Our fears, confusion, doubts, ignorance and beliefs distort our perception of the world, preventing us (our body, mind and self) from accessing our true intelligence. A lack of sense of oneness, our susceptibility to confirmation bias, and lack of awareness of the present moment prevent us from accessing our true intelligence.
We have two minds—two different ways of knowing: an emotional mind and a rational mind. This is the age-old choice between the “heart” and the “head,” emotion and reason. Evolutionary biology explains why the heart often wins.
Excellent students do not necessarily become successful in their professional and personal lives. IQ contributes to success by only 20%, while 80% depends on non-IQ factors, ranging from socio-economic background to luck to—most importantly—emotional intelligence.
A stressful learning process can undermine the outcomes it’s been designed to promote—acquisition of knowledge, skills & capabilities. Overcome this by achieving psychophysiological coherence and gain emotional & mental clarity, increased capacity for learning, and ability to retain the acquired knowledge longer.
Waking, dreaming, and dreamless sleep are the three common states of consciousness. Meditators recognize them as lower and sub-optimal levels of human consciousness. The purpose of life is to evolve and begin to operate at higher states of consciousness.
Conventional science treats consciousness as a byproduct of matter. In contrast, visionary modern scientists now see consciousness as a a ground state from which all things arise. Rather than the brain producing consciousness, it is consciousness that uses the brain to manifest itself.
We have capacity to transform our own lives and the lives of many others, and to have a huge impact on the world. Just like the beautiful lotus flower grows from the mud, compassion is born within the depths of our being.
In people who experience spontaneous remission or a terminal illness, a change in worldview is common. When we create mental, emotional, and spiritual fields of love and kindness, we provide a healthy energetic ecosystem in which our bodies regenerate.
We are neurologically “hardwired” to a reality construct shaped by our past experiences. Each of us creates our own “virtual reality.” A simple shift towards a different emotional and mental makeup can reshape your reality and make you happier.
Creativity is the ability to discover or generate something new—whether it is an idea, an object/product, theory, method, or a solution to a problem. Fostering creativity through education, training and personal development is of paramount importance to anyone who aspires to remain competitive in the modern workplace. Research has shown that just 10 minutes of daily mindfulness meditation enhances creativity.
Neural hijackings is an impulsive, irrational and disproportionate emotional reaction due to the arousal of the amygdala. On the other hand, the neocortical part of the emotional brain is a “damper switch” for the amygdala, efficiently managing our emotions.
Our worldview about people, things & situations is what determines our reality. Yet it is a product of a complex social process which begins early in our childhood and continues as long as we live. It is known as social programming.
Emotional intelligence (EI) is the ability to perceive, evaluate and control our emotions and those of others. The five cornerstones of EI are self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy and social skills. One can consciously raise EI through suitable methods.
Sadness is a primary human emotion. Sadness is a discomforting emotion, and people generally try to escape it. Before it gets out of control and threatens your well-being by turning into a debilitating condition, learn a few effective coping strategies.
Achieving a state of coherence can have a strong positive impact on business professionals. By learning how to put all these elements in sync, business professionals and leaders can reap many significant benefits, ranging from higher capacity for strategic thinking to better team synergies and more business success.
Coherent breathing — a style of controlled, slow breathing at a rate of five breath cycles per minute — calms the body and the mind, inducing a state of calm alertness. This breathwork technique greatly helps cope with stress, anxiety and depression.
Meditation alters one’s perception of pain. Seasoned meditators can disconnect the cognitive and emotional components of their experience from the pure sensation. At the time of a major life crisis, they can have a much higher capacity to manage stress.
To reclaim agency over your life, strive to achieve a state of coherence. Through coherence, you will overcome stress and overwhelm, improve the quality of life, and begin to manifest abundance, by harnessing the power of the non-local mind.
When out of sync, we are not in control of our energy flow. Non-alignment of our thoughts, feelings and actions is a key feature of incoherent living. Incoherence is driven by our physiological response to stress and negative experiences.
The body does not distinguish between real and perceived threat—its biochemical response to both is same. Stress can be kept “alive” through repetitive negative thoughts, weakening the immune system and compromising the body’s ability to re-establish its equilibrium.
Just as the arms of a bodybuilder get bigger as he practices lifting heavier weights, our neural pathways in the brain that the mind’s choices stimulate are the ones that grow. In this way, the mind literally creates the brain.
Better emotional regulation means staying in balance regardless of the external circumstances. Meditation neurologically changes your traits and personality, leading to greater resilience, more empathy, and a greater degree of self-regulation. It makes you the master of your emotions rather than a slave to them.
Electromagnetic fields exist around all living beings. Our body continuously interacts with other energy fields outside itself—whenever two people meet, their energy fields interact. The matter of your cells responds to the energy of your consciousness—feed it with uplifting and inspirational thoughts, ideas and beliefs, in order to create a positive, stress-free, and abundant reality.
Spiritual traditions have shown that coherence is a multifaceted state, achieved at the levels of body, mind and soul. Scientists now confirm that practices such as mindfulness, meditation and breathwork can lead to sustained states of physiological coherence.
Synchronicities are ‘meaningful coincidences or connections between the subjective and objective world’—concurring events which lack causality, yet have deep meaning for those who experience them. Frequencies might function as resonators that bind together in synchronicity micro and macro events. A way to cultivate synchronicity is to consistently hold onto positive, loving and elevated thoughts and feelings.
Meditation helps overcome brain fog, fuzzy thinking, inability to focus or concentrate and clouded judgments. Neuroscientists have found that meditation enhances our perception, boosts our cognitive skills and equips us with better mechanisms to cope with fear and stress.
Coherence is the quality of being integrated, consistent, congruent, systematic, and making sense as a whole. Coherence is a state of maximum efficiency—it can be compared to the incredible intensity of a laser beam. Coherence can be understood as physiological, emotional, cognitive, and behavioral.
