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 Focus and Concentrate Better to Boost Productivity

How to Focus and Concentrate Better to Boost Productivity

We live in a world of massive distraction. No matter where you are today, there is always going to be distractions. Your colleagues talking about their latest date, notification messages popping up on your screens, and not just your mobile phone screens. And even if you try to find a quiet place, there will always be someone with a mobile device that is beeping and chirping.

With all these distractions, it is incredibly difficult to concentrate on anything for very long. Something will distract you and that means you will find it very difficult to focus on anything.

So how to focus and concentrate better? How to focus better and produce work that lifts us and takes us closer towards achieving our outcomes?

1. Get Used to Turning off Your Devices

Yes, I know this one is hard for most people. We believe our devices are so vital to our lives that the thought of turning them off makes us feel insecure. The reality is they are not so vital and the world is not going to end within the next thirty minutes.

So turn them off. Your battery will thank you for it. More importantly though is when you are free from your mobile distraction addiction, you will begin to concentrate more on what needs to get done.

You do not need to do this for very long. You could set a thirty-minute time frame for being completely mobile free. Let’s say you have an important piece of work to complete by lunchtime today. Turn off your mobile device between 10 am and 11 am and see what happens.

If you have never done this before, you will feel very uncomfortable at first. Your brain will be fighting you. It will be telling you all sorts of horror stories such as a meteorite is about to hit earth, or your boss is very angry and is trying to contact you. None of these things is true, but your brain is going to fight you. Prepare yourself for the fight.

Over time, as you do this more frequently, you will soon begin to find your brain fights you less and less. When you do turn on your device after your period of focused work and discover that the world did not end, you have not lost an important customer and all you have are a few email newsletters, a confirmation of an online order you made earlier and a text message from your mum asking you to call about dinner this weekend, you will start to feel more comfortable turning things off.

2. Create a Playlist in Your Favourite Music Streaming App

Many of us listen to music using some form of music streaming service, and it is very easy to create our own playlists of songs. This means we can create playlists for specific purposes.

Many years ago, when I was just starting to drive, there was a trend selling driving compilation tapes and CDs. The songs on these tapes and CDs were uplifting driving music songs. Songs such as C W McCall’s Convoy theme and the Allman Brothers Band’s, Jessica. They were great songs to drive to and helped to keep us awake and focused while we were driving.

Today, we can create playlists to help us to focus on our work. Choose non-vocal music that has a low tempo. Music from artists such as Ben Böhmer, Ilan Bluestone or Andrew Bayer has the perfect tempo.

Whenever you want to go into deep, focused work, listen to that playlist. What happens is your brain soon associates when you listen to the playlist you created with focused work and it’s time to concentrate on what it is you want to do.

3. Have a Place to Go to When You Need to Concentrate

If you eat, surf online and read at your desk, you will find your desk a very distracting place to do your work. One way to get your brain to understand it is focused work time is, to use the same place each time for just focused work.

This could be a quiet place in your office, or it could be a special coffee shop you use specifically for focused work. Again, what you are doing is associating an environment with focus.

Just as with having a playlist to listen to when you want to concentrate, having a physical place that accomplishes the same thing will also put you in the right frame of mind to be more focused.

When you do find the right place to do your focused work, then only do focused work there. Never surf, never do any online shopping. Just do your work and then leave. You want to be training your brain to associate focused work with that environment and nothing else.

If you need to make a phone call, respond to an email or message, then go outside and do it. From now on, this place is your special working place and that is all you use it for.

Every morning, I do fifteens minutes of meditation. Each time, I sit down to do my meditation, I use the same music playlist and the same place. As soon as I put my earphones in and sit down in this place, my mind immediately knows it is meditation time and I become relaxed and focused almost immediately. I have trained my brain over a few months to associate a sound and a place with relaxed, thoughtful meditation. It works.

4. Get up and Move

We humans have a limited attention span. How long you can stay focused for depends on your own personal makeup. It can range from between twenty minutes to around two hours. With practice, you can stay focused for longer, but it takes time and it takes a lot of practice.

When you do find yourself being unable to concentrate any longer, get up from where you are and move. Go for a walk, move around and get some air. Do something completely different from what you were doing when you were concentrating.

If you were writing a report in front of a screen, get away from your screens and look out the window and appreciate the view. Take a walk in the local park, or just walk around your office. You need to give your brain completely different stimuli.

Your brain is like a muscle. There is only so much it can do before it fatigues. If you are doing some focused work in Photoshop and then switch to surfing the internet, you are not giving your brain any rest. You are still using many of the same parts of your brain.

It’s like doing fifty pushups and then immediately trying to do bench presses. Although you are doing a different exercise, you are still exercising your chest. What you need to be doing to build up superior levels of concentrated focus is, in a sense, do fifty pushups and then a session of squats. Now you are exercising your chest and then your legs. Two completely different exercises.

Do the same with your brain. Do focused visual work and then do some form of movement with a different type of work. Focused visual work followed by a discussion with a colleague about another unrelated piece of work, for example.

The Bottom Line

It is not difficult to train your brain to become better at concentrating and focusing, but you do need to exercise deliberate practice. You need to develop the intention to focus and be very strict with yourself.

Set time aside in your calendar and make sure you tell your colleagues that you will be ‘off the grid’ for a couple of hours. With practice and a little time, you will soon find yourself being able to resist temptations and focus better.
