  • Sicks & Stones – How Words Frame Your World

    James H. Carpenter Barnes, Ph.D., Founder, All I Imagine, Inc

    Sticks and Stones – Power of Words to Frame Your World MORE >

    In a single moment of time we can speak words which can have an impact for the next 10 years, positively and negatively. This isn’t a new discovery. For years I spoke without regard for the far-reaching consequences attached to what I said. Whether out of foolish jesting, or raging anger. Negative destructive words cut two ways… going into the life of the hearer and when they come back to the life of the speaker. This workshop answers these questions:

    Where does the spoken word gather its power?

    How can I use the language of the physical realm to my advantage in life?

    We explain that the language of the mind is thought, while the language of the body is an experience. How both work together to advance or hinder success in ourselves and others.

  • The Focus Advantage

    James H. Carpenter Barnes, Ph.D., Founder, All I Imagine, Inc

    This topic teaches how to release the ability manifest a desired goal using intentional focus. Learning to join emotional energy with mental imaging is the path to limitless creativity. We bring into our lives the things we sincerely desire from the heart. When are able to see our desires in our mind's eye, focus on them without conflict, we are on our way to a more productive life. Being distracted is often an unrecognized habit, distraction yields unfocused energy. MORE >

    Some teach the idea that you must write it down and say it aloud; this is true, in part. There is a vast difference between saying a thing and speaking it. If what we utter is not spoken from the heart with intent desire, and if what we write down is not written from that same passion-filled heart; aren't we are just talking and taking notes. In such a case, we must rely on our external determination. Leaving an immense reservoir of creative ability untapped.

    The objective of this topic is to demonstrate the importance of overcoming contradictory/counter productive thoughts which often show up when we are in the midst of working toward a goal. Whether the opposing thought comes from another person or from within our own mind. We are often our own greatest hindrance to success and progress.

    There is a simple technique which will begin to train the mind to focus, thus allowing the heart to speak the language of creativity. If the words are not spoken from a passionate heart, they are foreign to the creative forces we all carry within us. What we give our attention to we also give our energy.
