Speaker:

And in that authentic moment, that signal,

Speaker:

that intuitive inspired signal comes through,

Speaker:

the voice and the vision on the inside becomes louder than the opinions and

Speaker:

challenges on the outside.

Speaker:

Today is how to use meditation and internal dialogue or affirmation,

Speaker:

to your greatest advantage.

Speaker:

And so if you have something to write with and write on,

Speaker:

that might be wise to have.

Speaker:

I first got introduced to affirmations and meditation in 1972.

Speaker:

And so I'll start with meditation. We'll end up with affirmation.

Speaker:

I was introduced to what is called an alpha meditation in 1972.

Speaker:

And shortly after that, around 1973/74,

Speaker:

I was involved in a Yogi meditation that I received from a female Yogi that I

Speaker:

was trained at.

Speaker:

Then I met Maharishi and I studied TM meditation.

Speaker:

And over the years, many different forms of meditation from various

Speaker:

experts in the field, read many books on it and

Speaker:

from the yogis to the mystics, to the scientist even.

Speaker:

And

Speaker:

I found that many times people were using meditation as an escape,

Speaker:

instead of a tool.

Speaker:

As a dissociation from the challenges of their life and used it as

Speaker:

like a pill,

Speaker:

like a codeine or a pleasure taking system to escape.

Speaker:

And I found that many times people that were escaping with it were not utilizing

Speaker:

it as it could be used. And meditation is very,

Speaker:

very powerful science. It's been around as you know,

Speaker:

for millennium.

Speaker:

And who knows when it originally started,

Speaker:

we typically think of the Buddha meditating under some tree or something,

Speaker:

but it goes way before that.

Speaker:

Probably to the very first individuals on the planet probably sat and

Speaker:

contemplated and meditated. But

Speaker:

I like to think of two basic forms of meditation.

Speaker:

And this you might want to write. One is a passive creature meditation.

Speaker:

And the second one is an active creator meditation.

Speaker:

A passive creature meditation, and an active creator meditation.

Speaker:

The passive creature meditation is when you may

Speaker:

sit in silence. Now you can do all kind of things that you might enhance,

Speaker:

you might put a metronome in place, you might listen to your heartbeat,

Speaker:

you might do it in relative to your breathing,

Speaker:

you might have certain music in the background, and all those are nice,

Speaker:

none of those are in any way, really distracting, they're useful.

Speaker:

But ultimately you're attempting to dissolve the noise in the mind.

Speaker:

The noise that's in the mind that keeps you from being present

Speaker:

are all the judgements, all the impulses and instincts,

Speaker:

infatuation, resentments,

Speaker:

that are preoccupying your mind waiting to be balanced and cleared and

Speaker:

returned to appreciation and love. And so all that noise sits in the mind.

Speaker:

And ultimately meditation is an exercise for integration.

Speaker:

To integrate the pairs of opposites that are in the mind.

Speaker:

When we infatuate with something, we're actually resenting its opposite,

Speaker:

and we resent something, we're infatuating with the opposite.

Speaker:

And these separated components instead of integrated components, make up noise,

Speaker:

facilitation inhibition to the brain.

Speaker:

And all that vies for attention and distracts you,

Speaker:

because anything you infatuate with or resent occupies space and time your mind

Speaker:

and runs you until you actually balance it.

Speaker:

And then your mind is present and you have a signal to noise ratio that's

Speaker:

high, and you become in a sense, in a meditative state.

Speaker:

So meditation was mainly for the sake of integration, more than escape.

Speaker:

See many people, as I said, have this challenge in their life and they go, oh,

Speaker:

I got to go meditate and escape it. And then when they come back,

Speaker:

they're right back in the situation,

Speaker:

instead of cognitively going in there and finding the upsides to what they think

Speaker:

is the downside and neutralizing it and dissolving the noise and living in a

Speaker:

meditative state almost, they're escaping with it. I don't recommend that.

Speaker:

I recommend using meditation as an integrative tool to synthesize and

Speaker:

synchronize the misperceptions of reality that you may be storing in the

Speaker:

so-called subconscious mind and bring your awareness to a super conscious

Speaker:

awareness.

Speaker:

Now the passive creature meditation is where you're passively

Speaker:

receptive to your intuition and ultimately your inspiration

Speaker:

and lucid vision, as you take the things that stimulate you,

Speaker:

which wakens up your beta waves in the brain and those that sedate you,

Speaker:

which knock out and activate your delta waves and bring those into an

Speaker:

equilibrium until you get to a kind of an alpha theta state.

Speaker:

And right at that alpha state, usually you have gamma burst in the brain,

Speaker:

in the electroencephalograph that allow you to let you know you got 'aha',

Speaker:

insight, inspiration, insight, and vision.

Speaker:

The integration of the day and night, the integration of the masculine,

Speaker:

feminine,

Speaker:

the integration of all pairs of opposites is where the meditative state really

Speaker:

is. That's where it's most powerful. Again, you can do breathing,

Speaker:

because when you inhale,

Speaker:

it tends to activate the sympathetic system and you exhale,

Speaker:

it tends to activate the parasympathetic system, day and night,

Speaker:

oxidation reduction. And if you have a perfect one to one ratio breathing,

Speaker:

as some yogis used to do,

Speaker:

you center yourself and bring the day and night into balance,

Speaker:

which then brings your suprachiasmatic nucleus,

Speaker:

which regulates day and night cycles into order and hormones into order and

Speaker:

balances your autonomics and helps you heal.

Speaker:

So meditation without a doubt is a healing tool. But,

Speaker:

you can follow your breathing, you can listen to your heart rate,

Speaker:

you can do all those things I mentioned, a metronome,

Speaker:

but ultimate objective is to get to the point where the noise is calmed down.

Speaker:

You've calmed the ripples on the lake or the ocean you might say,

Speaker:

from the winds of perception. When you're elated,

Speaker:

you warm up the system, you fire yourself up. When you're depressed,

Speaker:

you cool it down.

Speaker:

And that creates a wind in the brain instead of being

Speaker:

have it centered,

Speaker:

where there's no ripples on the pond of the mind as a metaphor.

Speaker:

When you get to a point where you're sitting in silence, quietly,

Speaker:

and either consciously integrating pairs of opposites,

Speaker:

whatever's coming up in the mind, looking for its opposite, centering it,

Speaker:

or just passively waiting,

Speaker:

which will usually calm down the mind through our intuition, homeostatically,

Speaker:

bringing us into homeostasis, balance.

Speaker:

The moment you get to this alpha gamma state,

Speaker:

a 'aha' will come, an insight will come.

Speaker:

And I would recommend that you have a little notepad there so to capture those

Speaker:

moments and to document the visual,

Speaker:

auditory, smell, taste, tactile,

Speaker:

or any sensational modem that allows you to get access to

Speaker:

what comes into the mind.

Speaker:

So you're a passive creature receiving an inner signal

Speaker:

from spontaneous potentials that go on in the brain, that allow you to,

Speaker:

in a sense, see something that you may want to accomplish in your life.

Speaker:

What's interesting is we have, when we're infatuated with something,

Speaker:

when we minimize ourself relative to it,

Speaker:

or resent something and exaggerate ourselves, we're inauthentic.

Speaker:

We're exaggerating or minimizing ourself.

Speaker:

And we want to be loved for who we are,

Speaker:

but we can't be loved for who we are when we're not being who we are.

Speaker:

And so what happens is all of a sudden we're,

Speaker:

we're centered and we're authentic. And in that authentic moment, that signal,

Speaker:

that intuitive inspired signal comes through,

Speaker:

the voice and the vision on the inside becomes louder than the opinions and

Speaker:

challenges on the outside. In that moment, if you capture that,

Speaker:

in where it usually tears of inspiration come, and capture what's there,

Speaker:

that's the most authentic clarity of directing your life by.

Speaker:

I've been using that all these years. It's very powerful.

Speaker:

It's almost like a confirmation you're being authentic and you're being rewarded

Speaker:

in a sense inside your physiology for homeostasis, and you're bringing healing.

Speaker:

You're not undergoing entropy and aging in that moment,

Speaker:

you're in a timeless mind ageless body state. You're very present.

Speaker:

That state passively is the passive creature meditation.

Speaker:

And there's many different ways of doing that and I don't want to say that

Speaker:

anyone is right or wrong. You know,

Speaker:

I've studied various breathing techniques and long inhalation,

Speaker:

short exhalations, short inhalations, longer exhalations, oscillating faster,

Speaker:

slower. There are hundreds of people out there with meditation tools,

Speaker:

and they're all valuable and they all have a place.

Speaker:

I wouldn't get attached to any of them, but I would include and be inclusive,

Speaker:

not exclusive and use them as they're,

Speaker:

if they function in your life at different moments.

Speaker:

But the passive one is simply passive there.

Speaker:

A transcendental meditation is a beautiful way of doing it.

Speaker:

You could use a mantra if you want to transcend the stuff that's coming into

Speaker:

the brain, as long as you're not trying to escape it.

Speaker:

And you're not trying to get addicted to this blissful state and then not ground

Speaker:

yourself in reality and get other productive things done. But in that state,

Speaker:

lucid vision, lucid messages,

Speaker:

lucid feelings come, and I would capture them, get them down on paper.

Speaker:

And that's a passive creature meditation. Now you can be doing that sitting up.

Speaker:

You can be doing that lying down. You can be doing that in a chase lounge.

Speaker:

You can be doing that on an airplane. I've done that every imaginable place.

Speaker:

Really meditation has nothing really, it's not restricted by any posture,

Speaker:

so you don't have to go, oh my God, if I don't have this right posture,

Speaker:

I can't do it.

Speaker:

Your mind has the capacity to go way beyond anything your physical structure's

Speaker:

doing. Those things help. They are useful.

Speaker:

They make it easier possibly, but you don't want to limit to that.

Speaker:

And think 'I can't do it if I can't do those other things',

Speaker:

cause the mind has the capacity to be in any position,

Speaker:

I've done meditations in elevators while I'm moving on an elevator,

Speaker:

and really quick meditations. I've done it sitting in the middle of a,

Speaker:

in a rock concert, the outside world you can transcend.

Speaker:

So don't be caught in about where it is or how it is or the postures and things

Speaker:

like, just your objective is to get present.

Speaker:

Your objective is to just sit silent and let the noise ripples calm

Speaker:

down and get present. And that may take 5 minutes, 10 minutes,

Speaker:

15 minutes, 20 minutes, some take 30 minutes.

Speaker:

Whatever the length of time is, more proficient and use you know,

Speaker:

as you master it, the quicker you are able to get into a transcendent state.

Speaker:

We have what is called the immanent minded state, which are polarized joy,

Speaker:

sorrow, happy, sad, attraction, repulsion, elation, depression.

Speaker:

These are polarities. And then we have a synthesized transcendental state,

Speaker:

which is true grace, true inspiration, true entheos, enthusiasm,

Speaker:

true presence, true certainty. There's lucidity there.

Speaker:

And that's the state that ideally you're waiting to obtain.

Speaker:

Once you get this and once you capture that, you go back into meditation again,

Speaker:

and now what usually comes in is a vision about what you may want to accomplish,

Speaker:

or what you want to do, or what you want to fulfill or complete,

Speaker:

or maybe a new perception on something. It'll be a perception,

Speaker:

some decision or some action that will usually come through.

Speaker:

Because our brain deals with sensory neurons, interneurons and motor neurons,

Speaker:

for perception, decisions, and actions. Whatever comes through,

Speaker:

now you can go into an active meditation where you now go in and you now

Speaker:

take that content that you just perceived and you now

Speaker:

concentrate on that becoming reality. In other words,

Speaker:

if you have a goal or an objective,

Speaker:

you concentrate on every particle of detail about what you imagine it to be.

Speaker:

I imagined myself speaking at the Palladium one time in London,

Speaker:

I even got a video of Houdini who was performing there and took

Speaker:

a picture of that and cut and pasted my picture in there and put the Palladium

Speaker:

behind it.

Speaker:

And then I would imagine myself seeing all the seats and imagine myself

Speaker:

navigating through

Speaker:

the location and seeing the balconies and feeling it. And you know,

Speaker:

your vision is proportionate to the details and your vitality in life is

Speaker:

proportionate to the details.

Speaker:

And the more you can see and create that in your mind's eye,

Speaker:

the more you actually can create that in your reality.

Speaker:

And I call that the active creator meditation. What's interesting is,

Speaker:

I found out if I was,

Speaker:

if you were to take a black background in your mind and just visualize a black

Speaker:

background, and then a white number 1 in the middle of it,

Speaker:

just a white number 1, and you were to try to hold that image, white number 1,

Speaker:

black background, and hold that image in a matter of seven seconds,

Speaker:

in all probability, your mind would be distracted by all the noise in the brain.

Speaker:

And you'd lose contact with that and you'd have to come back to it,

Speaker:

and you'd distract and you'd come back to it. And so most of the time,

Speaker:

all that noise in the brain is preoccupying the mind and dissipating the

Speaker:

concentration, the focus. But if I imagine, if you just imagine this,

Speaker:

imagine you had a little bowl of lemon water,

Speaker:

another bowl of blueberry water, another bowl of, or concentrate,

Speaker:

another one of strawberry concentrate. So you had yellow, blue,

Speaker:

and red or yellow, red, and blue or something, red, yellow, and blue.

Speaker:

And you had these concentrates there.

Speaker:

And then you had another bowl with just plain water.

Speaker:

And now you imagined yourself with a black background and a white number one

Speaker:

there,

Speaker:

and now you take your tongue and you go and dip it into the red strawberry.

Speaker:

And then you go and lick the 1, everywhere, front,

Speaker:

back, everything,

Speaker:

and lick it and paint it with red until the white number 1 is red.

Speaker:

You probably think this is bizarre, but it's a really powerful exercise.

Speaker:

So you take the,

Speaker:

you lick and get strawberry concentrate on you and you lick it

Speaker:

until it's all red.

Speaker:

And then you swish it off and dip it into the water and rinse off your mouth.

Speaker:

And then once that dries,

Speaker:

you then take the yellow and you do the same thing and take all the red and turn

Speaker:

it into yellow, and paint it with yellow lemon.

Speaker:

So you can taste the lemon.

Speaker:

You can see the yellow going over the red after it dries and it's now purely

Speaker:

yellow. And when you do, you dip it into water and you rinse it off,

Speaker:

and then you go into the blueberry and you taste the blueberries,

Speaker:

and then you go and lick the whole thing again with your tongue until the entire

Speaker:

thing after it's dry is now blue. And you'll find out something interesting,

Speaker:

as long as you're concentrating on ever finer detail and moving from one detail

Speaker:

to another, you can keep an image in your mind indefinitely. I mean,

Speaker:

I've seen people do this exercise and we've done a long string of it.

Speaker:

I can have them hold the same image for an hour straight without distraction.

Speaker:

But if you do not have those details, I guarantee within seven seconds,

Speaker:

something will distract you, you won't be able to keep a vision.

Speaker:

So the active creator meditation is focusing on ever finer details and

Speaker:

keeping those details moving from one detail to the next on what it is that you

Speaker:

want to create in your life to create an active creator meditation.

Speaker:

So now you're taking a passive creature meditation, which is an idea,

Speaker:

some goal, some objective that's inspiring to you that you want create,

Speaker:

and then you turn around and actively then focus on all the details.

Speaker:

So in the passive state, you're looking at the details and capturing them.

Speaker:

And the active one you're concentrating on the details,

Speaker:

and you're now enacting them.

Speaker:

Your innermost dominant thought becomes your outermost tangible reality.

Speaker:

And by concentrating ever more finer detail and keeping it in motion,

Speaker:

you'll be able to hold an image.

Speaker:

And the reason why many people don't create in their life as powerfully as they

Speaker:

can, is because they can't hold an image.

Speaker:

They keep being distracted by these noises in the brain, instead of focusing.

Speaker:

That's why I tell people in all my seminars and the

Speaker:

all the programs I do,

Speaker:

how important it is to focus on the highest priority action.

Speaker:

Whatever's highest in your priority is most spontaneously acted upon.

Speaker:

It is the one that has the least noise, is the one that's most lucid and clear.

Speaker:

It's the one that is in the forebrain and activates the forebrain,

Speaker:

which gives inspired vision.

Speaker:

That's why if you're not filling your day with high priority actions,

Speaker:

you're going to be distracted throughout your day.

Speaker:

And all the noise is going to be created and all the emotions coming out of the

Speaker:

amygdala response, the impulses and instincts are going to dominate you.

Speaker:

And the signal to noise ratio is going to be weak,

Speaker:

and you're not going to be able to see the signal of what you're inspired by.

Speaker:

And you're going to get filled up with all the noise and distracted,

Speaker:

and you're going to lower your self worth instead of inspire it.

Speaker:

So the active creator meditation is taking the inspired information that you

Speaker:

received in the passive creature meditation, and taking it,

Speaker:

and now concentrating on what it is.

Speaker:

And that's after you've done the passive one to such a degree that you're lucid

Speaker:

and had tears of inspiration on something you want to create.

Speaker:

If you do that and focus on ever finer detail and keep it in motion,

Speaker:

you can hold an image, literally indefinitely.

Speaker:

And as long as the details are there, if you run out of details,

Speaker:

you're going to start distracting again.

Speaker:

But the second you add more details and keep moving the details.

Speaker:

The master's the one who has an infinite number of details.

Speaker:

They keep focusing on more details.

Speaker:

That's why the executive center in the forebrain is the strategic management

Speaker:

center, it's the strategic planning center.

Speaker:

It has the most associations and most details you could put in there.

Speaker:

In the Breakthrough Experience, one of the things that I talk about,

Speaker:

which is my signature program,

Speaker:

is I not only have the Demartini Method designed to dissolve the noise,

Speaker:

so you're living almost in a meditation state, so you're most lucid,

Speaker:

so you're most clear and you're least distracted,

Speaker:

but also the Value information to make sure you live by priority,

Speaker:

because that is increasing the probability of you being in that state,

Speaker:

most objective, most centered, least noise, and least likely to be distracted.

Speaker:

But also in the Manifestation Formula that I teach in the Breakthrough

Speaker:

Experience,

Speaker:

how to actually focus on ever finer detail and manifest something that's

Speaker:

inspiring, that's authentic inside you,

Speaker:

that you would love to bring to the world. As I said,

Speaker:

your innermost thought becomes your outermost tangible reality.

Speaker:

And your innermost thought is an expression of what you value most,

Speaker:

your highest value.

Speaker:

So the active creator meditation is very powerful,

Speaker:

we could call it creative visualization. I remember years ago,

Speaker:

Shakti Gawain had a book called Creative Visualization,

Speaker:

I had the opportunity to spend time with Shakti many years ago,

Speaker:

but she and I had discussions about this in my own office in Houston many years

Speaker:

ago, and talked about how to get focused on the details

Speaker:

and hold the image of that.

Speaker:

And when you can get it and you can smell it and taste it and feel it,

Speaker:

that's why I put in the lemon and blueberries and stuff,

Speaker:

and you can put some sound in there, the more details you put in there,

Speaker:

the more powerful the creation is. And you can hold your image of what you want.

Speaker:

And whoever holds the image, you know, Phelps, the swimmer,

Speaker:

he did that and held the vision of what he wanted to do with his swimming.

Speaker:

He was master of that and he got to ever finer detail. There's some videos,

Speaker:

interviews on him talking about the details he went through,

Speaker:

the absolute infinite amount of detail, if this happens, what I do,

Speaker:

if this happens, what do I do?

Speaker:

He was ready for anything that happens so he was prepared and he could see it in

Speaker:

his mind's eye. That's the active creator meditation.

Speaker:

Now there's other forms of meditation as I said,

Speaker:

but I like to narrow it down to those two. One's a passive one,

Speaker:

you're receiving information that's authentically inspired

Speaker:

about what you would want to perceive, decide or do in life.

Speaker:

And then the other one is the active creator meditation,

Speaker:

where you're actually manifesting it into the reality.

Speaker:

And that comes now to a topic which we call affirmation.

Speaker:

The term affirmation in the new age world is sort of like a positive statement,

Speaker:

but that's not what it originally meant.

Speaker:

Original idea of it is to make firm in one's mind,

Speaker:

a condition of firmness in one's mind - affirm.

Speaker:

And what an affirmation was, just like they talked about in religious writing's,

Speaker:

firmament, which meant firm mind. A place where the mind was unwavering,

Speaker:

where you had steadiness of mind and the capturing of the divine nature as the

Speaker:

philosophers and theologians would say.

Speaker:

But an affirmation is a statement that is authentic,

Speaker:

that is one lucid, that is congruent with what you value,

Speaker:

that is a checkup from the neck up and reminder of what it is you feel called to

Speaker:

create in the world, that is aligned with, not some fantasy of one sidedness,

Speaker:

not 'I'm always happy, I'm never sad', delusion,

Speaker:

but an affirmation that 'regardless of whether I'm supported or challenged,

Speaker:

whether things are going easy or difficult,

Speaker:

I know that both of them are feedback mechanisms from my authentic path',

Speaker:

you're creating a statement which is a principle that you know if you live your

Speaker:

life by it, it's solid and it's firm and it's congruent with what you value.

Speaker:

And it's not polarized as a fantasy. It's not an impulse that you seek.

Speaker:

It's not an instinct that you're trying to avoid.

Speaker:

It's something you know inside you feel destined to create.

Speaker:

Your innermost dominant thought is your highest value.

Speaker:

When you set affirmations that are congruent and aligned fluently with the

Speaker:

highest values, non polarized, highly balanced, highest values,

Speaker:

where you've mitigated the risks in your mind and you're present with the

Speaker:

actions that it takes to achieve something, those statements,

Speaker:

those concise reminders, checkups from the neck ups,

Speaker:

are great tools to take as an active creator meditation to

Speaker:

add to the power of creating it.

Speaker:

Because now you're taking your visual and now you're putting your audio matching

Speaker:

it. So whatever that visual image is, maybe say speaking at the Palladium,

Speaker:

'I am speaking at the Palladium.

Speaker:

I am inspiring 2000 people with my messages from my heart.' You're making

Speaker:

a statement about what you're really inspired and committed to that your life

Speaker:

shows evidence spontaneously towards that shows up in the active and the passive

Speaker:

vision, the active meditation.

Speaker:

And this is an affirmation that's congruent with that. If you do that,

Speaker:

you're going to increase the probability of having the manifestation.

Speaker:

So affirmations are not to be just put in a polarized fashion.

Speaker:

'I'm always happy. I'm never sad.' 'I am kind,

Speaker:

I'm never cruel.' These are polarizations that are unobtainable.

Speaker:

As the Buddha says,

Speaker:

the desire for that which is unobtainable and the desire to avoid that which is

Speaker:

unavoidable is the source of human suffering.

Speaker:

So anytime you try to take a polarization and try to only get one side and not

Speaker:

both sides of life, you're going to have self defeat.

Speaker:

It's like trying to get a one sided magnet. Not going to happen.

Speaker:

It's like trying to get a yin yang symbol without the yang or the yin,

Speaker:

you need both. So when you actually make a statement, an affirmation,

Speaker:

you can never have certainty in that statement unless it's balanced.

Speaker:

If I said to you, 'You're always nice, you're never mean. You're always kind,

Speaker:

you're never cruel.' Your own BS meter would go off and your intuition would be

Speaker:

thinking of when you're mean and when you're not so nice.

Speaker:

And if I said 'You're always mean, you're never nice. You're always cruel,

Speaker:

you're never kind.' Your BS meter would go off and maybe start thinking about

Speaker:

when you were nice. But if I say 'Sometimes you're

Speaker:

Sometimes you're kind, sometimes you're cruel.

Speaker:

Sometimes your own kindness is cruel to somebody else.

Speaker:

And sometimes your meanness is nice to somebody else.' And you put the two

Speaker:

together, you immediately go, 'Yep. That's true.

Speaker:

I have both sides.' So don't set up an affirmation that's polarized to one side,

Speaker:

that's not congruent with what you truly value that you don't,

Speaker:

you want to make sure that you have a spontaneous effort and action,

Speaker:

moving in that direction to prove that you're committed to that.

Speaker:

Not some fantasy whim because you've seen somebody that you envy and you try to

Speaker:

imitate them and be second at somebody else instead of being first at you,

Speaker:

but something that's truly authentic to you and define that.

Speaker:

Maybe you write it out clearly until you go bang, that's it,

Speaker:

till it brings a tear the eye.

Speaker:

And it matches what you saw in the creature meditation

Speaker:

now visualizing in your active creator meditation.

Speaker:

And you're holding that image and you're affirming it in your mind's eye.

Speaker:

And if you take the affirmation and you take the visualization and you have the

Speaker:

inner most dominant thought, until you get tears of inspiration,

Speaker:

when you get a tear of authenticity, it's a great guide that you're on track.

Speaker:

In that state,

Speaker:

your body will feel something and you'll be yearning to spontaneously

Speaker:

take actions on the objective.

Speaker:

When you're not having a spontaneous yearning to act,

Speaker:

there's something that's a fantasy or something that's not high in your values.

Speaker:

And if you need external motivation,

Speaker:

if some form of extrinsic motivation to get you to take action on what you say

Speaker:

you want, and what you're visualizing, it's not important.

Speaker:

Don't waste your time on things that aren't the most important.

Speaker:

Prioritize your life. If you prioritize your actions, prioritize your thoughts,

Speaker:

prioritize the things you do,

Speaker:

you increase the probably of having a stronger signal to noise ratio,

Speaker:

less noise, easier to meditate, easier to affirm,

Speaker:

because you're now living authentically.

Speaker:

So that's basically the summary of having a meditation

Speaker:

practice and also an affirmation practice.

Speaker:

They can be woven together in a dovetailed fashion.

Speaker:

Those have been something that I've been involved in for, since 72.

Speaker:

Nearly 50 years, since November will be 50 years since I'd started.

Speaker:

And definitely a valuable tool in your life.

Speaker:

Some of the greatest athletes, greatest singer songwriters,

Speaker:

they see things in their mind's eye in these passive and active states,

Speaker:

and then create them into reality. So we all have this,

Speaker:

whether we want to call it under a meditative state,

Speaker:

or we just call it contemplation or whatever the names are,

Speaker:

we're all doing this.

Speaker:

We might as well do it cognitively and consciously and use it wisely. So again,

Speaker:

passive creature meditation, active creator meditation,

Speaker:

make sure they're congruent, make sure they're inspired.

Speaker:

Make sure that you've transcended the emotions that are sitting there and get

Speaker:

into transcendental feelings and allow yourself to go and create.

Speaker:

You're a master creator in reality. To help you,

Speaker:

I have a program called the Breakthrough Experience,

Speaker:

and I hope that you will join me on this because this is where I can get to

Speaker:

actually work with individuals. I love helping people.

Speaker:

I would love to help you actually master these skills,

Speaker:

master your mind and your life with all types of proven skills in here. Now,

Speaker:

I have my Demartini Method,

Speaker:

which is the way to dissolve all the emotional noise in the brain.

Speaker:

I've got the prioritization value systems to get it onto priority,

Speaker:

where you have the most lucid visions and you get at the most alpha states.

Speaker:

I also have the Manifestation Formula on how to manifest things and where we go

Speaker:

through these different steps and we can use these meditations.

Speaker:

And we also go in there and how to own the traits of the greats.

Speaker:

Because what we do is we go through and we see people that we envy and we

Speaker:

imitate and we try to be somebody we're not and we inject values into our life

Speaker:

and cloud the clarity of what our mission is and try to be somebody we're not.

Speaker:

And being second at somebody else is not as powerful as being first at being

Speaker:

you. So in the Breakthrough Experience,

Speaker:

I show you how to transform your life in from being a passive person

Speaker:

into an active creator of what you want in life. So you can see life on the way,

Speaker:

not in the way, and you can master your destiny.

Speaker:

You can be a victim of your history or a master of your destiny,

Speaker:

the Breakthrough Experience is for people who want to master their destiny.

Speaker:

It's not a rah rah session, standing on chairs and listening music.

Speaker:

It's a very precise, scientific way of helping you master your life.

Speaker:

I've been doing this and working on this and developing this program much of,

Speaker:

I've presented it 1147 times in many, many countries around the world,

Speaker:

a hundred thousand plus students.

Speaker:

And I'm certain that it can be of transformation in your life.

Speaker:

So please take advantage of that. I'd really love to help you with this.

Speaker:

I'd love to help you obtain what I've been blessed to obtain in my life by

Speaker:

teaching you these tools and methods that are ones that have taken me from

Speaker:

living in a tent when I was a teenager to living on the most amazing life today.

Speaker:

So I'll see you at the Breakthrough Experience. Thank you for joining me.

Speaker:

I'll see you also next week.

Speaker:

Please take advantage of what I just shared with you and try it out.
