Granted most of it is very useful. I can't confirm all of these. The body's temperature control, numbing touch and most of the others involving lower brain function do work, some call this Ki or Chi. Which is the manipulation of body's basic functions controlled by the lower brain, including the bodies electromagnetic field or aura. http://superconscious1.blogspot.com/ [/quote] exaxtly so [/quote] Trying some of them really helped recall memories for me. I can't remember it all, but it's coming back in bits and pieces. [/quote] Just scanning down the list, I'd have to agree due to the familiarity of the subjects. I'll never forgive the hippies for this. I'm always fearing sounding new agey or sounding like a hippy when I'm discussing anything that starts traipsing into "outside of the norm" thinking. Same with the 7 letter P-word. This truly is the 7th ring of Hell for me. Damn hippies broke me...lol :( [/quote] I found most of it helpful, but then maybe I was lucky I was only in for 3-4 years. The biggest issue I ran into, was the lack of any method to control my emotions. As I was highly empathetic, such is the curse of feeling others pain on top of my own. The Basic concept is: Emotions are triggered by thoughts, if we control our thoughts then we control our emotions. A thought is no more difficult then you make it to be. Once you grasp that concept and put it to use, controlling emotions is like child's play. There are a lot of little tips and tricks you can use to control emotions, the more you practice the more proficient you become. [/quote] I had quite the opposite problem. One where some of my closest friends questioned whether I was a machine or a human due to my lack of emotional display. In my journals, I began remarking with some amount of dull horror about how I was deadened from both emotion and physical pain when I was just 15. I am dissociative and the emotional difficulties was due to the severing of the two halves of my brain from each other and abandonment of the right "emotional" half of the brain. Or as Gowan would have put it--my conscious overlay prematurely ruptured and most likely due to developmental forcing. Dabrowski called this heightened emotional sensitivity "OE" or "overexcitability". Getting us in control of our above average sensitivities seemed to be one of the goals in the programs as far as the discussions that I viewed went. At best, they were trying to prevent us from turning into noxious little isolated individuals who despised the world. At worst, human computers. [/quote] I'm sorry it didn't work for you too well, people are fearful of what they do not understand. I think I understand, you continued with what they taught so too speak. I used to have the same problem, it was like my body wasn't even my own, if something happened to it it was like it happened to someone else. And I know exactly what you mean about being a machine, but all subconscious minds behave like machines, I even program mine like a computer. However, I set most of tools for learning down when I shut down and stopped trying to learn proficiently in the 7th grade. Which is when I started having emotional problems. I just started practicing again in the last year or two. You can break those barriers if you want, it involves talking to your subconscious like you would anyone else. Just remember our self-programming techniques, to increase accuracy. [/quote] Oof. The subconscious mind does NOT behave like a machine. Far from it--normally, it's the epitome of chaos when unrestricted. However, I would have said nearly the same things as you did above not so long ago. Have you not read any of the journal articles above? How can you not realize that you are espousing the very things that were the goals of a program that never once, in the course of human history, was thought to need to exist until the last two centuries? Initially, when the programs within my mind started crashing, I described it as a hurricane. I'm out of the hurricane now. I'd rather put a bullet in my brain than ever go back to what I once was. The subconscious is supposed to be wild and dynamic, highly creative, and pure chaos. What they did in the programs, via either the mental programming through licensed hypnotherapists, psychologists or psychiatrists or through the teaching of ourselves to regard our minds as if they were mere, useless computers to be programmed, was wholly disruptive of the natural development of genius. Da Vinci didn't need this bullshit. Nor did Emerson, Huxley, Carroll, Hero of Alexandria, or any other wild genius throughout history. So no thank you. I'd prefer a bullet to the brain in all earnestness. I prefer myself as I am now--wild and unfettered albeit disrupted and broken--than living in mental shackles. Forgive the hostility. It's more towards them than you. Please wake up. [/quote]
