"An individual's self-concept is the core of his or her personality. It affects every aspect of human behavior: the ability to learn, the capacity to grow and change... A strong, positive self-image is the best possible preparation for success in life."
- Dr. Joyce Brothers, Author and Psychiatrist
"What we truly and earnestly aspire to be, that in some sense we are. The mere aspiration, by changing the frame of the mind, for the moment realizes itself."

"Love--THE FEELING --
is the fruit of love, the verb. Reactive people make it a feeling. Hollywood has generally scripted us to believe that we are not responsible, that we are a product of our feelings. But the Hollywood script does not describe the reality. If our feelings control our actions, it is because we have abdicated our responsibility and empowered them to do so."
Steven Covey, "The Seven habits of highly effective people"

It is a scientific fact and also mentioned in the bible (James) that the speech center of the brain rules over all the nerves in the body. What we say out loud can and does cause our core level of being to begin to manifest that of which we speak. \saying "I am feeling old and weak and can not do anything" is a sure way to get older and weaker. "I am retired" is a great way to possibly accelerate one's weakening and subsequent demise. I will NEVER retire.
So let us expand the capability of creating that which we want through the spoken word.
Positive statements can become the ultimate biofeedback. A positive attitude enters the body through natural pranic energy combined with selected affirmations (positive ideas about oneself). A guided breathing exercise combined with selected self image supporting statements supported by an exquisite collection of Tibetan "singing" bowls and bells. You think it, say it and breathe it into you. Your inner awareness of these self esteem ideas will increase in a direct ratio to the number of times you impress these ideas into your own being.
