If You Feel Better, Your Brain Performs Better

It has been said that through meditation, you are able to calm not only your body but your mind as well. It may sound too difficult to try, however, there are ways to make meditation as simple as possible. This article for those who are hesitant to meditate because of the perception that meditation is a difficult process. It may be true that in order to perfect your meditation skills you need to practice it for years, however, you can still begin with the simplest relaxation techniques. This will surely make you feel better, your brain relaxed a little and your whole being is rejuvenated.

Meditation is a good way to reduce stress; and as you all know, we can think better if we are not stressed. As many researches have pointed out, you can suffer from brain damage if you are exposed to constant stress. Now, isn’t meditation just the right boost to your brain power?
Through mediation, your concentration will be strengthened, thus you can fully focus on any mental activity that you are working on. So you should learn to control your mind and use it efficiently for your own goals, do this by starting with breath techniques moving further to simple meditation.

Breath Watching

Find a spot where you can sit and relax comfortably. There, give close attention to your breathing for a few seconds. Basically, you just have to clear your mind for a moment and have a quiet time on your own. Here are a few tips to assist you.

1) Find your spot

Since you are only a beginner, you may want to find a quiet place where you can meditate. As you become more expert in meditation, you will notice that you can already meditate anywhere you want to. For the mean time, find a spot where you can feel at peace.

2) Be comfortable

Look for your position which will keep you at ease but not asleep. For most people, crossing their legs is their meditation position. If you are the kind of person who can lie down without falling asleep, you may also try lying down for this may be your most comfortable position. Just keep yourself perfectly still and comfortable but not asleep – this should be your meditation position.

3) Let Go of the Tension

Observe which part of your body is most tensed. You should learn how to tense up those parts and then release the tension in such part. You may experience the release as your body begins to be drained from all the tension. If you repeat the process, you will later on learn how to relax easily.

4) Breathe properly

Breathe properly through your nose. In doing so, the air can easily pass through your lungs. You may notice that your diaphragm, abdomen and chest expand more when you breathe through your nose. This is how you should breathe.

5) Pay attention

There may be instances when your mind may be disturbed by other thoughts, but you should always remind yourself to go back into paying special attention to your breathing. With constant reminder, the thoughts that may disturb you will soon fade away.

You may want to perform this meditation for at least five minutes. And then as you practice it more and more each day, you may want to perform it for a longer time. You should then be able to realize that these meditations can really help you clear your mind and increase your focus. By feeling better, your brain also performs better.

"Why Do Some Affirmations *Work* - and Others Don't?" - By Jeff Staniforth

"Why Do Some Affirmations *Work* - and Others Don't?"
- By Jeff Staniforth

By definition, an affirmation is a statement repeated time and
again either verbally or mentally -- or written down. The words
of the affirmation statement - in themselves -when spoken,
thought of, or written *without* a pictorial (visualized) or
emotional connection -- make a very weak affirmation.

Affirmations, when worded correctly -- and when emotionally
charged - are able to tap into the unlimited creative power of
your subconscious mind
, and manifest your desires.

Affirmations are not all created equal.  Some are, of course,
better than others.  There are *power affirmations* that have
been proven again and again to work - and I'll reveal some of
them in a moment.

When you examine the structure of these power affirmations, you,
too, can learn how to create your own powerful affirmations for
your specific purposes.

Consider the following:

"I am what I choose to be."
"All my needs are met instantaneously."
"I love and accept myself exactly as I am."
"_____________ comes to me easily and effortlessly."
(Fill in the blank with what you desire.)
"I am now perfectly healthy in body, mind and spirit."
"I now create my wonderful, ideal life."

What do the above power affirmations have in common?

1) They're stated in the present tense.

An affirmation is more effective when stated in the present
tense. For example; "I now have a wonderful job." Avoid affirming
something in the future tense, e.g. "I am going to have a
wonderful job" or the results will always be waiting to happen.

2) They express a positive statement.

Affirmations need to be stated in the most positive terms
possible.  Avoid negative statements.  Affirm what you do want,
rather than what you don't want. For example: "I am no longer
sick." This is a negative statement.  Instead, affirm:  "I am now
perfectly healthy in body, mind and spirit." This statement is
much more powerful as it is positive and reinforces your desired
goal and doesn't confuse your subconscious mind with the mention
of the undesirable condition.

3) They're short and specific.

Short affirmations are easy to say, and have a far greater impact
at the subconscious level than those which are long and wordy.
Keeping them specific and to the point adds power as the idea is
uncluttered by extraneous elements.

The mechanics that make affirmations powerful are:

* Repetition
The importance of repetition cannot be overemphasized. It
imprints the affirmation into your subconscious mind.

* Emotions
Get involved, be passionate, and use your emotions. Think
carefully about the meaning of the words as you repeat them
rather than just writing, typing or saying them.

* Persistence
Practicing affirmations with persistence achieves results much
sooner than practicing them periodically.  Successive sessions
will have a compounding effect.

* Belief
You don't necessarily have to believe your affirmation initially,
in order for it to work.  Belief will grow with your forthcoming
successes. What you do need is the ability to *feel* what it
would be like when the desire you're affirming is fulfilled, or
your need met. Every time that you have a need -- and that need
is met -- a certain "feeling" is produced in you.  You need to
evoke that same feeling when you state your affirmation. In other
words, you need to feel with every fiber of your being that what
you desire has already happened.  Without this feeling, your
affirmation is powerless.

* Impress Yourself
Personalize your affirmations. They must *resonate* with you --
feel right for you. The stronger your connection with the
affirmation, the deeper the impression it makes on your mind, and
the sooner you will experience positive results.

So there you have it - the simple formula for creating
affirmations that work.  Based on the above, you can easily
create your own affirmations to manifest any desire or need you
have in life.

TIP: Although the practice of affirmations is easy, some people
find it challenging to repeat the affirmations continuously while
maintaining the highly charged emotional state necessary in
making affirmations work.  DID YOU KNOW... that you can use your
computer to make the affirmation process effortless - and that
you can automate those challenging aspects (such as maintaining
highly charged emotions), and thereby, manifest your desires more
quickly? Go to Affirmware to find out

How To Maximize Motivation

Recently people have been using something new to enhance their levels of motivation, and are reporting brilliant results.

Do you sometimes struggle to stay motivated? Perhaps you find it difficult to do things you don't really want to - eating right, working out regularly, studying math, perhaps you find it difficult to get motivated at work?

Sometimes we are more motivated than others. A common scenario is that you make plans to start a new project - whether it be a diet, an exercise routine, taking up a new hobby . In the first place your are hyped up, enthusiastic, and eager to get started. You feel supercharged basically and things start off well. The end result is vivid in your mind and the excitement drives your motivation - whatever it is; a flat tummy, or a pay rise, or a high grade in an exam.

However, as time goes on the project is no longer new, it is not exciting anymore, and progress is slower. You find yourself becomming less and less motivated.

What if we could stay motivated - maintain that higher level of buzz and drive we have at the start of a new project right throughout - well this can be a reality!

More and more people are turning to subliminal audio as a tool to help increase levels of increase your levels of motivation and stop procrastination before it gets any worse.

Subliminals used to be quite rare, and not fully understood, but they are quite simple really. They basically work as a mild form of hypnosis, and instead of entering a trance the subliminal messages reach your subconscious mind naturally - without you even being aware of them.

You'll never hear any audible phrases because they are moved to a higher audio frequency which only your subconscious mind can intercept. Then it processes them and stores them exactly like it would with any other information, gradually the subliminal statements really start to build within your subconscious mind and gradually make lasting changes to your self beliefs and perceptions - and in this instance to how naturally motivation comes.

Some people will advise you all sorts about subliminal messaging, about how it works and how it needs to be used, but it is no more complicated than that basically.

Subliminal audio is especially good at making changes to motivation. It is because motivation is essentially goverened by our subconscious mind - if you are motivated in one area you'll be able to make use of that into all other areas of your life, so by adjusting the subconscious mind on a deep level you reprogram your base levels of motivation and this spills over inot all areas of your life.

The Universal Law Behind the Golden Rule by Tony Mase

In Chapter 7 of the book of Matthew, Jesus is quoted as
"Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do
to you, do ye even so to them; for this is the law and the
When Jesus made this statement, he wasn't just teaching his
followers a religious rule...
He was teaching his followers the *practical* application of
a Universal law.
This Universal law is known by many names:
The law of cause and effect...
The law of karma...
The law of sowing and reaping...
Are just a few of them.
In his writings, Wallace D. Wattles, best known for his
classic masterpiece "The Science of Getting Rich",
frequently refers to it as the law of action and reaction...
For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
Odds are you've heard this Universal law expressed in many
different ways:
Energy always returns to the source of its origination...
What goes around comes around...
What you do comes back to you...
You reap what you sow...
My personal favorite:
It always comes back to bite you in the...
You know the rest. :-)
Regardless of how this Universal law is expressed...
The bottom line is...
Whatever you put out into the Universe comes back to you.
More importantly...
Because it's a law...
Whatever you put out into the Universe *always* comes back
to you.
This is the way the Universe works.
When you look at it this way, it puts Jesus' words in a
whole new light, doesn't it?
Practicing the Golden Rule, as it's come to be known as,
isn't just the moral thing to do, or the right thing to
It's the *smart* thing to do!
Because it's the law...
If you cheat others, you *will* be cheated.
If you hate others, you *will* be hated.
If you hurt others, you *will* be hurt.
If you judge others, you *will* be judged.
If you steal from others, you *will* be stolen from.
If you take advantage of others, you *will* be taken
advantage of.
If you treat others rudely, you *will* be treated rudely.
On the other hand...
If you forgive others, you *will* be forgiven.
If you help others, you *will* be helped.
If you love others, you *will* be loved.
If you treat others fairly, you *will* be treated fairly.
If you treat others honestly, you *will* be treated
If you treat others kindly, you *will* be treated kindly.
For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction...
Whatever you put out into the Universe always comes back to
You can't escape it...
It's the law!
One thing that's *very* important to understand...
When Jesus said:
"Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do
to you, do ye even so to them; for this is the law and the
He was *not* saying this because others, themselves, will
"do unto you" what you have done unto them.
Jesus was saying this because the Universe, God or whatever
you prefer to call the "Universal Power" behind all things,
will "do unto you" what you have done unto others!
For example...
If you steal something from someone, it doesn't necessarily
mean that particular person will steal something from you.
You *will* be stolen from.
It's not a matter of "if"...
It's just a matter of when and how!
On the other hand...
If you treat someone honestly, it doesn't necessarily mean
that particular person will treat you honestly.
You *will* be treated honestly.
It's not a matter of "if"...
It's just a matter of when and how!
Because it's the law...
It's the way the Universe works.
The next time you're about to do something...
That involves other people...
Ask yourself this very simple question:
Would I want someone else doing this to me?
If your answer is yes...
Do it.
If your answer is no...
It's that simple.
Practicing the Golden Rule...
Doing unto others as you'd have them do unto you...
Treating others as you'd like to be treated...
Isn't just the moral thing to do, or the right thing to
It's the *smart* thing to do!
Tony Mase is a serious student of the works of Wallace D.
Wattles and the publisher of the "Jesus: The Man and His Work"
