And the big winter storm is here... so I most likely won't get the new computer on Thursday... Eh, we'll just limp along, and it will turn out the way it will turn out... I can handle it.
One of the topics that have come up from students over the past few days is their difficulty to focus.
I say it is ADHD. Now, I am not a doctor, but then again, that's a good thing. Because as long as you have some medication to take, you don't pay attention to anything: you let the meds do the work, and you become a slave. Even if the meds work, Actually, especially if the meds work.
I don't have ADHD. But I do have, from time to time, ADHD symptoms.
I lose my attention to the task I am supposed to do, and go and do something else.
They call that excitement seeking, but if we take a closer look at that, we'll see exactly what it is.
When I don't like to do what I am doing, but I have to do it, and it requires me to stay with it, I become excitement seeking.
The important words here is "I don't like" and "have to"
I have experimented, and if and when I take away the "have to", I can actually do it, and enjoy the time, because I enter a different type of being... different from "having to", being forced to, my freedom is stripped away, I am not good at... beings.
Facebook advertising comes to mind. I don't like to do it. I don't feel I am good at it. I am forced to do it. I feel I have nothing to say about it... I have no freedom. Result: ADHD-like behavior... nothing gets done. Gets started and not finished.
I woke up with this "answer": if you change the being, everything changes.
Those half-sentences above are the tip-offs of the beingness iceberg.
Now, listen up for a sec: other than the Facebook advertising thing, and maybe one other thing, equally benign sounding, I don't have this ADHD like issue anywhere else.
It turns the frontal cortex off and structured thinking becomes impossible... no brain area is available.
It also narrows the visual field that only the dreaded thing you have to focus on occupies it... and the only way to free your attention is by walking away...
But observationally I know that it happens when the person with ADHD is FORCED to focus. Either by a deadline, or a teacher, or a parent... either way, there is a force.
And then there is a "have to"...
And, predictably, the frontal cortex turns off.
Sounds to me like the computer is being overwhelmed and turns off with the dreaded blue screen.
But I know these two students well enough that when there is no pressure, when there is no DEMAND to focus, their brains don't turn off!
Now, if you were me, energy supported transformation maven, would not you want to experiment here? would it not you get excited, turned on, get breathless from the challenge? this simple phenomenon effects about a billion people?
Now, if you remember as far back as two years ago, when I was selling the energy remedies on Amazon? I was looking for names for the energy remedies, and came up with the name "Bright Focus". I mentioned in the description that it might work for people with ADHD.
That is what made Amazon kick me out... ADHD sounds like medication... stepping on the toes of some people who peddle that other stuff.
The Bright Focus was just another name for the Effortless Abundance Remedy...
It works, but why?
It turns out that if you can disengage yourself from "having to" and manage to say "I get to do this" instead... ADHD goes away.
Which energy (of the 192 that is infused in that remedy) does it?
Let's look what it does, OK?
It works like a break, or opening the jaws of a pit bull... and from the energy it releases. The energy goes away, the have-to comes back... and voila the brain turns off after 15 minutes.
It is the explanation of "stupid air"... when in the heat of an argument you don't think to say that smart thing you'll remember after the argument. We have all been there. It is an ADHD-like symptom.
Another way to see "stupid air" is this: you are called on, in a meeting, in a class, and you get all scared, and lose your brain. Literally.
The jaws of the pit bull turn off your frontal cortex, and there you are, stupid.
Now, having seen what turns the brain off: having-to and/or fear, performance anxiety, it is easy for me to see what the remedy does:
it separates you from the pressure.
There can be still pressure, but it's not touching you... you are free, you are loose, and you get to stay brilliant, or if you are not naturally brilliant, you get to stay brain-functioning (is that a word?).
Some of you are like butterflies... you leave pressure in seconds... and you fly to another "flower". You have never had a chance to test if you are smart or stupid... you avoided it. You never actually learned anything, never thought anything through, because you've been dreading the jaws of the pit bull. This is also an ADHD symptom.
You say: stupid as the stupid does, but you keep doing the stupid thing...
Now, what is the conclusion?
The Effortless Abundance remedy, whether you buy the remedy it from me or make your own, disengages the jaws of the pit bull. It is still your job to stay with the job, and to not follow the habitual flight pattern.
Will the audio work for you directly? It depends on how many other capacities you have, and how high your vibration is.
I dare to say, under 200 vibration only the infused energy, aka remedy, works seamlessly for you.
Is there a capacity, a spiritual capacity in the DNA, to do this? You betcha... In the normal course of events, in the normal course of life, only a few people ever open it up. The discipline that leads to it opening up is the fighting monks of the East.
That detached cool is the sign that the jaws of the pit bull never engaged... because the have-to is dropped, the fear is dropped, and there is only one thing: the dance, the beauty, the poetry of the dance.
I bet you are having a hard time imagining together that dance and learning mathematics, writing a paper, or reading a book.
But learning mathematics, writing a paper, and reading a book is a dance for someone who has the detached capacity open... like me.
In some past articles you have seen that there are many different ways to relate to something that is hard. Or dangerous.
- Aloof, the capacity, allows you to operate independently, but not ON what is hard or dangerous. It allows you to be OK, effective, as in a bubble.
- Resilient, the capacity, allows you to be in the fray of things, and be able to push through... mental toughness.
- But if you have ADHD-like symptoms, neither of them will do you much good.
It moves you into your Observer/Witness, where you can enjoy the dance. And leaves only your body in the action: reading, writing, learning... but all your being is in the Observer... so there is no pressure, there is no have-to, there is no sense of danger to react to with the jaws of the pit bull.
Is it automatic? I would say that with the capacity, about 80% of what has been ADHD area, is disengaged.
But in 20% of the cases, where you are certain you can't... you'll still have to call on the capacity. that is what I haven't done in the area of paid advertising. I haven't... because until I wrote this article, I hadn't seen what was holding me back.
It seems that 80% of procrastination comes from this and can be reduced or maybe even eliminated by using the "detached" capacity.
The three capacities, aloof, resilient, and detached work together synergistically. For example, if you don't have the capacity for mental toughness, for resiliency, the detached may not even turn on.
Too complicated for you? You are trying too hard! Your ADHD-like symptoms kicked in... Come back to the article in a few minutes and try again. And breathe... it doesn't have to be fixed. It can be... you may opt to fix it... but it doesn't have to be fixed. It is a normal reaction to have-to and I don't like to.
One more thing: if you have opted for a life of perpetual drama where you are the drama queen, you won't like the calm and collected ways of the detached capacity. Why? because your drama covers up that you are, at present, good-for-nothing... and you are going to want to hide it.
What you don't know is that it is costing you your whole life. And what you don't know is where it's heading... Once the one person who stands by you gets tired of your drama... you'll be alone. Forever.
I teach how to use the detached capacity in the Detached Workshop.
