I'm gonna be honest. Today's subject matter isn't the easiest pill to swallow, but this is the foundation that sets you up to be able to live the life you know you were meant for.

As Tony Robbins says, "Success leaves clues."

Behind every successful person or successful act is the intention to make it so. And within every intention is the blueprint to create the physical structure that allows the intention to become a physical reality.

What I've done today is given you the exact blueprint (and the "why" behind it) that I've developed that's allowing me to do and be all the things I have the opportunity to do and be -- from owning multiple business to being a full-time athlete to maintaining my physical-mental-emotional-spiritual health to being a full-time artist...

I won't risk the boredom and potential confusion by trying to write it all out. All you have to do is go and watch this video I made that breaks it all down.

Enjoy :)

Always with love,

Nathan Barna

f we're working together, the very first (and, in my opinion, the most important) thing we must do is identify what you love enough that you're willing to change for.

Most of the time we don't decide to change until the pain -- physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual -- is severe enough that we feel like we have no other choice. This is why near-death experiences (NDEs) are often so powerful in transforming someones life.

Sometimes we must face death to realize that we have the choice to live.

Sometimes we must face death to realize what we are not so that we may become more of what we truly are.

Sometimes we must face death to realize that there's a part of us that can never die.

Sometimes we must face death to realize that we have always been all of it all along -- the idea of there being separate selves living separate lives is just an illusion.

But you don't have to wait until death to decide to live. That decision can happen in an instant. It can happen right here and right now.

I've found over and over again that those that have a big enough reason to change will do whatever it takes to consistently do the work necessary to facilitate that change and grow through the challenges of life (even if that work means to stop working so much).

The question is:

What could you possibly love enough to make you willing to do whatever is necessary to realize your fullest potential?

The answer:


Loving other people and loving ideas and things is important and can absolutely provide the necessary catalyst to change, but there inevitably comes a point where you must realize that you can only love someone or something else to the extent you've learned to love yourself. And paradoxically, the more you learn to love yourself, the more you see yourself in everyone else, and the more your self-love overflows to the rest of your Self.

When you learn to love yourself, doing the work to grow and heal isn't something you do because you feel like there's something wrong with you that needs to be fixed; rather, you love yourself (and your Self) so much that you feel it is your honor-duty to be the best that you can possibly be for yourself and everyone else.

And guess what?

This is just STEP ONE.

Next Saturday (3/25) Nicholas Brabhan (fellow CHEK Practitioner) and I are going to be hosting a 90-minute LIVE IN-PERSON workshop to take you through the exact process we take our clients through to identify their dream and help them create the structure and necessary physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual shifts to align to that dream so that it can become a reality.

When you come across a traffic light while you're driving it's pretty obvious what you should do.

Green means GO; red means STOP; yellow means "fuck it, let's go for it" (partially kidding).

Either way, as long as you're paying attention you can pretty reliably make it to where you wanna go.

But what would happen if you're not paying attention or you're unfamiliar with what the signs mean or you just blatantly disregard?

You guessed it -- you may not make it to where you're trying to go.

Believe it or not, your body-mind is constantly give you signs and signals as to how it's doing and what its needs are.

The challenge is that many of us have either stopped paying attention, are unfamiliar with what the signs means, or have chosen to blatantly disregard.

As you can imagine this leads to a lot of trouble and a lot of people not getting to where they're trying to go.

It's tough because these signs are often much subtler than our instrument of awareness has been tuned to pick up and register. An illness is often preceded by several days or weeks of mismanaged stress; cancer is often preceded by years of unexpressed guilt, resentment, and/or anger.

The beautiful thing is that when you grow your awareness and begin to learn the language of your body-mind, you'll be able to accommodate for your wants and needs while they're still whispers instead of loud screams. The intelligence has always been there. You just need to open yourself back up to it.

But if you've ever taken on any meaningful endeavor, you've likely come to the realization that sometimes you need to GO when everyone else is stopped and you need to STOP when everyone else is going.

As an athlete (or anyone pursuing a high level of performance in any realm), sometimes it's necessary to push yourself when you want to stop and to stop when you want to push yourself.

So how do you know the difference?

There's many different ways I can answer that question, and I will likely take a deeper dive on an upcoming podcast, but for now let me just share my direct experience:

There's a subtler language beyond the body-mind that is the voice of the heart/soul. This voice is not only concerned with your physical well-being; it's the voice guiding you to your highest potential on all levels of existence.

To me this voice often feels like a gentle, loving tug that's usually pulling me to places I've been afraid to go. But I've learned to listen because I've always come out a better man every time I've entered the caves I've been afraid of.

Because of this, I've been able to push myself harder and longer than I ever thought possible. At the same time I've been able to rest more deeply than ever before.

Life happens in complimentary opposites so always be mindful of both sides of the equation. Give yourself the space and the resources to push when it's time to GO -- even if that means you're sore, tired, and mentally and emotionally exhausted. Also, give yourself the space and resources to slow down and rest when it's time to STOP -- even if you feel like you can keep going.

Your heart/soul will guide you to where you need to be. And if you end up inviting the Pain Teacher, know that that too is part of the journey for you to grow your awareness to the ever subtler signs and signals of your body-mind-soul.

Happy Dreaming,

With Love,
