I was playing around with my new fluid head tripod. I made this at Gleason Falls, NH. The song is Guinnevere by Crosy, Stills and Nash.
As a professional hypnotist, I’ve seen first hand how the mind influences our bodies. I was able to help people who had long term “chronic” pain feel better in moments. These same people had spent years in doctors offices and therapy.
Now, I’m not saying that there aren’t genuine physical causes of pain, I’m saying that pain is a process that we experience both physically and psychologically. And, when you understand how your mind works, you can a) avoid unintentionally maximizing the pain. b) intentionally minimize it and make yourself more comfortable. If you’d like to read about some new research that shows why some people are better at handling pain than others, click here.
Okay, I wanted to repost this self hypnosis video. You may not believe it after watching it, but this video was actually banned by YouTube because they said it was “inappropriate content”. You may not like the video, but I can’t figure out what is inappropriate. I reposted it under another account, so enjoy it now because you never know when YouTube will ban it again.
I like to think about things that I never question. Our lives have changed more in the last 100 years than in the previous million. Without electricity we would go to bed way earlier and look at the sky more. How would that change your life?
Talk about the elephant in the room that everyone ignores. How does television affect human beings? Good questions considering how much television the average person watches. It is clear from watching this video that these children are in a trance. Notice them all breathing at the same rate, with the same facial expression. Remember that being in a trance makes you more open to suggestions. The next question we need to ask is what suggestions are we exposing ourselves to when we trance out in front of the television?
Re learning how to breathe has been one of the most important things that I’ve learned in my life. It has allowed my body to feel more energy, my mind to become more still, and my intuition to become sharper. Experiment with some of the breathing techniques in this video and see how it affects you.
I often write about Paradigms. This technology is a good example of how our current computer paradigm is going to change. Not just because the keyboard is no longer there, but because the computer is becoming more intuitive. You want the picture bigger you just touch the corners and expand them. I can’t wait to play with one of these.
If you’re really serious about personal development, then you need to be able to absorb large amounts of information. We live in the information age and things are changing faster than ever before. So, if you’re going to keep up you need to have strategies that work.
The number one on-line strategy for exposing yourself to the newest information is setting up a blog reader account. With a blog reader (sometimes called a blog aggregator) the posts from all the blogs that you subscribe to will all be fed to one page. This allows you to maximize your time because you don’t need to visit all the blogs, you just scroll down through all the posts.
Two of the top readers are Google Reader and Bloglines. I use Google Reader and can’t recommend it highly enough, it is much faster than bookmarks. So, go set up an account today and play around with it. You can start by subscribing to this blog.
