Once again we are reminded of the negative aspects of life as we witness the senselessness of another mass shooting. We watch and we are aghast at the reality of another 9 lives lost in a scenario that never should have happened. The why’s of this situation, like so many before it, will never truly be known. Even if they could be known would we ever accept a reason that makes the unfortunate event any better or any easier to deal with?Read More

It may be time for our idea of time to change. Time is our most precious resource, yet each year, we seem to have less and less of it as our lives get busier and busier. Every day, we have a new set of tasks to complete and there are now so many distractions, and there is so much information coming at us on a daily basis, it’s no wonder we have lost that precious state of just enjoying the moment. A whole world of people now have their heads buried in their cell phones for most of the waking day and more than they’d like to admit during the wake-filled night. We have become digital information junkies. The result is a stressed-out, energy-drained state of mind, body and spirit. As a result, we have lost a big sense of peace and contentment with ourselves and the world around us. What if you looked at time not from the perspective of time being limited but rather from the perspective of time being unlimited? What if you came to realize that your experience of time and how things all come together for you are actually rooted in how you interpret yourself and the world?

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Publicity Contact: Keely Bomee Platte May 1, 2014 A Conversation With Howard Falco Author ofTIME IN A BOTTLE: Mastering the Experience of Life 1. In Time in a Bottle you frequently refer to the state or power of I AM. What does “I AM” mean within the context of this new book? Is reading your first book I AM: The Power of Discovering Who You Really Are a requisite for fully understanding Time in a Bottle? Reading my first book I AM is not a requisite for reading Time in a Bottle. They both support and complement each other. While I AM focuses on radical self-awareness, Time in a Bottle is about the process of personal creation.What the power of I AM refers to in the context of the new book is the power within you to determine who you are and then to connect this understanding with how much of an impact it has on your experience of “Time.” 2. What is your primary goal with this book – what do you hope readers take away from it? What I hope readers take away is how much they are in control over the experience of their life. I hope they realize that they hold the true power within them to create both the experience that they have each day and the time it takes to realize their deepest dreams and desires. I hope they come to embrace how limitless they truly are. 3. You provide private coaching for individuals, athletes and teens. How do you feel your advice in Time in a Bottle can be best applied to these separate categories of people? Every experience we want to create starts with an intention. The time it takes to manifest that intention is determined by both the belief system of the individual and the awareness of the individual. Time in a Bottle is deeply committed to helping the reader align both of these critical factors together so they can achieve what they want faster and with less suffering, confusion and potential roadblocks along the way. It is about seeing and believing in more of what is possible for them each day. 4. You encourage us to adjust and broaden our perspective of time in order to “collapse” it so that we may actualize our goals faster than before – to essentially cut a more direct path from point A to point B. How do you define “time”? I see time as the gap between thought and realization, the space between intention and experience, the movement between the experience of creating the dream and the actual realization of the dream. I see time as the journey of never-ending awareness. 5. Oftentimes when met with an obstacle or challenge in life (missing a flight, spilling your coffee, ending a relationship, etc.), people say, “It happened for a reason,” – believing that whatever is meant to happen will happen. What is your reaction to this phrase and do you encourage this belief? I believe that everything that happens in the entire universe is for a specific purpose. There is nothing random as it relates to you the observer. It’s all about raising your awareness in a direct working relationship with your bigger questions, dreams, desires, and intentions. The reason I encourage looking at the world from this perspective is that it reduces resistance, denial and time, and allows the reader to...Read More
Your truth is at the heart of your experience of life. It drives every thought you have, every emotion you feel, every decision you make and every action you take. Becoming aware of these powerful thoughts can be extremely empowering, because it gives you a real opportunity to change them and replace them with the truths and beliefs that empower you to create what you imagine for yourself. This is what changes your experience! Below are five of the most damaging, limiting and time-consuming I AM beliefs you can hold and five REPLACEMENT TRUTHS. I encourage you to challenge any negative beliefs that you hold to be true, and embrace new, more empowering ideas of who you are. An exciting reality is only a few changed personal truths away! 1.“I AM not fortunate enough.” We can’t change the past or the conditions with which we entered this lifetime. We can, however work from the current circumstances to build the conditions that will lift us to a new experience of life. Resisting the truth of your situation or being jealous of others only adds time to what you truly want to create. The truth is that you’re fortunate in a million different ways and blessed with a million different creative opportunities. Replacement: I AM fortunate in every way imaginable. 2.“I AM not attractive enough.” Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and the most important beholder is always you. The way you look at who you are has an immeasurable positive or negative effect on all who look at you. Feel beautiful, loving and accepting of yourself and everyone around you will feel it and even comment on it! Feel unattractive, unloving, and down on yourself and others will feel that too. The truth is that you are beautiful and attractive as you feel and express. True beauty is an inside job! Replacement: I AM a beautiful, attractive, and loving human being. 3. “I AM not capable enough.” You never know what’s going to happen next. Just because something hasn’t happened for you doesn’t mean it won’t happen in the future. This thought becomes really damaging when you say it about something you’ve never even tried doing before. How do you know until you try? You don’t know what you’re truly capable of until you give everything you have to the effort. There’s no such thing as failure; there’s only the opportunity to learn. Replacement: I AM capable of anything I put my mind and heart towards. 4. “I AM not worthy enough.” There is a statement in my book that says, “Your existence as matter is the self-evident truth that you matter.” It’s not your worthiness that’s in question — only your belief about your worthiness! The truth is that you’re worthy of anything you put your heart, mind and soul into, including love, a job, abundance, health, peace of mind and all the other fruits of the world. That fact that you are here, now, means you ARE worthy. Accept this truth and open the door to the experience of it! Replacement: I AM worthy of all I imagine for myself. 5.“I AM not significant or lovable enough.” There isn’t another human being in the world more or less significant or capable of love than you. Significance is defined in your mind first, then it flows into your feelings and actions. Feeling significant in your own mind translates into thoughts, words, and deeds that have significance in the world around you. You must start from the place of total self-acceptance and self-love in order to feel significant...Read More
