Living in the Zone – Part 2

Secondly imagine doing that in a peak performance way.  Imagining doing that in the zone where the relationship is just fabulous, better than it’s ever been, the best you can imagine it.  Where your career is invigorating, you’re passionate about it.  You are successful.  It just goes beyond what you had hoped for.  Your health starts improving and it keeps improving and things are getting better and better.  You are feeling better and better and better.  Imagine what that would be.  Try to imagine that in the zone, whatever the things is you want to do.

Next, see what do you not believe about that.  When you envision doing that thing in the zone, what little voices are saying “That can’t happen.”  “You’re not good enough for that.”  Or, “That may happen for everybody else, but not for you.”

Do you feel anger?  Do you feel anxiety?  Do you feel fear?  Do you feel sadness?  Do you feel frustrated?  Do you feel unforgiveness?  When you imagine doing that thing in the zone, what do you feel in a negative way that says you may not be able to do that in the zone?  Write all those things down.

Before you can ever do that thing in the zone you have to heal all of those things.  Now, I would highly recommend doing that through energy medicine like The Healing Codes because you can do it in a matter of minutes or hours.  Any other way I know of you may be at it for years or decades and you still might not get there.  You have to heal those negative things that come up when you imagine doing that in the zone.

Once you have healed those and now you think about that thing and don’t feel any of the negative, you don’t feel “I can’t do it”.  You don’t feel anger.  You don’t feel frustrated.  You don’t feel, “I’m not good enough.”  You think, “Hey, I think maybe that can happen” about whatever it is.

Then continue to focus on that image of the thing you want to do in the zone and keep inserting positive things. “You can do it.”  “I can make it.”  “If this is God’s will he will help me with this.”  Until you can see that vision of doing that thing and you can feel it and it’s positive and you believe it.  Once you get to that place, that is going to start acting like a homing beacon.  It’s going to start acting like the rudder on a ship to take you toward that thing that this time you’ll be able to do it from that place of being in the zone.

I would highly advise again for you to use energy medicine like The Healing Codes to infuse that vision.  You can do it in a matter of minutes.  If you don’t want to do that, just focus on that vision from a positive, loving, truthful place.  Any time you start to feel a negative about it, you have to flush it.  Not if it’s the truth.  If it’s the truth you’ve got to resolve it.  But if it’s not the truth, and it’s usually not, you’ve got to flush it.  That takes mental gymnastics and sweat.  That’s why I advise doing it through energy medicine where you don’t have to go through all that.

Once you get the negative gone about that thing you want to do in the zone, and the positive infused, it’s going to start to happen.

Now, a couple of disclaimers.  1.  Before you do this, pray about it.  Make sure this is what God wants for you.  2.  Make sure it’s in truth and love.  That’s going to help you tremendously in figuring out the thing you want to go after as far as living in the zone.  3.  You’ve got to do it.

This is a little bit of work going through all this, but it can pay off in dividends for the rest of your life and the rest of your family’s life, in your health, in actual dollars.  People who do this start making more money, etc, etc.

That’s how you live in the zone.

Living In The Zone – Part 1

All of us want to live in the zone.  If you watch any sports at all you hear that phrase all the time.  I’m sure you heard,  “Boy, Michael Jordan was really in the zone tonight!”  Then they interview Michael and he might say the same things.  “Michael, 45 points, game winning shot, tell me about it.”  I saw an interview like this with him.  He smiled this little smile and said, “I was just in the zone.  When you get in the zone things like that happen.”

Well, you can be in the zone, not just in basketball or sports, but in any area of your life.  It is the ultimate peak performance. You can be in the zone parenting.  You can be in the zone for your work and career.  You can be in the zone in your most important relationship.  You can be in the zone as far as your health goes.  That’s a lot of what we’re about in The Healing Codes.  So how do you get in the zone?

Well, the first thing is you have to do whatever you’re doing from the heart.  Arizona State University did a number of studies where they focused primarily on sports.  They focused on archery and shooting bows and arrows.  They focused on golf.  They focused on several sports.  What they found is that people who were doing that sport from the heart, which involves the right brain and if you have questions about that, come to our Thursday call, Living from the Heart, where we talk about that stuff a lot, but people who were coming from the heart shooting bow and arrow or playing golf or doing other kinds of sports, did it significantly better than people who were doing it from their head.

What they also found is that athletes and people who were doing those sports, if they would activate their heart while they were thinking about doing that sport, they weren’t even doing it, they were sitting on the couch at home, if they would activate their heart while thinking about doing it they would go out and do it better than they had done it before and the thinking about it from a heart place was just as effective and many times more so than practicing.  That blows you mind, but it’s true.

There was a doctor on The Secret with Dr. Ben who had coached Olympic athletes and talked about that same thing, how they would test Olympic athletes who were thinking about their event from the heart and they saw that all the same muscles fired in the same order as if they were actually running or swimming or whatever their event was.  And, when they did that, the next time they would go out, they would have gotten better.

So the key to peak performance, not only from a ancient manuscript perspective, but also from a scientific and medical and physiological perspective is you’ve got to do whatever you’re doing from the heart.

Let me give you some real quick guidelines on this.  Get a piece of paper out whenever you have a chance to do this.  Think about the thing that you would like to do “in the zone”, have a peak performance in, rather than the way you’ve been doing it.  Point number one is whatever that is you have to do it in truth and love.  So if you’re doing it completely for selfish reasons, don’t do it.  Find something else to do in the zone.  Whatever you’re going to do it has to be in truth and love.  Spend just a couple of minutes saying, “Am I doing this in truth and love or is it for some bad motivation or reason or something like that?”  If you can do that from a place of truth and love, you go on to the next thing.
