A Spiritual Awakening Center
On the Internet
Mind is your Own Business is a Home Study Course, which can be enjoyed individually or in small groups. Nine DVD's add up to 12 hours of exciting, interesting presentations which bring together the teachings of the ancient mystics with the teachings of contemporary quantum physicists - to prove that our thoughts create our reality.
Each DVD includes 2 parts - a presentation by John McLaughlin, followed by a question and answer session between the audience and both John and Lauren McLaughlin.
Q. -What does MIND IS YOUR OWN BUSINESS mean?
MIND IS YOUR OWN BUSINESS explains how your your life unfolds, day-by-day, according to the kind of thoughts you think and the feelings that those thought generate. That isn’t new news. What is new, however, is the clear understanding that there are SPECIFIC THINGS THAT YOU CAN DO TO TAKE CHARGE AND STAY IN CHARGE of your own thoughts. I will help you to clearly identify those practices and to really understand why they are so important to your quality of life. I will also show you how to practice them consistently and pleasantly, so that they will work for you all of the time.
Q.– What type of Truth Student is the material in MIND IS YOUR OWN BUSINESS designed to help?
- This program is designed for anyone who wants to gain full mastery of his or her own life.
Q - In what way will learning how my mind works help me to live more fully and joyfully?
John McLaughlin: -
Both Quantum Physicians and Metaphysicians have now reached at least a tacit agreement that your thoughts control the outcome of our life experience. Within our individual mindsets, however, are a set of beliefs, that were mostly formed before we were twelve years old, at both the conscious and the subconscious levels of mind. Many of those beliefs are no longer valid, (such as, it is dangerous to talk to strangers), but those beliefs are still controlling and often limiting and/or destroying the our quality of life. If weu want our lives to unfold according to our current preferences, it is helpful to understand the mechanism within us that creates as well as dissolves beliefs.
Q - That sounds complicated. Do I need to understand much about science to understand these teachings?
John McLaughlin: –
No, a background in science is not necessary because I will use simple illustrations and examples an stories to make what appear to be complex concepts easy to grasp – and – I lace my teaching with humor because humor causes an opening that allows new information to come in. Anyone can understand, implement and apply these teachings who is open to learn how they think and is then willing to make the changes that will make a difference.
Q. - On what authority do you teach what you teach?
John McLaughlin: -
As a college dropout, I have not been limited by the constraints of a formal education. I am an eclectic reader and a student of human nature, who for over 35 years has studied extensively in the areas of psychology, philosophy, metaphysics, religion and the links between Quantum physics and mysticism. I am an ordained Unity Minister and I am trained in the energy management techniques of NLP, Psych-K, and EFT. Prior to becoming a Minister, I was a successful Real Estate Broker, National Sales Trainer, and Motivational Speaker. My entire adult life has been and is devoted to freeing people (including myself) from the tyranny of their own thoughts.
Q – Like all Truth Students, it is my desire to become enlightened. Will MIND IS YOUR OWN BUSINESS help me toward that quest?
John McLaughlin: -
Enlightenment is not about learning anything - you can’t learn how to be enlightened. In fact, enlightenment is actually
the art of unlearning. The more you know, the more you
have to let go. These teachings will, however, take you a long way toward that vital step of letting-go and allowing your life to unfold without resistance.

Lesson 1 – WHO IS IN CHARGE HERE?
Using demonstrations and practical examples, John helps students to break through the myth that what they are “seeing” today is actually real and illustrates how their subconsciously held beliefs keep them from achieving the real desires of their hearts.
Lesson 2 - A STRANGE THING HAPPENED TO ME ON THE WAY TO ADULTHOOD.
It is important to understand that what we learned, formally or informally, about ourselves as children is still seriously impacting our lives right now. John illustrates for the students how much of what they believe today is exactly the same as what they believed when they were 12 years old. Because of that, they are literally blinded to the amazing new discoveries, opportunities and experiences that are unfolding before them every day.
Lesson 3 – ONE MIND, OR TWO OR THREE
Self talk (incessant internal chatter), emotions and beliefs work together to control what we allow ourselves to “see”, but when we Awaken to our inner resources, vital input from the creative intelligence of the Universe becomes instantly available also. The trick is to learn how to lower the volume of our conscious and subconscious chatter so that we can hear more clearly the guidance that is always available to us from Divine Mind.
Lesson 4 – THE BLAME GAME
Religious dogma and doctrine, guilt, blame and shame restrict the natural flow of positive Universal energy to us. Once we become aware of how much time we spend blaming and shaming, criticizing, judging and condemning ourselves and others, we are able to purge ourselves of the poisons we have self-inflicted and eliminate our own suffering.
Lesson 5 - IT’S ABOUT TIME AND SPACE
We are simultaneously human beings and Spiritual Beings and only in our human form, are we bound by the dimensions of time and space. In order to live effectively in the Time/Space continuum however, it is helpful for us to understand how the various dimensions relate to each other. When we understand how intimately we are connected to everything else around us, it is eye opening to realize that everything that what we think, say and do affects the energy of the entire Universe.
Lesson 6 – OVERCOMING THE EGOIC MIND
The single most controlling element in our human life experience is our own ego. Mastering control of our ego is, without a doubt, the major challenge of our life. When we are not paying attention, our ego can and does goad us, just like a bully or a temperamental child, into countless, unproductive behaviors – but the Truth is that our egoic energy is a nothing but a set of beliefs we h old about ourselves. Once we Awaken to what our ego really is and how to handle it, we can put an end to our damaging behaviors and take control of our own outcomes.
Lesson 7 – TURNING IT AROUND - PIVOT
Learning the Art of Pivoting is an invaluable skill because it allows us to wend our way through the twists and turns, and over the mountains and molehills of the human experience without much struggle. Pivoting could be described as developing an ability to reach for the light switch the minute darkness presents itself and maneuvering ourselves efficiently out of the shadows, back into the light.
Lesson 8 - MANIFESTATION
It is a fact that we can consciously cooperate with the Law or Attraction to create the things, circumstances, and relationships, exactly as we want them to appear in our lives – and it is also a fact that, just as we can use a knife to cure or to kill, we can unconsciously use the Law of Attraction to create a life of misery and devastation for ourselves and everyone around us Awakening to AWESOME POWER of our own thoughts first, and then learning how to direct our thinking consistently toward a positive result, truly is THE SECRET to living a happy life.
Lesson 9 – FLOW
Some of the things we learned in childhood still serve us very well. We knew how to be happy when we were children and It has always been our intention to live joyously, freely and to make great new discoveries while we are here on this plane of existence. We have the skills, we have the tools and we have access to all of the wisdom and knowledge of the Universe. Life just doesn’t have to be hard – unless we make it so. Once we stop resisting and learn how to “go with the flow” of the Universe, we discover that the first step toward our own enlightenment is to simply “lighten up.”
