Become The Master Of Your Future

One of the secrets of success is to not work so hard with your physical body; instead, use your mind to work out the details of how to be the person you want to be. Are you motivated to spend 10 minutes a day envisioning the future you want to create for yourself?

By deliberately mentally rehearsing the experience of success in your mind, you can turn aspirations into realities. See yourself free from the old negative habits that have wasted your time, energy, and money. Forget willpower for now and imagine yourself with positive behaviors. See yourself handling any challenging situation that normally triggers your old habits and see yourself using new strategies and doing it with
ease.

Success experts say your imagination is your own personal workshop of the mind. This is particularly true when you want to program yourself towards new habits of success.

Visualize Yourself as the Person You Want to Be with Mental Rehearsal.

Mental rehearsal is the most powerful way to tap into your creative process and overcome old behavior patterns. Mental rehearsal can be used in all areas of your life, from seeing yourself as a non smoker, seeing yourself as the weight and size you want to be, and even seeing yourself as calm during challenging times.

Mental rehearsal is a tool that can help you reduce the effects of stressful situations. Now you will be more resourceful, reducing the possibility of reverting to your old habits. All areas in your life can benefit from imagery. It doesn’t matter what level your goals are on: physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual.

Use visualization to improve your abilities. Because the body follows the mind, if you start seeing yourself in a different light, then your body will follow suit — maybe by not craving the things that hurt you, or by motivating you to exercise more. It’s up to you to experiment. Who knows what miracles you can create in your life by using this
powerful tool?

Counselors and therapists who recommend using mental rehearsal say it is the true key to tap your potential. Their research reveals that all of our skills are learned through the image-making process, whether it’s driving a car, reading a book, or changing a habit.

You use your mind to picture the activity before you actually perform it. Think of it like this: Your mind works like a movie projector, screening an endless reel of memories and scenes of situations both real and imagined. You have the power to direct your movie projector (your mind) to reach your desired goals. Once you imagine something new for yourself, you begin to be flooded with ideas about how to realize that image. All of this will come about when you have allowed yourself to break through your own worst limitation, what you believe are your capabilities.

3 Steps To Manifestation

Do you know how powerful your thoughts really are? Are you fully aware that these thoughts, all 50,000 per day, are singularly the most powerful influences on everything that happens to you in your life and are the reason you have attracted the people you know, the house you live in and the car you drive?

In fact the sum total of everyone’s thoughts is the very thing that shapes everything that exists, everything that has existed, and everything that will ever exist. You may ask then “if this is true then shouldn’t it be possible to bring into existence anything we desire?”

Well the short simple answer is YES!

It is through the power of deliberate thought that we can create. While thought alone does have the power to bring tangible (cars, houses, boats) and intangible (peace, harmony and joy) things into existence often times this is not enough!  Intention, or directed thinking and believing, is enough to create powerful enough thoughts to manifest anything we want but you must also add two other ingredients.

Firstly, your thoughts must be backed by emotion. The more powerful the emotion – the stronger the thought. It is essential to create within you the same feelings that you will have when you actually achieve your desire. You actually do this all the time only in the opposite direction. For example, you think of what you are afraid may happen and all of a sudden you feel frightened, tense and may even start to exhibit some physiological symptoms such as sweating or shaking or just get the shivers. Begin to reverse this method of thinking. Think only of what you do want and conjure up the feelings associated with that. How will it feel to meet and marry that perfect person? How will it feel behind the wheel of that new Mercedes or in the kitchen of that new home?

The second key ingredient of the three is action! It is necessary to be prepared to take some action. This is a key point that many personal development gurus leave out! The action that you need to take will not be strenuous or a toil, it will be enjoyable and feel right to you.

Each of us here on the planet plays their own special role in the complete operation of the Universe. We are all One, interconnected and interdependent. Your desires will almost always come through some form of action and through connection to other people.

Your thoughts do have the power to completely change your life and circumstances. When thoughts are backed by emotion they become an unstoppable force that will carry you to wherever you want to go in life. But you must be willing to take the steps towards your desires when these steps are presented to you. For example thinking and believing you will meet your soul mate will bring you vast opportunities for meeting him/her but you never will if you sit at home all day and do not venture outside! You may find that you begin to get asked to go to places more often or get invited to a place you have never been before. You may even accidentally meet old friends or develop new friendships. This is the Universe setting you on a path to your desires. Take that invitation. Even if it is something you have no desire to do or somewhere you do not want to go, you should accept the invitation. Who knows who you may meet or where you may end up!

So remember, ingredient 1 – thoughts have power. Ingredient 2 – thoughts backed by strong emotion and belief can change the very Universe and create ANYTHING you want. And the lastly ingredient 3 – action is the last key ingredient to bringing about your desires and living the life of your dreams. Now get out there and start to CREATE!

Enhance Your Sixth Sense And Awareness

Here is a technique you can use to enhance your sixth sense and awareness by practicing assimilation and scanning.
Let me ask you, can you sense what the distance between you and a wall feels like 6 feet away? Yes, the distance itself has a certain spatial frequency that registers in your perception. What about 3 feet?
The shorter space feels different then 6 feet, right? What about 600 feet? That feels different too right? Well, those distances are all easily felt because we experience them daily. What about the feeling of 20,000 miles? What about 100 light-years? Most people will “consider” the distance, and give it a quick “wow, that’s far”.. Not good enough. You must assimilate it in the same way you can remember how 3 feet feels. Make sense? Holding your awareness in that mode will shift you in very unique ways.
What you want to do is, let yourself go into non-thought and instead of logicalizing or conceptualizing immensity, *feel* it. Maintain a meditative state, no babbling. Use this exercise to trigger dormancies or neural net pathways in your brain to get more knowing of the bigger picture going on. Try to become conscious of “spatiality”.

Second are these illustrations below. Remember; take your time with this. Don’t race your perception or jump to conceptual dismissal to early, that’s all rationalizing which you don’t want to do prematurely. Let yourself really unwind and start absorbing the size. It’s actually quiet pleasurable.

Earth

Remember, we are essentially microscopic cellular organisms in that blue globe.

Jupiter

Other components of an even larger macrocosm of life.

Sun
Tomorrow, when you see the sun, instead of considering it like you normally do, let yourself take in the fact that it is a Star, and feel the distance between you and it. And because it is one of zillions of others, and is much closer to us than the rest of them, consider the space between it and the stars behind it. Take in the feeling of that distance. Really feel it.


It continues on…

And on…and can become quite dizzying. Ask yourself, why would you become dizzy unless you are having a physical reaction within your nervous system simply by letting yourself feel the spatiality?

There’s a secret right there. The point is, the universe is an absolutely amazing organism, and what you are reflecting on is the body of God, which only a few actually reflect on beyond a few minutes, or beyond looking out at the 2d flat night sky with pin pricks of light in it. to go beyond that usually strains the mind and requires effort. And I assure you the effort is worth it.
And to think, just 500 years ago (?) we used to think the universe orbited around us!

Is this REALLY proof that man can see into the future?

Do some of us avoid tragedy by foreseeing it? Some scientists now believe that the brain really CAN predict events before they happen
future

Professor Dick Bierman sits hunched over his computer in a darkened room. The gentle whirring of machinery can be heard faintly in the background.

He smiles and presses a grubby-looking red button.

In the next room, a patient slips slowly inside a hospital brain scanner. If it wasn’t for the strange smiles and grimaces that flicker across the woman’s face, you could be forgiven for thinking this was just a normal health check.

But this scanner is engaged in one of the most profound paranormal experiments of all time, one that may well prove whether or not it is possible to predict the future.

For the results – released exclusively to the Daily Mail – suggest that ordinary people really do have a sixth sense that can help them ‘see’ the future.

Such amazing studies – if verified – might help explain the predictive powers of mediums and a range of other psychic phenomena such Extra Sensory Perception, deja vu and clairvoyance. On a more mundane level, it may account for ‘gut feelings’ and instinct.

The man behind the experiments is certainly convinced. “We’re satisfied that people can sense the future before it happens,” says Professor Bierman, a psychologist at the University of Amsterdam.

“We’d now like to move on and see what kind of person is particularly good at it.”

And Bierman is not alone: his findings mirror the data gathered by other scientists and paranormal researchers both here and abroad.

Professor Brian Josephson, a Nobel Prize-winning physicist from Cambridge University, says: “So far, the evidence seems compelling. What seems to be happening is that information is coming from the future.

“In fact, it’s not clear in physics why you can’t see the future. In physics, you certainly cannot completely rule out this effect.”

Virtually all the great scientific formulae which explain how the world works allow information to flow backwards and forwards through time – they can work either way, regardless.

Shortly after 9/11, strange stories began circulating about the lucky few who had escaped the outrage.

It transpired that many of the survivors had changed their plans at the last minute after vague feelings of unease.

It was a subtle, gnawing feeling that ‘something’ was not right. Nobody vocalised it but shortly before the attacks, people started altering their plans out of an unspoken instinct.

One woman suffered crippling stomach pain while queuing for one of the ill-fated planes which flew into the World Trade Center.

She made her way to the lavatory only to recover spontaneously. She missed her flight but survived the day. Amid the collective outpouring of grief and horror it was easy to overlook such stories or write them off as coincidences.

But in fact, these kind of stories point to an interesting and deeper truth for those willing to look.

If, for example, fewer people decided to fly on aircraft that subsequently crashed, then that would suggest a subconscious ability to divine the future. Well, strange as it seems, that’s just what happens.

The aircraft which flew into the Twin Towers on 9/11 were unusually empty. All the hijacked planes were carrying only half the usual number of passengers. Perhaps one unusually empty plane could be explained away, but all four?

And it wasn’t just on 9/11 that people subconsciously seemed to avoid disaster. The scientist Ed Cox found that trains ‘destined’ to crash carried far fewer people than they did normally.

Dr Jessica Utts, a statistician at the University of California, found exactly the same bizarre effect.

If it was possible to divine the future, you might expect those at the sharp end, such as pilots, to have the most finely tuned instincts of all. And again, that’s just what you see.

When the Air France Concorde crashed in 2000, it wasn’t long before the colleagues of those killed in the crash spoke about a sense of foreboding that had gripped the crew and flight engineers before the accident.

Speaking anonymously to the French newspaper Le Parisien, one spoke of a ‘morbid expectation of an accident’.

“I had this sense that we were going to bump into the scenery,” he said.

“The atmosphere on the Concorde team for the last few months, if one has the guts to admit it, had been one of morbid expectation of an accident. It was as if I was waiting for something to happen.”

All of these stories suggest that we can pick up premonitions of events that are yet to be.

Although these premonitions are not in glorious Technicolor, they are often emotionally powerful enough for us to act upon them.

In technical parlance it is known as ‘presentiment’ because emotional feelings are being received from the future, not hard facts or information.

The military has long been fascinated by such phenomena. For many years the US military (and latterly the CIA) funded a secretive programme known as Stargate, which set out to investigate premonitions and the ability of mediums to predict the future.

Dr Dean Radin worked on the Stargate programme and became fascinated by the ability of ‘lucky’ soldiers to forecast the future.

These are the ones who survived battles against seemingly impossible odds. Radin became convinced that thoughts and feelings – and occasionally-actual glimpses of the future – could flow backwards in time to guide soldiers.

It helped them make life-saving decisions, often on the basis of a hunch.

He devised an experiment to test these ideas. He hooked up volunteers to a modified lie detector, which measured an electrical current across the surface of the skin.

This current changes when a person reacts to an event such as seeing an extremely violent picture or video. It’s the electrical equivalent of a wince.

Radin showed sexually explicit, violent or soothing images to volunteers in a random sequence determined by computer.

And he soon discovered that people began reacting to the pictures before they saw them. It was unmistakable. They began to ‘wince’ a few seconds before they actually saw the image.

And it happened time and time again, way beyond what chance alone would allow.

So impressive were Radin’s results that Dr Kary Mullis, a Nobel Prizewinning chemist, took an interest. He was hooked up to Radin’s machine and shown the emotionally charged images.

“It’s spooky,” he says “I could see about three seconds into the future. You shouldn’t be able to do that.”

Other researchers from around the world, from Edinburgh University to Cornell in the US, rushed to duplicate Radin’s experiment and improve on it. And they got similar results.

It was soon discovered that gamblers began reacting subconsciously shortly before they won or lost. The same effect was seen in those terrified of animals, moments before they were shown the creatures.

The odds against all of these trials being wrong are literally millions to one against.

Professor Dick Bierman decided to take this work even further. He is a psychologist who has become convinced that time as we understand it is an illusion. He could see no reason why people could not see into the future just as easily as we dip into memories of our past.

He’s in good company. Einstein described the distinction between the past, present and future as ‘a stubbornly persistent illusion’.

To prove Einstein’s point, Bierman looked inside the brains of volunteers using a hospital MRI scanner while he repeated Dr Radin’s experiments.

These scanners show which parts of the brain are active when we do certain tasks or experience specific emotions.

Although extremely complex, and with each analysis taking weeks of computing time, he has run the experiments twice involving more than 20 volunteers.

And the results suggest quite clearly that seemingly ordinary people are capable of sensing the future on a fairly consistent basis. Bierman emphasises that people are receiving feelings from the future rather than specific ‘visions’.

It’s clear, though, that if ordinary people can receive feelings from the future then perhaps the especially gifted may receive visions of things yet to be.

It’s also clear that many paranormal phenomena such as ESP and clairvoyance could have their roots in presentiment.

After all, if you can see a few seconds into the future, why not a few days or even years? And surely if you could look through time, why not across great distances?It’s a concept that ties the mind in knots, unless you’re a physicist.

“I believe that we can ‘sense’ the future,” says the Nobel Prizewinning physicist Brian Josephson.

“We just haven’t yet established the mechanism allowing it to happen.

“People have had so called ‘paranormal’ or ‘transcendental’ experiences along these lines. Bierman’s work is another piece of the jigsaw. The fact that we don’t understand something does not mean that it doesn’t happen.’

If we are all regularly sensing the future or occasionally receiving glimpses of it, as some mediums claim to do, then doesn’t that mean we can change the future and render the ‘prediction’ obsolete?

Or perhaps we were meant to receive the premonition and act upon it? Such paradoxes could go on for ever, providing a rich seam of material for films such as Minority Report – based on a short story of the same name – in which a special police department is able to foresee and prevent crimes before they have even taken place.

Could such science fiction have a grain of truth in it after all? The emerging view, Bierman explains, is that ‘the future has implications for the past’.

“This phenomena allows you to make a decision on the basis of what will happen in the future. Does that restrain our free will? That’s up to the philosophers. I’m far too shallow a person to worry about that.”

The problem with presentiment is that it appears so nebulous that you can’t rely on it to make reliable decisions. That may be the case, but there are plenty of instances where people wished they had listened to their premonitions or feelings of presentiment.

One of the saddest involves the Aberfan disaster. This occurred in 1966 when a coal tip collapsed and swept through a Welsh school killing 144 people, including 116 children. It turned out that 24 people had received premonitions of the tragedy.

One involved a little girl who was killed. She told her mother shortly before she was taken to school: “I dreamed I went to school and there was no school there. Something black had come down all over it.”

So should we listen to our instincts, hunches and dreams? Some experts believe we may already be using them in our everyday lives to a surprising degree.

Dr Jessica Utts at the University of California, who has worked for the US military and CIA as an independent auditor of its paranormal research, believes we are constantly sampling the future and using the knowledge to help us make better decisions.

“I think we’re doing it all the time,” she says. “We’ve looked at the data and it does seem to happen.”

So perhaps the Queen in Through The Looking Glass was right: “It’s a poor sort of memory that only works backwards.”

Practice Seeing the Human Aura

Discover how to see the human aura with as little as five minutes of training. You will find out how people can unwittingly restrict their power to visualize an aura because of their expectations. Discover how with a bit of exercise and perseverance one can expose a totally new world of perception and sensory!

How often have we listened to people discuss auras? This is the energy field that covers the physical body. A lot of folks understand the construct but fewer ever see one. Most people presume that the only one’s that see them are alleged psychics and mediums. What if they were experienced on a more day-to-day basis than anyone imagined? What if everyday people like you and I could see them in as little as five to ten minutes of effort. What if each day people saw them quite frequently, but disregarded them because they believed it was an illusion of the light or that it wasn’t an intense enough visual cue to be an aura?

Here is a method one can use to visualize the basic human aura, and is something that anybody with an unobstructed psyche can accomplish. The initial matter we need to realize is that to begin with one isn’t going to see a dense colorized, luminous field of energy. You are going to see a shadowy milky outline around the head and shoulders about two to three inches off of the body. This outline may even appear somewhat see-through and moderately vague.
We have all seen the 3-D paintings in the mall before. You know the one’s that you’ve got to gaze at, relax your eyes and then suddenly, bam, what was concealed is now visible. Envisioning auras is very much the same formula!

All you need to get going is a willing collaborator and a blank wall.

1. Have your partner stand up against a white wall or dark one. Either one is accept able, however, the plainer the background the easier to see.

2. Stand about seven to nine feet away from the person against the wall. Blink your eyes a couple of times and try and relax them. The object is not to strain by focusing on any specific spot.

3. What you want to do is to concentrate on the person’s head, someplace between the bridge of the nose and the top of their hairline. You want to concentrate your primary vision there but use your peripheral vision to see around the head and shoulders.

If you’ve been able to relax your eyes enough what you will see will be very subtle. At first you might even ignore this as being an illusion of the light or your eyes. What the basic misconception is is that when one sees an aura it’s this mysterious field of energy radiating out four feet from the body with multi-colored textures undulating inside it. This is an unrealistic expectation for the undisciplined mind. Before you ran you had to learn to walk.

To begin with it is perfectly satisfactory to only see a vague white outline. With practice and a crystal clear mind one can improve their outcomes and reap a more detailed sighting of the aura. Be tolerant with yourself. With only a little amount of exercise you will be capable of seeing basic auras around all kinds of living and inanimate objects.

The secret is to not to anticipate too much right away! Unwarranted expectation is usually what ruins the experiences people have. It induces them to either not acknowledge what they’re encountering, or to presume they must not be seeing anything because they are anticipating a more unusual vision. Once again, the key to unlocking this extra sensory vision is having a realistic expectation. These three easy measures could be a beginning towards uncovering a world shrouded from your eyes, and perhaps one wondrous step towards a more magical world!

More on the Human Aura

Handbook Of The Navigator Warning

The information you are about to reveal to yourself should be considered very serious in nature. It will systematically challenge you mentally, emotionally and at times even physically fatigue you. The Higher Balance material is considered one of the most powerful metaphysical and spiritual teachings accessible to mankind. Please proceed with caution, reflect within yourself and determine if you are truly ready for such progress.

If you continue, No doubt you will have reservations believing these statements and assume it is a marketing ploy, you would be somewhat correct in both assumptions, although none the less everything here stated is the truth.

If you are a mere curiosity seeker then stop here for this knowledge is not for you. This material is reaching out to persons, who are searching out a hidden knowledge, have felt a calling within their being their entire life. Have already researched and study numerous religions, philosophies, paranormal, metaphysical and meditation systems and determined them not adequate for what their needs warrant.

They feel an infinity with the Universe that is unshakable. Even words attempting to describe the passion they feel shadow its truest meaning. “The Force, God or The One” are words barely capable of holding their most inner thoughts. They seek not religion, but truth and purpose.

Again I give you this warning. Simply reflecting on the material will shape and change your destiny, do not read forward if you desire to remain in the place that you are now.

In one full moment of reflection regarding the knowledge I propose you will no longer be able to return to the person you are but rather you will begin to become the person you have always desired to be.

Assuming you have decided to move forward with the material you should be prepared and understand that the knowledge will reach into your deeper memories and awaken them. Ancient memories will slowly surface and wrestles with the things you have come to believe. Over time and deep reflection, only then you will see that there are fantastical energies and living consciousness all around you and you will understand that they are accessible to those who can fully understand them.

The first place to begin on your journey is “The Hand Book of the Navigator” This is no ordinary book, and it will not only give you great and wondrous incites but it will lead you to the tools and techniques that will free you from an invisible and unknowable chain that has bound to you in this world. It will lift the veil from that which is hidden from you. Once you have this sight, you will never see things the same way again and you will have truly begun to empower yourself.

I say once more. Be warned, for you cannot un-know what which you have learned.

This knowledge is alive and it is evasive. Withdrawing from those that should not hold it within their mind. It belongs to only a few and it constantly seeks them out to be united.

You are about to learn sacred knowledge that has remained hidden for centuries by monks and mystics throughout the ages. Secrets that many of this realm would prefer to have stayed hidden. Once you understand the nature of the veil and move it to one side the wonders of other worlds will become known to you. How much you will learn and experience will depend on how much your true mind can carry.

Some advice, The slower you read the faster you will move. Contemplate, reflect and internalize the truths it reveals for each is a piece to whole that makes a larger piece. Do not assume anything for assumption can be blinding.

Some may fear that the knowledge, the secrets contained in this book may fall in the wrong hands. Fear not as I have said already it is alive and dances to distraction for the mind that does not belong cannot cradle such things, it simply will spill over.

If these words find themselves to you look within and ask “Am I ready for a journey?” If you hear yes, then step forward with the feet of your mind and look high and far for you leave this world never to see it the same way again once you return. If you hear no then rest this book to the side so another seeker my find it.

The stronger your quest, the greater the defiant will arise in your life and discourage you from setting out upon your journey. I ask you now, how many times have you desired for your awakening, how many times have you let it be taken from your hands freely without a fight?

Trust your own navigator to discern this truth and listen not to the bitter and arrogant who would miss direct you on your path. Listen to your navigator and it will set you free.

Once it is alive within you, seek out the rest of the garden so that your seeds my flourish and grow to feed the navigators that follow behind you.
