What is Happening on and Around Our Planet

Published

on

Has humanity ever had any part in the decisions made that govern our world?. Does humanity have any decision in the process of what is happening here on the planet?. Do we really have any influence at all as to what is happening here? What are we, if these questions have answers, why do we believe they don’t?

Consume, live life how you are told, be interested in this, and not that, you can’t know that”

If you look at the control structures that are currently in place, a wide variety of entities are clearly in a position of what we define as power. Earth population has been greatly influenced into creating a system in which power is given to outside agencies. These agencies include many different characteristics and people in cooperation with other large scale entities that are not even at the top of the pyramid structure. Discoveries of humanity are suppressed when the control structure is threatened.

The knowing that these happenings are real is enough to make the pyramid structure disappear and begin creating something new for planet earth.  For ourselves, having the realization that we indeed do have the ability to change what happens and is happening on our planet and in our lives is what awaits us, is what is here. We are  all love, and all desire love, nobody can deny that so lets give it to each other. We are moving towards an age of awareness, we are currently in the middle of it and eventually moving towards completely dissolving this control structure to the point where we will not even remember it’s existence.

What is this control structure? Many different facets are in control of what is happening on this planet.  Energy companies for one, companies such as Exxon Mobil, Chevron, ENI  NOCs (National Oil Companies) and IOCs (International Oil Companies) are one small yet large part in a world wide control structure. They currently supply the world with energy, something we have come to feel we need to live, electricity.  Electricity is not a need, but used in the right way, in a way that is beneficial to all instead of using it as a tool for slavery would be better. We don’t have to pay for electricity, why should we? Nicolas Tesla figured out how to transmit power in a wireless way. He figured out that we  can get electricity to anywhere, that it was all around us, the energy around us that we cannot see, we are surrounded in it.

“Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be changed from one form to another” -Albert E

Everything is made up of an invisible energy field that we cannot see. It’s as physical as you and me, just not in our spectrum of vision. We could say the opposite as well, that the physical is just an illusion.  Just because it is not perceivable to the senses does not mean we cannot create from it. The science community has created from it, using it at various facilities all over the world. These facilities include military bases, and private corporations that deal with high technological development in all areas of study. A scientist has not been able to venture out on his own, creating things that the masses would consider untreatable, or not possible. Scientists  are controlled, and silenced by heads of these companies,which make up a part of the pyramid structure. Companies like Lockheed Martin. A craving for information has existed within the control structure, as it is now starting to present itself within many individuals in the public domain, us, combine this with the realization that we are more than this body here and that we can use  this information the way it is meant to be used. It is meant to be used out of love, understanding and oneness.

“We already have the means to travel among the stars, but these technologies are locked up in black projects and it would take an act of God to ever get them out to benefit humanity….anything you can imagine we already know how to do”  -Ben Rich, former Head of Lockheed Skunk Works.
“Nature never uses English, it doesn’t speak any language, but yet it’s talking to us all the time. The key thing is to identify what it’s saying”Boyd Bushman, former senior research scientist engineer and inventor at Lockheed Martin Aeronautics.

Past UFO occurrences have tended to occur en mass in our ancient history. More so when these civilizations clearly demonstrated a realization of the soul. Has the “classified” world identified the soul, and have they used this knowing to operate certain technologies? Ovecourse. http://www.nsa.gov/public_info/_files/ufo/us_gov_iran_case.pdf (NSA example of scrambled Jet, 1/1000’s of pages from various organizations.

 

Many different ways are used to generate what we already generate from oil, but for the sake of control (money being a tool used to control) these technologies have been suppressed from humanity and are in the hands of those who can suppress it. Money is just a tool used to create the system that we live in, when it becomes useless another attempt of control might be thrown upon us, but will we allow it? The way things are going right now, we are on the road to completely dropping any type of structure that encourages a limiting perception of our reality. Individuals have been forced into a slave like state of mind, but this is exactly what it is, a state of mind. You do not have to have that type of perception. The truth is, you hold the power, and you hold the key. You are in control and can attain a state of inner peace. At this state, magical things can occur, and an inner peace state on the collective level would be quite a sight.  What the mass media influences us to perceive is detrimental and depressing and is really something to cherish, celebrate and be thankful for, because without it we might not have been able too see. Human beings have been made to believe that taking care of themselves, is taking care of what they want to do. Most are doing something we do not want to do, a system of multiple options for us to choose from, a system of “professions.” Humanity on earth believes that this is all that is in existence for us, and things will not change anytime soon. Your profession is not really a free will choice, it is just a position in the game that is being played out here, and the game is changing. They are not free will choices, they are labels in place which require a specific set of skills you can attain from different institutions, again, you are given a choice in a system that holds complete disregard for the true nature of reality. At the same time they have a knowing that this is exactly what they are doing.  It is like going to a cafeteria choosing between beans and corn, when a number of other options lay behind the chef, but we have no idea that they are there, or that they even exists. Well the chefs are waking up, the people are moving to see past the chef, and we are living in an awakening world, an apocalyptic time (meaning revealing of truth).

 

What right to these entities have on our planet to suppress critical information from us? Why do we let this happen? We let this happen because the mass population does not care. We are approaching a special time, a time that has been known about for thousands of years, a time where enough love energy exists to change the energy this planet has been wrapped up in. E=mc2, the energy that comes from a state of love, is greater than the energy that can generate from fear. So far, we are passing with flying colors  but we have to keep it going even though it is already here, if you live the reality you seek. As we progress, this will become easier, and it will be comforting for us to slide into our natural state of peace, and begin to create the world from there. As an individual, you have the power to change your reality, and it is nobodies place to interfere with another individuals concept of reality. We are here to simply present information that we feel necessary to do so, and those who resonate with it do, and those that don’t, just don’t. Either way, everybody is here to learn from everybody else, no matter what perception of reality they choose to play with.

We simply have not kicked up a big enough fuss, but are in the process of doing so. Information cannot be withheld from humanity if we refuse to blindly accept that reality. When information is released, it might assist some in the realization that all information is within, humanity in a state of waiting for something will not work, humanity in a state of creating something will.  More and more happenings are occurring on our planet to hint at a greater reality we have not yet seen, to hint at greater opportunities for us to capitalize on. It has come to the point where so much information has been suppressed,that we question “truth.”This is wonderful, but we put a limit on ourselves, a box around us that says truth, on the collective level is the same for each individual. We perceive getting a job, paying our bills and finding enjoyment from things many people find enjoyment from as life. Our basic rights and needs are not given to us unless we pay for them, and this is not right, it’s time to get rid of this game, we don’t want it anymore. We are asking, from within, thus getting the message back that it is us who are in charge of the show here, ultimately. Sure some greater things behind the scenes are going on, but we are sovereign, even though the control structure tells us we are not.

Plato had an analogy of a being in a cave. This being was chained into this cave, not knowing what lay outside of the cave, or that an outside even existed. What would happen if he was suddenly made aware of the reality he had never been aware of, all of a sudden? A slow transition into a new understanding of truth and reality is required for humanity to go through at this time, and this is exactly what we are doing. It is required, in order to reduce the shock factor of individuals.

The UFO/ET phenomenon,  for example, on a collective level as of now we are not ready for contact. When we are indeed ready, it will happen. This phenomenon is being incorporated into the human psyche through a variety of different methods, and we have come  a very long way with regards to information that is now available in the public domain. More and more individuals are also starting to have experiences with beings from another place. It is still very important to listen to your intuition. The ability to recognize an agenda behind certain information in the media and the way it is presented is to shape your reality. This is a box in itself, as information does not have to be made public to the masses in order for us to realize it. Most information presented in mass media is not of a love  presenting vibration or energy.  The quest to our natural state of inner peace is coupled with the realization of many different things, above all, that we are all connected, all one, so let us take our knowing and move on.

Sometimes something as simple as recognizing what is in our vaccines, or what the pharmaceutical companies are up to, or the suppression of cancer cures is still too much for some to handle. The mind gets in the way and the programs we are used to seeing tells them that cannot be possible. For some it  is not understandable why such things would be suppressed, and how this can be done by any type of being. All souls are here to play a role, they are here for you to learn, to empty yourself of gasoline even though they might carry the matches.  Many many truths are surfacing, with realization comes advancement, and takes humanity out of being susceptible to outside “dark” influences. Dark is not dark as we perceive it, it is just an experience so no judgment is given to that experience. But humanity is transitioning from and dark energy period, to a more light energy period. 2012 is a change within a mass amount of individuals, a shift in consciousness for the planet and it’s inhabitants, it is the beginning of a new age, a shifting of experience and a significant time in our Universe.

With regards to the cosmos, we scatter off to our comforts and beliefs and refuse to accept certain facts. Sometimes the mind will be open to the possibility of different realities, but will not go as far as to put them in existence for itself. This is still a true statement, and indeed, once we climb out of the box, another box may be on us to climb out of. But to have humanity at a point where we question things that are so blatantly obvious, is an example of the power we have given to those within the pyramid As this power diminishes, we get to step out of our box a little , and come to a closer understanding of truth.

“I am a rock.” – Who told you that you are. Oh I read it in this one book that everyone else has read and told me to read, that’s where I learned I was a rock and that I am nothing else. A good analogy for what has been happening on the planet so far.

We are transitioning, into an age in which we have a say. As we raise our voices, we create awareness on issues we deem to be  questionable. Our DNA is in the process of change, and our awareness of what has been hidden from us is now coming to this surface within all of us. 2012 Is a planetary alignment, a special astrological event that we have never seen before. It is the starting point of a great opportunity, and it is up to us which way we take this planet. The key to change is within you, you  are here for a reason, and your purpose will call to you. Our abilities to perceive our reality as more than just the physical are increasing. We have more capabilities and 2012 is a special marker in the process of our evolution. We have gone through many different ages here on the planet, and we are about to step into a completely new one, so enjoy the ride:) We are  coming to a greater understanding of the cyclic events that are happening within our solar system, galaxy and universe. We are coming to a greater understanding of our weather patterns and the influence of off world factors. Planetary positioning, human activities, our sun, energy in the universe, human induced weather phenomenon, and consciousness.

Sure, we wont see these topics given heavy attention in the academic world, that is because the academic world is another facet of the control structure. Just like energy companies do not want to see the release of free energy technologies, educational institutions do not want human beings to understand what they are, and what is really happening on the planet, it is all one big control mechanism that we are in the process of breaking out of.

You are not a victim of anything, your experiences in life are a part of a much grander picture. We are not just a tiny blue dot sitting out in the middle of space. We are not alone, we have more capabilities and abilities that go beyond the physical. We have intuition, emotion and feeling, together with an open mind, we are very powerful beings. 2012 is a process that we are in now, major astrological events coupled with the awakening of human consciousness is a wonderful synchronicity.

All matter is made up of energy, all matter is vibrating at a specific frequency rate. We are matter, we are energy, we are vibrating and our frequency will continue to elevate as time speeds up.

Much Love
Arjun

Do We ‘Exist’ Before We Are Born? A Woman Who Remembers Shares Her Story

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Susan Manewich shares her memories of her SELF before birth, as well as her memory of incarnating into her mothers womb, what it was like and how she felt.

  • Reflect On:

    Is it possible that we are conscious, in another form, prior to birth? Who are we beyond the mind and body?

Does life exist before birth? This is a question that’s been contemplated for thousands of years. In the Socratic dialogue, Meno by Plato, the character Socrates attempts to prove that life exists before birth. Instead of innate knowledge that we are simply born with, knowledge that simply comes naturally to us, Plato relies on prenatal knowledge to explain our ability to solve problems in mathematics and philosophy, and suggests that we must have known the answers to these problems all along.

Plato, among many others, was convinced that there were such things as absolute beauty and truths. He believed that what we call the ‘soul’ was eternal, and that all knowledge was simply a form of remembering things that our soul knew before birth. To explain his view, he wrote the parable of the cave, where people are sitting around a fire watching shadows of the outside manifest themselves on the wall of the cave. For their entire life, they watched these reflections, and to them, it was a representation of the real world. One day they ventured out of the cave, and the real world was finally revealed to them.

Today, this is happening on multiple levels, so much so that the truth is so ‘painful’ and unbelievable that many prefer to venture back into the cave of ignorance.

Plato believed that, before birth, the soul possesses knowledge, but that knowledge is lost when we enter into the world at birth. Our senses cloud the remembrance of real truths as we enter into the world of illusion and eventually become slaves to our senses. Perhaps this is why many spiritual practices like Buddhism and several yogic philosophies preach the abstinence of sensorial pleasure to an extent, because the more we engage in our senses, the further we drift away from the knowledge of our soul.

This is very interesting because the idea of the soul being an eternal entity is nothing new. Take reincarnation, for example, which is the idea that we experience many different lives not only on our own planet and dimensions, but other ones as well. The topic and research that’s gone into reincarnation is extremely fascinating to say the least, so much so that Carl Sagan stated that reincarnation deserves “serious study” because “young children sometimes report details of a previous life, which upon checking turn out to be accurate and which they could not have known about in any other way other than reincarnation.” (source)

There’s Research To Support It

Now, this does not mean that reincarnation is the be all and end all of the soul’s journey and experience, it might be one option out of several possibilities depending on its purposes, lessons it needs to learn, etc. The University of Virginia’s psychiatrist Jim Tucker is arguably the world’s leading researcher on this topic, and in 2008, he published a review of cases that suggested the existence of reincarnation in the journal Explore.

It makes sense, at least to me, that children are more likely to experience this type of memory recollection because they’re younger in age. So, perhaps they’re able to remember what happened to them prior to being born, before the soul loses its memory after being entering into a human body.

Here’s an article I wrote on multiple children providing details and proof of their past lives here on Earth. Here’s another one of a boy who remembered his past life on Mars. The Mars case is of particular interest, given that Mars was once very much Earth-like and there is evidence that an advanced civilization existed there in the past. You can see my post here and read the study that’s cited. You can also learn more about Mars and its supposed past here.

So, if we have experienced past lives before we were born, did we come here for a reason? Did our souls choose to come here? Are we all here for some sort of specific purpose? Are we here to remember why we came? Is it possible that the soul may forget why it came and goes to sleep, but can also ‘wake up’ and remember why it’s here?

Susan’s Story

Susan A. Manewich is the President of the New Energy Movement and is also a contactee, which is a person who’s been contacted by what we perceive as extraterrestrial life. She has been involved in some of the most extensive research on contactees ever conducted.

We recently interviewed Susan about her research into The Contactee Experience. At the beginning of the interview, she touches upon how she literally remembers incarnating onto this planet and being in her mother’s womb, which signifies her knowledge that she came from somewhere else. This is fascinating as it begs some interesting questions: If her memories are in fact correct, what does this say about who we truly are, and about what we think we know about our reality and our consciousness?

“Literally remember coming from a different space and place… I didn’t lose that consciousness, I remember that… I remember, literally, hearing the call, that I needed to leave where I was, which was in energy form, and I do remember being connected to source, and literally being really excited to come too. I didn’t know it was this planet, let’s just put it this way: it was a call, it was a pull… I do remember the journey of coming through, I remember being energy in the corner of my parents’ bedroom and literally the next thing I know, my next conscious memory is being in my mothers womb probably about 7 mothers or so in Utero.”

We interviewed her for a 3-part series that goes deeper into the topic of contactees, both in regards to beings and ET’s, as well as her work on bringing forth new energy technologies.

The Contactee Experience, which is the first part in the series, is currently available for free for you to watch on demand. You can start watching it here.

In our Hidden Energy Technologies interview with Susan, we explore how she has been vetting free energy technologies for many years now, and has some of the most extensive knowledge out there on these subjects. In our interview with her, we explore these technologies, what’s real and what’s not, and what it will take to actually have these technologies hit the light of day… and it’s not simply by ending the Deep State’s suppression of them.

In the final part, Contactees and The Shift, Susan shares some of the most important and understandable messages regarding contactees. We also get into the most commonly shared messages contactees report, as they relate to the massive global shift in consciousness we are experiencing on the planet today.

As we discuss in the interview series, it’s important to keep in mind that there are multiple forms of contact: there are abductions, which you can read more about here, energetic contact experiences, contact with extraterrestrials, and contact with other types of beings.

If you would like to watch this interview series and learn a lot more about the latest contactee and free energy technology research, start by watching part 1 here.

As backed up by research, most contactees who have been hypnotically regressed, as well as those who haven’t, share shockingly similar stories in their experiences. Dr. David M Jacobs, a recently retired Professor and historian, has stated that the “consistency is mind-boggling.”

It’s not uncommon for ‘ET contactees’ or those who have been regressed to share information that suggests life exists prior to birth. The reason for a lot of the UFO/ET activity we see here today could be directly correlated with the idea that these people have come here for a specific purpose. This is a common feeling among activists and those who have experienced ET/UFO contact, at least a good portion of them.

The Takeaway

Contemplating reincarnation and the existence of life prior to birth is nothing new, as proven by generations of children who remembered their past lives as well as ancient lore and philosophy from around the globe. The information shared within this article isn’t ‘proof’ according to the way our minds have been trained to recognize what ‘proof’ is; instead, it’s something that seems to resonate deeply with many people. Couple that with the extreme consistency between the stories shared by not only children, but by people like Susan as well, the reincarnation theory seems incredibly plausible. Plus, if you look at the work of multiple hypnotic regressionists who’ve worked with people that have experienced ‘extraterrestrial’ contact, it’s definitely interesting to say the least.

Furthermore, if we examine scientific literature associated with parapsychology, quantum physics and consciousness (all related), the idea that consciousness or the soul exists as a separate entity from the body is really not that far off, although consciousness is, in my opinion, something different from the soul.

Supermoon In Libra: Relationship Adjustments

Published

on

We are having a Full Moon in Libra on March 20th-21st depending on where you are located in the world. This is the peak of the Lunar cycle that began on March 6 with a New Moon in Pisces. It will also be the last of three back to back Supermoons happening in 2019, which is when the Moon appears larger and brighter due to its closer proximity to the Earth. The previous one in February was the brightest of the three.

This Full Moon coincides with the Equinox, which is the beginning of Aries season (via the Tropical Zodiac) and is the first of 12 signs. Traditionally, some cultures observe this period as the beginning of a New Year, which makes much more cosmological sense than the calendar New Year. Even this transition from dreamy and floaty Pisces to active and direct Aries tends to be the most obvious and noticeable transition between signs.

During this Full Moon, we can experience either a push-pull or collaboration between the Sun in Aries and Moon in Libra. The energies of it gradually build up and become more noticeable on the day of and days surrounding it. It is also part of the backdrop of the other astrological influences/reflections over the following two weeks.

Aries and Libra are two out of the four Cardinal signs which are the first signs of each quarter of the zodiac. They all have an initiating quality in their own way. Aries is a fire sign ruled by Mars. It is about action, moving forward, pioneering, independence, self-identity, self-orientation, and leadership. It is bold, courageous, and instinctual, yet it can also be aggressive, impulsive, impatient, selfish, and hot tempered.

Libra is an Air sign ruled by Venus. It is about relating, relationships, partnerships, codependency, consideration, harmony, balance, fairness, art, creativity, and beauty. It is sociable, diplomatic, and intellectual, yet it can also be indecisive, passive aggressive, vain, and even judgemental. Although Aries is much more of an initiating sign in comparison to Libra due to the qualities mentioned above, Libra still expresses its Cardinal energy socially and towards consideration.

An interesting thing to mention is that this Full Moon happens right at the beginning of Libra at 0 degrees due to it occurring  on the Equinox. This degree tends to be more potent and sometimes can reflect exploring new experiences or actions connected to that sign.

Full Moon Opposite Sun/Chiron Conjunction, Quincunx Uranus

The Sun is aligned with Chiron, which brings its themes into the opposition of this Full Moon. This could trigger wounds, blockages, and patterns connected to self-identity, independence, willpower, ego, or other Aries themes mentioned in the section above. It can also reflect potential healing, bridging or uniting two parts of something, holistic awareness, and combined with the current Mercury Retrograde in Pisces it could also have a spiritual tone. This can be a source of either potential challenges and/or growth around relationships at this time.

The Full Moon is in a quincunx with Uranus in Taurus, which could reflect changes, surprises, disruptions, new experiences, rebellion, or other curve balls being thrown at us that may require some adjustments. In many cases it will be connected to the themes of the Aries-Libra opposition mentioned and can play out in our relationship dynamics, but it can also manifest in other ways. In Taurus it could have something to do with money, possessions, or values.

Venus Square Mars and Sextile Jupiter, Mars Trine Pluto

Venus, the ruler of Libra, is in Aquarius while in a tight square with Mars in Taurus, which is the ruler of Aries. This aspect emphasizes the potential challenges of this Full Moon. The way we or others assert our personal wants, values, or resources can be at odds with social or romantic aspects of our lives. However, this aspect can also be supportive creatively or sexually, especially considering that Venus is also in a harmonious aspect with Jupiter.

Venus in a sextile with Jupiter in Sagittarius can reflect growth, learning, and overall expansiveness in different types of relationships. In some cases it can be connected to travel/foreign countries, social media, education, and beliefs. However, the developments that could occur might require adjustments in how we assert ourselves.

Mars is in a trine with Pluto, which can be good for actions that are focused, deep, and powerful. It can also be good for applying ourselves in a confident or empowering way and towards making positive changes.

Mercury Retrograde Moving Towards Neptune Before Going Direct

Mercury has been retrograde in Pisces since March 5th, a day before this Lunar cycle started. This retrograde extends the strong Piscean energy into most of Aries season. The actual retrograde ends on March 28th; however, the following days can still feel retrograde-ish. The few weeks following are known as the ‘post shadow,’ which is when its themes conclude and things start to fall into place more smoothly and productively.

While Mercury is transitioning from retrograde to direct, it will be aligned with Neptune. Our intuition can be heightened and we can be divinely inspired. Our thoughts and communications can be revolved around spirituality, compassion, empathy, and sacrifice. This can be a period of magical experiences or interactions with others. However, this can be challenging for rational and linear thinking. We can overlook mundane details easily and can also be confused. You can read more about this retrograde here.

Things To Consider During This Period

What recurring themes have been coming up for you in recent weeks, and what directions are your circumstances pushing you towards? How can you balance your individual needs with your relationship’s needs? Do you or others in your life have any wounds or blockages getting in the way? If so, what can you do to resolve or address the situation?

These are just some examples of themes that could come up during this period; however, there may be other variations of this energy playing out as well.  If you wish to do any sort of intentional release connected to what has come up at this Full Moon, it is best to do so anytime over the two weeks following, when it is waning. The exact moment of this Full Moon is on the night of March 20th/21st at 1:43am Universal Time. You can click here to see what that is in your time zone.

A Simple Trick To Unlock Determination & Focus

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    In a world filled with distractions, the ability to lock in and focus has become harder and harder to master. But rather than looking outside of yourself for a solution, the key may just lie within.

  • Reflect On:

    How many notifications do you receive daily? Are there any Apps that rather than always receiving notifications from you could instead just check at certain times?

A recent study revealed that in the United States, the average smartphone user receives 45.9 push notifications per day, and many of us exceed that number. From Facebook to Instagram to Twitter to WhatsApp to Gmail, everything is constantly vying for our attention.

As a result of this overload, we’re experiencing a collective inability to focus at our highest potential and a reality where the majority of us are consistently fighting off some sort of urge to do something else.

(Fun Fact: Even as I’ve just started to write this article I’ve already seen my phone light up twice with notifications. I’ve now followed my own rules and have turned it over to lock in on the task at hand–more on this later.)

Even if you are part of the dying breed of individuals who have sworn off social media, although you finding and reading this article suggests otherwise, we all seem to be having an incredibly difficult time staying focused.

And with every useless scroll through our Instagram news feed and with every endless YouTube video rabbit hole we fall into, we only further shrink our attention span and strengthen the programming that convinces us that this is normal behaviour.

advertisement - learn more

Assuming that part of why you clicked on this article is because you do have something that you ideally would like to focus on and ultimately accomplish, I’d like to share with you the best tactic I’ve personally found (and some bonus ones) to “lock in.” Believe it or not, this tactic is not a specific exercise, but is instead designed for you to realize that you still have an incredible ability to focus within you. It hasn’t gone anywhere, it’s just been misguided.

In fact, it’s likely getting more use than you could ever imagine.

The best way to explain this further is by using an example. Think of the last time you either: A) lost your phone, or B) forgot to bring a charger and realized that your phone was about to die.

The moment that either of those realities kick in for most of us, we immediately enter a state where nothing else matters. In scenario A, we search everywhere possible, call it from any other device we can get our hands on, and seek out the assistance of everyone available. In scenario B, despite being an introvert on the daily, we suddenly find ourselves engaging in conversation with everyone by asking for a charger, and if one can’t be found we start planning our exit no matter how much fun we’re having pre-low battery.

We’ve all experienced and have seen this before. When assessed like this, it likely sounds like a form of insanity–and I wouldn’t be surprised if it is–but from a completely different perspective, it’s actually fully “locked in” determination.

You see, we all have the capacity to focus on one particular thing and give all of ourselves to it, it’s just that our auto-pilot has become the opposite because of the sheer number of distractions we are exposed to and have become addicted to.

So rather than looking outside of yourself for some practice or technique that’s going to help you focus and finish writing that book, completing the homework, or finally send out those wedding thank you cards, look within and realize that you are still a determination powerhouse just waiting to be re-guided.

Bonus Tips: 1) When working on something important, put your phone on silent and either put it in another room or face down on your desk. 2) Consider turning off notifications and instead just check certain apps at particular points in the day. I’ve personally turned off all notifications from Facebook, Instagram and all audible email pushes.
