of your own thoughts, feelings, and beliefs
to become even better at attracting prosperity!
There is a connection between the things you think and the things you experience.
There is a way to feel better and infuse your daily life with more joy. The trick is to pause periodically to feel gratitude.
Notice that I said feel gratitude. It’s the visceral, physical sensation of feeling gratitude that signals the universe.
But sometimes, during our busy everyday lives, it’s oddly challenging to drop into an actual feeling. We have a tendency to intellectualize gratitude. And that’s okay. Start there, if you need to.
After you think about something for which you can feel grateful, then move past the idea of it, into the actual emotion itself.
I like to imagine my body is getting lighter, and that my heart is floating up like helium and radiating playfulness and love. Heck, sometimes I even throw my hands up over my head in celebration! Judge me if you will but I’m telling you, it works for me.
In this modern chaotic world, we have to sometimes take innovative measures in order to find our center and remember who we really are — measures that perhaps were not as necessary for humans living millennia ago for whom nature was integrated into every moment of their daily lives! Over the last 200 years our environment has changed outrageously. But — and it’s a big but — our human physiology remains comparatively unaltered, so in a sense we haven’t yet physically developed the coping skills to deal with all the noise, distractions, and craziness.
The problem with the rat race is that it has a tendency to be detrimental to our physical health and to our relationships. This is especially true for those of us over the age of 40. In a sense, everyone in the developed nations over age 40 has the same challenge: how to age successfully, gracefully, and with nobility. That is, how to enjoy increased prosperity while at the same time improving our physical health and deepening our relationships.
Anyone who has ever lost a friend or loved-one too young to cancer knows that if you keep putting your health and your relationships off until tomorrow, you will live — or die — to regret it. I realize that’s an intense thing to say, and it’s hard to say delicately. Fortunately, there are solutions. In fact, I compiled solutions into a new book, The Numinous Journey — the book is just one of five items in the new Longevity Lifestyle Kit.
By utilizing principles of Success Psychology, the Longevity Lifestyle Kit ensures that your new, positive habits will “stick” (instead of having you start out with good intentions and then falling back into the same old habits).
The Numinous Journey:
How to Age Successfully ~ eBook, $8.95
“…The Numinous Journey is a well-written book
that thoughtfully merges ideas from psychology, spirituality,
and taking care of our physical bodies.
This is an incredible resource for anyone over 40
seeking to take control of their life and live with purpose and happiness.
If you want to teach an old dog (yourself) new tricks, THIS is the place to start!”
~ Paul Newton, corporate sales account manager
This will help motivate you to tailor a successful self-improvement strategy that is a uniquely good fit for you.
“The Numinous Journey really spoke to me.
Definitely a book to read to get you to think about why and how people live their lives.
I identified with being on auto-pilot;
I already knew this but had not fully admitted why this was bad for me in the longer term.
It also made me think about how how people really engage (or fail to engage) in conversations
as well as how I can take baby steps to make my life more fulfilling”
~ Nicky Hirst, Marketing Manager
The final section of The Numinous Journey helps you to crystalize everything you’ve learned about yourself and hold dear, and then utilize this new awareness into creating a life map — a map that will help you to navigate this next phase of your life, so that your journey is passionate, joyful, and rich with meaning and purpose. This next phase of your life can be your most fascinating yet!
“…the opening chapters of The Numinous Journey are so powerful, I defy anyone truly interested in self-improvement to read no further! Compelling and wise, without thinking that you have just been put straight and told off!
Dane complements his prose with those influential in both western and eastern philosophy, providing the reader with a wonderfully balanced view — sage advice and quotes that inspire and enlighten!
Chapter 6 is so vital. In discussing our eternal desires for that which lies outside of us, Dane reinforces the ancient philosophy: ‘all that we seek is within us.’
Chapter 7 reminds us of the foolishness of waiting to live, really live, until… until what? It is a sad indictment that so many start to live only when faced with a life-limiting illness!
Chapter 8 is about finding true inner peace. Mindfulness and meditation is no dark art. All that you seek is here. Priceless!
The closing chapters are a firestorm of brilliant advice and tips to (kindly) hammer home major — yet achievable — goals that will introduce you to paradigm shifts in family life, work-life and performance. The formula for creating meaningful, positive change is here …and it makes sense!
Being a man in his late 40s, I feel so fortunate to have read The Numinous Journey. As a psychotherapist I help others to walk their emotional fires — as I also walk my own — and this book could hardly have arrived at a better time!
~ Bob Brotchie, Anglia Counselling
If my method for feeing gratitude is too corny for you, then try this: imagine for a moment that the universe is an infinite field of intelligence, creativity and compassion that is automatically configured to give you more of what you’re habitually focused upon.
For example, everyone has secret beliefs about money. A person’s relationship with the energy system that is “money” creates a vibrational field. This means that whenever you have a thought or feeling about money, the universe is eavesdropping! When it hears a repeating pattern in your thoughts about money, it sends you an experience to help you validate that habitual thought:
This is why it becomes important to periodically monitor our own inner “mind chatter.” Some afternoon when you’re busy-as-usual, if you were to turn-off your phone and sit down for ten minutes of quiet meditation, you could objectively listen to your mind as it prattles away.
This process of objective inner-listening might seem at first like a waste of time, but you’ll soon discover that it’s one of the most productive things you can do!
As you get better at witnessing your own mind-chatter objectively (“watching the watcher” it is sometimes called), you will soon be able to recognize differences and label specific segments of the chatter: “oh, that’s a thought” “oh, that’s a feeling” “oh, that’s a belief.”
People who meditate regularly are able eventually to be even more specific when identifying the chatter that plays inside their mind: “oh, that’s a judgement” “oh, that’s the emotion of shame” “oh, that’s sadness” “oh, that’s anxiety.”
And, the more consistently a person meditates, the more he or she is able to sustain moments when there is no mind chatter at all, just an abiding calm and inner peace. Dr. Wayne Dyer has called this “the gap,” and has often said that one second in the gap is worth more than an hour of sleep, and that you can get the equivalent of a full night’s sleep by spending a few moments in the gap — that’s how restorative it is!
I suppose you can also get rich by being bombastic, ruthless or exploitive (plenty of people get rich that way) but those people tend to have bad health, disappointing life reviews, and — perhaps most signficant — only a shallow kind of happiness. I’m assuming you want to feel the kind of soulful, boundless, vibrant joy that improves your own health and also touches the people around you, making a positive difference in the world.
As your thoughts become habitually more positive and joyful, you’ll develop a sort of momentum. Good things could start to happen with greater frequency. This occurs because of relationships. As you become a brighter person, you’ll attract a brighter circle of people into your daily life. The more joyful people you know, the more prosperity you will experience.
Included within the Longevity Lifestyle Kit is a companion guide that provides you with a fun and fascinating experiment to help you assess the current quality of your tribe.

This booklet is very hands-on, specific and logical. After the first reading, you might feel that the content is obvious and common sense. And it is! Things become obvious and common sense once someone puts them in the right order and presents them pedagogically.
The list of “questions to ask” provides solid grounding and opens your mind to reflect. I read that part several times to see if it fits my situation and life. After a while I realized that the questions got me thinking in the right direction. This is a great effect of this booklet. It helps you to reflect over your tribe. What more can be done? How can I expand? How can I contribute even more and better?
Do the exercises, even if your first reaction is not to. The effect after doing that is mind-blowing. Regardless of your tribe being super small or metropolitan. You need to see it on paper.

By the way, to me “prosperity” means more than money. In fact, money is just one expression of the energy system that is prosperity. I experience prosperity most deeply as excellent health. I feel strongly that when a person has excellent health, they enjoy the ultimate abundance — because with robust perfect health almost anything is possible. The world is your oyster, as the saying goes!

True Prosperity Is a Matter of Good Vibrations
The solitude of early-morning often provides ideal opportunities for self-reflection and honest evaluation.
During a recent thirty-day experiment of waking and rising at 4:15 a.m., I was able to experience those quiet moments and give my mind a chance to clear and to focus — a somewhat uncommon feat in this age of multi-tasking and instant media! This this one reason I continue to believe in the importance of looking objectively at our everyday rituals and habits.
One concept that my mind kept returning to, was the vast power each of us has to set the tone of our own lives — to wield greater influence in the experiences we have.
What my life’s experiences have taught me so far is that the energy we put forth is not only absorbed by others, but it is also reflected back to us.
Unlocking the Key to Limitless Success
The key to enjoying your life is to tend to your inner world as if it were a garden.
As Mister Rogers liked to ask, “what are you growing in the garden of your mind?”
At least twice a day, intentionally take your self off of autopilot mode by returning mindfully to the sensation on your own breath. Release judgment and cultivate gratitude. Then, allow yourself to feel the actual physical sensation of gratitude inside your body (you will feel your heart lighten, a joy-rising). This will absolutely change your vibrational field.
You can shape these vibrations into strong self-perpetuating loops, often referred to as winning-streaks, good habits, symbiosis, or being “on a roll.”
“…it can be so beneficial
to take time regularly
to explore and adjust the feelings and mindset
that we are cultivating within ourselves”
Generally, the energy of prosperity — and, again, I include good health within the definition of the word prosperity — is not strongly pulled to a person’s ambivalent thoughts.
The energy systems of money and health are powerfully attracted to feelings of joy and enthusiasm (this is another reason that mornings can be a perfect time to celebrate your successes)!
(By the way, this great manifesting power can also develop into negative patterns as well — resulting in frustration, fatigue or general malaise. So, be mindful.)
It can be so beneficial to take time regularly to explore and adjust the feelings and mindset that we are cultivating inside of ourselves.
Tending to our mind in this way improves our thoughts and feelings — and even our beliefs — giving us a more positive outlook, which in turn raises the frequency of those vibrations we emanate, which then attracts a better set of circumstances. The higher our vibrations, the better quality of people we attract into our lives.
You don’t have to get up before the sun to keep tabs on your vibrations, but I do encourage you to set aside time — daily, if possible — for repose and reflection.
