Manifesting to Avoid Confrontation

One wonky way that people try to apply the Law of Attraction is by attempting to bypass an unpleasant confrontation. Instead of attracting what they want, they’re partly trying to skip over what they don’t want. Examples include trying to avoid: a difficult break-up conversation with a relationship partner firmly clarifying boundaries with a friend…

Ass-Kicking Frames

Here’s a really simple idea that can be useful for self-motivation. Sometimes our frames are too flabby, giving us lots of leeway to drop the ball and slack off. In such cases it may be useful to adopt harsher frames, at least temporarily, to demand more from ourselves. Here are some of these ass-kicking frames…

Your #1 Priority May Lead You Astray

While it’s good to set goals and establish priorities, there’s a risk when you become myopically focused on a single outcome. Single mindedness can be okay for a while if you’re progressing nicely, but if you’ve gotten stuck and the needle isn’t moving, this stuckness can prevent you from making progress in any area of…

Reality’s Clues

This morning I experienced a fun little synchronicity – reality’s way of dropping me an extra clue when I need it. I went for my usual sunrise run, this time along a paved running and biking path that circles the outskirts of Las Vegas, known as the Beltway Trail. Here are some pics of what…

Imaginary Failure

Confidence and certainty are often disconnected from accuracy. I’m sure you’ve seen plenty of cases where someone holds a belief that clearly isn’t true. What you see so clearly in others in harder to see within yourself, however. For that reason it’s wise to identify, question, and test some of your assumptions to see if…

Visualizing Energy Flows

Visualizing your goals can be helpful, but don’t limit your visualizations to the same types of scenes you’re accustomed to seeing with your eyes. Your mind is a lot more powerful than your eyeballs. Note also that your visual cortex is only about 0.5% of your brain. Consider what more is possible if you could…

Coronavirus Pressure

For quite a while my home state of Nevada was seeing less than 200 new coronavirus cases per day. Then the casinos, bars, and many other local businesses were allowed to reopen. I soon saw the stats creeping up to 300-400 new cases per day… then to 500-1000 per day. Now we’re around 1400 new…

The Possibility Space

One of the key lessons of the Submersion course is to keep reminding yourself that more is possible. There’s a massive world of possibility beyond your limited range of experience. Within this possibility space are solutions to all of your problems. There are life-altering experiences that you haven’t even fathomed yet. This world of possibility…

When Reality Declines Your Offer

I made some offers to reality this year that it declined. My declined offers included planned trips to Portland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Milwaukee, Chicago, and Costa Rica. If the original plans held up, Rachelle and I would be embarking on about 30 days of travel starting later this month, including two wonderful multi-day events with…

Dragons Don’t Care About Lines

If you feel like you’re being held back from advancing in some area of life, consider that you may be correct. Let’s suppose that something is holding you back. Can you identify what that something is? Is some person or group of people getting in your way? Is a physical issue with your body slowing…
