Are you feeling stuck in your life? Are you feeling as if you can’t move forward? This is caused by fear. Fear actually isn’t real. You can’t be fearful about the past, so fear lives in the future. It hasn’t happened yet, so it isn’t real.
Conduct a Reality Check
Conducting a reality check can help you identify the fear and then reduce its impact on your life so you can move forward.
Step 1:Identify Your Fear. Are you afraid of failure? Success? Homelessness? Death? Loneliness? Embarrassment? Etc? If you’re not sure what the fear is, look for where you’re experiencing stress. Where there is stress, there is fear.
Stressors are the areas in which you are. Remember, you’re only going to rise to the level of your greatest fear.
Step 2:Identify where you think the fear came from. Don’t get hung up if you can’t figure out where it came from, but see if you can remember where it started. If you can’t remember, move on to step 3.
Step 3: Ask yourself, “If this fear came true today, in my life what would happen to me?” Write this out. Writing will empty your subconscious mind. What would happen to you if this fear became real today? Then if that part came true, what would happen? Take it all the way… go to death… and beyond. Play with your fear. This takes the electrical charge off the fear in your head. You want to diminish the electrical charge that fear has on your life because it’s distorting everything.
Once you’ve released the fear, you clear a path to start moving forward again.

Have you ever wondered why the same problems keep coming up for you in your life? Did you know it could be that you are addicted to the emotions certain habits and patterns produce? Yes, we can even be addicted to negative emotions. Here’s how it works. This is an excerpt from my book The Mental Codes.
“Mental Codes are programmed thoughts that are emotionally based, habitually repeated, and dictate our behavior. A Mental Code can keep a person stuck at a specific level of life restricting progress and distorting reality.
When there is a distortion of your reality, it prevents you from making sound decisions that will produce your desired results. Instead, you may make illogical choices that will continue to feed your emotional addiction.
With your less than desirable choices feeding your emotional addictions, problems continue to perpetuate over and over again. Soon a person may believe life is nothing but problems without recognizing that she is actually creating the confusion through her Mental Codes.
Judy landed another new job with a substantial increase in salary. At first thought, Judy was happy with the additional income because it meant she would be able to pay down some of her outstanding debt. After working for three months, Judy did not pay down any of her debt. As a matter of fact, she owed more than she did before her significant raise.
Judy’s Mental Codes were programmed to be financially broke. Regardless of the amount of money that would come into her life, she would always make sure she spent more. After teaching Judy the BioNeuro Technique for reprogramming her Mental Codes, she began to embrace the fact that money was a good thing and she was able to accumulate a large sum of it.
When a person’s Mental Codes are programmed toward a specific thing, the individual develops habits to continue the emotional addiction. Judy’s addiction was financial stress. The more debt she created, the more financial stress occurred. The increased stress caused her mind to increase the brain chemicals for that emotion and soon it became part of her normal life.
So it is the brain’s chemicals, just as it is with any drug, that produces the person’s addiction and the emotion is the triggering factor. A person actually creates an habitual emotional charge that becomes addicting.
What emotions are you addicted to regularly? What problems do you face on a regular basis? What are the similarities of your problems? Do you have frequent but different types of money, relationship, or personal problems?”

I’d like to share with you the power of attracting things with your mind. The mind is like a magnet. No, it’s not like a regular magnet that attracts metals, but it does attract things. It attracts whatever you believe. Whatever you believe, the mind will be attracted to it. It will help to manifest it and attract the other things necessary to make it a reality in your life.
The mind is a magnet that attracts everything into an individual’s life. What is attracting into your life right now? Are they the things you really want? If not, then realize that you have the power to change your thinking to be more in line with attracting what you want into your life.

Close your eyes. Envision lying on a beach. Smell the ocean air. Hear the waves crashing against the shore. Feel the warm sun beaming down. Hear seagulls off in the distance. All these things occur in your mind. Your mind doesn’t know if that’s your imagination, your belief or whether it’s really there.
It’s you that is the determining factor of saying if it’s real or not, but your mind doesn’t know. If you keep on envisioning that long enough, your mind will make that manifest into your life. It will attract different things to get you onto the beach, to make it a reality. It does that with everything in your life. Any successful person will tell you that their success started in the mind. Envisioning is the very first step in making anything from successful athletes to successful people.
Athletes can just sit there, close their eyes, and we can hook them up to electrodes. They can visualize participating in their sport, and we can look at the graph and see that their muscles are responding with electrical impulses as if that athlete is actually participating in their sport.
How is that occurring? The mind doesn’t know if the athlete is actually participating or not, so it’s sending electrical impulses to the muscles as if it is. The same goes with your life. The mind will send out the electrical impulses to the universe and attract back to you whatever you believe to be real.
What are you attracting in your life right now?
Remember the mind cannot pick up three words, “don’t,” “not,” “no.” If you are saying, “I don’t want to be overweight,” then the mind doesn’t hear the word “don’t.” It hears, “I want to be overweight.” So it starts to attract everything to make you overweight.
What do you do if you want to be healthier, wealthier or in a more loving relationship? Instead of saying what you don’t want concentrate on what you do want. That’s how you program the mind to attract things like a magnet. Instead of concentrating on not being overweight, concentrate on being healthy.
You constantly remind yourself, “I am in the process of being healthy.” If you just say “I am healthy,” the mind will say, “No you’re not. Look in the mirror.” It will kick it right out. But if you say, “I am in the process of being healthy” your mind will be receptive of that. As you constantly remind yourself of that, the mind will attract it into your life.
A lady named Joan said that she could not find a good relationship. She had looked for over 40 years for the perfect relationship. She had given up.
I suggested, “Why don’t you try attracting the perfect mate with your mind?” Constantly in your mind say, “I am in the process of finding the perfect mate.”
Now, I’m happy to say Joan not only found the perfect mate, but also the perfect mate says Joan’s perfect for him as well. That tells you the mind can attract whatever you’re thinking about.
The problem with the mind is that it is addicted to many things. Everyone has addictions. I’m not talking only about drug addicts or alcoholics. Everyone has addictions. The addiction is there because of the emotion that is produced from that addiction or habit. The emotion gives the person security, happiness or love. It’s the emotion we’re addicted to and not the habit.
You may think, “You’re mistaken, I don’t have any addictions.”
Do you drink coffee or tea? Do you watch TV? If you watch a program and say, “That’s my program,” guess what? You’re addicted to that program. Some people are addicted to the news or to Oprah.
What about food? Most people will only eat 5-7 specific meals. Every week, when they go grocery shopping, they shop for the same meals. If they go to a restaurant, they order the same meals.
They are addicted from a habit standpoint to those specific meals. There are many different foods out there, but they are addicted to those.
I bet you’re even addicted to sleeping on a specific side of your bed. Try switching over one time and see what happens. It’s amazing as we look at what our addictions are, because whatever you’re addicted to, that is where your life is at. You are at a stuck point because of your addictions. The only way you can achieve more or become more successful and experience more from life is to change your addictions.
Easier said than done. It’s important to note that when you start changing your addictions (whether they are good or bad ones), you may feel a grieving process. You may be angry or depressed initially. The mind is used to having that addiction in its life and it will register it as a loss – just as if you were in bereavement over losing an individual. That’s why if you change mattresses, for instance, the first couple nights are not so comfortable.
If changing a chair or some other furniture can trigger that feeling of loss, imagine changing some significant point or practices in your life that have been holding you back. You may feel a little uncomfortable, even by eliminating these counter-productive things in your life. Check the addictions in your life. Make sure they are in line with what you want to attract with your mind.
Decide what you want in your life, then create a burning desire to attract it with your mind. Keep going, keep going, keep attracting with that burning desire no matter what comes before you. Above all else, do it now. Do it right now, because if you start doing it now, you’ll start getting the life you want right now.
Your mind has amazing abilities that most people never use. As you probably know, it is estimated that we only use less than 10% of the mind in our daily lives. However, your mind is more than an instrument for thinking, figuring out problems, or experiencing life. Your mind is actually an instrument, given to you, with miraculous abilities to manifest things.
What can your mind manifest? Whatever you want!
With the extreme advancement of research on the brain and mind over the last 15 years, amazing things have been revealed that can help you utilize and accelerate the manifestation process. To access these abilities and harness the unlimited power of your mind, you need to know the following:
The mind is separate from the brain. Although the mind affects the brain and the brain affects the mind, the two are separate things.
We have now developed technology to visually experience the mind. The mind is located just above the skull. Approximately one-half inch above the top of the head is an energy field. This mass of energy expands and contracts according to what an individual is thinking.
As a person thinks fearful thoughts, the energy field (the mind) shrinks in size. The same affect occurs when a person is angry or doing something unethical (Doing wrong knowing it is wrong).
When a person is happy, confident, or peaceful, the mind increases in size significantly. The longer and more intense a person experiences these positive emotions, the larger the mind grows in size.
Emotions increase the power of manifestation. In the center of the brain, emotions are created by mixing brain chemicals to create small protein molecules called neuropeptides. These neuropeptides (emotions) direct your life and determine what you will experience emotionally, psychologically, and materialistically. Strong emotions quickly manifest whatever a person is feeling. Let’s take a look at this process for just a minute.
If a person is feeling lack (a negative contracting thought) the brain produces the chemicals and ultimately the emotions of lack. The brain’s response sends an emotional message to the mind which causes a decrease in size of this electrical cloud above the head. This decrease in electricity combined with the emotional message of the brain causes a person to create more lack. This feedback cycle continues to intensify and thereby manifesting more of what a person doesn’t want—lack.
Now, if a person feels abundance (a positive expansive thought) the brain produces the chemicals and ultimately the emotions of abundance. The brain’s response sends a message to the mind which creates an increase in size of this electrical cloud above the head. The brain’s transferred, emotional message along with the mind’s increase of electricity combine to manifest the desired thought of abundance into the material world.
