Today, we’ll discuss the concept of clarity in a different light.

In essence, there are two kinds of clarity. One of the mind and one of the Heart.
The key is to understand the difference between the two and know which one
serves you the most.

The two kinds of clarity are:

1) Clarity from the mind

When your mind isn’t clear, you feel anxious or unsettled.  Some people
even feel a little foggy or frustrated.

But when you take time to tune-in, breathe and begin to relax, the mind begins to
settle down. Most people then begin to feel like they can breathe easier and their
stress levels drop.

Some even meditate – knowing that there’s still more clarity they can feel.

At this point, most people are pretty satisfied. But many people discover that
clarity of the mind is short lived – it tends to run out faster than we’d like.

But there is another kind of clarity…

One that unifies the mind with the body in ways beyond the mind’s ability to
understand.

2) Clarity from the Heart

The second kind of clarity comes from the Heart. Not the physical organ, but the
spiritual/energetic Heart.  In other words, your connection to God and the Infinite.

This connection is far deeper than the mind can imagine and gives you a much
deeper sense of connection and inner peace.

The key difference between clarity from the mind and clarity from the Heart is
when the mind steps in, the possibility for doubt, fear and confusion increases.

But the Heart speaks a completely different language.  While the mind runs on
patterns and memory, the Heart has no limits and has access to the wisdom of
the Infinite.

It knows only peace and Love.

Let’s say you meditate for 20-30 minutes in the morning.  If you feel stressed as
little as an hour or two later, then any clarity you may have experienced came
from the mind.

But Heart based clarity gives you inner peace that lasts well beyond any meditation
session because it connects you with the energy of Creation itself.

This feeling is almost indescribable because it’s beyond language – and yet we can
feel it palpably because it’s real
.  In fact it’s our true reality and not the illusion
that the mind often projects as “being reality”.

And that kind of clarity increases your energy,awareness and effectiveness in all parts
of your life.

When you really understand the difference between the two, you’re on a completely
different wavelength and life becomes a joyous adventure to learn from.

Whether it be highs, lows or anywhere in between, when your clarity comes from
your Heart, life becomes a child-like playground of wonder, awe and fun…

Here’s the cool thing about Heart based clarity.

You still get the gifts of the mind, but you get the best of both worlds and it’s
simpler to navigate the complexities of life because your Heart and mind
are in alignment.

Now that’s a life worth living…

Stay tuned for our next Clarity update and news about the new Clear-Mind
Clarity Module.

Until then,

May your Heart guide you,

The Clarity Paradox


Whenever we begin something new – whether it be a new day, a
new thought, or a new project, it helps to begin with clarity of thought
and intent.

This kind of clarity inspires you, enlivens you and rejuvenates your energy.

What is Clarity?

Clarity essentially is the state of being clear.
The opposite state would be haziness or confusion.

Real clarity gives you focus, direction and a feeling of centeredness.

With all the distractions we face every day (internet, TV, cell phones, noise,
EMF, etc) on top of all our daily responsibilities, it’s a wonder we ever find time
to feel any real clarity.

So how do you get clarity?

The paradox of having clarity is that it takes some kind of clarity to get you there.
But the mind is often so filled with stray thoughts, it’s hard to even begin with a clear
focus or direction.

If you want 2013 to be different (not just a “little change”, but to have *real
breakthroughs* in your career, your relationships, your finances
and most importantly how you feel) – then you need a catalyst to get you there.

By catalyst, I mean a new source of wisdom that gives you such incredible
clarity, you’ll be amazed at the new thoughts, insights and results you’ll have
when you’re there.

Imagine what that would feel like…

In the next couple days, I’ll be sharing a few more insights about the power of
clarity as well as news about the upcoming Clear-Mind Clarity Module.

Until then,

May 2013 be your best year ever,

A Passing of a Visionary

We just heard that Dr. David Hawkins – visionary and
author of the breakthrough book Power vs. Force died
peacefully at home in Sedona, Arizona, on September
19, 2012, at the age of 85.

He was born on June 3, 1927, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin;
he had been a resident of Sedona since 1979.

David was an amazing man and his work helped people
across the world.  He pioneered a process of muscle
testing together with a map of consciousness to help
people discover the fundamental nature of emotional,
mental, spiritual, physical and karmic dis-ease.

7 years ago, his work became a vital part of our lives.
We are grateful to Dr. Hawkins for his incredible
contributions to the field of consciousness research.

We send blessings to his family as well as his many
friends and students who experienced his work.

David – you will be missed…

The Ancient Secret of Mana


What ancient secret has been missing from Western Civilization for centuries and how does it affect everything you do? (Including your prosperity, your job, your health and your relationships).

Centuries ago, man began to expand westward in his search of more. He sought more land, more resources, and more power. But in all his searching, a precious gift was forgotten. And in forgetting this gift, man has become separate from the very things he craves most.

The secret that’s been missing is what’s called Mana. Mana is a Hawaiian word that means life force or energy. The ancient Hawaiians believed that every living thing contained Mana. This life force existed in the land, the sea, the plants and every living being.

Mana is in essence the energy of creationthe very core of life itself.

Mana is our life force, the power that enables us to live. So many people go throughout life without even using Mana, they walk through life like they are in a fog. With Mana, you perceive what life really means and what its saying to you.
– Lanakila Brandt

Now here’s where the story gets interesting…

In striving so hard in his search, man raced right past what he wanted most – the experience of connectedness, of oneness – in other words peace of mind and heart that lasts – even in the face of challenges – no matter how great they may be.

The secret of living a prosperous, peaceful and happy life can only be found in the experience of Mana – of your own life force and Spirit.

What blocks Mana?
The inability to focus – the Unquiet Mind.

The ancient Hawaiians taught what’s called the Ha Rite to help us find this connection to our Mana and experience this Mana in our daily lives with gratefulness, compassion and peace. The Ha Rite helps cure the Unquiet Mind syndrome more than any single force on this earth.

The Ha Rite isn’t just for the chosen few, its for all of us to experience and share. But so many people have been dis-connected from this ancient rite for so long that even simple directions on paper alone won’t give you experience of Mana.

I had to study with someone in person who helped teach me this ancient rite, and it made all the difference for me. Anxieties, anger, lack of focus and clarity all dissolved away after I learned this precious gift of Mana.

In my travels to the ancient land of Hawaii, I’ve re-discovered this precious gift of Mana – and the feelingthe experience is so profound, so blissful, that many people who’ve forgotten this lost gift may think that it doesn’t even exist.

Many people have re-discovered the gift of Mana and in doing so, they feel almost like they’ve discovered the fountain of youth. But the experience of Mana is real. And Hawaii is one the very few places on Earth where you have a direct connection to it.

Maybe it’s because of the active Volcano – Kilauea.

Maybe its because Hawaii is 3000 miles from the nearest continent and not affected by the “busy-ness” of city life.

Maybe it’s because the myths of the ancient civilization of Lemuria are true.

One thing is sure – the experience of Mana in this ancient land is real.

How can you re-discover the lost art of Mana?

Click here to find out how you can experience the lost art of Mana in person on the ancient Island of Hawaii on our last Hawaii Dolphin retreat this year. We have just a few spots available and if you’re looking to find the life-force within you again, this Retreat will be the trip of a lifetime for you.

with your passion, your purpose and your greatest gifts.

Your Higher Vision

Yesterday when I was working on an creative project, I had one of
those moments when your intuition tells you to step back and let go.

So I did just that.

I looked up into the pine trees that surround our deck and asked for guidance
and then I did what I’ve done for as long as I can remember…

I just gazed int the trees and felt the presence of Nature.  I allowed myself
daydream for what seemed to be about a half hour.  But it was just minutes.

Moments later, as I was looking into the trees, I saw a large bird with beautiful
wings fly over and I had t do a double take.  I look into these trees daily – but never
see this kind of bird.

It was perched high on a limb of the tree above me so I had to get up out of my
chair to see if I could catch a glimpse of it.

I had a feeling what it was, and I could only see its
beak.  It was a falcon.

A big beautiful falcon.

Falcon (Photo credit - Avia Venefica)

I forgot about my request for guidance and then I
remembered how Native Americans always trust
what shows up in Nature.

So I looked up the significance of the Falcon totem.

According to Avia Venefica at her site
whats-your-sign.com

“The Falcon animal totem comes to us when we
require higher vision, or higher knowledge in
solving current dilemmas in our lives.”

She adds:
At its core, the Falcon animal totem represents visionary power, wisdom,
and guardianship. This powerful bird awakens visionary power, and
leads you to your life purpose. The Falcon carries with it a message
of transition and change – perhaps in your vocation, work, career, etc.

And it resonated with me perfectly…

If you ever feel stuck or experience an impasse or frustration, you may
want to ask yourself:

“What’s the vision that’s bigger than me?”

and

“How can I allow it to guide me on my journey”

and just let go and allow Divine Spirit to speak to you and inspire you in new ways.

It may just be the very thing you’ve been wishing for…

Blessings of Aloha,

Paul Bauer

What’s a Meme Shifter?

As the Great Shift continues to unfold on our planet and within each
of us, many people are wondering “what’s next?”

Some feel “on edge”, wondering when the next piece of bad news
will occur.

Yet others sense something wonderful is happening.

Both are right.

Because the great Shift isn’t “out there” somewhere. It’s within all of us and it’s
one of the greatest transformations in history.

A 125,000 Year Super Cycle

And according to astronomers and Shamans alike, a shift of this kind hasn’t
happened for 125,000 years.

But the core of the Great Shift isn’t some Mayan prophecy. Instead, it’s a shift
that’s bigger than any of us can imagine.

And it’s a chance to participate in the creation of new memes and breakthroughs
that our ancestors couldn’t have ever imagined.

What’s A Meme?

According to Wikipedia:

A meme 1] is “an idea, behavior or style that spreads from person to person within a culture.”

A meme acts as a unit for carrying cultural ideas, symbols or practices, which can be
transmitted from one mind to another through writing, speech, gestures, rituals or
other imitable phenomena. Supporters of the concept regard memes as cultural
analogues to genes in that they self-replicate, mutate and respond to selective pressures.

The word meme was coined by Richard Dawkins in his book “The Selfish Gene”.

A little more about Memes:

1) An idea that, like a gene, can replicate and evolve – (Csikszentmihalyi, 1994).

2) A unit of cultural information that represents a basic idea that can be transferred
from one individual to another, and subjected to mutation, crossover and adaptation.

3) A cultural unit (an idea or value or pattern of behavior) that is passed from one
generation to another by nongenetic means (as by imitation); “memes are the cultural
counterpart of genes.”

Are You A “Meme Shifter?

In essence, if you feel that something wonderful is happening, you’re a “Meme Shifter”.
In other words, you’re part of the creation of new memes that we collectively create
from nothingness into incredible shifts in:

Our technologies (of all kinds)
Learning systems
Our understandings of spirituality
Abundance
Financial systems
Ecology
Food systems
How we treat ourselves, our fellow beings and Mother Earth

…and hundreds of other systems within us and on our planet.

Cultural Genes?

Some genes replicate that aren’t necessarily serving to you individually
or for humanity. And since Memes are the genes of our cultures, we’re
beginning to become aware that certain memes that once served us are
beginning to erode and fall away.

Examples:

Polluting the earth
Self judgment
“Us vs them” ideologies
Beliefs in scarcity
Equating money with success
Valuing “things” over ourselves or life itself

So, as a “Meme Shifter”, every choice you make and every thought you think begins to
affect our collective memes.

The real question is:

What choices will you make today that allow the Great Shift to unfold…?
What shifts are you willing to make to let the Infinite move through you
and become life itself?

Aloha and Mahalo for your time,

Paul Bauer

P. S. – From your perspective, what Memes are shifting or need shifting?

We’d love your feedback…


The Secrets of The Bamboo Tree

If you’ve ever noticed someone who’s become truly successful (in any
endeavor) it’s easy to think that some of them are what you might call
“overnight successes”.

But the truth is that for any of these success stories are years of sculpting and
practice that it took before their success was ever known.  By the time people
on the outside world ‘see” these successes, countless hours of practice, insights
and focus have been invested.

Gifts Beyond Measure

Like the bamboo tree that grows for years under the surface of the soil, hidden
beneath the surface of your normal awareness are gifts beyond your mind’s
normal ability to see.

Something beyond your imagination…

Beyond our normal human understanding.

The Illusion That “Nothing’s Growing”

Humans are a very fickle race. We grow impatient when what we want doesn’t
“show up” when and how we want it.  Then sprinkle in some extra “attraction tricks”
that have been tossed around lately by pundits and you get a recipe for some
very interesting results (and interpretations).

But to the patient Souls – the ones who “see beyond the obvious”, the reality is that
growth of unimagined proportions has already begun.  In your Heart, you know
that your intent is already real before you can ever “see it”.

When you’re centered and open to Divine guidance, old dis-serving patterns that
once prevented you from seeing and feeling your creations already real fade away
and new inspiring and energizing ones spring forth.

When you see the image of the bamboo forest above, could you ever have imagined
this kind of growth in such a short period of time?

What if the seeds of your growth have *already* been in place for years?

And what if gifts of incredible scope and depth for you and for our world are just waiting
for your gentle nurturing and guidance?

How do you nurture these gifts?

Meditation
Gentle observance
Non judgment
Qi-Gong, Yoga, Deep Breathing, Nature walks, “Vitamin N”

A return to innocence, play and living life itself, rather than living from old
dis-serving memories and old roles.

Now it’s your choice – to carry forth either the old patterns that hold you back, or
to create an inspired and enlivened vision path filled with love, peace and serenity.

The past is just a memory and it has no bearing on your True Self.

“Choice Point” happens in the moment.

Past  ————————-  Present ————————- Future


It’s really all the same.

The real key is the present

Because it unlocks the door of all Creation.

What gifts are you willing to give life to?

What secrets lie waiting to spring forth like the bamboo tree?

It’s time my friend to nurture your Dreams and Heart’s Desires.

You can do it as you listen to your Heart – because it will
never fail you.

Feel free to post your comments below – and lets’ grow this “new
bamboo forest” together…

“The Ability To Blossom”

“And the day came when the risk it took
to remain tight in the bud was more painful
than the risk it took to blossom”

– Anais Nin

In Today’s Issue

The Ability To Blossom

Over the years, many of our subscribers have asked how to find more clarity
and focus in their lives.

When I’ve asked them what they mean by clarity, they answer:

“A clear sense of what I’m here to do, I’m not really excited about anything
anymore and I want that feeling of passion or excitement back again
(or to find it for the first time)”.

I answer them by asking what’s bothering them first.
(Because the very thing we can learn from most is the
lesson that continues to come back to us.)

What surprises us is that our passions get bogged down by the resistance to letting
our problems go. In other words, we can get stuck in a pattern of trying to the
“same old thing the same old way”.

Our real lesson is to allow normal life situations to teach us and give us what we
need. If we “fight the flow”, we’re really fighting ourselves.

But, when we honor the lesson, the energy inside of us opens up, (blossoms) and
then we’re free again to create what we really want in life.

Some of you may say:

“But, Paul, this sounds a little too “New Agey” for me”.

It depends on what you REALLY want in your life. If you want life to be simple
and to be in flow (great results with less effort), this may be a good time to just
let go of the “old way” and move forward…

Let’s look at today’s theme once again,

“And the day came when the risk it took to
remain tight in the bud was more painful
than the risk it took to blossom”

What sense do you make of this wisdom?

Are you prepared for the next steps in your life?

Are you ready to be more *passionate* about what you really value in your life?

Are you ready to truly blossom and grow? Or will you settle for the same old way
of living?

You have genius within YOU my friend… it’s there….

I can see it – Can You? : – )

Let’s go on a little “mini” – vacation for a moment or two…

Ask yourself:

“How can I awaken my Dream or Vision today?”

“What step can I take that will energize my Dream and support
humanity in some way?”
(even if you don’t yet know)

“What could it be?”

Close your eyes for just a moment…

Take a deep breath…

b   –   r   –   e   –   a   –   t   –   h   –   e

Take a moment and write down YOUR Dream or Vision:
(or something you’d LOVE to do in your life)

_______________________________________________

_______________________________________________

_______________________________________________

Ask yourself:

“How can I energize this Dream in my life today?”
(What simple step could I take now to FREE this energy within me?)

_______________________________________________

_______________________________________________

_______________________________________________

When you choose to just . . .

b   –   r   –   e   –   a   –   t   –   h   –   e

Your energy field opens up and you begin to blossom again – and you begin
to re-discover the REAL you . . .

and your Life’s Dreams begin to awaken . . .

And so it is…

: – )

Allow your Dreams to take flight my friend

How to have a Clear Mind


In a given day, we think between 50-60,000 thoughts.

And over 90% are the same thoughts, over and over, day after day. And
because these thoughts are primarily focused on our challenges and
problems, they can take an enormous toll on our mind and body.

Thoughts and the body

When a thought is created, it exists in more than just the brain.  When it enters
the body, it becomes emotion. If the thought isn’t positive or peaceful, the body
automatically begins to create hormones and other life-depleting energies
throughout the body.

In other words, stressful thoughts like money problems, relationship issues,
work problems, family issues, etc, create negative energies like little “stress
alarms” that send stress hormones like cortisol every time you think them.

The Shift to a Clear Mind

But when your mind is clear you begin to create positive neurotransmitters
such as serotonin in the brain. These are like little “massages” in your brain,
nervous system, and body every time you have a loving or peaceful thought.

Each time you think warm, peaceful thoughts, you send a series of stress
clearing neurotransmitters and hormones washing their way through your
mind and body.

It’s like going on a “mini vacation” at your desk or while you drive, etc..

Why is it important to have a Clear Mind?

Intuitively, the clearer your mind is, the better you feel. But it goes deeper.
When your mind is clear, you process thoughts and emotions with much
greater clarity and speed. You’re more productive.

You experience clarity. You have focus.

The decisions you make create far more effective results.

What are the key benefits of having a Clear Mind?

Let’s review some of the benefits of a Clear Mind.

Better sleep
Peace of mind
Instant clarity and focus
Access to the power of your Heartwaves
A direct connection to your Higher Self
A surge in creativity and productivity
Energy that continues throughout your day

and many more…

The Keys to having a Clear Mind

Here’s a few simple ways to create “Clear-Mind states”.

1) Practice conscious breathing (deep and rhythmic)
2) Meditate at least once a day
3) Practice mind body exercises like Qi-Gong, Yoga or Tai-Chi
4) Drink plenty of fresh purified water
5) Begin your day in gratefulness

and many more…

The benefits of having a Clear Mind go far beyond just stress relief or what you
can see with just your eyes.  Because your body mirrors every thought you think
every day of your life.

The real question is, what thoughts are you thinking?

Stress and not enough?

Or calm, clear thoughts that promote life?

Take time right now to breathe, calm your mind and open your heart.

Knowing that when your mind is clear, so is life itself.

And So It Is…

To Your Dreams And To Your Abundance,

The Binaural Myth – Part I


“Your Heart will never fail you”

– Susan M. Castle, RHT, CHT

About 160 years ago, a discovery known as binaural beats was discovered
that could affect the way the brain processed information and stress.

Since that time, it’s become a popular way to “induce” the brain to shift its
normal frequency in many meditation programs.

But something important has been left out of these meditation programs
– and it’s the most important part of you.

The Old Paradigm of the Mind

Imagine having just a brain – with no emotion, no way to feel, and no
way to understand the dozens of new experiences that we encounter
every day of our lives.

The false premise of the Binaural Myth is that the brain is the center
of your consciousness.

But that’s the old paradigm…

In other words, its gotten us as far as it can take us. The Binaural Myth has been
followed by thousands without knowing that there was something far more
powerful already within their reach.

But because the Paradigm of the Mind has its vested interest in keeping the
status quo, it will not let go without a fight.  Tha’ts the ego’s job, to hold on to
the “Island of the Known”.

But just outside the Island of the Known is a vast Ocean of wisdom, joy,
creativity and inner peace beyond words.

Because it’s the awesome Nature of life itself…

The New Paradigm of the Heart

Your Heart is far wiser than your mind.  In his research in the 1980’s, Dr.
Paul Pearsall discovered that the Heart is 5000 times more powerful than
the brain.

Scientists, Quantum Physicists, and other Visionaries now agree that the
Heart is the new frontier.

And the research has only just begun…

Whole new frontiers of the Heart are being discovered. (not just the physical
heart, but the Spiritual/Energetic Heart)

Proof of the Heart’s Energy – The Heartwave

Within each beat of your Heart is a profound wave of energy.  That wave is
known as the Heartwave. It contains the Essence of life itself.  It also contains
answers to literally any question or challenge you will ever face.

Many people now realize that tapping into the power of their Heartwaves is
the most Spiritual and practical thing you can do for yourself.

The Turning Point

What if you could tap into this deeper source of insight, creativity and peace?

There’s a simple way to do this with ease – right in the comfort of your own
home or office.

And when you manifest from your Heart, your manifesting power increases
exponentially.

Now – you can tap into this power of your Heartwaves to calm the mind,
dissolve stress and discover new ideas and breakthroughs beyond the limits
of the mind.

How do you do this?

It’s called Clear-Mind – the simplest way of calming the Restless Mind and
activating your Heartwaves.

I invite you to move beyond the limits of the mind – and let your Heart guide you
with the power of Clear-Mind.

(remember, when you live from your Heart, your manifesting power
dramatically expands.)
