Despite claims by some therapeutic disciplines such as hypnosis and NLP, mind-personality cannot reprogam itself. Mind cannot reprogram mind. All such efforts produce at best a surface effect that is eventually undone and overwritten by the re-emergence of remaining deep programming that mind therapies cannot reach. Only Divine Consciousness can permanently reprogam mind ...
Your dark, subconscious personality lives outside of everyday awareness and is often called "The Shadow" – a name coined by the psychologist Carl Jung. To be completely free from the emotions of apathy, grief, fear, lust, anger and pride that compose your dark personality, it is essential to first discover that you are not your … Continue reading Dark Personality
Until we awaken from our sleepwalking slumber party – the experience of life for many – we usually either indulge our judgements of other people as being right or wrong, good or bad (for example, acting them out through road rage and domestic violence), suppress them, or attempt to change and get rid of them.
When this body had travelled around the Sun 17 times, I pondered the fact that it is impossible to imagine nothing. Now, a few more trips around that shining orb later, I marvel and stand in awe of the fact that it is impossible to imagine who and what I am ...

At first, for many people the witness takes the form of a mental concept, which, although not the whole truth, is a step up in consciousness.
Self-inquiry differs from all other meditations that I'm aware of because all the others require us to dedicate a period of time to their practice, need a quiet place, entail closing our eyes, and demand the removal of external distractions to be fully effective – or even able to be performed at all.

The seed idea for this article came a few days ago when I was driving to Dartmoor, a place where I would very much love to live. So love and the power of manifestation was very much present when this insight arrived.
