mind3The assumption that we all use our brains in the same way for thinking is an erroneous belief that has led to a confusion of people ‘s competencies and to difficult relationships.
We’ve been told that some people are smart and others aren’t, that some of us learn easily and others don’t.
The cultural tendency is to use labels for people such as stupid, slow, crazy, incompetent, disorganised shy, and weird.
Many scars we still carry as adults originate from these same labels laid down in childhood.
The fact is -  each of us has different ways of being smart and focused, or conscious, 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 »

brain1 Your brain hums with electrical activity every moment of your life.
Brain activity Is controlled by currents, chemicals and oscillations. Millions of neurons must fire in unison to produce the most trifling thought. Your electrical brain-waves operate at different speeds or frequencies. We measure this speed in the number of cycles per second or Hertz. Amplitude is the strength or power of the electrical impulse. It is measured in micro-volts because the skull masks most of the measurable activity.

Obviously, the entire brain doesn’t pulse in time to one frequency, EEGs show that at any given time, the electrical patterns that your brain produces are made up from distinct wave forms ranging from 0.5 Hz or cycle per second up to 30 or more Hz.

There are always predominant brain-wave frequencies where most of these waves synchronise. Scientists measuring brain-waves waves discovered they were related to mind states. Brain-Waves have been divided into four predominant speed ranges, or frequencies that relate to mind and body states. Beta, Alpha, Theta, Delta are simply the tendency for two oscillating waves to lock into phase. Read more »
