We're starting to get some interesting feedback out there and people are reporting improvements just by listening to the recordings. Now, it's clear that I do have somer pretty strong views about this subject, so let me clarify something that may have got slightly lost in translation.
Of course everyone “wants” to be well. I get that. But at the same time everyone “wants” to be rich, have a great relationship, and holiday in the Caribbean etc.
What I'm saying here is that there is a big difference between “wanting” something and REALLY MUST HAVING something and doing anything it takes to get it!
How do I know the difference? Well, when I really want something really badly I tend to get it. I can measure my true desire for something by way of the energy and devotion and effort I put into it mentally, emotionally and physically in terms of ACTION. When I merely “want” something, I may or may not get it.
And who do I look to for the answer as to why? Me! No-one else. I then ask myself “how much do I really want this?”. And if I really really want it then I crank up the desire, work on myself, use techniques to clear any obstacles and then live the goal in my mind until I'm truly emotional about it in an intense way.
Here’s a silly example. I’ve had a fun and lazy summer! But there are things I want to achieve. And to get them I need to get back to work properly. So I examined how much I really want these things. I ask what would happen without them, and what would happen with them, get that real desire going and now I'm ready to (a) rewind anything that I feel may be in my way and (b) “emotionalize” the goals I'm seeking.
Within days I'm now doing the things that I need to do and it’s like I'm riding on a wave of momentum, being carried almost. Being carried by my own energy which is making the ACTION side easier and almost a pleasure to do. Because I'm focused on the end result, the ACTION is now exciting, as opposed to being a chore.
To get well from colitis I had to put EVERYTHING into it, particularly as there was no example for me to follow. In effect I had to become the example and accept the inevitable ups and downs of trial and error. Nothing was going to stop me, and that attitude was key to my (a) finding a solution; (b) implementing the solution; and (c) continuing the good work until it’s become a habit.
So, here's my question: have you done anything about this yet, or are you waiting for someone else to be the guinea pig on your behalf? Because in my case I wouldn’t have waited a second. As a minimum I’d be researching and trying things out (and remember, there was no Google when I had to do all this!). In addition to "Your Gut Feeling" you should get two other books: “The Power of Now” and “The Power of a Single Thought”. Neither of these books are hypey (like the Secret, which I also like - the DVD more than the book) and they both contain powerful wisdoms inside.
What you've read about me so far has got to be worth some action by now. Sitting by and waiting for someone else is not showing the required desire. Sure, reading this blog is a demonstration of “interest”, but that’s not enough. There has to be ACTION and ENERGY. My method requires a commitment and desire that becomes like a certainty of purpose. With the Rewind Technique it is infinitely easier than what I had to do.
I sometimes hear people say they're scared such-and-such won't work. I understand where they're coming from but being afraid of failure is a kop out. Why? Because my method involves zero risk and is open-ended until it starts to work. Someone can continue with their medication and supervision until such time that the symptoms are noticeably better. At that time the physician may agree to reduce the medication. The goal is for you to be well and have no symptoms. But saying “I just don’t want to be let down again” is akin to continuing to crawl on all-fours because the first time you tried to walk it didn’t work.
I hope this is helpful ... or at least thought-provoking!
All the best
