Be All You Can Be

By John Henderson

How many people reading this column are working and living their lives to their full potential? From talking to people on a daily basis, I would say the answer is about 1%. That would leave about 99% who are not. That’s a staggering figure in light of the fact that the one per centers have been writing about being all you can be since the early nineteen hundreds. Wallace wattles wrote about the thinking stuff (the God that’s within you) in 1925, Florence Scovall Shin, in the 1940’s, wrote about how to receive whatever you choose, Bandler and Grinder in the 1960’s wrote about the subconscious mind and how to use it to open up the universe. In the 1970’s Ester Hicks channeled Abraham with information about how to manifest all your dreams. Gregg Braden wrote about the way to pray. Deepak Chopra made everything seem easy just by showing us how to think correctly. Wayne Dyer said “You’ll see it when you believe it.” Bruce Lipton writes about how it’s all within your “changeable” DNA. So there’s no “Secret” because if I told you about all the other authors, there would not be room for anything else. Why have we not gotten it if it’s been out there all this time?
We live in this world where there are few eagles and lots of turkeys who are trying to pull each other down to take the top turkey’s spot, but in the end it all comes back to Pogo’s quote “We have met the enemy and he is us”. I learned these things in the 1970’s and yet I am not the guy who has got it all down, but I am on the path following those mentioned above and each year it gets just a little easier. Now that we know why we are where we are, let’s look at where to go next. First of all, this one article can get you on the right path, headed to the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. By taking charge of your life in a big way, following the instructions below unfaltering, no matter what, long enough to make the program habitual will rock your world. Bad habits that you conquered in the past just took time. It took time to stop sucking your thumb, time to stop biting your fingernails and it will take time to drop the bad habits that are keeping you from being all you can be.
We need to look at how we got to where we are and how we got there. I always say we have to take responsibility for our shortcomings, but now I am saying it’s not your fault and both are true. Your parents, siblings, teachers, neighbors, etc. are to blame is why it’s not your fault because they programmed you negatively. That said, you still have to take responsibility for not changing. It’s time to change and here’s how. You read this column regularly and you know that the programming I am talking about is what’s in your subconscious mind. In other words you know who programmed your subconscious mind negatively and you know who can change it - you. First of all, it’s up to you to be the observer and stop thinking or talking negatively. Watch everything you say and eliminate the negative. If you are talking to people about how rotten your life is, that’s what you will get more of because your subconscious mind works really hard to bring you exactly what you focus on. If you try to tell me you are focusing on not being poor, I will tell you that your subconscious mind looks at the subject matter and not the technical details, so your subconscious mind sees only the subject of poverty and says back to you “I see you are focusing on the subject of poverty and I love you so much that I will do everything in my power to bring you more poverty. Like it or not, that’s the way it works. So, what’s next?
Each individual is dealing with a different set of circumstances, so it’s not a one stop shop to fix it all. If that worked, the authors that we mentioned above would have solved all of the problems of everybody. The possibilities of the anchor that holds you back are probably among these most common problems: post traumatic stress disorder. Negativity, gossip, entities or other “gunk” and finally demonic energy may be attached. Some people have so many issues that they need to have multiple hypnotherapy sessions because it is like an onion, peeling off one layer and up pops another. Sometimes there is damage to the aura. Often parts are missing due to unresolved relationships. Others will be dealing with a lost childhood. All these problems could have happened in this present lifetime or another, whether past or parallel. Past life regression can tell you what happened in that past life so you can heal it and go on to your full potential. Ready to start? Good for you; do it now.
