How To Change Your Life For The Better
Thereís a story told about elephants in the circus being
chained to a stake in the ground when they are very young.No amount of effort on
their part can pull out the stake.As the elephant grows to full size with its
tremendous power it still gets chained to the stake.Even though it could easily
pull out the stake it doesnít even try! WHY?
Because it was programmed or conditioned when it was young to
BELIEVE it could not.
That BELIEF still limits the freedom and use of the great power
the elephant in reality does have. In so many ways we like chained elephants,
limited by our erroneous beliefs that have been programmed into our subconcious
mind.We can even pass these limiting and sometimes harmful beliefs onto our
children and our childrenís children.What a heritage!
But it doesnít have to be that way.There is powerful therapy
that can and will change your life dramatically!
Would you like to change your life?
Have you ever looked at someone who is
famous, wealthy or glamorous and thought why canít my life be like
Whatís the appeal of the successful magazines? Is it because we
secretly or openly want to be like those who are featured?
Are you totally and completely satisfied with your
Do you yield to escapism tactics to dull your thoughts and
The purpose of the following information is to help you make a
start in improving the quality of your life.
It may not make you more famous, wealthy or glamorous BUT it
can help you achieve something greater than that.
We may believe that the glamour and the riches of the world
will give us what we truly want but the evidence doesnít support that belief. We
only want these outward trappings because we believe they will make us happy OR
how we think it will make us feel.
What happens when we donít have them or canít get them, how
does that make us feel? Itís a no win situation.
Knowing how to influence how we feel on the inside without the
external benefits is a very powerful strategy. Being in control of your ďstates
of beingĒ instead of circumstances being in control, is worthy of every
Learn to be proactive rather than reactive. Learn to be a
master of yourself and circumstance, rather than a creature of circumstance and
your life will take on new meaning.
I can remember seeing an interview of Sylvester Stallone by I
think it was Oprah Winfrey. He had just had a marriage break up and it was being
discussed how much it had cost him financially and emotionally. It might have
been his second but he was asked the question ď If you could have anything you
want what would you choose?Ē Here was a man who had a lot going for him;
wealthy, famous, great physique etc. He thought for a moment and said ď The
thing that would make me the happiest is a happy relationship, a family and a
modest small homeĒ.
Think about that for a moment.
That ideal is within the reach for most of us. In fact many are
living like that now without wealth, fame and looks. Nevertheless it does
require effort and sacrifice to achieve it.
How To Get What You Really Want
What is it that you deeply and truly want? In a way itís the
same for all of us. It has different titles and different ways of expressing it
but essentially it is the same thing -TO FEEL GOOD!
Now we are going to develop this idea further by giving it
different names and descriptions but remember itís that simple and that complex.
We could call it happiness. We could also expand it to include NOT FEELING BAD
or not being unhappy.
Breaking it down further we can divide it into peace, joy and
fulfilment. You could obviously expand this even further. Itís important before
we go any further to keep this constantly in mind, even though it may seem trite
Itís the basis on which everything else rests! So moving
Even though we all want the same thing, there are different
ways we can achieve it. Climbing Mt. Everest or sailing around the world may
really ďjuiceĒ some but will leave others cold (pun intended). Even the opposite
of feeling good. Yes feeling bad - even terrified.
Some pursuits can give us short-term pleasure but afterwards
long term misery. Migraine sufferers may get delight ďpiggingĒ out on chocolate
or drinking wine but they will pay dearly later. If thatís what triggers your
migraine that is. If you are overweight itís the same deal. Short-term pleasure
eating junk food, long-term misery in living with and hating yourself - if
thatís a problem for you. So use wisdom and caution in pursuing your goals and
what you "believe" will bring you happiness. Trial and error is a great teacher
but there are better ones. Learn from those that are already successful in
leading happy lives.
Many times the greatest feelings come after you have made a
sacrifice or denied yourself some short-term pleasure. Yes there is a price to
pay for the prize you desire.
Know The Laws
The universe exists because of laws. Otherwise it would break
down into chaos. There is cause and effect everywhere. Study learn and apply the
laws that govern your life and your happiness.
Laws Of The Mind
Just as the physical health of the body is dependent on the
laws of diet, nutrition, exercise, rest, recreation etc. so there are laws of
In fact the physical and mental are intertwined.One affects the
other.Getting and staying healthy may not inspire us but thereís a huge payout
at the end.Being fit and healthy feels great.If you are used to being unhealthy
you donít always know what you are missing!
Ignorance will not spare you or excuse you if you donít apply
the laws of the mind or the body!
Most of us donít use our minds correctly.
THIS IS WHERE THE SECRET TO YOUR HAPPINESS PARTLY LIES Ė IN
We say partly because there are a number of laws including
physical and spiritual that influence the quality of your life,
THE MIND IS A MAJOR AREA TO FOCUS ON - if you are to succeed in
your quest - you cannot succeed if you donít. So MASTER YOUR
In A Nutshell
Itís all about MANAGING your THOUGHTS, FEELINGS and
The first is the key to the second two. You master the three by
mastering the first.
Does it take effort, sacrifice, self-discipline, practice? Yes
it does! But boy is it worth it! Your life becomes a wonderful rewarding
adventure instead of a dismal painful existence.
Whichever direction you take there will be discomfort and
difficulty so why not get a positive payout at the end? And guess what: - you
donít have to do it overnight. You can take it as cautiously and gradually as
you like. A step at a time, inch by inch Ė itís a cinch, yard by yard may be too
So where do you start?
1. I would suggest you get your thoughts , ideas, feelings etc.
down on paper. It helps you get better control of your thoughts and
Review your writings often, especially any powerful motivating
inspiring concepts you happen to capture.
2. Only put positive good stuff into your mind. Uplifting
helpful books etc. Write down or mark what affects you for future
There are some great verses in the Bible which I will list at
3. Gradually design your life on paper. What you believe will
bring you happiness, and what you must do to achieve it.
Ie. the PRIZE, the PRICE, and the PLAN
4. Start to observe your thinking process and begin to
ďexerciseĒ your mind by choosing what you will think about and just as important
what you will not think about.
5. Learn and begin to apply the therapy explained in this
article and in the BIOCYBERNETICS book/tapes
Will I Or Wonít I?
Now I know full well that some of you reading this will not do
anything about your situation in life.
You may not believe itís possible to change your life or you
may not be prepared to make the effort. Thatís okay itís your
You can continue to blame others, circumstances and even God
for your life, or you can take responsibility for how you feel and how your life
is right now. We are responsible to a large degree for what happens to us in our
lives. Even more so when it comes to how we feel, our state of mind, state of
emotions etc. Start today to begin a new life. Stop self pity. Recognise things
how they really are and how they can be.
Try the following experiment.
Start doing something you know you should be doing and/or stop
doing something you know you need to stop doing. Write it down and put it where
you will see it often to help you keep it in your mind. Do this for one week and
note how you feel. Make it a small simple thing to start with and build up to
the bigger things as you develop the emotional and mental
This is one of the grand and simple secrets to power, success
and happiness in life.
You wonít progress until you accept and apply this powerful
therapy in your life.
The Power Of Belief
The Bible says "if thou canst believe, all things are possible
to him that believeth"
Belief can work both for us or against us.
Thoughts to be really powerful need to be combined with
This is where many of us come unstuck.
Our beliefs are influenced by so many things. Many of them
negative or incorrect.
Our belief system is being acted upon
What makes this even worse is that probably all of us have
belief systems that limit us, make us miserable, or even destroy
Some of these beliefs are sub-conscious. We may not even be
aware of them - yet they can still self-sabotage our happiness and
I often see patients that want to be healthy, to lose weight,
or want to get pregnant etc. Yet when I test them I find something in their
sub-conscious that is blocking or preventing the achievement of their powerful
This makes the conscious desire difficult or impossible to
achieve unless you know how to find the cause and remove it.
Programming The Biocomputer
We are programmed and conditioned from the day we are born and
probably before that. This programming is not perfect, sometimes itís
Plus itís our perception of what is happening to us, not
necessarily reality that programmes us.Because our programming is faulty it
creates a faulty perspective on life, ourselves and others. This faulty view
further distorts our perception of our further experiences and so the problem
can be compounded.A vicious cycle indeed!
How you are right now is the sum total of your perceptions of
all your experiences positive and negative..
Itís critical in achieving your happiness to take control of
this sub-conscious mind or biocomputer where all this is stored, get rid of the
junk that is ruining your life and put in empowering new
How To Programme Yourself
This is covered in depth in the book BIOCYBERNETICS, but by
referring to the worksheet you can make a start with this extremely powerful
In clinic we have the patient state a positive belief such
"I am a person of great worth and true
If the subconscious has a different belief or rejects the
statement it will cause the patient to weaken i.e. a strong muscle will test
This weakness occurs because there is a conflict in the body or
If you canít get someone to muscle test you just say the
statement and observe how you feel.
You will either know straight away that this statement is not
true for you or you will feel something inside you like an emotional "upsurge".
Something will happen inside you. It may be anger fear sadness etc. some type of
emotion. Thatís a good indicator that you have hit a nerve; a tender spot in
your emotions. If you donít feel anything try another statement. Experiment.
Itís all about introspection. Getting to know yourself. Your weaknesses and your
strengths. Even if you canít find a specific erroneous belief you can choose any
quality or characteristic you desire and programme that into your
The benefit of finding your erroneous beliefs is the removing
of the obstacles it creates.
Very powerful. Combine this with general programming and you
are really going places.
Why Affirmations Donít Always Work
For the reason just explained. Some affirmations if in conflict
with your subconscious beliefs will make you weaker not
The As If Principle
You must ask yourself "how would it feel if I was a person of
great worth and true value".
How would I act if I was a person of - etc.
How would I think if I was a person of - etc.
What do I see myself doing if I was of person -
You must change your belief by thinking, acting, feeling and
seeing yourself already like that and enjoying the benefits.
You act it out in your thoughts, feelings and
You create your own experiences which changes your
AND you must connect up to your new reality massive benefits
How would it feel if I was a person of great worth and true
Fantastic? Happy? At peace? Fulfilled?
Are you getting the picture (pun intended).
If what we really want is to feel good we can achieve that at
least to some degree ďsimplyĒ by applying these techniques.
Or as I like to call it controlling our STATES.
Now what we achieve in our lives outside of ourselves i.e.
relationships, money, success etc. is determined to a large degree by what we
achieve firstly within ourselves.
Happiness is an inside and outside job.
But the external achievements are influenced greatly by our
Itís a nice feeling to be satisfied with yourself even if your
world is falling apart.
The reason we choose this belief as an example is that so many
of us suffer from low self-esteem. Of everyone that we test at least 50% have
this problem to one degree or another.
Low self-esteem causes so many problems in our lives itís a
great place to start. Feel better about yourself and you will feel better about
everything else. Even your circumstances will improve.
You Are Not Alone
Do you sometimes feel life is just too hard? Itís really
important to realise that you donít have to achieve your dreams on your own.
There is help available from many sources. There are many wonderful people who
have dedicated their lives to helping others. Some have created a business out
of helping others. There are countless books, audio and videotape programmes
created for the purpose of helping you achieve your goals.
The laws of the universe exist to help you get what you want as
long as itís not harmful to others. In fact the more you help others no matter
how insignificant the more help you get. Itís a law - you reap what you
Even God wants to help you be happy.
So donít ever think no one cares about you or that you have to
go it alone. Sometimes we canít do it on our own. So donít get despondent or
discouraged. Itís okay to need and look for help outside yourself
Maybe thereís a reason you are reading this right now. Maybe
this information is what you need to help you.
There are a number of therapies and techniques that can help to
eliminate fears, phobias and past traumatic events.We recommend using Gene
Control Therapy (G.C.T.) in conjuction with P.E.T. for best results. E.F.T.
(Emotional Freedom Techniques) is also something you can learn and apply
yourself. Go to www.emofree.com and log onto free information Ė the EFT manual.
This will teach you how to work on yourself.
The Personal Empowerment Therapy (P.E.T.) I use and recommend
will usually eliminate the negative simply by reprogramming with itís opposite
positive belief. While most of the techniques I know of concentrate on
elimination of negatives, P.E.T. concentrates on the acquisition of new and
powerful traits, characteristics and beliefs.
Release of emotional garbage is very important and sometimes
both must be concentrated on for best results, by using P.E.T. and G.C.T.
If necessary you can use E.F.T. or other methods later as
Please realise this is just to get you started. To awaken your
desire. To inspire you to believe life can be better. To get you to take the
first step. To make a start.
