Luna nueva en escorpión este 30 de octubre 2016.

30 Octubre: Luna Nueva en Escorpio

La energía de la próxima Luna Nueva en Escorpio del día 30 octubre, 17:38 UT, nos anima a movernos lejos de nuestra zona de confort y dar la bienvenida a nuevas formas de vivir, sanar y transformar. Un nuevo ciclo lunar que nos ayuda a agregar claridad de objetivo y profundidad a nuestra vida.

Es un momento para dar un buen vistazo a lo que hayamos elegido para barrer debajo de la alfombra. Tomarnos tiempo para entender los motivos de otros puede enriquecer nuestros sentimientos de intimidad, perdón y sentido de significado. Poderosos nuevos conocimientos sobre nosotros mismos y las relaciones pueden ocurrir ahora.

la semana es de alto voltaje… Aviso para navegantes inconscientes: Será mejor ir con cautela y no pisar demasiado el acelerador. Si la senda del Sol por Escorpio ya tiene sus dosis de riesgo, sumadle la entrada de Mercurio al mismo signo el día 24. Mercurio en Escorpio nos vuelve un poco paranoides, desconfiados y obsesivos, (aunque también centrados y sagaces),

Mercurio en Escorpio está jugando por amor en especias. Durante este tránsito, Mercurio se vuelve grande en las conversaciones seductoras. El misterioso puede ser atributo ahora, pero eso no significa que debamos ser tan difíciles de alcanzar, que nadie puede levantar el pestillo en nuestra cámara de los secretos.

La gira de Mercurio en Escorpio nos ayuda desbloquear alianzas íntimas y duraderas, con gente a la que podemos confiar realmente.Su influencia tiene una intensidad similar a la de un láser, lo que puede ayudarnos a aprender algo rápidamente y por otro lado, hacer que nos encontremos obsesionados con temas o personas. Revisemos nuestra carta astral para saber cuál área de nuestra vida este paso de Mercurio está afectando para poder tomar las mejores decisiones. Este tránsito es propicio para la meditación y la contemplación.

El plato fuerte, sin embargo, llega el fin de semana. La cuadratura de Marte exaltado en Capricornio al revolucionario Urano en Aries advierte de riesgo de accidentes. No es un sábado para hacer el cabra y confiarse, ni para declararle la guerra a nadie. Mejor tratar de mantener la calma, ir con precaución y no pecar de temerarios. Las locuras es mejor dejarlas para otro momento más tranquilo. Y no descartes encontrar peleas no buscadas cuando Marte está en todo su apogeo y Urano prende la mecha… Haz del adagio Make Love, Not War, tu mantra personal y grábatelo a fuego en la cabeza.

El domingo viene marcado por dos conjunciones importantes. La primera de ellas es la de Venus y Saturno en Sagitario y aunque puede sentirse como un jarro de agua fría si lo que buscábamos era la cara más lúdica del amor, también nos ayudará a definir compromisos. La segunda de ellas, es la unión de Sol y Luna a 7º 44´. La Luna Nueva en Escorpio da comienzo a un nuevo mes lunar en el que tendremos oportunidad de cambiar la vibración y resetear nuestras vidas, pero como siempre, lo veremos con calma en el post de la Luna Nueva ya para el fin de semana 😉

!Activa tu GPS! con Julio Bevione.

27 Oct

“En el mundo podemos confirmar lo que llevamos dentro. Si estamos en paz, veremos el cielo y si estamos desordenados internamente, todo será caos. Esa es la elección más importante que tenemos que hacer como seres humanos. ¿Quiero vivir en el cielo o en el infierno? Primero lo creo en mí y luego lo reflejo en mi mundo.”

Así es como Bevione presenta su nueva mirada sobre la vida espiritual.

Es comunicador y autor de once libros de temáticas espirituales. Nació en Villa Santa Rosa, Córdoba, Argentina, en 1972 y desde 1997 radica en Estados Unidos, actualmente en la ciudad de Nueva York.

Aunque nunca hubo un episodio que marcara su búsqueda, asegura que desde siempre tuvo un deseo de respuestas del comportamiento humano, la búsqueda de la felicidad y la paz interior.

“No he tenido ninguna experiencia mística ni epifanía, sólo constantes momentos de ‘darme cuenta’, de romper mis moldes mentales y ver más allá de lo que pensaba que podía ver”, asegura

Bevione se ha dedicado a compartir sus ideas que ayudan a encontrar entendimiento y paz interior. Herramientas sencillas para que las personas inicien un proceso de autoconocimiento y descubrimiento espiritual. Un claro mensaje de cómo vivir una vida más fácil, simple y abundante.

Con su trabajo, guía a las personas para que identifiquen y purifiquen sus miedos y pensamientos limitantes, invitando a establecer relaciones más amorosas y a vivir con libertad, mayor consciencia y compromiso.

Es autor de once libros: “Vivir en La Zona”, “52 semanas para Vivir en La Zona”, “¡Qué maravilla!, Mis primeros pasos en la espiritualidad” junto a Sebastián Carignano (género infantil), “Abundancia, vivir sin miedos”, “Aceptación, vivir en paz”, “Relaciones, vivir en armonía”, “Silencio, Vivir En El Espíritu”, estos últimos como parte de la colección “En La Zona”, así como “Respira… y Sal de tu Crisis”, “Espiritualidad, para una vida más fácil, simple y abundante”, “La vida en 5 minutos”. Su más reciente es “!Activa Tu GPS!”. Todos disponibles en papel, en formato digital y audiolibro.

Bevione se caracteriza por el contacto directo con el público en conferencias multitudinarias en ciudades de Latinoamérica y Estados Unidos, así como sus Spiritual Boot Camp, retiros de 3 días que realiza en diferentes puntos del continente, donde grupos reducidos de asistentes son guiados personalmente.

Tanto en sus libros, columnas, segmentos y seminarios, personas de las más variadas vertientes religiosas, sociales y generacionales encuentran respuestas comprensibles a sus interrogantes más profundas, además de recibir un entrenamiento que les permite crear una nueva realidad en sus vidas. Bevione pertenece a una generación dispuesta a trascender cualquier rito, religión o filosofía en particular, para que cada ser humano descubra su propio camino hacia el encuentro consigo mismo y su conexión con una fuerza superior.

“Más que tener respuestas, les tengo preguntas para los asistentes. Es necesario que nos hagamos preguntas más profundas, que nos cuestionemos lo que nos pasa, porque esas preguntas son las que nos van a mostrar esa otra verdad que está escondida detrás de cada situación y de cada ser humano… No es lo que sucede lo que impacta en nuestra vida, sino lo que hacemos con ello.”

066000467b

Nuestra presencia en el mundo tiene un propósito, y hasta que no lo encarnemos, el alma seguirá impulsándonos a descubrirlo.
Los seres humanos, después de haber insistido en tomar decisiones usando solo la razón, comenzamos a despertar la inteligencia ligada al corazón y a nuestra alma. Esto se llama «inteligencia espiritual».
El éxito, como realización personal, está abierto a las personas que en sus decisiones, consciente o inconscientemente, incluyeron la sabiduría de su alma, que es la única capaz de transcender los conceptos tan extremos de lo bueno y lo malo, de las aparentes carencias y los límites que creamos tener, para encontrar un camino posible con nuestros propios recursos, la mayoría de ellos internos.
El alma es tu GPS, úsalo para alcanzar la felicidad

Use This Exercise To Review Your Life Choices.

24 Oct

“The biggest advances are not made by being a great teacher; they are made by being a great student.”

— Gary r. Renard, The Disappearance of the Universe

Sometimes this school called Earth can be a daunting destination and the lessons put in front of you can be staggering. The most difficult thing to do when presented with challenges is to react with love on a consistent, daily basis, regardless of what life is putting before you. Choosing love in these situations may seem counterintuitive, painful, or even impossible – but this is your reason for returning to our school called Earth.

I just had an amazing encounter at a demonstration in Dallas, Texas that reminded me just why I was guided to write The Power of Love.

After a demonstration where my Spirit friends were especially forthcoming with loving and healing messages, a woman came up to me and said, “I want to say thank you – you’re the reason I’m here today!” She went on to explain her situation, and reminded me of a time, over 25 years ago, when I had met her parents.

Her mother and father had come to me, devastated after the loss of their young daughter in a tragic accident. I brought the child through and could clearly see her holding out a doll to her mother. “Please tell her to give this to my sister.” she said. When I shared that message her mother exclaimed, “That can’t happen. Michelle was an only child, and I will never have another – I can never, ever, risk feeling this pain again.” The young girl in the Spirit world shook her head, and pleadingly held out the doll. “She said don’t be afraid, please try again – she will always be there to protect the baby.” I explained to the grieving parents. I begged them to trust the power of love, and to try to have another child.

I never knew if they took my advice until the young woman in Dallas introduced herself. She was the child that I had encouraged this couple to have! Not only had she brought joy and healing to her parents, but she had grown up to be a teacher and was sharing the ripple effect of love with the children in her classroom every single day.

Having the faith to choose love isn’t always easy. This exercise will help you to see the effects of decisions you have made, and reinforce the impact that going down the path of love has on your life, and the lives of everyone you touch.

Exercise: The Ripple Effect of Love

loves-ripple-effect-judi-forney

In your mind’s eye, visualize two giant screens side by side. On the left screen is a timeline of your life arranged in years and decades. Choose a year or decade to observe. Very quickly, a few significant situations will begin to stand out. See them, live them, and be them. As you do this, you will find that there are one or two particular events that are emotionally prominent. With an objective eye, immerse your- self in the particular circumstances surrounding the event and become aware of the various choices and decisions you made at that time.

Now, turn to the right screen and observe the outcomes resulting from the choices you made—for not only the other recipients but yourself as well. Clearly see the energy you created with your actions and the rippling effect caused by your words and deeds. As these memories and events come into clarity, begin to see the sources of and reasons for the decisions that you made. Become completely aware of the motives, insights, and reasoning that were involved. While doing this, it is important to be as objective as possible, remembering that you are now at a very different place and time in your life. You also might find that nothing has changed very significantly in your decision-making process and you might make the same choices again, given the same circumstances.

Imagine the light of love entering both screens until they are both clear. Realize that the power of love can expand your life choices and extend to all those within your sphere. All choices are based on either fear or love. Become more aware than ever of which one has been the most frequent cause of your decisions. See how it has shaped the life you now live. From this moment on, you know you want a life full of love, so begin to choose love as the cause of your choices. As you express love in all you do and are, you will see its ripples expanding beyond your everyday existence.

Algunos consejos para reconocer el abuso infantil.

21 Oct

 

Dentro del tema del abuso sexual, existe varios mitos, entre los que se encuentra “mis hijos nunca han sido abusados ni lo serán”, éste es el primer problema con el que nos encontraremos a la hora de detectar un posible abuso, ya que nos cerramos a escuchar o ver las señales que nos podrían enviar nuestros pequeños en relación a este tema. No podemos creer saberlo todo sobre nuestros hijos, ya que si ha sido abusado sexualmente, muy rara vez el menor se atreverá a relatar lo sucedido. El niño suele callar por vergüenza al mismo tema sexual, por miedo a represalias por parte del abusador o simplemente por temor a que nadie les crea.

Detallo algunos de los muchos indicadores tanto a nivel físico cómo psicológico, que nos pueden servir como luces de alerta para observar más de cerca la conducta de nuestros hijos:

Indicadores físicos:
-Lesiones, desgarros, sangrado, inflamación, mucosa vaginal excesiva, cicatrices en la zona genital y/o anal.
-Irritación en las tetillas, dilatación anal, infección urinaria, repentina dificultad para caminar o sentarse.
-Encopresis (Trastorno intestinal de origen nervioso, por el cual niño tiene incontinencia fecal)

Indicadores psicológicos:
-Llanto permanente, fuerte rechazo frente a una persona específica.
-Trastornos del sueño, no logran conciliar el sueño por completo, tienen pesadillas o terrores nocturnos, temor a estar solos.
-Depresión, juegos inapropiados para su edad en tonos sexuales o dibujos de carácter sexual.
-Ponerse demasiada ropa, dos o tres pantalones. Esto se hace con la finalidad de dificultar el abuso.Foto blanco y negro de niño que simboliza la detención del abuso

Es de vital importancia que los padres pongamos atención al lenguaje no verbal de nuestros hijos, a sus juegos, sus expresiones, sus dibujos. La vida hoy corre muy deprisa, con altas exigencias y en muchas casas ambos padres deben trabajar estando ausentes la mayor parte del día. De una manera u otra debemos asegurarnos de encontrar el minuto para conversar con nuestros niños, que sientan nuestro interés por lo que nos relatan, escucharles con atención. Niños pequeños, medianos o grandes, necesitan sentir que nos interesamos por lo que les ocurre y que haremos lo que esté a nuestro alcance para protegerlos.

 

Otros comportamientos que posiblemente observe en un niño o adolescente:

-Tiene pesadillas u otros problemas para dormir sin ninguna explicación.
-Parece distraído o distante en diferentes momentos.
Presenta un cambio repentino en sus hábitos alimenticios.
-Se rehúsa a comer.
-Pierde o aumenta radicalmente su apetito.
-Tiene problemas para tragar.
-Presenta cambios repentinos en su estado de ánimo: furia, miedo, inseguridad o retraimiento
-Da “señales” que dan pie a iniciar una conversación sobre temas sexuales.
-Desarrolla un miedo inusual o nuevo en relación con ciertos lugares o personas.
-Se rehúsa a hablar acerca de un secreto compartido con un adulto o niño mayor.
-Escribe, dibuja, juega o sueña con imágenes atemorizantes o sexuales.
-Un niño escribiendo o dibujando en una hoja de papel.
-Habla de un nuevo amigo mayor.
-De repente, tiene dinero, juguetes u otros regalos sin motivo alguno.
-Piensa que es repulsivo(a), sucio(a) o malo(a), o considera que su cuerpo lo es.
-Exhibe conocimiento, lenguaje o comportamientos sexuales semejantes a los de un adulto.

4 Steps To Making Better Decisions EVERY Time.

18 Oct

Every moment of every day, we’re bombarded by a freight train of opportunities, people, ideas, invitations, ads, conversations, and asks screaming at us. With every one, we’ve got to make a decision. Yes, no, maybe, kinda, later, now, bigger, smaller, hotter, colder, cuter, higher paying, less traveling? Taxi, subway, bus, walk, or ride? Single-origin, high-altitude organic coffee with lovingly handpicked virgin hemp milk, half-caf macchiato with 2 percent, or slam a double expresso? By the time we hit breakfast, we’re beyond overwhelmed!

Then come the real decisions, the ones that actually matter. A handful of these choices, may actually be more life-and-death, or at least happy life and slow meaningless decline into death. Little things like who gets our attention, when do they get it, and why? What gets the nod, what gets turned down, and how much will someone need to give us – in money, love, attention, or a sense of purpose – to make it worth a yes! What projects, jobs, activities, and relationships do we welcome, and what do we say no to? How much suffering will we endure, and why, before changing direction?

Make the right decisions and the way we contribute to the world ends up filling our Contribution Buckets. Life gets a whole lot better. So do the lives of those we end up dancing with and serving.

Make the wrong decisions, though, and it feels like we get to the end of every crazy busy day but haven’t actually done anything that matters. String that out for weeks, months, and years and boom, we’ve just wasted the better part of our lives.

Thing is, we can’t make good decisions until we know what matters to us. Until we have some sense of what’s important, what we believe, what we value. When we know these things, decisions get a lot easier. Something is either aligned with our values and beliefs, or it’s not. If it’s aligned, it’s a yes. If it’s not, it’s a no.

But how can we know what matters to us?

I’ll share an approach that’s worked well for me.

Write down the things you value most in life. Here are some possible answers, feel free to add your own:

Faith Truth Openness Family Vulnerability Wonder Freedom Equality Fun Peace Integrity Growth Compassion Humility Accountability Security Play Kindness Friends Simplicity Justice Love Trust Flexibility Respect Generosity Mindfulness Money Creativity Courage

Next look at the list and edit it down to your top five, the ones you hold most sacred.

So what do you do with this information? So now you know family matters, or money, or health matters a lot. But how does that information guide your decisions and actions? What if we took it one step further and added a verb to each?

Let’s take the value of “family” as an example. Is the verb you want to attach “provide for my family”? This could mean financially, it could be being present. What if we took the word family and turned it into a sentence? Something like:

“I want to ensure that my wife and daughter will always have a comfortable home; to earn enough money to take care of their needs and provide the best education possible for my daughter; and to be physically and emotionally present, kind, generous, open, and compassionate.”

Now, not only so I know what’s important, but I also know how that information will guide my decisions and actions. Now if I’m presented with an opportunity to invest my time or attention or money in something, I can ask:

Will this move me closer to ensuring a comfortable home for my wife and daughter….?

If yes, I’m in. If no, I’m out. And if I’m weighing two options, I can choose the one that gets me closest. It becomes useful in guiding my everyday decisions and actions.

Step 1: Write down your basic values.

Make your list as long as you like. Pure stream-of-consciousness. Do not do any editing yet.

Step 2: Now circle the five values you feel most strongly about.

Go with your gut. This is not about what you wish your answers were, or what you want others to think; it’s about what they truly are.

Step 3: Look at each of your top five values, and write them into a sentence that gives them context and definition.

Be sure to include a verb. Spend a little time refining these sentences. Then, on a new piece of paper, write all five down.

Step 4: Place that piece of paper somewhere you can see it or reference it whenever you want.

As opportunities come your way throughout the day, ask yourself, “Does saying yes move me closer to what I hold most dear?” If the answer is no, whether it’s checking your e-mail every 10 minutes or taking a new job, just say no. And start to say yes to only what genuinely matters most to you.

The more I think about it, the more it seems we don’t really have a decision-making crisis. We have a self-knowledge crisis. How can we decide who or what to say yes or no to until we know what matters to us? So let’s bypass years of psychotherapy (kidding – many of my closest friends are psychotherapists!) and take a bite out of the self-ignorance apple with a simple question.

Jonathan has spent the last two decades exploring what it means to live a good life. He’s traveled the world, interviewed and learned from Buddhist Lamas to billionaires, research savants to maverick M.D.s and legendary artists to world-shaking entrepreneurs.

Upgrading Your Mind.

12 Oct

by Steve Pavlina
For the upcoming Conscious Mind Workshop, the purpose is to significantly improve the way you manage your mind, so you can turn your mind into a more power ally on your path of growth.

What does this mean? Why does it matter? What will it do for us?

In this article I’ll share some of the practical benefits of improving your mind management skills and some key benefits you can gain. This isn’t a how-to article. It’s an overview of some of the wonderful possibilities to explore.

poder-de-la-mente

Mind Management

Many people identify with their minds, treating their minds as synonymous with themselves. This is problematic when it comes to personal growth because it encourages us to wrap our egos into our mental functioning. When our minds behave poorly, we’ll tend to defend our mistakes instead of diagnosing and solving problems in our thinking.

It’s more effective to see our minds as a resource that we can utilize, train, and manage. Think of your mind as a piece of technology that you own – a combination of hardware and software. This technology is powerful, but you can also improve upon its current functioning.

Our brains are trained by experience, even while still in the womb, so our mental abilities improve as we gain experience – at least up to a point. As we mature and learn to think consciously, we can wield greater control over our mental training and thus our mental performance. We can recognize and diagnose problems in our thinking. We can find better and stronger mental patterns and retrain our old ones. We can effectively become smarter and more capable by using our intelligence to upgrade our intelligence.

If you’ve ever consciously captured a new skill, such as playing a musical instrument, figuring out how to use a new app, or learning to eat a different diet, then you’ve already experienced the benefits of mental upgrading. But have you considered how many other ways you could train your mind to gain abilities and increase performance? Have you tackled some of the most fundamental upgrades that could add tremendous richness to your life?

Let’s consider some of these foundation-level upgrades…

Sleep Mastery

One of the most practical gains from mental development is sleep hacking and its various long-term benefits. If your sleep habits are poor, this can drag down your results almost every day. Who needs that?

When I was 20 years old, I used to sleep in late, often till the afternoon. It was really hard to get myself to wake up at any particular time. I’d get a sluggish start to each day. This dragged down my self-esteem at the time, and I didn’t feel very ambitious. How could I think highly of myself when I had a hard time just getting out of bed?

I made some gradual improvements until my 30s, when I finally made a push to put my sleep habits under my conscious control. I learned how to become an early riser and how to get up right away when the alarm goes off. I built skill in lucid dreaming (staying conscious in my dreams). I explored polyphasic sleep and biphasic sleep. I gained the permanent ability to fall asleep in less than 30 seconds when I want to sleep. My sleep became more efficient, more restful, and more flexible. And I mastered the ability to take restorative naps in less than 20 minutes.

Poor mental management often goes hand-in-hand with poor sleep habits. If you increase the level of control you have over your mind, you can cultivate sleep habits that work for you instead of against you. Since sleep is something you do every day, taking control of this one area can create ongoing positive ripples that last for decades.

Would you want to maintain your current sleep habits for the rest of your life, or would you prefer to upgrade them? If your honest answer is that you’d like an upgrade, I invite you to make the effort to do so. You’ll surely appreciate the long-term payoff.

If you’ve already made some upgrades here, consider the benefits you’ve gained. Doesn’t it feel amazing to wield such control over something so basic and frequent? And doesn’t this encourage you to tackle another upgrade in some other part of your life, knowing that there’s a real payoff to be captured?

Accelerated Learning

We live in an age of constant learning. If you haven’t figured that out yet, you’re surely falling behind.

Not only is it important for us to learn faster, but we also need to be more discerning, choosing the right types of information to learn, so we can maximize our benefits.

I treasure mental hacks that can help me learn faster, retain better, and turn ideas into practical actions. I shun social media because it’s mental junk food. It does me little good to see status updates about people’s meals, pets, and yoga poses. Instead, I cherish my Amazon and Audible accounts and voraciously devour new books. I especially favor books and articles that my most intelligent friends recommend, and these friends tend to avoid social media for similar reasons.

I typically read about 100 books per year (roughly 2 per week), and I’m pretty good at remembering what I’ve read. People have often told me during conversations how they find it remarkable that I can pull so many odd facts and pieces of data from my memory. When I’m really in an immersive research mode, I’ve sometimes read five or more books per week for a while.

Much of what I learned about accelerated learning came to me through a trial-by-fire approach during my early 20s, when I tackled the goal of earning a computer science degree in only three semesters instead of four years. Not only did I successfully earn the degree, but I also picked up a double major (with mathematics being the second degree), and upon graduation I was given an Outstanding Undergraduate Award for being rated by the faculty as the top computer science student that year. I learned numerous simple hacks that helped me learn faster, eliminate educational inefficiencies, and stay motivated. Each semester I kept improving upon my improvements. In my final semester, I took 37 units and even had time to program a four-pack of computer games on the side, which were published the following year. Those games earned enough in royalties to pay for my entire university education and then some. Consequently, I’m a huge fan of accelerated learning techniques because they did wonders for me when I really needed those benefits.

Our bureaucratic educational systems are ridiculously outdated. Fortunately, we don’t have to saddle ourselves with such archaic learning approaches anymore. If we want to zoom ahead, we can do so.

Because these techniques are so beneficial, I incorporate accelerated learning methods into our workshops to help attendees learn faster as well. This is why the workshops are so interactive and not just lecture. Even the lecture parts includes lots of stories because people naturally remember stories better than mere facts and data. When people remember the stories, they remember the key points as well.

If you feel like your mind is sometimes slow and sluggish, you can speed it up. Your mind could be buzzing with a delightful flow of motivation, ideas, and energy each day. If you can increase your ability to absorb quality input, your internal processing will speed up as well, and this in turn will help speed up your creative output. As you learn faster, you’ll be able to create faster as well.

Why do I have an endless supply of creative ideas for fresh articles? Partly this is because I consume a huge amount of quality input, so my mind is frequently discovering new connections between old ideas and new ones. And yet I also retain the ability to keep my mind relaxed and peaceful when I want it to be.

There is so much fascinating knowledge to acquire that will enhance and enrich your life. But you have to rev up this engine and keep it fueled with quality input.

Turning Fear Into Confidence

Most of our fears are irrational. We experience stress, hesitation, anxiety, and nervousness over events that aren’t actually dangerous. These emotions can cause us to hold back when taking action is more advantageous, so we miss opportunities again and again. In the distant past, such mental habits may have helped us survive under harsh conditions. In the modern world, however, they mostly just get in our way.

What could you do if you had more courage? You could enjoy a richer relationship life. You could make significantly more money at work because you’d ask for more raises and promotions, or you’d take more risks as an entrepreneur. You could enjoy a richer lifestyle to be sure.

Many years ago I recognized that I had a fear of public speaking. Why should my mind generate such irrational signals when I find myself in front of an audience (or when only imagining the experience)? This is unintelligent behavior for the modern world.

I decided to upgrade my mental programming to resolve this mental defect. It took me a while to find the right reframes, but eventually I went way beyond my initial goal. This culminated with doing the three-day Conscious Heart Workshop in 2015, which involved speaking off the cuff with no plan, no prepared content, and no notes, including coming up with interactive exercises along the way. I had a great time doing it, and the attendees gave the workshop delightfully positive reviews afterwards. Moreover, I experienced no fear or nervousness before or during the event.

With a series of simple mental transformations, I retrained my mind to stop generating this irrational fear and to replace it with happiness, confidence, and excitement. This one change gives me access to a lifetime of anxiety-free public speaking, whether I prepare content in advance or not. The additional income generation from this outlet made this transformation well worth the time investment, but for me the more important aspect was the personal victory over what had been an embarrassing stumbling block during my youth.

Where are irrational fears holding you back? What if you could train your mind to stop generating fear in such situations and to generate positive motivation, happiness, and excitement instead? Or perhaps you’d prefer to experience serenity, calmness, and inner peace? Imagine what that would do for your life. And realize that this is possible. Many people have already done it. This is a learnable skill. You can indeed train your mind to stop generating irrational fear.

Boosting Your Productivity

Can you get yourself to sit down and do quality, focused work for hours at a time? Can you do this consistently?Do you find it easy to motivate yourself to work? Or do you suffer from procrastination, self-doubt, perfectionism, or other mental maladies?

When you manage your mind well, solid productivity and a strong work ethic are powerful benefits. These benefits cascade into other benefits like increased self-reliance, self-confidence, and self-esteem. Knowing that you have the work ethic to successfully manage any reasonable challenge makes you more tolerant of risks and less fearful of setbacks since you know you can rely on your work ethic to quickly bounce back. This is especially important for entrepreneurs and people whose results depend on high levels of self motivation to move the ball forward.

If you don’t manage your mind well, your productivity will suffer. Bad habits will suck you down. This in turn drags down your confidence, self-reliance, and self-esteem.

Making Good Decisions Efficiently

A key benefit of mental mastery is being able to make good decisions. Many of my readers have told me they get stuck in analysis paralysis when facing big decisions. They keep second-guessing themselves. This is especially common among people who are thinking about starting a business. They have trouble getting something practical up and running because they’re perpetually stuck in the idea stage.

It makes sense to spend some time weighing options to increase the quality of our decisions, but if we do this to excess, life passes us by, and we have nothing to show for our analysis. Analyzing options doesn’t produce results. If your mind keeps thinking itself in circles, you have a mental defect to overcome.

A well-managed mind is decisive but also flexible. It can weigh options quickly and carefully, get into action, and adjust course as needed.

There are many good processes for making decisions. A simple one I often use is a decision matrix. I list reasonable options, score them on several factors, and rank them. I used such a matrix to decide which workshops to do this year. I invited my readers to suggest topics, narrowed the list down to 12 possibilities, and then surveyed my readers to assess interest. I scored each workshop on several factors such as reader appeal and alignment with my knowledge, skills, and experience. I selected the four workshops with the best scores.

Most of the time I just make decisions intuitively because I’ve already spent years studying decision making techniques, so those methods are pretty well internalized now. Consequently, my gut instinct tends to align well with any logical or analytical process I might use.

Some people are too hesitant. Some people are too reckless. Both are symptoms of a weak decision-making process. Fortunately you can train yourself to make quality decisions in a reasonable amount of time, act on them, and adapt as you go. This requires a combination of skills, but they’re all learnable.

When your mind is well-trained, you’ll also enjoy making decisions more, especially important ones. It’s stimulating and rewarding to direct your mind to carefully consider options and make a wise and intelligent choice.

Turning Your Inner Critic Into an Inner Coach

Many people have overly critical self-talk, which usually does them more harm than good. This inner voice can be consciously re-trained to serve as an unwavering ally.

Imagine having a positive and supportive inner coach. This coach is always on your side. This coach keeps searching for opportunities and helps you focus your energy. This coach never gives up.

I’ve worked with a couple of different personal coaches in the past, but I haven’t felt the need for one in many years because my own mind does a pretty good job of coaching me. My inner voice challenges me a lot, but he’s also incredibly supportive and encouraging. When I have a setback, he builds me back up again. When I have a victory, he celebrates with me. When I’ve been coasting for a while, he nudges me to set new goals and get back to the sweet spot of challenge and flow.

It’s so much easier to succeed when you have a strong inner coach that won’t let you give up, get down on yourself, or coast for too long. With some mental training, you can design and unleash your own inner coach, which will help you set goals, overcome obstacles, and more. Think of this coach as your brain’s internal cheerleader.

What About the Time Investment?

Conscious mind management is powerful indeed. Just one shift in a single area of your life can create massive positive ripples that pay off for decades. But what about time investment required to discover, test, and apply all of these hacks?

There is a time investment to be sure. But the time is going to pass anyway. At some point you’ll be 10 years older. At another point you’ll be 20 years older. You can drag your current mental dysfunctions with you into those future decades, or you can perform serious upgrades and find yourself in a far more advantaged position on those future decades. How much do you care about your future self? Someday that future self will be you.

Understand and accept that if you do nothing, you’re going to drag your worst qualities into your future by default, month after month, year after year, decade after decade. In some cases your habits and behaviors will cascade into further downgrades, such as poor health habits impairing your mental functioning and making it harder to focus as you get older.

You can copy my approach and immerse yourself in personal growth for years. Or you can be more casual about it. Either way, you’ll discover some gems and gradually improve. As I shared in the previous article about patterns of success, the good news is that people who strive to grow usually do succeed in the long run.

If you want to make faster progress, I encourage you to train up with me in person, so I can teach you the best mental management tools, strategies, and techniques that I’ve learned thus far. I will of course continue to blog about such topics from time to time, but there’s no substitute for doing immersive deep dives together in the same room with a motivated group of like-minded people. If this appeals you you, I invite you to attend the three-day Conscious Mind Workshop in Las Vegas this month. It’s less than two weeks away: August 19-21, 2016. In terms of the sheer volume, breadth, and depth of material we’ll cover, this will be the most content-rich workshop we’ve ever done.

We’re going to do deep dives into all of the topics I mentioned above – sleep mastery, accelerated learning, turning fear into confidence, productivity, decision making, self coaching – and so much more.

Much of what I’ll share at the workshop has never been mentioned in my blog. If this workshop was turned into a single blog post, it would be about 150,000 words long, which is about 50 times the length of this article. At these workshops you’ll have plenty of opportunity to ask questions too, so we can adapt the solutions to fit your situation.

Most of the time when I run a workshop, I run it only once. I expect that will be the case with this one, and I have no plans or intentions to repeat it. It won’t be filmed or recorded either. Since my articles can stay online indefinitely, I feel there’s something special about creating and sharing an experience that has a singular fixed location in time and space. It’s a way to create a memory that’s unlike any other.

After a workshop I normally like to go out to dinner with people who are interested, so we can continue to discuss the ideas as you’re still processing them. After the last workshop in July, we had group dinners on the Sunday night and Monday night after the workshop, and after the Monday night one, a group of us went for a walk on the Vegas Strip together while Rachelle and I played tour guides. I find it fun and stimulating to connect with such wonderful, vibrant, growth-oriented people. We all share and cross-pollinate even more good ideas that way too.

Even if you only apply a small number of the ideas from the Conscious Mind Workshop, I think you’ll see some powerful benefits. The nice thing about mind hacking is that one change unlocks another, then another, and then another. I think what’s most important about this workshop is the incredible exposure you’ll have to such a tremendous variety of quality ideas, many of which are easy to apply, so before you even go home, you’ll have made numerous upgrades in your thinking patterns.

Don’t settle for sluggish, defective mental software. Upgrading your mindware may not be as easy as upgrading an app on your computer, but it is doable, especially when you have help.
