'I Can: Achieving Self-Empowerment' will introduce you to a fascinating toolkit of powerful, effective techniques for creating self-empowerment, enhancing self-respect, and amplifying motivation. Your starting point is a felt sense of connection with your deeper Self (such as you may have experienced using the "I AM" or "Inner Child Healing" programs).

You will discover a most useful approach in the two Heart-to-Heart talks by Dr. Miller, and then apply it, through two deep relaxation and guided imagery experiences – one deep and probing, the other shorter, for daily use.

The beautiful music that accompanies the visualizations and mental image rehearsal will help you embody your new understanding and Self-confidence.

Track Information:

Track 1 - I Can
Dr. Miller's warm, inspiring voice takes you on a beautiful, soothing journey to your inner safe place, where you will reaffirm your deepest values and sense of Self. Then you will review some of your past successes, no matter how small or big, and extract from them the potential you need to empower yourself in the present.

Track 2 - The Daily Power Boost
A brief but powerful imagery experience designed to support you in reinforcing your new attitude in just a few relaxing minutes each day.

Track 3 - Self-Esteem/Self-Acceptance

In this Drivetime Heart-to-Heart conversation, Dr. Miller will show you how to achieve the all important attitude of Self-acceptance. He does this by means of a fairytale about 2 princesses, one named “I Can” and the other named “I Can.” 

Track 4 - More Ideas for Empowering Yourself
Dr. Miller provides even more wise guidance in this Heart-to-Heart talk you can listen to as you drive or engage in other activities. You will learn to use your Self-acceptance to empower you.

Purpose
I CAN is designed to enable you to learn and apply powerful tools for selecting your attitude—to live, to act, to approach life with greater confidence—and then to stand back and discover what has been the result of living your life with that attitude. You will adopt the winning attitude of Self-acceptance and Self-love, and gradually discover that your life and your work begin to reflect this attitude.

This program will help you to develop further an awareness of your deeper Self – a part of you that goes beyond the fear, wants, envy, frustration, and egocentricity of the mind-made “self.” The Heart-to-Heart talks and the soothing imagery experiences have been created to guide you pleasurably to Self-acceptance and Self-confidence, to generate a high level of commitment, and to awaken a sense of excitement at the prospect of new challenges.


How It Works
Your brain is really the master gland in your body, and the images you hold in your mind determine what chemicals secretes. I Can works by teaching you how to create a new internal biochemical state, one that will support the attitude that can produce success–the attitude of positive empowerment.

A feeling of empowerment is essential to accomplishing anything you really want to accomplish–whether this is taking better care of yourself, improving your relationships, confronting major issues in your life, or simply reaching for peak performance. In order to create self empowerment, you need to feel a sense of confidence, competence, and respect for your unique gifts, talents, and skills.

Empowerment is a state of mind produced by a specific unconscious part of your central nervous system, your limbic system. This deeper, unconscious level of your mind can't tell reality from a fantasy or a clear mental image. The guided meditation with which Dr. Miller begins will help you reduce the distractions usually created by a tense body, anxious emotions, and racing mind.

You will then learn how to travel back into the past to reexperience positive events. The deeply relaxed state then enables the positive emotions you experience to re-create the inner biochemical state that matches the positive memories.

Finally, through the use of future image projection techniques, you associate this positive inner biochemical state and this empowered state of consciousness with the activities in your life in which you wish to be successful. As you listen on a repeated basis, the mental image rehearsal makes this new way of looking at things permanent in your life.

Recommended Applications
• Deepen your awareness of your personal potential and ability to succeed.
• Discover how to empower yourself through developing a positive mental attitude.
• Project your potential into your future.
• Learn how to relax, reduce stress, and heal yourself on a daily basis.
• Discover your spiritual center and the guidance it offers.
• Re-experience the feelings of empowerment, competence and confidence you felt during those special moments in the past—when you were at your best.
• Discover the common themes of your successes and become more aware of your most deeply held values.
• Develop a database of powerful experiences that you can draw upon, whenever you want to re-evoke certain specific positive qualities in your life.

Important information and Contraindications

Although there are really no absolute contraindications for the use of this product, people who are severely psychotic or who do not want to at least try to follow the guidance offered will probably benefit little from listening. Listening is also not a substitute for needed medical care or psychiatric care for serious mental or emotional disturbance. In any undiagnosed potentially serious condition such as a head injury, again, there will not likely be any harm, but it would be wise to delay their use until an adequate diagnosis has been made.

Although no such problems have been reported, people with seizures of any kind, or neurological or with severe neurorespiratory disease, should check with their primary care practitioner for suggestions regarding the use of this program. Likewise, if you are undergoing psychotherapy, share your use of these with your therapist, as he/she may want to integrate this use with your treatment.

And, of course, if you are driving or using equipment that requires your full attention, do not close your eyes and do not listen to any program that you find causes you to become drowsy, distracted, or incapable of functioning safely. Programs designated as “Drivetime” should be used with these precautions in mind.

Detailed Description of Exercises

Track 1: I Can 30:34
The 1st step in achieving self empowerment is to quiet all the distractions of a busy mind, anxious emotions, and tense body. Listen to this long, deeply relaxing, and profoundly inspiring guided meditation daily for the 1st 1–3 weeks, and whenever you feel it will be helpful after that.

As you listen you'll discover how Dr. Miller's warm, inspiring voice can guide you on a beautiful, soothing journey to your inner safe place, where you will reaffirm your deepest values and sense of Self. Next you will review some of your past successes, no matter how small or big, and extract from them the potential you need to empower yourself in the present.

Your goal will be to revivify the past as clearly as possible. With the chattering of your conscious mind out of the way, this is not difficult at all. As you relive these positive experiences, you will find correspondingly positive emotions arising inside. Your positive emotional state, in turn, is a reflection of a different internal chemical state in your brain.

At this point your deeper mind will be in touch with your ability to feel confident and competent. In other words, as long as you hold these images in mind and feel your emotion, you are creating the desired chemical state in your brain. Now, even as you focus your mind on something else, this chemical state will tend to remain for several minutes or even for several hours. While in this chemical state, you are far more likely to be successful in any endeavor.

Finally, while still in this positive chemical state, you will visualize yourself engaging successfully with life and its challenges in the way you fully want to bash with a sense of power, competence, courage, balance, Grace, and potency.

Regardless of the particular positive image from the past you reexperienced, you can choose whatever positive changes you want to make for yourself and your life to aim towards in the future. Your memory may have been of winning a spelling bee, building a birdhouse, or impressing your girlfriend or boyfriend, and it might be a memory from long ago. Nevertheless, the feelings of empowerment create the correct chemicals, and whichever of these memories you reflected upon, you can now feel empowered to, for instance, do well on your college boards, sing a solo in church, initiate an important conversation, or organize your life around success.

Track 2: The Daily Power Boost 13:09
A brief but powerful imagery experience designed to support you in reinforcing your new attitude in just a few relaxing minutes each day. In a sense, this is a high-speed version of track 1. Once you have practiced with the track 1 frequently enough that it is easy for you to relax, contact your deeper self, visit empowering memories from the past, feel them vividly, and project them to the future, then you can save time while going through the and entire empowerment process listening to track 2.

Most people begin to use track 2 about one or 2 weeks into the program. Frequently they use it early in the morning, perhaps even immediately upon awakening, to program the kinds of feelings they want to keep with them all day. Then, during the course of the day, you can either listen again to track 2, or you can simply close your eyes and go through the entire process, using your memory and the images with which you have been training as your guide.

It is also quite common for people to continue to listen to track one at the end of the day, such as immediately upon lying down to sleep. It's perfectly fine if you happen to fall asleep, even most of the time, while listening to track one in this way. The unconscious mind is particularly vulnerable and available during this transition time to sleep, and this is a particularly effective time in which to insert these new, positive ideas

Track 3: Self-Esteem, Self-Respect, and Self-Empowerment 22:39
In this Drivetime Heart-to-Heart conversation, Dr. Miller will show you how your brain and mind can work to help you or to harm you, and how you can change your internal programming to “upgrade your operating system.” He does this by means of a fairytale about 2 princesses, one named “I Can” and the other named “I Can.”

Track 4: More Ideas for Empowering Yourself 11:54
Dr. Miller provides even more wise guidance in this Heart-to-Heart talk you can listen to as you drive or engage in other activities. Through stories, quotations of wise teachers, affirmations and some of his very personal experiences, Dr. Miller will provide you with even more support for building your sense of ICan.

As you listen, you will learn even more about:

• Self-empowerment – its importance in your life
• how childhood experiences create or inhibit it
• the important relationship between Self-empowerment and Self-esteem
• how you can restore the feeling of Self-respect and empowerment with which you were born.

Supplementary And Related Programs

I AM – AWAKENING SELF-ACCEPTANCE
I Can, even though it is quite effective when used alone, was actually designed as the 3rd step in the development of true Self–esteem. I AM, Awakening Self-Acceptance, is the step just before it.
Having a clear and powerful sense of who you really are, being able to contact that deepest part of you (I am), gives you a firm foundation and clear guidance so that you can choose wisely the kinds of successes upon which you wish to build your life. I AM helps you create that inner state of serenity that allows you to discover how to unconditionally accept yourself exactly as you are at this moment – then decide, if you wish, to continue this self-acceptance into your daily life. Features two guided imagery experiences a long one and a short one for regular use, both very soothing and designed to help take you to your deepest sense of yourself.
This program also features Heart-to-Heart talks by Dr. Miller concerning the nature and value of Self-acceptance and how to achieve it.

INNER CHILD HEALING
Developing a positive sense of self is one of the most primary of the factors in developing self-esteem (self-respect plus self efficacy). If you had a really positive childhood, then perhaps you have a healthy child within. Most of us, however could use a little extra support in this area.

After all, your deepest sense of Self first develops early in your childhood, and is based upon your environment and how it treats and responds to you. Ideally your sense of Self nurtured by the experience of having people around you that see you as good, beautiful, and capable. If, instead, you have a family, community, or culture that is critical, abusive, demanding, unforgiving, or unable to express love, it is difficult, if not impossible, to develop and sustain throughout your childhood that all-important sense of being a truly beautiful and potent being.

This program of guided meditation, and a Heart-to-Heart talk is designed to give your deeper Self the support it needs. An 11-year-old child (Dr. Miller’s daughter, Aeron) helps guide you at the deepest, most vulnerable level. This program is especially useful for those having trouble with the imagery in I AM and I Can; in fact, this is really the most basic of Dr. Miller's programs for developing true Self-esteem.

PERSONAL EXCELLENCE
This program features 6 of Dr. Miller’s Heart-to-Heart (trademark sign) Talks and 6 guided imagery experiences. It skillfully guides you through the steps of excellence – self-awareness, Self acceptance, Self-respect, Self-confidence, Self-expression, and Self-esteem.
This is the original program for which the I Can guided meditation was 1st developed. It is success oriented, and a very complete program for personal change, personal growth, and the development of true Self-esteem – a profound appreciation of the wisdom, strength, and enthusiasm within, and tools for using them to create peak performance in all arenas of your life.


BEGIN YOUR DAY THE OLYMPIAN WAY
A positive and empowering way to start out each morning, this program is very much like an advanced course in I Can. It features Dr. Miller presenting along with Olympian Athlete Marilyn King, and is aimed towards those who desire empowerment and peak performance, and is especially useful for those who are leaders or wish to become leaders.


FREEING YOURSELF FROM FEAR
Sometimes we have specific fears that get in the way and prevent us from making progress. They make us think “I can't” when actually we can. This complete program shows you how to use the psychological technique of desensitization to gradually free you of specific fears and phobias-such as fear of confrontation, spiders, public speaking, driving etc.

ABOLISH ANXIETY
Sometimes there has been sufficient trauma that it is difficult for the mind to focus within in silence. The unremitting tension, anxiety, and mind-chatter prevent the full experience of I Am. This program can help clear that up by helping you to understand and deal with the symptoms and the causes of Anxiety and Panic. It can assist you in overcoming anxiety and panic attacks, as well as provide ongoing anxiety relief if you have chronic anxiety.

OPTIMAL PERFORMANCE 
Learn to utilize those tools most used by peak performers in all arenas–from business to art, from performance to athletics, in relationships and in school. Through guided meditation you will open the channels of communication between mind and body. After accessing your inner sense of power, you will analyze your best performance/behavior, and the project forward into the future the success that you want. A great way to build upon what you've learned on I Can.


DEEP HEALING – THE ESSENCE OF MIND-BODY MEDICINE
Dr. Miller’s classic text is of great value in understanding how his techniques work and why. A better understanding of how mind and body work together should be of great value in modifying your life and your behaviors to promote balance and help you maximize your power and your wellness.
