The Self Mastery 1 course will guide you through practices that will integrate into a system of awareness and skepticism. Your heightened self awareness and skepticism skills will be applied to dismantling beliefs that are at the core of sabotaging behaviors and emotional reactions. These mindfulness skills will build through very practical exercises in each lesson. The application of these skills will allow you to shift your perspective and dismantle beliefs that were previously unconscious to you.
Some of the benefits will be:
If you want to start the Self Mastery Course 1 while you are still working on the introductory sessions that is fine. You can effectively do exercises from both in parallel. It means you will be getting sessions about once a week for the first few weeks instead of once every two weeks. This is manageable. Other people will prefer to spend the full two weeks on a session integrating it further before adding a new exercise. Both approaches can be effective.
Lessons will be available in your account here at pathwaytohappiness.com. Each lesson contains an intro video, lesson audio (listen on website or download to your device) and notes about the lesson and the exercises. There is also specific instructions on how to address resistance and sabotage patterns that may show up. There is a support material section where you can find related content from the blog, the podcast and the Youtube channel that addresses the lesson topic.

Because you are being set up for success. If you had all the lessons at once your mind would be filled with information but you would not have practiced anything yet.
For change to happen new neural pathways need to be connected and your brain and nervous system re-trained. That process does not happen with just getting knowledge.
What many people have learned is that reading a lot of books is not likely to change your emotional patterns. If you are trying to change thoughts, all it does is give you more to think about in the same way.
For success in making the changes you want to make you will need a different approach than just having information. You will need to do different things so those new patterns seep down into your unconscious.
Results will happen right away. However, the results your ego mind will hope for are different than what will happen right away.
If you do the gratitude exercise, you may have an immediate feeling of gratitude. You have an immediate result of changing your emotional state using your own attention.
This may not be the immediate result of getting ride of jealousy, anger, or insecurity you are looking for. But in my experience getting an immediate change at that level, for something that has likely been a pattern for years doesn’t usually change in one day.
So the next result you can immediately get is to notice this false belief about “immediate change” and begin to be skeptical of this expectation in your mind.
You will be getting immediate changes when you practice each exercise. That immediate result is taking you one step closer to your bigger goal.
Beliefs, most of which are in the unconscious mind, run 95% of emotions, behaviors, and thoughts. When you change beliefs, you can change all three.
This course specifically targets and trains you how to identify and change beliefs. The skills you learn will also allow you to find and identify unconscious beliefs. As you develop these skills for changing beliefs you can apply them to any issue in your life.
The essential skills you will develop involve changing your perspective, recovering your personal power from a thought, gaining control over your attention,, and learning ways to change your emotions.
By developing these skills you will have much greater control over your self, your life, and anything you want to change.
Most coaching course tell you all the things you need to do to be a success. Then somewhere in there they tell you that for the material to work you will have to eliminate any unconscious false beliefs. These unconscious belief programs will sabotage your success. However they don’t usually address how to do that or how to do that effectively.
The Self Mastery Courses do.
These courses specifically guide you to identify and change the belief systems programs that have been hiding in your unconscious patterns. You will develop heightened awareness to wake up from their tricks, and have practical tools to change what you find.
The simple, yet profound concept of Judge and Victim played in my mind for a long time and now I think it is time to dissolve both and to exercise my emotions at will. I have no words to express my gratitude.
I'm starting to have more days where the only emotion is gratefulness
Thank you for opening my mind to a whole new way of understanding.
Your brilliant insights are really helping me through what has been a very tough 6 years. I finally feel I am getting to a place where I can leave some stuff behind me.
I went to the source of my jealousy and insecurities issues and I have accepted life the way it is. I have some days better than others. I am still a work in progress.
The gift that you have given me can never be measured. The life that I have gained is one I did not know existed. I hope you know what a tremendous difference you have made in my life, and no doubt in others.
