Touching Positive

How can we improve our intuition to get in touch with positive solutions?

I recently posted these photos taken of a small shop in Mt. Dora last week.

Having a way to do what you love brings so much positive energy and these signs are so positive… that… here they are again.

Yesterday’s message, The Network Challenge looked at how nature provides a positive solution for every negative event.

The universe knows solutions to every problem because polarity is the nature of the universe.  Since we are a part of this universe… we know the solution as well and the essence of this in-formation is our yearning or heart’s desire.

We simply need to know how to know what we know in a usable way.

My thinking is that we are in touch with this knowledge through our four brain waves…. Beta… Alpha… Theta and Delta.

Our Beta waves tap into the local news. This is the part of our being that takes care of the here and now…the space around us.  This is what we call logic and it is a vital tool. Nothing is more important than know what conditions are in the here and now.   However mankind is so dependent on this logic that that often the messages are ignored coming from our other brain waves that we can sum up by calling them intuition.

Our Alpha waves connect us to the regional news. This is a much deeper and broader area of intelligence too vast for our prefrontal logical brain to compute on its own. When we tap into Alpha we get intuitive creative flashes we could never just think up.  If there is about to be an earthquake in our region, all animals know it. Dogs will howl.  Roosters will crow. Birds will fly away.  Humans have this intuition as well.  Yet we can be so steeped in our logic… that we ignore it.

Theta connects brain waves which connect with the global news.   This an even deeper vaster level of intelligence.  At some level we are in touch with anything and everything that happens wherever int he world.   Here we need the filter of our logic. For our mind to process all this data would be like running many yottabytes squared of information through a 64K processor.

At some level we are in touch with everything that happens in the world.

Delta waves are our connection to the universal news right down to our quantum state.   This is an intelligence so vast that we cannot even imagine it.  Here according to quantum science we are even in touch with the past and future…even other universes in a multiverse. We must be in a dream state where the physical boundaries strip away. In Delta we can be in two places at once, know all things and even fly.

When we allow these waves to interconnect freely we gain access to infinite knowledge and unimaginable intellect.  We call this connection intuition.

Merri and I tap into and integrate this knowledge in three ways… silence…. music and theanine.

#1: Silence

One classic article I read and reread is a USA Today article entitled “Sphere of Silence” as it tells how a successful CFO uses silence in business and says:  Vijay Eswaran (pronounced Veejay Eeshwuhrn) is not well known in the USA , but throughout Asia he has become something akin to a CEO/spiritual guide. Picture a Kung Fu episode with David Carradine running Hong Kong telecommunications, travel, e-commerce, entertainment conglomerate QI Group, a company less than 10 years old that is approaching $1 billion in annual sales. Eswaran, a Hindu Indian born in Malaysia , starts each day monk-like with an hour of silence, a practice detailed in his book “In the Sphere of Silence.”

To gain from silence, Merri and I meditate every day.

#2: Music

A comparison on the benefits of meditation and Baroque Music can help us see how to attain the state of relaxed concentration.  This study compares Transcendental Meditation. Since TM is the most documented form of meditation worldwide, it lends itself to a comparison with Super Thinking.

Below, we can see the physiological changes during sessions of listening to certain types of music as compared to TM Meditation.

Super Thinking Concert Meditation (TM)
Slow Baroque Music during Intense Mental Activity Reciting a Mantra
Alpha brain waves Increase by
an average 6%.
Alpha brain waves increase.
Beta Brain Waves Decrease by
an average 6%.
Theta Brain Waves unchanged. Some increase in Theta.
Pulse slows down by an average a mean decrease of 5 beats per minute. Decreases significantly with 5 beats per minute.
Blood pressure drops slightly. Tendency to decrease.
Awareness becomes relaxed concentration. Restful alertness.

Meditation creates a state of “Restful Alertness”…. which is great for tuning into deeper levels of intelligence.

Music, however, creates “Relaxed Concentration” the state one wants to attain for study and action.

We listen to 60 beat ten cycle classical music… recommended by Dr.Georgi Lozanov, the great Bulgarian educator,  as we work.

You could count the number of times we have missed our meditation routine in the last 20 years on one hand.

#3: L-Theanine.

Theanine (chemical name: r-glutamylethylamide) is one of the chemicals found in green tea. Theanine is used to reduce stress and anxiety without the tranquilizing effects found in many other calming agents. Scientific evidence shows that Theanine stimulates the brain’s production of alpha waves, making the user feel relaxed but alert and not drowsy. It also helps the body produce other calming amino acids, such as dopamine, GABA, and tryptophan. As might be expected from a calming supplement, Theanine may be able to lower elevated blood pressure as well.

We buy theanine at the health food store under the brand name of Theanine Serene.

The universe is a balance yin and yang…  plus and minus… positive and negative.  For eevry minue there is a plus and we, at some level know it so next time you are feeling negative… get in touch with the  positive.
