If somebody experiences fear or unrest in themselves, my invitation and my request for somebody would be just to put their hand on their solar plexus or on their heart, take a breath, and remind themselves that they are here in this present moment. To remind themselves that they are an individual having a human experience and that they're safe. When you become truly present, you're always safe. - Jesse Elder

Power Quotes From The Show

Mind Vitamins & Non-Resistant Flow

“Time behaves very differently when you're operating in a vacuum of judgment. When you are completely free of the past and free of the future, and you are filling this time in space with who and what you actually are…and being fully, really powerfully yourself. It is beyond cathartic and a restoration of your child-like qualities of being timeless." - Jesse Elder | The Art of Resiliency

Achieving Functional Mastery

"I'm hungry and I'll do whatever it takes to be around other people that I can learn from. In that way, my ego is extremely involved too. I'm not competitive with anybody and I don't see how it can be a useful frame. After a while you absorb so much information, you're constantly testing, and then before you know it you have a mastery that might have taken ten years of trial and error if you hadn't compressed it in a short amount of time. Calendars are irrelevant to success; all achievement is really an emotional journey of normalization." - Jesse Elder

How to be in Alignment with Universal Frequency

"While we're in this physical experience, we're here to observe and create. We create by feeling our emotions as they constantly act as a beacon of attraction, but also a way to give feedback. When we feel good, happy, and have that powerful sense of well-being - then we're in alignment with the universal frequency. When we don't feel good because of our perception or because of other people's influence that pulls our perception, it's just a sign that we've gotten away from who we really are." - Jesse Elder
