[4:44] Why should we listen to you?
I have 21 years of experience that you can bypass. I have a lot of pain that you can sidestep by learning through my experiences vicariously instead of having to do it on your own. By doing so, you might find your abundance activated, your purpose amplified, and the meaning cemented in what you’re going to do from that day forward.
[6:26] How did you become confident in the area that you are working?
I didn’t choose this. It chose me. I was dragged kicking and screaming until the moment came where I shut up long enough to see the light that was available on the other side of my resistance. I realized what God had been trying to set me up into. My first business was meant to help people. That’s what I stepped out to do. That’s the thing that cascaded into me going down an utterly audacious path of ending up in jail and rebuilding my life again. I ended up facing all of these dark shadows.
[8:32] I went through a course of events where the truth I was asked to step into was made available to me. The fears that I had were rendered null and void. I shut up long enough to taste it and be in it. Now, I’m so fulfilled. It doesn’t feel like I’m working. I live life on my terms.
[9:52] How did you overcome fear?
When I was 17 years old, I wasn’t chasing girls. I was focused on reading and chasing success. Over the years, I’ve come to see that so much of what we fear is based on stories. We told ourselves about something that hadn’t even happened yet. When I define anxiety, the fact is that it hasn’t happened yet. When there’s a series of outcomes which may or may not be true, why are we giving our attention to what we don’t even like? For me, running my thing unemployed was primarily about looking at the story, challenging the truth, and overcoming it.
[11:53] When you’re spiraling, it’s when you are resourced to have an internal thing. So take it to its final thing where you are fearful. If it happens, it happens. But by shining a light and thinking about what you’re thinking about separately from it, you’re no longer emotionally engaged in it. You can become the witness of it and see it dispassionately.
[14:56] Dream with your Eyes open with Dan
We are always in a dream state. Some of that dream state is lucid, and some of it is not. Some of our dreams happen when we’re asleep. When we look at the metaphysical realm that discussions are happening, we’re seeing more and more of these parallels between actively creating your reality. I’m inviting people to have an experience where they have greater dominion over what they’re doing every day that moves from a normal sleeping state into a lucid dreaming state. From that place, we can have a conscious involvement in what we’re creating. We can therefore direct to have more meaning by being more purposeful.
[18:38] How do you get to that point of having internal authority?
I’m not full of it. Everything I say, I know, is real because I’ve lived in it. I’m sharing my experiences. I’m not trying to tell anybody that I’m perfect. I’ve messed up even on the road that I’m in now. Taking the humble hat off is the authenticity of what I’m speaking that comes from the fact that I live what I say. Anything that goes in a book has been tested in my life. Everything that goes out into the general public has been field-tested. When I’m speaking, I’m speaking from not hope or possibility but from something that I’ve seen time and time again.
[21:39] Understanding how to Invest in yourself
Have some experience with the spiritual and the mindset, whether through a religious perspective, spiritual perspective, or even just mindfulness practice. If you have those three components, then we could speak the same language. If we could speak the same language, we could definitely create something different.
[23:08] Manifesting Reality
We’re all manifesting all the time. Physical reality is a manifestation of thought into form. When you close your eyes, there’s nothing there. But if you open your eyes, you just manifest form. Now, there’s nothing special about that everybody’s doing it all the time. But when people use manifestation than the current buzzword framework, that’s what I’m talking about.
[25:34] When we go into the quantum mechanics of how reality operates, all of those possibilities are real and true. For example, the fish can just jump out of the sea and jump in the boat. The likelihood of that is completely predicated on your openness of belief. Without experience, that’s not going to happen. So people are running around chasing after experiences that don’t match their actual belief system. They are not getting anything going down the spiral. They are taking some action from where they are now, opening up their belief system to allow more mystical ways for things to show up.
[27:15] What promise did God make to the world when he heard you needed you?
You are good enough.
[10:38 – 10:43] “Know that much of what we fear is based on stories we told ourselves about something that hasn’t even happened yet.”
[25:11 – 25:26] “The more you come into alignment with the belief, mindset, frequency of ownership of your worthiness, and capacity to have the thing, you’ll find that the “magic” of other forces coming to support the outcome increases.”
