If you could press a button and watch the problems in your life melt away…
…would you press it?
I’ll explore this fascinating proposition in today’s Check it Out.
Also in today’s issue…
You’ll learn how one of the things you’re most afraid of–falling apart–is actually the BEST thing that can happen to you.
Also, today’s Sixty-Second Secret will help you stop unwanted behaviors (and replace them with behaviors you DO want).
I Love Chaos (and so should you) Part 4

You—and all open systems—evolve and grow by exchanging energy with your environment. Incoming matter and energy is converted into movement, growth, thoughts, and other human activities.
These energy exchanges, though, create entropy (disorder).
That doesn’t throw you, though, because—like all open systems—you’re able to dissipate entropy to your environment—though there is a limit to how much entropy you can dissipate.
builds up inside of you.
Usually, though, you easily adapt to what happens. Every day you quite easily handle many varied and unexpected situations.
Occasionally, though, life overwhelms you. If environmental input exceeds your ability to export the resulting entropy, you might feel…
And, if this build-up continues long enough, you will fall apart.
Fortunately, there are an infinite number of other possible outcomes—all of which involve the system (you) reorganizing at a higher, more complex level that can handle the input the old system couldn’t handle.
This, in fact, is how open systems evolve and grow—whether a germinating seed, a star…or you.
After this reorganization, you can dissipate more entropy—and your threshold for what you can handle is higher. You’re a new person, and you deal with more without feeling chaotic.
Chaos, then, creates positive change—so we all welcome it, right?
We resist it. We freak out if it gets to be too much—which creates a serious problem.
Let’s take a closer look: Imagine you’re in a sinking boat. What would you do? Bail like crazy? Bailers frantically try to push entropy out of the system. They get angry, cry, yell, exercise compulsively, have sex (etc).
Others try to plug the hole. They hope to block additional input, buying time to dissipate the chaos. They isolate, shut down, get depressed. They breathe less, constrict the pupils of their eyes to take in less light, eat less, and so on.
When you successfully use one of these methods (they do work), what happens? That’s right. You saved the system from falling apart. Bravo!
Rinse and repeat.
Most people repeat this cycle for their entire life: overwhelm… save the system…temporarily feel better—until the next time.
But, what if we didn’t “save the system”? What if the system was allowed to come to that bifurcation point where it reorganizes at a higher level? In that case, a new system replaces the old one—with a greater ability to dissipate entropy, and a higher threshold.
And, that new system would easily handle what the old system couldn’t. (Think unflappable Zen monk.)
Ironically, by saving the system, we preserve the limitations that caused the problem in the first place. Why do we do this? Why do we fight to hang onto what perpetuates our problems?
When the system goes into chaos, we think we are going into chaos. We think we are falling apart.
But we aren’t!
Instead, our Map of Reality—our idea of who we are and what the world is—is falling apart. Which is a good thing!
If your way of seeing things, doing things, and navigating your life can’t handle your environment…
Then say, “Hallelujah!”
When you confuse the real you (the living flow of energy) with your Map of Reality, you’ll think you have to save the system—instead of allowing it to fall apart and reorganize in a new way that can easily handle more.
First, realize that it’s your Map that’s overwhelmed, not you. Then, step back and watch. Feel the overwhelm and say, “Hmmm. Interesting. What will the new system be like?” Instead of resisting, let it be.
Watch with curiosity. Overwhelm, breakdown, and reorganization is the most natural thing in the universe.
All you need to do is get out of the way. So the next time you feel chaos, say, “Ah ha. My Map can’t handle this. If I just leave it alone and watch—and don’t try to save it—it will reorganize in a new way, and the problems of the old system will be solved.”
Then, just watch the process, with awe and curiosity, knowing that you’re watching God in action.

If you could press a button and watch the problems in your life melt away…
…would you press it?
Or would you scoff and say, “that’s just science-fiction.”
I wouldn’t blame you. Not too long ago, what I’m about to share with you was science-fiction. (Along with about a million other things that are now common-place.)
Humans didn’t know enough about the brain to make this kind of change possible. But in the last 30 years or so, there have been some amazing advances in our understanding of the brain…
…and how to change it.
For example, Holosync, the audio technology I created back in 1989.
Less than a decade after I created Holosync, I met a man named Paul Sheele. Paul is the creator of a series of recordings called “Paraliminals”.
These recordings affect your unconscious mind in a way that can help you make…
…some remarkable personal changes.
If you have problems with…
- Poor Memory
- Negative Beliefs
- Weight Gain
- Low Energy
- Fear of Success
- Longing for Something
- Bad Habits, or
- Negative Self-Talk
…Paraliminals can help.
A few years ago we licensed Holosync to Paul’s company, Learning Strategies, to make these amazing soundtracks even better (which I wouldn’t have done if they didn’t work).
Holosync puts you into a super-receptive mind state. Then, Paul (who I’ve known for over 20 years) speaks to your left brain (through your right ear) in a left-brain, rational way…
…while also speaking to your right brain (through your left ear) in the more metaphorical, visual way that your right brain understands.
This activates your “whole mind” and causes you to make the changes you want at the unconscious level, which is…
…very unusual, pleasurable, and effective.
Paraliminals can help you make the changes you want without taking a lot of time, because most Paraliminal sessions are 20 minutes, and you’ll often see results in the first couple of listenings.
Even superstars like Jack Canfield and Tony Robbins use and recommend Paraliminals. Learning Strategies has a 30-day money-back guarantee, and Paul’s attitude is that you must be 100% satisfied or you’ll get a prompt, no-questions-asked, cheerful refund.
Right now Learning Strategies is making a special offer just for Centerpointe people:

Give them a try. They’re guaranteed, so there’s no risk to try them.
And, how often do you actually stop whatever it is that you don’t want to do?
My guess is…not often.
The reason telling yourself to stop an unwanted behavior doesn’t work is that your focus is on…
…what you don’t want to do.
And, when you tell yourself to stop doing something, you cannot help but imagine yourself doing the very thing you don’t want to do.
When you imagine yourself doing something (even if it’s something you DON’T want to do) your brain tries to make it a reality.
That’s why telling yourself to stop doing something doesn’t work.
What does work? Seeing yourself do it with awareness. Watching yourself do it with curiosity and detachment.
So how do you do that? The easy way is to change your brain.
When you focus on what you don’t want, your limbic system is in charge. When your limbic system is in charge, you have zero ability to consider longterm consequences. That’s why you can do something that doesn’t serve you, over and over.
If you calm your limbic system, and enhance your prefrontal cortex (the part of your brain that, if strong enough, supervises your limbic system), bad habits will fall away without effort.
The driver of the bad habit, your limbic system, will be too calm to prod you to do it, and the part of you responsible for awareness, your prefrontal cortex, will be able to clearly see the consequences and you’ll naturally heed those consequences.
You’ve probably already figured out that I’m going to suggest that you use Holosync, since Holosync calms the limbic system and enhances the prefrontal cortex.
When you do this, bad habits, and everything else in your life, becomes a choice. Once you have a choice, you’ll always choose what serves you and drop what doesn’t.

can’t, either way you are right.”

This Really Happened…
“I have been using Holosync for 6+ years, & all I can say is: it is everything they say it is and more! I am calmer, have a very quiet mind now & am a vastly more peaceful & present person.
I recommend Holosync to anyone & everyone who would like to experience themselves free of the ‘personality limitations & challenges’ that you think are ‘just who you are’.
They are not.
Experience yourself evolving without strain or effort. ♥”
