  1. looking at this from a very cynical devil's advocate sort of way, I just see universal human traits here.
  2. @Michael569 It is a great book, but a bitter pill to swallow. One of the most important books I have read in recent times. It explains so much about one's self and also the people around you.
  3. It is probably more accurate to say eye movement instead of emdr. But, it is similar to emdr It is hard to say, as I am testing dozens of things, just what is causing a breakthrough. I would say allow it to happen, or decide to do it. But it seems the winning combination with this protocol is morning time + good headphones+ tapping+ affirmations+ eye movement. I've had a few beautiful breakthroughs doing this
  4. "Two brilliant minds are together again for a discussion of the nature of our reality, with a bright and beautiful host! A winner! There is a great connection between Tom Campbell and Bruce Lipton. We are both “on the same sheet of music” says Tom. Love is the conclusion of both of these scientists’ decades of research. And that is good news for the world! Dr Bruce Lipton is a vibrant, generous and caring individual who has expressed respect for Tom’s work and how well it fits with his own extensive research in biology and beyond. Bruce says of Tom, “his words are wonderful truth.” It’s time for a bigger picture, and many scientists are now on board with Tom’s MBT theory! Want world peace? As Tom has said here and many times, “The world is a reflection of us.” A peaceful solution begins with the individual’s journey."
  5. Something that I feel compelled to share is that I have been incorporating light emdr with these sessions and I find that it increases my sensitivity both to the tapping and to the affirmations. Just 20 seconds of back and forth eye movement and my sensitivity, and thus the effectiveness of the session went up. This explains why the subconscious programming works well at night because the body naturally goes through rapid eye movement, in fact this is considered one the most restorative aspects of sleep. If I ever get my hands on some really comfortable headphones, I will try it while sleeping based on this information.
  6. This morning I listened to this while using eft tapping in the beginning and it transformed my morning from mundane to wonderful. https://bebrainfit.com/tapping-anxiety-benefits/ The cool thing about gratitude is that it infuses everything, so I appreciated my shoes, my chair, my drink, my hands, everything. before listening to it, I did not. @non_nothing Thanks for posting this, I watched this video about a year ago, and it informs my understanding of affirmations. I think this will be helpful for those just starting, I might start posting this whenever I post an affirmations video from now on. Thank you again. I am interested in exploring this area more. In fact I intend to listen to another affirmations video while tapping before the day ends.
  7. "Lens of Truth A magic lens that reveals hidden wonders. Use it to see the truth beneath an illusion." — TBD (Ocarina of Time 3D) "The Shadow will yield only to one with the eye of truth handed down in Kakariko Village." — TBD (Ocarina of Time 3D) "I can hear the spirits whispering in this room... "Look for the eye of truth..." That's what they are saying!" — Navi (Ocarina of Time) "A long time ago... There was a man in this very village who had an eye they said could see the truth! Now usually, you have to train your mind's eye most strenuously to actually see the truth... But this fella, no, they say he had a different way of doing things... His house stood where the well is now..." — Old Man in Kakariko (Ocarina of Time) "You found the Lens of Truth! Set it to (C) and press (C) to look through it! Mysterious things are hidden everywhere! Be sure to try to use it outside of the well. Seeing the truth will cost magic power, so press (C) again to stop using it." — N/A (Ocarina of Time) "I shall take to the air now, flying toward that shrine across the way, so follow behind me. Do not be daunted by appearances. Instead, let your feelings guide you, and the true path shall open before you. Are you ready? Follow behind me!" — Kaepora Gaebora (Majora's Mask) "......... Can it be? Are you able to see me? If you truly can see me, then follow behind me..." — Darmani the Third (Majora's Mask) "I'm shocked. You're the first person who's ever spoken to me. I've been here for many years, waving my arms around and asking for help, but everyone ignores me and passes me by. It's 'cause I'm about as impressive as a stone, right?...I'm used to it, though." — Shiro (Majora's Mask) https://zelda.gamepedia.com/Lens_of_Truth
  8. @moon777light You might get a kick out of this
  9. WIth affirmations, I tend to inquire about the statements being made. So if the statement is "I am authentic" I will look at it and kind of say silently "am I authentic?" Then I look of an example in my life of where it is true and I can say, ah yes, awesome. If there is an example of where I am not authentic I become hyper-aware of it. It does not solve it automatically, but It can bring it into awareness. This is very subtle stuff here with affirmations. To me and along with knowledge, they are only good insofar as they help you make better decisions. I am not a fan of knowledge for knowledge's sake. They are only a catalyst, the real power is within you. @moon777light Also careful with getting too hyped about a product you have not thoroughly tried yet. It is a recipe for disappointment.
  10. "It’s been reported that matcha contains up to 5 times more l-theanine than other teas. (57) Matcha also contains more caffeine. Here’s how the caffeine content of matcha and other teas compare (per 8 ounce serving): (58) Matcha tea — 70 mg Black tea — 42 mg White tea — 28 mg Oolong tea — 27 mg Green tea — 25 mg" https://bebrainfit.com/l-theanine-benefits/
  11. “Our brains replay every painful memory from the past and every possible scary scenario from the future over and over, just like a complex computer simulation, in an attempt to scare us away from threats before they can happen and regardless of the probability of their happening at all.” ― Mo Gawdat, Solve For Happy: Engineering Your Path to Uncovering the Joy Inside You I really got a lot out of reading this book.
