The PEAK TRANSFORMATION Experience

Primary human experiences such as sadness, anxiety, anger, and sex drive are routinly denied and bottled up due to the pressure of cultural expectation. Like other instinctual drives, when these negative emotional responses are chronically repressed, they become problematic, pathological, toxic and potentially dangerous to self and/or others.

The Bioenergetic techniques explored in this workshop offer a broader therapeutic approach sought to release these bound-up energies and facilitate their release through expression. This approach also includes the process of self-discovery and offers resolution for long-standing internal conflicts and traumatic memories.

We will also be playing with Quantum light breathing; a guided sensory meditation and breath technique that unlocks hidden potentials within the psyche to further explore the cathartic effects of the Bioenergetic practice.

10 Rules To Being Human

10 rules to being human

Rule One – You will receive a body.
You may love it or hate it, but it will be yours for the duration of your life on Earth.

Rule Two – You will be presented with lessons.
You are enrolled in a full-time informal school called “life”. Each day in this school you will have the opportunity to learn lessons. You may like the lessons or hate them, but you have designed them as part of your curriculum.

Rule Three – There are no mistakes, only lessons.
Growth is a process of experimentation, a series of trials, errors and occasional victories. The failed experiments are as much as a part of the process as the experiments that work.

Rule Four – The lesson is repeated until learned.
Lessons will be repeated to you in various forms until you have learned them. When you have learned them, you can go on to the next lesson.

Rule Five – Learning does not end.
There is no part of life that does not contain lessons. If you are alive, there are lessons to be learned.

Rule Six – “There” is no better than “here”.
When your “there” has become “here” you will simply obtain another “there” that will look better to you than your present “here”.

Rule Seven – Others are only mirrors of you.
You cannot love or hate something about another person unless it reflects something you love or hate about yourself.

Rule Eight – What you make of your life is up to you.
You have all the tools and resources you need. What you do with them is up to you.

Rule Nine – Your answers lie inside of you.
All you need to do is look, listen, and trust.

Rule Ten – You will forget all this at birth.
You can remember it if you want by unraveling the double helix of inner-knowing.

‘If Life Is A Game, These Are The Rules’ is essential reading if you are interested in behaviour, relationships, communications, and human personality. ‘If Life Is A Game, These Are The Rules’ is also commonly referenced book in the life-coaching industry. If you are interested in making the most of your life, and helping others do the same, buy ‘If Life Is A Game, These Are The Rules’.

The Good Fairy (Trauma and Healing)

Fairy story

A number of years ago I was working with a client, who also had some exposure to meditation, and she shared a story that for her expressed her own experience.  I want to tell you the story: It starts when she’s 7-years-old hiding in a closet, terrified after another unexpected attack from her drunken, enraged father. The little girl is praying saying, “Help, I can’t take it anymore.”  And she opens her eyes to see a fairy in a haze of blue with a glittering wand. She lets the fairy know how her father has been beating her and that her mother doesn’t help, and how she believes they both really wish she was dead.

The fairy listens with tears in her eyes.  She tells the little girl that while she can’t make all this pain disappear, she can help her get through this time.  She can help her forget, then help her remember later when she’s able to handle it. With a wave of the wand, the good fairy says, “I’m going to send things into different parts of your body and they are going to hold them for you until you feel strong enough to let them move freely again.”  And she explained she would dull her pelvis and her belly to block the sexual energy from moving, and she would constrict her heart and her throat so she wouldn’t feel the raw intensity of her fear and the need to cry out. The little girl wouldn’t have to feel the broken-heartedness.

“You’ll have trouble feeling and being close to people, but it will be your way of surviving.  At those times that the pain erupts, you will find your own ways to control it. Ways that may not look good to the world, but will be of temporary comfort.  And you, my darling, will be fairly functional. You will be a functional human being in spite of all this because you have a strong mind and you can hold all this in.  And I will be helping you.”

The child looked directly into the fairy’s eyes and asked, “How will you help?  Will you come back to see me?”

The fairy replied, “You will not forget everything.  I will leave a voice inside that will urge you to reconnect with your whole self.  It may be a very long process, but in time, you will feel an urgent calling to step out of imprisoning beliefs, to unwind your body and release what is has been holding all these years.  You will learn the art of sacred presence. There will be physical and emotional pain as you open, but you will have what you need: the compassion and wisdom, the support of loving others to be a whole person, spiritually awake, but still the same.  It’s because your soul has always been there, just hidden by scars of this lifetime.”

The story ends as the fairy gently puts her arms around the little girl’s shoulders and leads her to bed.  As the little girl finally relaxed into deep sleep, the fairy gazed tenderly at the small, innocent face and then whispered her goodbye.

“When you wake up, you will forget I was here.  You will forget you asked for help. You will forget the sharpness of your daily pain.  This is the only way I know to get you through this. You are a beautiful child, and I love you.  In fact, your parents love you, although they are incapable of showing it to you. You will have to love yourself enough to heal so that when you are older, your life will be powerful, full, and free.  One day you will know who you really are. You will trust your goodness and know your belonging. Until then, and for always, I love you.”

The Invitation

It doesn't interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart's longing.

It doesn't interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dream, for the adventure of being alive.

It doesn't interest me what planets are squaring your moon. I want to know if you have touched the centre of your own sorrow, if you have been opened by life's betrayals or have become shrivelled and closed from fear of further pain.

I want to know if you can sit with pain, mine or your own, without moving to hide it, or fade it, or fix it.

I want to know if you can be with joy, mine or your own; if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful, be realistic, remember the limitations of being human.

It doesn't interest me if the story you are telling me is true. I want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to yourself. If you can bear the accusation of betrayal and not betray your own soul. If you can be faithless and therefore trustworthy.

I want to know if you can see Beauty even when it is not pretty every day. And if you can source your own life from its presence.

I want to know if you can live with failure, yours and mine, and still stand at the edge of the lake and shout to the silver of the full moon, 'Yes.'

It doesn't interest me to know where you live or how much money you have. I want to know if you can get up after the night of grief and despair, weary and bruised to the bone and do what needs to be done to feed the children.

It doesn't interest me who you know or how you came to be here. I want to know if you will stand in the centre of the fire with me and not shrink back.

It doesn't interest me where or what or with whom you have studied. I want to know what sustains you from the inside when all else falls away.

I want to know if you can be alone with yourself and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments.

The Story Of You (A Salmon)

Think about how amazing it is that a salmon will travel from an enormous ocean and find the one river it was born in. Out of all of the other streams and rivers pouring into this huge ocean it searches for one specific channel and finds it.

For a long time you swim through the ocean. For a long time you search trying to follow this all-consuming instinct, going far beyond the place you began.

Then one day you happen to swim upon a small, bubbling cove. You notice a strange feeling in the current splashing down from above. Curious, you swim closer. For a moment you feel the water moving through the current is somehow different. It gives you a sense of inner stillness and after a pause you decide it must be followed. The current will take you beyond the familiar world you can relate to and following it means you will be moving against the flow.

The Ultimate Guide To Reinventing Yourself - James Altucher

A) REINVENTION NEVER STOPS

Every day you reinvent yourself. You’re always in motion. But you decide every day: forward or backward.

B) YOU START FROM SCRATCH

Every label you claim you have from before is just vanity. You were a doctor? You were ivy league? You had millions? You had a family? Nobody cares.

You lost everything. You’re a zero. Don’t try to say you’re anything else.

B1) SURRENDER

Don't regret the storm that left you deserted here.

Don't be anxious about the life in front of you, although it's hard.

Surrender to the current moment. Serve the moment. It's the only master you need to listen to.

C) YOU NEED A MENTOR

Else, you’ll sink to the bottom. Someone has to show you how to move and breathe. But don’t worry about finding a mentor (see below).
