My students, like popcorn, are starting to pop at the same time. It is hard to say what made each pop… especially if your vocabulary (distinction) is not keeping up with the richness of the invisible reality.
What do I mean?
I have been intrigued with the idea of helping people to be intrinsically motivated, ever since I read and re-read Deci’s book: Why we do what we do.
Without words one can be the best at something, but will never be able to teach it… Continue reading “The secret of happy producers… NOT what time they get up in the morning, or how many books they read…”

Yesterday I was on the phone with a client.
Her soul correction is Fear/Fearless. In the conversation it was becoming obvious that she had read “Feelings” the book I have been so excited about. So the conversation was on a more even footing that most of my conversations: she has been paying attention and recognizing at least some of the dynamics the feelings have, and has been managing her fear quite well.
Buy the book “Feelings” Show proof of purchase for a pdf… you’ll need it. It’s hard to see the illustration on Kindle…
You have always wanted to get out of your head. You tried meditation, drugs, to no avail. Because the way out of the head is through the feelings… the body, where you feel the feelings. Your control center. Overriding the mind nearly 100% of the time.

I have written about increasing your vocabulary, I have said it in coaching calls, I have been asking people to do what it takes, and the answer is… nothing.
One possible reason is that you don’t know what I mean.
I have two students, one of them ex… 🙁 who, while reading books, wrote down words with their meanings, and learned them like a second language.
I, myself, look up every word on my kindle when I read, I not, and then promptly forget the word. I have to look it up again the next time it comes up. And yet, I “sport” an ever growing vocabulary, that has gone from 1000 in 2011 to 5000 nowadays.
Makes no sense, does it? If I don’t learn new vocabulary words, then what do I do? Continue reading “Vocabulary… Does any word added increase your vocabulary?”
My new 20-day skill learning challenge is to listen and internalize 20 videos by Hungarian, now dead, psychologist, Peter Popper.
Why am I doing this challenge? What will this give me?
I am self-taught… or more precisely: I have an education that is hodge podge, eclectic: I gathered knowledge from all over the place, and I have gaping holes, that until this day I had no idea where to fill or how.
The gaping holes are so big, that some of my students could slip through: Whatever I knew didn’t help them to become all they can become.
With that said, I listened to a Dr. Popper masterclass on youtube, sadly, it is in Hungarian, with subtitles that you need to set to your own language…
Dr Popper’s masterclasses, a whole lot of them, have 60% truth value, 30% of what he says fills in my gaping holes. Continue reading “Why unconditional “love” is damaging, and why setting conditions is healthy… even loving?”
George Bernard Shaw wrote more than a hundred years ago: “This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.”
And what he wrote about you, being a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances… is more true today than it was in his time.
No one has offered a solution to that issue until now.

Homo Sapiens, as a species, is pretty messed up. Everything sets its emotions off, and the specimen gets all emotional, angry, afraid, violent, or sad and depressed.
This emotional reactivity makes getting things done near impossible, learning, or having people together pretty hopeless.
Almost all diseases are a consequence of this phenomenon… people eat to soothe themselves. People eat to eat another out of their fortune. People eat to feel superior. People eat to get some enjoyment out of life.
And they eat to fix the damage that overeating caused, and do all kinds of unnecessary things to reduce the damage. Continue reading “You never feel bad about what you think you feel bad about”
I am working to take some of you back to the place where we abandoned the evolutionary path that would have taken up higher, to the promised land, and made a wrong turn.
From being guided by our feelings to being guided by word.
By feelings I am talking about the sensations our bodies give us, not about the emotions that are exclusively marker feelings, created by words.
The article I have found for you is very closely related to what I am talking about, even though it talks about words… but words are not necessary if you have allowed yourself to feel what you feel.
Working with clients, and working on myself, I can see that for much of the time what I am asking of you doesn’t make sense… meaning: the words, the mind, has no idea what I am talking about.
But some of you will trust me, and you’ll manage to retrace your path to a time where inner guidance was reliable.
Why isn’t it reliable now? Because your current “inner guidance” is all words, and words are the main tools to enslave you and separate you from yourself.
Here is the article…
I am expecting some of you raising your hands saying you want to work with me on this.

Why all techniques of increasing Emotional Intelligence are b.s. and not effecting the level of happiness, the level of well-being of people who practice it.
Same is true about the Emotional Guidance System of Abraham/ Hicks… b.s. and ineffective. Why? Because they are trying to change the fruits instead of the roots… Putting makeup on syphilitic lesions. Or pimples, if you are squeamish…
Feelings are clean. They do four simple things. Make you go for it, make you stop, direct you towards pleasure and away from pain… They are the seed level. The foundation. Feelings are what guides you as an organism to feed yourself, to procreate, to stay safe, or to fight. To have a community to belong to, and to have enough information so you know what to do[/note.]
Emotions are a construct on the top of them, created by words, created by marker feelings, and are a veritable mess.

One of the things that came up in the Muscle Testing Course is ethnicity.
This article is not political. It won’t even address your fear of different people… different from you. It only talks about this frame or the lack of it, that cost you your own personhood… you’ll see what I mean later in this article.
I teach you how to free yourself up to become all you can become, and raise your vibration. Your political beliefs are of no concern to me. Whether I step on toes in the process… not skin of my back. Being politically incorrect is my job. Because politically correct has reduced us to labels, sheep, barely people at all. Continue reading “Reframing… Label of ethnicity or cultural origin”
Feedback is a 13th floor (Tree of Life) phenomenon…
If someone mocks you, laugh with them. It is obvious that humans, on the current level of evolution, live in comparison. I am better, smarter, richer, etc. than you/others.
So they mock you, judge you, try to change you. Normal.
You allow your ego to resist: you suffer. You allow your ego to fight back: you suffer.
The best way to deal with it is to laugh with them, agree with them. It takes the wind out of their sail.
All pain, all suffering comes from from your resistance, is the feeling of your own resistance. Continue reading “Resistance, ego, and meaning… the dynamics of your suffering, and misery explained”
