Self-Improvement and Interesting Knowledge

Want to learn to make any task easier?

Then learn to concentrate. The reason why a person gets bored, is because they are not putting enough concentration into the task that they are doing at the moment.

The ability to concentrate is sort of like the ability to put blinders on yourself, so that you are focused only on the thing that is directly in front of you. Distractions then become as they say, “ out of sight and out of mind”.

When we engage in any particular task, our boredom and lack of skill is usually a result of not committing 100 % of ourselves to the thing that we are doing. If you need to write a paper for school for example, the reason that you get so bored and uptight and the reason that you tend to do such a bad job, is that your mind wonders all over the place. Your mind is spread out in a wide arc, thinking a little about the paper that you have to write but also about the weather, what’s on tv, what you could be eating, etc., etc.

The power of focus allows you to be where you are, doing what you are doing. What it really is; is the power to take your attention which is usually spread out over a large mental area and focus it like a laser beam on one thing. Concentration therefore is the ability to control the focus of your attention.

Developing the power of concentration is very much like working out. In many ways it is like exercising your muscles. You need to take a small bit of time out of your day, and engage in exercise that will allow you to focus and train your attention. And ANYONE can benefit from this kind of exercise.

You might think that because you are a laborer for example, you might not need to work on your concentration. Certainly you imagine an accountant or someone like that who needs to focus on a mental task, would benefit, but not you. Well that is not correct thinking; even physical tasks require great concentration. If you work in a dangerous area then you will need to focus on what you are doing or you might end up losing some fingers or toes. Concentration and focus give you more energy, elevate your output and give you peace of mind. There is nothing more soothing than to focus on a manual task so intently that you block out everything else in your life. Work then becomes a type of mental freedom and a source of inner peace.

 

In order to begin to develop your concentration, I am going to give you this time tested exercise. It would be ideal that you thought of it as a type of physical exercise, so that you devote 15 minutes to half an hour to it, every second day. As you get better you might want to devote more time to this exercise because as you shall see, if you try it, it will bring a great sense of inner peace and inner strength.

I want you to take a small sheet of white paper; anything from 4X5 to 8X10 will do, and make a small black dot on it. The dot’s ideal size would be about ¼ of an inch or half a centimeter in diameter. The size of the dot or the color of the paper are not critical. Just make sure that it’s a black dot on white paper.

Now find the most comfortable, and quiet place in your house. Take some tape and stick the dot to a wall. Sit in front of the dot that you have created. You can either sit on a chair or sit on a comfy pillow or sit cross legged. Sit however you are most comfortable and make sure that the dot is in front of you. You don’t want to strain your vision by having to look up at the dot. The best place to position your dot is slightly below eye level.

When you are very comfortable with the dot’s position in front of you and how you are sitting, I want you to start staring at the dot. I want you to start looking at the dot and only the dot so that you become completely focused on it to the exclusion of everything else. Your vision might start to get blurry so keep blinking and make yourself blink a few times in a row if you need to.

Stare at the dot in front of you. Forget about who you are, where you are, how you are sitting and anything else that does not matter or pertain to you staring at the dot. Focus only on the dot. If any thoughts arise, which will surely be the case, then stop that thought in mid stride and continue to think only about staring at the dot.

You will catch yourself over and over again thinking about the past or the future or any old daydream that happens to occur. Suddenly you will wake up as if from a dream and realize that you are supposed to be staring at the dot. When this happens, cut that invading thought as soon as possible and begin to once again concentrate on thinking only about staring at the dot.

Try to always keep a good posture so that you do not injure your back, especially if you are sitting cross legged on the floor. But aside from a straight back, forget about your physical comfort or discomfort as much as possible.

The task is to make the dot and the act of staring at the dot, the entire focus of your life. Continue to do this for fifteen minutes.

As you first begin with this exercise, you will find that there is a million and one distractions and it will probably be very hard to endure the fifteen minutes of intense focus. But don’t worry; this will change with practice until you get to the point where you will wonder where the time has gone.

When fifteen minutes becomes pretty doable, extend the time of your focus meditation to thirty minutes. Do not get upset with yourself for having all those rampant thoughts, impulses and feelings. Just remember to end these thoughts as soon as you realize that you are dreaming, and redouble your efforts to concentrate on the dot. The mere act of doing this exercise will allow you to develop a great deal of focus and discipline.

Do this three times a week for a month and see for yourself the difference in all aspects of your life. That is my challenge to you; try this exercise for a month and let me know how it has affected your psyche and your everyday life.

Throughout my work, I have written extensively on various topics that can sometimes blur the line between alchemy and science. In doing so, I have often tried to explain alchemical terms and beliefs in a way that is more accessible to modern readers. To achieve this, I have frequently had to interchange terms or provide modern definitions for alchemical perceptions.

One such term is the alchemical notion of the Black Sun. A reader, for instance, recently asked me about the relationship between the Black Sun and black holes, which I discuss extensively in my book, “The Way of the Death Defier.” In that book, I explore complex topics that have led me to redefine the perception of inner alchemists and seers in a way that aligns a little better with modern cosmological theory.

The reader’s questions were insightful and intriguing, and I believe that in answering them I can help others better understand the perceptions of inner alchemy. The majority of his questions centered around the concept of the Black Sun. For example, he was fascinated by the idea of the Black Sun being a singularity at the center of the Milky Way galaxy, and he was surprised to learn that such a singularity indeed exists in accordance with modern scientific theory, specifically Sagittarius A*. However, he noted that, according to modern cosmological theory, Sagittarius A* is too small to have a gravitational effect on the solar system, and could therefore not be responsible for some of the effects I describe in my work. Instead, he pointed out that the theoretical concept of Dark Matter is now used to explain the source of the gravity responsible for holding the galaxy together. This discovery sparked his curiosity about the relationship between Dark Matter and inner alchemy, and its alchemical significance.

 

Let me begin by stating that the following response and descriptions reflect my personal seeing as an inner alchemist. It should be noted that I am not an expert in physics or a similar field, and some of the nuances expressed in this response may be unique to me. Consequently, while my views might align with those of other inner alchemists, there are specific perceptual distinctions that belong to me alone.

So, in accordance with the perceptions of inner alchemy, there indeed exists a black hole, which I refer to as a Black Sun, at the center of the Milky Way galaxy. Moreover, it is also the perception of inner alchemists that there is a Black Sun of vast proportions at the center of the known universe, and I refer to this grand totality as The Great Black Sun.

Indeed, in accordance with these perceptions (generally held by most inner alchemists), there exists a singularity or black hole, using current terminology, at the core of every galaxy and every substantial cluster of light within the expanse of the vast cosmic sea. Therefore, every visible galaxy possesses a black hole at its center, not just the Milky Way, and there is one colossal singularity at the heart of all known space.

Each Black Sun at the core of every cluster of light (every galaxy) is connected to the immense maw that resides at the center of all known space. In some ways, you could say they are one entity, yet there are countless variations of this incalculable singularity. These interconnected Black Suns (black holes) radiate and pulsate, representing a complex interplay of inward and outward motion, following cycles of relative time and adhering to their respective spatial dimensions.

Describing this phenomenon through words is challenging, because the concept of size or location pertaining to such singularities defies conventional definitions within the general framework of existence according to current human temporal and spatial understanding.

Nevertheless, this phenomenon extends further, because I must also point out that within every square inch of space, there can be said to exist numerous Black Holes or very small singularities, each pulsating in accordance with that great beating heart, The Great Black Sun, residing at the heart of known space.

 

Before proceeding further, I would like to address this question: What are the perceptions of inner alchemists? Where do they originate from?

These perceptions are derived using internal sensory mechanisms, which I often refer to as the “inner senses” or the “inner feeling sense.” This inner feeling sense is accessible to anyone who dedicates sufficient personal attention to its attainment. I have discussed this concept in numerous books, including The Way of the Death Defier. In that particular work, I provide detailed instructions on how to employ the inner feeling sense to perceive phenomena beyond description.

By harnessing the inner feeling sense (also known as “seeing”), an inner alchemist can transcend physical limitations and gain direct perception of things that lie beyond the confines of modern rationality.

As I said, these are perceptions of inner alchemists, described in a way that is flavored ‘let us say’ by the particular intent of the house or current that I am a part of. In no way do I mean to say that these are truths, because such things (truths) are incredibly hot topics within the human world, and they are the source of so much conflict. As such, I have always invited my readers to learn to use the inherent capabilities within them and using their mastery of such techniques, I challenge them to prove me right or wrong in accordance with their own direct perceptions. I am not here to expound dogma, something that others must supposedly take as fact just because I said so; some kind of authority figure said so. Instead, I hope that these words are like a spring board of sorts to help you and inspire you to develop your inherent powers so that you are stirred to find your own truth, and to know for yourself directly the nature of this mysterious universe.

I think that it is very important to mention my lack of any kind of “physics” authority because I will most likely be saying a number of things, and have said a number of things already, that are not going to appeal to everyone. But this is a good thing. It is this inherent drive within all of us to be a bit of a devil’s advocate, and to question everything, that is such a marvelous instinct in humanity that should never be shunted. But it is my hope that in countering my ideas, you don’t just repeat what some supposed authority figure said, the latest theories in physics for example, but that you instead try to discover your own truths beyond such authority or my own crazy rambling.

 

With that out of the way, let me continue.

As mentioned, the reader says that astrophysics now posits that there is indeed some kind of singularity at the center of the Milky Way galaxy, which is called Sagittarius A*. He also says that in accordance with the latest calculations and theories, astrophysicists posit that such a singularity has no true gravitational effect on us. And interestingly, the reader brings up the notion of Dark Matter, which is if I understand correctly, a needed invention let us say, that must be created in order to reconcile modern physics’ inability to understand gravity, the great binding force of the cosmos.

So, in one-way scientific fact says that, this singularity that they have calculated might exist, cannot affect us gravitationally, but at the same time they do not understand gravity so they must hypothesize dark matter, in order to try to explain the complicated nature and the gravitational cohesiveness of the cosmos.

Well, in accordance with the perceptions of inner alchemists, as I mentioned above, the world is indeed full of singularities of different sizes that are responsible for all the cohesion that dark matter is supposed to explain. In some ways you could say that dark matter represents the now perceivable consequences of the many singularities that are perceived by inner alchemists.

It is these unperceived singularities, these mini black suns, existing in every square inch of space, that are responsible for the gravitational lensing and therefore the galaxy clustering and the large-scale structures that are currently perceivable by the outer senses and outer contraptions.

I say this because, as the reader astutely points out, according to current theory, the distant singularity at the center of the Milky Way has no gravitational effect on us. However, in accordance with the direct perceptions of inner alchemists, these scientific theories are incorrect.

Let me explain.

The Great Black Sun, which is the great chaos at the center of all known space, emits emanations like a true sun emitting light. These emmanations extend across time and space and are concentrated in large clusters at the center of every galaxy, and these emanations also exist in a less dense arrangement within every square inch of space. The emanations from the great Black Sun spread across all known space. These emanations have different densities of concentration. At the center of all light clusters, we can find a large density of such concentrations that can be perceived as a large singularity, and it is in this singularity that the gravitational pull from the cluster of emanations is responsible for the cohesion of galaxies.

And beyond this, the emanations from The Great Black Sun are also scattered across all known space, albeit less densely. This means that every square inch of space is full of microscopic, indeed nearly imperceptible singularities, and it is these singularities that are now referred to as dark matter, in accordance with current scientific theory.

In accordance with these perceptions, there is an immense, titanic chaos of immeasurable proportions at the center of all known space, the Great Black Sun. From this central point, emanations radiate outwardly to assemble singularities at the center of each galaxy, and these emanations extend further, so that within every square inch of space, you can find numerous singularities that are too small to be detected using current technologies.

It is the combination of the totality of the emanations from The Great Black Sun that is responsible for all life and death within this dimension. The Great Black Sun, therefore, is both the giver and taker of life, and its emanations can be seen as the laws by which every single living thing in the entire perceivable cosmos lives and dies.

Each one of the singularities, whether it is the large ones at the center of each galaxy or the tiny ones that exist in every square inch of space, beat like a heart. They go through a cycle of contraction, which might be perceived as a black hole in accordance with modern general relativity terms, and then to an expansion cycle where these singularities expel energy like an energy-emitting geyser. And it is these tiny singularities in every square inch of space that are responsible for the movement of energy both within this known physical space and also across other dimensions, unknown spaces.

This brings us to the point I made in the book mentioned, which goes counter to the scientific beliefs of modern times. According to the perceptions of inner alchemists, this is not an entropic system, a slowly cooling pie sitting on the windowsill of existence. We will not, according to the perceptions of inner alchemists, turn into some gray goo at the end of time when supposed Maximum Entropy is achieved.

A lowly human, without any of the many contraptions used by modern physicists, when they have been able to train their inherent power to see, can perceive these fluctuations of energy as matter and energy leaving and entering the physical dimension. With great refinement they can even begin to perceive these infinitely small and infinitely large singularities, the emanations from The Great Black Sun, that are responsible for moving energy across dimensions.

Such individuals can then perceive directly that energy is always entering and leaving the system both from other points in space and time within this physical dimension (akin to what may currently be called wormholes), AND ALSO from other completely different dimensions beyond perceived physicality! This is very important and controversial because it means that we don’t exist in a kind of closed off bubble, we are instead living in an environment that is sort of like Swiss cheese, with energy constantly leaving and entering space and time. In accordance with inner alchemy, entropy is not real.

And of course, this raises a significant point regarding current perceptions of time and space. In accordance with general thought, I believe that most people assume that a single point in space is identical to a different point in physical space, dimensionally speaking. However, in accordance with the perceptions of inner alchemy, each point in space can be considered to be slightly different, or perhaps more accurately, a slight variation, within dimensions. What I mean is that each point in space is akin to a slightly different dimension to some degree, and the farther apart two points in space are, the greater the difference in dimensional parallax. I mention this because there are significant complications in attempting to explain the effects of gravity across vast distances. The farther one travels from a reference point, the greater the difference between dimensions, and thus the greater the difference perceivable by the observer, which is directly related to gravity because gravity has a significant impact on certain aspects of perception.

These perceptive differences are very obvious using outer instruments and the outer senses. In many ways, I would say that this is an almost insurmountable obstacle to overcome using just the physical senses. Even using the inner senses, they can be incredibly challenging, but they can be eventually overcome as the seer is able to master their inner senses.

This is important because it will explain a great many things, as physics learns to expand its perceptions. To give you an example, and this is an incredibly hot topic that will most likely get me into a bit of trouble with some, but it is the best example that I can think of. Anyway, what I’m trying to say is that the Earth and the planets that we see around us, are not shaped how we think they are; they are not what we think they are.

I tried to cover this topic as best I could in the video:

You can check that out if you like. But in essence, I could say that the Earth is neither round nor flat but exists within a fluctuating paradigm, a kind of parallax of existence, if you like, in accordance with the perceiver’s position in space-time and the size of the perceiver. I mention this because this parallax of perception not only defines how we perceive the Earth but also how we can perceive the emanations of the Great Black Sun.

The Earth is neither round nor flat; it is both in a sense, and can be a combination of many different shapes from the perceiver’s point of view, in accordance with the perceiver’s position in space and time, and in accordance with the perceiver’s general mass (including the mechanical contraptions available to a perceiver in any relative point).

The greater the mass, the larger the object, in a sense, and this is another odd bit of perception that physics still must deal with, I believe. It has to do with not just how gravity is perceived but also the location of a particular thing within any particular dimension. Size and distance are not truly understood yet.

The understanding of size is the key to, first, the warping of space to move within the parallax of a certain dimension (moving from one point in space-time within the ‘physical’ dimension) and then to finally moving across dimensions to whole other worlds. I hope you understand what I mean; this is a very difficult topic for me to try to put into words, and it must be an even harder topic for you to understand using my odd little metaphors.

 

So, after all of that, I hope I have answered some of your questions and I have piqued your interest so that you might challenge yourself to learn about these “inner senses” that I speak of, and in that way, you can discover your own truth.

To summarize, I could say that Inner alchemists can “see” that the Great Black Sun indeed controls all gravity, and that the currently undiscovered portions of this gravitational force emanating from the Great Black Sun are what some now refer to as dark matter.

Perhaps in the future, it may be the case that physics might theorize that there is indeed a center to the yet incalculable cosmos, and that at the center of the cosmos, there is an as-yet undiscovered singularity. They might, in the end, perhaps even agree with inner alchemists in believing that in this infinitely dark sea, the clusters of light they refer to as galaxies might be held in place and structured in accordance with the great gravitational waves emanating from this largest singularity. Perhaps then, they may finally understand the riddle of dark matter.

In this article I want to discuss what may be the biggest secret in the world, something that appears simple, in plain sight, and yet holds immense power. This secret has shaped human history and explains why Earth is a magnet for extraterrestrial and intra-terrestrial beings. The prize in question is human attention, which is a formidable force beyond measure. Let me explain.

In today’s digital era, we have come to appreciate the value of attention, courtesy of our access to an abundance of information through the Web, television, radio, and other media outlets. We witness relentless battles for our focus of attention, as organizations, corporations, and assorted structures compete for a share of our mental real estate. But what makes attention so coveted, and how does this pursuit affect our existence and the world around us?

As we navigate our daily lives, we find ourselves amidst a cacophony of stimuli clamoring for our notice. Social media, advertisements, news, entertainment; the list goes on, each vying for a slice of our finite attentional pie. Our brains, wired to respond to novelty, emotion, and excitement, readily succumb to the lure of carefully crafted algorithms designed to capture and hold our focus. These masterfully curated contents often take precedence over more meaningful aspects of life, such as relationships, productivity, and self-care, subtly reshaping our personal reality and compromising our autonomy.

However, attention isn’t merely a prized commodity for profit-driven enterprises. It plays a vital role in social movements, political campaigns, cultural trends, and, most significantly, in shaping our understanding of reality itself. This brings us to the jaw-dropping revelation: our attention is a resource not only sought after by visible players but also by concealed forces of unsuspected power.

Now, wholly from a physical point of view, some of you may assume that you are impervious to such manipulation, or that the control of attention is trivial. You may believe that as long as you maintain command over your physical self, you can freely consume and attend to whatever you desire without any tangible consequences. But is this truly the case?

Unfortunately, the vast majority of people underestimate the value of their attention and remain unaware of the subtle yet relentless assault on their focus. They fail to recognize the profound impact that the constant barrage of attention-grabbing stimuli can have on their perceptions and behaviors. Many people go about their daily lives oblivious to the various mechanisms vying for their most valuable assets: their time and attention. They unwittingly succumb to the influence of external forces, humming catchy jingles from advertisements, reciting memorized phrases from television shows, or worrying about the latest thing they saw on the news, without realizing the considerable power that resides within them. But the truth is that this unintentional and unconscious division of attention, whether we realize it or not, has the potential to reshape our reality in profound ways.

Human attention has the capacity to revolutionize not only our personal reality but also the collective reality of our world. We sculpt our existence through our attention, and our minds hold far greater power than many of us suspect. While it’s common knowledge that thoughts are influential and that attention shapes our individual reality, it’s easy to overlook the significance of these concepts amidst the hustle and bustle of daily life. As a result, we often neglect to fully comprehend the implications of mismanaging our attention.

Perhaps you acknowledge the power of the mind to some extent. You may believe that attention can inspire and alter perspectives, prompt physical action, and even modify beliefs when confronted with compelling or at the very least, persistent and repetitive evidence. However, you may not accept the idea that thoughts and intentions possess the ability to create and mold all facets of reality. You may doubt that mental constructs serve as the foundation for all manifestations, both internal and external, and that mental activity is the primary driver of creation, rather than purely physical effort.

If that’s the case, consider the following: every innovation, invention, and artistic expression began as a thought in someone’s mind. Every social movement, political shift, and cultural phenomenon started with an idea that captured people’s imagination. The power of attention lies not only in its ability to direct our focus but also in its capacity to ignite our creativity, fuel our passions, and transform our ideas into tangible realities. By recognizing and harnessing this power, we become active participants in shaping our destiny, both individually and collectively.

Further, I propose that there’s another, equally crucial aspect of creating reality, and I refer to this power as inner action. By this, I mean that everything originates from within, and our attention plays a pivotal role in shaping our reality. My personal belief is that inner reality serves as the sole creator of all outer physical phenomena; in other words, our thoughts, intentions, and attentiveness through a process I term inner action, eventually project themselves outwardly to bring forth the material world we experience.

In essence, intent is the driving force behind this manifestation process, and attention is a fundamental component of that intent. By acknowledging and harnessing the power of attention, we can actively take part in crafting our destinies and the world around us. Whether you subscribe to this belief or not, it’s undeniable that our attention has a profound impact on our lives and the reality we inhabit.

If you share my belief in the power of thought to shape reality, or if you have your own unique perspective on this concept of thought power, then you must acknowledge that the world around us is largely created from the inside out. When we direct our attention towards something, we amplify its presence in our minds, transforming it into a thought and intention that consumes our focus. The longer and more intensely we concentrate on that object, person, or idea, the more energy we invest in it, ultimately leading to its manifestation in our external reality. Attention is a force that project out and away from you in a sense, and its continuous concentration creates your entire reality, in time.

Let us consider the possibility that the vast expanse of human experience, both individual and collective, stems from internal actions beyond material scope. In essence, everything around us, everything material, including our physical surroundings and emotional landscapes, manifest themselves from the inside out, fashioned by the potent force of thought. If this notion is true, then the significance of attention cannot be overemphasized. Our focused awareness wields the power to shape reality, making it the most precious resource within the known cosmos.

Is it not feasible then, that others – be they human or otherwise – might endeavor to harness and exploit this resource? Might they not go to great lengths to tap into the very essence of conscious attention, leveraging it for their own purposes? Think about this: if attention indeed moulds reality, if it constitutes a force capable of manipulating the fabric of existence, then would it not surpass the value of gold or any other tangible asset? While material resources can be obtained through technological advancements and the mining of asteroids and moons full of every conceivable substance needed to thrive, conscious attention remains a rare and exquisite treasure, exclusively available to only highly evolved sentient beings. Its scarcity and influence make it nothing short of priceless.

Let us pause to reflect upon this: if thoughts have the capacity to give rise to all reality, if they can warp space-time, turning non-local thoughts and intentions into tangible and intangible forces that rule the known world, then surely attention must be acknowledged as a force of unparalleled magnitude. And if such a force exists, which it does, would it not be worth anything to acquire, to nurture, and to wield its boundless potential?

This planet is a shining star in the darkness. Our powerful attention makes us glow in a sea of relative darkness. There are others that covet that attention, that light.

We have been fed the manipulative lie that tells us that the world and surviving are all about material wealth, money, landing a great job, or owning fancy things. But to not just survive in this material prison, but thrive and then go beyond it, we must begin to battle for our personal attention. Through personal focus we can get the material things we want, but we can also begin to see beyond the materialistic and consciously orchestrated illusions before us. Through focused attention, we can begin to see that our world doesn’t end in the physical, but that we are instead cosmic things that are destined to travel across the stars.

There are unseen and unsuspected forces that want to take that most precious power and use it for themselves. The mechanisms behind the seen and unseen forces competing for our conscious attention are intricate and multifaceted, and I can’t wait to dive deeper into them in future articles. If you’re curious about the power of attention, how it’s used, and how to escape from external influence, I urge you to check out my book, Overcoming the Archon Through Alchemy.

But before I go, let me give you some hints on how we, as individuals, can tap into the power of attention to create positive change in our lives and the world. The first step is awareness. By becoming aware of how our attention is being steered and manipulated, we can start to make conscious choices about where we focus our attention.

To achieve this, try paying attention to your attention throughout the day. Observe how your mind works and notice when your attention drifts away from your intended focus. While meditation can help you find inner peace and clarity, real freedom and personal growth require you to be aware of your thoughts and attentive to your attention throughout your whole day. When negative thoughts arise, shift your focus elsewhere. It may be challenging at first, especially when you’re feeling upset, but with practice and in time, you’ll learn to control your reality from the inside out.

It’s important to recognize that we need to take responsibility for our awareness, which is guided by our focus of attention. This might seem daunting, but as we work on it, we’ll gradually transform our lives and ultimately change every aspect of our personal and collective reality.

We may wonder why certain periods in history are marked by sometimes radical changes, and mass human movements. By movements, I mean collective ideologies or ideas structures, beliefs, that seem to take hold of people and become the predominant reality tunnel of the times. In other words, it is the collective behavior and actions of a large group of individuals driven by shared beliefs, values, or ideologies. It involves the psychological processes that influence individuals to join and participate in an ideological crusade, as well as the psychological dynamics that occur within the group itself.

I have delved deeply into this topic in my book “Overcoming the Archon through Alchemy.” I would highly recommend that book to you if you’re interested in learning more about mass movements, memetics, and how to counter and even thrive within the realm of mob mentality.

In this particular video, I would like to describe the process of mass psychological movements, which I sometimes refer to as the mob mind, by outlining and discussing a rather controversial concept introduced by biologist Rupert Sheldrake. He proposes that “Morphogenic or morphogenetic Fields” are areas of space where there is a concentration of non-physical information. This information influences the development and behavior of living organisms, including their shape, size, and organization.

This is a rather complex topic that proposes that information fields have the potential to affect everything from cell biology and evolution to crystalline structures. However, in this particular video I would like to focus on the ability of morphogenic fields to affect human behavior patterns. In that sense, you could think of morphogenic fields as essentially non-physical information fields that influence the behavior of living organisms.

I propose that such fields are responsible for human behavior patterns. By describing the general tendency of these information fields, we can begin to understand a little about mass human psychological movements and, in turn, gain insight into how the mass of the human race can sometimes be led to move in certain highly predictable directions, and in that sense, how the mass of humanity can be controlled.

In the past, I have talked about the Archon, a vast non-organic cloud-like entity consisting of a legion made up of billions of sentient parts that spreads itself across the mass of the human world.  I have said that, through a kind of information field transference, it directs the general awareness of humanity.

My hope is that through a greater understanding of morphogenic fields, you can begin to grasp the underlying currents that shape our world. It is crucial to emphasize this information as these guiding or controlling forces are not perceivable by human physical sciences, they are not quantifiable in average human terms, and yet they affect the entirety of the human realm.

To start let me give you a general definition of morphogenic fields. Rupert Sheldrake, a British biologist and author, proposes the concept of “morphogenetic and morphogenic fields” as a way to explain how living organisms inherit and express behaviors that are not solely determined by genetics or environmental factors alone. In essence morphogenetic fields deal with the origin of form and ancestral knowledge in biological systems, while morphogenic fields impose form and a kind of order, on inanimate objects and indeterminate patterns of activity, such as society and culture.

According to Sheldrake, morphogenetic and morphogenic fields are non-material structures that underlie the development and behavior of complex organisms, including mammals and humans. Greatly simplifying this topic and sticking to concepts that are relevant to this video, here’s how these fields CAN change behavior patterns:

  • Inheritance of Behaviors: This means that behaviors learned by an individual are not simply forgotten or lost over time, but rather remain stored within their body-mind system and can be accessed and expressed in future generations.
  • Epigenetic Influence: This means that an individual’s exposure to certain environmental cues or experiences can result in changes to their gene expression patterns, leading to differences in behavior and physiology.
  • Collective Memory: This means that an individual’s behavior is influenced not only by its own personal history but also by the cumulative experience of their ancestors and peers, leading to emergent patterns of behavior that are greater than the sum of their parts.
  • Field based Inheritance: This means that an individual’s development is influenced by the collective field of its species or population, rather than solely by genetic factors.
  • Self-organization: Morphogenetic fields can also facilitate self-organization within complex systems, such as the brain and nervous system, and even societies.
  • Adaptation: Morphogenetic fields can adapt over time through a process called “morphic resonance,” which involves the transmission of information from one generation to the next.. Cultural Influences: Morphogenetic fields can also influence cultural transmission and the spread of ideas, values, and beliefs between individuals and groups. By shaping an individual’s behavioral repertoire through epigenetic mechanisms, morphogenetic fields can facilitate the emergence of complex social structures and cultural practices within a population.
  • Intergenerational Influence: Morphogenetic fields can exert an intergenerational influence on behavior patterns by transmitting information about past experiences and behaviors to future generations.

So, morphogenetic fields, through a kind of unmeasurable resonance field, a kind of telepathic data transference field, play a crucial role in shaping the development and behavior of living beings. Understanding morphogenetic fields offers insights into how large resonating information fields can affect mass human reality.

 

But, how does a field of this nature begin, and how does it grow in power?

According to Sheldrake, there a number of factors that may be responsible for the growth and development of such fields. Of great importance to anyone trying to understand the power and the emergence of the mob mind, large social movements, and even collective human control, is the proposed fact that morphogenic fields can grow thanks to:

  1. Resonance with Other Fields: Morphogenetic fields can resonate with other fields within a species or population, such as the collective consciousness of a group or the natural environment in which an individual lives. This resonance can facilitate communication and coordination among individuals and contribute to the growth and development of the morphogenetic field. In other words, the collective consciousness and the collective unconscious of humanity can create and enlarge a resonance field large enough to affect huge swaths of humanity. The bigger it grows, the more people that are affected by such a resonating field.
  2. Non-Local Influences: Morphogenic fields are thought to operate on a non-local level, meaning that they do not occupy any one particular point in measurable space and time. This also means that these resonation fields of ever-growing information can be influenced by factors beyond the immediate physical environment. This includes interconnected patterns of energy within a species or population and even larger-scale influences such as cosmic forces. Here we may include the Archon, which is a true cosmic force, a non-organic entity of cosmic scale. In other words, a morphogenic field is an unmeasurable data field that resonates like a kind of radio wave, and this wave can be created by cosmic forces such as the Archon. And further these fields have the possibility of not only affecting the human mind, but may also even be responsible for some genetic change.

 

We can therefore say that morphogenic fields grow and change the human world thanks to the human conscious and unconscious collective, and thanks to cosmic forces that are in essence beyond current human measure and understanding.

As a brief example of the power and the feeling of morphogenic fields, let me put it to you this way. Imagine that you are alone in a room very late at night when most of the world is sleeping. It is during these hours that many creative people tend to be most productive because, generally speaking, it is believed that at this time and under such conditions, the mind can remain still and focused on its own thoughts without being influenced by the thoughts of the human collective.

Imagine that someone walks into this room so that now there are two people. If you were able to pay close attention to your awareness as you transition from being alone to being in the company of another person, you might notice a difference in your thought process. With an additional individual present, there is often an instant shift away from focusing solely on oneself and toward incorporating the presence of that other person into one’s thoughts. There is this instant shift in personal awareness to include the self and the other.

If another person enters that room, and then another, and another, then that division of self grows to include a larger base of others. And each individual person in that room begins to vibrate with a certain resonance, that encompasses not only the individual but also the collective of individuals in that room.

As more people enter that room, the focus of the individual spreads wider and wider, and the growing strength of that collective resonance, like a kind of psychic pooling of energy, intensifies that collective psychic structure until each individual finds it harder and harder to find their own core self, and instead becomes part of a resonating field of collective thought. This is how an individual becomes part of a mob.

Now, the immense power of the concept of morphogenic fields is that, this particular individual does not need to leave their room or have another person enter his room in order to experience the effects of collective resonance. Morphogenic resonance signifies that each person within their own space, their own room, influences all other individuals within their respective spaces, without requiring physical proximity. In this manner, one mind can impact numerous minds. Another way to express this idea is by saying that by affecting a single mind, you can ultimately influence many others as well.

As more minds embrace a particular belief or adopt a specific dogmatic position, the strength of this resonant field intensifies. This morphogenic field begins to exert an increasingly potent influence on the group. And incredibly, these influences, the cause and the development of these resonating fields, can come from the collective unconscious of humanity or even potentially unseen cosmic forces, such as the Archon.

This nonlocal influence transcends our understanding of space and time, existing in a realm beyond our sensory perceptions. The nature and extent of these influences may be mysterious or enigmatic, yet they may undoubtedly contribute to shaping the collective experience of humanity.

As to the actual mechanisms that can develop and grow a morphogenic field powerful enough to affect a large mass of people, in the simplest of terms you could say that it all comes down to the power of repetition. Repeated exposure to certain ideas or beliefs can gradually shape the collective consciousness, eventually giving rise to a more potent resonant field that continues to grow and evolve over time as the repeated signal becomes constant.

Whether driven by dogma or the subtle influence of the Archon, this persistent repetition of ideas on a psychic or telepathic level, can be thought of as a constant broadcasting of signals, akin to the unceasing transmission of radio waves. Over time, these relentless transmissions have the power to alter an unsuspecting mind, setting in motion a cascade of change that makes it increasingly easier to sway another’s perspective and, subsequently, yet another, and another person after that.

As this resonant field expands, its potency grows, rendering it more challenging for individuals to resist these elusive, nonphysical data structures that lie beyond the realm of our everyday senses.

However, it is important to acknowledge that despite their potency, individuals can still find ways to withstand these powerful morphogenic fields, even when they may sometimes have negative effects on our minds. This concept is explored in greater detail within the book mentioned at the beginning of this video, where strategies for navigating and overcoming such challenging environments are discussed.

This is of course a highly controversial topic and I urge you to please do your own research, so that you can come to your own individual conclusions. It is my hope that in realizing that there are scientists researching the possibility of mass nonlocal communications, you can begin to explore the possibility of collective social movement and organization through what could be termed morphogenic, or telepathic fields, on your own.

When researching the paranormal, it is sometimes the case that you run into people that need help. While paranormal researchers might be pursuing the occult, UFOs, and cryptids, sometimes the people that they run into during these searches tend to be normal people that would just like to forget what they saw and return to their regular lives. Unfortunately sometimes these people continue to be plagued by these paranormal forces and they feel that there is no way that they can escape them.

Usually such people feel powerless in the face of this paranormal phenomena. Such powerlessness can make one feel insignificant in the face of something that they do not understand and can make life difficult to say the least. There are two aspects of this:

  1. The fact that they have discovered that the world is far stranger than they thought it was.
  2. The fact that this new strange world that they have discovered does not conform to regular laws. They have no way to deal with it; to stop it, to ignore it, or to control it in any way. This makes it seem like their lives have spun out of control and are no longer their own.

 

This is a very common theme with many people and it seems to be a growing thing as more and more individuals seem to be affected by what we would call the paranormal. It is not my opinion that the world is getting stranger per se but I do believe that many human beings are becoming more and more sensitive to currents and forces that not so long ago they had been conditioned psychologically to ignore.

The truth though is that we are not powerless against these paranormal forces. The truth is that since we have been conditioned since childhood to ignore a large branch of our psyche, that which we consider the paranormal, we are therefore ill equipped to deal with these strange forces.

As such, I present in this article a technique that is  simple and yet an incredibly powerful banishing ritual. Perhaps ritual is a strong word since in reality this is more of a type of action. Since action is really thought physically manifested, what you’re really doing is manifesting a very strong thought in order to clear an area of energies or entities that you do not wish to deal with.

This banishing ritual can be used against any entity that you might find is having a psychological or physically ill effect on you or your family. This banishment can be used against ghosts, negative energies, certain types of unknown cryptids, and can even be used against much of the negative UFO phenomenon (including alien abduction) that many people are experiencing.

‘To banish’ is generally defined as;– to send away, to forbid, to get rid of

In the occult sphere this generally means a technique that you use in order to;
send away, forbid, or get rid of a certain entity or groups of entities that are endangering you mentally or physically.

 

A banishment like most occult techniques, requires three major things:

  1. Great focus and concentration
  2. Strong visualizations
  3. Psychic energy

 

These must all be used in conjunction to create a very strong thought, or group of thoughts, that is projected from your mind into the external world. You are essentially taking a very powerful subjective experience that you have created within your own mind and projecting it outwardly into the objective or physical world in order to create a psychological and physical change.

 

In order to perform this ritual:

 

– I want you to take a very long and deep inhalation. As you are inhaling imagine that you are sucking in energy from all around you. As you perform this long inhalation imagine that you are sucking in power from all of the things around you, that this energy is seeping into you through your bones and every pore in your body. Try to inhale as long and as deeply as possible.

 

– When you finish your inhalation, exhale in a natural and relaxed manner, making sure to relax your body completely as you do so.  Now once again inhale and imagine that you are inhaling all of the energy and power that you possibly can. This inhalation should last as long as possible so that you are sucking in as much energy as you can from the universe around you. When you’re finished your inhalation again exhale and relax your body completely. Inhale like this one more time and exhale relaxing your body completely when you are done.

 

– You will be inhaling for a total of three times, sucking in as much energy into yourself as possible. Try to imagine that this energy that you are inhaling into yourself is being concentrated into up powerful ball of psychic energy in your lower stomach. By the third inhalation you should have a very powerful buildup of psychic energy that you can actually feel.

 

– After your third inhalation and once you have a good feeling of that psychic force within your lower stomach, extend your arms before you sort of like you’re about to push something away. Now from the very center of your being push this energy out from within yourself and as you do so imagine that there is a ray of light coming either from the palms of your hands are the very tips of your fingers. This light shoots out from you and goes out into the area where you wish to cleanse or banish.

 

– It is most important that as this energy is propelled from within you, you vividly imagine a very powerful white light shooting from your fingers or the palms of your hands. Try to see this light coming out from you as vividly as possible, make it a very bright and powerful light, as powerful as you can make it. Also do not just visualize this light coming out of you but also trying feel it as it goes through your being and out of your hands, perhaps like an electrical charge rushing out of from the belly through the arms and out of your hands.

 

– Imagine that this light energy shooting out of you smashes into the area that you wish to banish and there creates a very powerful white form. This form could either be a big gigantic star that is shining bright with pure light everywhere, throwing all the evil things away, or it could even be an avatar that you might wish to use, sort of like your power animal that comes out in rips away anything that you do not want in this area.

 

– As this light coalesces into a form before you; that is as you imagine this light being formed into a powerful avatar of some kind, whether it be a powerful animal form or perhaps just a very powerful shining orb, I want you to say out loud, “protect!”. You can use any word you like here but try to make it a powerful word that represents what your banishment is doing right now. This word should come from deep within you just like that energy that you have just projected into the room, it comes from deep within your gut.

 

This is a very powerful banishment that you can use any time that you feel threatened by something which you would consider paranormal. With this banishment you should be able to cleanse any area and the power of this banishment is solely in your hands; it is very dependent on how well you can visualize, how well you can suck that psychic energy and project it out from within yourself, and how much you can believe in the power of this banishment. Have faith in your ability!

Do not be afraid and do not doubt yourself but learn to use our natural human ability to project energy and thoughts. With this ability you can protect yourself from any paranormal entity or area where you find some kind of psychological or physical danger. This banishment is powerful enough to cast away anything that might threaten you or your loved ones. With practice and some mental effort, you should be able to greatly increase your power by working on your visualizations and your concentration.

With this banishment you should be able to protect yourself, and you should no longer feel powerless before these crazy paranormal events that seem to be happening with greater frequency everywhere. Banish, banish, banish, until you feel safe in your space.

If you are interested in having a far richer understanding of banishments and the paranormal in general, I do suggest my book ‘The Paranormal Experience’. In that book I have a whole chapter dedicated to banishments and I also give a detailed description of what the paranormal is and how it is that we go about discovering it or perhaps even stumbling over it.

I think that most of us would agree that we would like to be happier. Being happy is a type of pleasure and as pleasure seeking beings, happiness satisfies our instinctual desires.  Any problem that arises from seeking happiness, tends to present itself because of a person’s insistence on being happy all the time.  While being happy all the time might sound good, it is the case that every individual needs to experience a wide range of emotion because each emotion has a purpose.  If you force happiness, trying to make yourself see good things in everything or make yourself smile when you don’t feel like smiling, you can create a repressive state where a buildup of negative (in this case, emotions that are not happy) emotions is present.

You can though quite naturally extend the amount of happiness that you feel.  This is done by extending those happy moments that you feel naturally.  You do this by focusing on those good emotions when you do have them; by being more aware of your emotional state and consciously extending the length of time of the positive emotions that you feel.

See if you can go through a large part of your day being totally aware of your emotional states.  This will require a certain amount of concentration on your part in that you will need to stay focused on yourself but at the same time be able to let yourself experience the world about you naturally.  This type of awareness does take some practice; the best way to go about it is to create a type of third person perspective where you are able to imaginatively look down on yourself and watch yourself experience things naturally.  Once you can develop this third person perspective, you can easily keep an eye, as it were, on your emotional state.

This is an incredibly powerful exercise and will teach you a great deal about yourself.  You will notice that you have a very wide emotional variance throughout your day and that your emotional states are affected by both internal and external stimulus.  Sometimes you will feel certain emotions because of something that you witness or are part of physically, and you will also notice that your emotional states are also greatly controlled by your subjective experience; what you think about throughout the day.

Once you become aware of your emotional states, become particularity aware of when you are feeling happy.  Paying close attention to when you are feeling happy, you will be able to discover what it is that is causing this happiness.  This happiness will teach you about you, it will allow you to discover what you consider to be good and pleasurable to you personally.  This personal discovery is priceless because it will tell you what you need to do more of in order to be happier.  For example, you might really enjoy looking at wild birds and as such it makes all the sense in the world for you should pursue any hobby or occupation that allows you to look at wild birds more often.  You might also discover that you are quite happy whenever you are thinking about a certain person or place.  It is even possible that you find yourself the to be far happier when you are looking at the world through a certain perspective. 
Through greater personal awareness, by being able to see your emotional states from a third person perspective, you will discover those things that cause you greater happiness.  You then expand your happiness by doing or thinking more of those things that bring you joy and satisfaction.  In this way, joy and happiness can quite easily be extended and your life can become far more rewarding.

You do not need to fake happiness.  It is actually the case that if you try to fake happiness, you will actually end up getting it’s opposite.  Happiness can only be developed through a natural amplification of those things that cause you happiness.  Happiness then essentially becomes what it truly is; an emotion that is meant to empower you and guide you towards greater personal fulfillment.

Using this same method, you can see that negative emotions(in this case emotions that you do not consider happy) are also empowering energetic impulses that can teach you about your personal reality.  Using the third person perspective, you can discover what is causing the negative emotion.  With this discovery you can make sure that you do not engage in activity or thoughts that extend this negativity.  Looked at in this way, negative emotions become what they truly are; a catalyst for personal understanding and change. All emotions are there to help you discover your personal beliefs.

To ‘fake it ‘til you make it’ might be a good way to get out of a slump in the short term but it can create many problems in the long term.  Forcing yourself to do anything that you are not feeling, is essentially trying to coerce your own nature.  Instead of trying to fit yourself into a mold of what others believe you should be, I suggest that next time you choose instead to experience your own nature naturally.  Become more aware and discover for yourself what it is that makes you happy, extend that happiness naturally by doing more of those things that bring you joy and less of those things that create negativity with an you.  You can be happier by just learning to extend those happy moments, without denying or suppressing your natural emotional reality.

 

 

 

 

I am a firm believer, that contemplation is your greatest resource in the acquisition of inner wisdom. Contemplation is basically the ability to let your mind go into a type of free flow, or inner exploration, where on the one hand you might give your mind complete and free reign, to flow in whatever direction it wants, and in the other you stay focused, so that you are able to keep track of every single thought, that enters your mind. This is a tricky give and take, because if you focus too much on keeping track of your thoughts, you can impede the natural flow of these thoughts. Personal internal contemplation is an art, that must be practiced and perfected, but it is also a very fun activity, that can be very relaxing and incredibly mentally stimulating.

You can use internal contemplation, to find answers to problems that have stumped you in the past. This contemplation is very powerful, because it allows you to access information that is usually buried in your subconscious, and as such, not easily available to your conscious mind. Contemplation then, is the bridge between the conscious and the subconscious. It is very powerful, and it has been used by the great geniuses of the past to discover thoughts, ideas, and concepts that have been far ahead of their time.

It is indeed the case that contemplation, is a type of active dreaming, that is, it is in essence a way to project the personal consciousness outside of the body. In my book, Out Of Body Experiences, Quickly And Naturally, which is available in the kindle book store, I discuss in detail how the conscious self can be projected from the body. I discuss how this projection can be done, starting from a fully awake state, and how human consciousness naturally creates its own mental propellants, that allow the self to exit the confines of the physical body.
If you are interested in finding more about this book, I will leave a link in the description below.

Contemplation, when done properly, can be used in this way to overcome the limits of the body, which then lets a person discover greater truths, and the answers to questions that might seem outside of the realm of human understanding.

There are three types of contemplation, or contemplative practices;

The First is Free flow:

This is when you allow your mind complete freedom, to go anywhere it wants. You must remember though, that you have to keep track of your thoughts, and you must be aware of them as they happen, but you must at the same time give your mind free reign. This can be a difficult task at first, but once this fine give and take is mastered, you will have access to amazing knowledge.

In a quiet relaxed place, allow your mind to just flow freely as you watch it from a distance, and you watch your thoughts flow by like a fine calm river. This type of free flow contemplation, is an incredibly powerful way to discover your inner thoughts and feelings. These thoughts and feelings can give you clues about your beliefs and about your life in general. I don’t think that I would be overstating the fact, by saying that through prolonged free flow contemplation you can attain a deep sense of personal enlightenment, which can improve your entire life. This type of contemplation is even a wonderful form of meditation, that can relax your being and settle your soul.

The second contemplation method is, Directed contemplation:
Perhaps as you begin to do free-flowing contemplation, you become interested in a particular train of thought or concept. When this happens, you must change your contemplation into a more focused endeavor. You do this by lightly focusing your mind on this particular concept, while at the same time not trying to interfere with this natural free flow of thought. This is again a tricky accomplishment, because any strong personal intention will instantly stop this natural flow of thought, so you must discover just the right touch of focus needed to direct your mind. If this natural flow stops, do not worry, just allow yourself to relax and your flow of thoughts will soon begin on its own again. All of this mental action is quite subjective, so it is difficult to give you a step-by-step guide, you must find your own methods, and discover the natural flow of your own mind. It is perhaps helpful, to realize that this natural flow of thoughts in your mind is always there, you must just be relaxed enough, and be internally focused enough, to be able to pay attention to it. Then in the most gentle way possible, you must direct your focus in a way that won’t interfere with your natural mind.

The third contemplation method is, No thought contemplation :
Once you have been doing some kind of contemplation for a while, it is quite possible that you will get sleepy. This natural desire to sleep, is perhaps the result of the wonderful relaxation that contemplation creates. This feeling of sleep though, can allow your mind to take a final step into its contemplative practice. If you follow this sleepy feeling, but at the same time try to stay as conscious as possible of the thoughts in your mind, you will find that this feeling has the ability to stop thought altogether. It is as if that wonderful river of thought just disappeared, and there is just a very nice and relaxing void left in its place. If you are able to keep your concentration on this void, you will be able to discover an incredible new deeper level of thought, visions, and sounds that begin to take on the quality of dreams. This final type of contemplation is difficult for the beginner, and can only be developed through personal work. The trick, is to follow and experience that wonderful sleepy feeling without falling asleep. If you are able to get to this level, then you will discover entire universes that you can explore at your leisure. Universes that can open up your being, to a world of infinite mental possibility.

When doing these contemplative techniques, it is often a very good idea to keep a pad and pen next to you. In this way you can write down, or draw, anything that you see or experience. The reason for this, is that these contemplative practices have a way of changing your conscious state, which means that when you wake up to normal consciousness, you most often forget a great deal of the material that you may have discovered, in very much the same way that a dream can be forgotten. It is therefore a good idea to write everything down when it is fresh in your mind.

These are the basic three methods of contemplation. With them you will be able to do anything that you want in your contemplative ventures, they will allow you to develop a direct bridge to your subconscious. This bridge, is the beginning of an unbelievably deep understanding of self and the universe, and are the beginning of your journey into a vast and infinite inner sea of awareness, where the possibilities are endless.

Hypnosis is defined as; an artificially induced trance state resembling sleep, characterized by a heightened susceptibility to suggestion.

Hypnosis then is one way to go into trance. It is good to be clear on the fact that hypnosis is not trance but just one way to attain trance. Why this is important is because, in personal change, trance is very important while hypnosis is just one method of attaining this most important state.

Hypnosis essentially requires a hypnotist. The hypnotist basically becomes a guiding force for the patient and becomes an authoritative figure that leads to patient’s consciousness into a desired state. This is a very powerful way to achieve a trance state but it does have some flaws.

First of all, hypnosis takes it for granted that in order to hypnotize someone you need to have them go into a lethargic sleep like state. Now if the ultimate outcome of  hypnosis is attaining a trance state, then you must realize that you do not need to going to a sleep like state to get there. a trance state can also be achieved through great excitation, this can be seen when you witness an athlete performing a difficult physical task or when you see people achieve ecstatic states while dancing.

Hypnosis also tends to function much better with a hypnotist. It is possible to get yourself into a self hypnosis state, but these states are usually weaker than anything that can be achieved with the hypnotist. Now this is the case because you are following hypnotic procedure in order to try and achieve a trance. You can though achieve a trance by yourself that is far stronger than anything that you can achieve through self hypnosis. Trance states therefore are far easier to achieve than self hypnosis.

There is great contention as to who can be hypnotized. Many experts believe that only highly suggestible people can become hypnotized, that there is a large number of people out there that cannot be hypnotized or that some people cannot be put into a hypnotic trance that is very strong. While this might or might not be true, it is fact that anyone can go into a trance state. A trance state can best be defined as a complete focus of the consciousness on one object or subject. So any time that you are completely focused on one thing, and you are ignoring or not aware of everything else around you, you are any trance state.

Why are trance states so important? They are important because they are the best way possible to implant a belief into your subconscious. In order to do this you focus your mind completely on your desired belief or thought. The trance is achieved when you are able to focus your mind completely on this thought or belief to the exclusion of everything else. Another way to say this is that any thought or belief that you are able to maintain in your mind while in a state of complete mental silence, becomes a command to your subconscious. In this way you are able to consciously program yourself by correctly affecting your subconscious beliefs and actions.

There are two major ways to achieve trance. The first that we have mentioned is the one taken by the hypnotist; this is achieved by getting yourself into a very relaxed, almost sleep like state, where through complete body relaxation you are able to focus your conscious mind on a single goal. The other method which I briefly mentioned is through excitation; this trance state is achieved by getting yourself in an incredibly excited state. A trance state achieved through excitation can be achieved through great physical stress for example. Native people of the world can be seen attaining these types of trances through drumming, dancing, and wild agitation.

The fact of the matter is though that there is no need to go into either extremes to create a trance like state that is most useful. You can for example create the perfect trance state while being completely awake and not gyrating to the drumbeats of jungle rhythms. In order to do this all you have to do is train yourself to focus completely on one thought or desire. In order to develop the kind of concentration that you need, I suggest you read the article Learn The Power of Concentration.

By knowing that the active ingredient of hypnosis is trance, and by knowing that a trance can be achieved through many varied methods, which do not need to involve hypnosis, you can begin to create your own methods to achieve trance states that are far simpler and far more powerful. Remember that a trance state is your full and complete mental concentration on one object or idea. As such then you are constantly in different states of trance as you go about your day. Personal trance states are natural to all of us and they can be used by us at any time to help us achieve our goals.

We are all told over and over again nowadays that meditation is good for us, but few of us know how to meditate properly. Meditation is supposed to be very good for mental health and also for our physical well-being. In a highly stressed out life, where the average person works about 40 hours a week, meditation seems to be a wonderful way to bring balance.

  • In order to meditate properly you must realize that the one key factor is that you must be able to focus your mind on one particular thing. By focusing the mind, you give yourself a type of rest because the mind is then not flying left and right with all sorts of mental aberrations.
  • Proper meditation also involves bodily relaxation. Body relaxation and the reduction of tension can greatly affect the mind since there seems to be a direct correlation between physical tension and emotion.
  • There is another important point to meditation that I must mention, and this is the concept of inner space. inner space is our internal conscious reality; it is the reality that we experience if we are able to go inside ourselves and ignore usual sense data. It is essentially the reality that you would be able to experience if you were put inside an isolation tank where you could not use any of your five senses. Proper meditation therefore involves this kind of internal consciousness and is the key to creating expanded conscious awareness. I mention it here because proper meditation is not just a way to relax but it must also be a way to expand yourself and your being. Without this final component, meditation just becomes a task and not a way to expand your horizons.

With the above in mind that, there are three ways to meditate properly:

1.  Concentrate your mind on one thing. To do this you could either concentrate on an object in your mind, an object that you see before you, or perhaps a task that you try to do as consciously as possible. You could for example look at an apple on the table in front of you, trying to keep your attention solely on this apple and not letting anything get in the way of this attention. You could also concentrate on an image of an apple that you are holding in your mind. An internal image is a more difficult task since you must be very good at visualization in order to do this, but if you can master this technique, this is a great way to have yourself focus on one thing.
You could also focus your mind on a particular task; many people for example like to concentrate on their breathing and this is a wonderful way to keep your mind focused on one thing. The key to this kind of meditation is to train your attention to focus solely on this one task and to bring your mind back to this task if it decides to wander. Read ” Learn the power of concentration” if you are interested in this method.

2.  You can meditate by concentrating on your body, and by concentrating on the act of relaxing your body. This is sort of like the task that I mentioned above but it does two things; first of course it allows you to focus on one thing to the exclusion of all other things, but secondly it also allows you to relax your body and therefore take your self into a natural trance by becoming deeply relaxed. Read “How to relax” if you are interested in this method.

3. The final method to meditate properly is to try and go into inner space. One of the best and easiest ways to do this is to imagine that you have a dial that controls the volume of your senses. By dialing this volume down you are imaginatively turning down how much you can see, hear, taste, touch, and smell. After turning the volume of your senses down, explore what is left. Explore this reality.

It is up to you to explore what you like best, and which technique you think would provide the best kind of meditation for you. Meditation done properly is in many ways dreaming, it will alter brain chemicals and it will balance your hormonal levels. In this way meditation is a great rest for your body and it allows for certain excess chemicals to be correctly processed so that they do not hinder your natural functions. It also allows you to develop more chemicals in the brain that the waking consciousness needs to function at its best. With a little effort you too can learn to meditate properly and attain new levels of relaxation and awareness.

How positive do you feel about the things in your life? Most people tend to believe that they are very positive but they seldom take stock of their own thoughts. They figure that since they feel alright, then things must be fine. And fine for many is basically positive.

There is a big difference though between feeling fine and alright and being positive and happy. If you are pretty good at ignoring your mind or have such a busy life that you are seldom conscious of your own thoughts, you tend to figure things are alright and you leave it at that. This would actually be fine if you are able to completely shut off the internal dialogue in your head but that is not ever really the case. The mind tends to work away even when you think you are too busy to notice. Even when you do engage in a concentration intensive task, any break in the work flow gets your mind going again.

I don’t mention these things with the idea to scare you or to make it seem like you have no control over your mind. The fact is that you do and if you do find something that you can dedicate a lot of positive attention to, you can greatly reduce that internal dialogue, whether positive or negative.

What I want to point out though is that your mind and therefore your internal dialogue, is hard to stop. Also I want to point out that its hard for us to really know our mind without self examination. With this in mind I wanted to give you an exercise that you could use to help your thought pattern. This exercise should help you to realize how you feel about many different things. It’s easy and can be fun if you approach it like a game:

I want you to make a list of the top 10 things that you think most about. To do this you might need to do some self examination; trying to pay attention to your thoughts and what you are thinking about throughout the day. But it isn’t a difficult task, most of us think mostly about the following:

  1. money
  2. clothes
  3. car
  4. friends
  5. career
  6. health
  7. food

Now that you have your list, rate each one of the items on your list seeing how positively you feel about each one. Use a scale from 1 to 10, 1 being the least positive and 10 being the most positive. To do this, take money for example and contemplate it in general and in your life specifically. How to you feel about it, rate this feeling.

Now look at your list and see how you did. Were you generally positive or negative. As long as you do this exercise honestly, you will get a real good idea of how positive or negative you are at the moment. Use this knowledge so that you can begin to better understand your internal dialogue.

Now take an item on the list that you rated as being negative about. On your list, right beside the item, write down a positive picture or thought about the item. For example if you had a low number for money, write down some thought or picture that you could hold when you think about money that would make you feel more positive. And at the bottom in quotation marks, write down an affirmation that you could use to uplift you right away.

For example you could write:
I see myself in an incredibly beautiful and opulent restaurant in Monte Carlo, being served incredible food and drink by a amazing waiter. All around me I see incredible and beautiful things. I eat the best food in the most expensive china and crystal. I am treated like royalty and I deserve the best.
“ I am rich and wealthy, money flows to me naturally and effortlessly.”

If you then use this picture anytime that you have a money thought, you will see that you will begin to feel far more positive about this item on your list. The affirmation can be used at the same time or when you don’t have time to visualize (like when you are driving).

This is a fun exercise that will teach you a lot about your internal dialogue and how positive it is. If you follow the recommendations and create a positive picture for those things that you feel more negative about, you will change your internal dialogue for the better and get more positive.
