blueman110Do you think you have an average or perhaps an above average mental capacity?Actually you have far more brainpower than you can begin to imagine. You have close to, or perhaps even beyond, genius potential.

You don’t believe me? The past ten years could well be called the decade of the brain. Neuroscience now has the means of observing a healthy living brain in action.

Physicists have discovered parallels between the human brain, and Einstein’s quantum universe. Biological scientists are demystifying the brain’s chemical and electrical mysteries.

Trying to define our brain’s ultimate capacity is like trying to place your finger on a globule of mercury. The human brain is infinitely complex and subtle. And your amazing brain is no exception.

The Amazing Capacity of your Brain
Your brain contains a minimum 1,000,000,000,000 individual nerve cells neurons.

But this figure is even more astounding when you consider that each nerve cell can connect with as many as 100,000 other nerve cells.

If we add upthe potential capacity of your brain cells to make interconnections  the resulting number will stretch at least 10.5 million kilometers long. Isn’t that remarkable?

No known person has even approached using their full mental capacity. The human brain is virtually limitless.

It was once estimated that we use about 10% of our mental potential. Today neuroscience has dropped that estimate to less than one percent. And even that figure seems overly optimistic.

Your Thinking Cap
You’ve heard the expression thinking cap. That term refers to your brain’s cerebral cortex the cortical grey matter neuroscientists consider to be the source of your logical thinking capacity.

Your cortex is actually split into two separate sides that are connected by a fantastically dense and complex highway of nerve fibers called the corpus collosum.

In most people, the left side of the cerebral cortex deals with logical matters words, numbers, reasoning, and analysis. It spends a lot of time in the beta brainwave range.

The right side of your cerebral cortex, on the other hand, deals with imagination, images, color, day-dreaming, visualization, and pattern recognition. It tends to focus quite a bit in the alpha brainwave range that’s so highly developed in meditators.

Was Einstein Right-Brained or Left-Brained?
There’s a common assumption that most people are either right-brained OR left-brained.

If that’s true, then we must assume that the great scientific genius Albert Einstein was left-brained while the great creative master of photography Ansel Adams would then have been right-brained.

But was this the case?

An examination of the notebooks of Albert Einstein and Ansel Adams pokes huge holes in this common theory. In fact, Einstein did NOT credit his greatest scientific insights to his left-brain logic but rather to right-brain highly creative daydreaming.

And Ansel Adams credited his greatest art photographs not to his right-brain artistic eye but rather to his left-brain detailed analytical note taking.

The Whole-Brain Secret
Actually – your most powerful and expansive mental activities are those using both sides of your cortex.

If you describe yourself as primarily creative or intuitive right-brained, or analytical and logical left-brained, you are just describing the side of the cortex you have most successfully developed.

With the correct nurturing, the other side of your cortex can also flourish and develop! This has the potential to double your mind power.

Get Immediate Results
There’s an outrageously powerful way for you to immediately refine the non-dominant side of your cortex. Great athletes do it. So do top executives, famous artists, and people from all walks of life who seek to excel in their lives.

On first reading, the following solution may seem too simple to be effective. But just give it a try, and you’ll be amazed at the expanded depth of your mental capacity.

The solution? Do what Einstein and Ansel Adams did.

If you’re analytical encourage yourself to daydream. And if you’re instead predominantly creative encourage yourself to begin to logically analyze your creative efforts.

Notice as many details of life or a problem as possible. Activate your mind and ask yourself what if. And begin to pay more attention to your mental wanderings.

Build Your Mental Focus
A really big key to making this work is commitment and mental focus.

Here’s why: The instant you commit, and focus your amazing brain on a single thought, you fire up laser-like mental power. In that millisecond you actually physically strengthen your brain’s neural networks attached to that thought or goal.

This is the true key to peak performance and masters-level performance in all areas of life.

Solving the BIG Prosperity Mystery

money10Why do some people seem to just soar toward prosperity, while others struggle and never seem to achieve their goals? There’s a mystery about prosperity that many people overlook the secret of where it all really begins.

Where Does Prosperity Begin?
Do you have a desire to create prosperity in your life? Then you’ll want to consider the mystery behind prosperity. The mystery is this: You have to start with one very important decision! What are you offering to give, in return for achieving your goal of prosperity?

The road to prosperity begins with that decision. This is the ultimate beginning of prosperity, unless you manage to win the lottery or inherit money, of course.

Can making this decision pose a problem? Yes. We’re talking about creative thinking on the prosperous level the type of thinking typical of people who ARE prosperous. The challenge is this: What do you do to achieve this level of thinking before you’re prosperous?

Cultivate a Beginner’s Mind
Your mind is infinitely more subtle and creative than you realize! And sometimes it pays to sneak up on it when trying to solve a problem of this nature. What would this involve? Looking for an answer with a totally open and flexible beginner’s mind.

Suppose, for example, you’re an expert in vertical take off and landing aircraft. And perhaps you’re searching for a new, creative approach to hovering you can sell to the aircraft industry.

Obviously you could drag out technical texts and the latest journals in your field and pour over them. That would be a good starting point. But suppose you instead chose to be a beginner, and make the assumption that anything is possible regarding hovering your key to prosperity.

I wonder what insight might come to you if you asked yourself how a mosquito approaches hovering or how a speck of dust manages to weightlessly float in the air current above your desk?

Is it lighter than the air? No? And yet it floats and hovers. Since you are a beginner, can you assume your aircraft could do the same thing? Could it defy gravity?

Another approach is to pick one common assumption in your field that everyone subscribes to. What if they are all wrong? What if the truth is the exact opposite. Black is white, and white is black.

What would this mean? How can you apply it? Do some beginner’s mind brainstorming, and don’t reject your crazy ideas. Reflect on them.

Boost Your Mind Power
A great way to build prosperity mind power is to continually feed your mind new ideas and concepts. Get onto the cutting edge of your field of interest. In our rapidly exploding information age, knowledge is the key to success.

The interesting thing about building up your knowledge in your field is this: The more you know, the more competent you will become.

And the more competent you become, the greater your sense of self-esteem and confidence. This equals increased personal power the sure mark of an achiever on the road to prosperity.

BUT many very successful people insist it’s equally important to read and study totally outside your field. Read a comic book. Watch a garden program on TV. Go to a horse race. Challenge your mind to grow and expand. Bill Gates plays chess and bridge.

Be Willing to Cut Your Losses
According to the American Management Association, at least 70% of the decisions we make regarding our lives and our businesses or professions will turn out to be wrong in the long run.

So how is it that some people still manage to end up so prosperous? The answer is simple. Those who rise to the top in life are willing to cut their losses if a decision proves wrong. They are willing to admit they made a mistake, and move onto a new path.

To rise to the top in your own life, develop the skill of looking carefully at your decisions. If new information or results light proves your decision isn’t working, be willing to abandon it and try something different. There’s no sense kicking a dead horse, after all. The horse won’t get up and pull your cart, and you’ll just bruise your toes.

Your Most Valuable Asset
The greatest source of wealth you have is right there in your skull. And remember that modern neuroscience has now proven that our brains never cease to grow and change regardless of our age.

What you need to become truly prosperous is a flexible, active, creative brain and the courage to commit to your ideas.

Since there is virtually no limit on the knowledge you can acquire, and the creativity you can develop, why not just go for it?

What you have between your ears is far more valuable than your bank account. Money is always out there looking for ideas. Your personal ability to build your brainpower, and unlock your creativity, is the true key to prosperity. Period.

States of Consciousness

Brainwaves & States of Consciousness

Each and every thought or memory you have has a corresponding brainwave – an electrical signal that passes through your brain and triggers an appropriate memory, thought, response or action.

The goal of the QUANTUM MIND training program is to support you in learning to recognize exactly what mental state and combination of brainwaves YOU are currently experiencing. From this you will develop the ability to create any combination of brainwaves at will — including higher states of consciousness, and any combination appropriate for your current goal (instant deep meditation, creative awareness, etc).

Human Consciousness

There are six easily recognized states of human consciousness:

Deep Sleep
Dreaming Sleep
Conscious Wakefulness
Instantaneous Insight
Transcendental Consciousness

Each of these six states of consciousness represents an increased direct personal experience of the nature of reality, and is said to move us closer to the ideal state of enlightenment.

Deep sleep is the first level of consciousness, and occurs when your brain is producing very slow Delta brainwaves. During deep sleep there is some awareness, and we can still respond to such external stimuli as sound, bright light, or touch. However for the most part, during deep sleep our sensory perception is primarily turned down, and we experience very little cognition or thinking.

The second state of consciousness is dreaming. During dreaming we produce REM (rapid eye movements) and spikes into the faster brainwave frequencies. We are a bit more conscious and alert than during deep sleep. Dreams are definite experiences – we see images and patterns, perceive sounds, and can even think and analyze during dreams. Dream reality poses something of a mystery. The Buddha is quoted as having said: “Am I a man dreaming I am a butterfly, or a butterfly dreaming I am a man.”

The experience of conscious wakefulness is the mental state we tend to spend most of our waking time in. Measurable brain activity during the waking state of consciousness is quite different when compared with brain activity during both sleep and dreaming. Common wakefulness brainwave activity is dominated by Beta and Gamma brainwaves, perhaps with some Alpha spikes.

The fourth state of awareness is instantaneous insight. This is the state of consciousness we experience when we have an instant insight, often accompanied by a sensation of a light flashing in the brain, or a vibration or pressure across the top of the head. This state of mind is entered through a state of relaxed awareness dominated by Alpha and some Theta brainwaves. The sensation of light flashing in the brain is an explosion of energy created by a massive neural connection. The feeling of pressure across the top of the head is sensed as the entire cortex vibrates in a single coherent frequency – like the shaking of a bowl of jello.

The fifth state is content-free restful alertness, often referred to as transcendental consciousness. This state usually occurs during deep meditation when we become, even for a moment, absolutely still and focused in the quiet gap between our thoughts. This state occurs as the mind momentarily aligns with the Unified Field of Consciousness — the one source of infinite intelligence and creativity. In this state the the self is only aware of itself, and is devoid of all thoughts, feelings and perceptions. Your self-awareness is intact, yet there is no sense of time, space, or your body.

This mental state has a corresponding brainwave corresponds to an integrated brain state in which the left and right hemispheres are totally balanced and the Schumann gate is open. Conscious Delta brainwaves are present, and levels of Theta and Alpha are elevated and integrated through activity in the Schumann frequency (7.87 cps).

The sixth state of consciousness is enlightenment, a meta-level of awareness characterized by the persistent presence of Transcendental Consciousness throughout all of one’s activity – waking, sleeping, and dreaming. To my knowledge, no brainwave studies have been performed of this state of consciousness. I personally know only one person whom I can attest lives in this state of enlightenment and constant bliss – Sri Anandi Ma – but I have heard of others.
