A 5 Minute Morning Ritual To Start Every Day Off Right

Published

on

What do the first five minutes in a typical day of your life look like?

Does it consist of you rolling over to hit the snooze button in disbelief that morning has already come? Or does it involve you grabbing your phone to see everything that happened on Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, and Twitter while you slept?

No matter how your day currently begins, I’m convinced you could be doing it better. That’s a bold statement, I know, but as someone who has found himself enacting both of the above scenarios, as well as a number of other, equally unhelpful ones, far too often, I now recognize just how impactful the start of your day really is.

It’s time to take control of your life and kickstart every day in the healthiest way possible:

0:00 to 1:00 – Lemon Water

Minute number one is all about hydration. Over the course of the night your body becomes increasingly dehydrated, so it is crucial you consume water (I start with 1 litre) before doing anything else, and particularly before eating.

Rather than just consuming plain old water, amp up your morning hydration by adding organic lemon. The lemon alkalizes the body, gets your digestive juices going, and offers some extra nutrients.

A bonus benefit would be to prepare the lemon water the night before, place it on your nightstand, and consume it before getting out of bed. Both myself and several others have been amazed to see how effective this can be at getting you to the bathroom right around the end of this five minute sequence. To me this is certainly something to consider, whether or not you are among the 63 million Americans who struggle with constipation.

1:00 to 2:00 – The One Minute Meditation

Whether you enjoy meditation or not, it’s hard to begrudge the practice so much that you refuse to do even a single minute of it. A one minute meditation may sound uselessly brief, but the more you do it, the more you realize just how much you can accomplish in such a short period of time.

I’ve found that the best way to do this is to focus on one single thing. Some of my favourites include:

  • Physically focusing on the centre of my forehead with the intention of opening and removing any blockages from my third eye
  • Physically focusing on my heart with the intention of feeling love
  • Feeling a flow of energy between my brain and heart to increase their connectivity and coherence
  • Focusing on the centre of my body with the intention of aligning my chakras

Too hippie-dippie for you? Just spend a minute focusing on your breath to give your mind a chance to start the day more peacefully.

If you’re interested in learning to make the most of  your shortened meditation experience, I recommend One-Moment Meditation: Stillness for People on the Go.

2:00 to 3:00 – Gratitude

Life can undoubtedly be a challenging experience filled with a number of trials and tribulations, but it is also a blessing with a lot to be thankful for. Before getting caught up in the hustle and bustle of life, minute three is all about expressing a little gratitude for the many gifts you’ve been given.

To do this, simply challenge yourself to come up with 10 things that you are grateful for right now — and yes, they can be the same 10 each day. To show you just how simple this can be, I’ll come up with 10 for myself right now:

  1. I am thankful to be alive right now.
  2. I am thankful for the love and support I receive from my family.
  3. I am thankful for the car that I drive.
  4. I am thankful for the conversation I was able to have last night with my friend Cam.
  5. I am thankful for the sun that is shining today.
  6. I am thankful for the lessons I am learning from the book I am currently reading.
  7. I am thankful for the computer that I am typing this article on.
  8. I am thankful for having the courage to share information with the world.
  9. I am thankful for Collective Evolution and the platform it provides me with.
  10. I am thankful for the desire I feel within me to consistently improve upon myself.

Once again, the more you do this the easier it will become, and the more likely you are to find yourself accomplishing this task in even less than one minute.

3:00 to 4:00 – Bounce It Out

Now it’s time to get moving, and what better way to do it than with the exercise that NASA called “the most efficient, effective form of exercise yet devised by man”? What is this incredible exercise you ask? It’s bouncing, which you can do by making a minor investment in a rebounder/mini trampoline.

Here is a recent video I put together outlining five of the best reasons why you should make a rebounder a part of your daily life:

I now spend more than a minute on a rebounder daily, but I love getting that minute in first thing in the morning to get all of that energy flowing through my body.

4:00 to 5:00 – Shout It Out Loud

Now that you’ve given your body the physical boost it needs, it’s time to support it with some genuine confidence. The tool that I find particularly effective at accomplishing this is incantations, something that I was introduced to by Tony Robbins in the audio book The Power to Shape Your Destiny: Seven Strategies for Massive Results.

Incantations (in the non-magical sense) are statements you repeat with the intention of bringing yourself to fully embody and believe them. To do them most effectively, Tony suggests you say them with force and let your body language match the intensity with which you deliver them.

To understand more about incantations I suggest you check out this article I put together about them earlier this year. If you have the time to do them for 10 minutes, that’s great, but if not, pack them into one minute to round off this five minute morning routine in a powerful and impactful way.

5 Brutally Honest Truths About Anxiety You Need To Accept Before You Can Overcome It

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Anxiety impacts an estimated 10% of teenagers and 40% of adults in the United States. While there are countless techniques that can help with overcoming it, there are 5 key mental shifts that can drastically assist in the process of overcoming it.

  • Reflect On:

    What beliefs do you hold about anxiety? Whether it currently impacts you or a loved one, how can you look at it in a more healthy way?

As a former severe anxiety sufferer, I beyond sympathize with those of you that are still entrenched in the unpredictable, overwhelming and oftentimes flat out scary experience that is anxiety.

For several years, anxiety was my unwanted sidekick that at its peak not only prevented me from properly eating and sleeping, but convinced me that I would never again be able to live another minute of my life without it. But as the restless nights, unhealthy thoughts, and panic attacks continued to mount, I eventually reached a point where I knew that the reality I was experiencing simply wasn’t sustainable.

I personally committed to seek out every resource I could to learn and apply in hopes of conquering anxiety without the use of medication -since the side effects always have and continue to terrify me. While much of what I came across simply didn’t work, there also was a great deal that did. But more than anything, what surprised me about my journey was how much of it was rooted in how I perceived and approached the mental health condition that impacts an estimated 10% of teenagers and 40% of adults in the United States.

Here are 5 brutally honest truths about anxiety that I believe you need to accept before you can successfully overcome it for good:

1. It cannot be “cured” overnight

While there are a number of techniques that can help stop or at the very least dramatically weaken an anxiety attack when it strikes, anxiety as a whole cannot be conquered in a day. Every tool that proved itself as effective in not only conquering my own anxiety, but the anxiety of dozens of others I’ve had to the opportunity to work with, took persistence to properly apply.

For example, practices such as the emotional freedom technique (aka tapping) can be powerful at sending signals to a number of critical acupressure points on your body to help calm yourself down, but learning to do it properly takes time. So if you’re serious about eradicating anxiety from your life, be ready to put the work in.

Helpful note: If long-term solutions seem daunting and/or impossible to you, remind yourself that continuing to live your life with anxiety as prevalent as it is doesn’t feel any better. This mental shift helped inspire me on countless occasions to continue to practice what I needed to master.

2. Hiding it never helps

While much of the taboo surrounding mental health is thankfully dissipating by the day, it still amazes me how many of us opt to keep our experience to ourselves. Whether it be fuelled by embarrassment, fear, or an inability to explain it, there are far too many of us who never admit what we’re going through and therefore are left to fend for ourselves.

One of the best decisions I ever made was being completely open with those closest to me -even with my mom whose overwhelming worry only seemed to make things worse. Given the unpredictable nature to anxiety, you need to have the freedom to do what you need to do to deal with it, and one of the only ways that becomes possible is to ensure those you are closest to know what’s going on.

3. But neither does over-identifying with it

I’ll be honest, one of the most challenging aspects to working with those with anxiety ever since I opened myself up to that world is the number of people who rightfully hate it, but wear it like a badge. I so desperately want to help anyone and everyone that I can, but that’s so often halted by the roadblock of believing it’s a cemented part of us that we are a victim to.

Rather than dwelling in victimhood, choose to take responsibility for your anxiety. I can say from experience that you’ll begin to actually deal with it much quicker.

4. No matter how intense it can get, every bout with anxiety has an end

When fully engaged, an anxiety or panic attack can often feel like it’s going to last forever. The truth is, in my experience and in the experience of talking to several others, it can’t… your body simply wouldn’t allow it.

The actual panic itself is often very short lived, it’s the reaction to it that we have a tendency to let linger. Remind yourself that what you resist, persists. Why? Because you’re communicating with it that you still have something to gain and fully go through by it being there. What you accept takes its course, finds its limit and moves on. By accepting the anxiety’s existence, you allow it to become as big as it can (which often isn’t as big as our fear of it tends to make us feel that it will be), it sees how limited its power is -in a body emanating acceptance of the experience -and it begins to pass.

Helpful note: Boost your confidence in this by reflecting on every other experience with severe anxiety you’ve had in the past. Have any of them lasted forever? This simple reflection should help to provide your mind with mental proof that this too shall pass.

 5. It’s not about getting rid of anxiety, it’s about overcoming your fear of it

A lot of people ask me how I can confidently say that I’m now anxiety free. And the truth is, in a traditional sense I can’t. Anxiety, and everything it previously used to trigger me into it, still rears its ugly head from time to time, but the difference lies in how I react to it.

Rather than allowing it to lock me up in a state of fear of where it’s going to take me and for how long, I now choose to ground myself in the knowing that I am bigger than it. So when it comes to overcoming anxiety, I find it’s incredibly helpful to know that it’s not about reaching a state where it never comes up at all, but is instead about strengthening the aspects to yourself that make you no longer susceptible to it.

It can be compared to the process of quitting smoking. Even after you quit, cigarettes will not cease to exist. They will instead be just as easily accessible as they were when you were smoking a pack a day. The difference lies in how you react to the temptations of it. The more you say “no”, the less likely it is to ever even bother coming into your conscious attention since it knows it won’t get anywhere even if it tries.

Stanislav Grof On The Healing Potential Of Non-Ordinary States Of Consciousness

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Many believe that Non-Ordinary states of consciousness have the capacity to heal those who are suffering. These states of consciousness can be accessed in a number of ways.

  • Reflect On:

    In most culture, except in western industrial society, these states are revered with high regard. How often do you practice exploring different states of consciousness through meditation or breathwork?

Stanislav Grof is a psychiatrist with over 60 years of experience in research of non-ordinary states of consciousness. Non-ordinary meaning something that is different from your typical waking consciousness and according to Grof, these states can be reached with the use of psychedelic substances, trance-inducing states or Holotropic Breathwork.

All of which can trigger an experience that has the potential to unlock a new level of insight and awareness into one’s own consciousness.

Grof’s early research in the clinical uses of psychedelic substances was conducted at the Psychiatric Research Institute in Prague, this research focused on the healing potential of LSD and other psychedelic substances. In 1969, Grof became Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at the John Hopkins University and continued his research as Chief of Psychiatric Research at the Maryland Psychiatric Research Center in Catonsville, MD.

As Grof says in the video below, “The Western industrial civilization is the only group in the entire human history that doesn’t hold non-ordinary states in great esteem and doesn’t have any use for them, actually has pathologized them. Every other culture has spent a lot of time and a lot of energy trying to develop ways of inducing non-ordinary states.”

Why Are We Disconnected From These States Of Consciousness?

One might wonder why this westernized society seems to be so disconnected from understanding the potential that unlocking these non-ordinary states can hold, but regardless of how this system is designed, many are finding ways to experience these states. We explore them by taking plant medicines such as ayahuasca, listening to trance-inducing music, participating in drum circles, going into sweat lodges, holotropic breathwork and many other modalities that we indeed have access to.

It would seem that regardless of what the status quo is in this westernized version of the world there is something that resides deep within us that seeks out these non-ordinary states in order to get outside of ourselves and have a new experience, that which can bring new levels of insight and awareness to anyone who is willing to try one or more of these states out for themselves.

But what is it about these states of consciousness that can cause such great healing for so many people? There are many theories about this, but we have seen a ton of research from the John Hopkins University and organizations such as the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) that proves that this healing capacity is real. From treating anxiety, depression, addiction, PTSD, and deep-rooted trauma, it is clear to see that these substances do have the capacity to heal a variety of different ailments.

Grof is an expert in this realm, and in the following video interview, he shares exactly why he feels that there is great healing potential in the Non-Ordinary States of consciousness, check it out.

Why Humanity Is So Obsessed With Finding Aliens Right Now

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Behind closed doors, quietly, billions are researching and trying to learn about the reality of aliens. It is one of the biggest topics being explored by humanity right now and there is a deep reason for this.

  • Reflect On:

    Why are we so enthralled by the reality of ET life? What would happen to our consciousness if we learned they were real and that there were millions of races? How would daily life change?

The biggest secret behind why ET and UFO disclosure has been suppressed is something that isn’t discussed all that much. We typically hear about things like technology suppression, specifically energy systems. How do these crafts get here? What propulsion systems do they use? These questions lead people towards the reality that the technologies of UFO craft ultimately would disrupt our fossil fuel energy oligarchy so much that it would also collapse our economies in some ways.

Of course, this would not be such a bad thing. Why? Because when you consider that this would mean having endless and ‘free’ energy, cost for goods would drop dramatically. Not just that but, when you begin to examine the ease in creating systems based around abundance, it becomes incredible to consider what is truly possible.

An endless supply of food grown locally, everywhere! Endless energy, installed everywhere! Cars and building facilities that do not create pollution. We could essentially live in a society built such that we do not need to be enslaved by money or debt because abundance would simply become a natural happening of a society built with abundant technology, that’s harmonious, in place.

We can all see the value of such disclosures, and the reason why this would be covered but. But there is something even deeper.

The Biggest Secret

The question is, if we know these technologies exist, and they are being suppressed. And if we know that whistleblowers and people have already reverse engineered or built these things, and not all have been killed or threatened, what is the reason why these things are held back? Why do we still deny these realities en masse?

The truth is, it comes down to consciousness. We’ve been saying this since the inception of CE in 2009: solutions are there, but they won’t come until humanity is ready. What does this ACTUALLY mean to be ready? It means growing up enough as a race, that we can actually be responsible for what it is we will have access to. Not just that, but to be able to say we have ‘graduated’ in a sense, to say we are beyond our old ways.

advertisement - learn more

While that sounds like a loaded few sentences, and they are in a sense, all that is really being said here is, humanity has been stuck in a cycle of experience where we continually see everything, and everyone as separate from us. We are individuals, living out our identities and lives and we are simply here to survive. We believe the limiting ideas of what our reality is and should be and thus we create that reality consciously. Our collective belief about how our world should be is directly tied to what actually happens.

But there is this feeling deep within us at this time, and I know you feel it, where we are beginning to deeply question our ways. How we treat one another, our political systems, the elite manipulation and control that exists, the existential reality of who we are and how we are truly just consciousness, all connected. These deep questions are asking us to explore who we truly are and why we are truly here. And many of us are doing so. This is beginning to create instability and change in our system because the consciousness that holds up our old world, is beginning to crack, and a new one is emerging.

It’s On Us

As our consciousness continues to shift, through us truly doing our own questioning, changing our own patterns, habits, thoughts, and actions, we will begin to truly create the solutions necessary to create a world where we can thrive. And disclosure of technologies will come forth. It comes down to US having to do this work, not governments, not someone else coming to save us. It’s about creating an entire populace with the mentality of truly being empowered and self-responsible, as opposed to needed governance and feeling helpless.

This is why the greatest reason why ET reality is so suppressed comes down to consciousness because with an introduction to ET life, comes an entire myriad of experience we have not been exposed to.

In the video below I explain what this means deeply, and how we can begin opening up the doors to mass contact with ET’s.
