I ask this question because i see a lot of contributors who come on this site with a " need" They are often in dire straits and are looking for a way to a better life. And i applaud that, its why im here too.
But a see a lot of posts where the advice given doesnt seem to be acted upon, my reason for thinking this is that many subsequent questions seem to be along the same vain, and i sense a real resistance to the answers.
There seems to be a lot of people who are arguing their limitations .
To encourage people i would love to know of instances where site contributors learned something specifically on "this" site and went on to implement it consistently...and it produced some positive results .
I cant stress enough that im not interested in ideas, books or thought systems that people have bought "TO" this site, but rather things they have learned "HERE".
Im doing this to encourage people to listen and learn and really use this resource . I think we would all be encouraged and would give many more impetus to put into practise more of the things picked up on this site.
My own would be Faster EFT and BSFF. I procrastinated for a couple of years on this subject, i just didnt really see the point of it. The last 2 months has been a turning point to me. Ive discovered some new tools that are making my life better. I using them regularly now, and couldnt imagine life without them.

What I learned here is probably the best I could ever learn in my life.
I wouldn't trade this knowledge and the tools for a trillion dollars. Never! It's like the ultimate jackpot for me and I'm not exaggerating a bit. I never felt that good and powerful in my whole life.
A lot of other tools have helped me before (NLP, Sedona Method etc). I knew a lot about (semi-)scientific approaches to live a happy life. Although I made progress in becoming happier and achieving more and more in my life, I still felt kinda incomplete.
Then I "accidentally" came across Abraham Hicks material on Youtube a few times before discovering this site. But because my beliefs were not ready yet, I dismissed it as being spiritual bs. Then I "accidentally" found this site a few weeks later. I read some nice answers but wanted to leave IQ for good. Because though I am a very open minded person in general this site was too crazy to my taste (aliens and ghosts as spiritual leaders? What the f...? :). But I thought I could share a tool that worked for me before I leave for good.
I read the responses to the tool and stayed a little longer. "So as luck would have it" I "accidentally" read a few more very interesting answers that pulled me in.
Ultimately Inward Quest bridged my existing beliefs and translated them into spiritual language (and especially Stingray's answers).
Now I was ready to listen to new spiritual ideas and especially Abraham Hicks.
And because I believed in results only, I tested the ideas and they worked amazingly well...and they still do. So as I saw results, it was easy to believe fully in all the other spiritual ideas that came with the results.
So a lot of other questions that I had for a long time in my life are also answered now ("Why am I here?", "How can I ever be happy if I constantly lose interest in the things I achieve?" "How can I feel completely happy and in control 90% of the time?"...)
A few tools that I use and that work for me:
...and a lot more... :)
And I believe that everyone can make these tools work and everyone can feel happy and powerful. But unfortunately one must have a burning desire to figure the tools all out.
Thank you all for contributing to IQ. I hope many others will benefit from this site.

Im a bit the same, the Esther stuff, Stingrays answers and EFT in all its guises are things ive picked up "here". I agree, there must be a burnung desire to learn,implement and succeed. I think IQ bridged my beliefs too, it stepped me over onto a lot of stuff that i would a few years ago have rated as Bullshit. The stuff on IQ has altered my outlook and it continues to do so.

"The stuff on IQ has altered my outlook and it continues to do so." Yes, agreed. Even the answers I don't seem to like first seem to transform me in a positive way.

I'm sure most would appreciate your effort but there are already a lot of success stories posted as replies in certain techniques and methods posted on this site already. For example in Manifesting Experiment 1 and Focus Blocks there are already over tens of replies saying they have success with those methods, be it small or big ones. But people still won't even bother to try them if they don't even believe in it.
What you are trying to do is to address the issue of something that has already been mentioned here quite recently.
No matter what you do, if the people are not willing to be open-minded and try new stuff in their life, there is nothing you can do to help them either.
Now to answer the main question - I feel that no matter what kind of techniques or methods you use, it doesn't really matter. As long as they help you to feel better, happier and more positive, you will definitely start to see your life slowly changing. My life has not completely changed yet but I can definitely start to see certain things in my life formulating according to my moods and emotions.

Yes. Many people go seeking for validation disguised as the 'right answer' (prefer to make them feel good about themselves temporarily) opposed to the actual truth of the matter. Testing my psychic skills out, right now I read that in about 7-8 months you're gonna just "get it."

Mmm kakaboo, ive probably not worded my queston well enough. Im really trying to " guage" how succesful this site is in introducing ideas that people didnt have when they first joined it. Im trying to find out what people have " discovered " here that they hadnt got anywhere else. Or if this site and its content has changed anyones perception.
(04 Jun '13, 17:55) Monty Riviera
For instance, lets say on joining this site you simply didnt believe in anything that Bashar or perhaps Vadim Zeland teaches...BUT after reading some of Bashar you then put his teachings into practice and then thought " God..this stuff works really well" Im wondering if this site has " changed" any ones mind over anything and if so what has caused the change. What teachings or ideas have they " now" practising that they wernt before.
(04 Jun '13, 18:00) Monty Riviera
So basically, no....im not trying to address something that mentioned here before. Im after specific teachings that have been learned here and then implemented.
(04 Jun '13, 18:02) Monty Riviera
@Monty Riviera yes I understand that. Just saying that to me no matter what kind of success other people have with certain methods, some people just won't try it if they are still close-minded and not willing to explore new ideas.
(04 Jun '13, 20:39) kakaboo
So...ok kakaboo, so putting that aside is there anything youve specifically learned as a result of this site that your now implementing. Im interested in what that is and how its impacted you as a person.I get the idea that some arnt putting stuff into practise , but im truely interested in knowing what you as a person have learned here, and are using now.
(05 Jun '13, 01:25) Monty Riviera
@Monty Riviera - yes I did mention that in the last paragraph. I have been trying all sort of new things recommended by other users on this site that I have already lost count of them. But the ones I still constantly use time to time now would be just focus blocks, wouldn't it be nice and wallet process if you want the specifics.
(05 Jun '13, 10:40) kakaboo
@kakaboo And what is the consequence of using those processes?
(05 Jun '13, 12:10) flowsurfer
@flowsurfer - well, positive consequences: too many little of them to mention. Anyway some of them would seem really small and nothing to others, but to me they are something that I would never have believed would happen to me in the past. As for the negatives : well, at the most I just wasted a bit of my time even if nothing good happened :)
(05 Jun '13, 12:27) kakaboo
" Wouldn't it be nice" yep, that's one of my favourites, I guess I must use that at least once or twice a week.

For me this site has been re-enforcing what i already learnt. So i did not learn any technique from here per se, since i think i already was in better vibration by the time i got here. But still i made more progress for myself by answering questions which re-enforced the things i was doing, and i kept getting better and better clarity. Or i also read different people's answers which ring true to what i had learnt etc. Its great website for me to keep my vibrations up. I also realize many times its like Automatic Writing and many times it felt like what i wrote as answer applied to me too to do it more and more stronger.
So thanks to inward Quest.
Even in the cases you said some people don't apply the advice, i think i am sure they do to some level and maybe they are making progress but you cant see their transformation as yet.

I feel the same way..this is a big understanding that, perhaps, some do not realize it..to have a daily/constant "portion" of good vibes, to "be" in this field of discovering/knowledge..it is like eating healthy everyday and feeling it's not much since it is a habit...but it is so important...like a permanent "helping hand"... So, thank you IQ !
(05 Jun '13, 05:19) holla
I agree with you - this site has mainly helped me by re-inforcing what I already believe. I'm pretty bad at sticking to practices, however much I try. In my case, it has just been an organic mish-mash of everything I have learnt on IQ and everywhere else that has brought me to a better place.

Speaking for myself, the resistance to the answers comes from a fundamental disagreement over values and what constitutes "working" or "success". Some people want short term emotional control which is what most of the advice is geared towards. I have short term emotional control. What I don't have is long term motivation to exercise short term emotional control.
What is BSFF?
