Being aware of your surroundings and cognizant of the people near you is an ancient survival skill. It’s the keystone of personal safety. If you are present and aware, you have access to powerful tools like intuition, energy, and the ability react appropriately. That’s a big part what my book covers. Here’s an excerpt from Part 1:

Humans are part of the animal kingdom. And what are wild animals constantly doing? Watching each other, cognizant of other animals and potential threats. They graze with one eye on the horizon. People also watch each other all the time—family, friends, predators alike. For 250,000 to 400,000 years, Homo sapiens have been watching each other. We’re still vested in figuring out who’s weak and who’s strong; who’s desirable as a mate; and who you need to be concerned about.

Animals also remind us (excluding the very young) that each of us is responsible for her/himself. An individual animal doesn’t make assumptions that its mates, offspring, or friends are going to protect or defend it. So too are you responsible for your safety and well being. Your personal safety is yours and yours only. While you are well in body and mind, your safety is not be abdicated, ignored, put off, or given to someone else to look after.

To understand ‘Why?’, download the 5 Myths pdf to the right. It’s is a good starting point. To answer the question ‘How?’, buy the book (here in November). I look forward to hearing your thoughts below.
