Take a bold step into the unknown

2012-03-05 00:00

AUTHOR and motivational speaker John Kehoe was one of the first people to teach us that there is more to the mind than meets the eye. His first book, Mind Power, was a worldwide bestseller, and it influenced the way people understood left and right brain functioning.

His new book, Quantum Warrior”, looks at the way humans will be facing challenges in the future, and how we will have to adapt to a world where the rules are very different.

Kehoe believes that we have the tools to make our dreams our reality, and it is not far-fetched new-age mumbo jumbo. He says science is proving that anything is possible.

It is literally as simple as: “Think it — make it happen.” Of course there are ways to optimise your chances of success, but the crux of the argument is that thought patterns create energy, and energy can be translated into action.

Once upon a time, what we saw on the movie screens was the domain of science fiction … time travel, holes in space, teleportation, food machines that materialise the food you want to eat. But Kehoe says it may not be ridiculous, if we learn to use our minds to work with molecules of energy.

The Canadian author came to Durban recently to speak about his book and the future, where people will need to tap into their quantum energy.

“One day in the future, we will be at the point where our minds are capable of doing almost anything, including healing each other without the intervention of medicines, and we may even be able to see into the past and the future.

Kehoe’s book took two and a half years to write.It is a culmination of years of research, and he said he kept finding new evidence to support the theories that he knew to be true.

“I took a long writing sabbatical and during this time, I learnt so much. When I sat down to write, I found so much scientific and anecdotal evidence to back up what I had experienced on a metaphysical level.”

He describes the book as a logical next step to the previous work. “People are always a little bit scared to take a bold step into the unknown. But there is so much evidence these days that says quantum physics is not a myth, it is real.

“I have written about brain science for many years, and now I am writing about the potential for achieving everything you could want. Yes, of course some people may feel uncomfortable. But for me, it’s a challenge to go where others fear to tread … the path not taken.”

The author says that for years, there has been a recognised link between mind and body. If the mind feels sick, then the body will manifest physical symptoms of illness. But Kehoe believes that the soul/spiritual connection is the third and vital partner in this triage.

“Our subconscious is where we process all our feelings and hidden desires, our intuition and our talents. But we do not go into this part of ourselves often. It’s like an unused basement. We neglect it shamefully.”

Kehoe believes that by accessing our subconscious, we can improve many aspects of our lives. “It would be like an awakening. A person would start to feel fully alive and integrated,” he explained. But he says that regularly accessing this part of ourselves requires discipline.

That is why he named the book Quantum Warrior. “I believe that to behave like a warrior, one has to be disciplined and have good values, and behave with integrity.

Kehoe warns against negative people who sap energy, and those who create obstacles.

“It would be unrealistic to ­believe that you will be blissfully happy your whole life. But it is possible to be relatively happy, and to ride the ups and downs of life when you are fully integrated. Most people focus on materialistic aspirations, but when you are concentrating on the right priorities, these desires get smaller. Life is in perspective.”
