When Anxiety Attacks

by Pete Bissonette

When you are in the throes of an anxiety response, grab Session B of Anxiety-Free.

It will help pull you out of the vicious cycle of physical and mental reaction.

Of course, the problem is remembering to use Anxiety-Free, Session B. An anxiety attack can be debilitating and can keep you from thinking straight and taking action. I saw it in a friend two weeks ago, and it was gut-wrenching for me (I can’t imagine what it was like for him).

If you’re prone to strong fear or an anxiety response, use the following sequence NOW to rout it out and reclaim your power.

Day One, listen to Session A.

Day Two, listen to Session B.

Day Three, listen to Session A again.

This series of steps will put you into a high state of resourcefulness regarding the circumstance you need to handle.

Session A puts you in charge. Session B teaches you to turn off anxieties while simultaneously training you to prevent the cycle in the future.

You have always survived situations you fear. The advantage of multiple listenings—which are only 18 minutes each—is that you remember this truth emotionally as well as intellectually. In this way you rewrite invalid fears and reclaim your ability to choose the response you want.

Don’t be shy about returning to this series now and then, especially when you are having anxious moments.

And if in the future anxiety tries ruling your emotions, you will be in better shape to remember to use Session B.

Using Session A will help you gain freedom from fears and project strength. Using Session B will give you the power to take action.

The mind is an amazing resource we all have. When it doesn’t function in the way you’d like, you have choices. Always keep Paraliminals in mind, because they can be a godsend in helping you live a fulfilling life and experiencing your potential.

Just because something isn’t going well, it doesn’t mean you are bad or broken.  Set judgements aside, and resolve to step forward. Despite outward appearances, on the inside you are whole.

Take Command of Your Dreams – and Your Inner Genius

by Pete Bissonette
If you’re like most adults, you spend as much as a third of your life sleeping. What if you could use that time more effectively?

Don’t misunderstand—I don’t mean to encroach upon your valuable sleep time. A good night’s sleep is necessary for optimal health and well-being, and it just plain feels good.

But what if you could use your snoozing hours to find creative solutions to problems at work, develop a skill or talent to perfection, or explore a whole new career?

You can—with lucid dreaming.

In a lucid dream, you are consciously aware you are dreaming and are able to creatively interact with your dream world in ways that can help you increase your abilities in the waking world.

You gain access to more of your inner genius, because lucidly dreaming widens the channels of communication between your conscious mind and nonconscious mind.

Dreaming is how your nonconscious mind attempts to communicate with you. But you must learn its language and become aware of the symbolic ways your dreams communicate.

Start by noticing your regular dreams. Motivation is key. Simply having the intention of remembering your dreams when you go to bed is enough for many people.

Your first thought when you awaken should be “What was I just dreaming?” Lie still and recall the striking elements of the dream. Keep a journal beside your bed, and jot down the images and symbols you remember.

Be aware of what these symbols mean for you, and notice patterns and themes. Then when you’re in the midst of a lucid dream, you’ll understand it better, giving you even more control of where you take your dream experience.

Our Dream Play Paraliminal offers guidance for entering a lucid dream from your regular dreams. Consider trying this technique developed at the Stanford Sleep Research Laboratories by Stephen LaBerge, Ph.D.:

1)  During the early morning when you awaken spontaneously from a dream, go over the dream several times until you have it memorized.

2)  While lying in bed and returning to sleep, say to yourself, “Next time I’m dreaming, I want to remember to recognize I’m dreaming.”

3)  Imagine yourself as being back in the dream just rehearsed; only this time, feel the realization that you are aware of yourself in the dream.

4)  Repeat steps two and three until you feel your intention is clearly fixed or until you fall asleep.

Then explore in your own virtual reality lab!

Lucid dreaming can be fun, because you get to play with your responses, giving you more choices in whatever you want to do… perfect your French speaking skills on the streets of Paris… apprentice to Michelangelo in the Sistine Chapel… play drums with The Rolling Stones… explore other galaxies with Albert Einstein… or whatever strikes your fancy.

To help you take command of your dreams, I recommend you listen to the Dream Play Paraliminal. It includes two sessions, one helps you work with and benefit from your regular dreams, the other helps you develop lucid awareness from within your dreams. Simply push play, close your eyes, relax, and listen. This closed-eye process activates your “whole mind” with a precise blend of music and words to help you get the most out of every minute.

Rekindling Romance

by Pete Bissonette

As time goes on, how can you bring romance back into your relationship?

Bookstores are filled with advice, but honestly, the only advice you need is right here: Listen to the Creating Sparks Paraliminal.

Listen anytime, but especially within a couple of hours of being with your partner. Shifts begin in your nonconscious mind and bubble consciously. Your energetic patterns change, and this change in you can affect the patterns within your partner. You are connected on the energetic level. Sparks can begin to fly.

Even better would be your partner also using Creating Sparks. Consider lying in bed together listening at the same time. Either use two devices or plug both sets of headphones into one device with a splitter (they are inexpensive on Amazon).

Listening multiple times in a month will help you set yourself up for years of romance. Revisit Creating Sparks whenever you could use a boost.

Romance is a beautiful part of a relationship. You don’t have to let it fall by the wayside as time goes on. It can deepen feelings of trust, mystery, and grace in your relationship.

Other Paraliminals that can support romance are Positive Relationships, Instantaneous Personal Magnetism, and Prosperity.

Are You Worthy of Success?

by Pete Bissonette


But it is so easy to believe you are not. Negative beliefs, self-talk, patterns, family members, co-workers…it can be tough.

That’s what I love about the Paraliminals. They support your wholeness, magnificence, vast capabilities, and great promise on a deep, deep nonconscious level.

If you have any doubts whatsoever that you deserve it all, listen to the You Deserve It! Paraliminal today.

Paul Scheele and Lisa Nichols came together to create this godsend of a tool. It is one of my favorites, because as you listen to Lisa’s voice, you feel she believes in your greatness through every particle of her existence. You can’t help but believe in yourself, in the divine presence within, and in your worthiness to experience the best life has to offer.

Paul’s brilliance in working with your nonconscious mind brings the experience to the highest levels of completeness.

Listen to it today, listen daily for as long as you need, and come back to it whenever you feel you need a boost. You deserve it!

Other supportive Paraliminals include Belief, Automatic Pilot, New History Generator, and Self-Esteem Supercharger.

Grim Determination??

by Pete Bissonette

When a kid shoots hoops past sunset to get better, that is not grim determination.

When someone gets up two hours early to write a book, that is not grim determination.

When I spent days working with raw cherry wood to meticulously build a tongue and groove wall in my home, that was not grim determination.

When you listen to a Paraliminal every morning, that is not grim determination.

When you practice qigong every day for your health, that is not grim determination.

Not at all! We do it because it is important to us. We love it. It is of high value to us.

Someone might look at us and call it grim determination. We call it self-discipline. And for us it flows naturally from the strength of clear purpose and living in alignment with our values.

If you want that, use the Self-Discipline Paraliminal.

It will help you eliminate energy wasters and develop a disciplined habit of taking consistent action on the things you need to do.

It will help you on a very deep level channel your intentions, values, actions, and habits to create the life you choose to live.

Someone will look at you and think, “Now that’s self-discipline.” But you will know you’ve unlocked energy so that your life flows.

Begin by using it daily for a week and you might just find yourself PhotoReading a book every day, getting really good at playing the guitar, painting your home, making more money than you dreamed, and achieving your heart’s desire.
