What Will Allowing Trust, Love and Appreciate Do Over Time?

What Will Allowing Trust, Love and Appreciate Do Over Time?

Again as I sit here ready to write this, having examined myself and my surrounding which then leads me to this new abundant way of thinking, but it also has come up in me by reading many of my past entries here on this blog. Many of these things that I’ve written to you have continued to pursue forward in my life. So much so I know the power of written word, the spoken word and the like. But it shouldn’t be of any real amazement to me, because I’ve been taught this power long ago by amazing mentors and yet, here I am, in wonderment of my situation, yet again, with tears of joy in my eyes.

I am so happy and grateful now that I realize my power and that the world that I live in is beckoning for my will and it’s SAFE to do so. With no gripes or complaints, it’s all here, I ask and it’s given. At this point I still live in Hakata in Fukuoka, Japan with my girlfriend Leti, but now the amazing friends that we’ve made here have pushed me further and further, finding the perfect business associates, perfect loving friends, perfect loving romantic relationships and from here I feel I’m looking down from a mountain such as Chomolungma seeing the epic journey that was started so many many years ago with a thought, a desire, a feeling.

I find myself to be so attuned with Japanese life and the Japanese that it’s becoming odd to me. I’ve traveled the world putting on rave events since I was in my early 20’s, so many years I’d be out of the country, traveling, moving to new areas… everything so new all the time. But here I am still, in Hakata with my girlfriend, with my new romances, with my new friends still going to school to continue studying Japanese. I’m finding that Japan is now becoming more and more comfortable, so much so, I sat here for awhile and realized, that, Japan IS my home now. I’ve never felt like I’ve had a solid home, not like this. When I was a early year teenager I was always moving, never becoming familiar with anything, just floating, floating, floating.

Now I’m making friends, real friends, friends that are such on a deep level of trust and love with me that I couldn’t have asked for a better attraction of love and friendship. Yet, perhaps I didn’t ask through my words perse, perhaps I asked through my love and appreciation of the life I’m living, THE FEELINGS that I’ve learned to harness and to focus into new and amazing entities of power. Since I’ve been in Japan and meeting my new friends, I ran into a wonderful young social marketing expert when I arrived, not only that she is a market research expert and she has made the difference for my girlfriend and I to finally REALLY grasp understanding Ecommerce on a level I didn’t think I would have ever understood. Last time I really noted to my monthly income it was a little above $1 million dollars a month in a gross income, since then it’s more than tripled. My income that I get to keep and stash in the bank for whatever I want AFTER taxes is now just a bit shy of $1 million USD per month. Again, it’s not like I continue to do what I’m doing because I NEED money, I do it for the challenge, I do it for the good will, I do it for the love and the appreciate of KNOWING that anything is in grasp.

I’ve been able to stay in Japan up until about 6 months ago purely on the amounts of cash I can throw at lawyers here in Japan. But since I live in Fukuoka where it’s the only city/prefecture in Japan that offers a “Start Up” Visa, I was able to procure the 6 month Visa despite that I didn’t NEED it, I only needed the time. Our new market researcher Lila is so amazing that we’ve been able to drive new business and products to and from Fukuoka, Japan.

But what I find amazing and what I love about this wondrous and mystical land is that I can leave at 2am in the morning to a konbini (Convenience store) and actually buy food and whatever I want that’s 1000% safer then even eating organic food in America. It’s crazy. But while I was walking to the konbini tonight, I didn’t ride my bike, I walked, something I’ve not done in awhile. I enjoyed the spectacle of snow bouncing through the glowing lights of the city. Fukuoka rarely really gets much snow, but lately it’s been cold enough to really see it layer a tiny bit of the walk way, but I loved it! The wind picked up and threw my hair about as if I was in an anime, which made me feel like I am truly a Japanese citizen now! Perhaps that seems weird, that I as walked down the road, witness the regular sights and sounds of Japan that I would feel this way and it would be cemented.

The taxi cab driver resting on the side of his cab near a park, smoking a cigarette, the woman covered from head to toe riding her bike down the road besides me as the shinkasen passed by to the right slowly moving to it’s final destination of Hakata Eki, the gusts and howling of the wind pushing gently against me as cold shards of snow hit my eye lids. I’m so grateful to be here and stay and in a way find my true home amongst people, a place I never thought I would find as home to a introverted individual such as myself when I was a child.

By being here I’ve discovered that my love and appreciation for my friends, my family the people around me has and continues to grow… people I know and people I don’t are in my heart in such a profound way that it’s hard to describe, it’s a journey to get here, every time I feel at the top of my game I continue to get higher and higher. I accept the challenges moving forward, my goals now are to generate over $10 million in commerce each month in the next 18 months. Watch this space because I’m going to do it.

If you have dreams and goals write about them! Do everything you can to FEEL these emotions of love and appreciation and love the people around you despite the dark moments, these moments are tests from yourself, pass them… people will seem to test you for your love, pass them… because they are YOUR tests, your family or past friends may help you or not, but love them and TRUST that whatever is to come it is YOUR tests, it is YOUR will that is coming through.

The shit we live in is because we didn’t trust ourselves… with ourselves. We didn’t trust, we didn’t believe in our goals strong enough, we didn’t appreciate and love those around us strong enough. You can forgive and not need to be in peoples life that abuse you, but the hate and lack of trust is what will keep us down in the dirt. I moved out of my comfort zone and it took me a LONG time, but here I am… living what many people would call a King or Queens DREAM life, and I would say, you’re right, but at this people I feel more connected to everyone else around me at all times, I do not feel as if my income has peeled my away from my humanity, in fact it has increased my love in humanity and my sympathy and trust and love in all those I walk with… If I ride the train, I ride it as regular human being, except I know things beyond the scope of how most people live, by my own desire at this point is seeing and knowing ALL of them CAN HAVE WHATEVER THEY WANT! I see them capable and I celebrate their successes if I happen to hear it in passing, or see an expression of romantic love pass a young or older woman’s face, or the the feeling that exudes from a young man heart having accomplished something great, or better yet, fallen in love and his trust in the future is so bright, so wonderful that it brightens every bodies day in which he passes if they realized it or not. These are the wonders of the world in which we live, ourselves, our time now, this space.

TRUST & LOVE but Bring Your Courage!

My mentors recently have really dug deep with me and exposed more interesting information about the world in yet we live and this world we live in is SOOO amazing it would make most people reading this not believe it and try to debunk it. But to come down to the truth of this: I asked when I was a child to KNOW the truth about the land we live, the reality, the matrix if you will… I’ve gotten that, I’m living in MY dream land of Japan, I have my own business that’s extremely successful with my loves, enjoying an amazing intimate relationship with them that I’ve never experienced ever before, I am very close to being fluent in Japanese JLPT – N2 and I now feel like I have a home and I love how I gain new close friendships CONSTANTLY being here in Japan. On top of all this more and more layers of truth continue to show themselves to me and with every passing layer of trust and truth my life gets bright and more exciting.

An amazing life requires being able to see past your shit… but still love and no matter what ALWAYS come back to loving, trusting and having a goal for your life and those around you. YOU are the leader of your life despite whose in front of the pack, you are responsible for the success of everyone in your clan, be it happiness, love/romance, money or the like, continue to discover ways to love, appreciate and FEEL the absolute best you can. I’m living proof that working through the dark years of life YOU WILL come out on the other side better then you could ever have without the trust, love and the WILL power of your dream and goals.

Free Yourself From Fear – The Solution is Your Solution!

How to Get Rid of FearThe Solution to Fear and My First Experience of Winning

by: Elli Sanders

first posted here

Sometimes I think about what my life would have been like if I let fear drive me away from my dreams. What if I decided to give into feeling insecure about meeting new mentors, reaching out for help, attempting new things? I think about this possibility to give me a wake up to examine my world a little bit more deeply. Perhaps I’m allowing fear to take it’s toll somewhere in my life right now as I write this, that’s keeping me in a holding pattern. So as I sit here thinking about this right now as I write this, I’m already uncovering little areas of my life where I feel insecure and a bit off from my regular pattern of life. My life is so absolutely amazing and I’ve been blessed. But I will not say that the all things I have learned are something I can take credit for, the only thing I can take credit for is that I trusted my mentors and I listened to their advice, and better yet I took what they said and ran with it. As uncomfortable as it felt when I first started, I wouldn’t trade one second of it looking back.

We humans are certainly interesting creatures of habit, and those habits can certainly be good or they can be harmful. When I was younger before I had mentors I had several patterns that certainly pushed me out of the ‘in’ crowd in school and in life in general. My take the backseat mentality was surely turning me into someone who would not have enjoyed their life if they kept that attitude. But chances happen that I actually ran into a gal (through a really complex set of attractions) who ended up being my mentor when I was about 13. She ran a retail store and did many other things like drop shipping. She taught me certain habits to start forming when it came to creating my life how I wanted it.

I remember the first time she requested to see me at a function that she was running for other Strong professional business woman in Denverwomen who she also was mentoring in business and life. It was conference in Denver, Colorado. The year was most likely 1998 or so. She requested that I came but it wasn’t anything like a demand. It was a quick, “Yeah, you should show up” with an intense eye gaze. I had about 2 so weeks to really make up my mind on what I was going to do. You see I was a very introverted young lady, and I had very few friends, and looking back, I’d say I had pretty much no friends.

So to dress up, and take the bus down into Denver by myself and find this place where the conference was taking place and to mingle with people, was WAY out of my comfort zone. So much so, I had decided not to go, up until about 6 hours before the event was going to take place. Now, you’ll have to imagine with me that you are a young adult that’s never really had a friend, never had to be present for anything, had to travel alone and had to meet with a very powerful and at that time intimidating business woman. I was literally sitting in the corner on a brown rocking chair where I was staying at the time, almost in tears. Because I felt hopeless, lost and scared. I didn’t know how to combat these fears in my head. I sat there saying to myself that I wouldn’t ever be able to free myself of, myself.

I had to find a way to fight this fearMy fear was so strong, so intense, beating down on me, tensing every muscle in my body so much that I couldn’t even bring myself to cry. The thing is at the same time I was seeing myself see what I was fearing. What was it? It was movement, it was me having to start something, it was me having to have a purpose, it was me no longer fighting the will of my fate. You see while I sat there and thought about these things, I decided that I was no longer going to let my fear take me over and demand that I live a life of normality, because normality is not going to bring you fulfillment, it’s not going to lead you to your finest hour, it’s not going to allow you to see the mountain in which you are suppose to climb in your life time. It’s going to stop you from feeling the best of all feelings, to experience the world in a way that’s truly magical, free and safe. You’re life in normality is dangerous, as it leads to apathy and loathing of the worlds gifts. It leads good people to see things as scams, lies and deceit and because of that, that’s what people will end up attracting in their field of mental observation. When normality sets in, it’s like a parasite that will feed on all things in it’s reality that is pure and good. It’s complacency, it’s judgement, it’s a thought that brings the colorful world down to low roar within a gray scale, it’s fantasy that is only lived through ones mind, it’s the dulling of the senses and as much as we would like to believe, we are not going to find happiness in these traits.

But with all these things pacing my mind, it still did not have the thunder in which I needed to see myself actually pulling myself up and setting through my door to catch the bus I needed to catch in less then 1 hour at that time. Now, before I reveal the secret to eliminating fear, I’d like for you to think of possibly a time when you had something similar happen. Really think about it. How did the movie play out in your head? What did it look like? If you’re like any other human being in the world, you played out your fear in your head over and over and over. You could say that while playing this fear out in your head, it always seemed to hit one spot. The end!

The end is basically you not having a solution or an understanding of anything that would come afterward in your mind. You see the brain and mind immediately will begin to fear a problem when there is no solution to it. So the solution is to give your brain and mind one. What this means basically is that your mind most of the time is being completely irrational, and at the same time this causes fear. But why couldn’t you use your minds irrational state in a positive way?

1. When you’re in fear and you are playing that movie over and over in your head. Simply play the rest of it out how you’d like to see it. Even if it’s a bit brash or ridiculous, you’ll notice as you start to play with this idea of flowing through your dead end fear, you begin to notice that your muscles will start to relax. This is something you do not have to force, as long as you are pushing through that movie and seeing yourself raise out of that depression, that fear or that hate or prejudice you might have, you’re brain will see that the you are not permanently screwed, and because of that, you will no longer die a thousand deaths for no reason.

2. Using irrational beliefs to free yourself from fear is absolutely a crucial way to gain control over your life, and in fact, if you use this technique to your advantage, you’ll not only smash that fear bug out of yourself almost completely, you’ll begin to actually become a practitioner of practical magic. What I mean by that is this.

Example: As a child you may be afraid of the dark, you make up irrational truths about the world that there is a dark scary monster that only shows up in your room and lurks over you while you sleep at night. So as what happens with most kids they will except this truth and have a hell of a time sleeping for quite a while in their life because of this irrational fear. But there are some kids who learned by accident that they can use their irrational beliefs to free themselves from fear. These are the kids who then tell their mind and their brain that their covers are magical, and that when they are under them, nothing can enter in through them and they shine a bright light off of them that is invisible to them, but the monsters get scared of the light and run off. You can use the same idea to fill in gaps in your life that you are fearful of. Such as if you have a child who is starting to drive, you can imagine that there is a force field of protection that surrounds them and the car when they are out driving. This is real magic that really works! And it eliminates fear too!

So as you can see, this is all ridiculous, BUT. You can also see that it’s beneficial too!

So, as I sat there, almost in tears, thinking about my future lives, I first decided to see my life and what it could look like if I gave into the fear I was feeling and to not enter out into the world by myself, and what my life could look like if I overcame this fear. At first, while thinking about not doing it, I saw myself hitting a wall, over and over again in my mind. Playing the same thing over and over again, with no trust, no conviction and because of that, I was playing the ‘Permanently Screwed Video’ over and over again. Then I decided to walk on the wild side, and saw myself get up, get dressed, run out the door down the street to the bus stop, get on the bus, get off a few stops and back on until I finally made it into Denver. I then saw myself get off the bus, walk down the street to the hotel this function was at, and with a strong straight back I fixed my hair and threw it over my shoulder and entered into the hotel with my head held high. All the while, feeling absolutely terrified in my thought about this, but, it had turned into something different, the fear was no longer intimidating, it had turned into something else.

How to fight fear and win every timeThe best way to describe the difference in this fear, was what you could feel while working out. This ‘pain’ was exhilarating it was fresh and vibrant and colorful. And when I saw myself set into that hotel room in my mind. A world of colors exploded into my vision, I had broken down the gates of my fear and realized it was nothing I couldn’t handle. At that moment, I saw I very brief glimpse of my life in which I’m living to this day. My extreme confidence (I run a traveling rave club all over Asia), my over flow of giving and sharing with the world, my experiences and my love for life. I honestly can not totally put into words what I felt once I went through those gates. But it was like heaven opened up it’s and allowed me through, as I threw off fear of ‘what if‘ and allowed myself to start healing from fear.

Fear is the great taker of lives and dreams. In my current life, I still battle with fear at times, but it’s nothing I ever back down from. Now, do I always win so effortlessly? No, thusly why I write, I meditate, I reflect and I use this technique of removing fear and doubt from my life. You’re never permanently screwed, never will be, there is more opportunity in life and death and in all situations that you could never say that in any circumstance that you’re not going to make it through. There is a lot to do, a lot to learn and as we continue to move forward with our live(s) (more then one), we will continue stack our experiences from this life to the next.

I use to fear that all these wonderful secrets and moments that I’m learning and experiencing in this life time would be for nothing, as I reincarnated / changed focus into another life. But as stated here, I discovered that isn’t so, it was just me being irrational. Energy can not be destroyed and all thoughts, vibrations and events that I live now, will forever carry forward not just in my soul, but through the world that I’ll leave from this body. Things are going to keep moving no matter what, and I can visit with anyone from my past or present (from this life, my past life or my next life), by simply dissolving fear and using that all too famous irrational human brain to conjure up anything I wish, anything I desire, in anyway I want.

We live in a world of irrationality, and many times people will succumb to allowing their irrational beliefs literally kill their dreams and them. But those who use irrationality to their advantage, they are the ones changing the world. Fear is the devils hands in your pockets, helping you twiddle your thumb at the opportunities that circle you, with that knowledge you have to become something more. Become a great movie maker, become irrational if you need to be in a good way. But make sure you start catching yourself when you start to fret, stress or fear.

Find out what's more important to then suffering alone in fear
When I asked my mentor many years later why she decided to give me a shot. She mentioned that it was I who called out for her, and she knew with all her heart that I had the strength to meet that challenge. As stated here in my story I had that strength to push through, but she is the one who gave me that platform in which to stand on, she believed in me so much, even without knowing me at that time, that I still to this day believe she helped me pull out of my stupor and find my way to her. A mentor is a power ally, never under estimate those came before you and what they know could help you… But, also don’t give up your gut feelings, because even when they are wrong, they teach you a lot, and you very well may need to be wrong at times. Your mentors can’t eat your lunch for you, remember that, you still need to put in the work. But, I wouldn’t trade having a mentor for anything. Since then, I’ve run into a lot of other mentors who continued to help me tweak my fear removal processes, which I will teach in my news letter as well as in future articles.

Practical Magic

held your hand so gently as they stole.

Stole the will and the happiness,

throughout their fantasy world,
inveigled were your dreams!

As you bled your heart,
you asked god for more.

As you waited for an answer,
fear sat too,
as opportunities circled around you.

daring dreams don’t stay quiet.

Notice this fear you feel,
it’s the tantalizing growth of more,
enticing your dreams your brilliance and,
your destiny.

you’ll move not a limb,
but climb a mountain,
and from the top you will see,
a sparkling future awaiting,

Believe that it’s right,
to summon a dragon in flight,
while magicians cast darkness to your sight.

So that in this world they create,
fear will be vanquished.

Leaving you free,
from normality,

to algorithmic and sesimic lore,
finding their source through your mind,
by your own fantasies that align.
