My experience of the Law of Attraction and hypnosis downloads. These modern new concepts are authentic however, will have us fleeing back to our comfort zones unless we open our minds to our explorers. Be brave, embrace the new and reap the benefits.


My first experience was the movie called “The Secret”, which claims that the Law of Attraction holds up with metaphysicalDOES LAW ATTRACTION WORK research and this is explained in the movie. The metaphysical is a topic worth exploring as it brings body, mind and spirit out into the light and this knowledge is well worth having.

I watched the movie with an open mind, was prepared to learn more about our brains and science, then decided to get my feet wet and give it a try. How can we accumulate knowledge without getting out of our comfort zones, having a go and making our own informed decision?


Most people interpret The Law of Attraction will bring us what we desire by simply visualising and thinking our way to instant gratification. I was guilty of this for a while. It wasn’t long before common sense prevailed and I realised it would take magic to turn my life from rags to riches overnight.

Norman Vincent Peal’s book “Think and Grow Rich” requires effort, action and consistency to change our mindsets from a negative one to a positive one to reap the rewards.

With my feet back down on the ground I embraced the Law Of Attraction’s techniques to make a start on my journey to riches.


DOES LAW ATTRACTION WORKThe knowledge gained prepared me to get my abundant mindset in front of me by way of a vision board. A vision/goal board is pictures of our goals we want to achieve. My pictures are of a 20-25 meter lap pool, my “Mercmobile”, African Big 5 Safari, The Blue Train, and more. Preparing a vision board is not unusual and I strongly suggest we create one.

Seeing my dreams in front of me everyday gives them power and they become more real and achievable as my brain takes them on board by repetition.


There are three different funnels to the Law of Attraction featuring three individuals, namely Kathryn Hurst, Bob Doyle and Joe Vitale. I have purchased product from all three. I noticed Kathryn’s take is metaphysically informative and discusses her experience to discovering the LOA. Bob Doyle’s take is “feet on the ground” consequently he is readily acceptable without the mysterious and Joe Vitale is a bit of both.

I strongly suggest purchasing The Manifesting Movie as a start because it has the new updated version of “The Secret” (a better version), The No B/s Manual, two hypnosis downloads and a Cheat Sheet. In my opinion it gives a strong grounding as to what to expect from LOA products.

Working with the Manifesting Movie products will give us a taste of hypnosis, grounding and a simple 5 step formulae to use every day, where possible.


DOES LAW ATTRACTION WORKThe brilliance of these modern concepts for personal/professional development is, no matter what we may think of them originally, once we start using them they have our mindsets focused on healthy, positive and possible better outcomes for our lives. There is no difference to “I don’t like exercising but I will do it because my health will benefit from it”. You get where I’m going with this. Often we don’t like something, but we do it anyway, because it is good for our well being.


It is said in the movie how “what you need suddenly appears in your life”.  This is absolute truth and has occurred over and over for me personally.  People have shown up, I’ve been drawn toward new ideas, things, that have taken me further along my path. In fact, dare I say, I have manifested my next step over and over.  I have had many small but significant successes along the way.  Having just reminded myself of the “help” I have received makes me grateful.  It truly is amazing how things unfold.


It is helpful to know where we are now as it is encouraging and sheer joy to realise our progress in say 3 months, 6 months and even 12 months time. Take Action here and find out where you are on your journey.


Something I would like to share with you. I love the hypnosis tracks in this package. Listening gives me the opportunity to take a break, relax and rest for half an hour each day. The benefits to my body and mind of having some simple relaxed down time is extraordinary. I always come away from it feeling recharged and energised with no tension in my body. How would you like to feel this way?

The tracks themselves are simply repetitive positive instruction e.g.” take massive action and make amazing things happen”. I laugh to myself when I regurgitate these words in my everyday conversation. Want to put a smile on your face? Experience this! So much fun.

One of the most common issue with people these days is weight loss.  Take action to try a sample for free!.


My life, my happiness and my well being has benefited enormously by focusing on the positive healthy trainings available in these modern self help programs.

It has been fun chatting with you, and again, I love writing about this stuff because it reaffirms how helpful these programs have been for me personally.

Right now, I deserve some relaxed downtime so I’m off to have a break and listen to positive jargon. Woo Hoo! Cheers now Jill

Precise and fresh ideas for Professional and Personal Development. Modern concepts that will take your authority to another level, open your eyes to simple techniques. Soar like en eagle, leave the turkeys behind. Let’s cover some action steps to get out of the mediocre mindset and into a successful winning mindset.

The ideas presented here will probably not be what you expected. Read to the end and be surprised like I was when I discovered them. I wasted over half of my life in a mediocre mindset and regrettably I can’t get that back.


The practice of instant gratification has the masses jumping into unnecessary debt and gimme gimme mindsets. The normIDEAS FOR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT says it is okay to take a $700,000+ mortgage over a 4 bedroom, 2-3 bathrooms, 2 garages home with all the bells and whistles like swimming pool, big screen TV, the latest floor coverings and furniture. In my opinion this is not okay.

This action immediately locks people into a mediocre lifestyle working a boring lifelong job (Just Over Broke) usually working for a boss to repay the mortgage. Is this action a healthy wise decision? No, it is not, however the social norms approves and encourages this behaviour.

At this point in my rhetoric, I would suggest the brave, courageous people who realise their mistake, would sell the big mansion and downsize to a basic smaller version and immediately reduce their mortgage by half. Sound radical? No, take the emotion out of it and it is plain common sense isn’t it? Start small and build up. I ask you, why live with the mistake? There’s no time like the now to start again. Are you a brave liberated adult or stuck in instant gratification?


Liberated adults make their own wise decisions and choices which often goes against the social norms. You might ask how do I become a liberated adult? How about standing back and witnessing some of the misleading garbage that we are fed, complacently accept and follow like sheep? Question your behaviour and create your own unique path in life and follow in the footsteps of the entrepreneurs. Look at what they do, how they do it and so on. The blueprint is right in front of our eyes. It is time to see it.

The abundantly wealthy people in this life make their own decisions, think outside the box and create their lives. Once we take the first step to be our own mentor, be totally responsible for our life path and where it is going to take us, we open up a world of opportunity.


Our comfort zones are as restricting and strangulating as some of the social norms. Wallowing around in our comfort zones keeps us stagnating, leading a mediocre life along with the masses and oh so cosy. I’ll just do what everyone else is doing. The liberated adult is buried underneath all the brainwashing and childhood conditioning, doing what Mum and Dad and all of our friends and peers are doing. Believe me, if you listen, your will hear your liberated adult screaming for a life of exhilarating action, excitement, curiosity and passion. Get me out of here!


IDEAS FOR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENTResolve to take charge and actually fully live our lives. Our lives can be purpose driven, meaningful and happier, in a heartbeat, if we take actions to make amazing things happen. Instead we accept our mediocre mindsets and follow like sheep. Do we know what would happen if we discovered what we are passionate about and uncovered a dormant talent? I can share with you, once I discovered my passion which led to my talent, my life is full of exhilaration, enthusiasm and meaning.

What are you passionate about? It will be something you absolutely love, can’t get enough of, become totally absorbed with and don’t notice the hours drift by. I get so absorbed doing what I love that I often have to force myself to take a break and eat.

Buried in this passion we will discover we have a natural talent that is eagerly waiting to be exposed, explored and used. This talent will take us out of a mediocre lifestyle and into an entrepreneur mindset. Hey, success is around the corner, so to speak, however not instant. We need to live our talent, breathe it and dedicate ourselves to growing it. Opportunity abounds when we are focused on this one thing, our talent.

We then need to develop ideas about how we can use our talent to provide a lifestyle which brings up how are we going to market it, where to market it etc. etc.


The modern way to market anything these days is online. Do you have your own website or do you need a website? I needed a website and after doing my due diligence, researching and reading I discovered Wealthy Affiliates. We can join for free and check out the training, the “hand holding” community and build two websites hosted by Wealthy Affiliate. I had zilch IT expertise and made a start.

After 3 months I had learned mobs and now I have a solid foundation and am ready to soar. This can be you! You have my IDEAS FOR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENTreassurance that you will be in the best of hands and success is a few months away. Wealthy Affiliates is not a scam, nor is it a “get rich quick” platform. I have to work harder than I ever have, however, the only way I can fail is to give up.

“How can you fly with the eagles when you are mixing with turkeys?” One of the key factors with a new business is to surround ourselves with like-minded people. I knew I was mixing with the turkeys and thought how can I surround myself with people who already have, or are working on successful winning mindset. Wealthy Affiliates have a 2 million strong community that is doing just that. Among them are entrepreneurs and millionaires who have nailed it and willing share their experience and guidance to keep us newbies on the right path. I ask you, what more do you need?

More on Wealthy Affiliates. I strongly recommend you join for free and actually do your own due diligence. The platform is there for you to explore in all aspects and make your own liberated adult decision.


Once again, I have enjoyed chatting with you and sharing my journey to a winning mindset. Embrace these ideas, join me and let’s claim an abundant happy lifestyle. Cheers Jill

Let’s revisit altered states of consciousness and their differences. Turn your mediocre mindset into an abundant successful one with ONE healthy decision.  I have covered my experiences with trance  and higher consciousness in previous posts. We are exploring altered mindsets to take advantage of the power they can bring to our daily lives. Shall we make a start?


We typically go about our lives with a stagnant mindset that has developed from childhood. This mindset is training to giveALTERED STATE OF CONSCIOUSNESS DEFINITION us a mediocre lifestyle. The lifestyle our parents and most of the people we know and associate with believe we need to study to get a formal education which will give us the skills to pursue our best job opportunities. Do you agree?

Unfortunately the masses pursue this path, pretty well working until the day they die, in order to put food on the table and provide for our families as best we can. We are not remotely aware of any other way, the how to create and pursue an abundant free lifestyle. This is not your fault. Sad isn’t it?

Occasionally, people spend a moment or two thinking there must be a better way, have no idea where to start and the healthy thoughts drift away. Has this happened to you?


We can create a mindset that serves us better. To make a start we need to have a powerful reason to start. What would be a powerful enough reason for us to move from stagnation to celebrating our lives. Here are a few goals of mine to help you in the right direction.  These are powerful motivators to keep me focused.

20-25 metre Lapping Pool at home to maintain my fitness, take my husband to an Andre Rieu Concert in Europe, take my husband on the Blue Train in Africa and check out a Big 5 Safari, a regular month long Caravan Trip exploring Australia, Buy my Mercmobile

Make a list for yourselves and share below, in a comment.  Write it down on paper.


Once we have our powerful motivators we need a vehicle to earn the dollars. What vehicle can you think of? After exploring three different ideas and failing through lack of experience and no training I discovered an Online Affiliate Marketing program with a full Training Facility that is proven and works. VOILA VEHICLE FOUND.

Now I had a vehicle I knew I had to stay decided on my new path. I had no excuse and my powerful motivating goals loomed a little closer. I could see them, feel them and taste them. All I had to do was to get them in my pocket literally!!


Surround yourself with like-minded people, training that works and a community that will hold your hand and help you out.  ITS TIME!



Now I’m a raw beginner at this so how was I to grab a hold of the mindset and what was it really? It didn’t take long for me to realise I needed to learn the skills required with affiliate marketing, surround myself with like-minded people and keep my eyes open for a mentor. Do you see the support network building? I also researched, read and chatted with people, in forums, watched training videos related to my path and I thrive on quotes from successful people.

I asked myself, what sets them apart from me? Nothing! They started where I started in life except for the silver spooners. Some successful entrepreneurs in the world are often as young as teenagers through to 25 years. Why not me? I’m not going to stand by and watch these young ones show me up!

In this phase, and for that matter all the way through to completion, we are creating a new winning mindset. Do you understand what I mean?


Do this, never give up, work harder than you have for a boss, work harder than you have in your entire life and the rewards are yours. We need to live, breathe and work our businesses consistently for as long as it takes.

Get rich quick is not a successful mindset because it doesn’t happen. Apart from Lotto.

I have let my friends know that socialising is taking second place for now. A quick get together for a coffee or a phone call is all the time I have. The one social activity I continue with is lawn bowls two nights a week. I get exercise, laugh and relax and this keeps me connected and sane.

This “dig in” attitude is the attitude of winners who are successful, abundant and have freed themselves from forever being slave to the almighty dollar. We need to make sacrifices if we truly want out of a mediocre lifestyle.


Are we prepared to make the necessary sacrifices to develop a successful and abundant mindset? I sure am, what about you? Do you know what, even though I am working harder than I have in my entire life, I feel purpose driven, my life is meaningful and I am happier and more fulfilled. How’s that for rewards along the way? Precious I say.

Gratefulness somehow gives this journey to an abundant mindset more depth. I am grateful I finally had the courage to do what I want to do no matter what anyone thinks. Along the way the next step is always presented to me, literally put in front of me and I follow. I don’t even have to work out what to do next.

I am grateful for finding the perfect vehicle, the training and the community support to hold my hand and help me out. It is important to be grateful for what we already have in order to bring more to be grateful for into our lives. I am grateful for my health, my comfortable dry bed and my air-conditioned office. Think about it? What are you grateful for that you already have and perhaps take for granted?


I changed my mindset from complacency, laziness and stagnation to being a “go getter” and having a mind set of “my goals are already mine”. All I have to do is take massive action and make amazing things happen. I invite you to join me! Remember these quotes: “Nothing changes if nothing changes” and “If we keep doing what we always do, we will keep getting the same results”. In this case a mediocre life. Are you going to settle for this?

You might ask how to be a great person? The pages here will provide you with the resources, the help, the ideas and even a blueprint for life. Grab it and be happy be bright be you! YOU are unique, there is no mould!

LET’S REVISIT OUR GOALS                           POWER OF THE DREAM

    1. Challenge/Question The Social Norms
    2. Get Out Of The Rat Race and Trash Our Comfort Zones
    3. Get Off The Couch and Take Action
    4. Discover Our Passion, Find Our Talent and Fire Your Belly
    5. Now We Are Fired Up, Action our Talent
    6. Overcoming Obstacles
    7. Stick With The Plan
    8. Emotional Freedom Techniques
    9. Learn How To Emotionally Detach


Having addressed all the common issues that keep us stuck in unreality we can now embrace our dreams and turn our lives around. We are coming from a place of clarity, our decisions are cool-headed, we know how to overcome obstacles and we are off and running with focus.

We keep the fire stoked in our bellies, energy abounds and we know we can achieve our dreams by taking massive action and making amazing things happen. The sky is the limit. Let’s go, go, go!


The five most sought after dreams are:

    1. Wealth/Prosperity/ Abundance/Money
    2. Health
    3. Relationships/Love Life
    4. Purpose/Career/Job
    5. Family

We are stalling, perhaps afraid to make a start. Is it that we don’t believe in ourselves? A journey of a thousand miles starts with one step. Try it, take the first step, one foot in front of the other and keep going. There will be times that we will fall down and when we get back up we are stronger for the fall. This has happened to me many times and I refuse to give in or give up. I made a decision that this is not an option and I will keep going to see what is at the end of my efforts. Curiosity is a great driver!

Breathe deeply and take your first step! We don’t want to look back in years to come, and regret not having a go or wondering what would have happened had we taken the first step. Do you agree?


We all want our dreams. Don’t you? Now that we have taken our first step, and got our foot firmly on the ground, what POWER OF THE DREAMcomes next? What do you need? Perhaps a website, help to get started, let your talent lead the way. In order to express your talent you will need tools and a plan. How am I going to market it? What niche am I in? How do I find my audience? How do I target my audience? Need training? Need like minded support group? Sounds a bit daunting to some. I can help you build a website for $0m with a brilliant Traiing Platform and a support group of people doing the exact same thing.

After doing my due diligence I know the best way to promote anything, these days, is on line. It is a proven fact, so why reinvent the wheel? In Australia there are more and more bricks and mortar shops are closing, even after years of success. People these days shop online. Do you? I do and most people I know do.


I needed all the above and found it all in one place at Wealthy Affiliates. One stop shopping Woo Hoo! As I mentioned I can help you get the perfect start….. Are you ready to take action? Bit scary but exhilarating eh?


If you want you own website in less than 5 minutes from this moment you will need to take the following steps.

Step 1: Join Wealthy Affiliate with a Totally Free Account

Step 2: Start building your website for free

Step 3: Here YOU get access to not 1 but 2 FREE Websites

Step 4: Here YOU have a Top Training Platform and I mean TOP

Step 5: Here YOU have one helluva community of like minded people who are doing the same thing

“Poof” In less than half an hour YOU will have met all of your needs for FREE.

How it has been simplified for us, here at Wealthy Affiliates, is exceptional. This was an exhilarating and exciting moment in my life.


When I started with Wealthy Affiliates I had zilch technical knowledge and a lot of balls. The Community not only helps usPOWER OF THE DREAM out and holds our hands with the technical issues but also our personal development needs. If we are feeling down and lost we put up a public blog describing our struggles, our frustrations or whatever and the people in the community reply to us with appropriate responses that lift us up and stoke our fires. Often the sharing comes from their personal experience when they were lost and frustrated and how they overcame their “downer”.

Members share about their health, relationship, careers and family issues. Anything at all! We all know we have a million strong foundation that will help, support and encourage right behind us. In my opinion, this is rare. Do you agree?

I put up a question about where do I get a free Ebook Template and a fellow member came back with two sites for me to go get it. Free software is abundant to get us where we want to go if we only knew where to look. Whatever our needs there is someone in the community that is able to meet them. All we have to do is put up a blog asking for what we need.


After devoting our efforts, staying focused and having wins along the way we do share our successes and back comes the pat on the back, the celebration and jubilation and never ending encouragement.


And of course, once we are out of our trainers, we are then in a position to help the newbies that are joining all the time. Who thought life couldn’t be perfect? This environment, training and success machine is close to it.

This is how entrepreneurs, millionaires and mentors are born. It is more common than not that successful people use whatever tools they can to keep them on track. Firstly achieving the NINE GOALS ABOVE, embracing the new, trying it and surrounding themselves with perfect teams. I know for a fact, successful people, these days, listen to streaming, hypnosis downloads and explore modern ways of training their brains for success. Why not YOU and I? I’m excited to say I’m on my way!


We all need a little help from our “friends”. I enjoy chatting with you and I have found my way to the happiness that was eluding me for years. I am confident there is even more to come however right now, I am the happiest I have ever been. Please feel free to join the conversation and share your thoughts and experience so we can help each other out.

Cheers now, Jill

Put simply it is a state of mind where we witness life rather than reacting to life. Now that’s not hard to understand or is it? Let’s explore how to emotionally detach from life’s events shall we?


Let’s first be clear on what emotional attachment is, in order to undo it. Wouldn’t it be great to have one of those UNDO buttons. Press the button “poof” gone!

We can be emotionally attached to our pets, special plants, friends, kids, money, lovers, family, precious memories, homes,WHAT IS EMOTIONALLY DETACHED cars, all of our possessions, all of our favourite things, winning and even our thoughts like possessing our goals, she’s so perfect, he is a hunk and the list goes on.

In fact these attachments are very like addictions. We desire them so much we imagine we can’t live without them and should we lose any of them we feel differing levels of sadness. Notice here we are reacting to loss. An extreme example is loosing our home and everything in it to fire, flood or some natural disaster.

To easily discover our attachments, ask ourselves if we lost “it” and experienced any level of sadness, we were surely attached to it.

Unfortunately, the consequence of being addicted/attached to anything is we give the attachment power over us and they basically control our lives. Another consequence is often what we are so attached to will leave or allude us. Sad but true!


Our state of mind when we become a witness to life’s events, is keeping a calm nonreactive demeanor, a cool head and we can do whatever we need to do without our emotions becoming involved.

Classic examples here are a medical doctor, going about his business, of amputating a limb. He may feel helpless, even a little sad, because with all his due diligence and medical knowledge he is unable to save the person’s limb. However he will calmly amputate because it has to be, or is the best outcome for the patient.

Another example is the Paramedics that attend an accident scene. They coolly and calmly assess the patient’s condition, make a judgment call and then calmly act to get the best outcome.

In both of these examples the Doctor and the Paramedics are witnessing their patient’s conditions, making a clear and calm judgment call and then acting in the patients best interests.

For me, these people are special types of people, however all they have done is to train their brains to witness these events without becoming emotionally involved. We are all capable of training our brains to witness life and not react to life.


WHAT IS EMOTIONALLY DETACHEDIt is not by coincidence that I am writing an article on detachment because a real life situation has just come up for me! This one is not such an obvious one. I determined to build my online business to enhance our retirement years so money was not dictating what we could and couldn’t do. I found a niche I am passionate about, and allowed me to continue my own development and help others by sharing my personal journey.

This project called for me to set goals, follow my plan, stay dedicated, determined and focused. After 4.5 months I have not yet made a dime and am in the battle of my life to attract traffic (customers). A friend I know is powering and cleaning up and I felt so disappointed for myself and started to doubt my abilities. Here’s a laugh, it’s the first time in my life I have felt a “cold sweat”. I never knew what it was.

I calmed down, shared it with my hubby (who calmly said, “It’s OK. Just keep doing what you are doing and let’s try to make it bigger and better”. Sage words from my man.


I suddenly saw, how my emotional attachment was coming back to bite me by putting doubt in my mind, panicking about whether I had chosen the right niche and about to take me off my path, away from my goals and plans. This, for those who don’t recognise it, is self sabotage!

Now I can see the beast, I have detached from the outcome of my efforts. I love doing what I’m doing and if it helps one other person, my efforts will not have been in vain.

Since then, my mind has showed me clearly what I can do to make my efforts bigger and better and keep on my path to where ever it takes me. I know what I am doing has purpose and meaning for me personally and I have grown and grown. This is reward enough as my life is fulfilled and happier and what will be will be.

This shift is NOT EASY!!!


Suddenly there is nothing to worry or stress about! What will be will be. Do you get it? For example our car gets stolen: weWHAT IS EMOTIONALLY DETACHED can do one of two things. Fly into an emotional reactive state of mind and stress ourselves to the max as we run around in circles thinking “Oh no! What am I going to do? How am I going to get home? How am I going to get to the shops, take the kids to school etc.”. We can run around in a panic, tearing our hair out, putting our blood pressure through the roof and doing ourselves a great disservice. Notice how frantic and wound up this behaviour is.

Or we can: stay calm, keep a cool head and clearly think our way through the situation. Then we will call the police and report the car stolen, grab a taxi/bus or call a friend to take us home. Explore who we might be able to borrow a car from or hire a car until the situation is sorted. Notice how relaxed we are when common sense (clear thinking) is in control. Sure we are annoyed, to say the least, that our car has been stolen but it hasn’t controlled us. We have control of what is the best outcome.


Well, I have bared my heart and soul in the public arena again and this is not easy to do either, however Hello To Happier Days is and always has been about my personal journey.

What comes up for me now is IKEA’s founder Ingva Kamprad who quoted: “Keep your head down and your butt up” looking for better and better ways to help people, and the dollars will follow you”. Remember he developed the flat pack to help his customers with furniture purchases.

Goal No: 8 Let’s explore how to overcome emotional baggage. We all carry emotional baggage and there are ways to release it. We need to learn how to make wise decisions with our emotions in check. Emotionally charged decisions will have us quit, will put us deeper in debt and drop us in the shite.


Firstly we have to recognise the beast is in action. Some examples of these feelings are: believing we are always right andEMOTIONAL FREEDOM TECHNIQUE HANDOUT battering others with our incessant ravings, I have to have it and I have to have it now resulting in blowing the budget, getting into conflict through jealousy, when trying to achieve a task and running into obstacle after obstacle, our emotions overcome us and we miss something important.

The emotional beast is at work when we feel frustrated, fed up, angry, jealous, overwhelmed, overloaded, wound up like a spring, tight as a drum, tense, throw things, hit out, yell, blame, abuse and you know where I’m going with this. These are all damaging emotional patterns.


Have the presence of mind not to take the bait. Simply make a statement like I’m not arguing with you, perhaps we can talk about this later when we are both calmer, I need time to think about this or simply walk away. Try to defuse the situation. A task that is frustrating us where we keep trying the same thing over and over? Simply walk away, take a break, go for a walk and clear our heads. Often when we resume we notice, what we were missing, or see the answer with fresh eyes.

Reactions and decisions guided by highly charged negative emotions never end well.


In his day Socrates, a Liberated Adult and well known philosopher once said:

“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new”.

For those interested in philosophy: Socrates, an Ancient Greek Philosopher (399 BC to 470 BC) developed the Socratic dialogue (his method of questions and answers) and led to today’s platform of understanding in this area.

He then taught Plato, who in turn taught Aristotle who then advised Alexander the Great.

Pretty awesome reference I reckon.


By following the “norm” and staying in my comfort zone I was dead from the feet up for over half my life! They say you get wiser as you grow older, but nothing can give me back that wasted half of my life.


I implore all of you to not waste your lives like me, and furthermore, teach our children to truly LIVE their lives. It is not too late!


The Liberated Adult acknowledges and owns the damaging emotions they are feeling. In order to progress to making a common sense, inspired decision these feelings need to be released and recognised for what they are, simply damaging feelings. How do we do this?


These techniques, like all techniques or instruction papers, are somewhat clinical to read. I suggest you skip over them for now, read on and find why they will help you. It is my intention to have inspired all of you, and then come back, read them, print them off and make them an integral part of our daily lives.

NO: 1 I sit the feeling up in front of myself and examine it. I recall all the associated feelings that come up. Now I have aEMOTIONAL FREEDOM TECHNIQUE HANDOUT clear picture of what it feels like, looks like, smells like, where it fits in my past and the guts of it.

Then I look for the opposite positive feeling and sit that up in front of me and recall all the times in my life that I have felt that feeling, how good it feels, how I’ve already experienced it and I know I can feel and have it.

Then, charged with the passion of all my past knowledge where I felt so good, I am able to release the negative feeling that was holding me back and replace it with positive feeling.

This space is an extraordinary place to be when making decisions. It is a place of detachment, being cool and unemotional. Everything becomes crystal clear and decisions are made with intent and total confidence.

NO: 2 A session with any mirror. Have you ever really looked yourself in the eye? This technique is similar to the first except we face ourselves as we discuss with ourselves our current damaging emotional state. Usually my eyes become glazed and my normal focus can become distorted. This is a good thing, we are now in a state of deep relaxation just let it happen.

For example:  After a few deep breaths and relaxing, I say to myself in the mirror I feel desperate and bring up and discuss with myself all the past details just like the first technique. Then I picture myself in say 1-3 months time in the future still feeling desperate and nothing has changed. Let all of that go.

Now I imagine myself having made the change to my confident self. Play it out like running a video and make it big and full of passions and knowing. Let it go.

Then I ask myself, how did you make the change or what do I need to do next? Sit ever so quietly, wait and listen. Thoughts will arise to the forefront (from our own experience in life) that will answer our questions and show us what action to take. Sometimes, nothing arises at that moment, but we will have one of those “aa ha, light bulb flashes” in the next day or so.

Then I quietly find 5 things to be grateful for in my now. My cosy bed, roof over my head, health and well being, success I have so far etc. etc. This finishes the session leaving me feeling looked after and taken care of despite my struggles.  For this I am truly grateful.

I learned this technique from Joe Vitale extraordinaire, by purchasing and trying his so called “new age fan dangle rubbishy program”. Says it all doesn’t it!  Joe has a free quiz you can do to find out where you are on your journey.


Due to an emotionally charged decision made a couple of years ago, I am DESPARATE to make money. I woke feeling DESPARATE. It seemed that all my dedicated efforts kept amounting to nothing and I wasn’t getting any traction. I felt miserable, frustrated, heavy, tense, hurt and angry to name a few.

The opposite that came up for me was CONFIDENT. I looked back in my life for times when I brimmed with confidence and success. I remembered my excellent school report cards (until I discovered “boys”), how I got every job I wanted with ease, how I did well at tennis and swimming, how I became Manager of a Credit Union. The icing on the cake was I recalled the job references that I was given and how they expressed my competence and amenable personality.

I was uplifted and remembered how CONFIDENT I had been and took on anything I wanted and achieved success. I knew I had the confidence in myself to achieve today’s goals.

Dressed in the confidence I know I have, I went back to work with an amazing attitude that all is well and I will succeed.


They rob us of opportunities and they drop us in the shite and here we are back in our comfort zones and wallowing in the  “norm” again. If, the sometimes misguided “norm” says it’s a scam, people believe it. The word scam is highly charged and we mistakenly accept all without question. I implore people to question, research and gather information for themselves soEMOTIONAL FREEDOM TECHNIQUE HANDOUT we can make independent unemotional decisions based on fact.

Examples of a “norm” scam” is pyramid selling, any get rich quick programs, buying email lists etc and after researching, gathering facts I made informed decisions they are not for me. Note: Had I made an emotionally charged decision, based purely on “hearsay” I would not have been able to weed out the good from the scams.

Why did I say that? Because tossed into the same “norm” basket was Wealthy Affiliates, making money online, manifesting programs and hypnosis downloads. I put on my Liberated Adult hat, gathered facts, did my own due diligence, tried the products and discovered they are authentic, genuine and have integrity.  Are you interested in an online business?  YES!  I am a member of Wealthy Affiliates, it is free to join.  Upon clicking on the link the first page will ask for your email address, scroll on to research and get an idea.

On my journey I have learned to release the past and focus on the new. To do this I had to get out of my comfort zone, question the “norm” and make my own unemotional decisions. In the process I grew up and became a Liberated Adult.

We must grow up and become independent free thinkers. Liberated adults get all the goodies. When we naively accept the “norm” and remain cemented in our comfort zones we are not living. We are, in fact, dead from the feet up. Is this what we want for ourselves? NO! Not for me!

This new place I’ve discovered of being detached, being cool, having clarity and making common sense unemotional decisions is living my life, on my terms.  Now I know why the monks talk about detachment!

It is not easy to break out of old habits, however, once I practiced these techniques I became aware I now find making changes in my easy. I have developed a new habit and a new way to live.
