Hi there fellow entrepreneur, this week I’m delighted to share with you some extremely interesting and useful information from an interview I had with John Assaraf.
Cool story to share! After last week’s article, I thought, “You know what? I should have asked John for an interview, he would be a really great person to interview on the mind and human potential.” So I scurried around cyberspace and was very blessed to find myself talking to John the night before he flew back to the US. John shares with us some amazing and insightful information on how our brains work and how to make the most of this extraordinarily powerful tool that we all have access to every day.
In this interview, John speaks of the importance of attitude and perception in our creative process. He explains how our brain operates, looking for things in our physical world that we’re thinking about. So if we’re focused on something positive, we tend to notice that in our environment. The same principal applies if we’re focused on negative thoughts or emotions, we will see and notice more negative things in our lives. So we really do get what we think about, and this can create a cycle that is hard to break.
In relation to the image I drew for last week’s article, of the brain’s organizing principal, John explains that we need at least three to five positive thoughts to offset every negative thought we have. He goes on to say that it’s easy for us to consciously choose what we want in life, but our conscious choice is only responsible for 2% to 4% of our perception and behavior, 96% to 98% is based on subconscious conditioning or programming.
Unfortunately for many of us, we’re not accomplished at lining up our conscious and subconscious minds to get them working in sync to create the things we want in life. We need congruent and coherent brain patterns in order to be successful in creating the experiences and things we want in our life.
John goes on to explain how we can super charge our conscious creative process by combining modern technology to get our brain into the right frequency or receptive state. There is a brain wave frequency known as a gamma frequency, this is the highest concentrated, most receptive state our brain can be in. John likens it to the way a baby is very open, taking in and absorbing everything around them. In this state, we absorb information faster and retain it better.
There are many useful techniques, like hypnotherapy, guided visualizations, precision language patterns and guided meditations. John says that the best way to access the power of our brains is via the gamma brain wave frequency, and combining technology with the right methodology to alter our neurology, or the neural connections in our brain.
In the interview, we learn how John cured himself of a chronic and debilitating disease through doing what he calls, “innercises”. This involved consistent and focused daily meditations, precision affirmations and visualizations to affect his psychoneuroimmunology, or mind/body field.
As a result, he no longer needed to have cortisone shots or take 25 pills every day. John realized that whatever vibration he held in his mind correlated to his body, so if he was in a state of dis-ease in his mind, that would translate into his body. When John put himself at ease mentally, his body was able to heal itself. From this experience of working with his mind to affect change in his life, John was able to make use of the same principles and techniques to give him a great advantage in his business and personal life.
For many years, John has continued to develop the technology and methodology he has used to effect extraordinary changes in his life. He is just about to begin a test program of getting brain scan imaging done on people who are using his programs that combine the gamma brain wave frequency with his innercise techniques. This sounds like an extremely fun adventure to be involved in!
John says the more we can control our thoughts and mental processes, the more we can win the game of life, whether it’s the wealth game, the health game, the relationship game or any game we want to play. He goes on to say the first thing we need to do is to recognize that there is a power within us that supercedes and transcends anything we can imagine. John says the more we learn about ourselves, the more we learn about how powerful we are. We need to at least open our minds to the possibility that we can achieve so much more in our lives.
John has recently launched a new website, on which we can find a lot of information about our brains and accessing the power of the mind, including free webinars on winning the inner game of wealth. There is also information about John’s brain training systems, which he guarantees will blow our minds! Sounds pretty cool to me 🙂
Thanks for reading about or watching / listening to the interview, and please leave any comments you have at the end.
P.S. I think being involved in John’s test program would be a fascinating and enlightening experience. If I could magic up a way to get myself to the US and be in it, would you be interested in following the progress and seeing the final results of John’s test program? I’ve no idea how serious John was when he said if I could get to the US – I could be in it, but perhaps I’ll look into it 🙂
