I would like to share a story of a personal breakthrough which helped me to connect the dots to a blind spot that was limiting my success and happiness. My purpose in sharing this story is to help you achieve your own personal breakthrough so you can experience the feelings of success, happiness, and fulfillment.
I would like to express my sincere gratitude and appreciation to two mentors and change agents that helped with this breakthrough. I would like to pay attribution and thanks to David Neagle and Dr Robert Anthony for my breakthrough. Dr Anthony provided the tools to help me recondition my belief system, and David was the catalyst that helped me to ask the right questions, so I could connect the dots. I immersed myself in both of your teachings over the last week, and did the “inner” process work required to become a “reinvented version” of myself. I am confident that I will continue to grow and evolve as a person.
It all began with a simple question. What am I resisting? As I continued to ask myself this question over and over, the answer finally came to me in a moment of clarity through the words I was typing on the computer. One thought led to another thought, and pretty soon the answer was starring me in the face.
I became aware that I was resisting the belief that I could be happy and successful because of the previous failures in the past, and my perceived ability to change in the present moment. After a week of self-exploration I came to the realization that my belief system (BS) was based on an inaccurate map of reality, and a set of beliefs that were handed down to me from previous generations. These beliefs were filled with negative and self-limiting programming. Now that I have a new awareness of the truth, I can consciously choose a new map of reality based on healthy and empowering thoughts and a new unlimited belief system. Becoming aware of this truth has certainly set me free!
This breakthrough has helped to rebuild my self confidence and my ability to become resilient to any challenges that come my way. As a result, I am consciously aware of my inner resourcefulness. Through a reprogramming and reconditioning process, my subconscious and conscious minds are now working together using an empowering belief system. A belief system that is emotionally moving me towards a common purpose in fulfilling my intentions!!!
Despite all the self-limiting beliefs, negativity, hatred and suffering in the world, I believe that over time our world will continue to grow and evolve through our individual awareness and our collective consciousness. We are living in an unprecedented time of accelerated expansion and growth. I believe that in a relatively short amount of time, the world will reach a critical mass of awareness of the false belief system that was handed down from generation to generation which was limiting our growth and development. I also believe that in a relatively short amount of time, the world will have the understanding, tools, and ability to change these beliefs for the better.
I believe that we will become more peaceful, happy, and fulfilled as a species. Dr. Wayne Dyer so eloquently put it when he said. “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change” If we expand on that thought and change a few of the words we might come to a new realization about ourselves. “When we change the way we look at ourselves, the world that we look at will change”
I hope you found this story helpful as well as enlightening. I encourage you to ask yourself the question… What am I resisting? Please feel free to share your answers, insights, personal breakthroughs, and comments. I would love to hear what you have to say.
Love & Light,

I decided to write this article about an effective technique for healing and restoring the body to a healthy state. The technique that I’m referring to, is called transcendental meditation (TM) http://www.tm.org.. I recently learned how to meditate using this method about 6 months ago, and it has really helped me to reduce stress and promote healing. In a previous radio interview posted on this blog, I was interviewed by Mary Tracy O’Keefe and during the interview we discussed my experience with TM and how it works. If you’re interested in learning more about TM, the information in this radio interview will provide some insight.
Last night I came down with a cold, and today during my evening meditation I realized that I was practicing an effective technique for healing and restoring the body to a healthy state. I just need to allow it to work. When I finished my meditation I read an interesting article written by Linda Egenes posted on the TM magazine website www..tmmagazine.org. In the article titled A Quantum Approach to Chronic Pain and Disease Egenes states …
“According to the American Pain Foundation, an estimated 50 million Americans suffer from persistent pain each year. Second only to the common cold as a cause for sick leave, it is said to be the most expensive health problem today, with costs estimated at higher than $100 billion. A hallmark of many chronic conditions, pain affects more Americans than diabetes, heart disease, and cancer combined. Egenes goes on to say…
“While pain killers might offer relief, many have been taken off the market due to harmful side effects. Worse, pain medications don’t fix the problem that caused the pain in the first place. In fact, research shows that at least half of those who suffer from chronic pain do not find relief with medication. No wonder Americans are turning in droves to alternative therapies to deal with chronic pain. Some have found relief with a treatment known as Maharishi Vedic Vibration TechnologySM (MVVT), a non-medical approach for enlivening the body’s inner intelligence to heal chronic pain and underlying chronic disorders”
If you are interested in learning more about this amazing technology and scientific research that has been done you can visit http://www.vedicvibration.com
In her article she discusses Maharishi’s explanation of how it works….
“Maharishi explains that the body’s own inner intelligence guides the proper functioning of a healthy physiology. When the connection with this inner intelligence is lost, symptoms of ill health begin to appear. Maharishi Vedic Vibration Technology utilizes a refined impulse of Vedic sound, or Vedic vibration, to enliven the inner intelligence of the body and restore proper functioning”.
Whatever tools or technology you decide you use to promote healing and well-being, these two techniques are worth exploring. In the short time that I have been practicing TM, I have noticed a reduction in stress and my ability to heal. I’ll keep you posted on how quickly my head and chest cold takes to heal. I hope you find the information in this blog post helpful.

For example, combine pleasurable activities with something you don’t enjoy, like playing music while performing household tasks.

Removing Energy Blocks
By John Curran
I decided to write this article about removing energy blocks because I believe it can have a significant impact on your success. I was surfing one day on YouTube, and came across a remarkable video talking about energetic frequency and hidden energy blockages. As a self-empowerment coach I was particularly interested in how energy blockage can sabotage our success. I wanted to learn about where my hidden blockages were, so they could be removed and replaced with empowering beliefs. I also wanted to find a tool to help me serve my clients in the best way possible. As self-empowerment coach I can be susceptible to energy drain if I’m not aware of how I’m using my energy when helping others.
According to Christie Marie Sheldon who is an Intuitive Healer and Medium that specializes in raising people’s personal vibrations to a level of Love or Above www.loveorabove.com She says….
“Right now, the average level of energy on Earth is around 207 —and this is because throughout our lives, we accumulate hidden energy blockages and negative conditioning that holds us back from higher vibrations.
The level we should aim for, however, is 500 and above. 500 is the vibration of love. When you vibrate at this level life becomes drastically different. Love, joy, and abundance are suddenly within your grasp. Pain, stress, and struggle seem to melt away and you become a magnet for what you truly desire.
But here’s where things get even better. Studies have shown that your energy doesn’t just affect you, but those around you too. Just Google research articles on subjects like the Maharishi affect or distance healing”.
I recently started practicing transcendental meditation (TM) www.tm.org , so I’m familiar with the Maharishi affect on distance healing. I was fortunate enough to learn TM from an instructor who was personally trained by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the founder of the transcendental meditation program. Since I started practicing TM I have noticed that my stress level has been significantly reduced, and I have more energy, peace, creativity, and improved memory. The relationships in my life also seem to be enhanced. I appreciate all of the wonderful things in my life, and have gratitude for them. I certainly have challenges in life like we all do, but my response to them is much different these days. I have also started to combine by TM practice with some of the energy clearing tools that Christie Marie Sheldon offers to help me in removing energy blocks that have been hidden from me. She is quite a remarkable woman with a gift for removing energy blocks that are hidden from us. If you are interested in learning how to raise your energy level, and want to utilize tools for removing energy blocks, I would highly recommend checking out both of these resources. By regularly practicing TM and using the tools that Christie Marie Sheldon offers, you can raise your energetic frequency for success in the physical, emotional, spiritual relational, and financial areas of your life. As you raise your individual energetic level, you will also help to raise the energy level of the planet!
If I can be of service to you, please don’t hesitate to call my toll free number 877-243-6973 to schedule a complimentary “self-empowerment” session.

Removing Energy Blocks
By John Curran
As the end of the year is fast approaching, I thought it might be helpful to re-post an article I published a year or more ago about getting unstuck. At one time or other, most of us have had the feeling of being “stuck” . Dr. Timothy Butler, Senior Fellow and Director of Career Development Programs at Harvard Business School says “as psychologically painful as it is, is the first step to awareness of new opportunities in career and in life”. None of us like to admit that we’re stuck and need help because it’s painful to look at the weeds in our own garden. It’s much easier to ignore it or make excuses for not needing to change ourselves.
I remember reading an article in a blog post about being “stuck. They expressed it like this…Stuck is coming up with an infinite number of perfectly good reasons not to change. This is so true. How many times do we rationalize or make excuses for not changing our behavior or way of thinking? When I look back over the years at times in my life when I felt stuck, I usually came up with a large number of excuses and seemingly logical reasons for not changing. Have you ever done that? If you’re reading this article, there’s a good chance that you probably have. Okay, so let’s dive a little deeper, and review my previous article on getting unstuck! I hope you find this information valuable, and I hope something that I’ve said inspires you to use the tools, and make the changes you need to become unstuck. May the New Year bring you happiness and good fortune!
Do you want to get unstuck? Do you feel stressed out, or overwhelmed? If you continue doing the same things you’re doing now, where do you see yourself in 5-10 years from now?
It’s one of those questions many people will not confront until there is a significant amount of pain or stress in their life. As one of the staff writers for CNN Living writes in an article about getting unstuck…..
“Those questions can be daunting to answer on a personal level as well. In the midst of all your responsibilities, activities and projects, it’s sometimes hard to see the big picture and easy to become overwhelmed or feel like you’re lacking direction.
That’s where a life coach can come in.”
“If you are frustrated with an aspect of your life, not sure how to stop making the same choices you keep making or just want to have more happiness, peace of mind and passion — life coaching can do that for you,” says Rhonda Britten, founder of the Fearless Living Institute.
Life coaches specialize in areas like career transition, weight loss, life purpose, self-esteem and many others. They can inspire and offer support when clients need a boost in confidence, and help them decide which direction to take.
Pop Quiz: Are you off balance?
If life was uncomplicated and simple, then most people would be able to figure out how to move beyond their personal and professional challenges and do the things they know they should do. If we’re being totally honest, most of us can use all the help we can get.
Once again, that’s where a life coach can intervene.
If we are left to our own devices, how many of us would think about or set personal goals. Studies show that a small percentage of the population set goals. Studies also show that a large percentage of the people who set goals, went on to achieve them, and were happy and more fulfilled.
The reality is that most of us will do more for others than we will do for ourselves. It’s sad but true. Utilizing the services of a coach will get you to commit to things you know you need to do. A coach will get you to stretch beyond what you think is possible, even if it’s uncomfortable. They will get you to eat those fruits and vegetables you’re not eating. There are times when a coach plays the role of “good-cop bad-cop”, especially when it comes to holding clients accountable for their actions.
That’s where a life coach can help you get unstuck.
A life coach will help you design a plan to achieve those things, and will work with you to eliminate any obstacles or blocks that stand in your way. Their skills are about knowing the right questions to ask and having the right tools and techniques to empower you to find those answers within yourself. A Life Coach helps you connect your head and your heart in a way that transforms your passion for your dreams into action for your life.
Life coaching is gaining popularity.
According to this article published about life coaching in CNN Living back in 2007, the author states that…
“Life coaches are part of a growing profession. The International Coach Federation (ICF) says it has more than 12,000 members worldwide, or double the amount just five years ago. In a survey commissioned by the ICF last year, 16 percent said their coaching specialty is “life vision and enhancement,” the third most popular area behind executive and leadership coaching.
The survey also found that women make up more than half the clientele of professional coaches.”
The article also talks about a life coach named….
“Britten, who’s been a life coach for 12 years and was featured on the reality TV series “Starting Over,” says a typical client is age 35 to 55, is “at a crossroads, must make a decision and is sick of choosing out of safety and fear.”
As a life and business coach, I would agree with Britten’s statement about the typical client we see in our coaching practice, however, we work with people of all ages and challenges.
As the staff writer for CNN Living states in the final sentence of the article…
“Don’t expect a therapy session when you meet with a life coach. While some have a background in counseling, the process is different.”
So let’s talk about the process of life coaching compared to traditional therapy.
How is Coaching different from Therapy?
While the life coaching can be therapeutic, it is not therapy. Coaching is distinct from traditional therapy because it is not designed to address psychological issues. While emotional issues may arise, the primary focus of life coaching is to help you identify your goals, achieve them, and develop constructive habits and skills. There is little emphasis placed on the past with coaching, but instead the focus is on creating what you want now and in the future.”
