Updated: Can your teacher teach you what you want to learn?

positive-deviance“The reasonable man adapts himself to the conditions that surround him… The unreasonable man adapts surrounding conditions to himself… All progress depends on the unreasonable man.”

This post was triggered by me reading a few really good articles… Observing myself I was really clear, that although I enjoyed the articles, it never became knowledge, it stayed information.

Words don’t teach. Speaking only talks to the mind… Real teaching happens NOT when you get stuff with your mind… Transformation doesn’t happen in the mind: transformation happens by taking you out of your mind… All that talking keeps you in the mind. Alas…

Growing up I lived in the shadows of my famous father. He was some kind of genius in the area of economics…

As I was dyslexic, and the public opinion of me was that I was a moron and a failure, he took it on himself to tutor me in my schoolwork, so I can succeed.

Vibrational Review: The Sedona Method, The ReleasingFest

sedona method realeasingfestI haven’t written a vibrational review in quite a while…

But… I got an email asking me to promote the ReleasingFest by the Sedona Method… so I am looking at it.

I am looking for warning signs in addition to just measuring truth value, etc.

The first warning sign is the “story”.

All marketers are liars… says Seth Godin… but then he corrects: All marketers are story tellers. They tell the story that they want their customers want to connect to… but some marketers are liars. Deliberately, consciously, and that, in my eyes, makes them liars.

So, what they say about Lester Levenson is obviously so weird, only some persons believing in miracles, divine intervention, would believe. the lowest vibration 40%. Continue reading “Vibrational Review: The Sedona Method, The ReleasingFest”

Want more, better, different than what you have? Here is my contribution to the “manifesting” craze

It seems that people live with a desire way bigger than their skills, their opportunities, their earning capacity, their level of focus, their will power would fulfill.

Desire for stuff, desire for recognition, desire for opulence, status, love, travel, all known to cost you… but who wants to pay? right?

So methods of magic justified with “science” have been popping up.

They say: create with your mind
They say: manifest
They say focus on what you want
They say: want it really really really
They say: place your order to the Universe
They say raise your vibration so what you want will come to you.

So let’s look at this last one, because this falls into our expertise: we raise people’s vibration here… we raise people’s consciousness. Continue reading “Want more, better, different than what you have? Here is my contribution to the “manifesting” craze”

What can you learn from the cult classic, The Mind Parasites by Colin Wilson?

Can you learn how to have peace of mind, productive, and maybe even happy from Colin Wilson and from the book The Mind Parasites?

Colin Wilson died a few years ago. He left a legacy of of many many books, some of them I have read. His vibration was 200, and yet the book can leave you a lot more empowered than Colin Wilson ever was…

This article is about that… how to be empowered by that book, the idea that there are parasites, mind parasites that have their own agenda in your brain. Continue reading “What can you learn from the cult classic, The Mind Parasites by Colin Wilson?”

I have the ascension process… it’s ready… but… can you hack it?

I woke up with a question this morning:

Have I succeeded to create a system that can put a human onto the path of becoming a human being?

The answer was “yes but”. And the proverbial search for the needle in the haystack began.

It’s a lot like the hot/cold game we played when we were kids combined with the game where you could ask questions that the answer was yes/no/bad question

I am quite good at those games.

It’s a capacity that’s missing… but it’s a capacity you need to turn on.

It’s the capacity of understanding, comprehension of words.

And unless you read and read a lot, your comprehension is insufficient to understand clearly what you are supposed to understand so you can do the things it takes to turn yourself a higher level being… to cause an epigenetic shift. 1

I cannot do it for you. But YOU can do it for you… 2 Continue reading “I have the ascension process… it’s ready… but… can you hack it?”

The third brain… immersion: the secret to mastery of life and growth

There are, in my experience, three thinking brains, at least potentially, in every human…

The first thinking brain, the mind, that is in cahoots, in collusion, working against you with the selfish gene. That is what creates a life of reactivity, full of fear, full of anxiety, full of sharp turns and devastating jerks. I’ve lived there… and I hated it.

The second thinking brain, the one that evaluates, reasons, figures stuff out, is slow and plodding, and hard work. Creates real solutions, keeps you out of trouble… but not fun.

And then there is the third thinking brain… the work of thinking is done in the background, on the back burner, while the foreground is silent, resting, or busy learning something new..

That is where I live now.

I am getting a few questions about that, and I decided to tell you as much as I can see… the mechanism is largely hidden from my view… It is in the background…

I’ll use myself, and clients’ and students’ stuff as illustrations…

In the past month I saw more maturing, more “going to the next level” than I had seen in all my career as a coach.

How do you change the past?

The full title of the Playground course is: Playground: it’s never too late to have a happy childhood.

Why is that significant? And what the heck does even mean?

The past is the past, and you cannot change it, they say, but if you look in history books, you’ll see that it does… depending on the point of view of the historian… 1

In the Playground we re-write your history. Not in a fancy, inventive, “you create your life” kind of way… we actually go back to the root incidents, and look at them through different filters, through learning about different invisible dynamics. Continue reading “How do you change the past?”

Want to become competent in life? Competence is rare… even professionals are not very competent

I watched, mostly listened to the “masterclass” selling Eric Edmeades’ Wildfit course.

The truth value of what Eric Edmeades said was 30%. There was nothing in it that was untrue… it just cannot go higher when you have a product for mass consumption, a one size fit all product.

Eric Edmeades’ vibration is 200.

As in every masterclass, he was having a conversation with Vishen Lakhiani, who looks fabulous, but is insufferable, for the most part. His vibration is 150. Continue reading “Want to become competent in life? Competence is rare… even professionals are not very competent”

Go beyond where you normally stop… But where? How? Show me the path…

Prologue

I woke up disgruntled… almost ready to go into devastation (which is my “home page”) but it all changed as I sat down and began to write. What was going to be a rant, became a celebration.

I guess I wasn’t stuck with or invested in resisting being someone who rants when I feel beaten, or slighted, or hurt… It seems that I accepted, embraced, and it got out of my face… All unconscious competence, by the way. I didn’t have to sit around and analyze it… it just happened. …and I could look and see the whole picture… as much as I can see from it.

This is exactly what I teach in the Playground… this is the goal: unconscious competence in getting unstuck, and being able to see the whole reality, with all its beauty and all its ugliness.

Go beyond where you normally stop… But where? How? Show me the path…

Feelings, emotions… what should you do with them?

Most people have one or two tools in their tool box… And what is even stranger: they don’t want any more. Why?

Some of you cannot deal with complexity, and therefore you will deny your right to feel feelings. And some of you will indulge your feelings and never look, never ask any probing questions that could let you see what is really going on…

What am I talking about?

In the Playground program, always starting new groups, we attempt to bring clarity to life, we attempt to reclaim our power over our lives by separating what life seems to be, what seems to be happening in many different ways. One of these is having a “reality” side, everything a Martian could see or detect, and another that is all words. Continue reading “Feelings, emotions… what should you do with them?”
