Create Your Ideal Money World

by Paul Scheele

Money is a powerful and useful tool that can make life easier and more interesting and fulfilling. But how you perceive money can hinder your ability to earn and receive it.

The beliefs or “scripts” you hold about money can significantly affect your financial, mental, and emotional well-being, according to research from Kansas State University.

Subjects responded to a list of 72 common money scripts. The study revealed four distinct belief categories that give insight into a person’s “desire to avoid money issues (avoidance), accumulate money (worship), differentiate one’s self from other socioeconomic classes (status), or keep one’s money issues private (vigilance),” the researchers wrote in The Journal of Financial Therapy.

The research was done to develop an assessment tool to help clinical therapists and psychologists identify a client’s problematic attitudes that can be destructive or interfere with accomplishing their financial goals.

Here are some money beliefs from the Klontz-Money Script Inventory. Do any resonate with you?

How to Remember Dreams

by Pete Bissonette

The simple act of listening to a Paraliminal—any Paraliminal—before bed will help you dream and remember your dreams.

The voices in both ears help to bridge the two sides of the brain. This also strengthens your connection to your dreaming mind and heightens your resolve for increased lucidity during your dream state.

We recommend listening to one session of Paul Scheele’s Dream Play Paraliminal each night for several weeks before falling asleep.

Before listening, drink a glass of water and instruct your mind with clear directives that you will remember your dreams upon awakening.

Remind yourself that when you wake during sleep, your first thought should be “What was I just dreaming?”

O-v-e-r-w-h-e-l-m

The mental anguish of overwhelm can be debilitating. It can keep you spinning your wheels, not getting anything done.

There is so much to do, you don’t know what to do, you don’t have the resources whether money or time, you feel buried…

Paul Scheele created the Overcoming Overwhelm Paraliminal because a friend was smothering in life. At every corner he was distracted or feeling stuck. It’s not supposed to be that way. We’re supposed to flow through life, dealing with our challenges, and ultimately going to bed every night feeling pretty darned good.

But he would go to bed hoping to go unconscious as a respite from life.

That might be an extreme for you, but it is an everyday occurrence for so many people. And there is an easy-to-use way to get to the other side of it.

Getting Your Life to Work

by Pete Bissonette

When your life is not working… if things often go wrong… if you do not achieve success when you think you should… or, if life is just difficult, access your inner coach.

The No Matter What! Paraliminal is a remarkably effective tool for tapping this inner GPS of yours so you can more easily move forward.

What is an inner coach? It’s what you hear when you still your mind. It speaks from your soul as your higher self. It is your guide. It inspires the best in you. It helps you be a better person.

The more you engage this trusted mentor, the stronger and clearer it becomes. It cheers you on, picking you up when you stumble, and encouraging you to move forward.

Hardwire Your Inner Drive for Success

by Paul Scheele

“Mastering others is strength. Mastering yourself is true power.”

– Lao Tzu

People attribute success in life to many things, but most achievements really boil down to a key attribute: self-discipline.

Whether one has it in spades or finds it difficult to muster, self-discipline can determine life outcomes as diverse as educational attainment, state of health, and criminal behavior.

It can even be measured in early childhood. A New Zealand study that tracked 1,000 people from birth to age 32 found childhood self-control predicted physical health, personal finances, and criminal behavior.
