Alpha brain – I’m on day 4 or so and I notice a gigantic difference. I have a different kind of energy. Something I’m not sure If i’ve experienced before. I’ve been jacked up on different things in my time 🙂 but nothing this clear and clean. By that, I mean, Years ago, I tried all types of energy drinks, those evil 5 hour energy shots, caffeine pills of all sorts and all of them have made me feel sub par. Sure, you have energy when taking them but your mind is racing, your heart pounding, your mouth dry & your head aching. I haven’t noticed any negative side effects from the Bulletproof coffee nor the Alpha brain. I’m going to try the rest of the bottle and see how I feel without it. It also says on the label that you can take it at night for lucid dreaming. That, I am very interested in. I have always been fascinated with dreams. What the hell are they?! Does anyone really know .. there are scientifically supported theories but nothing is totally concrete. No one has a definitive answer. Since I was a kid, I’ve always believed in dream decoding but the problem is, I have never really gotten anywhere with it. Sure, you can use the dream situation and look at symbols and use the feeling of the dream to relate to life situations or problems but just because you know that you are stressed or feeling defeated or guilty or opportunistic doesn’t mean you know what to do with it. I think that is where the disconnect is. Decode your dream but the only thing you’re getting is confirmation that what is happening in your life is really happening. An “Oh man, even my dream says this is a problem” sort of thing. That is why I love float tanks.
I like to call it a think tank even though the benefits are both physical and cognitive. You go in there, and the first 20 minutes are like a brief summary of your life’s current events. The last twenty minutes often end with a transition from beta brainwaves to theta, which usually only occurs briefly before sleep and briefly before waking. In a float tank, the theta state can last indefinitely without the losing consciousness. You can use the theta state as a tool for enhanced creativity and problem solving or for super learning, and the more you float the longer the Theta state lasts. The puzzles pieces fall into place. It’s the equal to a vacation or hours of meditation. You really get to know yourself in there. You can’t lie to yourself. You see character flaws, the reasons you’ve acted or done the things you have and how to fix them. That is what I love. I’m all about becoming a better version of myself and bringing to light whatever it is that might be holding me back. Why not!? What the hell else is there?! May as well get the full life experience! I don’t always get to a float tank though so I’m hoping that maybe Alpha brain with help. I’ve read reviews saying that the lucid dreaming end of it didn’t work for some people. I’ll blog about anything cool that happens though. What I love, is those experiences that you have in life when there is no room for self-doubt. The times when It’s like information from an unknown source has entered your brain and you know it’s right, you just know. I think everyone has those experiences from time to time. Call it whatever you want to call it. Whether you say it’s intuition or cosmic connection, god, logic, I don’t know but I’ll say that when you meditate or float or take part in other substance induced vacations, those “Just know” experiences happen a lot more often. You really need that time to shut everything off and get the answers to life. I don’t mean you’re going to figure out life by floating. I just mean, You’ll know the path you’re heading in is right, you’ll have a sixth sense over the directions to take, you’ll see yourself and other people in your life more clearly. You’ll love more fully. At least, those are my experiences. I’m always longing for some kind of higher level or eureka moment where things just fall into place. And I know it’ll happen.
I don’t listen to those people who reply “Chyeah, pff, we all are” or “Good luck with that” That kind of shit can go live its miserable life somewhere far away from me. Those are only opinions, I know but a lot of time it is telling into someone’s life perspective. The way I see it though is there is something seriously wrong with raining on someone else’s parade. So you think what someone else is saying is too sunny side up. That’s fine but You need to ask yourself why do you feel the need to dampen there’s by putting your opinion on them. Why is someone else’s happiness uncomfortable for you? I think we all know people like this. I don’t get it and I don’t want to. Fix Yourself. Actually, I used to get deeply engaged with that kind of thing. I felt like I could enlighten someone who was holding themselves back because of their shitty perspective on life. I thought If I just showed them a new way of thinking that everything for them, would change. I’m not talking about shitty disposition spreaders but people severely misguided. What I’ve found, and this might be just for me, but I found that I end up feeling misguided too. I ended up feeling lost, when you sacrifice too much for the wrong people, they somehow turn you their color. And maybe that’s just me, maybe I’m too faint hearted but I try to keep it black and white nowadays. I’m a chameleon at heart & I need to actively watch who I surround myself with.
I could go on forever because I think of the possible contradictions in my statements. You always hear people saying things about judging other people and that being a negative thing. It is when you aren’t doing any self-reflection of your own. What I truly think is that we are who we are given the circumstances. I think that belief is the root of what had me in some pretty terrible situations throughout my life. I still believe that even with the most evil people we cannot say with certainty that had we had the same upbringing and circumstances in life that our brains wouldn’t be messed up as well.There is no way to tell if you would or wouldn’t because you’re filtering it through your life experiences to date. The way you see it now is because you are who you are now. You can’t say what it would look like from a traumatized or neglected perspective. I think this. I just don’t like to get personal people who are terrible. I think at the root of it all, we are all the same. The mistake I’ve made in that past is that I think that I can get through the layers and layers of dysfunction and at some point or another there is an energy transfer and I get weighed down by the heaviness. We don’t have to judge, and pretend that we’re better than anyone else. But if it were survival of the fittest, which I also believe it is. Protect what is beautiful about you and stay the fuck away from energy drainers, creepy dudes, liars, anyone you feel isn’t contributing to a better life for you. Even people who constantly misunderstand you can be draining, someone who is constantly misinterpreting your intentions is poisonous as well. Have peace knowing that those types of people are all apart of the mix and they have their place here in this world as well. Not everyone is meant to live a certain way or triumph through their problems. There are so many inspiring, lovely people in the world that can uplift you, understand you and put things in greater perspective. I say, seek them out. Be full of life and love, Have fun and stay the fuck away from anyone that doesn’t fit the standards you have set for yourself.
Wow. This blog went way off track. Mini Rant complete.
