Be inspired. Take that leap!

by John Robson on December 10, 2014

You wake up, eat breakfast, clean up a bit then head to work. Now you’re stuck in a cubicle doing a job you’re not particularly fond of and you do this 8 hours a day, 5 days a week. At one point, you will begin to get a sense of that feeling gnawing inside you just wanting to break free. You don’t exactly know what it is yet, but you know you have to get out.

But when you do start planning out what you want to happen, you hit yourself with a reality check and beat up yourself again telling yourself, “It’s just not possible”. You then sink back in your chair wishing you had never entertained that thought in the first place.

Well, you’re not the first person who has this feeling. In fact, many of us are guilty of this. However, 1 out of 10 people will eventually have the guts to say: “It is possible, I can do it.” Then they begin to really live out their lives.

Here are some stories I’ve read on the internet about people who have actually decided to push themselves off the cliff and just feel the plunge. Who knows, one of these people might be living out your dream and inspire you to do so as well.

Remember, it’s never too late to live out your dreams. Stop letting other people live the life you want, instead start taking ownership of the life you’ve always dreamed of.

Do you have a message to share with others?

by John Robson on December 9, 2014

developing intuition

  • Feel a deep urge to clarify and share
    your unique message to the world…
  • Love personal growth and want to earn
    some money in this field…
  • Would like ideas on how to create
    multiple income streams …
  • Would content made available to you …

Better yet, would you like my ongoing support?

Then I would love to work with you and turn
your dream into reality. To personally coach
you in designing your ideal workshop.

For over 12 years, I (John) have been training and
supporting hundreds of facilitators to find their
unique niche, create their ideal personal
development programs and present and market
them effectively.

Their motives varied considerably from:

  • just finding and supporting their own inner,
    passion and growth,
  • sharing their wisdom with friends or small
    groups,
  • complementing their coaching service, or
  • creating a profitable facilitator service – through
    the Internet or live.

This year, 2014, I have completed:

  • upgrades to our facilitation and marketing
    handbooks,
  • offering a facilitator group for sharing and
    collaboration,
  • a certification option,
  • an in-depth “Find your Passion and Niche
    in Life” workbook,
  • a new “A Virtual, Automated,
    Residual Business Model” booklet, and
  • content options for your website and service.

We have charged the same, very reasonable price for
the last 12 years, but on January 1, 2015, the price of
Higher Awareness’s Facilitator Training Program
will be increasing.

I would be honoured to support you in finding your
unique niche and passion, and creating, sharing
and marketing your own programs, live or
through the Internet.

Before I started HigherAwareness.com, in one year
I had over 1000 adults through my living
room taking journaling, creativity, personal
growth, intuition development and life purpose
workshops. I would like to show you how to do that.

I will also help you explore other ways of
marketing your business and creating multiple
income streams.

We are only limited by our own thinking. I look
forward to helping you break out of that box.

How are you blocking your Intuition?

by John Robson on November 5, 2014

Do you believe that you actually hold within you the wisdom needed to resolve your problems or queries about life? Well the answer is – ‘Yes, you do'; because all of us are innately intuitive. Our intuition is the way for our brain to bridge our conscious mind to our higher consciousness mind. As a result, we get access to the immense wisdom that we all hold within.

Having said this, why do we still have trouble accessing this treasure of wisdom within us? This is because the connection blocked. We may or may not know that we are actually blocking our intuition from developing.

So what intuition blocks do you have? We have listed down some basic intuition blocks that you may have in your life right now.

  1. Not being in control of your emotions – Emotions play a huge part in your ability to be in touch with your inner self. If you don’t know how to deal with them or if you keep them all bottled up inside, they can cloud your connection to your intuition. For you to develop intuition, you need to be able recognize your reactive emotions and deal with them head on. It may be hard, but once you’ve cleared it all up it’s easier to be in touch with your inner voice.
  2. Lack of calmness, silence and meditation – Intuition is just like our inner voice talking to us at certain points in our lives. But to be able to hear this inner voice clearly, we need to be able to step back from our busy lives and take time to just be with ourselves and listen. Even if it’s just a few minutes a day, silence or meditation allows us to be with your thoughts and emotions; this is the best way to develop your
  3. Personal beliefs – As they say, our biggest enemy in life is our own selves. Sometimes our beliefs about life and what we value can come in the way trusting our intuition. You can hold all the answers to life’s biggest mysteries, but if you don’t believe it yourself you won’t be able to bring it out. You end up setting limitations on your own abilities. Knowing yourself and your beliefs will help you determine what you need to work on in order to bring out your intuitive nature.

These are just some of the many intuition blocks that could be stopping you from taking advantage of the pool of wisdom within you. So, how are you blocking your intuition? Are you ready to start listening to your inner voice? If you are, we’re here to help. Sample our Intuition Distinction program for FREE and start improving your intuition today!

Benefits of Developing Intuition

by John Robson on October 15, 2014

At one point in our lives, we’ve all had our share of our intuitive moments. It’s like a small voice within you tells you not to do or say what you were about to. Sometimes we listen to it but most of the time we don’t; and that choice to listen or not can ultimately have a huge effect on the result.

Intuition, simply put, is just that: a gentle, subtle voice within us, an inner guidance. In psychology it’s regarded as one of four major functions of the human mind. It’s a way to bridge our super-conscious to our sub-conscious to our conscious mind, which is why it’s a great source of creative power, understanding and wisdom.

There are a lot of people who have really taken the time to understand how to tap into our intuitive minds. As a result, they have amassed power, fortune, fun and/or fame just because they have learned how to follow their intuition when making important life or career-changing decisions.

Aside from power, fame, fun and fortune, there are many benefits we can get from developing our intuition that will improve our outlook in life and personal well-being. Below is a list of a few ways we can gain from learning to tap into our intuitive minds on a day to day basis.

Reduce stress when solving or dealing with problems.

Dealing with life challenges is one of the biggest sources of stress for anyone. But when you’re in touch with your intuitive mind, it easier to gain clarity and wisdom that could help you find the solution to your problems. Tapping into your intuition paves the way for you to find the solutions that are already within is, therefore reducing the stress of dealing with problems at a prolonged and slow rate.

Reveal hidden truths about you and your life.

Intuition puts you in touch with both your super-conscious and subconscious, and so you can eventually uncover personal truths about yourself that are not visible on the surface. And as you uncover these truths, you become more fully aware of your whole self.

In hind sight intuition offers 20/20 vision.

The intuition is a part of us that knows the way. Although sometimes it may not seem like the best decision or choice – trust it – as you will find out your hind sight will be 20/20 as you logically do not see the reasoning when you get the intuitive guidance.

There are other great benefits you can get from developing our intuition. How well have you been listening to your inner voice? If you haven’t, then now is the time to appreciate and tap into the intuitive mind that we all have.

Sample our free Intuition Distinctions and begin to develop your intuition today! Identify some of your blocks to intuition, how to improve your intuition and develop more spiritual discernment.

  • Helps you reduce stress by identifying and dealing with problems more effectively

  • Unleashes your creativity and imagination
  • Puts you in touch with your subconscious, and therefore helps you uncover hidden truths about yourself and situations in your life
  • By being in touch with your intuition, you prevent the buildup of negative emotions and thinking
  • Integrates left and right brain functions, giving you a more complete perspective on issues
  • Helps you make better, more integrative decisions
  • Improves physical, mental, emotional health

developing intuition

We live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Patrice and I were very fortunate to have the World Triathalon Grand Final, 5 blocks away from us in our river valley. It showcased various age group races, as well as an aquathlon, under 23, and junior and mixed relay world championships.

And then the next weekend on the street below us Tour de France heroes and national champion cyclists flew by us as they participated in a 7 day Tour of Alberta.

So we went to the start/finish gates and enjoyed a few days around some of the most physically fit, committed, aware and self disciplined people in the world. It was quite empowering. If they had a contest for a chubby senior at these events, I might have won since almost everyone was very athletic.

For 6 days bicyclists travelled throughout our province. They were very particular about what they ate, and drank, how they slept and how they did warm exercises so they could bike for hours each day. Again the intense discipline needed to be the best.

It was astounding the awareness and concentration they had riding in packs, inches away in all 4 directions as they leveraged the aerodynamics of the rider in front of them.

And then to see the teams from different countries lined up and alternating being the first rider, who has the most wind resistance.

It was a very inspiration and motivational few weekends.

Where in your life do you have the most discipline and commitment? – physically, sports, career, family, food, ideas, spirituality, friendships, etc.

A great way to attain more depth and perfection in life is emulate the discipline and commitment from your best area into another area that needs your support.

For example, my best commitment and discipline is towards my growth, ideas and intuition. I have my own daily practices and tracking systems. Now if I applied this level of commitment and discipline to my physical health and weight, I may be a winner in another area of my life.

For 3 workbooks on time management and self discipline, goal setting and tracking your goals, check out our self control programs.

To more commitment and discipline in what is important to you.

But first, ‘How clear are you about your purpose, passion and potentials?’

Have you ever experienced the enthusiasm, knowingness, love and power when you are in the flow of your purpose and passion? It is what makes life truly exciting, empowering and meaningful instead of putting up with old patterns of mediocrity, boredom and superficial experiences.

Today life is unfolding quickly and many of us would like time to participate more and get more out of life. To be alive, confident, energetic, flowing and to have more meaning in our lives. To unleash our unique gifts within us that are calling to be shared with the world.

It is well documented that our best experiences in life come when we are giving, sharing, expressing, creating, teaching, coaching, building, serving, etc. And this is in alignment with a universal law of the balance of giving and receiving – We have to give to get. We reap what we sow.

To experience passion we must be involved IN it instead of OUTSIDE of it looking in. It is in the immersion, being and knowingness that your passion is most powerful than just knowing ‘about’ or talking about it.

There is a way to free yourself from scratching the surface and being locked within your comfort zone.

And you do not have a be a great public speaker, author or presenter.

Just sharing your message informally around a table or in your living room or in a short booklet offer lots of opportunity to express your unique gifts and wisdom as you help others grow and learn. And as you create opportunities for inner learning and sharing you will feel your passion and energy as your participants experience their shifts, insights, learning and empowerment.

I have talked to many facilitators and most of them stated that their best spiritual experiences occur while facilitating groups. My 3 most profound life experiences have been while small groups have been immersed in their own inner journey.

If you have any inclination at all about finding and experiencing your passion and niche, giving back to others, clarifying your unique gifts or creating workbooks or discussions around your niche, read more of our blogs on workshop facilitating at:

4 Commitment Levels that Effect your Quality of Life

by John Robson on August 17, 2014

“Give life meaning through your commitments.” — Paul Reinert

How committed are you to what you do in your life?

Strong commitment reflects a path with heart. A path with heart fills us up with meaning, purpose and often joy. We truly live life when we care deeply and engage fully.

How engaged are you with the activities that fill your days? Consider these questions:

  1. How much do you do without commitment, where you are indifferent, easy going, just playing along or going through the motions?
  2. How much do you do for others through habit (possibly no commitment)? Through obligation (half-hearted commitment)? With devotion (full commitment)?
  3. Are there times where you are committed against something and use protest, revenge or manipulation to bring change?- instead of for something
  4. Where are you experiencing being fully committed to one or more activities so that with dedication and passion, you do whatever it takes to achieve your aims?

We can learn much about ourselves when we assess the depth of our commitment. As an example, identify something that is important to you. On a scale of 1 (low) – 10 (high), how would you rate your commitment level? If you are not 100% committed, you have energy leaks. They may show up in procrastination, indecision and lack of responsibility — all different forms of self sabotage. Perhaps you doubt the value of what you’re doing or your ability to handle the situation.

If you recognize that you are not fully committed to a venture, take time to explore your deeper thoughts and feelings. If you’re going to invest your time and energy in something, you want to ensure you are doing it in the best way at the best time for the best reasons. And if you find you can’t engage whole-heartedly in a project, it might be best to let it go. It’s all a way of making your life count.

“You need to make a commitment, and once you make it, then life will give you some answers.” — Les Brown

Plug the holes in your personal foundation

by John Robson on July 14, 2014

personal foundation

I recently experienced first hand how the little bad habits, limiting self talk, prolonged procrastination, ignored intuition and semi-conscious justifiers can all add up to crumble the foundation, integrity and authenticity your life is based upon.

It seems so minor – like throwing a handful of sand off the beach a few times each day. And after a few years your beach is empty and you wander why. Or on a more personal note – It is like having the sensation to go to the bathroom and we ignore it and then put up with it to the point we must do something NOW or suffer the consequences.

Here is my experience.

I recently sealed the leaks in our Higher Awareness business. And it feels so empowering as we re-create an unbreakable foundation for future expansion. Here is what we did in the last few weeks:

  • Made our site responsive to smart phones, tablets, laptops and desktops for optimal viewing.
  • Added captchas and a double optin process to our popular pages so we only work with valid email addresses and do not get blacklisted.
  • Deleted old links and updated web pages as Google keeps changing the rules every month.
  • Enhanced our interaction on social media, – Facebook, Twitter, Linked-in, Google +.
  • Had our email lists professionally cleaned of bad email addresses.

And now we are adding multiple, new, high value products for visitors to sample.

And stay tuned over the next few months as we will be offering a new flag ship, intuition development and manifesting program called INTUIT and DO IT – a Life Planning System.

This program is also about building a solid foundation. Most of us are on a path of meaning, purpose, spiritual understanding, clarity, health, joy, peace, service and fulfillment.

And I see too often we seek these higher attributes from a hole-filled foundation. A foundation crumbling from old limiting beliefs, unclear goals, chaos, guilt, resentment, victimhood…

So our program starts by creating a solid platform of integrity, authenticity and powerful skills for continued growth.

66 ways to re-energize and re-focus yourself

by John Robson on July 10, 2014

developing intuition

How often do you feel being down, overwhelmed, lost, angry, fearful, low in energy… and the list goes on. And if you have not felt any of these emotions in the last few weeks, please let us know your secret.

How did your downer time affect your health, self talk, productivity and overall attitude? For some people it is downright disabling.

Sometimes we expect every single day to be clear, productive, inspiring, energetic, loving, creative, guided, etc. And I wish it was true.

But there are natural cycles of balance, giving and receiving, ebb and flow, beginnings and endings, of expressing and rejuvenating.

Daily, that is why we have evenings to relax. Weekly, that is why we have weekends. And even every 20 to 90 minutes we have a need to change physiology and patterns.

So next time you feel down or overwhelmed, know that it may be part of a natural cycle.
So what do you do to rejuvenate, re-motivate, re-focus and re-fuel yourself?

Here is a list of 66 ways to rejuvenate yourself.

100 goal setting triggers

by John Robson on July 1, 2014

goal setting triggers

It has been proven, time and time again, that people who set goals achieve more success while those who don’t, generally achieve less success.

Goal setting helps us get clear about what we want, set priorities and create a plan. Consistently focusing on and working with your goals enables you to attain more results.

More importantly, the process of identifying what you want in life helps you learn more about who you are. And to the degree you know yourself, you will manifest your dreams. When we set and pursue our own goals, we take control of our lives. As we plot targets and move towards them, we bring purpose and focus into our days. Our actions take on more meaning. Decisions are easier to make. Our self-esteem, happiness and fulfillment grow as we clearly see ourselves moving step by step forward in life.

Goal setting supports us to think bigger and not under-order from life’s smorgasbord of opportunities. It offers us a better sense of balance, purpose, healing, true expression, ideal life and lifestyle, motivation, fun, peace of mind, learning, passion, meaning, service…

Just the process of writing goals down, making relative distinctions of importance between goals, creating intentions and reviewing or tacking goals are some of the key actions that make goals work.

Do you have goals for your family, friends, health, spirituality, career, creativity, learning, self development, finances, home, health, sports, etc.?

So you can have a balance of great goals that fit your passion and purpose, we have created for you a list of triggers for creating great goals. Start creating your ‘bucket list’. What goals fit your style and authenticity?

It is never to late to create the life you were meant to lead. Download your goals trigger list and start reinventing your self today.
