“Sex transmutation is simple and easily explained. It means the switching of the mind from thoughts of physical expression, to thoughts of some other nature” says Hill. 

Hill gives a perfect example using a salesman. He says “The salesman who knows how to take his mind off the subject of sex, and direct it in sales effort with as much enthusiasm and determination as he would apply to its original purpose, has acquired the art of sex transmutation, whether he knows it or not.

It amazes me that he talks about how you can be lifted to the status of genius by using 10 methods of mind stimulation, 8 are constructive and 2 of them are destructive. One aha moment that I had was that when you could clear the clutter out of your mind and stimulate it to a high rate of vibration then you can lift yourself to heights such as someone above the clouds on an airplane and clearly see the picture by receiving hunches.

And the thing that is keeping me from doing that right now is the clutter in my mind due to all of the things that I am dealing with in distributing the estate and getting the house ready to sell but I know that is a temporary thing. As I said in a previous lesson, clutter of any kind is not your friend but an enemy!

One thing that I have noticed is that when I am on my motorcycle for an extended period of time thoughts and hunches come to me constantly that I don't get normally and I think that is because I am de-stressed and my mind is in neutral just enjoying what I love the most.

I know that Michael's favorite one of those 8 is self talk although that is listed as number eight on the list.

At the top of the list is a combination of love, sex, and romance. In my personal life I found that to be true once I had met Amy. She and I have both always loved music and that was one of the things that she was looking for to share with the partner, that love of music.

 Although she was seven years younger than me she had an older sister my age who shared the same music that I listen to with her when they were growing up. Amazing that music is number four on the list so we shared two out of the top four and  I also find that when I combine self talk with music it is more powerful for me.

However I think that all of the 8 so very important because we even see that there is even a mastermind involved and anyone that was on the call Saturday night can see how effective that is in working towards solving a problem or working towards a common goal. 

I have noticed how important love is in this whole equation and #5 on the list of 10 of mind stimuli is friends and I can't begin to tell you how important that has been to me through this whole process constantly lifting me up with encouraging words. They have been here supporting me through this whole thing and I was overwhelmed over the outpouring of birthday wishes they gave me recently. Yes friends are everything in life! They have showed me lots of love and my goal is continue to spread that love to others.

Even though I have lost Amy's physical presence this is what really gives me hope. “The emotion of love brings out, and develops, the artistic and the aesthetic nature of man. It leaves its impress upon one’s very soul, even after the fire has been subdued by time and circumstance.

Memories of love never pass. They linger, guide, and influence long after the source of stimulation has faded. There is nothing new in this. Every person, who has been moved by GENUINE LOVE, knows that it leaves enduring traces upon the human heart. The effect of love endures, because love is spiritual in nature. The man who cannot be stimulated to great heights of achievement by love, is hopeless-he is dead, though he may seem to live.

Even the memories of love are sufficient to lift one to a higher plane of creative effort. The major force of love may spend itself and pass away, like a fire which has burned itself out, but it leaves behind indelible marks as evidence that it passed that way. Its departure often prepares the human heart for a still greater love. Go back into your yesterdays, at times, and bathe your mind in the beautiful memories of past love. It will soften the influence of the present worries and annoyances. It will give you a source of escape from the unpleasant realities of life, and maybe—who knows?—your mind will yield to you, during this temporary retreat into the world of fantasy, ideas, or plans which may change the entire financial or spiritual status of your life.”

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Linda and Michael Dlouhy for believing in and supporting us and for all of my mastermind friends and partners who share their brilliance every week with me.
