====== WHAT TO EXPECT ======

I wrote my short ebook, Powerful Self Healing in 5 Simple Steps in order to help remind others that achieving a happy and healthy life isn't as hard as we've come to believe. To make it even easier, I created this video-based version of the ebook to further emphasize the message and to lend a helping hand to those who are willing to take that first step - but aren't quite sure which one to take!

The chances are you've heard of some (if not all) of the steps, but weren't interested, never 'saw it through' or lacked the motivation to implement them into your life.  But now, with the information simplified down and explained in a way that can be easily integrated into your existing life - those 5 simple, yet different steps will - when combined - become a tour de force for your life.

I absolutely love the fact that you don't need any previous healing experience to learn these simple techniques and you don't need anymore time in your day - you just need the desire to improve, and the rest will be easy! What's more, this course is self-paced and completely digital, so you can go as slowly or as quickly as you like. 

Please note that this is not an intricately 'in-depth' course on health and happiness, it's a course to help open your eyes to see who you truly are and to remember that you do have the power to improve your life!

====== WHAT'S INCLUDED ======

The course covers loving yourself, taking care of your body, moving your body, resting your mind and self healing. Perhaps there's a little tip or suggestion somewhere in this course that can make all the difference in your life! And since this course is free, it's all upside for you my friend!

Once enrolled, just download the ebook, written by Melissa: Powerful Self Healing in 5 Simple Steps (PDF). The book is short and an easy read - so make sure you download it to reference offline or anytime you need!

What's more, I provide my 5 Minute Guided Meditation (via lecture and MP3 download) to help you relax in stressful times - when needed; as well as links to some of my blogs/podcasts which cover topics that can further assist you in your journey!

Once you've gone through all the lectures and completed any 'exercises' when prompted, you'll be able to see how easy it is to inject healthy improvements into your existing routine!  

Some of the additional benefits you may receive from taking this course include being able to finally love yourself for who you truly are, become more physically healthy, become more centred and calm, achieve an overall happier state of being which can attract abundance of all forms into your life - and much more! 

Lastly, whenever I add more helpful information to this course, you'll have instant and lifetime access to it! Enjoy the journey! #biglove

Created by Colin Bradley School of Art - Pastel Pencil Artist and Teacher

"]

Students: 28665, Price: Free

Hi my name is Colin Bradley, 

I believe that everyone would like to draw. Not just draw but draw accurately, they’d love to copy their own photographs and create beautiful pieces of art. 

In the Victorian times, artist’s gridded out their drawings to ensure they had correct proportions and perspectives. A number of years ago I needed to do the same and created my own product - the square drawing grids. 

These have helped me time again to create accurate outline drawings that I use with Pastel Pencils and other mediums.  I began selling these grids 20 years ago and since then thousands of students all over the world have found success. 

In this course I will show you how to use our grids or any other gridded system to create precise and accurate outline drawings from your own photos.

I will show you 3 examples, a portrait, an animal and a landscape. I will also show you how you can use the grids to scale up your pictures, especially useful if you are working from a smaller photo.

When using the grids, you will not only understand perspective and proportioning out, but you will improve your free hand ability. 

This course is free and we encourage you to give this method of drawing a go. 

______________

In this course you will learn how to use the Square Drawing Grids to copy you own pictures accurately. 

You will learn how to overlay smaller grids to replicate fine detail in eyes and buildings.

Using the Square Drawing System teaches you about perspective, proportions and creates the muscle memory for drawing free-hand.

In this course Colin shows you how to use the Square Drawing System for:

  • Drawing Portraits
  • Drawing Animals
  • Drawing Landscapes
  • Scaling up your drawings
  • Transferring your drawings using a graphite carbon

DO NOT subscribe if you

- just want a few short techniques, but you don't want to change anything about yourself

- you feel you are too advanced for a beginner's course

- are not really interested

- are not open 

- think "Let's get to the hypnosis part quick" without wanting to understand why and how you should use it for achieving a lasting change

- you have very narrow and strict expectations of how things should be and it makes you frustrated if things turn out to be different (the subconscious often goes against our expectations, so openness is an absolute prerequisite)

- want instant solutions without investing the time and effort

- are not committed to making a positive change in your thinking

- don't want to know what to use meditation techniques for

- don't want to get a broader view of the spiritual laws

- prefer to blame others instead of being ready for a change

- only want to scratch the surface

I'm not here to participate in a "Let's collect the most subscribers" contest.

If you like to think that life is as simple as that, then this course won't help you.

This course is about changing ourselves and thus changing our lives, working on our limiting beliefs, setting smart goals, taking responsibility to get the control back from our negative subconscious programming.

It requires work. 

It requires commitment. 

It requires taking the responsibility.

It is not a lightning fast method, but a sure one to start living the life that you were born to live.

You get this for free, but it does not mean it is not very valuable information.

So only subscribe if you are ready to do meaningful work on yourself.

  1. Several hours of video training
  2. A BONUS Success Training with Self-hypnosis
  3. Downloadable meditation audios you can take with you
  4. An exercise book in pdf

Simply hearing about these things is nothing but a pile of
information for you, but I want that my students to EXPERIENCE the
things they learn about. This is what turns information into KNOWLEDGE.
That’s why I’m including practical, self-hypnosis exercises in my
material. I think it is very important that you LIVE WHAT YOU LEARN, and
not just passively listen to it. This creates deeper understanding,
knowledge, and awareness. And that is already the first step towards
turning tedious everyday life into a miraculous creation.

I will guide you step-by-step through the phases of

  • Taking RESPONSIBILITY for your life not just intellectually,
    but deep from your heart. (If you are already aware of your
    responsibility, it’s wonderful. The material helps you gain a further
    insight into the process of how you create your reality and to map out
    if there are parts left, where you don’t take full responsibility.)
  • As
    a next step I’ll help you to make the DECISION intellectually,
    emotionally and spiritually, whether to make a fundamental change or not
    and what does this imply
  • Step 3. I will help you to set the right OBJECTIVES.
  • Then you will learn the SKILLS you need to boost your power to act

This is a lot to do, but take the toddler-approach to learning:
just think of the enthusiasm and fun they have learning to walk, even
though at that phase it’s a HUGE accomplishment! And they do it
laughing!

As a transforming hypnotist, I live what I teach. 

Hypnosis has literally changed my life and me at my very core and if there was
something worth learning, then it was to understand my subconscious,
learn to communicate and cooperate with it. It was a wonderful gift!!! 

And I want to share it with you! 

What inspires me to do these courses is to help people, like you learn the skills, which enable them
to use their inner power, wisdom, and motivation.

I help them to connect with their inner self, to become spiritually independent so
that they no longer need gurus or constant assistance and guidance. All
they need is within themselves. All they need is to learn to access it.

What do you need?

  • You need an open mind and readiness to change and a desire to experience your potential.


What will you learn?

  • understand how to change your life in positive, beneficial ways
  • how to attract success and abundance
  • take responsibility for your current situation and make a decision for your future
  • set smart and motivating objectives
  • understand the basics of the skills you need to boost your actions
  • connect to your Real, Higher Self
  • improve your awareness
  • understand the trance state through which you have access to your subconscious
  • connect to your subconscious mind
  • understand the basic principles of how the subconscious mind works
  • understand the broader aspects of self-hypnosis
  • use suggestions properly and effectively


Is this course for you?


This course is for you if 

  • you want to improve your life.
  • want to unfold your potential
  • if you feel that there is more to you
  • you have a strong desire for better
  • you want and are ready to experience inner freedom
  • you want to get rid of limiting thoughts, ideas, emotions
  • you feel you should do something with your life, but you DON’T KNOW HOW
  • or you know how to do it, but you feel you CAN’T
  • you tried to change your life, but some fundamental things still STAYED THE SAME
  • you feel that you’re NOT ON THE RIGHT TRACK or simply STUCK IN YOUR LIFE
  • you
    feel that your personal development progresses TOO SLOWLY and you are
    looking for that missing piece that would help you BOOST YOUR
    DEVELOPMENT

So I encourage you to enroll and make this course, but I encourage you even more to start this journey!

I will be there to help and provide you support on your way and I hope that there comes the day when you will no longer need my help. Instead you will be help and inspiration to others!

Do you find that your paintings seldom finish off looking good? Or do you abandon your painting halfway because nothing is looking right? Scraping back the paint in frustration only to abandon the painting is annoying. Not to mention a waste of time and money.

The solution in many cases is what you do even before you begin painting. It is all about the preparation and start where the real outcome is usually determined.

Any professional will tell you that there are a thousand ways to paint your picture and ruin it too. But most agree that getting the painting off to a great start is critical Step One

That is why I decided to create this short course with a focus on the start. This course is based on part of my Learn to Impact Master Course. The latter has much more detail should you want to take your learning to the next level.

The Secret to Your Painting Success will give you much information and practical tips that you can try out now with your next painting. Make that step up in your painting before moving onto more complicated techniques.

You will need the following materials:

  1. The primary colors and white (oils or acrylics)
  2. A canvas or painting panel
  3. Brushes - #6 bristle
  4. Medium or white spirits
  5. Paper towel
  6. Pencil and A5 sketchbook
  7. Black marker pen (thick wedge shaped tip)

I look forward to meeting you on the course!

What will you learn from the course?
In this course, GM Igor Smirnov answers some of the questions received from RCA students

Student 1 : Many players such as myself are club level players who would simply like to reach expert strength rating (2200) or even just rating (2000). Most club level players struggle with creating a schedule for an effective study plan, what to study & how to study.

Student 2 : Number of hours per day spent on each aspect of chess? How and what to train with only 1-2 free hours per week?

Student 3 : How to make steady progress? How to get the best out of chess books, chess software, playing online and puzzles? A course about how someone should analyze his game is very useful.

Student 4 : How to work as best when alone? Many chess players cannot offer themselves the aid of a coach for geographical or financial reasons.
