Living Consciously

By: Anthony Ayoade (Nigeria)

Knowing enhances self-evolution. I discovered that my inability to live consciously in the past had been caused by ignorance. The more I have a better understanding and new interpretation of spiritual issues which hitherto had not been so clear to me, the more I know the right things to do. The ideas in this book are making me to see more than the obvious; they have transformed my thoughts, beliefs, and emotions to give me a new perspective and shape of my world. Now, I see every creation in a new light. I was not created by accident but for a purpose, so it is my duty to spread the good news of love to the world in my words and actions. I used to cast people out of my life when they didn’t meet my standard, now, I have to work to motivate these companions and foster their greater understanding. I have made up my mind to exercise true fraternity and cooperation with all people I relate with.

The visible rules the invisible, according to one of the ideas I gained in this book. People are being misled by negative forces. Energy of peace can be emitted with strong will to counter any negative attack. I have to consciously pray every single day for leaders and people in every area of life all over the world to make wise decisions. There is chaos everywhere in the world because people do not have inner peace. Praying, and confessing positive words make one transmit positive energies. It is important to have the awareness that we can use the emission of energies defensively to address the forces of darkness in the world.

To the ordinary minds, the existence of extra-physical consciousnesses may seem unreal but conscious minds know that out- of- body experience enhances a profound expansion of the consciousness. If troubled minds have such a reference, the world would become a better place to live. Better thoughts are produced and directed, emotions are controlled, and better choices will be made and destinies will be ordained. Any process that gives 50% of extra-physical lucidity makes a lasting impression in the mind, inevitably generating changes in the person’s lifestyle, personal habits, social and religious activities, and even sleeping and eating habits. It is important for me to make use of these ideas in my life and use them to positively influence others in my words and actions. It is equally important for me to make others have this awareness.

My logical reasoning in the past had supported the fact that it is not reasonable to attribute negativities to the paranormal and evil forces; however, it had been revealed that the invisible directs the visible. It makes me realize that the war against poverty, diseases, ignorance, backwardness, violence, bad leadership in the world is basically mental, and freedom can only come when everyone understands the power of thoughts, beliefs, and emotions. Once the source of a problem is identified, it is half-solved. It is my lot to give enlightenment to those who are still ignorant to empower their thoughts and beliefs to create a new external life for them.

What Our Students Are Saying

Solomon Teshome (Ethiopia)

I dare to say that what I have learned since I joined IIGL is indeed a lot. But I have tried to summarize some of the benefits of the program as much as possible.

The first thing is that because of IIGL I got to realize that having definiteness of purpose is the starting point for great accomplishment. I recognized that having a definite purpose in life is a basis for all kinds of success. While living for years in this planet, I dare to day that I haven’t had a clear purpose which I die for it. As a result, I have experienced a number of inconsistencies in my work as well as in my professional life. It was common for me to give up the effort I have exerted if I got stacked or faced challenges. I would lose my hope simply. But now, as a result of this program, I have come to know that having definiteness of purpose is indispensible to do great work. Because of this I have got back to my inner self where I am listening to my calling that God gave me to accomplish it while living in this planet. Though it is not as clear as I want, currently I am getting to realize my definite purpose. I hope through time the vision would be clear.
The other thing I got to realize is that having definiteness of purpose by itself is not a sufficient condition by to do great things. So, it has to be supported by living by faith.

While reading some of the books, they have reminded of me those fears I have experienced in my life. Their root cause was nothing but the lack of faith in my inherent potential. I have learnt that the fear of failure is something that could be conquered; I am taking bold actions in faith whenever I get the opportunity. As far as the opportunity is in alignment with my purpose, now I don’t want to hold my self back from taking action on it. Now the habit I am coming to develop in this regard is very different. Since recently, when I encountered with fear, what I have read about faith has been clicked in my mind, and then immediately I took action by leaving aside the fear. Now I am developing such habit; in the future I hope fear would be no longer the reason that hinders me back from what I wish to achieve.

I have learnt that through our human endowments of self-awareness, imagination, conscience and independent will, we become conscious of areas of weakness, areas for improvement, areas of talent that could be developed, areas that need to be changed or eliminated from our lives. Then, as we recognize and use our imagination and independent will to act on that awareness- making promises, setting goals, being true to them- we build the strength of character, the being, that makes possible every other positive thing in our lives. Given that, I am taking care of my first creation in my mind first. As everything is connected through invisible threads called energy, my though and action is not limited to myself. Rather it reaches to every person who lives everywhere in the world. Therefore, I have to use my invisible thought to visualize a better, safer, cleaner, more responsible, more loving and more peaceful world.

I have come to know that when I focus on my imagination on the way I wish to be, my conscious mind directs my subconscious mind to accept these new images. In this regard, reflective relearning is a technique that helps us have new picture of ourselves and turn our imagination on the way we want. As a result, I have begun to use reflective relearning to create a new image of myself, reprogramming my automatic creative mechanism to move forward to speak English language fluently. I am being trained myself in my new image by reminding myself several times a day that I am in the process of replacing my old habit.

I have learned that taking responsibility and initiative to do things for my own sake is vital, rather than waiting for some other person to do my work. No matter what the effort is small, I have to seize that opportunity and discharge my responsible to the maximum. Now I begun to appreciate every encounter in my life and tried to turn them around. Rather than blaming and pointing my figure on others, I have started to look for any task for which I have a total influence and begun to act upon them. Time to time I have come to expand my area of influences which take me forward.

I now understand that any failure or pain which I have experienced through out my life is the language through which nature speaks to me, pointing out mistakes. The program taught me that adversity breads opportunity, every setback carries with it an even greater opportunity, and every curse has a corresponding blessing. As a result, I have begun to assess the root cause of my failures of the past and started to tackle some of them.
From my experience, there were times I focused only on my immediate problems and urgent demands while forgetting the possibilities and opportunities placed ahead of me.

Contrary to this, I would often overlook the opportunities at hand and wait for until the opportunities turned up. However, because of this program, I have learned to pay attention to anything I have at hand and at the same time for opportunities of the future. I have come to appreciating rather than complaining.
The other most important thing I have learned in the program is about rest. Our body and mind needs rest to rebuild themselves and get back what they have lost. It is through rest and relaxation both can recharge themselves. I want to become a well-balanced person therefore I usually make sure that my energy is recharged to the extent that my strength and vitality are developed.

To sum up, I am becoming a person who emits positive energy, knows his core purpose, looks for the sunny side of life, sets goals for every aspects of life, and in general a person who elevate his life by conscious endeavor. Through a series of such disciplines- mental, emotional and moral and mental imagination- I begun to exercise my small, embryonic freedom until it grew larger and larger.

Using cutting-edge research conducted at Princeton,MIT, Stanford, and many other prestigious universities and laboratories, The Intention Experiment reveals that the universe is connected by a vast quantum energy field. Thought generates its own palpable energy, which you can use to improve your life and, when harnessed together with an interconnected group, to change the world.

Students In Action

Sayid Abdullaev (Kyrgyzstan) Participates at the UNESCO Summit in Thailand

“Keep your dreams alive, as you are bound to them” were opening
remarks of Dr. Amii Omara Otunnu to the group of 90 global young human
rights practitioners who were invited to participate at the UNESCO
Chair’s Asia Regional Forum in Mohidol University, Bangkok Thailand.

Even through we come from different countries and diverse cultural
backgrounds; we share one mutual dream – the universal implementation
of human rights in every corner of the world. But we as young leaders
do not curtail ourselves only to dreaming, but each has dedicated our time, energy, and passions to turn this dream into a reality in our own communities.

Aside from the extensive networking with peers, the forum has also
provided the opportunity to work closely with the adults who have
imparted their skills and expertise on various issues in the fields of
human rights, as well as, alerted us of the pitfalls of the past, and
shared their recommendations on how we can unite our projects to
create activities on the global scale.

Sayid’s favorite part of the forum was the community service day
with the Burmese refugees in Bangkok. He shared: “It started with the presentation
from the local NGO called LPN that has exposed us to the grotesque but
real challenges of child trafficking and prostitution which is highly
prevalent in Thailand, as well as, shared the action plan of how local
community is working to tackle this problem. After the presentation,
we were divided into several groups, and were placed in local schools
to work on variety of community service activities. My group has being
placed to decorate and transform the hut on the river to a classroom
for kids at the age of 7-10, as well as, do some gardening. It has
being a complete joy to work along with local community and create
friendship ties with students at the school.”

To amplify participation at the forum, they also created a
unique resolution, where they have shared the list of tangible
activities they are committed to organize. The resolution will be
distributed to the major UN offices and representatives of the
respective governments.

Meet Our New Students

We are please to welcome four new active students this month. They are from Cameroon/USA, Nigeria, Rwanda, and Tanzania.

Kuma Emmanuel Fangyong (Cameroon/USA)

Born on June 20th 1983, at Boyo Division and in the North West Region of Cameroon, I am the Benjamin (last) in a family of three brothers and an only sister. I am presently a permanent citizen in the United States of America. I majored in English and a minor in Linguistics from the University of Buea, Cameroon.

I have always dreamt of being a civil right activist and as such I have been fully involved in politics in Cameroon while militating for the opposition parties. I believe in youth empowerment and that they should be given a chance to involve in major decision-making both at local and international levels. I have equally been an active member of the Students’ Union (UBSU) which has played a vital role of compelling the school administration to implement good campus facilities for students. I have been involved and held positions in so many club activities and associations like Buea University Literary Association (BULSA), Faculty of Arts Faculty Students’ Association (FAFSA), Boyo Students’ Association (BOSTAS), SOS Students etc. most of which try to help alleviate students’ status and rights.

I am in the process of enrolling for a social work program which will broaden my scope in life and give me the opportunity to work with the oppressed and abused. With this, I will be able to champion the course for the socially oppressed and help them regain their rightful positions in the society. I will love to be a conflict mediator and be able to reach out to the international community in a bid to contribute my own quota to those who need aid.

I read and write poems, stories, novels and drama on contemporary issues, especially for the deprived of the societies. In my relaxation time, I love watching movies and series that deal with environmental issues. My favorite inspirational book is The Power of Positive Thinking. I watch and listen to music both traditional folklore, Makossa, Hip-Hop, R & B, Jazz, Pop and Country music. I also follow current events in the society and analyze them with friends and family.

I love traveling and discovering new places especially legendary and touristic sites. Equally, since the saying goes that ‘all play without work makes Jack a mere toy’, I love to participate in sports like Athletics and football as my favorable pastime, which not only open my brain but make me keep fit. I love international games especially the Olympic Games and the FIFA football tournament which not only help to blend diversity in cultures but bridge the gap on racism.

I have two favorable quotes, which are:
“Though life treats you unfairly, never be sad for you never know who maybe in love with your smile.”

“In life there are no permanent friends and no permanent enemies.”

My life’s philosophy is borrowed from the John F. Kennedy who opines that; “Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.”

If we work relentlessly without thinking that we are being treated unfairly and without always looking up to the government for help, we will have helped ourselves, thereby helping our societies and the international community develop positively.

Teresa Maina (Rwanda)

I have many interests: Public finance, Economic development, Economic policy, reading, psychology, travelling, and hiking. My dreams: I have always dreamt of helping people in society, being a force of influence towards shaping society, I have always being drawn to different subjects, but they were all where careers that allowed me to be in contact with people. I am currently a senior auditor at one of the big four financial firms in the world. I watch many movies and I don’t have a favorite movie per se’ I was born in a village in central province of Kenya. I studied in a public school up to the age of 7 where we studied for half a day. When I was seven years old my parent moved us to a study in a better private school 100 kilometers away from home. We lived with a house helps for most of the time and got to see our parents after about three months every year. Latter I moved to high school at the age of 13 in the Rift valley of Kenya about 200kilometters further away from home. I graduated and was admitted to Kenyatta University to study Bachelor of commerce majoring in finance and economics. I have had a deep rooted interest in public policy and economics and I found myself participating actively in Model of United nations, Presidents award Scheme and Aiesec. I have received a Gold award from My President, His Excellency Mwai Kibaki. My President is my role model he has done an amazing job for our country.

Am currently reading vulnerable families, vulnerable children. I have read books such as the secret; Have a little faith, 48 laws of power, the art of happiness and many others.

My story is long but over the years I have learned a lot, I stopped seeking validation, and I become successful at one thing, being me. I have learnt that in life you don’t need seek for approval or validation from people, you don’t have to be right, you don’t have to get likes or comments, and you don’t need acceptance. You need wisdom, facts, breaking news, new knowledge, healthy mature unassuming debates and hopefully you will make a few good quality friends. It’s been said that, what the superior man seeks in himself is what the small man seeks in others. I don’t need anyone to put me on a pedestal, I don’t need praise, I don’t need validation or approval, Knowing who I am and my weakness is great, it has enabled me to live a very fulfilling life, has increased my faith.

I don’t know what to say except I’d be delighted to be given this opportunity, I’ve always dreamed of an opportunity like this.

I can describe myself as sincerely ambitious, attractive and funny. Quiet and introverted, self reflective, but still a good conversationalist, genuine care and concern for people. I also believe in the individuality of human beings, the autonomy that we are all borne with, I accept individuals generally, as I believe that people can work on each others personality and character, and compliment each others’ weak spots.

I also love sports, both in secondary school and college time I was in school netball team, I love music, I can sing and I enjoy dancing.

My leadership journey started in early years when I was in secondary school when I was selected to be Head prefect of self-reliance portfolio at St. Mary’s Mazinde Juu Girls Secondary School my roles were to coordinate all of school projects and overseer of the activities done by the students regarding the school projects. In College all of my three years spent there I was in leadership team, in first year I was appointed to be Class Representative in Students Assembly my roles were to represent all issues regarding my class to the assembly, attend the assembly meeting on behalf of my class. I was the intermediary for communication between Lecturers, students and course coordinators & tutors. I also represented my class in the College students ‘disciplinary committee.

In third year I had three positions, I was the deputy minister for accommodation and campus affairs where I was responsible for campus affairs in terms of cleanliness of classroom, cafeterias and all collage surroundings. Safe and clean hostels for students’ accommodation, also I was overseeing the security of students and their properties while in campus.

Furthermore I am a bit involved in politics, during my final year in college 2010, I was the chair of CCM Women Union (UWT) at Institute of Finance Management CCM branch; CCM is Tanzania’s ruling party.

In my school life apart from studies also I had time for extra curricular activities, In AIESEC Tanzania (The international students’ organization where I was a member), I was attached to projects portfolio. As the first Vice president Projects, I managed to run ICT and Answers Solutions & Knowledge about HIV/AIDS projects to high school students and Microfinance & Entrepreneurship project to Tanzanian youths that are out of school; also managed to raise fund for the project that impacted 500 Tanzanian youths. MFE was awarded the best project of the year 2009/2010.

Furthermore during my tenure, I was able to enter into partnership with an organization which contributed more than any other company in the history of AIESEC in Tanzania, impacted more than 500 youths in Dar es Salaam. And as a result the project was awarded the best project of the year 2009/2010. Also I was in a support team that planned and organized students career fair 2010 that attracted 24 companies and more than 5000 university students, as team member I managed to bring two companies to sponsor the event.

After my studies in I got job at the British Council as Project coordinator, where I coordinated three different projects, and lately in October 2012 I joined Department for International Development Tanzania as Program Assistant where I support 8 different education, water and health projects.

Always I have been ambitious person as I see I have many goals to achieve in life; there are some that I have accomplished which is to work to respectable international organization, still working in others. In few months I want to start my masters degree which I hope will take me to PhD, just after completing masters in international development. My biggest dream and goal is to be the motivational speaker, where I live I see and meet people who needs to be motivated in order to make changes in their lives and community at large. I feel like I should take to people and help my community and nation at large.

I love travelling and wondering the world, in my life I haven’t travelled out of Africa but I have travelled to east and southern African countries. Being out of my country has taught me that when you go to new places, you learn new things, meet new people and expand network.

Make A Difference

Dream Team 22
In January 2009 we launched a new idea which blends two previous endeavors: The Master Mind Group and the 22 Experiment. We are calling this Dream Team 22 and our goal is to have 220 people contributing $22 per month. We understand that money is energy and that to sustain and build IIGL we need a lot of people pouring their energy into this endeavor on a regular basis. We also know that not everyone can afford to commit $22 a month – especially our students, who live in countries with economies in which this amount can be equal to a weeks’ salary. So we are offering two options for those who wish to become a part of the Dream Team. One can commit to a $22 a month contribution or to spending 22 seconds each day holding the vision of IIGL becoming financially sustainable by the end of 2009.

Will you join the Dream Team and help us create an energetic foundation to support the transformational work of IIGL? You can really make a difference in the world by making a modest contribution of time or money. To make the $22 a month commitment or a one time donation, click the link below. To become a member of the Dream Team 22 by committing 22 seconds a day to help us hold the vision, contact Deb for details:

Checks on US banks, payable to the International Institute For Global Leadership, can be mailed to PO Box 18909, Asheville, NC. 28814, USA.
