WHAT IS MENTAL COACHING:
Mental Coaching is not life coaching or counseling, it is a system that uses the physical body to improve the way the brain functions. Just like the mind can affect the body, the body can affect the mind, you just have not been trained how to do this. For the first time in history, there are techniques that have been scientifically developed using the physical body to regulate the chemical (emotional) body with measured, tangible results. This allows you to stop your brain from firing in a fear based or stress based way. This gives you ultimate control over your thoughts and emotions, whether they are long term programmed thoughts or short term "in the moment" thoughts. Control that takes your performance to a whole new level!
Based on 17 years of research and development, the system has proven results with Pro Athletes, Business Executives, Actors, Musicians and many more! The ability to help so many different types of people is a testament to how effective the system is.
The best part about these techniques is that the foundation is built off of two things you do every single day: breathe and visualize. These simple yet profound techniques have allowed thousands of professionals to learn how to regulate their mind by using their body.
Learning how to control the brain is as simple as learning how to throw a football. It just takes the right techniques and then, practice. There is no magic to it, you just have to put in the physical work; people know how to do that! Typically, the reason why people don't want to work on the mind is because in the past it has involved talking about their problems. This gets the negative feelings all stirred up only to have someone tell them, "Just let it go." If they could just let it go, they would have done it already. Instead they leave feeling no resolution because they have been given no tangible way to dissolve the problems.
My system isn't about discussing problems, it's about training the brain how to fire the way you want it to. It is about getting results, it's that simple!
Breathing - the first step in the system is teaching someone how to breathe to get in "THE ZONE," control how the brain fires, and increase performance. This unique 4 step breathing system, based on scientific research, does just that!
Why learn how to breathe to perform?
The breath is something that is automatic. You don't think of it, it just happens and you completely accept it and pay no attention to how you are breathing. For most people, the breath is short and labored.
Now the mental body (the mind) is always checking the state of the physical body. One of the key functions the mental body checks is the breath. When the breath is labored (short, tight, restricted) or even being held, it is a sign that the body is in a distressed state.
What happens next: chaos in the mind and body. The mind sends a red alert signal and more chemicals fire in the brain on top of what is already there--compounding the problem. The body reacts by getting tighter causing an even greater tension, while circulation gets reduced from the extremities of your body. In addition, all the senses of the body get reduced which is why you are not as aware as you "used to be." This dramatically reduces performance in athletics and business; it is why you cannot get in the zone and feel like you are a half-step behind.
Visualization (Meditation) - Once the breathing techniques have been mastered, it can stop the brain from misfiring. That is when the visualization process takes over and can train the brain how to fire in the way you want it to.
Visualization is more than just seeing how you want to perform in your sport or your business. Even though most athletes know how to visualize in this way, this is not the type of visualization that can train the brain how to fire during the intense moments of competition.
This very advanced visualization system actually teaches the brain how to fire more calmly and efficiently, even in high stress situations (like competition). It creates a baseline or default setting that the mind and body can reset back to, free of anxiety, stress, or pressure. Fears, doubts and worries cannot come back in because the brain has been trained how to fire properly. All any athlete or business person has to do is follow Al Fuentes' visualization system. Through practice and repetition it will create strong connections in the brain's nervous system (neural net) to perform calmly and efficiently.
To sum it up, an athlete knows physically how to perform and this mental training system gets the mind out of the way so the body can do what it has been practicing its entire life.

Reiki can be defined as a non-physical healing energy made up of life force energy that is guided by the Higher Intelligence, or spiritually guided life force energy. This is a functional definition as it closely parallels the experience of those who practice Reiki in that Reiki energy seems to have an intelligence of its own flowing where it is needed in the client and creating the healing conditions necessary for the individuals needs. It cannot be guided by the mind, therefore it is not limited by the experience or ability of the practitioner. Nether can it be misused as it always creates a healing effect.
It must be understood that the mind exists not only in the brain, but also through-out the body. The nervous system extends to every organ and tissue in the body and so the mind exists here also. Therefore, our negative thoughts are not just in the brain, but also collect in various locations through-out the body. The places where negative thoughts and feelings collect is where Ki is restricted in its flow. The physical organs that exist at these locations are restricted in their functioning. If the negative thoughts and feelings are not eliminated quickly, illness results.
The great value of Reiki is that because it is guided by the Higher Intelligence, it knows exactly where to go and how to respond to restrictions in the flow of Ki. It can work directly in the unconscious parts of the mind/body which contain negative energy. As Reiki flows through a sick or unhealthy area, it breaks up and washes away any negative thoughts or feelings lodged in the unconscious mind/body thus allowing a normal healthy flow of energy to resume. As this happens, the unhealthy physical organs and tissues become properly nourished and begin functioning in a balanced healthy way thus replacing illness with health.
This non-invasive, completely benign healing technique is becoming more and more popular. As western medicine continues to explore alternative methods of healing, Reiki is destined to play an important role as an accepted and valued healing practice.
