  1. It was quite a revelation to me when I found out that reciprocity is hardwired into the human brain. It is what Leo's business model is based on. Give give give give give, then because of the hardwired reciprocity, people will be compelled to give back to you. It is a great way to resolve/prevent conflict and form strategic relationships. This is the book that I learned it from.
  2. haven't read it yet, but this book might offer some insight. "Highlighting the fascinating link between a child’s neurological development and the way a parent reacts to misbehavior, No-Drama Discipline provides an effective, compassionate road map for dealing with tantrums, tensions, and tears—without causing a scene. Defining the true meaning of the “d” word (to instruct, not to shout or reprimand), the authors explain how to reach your child, redirect emotions, and turn a meltdown into an opportunity for growth. By doing so, the cycle of negative behavior (and punishment) is essentially brought to a halt, as problem solving becomes a win/win situation. Inside this sanity-saving guide you’ll discover • strategies that help parents identify their own discipline philosophy—and master the best methods to communicate the lessons they are trying to impart • facts on child brain development—and what kind of discipline is most appropriate and constructive at all ages and stages • the way to calmly and lovingly connect with a child—no matter how extreme the behavior—while still setting clear and consistent limits • tips for navigating your child through a tantrum to achieve insight, empathy, and repair • twenty discipline mistakes even the best parents make—and how to stay focused on the principles of whole-brain parenting and discipline techniques Complete with candid stories and playful illustrations that bring the authors’ suggestions to life, No-Drama Discipline shows you how to work with your child’s developing mind, peacefully resolve conflicts, and inspire happiness and strengthen resilience in everyone in the family."
  3. "When you discover new things, learn about interesting facts, and investigate the world, you spark your creativity and increase your imagination. Think, why are children creative and imaginative? Because they want to learn, see, and touch everything around them. They want to experience the world. They yearn for answers, question reality, and want to know everything, literally. They are curious by nature and that stimulates their brains and enhances their creativity. This thirst for knowledge doesn’t disappear once we grow up, but it certainly can subside. You can encourage your curiosity if you never stop asking questions."
  5. sounds like an evolutionary thing. Imagine being a tribal human, the women around you are contributing members to the survival of the tribe. Then you get one pregnant. Now they have to slow down and eat more. The birth might kill them, you or she might get a disease for which you don't know the cure. Some other member of the tribe might be jealous and attack you. Now you have another mouth to feed that won't be able to contribute for many years and possibly one less able member.
  6. Here is another affirmation video focused on success ( I hope you succeed ) My subconscious receives positive affirmations with ease I am open to new ideas I am open to ideas that are good for me I empower my mind to act on positive messages I empower my mind to act on healthy messages I empower my mind to act on commands that are good for me My mind and body bond together and help each other My mind can do anything I want it to do My mind is healthy My body is healthy I reach all my goals I am always improving Every day I get better at what I do I am positive I am succeeding I am happy I am always successful I have confidence in what I want I have confidence in myself I trust my decisions I trust my feelings I sense who I can trust I can do any job well I succeed in anything I propose to I always exceed people's expectations I am strong I have strong conviction in my beliefs I resolve my doubts easily I resolve my doubts quickly People tend to trust me I am a positive thinker I have a positive attitude I have optimism I am perfect as I am There is NOTHING I can't do!

  7. This video can help strengthen your resolve when you are feeling doubtful. Think of it like weightlifting for the mind, when you use it daily over a period of time you will notice tangible shifts in your thinking. One of the beautiful things about it is that you don't have to rely on positive messages from other people when you have a resource like this. I am the beauty I am becoming I am authentic I am enjoying the journey being me I am being true to myself I am talented and inspired through my creativity I am who I am I know myself well and I live an authentic life I love who I am I surround myself with others I enjoy being with. I am present for others I open myself to receiving others who love me for who I am Being myself, others embrace me, and this makes me more of who I am I live an authentic life I am worthy, it’s who I am I keep true to myself I am honest with who I am and what I love I feel at ease being me I surround myself with authentic people I share my opinions with ease I am safe with who I am I am happy to show my true colors I am perfect with my imperfections I am surrounded by precious gifts that life has to offer I gift my gifts for others to share I live my life unapologetically I choose to wear clothes that feel good for me I allow others to live their lives for who they are I am rewarded with abundance from the Universe, by being true to who I am Moment by moment, I remain true to my values I let go of others with ease and grace, of those who no longer serve my authentic needs.
  8. Just followed this video, using just frankincense oil and found it very pleasant. Definitely moved up a level in relaxation. I've been using tapping over the last several days and have noticed a levity and peace come over me. seems to need regular application
  10. one little arrow to put into your quiver of wisdom: drinking alcohol interferes with sleep, even if one feels like they are asleep, the body is not reaching the essential restorative levels of sleep that one needs to thrive. THC, nicotine, and caffeine have the same effect. They can be used, just use caution when using them too close to bed. Learning, beauty, health, weight loss, and everything good are affected by sleep. It is one of the single most important things in life. and here is a song
  11. they are different i know the cure for ignorance, but I am not sure I know the cure for delusion
  12. nah, humans actually quite a few similarities to rats/mice which are studied extensively. But, an ignorant person wouldn't know that.
