“A person is what he or she thinks about all day long.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
The reality is the most significant “bad habit” we have is our thinking. We too often have poor reflexive thoughts and actions to stressful events. When we are not mindful, negative thoughts and feelings can be triggered. And, as the Buddha says, “We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts.” So, if you wish to create a fulfilling life, it would be wise to cultivate better thoughts. Not only do we need better thoughts and emotions to manifest positive experiences, we know general happiness and a greater sense of well-being leads to better productivity. And how can you stick to a long-term action plan if you are dreading it? Magic Mindfulness empowers you to happily navigate your way to and through a better life experience.
Hi, welcome to the site. My name is Rob.
I believe there is a magic to life and I value science. I trust a theologian who acknowledges the beauty of science, and I respect a scientist who appreciates the might and mystery of faith. Here you learn to use the power of both science and faith. More specifically, I combine mindfulness, the law of attraction, and evidence-based strategies to empower your journey.
Mindfulness helps clear the mind, centers your energy and quiets the mental chatter. Thousands of studies confirm the benefits of mindfulness. Mindfulness is something you naturally possess, however, it’s more readily available to you when you practice on a daily basis. The practice of mindfulness allows you to take more power and be more strategic in terms of your goals and puts you in a more receptive state of being which clears the path for your intuition. Because of the Law of Attraction, the vibration of your intention is sent out to the universe and draws back to you all the right luck, “coincidences,” nudges, inspirations, chance meetings, events, clues, and even full-blown messages that co-create the desired outcome. A lot of the fun comes from the Law of Attraction. Evidence-based strategies simply mean you involve some techniques and strategies that have formal research behind them. For example, there is a character trait associated with success that you can learn easily. Growing experimental research reveals that becoming significantly happier is achievable through simple intentional positive activities. This is what I mean by evidence-based.
Once mindfulness clears the path, and the Law of Attraction sets the energy, evidence based strategies offer some framework and support for your inspired actions.
“MRI scans show that after an eight-week course on mindfulness practice, the brain’s “fight or flight” center, the amygdala, appears to shrink. This primal region of the brain, associated with fear and emotion, is involved in the initiation of the body’s response to stress.” (Scientific American, June 2014).
Mindfulness + Law of Attraction + Evidence-Based Strategies = Magic Like Synergy
Mindfulness: There are over 3,000 studies that show how mindfulness can improve your life.
Law of Attraction: From UFC champion, Connor McGregor, billionaire Andrew Carnegie to Oprah Winfrey, countless business people, athletes, and famous celebrities believe in intention setting or the law of attraction.
Evidence-based: When it comes to strategy, it is wise to include methods that have some research behind them. I use processes that work well together. For example, it is wise to cultivate happiness because multiple studies show it is highly correlated with greater production (evidence-based). It also is necessary for easier manifestations (i.e. law of attraction). Mindfulness is one proven means to increase a sense of well-being that adds to your level of happiness. Of course, it is not all about happiness. There is a landmark study that shows which trait is most likely to result in long-term success – and it can be learned.
MINDFULNESS IS THE STRAW THAT STIRS THE DRINK
The practice of mindfulness drains the power of negative thoughts. You don’t deny them. You create distance. You are less affected by what were once triggering thoughts. Mindfulness also sets you at ease and connects you to nature and the universe. This makes everything easier. OVER 3,000 STUDIES CAN’T BE WRONG Mindfulness makes your life easier! It reduces stress, improves your energy and focus, ends bad habits and so much more!”
“I’m addicted to the high function. To me it’s a work thing — if you meditate, you can get so much work done. I always say to people you know how about three nights a year you get a good night sleep? You can have it every day with meditation.”
“Knowing that stillness is the space where all creative expression, peace, light, and love come to be is a powerfully energizing, yet calming experience. Knowing for sure that even in the daily craziness that bombards us from every direction, there is — still — the constancy of stillness. Only from that space can you create your best work and your best life.”
Religion or Spiritual faith is humanity’s way of explaining hope without in-your-face support, cause, and effect. Have faith in the power of the mind.
Dr. Charles R. Snyder, Psychologist, University of Kansas:
“Hope has proven a powerful predictor of outcome in every study we’ve done so far,
Andrew Carnegie (total personal charitable spending $80 billion):
“I am no longer cursed by poverty because I took possession of my own mind and that mind has yielded me every material thing I want, and much more than I need. But this power of mind is a universal one, available to the humblest person as it is to the greatest.”
According to the law of attraction,
by imagining your desire as though it were happening now you are programming the universe to unfold events that make your wish a reality. The stronger your faith the better it works – whether that faith is in God, ‘the Universe,’ or your mind. Whatever works for you. I like the term intention setting. However, most people know the term ‘law of attraction’ which I think works far better when you include mindfulness and compatible evidence-based positive psychology techniques.
Some have asked if the law of attraction works by focusing attention on the desired result, which is in future, and if mindfulness is about being present-centered, how can they work together? When doing the process you will be fully present in what you are doing. The mindfulness techniques significantly lesson all the distractions that may be negatively affecting your energy. You prep yourself with mindfulness. Then, with a clear mind and soothed vibration, you can use a higher level law of attraction process for manifesting. The way you learn it is seamless. Others may have you do all sorts of processes to “bring you up the emotional scale” and then in a few weeks you may be ready for the more powerful processes. (That is how I used to do it.) Mindfulness allows you to bypass all that. It gets your energy to where it needs to be a lot quicker and it helps you maintain an overall sense of well-being. This makes manifesting on an energetic level much easier.
Science is great but it is not the be all end all. A scientist can only observe what the limits of their technology allow. The scientific process requires proof from evidence within the boundaries of the scientific method. Beyond lies something unseen from the human side. A scientist requires that the effect is observed and verified. I don’t see anything wrong with that. But the scientist assumes that the cause and explanation must also be within the limitations of scientific examination. The true cause of what is observed may be something that science cannot perceive, as of yet. Beyond the scope of scientific observation is where the Law of Attraction does its best work.
“It’s the same process I used in bodybuilding: What you do is create a vision of who you want to be — and then live that picture as if it were already true“
“We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.”
“I would visualize having directors interested in me and people that I respected saying that “I like your work” or whatever that is. I would visualize things coming to me that I wanted or whatever, and I had nothing at that time, but it just made me feel better. At that time all it really was for me was making me feel better. I would drive home and think “well, I do have these things; they’re out there and I just don’t have a hold on them yet, but they’re out there….. I wrote myself a check for $10,000,000 for acting services rendered. I gave myself 3 years and I dated it Thanksgiving 1995. I put it in my wallet and I kept it there, and it deteriorated… But then, just before Thanksgiving 1995 I found out I was going to make $10,000,000 on Dumb and Dumber.“
Evidence-Based Strategies (cause and effect)
Social science has shown through various studies that certain actions [cause] often lead to the desired goal [effect].
There are proven methods that lead to success. Standard University showed that the ability to delay gratification so that you can stick to a plan of action is a proven means to progress toward a goal. The good thing is that it can be learned, and, perhaps, even better is there are ways you can circumvent will and grit through a system focused approach. Another example of evidence-based methods can mesh with mindfulness and the law of attraction is the subject of happiness. You see, happiness leads to better performance in tasks, better physical health, and more creativity; greater likelihood to get married, win job interviews, and make more money. Happy people are more productive and philanthropic, and cope better with the adversities of life. Happiness isn’t just the result of these things, studies show it is one of the causes. Fortunately, there a known factors that cultivate happiness. Think of it like it is a process similar to staying fit. On a metaphysical level, happiness produces a better vibration from which to attract positive experiences than the emotions that feel bad. Poor vibrational quality leads to poor outcomes. Actions that cultivate and maintain happiness make the journey to where you want to be far less daunting. It may even be attractive. That is exactly what you want; the journey is the cake and the destination is the icing. It is your life, why waste it? Check out the program.
“If your goal is to lose ten pounds, you may wake up each day with failure in mind because the goal is hard to reach, and you are only progressing by small amounts. It takes up all your willpower. I recommend that instead of a goal you have a system. Willpower is a finite resource. Don’t pick a model that has failure built into it and requires you constantly drain a finite resource.” ~ Scott Adams
“Habits are like financial capital – forming one today is an investment that will automatically give out returns for years to come.”

Robert coaches for specific purposes. He also has a course for those who wish to learn all about the law of attraction for their life and to, perhaps, become coaches themselves; you can be tutored and coached at the same time. Contact Robert for scheduling. This course in the law of attraction is one on one but if one wishes to split the cost with a friend that is fine. Robert is a Reiki master teacher.
