9 Extraordinary Superpowers, You Didn’t Know You Already Possessed!

9 Extraordinary Superpowers, You Didn’t Know You Already Possessed!

What we think we “know” on earth, is just a little drop of water in the ocean! Following are some more drops to enhance your knowledge. 

1. Telekinesis

Telekinesis is basically a power or ability to control the physical world with the power of your mind. It’s like moving a particular object without even touching it, but just by thinking about it. A common belief is that psychokinesis works by energy fields or by some sort of “waves” of psychic energy which are actually dense enough to push an object or control it. There are many ways to put your telekinetic abilities into practice. One basic way is to concentrate on an object and thinking of your goal i.e. moving object, which gives the energy or waves to move that object (as per the belief mentioned above). It’ll take time to get the desired result nevertheless it could be worth it.Telekinesis is sometimes also referred as psychokinesis, mind-over-matter or object manipulation.

2. Hypnotism

Hypnotism is the process through which the hypnotist bypasses your conscious mind and connects directly with your sub-conscious mind. It is used for many purposes like getting someone to stop smoking, treating phobias, increasing confidence and self-esteem or motivating someone. It is necessary to point out that hypnotism is pure science and it has nothing to do with black magic or something. You can learn more about hypnotism at sites like:http://www.miltonericksonhypnosis.com or http://stealth1.secrets-101.com. Although it is tough to learn, it can be useful in everyday living. 3. Telepathy Telepathy is a common power possessed by every human being. It is sending a message from one person to another, beyond any medium(excluding mind). We, in everyday life, many a times come across through situations when we are remembering someone or are wishing to talk to someone and at that moment itself that person calls us. Which is a practical example of telepathy. It is not a big deal to practice telepathy. There is one common game which can help you improve your telepathic skills. What you have to do is, tell your friend to think about any random number from 1 to 10 (being in same room) and you concentrate on his mind and try to catch what he is thinking. Take your time. Take the first number which comes to your mind and compare the number with the number which your friend thought about. This will increase telepathic communication between You and your friend. You can increase your game level by increasing the number from 1-10 to 1-100 and so on. Also, you can be at far distance rather being in same room and practice it. It is easy to do and you can easily improvise your telepathic skills by practicing it more often.

4. Psychomancy

Psychomancy is one of the most interesting psychic ability found very rare, used to see past of any object. Practically it is used by psychics hired by police and detectives when a object is found of a missing person, so that they could know about that person by knowing the past of that object.As this ability is rare, its hard to learn.

5. Clairsentience

Clairsentience which means clear sensing, is ability to sense past/future, positive/negative energy,emotional state of a person or object by just watching or touching them.Many people have this ability without consciously knowing it. They feel good or bad about a new person they just met, or a house they recently visited, or a thing they are going to purchase.

6. Astral Projection or Third eye

Astral projection is an experience in which soul leaves the physical body and travel through the astral plane.It allows you to visit places or people far away from you without physically going there. There is a myth that practicing astral projection is dangerous. But as I said, it is a myth. Visit : http://themindunleashed.org/2013/06/20-astral-projection-myths-busted.html for more.

7. Aura Reading

Aura is a Greek-Latin word which means “hue of air” or “shine”. Aura, basically, is a shine or color surrounding each living as well as non-living thing. Your aura shows your emotional/physical qualities, positive/negative feelings, thoughts, past/future and many more things. You can learn and practice reading your own and as well as others auras.

8. Law of Attraction

Law of attraction is the most basic and easiest yet most powerful technique. Many people must know about the movie and book The Secret which tells you every basic thing about the Law of Attraction. The Law of Attraction simply says that “What you think is what you get”. It is a universal truth that what you ask for is what you get whether it is positive or negative. Because your conscious mind only knows the difference between negative and positive. However, the part of your mind which helps you to get what you’ve thought is the sub-conscious mind and it oesn’t know the difference between them. So, it is essential to never think negative or you’ll be served with what you’ve thought. If you want to practice, first of all you have to relax your self for 5 to 10 minutes. Then meditate on it, concentrate on it, feel it, you must feel like the goal is already achieved,  enjoy the achievement, and show some gratitude for it. Then keep doing this until the goal is achieved.

9. Déjà Vu

Déjà vu which means “already seen” is the phenomenon of having strong sensation of having already seen or already felt the event or experience you are going through. For example, sometimes you are in a deep conversation with your friend and suddenly feel like you’ve been through this before or sometimes you visit a place for a first time and you feel like you’ve been there before.This feeling or urge you have is “Déjà vu”. There is a belief that you experience it if you’ve been there or talked like that in your previous life.

How to Stop Multitasking and Become Way More Productive

How to Stop Multitasking and Become Way More Productive

Today we are expected to work in highly disruptive environments. We sit down at our desks, turn on our computer and immediately we are hit with hundreds of emails all vying for our attention.

Our phones are beeping and pinging with new alerts to messages, likes and comments and our colleagues are complaining about the latest company initiative is designed to get us to do more work and spend less time at home.

All these distractions result in us multitasking where our attention is switching between one crisis and the next.

Multitasking is a problem. But how to stop multitasking?

How bad really is multitasking?

It dilutes your focus and attention so even the easiest of tasks become much harder and take longer to complete.

Studies have shown that while you think you are multitasking, you are in fact task switching, which means your attention is switching between two or more pieces of work and that depletes the energy resources you have to do your work.

This is why, even though you may have done little to no physical activity, you arrive home at the end of the day feeling exhausted and not in the mood to do anything.

We know it is not a good way to get quality work done, but the demands for out attention persist and rather than reduce, are likely to increase as the years go by.

So what to do about it?

Ways to stop multitasking and increase productivity

Now, forget about how to multitask!

Here are a few strategies on how to stop multitasking so you can get better quality and more work done in the time you have each working day:

1. Get enough rest

When you are tired, your brain has less strength to resist even the tiniest attention seeker. This is why when you find your mind wandering, it is a sign your brain is tired and time to take a break.

This does not just mean taking breaks throughout the day, it also means making sure you get enough sleep every day.

When you are well rested and take short regular breaks throughout the day your brain is fully refuelled and ready to focus in on the work that is important.

2. Plan your day

When you don’t have a plan for the day, the day will create a plan for you. When you allow outside influences to take control of your day, it is very hard not to be dragged off in all directions.

When you have a plan for the day, when you arrive at work your brain knows exactly what it is you want to accomplish and will subconsciously have prepared itself for a sustained period of focused work.

Your resistance to distractions and other work will be high and you will focus much better on the work that needs doing.

3. Remove everything from your desk and screen except for the work you are doing

I learned this one a long time ago. In my previous work, I worked in a law office and I had case files to deal with. If I had more than one case file on my desk at any one time, I would find my eyes wandering over the other case files on my desk when I had something difficult to do.

I was looking for something easier. This meant often I was working on three or four cases at one time and that always led to mistakes and slower completion.

Now when I am working on something, I am in full-screen mode where all I can see is the work I am working on right now.

4. When at your desk, do work

We are creatures of habit. If we do our online shopping and news reading at our desks as well as our work, we will always have the temptation to be doing stuff that we should not be doing at that moment.

Do your online shopping from another place—your home or from your phone when you are having a break—and only do your work when at your desk. This conditions your brain to focus in on your work and not other distractions.

5. Learn to say no

Whenever you hear the phrase “learn to say no,” it does not mean going about being rude to everyone. What it does mean is delay saying yes.

Most problems occur when we say “yes” immediately. We then have to spend an inordinate amount of energy thinking of ways to get ourselves out of the commitment we made.

By saying “let me think about it” or “can I let you know later” gives you time to evaluate the offer and allows you to get back to what you were doing quicker.

6. Turn off notifications on your computer

For most of us, we still use computers to do our work. When you have email alert pop-ups and other notifications turned on, they will distract you no matter how strong you feel.

Turn them off and schedule email reviewing for times between doing your focused work. Doing this will give you a lot of time back because you will be able to remain focused on the work in front of you.

7. Find a quiet place to do your most important work

Most workplaces have meeting rooms that are vacant. If you do have important work to get done, ask if you can use one of those rooms and do your work there.

You can close the door, put on your headphones and just focus on what is important. This is a great way to remove all the other, non-important, tasks demanding your attention and just focus on one piece of work.

The bottom line

Focusing on one piece of work at a time can be hard but the benefits to the amount of work you get done are worth it. You will make fewer mistakes, you will get more done and will feel a lot less tired at the end of the day.

Make a list of the four or five things you want to get done the next day before you finish your work for the day and when you start the day, begin at the top of the list with the first item.

Don’t start anything else until you have finished the first one and then move on to the second one. This one trick will help you to become way more productive.
