Stop Thinking With Half A Brain

Most people primarily use the left hemisphere of their brain which can leave them lacking in creativity, intuition and inspiration.

When the 2 hemispheres of your brain start to work together (as they are designed to) you become more aware, alert, and conscious.

You have a better long term memory, reduced stress and pain, and improved sleep.

You learn better and solve problems more easily.

Research has shown that the most successful and advanced individuals in the world all show a high degree of whole-brain functioning.

Here’s how your brain can work like this too:

It’s very easy. Just listen to some specially enhanced music.

The music is also mixed with frequencies shown in scientific studies to be an essential
requirement for physical and psychological health.

The more you hear this beautiful music, the more the 2 hemispheres of your brain work together…and you can download this music for free

How Do You Define Self Care?

Article by Jodi Chapman

 

“Self Care” is one of those phrases that gets thrown around so much that we can become desensitized to it. We all know that we’re “supposed” to practice self care. And we’ve all heard the oxygen mask example in relation to self care. (How if you’re traveling with a small child and there is a problem with the airplane’s cabin pressure that you’re supposed to put on your oxygen mask first. Because if you aren’t breathing, you aren’t going to be much help to your kids.)

So we know that self care is important. We know that it’s a practice we should get into the habit of. We know that we’ll feel more whole and energized if we do it.

But what does self care look like exactly? Because we’re all so different, your idea of self care is most likely very different than mine.

I’m a huge believer in defining our vision for ourselves and our lives and then moving toward making that vision reality. With that in mind, I would love for all of us to take a few minutes right now and define what self care means to us. I would love for us to create a vision of what our life looks like when we’re taking care of ourselves each day.

I’ll share my vision here, and then I would love for you to share either all or part of your vision in the comments below!

What Self Care Looks Like for Me:

  1. I get plenty of restful sleep.

  2. I make space in my life for simply being.

  3. I honor wherever I am – emotionally, physically, mentally, spiritually.

  4. I do at least one thing every single day that’s just for me.

  5. I get hugs from my sweetie. And I give hugs to him and also to my cats.

  6. I drink a green smoothie each day.

  7. I take my vitamins every day.

  8. On sunny days, I sit outside for a few minutes and soak up the warmth.

  9. I wear comfortable clothes that feel good on my body.

  10. I light a candle each day and pull an Angel card – keeping my connection with the Divine.

  11. I spend time alone each day writing from my soul.

  12. I sing, dance, and laugh.

  13. I set clear boundaries, and I give myself permission to say no.

  14. I play games with my sweetie, especially our nightly round of Backgammon.

  15. I surround myself in a love bubble and make sure those inside are loving and supportive.

  16. I stop when I’m tired.

  17. I honor my need for quiet time and reflection, and I build it into my schedule.

  18. I am conscious of my thoughts and give energy to those that I wish to nourish.

  19. I do what I can and make peace with what I can’t.

  20. I listen to my soul, and I allow it to guide me.

Okay, now it’s your turn! 

What does self care look like for you? 

I would love to read your answer in the comments below.

And now that we have our clear self-care vision, we can begin making this vision reality!

Think Positive With Subliminal Messages

“Thinking positive” is not just a silly buzzword made up by self-help gurus to make money for themselves. There really is power behind positive thought, and it is achieved by using what are known as subliminal messages. By hearing and seeing the messages, we can surround ourselves with positive thoughts all day long that gradually have a long term effect on our mental well-being, helping us to constantly become more positive in everyday life.

Subliminal audio is one such method of positive thought induction. By hearing music or speech which reflects a subtle but positive mental effect, we can actually induce a positive mindset that lasts all day long. We can also retrain our minds to remain in this state by playing subliminal audio files any time we feel negative or unhappy about something. These types of subliminal audio files also work great for stress relief.

Subliminal words and text are another such method of inducing positive thoughts throughout the day. By surrounding ourselves with positive text and words that remind us of uplifting thoughts and frames of mind, we can create a mindset that helps to keep a good mood throughout the day. These might be phrases that are as simple as “I am a strong person” or “I can do anything I want; nothing is outside my ability to achieve.” By thinking these kinds of words or seeing them written down on motivational posters for example, we can surround ourselves with positive thoughts, gradually eliminating the negative ones entirely.

Subliminal messages are an excellent way to “think positive” using the power of subliminal thought. Our subconscious minds have a lot more influence over us than we realize. By filling them with good rather than bad energy, we can become happier and stronger in all aspects of our lives.

Use the power of subliminal audio for yourself with these two ground breaking albums from Real Subliminal:

Positive Thinking:  Designed to help you see the positive side of life no matter what challenges you face.

Love Yourself:  A core album which will help you to love yourself no matter what, just simply for who you are.
