You’re Amazing – You Have A Reticular Activating System!

Continuing my study of A Bug Free Mind by Andy Shaw.


The last couple of weeks I have been using Andy’s techniques a lot more than usual. Everything has been going pretty well on most fronts. However I was still struggling with some elements of a new online business opportunity that presented itself. I decided eventually that there was too much time, money and effort required. There was also no certainty of a return. I know there is never absolute certainty of a return but that wasn’t the main thing. It was just too much time and effort. Later I remembered my Reticular Activating System.

That day I was listening in the car to the audio of the chapter below (Chapter 6 – UABFM). I have read this chapter about maybe 6 or 7 times but found that I have forgotten some important points. So I reviewed my book and journal notes of this chapter after I got home. Immediately afterwards I edited my design regarding business opportunities. So, I adjusted the design in such a way that I only come across opportunities which are tested and likely to succeed. They are easy to implement, quick to learn, don’t take forever and will help and/or inspire people.

Needless to say, within a few days I came across something that at this stage appears to meet that criteria. Stay tuned for more on same. In the meantime here is my summary of chapter 6.


I have a Reticular Activating System (RAS) in my brain. It filters out stuff I don’t need to know because they have become routine. This means it helps me operate on autopilot, walking, driving etc. It is also like a spam filter.

The answers filter through when I know what I desire first. So, if I am not rich, it is natural, simply because I have not yet programmed my RAS filter for what I desire.

When I desire a particular type of car, I then start to see them everywhere, this is because my RAS has been programmed that this car now has value to me. The same can be applied to a business opportunity, a partner, a job or whatever.

As soon as I know what I am looking for, then the information and opportunities become apparent because I have identified to my RAS what is important to me. If I don’t know or have not yet decided, then my RAS won’t find it for me. Even if it’s very close I will not see it. I get this once I have control over my ego to fully create my designs and I feel the answers.

For example, when I planned taking a trip abroad, all the minor visualisations I had all aided me in accomplishing my goal, yet these were mostly done on autopilot without thinking about them. They took very little time or effort, yet were essential to attaining the goal, choosing an airline, booking time off work, checking my passport, printing off boarding passes, packing my bag, setting my alarm etc. This is all natural goal setting. It is what I do when I desire something and I know without doubt I will make it happen.

Why Goals Work

That is why these goals work and goals like ‘I want to be rich’ fail. I can feel the difference between them. I have created stepping stones and knew it would happen, therefore I created it. ‘Belief’ was not involved. I look inside myself and I feel my state – this is the state, the feeling I use to bring my designs into my reality. Whatever my mind can conceive and know, it can create! This is critical for me to know.

So, the main thing is, I need to know the destination and supply some visualisation of the steps I need to take to get there. The problem here can sometimes be the term ‘goal setting’. This has been misused to the point that when we hear it, most people shun away from it, yet it is what we do on autopilot all the time. It is in our nature and we use it to succeed at everything big and small, all the time. I succeeded in getting to New York, I succeeded in getting to work, to the shops, getting home again, never forgetting where I lived. I was detached from the outcome because the outcome was certain and fully expected.

So, it needs to be the same with goals like, getting rich, starting a business, recovering my health, losing weight, successful relationships. Exactness gives power.

We automatically do what is necessary to get to New York as it has been programmed and is mostly done on autopilot. But when it’s new we have to learn it. So, I need to do the same with planning my business success, when planning to become rich.


Because I desire success I must program my mind for it. It is not hard, it just requires me to slow down, use less effort, consider what my desired outcome is and then visualise attaining that outcome. It is not rocket science, I can do this stuff, I can change my thinking, and become a successful person – I know I can.

I always find the right piece of information at the right time and I get inspired as I continue to re-read and re-tune. The main thing is I must know what I desire and then become fully aware of how to get it. I cannot know all the facts so I let that go.

My ego has no experience outside of the past. Often, I cannot see the thing I am looking for until I move away from my ego. When I change my perspective, I can see more clearly.

There is an advantage to having a general knowledge of a lot of subjects rather than a lot of knowledge of one subject. My experiences are unique to me, no-one else has had the same experiences, therefore I will see things others will not. My vision is to start seeing goal setting as pleasure rather than work.

I now stop using the term goal setting and start using the term ‘my designs’. So now when I talk about my life design it is about how I design my life using this technique.

I attract nothing, I create my designs, my desires, my things, my world out of thin air… I engineer my future and I will soon prove it to myself.

Good Routines

A program can be good or bad. When it becomes a routine, I can do it on autopilot. I can imprint into my mind the routine for me to achieve the life I desire. My vision is to attain my design routinely and without effort. I like the sound of that.

The reason I take things for granted is that things have become part of my routines, and of course the object of a routine is that I don’t have to think about it. My mind takes care of billions of internal routines every day. They are properly installed programs.

However, there can be problems with routines. The program is kept out of my RAS when I have programmed a routine. I don’t need to know about it or pay too much attention to it anymore. My brain then thinks I don’t need to notice so my RAS switches the present moment off. Therefore, I need to slow down, smell the roses, use no-mind and be present as much of the time as possible.

Everything ever created, from the wheel to the internet, started out as a thought, a daydream. Without it, nothing happens. Once I have switched these natural skills back on, I may find I don’t have to do any of the heavy lifting again. When I apply these techniques, I see my designs go from powerful to extraordinary and I can protect myself from harm. And because I am unique I can use any combination to make this work.


  • I have a Reticular Activating System (RAS)
  • It creates routines and helps me operate on autopilot
  • When I program my RAS for what I desire, it allows it through its filter and it now knows it’s important to me
  • It is important to remember that I must decide and know what I desire, otherwise RAS won’t allow it
  • My feelings never lie
  • Consider planning a trip – this is natural goal setting
  • I have created stepping stones – I knew it would happen
  • Whatever I can conceive and know I can create
  • I succeeded because I was detached from the outcome because the outcome was certain and expected
  • Exactness gives power
  • I desire success; therefore, I program my mind for it
  • I don’t need to know everything
  • I see goal setting as pleasure, this now becomes my designs for my life
  • My RAS will switch off the present moment so I need to remember to remain present
  • Everything ever created began as a thought

The Process of Success

The Process of Success
Continuing my study of A Bug Free Mind by Andy Shaw.


For the last month or so, I have struggled with a decision regarding a contract I am working on. An offer of a more secure position came in at a time when it looks like the obvious choice. However I had to go back to ABFM basics when considering this one and while there is more risk in taking a different path I feel it in my gut that it is the right one. My review and summary below of Chapter 5 of Using a Bug Free Mind really stood out and helped me in this regard. Once again thank you Andy Shaw for these inspiring books.

Success includes energy, enthusiasm for life, creative freedom, a sense of wellbeing, fulfilling relationships, good health, and of course material abundance. Success is the ability to fulfil all our desires with effortless ease.

I can’t out give the universe so if I desire anything then I change from going to get to going to give and I find then that abundance finds me. So, if I desire love I give love; if I desire attention I give attention; if I desire material riches I help others become materially rich. If I desire to be blessed with all the good things in life, then I silently bless everyone else with all the good things.

The more I give the more I will receive. In my willingness to give that which I seek I will keep the abundance of the universe circulating in my life. I am demonstrating that I know I have an abundance of it by giving it away.

Life is a force flowing through me; where I direct my attention, the energy flows. I avoid protecting what I have, otherwise I am asking to need protection more. I create my design for each of my desires. I am expecting and therefore creating it. By expecting it I am ‘believing it’, so the universe serves up what I am asking for.

I now expect and know I have success with the same certain mindset that used to expect failure. This makes a huge difference. Inside I feel I am successful and in turn making others successful. I confer benefits on all in my act of succeeding. I silently desire for them to find what they are looking for. This kind of silent giving is very powerful. I practise silently wishing everyone I encounter joy, happiness and laughter. This is how I use the law of giving and receiving. I see my life always over-brimming with joy, happiness and laughter. In doing this I am circulating the gifts of caring, appreciation, affection and love and will therefore keep wealth also circulating in my life.

I feel the success growing within me with every action. I allow every act I take; my tone and look express the quiet assurance that I am successful. Words are not necessary to communicate this feeling to others. I go to give; I do not go to get. I get automatically by giving more, so I don’t need to focus on that more than provide a way to automatically receive.

I remain aware of my egos desire to keep me safe when I see the results of mistakes or bad decisions. One good decision makes up for hundreds of bad ones, so I remain constantly on the look-out for my egos wish for me not to progress. Success is overcoming all my mental barriers, anything that is holding me back is not helping me get to where I desire to go, so I drop it and let it go. If it’s not helping me its hurting me and I don’t need it. Being able to quit things that don’t work is essential to my success.

I am continually busy doing countless things which I don’t know how to do for sure. This is my journey, the fun and excitement, I don’t know what my future holds. All I know is that I am committed to a path and I will do whatever it takes to take the next step. This gets me to the next step and the next…. this is just a process of acting boldly. This is a formula for success. I am worthy of success. My results of my efforts and decisions is transformed by the fact that I no longer self-sabotage myself. My mindset is now resolved to be successful. I don’t have to be smart enough not to fail, this is the opposite of how life evolves. The more success full I am the more mistakes I make, period.

If I sit still I am playing it safe, it might look like I am moving forward because I am not moving backwards but nothing stands still. If I am not moving forwards I am moving backwards even if it doesn’t appear so.

Nothing stands still! The whole universe (everything) is made up of energy. Energy cannot stand still, it must move. To not act is to move backwards. I desire success more than I desire acceptance. I do not play this game not to lose, I play this game to win. By me winning doesn’t mean anyone else loses. I know that one of the many decisions I make will result in success and that others will result in failure. But the failures will increase my chances of winning if I fully accept and absorb the lessons which my failures have paid for. So simply, I always play to win.
One of the ultimate truths of success is the more money I spend on financial knowledge, the more money I will make. I do not look for free advice as successful people expect to pay for it. Free advice can often end up being the most expensive advice of all. People with success driven mindsets focus on personal growth. To have more I must become more. By reading a book or this material I am planting a seed or watering a seed already planted. However, the action of acquiring more knowledge on its own will not make me successful, it requires that I act, make decisions and continually take steps in the direction of my desires, accepting and surrendering to everything along the way, removing all the viruses from my mind. Once there mentally through conscious intention I create success in anything I desire to do.

As a person with a success driven mindset I focus on what I enjoy doing, on my bliss. Without a success driven mindset, I would do what I must to stay comfortable and not lose out. When I recognised this in myself I accepted it fully and surrendered to it, and went back to basics and continued removing the viruses.

I love life and the abundance that money brings. True success gives me more peace and contentment and the money allows me to fully live my life and treat those around me. Money is also a seed for greater adventure.

As a person with a success driven mindset I do not put myself purposely into environments where I can be sublimely affected by garbage. As a successful person, I break out from the job and poverty trap, with my mind focussed on only good things. By doing this, success is guaranteed as thoughts must find their vibrational match. I get more of whatever I focus upon.

I sever my connections to all things negative, and give all my dominant attention to achieving success. I give up the pressure of having to achieve it by a certain time or in a certain way. I have the freedom to create without any negativity and with no time or financial pressure.

This is when I need to watch my mind carefully as my ego is on the lookout. I allow any negativity to come to the surface and observe it. I shine the light of my consciousness on it and allow the real obstacles to emerge. That way I can deal with them. I write them down and I will deal with them in a later process.

I eradicate every unsuccessful thought pattern as this is essential to creating my success. It is not hard work and just involves thinking. For me to be successful I need to know with certainty that I am successful and will be successful in the future. But my ego knows that it can allow me this feeling of certainty because its greatest power over me is that of an erosive force. Every second that passes from my point of knowing it, my resolve to it happening weakens. And on my journey to success, I have found myself thinking on some occasions ‘I thought I was nearly there’, when a plan or a dream hasn’t delivered the results I thought it would, or knew it would at one point. On these occasions, it was because my ego had eroded my resolve to the point where I could not attain the success I once knew I could. But because it happened slowly and I was not present and conscious, it was easy for my ego to have its way and ‘protect’ me. This is the principal thing I need to guard against, and the reason most do not become successful despite their efforts.

Because of this I continuously work on my mind and maintaining a state of knowing and living a state of knowing through having completed the process of ‘Creating a Bug Free Mind’. It is a core bug which is only found and dealt with through honest observation and practise of this material. I snap myself into the present so that I can defeat this subtle but powerful bug. I use thought provokers to help me.

If I find it, I accept and surrender to it. By acceptance of where I am now, and not fighting it I can move forward and do what is necessary to achieve my designs. If I leave the blinkers on I am creating an invisible barrier to my success which I cannot get over with that mindset, so its critical that I not delude myself into believing my ego. Where I am is where I am and is the foundation from which I plan a course to get where I desire to go.

This is a continuous process which doesn’t’ ever finish. So, re-reading and re-tuning is something that I work into my routine. Most importantly, applying the techniques and practises erodes my egos control. I am using the same weapon it uses against me to defeat it. It is preventative medicine. If I don’t take the medicine, then the virus will re-appear and re-take control and convince me otherwise. This is the way it is. My mind requires continuous exercise to prevent the viruses from screwing up a successful life.

If I don’t do this I am 100% certain to fail. My ego wants me to forget about this and carry on as it will convince me that I am successful even if I don’t regularly re-read and re-tune, accept, surrender, study the failures, keep to the path and know that I will get there. Most coaches and success teachers don’t know this. I am committed to this myself and to helping others find this truth about how success works.

Why Do I Believe in Luck?

Why Do I Believe in Luck?
Continuing my study of A Bug Free Mind by Andy Shaw.


I mentioned last week that I had some uncertainty about upcoming events in my life. Well one of those was the contract I am currently working under which is coming to an end at the end of November. I was made an offer which was permanent but less money at the bottom line. I decided to take my time and check things out before making any decisions. I plan on becoming a full-time online marketer sometime during 2017. Those who know me know that previous attempts have not worked out quite as planned, so this time I am focused on getting my mind straight first. With that in mind I explored other options and lo and behold, there are a myriad of opportunities out there. So, I know things are always working out for me therefore this time I am taking my time and waiting for the perfect opportunity to arrive which I know it will very soon. In the meantime, as usual, my study of Andy Shaw’s material is very pertinent to the current situation. Below is my summary of Chapter 4 of Using a Bug Free Mind.

Luck is chance. Fortunate people merely use chance by stacking the deck in their favor. Believing in luck is making a lack statement to the universe. It displays a lack of control and a reliance on an external force. I know chance exists and I bank on it which is why I prepare for chance to fall my way. I simply change the rules so that I can win. But this win isn’t against another person. I ensure nothing I do in life creates a loser. This is a win for myself with no loss to anyone else. To have a winner, there doesn’t always have to be a loser.
I have a luck manufacturing plant in my head which works for me 24/7. Lucky people make it happen, unlucky people ask what happened!

‘Good luck is simply preparedness meeting opportunity’ (Oprah Winfrey).

This is the perfect recipe for success. I accept uncertainty as an essential part of my experience and create ‘good luck’. In my willingness to accept uncertainty, solutions spontaneously appear. It was not luck in the way most people think, it was just preparedness meeting opportunity and in the process good luck is created.

• Luck is chance
• I prepare for chance to fall my way
• Nothing I do in life creates a loser
• I have a luck manufacturing plant in my head
• Good luck is simply preparedness meeting opportunity
• In my willingness to accept uncertainty solutions spontaneously appear
• Life is about winning

Creating Your Design For Your Ideal Life

Creating Your Design For Your Ideal Life
Continuing my study of A Bug Free Mind by Andy Shaw.


Lately I have been absorbed by many things in relation to big forthcoming changes in my life. Some on the health front, some on the career front, and also a recent decision to move house early next year. With all of this in mind my study of Law of Attraction / Creation has become even more important in my life. So this, chapter 3 of Using A Bug Free Mind by Andy Shaw came just as I need to hear exactly this. That I am in control of my destiny once I am in control of my mind.

I read something on facebook this morning “The thing that makes a man a man is his mind. Everything else you can find in a pig or a horse”. Our mind and more particulrly our intuition is the part of us that is connected to a higher power which, when we decide something, is right there with us, creating ideas, co-incidences, unexpected phone calls or meetings, all part of a grand orchestration of our future. With this is mind, this is my review and summary of chapter 3, Creating Your Design for Your Ideal Life.

I go from creating by accident to creating by design. And instead of finding it hard, I find it easy. It does however involve a big shift in perspective, and I have access to the most powerful tool on earth, my mind.

This is not something I just read, it is something I do, think about, re-read, apply, adjust and always remain totally detached from the attainment of my desires. Each bit is one small single step. I don’t look at the whole thing, I just ask myself can I do this next little bit. I remember to kill off any overwhelm immediately I feel it starting. I remember that I have all the time in the world. This is all about thinking.

The past is the past, the present is now and only I can decide to wake up from my sleep so that I can consciously decide for myself what to do, so I can hear my own voice over my ego’s. Am I worth the effort?

I have the ability to create on purpose at will. I have regained control over my natural ability to do all on purpose which every human has. I create the mindset of success for myself. It is simply a process and once I conceive it I know I can do it. I can create without effort. It is natural to me. I just need to start using it in other areas of my life. I stick with this information until I finally absorb it and it becomes my default thinking and I can achieve my goals easily. Every single thing I achieve in life, and have achieved in life, has been through goal-setting. That is the easy part. The harder part is deciding exactly what I desire and I am doing that now. I recognise that I set and achieve goals every day.

Whatever my mind can conceive and know it can create. The first step is to know. Then life gets easier. There is power in the word conceive!! It is the birth of creation. However, this effort requires a mental commitment most are not willing to make, but I have made that commitment and will see it through to the attainment of my desires. It takes zero effort to do most things I do in a day because they are programmed responses. I now set about programming my mind for success, to create the life I desire. And it will come without effort.

• I go from creating by accident to creating by design
• I just focus on the next step
• I am worth the effort
• I hear my own voice over my ego’s
• Creating a success mindset is simply a process
• I absorb this information until it becomes my default thinking and I can achieve my goals easily
• Whatever my mind can conceive and know it can create
• I have made the mental commitment to see this through to the attainment of my desires
• I now program my mind for success

Seeing is Believing Right?…….Wrong!

Seeing is Believing Right?……Wrong!
Continuing my study of A Bug Free Mind by Andy Shaw.


Belief is pure unnatural weakness beefed up. Believing is weak, ‘knowing’ is strong. The word ‘know’ or the state of ‘knowing’ does not need any beefing up as it is all powerful.

When I observe my use of the word belief, I uncover a false belief, or a truth if it is a truth, and then I arrive at ‘knowing’. I now notice my use of the word belief and take advantage of the power my observation gives me. I remain present as I now deliberately start using the word ‘know’ instead of the word believe. I remain truthful to myself about what I discover in my use of the word ‘know’. I am looking for the feeling of certainty!

When I ‘know’ something, I ‘know’ it, there is certainty built in. it has happened and therefore, of course it will continue to happen. This is the essence of creating the life I desire; I have to ‘know’ it. ‘knowing’ it, is about having it have already happened and therefore ‘knowing’ it to be true. There is no boundary or limit to the word ‘know’. Even in its negative form it has certainty – I don’t ‘know’. It is worlds apart from believing. Nature does not need to believe anything and neither do I.
The fact that I am using this material puts me in the minority with an advantage over the majority. I change the world with the only thing I can control, my thoughts.

Science has proved that every possibility has already happened and therefore 99% of what I need to do is already done automatically. I just need to do the last bit to bring it into my reality. Whatever I desire is already out there looking for me, that’s the way it works. If I were to say “I’ll believe it when I see it” then I am putting up a barrier to it coming into my reality. Whatever I desire, I need to see it first in my mind and ‘know’ it’s real.

I ‘know’ there are an abundance of opportunities, I ‘know’ there will always be plenty for me to pick up anytime I’m ready. I don’t need to see them to ‘know’ they are there.

I experience in life what I am deeply convinced is so. Whatever I am conscious of I will experience. I will experience in life whatever I ‘know’ is so., and if I don’t ‘know’ it before I see it, then I will never see it. When I genuinely expect it, I’ll see it.

I keep going with this material until I have a bug free mind. Only then will things work out the way I desire them to. Nothing else will work. I don’t allow my ego to distract me from this truth., otherwise I am postponing the life I desire. This is my life. I am now awake to the significance of the part of the journey of my life that I am on right now.


• Believing is weak, ‘knowing’ is strong
• I am looking for the feeling of certainty
• ‘Knowing’ is about have had it already happen
• What I desire is also looking for me
• I see it first ion my mind and ‘know’ it is real
• I will never run out of opportunities
• When I ‘know’ it is so then I will experience it.
• I am aware of the significance of this stage of my life and growth

Am I Worth the Effort?

Do I Think I am Worth the Effort?
Continuing my study of A Bug Free Mind by Andy Shaw.


I started this blog in January 2013 in an attempt to bring some success, career and financial security mainly, into my life. I have had many false starts and stalls along the way. I got distracted, bought into other things, typical shiny object syndrome type of thing. But something kept drawing me back here to Andy Shaw’s books. Of course, once I got back into reading the books, I was then obliged to come back to the blog. The blog doesn’t get that much traffic, but that doesn’t bother me as it is an exercise I set for myself to be transparent about my progress. I am about a quarter way through the 2nd book for the 4th time, going very slowly this time. But as far as the blog is concerned, this is my summary of the last chapter in Book 1 and so is a milestone for me, as it is something that I have now completed. There are few things in my life I can say that about – completed! But I am proud that this is one of them. This represents for me something a bit like a coming of age, a maturing. More than anything it is a realization of the truth of the philosophy in these books, as I have seen first hand in my own life the effects of when I follow the advice / instructions, and the results when I don’t. Here follows my interpretation and summary of chapter 28 of Creating A Bug Free Mind by Andy Shaw.

I have a choice about everything in my life with 2 exceptions;
1. That one day I will die and ….
2. I have to live every day until I die.

Everything else is a choice. I am worth the effort. I will stay here and not move on until my mind is fixed. When it is, when I master this I will be able to help others, my family, my friends, perhaps lots of others through my writings and my businesses. I am already on my way to holding a light for others to follow. I have asked, I have stayed with it, I have manifested this resource which has the power to change lives, starting with my own. There is no longer any pain associated with creating the life I desire. It is now fun, because I love it.

I am aware that my ego will attempt to trip me up. I will overcome this through re-tuning and re-reading my summaries on an on-going basis and the whole book plus the audios periodically. This is my turning point, my point of choice. To stay with this, and not allow life to get in the way, not allow study of another system – yet. I know that there are obstacles I will find along the way. This material is my detailed plan for how to clear my mind of all bugs. It has changed my life and given me awesome power. Anything that takes me off track is not worth it.

Through the Law of Least Effort, all I need to do is re-read my golden book regularly and keep my summaries with me at all times. I will not leave this until my success is certain. When this happens I feel a huge shift in my mental state. It doesn’t matter how long this takes. The result is I now have total self-confidence and an ability to handle any situation, with ease. I know for certain I will attain my goals. I am free of all fear, worry, stress and overwhelm. If they appear again I know exactly what to do to get rid of them. I now know what I want and I have a detailed plan of how to get there. I am not concerned with what happens along the way. I can transform the words of this material into pure magic using the power of my mind.

My ego relies on my ability to see what’s good for me as work. It relies on my ability to be easily distracted from doing the little things which make a massive difference. I now have the choice to either become a master or go back to settling for less, working for an authority figure and regretting past failures and lack of success. I choose to become a master manifester. My life is and will be the sum of my choices.


• I have a choice about everything
• I am worth the effort
• I am a light for others to follow the path
• I am aware of my ego’s subterfuge
• I will stay with this system until I mater it
• This is my turning point

The New Skills and Magical Powers I Now Have

The New Skills and Magical Powers I Now Have
Continuing my study of A Bug Free Mind by Andy Shaw.


Success is nospiritual-patht the things that I make happen, it is the person I become. It only happens when I quieten the voice in my head and listen to my intuition.

The life I desire is already real. If it’s a possibility then it is real (proven by scientists), I just need to take the steps to bring it into my reality. My very best thinking has got me to where I am today. For where I am now to change, my thinking must change. I commit to changing my thinking in order to change my life. I continue to re-tune and re-read this material to keep my mind running smoothly. These are the pages that contain the truth for me, I don’t need nor will I go searching for another answer. I have the answer here.

When I succeed the reason is that I have unconsciously changed my default thinking to the correct way to create, and when that happens everything I do works out for me without effort. When I get the signs of that, I just make sure I continue to re-tune and re-read, stay present and focused on my desires. I am directly responsible for everything in my life and I have found the resource which gives me the answers I was looking for and which I will continue to go to for the answers to all my questions and desires.

My desire to succeed is great and the odds are stacked in my favor as a result of this material. I KNOW it works. I KNOW success in all things is the result of what I have learned here. I accept what is, I surrender to what is, I focus on positive thoughts and I meditate and arrive at no-mind regularly. To turn away from this now would be a huge waste, as I am so close. I am not in a race or a competition with anyone but myself. I remain present and live in the Now. I re-read and absorb all the knowledge here so that it becomes my dominant mind-set. This material helps to break the usual rules about success and makes it available to anyone, including me.

No bones about it, my goal is to get rich. This will inspire others to ask how, and then I can share this information with others to help them get rich also. This is good work and helps the world and pays dividends way into the future. I remain on my guard against my ego who doesn’t want any of this to happen as it’s afraid for its survival.

Judgement strengthens my ego’s position. This is why few people breakthrough – it is at this point right now where critical decisions are made. This stuff works. I KNOW it does, and I choose to move forward into my success. I can’t change the past but I can and now do change my future.

This is not work, this is my passion and it is giving me ultimate power. I have in this resource the answers to my questions, the anti-virus for the human mind. I found this and manifested it, read it, re-read it and have experienced the changes. I KNOW this to be true. I am cautious of my ego, distracting me with unnecessary stuff. But when I read I am tuned in to the ‘correct radio station’ where my answers lie.

Change or the same?

My choice is change. I submerge myself into this information continuously until change becomes automatic. I don’t move on to anything else until this happens. I need a Bug Free Mind in order to create the life I desire. Repetition is a master skill. It ensures I actually do know the stuff I think I know.

Change or the same? I choose change.

• When making decisions I do it from my intuition.
• I win or I learn, mistakes are ok.
• When I am unsure about a move, I wait until I see pain, discomfort and risk in remaining.
• My mind will sell me out, my intuition will not.
• My ego believes it will lose out, and perhaps not even survive.
• The past is over. I live in the NOW, this is all that matters.
• Life will not progress until the lesson has been learned.
• Success is about who I become as a person.
• The answer to success is in these pages. I re-read and re-tune regularly to keep my mindset correct.
• The odds are stacked in my favour because of this material.
• This becomes my dominant mindset.
• My goal is to get rich and inspire others to do the same.
• I guard against my ego, and judgement.
• I know this works and I choose to use it to move forward towards my desires.
• Change or the same? I choose change.

Re-Learning to Trust My Intuition and Ignore My Mind

Re-Learning to Trust My Intuition and Ignore My Mind
Continuing my study of A Bug Free Mind by Andy Shaw.

Person thinkingI will remain present when making decisions. Rule 1. When I don’t know what to do I do nothing. Rule 2. All my decisions are instinctive. The result I get is the one I need at the time. I win or I learn. Mistakes along the way are just course corrections similar to any journey. I have clearly defined where I want to go so all decisions I reach will help me get there. When I don’t do this I get to a blurred vision of my future which will not be what I wanted. So I always remember that clarity is essential in this area.

I only move forward when my logical mind is forced to move forward. Appropriate procrastination is ok. When I come to the point where I see pain, discomfort and risk in remaining where I am rather than moving forward, then I act. This is how I make powerful and correct decisions, and eliminate doubt. My instincts have a direct connection to everything I do and are therefore in tune with every possibility. Whereas my mind is limited to what I already know. If I just use my mind to decide things, then I am repeating the same mistakes over and over again. When it comes to creating the life I desire my mind will sell me out, my intuition will not. So I trust my intuition and ignore my mind when facing decisions about moving forward in my life. So I take the time to observe my decision making process and see if my mid is making the important decisions or my intuition. If my ego is in charge, it believes I will lose out or even lose everything if I follow my intuition. If I am not living the life I desire then I’ve let my mind decide too many things and its time to start trusting my intuition again.

I can do this stuff. I’ve done it before so I just need to make sure I remain present and listen to my intuition and make decisions from there. Any mess-ups from the past don’t matter. What has happened has happened – it is what it is. If I apply any effort to it or thought to it will bring about more of the same. Now is the only moment that will ever matter, so it is only what I think and do now that can help bring about the life I desire. I am here for a purpose, if a thought can change the world, then I can contribute to the world in a far more powerful way that I would otherwise have.
If I feel stuck it is an illusion. Step 1 is to accept what is and that it is an illusion. If I have not moved on it is because I have not learned something, or not accepted and surrendered to something. Life will not progress because it needs me to figure ‘a bit’ out. So I become present, relax, and ask what it is I must learn. I keep doing this until I have my answer. The answer always comes – but not from my mind. When I stop listening to my mind and start listening to my intuition (my heart) it will never let me down. If it seems like it has, then that is because I have not learned the lesson I’ve been given, or that I have not set out my desires clearly enough. I regularly sit and listen to my intuition and by doing so I find my purpose. It is important that I remember to always love myself, treat myself well and not create any more bad stuff in my life. If I want my desired outcome, then I spend more time getting to know myself better and continue the process of looking at my decision-making process. I re-tune regularly until this becomes a habit.

I stop thinking bad stuff about myself. I observe my feelings and recognise what is going on inside. In observation and acceptance, I am growing new habits, new thought processes, I am thinking differently. Future change has just happened. Presence and observation changes my results, changes my outcome. Judgement and self-criticism is not required and not helpful.
There is nothing to fear from myself, the deeper I look at myself the more I learn, the more will be revealed to me, the more I will enjoy life, enjoy the journey. The only right way to think about anything is not at all, or to see a positive outcome to whatever the situation is.

This is a process of change and I am breaking down the barriers I have created by seemingly insignificant incorrect thought patterns, which stop the creative mechanism in its tracks. If a thought doesn’t help me then it pulls me in the opposite direction. So I cut the noise. I do not feel sorry. I can help and give money or support to a person or a cause without feeling sorry for them. Seeing a positive outcome is key. No thought stands still. I listen to my intuition in silence. I use the tools I have learned to lower the volume, cut out the noise. When I master this I can ask questions and receive answers. I can use this to feel what having my desires is like, before they arrive. This is the creation engine. My intuition is my best friend.

• When I don’t know what to do I do nothing
• I always get the result I need at the time
• This points me to where I need to go or to learn
• I get clear on my desires
• I get in touch with my intuition and wait until I am impelled to move forward
• The past doesn’t matter
• Now is all that matters
• My thoughts can help change the world
• Life will continue with a lesson until it is learned
• Presence and observation changes my outcome
• I listen to my intuition in silence and get the answers to everything

How to Kill Off Overwhelm for Good

How to Kill Off Overwhelm for Good
Continuing my study of A Bug Free Mind by Andy Shaw.

overwhelmed2Being overwhelmed is the same as doing nothing, and far more unpleasant. I remove myself from this mental disease as soon as possible. It is something that exists not on the outside but on the inside. So it can only harm me if I allow it. I am creating new pathways and patterns in my mind and as they become more established then it becomes harder for the older patterns to return.

First I become selective and start doing less. This is the path of the productive. I focus purely on the productive, important few tasks and ignore the rest. Things won’t get done, the unimportant will get missed and some unimportant people will get upset. This is all part of the process of killing off overwhelm. My ego attracts these unimportant things and people in an attempt to keep me in the old patterns and prevent change.

However, while many unimportant things did not get done, the important few got my full attention and got completed in a timely fashion and with a good result. These are the tasks which help me create the life I desire and stop my old ways from affecting me. When considering important tasks, I pause and refuse to rush. I ask questions of myself slowly and observe my ego’s reaction to them. I observe how it all makes me feel and then I reach a decision. I always remember…I can’t lie to myself…my ego will attempt to, but I always know it. This makes sure I don’t allow my ego to prevent me moving towards the life I desire. I re-tune and re-read frequently to ensure I have established a new thought pattern.

When I do something I slow down to ensure I am not rushing, I still go as fast as I can but without that feeling of being in a hurry. The Law of Least Effort is all about the ease of allowing. When I know that I have allowed myself to become busy I stop and smell the roses. I relax and enjoy the moment of control I now have over rushing. I know that a minimum of 80% of my results comes from 20% of my efforts. If I apply the Law of Least Effort I will only ever need to be doing the 20% which leaves the other 80% free for me to create the life I desire. This is very similar to the 4-hour work week. I know I don’t need to work hard to create a huge success, I don’t need to work 40 hours on it. Anyway, when I am doing what I love doing, it is not work. I regularly ask myself; am I being productive or am I just being active?

I have a short must-do list. I just drop stuff, if it’s important it will keep coming back and then I’ll know it and do it. I take the time to practise this as it is an essential skill. I just keep asking myself – is this in the 20% that gets me results? If I only accomplish this today will I be happy with my day? I am no longer afraid to let things go. I no longer care what others think about this. I always ensure I accomplish at least one must-do task every day as this eliminates any feelings of overwhelm. It replaces it with a feeling of satisfaction. These cannot exist side-by-side at the same time.

Here is how I see financial success:

1. I see myself as a financial success but don’t figure out how I got there.
2. I let go of getting there and how I will get there.
3. I find something which works for others which I love doing and I have decided to do that.
4. I expect this to be successful and I am an expert in this technique for making money.
5. If others can do it so can I.
6. I know this to be true – my ego tries to undermine this knowledge but I am aware of this and do not allow it.
7. I continue to delve into it and keep going, keep learning and growing my expertise.
8. When my emotional guidance system compels me to act, I don’t hesitate and I jump in.
9. Mistakes are inevitable and a path to becoming an expert.

I constantly read and re-read my subject because life tends to get in the way otherwise. I know financial success comes as a by-product of me doing what I love doing. I am content now and eagerly anticipating more and better to come. I know everything works out at the right time and in the right way. I am not in a rush for any specific goal. Nothing will be missed as anything I don’t notice at first will come back to me until I do. I accept how everything plays out without stress or anxiety. So in a nutshell once I have designed what I desire to happen, nothing will be missed, nothing can be lost and nothing can be forgotten, so I can just relax, have fun and enjoy my hobby now. I know this with certainty!

I do not put deadlines on my Internet Marketing work or my blog. To me this is all a pleasure to do and I can spend as much time as I want doing it. It will finish at exactly the right time when it’s good and ready. Why would I interrupt it? That would turn pleasure into pain.

I don’t have emergencies in my life as I decided I didn’t like them. What used to be an emergency is now a slightly larger obstacle than usual. These obstacles happen less and less and become less of a problem as they do. As a rule, my problems solve themselves or disappear, so I actually don’t have any problems.

When a problem presents itself, I take 17 seconds to remember what a wonderful life I have and then I go on with my day. The problem is no longer a problem and goes away or becomes an easy task.

Like all other mental ailments, overwhelm is my creation. The cure is, I stop creating it. I remain present. I systemise my life where possible. I determine my priorities in advance. I don’t fight overwhelm as anything I fight gets bigger, it is an illusion and I drop it.


When I state to myself that I have no time, it is real to me. Therefore, it is real to my subconscious, it perpetuates the perception of a lack of time. The act of not ‘wanting’ this state creates it. I kill this off by noticing that I’ve created it, by becoming present. This state cannot exist if I am present, my ego creates it to keep me busy. Feelings of being busy or rushing are things I create every day if I am not present. I accept and surrender to the fact that I’ve created them. Nature again is the teacher here. I observe nature and let it calm and soothe me, I then observe my ego and see what I am creating. When I do this, feelings of rushing or having no time, dissolve. Hard work creates more hard work. Having no time creates more having no time. I stop forcing things and things get better.

When I use the Law of Least Effort I create less to do thereby creating more time. I do less and create more. I have to know this works for this to work. I go out of my way to do time-consuming and enjoyable things to demonstrate that I have an abundance of time. When I think I have enough time, then I have enough time. When I think I have more than enough time then I have more than enough time. What I think I create so I know I have plenty of NOW to do all I desire. I remove all the barriers, one at a time, observe them and remain present. I know I will accomplish all I need and want to do.


• Overwhelm is a mental ailment and I am creating new neural pathways and patterns in my mind to deal with it.
• Overwhelm is the work of my ego to keep me busy.
• I start by dropping unimportant things and allow them to not get done. I allow the consequences.
• I focus only on the small number of important things that get results, the 80:20 rule.
• I watch my feelings carefully regarding these tasks, I take them slowly and deliberately to completion.
• I observe the Law of Least Effort. I do less and create more.
• I get more of what I am doing, what I am giving my dominant attention to.
• If I drop something important, it will come back to me. So I never miss anything important.
• I accomplish one must-do task every day.
• Life gets in the way, so I regularly re-read and re-tune.
• I know everything works out at the right time and in the right way.
• Nothing will be missed, nothing can be lost or forgotten.
• I don’t have emergencies.
• I don’t put deadlines on things I love doing.
• I systemise as much as possible.
• I never rush, I am never busy. I have an abundance of time.
• I know this works.

Doing Less And Creating More

Doing Less And Creating More
Continuing my study of A Bug Free Mind by Andy Shaw.

Woman meditating.“Create Rules and People Will Break Them”

The less I do the more I create. This is the answer to having an abundance of time. This is a new thought pattern that needs to grow until it becomes dominant. Then everything gets easier. I do less and less and create more and more. This is the Law of Least Effort.

In nature, there is no effort; trees just grow, rivers just flow, fish just swim, all without any trying or effort.

The harder I work, then the more hard work I get since the Universe “thinks” I want more hard work. The hard work is all actually done in my mind. It is actually a lot harder to create poverty and disease than it is to create health wealth and happiness because these are the natural order of things the way they should be.

I simply decide what I desire, I know I have the ability to get it, and I let go of how it is going to happen.

I fully expect what I desire to come to me but I let go of how that will happen. I know that whatever I desire, it desires me too. After I decide on my desires, I give them up. Because I know they will come to me, my knowing passes to my sub-conscious and then it also “knows” it is true and takes over bringing them to me in the perfect way and at the perfect time.

At times when I don’t know what to do I do nothing. I wait until my emotions move me in a particular direction, my mind will lie to me, my emotions will not. I give my expectations of how things should be before I experience them.

My ideas can come to me at any time as long as I am present and in touch with my subconscious self. My subconscious know what is best for me and what I am truly capable of, so I do my best to be guided by my instincts. Therefore, I now look forward to whatever happens to me…..whatever slows me down…..since I know it will have been sent to help me. Even obstacles. If I fail to learn the lesson they were sent for, the lesson will be sent again, until it is learned. The more I trust my instincts the quicker the lessons are learned.

I know I can find people and empower them, and they will do a far better job than I would. I only know something if I am applying it. I regularly review my use of the word “know”. When I use it correctly and apply what I know I become a person who creates success in all things. I let go of struggling and believing as all they get me is more struggling and believing.

When I stop thinking something is hard, at first it will be less hard, then it becomes easy.

Lao Tzu
“In the study of The Way, each day something is dropped. Less and less do I have to force things until finally I arrive at the place of non-action. Where nothing is done and nothing remains undone.”

I create through my thoughts, not my actions. Purposeful creation only happens when I am present, in the moment. Action is the means by which I collect what I have created in my mind. I continue to reduce my actions until my emotions push me to act in a specific, logical and obvious way. Practise of this gives me the power to change the parts of me that need to be changed and keep the good parts. It also allows me to recognise procrastination and instinctual waiting and the difference between the two. Either way it is impossible to always have perfect information every time before making a decision, so mistakes are inevitable and part of the learning process.

If I create a thought process that doesn’t support me i.e. depression, then I can create another one to cancel it out by simply deciding to. I remember to accept and surrender to everything and apply what I’ve learned, remain present and enjoy life to the full, always reaching for the thought that feels the best. Just the act of looking for one will always enable me to find one.

I never struggle to get what I desire, I know I have enough time and all the skills necessary to receive it in the right way and at the right time.

I consciously stop being busy. Even if I am under pressure to get stuff done, I stop being busy inside. Busy is a feeling, and I choose not to feel it. I do what needs to be done without resentment and expending little effort. The reason I have work I do not like is because I am not accepting it. So I observe it and don’t judge it, accept it and move on. Now when I have a task that needs doing and I don’t want to do it I use this checklist:

1. I become present.
2. I observe my feelings.
3. I remember only good thoughts get me where I desire to go.
4. I don’t have to feel good or bad about this, I just have to do it.
5. I am not busy; I am not rushed.
6. I am now going to do the job knowing the sense of satisfaction after it is done will be good.
7. I am going to appreciate doing the job now because it is giving me an opportunity while doing it to focus on ways of doing it quicker and easier or ways to not do it at all.
8. I am relaxed and know I create a better outcome for myself because when I change the way I look at things; the things I look at change.

Acceptance means I can have a lot of crap in my day but still have a great day. Acceptance leads to freedom.

When I find myself in a hurry it means I am no longer present and the universe gives me what I am asking for, more of being in a hurry. The universe is neutral and gives me more of what I am asking for. If I want stress, pressure, rushing, I’ve got it. If I want ease, relaxation, happiness, I’ve got it.

So the answer is to interrupt the destructive patterns, do the opposite…..slow down deliberately, ‘I have plenty of time’ , ‘I enjoy doing this’, ‘I accept I have to do this but I choose how I feel about it’, ‘I accomplish more by doing less’, ‘most things make no difference’.

Being busy is a form of laziness and my ego can easily fill my day with ‘stuff’ I can do without thinking.

• The less I do the more I create
• There is no effort in nature
• Whatever I am thinking and doing the universe gives me more of the same
• I decide what I desire, I know it is created and I let go of how it will happen
• Whatever I desire it desires me too
• When I don’t know what to do I do nothing
• I remain present and my subconscious will guide me to the best thoughts and actions for me
• Everything comes to me for a reason. If don’t learn the lesson, it will keep showing up until I do
• I trust my instincts
• I create success in all things
• “In the study of the way, each day something is dropped. Less and less do I have to force things until finally I arrive at a place of non-action, where nothing is done and nothing remains undone” Lao Tzu
• Purposeful creation only happens when I am present
• Any anxiety present is an indication that it is not time to act
• I never have perfect information before making a decision
• I reach for the thought that feels the best and I always find one
• Busy is a feeling and I choose not to feel it
• The universe is neutral and gives me more of what I am asking for
• If I want to have it, I first have to have it!
