Alien_teacherOwn, rather than complain about, how people treat you. Learn to renegotiate your relationships to have what you want.
Recognise the way we treat ourselves. If we treat ourselves with respect we will be treated with respect. Likewise, if we disrespect ourselves, others will tend to do likewise. How does this look in the "real world" of human behavior?
If you want to change how other people treat you, you first have to change how you treat yourself. They will either get with the new you, or exit your life and leave room for people who are healthier to come in
You either teach people to treat you with dignity and respect, or you don't. This means you are partly responsible for the mistreatment that you get at the hands of someone else. You shape others' behavior when you teach them what they can get away with and what they cannot.

If the people in your life treat you in an undesirable way, figure out what you are doing to reinforce, elicit or allow that treatment. Identify the payoffs you may be giving someone in response to any negative behavior. For example, when people are aggressive, bossy or controlling — and then get their way — you have rewarded them for unacceptable behavior. Read more »

Open Mind 2

visualVisual:
When you enter an art gallery, or see a fireworks display or the most exquisite sunset, what do you experience?
If you are visually conscious, your mind will contract, focus, become alert and stimulated to multi-task; you want to explore, discuss and share your experience and enjoyment of the work or scene, and you can simultaneously contribute to a conversation, and still think of your shopping list.
If you are visually subconscious, you experience seeing things from two directions, moving back and forth between enjoying the inspiration and ideas of work or scene from different angles, colours and patterns, and enjoying what it does for you internally, such as giving inspiration, pictures, memories, ideas etc. Seeing details and the big picture at the same time Read more »

Me and my shadow

Me and my shadow

The ancient Sanskrit Chandogya Upanishad text informs us: It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us…There is no joy in smallness, joy is in the infinite 
Your inner voice is a performing sub-personality expressing your inner and hidden agendas and may be compared to a or mind puppet or marionette. This inner voice formed over time, by converging suggestions programmed into and accepted by your subliminal mind, which in turn stores your point of view and values.
Our shadow might be described as: our unexamined likes and dislikes hopes and fears 
We have varying ranges of flexibility in our capacities to bring up resources from the unconscious to the conscious. There are negative aspects like; traumas, fears. Jealousy, limiting beliefs, etc., as well as good aspects such as; Extended Self, inner guidance, positive intent, forgotten or discounted resources. etc. So we’ve all been doing shadow work unintentionally, for a long time. Where and who you are today is a result of the combination of your conscious thoughts, and your unconscious desires & agendas. Most information you receive remains subliminal and projected out onto people and events around you Read more »

"There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so"
W.S.

Some things  to create positive accelerated change in your life:
Imagine the means to your goal, mentally rehearsing  & nurturing the feeling, as if it’s already happened.

Earth-wire each achievable step, bringing it to life using emotions.
Collaborate with an inner guide or board of celebrities selected from history for advising you.
Relive and rehearse past successes as if they are memories from your future.
Much of your power for success is simply practice erasing bad events, and bring back and maintain good events in an expanded present. Research has shown that successful people generally remember good events and forget the bad;
Stick your greatest successes on a wall in your house somewhere. Gaze and think on them with respect for the person who accomplished them, re-experiencing them.
Recall a time when you felt the way you want to feel, & get back into that feeling.
In Pronoia, the Antidote to Paranoia, Rob Brezsny declares evil is boring, the universe is friendly, and life is a sublime gift created for our amusement and illumination. Pronoia is the suspicion that people everywhere are conspiring for your betterment and always doing the best they can with the resources they have right now to help you and are basically on your side Read more »

Just think of all the processes that our unconscious regulates for us automatically that we take for granted: respiration, digestion, sensation, perception, memory storage, endocrine and immunological functions, motor skills and more. It seems that that the things that are most important to us are, by necessity, automatic or unconscious. Why? Think what would happen if we ever forgot to do one of them for any period of time. What if we forgot to digest our food or became so preoccupied with something that we forgot to breathe?
So you might want to ask yourself what evolutionary or intelligent design system would make dreaming one of those automatic unconscious processes?
What purpose does dreaming have? We have all woken from a dream with the feeling that there must be more to this than these odd surrealistic symbols and setting…

A dream is a reality that we create in the form of night dreams, daydreams, beliefs, and trances; even our waking life can be a dream. Read more »
