Dr Wayne Dyer’s Power of Intention, and more

Sunday, February 28th, 2010

Yesterday I took a few hours to see the videos of Dr. Wayne Dyer – the Power of Intention part 1 and part 2. You can follow the above link and watch these if you have about 135 minutes to spare, and I highly recommend that you do. You will enjoy yourself – triust me, as I kept grinning and having good time while watching and listening. There are more of his videos on the above page, such as – “101 ways to transform your life”. And these are such a jewels and for free.

This is a short version of part1 of the Power of Intention on youtube

These are the steps of the Power of Intention:

1. Get clear about something you want and write it down.

2. Share your intention with someone in a way that will supportively hold you accountable to taking action.

3. Do something today to demonstrate your commitment to your intention.

4. Acknowledge that you did what you said you would and then, take the next step.

and when you follow these steps you will see the Power of Intention working miracles in your life.

Some will teach you NOT to share your desires, and intentions with others. Especially if the people (family or friends) will react negatively and bring you into doubt mode. It will only make your work harder. The best thing in my opinion is to share with people that will enrich you instead of bringing you and your dreams down.
And if you have no such people around – keep it for yourself until you have achieved what you were striving for. More power to you and stay always Fabulous…

The Life Wish – a real Castle, and, than the Safest place around

Sunday, February 21st, 2010

My life wish has always been to live in a real castle. And my mother has never agreed with this wish of mine, while asking me why I would like to live in a museum. And bringing up all the practical issues that are making such a life wish a total nonsense. However – the practical issues, such as, cost of renovations, and cost of energy, and cost of living – could not bother me, and I kept on dreaming about owning my real castle.

So, I keep checking for castles for sale around Europe, and I finally found the one that I’ve been looking for all my life. The castle is on top of a hill and the surrounding area is absolutely beautiful and unspoiled. There is nothing around but 10 hectare of countryside. There are no neighbors, and the nearest village is 1.5 mile away, and the nearest town is 15 miles away from the hill’s castle. I will only say that the castle is based in the South of France, and that the castle was, build in the XIV century, and renovated in the nineteenth century.

And what is the reason for not sharing more about it? Well, it is not ours as, yet, and I am not going to share it’s address online just the way I am not sharing my address here. Besides, I thought about safety and security as well. Will it be safe to live so far from others? And even if I have security systems installed on the outside and the inside the castle – how long will it take for police to show up once the alarm has gone off? Which makes clear to me that I must have a few panic rooms and safe cores inside the castle where I will be safe until the police shows up.

And because of all these worries about the safety of the castle – if we are to purchase it – a weird synchronicity led me to a news story on Yahoo today. It is about the safest house in the world. And the price tag is huge. Nevertheless it does give one a real sense of safety. Considering it all, it will not be an easy task to fulfill my life wish and buy the castle. As only one third of it has been made habitable up till now, and there are many works left to do. Counting all the costs – it goes far above our possibilities right now.

No matter really as I am definitely going to fulfill this life wish of mine – one way or another. Especially now that I finally found the castle of my dreams. Wish me luck and stay fabulous…

Is Change OK?

Tuesday, February 16th, 2010

No, for me change is definitely not OK, and I dislike it very much. And even if I feel the urge to change something – than my unconscious mind is trying to persuade me not to do it. Perhaps this is a challenge for the majority to see to it that something changes. Be it in their personal life style – such as loosing 20 pounds, or to take the step and change their job or career. And especially so when something life changing is involved – like what Karl Rebeder did with his fortune – giving it all away in his pursuit of happiness.

More than a month ago I read a post of Seth Godin that struck a tune within me. What exactly do I mean? That not everything is going to be OK when a change is made – no matter how much you wish for it. Nevertheless – too much thinking and pondering is also not OK. And most of the times one should react rapidly instead of loosing time in pondering and thinking instead of acting.

And here is a YouTube video with another view on change that made me smile 😉

Money Can’t Buy Happiness Indeed…

Wednesday, February 10th, 2010

I stumbled on a Yahoo News story tonight about Karl Rebeder – a Millionaire – who gave all his money and properties to charities set up by himself. And you should go to read the post, and see the comments – many of which left me wondering again about our judgmental human nature – so totally useless… And how difficult it is for most to see the goodness in people when it’s due.


In all honesty – I’ve never seen money making anyone happy. However – the same is true for the statement he made to the Daily Telegraph:

“Money is counterproductive – it prevents happiness to come.”

I’ve always seen wealth and money as a way to be free and be able to live a satisfactory way of life. And this is different for everyone. Money cannot buy one a real love, nor happiness, or health. It could make life much easier than it is to live life while struggling to pay the bills and being unable to enjoy time with the people you love, and doing the things you love doing. I think, he meant to say that he is missing a “Real Purpose” in life that could make him happy, and that probably “less is more” for him at this stage of his life. Here you can read more about Karl Rebeder and this story.

Now I’d love to hear your opinion about this story, and do you agree with his statements. Stay always fabulous and happy!

Winner of the Intuition Story Challenge – the Silva Intuition System

Monday, February 8th, 2010

Let me start by saying that me – yours truly is not one of the winners, but my better half – Willem is. And he is among the winners because of a story that happened with us about 20 years ago. To see what he wrote – click on the above link, and read it on the FinerMinds.com blog, or download the PDF with the winning 15 stories from the same post.

Willem did receive the email with login details to the Silva Intuition System and is busy with the course already. And I will make sure to see into it myself. Several years ago I did purchase several book and CD’s of the Silva System, and was pleased with the results until I was using it. One of the bad personal traits I have is that I get very easily bored with whatsoever that I am busy with, and never keep up with anything that I start because of it. So, I also gave up on the Silva System within a year of starting with it. A big mistake – so I promised myself that whatever feelings of boredom come forth due to the length of use of the Silva Intuition System – I am not going to give up on using it.

It could be a wishful thinking but I am going to give it an honest try since I do believe in the Silva methodology and it’s results. However let me also state that there are some very rotten apples in the Self Help Guru industry, and that I expect nothing less from the readers of Totally-Useless.com than to be critical and aware of the huge promises made in sales pitches that all in all contain rehashed or “borrowed” already available info from books and courses, or downright misleading promises as to what those program could do for you. A few great examples are to be found of the following two blogs – beyondgrowth.net and Whirled Musings.

Be always fabulous!
