Over the past weekend I had the amazing opportunity of attending the Hay House Writers Seminar in Sydney as I had been fortunate due to the help and support of many voting for me and had WON a free ticket to the event.
Talk about Awesome, I learnt so much and had many questions and thoughts answered in relation to my self-published soon to be BEST SELLING ‘4 Week Program!’ plus my marketing plan, my platforms, my websites and the way I am implementing my goals and book / program within the community.
jeanette maynes hao house writers seminarThe energy and vibration in the room was electric and I met so many wonderful friendly like minded people. I hung out with a lovely lady and made a new friend also a ticket winner being Melissa Gibson a psychic, we got along fabulously – the Butterfly Whisperer.
Now to finalise my Synopsis to present to Hay House!
Someone (or maybe more than one person) who attended the seminar will WIN a publishing package with them; I could be the next best selling author accelerating my passion to “Get Australia Motivated!”. I hope so as I can feel it within my whole being!!

I had the pleasure of meeting and having a photo with the authors in order (the 1st four even before the seminar started!) as per my Law of Attraction photo print out (pretty powerful – reminds me of my Law of Attraction Donald Trump picture here) and the rest throughout the two days. I was also on the print out as a featured author as I will be speaking at the seminar in the future (L.O.A. at work). I even had a photo taken on stage with my book to assist my Law of Attraction processes! All the authors had such inspiring stories and were great at public speaking.

After the seminar I ran 11.5km around Sydney for some exercise and even managed to get my weekly stair runs in at the ‘Oprah’ House.

I received quite a few looks and comments, it appears fluro yellow socks and runners are not very common in Sydney!

My first ever speech!

 

Today I presented my first ever half hour speech at the Fraser Coast University with Matthew Condon, Hugh Lunn, & Chris Collin.

“Set a goal to achieve something that is so big, so exhilarating that it excites you and scares you at the same time. It must be a goal that is so appealing, so much in line with your spiritual core, that you can’t get it out of your mind. If you do not get chills when you set a goal, you’re not setting big enough goals.” – Bob Proctor

When the library asked me to do this speech I though  …NOW This one is a Goal that Chills me! Presenting my first ever half hour speech at the university in the auditorium!!

Public Speaking I thought …. well I passed a toast masters course in grade 8 when I was 13, I’m sure I’ll remember how to do it! Talk about Face a Fear!

Luckily I do not think of fear as fear, I see it as adrenalin, excitement, anticipation and the opportunity to conquer a goal. So the preparation begin, I organised this goal into small achievable chunks plus I clearly pictured in my mind the task as being completed and an absolute huge success!! I saw a beer in my hand tonight to celebrate a successful speech!

I designed this picture two years ago when attending the business seminar in Sydney seminar, Talk about ‘Law of Attraction!’ What have I been subconsciously attracting and where could public speaking lead to and with whom ….. please click here to view my ebooks.

 

“I attended Jeanette Maynes first ever speech which the crowd clearly enjoyed – and I did too. Jeanette envelopes the audience with her presence and her vibrant personality and a clear command of her subjects. She made the audience laugh; showed great photos to go with her stories – but most of all it was her beautiful, direct, dinkum Australian accent – something you rarely hear anymore. She was a HIT!”
– Hugh Lunn |  Award Winning Author

 

“I  attended a talk by Jeanette Maynes at  the Hervey Bay USQ, where she spoke on the E Books she had published. The first part of the talk covered her experience of her trek to Mt Everest Base Camp with all the trials and triumphs that she encountered along the way. I found this account very engaging, and it fascinated me as to how someone would so willingly put themself through  t hat kind of challenge.   It was wonderful to be provided with an understanding of the cultural side of the Sherpas who assist climbers with their backpacks, and become the climbers’ best friend. At times it was humourous, and always uplifting. She held the attention of her audience well, which was assisted with the use of some great photos that she had taken along the way.

The second part of her talk was on running across The Great Wall of China. This account also kept her audience riveted as we listened  as to why Jeanette, would willingly welcome such a challenging experience. She provided some great insights into what you needed to tell yourself, and the mindset that was needed to keep going until the end, even long after the body wants to give up. Once again, there were some top quality photos to enhance her story.

The third part of her story, focussed on her role as a Personal Trainer and her ideas for promoting good health to her clients. She covered diet and exercise, and certainly showed us that she had walked the walk, and wasn’t just talking the talk. Although I found this talk helpful, I would have loved to have heard more of her own personal weight loss story, and the trials she faced along the way.  I think I would have identified with her story a little more, if this had been the case.

The next section, included her quest to become the best she could be, by reading books and attending seminars presented by the most successful  businessmen  in the world . Jeanettes’  account of meeting her idol,  Donald Trump, and the visualisation that had preceded  this event, was both touching and impressive. It was made clear to all of us, what was possible if you dared to dream, as she had.

In conclusion, Jeanette discussed her passion for graphic design, and website designing. Against the backdrop of the other topics she had discussed, this topic was a wonderful contrast. It highlighted her passion for design, and creating unique artwork. Overall, her talk was bright, bold and sassy, and showed her to be a real breath of fresh air. I look forward to hearing what she has to say next.”

“I just wanted to thank you again for agreeing to be part of our Home Grown Day.
I have received some very positive feedback from participants, not only on the whole event but specifically on your talk.”

E-Squared: Nine Do-It-Yourself Energy Experiments That Prove Your Thoughts Create Your Reality

The Superhero Principle – e2

Your Thoughts & Consciousness Impact Matter:
Recently I conducted an experiment from the book I’m reading e2 with the help of my Dad.
I have attached the experiment info, but what I did was will the beans on the LEFT side of the carton to grow quicker than the right.
The more energy aimed at the beans on the left apparently the quicker they will grow.
“With my innate energy, I will that the beans on the left side of the egg carton grow faster than the beans on the right!”

The results and what I learn’t:

IMG_3487

Two beans sprouted on the left and only one on the right (on day eight, three beans had sprouted on the left and still only one on the right). So which side grew more?

Well the left grew more, as we were focusing on the left, but they were supposed to grow the tallest so really the right won this experiment.

Then I looked at my rules again “With my innate energy, I will that the beans on the left side of the egg carton grow faster than the beans on the right! … is not two beans faster than one?
I now realise it doesn’t say anything about height …. ha ha science always setting quantum lessons to figure out!

Perception is everything, how we see things in our mind may not be how they really are. We may stress ourselves out for no reason at all because of our mind and it’s beliefs.
Look at something from a different angle or perception and it could be a complete SUCCESS!!! Like my Beans on the LEFT!!

You Can Heal Your Life – by Louise Hay

You Can Heal Your Life - by Louise HayI have finally found what I would call my BIBLE!

…. something that makes clear and concise spiritual and life sense to me! Finally!

Beginning my spiritual journey over five years ago, when I finally realised I can make choices and changes in my life, I had heard of Louise Hay but never picked up her books.

OMG her philosophy based on forgiving your past, reprogramming our negative and self destructive though patterns and learning to love ourselves is universal to every human being!

We are each responsible for all of our experiences.
Every thought we think is creating our future.
The point of power is always in the present moment.
Everyone suffers from self-hatred and guilt.
The bottom line for everyone is,
“I’m not good enough.”
It’s only a thought, and a thought can be changed.
We create every so-called illness in our body.
Resentment, criticism and guilt are the most damaging patterns.
Releasing resentment will dissolve even cancer.
When we really love ourselves, everything in our life works.
We must release the past and forgive everyone.
We must be willing to begin to learn to love ourselves.
Self-approval and self-acceptance in the now are the key to positive changes.
When we really love ourselves, everything in our life works.

I have been learning abit about Buddhist meditation but feel being brought up Catholic and finding that too constricting in my life I don’t really want to take on another religion at this stage plus focusing on different breathing patterns and counting colours associated with calm abiding meditation was not especially what I was looking for. But I agree with Louise’s comments on meditation and think I will give that ago:

Meditation in any of its forms is a wonderful way to quiet the mind and allow your own “knowingness” to come to the surface. I usually just sit with my eyes closed and say, “What is it I need to know?” and then I wait quietly for an answer. If the answer comes, fine; if it doesn’t, fine. It will come another day.

This is another concept I like and see a lot of people struggling with:

So many of us feel that money is the most important thing in our lives and that we could not live without it. This is not true…. Our breath is the most precious substance in our lives and yet we totally take for granted that our next breath will be there. If we did not take another breath, we would not last three minutes. Now if the Power that created us has given us enough breath to last for as long as we shall live, can we not trust that everything else we need will also be supplied?

Being brought up Catholic and taught as a child that sex before marriage is a sin, I also absolutely love this philosophy now that I am free to chose what I believe is right for my body and values…

Who told you to deny any part of your body? Certainly not God. Our sexual organs were created as the most pleasurable part of our body to give us pleasure. To deny this is to create pain and punishment. Sex is okay, it is glorious and wonderful. It is as normal for us to have sex as it is for us to breathe or eat.

You Can Heal Your Life - by Louise HayJust for a moment try to visualise the vastness of the Universe. It is beyond our comprehension. Even our top scientists with their latest equipment cannot measure its size. Within this Universe there are many galaxies.

In one of these smaller galaxies in a far-off corner, there is a minor sun. Around this sun a few pinpoints revolve, one of which is called Planet Earth.

I find it hard to believe that the vast, incredible intelligence that created this entire Universe is only an old man sitting on a cloud above Planet Earth … watching my genitals!

This book is also amazingly illustrated by Joan Perrin Falquet!
I thrive on colour and this version of the book is full of it, creating a positive happy vibe.

Reading this book feels to me like what I think winning the Lottery would feel like!!!!
I hope you feel the same when you read it! x
Don’t delay like I did!

Thank you Louise, all my love Jeanette xoxo

Deepak @ QPAC

“When you change the way you look at something, what you are looking at will change.” – Deepak Chopra

Last night I went to listen to Deepak Chopra at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC). What an intelligent, amusing and insightful man with a profound understanding of the universe. (Deepak Chopra is one of Oprah’s spiritual mentors)

Here are a few things I learned:
–       Our body’s our subconscious mind
–       The mind is in all cells of the body not the brain
–       Your body is in your mind which is a larger field of consciousness
–       The human body is not a structure it’s a process
–       In one year all atoms in our body are replaced – therefore the Deepac talking to me was not the same Deepac who visited Australia a year ago
–       The physical body is the recycling of earth, water and air
–       Our experience of the world is based on vibration
–       All thoughts are either choices or interpretations of past or future
–       Why can’t you be found in your body? Because you are not there, you are not in it. The body is in you.
–       Everything is a vibration.
–       Void is infinite possibilities, immeasurable potential

–       The Science of happiness; find happiness first then you will have happiness in relationships, finance, health etc. … don’t look for these things to make you happy.

–       Happiness Formula; H = S + C + V
Happiness equals Self Point in the brain plus Conditions of Living plus Voluntary Actions.

SELF POINT is determined in childhood; the first 3 year of our life. This is 50% of our happiness experience. You can change your self point through meditation.
CONDITION OF LIVING is what’s happening around you. 10%
VOLUNTARY ACTIONS, what we do every day. 40%

–       Are our choices for ourselves or do they make others happy?
–       Love is the ultimate truth. Love is God. Love awakens the soul.
–       There is no difference between you and the whole of the universe
–       The world is as we are
–       Have all the time in the world!

–       Our brain:
Right Hemisphere – works in the present moment, right here, right now. Looks, tastes, smells, sounds and feels.
Left Hemisphere – works in the past and future. Thinks in language, ongoing brain chatter.

–       Short daily MEDITATION (start with 10mins)

  1. Put your attention to the heart and say to yourself, “Who am I?”and see what comes up, if you drift away just come back to the question, “Who am I?”. Now ask yourself ‘What do I want?”
  2. Gratitude – Now be thankful for all the good in your life
  3. Now repeat, ‘I AM” to yourself for as long as you like (10 mins minimum)
    Put your attention on your body, feeling each body part, cell and atom to be light, white and sparkling

–       TOTAL WELL BEING

  1. SOCIAL; our moods, emotions, energy and information is contagious!
  2. PHYSICAL; sleep, yoga, exercise
  3. COMMUNITY; Share a cause
  4. CAREER; Use your strengths
  5. FINANCIAL: Don’t buy things to impress people. Spend money on experience & happy memories. The more you give the more you have.

Take the VOW – for well being!

This experience with Deepak has me on such a high! There is so much to learn and hearing his concepts makes me even more excited about the infinite possibilities in all aspects of my life!!!! I have so many new ideas and concepts to practise and put in place.

Some History; Hervey Bay Public Library

Some History; Hervey Bay Public LibraryThe Hervey Bay Public Library was the result of community demand and positive input by the Hervey Bay Cultural and Library Council and a City Librarian, Mrs Sandra Maynes (my Mother) was appointed and commenced work in May 1977. Her role was to assist in the establishment of the Hervey Bay Public Library which opened on the 6th July 1978. Therefore my family relocated from Townsville to beautiful Hervey Bay.

Mrs Sandra Maynes was appointed Librarian and the Council is very fortunate in having such a capable and experience Librarian as Mrs Maynes to establish the library, encouraged by the town clerk and his staff with the full support of the Council.

Mrs Maynes commenced duties on the 2nd May 1978 after all the alterations were done and proceeded with due haste to obtain shelving, books carpets and furnishing and it does credit to her what has been achieved in two months.
[Info via the Commemorative Brochure from the Opening of the Hervey Bay Public Library – 6th July 1978]

1978 [Population 11,000] – The first Public Library was located in three rooms upstairs in the Council Chambers in Bideford St Torquay.

Some History; Hervey Bay Public Library1979 – The Public Library moved to three leased shops in Turo Street, Torquay. Two extra shops were acquired and the corridor enclosed during the next three years.

1985 [Population 18,800] – The Public Library relocated to the Pialba business area in Main St. where it continued to grow.

1996 the Hervey Bay City Council commenced a partnership with the University of Southern Queensland and on the 1st of March 1997 the Hervey Bay Public Library opened its doors at 161 Old Maryborough Rd in a spacious facility of 1306m2 which housed the first joint use Community / University Library Collection in Australia. The library staff assisted in establishing the first Regional Public Art Gallery in the Wide Bay area which is also located in the library facility.

2003 [Population 45,959] – 51% of Hervey Bays Population are enrolled at the library.

Mrs Sandra Maynes was the Chief Librarian from 1978 – 1996. She has worked at both the Hervey Bay & Maryborough Libraries and currently still works part time …. (Good Stuff Mum, Very Proud of You!)

A New Earth – Eckhart Tolle

A New Earth – Eckhart TolleI have now finished reading A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle, the 6 million copy worldwide best seller book that I hope will sell over 100 million copies!
(That would be nice for Eckhart!)

What an intuitive, perceptive and enlightening book on how the masses think in an unconscious way creating their own depression based on their own ego. Living their life in a negative manner by constantly complaining, stressing, hurting  / demeaning others and seeking drama in their own lives as they believe this brings them attention / acceptance, makes them feel important  which they need to fuel on their ego.A New Earth – Eckhart Tolle These people are blind not realising they are creating for themselves and those around them more negativity, drama, unhappiness and depression and continue to live a mundane existence being that of a repetitive self destructive cycle.

This book helps you realise how to live your life with true openness and freedom, find out who you really are, by being present through living you life in the now. Stop searching for happiness in the future and material objects, or in recognition / approval from others; true happiness is already within YOU and can be found every day by being conscious in your thoughts, actions and precious timeless moments.

This book is a must read, it’s time to become more awakened!!!

Building on the astonishing success of The Power of Now, Eckhart Tolle presents readers with an honest look at the current state of humanity: He implores us to see and accept that this state, which is based on an erroneous identification with the egoic mind, is one of dangerous insanity.

Tolle tells us there is good news, however. There is an alternative to this potentially dire situation. Humanity now, perhaps more than in any previous time, has an opportunity to create a new, saner, more loving world. This will involve a radical inner leap from the current egoic consciousness to an entirely new one.

The Power of Now’ Eckhart Tolle. Are you ready to be awakened?

My latest read; ‘The Power of Now‘ by Eckhart Tolle.

The Power of Now' Eckhart TolleWhat an extraordinary book by an inspiring, exceptionally wise and intelligent author!

This is a truly amazing book and has been recommended to me at the perfect stage of my journey, thanks Jamie. This book clarifies what I have been experiencing in my mind for the last three and a half years, an awakened consciousness. Repetitive thought, negativity, one’s conditioning and sense of self derived from the past no longer controls my life, emotions or actions, I do.

I have just started reading A new Earth and have also bought Stillness Speaks and Practicing the Power of Now. All these books are essential reading for spirituality and living your best life! There is always so much more to learn, grasp and put into practice… especially to live in the Now!

The Power of Now' Eckhart TolleThe Power of Now has been widely recognized as one of the most influential spiritual books of our time. A #1 New York Times bestseller, it has been translated into over 30 languages. The book has helped countless people around the globe awaken to the spiritual dimension in their lives, find inner peace, increased joy and more harmonious relationships.

To make the journey into The Power of Now we will need to leave our analytical mind and its false created self, the ego, behind….

ARE YOU READY TO BE AWAKENED?

When you are present in this moment, you break the continuity of your story, of past and future.
Then true intelligence arises, and also love.
The only way love can come into your life is not through form, but through that inner spaciousness that is Presence.
Love has no form.
