Just give me a week
The problem doesn't lie in the world around you, isn't a product of bad luck, or isn't found in unfortunate circumstances.
The problem lies in your brain.
Your brain is its own unique and infinite super computer, capable of programming your reality and generating/manifesting everything your heart desires.
The problem is, your brain was programmed first, before you could decide how you wanted to program it. It needs to have a hard-reset to give it a clean slate, in order to program it to create the life of your dreams.
Give me (1) week with your brain, and I guarantee we'll begin rewiring it together.
Catch yourself saying, I can't, even just once, and you'll begin see where you limit your potential, halt your dreams, restrict the universe from gifting you the pathway to a brighter future.
I can't, tells the universe that you don't have the bandwidth for more.
Instead, I offer you a new program of asking for help. Where you feel I can't trickle in, halt that old, unwanted program, and instead, say:
Source, I don't know how I can make this happen, so please send me the resources, people, and power to make it happen.
Such as... You really want to afford that $997 photography course on wildlife in the Yellowstone National Park. You don't have the time or money to do this course, but you dream of it every day. Instead of saying,
I'd love to do that BUT I could never take the time off, or I could never afford it,
ask Source for help by flipping the script and saying:
Guides, I don't know how I'm going to find the time and money to do this, but I really feel like this course is in my best interest, so please bring me the resources, people, and power to make it happen.
And say that every morning when you wake up, and every night before you go to bed.
Then, when the boss randomly gives you an extra week paid vacation this year, you affirm the gift as a sign and say, Thank you, Guides! For paving the way for me to take this photo course in Yellowstone! Please keep the momentum flowing for this to be, by continuing to send me the resources, people, and power to make it happen!
It's not hard to retrain your brain. It just takes awareness and practice.
If you didn't catch last week's email/post on The Magnet in Your Brain, go back and check it out here. It'll help paint the picture of just how powerful your brain truly is.
And if you want to spend a week with Andy in a bootcamp for your brain, email us to get in early, while we're formulating what that looks like.
You, my friend, are the master of your universe. Start wielding that power like you own it. Because you do.
You get what you give
I recently watched the movie The Secret: Dare to Dream—not to be confused with The Secret, although connected to it, the former is a fictional tale about a tropical storm, an inventor, and a widow and her kids... But it's teeming with synchronicities, great messages, and poignant anecdotes for life.
My favorite of those messages is the simple but solid magnet analogy...
The magnet attracts by a force unseen but so real. Your brain is powerful like that. It attracts what it thinks. So you think "bad shit always happens," and that's sure what you'll get. You think, "life brings me miracles every day," and that's what you'll get.
And when life throws you hard fast balls you can't hit, followed by a curve ball you can't hit, and another zinger maybe after that—you could drop the bat and say forget it, I can't hit the ball. Or you can wait it out, because wild pitches always lead to balls, and then just walk your fancy ass to first base.
If baseball ain't your thing, here's another way to look at it. It might look hard, impossible, or just plain unfair, over and over; and if you use those words to describe it, then that's how it'll be. But if you choose better words, insert childlike curiosity and ask yourself how you can spin it, it could actually look easy.
Such as needing a road on your new property, and finding out the old tenant, who do awesomely keeps loaning you his UTV to get around your new land on, says "my brother builds roads," like it's no big deal.
Or your deck builder, who was 3 hours away suddenly gets re-stationed to your county for 2 months, and you know it's no coincidence.
Our life in TN is unfolding just like that. Not because we are lucky. But because we expect that little miracles and Synchronicity move our life forward just the way it's supposed to.
You can have that too, if you choose to. Just write a better script.
If you missed our Manifesting with Synchronicity Live yesterday, catch the replay on either the MWS or Affirmations FB groups. We talked more about the magnet in your brain and how to wire it better.
Amidst a state of fear and lack reality
I recently had the pleasure to speak live about this topic, and I wanted to share what I shared with them on that call last week (if you want to hear the live version, and all 4 speakers, you can listen to that here).
I’ve found that maintaining a positive, abundance-based mindset is a lifelong journey. The mind is a trickster – you think you’re working on this, but without a diligent and consistent awareness of your inner dialogue – the old patterns, limiting beliefs and negative mindset can creep in. I’ve gone through many countless phases and levels of having this awareness, but I find the more I practice, the easier it gets.
During Covid I saw the contraction mindset as a rippling plague – fear was the actual plague, not the virus. We are still suffering the ripple effect of that. The primary message we received was RETRACT! Go inside, hide, and don’t touch anything! Right?
When I felt into this fear-based energy, I made a decision to not hide my language anymore, to help people develop their awareness of the inner dialogue.
When we say negative things internally, they manifest externally. It’s as simple as that. We are powerful beings, and in this hologame, we either have awareness of this or we don’t. ANY negative statement is a low vibration, causing our energy to contract – it feels like we’re living safely, but in reality, it manifests as a prison of the mind, blocking opportunities, freedoms, and abundance from us.
For example – I recently had someone tell me that whenever she’s entrusted things to the Universe, whenever she’s let go of control and surrendered, she said “it hasn’t turned out for the best.” So how that manifests for her, is that she thinks if she doesn’t control every detail of her life, things will fall apart. That’s a bleak outlook!
Instead, I offered her this: It’s all about setting the intention, and expecting the best. If you expect the worst, you tend to get that. If you expect the best, you tend to get that. It’s not complicated, but we make it complicated. It’s how you play the matrix.
I do believe there’s a bit of the “fake it til you make it” energy there, but if that brings up a low energy or vibration for you – because that phrase doesn’t sit well with me personally, I have a trigger for fakeness – then I offer the concept of “Prayer Fields.”
Prayers cause instant ripples in the energy matrix. Prayers that are rooted in gratitude, not desire or need. Such as when I’m walking into a networking event, I set the prayer field that the event will go awesome, I’ll meet all the right people, speak my truth and be heard, and make the connections I need to continue to further my dharma. I see those intentions ripple into the matrix ahead of me, I see people smiling, and talking, and in their own truths, speaking of the things they are passionate about, and I see our passions collide with a flutter of energy and rainbows of color, making new passions and collaborations together. Then I EXPECT this. And so what happens? All of that manifests.
But again, it takes practice, and you have to train your brain to do this, to remember to pause, even if you feel like you’re running late, pause outside the event, and pray that in.
And let me offer this as a last suggestion – when you feel the energy drop in your day, sit back and ask yourself, what was I just thinking? I’d place money on it being a contraction thought. When you can begin to see them, see the difference, and control the flow of them, you’ll begin to see that and flip them more quickly. Just say to yourself or your source, hold on, I’d like to change that, and flip it.
Here are 3 examples of the things I hear, and how to flip them:
I urge you to SHINE, the brightest you can, for the world today. If all of our light was turned up to 10 on the scale of vibration, think what a brighter world this would be.
Together we emerge!
I have said this over and over lately... the collective energy feels like CHRYSALIS. And I can't wait to see the butterflies you all become!
As a collective we process energies together, we are a web, a matrix, a network of energetic bustling! Although we may be in different stages of the same lesson – whether that's awakening, processing, advancing, or resigning, we still process energy together.
These last two weeks I've heard, "I think I need to write a book," "I'm looking for something new," "I just moved too!" And various other signals of transformation more times than I can count. So I'm seeing a pattern emerge – a collective chrysalis energy!
Before the emergence, a butterfly's cocoon will tremble and shake, as she transforms from one being to an entirely new on. Sometimes the transformation is uncomfortable, wobbly, scary, even painful. But what comes out of the other side is always more beautiful than what went in.
I see you, hairy caterpillar. And I can't wait to see you on the other side.
To transformation! 🥂🦋
And an announcement!
With new surroundings comes new perspective... and I've had an opportunity during the chaos of moving across country to think about what it is exactly that I want to help people do for themselves and their lives.
What that came down to was:
Help people be the champion of their life with positivity, action, and peace.
When I unpack those three words, here's what I get:
Positivity - learn how to shift the negative mindset, stop doubting your abilities or gifts, and start believing that you have the power to create what you want in life, and are supported by the Universe in doing so.
Action - get out of "paralysis by analysis" and put your future into motion NOW. Action is the ONLY way to make a change in your life. "If we're not growing, we're dying," said William S. Burroughs, and here at AKCO we believe in making sure you're always growing.
Peace - our two core values here at AKCO are Freedom and Peace. Those have been my battle cry for over 30 years now, and it's what I aim for myself, as well as my clients. Through our courses and coaching, I seek to help you make sure your level of peace runs deep within your core, so that at every turn, every challenge, and every test, you can dig into that reserve of peace and tackle the challenges with a depth of knowing you are powerful, act upon that, and do so without disrupting your inner sanctum.
How we start that is through our primary tool, Affirmations. If you haven't joined us yet for the FREE 21-day course of Affirmations, sign up by replying to this email with "ADD ME!" Or if you have been through our course, and you think a friend could benefit from it, please share it, so that this can become a more positive, action-oriented, and peaceful world we live in.
If you made it this far, good job – you get the benefit of seeing our announcement first! In going over our courses today, we're excited to announce that both our Doing your Dharma (finding your life's purpose through 4 modalities of discovery!) and Magic of Crystals courses will be launched this fall! Dharma will be offered online, and Crystals will only be offered in Knoxville, and both to a limited number of people! So if you want to attend, or know of someone in the area that might, please share the love!
