manifestingSecretsLogoWith ‘Ice Man’ Wim Hof

Recently I set off to Amsterdam with my business partner, Niraj Naik (aka the Renegade Pharmacist) to film, interview and learn from ‘Ice Man’ Wim Hof…

We ended up recording a song and making new friends!

Sometimes its called luck, sometimes it’s called manifesting or the Law of Attraction, other times it’s referred to as synchronicity or syncrodyestiny, in fact there are many names for ‘it’

But what you want to know is how to effortlessly tune your mind into ‘it’ to give you a richer and more abundant life right!

Turns Out There Are FOUR Simple Things You Can Do That Will Dramatically Increase Your ‘Luck’

After the interview, while filming a quick intro to the training we were about to do, Niraj walked in the room talking about how excited he was to be actually training with Wim Hof… Wim, always ‘in the moment’, started strumming his guitar, upbeat, lively and singing in various acrobatic vocal styles…

Wim’s vocal power and effortless style of guitar stopped us in our tracks.

It’s true we had flown to the Netherlands to meet Wim Hof, interview him about his amazing abilities to control his autonomic system and train with him… now however our attention was fixed on the idea of recording a song!

“Go with the flow”

The interview opportunity has turned into something much bigger…

Opportunity Spotted. Opportunity Taken!

We postponed our flights home and made a date to visit Wim. We met again on Sunday in his Summer house to record ‘Crazy like a Monkey’, the ‘Ice Man’s first song!

The message at the core of Wim’s work is one of freedom, we can be, see and do more than we think we can.

Over 100 years ago New Thought author Wallace Wattles wrote of a little boy in his work:
“The music in him was the URGE of Original Substance, containing all the possibilities of all life; all that there is of music was seeking expression through the child.”

This is basically a description of the universe flowing through you.

Psychologists call it ‘Being in the Flow State’, Musicians call it ‘Being in the Groove’, athletes call it ‘Being in the Zone’, it’s pure creativity…

Wim is almost permanently in the ‘Flow State’. That effortless state of being where everything just happens, where everything is easy, going your way and where anything is possible.

Without being in that state the full marathon Wim ran bare foot in the arctic circle dressed in just shorts in temperatures of -20 C just wouldn’t be possible.

Ice Man Wim Hof is a Super Human!

It’s because he lives in this flow state of opportunity where everything is possible. Wim Hof is a Dutch world record holder (of over 20 Guinness world records), adventure and trail blazer for the new millennium.

Wim demonstrates an ability to control his autonomic system that has doctors and scientist baffled. He has developed an ability to turn up his own thermostat by using the power of his mind.

Once seen as a super-man, Wim has shared his secrets with others (The Wim Hof Method), giving them the same abilities to control their heart rate, body temperature, blood pressure and more. Automatic functions that were previously though beyond conscious control.

So What Does this Have to Do with Manifesting the Life of Your Dreams?

Whether you call it luck, being in the flow state or manifesting, one thing is true:

“Lucky people are skilled at creating, noticing and acting upon chance opportunities”
Professor Richard Wiseman.

The findings of Professor Wiseman’s 10 year study into luck are that luck is actually a skill that can be learnt, by anyone!

Just days after returning home from Amsterdam, I met my friend Dr Steven Simpson. Steven has been working with sports people and athletes for years, getting them ‘in the zone’. But now he’s working with professional poker players and increasing their luck!

Yes they are winning more. Winning more often and more money! Crazy Right?

This was at an event we were both working at with Paul McKenna PhD who told us about his recent findings about luck and even showed us his latest psy-tech exercise for actually boosting your luck and spotting opportunities (More on that another day…)

Talk about Synchronicities!

Keeping Your Eyes Open to Opportunity is Wiseman’s #1 Principal for Boosting your Luck.

During my first meeting with Wim the thing that struck me most about him (apart from his energy levels and enthusiasm for life that are through the roof), were the number of projects he is effortlessly manifesting and involved in. From his Garden of Eden project in Africa, to the wonderland he’s creating in Amsterdam or simply inspiring people on stage to become more.

Again Wim beautifully demonstrates the Second Principle of being luckier and attracting more of what you want into life: Trusting Your Intuition.

WimBallance“Over time, we, as humans have developed a different attitude towards nature around us and we actually forgot one thing, Inner Power.”

Wim Learned his methods by going into nature and trusting his intuition.

The Third Principle is: The Power of Expectation.

Wim was asked if he could run a marathon barefoot in the Arctic Circle or without water in the desert, or climb Mount Everest in just shorts, his response to the challenges a resounding ‘Yes’.

Because he knew he could do these things, he ‘expected’ that he would just do it. It’s as if it’s already done! "I know my body, I know my mind, I know what I can do.”

After passing the death zone barrier of 23,000 (7,400 meters) feet above sea level in shorts and sandals Wim suffered frostbite… Did that stop him? Hell No! Wim is a powerful force for positive change, demonstrating Principle Four: Making Good Luck Out of Misfortune.

The Principles that ‘lucky people' who manifest amazing opportunities in life are:

  • Keep Your Eyes Open to Opportunity
  • Trusting Your Intuition
  • Using the Power of Expectation (It’s already Done!)
  • Making Good Luck out of Misfortune (Seeing the 'Golden Lining')

As I am writing this Wim is ‘lucky’ enough to be in California teaching his method to record producer Rick Ruben, comedian & podcaster Joe Rogan and hanging out with celebrities like Sacha Baron Cohen and Orlando Bloom… before heading off to climb a mountain on a different continent . . .

So you want to know a bit more about me… Well, it’s been four decades since I arrived here on planet Earth and has been an interesting journey so far…

The Interesting Thing About Luck...

Professor Richard Wiseman, gave two groups of people who described themselves as lucky and unlucky a newspaper and asked them to look through it and count how many photographs were inside. 

On average the unlucky people took about two minutes to count the photographs, whereas the lucky people took just seconds. Why? Because the second page of the newspaper contained the message: "Stop counting. There are 43 photographs in this newspaper." This message took up half of the page and was written in type that was more than 2in high. It was staring everyone straight in the face, but the unlucky people tended to miss it and the lucky people tended to spot it.

He also placed a second large message halfway through the newspaper saying: "Stop counting. Tell the experimenter you have seen this and win £250." Again, the unlucky people didn’t have their Eyes Open to Opportunity missed it because they were still too busy looking for photographs.
