  • Sticks & Stones – How Our Words Frame Our World

    James H. Carpenter Barnes, Ph.D., Life-Imagined, LLC - Author - Personal Development Speaker & Coach - Radio Talk Show Host

    Sticks and Stones – Using the 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?
    Why is it difficult to put emotions such as love and hate into descriptive terms.

    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. This is explained in detail in my Best Selling book, Looking for God? Look No Further-Look Within.

  • The Journey to Manifestation.

    James H. Carpenter Barnes, Ph.D., Life-Imagined, LLC - Author - Personal Development Speaker & Coach - Radio Talk Show Host

    On the journey to manifesting a goal, a dream, a vision whether small or great there will be three steps one will encounter. Depending on previous experience or preparation, we may encounter one or all three. It is important to remember that when these things happen do not become discouraged, instead recognize them as signs posted along the way that you are on the right path. MORE >

    1. The loss of something. Often when we are in the sequence of the 3 phases of pre-manifestation... (Desire, Declaration and Expectation), we will often experience the loss of something often related to the object of our desire. This is to make room for the new energy to pour into your lives. Here we must resist moving into negative states (resentment, bitterness, anger, jealousy of others, or frustration). Also remember things that matter to us be they people places, or things all are made up of energy, and therefore are never really lost. Energy never dies... it transmutes into new manifestations which we may or may not recognize.

    2. Unusual request, invitations or opportunities are presented to us. The creator uses other people places and things to bring us the things we desire. There is a spiritual principle which states that when we give, it (what we have given) shall be given unto us pressed down, shaken together, running over shall men (from the kingdom of mankind) give into your storehouse of abundance.

    3. Difficult Challenges, when the desire of our heart is manifesting there will be a period of adjustment or adaptation. This is a period where we must train and enlarge our minds, preparing ourselves to receive the expected increase. For example, if we are desiring declaring and expecting a promotion on our jobs, an increase in our incomes, a new automobile, there are changes or preparations we must execute. For example, an increase in knowledge, or a sharpening of skills is often required. With the acquisition of an increase there is also an increase in responsibility. To whom much is given much is required.
