Four Steps to Becoming Invincible with EFM

heavenFaithFor those of you who don’t already know, EFM stands for Extreme Faith Mentality. And with it you can become absolutely impervious to anything that life throws at you.

EFM is a champion’s mindset. It’s the mentality of a winner and a lover of life.

But not everyone is willing enough to literally brainwash themselves with the Extreme Faith Mentality. It takes a special kind of person…a “rebel” if you will.

This is because the world has veiled all of us with darkness. And choosing to turn to the Light is an enormous undertaking that will affect everything in your life.

This mentality is not for the faint of heart.

EFM is for people who truly want to free themselves from “the matrix” and put an end to all evil, suffering, and failure in their lives.

In fact, no negativity at all can exist in an EFM-brainwashed mind. The only catch is that the “reprogramming” process is not easy and it’s not fast. But you will notice the results immediately, from the very first time you begin employing this mentality.

Foods will taste better, the air will smell more crisp, and music that you’ve listened to for years will begin to LEAP out at you with striking clarity. All kinds of splendid little details you’ve never noticed will suddenly seem to ‘pop’ into your awareness.

Not only that, but you’ll begin to detect certain things about people with mind-blowing clairvoyance.

When you adopt EFM, life slows down. You’ll begin to notice a “silence” — a peaceful presence –that you haven’t noticed before.silence

You might already be familiar with these concepts. If you’ve ever experienced a peaceful stillness or an awe-inspiring feeling of Trust, you have already had an encounter with this mentality. Many seekers throughout history have dabbled in EFM without even realizing it.

But if you’d like to know how to reliably and consistently train with EFM, then please read on. However, I must warn you: this article is not for people who believe in the concept of ‘impossible’. And it’s not for quitters.

Adopting this mindset will require a great deal of tenacity, courage, strength, and persistence on your part.

Because from the moment you begin to cleanse yourself with the virtues of EFM, the darkness will fall upon your spirit in the form of trickery, deceit, and temptation. This “darkness”, if you will, comes from within each of us.

devilSome people refer to this collective force in the world as “the devil”. And I shouldn’t have to tell you this, but since you’re reading my blog you probably already know that the devil isn’t a red guy with a pitchfork and horns who lives in a fiery abyss of hell. The devil is an energy. And it’s an energy that you will become highly familiar with, should you embark on the Quest for EFM.

Contrary to popular belief, ‘devil’ need not tempt the fallen…instead, he strives to tempt the seeker.

Think about it: where does the devil reside in this world? Is the devil in the brothels and drug houses?

Does the devil nestle himself in the arms of the addicted? The afflicted? The infected?

No, sir. The devil has already won these battles. He needs not prepare his reinforcements in places that the darkness has already consumed…his armies do not invade the minds and souls of our fallen brethren.

Why would the devil continue lashing a man who’s willing to wield the whip himself?

Once a man meets his own demise, the devil will then move on to a pure soul.

The devil is in the churches, luring to the apple all those who use Christ’s crucifix as their cloak of deception.devilWoman

He hides just beneath the thin veil of flesh worn by the provocative woman.

The devil lurks in the saccharine pleas of the downtrodden, waiting for you to mistakenly cast your pearls before said swine.

He nestles with your hopes, dances with your dreams, and pushes you into saying, “It’ll be fine.”

The devil’s presence can often be found where you least expect it.

He will find you, bringing increasingly robust armies to match the strength of your resolve.

Before committing to EFM, be sure you’re arrayed in a proverbial breastplate of preservation.

breastplate

The breastplate will afford you much strength and defense, but it is not impenetrable, comrade. You will be wounded by the devil’s forces. And you will be led astray. Your only saving grace will be your resilience — the speed at which you can return to Faith.

Persist in EFM…and everything you’ve ever wanted will be yours in a short time.

All you must do is follow the following steps until mastery:

Step #1 – Lose Your Mind

In order to develop an Extreme Faith Mentality, you must be willing to abandon everything you think you know about reality.

This is a hard one: we humans love to hang on to our delusions. But with just a little bit of willingness, you’ll quickly begin to discern between Truth and your ego-driven stories/delusions. Identifying your delusions is one thing, but letting them go will require a fair amount of tolerance for emotional pain.

Your unconscious programs aren’t necessarily “bad”. They have served a good purpose up until this point: protecting you.

But from this day forward, you no longer need your programming to protect you. You are now shrouded in the mysterious power and love of EFM.

It’s time, comrade, to set your fear-based programs aside and step into an unwavering mentality rooted in unshakable faith.

*** WAKE UP! The Matrix no longer has you. ***

program

Mastering Step #1 means undoing your pre-programmed notions of good and bad that have been keeping you faithless all this time. You may find yourself naturally recoiling against the truths I am about to tell you in this section. And that’s to be expected.

But you must choose for yourself: adopt these values or continue living a vacuous, surface-level lifestyle.

The first truth I’d like to share with you takes the form of a question:

If God is Perfect Love and encompasses everything, how could there be room for imperfection?

Imperfection does not exist. Don’t be fooled, comrade.

Yes, there are relative evils in the universe and on this planet. But why make the choice to react to them negatively if their higher purpose is not known?

What contemporary society does not tell you is that you can choose to feel however you want to feel about everything in your life.

consciousness

To lose your mind means making the choice to completely abandon preconceived notions that have been programmed into you. Comrade, many falsities have been planted in your fragile mind since before you can even remember. One of these falsities is the illusion of evil.

Contrary to popular belief, “evil” is not a cause…it’s not an autonomous force. Evil is a result that stems from man’s reactions.

In keeping with Step #1, you must be willing to brainwash yourself. That is, to cleanse your brain, washing it of falsehood. Putting “evil” in proper perspective will help you to become impervious to its effects.

Divorce yourself from the folly of mankind and its hordes of men and women that tell you that you “should” feel sad, mad, guilty, or afraid. You can feel however you want to feel and I don’t think God wants you to feel anything but Faith, Love, and Bliss. Don’t be fooled comrade.

As I type these very words, man’s bloodhounds have been unleashed, and they’re coming to convince you otherwise. They’ll tell you that you’re a monster, a psychopath, a criminal, a coward, or a simpleton.

Don’t be shaken! Stand firm in your faith. Maintain your purity!

The devil is a charlatan who speaks with a saccharine smile. His lies are convincing and he’s a master at painting a dismal reality. The devil reminds you constantly to, “Look around. Just take a look around at how horrible everything is.”

The beauty of EFM is that it gives you Divine Sight — “vision” without eyes.

illidan

The reason we have electricity, airplanes, and the internet is because a few brave men chose to “see” things that weren’t there. And you better believe that every single one of these men had a horde of people urging them that they were insane.

Perhaps the most foolish assertion ever uttered by mankind is, “I’ll believe that when I see it!”

Faithless mentalities like these are what keep the vast majority of men and women trapped in a sea of pain, a world of darkness, and a “reality” of deprivation.

Hard work alone will not breed abundance. Suffering will not lead to abundance. Mantras, affirmations, plans, goals…none of these things alone will produce abundance. Consequently, these are all things that you can “see”.

What you can’t see is the secret ingredient that allows a human to have Love, Riches, Peace, and Freedom…

…that ingredient is Faith.

If you wish to cultivate an Extreme Faith Mentality, you must FIRST be willing to BELIEVE…and only then will you begin to SEE.

The world has programmed you with a toxic inclination toward logic and rationalization. Lose this mindset and adopt the mentality of faith: a mindset that operates according to paradox and exists among unseen energies.seeing

Faith is contrary to everything you’ve been taught. It is trust without reason…sight without eyes…

To become One with the Extreme Faith Mentality that I speak of, there is but one, overarching that rule you must master:

Every event of every moment of every day exists to serve but one purpose: To evolve you, the planet, and the multiverse closer to Godlikeness.

Like it or not, comrade, but everything that happens in your life is meant to serve your ultimate benefit. God does not stand in your way. He does not allow you to suffer.

It is YOU who does these things to YOURSELF.

And, trust me, this axiomatic truth will be the biggest thing you struggle with during your short term here on this planet.

enlightenmentIt will take you many years of devout practice before you are able to fully embrace this truth. Master it and you will have reached the state of mind commonly referred to as “Enlightment”.

That’s where I’m headed. And if you take my hand, comrade, we shall walk together, as corporeal humans, into the Eternal Kingdom.

I’d like to close this section by inviting you to download The Ascension Cheat Sheet. On it are a handful of other Higher Truths that will help retrain your mind toward an Extreme Faith Mentality.

Step #2 – Acknowledge that You’re Operating a “Meat Machine”

So now that you’re willing to “Lose Your Mind”, so to speak, it’s time you learn how to maintain this mindset by coming to terms with the fact that you’re a human being, and you’re not perfect.

In order to do this, simply realize that you are basically a God in a monkey’s body. Although incredibly vast, the brain’s neurological network can not easily comprehend the infinite being that you truly are.

Realize also that you are not always going to have perfect faith. Especially as you start out, your faith will be highly volatile, allowing your positive EFM energy to vary wildly from day to day, sometimes from hour to hour.

There will be some days when you question the existence of anything beyond what you can see…

…and these are definitely dismal days.

But I urge you to accept the ups and downs as gracefully as possible, riding the wave until you’re back at the next crest. In other words, when you feel like God doesn’t care about you or doesn’t exist, don’t despair and start solidifying the misconception by voicing it aloud or thinking about it with any real force.

Just relax, do something else, and let time pass. You’ll be feeling good again soon.

feelinggood

There are many reasons why some days you are more susceptible to faithlessness. The biggest reason I’ve found for this in my own life is lack of sleep. But this might just be me.

I’ve noticed that on days when I didn’t get enough sleep, I start feeling irritable about life and sometimes the smallest things can send me into a downward spiral of depression.

These days are really hard to get through. It’s eons harder to maintain a high perspective on life when your brain isn’t functioning optimally. After all, you’re an organic machine comprised of chemicals…and when these chemicals are imbalanced it can be really tough to have faith.

For best results, make sure you get plenty of sleep, nutrients, water, sunlight, and exercise.

Don’t make EFM any more challenging than it already is. Our monkey brains already tempt us constantly with the trivialities of life.

As soon as something “bad” happens in our lives, we immediately begin writhing in pain. We say things like, “Life is so unfair.” Or, “God doesn’t care!”

In actuality, it would serve us far better to not label things as ‘bad’ in the first place. With this mindset, you can actually set yourself up to become grateful for the experience.

goodorbad

Get into the habit of saying to yourself, “Good or bad…I don’t know.” Because you don’t. You can’t.

In a universe headed by an omnipotent, all-loving God…there is no room for “bad”. Everything serves your (and the universe’s) greatest benefit simultaneously.

Imagine the infinitely complex web that God has woven. Do not underestimate it. Every single event has been hand-crafted to serve the highest benefit of every living and nonliving thing on the entire planet and in the entire universe.

Sometimes simply contemplating the vastness of God can help you to regain perspective on the challenges that life throws at you.

After all, you do not decide what events are thrown at you…you only have control over your reactions to them.

Whenever you feel like the sea of life is swallowing you up, it’s good to take a break and remember that you are not alone. God is close to those in pain.

So remember to “look up” once in a while, will ya?

Step #3 – Chip Away at All Inessentials

chipaway

There are a lot of things in this world that can hold you back from developing an Extreme Faith Mentality. Some of them are harder to give up than others.

In order to maintain an Extreme Faith-based Mentality, you will have to keep your mind sharp and engaged. This means chipping away at a lot of the inessentials in life.

There’s nothing inherently “wrong” or “bad” about any of the things I’m about to mention. But your life will be negatively impacted at the point where these things become an addiction.

Life is all about balance. If you’re doing something too much or too frequently, then it begins to have a dramatic effect on your ability to maintain a sharp focus on your mental/spiritual progress.

The first addiction I’d like to discuss is violence. The media constantly bombards us with stories and images of murderers, rapists, thieves, muggers, terrorists, and dictators. My big suggestion to you is to separate yourself from these fear-driven stimuli.

And while you’re at it, I recommend that you stop watching the news altogether. It doesn’t keep you informed…that’s an illusion. What it does is keep your energy and vibration low, so that you are more suggestible and easily controlled by fear.

Fear is, and has been, the predominant emotion on this planet used for manipulation. You do not need to indulge this mindset. There is no need to be afraid…fear doesn’t keep you safe. That’s just an illusion voiced by those people who are addicted to fear-based programming.

fearYou honestly need to keep your energetic distance from people who are programmed with a fear mindset. At least for a while, until your faith grows strong enough that you can begin to see these people with Love and Compassion.

Whether it’s your mother, brother, neighbor, best friend, or partner…if they’re constantly trying to lower your energy levels then you need to separate yourself emotionally and physically. This will likely hurt a lot because you’re so used to the energy exchange going from you to them. And there’s a lot of pain associated with the process of ripping apart co-dependent energy bodies.

But in the long run it is necessary for your spiritual growth. You do not need people in your life that bring you down with their fears and insecurities. Whether they constantly want your sympathy or they downright ridicule you, it’s time to move on.

You don’t have to be mean about it. And you don’t even have to tell them why you’re not talking to them as much. The relationship will die on its own if you decide to stop fueling it.

They say that, in a lot of ways, you’re the average of the five people you spend the most time with.

So take a second and think about who these five people are in your life. And then ask yourself where these people are headed. Are they helpful for your growth as a human being? Do they have goals and ambition? Do they help you? Encourage you? Love you? Believe in you? Support you?partways

These are all questions you have to seriously consider. If the answer is ‘no’ to too many of these questions, it may be time to part ways.

I’ll tell you from my own experience that I had to dismiss the vast majority of people in my life. Just a few years ago, I was the center of the party. I loved being right in the heart of every social gathering. I had more friends than I knew what to do with.

But then things quickly shifted for me as I began to “wake up”. I realized that very few of these people were actually helpful for my growth. So I stopped talking to them. Done.

Today there are just a few select people that I keep in my life and close to my heart. But that’s because they have proven themselves to be indispensable to my growth as a human being.

For the people I’ve eliminated from my life, I have only love in my heart. It’s important not to hold grudges against anyone. Forgive them.

And it doesn’t mean that you can’t pick up the phone once in a while and wish them well. Be sure you chip away at any negativity that may surface during this process.

In fact, eliminate all negativity in your life as much as possible: beliefs, thoughts, music, violent video games, gossip, complaining…all these things can dramatically hinder your progress on your journey.

I used to love listening to the band Slayer. They were my favorite band for years. But, sadly, I realized that the “power” I felt when listening to them was actually a result of the addiction that I’ve formed with the anger in the music.

Again, there’s nothing “wrong” or “bad” about many of these things. It’s okay to indulge in certain things in a balanced way. There’s nothing wrong with appreciating varied experiences…just make sure they’re not weighing down your faith-based perspective in life.

If you have any doubt as to whether something is weighing you down, then simply give it up for a month and see if your life becomes better. You’ll notice things like increased energy, more happiness, better focus, more abundance, higher quality relationships and interactions with others, etc.

smokingweedThings like coffee, beer, weed, cigarettes, hallucinogens, caffeine, artificial food ingredients, masturbation, sex, gambling, etc. can really take their toll on your health and energy levels if you let them get out of control. Too much of anything, whether it’s “bad” or “good” will almost definitely lower your vibration, thus impacting your ability to maintain and develop an Extreme Faith Mentality.

So, how much is too much? Well, that’s up to you to decide.

For me, I find it most helpful to quit an addiction completely for a month’s time in order to see how it was affecting my life. From there, I can better gauge a balance that doesn’t infringe on my clarity and connection with myself and God.

I’ll be honest with you, comrade. I used to be addicted to coffee, beer, weed, cigarettes, masturbation, pornography, sex, video games, television, gossip, complaining, arguing, and more. But as I write this, I’m happy to say that I’ve broken every single one of these addictions.

The most I do now is drink tea a couple times a day and the occasional cup of coffee. And I’m even beginning to think that these things need to go.

Today, I’ve reached a level of sobriety that I would have never thought was possible. And, lemme tell ya…the effects are noticeable…for sure. I feel better all around. Stronger, more alive, more focused, more disciplined…the list goes on and on. But the craziest side effect of sobriety is that I feel more…deserving.

Now that I live a totally “clean-cut” lifestyle (I even cut off my long hair not too long ago), I feel like I’m more entitled to the happiness I want in life.

I never would have thought that having one drink every night, for example, could actually affect my abundance, relationships, happiness, and success. But it did.

If you would have told me five years ago that I’d be where I am now, I wouldn’t have believed you. I probably would have called myself a “pussy” or something similarly derogatory.

I used to be the guy who said baloney like, “Aww, c’mon, there’s nothing wrong with weed…it’s God’s gift to humans…blah blah…”

Don’t get me wrong, weed is awesome. But it quickly begins to become NOT awesome when you form an addiction to it.

The “addictive” mindset can have a negative impact on your life, even if the addiction is met infrequently. The best medicine is total abstinence of whatever substance or activity you’re craving.

justsayno

Of course, if you don’t want to give up your addiction, that’s cool too. No need to pressure yourself, beat yourself up, feel guilty, or feel ashamed. If your resistance to quitting is still high, then continue to do whatever it is you’re doing. The worst thing you can do is stress out about it. Don’t worry, comrade…God loves you unconditionally. Believing that fact is part of the EFM mindset.

So take your time and make sure you’re ready to drop the addiction. And keep gently reminding yourself of the benefits of quitting every time it crosses your mind.

It all comes down to how much you want to experience the best that life has to offer. What are you willing to give up to have an amazing life? What inessentials are you willing to carve out in order to have the success that you want…the relationships you want…the happiness your soul desires?

It’s a slow process, definitely. But when you finally break an addiction to something, you immediately begin to see just how much that addiction was holding you back…draining you of your Power and Energy.

So let me ask you this…what is that one thing that you know is holding you back?

Go on. Pick something that you know deep down inside is limiting your potential in life. You probably don’t even have to think about it. You probably already know immediately what it is.

We all have addictions in life…to people, substances, behaviors, activities, thoughts…

Pick something right now and give it up for a month. You will see that the gifts you receive without it are far greater than you could ever experience with this addiction as a fixture in your life.

manifestationResistanceFor a complete list of all of these addictions/traps, please read my Amazon #1 Bestseller, Manifestation Resistance.

If it isn’t essential, chances are you don’t need it.

Just get rid of it. Your life will be better. I promise.

Simplify and you will find Peace.

Step #4 – Always Follow Your Heart

The final step for mastering EFM is to always listen to your gut. Trust your instincts.

I’ve noticed that a many folks, myself included, have had a lot of trouble doing this.

I would always ask things like “How do you follow your heart?” or “How can you tell it’s your heart talking?”

The best answer I’ve come up with is:

You already know.

Seriously. You already know.

If you’re asking it’s because you want mental confirmation about what you already know to be true deep down inside.

And that gut feeling…that gut “instinct” if you will…might be telling you to do something that your brain knows is crazy.

Everyone around you might think you’re “nuts”, “foolish”, or “ignorant”.

That’s okay, comrade. They can think what they want. Let them.

This is YOUR life. And it’s nobody’s business but yours and God’s.followyourheart

God is actively calling you to something that you desire deep down. And if you’re not willing to go with the flow to get it, then you’re clearly demonstrating that you don’t have faith.

EFM means listening to the quiet voice inside you. It means following your instincts to wherever they may lead you…even if it’s in a big circle…

…even if it’s to a scary place.

The EFM master is not afraid to follow the heart. The heart somehow already knows where you want to end up.

I’m not going to say much more about this. I just want to add one final thing…

…one day you’re going to die…

…and when you’re sitting on your deathbed, one of two things is going to happen:

You’ll smile, peacefully, with the satisfaction of knowing you lived a bold and amazing life.

-OR-

You’ll shudder with despair as your flesh grows cold and you inhale for the final time, bearing the pain that there’s nothing you can do about it now. Death has consumed you…and the game is over.

deathbed

Whatever you do, comrade…don’t let these fools live your life for you. They’re going to try.

Trust me, they’re going to try. If you don’t believe me, then I invite you to read my personal memoir When Wisdom Whispers: The Art of Following Your Heart to a Life You Love.

If I had listened to others, I would have literally killed the most precious thing in my life. I would have aborted the life of my daughter.

babymuffinbabymuffin2

Because I listened to my heart, I now have the most amazing gift that life could ever offer: a beautiful, incredible family with the most loving wife and precious daughter imaginable.

Tears of joy and happiness emerge from a recent family baptism ceremony.
Tears of joy and happiness emerge from a recent family baptism ceremony.

These people complete my life…and I have no idea where I’d be without them.

daddyandbaby

Don’t listen to the person who tells you what they think you should do…

…listen to the person who encourages you to do what you already know is in your heart.

Do this…comrade…and you’re well on your way to becoming a master of EFM.

A Story that Nicely Illustrates EFM (told by Alan Watts):

This is a great story that really helps solidify the Wisdom that I have offered in this article. Please watch it when you can spare a couple minutes.

 
Signs that you’re developing EFM:

Just like “The Matrix”, EFM is hard to describe. Extreme Faith must be experienced in order to know it for certain…and, even then, it proves to be quite an elusive creature.

Nevertheless, here are some important signs of EFM that you can easily spot:

Fear begins to become your friend. It becomes increasingly easy for you to face head-on those things that would have utterly terrified you before.

You begin to grow comfortable with uncertainty and you lose attachment to notions like “safety”, “security”, and “predictability”.

You pick up a book, read one chapter, and then decide not to finish it because you’ve already gained the clue your soul was searching for. Or, you pick up a book that you’re extremely motivated to finish, only to read a few words that impact you so dramatically that you must put down the book in order to ponder them.

You hear several marketers all tell you that you need to do ‘X’ for your business to succeed. But you know in your heart that, although this strategy has worked for them, it isn’t for you.

You’re driving to a particular destination, perhaps a friend’s house, when a quiet voice chimes, “Hey, why don’t you stop for a minute and appreciate the beauty of those plants?”

A sinfully tempting woman provocatively seduces you, causing you great arousal and excitement…you feel strangely compelled to walk away from the encounter despite her extreme charm and outward affection.

A coworker who isn’t fond of your high performance at work or your persistently pleasant demeanor decides that he’s had enough of you. He frames you by telling your boss lies about you and implanting falsified evidence in your workstation to validate his claims. Your boss has a meeting with the “higher-ups” and the company decides to let you go. Instead of dwelling on the tragedy, you thank God in advance for the next, better opportunity he has prepared for you.

A stranger cuts you off on the highway, making you spill your drink in your new car. Then, he flips you off and speeds away. At this point your blood is boiling and every ounce of you wants that man to die. You even feel compelled to break the speed limit to catch up to him and cut him off in return. But you don’t…and instead you take a deep breath, forgive him, say a prayer for him, and then cast Holy White Light on his vehicle.

In a crazy turn-of-events, you computer shuts off right in the middle of a project you were working on, causing you to lose everything you’ve been working on for the last three hours. You start chuckling aloud, knowing that the work you were doing must not have been that good. You say to yourself, “Okay, thanks, Universe. I’ll go ahead and make it even better.”

You have a strict policy of never giving money to homeless people. Yet, for some reason, a lowly woman catches your eye and captures your heart. You decide to give her $5, stopping to chat with her before moving onto your next destination.

You see a stranger that you feel strangely compelled to talk to. Even though the circumstances render it highly socially awkward, you decide to go up and strike a conversation anyway. As it turns out, you’re greeted with an enormous warmth and you end up learning something magnificent about your life.

Your best friend is starting to show disapproval about your new path in life. You love this person dearly, but you sense that their presence in your life is keeping you from some important truth. You voluntarily begin to peacefully depart, even though it hurts at first. You still say hello and wish this person well from time to time.

Your spouse is screaming at you for something that you had no idea was happening. Instead of reacting defensively, you reiterate their feelings and sympathize with their current state of mind. Despite their best attempts to bring you down, you love the person instead. And, in no time at all, you find that the argument is now completely diffused and you have your loved one back in your arms again.

 

Tips for Maintaining EFM

1) Be absolutely clear on your reasons for developing EFM

2) Have a lofty goal/vision for the future, form a burning desire for its achievement, and rely on EFM to help get you there

3) Find a comrade who will help keep you in check so that you do not deviate too far from the path

4) Withdraw from addictive behaviors like drinking too much coffee, sleeping in/pressing snooze, unnecessarily spending money, eating unhealthily

5) Always be willing to “go with the flow” even though in the moment it doesn’t quite seem apparent why

6) Pay attention to subtle clues that surround you; develop a heightened sensitivity of the world around you

7) Engage in prayer, practice mindfulness, allow the floodgates of gratitude to open up in your life

      Yes, just be gentle comrade. Even the highest wisdom is useless if the receiver is not willing.

    I will have to say that this article is extremely well done! I have never heard of EFM and now after reading this article i will have t admit that I already need some EFM in my life. I have realized a few years back that I fell off my disciplined life and instead had become undisciplined. I began to crack once the negative began to crack my weak shell. Once they got in my whole world began to be filled with confusions and distractions.

    I began to become disgusted with myself! For falling for the facade of modern society always wasting my time chasing ghosts like the rest of everyone out there.

    My mind was chained my body was chained! It was not until recently that I decided it was time for me to get out and become free!

    How do you become free? Well believe that to be free is just something that people enjoy in their physical world but its also something people will need to believe in their mind as well! You see they can tie you down, ridicule you and everything else you can think of. But your mind! Your mind cannot be controlled!

    In the end it is your mind that is free! So if your mind is free your life is free!

    Great post D/C

    While I don’t agree with everything you have written here, I did get a lot from it and thanks for writing it.

    If you’ve never found it before i recommend (some) of the articles on stevepavlina.com, particularly his stuff on state of mind and spirit.

    Thanks!

    This article really resonates with me. “EDM” as you refer to is is a state of mind I feel I’ve been trying to reach all my life. I’ve been through a lot of hardship in recent years due to people with very low and “hungry” energy trying to take from me until there is nothing left. It broke me down to the point where I existed as just a zombie, going through the motions of my pointless torture of a life. It took things coming to the end of the line, and me nearly dying for me to change, and now I’m so filled with rage articulate thought is impossible when i think back to those days.

    My answer was to just fight my way through life. Going from struggling to survive to taking all that force and pushing forward was a simple change. It may not be the most healthy answer, but it is mine.

      Pain is a tremendous teaching tool. forces us to reevaluate things.

      Don’t worry comrade. Forgive and release.

      There are no answers…only what resonates with you at any given point.

      In that sense, everyone is already doing the best they can.

      Just keep questing gracefully, comrade…because what works for you now is the best that you can get.

      Thanks for the nice comment.

      Blessings to you.

    Hi D/C

    I just discovered your website on the HD manifestor site on FB – a wealth of information from people who speak my language – amazing how easy it is for me to read through all this and feel resonance. Being a 6/2 manifestor who is emerging or as they say “coming of the roof” this is just so timely and so deeply in alignment with the awakening process I am going through.
    I am reading through your articles, most all of them and see what fits and how another manifestor goes through life with the knowledge that we have from HD and the unique experience of not having the leisure to just wait until life happens – we make it happen.

    I have been having downloads on the hugeness of what it means to be a manifestor, how we actually really create the universe/world and what responsibility it is to co-create with the Gods – and I mean really that I saw the co-creational process that we manifestors initiate and how our peace affects the peace of the entire world when we create from this place of deep alignment.
    I am learning as a single mom to balance my energy and not continue the hamster wheel that has led me to a burnout – greatest gift ever in hindsight though – that is leading me to this next step of awakening at 49.

    So just know how grateful I am for all your insights and for sharing them – we all get insights and if we don’t share them, what purpose do they serve – and as a 6/2 role model / hermit the balance is vital.

    I share your insights and apply them with mine – perfect co-creation – as I go along with what life is offering me.
    This is a big time of transition, and clearing out the energy channels to create and manifest in peace is THE most important tip I follow to stay healthy and sane.

    Thanks for all you bring – cheers to more brother!

    With gratitude
    Priya

      Thanks for your nice words. I’m really glad my materials were able to help you. I promise to keep sharing my perspective from the deepest place of honesty that’s possible. It was very inspirational to me when you said that we manifestors must learn to bring forth our energy from a place of peace. Also a great reminder and thank you very much for your nice comments.
