Over the last couple of weeks, I've finally taken the time to upgrade the CMS software that runs this website (Drupal). This is the first step to a more significant upgrade process that will continue over the new few weeks.
At this point, you won't notice a big difference, other than the visual appearance. That's because most of the changes have taken place "behind the scenes" and won't be apparent until I start adding new content, which will start happening soon.
The biggest change that's coming is a new focus on videos. I'll probably start with some simple, short videos to get a feel for the process before launching into a major project to recreate the Choose To Believe workshop into the video format.
There's a lot more that I'm planning too, but I don't want to announce too much at this time.
Suffice it to say that you're encouraged to come back again and again as new content is added to the site.
As you browse through the website, please feel free to let me know if anything doesn't seem to be working as it should, such as broken links or error messages. You shouldn't run into any, but there's always a chance I missed something in the process.
This coming Sunday is my birthday. My wife and I have planned a trip to a nearby National Forest area, where I plan to record some nature backgrounds for the new meditations.
A few weeks ago, I contacted Rode Microphones to find out how much it would cost to have my old NT1-A microphone serviced. I was pleasantly surprised when they offered to take care of it under warranty even when I told them the warranty period was no longer applicable. So, I sent it in, thinking that there was plenty of time to get it back before this weekend.
Okay, it took a little longer than expected, but several days ago, I got an email saying the mic had shipped, and that it would arrive here on Thursday (today), and that a signature would be required. Okay, I thought, I could plan to be home on Thursday, and do whatever errands that needed done on Friday.
That's where I made my mistake.
Quite a few years ago, I created a guided meditation called "Sharpen Your Focus", which was based on one of the key exercises in the original Keys To Power — Step by Step course. The basic idea behind it was that when you attempt to focus on EVERYTHING, your brain eventually learns that the best way to do this is to consciously focus on nothing, and let your subconscious mind manage your perceptions. In other words, by overloading your mind with details, you make it easier to enter a meditative state.
Many of us (myself included) do a similar thing with our work. We try many different things, looking for one or two that work much better than everything else, with the idea that we'll identify the winners and focus on them.
Now that the PowerKeys Publishing website has been updated, I feel I would like to start maintaining the blog again. There's so much I'd like to share that doing so through the mailing list would be inappropriate. Not everyone wants to get 10 emails a week, and not everything I want to share can be limited to a single topic.
To be completely honest, I stopped blogging because the data suggested that it reduced sales on the website, and reduced sales means that fewer folks are being helped by the products being offered.
However, when the blog was disabled, sales didn't pick up, showing that the blog wasn't the distraction I thought it was.
Before I go any further, I feel I should answer a question that's sure to come up for some readers.
Why am I doing this? What is my motivation? Is it all about making sales, or do I actually care about the folks coming to the website looking for answers?
This week, we're featuring the new Self-Empowerment Meditation of the Month Club (SEMMC).
Check out the full details HERE.
Closely related to this week's featured gift, the Awaken the Avatar Within program helps you tap into the Divine Mind within so it can help make your whole life easier.
As the first "Featured Partner of the Week", I'd like to shine the spotlight on Michael Lee of www.20daypersuasion.com.
Michael has been one of the most consistent supporters of this website over the years, and fully believes in treating his subscribers and customers right.
