Maslow – Self-Actualization – Peak Experiences

by Dr. Bobbie Stevens on February 6, 2012

I just finished reading a book entitled Seeing More Colors by Michael S. Lewis, M.D.  This book was given to me by a friend and I shall always cherish it.  Michael Lewis is a truly exceptional photographer.  He has traveled seven continents and brings outstanding pictures of his travels, along with much wisdom which was mostly brought forth by Abraham Maslow, in this book.  Dr. Lewis studied with Dr. Maslow when he was alive.

Abraham Maslow’s works has had a huge influence in my life.  I begin studying Maslow’s works when I was in college and have continued throughout the years.  When I read about Maslow’s studies of self-actualized people I was totally motivated to discover how these abilities could be developed.

I knew that if some people could function from this more advanced level of functioning it had to be a human potential, and there must be a way of developing it in ourselves.  I made a pledge to myself then and there that someday I would discover a way to do that.  I didn’t have a clue as to how to pursue this desire, but fortunately many years later I discovered a process that releases stress and strengthens the entire mind/body system which with daily practice over time leads one into self-actualization.

Maslow provided us with his hierarchy of growth, which shows us how we are all growing toward self-actualization.  This is the goal of personal growth and development and I knew there had to be a way to accelerate this natural growth process.

Fortunately, I had what Maslow calla a peak experience.  He says that “peak experiences are sudden feelings of intense happiness and well-being, with the awareness of an “ultimate truth” and the unity of all things….the experience fills the individual with wonder and awe….she feels at one with the world, and is pleased with it.”

My experience allowed me to see and understand that there are laws of nature or principles of life that govern how we ourselves create our own experiences.  At that time I realized that I had always created my own experiences.  Yet, the exciting part of it was the realization that I could work with these laws of nature to create whatever I wanted to experience in my life.

Since that time I have been creating a perfectly wonderful life for myself.  This doesn’t mean that there are no more challenges in my life.  These challenges keep our lives interesting, but I am no longer concerned about the challenges I know how to handle them and move forward.

At the time I also clearly understood that my purpose in life was to understand what had happened for me and share it with others.  And that is what I have been doing for the last forty years.  I can’t imagine a more fulfilling life than the one I have, and I would love to share with you how you can discover the power and abilities that lie dormant within all of us, that makes it possible for all of us to discover our purpose and how to create whatever we chose for ourselves.

After experimenting with my discovery for several years while I created a very successful business, a beautiful new house furnished with fabulous new furnishings, a great new car, and attracted the perfect man for me to share my life with, I designed a course which has helped thousands of people create the lives they want for themselves.

We now have this course on DVDs so you can experience it in the comfort of your own home. You may get a free introductory session of this course by simply clicking the box found on the side of each page on our web site requesting it.  It helps you to see how you too can take charge of your life and start creating whatever you want rather than simply reacting to what happens to you.

I have also written a book entitled Unlimited Futures: How to Understand the Life You Have and Create the Life You Want.  In this book I describe in detail the process I discovered.  I give you diagrams and step-by-step guidelines for starting to work with this process.  In addition I have also created a Companion Workbook, a DVD which demonstrates the energizers, and a CD of relaxation/visualizations which gives you all the tools for beginning to experience this process.

Once you start experiencing this growth process we also provide courses that you can attend to accelerate this natural evolutionary process.
