About Shields
Joined March 2011
Long after most seniors have retired, I have moved from Me. to WV. and am starting up in real estate again. I am also starting again with Wealthy Affiliate.
This time, I hope both of them take off and further enrich my life with online and offline friends. I have a wealth of education and experience: English teacher, high school counselor, decades of real estate, incredible experiences in hypnosis, Silva Mind Method, NLP, Time Line work, training in coaching: hypnosis and Law of Attraction. I'd rather not mention how many different times I tried to get somewhere on the internet, without success. I have written a few articles and am considered by Ezine Articles to be an Expert Author there. However, with the ultimate faith and belief that I can make miracles happen for people who work with me in real estate, and with as much enthusiasm as I can contain, I look forward to what tomorrow brings. Also I have added a few articles to Street Articles; that's 17. In no time at all i will have begun my first blog, called www.NoDietWeightLossTips.com. I've just made my first post, and I don't know how to show it to you. HELP

Came over to your space after reading your comment to Darlene needing to temporarily go. You do have a fascinating profile -- SILVA and NLP -- yes I studied it years ago and applied it and it helped to "co create" some amazing changes at the time. Here in Hawaii there is a whole subculture of similar concepts in genres like HUNA. All the best -- keep some of those busy days reserved for yourself from time to time! Your website leaves us hanging -- might want to add a few additions!

Oh boy! I jumped around into so many different areas, I don't know where to start. Over the past 25 years I've been working in the printing industry. Graphic arts and printing presses. I've done a lot as a homeowner and property owner. Electric, plumbing, construction, etc. I always like that type of hands on work. The work was useful and saved money. I had the task and focused on it.
My reading and inner pursuits always seemed to focus on breaking the boundaries of the known. Religions from all over the world, ancient magic, pseudo-sciences.
It seems we have a lot in common. Have you considered any writing in areas of your interests. You mentioned in you profile, Ezine Articles and expert Author. What are the topics of your current articles? Are they self help type?

I missed commenting on your earlier reading, so I'll comment now: Reich was a Maine person (not far from where I lived before I moved here. There was/is a center dedicated to him (in Rangely--I think). I've been there, and at that time there was a cloud buster right out in the ope n.) He died in a Maine prison for curing cancer. Re. Tesla. What a fantastic person. What interests me most about him is his mind. Beyond brilliant!
Have you delved into psychotronics at all. That's where I learned about cosmic pipes for agriculture--no electricity, no pesticides.
I've written about things like Road Rage, Making money from the inside out, weight loss (again, from the inside), NLP, subconscious, self improvement, EFT couple of book reviews on transdermal magnesium, and also on water.
That about covers me. I am relentless in learning, so I do not write as I should . Also, I sell real estate, and that takes time away from writing. I'm planning a Kindle on Answering Questions that add value to your home without major re-do and with daily thought and practice. Like 10 minutes a day on intention and minor action.

I'll have to ask you questions re. all those homeowner type things you can do. I don't really get into religion, but I surely like the pseudo-sciences. Sorry to take up your time. I just got back from doing an open house, and I think I'll turn on the TV to shut off my mind. Smiles.

Hi, thanks for the return follow. With you background I can only say the pleasure is all mine. My eyes perked when I saw in you profile you have hypnosis experience. How cool is that!
Reply
Shields Premium
Very cool indeed! Something you do? Or do you plan to learn or practice in the future?
I would not be surprised that many of the students here have used it to stop smoking or lose weight.. Best of hypnosis is that it introduces you to ways the mind can operate.
Without any altered states of consciousness in your experience, you cannot guess just exactly how powerful humans are.
Reply
thendiy Premium
I have to agree completely! I'm a long time lover of consciousness expansion. I have touched on self hypnosis in my past. What's available for us to use is, as an understatement, the tip of the iceberg. I'm interested in learning more from you in your abundant experiences with hypnosis.

Hi again, I have taken some time to visit your website. Very refreshing, very appealing. I can well imagine the responses you will get after it is discovered. I'll spend more time on it when I get a chance. (I am so tired of sites simply designed to make money.)
Did you ever study any Silva Method? What kind of reading are you doing these days?
Keep in touch and enjoy WAU!

thendiy Premium
I'm glad you're pleased with the site. I do agree with you about sites designed to make money. That is something I don't want to ruin this site with. Money is an issue to me. I do plan to offer links to Amazon, promoting book sale. But I'm trying to do it in a way that is offering convenience to the reader and not swarming them with buy this and buy that. As far as Silva Method, I've never heard of it before (I'll go and Google it after this post).
I love reading strange books. Recently Ive been reading in areas like Nikola Tesla, Wilhelm Reich, books on unusual discoveries and experiments, like the ones that have been silenced because corporations will have a hard time exploiting it for profit.

Hi again, I just Googled the Silva Method. Something I can surely agree to its benefits. I almost signed up. Maybe I will. Definitely my kind of exploration.
Reply
Shields Premium
I'm excited to speak to someone who is beginning to think of Silva. I suggest the books. With your background, interests, and mind the books may captivate you. Silva teaches you to connect with Higher Intelligence and use this hook-up to move within subjective communication to achieve what is for the Best of All Concerned.
Since you can already go to self-hypnosis, you have the first training step of going to alpha already completed. Now the fun begins! Somehow, once the blockage of beta is overcome, there is no reason to be limited. I always remember a line from a poem I read, "...may I pretend this chrysalis of skin defines the bounds I move within?" No, not ever! As your website proves, you know places the mind can go. I can't say this book, The Silva Mind Control Method for Business Managers, would appear to be choice. Oddly enough, after having read them all, taking week-end classes, listening to cassettes, and practicing, I only found it last year and hesitated--after all, what else could there be? Oh, well....so don't bother recommending me to Amazon--it's my first cousin already. So now I suggest you do get the book. You have the tool in your mind's freedom, so you can now add techniques to enrich that mind. Even though you can go deeper in meditation, even to the point of nothingness, it does not interest me; I prefer to go to openness of Silva as the feeling is intoxicating and enriching.
Excuse me for blathering: you are the first person I have said so much to. I feel as though I know you.
What else are you interested in?

Thank you so much for the invitation to your first performance. You did yourself proud, and I'm proud of you, too. You show yourself to be a person of value and you even mentioned honor/honorable, a term that is rapidly disappearing from our country. And you mentioned that your horse loves you. That was risky, but it was so sincere. If the real intention of doing anyhing online in the beginning is to establish rapport, I think you hit it spot-on. Tony Robbins, move over!

Terrific, can't wait to see your blessing in disguise website!!!!!!!!!
Reply
Shields Premium
I have an idea for you and for all the others who have been laid off: let's call it an opportunity shift, a blessing in disguise. That sounds so much better, doesn't it? Somehow laid off makes you feel inadequate, not chosen, a failure--even when we know it has nothing to do with us.
Then, now that you are here with this great group of knowledgeable caring people, you can refer to us not as" them," but as us because you are one of us now. So I say, "Welcome!"

Hello again, Shields. I ran across something the other day. I received an e-mail from a Burt Goldman, apparently he co-authored a book with Jose Silva and was also an instructor of the Silva Method. I was wondering if you had ever heard of him. He is currently teaching a course on Quantum Jumping. Interesting subject!
Reply
Shields Premium
Hi again, I sure heard of Burt Goldman. He was one of the top trainers and did write one of the Jose Silva books. I watched his program of the American Monk, which definitely was the Silva Method and quite good, so good in fact, that I almost feel that I know him. I purchased and used Quantum Jumping, too. Strange as the concept seems, it is just another dimension of mind--why not? Somewhere I have a list of about 250 things you can do using the Method. I respect Jose Silva and all the people who worked with him to teach us so much that was totally unacknowledged before him.
My life is enriched because of Silva. By the way, been to Alpha lately?

Hello Shields. I really liked your comment on Daniels rant. I haven't heard of the Silva Method for years now. Very happy to connect with a fellow graduate. I haven't been practicing those methods for years. Now would be a good time to start up again. I will be following you and I wish you great success.

By all means, you should get back on the Silva Method. I read something or other every week or more often. Did you ever read the Silva Mind Control Method for Business Managers. I thought I had heard and read it all, but lo and behold, more insight. Life is not the same without Jose's insights. I wonder if anyone else has been to Silva and I hope they join us if they have. Welcome again.

Thanks for that tip. I will see if I can come across a copy. Unfortunately I have lost my book on the original course over the years. That course had a tremendous effect on my life. I would recommend it to anybody.
Reply
Shields Premium
Amazon.com They have it all. The new system lacks the human touch of Jose and the insight of Robert Stone as well. I'm thrilled to know anyone who has the past in his memory. This world needs what was taught back then. I sometimes wonder how my own life would have gone if I had not learned all the techniques.

Hi Shields, trying to sell real estate here in Cyprus is like trying to get rocking horse dung, the euro bail out for Cyprus not over yet, money is still limited with drawls, but in saying that you have a wealth of knowledge, good to know you.

I've just checked your House on the Hill. I don't know the area. But I know the experience of re-doing (2)old houses. Oddly enough I never thought of doing a blog at that time. You are inspiring. I think you will find many others on WA who also can be inspiring. I'm falling in love with the community, just as I fell in love with Me. I was south of Portland, except a ten year stint in Central Me. Skowhegan-Canaan-Waterville area. Oh, the real good news about Whole Foods is that they are eliminating GMOs. Hurrah! And welcome again.

Welcome to WA. There's lots of info on this site so don't let it blow your mind. Follow the 30 training offered here and also go to WAbinars and go to Affiliate Walk Through parts 1 & 2. There it will put it all together for you. I also suggest going to potpiegirls blog. She good. MUCH SUCCESS

Coming from a background of teacher, counselor, and sales, I took to the computer kicking and screaming, but I felt it was the future, and I needed to learn it. That was in 2005 just when real estate hit the deep slide.
No one can ever say I was not persistent, but there was not one single aspect of this technological beast that came easy.
Still, I find it incredibly difficult, but now that Jennifer has led me to Wealthy Affiliate, I truly believe I'm on my way. And I am full of joy and I am grateful.
