“Going back 15 years, I originally wrote ‘Transforming the Mind’ as a personal compilation of what I considered to be the most valuable information I had acquired from my studies. This was made freely available and formed the basis of the Trans4mind site. Ever since I have been adding further resources.
“I believe you can have a much better life if you are true to your core self - therefore guided by love and intuitive inner knowing. And further, you can learn to develop your creative potential and advance holistically: in body, mind and spirit.”~ Peter Shepherd - Email
Fear and Anxiety ~ by Charlie Badenhop
Obviously fear and anxiety are important topics in the study of Aikido, but these conditions now also touch every level of society in most every country in the world. High levels of nearly constant fear and anxiety are leading to greater disease and increased societal problems as well.
Several exceptional articles submitted to Trans4mind are featured in our free audio Podcast, issued every few weeks, downloadable to your computer. A "podcast" is an audio download that you can subscribe to at iTunes Store, so you automatically get the latest issue. Listen to the current issue now:
Firstly in this issue, Jafree Ozwald says success is not about luck or lucky genes; it's about learning appropriate skills, then using them to create the life you truly want. Next, Philip Humbert has discovered a technique that enables a person to access a limitless resource of creative juice that will fuel them forever. Finally, Harold W. Becker asks, how many times do you listen within to your own thoughts and feelings about life rather than reacting or responding to outer suggestions and conditions?

Why Do Personal Development?
All too often our personal development has already ended by the time we reach adulthood. We've 'grown up' and know enough to hold down a job. If we are fortunate we find our niche and as much as possible solve the problems of survival, then we stick with those solutions. But our upbringing hasn't taught us most of what we need to know in order to make the most of our potential, to have truly fulfilling careers and relationships.
We've learned to play a role but our emotions may scare and mystify us. We may not have learned to express our needs nor to listen generously to others. We may have lost touch with the intuitive and creative faculties that we knew as children and now try to work things out analytically, hampered by the false information indoctrinated into us.
We cling to a set of beliefs and our minds become less and less open. We may not even like ourselves much, far short of recognizing the power and loving nature of our inner, spiritual selves. Our personal development has only begun; surely it should not stop there?
A natural trait of humans is to be constantly developing, growing and moving toward a balanced and mature way of being. Our present personality is determined by both who and what we have been and by the person we strive to become. The goal of personal development is to learn and apply that which enables us to attain emotional wellbeing, understanding and effectiveness, and mindful awareness, and to share this knowledge with others.
Personal development is the conscious evolution of human nature, and yet throughout history it has been sorely lacking! Although it is in our nature to learn and grow, we are held back by our culture, which is predominantly focused on survival needs, each of us in competition with others, and our spiritual inner nature is repressed. The animal rules. We make no room for unconditional love.
Even though the culture may have evolved with technological advancement and administrative complexity, human nature has not moved forward as it might. Our consciousness and mindfulness remain as always. We are now paying the price for Mankind's selfishness and inconsideration. Going forward, the quality of our lives on this planet - even our survival - now depends on each of us taking responsibility for our personal growth.
The human being needs to awaken to the soul that inhabits each body and is our true self and source of inner knowing. Awaken through a process of self-discovery, leading to one's own, self-directed spirituality. We need to become mindfully conscious instead of ruled by the dictates of instincts, past habits and fixed beliefs. We need to throw away dogma, open our minds and reconsider. Instead of fear about our survival and competitive angst, we will then be motivated by compassionate understanding and creative love.
For those that do move forward, the next epoch - that is upon us now in 2013 - will be a celebration of human cooperation and shared love. It's our best hope for the future - and it's in our hands.
The Founder of Life Mastery Training Wallace Huey (Email)
Life Mastery Training is a broad and in-depth approach to master all the challenges of life that you encounter, covering the areas of healing yourself, being successful, enhancing relationships and answering the big questions of your existence. There are 35 workshops addressing the specific challenges. The curriculum is practical - it assists participants find unshakable inner peace through mastering their life challenges.
The training is delivered in real-world workshops, catering for the personal development needs of individuals. The training is also designed to enhance and strengthen local community. It will be delivered by Life Coaches internationally in their local community or health centre through our Life Mastery licence, as a tool to rapidly grow their own coaching practice.
The Training has undergone two years development and testing in 2010 - 2012. It was launched professionally as real-world workshops in Ballyroan Community Centre in Dublin in September 2012 and will be gradually rolled out within Ireland and then internationally as more Life Coaches come on board to deliver it and Community Centres come forward to host it. Details of Life Mastery workshops currently available in Dublin: Life Mastery Ireland.
The training will further be made available to everyone online when we introduce the Life Mastery Academy at the beginning of 2014.
By these means Trans4mind intends, along with its existing online ebooks, courses, articles, videos and other resources on personal development, to fulfil its mission: to awaken the consciousness of humanity by harnessing the full potential of the Internet and developing the power of community worldwide.
The Trans4mind International Network
We intend Trans4mind to remain freely accessible and to be maintained in perpetuity as a personal development service, dedicated to the uplifting of humanity WORLD-WIDE. This is achieved through providing each visitor with an abundant choice, both of free and paid resources, to create their path of personal and spiritual growth - and to do this in a wide range of languages.
We do this because it is our life's purpose: to assist the personal development of men, women and young people throughout the world.
Trans4mind Service Providers currently run sites in a range of languages: these are far from carbon copies, each site reflects the personality and interests of its creator, as well as the values of Trans4mind...
Nicole Shepherd runs Trans4mind.fr; Eugenio Rincón who lives in Mexico launched the Spanish version of Trans4mind in Spring 2009, Trans4mind.es; Martina Geromin established the German version of Trans4mind, Trans4mind.de and Orsolya Riszt created Trans4mind.hu in Hungarian.
The latest additions to our team are Kelly Chaya who is creating Trans4mind.ae in Arabic; Tim Lam who is creating Trans4mind.hk in Chinese; Bas & Agnes van Gaalen who are creating Trans4mind.nl in Dutch; Ryszard Chwałek and Beata Michalska who are creating Trans4mind.pl in Polish; and Dhara Rishi assisted by Praveen Muley who are creating Trans4mind.in in Hindi.
If you introduce a Trans4mind site in your language, it won't cost you anything; what we do require is a burning desire to be of loving service, to help raise the consciousness of your society and bring the benefits of personal development to the world at large. We invite your participation if you would like to create a new site in the Trans4mind Network or assist the current providers.
