Julian Kaufmann is an energy expert, entrepreneur, and author. Julian helps people get more out of life by applying science and universal spiritual truths to get more done by using less energy. After his own spiritual awakening led him to discover the 4-flowgates for increasing your personal power, Julian wrote Let Go, Let It Flow – The PATH To Peace and Personal Power.
This groundbreaking work teaches us how to apply Julian’s Theory of Conductivity in our life and more fully express and share our true gifts with the world. We are infused with abundant energy but unfortunately, we often waste our precious resources. As a result of our mismanagement of our life energy, our life’s work often suffers. Energy is the ability to do work and our life’s work is a measure of how efficiently and effectively we manage our energy.

“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be. When I let go of what I have, I receive what I need.”
Julian operates his entire life, and wrote his new book around a simple but powerful concept known as “The P.A.T.H.”
It is Julian’s belief that in this fast paced hectic world, a world that is constantly trying to distract and derail us from what is truly important this simple, four-step framework is the key to living a truly abundant and fulfilling life.
The acronym stands for Presence, Acceptance, Thankfulness, and Helping.
Pick up your phone for me.
Now scroll through your applications and tell me how many notifications and messages are weighing down your device.
It’s a lot, right?
This isn’t an accident.
In our modern era of iPhones, instant messaging, and unavoidable advertising, the powers at be have made a very conscious effort to keep your focus distracted, your attention captured, and your mind occupied.
I’m not talking about the Illuminati or some wild conspiracy theory.
I am just talking about the facts.
Red Crown Marketing reported that the average adult will be exposed to upwards of 4,000 advertisements per day… and that’s being conservative.
And this figure is just talking about paid advertising! It doesn’t even take into account the seemingly endless stream of social media updates, blog posts, and “New Releases” on Netflix.
So with all of these different forces vying for your attention, is it any wonder why we live in an ADHD society whose attention span is rapidly decreasing to less than that of a goldfish?
Of course not.
And this is where we run into problems.
Depression and anxiety are at an all-time high, suicide (especially among men) is on the rise, and general dissatisfaction with life continues to soar despite our meteoric advances in technology.
And at the end of the day, I believe that the heart of the problem lies in one simple truth. Life is meant to be experienced not observed, and with this constant barrage of attention-stealing garbage, our society has lost the ability to simply sit back and be.
So I want to challenge you.
I don’t want to challenge you to work harder, approach more women, or exercise more (although you can if you want). No, I want to challenge you to simply be.
Take time each and every day for the next ten days to simply enjoy being, to be present and fully alive in the moment.
Whether you meditate daily, take part in a “Flow-inducing” activity, or simply walk around in nature, give yourself the gift of being… It might just change your life.
Life is unpredictable, and as Murphy’s Law states, “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.”
But guess what? It’s ok.
Because at the end of the day, whether you believe that life has a purpose or that we are merely ashes and dust, what is done has been done, and all that you can do is to accept it.
And when you can learn to accept life, just as it comes, you will experience true freedom.
Despite your best efforts, things will happen, tragedy will strike, and pain becomes an inevitable part of existence.
But when you accept things as they are, when you can put your best effort forward while resigning responsibility for what you cannot control, you will experience a peace beyond what you thought possible.
This peace, however, is only attainable when you are truly willing to accept your circumstances and let go of the outcomes.
Yes, there are times where life will challenge you and require you to step up to the plate and swing for all that you are worth.
But there are also times where life will ask something even more difficult from you. It will ask you to surrender. It will ask you to accept the flow of life and let go of the outcomes you cannot control.
And this is possibly the greatest challenge of all.
But if you can master this one simple principle, you will find that, while life may not get easier, you will have the peace to move through any adversity.
It is often said that “Laughter is the best medicine”.
I must respectfully disagree.
In my life, and in the lives of thousands of my clients, I have found that the most powerful “medicine” for any ailment is thankfulness.
Because thankfulness is the antidote for fear, doubt, anxiety, depression, and worry.
When you are thankful for what you have, you become less stressed about what you need and want.
When you are thankful for what you have, no matter how trying the circumstances you are facing, you can face life with a smile knowing that you are blessed.
When you are thankful for what you have, you unlock a powerful ability to reframe adversity into opportunity.
When you are thankful for what you have and open up to life, life will open up to you and bring more peace and personal power than you ever thought possible.
So no matter what you are facing right now, be thankful.
It saved my life, and it might just save yours.
We live in a funny world.
Despite the prevalence of our negative media, which showcases all of the pain and suffering around the world from the slums of Africa to the refugee camps of Syria, our society still manages to focus on itself and complain about “problems” like traffic and slow wifi.
And this twisted reality reminds me of an old personal growth adage, “Where focus goes energy flows.”
You see, when we are constantly focused on ourselves, our own problems, and our own issues, the problems and struggles are magnified and amplified until they feel overwhelming.
But when we take the focus off of ourselves, when we refocus on those around us who are in dire need of help, we gain perspective and power over our problems.
While helping others might not cover your car payment, cure your sickness, or reunite you with your lost love, it will help you to remember your blessings and realize just how good your life really is.
It will reconnect you with others, help you step back from your own problems, and help you realize that you aren’t doing this journey alone.
So I challenge you do help someone else this week.
Whether it’s a simple phone conversation to encourage a struggling family member, a few hours spent at a soup kitchen, or simply buying someone’s coffee in line at Starbucks, do something this week to help someone else.
You will be amazed at the transformation you will experience in your mindset and life.
