Graduation, the end of the journey?
« on: May 17, 2010, 07:32:37 pm »
Hello everyone

Well this week I am graduated. I have completed my six months
on Brain EV and then the one week going through the six sessions.

Wow, I can hardly believe that I stuck it out and went through the
whole thing. This is definitely one of the benefits that I got from
this program. The thirty minute sessions makes it a do-able daily
habit as compared to longer sessions.

Some of the things I noticed (remember, this is my subjective
experience based on my personality). I am a 9 on the Enneagram
scale, btw. That means at my weak side I tend to retreat into
comfort and not face issues of conflict, including handling my
finances.  You can get a get a free evaluation for yourself at
http://www.enneagraminstitute.com/

So initially I found myself attacking and getting all my bills paid
off. I tended to have bills lie around and forget about them for
months. I would then grudgingly pay parts of them off and feel
really stressed about doing that. During this six months, I have
had a lot of my finances automated on my iPhone and I now
have a bird's eye view of my status. I have caught up with all
my bills (they are current with nothing outstanding)

That change by itself is worth the program many times over for
me.

Another change I have noticed, is my ability to internally bounce
back from conflict or difficult situations. Externally, I usually have
remained very calm and collected while building up internal stresses.
Then I would de-stress by escaping from doing anything for a few
days or a couple of weeks. This of course would aggravate my
wife and others around me. The change was subtle at first but now
it allows me to identify when things are beginning to go wrong inside
me and gets me to resolve them before they build up a lot of stress.
Consequently, I feel less stressed internally and less inclined to
"escape".

This program has also expanded my desire and curiosity into everything
brain much more than anything has before that. I am reading voraciously
about any development, supplements and technologies related to the
brain.

I have already started a new program (message me privately if you
want to know about it) and will come back to Brain EV in about three
months or so. But definitely I will be using Level 5 on and off as I need
it. It was the most delicious level for me.

As this process winds down, my last few posts had indicated that I was
finding some agitation and antsy feelings internally. These are issues
that were deeply embedded in me that are finally coming to my conscious
awareness. Even though they are a nuisance right now, I am glad to
see them in the light of day. Hopefully my next few weeks will resolve them.

Finally, I have started to focus on getting my internet business off the
ground. That has been a sticking point for me for a few years. Again
Brain EV has given me the tools to tune up my mind to get this done.

Thank you Brain EV team for this awesome technology.

I would love to discuss this with any one who cares to engage me.

OK so I am listening to Level 5 a couple of times a week now.

What I have started on just yesterday is Byron Katie's "The Work"

I will share with you a little of this now for a bit of understanding.

It is really a meditation based on four questions that you ask
yourself internally and answer them as bluntly as you can.

They are:
  • Is it true? (whatever the issue is)
  • Can you absolutely know that it's true? (gets you thinking even more)
  • How do you react, what happens, when you believe that thought? (now you are digging into your head)
  • Who would you be without that thought? (ok, now who am I really? Do I need this thought?)

After that you take your issue and put it in the converse sense.
And see how you feel about it.

There is a bit more to it. But essentially this is the process.

The reason I like this is because along with the theta meditation of
Level 5, this allows you to actively think (and ruminate) on issues
and get to the bottom of them. When you go into theta after
having bubbled your issue, your mind will find the solutions and
resolutions to what bothers you.

Try it!!

Wow, Tarek,
thank you SO MUCH for sharing your experiences so eloquently.

What you write as related to finances and regarding conflict: smthg I could have written myself, honestly! Now all I need is an Iphone  ;D

Also: Katie Byron's work has been key to improving my relationships with dear ones. Instead of re-treating or criticizing, I know now better and FEEL so much better. It's painful when you're faced with the image in the mirror, but then, once you accept instead of resist the face, things just seem to disolve.

Congrats for all the inner/outer work!

Warm greetings,
E.
