Having the knowledge is nothing without action.
You may be familiar with the saying that "knowledge is power" - unfortunately that's not quite true. You could read everything here, gain the knowledge but still not see any improvements in your life. That's because "Action is Power", not knowledge. To reap the benefits of these techniques you must put them into action. It will only take you 10 - 15 minutes a day, but they will likely be the most powerful and stimulating 15 minutes.
Let's get started with some Magic Hats.
The process I'm going to explain is more widely known as The Magic Hats Program - there's 5 steps and 5 different colored hats - all of which are very powerful and highly effective.
Step 1. Self Hypnosis. Self Hypnosis is the secret door to controlling your mind. You'll learn how to place yourself in a deep state of complete relaxation. Even within the first few minutes of this step you'll start to feel more energised and a lot happier.
Step 2. Modalities. Your modalities are your modes of thinking - or how your brain recalls past memories. Have you ever smelt a familiar smell and almost immediately recalled the memory of where you were and what you were doing when you first encountered that smell. Or looked at an old photo and had the memories come flooding back? We remember our past experiences through our senses - just like this.
Step 3. Swish Patterns. This is simply a method where we replace one emotion with another. So if we are experiencing a negative emotion, it's a method we use to replace it with a positive and happy emotion.
Step 4. Anchors. Not the ones on ships, but those in your mind. When you experience a happy, powerful or positive emotion, it gets anchored into your subconscious by means of an anchor - like a familiar smell or an old photo. By selecting an anchor to use for the positive emotion we are experiencing we are able to recall that emotion at anytime we wish.
Step 5. Being aware of how your mind operates. Most people have no idea or understanding of how they operate or how their mind controls them. Here you take control of your mind and you start to call the shots as to how you function and how you feel about things.
Learn to Relax on Demand
Most people hardly ever relax - even when they're asleep, they're still tense and under stress. Our bodies operate and function best when we are relaxed. We can think more clearly, we feel better, and are much more fun to be around. So the first and most vital lesson is learning how to fully relax - and you'll be amazed at how easy it is.
Find a comfortable chair, and sit down with your back straight, feet flat on the floor and the base of your spine pushed back into the chair (this helps you sit up straight).
1. Place your right hand on your stomach where you belt buckle sits (or would sit if you're not wearing a belt).
2. Take a deep breath in and push out your stomach muscles allowing your lungs to start expanding into your stomach area - this helps fill your lungs from the bottom allowing you to get much more air into them. Continue to inhale filling the top of your lungs as well. When you can't breathe in anymore, hold your breath for a slow count of 6.By holding your breath, you ensure your lungs can extract the maximum amount of oxygen from the air and get it into your bloodstream.
3. Now breathe out slowly for a count of 6 and suck in your stomach muscles as far as you can at the same time. This helps expel the maximum amount of air from your lungs ready for the next deep breath in. Once you have exhaled, hold your breathe for another slow count of 6.
4. Do it all over again and repeat for between 6 and 12 times.
So the process is: Push out stomach and breathe in - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6; Hold breath - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6; Suck in stomach and breathe out - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6; Hold breath - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6; Repeat 6 - 12 times.
After you've finished you may feel a little dizzy or light headed. This is natural and is simply because you are now very relaxed and have highly oxygenated blood.
So, how do you feel? Nicely relaxed and invigorated? Great, then let's move on. I've run out of space here, but the rest of the program can be downloaded from http://magic-hats.com. The rest of the program takes about 15 - 20 minutes so go get your copy now - there's some very effective tips about how to build self confidence and overcome frustrations that you can start to use right now.
