The 30 Second Secret To Blasting Your Energy Levels Through The Roof

There is an underlying inner sleep system which the quality of your sleep and your daily energy levels highly depend on.

When your body produces feelings of “sleepiness” to send you a signal that you later interpret in a way like… “I feel tired, I better get to bed…”

Most people don’t know how to use this system to their advantage…

Your Body’s Natural Body Temperature Rhythm Plays A Key Role In How Much Energy You Have!

In grade 5 science class, most of us are taught that our body temperature stays at a constant 98.5 degrees Fahrenheit (36.6 Celsius). In reality, this is false. Your body temperature varies by about 6 degrees every day. This rise and fall of your body temperature is known as your body temperature rhythm, or as some like to call it your “circadian rhythm.”

Believe it or not, it’s this rise and fall of your body temperature that plays a major role in:
  • When you feel sleepy
  • When you feel energized.
When your temperature is dropping, you feel “sleepy” and more towards the “tired” side. This is like a cue for your body to create feelings of sleepiness.
When your body temperature is rising, you tend to feel energized, alert, relaxed, and more “awake”.

Quick method to blast your energiy levels:

95% of the times when you feel sleepy and tired during the day, it has nothing to do with how much you slept during the night (unless you are severely sleep deprived), how much sleep you need at that moment, or how much rest you need. 95% of the time when we feel tired, sleepy or lethargic is because our body temp. is dropping. And the body temp. falls usually due to one of the three reasons here:

1. After intense physical exercise.
2. After a long period of physical activity.
3. Right after being still or inactive for a long period of time.

The point is: Most of us mistake this drop of body temperature for the need to sleep. So we end up taking long naps, or rest and we actually lower our energy even more.

This is what you do:

 All you have to do is to reverse this body temperature. And the way to do that is to take a short 5-10 min. period of intense physical activity. This can be simple as going outside to play with your kids, going to play with the dog, taking a run around the block or just going away for fresh air or jumping up and down. In sum: get your body in motion.

Now, when we have an intense routine, with a lot of physical activity we will feel exhausted at the end of each day. This will rest the quantity of waking time and quality time in our lives. So instead of going straight to sleep at the end of a busy day, we can try out using this technique to raise our energy and drive in our lives.

Looking back to the walked road

Just for a moment of self indulgence

All the moments that are now gone

All the faces we saw, the arms that embraced us

Times when with raw spirits we opened our wings
And flew…

The friends we made and will never see again

The friends we made and will see one more time

The friends we made and will meet many times again

Times when with genuine innocence we opened our hearts

And loved…

The lovers we met and will never hold again

The lovers we met and will kiss one more time

The lovers we met and will continue with us for a lifetime

Just for a moment of self indulgence

Let me look back one more time

And walk through the roads I once walked

And meet the friends I once met

And hold the lovers I once held

And shed the tears I once shed

And smile the smiles I once smiled

I can move on now

Until I meet those friends

Until I hold those lovers

Until I realize: it was all a fantasy

And I meet you: the all

Ever heard about "Binaural beats"?

Binaural beats or binaural tones are auditory processing artifacts, or apparent sounds, the perception of which arises in the brain independent of physical stimuli. This effect was discovered in 1839 by Heinrich Wilhelm Dove. Dove discovered that when two sounds, that are similar but slightly shifted in frequency, are presented separately to the left and right ear (Binaural) they will cause a pulsation or beat type effect in the brain.

For example, if a pure tone of 400 Hz is presented to the right ear and a pure tone of 410 Hz is presented simultaneously to the left ear, an amplitude modulated standing wave of 10 Hz, the difference between the two tones, is experienced as the two wave forms mesh in and out of phase within the superior olivary nuclei.

The human auditory apparatus can hear sounds with a pitch as low as about 20Hz (Hertz = cycles per second), give or take a few Hertz. However, the frequency of brainwaves—particularly those associated with states of relaxation and sleep—can go much lower, even below 1Hz. So a recording of a sound at, say, 4Hz would be inaudible and would have no effect. However, if you pitch two sounds exactly 4Hz apart (say, one at 100Hz and the other at 104Hz) and play one in each ear, the brain “manufactures” a 4Hz beat.

EEG and the brain's state

The binaural-beat appears to be associated with an electroencephalographic (EEG) frequency-following response in the brain.

EEG (Electroencephalography) technology is used to measure brain's electrical vibrations from the surface of the scalp. The resulting EEG pattern will contain frequency elements mainly below 30Hz. The frequencies are categorized into four states as follows:

The dominant frequency in the EEG pattern determines what shall be called the current state of the brain. If the amplitude of the alpha range frequencies is highest, then the brain is said to be in the alpha stage.

Proven theories

"The subjective effect of listening to binaural beats may be relaxing or stimulating, depending on the frequency of the binaural-beat stimulation" (Owens & Atwater, 1995). Binaural beats in the delta (1 to 4 Hz) and theta (4 to 8 Hz) ranges have been associated with reports of relaxed, meditative, and creative states (Hiew, 1995), and used as an aid to falling asleep.

Binaural beats in the alpha frequencies (8 to 12 Hz) have increased alpha brain waves (Foster, 1990) and binaural beats in the beta frequencies (typically 16 to 24 Hz) have been associated with reports of increased concentration or alertness (Monroe, 1985) and improved memory (Kennerly, 1994).

Brainwaves have been found to mimic the effect of certain drugs:

Role of the Soul, function of the Mind

To understand how the superconscious (the soul) determines ultimately our reality I am going to use a metaphor.

Let us say that I am a successful business person. No, I am the most successful business person in the whole planet (mind me Mr. Gates). That means, I have enough wealth to assure the future of a large number of generations of my

One day, without announcement, I suddenly lose my memory: pum! vanished.

I wake up covered by the finest fabrics, in a room with enough space to fit a yacht and the sense of luxury that only the finest decoration could add. Observing the environment, I obviously conclude that I am a well-heeled person.

After a while, I am heading on to my daily business, disregarding the fact that I do not remember how I made this huge empire. I take my risks; continue investing here and there, just following the occasional hunches. I feel free to simply follow my intuition, and I succeed.

 Now, with this metaphor I can explain easily what I am heading on to.

 Our ultimate truth, is that our existence is guaranteed, and that our journey trough this physical plane is meant to be joyful, abundant and designed for our spiritual involvement. We are all born with a largest agenda, the agenda of our souls. To experience the expression of the highest image of ourselves.

We do not remember this though, because our True Identity and our Soul Agenda are matters of our souls, which we are not aware of all the time.

Any way, our living conditions (including environment, people, time and situations) are a sign post for our minds to know the natural road to take.

From time to time, through the experiencing of our lives, we get these “Soul-to-mind” direct messages, that we interpret as hunches, or intuition.

And if we get to make those communications a matter of priority, the domains of the Superconscious can be accesses. It is in here, that our truly creative nature is unleashed.

Earthly creatures, heavenly beings. Putting all together:

Our individuated selves are a part of a larger intelligence, and our superconscious minds are fully aware of that fact. At subconscious or even conscious level we might not be, but there is always an innate response we all human have to bond beyond imposed borders or labels of any kind.
As a natural expression of who we are, we do feel attracted toward each other and to a higher source of whatever kind. It is automatic, and no science can explain with exactitude how this happens. It happened in the Stone Age, when humans were said to worship the forces of nature, even when they could not understand what they were. It happened through our entire history, in every nation, no matter the creed. And it continues happening, it is fascinating how we are intuitively responsive to a larger truth. And in current times, when the outward commodities are of infinite number, worshipping divine forces without knowing why are we actually doing this, is not enough. We yearn to know what we are; who we are, why we are and how are we doing what we do.

 Can it be possible that we are not fully aware of our own truth? As individuals and as the collective? The soul (superconscious) is the integrating key.
It is the order in the chaos, eternity in the limited time, serenity in the madness, certainty in the fear.
The soul is what makes sense of everything we experience here on earth. It is what puts everything into context. The knowledge and the wisdom of every part, relative and absolute, past and present, doubt and certain, lays quiet in the soul. The subconscious mind keeps our magnificent instrument alive, the superconscious mind takes us beyond the world of sense perceptions, and the conscious mind is the tool to access it. We are earthly creatures, dwelling a perfect vehicle to be used with a single purpose: express our divine nature.
The grounds of the mind and beyond, is like a closed door that keeps secluded a Pandora’s Box. The studies are advancing and more is known now about us.
What in ancient times was considered outrageous theories is now part of the global library of scientific documentations.
The movement for a holistic view of the human existence is pushing its way to be considered and never ignored any more. Classic physics fails to explain accurately the whole impact of tiny elements interacting with each other, as that is what we actually are in fundamental nature. New trends of science are gaining force by raising our awareness to new perspectives and astonishing data.
It is our responsibility now, to become aware and open our minds. The need is compelling, for no one can ignore the magnitude and vastness of our existences. A regular life with regular perspectives is no longer enough, no matter how much we try to convince ourselves of the contrary. Deep inside we carry the immensity of the universe, and deep inside we know this.

Superconscious = Soul

In psychology the superconscious is the equivalent term to the soul, as used in spirituality and relating branches.
As I got to know, the superconscious is that part of us that is connected to the creator, to the divine, to the largest intelligence of the universe, or anything we might call it.
That part of us that is already everything it was originally meant to be.

“YOUR TRUE BEING, which is WHO YOU REALLY ARE, precedes everything.”

The "I Am That I Am" that transcends personality from lifetime to lifetime is the superconscious. It exists beyond the personality identity of the conscious and the genetically inborn collective unconscious. As Jung suggested, the superconscious is what the Hindu called the "higher" conscious. It communicates in synchronicity and intuition and is comprised of soul memory and past-life experiences. The "I Am That I Am" of the superconscious is the soul that transcends lifetimes.

Bodily wise, humans are known to share 99.99% of the same DNA with other human fellows. Do you think this is a coincidence? It takes only a peek inside our own cells to know what we really are. We are all the same, originally we are actually one. And furthermore, that sameness is the reproduction of what we are known to be at soul level (superconscious level): unity expressed in a single entity. The collective, individualized. A portion of divinity.
Like when you take a glass of water out of the sea, it appears to be just that: a glass of water. But if you analyze it, the composition is the same as its source. It is a portion of the sea in a container. So are we, as a figure of speech.

“The soul’s consciousness emerges from the soul’s State of Being. That is, One with everything, across all time and in every place.”

We are said to be on a journey thru a relative world. The term relative, meaning that everything exists in relation to something else.
Thus, time exists because space exists. Up exists because down exists. Light exists because darkness exists. Past exists because present exists. Birth exists because death exists.

Although, our ultimate reality is known to be absolute, that is, there are no experiences of opposites. Actually, there are no experiences, just a state of being.
There is no separation, there is no darkness, there is no death, there is no time.
And our souls are in that state of being: absolute, infinite, eternal, illuminated.
The current journey of our souls is just a passing among infinite chances that defy credibility. The experience of a soul is up to that soul, so whatever is held in sustained belief creates a perspective, which in turns is the direct cause of the experienced reality.
If the perspective is short, than the reality will be short. If the perspective is reduced to a life of birth, growth and death, than the reality will be experienced like that.

And that is what “the power of the mind” really means. By use of the mind we create a perspective that hold our entire experience of the reality we call “my life”.
If the mind is lowered to the level of subconscious reactions, the perspective is going to be reactive instead of deliberated, and the reality we will experience will be a series of random happenings and chaotic events.
If the mind is kept consciously aware, it can be trained to choose a perspective with a wider field of possibilities, and the reality we will experience will be more controlled.
Now, if the mind is raised to the level of the superconscious, the conscious mind can be used to access a state of being were the soul takes charge of every decision and outcome, and we will not be lost in “doing stuff” or struggling our way to get everything we want. We will use our minds to train itself to stop the compulsive thinking. To leave wider spaces for our minds to just BE still. And that will leave more space for the superconscious mind to infuse our minds with that larger intelligence that is the actual creator of realities.

Superconscious mind

I have come to the last of the three levels of consciousness that any given human being has. And for me, it is the most important one.

As I said before many times “what we hold in our minds is what we experience as real”. Thus what we believe is WHAT IS in our experience.
No one has the last word in what we experience, and not 2 experiences are the same.
Perspective is everything, and no one can convince us of a different perspective if it does not match our own. The choice of perspective is a personal and private matter.

Now, to understand what the superconscious mind is, we have to open our minds to have a larger picture of the experience we call life and leave disbelieve aside for a while. Later, you can decide as I said, if this truth matches your own.
I feel just as a tiny speck behind the grandness of God’s perfect plan. I don’t know if I can use the word “my” life anymore. Not even “life”, it makes me feel as if I am belittling the enormous, humongous reality. So I know that any description will always be but a slight resemblance of what actually is.

When I explained about the subconscious mind, and the mechanism behind that grand orchestra, I came into the same conclusion that many had: there is a largest intelligence in charge of our existences. During the renaissance time, the established theory among physicians was that “some spirits kept the body alive”. But the whole description of the human physiology was based more on religious assumptions than in the scientific method of direct observation and reproduction of mechanisms.

As this method delayed the advancement of science, the tendency turned into a more materialistic and pragmatic style, leaving a gap between mysticism and materialism. This trend became the foundations of modern science, thus the scientists are among the most skeptic observers and rational critics of spiritual matters. But not just them, this rationalization of facts have infected our entire cultural background with disbelieve.

Even though, when science has taken us into a never dreamed era of advancements, the methodical study and elucidation of the human body is still incomplete.
There are several grounds of our existences that remain unexplained. There are effects and events that startle and fascinate in the same time. There are scientific reports of mysterious happenings and incredible abilities of living humans.
Here the ground fails to be there for pragmatisms, and our intuition assisted by an open mind take the wheel.

New Year New Opportunities

Let me start the year with an ongoing awareness.
In another of my “flash-out-of the blue” insights, I pictured the coffin I drew above.

And the caption went like this:
There is not impossible situation in your present lifetime. Impossible is something you are making up.

When you are conceived, the word “impossible” is imprinted in the fertilized egg, your very original cell. Like guarded in a coffin, locked and than left buried deep within your DNA. That cell replicates to originate every cell that your body now has.
Thus you have the word, the idea of “impossible” literally imprinted in every cell of your body.
You might conclude than, that you are nothing but a victim of genetics. But that is not the case.

“Impossible” is something you are making up. Be it conditioned or not, aware or unaware. You see, you are neither your cells nor your body.
You are not even your mind or your soul. Who you are is not what you “THINK” you are.
And you have plenty of time to realize this fact, and also numerous reminders along the way. Can you see that your unawareness is something you choose? Not something that you can not help?

If you just hear once, just one time but fully, intentionally. Than you will never have to experience every “illusion” you have bought in to.

a shift of perspective (all about best sellers)

Watch this movie to awaken your inquisitive mind by meeting some scientists behind the quantum physic paradigm. It provides meaningful information about the biochemistry of emotion and the impact of thought on our daily life experience.

This book is a delightful scientific-shake.

For a deep understanding of the ego and its actual invalidating effects.

A beautifully written book that brings new insights on the matter of mind mechanics and superconscious awareness. The engine behind major life changes: why change occurs and how. It will at least prepare you to face change with a different stand.

An amazingly wise essay that gives us an idea of how old is actually the "theory of mind power". Written in 1902 by James Allen.

Beyond Reactive Thinking

Traditionally, a highly dynamic mind has been considered intelligent, inquisitive and profitable. But with the advocacy of ongoing neuroscientific, cognitive psychology and consciousness studies researches, the tendency towards “educating our minds” is been increasingly accepted.
The process of thinking is more and more acknowledged as a voluntary, intentional quality of our kind.
Thus, compulsive, or even helplessly hyperactive minds are considered to be a sign of untamed subconsciousness or dormant consciousness.

“As it is, I would say about 80 to 90 percent of most people's thinking is not only repetitive and useless, but because of its dysfunctional and often negative nature, much of it is also harmful. Observe your mind and you will find this to be true. It causes a serious leakage of vital energy.” 1

Helplessly hyperactive minds are a source of high level of stress. A forever talkative mind leaves very less space for purposeful and focused thinking, interferes with concentration and diverts attention.

“Thinking and consciousness are not synonymous. Thinking is only a small aspect of consciousness. Thought cannot exist without consciousness, but consciousness does not need thought.
Enlightenment means rising above thought, not falling back to a level below thought, the level of an animal or a plant. In the enlightened state, you still use your thinking mind when needed, but in a much more focused and effective way than before. You use it mostly for practical purposes, but you are free of the involuntary internal dialogue, and there is inner stillness. Only in that way is it possible to think creatively, because only in that way does thought have any real power. Thought alone, when it is no longer connected with the much vaster realm of consciousness, quickly becomes barren, insane, destructive”.2

The art of deliberate thinking

With the fast developing of science, the understanding of the mind processes has extensively advanced. The role of “mind over matter” is now more accepted with the introduction of new evidences. Reality as we perceive it is said to be not only affected by “the observer”; but also created by a complex process that involves high states of consciousness and thinking. 3

There are experiments that attest that our consciousness influences others, material goods, and our future in a co creative manner. 4 It does not matter if we believe in this fact, it still happens whether we believe in it or not. 5
That is the premises of the so called “Law of attraction”, which was introduced as early as 1902, by the physicist John Ambrose Fleming, and continued all the way through history until present days.

The number of statements is large, and the contemporary counsel show a regular trend towards training the mind to be the tool it was originally meant to be. By an endless number of methods and systems, the mind can be re-educated to be purposeful and disciplined in the pursuit of a higher level of intelligence. That is to raise the level of awareness by means of a more effective use of the mental processes.
