Turning Procrastination into Action

Turning Procrastination into Action

 

It takes longer to say the word “procrastination” than it oftentimes takes to begin what needs doing. House cleaning, work-related projects, doing taxes, the list of things people put off is endless. Trouble is we still have to do them.

If you don’t want to do something, for whatever the reason, change your attitude about doing it. Make it fun, make it a challenge, make doing it into something positive because the sooner you complete the task the better you will feel. So how do you change your attitude?

Change your brainwaves. You know, the state of mind you enter when you tell yourself you don’t want to do something – change that! The best way, the fastest and most simplest way for that to happen is by using the DAVID Delight Pro light and sound mind machine by Mind Alive, Inc.

Here’s how: First, select Session 5 in the Meditation category. It is a 36 minute brainwave frequency entrainment session that gradually lowers your conscious awareness into the Theta mind state for creative visualization. During the session picture the task that is making you procrastinate and ponder ways of making it fun, doable and how easily it can be completed. At session’s end, go back to your Delight Pro and choose Session 3 in the Energize category. That is a 20 minute session proven effective through scientific research for getting energized and motivated. So within an hour you will have the right mindset to successfully complete the project that you have spent far more time procrastinating about.

 

Try this approach and you will find it to be a valuable tool for those times when you say to yourself you would rather procrastinate than do what needs to get done. You’ll do a lot more in less time than before. And you’ll feel damn good about yourself too!

Belizean Visualization

Belizean Visualization

 

We all have an idea about what AVS session is our favorite. For me, it was finding a way of re-creating the Belizean attitude into a light and sound session. Their music, the people, their friendliness, the colorful variety of animal and marine life, the sound of the Caribbean ocean would make one of the most outrageous mind machine sessions ever. Their environmental stimulation appears to adhere into one ‘Schumann Resonance-type’ frequency that takes human-consciousness into off-set brainwave frequencies that only experiencing these stimuli could remotely begin to describe.

Life is relaxed, there is no pretense, no bullying, no shaming, just kindness. The attitude of San Pedro on Ambergris Caye is what makes me keep coming back. It is so unlike the attitude of Los Angeles where many are of the belief that material bullshit defines who you are.

Being from Los Angeles I’ve watched the region evolve, and today it can be a high-energy place with variation being the norm, and that is why it’s fun to introduce Angelenos to light and sound. Seems everyone could use this type of brainwave-altering entrainment tool – often!

 

I use a light and sound machine on a semi-regular basis, and when I do, oftentimes I visualize Ambergris Caye, a small island a few miles off the Belizean coast. I picture myself sitting on the rooftop balcony, looking out at the waves as they break over the Belizean Barrier Reef; only the Great Barrier Reef in Australia is bigger, less than ½ mile from where I’m sitting. I smell the fresh air, the sound of birds, the warmth of the sun, the sensation of all things good.

This visualization, compliments of my DAVID Delight Plus mind machine, brings me back to that instant relaxation in sync with party atmosphere feelings of Ambergris Caye, of paradise – produced by nature and wonderful people who understand the joy of wholesome beauty. I wanted the right mix of frequencies and with the DAVID, I also got the Session Editor software. That enabled me to design frequencies into a session, download it into my Delight Plus unit, and experiment re-designing sessions till I got it what felt right to me.

I guess you can say that’s my happy place. We all have those little corners in our mind where we can go and just plain chill. The Delight Plus by Mindalive guides me to mine. If you’d enjoy accessing your happy state of mind faster, with the effects of your visualization session lasting longer, try a mind machine session and allow yourself to be guided to yours.

Turning an Annoyance into Fun the Light & Sound Way

Turning an Annoyance into Fun the Light & Sound Way

The San Fernando Valley may be an urban area with too much concrete, noise and crazy drivers, but it also provides frequent visits from wildlife. Just last week a mountain lion was tranquilized and relocated back to the foothills from two blocks over. Opossums stop by for water, squirrels raid the bird feeder and demand unsalted nuts, butterflies and Hummingbirds brighten our yard, even a Peregrine Falcon frequently stops by in hope of an easy score. The coyotes can scale our brick walls with ease and are definitely unwelcome, but that’s a different story for another time.

This is about a raccoon. He is smart, handsome and if he could talk would be the first one to tell you so. He can also be very messy and that became annoying…

So I thought, I like this raccoon, how can I get him to stop rummaging through everything on his daily visits? If he wants to drink from our pool that’s fine, but the constant messes have got to stop. Besides, a neighbor a few houses up feeds him daily, so he’s not starving. The chlorine level of our pool is at the very lowest level so the water isn’t harmful for him to ingest. Heck, just ask all the other backyard critters.

All this thinking turned into brain chatter, too much internal chatter and that became annoying…

I’ve found the best way for me to rid my mind of constant chatter is to do a light and sound session. So I did. A 20 minute low Alpha brainwave entrainment program designed for creativity using my DAVID Delight Pro mind machine.

Half way through the session I had a profound revelation, or I should say a really good idea for getting him to change his ways in a very non-intrusive way. My daughter had given me a little yellow remote controlled truck. It isn’t fast, more for traversing grass, dirt and uneven terrain. I could use it to block his path to the back porch. Good thought, wouldn’t harm him, might work.

It did. I placed the remote truck on the back porch and when he showed up for his early morning foray, I guided the truck between the pool and garden and stopped. A couple of quick starts and stops of the truck when he advanced got through to him. 2 days of this later he got my message. No more rummaging and messing up the porch, just stopping by for his early morning drink. It was a fun little experiment with positive results.

It’s a little thing, but illustrates how doing a light and sound session can help turn a messy situation into something fun. Mind machines really help find solutions to life’s problems, even little annoying ones.
