Mind Power Issue #103
Issue #1 – Monday, March 7, 2016
Welcome to the first edition of Mind Power!
I hope you’re as excited as I am.
In today’s issue we’re going to learn why resources flow toward some people and away from others–and what you can do to move to the positive side of this equation.
I have to say, this is one of the most amazing “laws of nature” that I’ve ever come across. This will really make you think.
Also in today’s issue…
- I’ll also share 4 habits I formed to turn myself into a “resource magnet” (you can do this, too)…
- A simple 4 step method you can use to develop these (or any other) positive habit in your life.
I’d really like your feedback on this new webinar.
Rich Get Richer
Have you noticed that resources easily flow to the successful, and away from the unsuccessful? This isn’t the powerful taking advantage of the weak. It’s a law of nature.
This law applies to everything from bacteria to human beings. Though cruel for the individual, it creates survival for the whole.
If you’re on the wrong side of this law, understanding how it works…
…just might help you reverse the trend.
Let’s start with bacteria. When food is abundant, bacteria chow down and multiply like, well, like bacteria. Then, when the cupboard’s bare, scouting parties search for more.
Not all succeed, though.
The failures send chemical messages saying “avoid me”— saving the colony’s resources—while successful scouts send messages equivalent to the ten-foot roof-signs on diners saying “EAT!”, at which point the others come running (or, rather, oozing.)
In all living systems the successful attract resources; the failures repel them.
Baboons at the bottom of the pecking order create hormonal poisons that kill brain cells and lower immune function, creating weakness, illness, ineffectiveness, and lowered status.
Those at the top make hormones and brain chemicals of well-being, confidence, and good health. They end up with more food, better living conditions…
…and more desirable sexual partners.
Depressed hospital patients, who need the most care, are least likely to attract compassionate attention.
Their complaints, anger, body language, facial expressions, and behavior repel caregivers, while more cheerful ill or dying patients attract better care and more nurturing.
From cells to societies, organisms less useful to the community…
…are programmed to self-destruct.
Apoptosis (cell destruction) rids organisms of malfunctioning cells; resources flow to antibodies that deal successfully with invaders and away from those who don’t–successful antibodies increase their numbers, while the failures are robbed of food and the ability to multiply.
At all levels, fairly or unfairly, internal and external resources are withheld from individuals who fail and flow to those who succeed, insuring that resources are used effectively and creating the greatest amount of success for living organisms.
When an organism overcomes a problem, it receives additional benefits.
Failing to master a challenge, though, activates mental, emotional, behavioral, hormonal, and neurochemical self-destructive mechanisms.
Rats sharing a cage were given periodic electric shocks, which could be ended by pushing a button.
Some learned to do this, ending the shock for themselves and their cage-mates. Others never learned to press the button.
The button-pushers remained healthy and fit, while the non-button-pushers became physical wrecks—though…
…all received the same number of shocks.
In their helplessness, non-button-pushers were poisoned by their own stress hormones.
Their immune systems failed. Their reflexes atrophied. Even if given a way to escape, they were too confused or infirm to do so.
Once you’re on the downward spiral, then, is there a way out?
Yes–if you’re willing to consciously and intentionally go against the grain and do things in a different way.
The brain’s recently discovered ability to change—its plasticity—allows us to change automatic internal processes, self-destructive chemical responses, and old ways of behaving.
Repeated thoughts, behaviors, or feelings cause the brain to devote more neural real estate to these new functions.
If moving in an unsuccessful, self-destructive direction (physically, emotionally, mentally, financially, or behaviorally), tools and approaches exist that allow us to step out of a self-destructive spiral and move toward a new and successful upward spiral.
Yes, there will be a momentum to overcome. It can, however, be done.
Four methods I’ve found to be particularly effective:
Meditation. Though nearly any form works, I favor the technological method of meditation my company first offered in 1989 (now used by nearly 2 million people in 193 countries): Holosync® audio technology—because it works about eight times faster than traditional meditation.
Meditation stimulates the same neurochemicals and hormones produced by successful individuals. These feel-good substances are a large part of what makes life easy for top-of-the-pecking-order types.
Exercise. Considerable research shows that, as with meditation, your brain makes more “success” chemicals and hormones when you exercise—increasing your energy, confidence, longevity, and overall health.
Eat right. Your body needs the right fuel to succeed. Losers are drawn to poor food choices, while eating right becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.
The better you eat, the easier it is to continue doing so.
Awareness. Direct the mindfulness gained from meditation to your own internal processes—observing how they generate your emotions, behaviors, and attraction to certain people and situations, while also creating the meanings you assign to the events of your life.
Awareness creates choice; what you do without awareness happens automatically.
Once these four life areas become a choice, you automatically choose what serves you—which pulls you to…
…the successful side of life.
Winners—to whom resources flow—feel different.
They generate pleasurable and resourceful emotions and purposeful behaviors, attract people and situations that foster success, and add resourceful meanings to whatever happens.

You may already know this. We’re in the middle of one of the biggest scientific revolutions ever–a revolution in what we know about the brain and how to change it.
I’ve created a fascinating webinar to tell people about these exciting discoveries and how you can use them to do two important things.
This webinar was really created for people who are not already using Holosync, but I know you’ll appreciate the information (and besides that, I’d like to have you feedback).
In the webinar I’ll fill you in on some exciting brain science discoveries and show you how you can use them to…
- Create solutions to human challenges that used to be considered either unsolvable or very difficult to solve, and…
- Improve human capabilities that used to be thought of as impossible or extremely difficult to improve.
With this information you can dramatically improve any area of your life.
Join me as I reveal these cutting-edge brain science discoveries in my webinar…
New Brain Science Discoveries You Can Use NOW
If you’re like me, every now and then you feel a bit uneasy, agitated, nervous, or anxious. Here’s a simple, fast way for you to calm yourself.
This exercise is used by Navy Seals going into combat.
It works by activating your parasympathetic nervous system and quieting your limbic system.
Breathe in (a moderate sized breath) for a count of 4 and then breathe out more slowly, for a count of 12.
It may be challenging at first to breathe out slowly enough that your out breath lasts for 12 counts.
With a little practice, though, you’ll ever be able to increase the out breath to 24 or even 36 counts.
I do this while I’m driving, reading a book, or watching television. After some practice the breathing just goes on autopilot and you don’t have to think about it.
In addition to calming you when you’re stressed or agitated, this exercise actually lowers blood pressure.
“Awareness provides the solution to all of life’s problems that have a solution. (Some don’t).”
~ Bill Harris
This Really Happened…
“Recently I have awakened to another level and life seems exciting again. I seem more aware of what is happening around me. I feel happier and more focused. I’m able to handle stress much better lately. I am experiencing a calm and inner strength, which I find so helpful in the workplace as well as in my personal life.
Previously, I felt like a cloud was hanging over me. This went on for so long, I was beginning to wonder whether I would ever snap out of it.
However, I continued to listen to Holosync and just like you said, the old model will eventually begin to break down and a new one will emerge. My awareness is becoming more heightened as I progress through the program and I look forward to the future when I will be even more awake and aware.
God bless you, Bill”
