Whidbey woman writes the book on positive self help

Asara Lovejoy seems able to inhale optimism right out of the Whidbey Island air.

Lovejoy is a problem solver by trade.

But this powerhouse of positivity is not just your everyday, run-of-the-mill troubleshooter. Lovejoy is so sure that she can help people turn their lives around that she wrote a book about it.

The book is entitled “The One Command” and is based on Lovejoy’s formula for injecting positive changes into anyone’s life.

The six step process, she said, has helped people from all walks of life create changes that result in a variety of positive results such as an increase in wealth, better relationships, improved health and the joy or peace of mind to be able to enjoy such changes.

Lovejoy has a long experience as an educator in the field of human consciousness. She is the chief executive officer of her company “Commanding Wealth Seminars,” and is an international seminar facilitator, a coach and consultant, a TV and radio personality and said she is fast becoming known as the world’s number one problem solver who guarantees results for a better life.

“I can make this promise because

I have discovered something quite amazing about who we are as human beings — that within our brain and our mind we have the capacity to change any idea, limitation, doubt or fear into something good and powerful,” Lovejoy said.

The power to do this, she said, is in that part of the mind she calls the theta brain wave.

Tuning into the theta brain wave is what Lovejoy calls “vertical” thinking as opposed to the “beta” state of the brain in which we are programmed from a very young age to think “that’s too hard,” “I can’t do that,” or “that will never happen to me.”

These vertical thinking pathways disengage your brain from your programmed, limiting mind and activate your intuitive creative intelligence so that you can reach an expanded state with greater capacity to achieve what you want.

“It’s actually a physical state that puts someone in the “superposition of the observer,” Lovejoy said.

That’s an idea that is used in quantum mechanics and is complex but simply put, is the moment when the internal and external combine in a unified state.

The body, Lovejoy said, knows how to go to certain states of consciousness if we allow it to do that, be that, think that.

The “one command” is a sentence that is used by practitioners of Lovejoy’s process that unwinds all the pre-programmed negativity on a person’s “hard drive” and allows a person to meet himself or herself in the moment and take steps to move on from there.

“The main thing that prevents people from having what they want,” Lovejoy said, “is not being prepared for that new state when it arrives.”

Operating in this greater part of your mind, she said, will allow old ideas to collapse and fearful thoughts to fall away.

Some people, she said, have lived so long with stress and worry, that they think something must be wrong if they are experiencing peace and quietude in their everyday lives.

They have been conditioned to believe that they will not be successful or achieve their goals unless they are harried and stressed throughout the day, Lovejoy said. People must be ready to accept what they want when they get it; to go beyond the horizontal position and be ready for the vertical relationship with oneself, she said.

“This is a state of grace, ease, harmony and joy,” she said.

Lovejoy herself accepted this expanded state of being when she moved to Whidbey Island about seven years ago. She found herself in a fix after starting a large remodeling project on her home.

Later, she ran into financial trouble and needed to find a tenant to live in the house and cover the mortgage payments while she figured out how to get her financial life back in order.

Several realtors told Lovejoy that it would be impossible to find someone to rent the newly remodeled property for the price.

“I went to that place in my mind and told myself I didn’t know how and I didn’t know when, but I only know that I am going to rent this house for the price that I am asking and I am fulfilled.”

She had the place rented within weeks, rented another small, affordable place on the island and started the business that is now trademarked as “Commanding Wealth Seminars.”

Lovejoy has long since moved back into her refurbished home with a full staff of business assistants and the sweet-eyed Parker, her lovable Bernese mountain dog that she adopted from WAIF about 6 months ago.

Lovejoy said that moving to the island was the perfect place for her. Like other islanders it is a place she cherishes deeply for its sense of community, its natural beauty and its reverence for all things creative.

Lovejoy would like to see the city of Langley take a look at “The One Command” and clear the consciousness of a place that, of late, has been mired in controversy and upheaval.

“Perhaps we could stop focusing on “what we DON’T want” and move to a greater vision of “what we DO want” for Langley,” Lovejoy said, referring to the recent debates about waterfront development and the problems of the town’s economy.

“I know we could command solutions for the island; we could find solutions,” Lovejoy said.

As she directs readers to do in her book:

I don’t know how I explore the possibilities.

I only know that I do now, and I am fulfilled.

“Reality is yours for the making,” she said.
