Occasionally I buy educational and business programs from Nightingale Conant Corporation. I have bought dozens of great programs over the years. They sometimes send invitations to order programs asking me to pay for them only if I think they are worth it. Most of the time I do, and I add value to my library.
So this time I said “yes” to “Install the Blueprint for Success into Every Fiber of Your Being” – a program titled “The One Command – Imprint Your DNA for Lasting Wealth and Happiness” by Asara Lovejoy.
I didn’t make it through the first CD. The author was reading stiffly and too fast for a script that was obviously written, not meant to be spoken. The content was nothing but wordy, trite fluff, paragraph after paragraph of utter nonsense with an occasional kernel of truth.
Yes, I know that negative thoughts are bad. I know that I can induce hypnotic states of mind, open to suggestion and programming. That can be said in a few sentences. I found this program so bad, I could not resist transcribing some of the introduction of the program verbatim here:
Even though I am not seeing you in person, I know that energetically I am connected to you even as you are listening to my words and investigating these portions of intelligence that you may never have even known were available for you to investigate.
Here you’ll discover your own untapped abilities and greater intelligence that is yours, an intelligence that is so magnificent, bright and alive it clamors to be expressed, an intelligence that has solutions to every problem, the power to manifest and create in completely new ways and a presence of untapped self-worth, love and great inspiration of accomplishments.
Here you discover in six easy steps to tap into that intelligence and awaken to your own force for good in your everyday life and in the world.
Here you discover why the simple syntax structure of the one command stops your negative thoughts dead in their tracks and reforms your thoughts, your feelings, your health and even your income simultaneously in moments.
You discover your theta-thinking extraordinary mind as the state place in consciousness where all this untapped potential exists and how you can enter into this state in moments through the six easy steps. And while there in a unified field of theta and in the position of the observer make it all happen with the one command. Here you realize this untapped intelligence that’s always been at your fingertips and while you are ready to meet that success DNA in you right now it is wonderful to know that you have all the elements of success, your greatness and all possibilities and probabilities accomplishing your hopes, wishes, dreams and desires right within you. And not only are you the instrument of your own good, you are the operator of your own success equipment and this program shows you how to operate that equipment in brand new ways.
You’ll discover during the time that we’re together that you become aware of this new operating system for yourself and a presence of self that is in extraordinary fields of consciousness that are yours.
As a matter of fact, we have all come to this moment right now because we have evolved in the collective agreed-upon reality that we can, the new science of observer-created reality from the quantum perspective and the intelligence of your thoughts that affects your beliefs even down to the level of your DNA. From the biologist’s point of view are the two elements of science that support your new wisdom-making method of thought and results.
How much drivel can a person string together before the listener screams: “Enough!!”
But trooper that I am, I stuck with it. Then I got to this section:
How much power does the beta brain wave have? And I can say let’s imagine that it’s equivalent to the Midwestern states, that you have all that range of intelligence in the Midwestern states that you could gather information, get people to help you go ask questions, solve new problems, make your relationships. Now you might think that’s a pretty substantial area to find people and ideas to help you grow your business, solve a financial or emotional problem or to restore your health. But as you lower your brainwaves, your brain waves are measured in electrical charge of Hertz or cycle per second and beta being the fastest at 13 to 30 cycles per second, as you lower your brain waves to a slower speed per second they do something pretty impressive. They expand in their altitude and amplitude and increase in size your capacity in thoughts, solutions and attractions of probable new experiences that you haven’t even have the thought that you might know yet. From the beta to the alpha brain wave of 17 to 13 cycles per second you could say that the altitude and amplitude could reach to the outside of the edge of the planet to the Van Allen Belt, where gravity meets the vacuum of space. Now you can create solutions in your alpha brain waves to any space or direction and receive knowledge directly into your mind from this positioning of open potentiality and that’s substantially a greater sphere of opportunity than in your beta mind. And when you lower your brain wave to theta, 4 to 7 cycles per seconds, now you open to the probabilities throughout all of our known universe through the hundred million million other planetary stars and systems to the outside edge of our galaxy and this is your greater intelligence that is also you.
The nonsense presented here is insulting. So your normal beta brain waves are like the Midwestern states? The alpha waves reach in amplitude to the Van Allen Belt, where gravity meets the vacuum of space? And Theta goes all the way to the outside edge of our galaxy? And a hundred million million planetary stars and systems are in our galaxy – or in our universe?
Nightingale Conant – who checks your facts?
Well, Ms. Lovejoy, there are “only” about a hundred billion stars in our galaxy. There are about a hundred billion galaxies in the universe. I don’t know where your 100 million million (or better expressed: 100 trillion) comes from. But if you use scales to illustrate points, please get the scales right, or you lose all credibility with those of us out here that actually know what wavelengths are, how many stars there are in the universe, and that gravity, the vacuum of space and the edge of the planet have pretty much nothing at all to do with the Van Allen Belt.
Every one of your “scientific” statements after this is suspicious at best.
I think I won’t pay that $70 for this psycho-babble program, and I’ll send it back quickly.
