Self Help is something we should all be working on consistently and always.  Growing is part of who we are.  Mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually.  Becoming the best person we can be should be an everyday focus, goal and achievement.  As we continue to build our better “us” we will list and share finds online that help with doing just that. 

Fireflies & Your Brain: How to Light Up Your Life

Imagine, you’re sitting atop a grassy knoll.

The sun has just set. Then, just as night begins to fall, it happens.

First here. Then, over there. A brief flicker of magic lighting up the sky in little bio-luminescent bursts.

It’s the dance of the firefly.

This evening ritual is well known to many. But, did you know also know the firefly may hold a key to unlocking your brain’s unlimited potential?

You’re Getting Sleepy! Waking Up to the Truth About Hypnosis

Read a Good Book Lately: Then, Welcome to Hypnosis!

If you’ve ever lost yourself while reading a really good book, you’ve already been thisclose to hypnosis.

When you’re really into a book what happens?

  1. a) You feel incredibly relaxed,

  2. b) Have an amplified sense of imagination, and

  3. c) You are highly suggestible (more open to receiving and acting upon the suggestions of others, like the story the author is telling you).

Guess what? This is exactly what happens during hypnosis. It’s known as a trance state.

 

What Hypnosis Can Do for You

Hypnosis – huh – what is it good for? Absolutely anything.

That might be a slight exaggeration, but the truth is that hypnosis is being used more and more regularly to treat a wide range of conditions. Apart from its well-known benefits to help people quit smoking, lose weight, gain confidence, and a host of other self-help issues, the practice is gaining wider acceptance in the treatment of illness and disease.

One of the problems with hypnosis is the word itself. It’s been hyped to the max in Hollywood movies and the like, when in reality hypnosis is nothing like that. Hypnotizing someone by asking them to look into your eyes as you swing a pocket watch back and forth will be about as effective – and as successful – as asking your bank manager for a loan you don’t have to pay back.

Subliminal Messages: Fact or Fiction?

Get ready for a shock, a statement that might blow your mind and send you reeling in disbelief:

Subliminal messages work!

Despite some bad press to the contrary, evidence exists that proves subliminal messages can be an effective way to achieve a range of goals under certain controlled conditions. If you want them to work for you, here’s what you need to know: 

Subliminal Messages: How Do They Work?

You’ve probably heard of subliminal messages. There are lots of urban myths about how companies and advertisers use these kinds of messages to persuade customers to act in certain ways. The truth is, however, that subliminal messages won’t make you do or feel anything you’re not already inclined to do or feel. And, ironically, that’s what makes them such effective and powerful self-development tools.

The word “subliminal” is made up of two parts: sub, which means under or below (as in submarine) and liminal, which means threshold (as in the word limit). These kinds of messages are therefore presented “below the threshold” of your conscious mind. So even though you aren’t aware of the information, your subconscious mind picks it up and locks it away in your brain.

The Meditation Hack That Saves You 70,000 Hours

“Exploring the brainwave hack that turns you into a Zen monk – in minutes.”By Karl Moore

We’ve all heard about the powerful benefits of meditation: Less stress, greater relaxation, sharper thinking, improved memory, enhanced creativity, and more.Yet how many of us have experienced this for ourselves?

Meditation holds some amazing benefits for those that practice it routinely. Since the 1970s, there have been over 3000 scientific studies at over 200 independent universities, all validating the life-changing gains of regular meditation.

The problem is that reaching the states that bring about such powerful benefits takes time.

You need to invest hours in weekly practice. Months of training as you learn to slowly quieten the mind, suppress the itching, and slowly progress into deeper and deeper states of meditation.

But what if there was a ‘hack’ you could use to quickly achieve those deep, profound states – all within just minutes? Science has the answer.
