MaxPower2U would like to wish each and every one of you a 2019 filled with Gratitude, Love, Prosperity, and Peace! As I reflect on 2018 from the beautiful El Camino Cemetery in San Diego California, I am reminded that I have a ton to be thankful for. I start with my ability to breathe and know that I am alive to witness the beauty, the challenges, the grief, the love, the resiliency, the tenacity, the promises, and all else that comes from being human on this physical journey. I am grateful to be in America and to have the perspective of how awesome it is to live in a country that can lift you up as you create your dreams and pursue your goals. A country in where many believe in the content of each other’s character and a willingness to allow for expression.
Yes, the cemetery is a place that puts life into perspective especially if you walk around and look at row after row of tombstones. You will be quickly reminded that some of those people departed this earth with things left undone, not experienced, maybe they didn’t forgive and let go, and maybe they never started that business they talked about starting for so long. There are many unfulfilled dreams and or realized ideas that left this earth without true expression. But if we believe in destiny, free will, then we probably can’t even question fate. But what we do have control over, is our own ability to create the type of life we want to experience. This is God given or Universal truth stated by many scholars, scientists, and philosophers. Will life always be perfect even though you try and create it to be in the image of perfection? No, not at all because without challenges, we wouldn’t grow. It is when life challenges us that we tend to express our true character.
In 2018, do you feel that you were challenged enough or do you feel that you stayed within your comfort zone? What challenges did you take on in order to grow as a person. They could’ve been subtle or they could’ve been huge! I challenged my comfort zone and went on a journey of self expression and discovery through reconnecting with my family in Mexico after a 20 year separation. Although, I did not know what to expect, I approached it with love, kindness and authenticity. I was not out to impress, but to be present with them and to get to know them in their environments. I would have to say that I feel very fulfilled in the many awesome experiences that I had with them and I am ready to create even more. The time and energy spent with my family is the most sacred to me. I have discovered that being authentic and being completely accepted by family is infinite treasure and a big reason to be grateful each and every day.
Although It is simply amazing to be accepted by your blood line, it is most beautiful when you accept yourself. Yes, when you fully accept and appreciate yourself, you will have much more of an open heart, mind and soul when you decide to reconnect with family, friends, and or colleagues. They will definitely sense your authenticity and will want to be around you even more. They will know that you offer love and kindness. You will be easily embraced and you will understand the power of love for the many days that you are gifted with on this beautiful planet. And this is applicable to everyone- but you do have to have a deeper understanding of many many different types of personalities on this Earth born from their own experiences. You see, it is awesome to have another year to continue to explore the Magic that this life has to offer! I Promise that if you approach it with a heart filled with Gratitude, you will have multiple great experiences and challenges. The challenges will be there to remind you that you are still alive and that you can utilize the many resources available on this planet to overcome anything!
In 2019, let us encounter it, experience it, challenge it, and welcome it with open hearts, minds, and souls!
With Love and Happy New Year,
Having a MaxPower approach to life is getting after it and trying your best even if it doesn’t turn out perfect! We often don’t do things in life out of fear of failing, or thinking that we can’t handle the success that comes from being great at something, or maybe afraid that we will lose those around us if they perceive us to be too perfect. There are many who won’t pursue the thing they love or who they have fallen in love with because they over worry about having to be perfect. They suffer from paralysis of analysis! They get all worked up about this and that and how and why- and for what? Possibly for something that may have been super easy to overcome and give them their dreams instead without having to rely on being that perfect person that they think they have to be.
Have you ever been a victim of this type of thinking? I have! I actually didn’t participate in many things for believing that I had to be perfect or near perfect in order to attempt something especially if it was required to do it in front of people. I actually wanted to so badly to try, but my gosh darn controling part of my self esteem, did not allow me to. Of course today I totally understand that if your soul has been tampered with, your emotions stepped on, and told by a several few people that think know better than you - that you aren’t worthy, you jus might start to believe those lies and they are going to keep you from playing in the game of life. You will find yourself on the sidelines too afraid to even be asked to try something that you just might be wonderful at because of what someone else thinks of you and not what you have tried for yourself yet. It is only their opinion, and you know what they say about opinions, they’re like senses, everyone has them! Lol...
My goal is to convince everyone that its never too early or too late to get involved in what you enjoy doing without having to apologize for it. If you are not hurting anyone or intruding into someone elses’s property or possessions, you are free to do what you believe with all your heart. Yes, you are in total control to attempt anything that is naturally calling you to express your God given talents. No Kung Fu master became as great as he or she is at their art without having to practice their art with deep focus and intensity. The practice and or energy spent on the thing that comes to you naturally will not seem like a ton of work because it is coming from your soul. It is coming from a place of purpose, a place of self expression of your Spirit. It is nothing short of perfection! And because you came from Divine perfection, guess what? Yup, you guessed it- you are already perfect! All you have to do is carve out that talent you came on this Earth to express and share it with the rest of us humans regardless of what that might be. Keep in mind that all of us are on that journey of learning how to align with Divinity, Spirituality, and our inner Perfection and they may not develop it as quickly as you may want them to. But they are allowed that time and peace to develop it and express it because our inner perfection is also known as the God within us all.
In order for us to continue to reach toward our MaxPower, we have first got to understand where we came from and know that there is a Super Power in the core of our beings that was granted to us by Divinity. In order to get in touch with this Super Power within us, we must believe that we were granted with the specific biological faculties that make it possible for us to connect to that Divinity. In order to use this Power, we must develop the two most powerful words in the English language.
Yes, they are the words “I am!” In order for me to believe that these 2 rods had so much Power, I had to take come to terms with who I am with who I really am and that I was made in the image of the most divine. It’s a journey that all of us as individuals must take for ourselves and find the answers we are all looking for. Once you ponder the words I Am and truly understand their immense power, you will work to live a life of service, adventure, and mentorship. After all, why are we even on this planet? Are we here just to set an alarm, wake and go work, get off and eat, meet with a couple of friends, watch a little tv and go to bed to do it all over again and again.
There is definitely much more to living a life of wondering what we came to this earth for and a lif e of uncertainty. The awesome thing is that we can create a life of purpose by using the two most powerful words that you will eventually discover and have full faith in. Once you understand this power and you use it consistently each and every day until if becomes part of your automatic routine, the way you see life completely changes. You will be able to have gratitude even for the smallest of things that is a part of your life. You will even be grateful for the hardest challenges that you will face. You will know that they are experiences that are in alignment with your “I Am” purpose!
The Power of “I Am” is such a personal experience that it’s truly amazing when you begin your I Am journey! But simply, if you start each sentence you choose to describe yourself with “ I Am” in a positive way, it will bring such blessings to you because apparently, you are speaking in the language in which the Divine understands and hears. The connection you feel will become more and more natural! It will feel more and more like a magical blessing! Try it, it’s worth all the benefits you give yourself! Happy XMas Eve!!!
In the Spirit of Christmas and the Holidays which are upon us, having the MaxPower lifestyle will always include a natural and authentic ability on your part to be a giving person. And by now, you should know that I am not talking about giving extravagant gifts that most people won’t use nor will they appreciate if they don’t truly come from your heart. A gift, doesn’t even have to be a material thing, it can be a nice card, a hug, a visit, a poem, a song, a walk with, spending quality time, helping with the trash, helping in the kitchen, and many more things and ways you can do to show that you truly care. Most people, or the majority of people know what LOVE looks like. They also know what it feels like especially when they are receiving it unconditionally. There have been miraculous stories about how people were down to their last 10 dollars, but they chose to give it to others who needed even more than them and then, by the Grace of the Divine, things started to come to them in greater numbers. If it was money they needed, it came 10 fold and etc. Some people’s lives have been turned for the best by a simple phone call that they receive from a loved one or a long lost friend. Do you know of any stories like this? I am pretty sure you do and I know that some have touched your heart strings.
Tony Robbins, the great Inspirational author, speaker, and mentor, talks about this all the time and how he got into the practice of feeding millions of people after gaining so much success in his own life. He told the story of how he was the recipient of a Thanksgiving meal when they truly needed it and he never forgot the feeling he got from that which turned his whole life into a life of service. He also told the story about how he only had several dollars in his pocket and he did not know how he was going to pay the rent that month, let alone eat, and he still gave those few dollars up which then caused the Universe to grant him all that he needed and more.
WHY? Why do you think this happens? How does the Universe know that we are at a breaking point and that we truly need help right now? This is such a fascinating phenomena to me and its been such a joy to witness and experience the power of giving. What’s interesting about it is that when your intention is to give and you give with such an open loving heart, it is as the gift you gave was a way to add immense Spiritual Power into your own life. There is no feeling like it! It feels so Spiritually amazing that it is tough to put words to the feeling that you get when you brighten another souls life. And Souls are always around us. Souls are always putting out their feelings where we can see them. Some souls are hurting so bad that not a word has to be said to know that they need some sort of comfort.
That is why I believe in the Power of you, the MaxPower in you and what you were called to do. To serve up a smile, to give service with love and a smile! To always remember that someone gave to you so that you can also give the GIFT of life. IN the Christmas and Holiday Spirit, I am truly grateful for the Gift of Giving, for you and your beautiful Soul.
To have a MaxPower attitude, you must have a deep belief that you are creating your daily reality with what you think and or focus each and every day! You must take full responsibility for this amazing power that we all have. Having this power doesn't mean that we all know exactly how we are going to use it, it means, that you can take yourself on that discovery journey to understand why you act and do the things that you do or not do. I hope you have a good sense of humor because crazy Shit can surface and you're going to start questioning, "Really, I am totally responsible for that or for them doing that to me?" Some stuff will hit you so hard that will make your eyes come out of your sockets! Just know that it is a wonderful thing cause you are on a human journey and humans are always learning about what they are manifesting- https://tinyurl.com/yb45elwa .
For example, let's say you get obsessed with wanting to be wealthy. Awesome aspiration because wealth is all about being abundant in different aspects of your life. You can be wealthy in love, time, resources, family, health, and money. The great thing about knowing about your power, is that you are responsible for creating all of this in your own life, no one is going to come to save you. Although, they will come to add support of course if you are providing them with value and service. For instance, I have been writing this Blog for almost 7 years now with the intent to inspire someone on their journey. To provide a positive platform for those who want to learn different strategies about wealth, health, and success. I can feel proud that I have consistently provided content and it fills me up with contribution. It gives me a deep sense of purpose and it challenges me to continue to grow. This is why when I run into something that I feel that will benefit my readers, I share it with them. https://tinyurl.com/yb45elwa. Then, it is up to them to decide if they wan to make it a part of their Divine journey. Maybe most of them already have the Secrets to Manifest anything they want and or are still searching for those Secrets in something else.
I was listening to a speaker talk about financial challenges. He said that our challenges with money aren't outside of you but deeply rooted in your mind. The speaker was TD Jakes. He spoke about how he overcame the mindset of lack and the work that he had to put into re-programming his mind for wealth. Yes, you too can do the same. You don't have to be a Bishop of a church like him, but you can discover the great things about you and what you can do to manifest all the money that you want to stop the Money Woes that mess with you.
1. Be clear about what you want, how much money you want and by when
2. Ask Big! Don't worry about how big you ask, the Universe wants to give you the Kingdom
3. Visualize- see it in the screen of your mind
4. Feel as you already possess it
5. Surrender, let Go and let God
My aspirations is to write a book about these methods to explain them in further detail. If you haven't heard of the late Rev. Ike, he is an early pioneer of all these methods which inspire me to study for many years and it has helped a ton.
In a MaxPower world, can what you believe about money make a difference in your life? T Harv Eker, the money guru talks about all of us having a Money BluePrint, a way and a reason as to why we believe or behave about money in a certain way. You first have to agree that you are a thinking person and that what you think are your thoughts. And since they're your thoughts, you can choose any thoughts you hold in your head about anything. And since you are human, you will be coming in contact with many things and people that you will have thoughts about and the thoughts that they will also have about you may make a difference on how you think about them. As you think, so are you!
The Key Point is that you understand that you can gain complete control of your thoughts and how you think about Money. I am totally convinced about the power of thought and it has been a journey to believe new things about money because of the way I thought and was anchored to money. To me, Money was tied to strong negative emotions because as a child, I experienced some very defining moments when it came to the issue of Money. So if money was painful, why would I want it aroung in my life- I didn't realize that I was keeping it away from me because of what I had directly and indirectly experienced with it. I knew I had some work to do when I found the secret to re-connecting with the proper energy of Money and not the energy that repelled it away from me.
Today, I Believe that Money: is energy, that it is essential, its power is given by me, its always flowing and circulating, and that it has ears and will listen to your wishes about it.
Yes, Money is what I want it to represent in my life. Money is a vital and very necessary part of my life and I love it. I don't hate it or have any ill will toward it. I know that Money and I are friends and is there to be used and work for me however I choose it to work for me. It has no power over me but the power that I give it. It is a big part of my life because it provides me with the opportunities to give back and share things with others in a positive way.
Create a Massive Reason as to Why you want more Money in your life: Remember that Money has ears and is always listening.
Five Reasons why I want to attract more Money now: Your reasons can be completely different and that is super okay! Go as big as you want to with it! Nothing is too big to ask for. But you have to Believe that Money will come your way and that you deserve it. So here are mine and they can change...
1. Time with Family
2. Travel/Visit different parts of the world and take family with me
3. Purchase a home
4. Create and Maintain business that creates passive income
5. To mentor/to give back and contribute
Challenge yourself and gain the confidence to look into your money matters. Its one of the hardest things to do, but its also one of the most important things that you will ever do. Keep in mind that it is your mind, your mind will listen to you and it does take some work to change some of the ways we think about Money. The emphasis is not on falling in Love or in Power with Money, but in knowing that you can change what you believe what Money is and how you can make it work for you and not against you.
Learning about your MaxPower is also learning about where the life force begins and how you can tap into it for your own Powerful manifestations. After watching and reading about the "Ice Man", Wim Hof, who apparently used his breath in a certain way to get in touch with his inner or deeper subconscious as he explained, I was fascinated with his ability to control his own mind and body by focusing on a certain method of breathing. BREATHING- something that we do naturally and then we don't even think about what else we can do with it, the benefits of breathing a certain way etc.
It has captured many people's imagination, so much so to the point that it is now called the Wim Hof method. He is all over the internet explaining the technique and its amazing benefits. Of course, like myself, he has been on a journey to understand human behavior, human capacity and thus, he has read a ton of books, watch a ton of videos, but it wasn't until he was deeply down and depressed due to his wife committing suicide, that he took the plunge. He literally took a plunge in Ice Water because he felt that it was calling him.
Little did he know that this Ice Plunge would change his life forever. He goes on to explain that his body did go into a bit of a shock and that all of a sudden, he was forced to breathe differently and in doing so, he created an environment in his body which allowed him to withstand the frozen water. He went into a deep calmness that he had never felt before and became one with the elements around him. Due to him being fascinated by how well he could control his body through breathing, he continued to challenge himself with other stunts. He has gone snow mountain climbing in shorts and shirtless, has multiple records of being submerged in ice for over 2 hours, has ran a marathon in the desert with no water, he has fought off diseases that have been injected into him by scientists and so on and so on.
I would say that he does this through his breathing, but breathing is the gateway to what truly is happening to him. I believe that he has found the ability to connect to his every powerful cell in his body in order for them to act and respond in the manner that he needs them to. Can we also do this? He has taught many people to do this, and there are more and more people who are starting to breathe differently. I have to admit that I am one of them and I Love it! I feel rejuvenated after a few breaths and I feel able to tackle just about anything. I completely believe in this method and know that it is a huge part of bringing you the MaxPower approach!
A MaxPower2u Mindset is based on a mind that knows with exact certainty that his or her individual power lies deep within one’s soul and its there waiting to be used in the Grandest of ways by anyone willing to seek and dive into this Divine power that was granted to us at birth! One thing is to write or read about it and another thing is to surrender to it for complete and utter inward Power. You are already created and there is nothing to recreate physically, but there must be a re-understanding, re-thinking, re-believing, that there is many many different unique ways we can choose to approach this incredibly beautiful life!
We have to know with certainty that our ability to tap into the power of gratitude is only the beginning and never the ending because it will always play a constant role in your positive and optimistic life when working to manifest that amazing power within your sole to create the experiences that you long for.
Decide what you want to see, be or do with such conviction that there no limitations,but the ones you place on yourself and you will be amazed how powerful the Universe truly is.
Yes, Do you agree or dis-agree that our words and or the words of others have the potential to be magical? Isn't it amazing that words come in many many formats in terms of languages and sounds. Yes, even sounds that are made can have and impact on the life of others and on your own life! They can either be negative or positive impacts. It all depends on the Words and the intention, intensity, and seriousness of those words being said.
We are so driven by what we say and what is said to us, but hopefully you will understand that the most important words in the world are the ones you say to yourself. Yes, because the ones we say to ourselves are creating the reality we face each and every day. Wow- did you get that? Our words create the reality that we face each and every day.
Once you truly believe to have this power, life will seem a bit more relaxed and much more fun. I create the love I need by the loving words that I say and use in my daily life. I create a giving environment by what I give. It doesn't even have to be money, but some type of valuable energy that is valuable to someone else! But first, valuable to yourself!

There is MaxPOwer in many things and there is extreme power when making a Promise! A promise is future driven and it sends out a massive intention in the form of owed energy! This is why it is advised to never make a promise unless you mean to follow through, cause then a hex or a promise will be placed on you, but probably from a strong negative intention.
When you or someone you love promises to do something for you, it is almost a deep guarantee that they or you are going to follow through with that thing you said you would do. A promise leads a person to believe that regardless of any obstacles, there must be a way to get things done. It somehow turns you into a Super Hero in a way.
Viktr Frankl in his great book, "Mans Search for Meaning", he indirectly talked about promises, but instead, he talked about how he and others found the hope necessary to survive the unbearable conditions while serving time in the Nazi camps. He spoke about how he found strength in suffering and meaning in the midst of the harshest conditions. He made a promise to himself that he would never allow the government nor his tormentors to take his will to live away from him. Instead, he would remain in control of his total being at all times.
If you want results from yourself, your spouse, and or anyone, make them promise you or even have them write a promise letter and have them sign it! You will see the magic in making a Promise! I Promise you!!!
