Infinite Possibilites Training

Mike Dooly with Andy

Could there ever be a better course to take than one called “Infinite Possibilities?”

Hard to imagine, but then that wouldn’t represent infinite possibilities would it?

Last month I got to spend four amazing days in Boston with a couple hundred of my new best friends, as well as Mike Dooley and his younger brother Andy Dooley. I heard of Mike back when I originally read, “The Secret“, in December, 2006. That book made me look at myself and my life in a new way. As I dove deeper into the power of my own thoughts and how I’d been creating my life, I decided to make a goal of working with each of the teachers featured in “The Secret“, so last month was another fine example of thoughts becoming things in my own life. I’ve gotten quite good at this whole “creating my reality” notion in the last few years. Mike is also the man behind the Notes from The Universe, one of the world’s most popular daily emails – and my personal favorite to read each day (well Monday through Friday at least. See, The Universe likes to take weekends off!) Since you can never get too much quality time with The Universe, it was an extraordinary four days.

The weekend wasn’t a traditional self-development event, it was a train-the-trainer program; meaning we were taught how to go forward into the world and teach classes based on Mike’s book, “Infinite Possibilities: The Art of Living Your Dreams.” We are out to reach people who have yet to realize how powerful they are, how magnificent life is, and that they aren’t here merely to survive, but to thrive! As someone who battled depression and suicidal thoughts while I was growing up, and beyond, I’m thrilled that such a class exists – let alone than I’m a part of it.

The weekend was full of traditional lecture and training periods, but also included music, dance, meditation, comedy, human scavenger hunts and a very fun “Come As You Will Be” party where you came as yourself in five years. That resulted in a night of dreams come true for everyone.

I am now an Infinite Possibilities Certified Trainer and I’ll be bringing this material to audiences far and wide both in-person and online very soon. I can still remember so vividly how my mind leapt open when I first read, “The Secret”, and I love seeing those same “ahas” in other people. This program takes the core teachings of “The Secret” deeper and makes it much more applicable to anyone’s life, though any familiarity with the material in “The Secret” is certainly not needed. I’m looking forward to see where I’m called to teach this in the coming year; the notion of holding classes in both prisons and schools has me quite excited. Those are just two of the audiences so needing to be reminded of how powerful they are.

Talking About Suicide

I recently discovered a powerful website, TalkingAboutSuicide.com, working to remove the stigma of suicide attempts by allowing people to openly share their stories. The site was created by Cara Anna, a journalist and suicide attempt survivor, and has dozens of frank, open discussions about depression, suicidal thinking, suicide attempts and what comes after.

I discovered energy work after decades of battling with myself; my feelings of depression, hopelessness and suicidal thinking. It was only after multiple suicide attempts that I began to think maybe there is a better way, maybe I am supposed to be alive. Since I first started sharing my story publicly in 2010, my goal has been to be as open, transparent and authentic as I can be, in an effort to help others in that much emotional pain that they are thinking about ending their lives to realize there is always another way and that life indeed does get better.

My discussion with Cara went well over an hour and you can read the full interview here.

The Power of Gratitude

I’m sure you have heard of gratitude, being thankful for what you have, but are you aware of how powerful a thought and emotion of gratitude can be?

My first online course is now live! “The Power of Gratitude: Learn how to improve the quality of your life with an attitude of gratitude“, is based on my in-person gratitude workshop, but it ended up being longer than my live event (over four hours of content!) and it is cheaper than attending the live event too. Plus, you decide when to take it, what speed to go through it, and you’ll always have access to it. I’m launching it at the amazing price of only $37!

The Power of Gratitude course

“This course is incredible. It really made me stop and think about so many things I take for granted each day. I enjoyed doing the exercises that were included in the course. Your energy and enthusiasm are contagious!” ~Sue

In this course we will explore gratitude from a spiritual, energetic, and scientific perspective.

Whether you’ve been keeping a gratitude journal for years, once had a gratitude practice but have stopped, or even if you think the notion of gratitude having any effect on your life is utter nonsense I invite you to join me. You will take part in a number of journaling exercises and learn simple rituals you can use on a daily basis to bring about an attitude of gratitude in your life. I’ll share my story later, but let me say up front that everything I’ll teach you is something I used to think was a ridiculous waste of time – that is until I tried it.

I will share with you scientific studies from the field of Positive Psychology proving the amazing power of gratitude on your health, happiness, relationships and well being. You don’t have to believe I word I say, just be intrigued enough to put some of the practices I’ll share with you to work and then decide for yourself. Sign up now!

Andy Grant has done a great job of convincing me that if I do one thing in the day, it should be to find something to be grateful for. I’ve been practicing some of his techniques, and am amazed at how calmer I am, how I can come down from being agitated more easily, how much easier I fall asleep. Thank you, Andy!” ~Maria

“Andy Grant has done a really great job here of pulling together valid and relevant teachings, videos, messages, reference lists and images. The course is thorough and the material is life-changing if Andy’s suggestions are followed. I have done many of the things he recommends, with indisputable results. On top of all that, he’s a warm, natural and engaging teacher whose own story is quite powerful. Thanks, Andy!” ~Kim

Do you ever feel scattered, disconnected or scared to take the next step in your life?
Imagine being centered, focused and excited about your journey.

Do you ever feel disempowered, not heard or maybe even invisible to the world?
Imagine reclaiming your personal power, decreasing struggle and creating your life instead of reacting to it.
See yourself living a life free of doubts, fears and limitations.

As Oprah said in her farewell show:
“You are responsible for the energy that you create for yourself, and you’re responsible for the energy that you bring to others….
All life is energy and we are transmitting it at every moment. We are all beaming little signals like radio frequencies, and the world is responding in kind.”

Energy work is much better experienced than explained and this evening will be all about your experiences.  You will experience your own energy.  You will learn tools that you can use on a daily basis to better your life; such as how to get yourself present in any moment, to feel more grounded, to tap into the joy of life.  You will learn how to reclaim your own power and better create boundaries so you will no longer feel like some people suck the life out of you.  There will also be laser coaching for a brave volunteer or two, discussion about other modalities such as EFT and Ho’oponopono and plenty of Q&A.

Come out and play!

Meeting Anita Moorjani

Andy and AnitaEarlier this month I had the chance to meet Anita Moorjani, author of Dying To Be Me, a powerful and inspiring memoir chronicling her Near Death Experience and unexplainable healing from terminal cancer. I first heard of Anita in early 2012 while reading Wayne Dyer’s excellent book, Wishes Fulfilled. He told a bit of her story and shared her primary message of unconditional self love.

I bought her book a month or so later, but didn’t read it. I wanted to. I had time to. But I was scared. Everything I read or heard about Anita and her story resonated so strongly with me, so many of her words matched exactly what I’ve said in my own speeches that I was scared to read it. I was concerned that I’d be “ripping her off.” So I ignored the book for more than a year.

This July I took Anita’s online class with Hay House. I loved it. I felt like I could have been teaching so much of it. Still I didn’t want to read the book. Finally, two days before I was going to see her speak in Hartford CT on Sept 14, 2013, I read her book. I devoured it, inhaled it, and I immediately got that it was the Truth. That is why it resonated so strongly with me, and why so many of her words seemed to be my own. We are both sharing the Truth. I laughed at myself as I understood that I couldn’t “rip off” the Truth.

I got to spend a few minutes with Anita after her presentation. Her presence and energy are AMAZING; pure love. I shared with her how I learned the importance of self-love after multiple suicide attempts, and we had a good laugh over my resistance to reading her book. She gave me a kiss and said to keep doing what I’m doing. Deal.

Here is a metaphor she uses in her book and presentations that I really like. I can’t recommend her book enough! And you don’t have to face your own death to learn these lessons. Enjoy.

Flashlight

Only a Flashlight

How do you see reality?

By Anita Moorjani

Although I try to share my near-death experience, there are no words that can come close to describing its depth and the amount of knowledge that came flooding through. So the best way to express it is through the use of metaphors and analogies. Hopefully, they capture a part of the essence of what I’m trying to convey at least in some small way.

Imagine, if you will, a huge, dark warehouse. You live there with only one flashlight to see by. Everything you know about what’s contained within this enormous space is what you’ve seen by the beam of one small flashlight. Whenever you want to look for something, you may or may not find it, but that doesn’t mean the thing doesn’t exist. It’s there, but you just haven’t shone your light on it. And even when you do, the object you see may be difficult to make out. You may get a fairly clear idea of it, but often you’re left wondering. You can only see what your light is focused on, and only identify that which you already know.

That is what physical life is like. We’re only aware of what we focus our senses on at any given time, and we can only understand what is already familiar.

Next, imagine that one day, someone flicks on a switch. There for the first time, in a sudden burst of brilliance and sound and color, you can see the entire warehouse, and it’s nothing like anything you’d ever imagined. Lights are blinking, flashing, glowing, and shooting sparks of red, yellow, blue, and green. You see colors you don’t recognize, ones you’ve never seen before. Music floods the room with fantastic, kaleidoscopic, surround-sound melodies you’ve never heard before.

Neon signs pulse and boogie in rainbow strobes of cherry, lemon, vermillion, grape, lavender, and gold. Electric toys run on tracks up, down, and around shelves stacked with indescribable colored boxes, packages, papers, pencils, paints, inks, cans of food, packages of multihued candies, bottles of effervescent sodas, chocolates of every possible variety, champagne, and wines from every corner of the world. Skyrockets suddenly explode in starbursts, setting off sparkling flowers, cascades of cold fire, whistling embers, and animations of light.

The vastness, complexity, depth, and breadth of everything going on around you is almost overwhelming. You can’t see all the way to the end of the space, and you know there’s more to it than what you can take in from this torrent that’s tantalizing your senses and emotions. But you do get a strong feeling that you’re actually part of something alive, infinite, and altogether fantastic, that you are part of a large and unfolding tapestry that goes beyond sight and sound.

You understand that what you used to think was your reality was, in fact, hardly a speck within the vast wonder that surrounds you. You can see how all the various parts are interrelated, how they all play off each other, how everything fits. You notice just how many different things there are in the warehouse that you’d never seen, never even dreamed of existing in such splendor and glory of color, sound, and texture—but here they are, along with everything you already knew. And even the objects you were aware of have an entirely new context so that they, too, seem completely new and strangely super-real.

Even when the switch goes back off, nothing can take away your understanding and clarity, the wonder and beauty, or the fabulous aliveness of the experience. Nothing can ever cancel your knowledge of all that exists in the warehouse. You’re now far more aware of what’s there, how to access it, and what’s possible than you ever were with your little flashlight. And you’re left with a sense of awe over everything you experienced in those blindingly lucid moments. Life has taken on a different meaning, and your new experiences moving forward are created from this awareness.

About Anita

Anita MoorjaniAfter her cancer diagnosis in 2002, Anita Moorjani experienced what most of us never have – she “crossed over” and came back to share what she learned. Her remarkable near death experience (NDE) and subsequent healing is one of the most amazing ever recorded. Anita’s NDE tremendously changed her perspective on life, and inspired her critically-acclaimed New York Times best-selling book, Dying To Be Me.

Her work is now ingrained with the depths and insights she gained while in the other realm and has propelled her to the forefront of the world of personal transformation and NDE. She is the embodiment of the truth that we all have the inner power and wisdom to overcome even life’s most adverse situations, as she’s the living proof of this possibility.
