Have you ever had the feeling that you were here for a reason?

I have felt this way for many years and no matter what I do I always end at the cross-road.  Like most of you, I began to read various books, trying to gather information together from Inspirational, Affirmation's and Self- Help books, including "Think and Grow Rich and The Secret"to name but a few. I also watched video's and  webinar's but still nothing seemed to actually work. I followed my spiritual path for many year's until one morning I awoke and I didn't feel the same about it anymore.
Last week whilst surfing the Internet I came across another self- help book. This one was called "A Bug Free Mind" written by Andy Shaw. His website offered free viewing of the first five chapters, of both books "Creating A Bug Free Mind and Using A Bug Free Mind" if you registered .Well I just had to read them, supposing  I never went any further, I thought I could then tick another self help book off my list. So I signed up and started reading...

The first chapter is all about taking back control of your mind from your ego. You need to think of a happy memory and then try and hold it for up to fifteen seconds to begin with. I know this sounds simple but I found it quite difficult at the start as I could not think of a happy memory at that time. Once you have your memory you must apply it regularly throughout your day.  Andy's ideas are good and he seems to have the patience of a saint.

The introduction was excellently written and the language really helps to attract your attention. Alan is down to earth and his intention is to help you turn your life around. He strongly emphasises that you must try hard to build your foundation ready to apply his techniques. As I read on I felt as though Alan, was sitting in the chair opposite me, calmly explaining  "Creating A Bug Free Mind," and how to take control of it. His words were clear, concise and I found I understood everything he conveyed. .He  suggested re-reading chapters and paragraph's until you grasp the contents and their meanings,, then apply accordingly..At first it was hard to grasp and keep it for five seconds let alone fifteen seconds. By the third attempt I was able to hold it for almost fifteen seconds.. I continued to practise throughout my day's and .by day three I was up to 20 seconds. By day four I thought I had almost mastered it and was able to hold it for ten minutes. Then this morning while driving home in my car I became aware that something was different about me.Needless to say, I'm hooked and yesterday, I purchased two of his books!  If you would like to know more just click on this link

  1. It's great when you find something that you can really identify with and it certainly sounds as if you've found something that really works for you.

    Good luck on your 'journey'.
