Achievement Through The Power Of Your Word

By Paul A Philips

There are indeed certain establishments offering various designer plans and products for you as a customer. For examples you can have designer clothes, designer kitchens or designer jewellery… Well, how about designer life? It could be said that in the self-help, self-growth or self-improvement (whatever you call it) categories you can have what could be called ‘designer life.’

One sure-fire way to designer life; a way of designing a life for fulfilment with all the necessary conditions of satisfaction is by achievement through the power of your word. Just how committed could you be to being a person of your word? Would you be prepared to stay up all night to get something done because you said you would..?

Words not only exist to say what and how you’ll accomplish something by a certain time they also create a context in which to view that target for achievement.

Let me clarify this by explaining with an inspiring analogy!

Three builders seen chipping away with their tools at some stones were approached by a man who asked each one ‘what are you doing?’

Curtly, the first man replied ‘I’m trying to hammer this stupid rock into a shape…’ unhappily, checking his watch, waiting for 5 o’clock home time…

Showing more interest than the first the second man said hammering away carefully ‘I’m shaping this rock so that it will fit into the other rocks to make a wall… I don’t mind working here but I’ll be glad when it’s over with and home time…’

Zealously, the third man hammered away at a granite block, some small pieces flew off… Happy with the outcome, that he had achieved what he said he would accomplish at this stage and within the timeframe, he then replied gazing up with pride and enthusiasm ‘I’m building a great cathedral.’

Three men with different attitudes and approaches with the same job to do…

-Going back to what I said earlier: ‘Words not only exist to say what and how you’ll accomplish something by a certain time they also create a context in which to view that target for achievement.’

As in the case of the third man this illustrates how the power of your word can be used to not only hold yourself accountable to achieve a target time but also create a context, a way of seeing your tasks that make them really worth doing.

-So what are you building in your life? Are you building a cathedral? Does your designer purpose in life really inspire you to do things..?

How Focussing On The Negative Can Transform Your Life!

By Paul A Philips

It always amuses me when I hear people labelling something as ‘negative’ with all its connotations. As if the negative is something to be ignored or dismissed. Do these people, especially some of those new agers think that negative things will all go away if ignored? That by focussing on the positive will bring about a complete turnaround? What about the old adage, what you resist will persist..?

No. Labelling, invalidating or dismissing something merely as negative may mean that you have missed the point: For example, if I told you that your kitchen is on fire, would you then turn to me and say something in the way of “Oh, you’re talking so negatively. I was happy until now…” Of course you wouldn’t say something so absurd. No, instead you’d try and do something about it. Let’s say you’d race into your kitchen and instinctively try and put out the fire. After putting out the fire, say it was caused by a frying pan with oil; you would indeed then thank me for putting your attention on this.

-The point I’m making here is that many things going on in the world related to unfairness, injustice, greed, lies and deception… will continue until humanity focuses on this inhumanity and seriously does something about it.

Many of these things have got this way because of people’s stand down behaviour, ignorance and apathy… As Einstein said in so many words; the world’s full of danger and the most dangerous people are those who do nothing about it. It’s not just a case of ‘getting off one’s backside…’ but also a discerning ability is needed and to listen to the heart.

Deep inside you have an inner voice coming from your inner being. When this inner voice talks to you it says do something with your life. That inner voice can be quite specific, related to, say, doing things that contribute to others, turning things around related to those negative connotations; unfairness, injustice, greed, lies and deception…

The same above principle applies in relationships. A sudden realization of the negative and a willingness to confront is an opportunity for making the necessary changes for a turnaround.

Negativity is just an interpretation of what’s occurring out there for you. Negativity either controls you or you control it. Given certain situations, which one will it be for you?

Do things have to be perceived as negative? No, you have a choice. Choice is part of what makes you human. In many cases, you have the choice of, instead of instead perceiving something as negative, get it on the level that everything is just the way it IS.

Is-ness is the key: Ultimately there is no such thing as positive or negative. Everything is just the way it is. This observer mode viewpoint can put you in an empowering way of being.

-This is how focussing on the negative can transform your life!

Creating A Vitally Needed Humanitarian Future For You, Your Family and Friends

By Paul A Philips

Now, let me put you on the spot here. What sort of future would you like to see for you, your family and friends? More specifically, what could you do to make it happen?

A real future is not a mere projection of what’s to come: Take the saying ‘our children are the future.’ Yes, of course that’s true but we live in a world where our children are indoctrinated by the same things as their parents when they were growing up. With the same ideas, habits, viewpoints… the result is not a real future but merely a projection in time of the past, hence the saying ‘same old same old…’

A real future is based on creativity, new ideas, different behavioural patterns and viewpoints… that take us away from a mere projection of the past…

-In short, how could you create a humanitarian future not based on the past, but a future based on the future?

What are the qualities needed to create this real future?

1. Creativity

Creativity doesn’t just mean the ability to bring something new into existence, into being, thinking ‘outside of the box…’ You may be brilliant at this but often, there are other qualities needed to accompany creativity such as having the courage to take the risks to move forward with what you’ve created. Then there’s the ability to convince and confront people if they don’t see what you see or try to invalidate your creative vision…

2. Context

When you’ve created something what does it mean to you? Whether it’s for you, your family or friends, acting on something that means such a lot to you can indeed make all the difference in the world when it comes to being geared up for achievement. This is why the creation of context is so important: So, what’s your passion? What calls, moves and inspires you?

3. Commitment

Just how committed are you to making something happen? What are your intentions, plans of action, strategies, targets… would you be prepared to stay up all night to get a job done..?

4. Being a person of your word

An absolutely crucial ingredient for your success in achievement is to be a person of your word. How else do you expect to accomplish anything?! Live in a word-based world and you have the keys to success. Be specific and measureable when you state your targets for accomplishment: I will achieve X by time Y. This will indeed confirm that you would have done it.

5. Communication

Communication brings together what you’ve created and how it can be achieved. There are 3 things that come into play here. They are:

1. What you’ve created (destiny, projects, targets…)

2. Fulfilment and

3. That which brings the first 2 together; the area of communication.

All in all

Currently humanity is experiencing the throes of birth pains. The same goes for our Mother Earth. Many people feel it, that something is not right but don’t know why: We as a race are undergoing major changes that will take us into a new paradigm experience where the world will be a much better place. How long will it be before this happens, nobody knows.

-So, here’s my appeal to you. To get involved in creating something that contributes to that vitally needed humanitarian future for you, your friends and family. Maybe you have a knowledge or level of expertise or great interest in an area that you could share with the world and contribute to humanity?

-Seeing this as an opportunity exactly what could you create here?

Alleged Paedophilia Political and Royal: An Opportunity In Disguise For A Turnaround?

By Paul A Philips

We know there have been repeated failures to come up with a suitable investigatory panel needed to look into alleged historical child abuse at Westminster involving senior politicians. The UK has a population of around 60 million and you tell me that a small handful of suitable trustworthy and competent individuals can’t be found to investigate!?

-The allegations deeply steeped in evidence have basically been ignored, suggesting the whole thing stinks to high Heaven of cover-up and is a conspiracy of silence.

More bombshell claims

More recently we have an alleged child sex abuse scandal with a girl and The Duke of York Prince Andrew. The girl claims that the abuse was forced on her though Andrew’s friend and associate billionaire convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein. Although Prince Andrew emphatically denies the allegations this is not the first time a royal family member has been implicated in a scandal of this nature.

There was for instance the child hunting parties implicating European royal family members. Following the trial in 2011 at the International Common Law Court of Justice in Brussels, those claimed to have been sexually abused and survived the alleged ritual murders from the hunting practices did not have a voice to stand up against the mighty royals who were able to make the whole thing disappear as it was only based on allegation…

As for the Prince Andrew allegation many are saying that the truth will never come to light, like other alleged crimes such as the claim that Princess Diana was murdered implicating royals as perpetrators.

Further, it has been put forward that we are not living in a democracy. That the Queen is the head of the UK government and MI5 which in effect means she has the power to make the allegations related to Prince Andrew blow away. When the MI5 counter intelligence and security service is controlled like this then that makes the monarchy a law unto them self. They have the power to intervene in major political decisions…

They are protected from public scrutiny through exemption from the ‘freedom of information act.’ Then they’re able to manipulate public discourse through controlling mainstream media, like the vetoing of BBC programming.

-Such is the royal family’s power.

The idea of ruling royals, the divine right to rule goes back centuries. It is based on the idea that the ruling royals are chosen through the will of God and the people have no say. Should we have to put up with this archaic undemocratic and inequality-based nonsense?

An opportunity for a major turnaround?

Regarding the circumstances surrounding the alleged political and royal paedophilia, don’t make the mistake that these events are merely negative. Yes, it has been said that certain individuals in high places are getting away with the abuse or even murder of children. Anyone complicit in this such as the police having made no arrests could be said to be protecting these murderers. But these awful circumstances could be an opportunity for a major turnaround if we-the-people keep on questioning demand justice and don’t let it blow away.

Since the Jimmy Savile revelation the public are indeed finding out just how deep the rabbit hole runs with people in high places related to this with all the implications. As with other revelations of this kind it seems okay to uncover dead people but what about those still living and continuing to get away with it?!

As, however, the growing number of people demand that we get answers in the name of human rights and secure justice, in time, could this could turn into something overwhelming making the establishment cover ups futile? Could this be the key to reducing the establishment to rubble and usher in the beginning of a new paradigm?

Maybe in time this will not be as pie-in-the-sky as it may seem to some.

The New Year and Why ‘Peaceful Activism’ Has Never Been So Needed

By Paul A Philips

As the New Year begins there has never been a time when peaceful activism has been needed more. Slowly but surely, the walls surrounding continue to draw in, further restricting our freedom as a race. However, as more and more people are indeed waking up to the realization that they’ve been greatly deceived this brings with it conscious (or unconscious) intentions to create a world totally different to the dark agenda planned by the hidden powers that be.

So what exactly does ‘peaceful activism’ mean? We know that laws have been made and will continue to be introduced further restricting our freedom of expression in terms of the right to protest and demonstrate against injustice. However, peaceful activism by definition will not allow us to be hampered by this.

Peaceful activism means

1. Spreading the word on how our freedom is greatly restricted.

Take your pick: Politics, media, health, business, banking, finance, the military, religion, the entertainments industry, history, ancient history, science and technology… just about every subject on planet Earth involves a major deception. If you have an area of specialist knowledge then in the name of freedom I strongly urge you to spread the word on the deceptions related to this.

2. Consistently doing your inner work

Philosophers of ancient and modern times have been going on about it. It’s packaged and presented under many different guises in the world of self-help or self- improvement… I’m talking about the universal laws of attraction.

In summary, the universal laws of attraction imply that what you create within will in turn reflect the world about you. ‘Like attracts like,’ by focussing within on the world you would like to see based on freedom, love, peace and justice… then this will in turn manifest.

Be it through thoughts, meditation, prayers, and visualizations… whatever it takes, if we-the-people concentrate in numbers on these things then we will affect the outcome synergistically, taking us away from these darkening times and into the light.

3. …being consistent and persistent with the above in a peaceful manner

Remember, rioting on the streets, damaging property and getting angry means losing your integrity and as the laws of attraction demonstrate that this will only create a world of further negativity…

Overall

It does matter what you say and what you do. You can make a difference. Consider yourself in the analogy as someone casting a pebble out onto a large and still pond. That pebble when it makes contact with the pond will cause water ripples of ’cause and effect’ that will continue pushing out far and wide…

Do it for humanity, your family and friends.

Do it for the children of the world to be.

Are You Stuck In A Rut Like The Rest Of The Human Race?

By Paul A Philips

Ever get those momentary twinges of the here-we-go-agains reminding you your life is in a rut? The whole of humanity is stuck in a rut. Yes, humanity has been stuck for generations. Reality’s holographic nature demonstrates that if we are individually intrinsically stuck, reflecting the microcosm, then this will in turn reflect the bigger picture, the macrocosm, how we are stuck in our ways on the group planetary population level…

It’s not just about the changes needed to take us out of this long withstanding rut. The human race needs to wake up to the profound realization that there’s a planetary crisis and engage in making the necessary changes needed for our survival: Let’s talk about thriving at a later date!

How do we go beyond this apparently endless hopeless state we’ve been in as a race for so many generations and triumphantly move on?

Could the answer lie in what keeps us stuck?

Like that caged pet hamster we’ve been running inside the wheel going nowhere fast for far too long. We’re stuck on just about everything under the sun! We only need to avert ourselves of our blind spots and look at the big picture to find this out. Here’s a list of some of those things we as a race have been deceptively stuck on over the centuries.

Money and Religion

I have put money and religion together since in many ways they go hand in hand. The invention of the monetary system by the ruling elite has served to enslave the human race on the physical level. While the other mind control programme religion enslaves us on the spiritual.

Money

Money as an enslavement is more so now than ever when considering the extent of the banks’ debt-based monetary system. So, essentially you have a planet full of people made up of poverty, debt, wage and consumerism tail-chasing slaves…

Religion

Originally, humans wanted to find ways in which to address what they didn’t understand; spirituality and their relationship with the spiritual and God. Then came along the shamans, prophets and priests acting as spiritual guides… However, certain people in high places soon realized that religions could be used as a mind controlling tool to enslave the masses for power, profit and political gain.

Religion, because of its mind controlling has become potentially very dangerous. -Atheism, the antithesis of religious fundamentalism can also be described as a by-product of religious mind control. Atheists don’t realize they too have been manipulated: Atheism is the ‘no religion’ religion.

Education

Millions of dollars had been poured into education by the world’s ruling elite with their organizations such as the Carnegie Foundation and Rockefeller Institute. The purpose? To produce a system that basically serves to indoctrinate the masses from the beginning in infants’ schools then right through to the end at Universities.

With its carefully selected curriculum, after someone completes their education they would have been programmed and brainwashed, many up to their eyeballs, ready for the next stage, to fit into the prepared boxes; into jobs to serve the corporations…

This is why organizations such as Carnegie and Rockefeller put in the time, effort and money in the first place, to get the masses to fit passively into those boxes and work for their corporations.

Anyone who sees outside the box, seeing the far greater humanitarian alternative that undercuts the corporation’s greed-driven businesses is suppressed, ignored, ridiculed or even destroyed by the ruling elite’s agents. -Another reason why we’ve ended up with the same old same old…

The education system has stopped people from real critical thinking. There’s a serious need to challenge the authorities while not readily accepting the consensus of the masses view. In short, question everything.

Media

Like the education system the mass media is another form of social engineering, serving to inculcate economic, socially acceptable, moral and ethical values. Essentially, the entire mass media is now in the hands of only 5 major corporations in the USA! All these conglomerates can be linked to the controlling political, economic ruling elites.

By concentrating the ownership into the hands of just a few, that allows the ruling elite to not only more easily control the desired social engineering but also influence public consensus through their media. You have mass media biased coverage in politics, economic, academia, science and technology… as a means for the ruling elite’s own ends.

This results in the masses following media that has little in the way of anything that significantly contributes to human growth.

Science and Technology

For centuries and even today science still holds the view that reality can be explained entirely in terms of materialism, while consciousness is nothing more than an illusory by-product of our brains.

More so now than ever, this ridged and dogmatic purposeless, Godless materialistic view has been widely criticized. Many critics say that it is holding science back: That a broader paradigm approach to science beyond the confines of materialism would lead to greater benefits for humankind.

This conservative materialistic belief has allowed corporations with governments and academic institutions on their behalf to exploit. Thus scientists have been manipulated into using a narrow paradigm approach for corporate profit.

My vision is to see that science will break away from its imprisonment and then give rise to those greater benefits for humankind.

As with science, technology has not been fully allowed to develop for the same reasons. We know that over the years technology may change radically and for the better. However, some technologies stay the same because the corporations will not allow any changes that would undercut their big businesses.

No matter how much more beneficial to humankind, the related corporations with governments, academic institutions and mass media acting on their behalf will conspire to ignore, quash or even unjustly ridicule pioneers with their new alternative cheaper technology.

Take for instance the case of the motor car. Invented well over a hundred years ago the Model T Ford is basically the same in principle as the motor car of today. Nothing much has changed here because big oil who ultimately controls the industry won’t allow less polluting cheaper alternative cars to dominate the market.

There are many other examples where this happens. Take the case of cheaper natural non-toxic cancer therapies.

Politics

The major political parties, those that stand any chance of getting elected into office are all funded and backed by the world’s ruling elite. Thus the elections are only 2 or 3 horse races because the ruling elite who’ve made it this way can make sure whoever wins they would have backed.

So those in office will be there ultimately not to serve we-the-people but the wishes of their lords and masters the ruling elite and their new world order agenda. Electing any of the major political parties is therefore not only choosing a going nowhere scenario but a vote for slavery.

The solution would be to start supporting independent candidates that have no ties to the ruling elite and have a genuine want to contribute to humanity.

Overall

Such is nature that things don’t just go in circles. They either go in upward or downward spirals. If we’re to free ourselves of this downward spiral rut then we need to educate ourselves and others on how the interests of just a few elite individuals are playing us for their own gain. Say no to playing their game is the answer in mind, body and spirit.

As for you personally, if you’re stuck in a rut then don’t complain if you’re not doing anything about it.

What Humanitarian Changes Do You Wish To See In The World?

By Paul A Philips

We continue as a society to endure the toxic fallout effects of chemtrails, geo-engineering, heavy metals and fluoride, fracking, Fukushima radiation leaks and oil spillages in our seas. Then there are those other toxics assaults in the form of GMO’s, low-frequency EMF’s, radiation…

What about the Ebola virus allegedly another product of bio-warfare but some evidence suggests that its existence has not been genuinely confirmed because of insufficient testing protocol..?

Our immune systems take a further hammering through the increasingly uncompromising demands of the stress-ridden western world reflected by rises in cancer, heart disease and other life-threatening illnesses…

Financial reports have been coming through that many people are worse off now than they were some years ago as the rift between the rich and the poor increases…

Then meanwhile the world’s elite Machiavellian architects of darkness continue their intentions to foment a world war using ISIS / ISIL false flag terrorism… as their global domination agenda surreptitiously advances towards the intended surveillance, militarized police state…

And by the way, It’s funny how the same mass media corporations giving hype to Ebola and ISIS have left out Fukushima.

-As all this goes on it may be difficult for some to realize that the changes you wish to see in the world CAN happen. The trick is to stay focussed on those changes and not be too distracted by the unfolding end-game drama. Or for that matter any other distraction.

Whatever those humanitarian changes you want to see in the world are, there’s a number of ‘common denominators’ needed to bring them into existence. Responsibility and intentionality are the keys involving a mind to heart shift. Thinking from the heart will only encourage what’s needed to be done.

Ultimately it’s about a fight for the survival of love, since the human race cannot allow what’s happening to go on like this, while it must be remembered that planet Earth is a sacred being and its destruction will not be tolerated.

No matter how gloomy the circumstances nothing can take away the fact that humans are creative beings. This is our greatest strength. To become part of the team of humanitarian co-creators needed to make the necessary turnaround, from prison planet to paradise, there are certain universal laws that can be applied. They are the commonly called the laws of attraction.

The universal laws of attraction involve 4 different applications they are 1.Attention, 2.Intention, 3.Allowance and 4.Balance. This reflects the nature of reality and how we can create it to change the planetary experience.

1. Attention – The cycle, what you’re giving and getting in life reflects those things that attract. Hence the saying like attracts like.

2. Intention – Okay, so there are things that attract your attention but how great is your intention to make those things manifest? As I have already said. Intention is the key.

3. Allowance – Is the hardest of these dynamic principle laws to apply. Allowance is the art of letting go, releasing the need to be fixed, rigid and controlling when related circumstances show up for you. For example, if something goes against a function of your intention then ‘its okay that it’s not okay.’ Keep holding the focus of attention on what you’ve set out to achieve.

4. Balance – To keep integrity it is necessary to maintain harmony and balance. Follow your intuitive guidelines.

Finally, a question: Exactly what humanitarian changes do you wish to see in the world that you could make happen by applying the laws of attraction?

Is There Really A Revolution of Consciousness Going On?

By Paul A Philips

It has been said that we are in the midst of a large-scale global awakening. That many people are waking up left, right and centre to the realization there is a grand deception taking place perpetrated by elite corporate/banker ruling oligarchs: That more and more people are realizing the government is not acting in our best interest but is in power to serve these ruling oligarchs with plans that can only serve to enslave humanity.

Is there really a revolution of conscious going on acting as a catalyst that’s so desperately needed to bring about significant planetary changes away from the current destructive insanity?

First it must be remembered that this is not about a revolution as in rioting on the streets, seizing of property… etc. but creating the transformation needed to bring about liberty and the pursuit of happiness, as instilled hundreds of years ago by American forefathers, requiring governance by an honest government that serves to protect and promote truth, justice, liberty and equality.

-In short a government for the people by THE PEOPLE.

So, to answer the question is there really a revolution of conscious going on?’ let’s review the evidence.

1. Increasing alternative media popularity

Yes, the alternative media realm is gaining more and more of the lion’s share, presenting news, views and opinions that mainstream media would not be brave enough to publish. No longer are alternative media websites regarded merely as material for a few paranoid conspiracy theory kooks… People in increasing numbers are waking up to the realization that many of the so-called conspiracy theories are conspiracy facts: thus turning myth into reality by changing points of view, while discovering the propagandist lies and cover-ups by the mainstream media…

2. Alternative news related public speakers find increasing audiences

In line with the above I’ve heard it said from a number of alternative media related public speakers that their audiences are increasing in numbers. For example, alternative health author and speaker Phillip Day said that not only are his audiences increasing on his tours but are also questioning more, showing their increasing interest and alertness…

3. Decreasing ratings in mainstream media

In recent years there has been a continuing slump in mainstream media ratings. This includes some of the biggest names such as CNN, MSNBC and Fox News. For example, a recent study by Pew Research found that 3 mainstream media mega-corporations had their prime-time viewers’ fall in ratings by 11 percent. According to Michael Snyder in his report the slump is caused by American people increasingly losing faith in the establishment-controlled manipulated mainstream media with their political and corporate self-interests…

Consequentially, people are turning to alternative media sources for more truthful, honest reporting. This is quite significant when you realize that the entire mainstream media is owned and controlled by only 6 corporations!

4. Public opinion prevented a war on Syria

We saw waves of protest and a groundswell of public opinion which had prevented Obama’s plans to order military intervention in Syria. British Prime Minister Cameron had also failed to get parliamentary backing for the strikes having been outvoted by MP’s. The call for military intervention was centred on the allegation that Syria had not handed over all their chemical weapon of mass destruction… now where had we heard all that before?!

5. There is a growing awareness of political corruption

More and more are getting the realization that political corruption is endemic and politicians are increasingly out-of-touch with the people their supposed to serve. More than ever people are seeing right through the lies and ulterior motives: Politicians continue to fail to maintain peace, are major culprits in preventing health’s biggest problems such heart disease, cancer and dementia getting solved… They aid and abet harmful technologies to us and the environment like GMO, fracking and geo-engineering while having a significant hand in the growing rift between the rich and poor…

-All this because of self-interest, corrupt governmental practices and monopolistic greed resulting in the ongoing planetary devastation, suffering and financial destitution of hundreds of millions of people.

To summarize

To answer the question ‘is there really a revolution of consciousness going on?’ the answer has to be yes. Will the threshold number of aware people be enough to influence the necessary planetary changes needed to take us away from the doom and gloom..? Well, that indeed remains to be seen.

Will Science Really Explore The Nature Of Consciousness?

By Paul A Philips

Science has long held the firm belief that conscious is an illusion. Dogmatically, without any proof whatsoever, they want you to believe that your conscious experiences related to self-awareness and ‘mind’ are nothing more than illusions produced by brain chemistry.

However, age-old scientific paradigms like this are slowly crumbling. More and more scientists are now willing to embrace the idea that our existences cannot be explained merely by reducing us to the level of biochemical robots. Consciousness is something that coexists with our brains. Sooner or later I predict that scientists will somehow find suitable methods to open wide the doors leading to discovery and learn more about consciousness.

One such scientist opening up those doors with a keen interest in consciousness research is Dr Jill Balte Taylor a Harvard-trained brain scientist. In 1996 she had a massive stroke in the left side of her brain and experienced some very strange things.

At the time of the stroke she stopped working out on her exercise bike realizing that something was not right. Fully consciously unaware her experiences got stranger and stranger… With a pulsating pain behind the left eye her perceptions changed: A dark shimmer rose from the floor blurring the edges behind. Everything went silent including noises from outside the room. Light looked different. She held out her hand and described it as something weird looking like a claw not belonging to her as the throbbing pain behind the left eye continued…

Waking up after 10 minutes sleep, in spite of the continuing disturbing circumstances she had lost the ability to register fear. That’s because the sensory parts of her brain related to this as with the other losses in sensing had shut down due to a massive stroke. In spite of the unrelenting pain the weirdness continued; going in and out of a Nirvana-like state of bliss losing her sense of separation as if she was one with everything: In so many words she said the experience made her feel free like a genie out of a bottle…

Desperately trying to call for help she had great difficulty in reading a colleague’s phone card. Having lost the ability to decipher the writing and numbers all she could see was indeterminate colours looking like pixels. Having recognised the lab’s logo she managed to decipher her colleague’s number on the card by matching the squiggles (produced by the pixels) to those on her phone. Thus, she was then able to call the number.

As she began telling the colleague about the stroke all she could hear from her voice was gibberish. The response at the other end of the line was also unintelligible gibberish to her. However, she could detect from his voice tone that the colleague would get help.

Help was soon given.

After carefully operating on Jill to remove a golf ball sized blood clot interfering with the language processing part of her brain it then took some 8 years for her to fully recover from the affects of the stroke.

What can we get from this?

During the stroke she lacked the left-brain’s ability needed to process the raw sensory data from the world about her and translate it into a coherent reality. Therefore, our physical bodies are the interface between the consciousness and the world about us

Now, truly grateful to be alive Jill continues sharing her experiences while encouraging everyone to look into the nature of consciousness with its related practices, insights and experiences. In her talks she makes the distinction between the brain’s left and right hemispheres. She describes concentrating our attention on the left brain as something to choose to become a solid individual and separated from the ‘flow of us all…’ She goes on to say choosing the right brain can take us to the place where we all exist describing it as the universe life-force energy powered by the 50 trillion plus cells that make up our body.

Like others who have had similar experiences she makes the point that by understanding the nature of conscious and who we really are is one, as realized by accessing our inner-peace circuitry, there will be more peace in the world.

The choice, she says, is up to us all.

Are You Creative? Do These 12 Characteristics Of A Creative Person Describe You?

By Paul A Philips

Creativity can be described as the ability to bring something into existence; into being. Having said that, nobody really knows exactly what it is: Creative moments can mysteriously show up in certain situations and in context, while it can also fail when really needed.

From studies neurologists say that creativity paints a complex picture. The idea that the right-brain is where creativity happens with emotions while the left-brain is based on rational, analytical and logical thought is oversimplified. It has not yet been clearly established what happens during the creative cognitive processes with respect to neural pathways.

However, psychologically speaking, there are certain personality traits or characteristics that define a creative person. Researcher Scott Barry Kaufman at the Psychology department of New York University says, in so many words, one major feature of the creative person is that they are more complex individuals than the non-creative… because of this he went on to say that imaginative people have ‘messier minds.’

While there is no stereotypical personality type there are certain tell-tale signs or characteristics that describe a creative person. Here are those tell-tale signs or characteristics. Do they describe you?

1. Creative people daydream

Creative people find themselves daydreaming from time to time. Contrary to what teacher told you in the classroom with its negative connotations, daydreaming may allow people to be highly effective by creating something useful right out of the blue…

2. Are wide-eyed and observant!

They see things; objects, people and events… from many angles, taking in all they can with the idea that their observations could be turned into something creative one day…

3. Like to spend time alone

Whether it’s through habit or by nature many successful creative people have been known to be loners. Spending time alone opens the channels for those creative inspirational moments. Indeed, this links with the above that creative people daydream.

Daydreaming and solitude go hand in hand. In both circumstances it allows creative individuals to get in touch with their inner being and express themselves. It comes as no surprise that many famous artists, writers… were considered to be loners.

4. Rise above hardships, using this as a platform for creative output

Psychology recognises the fact that there is a pattern here. Whether it’s at the group or individual level, creative people, having gone through all sorts of heartbreak and pain have turned these things around into something effective, seeing new possibilities for themselves in a different light.

5. Willingness to experience new things

This has been said to be a significant predictor of creativity and creative output. The openness to experience and what is experienced can be a vast range of things, ranging from the sensational, emotional, intellectual, fantasy, thrill seeking… all these experiences brought together as inspiration for creative output. Diversity of experience plays a significant part in nurturing creativity.

6. Show much resilience

The already mentioned Psychologist Kaufman described resilience as a pre-requisite for creative success. Creative individuals are known to fail repeatedly until they can find something that works for them. The trick here is to not take failure or rejection so seriously, but to keep going… to find some workable stability.

7. Don’t avoid the risk

Are not afraid of taking risks related to what they have brought into existence and into being. Innovators may well find themselves having to take risks. Indeed, money, people and resources could well be at stake.

8. They see things as a chance for self-expression

No matter what the circumstances are creative people are always on the lookout for opportunities to express their views, desires and needs in a unique way…

9. Follow what moves, inspires and guides

They act on what intrinsically moves, inspires and guides them rather than getting swayed by external influences like reward and recognition. Just looking at the possibility of what could be intrinsically inspiring is enough to get creativity going.

10. Move away from limitations / confinements

They see a bigger picture, not dwelling on the limitations / confinements that others normally stay with, willing to embrace a greater possibility. Great artists, writers… entrepreneurs… have the ability of vision, seeing things outside of the box and are able to ‘connect the dots.’ Creativity doesn’t just mean putting the pieces together. It’s necessary to know what order and when each piece comes together to form the whole like ‘connecting the dots.’

11. Easily lose track of the time

When in the creative flow writers, musicians, painters, dancers, actors… often lose track of the time. The creative flow is a state that transcends conscious thinking, shutting off time keeping or any distractions and external pressures.

12. Stay focussed

Creative people recognise the importance of staying focussed. If you are in the performing arts’ staying focussed is of course essential. It goes further than this. Maintaining the creative state through mindfulness has been shown by research to increase brain power. There was a Danish 2012 study which showed that mindfulness meditation could enhance creative output. Other bonuses included better memory, an increase in emotional well-being, stress and anxiety reduction.

Summary

Sp, do you have any of these tell-tale signs or characteristics?

This is not an exhaustive account but it is hoped that the reader will be inspired while looking closely into those characteristics that describe the creative person.
