment and ask yourself, “Is this something that might be a piece of MY personal transformation puzzle?” If so, then check it out.

You never know in what ways the Universe is sending you help.

P.S. Just to share a bit of advance information… 🙂 Next week I’ve got my own ‘Inscribe Your Life’ program coming out – and one of the program components *is* a mind movie that I personally made and customized based on the content of my program. I do believe in the approach and the technology, I just view it as a piece of an overall spiritual development strategy rather than a panacea.
