Life goes on. History shows that most of us can see the ways that our children will adapt change and improve our world. The future is theirs and they have always led us to prosper more. This is because nature encourages youth to embrace change.
This is why, though it’s easy to be caught up in short term dilemmas… we should not. Everything always works out… naturally. So if this weekend events in Congress have you worried remember Y2K…. big fears… but really no problem.
This is why Merri and I have such joy in welcoming Matilda Scott-Marsden into this world. Born July 27, 2011, our fifth grandchild.
This has been a marvelous month for us… as we have had time with all our grandchildren… Sequoia and Teeka Cross
and of course, the eldest, Garren Hall.
Now Matilda is here and our fifth is due this October!
Focus on the children because they can teach us so much about how to embrace change in their play.
Because our grandchildren are spread round the world… Florida, Oregon and England… we have built grandkid traps… homes that lure them to us. You can see above what we get up to at our North Carolina farm… 250 acres of hiking, fishing, building, bird and game watching…. a world of play, meadows of beauty, creeks of fish.
we have the sun, the lake and a tree house with a rope swing. It’s the swing that provided the lesson to me about…
going with the flow. Garren and I were camping up in the tree house talking “Guy Things” when Garren decided to take a change and swing out of the tree. He was frightened a bit… having never jumped from a tree before. He did it!
“This is so much fun!” he exclaimed. He’s now hooked on jumping into the unknown.
That’s the lesson. Have faith in the future. Go with the flow and be willing to jump into the unknown.
Now let’s share an actual case study that is taking place right now. This story shows how fast a business can evolve when you unlock the power of mind integration and are willing to go with the flow.
We have a system that unlocks our higher forms of intelligence that we cannot access in lingual form. We practice this technique in our Frequency Modulation Workshop during our International Investing and Business Seminars.
Here are the three steps in this technique:
Step #1: Write by hand for five or ten minutes everything you can about a business idea. This connects the the mind/body functions.
Step #2: Take a ten minute meditation or sit quietly for 10 minutes listening to Baroque largo music. Relax and let your mind wander… use innocence… no expectation.
Step #3: At the end of ten minutes write down whatever is on your mind at that time. Write as much about it as you can…just let it flow.
In the thoughts…in the visions that you have at the end of the ten minute meditation or in the quiet listening, there will be an out of the box idea to dwell on… often in graphic form…a picture rather than words. Dwell easily on this in context of your business.
This tactic was taught to me by a Buddhist Monk and we work with delegates and practice this in the “Quantum Wealth – Frequency Modulation Workshop.
We are all connected…we are all a part of infinite intelligence… that is overwhelming in relation to our ability to think… especially in terms as restrictive as language. The universe terra, terra infinite, bytes of data. Our logic in comparison as a processor… not even 64K. So at the least we cannot expect to tap into the universe in English. Symbols perhaps.
Here is the Case Study.
At the end of our case study at our June 2011 workshop, one of the delegates, Kathryn Vautrot told me…”Gary, the picture I had was of working with you and Merri recording your online courses. My husband, Mills, and I love to listen to educational courses when we are traveling in our car and would love to listen to your courses.”
I was momentarily dumbstruck… before “Duh” kicked in. Merri and I used to offer our seminars on Cassette tape and readers loved them. We have our seminars available on MP3… but we had never thought of recording our online courses on CD so readers could listen to them in cars.
Why not? “Duh” is all I can say and “Thank You, Kathryn” for giving us this spark.
We have learned to go with the flow and be willing to jump into the unknown. In this case Kathryn and Mills did a test recording. They are really good and in just one month Kathryn and her husband have a joint venture business with us… recording our online courses and sending them to readers on CD!
According to Answerbag.com a recent arbitron survey, shows that on average, Americans spend approximately two and a half hours a day in their car. Imagine how much one can learn when that time is devoted to education!
You can now help and save yourself $300 in the process.
Beta Beta Beta
Merri and I learn by doing and by jumping into the unknown so this venture has moved quickly. We have the sample but the first course “Self Fulfilled – How to Have Your Own Publishing Business” is not yet complete on CD… and here I am marketing it… when I have not even yet figured out the glitches and the cost of delivering the product.
To learn I would like to make a limited beta offer that save you $300. The online course “Self Fulfilled – How to Have Your Own Publishing Business” is $499. I will accept 25 orders for this course on CD up to midnight August 2, 2011… four days from for only $199. You save $300. You can have the course on CD as well as online. Online can be an immediate delivery.
The downside is you have to wait for the CDs… because Kathryn is not finished recording yet and then she has to learn how to make the “Dupe on Demand CD” system work.
We may lose money on these 25. We won’t know until the time and the costs of making and sending you these CDs is through. That’s not your problem. We accept that risk… though our guarantee is a little less than normal. We’ll be paying hard cash for duping the CDs and shipping them to you… so if you are not happy we’ll provide credit to any seminar or other online course… not a cash refund. This means (in a way) we share the risk.
For this you get the CDS at almost cost or even perhaps less and we gain an education by jumping into the unknown.
This offer is limited to the first 25 orders before midnight August 2nd, 2011.
Jump Into the Unknown. Go with the Flow even when in the stress of traffic. Gaining new knowledge relieves bad stress and creates good thoughts and action.
Research mentioned at the Franklin Institute on learning says:
Distress Signals from Your Brain
Your sympathetic nervous system does an excellent job of rapidly preparing you to deal with what is perceived as a threat to your safety. Its hormones initiate several metabolic processes that best allow you to cope with sudden danger.
Your adrenal glands release adrenaline (also known as epinephrine) and other hormones that increase breathing, heart rate, and blood pressure. This moves more oxygen-rich blood faster to the brain and to the muscles needed for fighting or fleeing. And, you have plenty of energy to do either, because adrenaline causes a rapid release of glucose and fatty acids into your bloodstream. Also, your senses become keener, your memory sharper, and you are less sensitive to pain.
Other hormones shut down functions unnecessary during the emergency. Growth, reproduction, and the immune system all go on hold. Blood flow to the skin is reduced. That’s why chronic stress leads to sexual dysfunction, increases your chances of getting sick, and often manifests as skin ailments. With your mind and body in this temporary state of metabolic overdrive, you are now prepared to respond to a life-threatening situation.
Stress is Not All Bad
Bear in mind that an appropriate stress response is a healthy and necessary part of life. One of the things it does is to release norepinephrine, one of the principal excitatory neurotransmitters. Norepinephrine is needed to create new memories. It improves mood. Problems feel more like challenges, which encourages creative thinking that stimulates your brain to grow new connections within itself.
Stress management is the key, not stress elimination. The challenge in this day and age is to not let the sympathetic nervous system stay chronically aroused. This may require knowledge of techniques that work to activate your relaxation response.
Switch the bad stress of traffic to the good stress of learning.
Merri and I named our farm Merrily Farms after the song “Row Your Boat”.
We wanted to be constantly reminded to relieve stress by following these words: “Row Row Row Your boat gently down the stream. Merrily Merrily Merrily Merrily, Life is but a Dream.” How true and what good advice!
