Morning Empowerment. Mastery Newsletter November 19, 2019

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

What we do first thing in the morning makes a huge, humongous difference to the rest of the day…

 

What we do can set the tone for the day…and for our lives.

 

I got caught, as many have, in checking emails, Facebook, news sites on the web first thing after waking up.

 

Sometimes a “rabbit hole” sucked me in too…

 

Recently I was guided to consider making a change.

 

And wow…what a difference in my day every time…

 

If you were to choose to give up checking emails, texts, social media, web news, radio news, TV news and all the rest, what would you replace it with?

 

It can feel a little empty. A craving can arise. After all, social media sites are designed to give you a dopamine hit…

 

So we would have to create a stronger dopamine hit and perhaps the other “feel-good” hormones as well: serotonin, endorphins, oxytocin.

 

Here is what I did. Perhaps this will give you some ideas as well.

 

Thanks to Gene (GF) for this first idea.

 

Immediately upon waking, I say five times out loud: “I’m awake. I’m alive. I feel great!”

 

Then roll out of bed…right away. (True confession: still working on getting this one down.)

 

Then the bathroom. Run the bath for my morning ice bath.

 

A few minutes of yoga asanas.

 

Wim Hof iceman breathing.

 

Then, after the ice has done its work for 5 minutes or more, get in the bath.

 

Hot shower, then cold again.

 

Morning meditation for 20 minutes at least.

 

Now, I have to tell you it has become easier to stay away from social media having done all this…

 

So I replace it with some writing. I am writing this, for example, right after my meditation.

 

You can choose to spend half an hour reading. Brian Tracy, the motivational speaker, attributes his success to spending an hour reading first thing in the morning.

 

Now you can add dopamine to your morning by having a “to do” list ready to go from the previous night.

 

Get to the most challenging thing, the most difficult thing first.

 

Checking that off your list gives a huge dopamine hit.

 

Now, for me, I wait until I feel hunger before I put anything in my mouth. You may be a morning coffee person. This is all individual choice and depends on what kind of diet you are on.

 

Some will have porridge. Others fruit. Still others may be doing the celery juice.

 

Note that I am writing before any breakfast.

 

And choosing to wait until real hunger pangs hit. Often that is quite a bit later in the morning.

 

I am working toward staying away from emails, social media and web stuff and news until noon.

 

Since starting this a short time ago, I can tell you…what a difference in energy level and positive outlook on life it has made.

 

If any of this sounds good, you may choose to conduct an experiment.

 

Try one thing first. Maybe a short meditation or a few yoga asanas. Push the social media etc. off just a few minutes at first.

 

Eventually you may feel enough benefit to easily and effortlessly leave all that stuff until noon.

 

Such a sense of empowerment. When we choose to create a morning that we want. And not be sucked into the many rabbit holes first thing.

 

Just some thoughts for your consideration.

 

Thanks for reading.

 

Let me know how it goes.

We Are Mirrors to Each Other. Mastery Newsletter November 12, 2019

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Mastery Newsletter

What is it that most bothers you about other people?

 

Is there one person who does something that really bugs you?

 

Are there a number of people who do things that irritate you in some way?

 

Take a moment and think about it…

 

Pause a few moments while you reflect on this…

 

Now tell me…what was the most bothersome thing that anyone other than you did?

 

When I thought about it, here is what I found:

 

One person who I had dinner with didn’t stop talking about their most recent health discovery. The whole dinner it felt as if I couldn’t get a word in edgeways…

 

Another person spent half an hour explaining a system they had set up that I had zero interest in.

 

Two other friends disagree with me on a topic and I felt belittled for having an opposite view.

 

Yet another instance: someone is upset with me for something I didn’t do.

 

Ok, by now you will likely have at least one thing that someone has done or does that bothers you in some way.

 

GET READY!

 

Did it bother you that someone is a murderer?

 

Tamal Dodge asked this question from a room full of folks.

 

Then he asked why no one said it bothered them that someone is a murderer?

 

There were many complaints about what others did, but no one complained that murder took place.

 

Murder was not the number one thing that bothered anyone in that audience.

 

It wasn’t for me and I bet it likely was not for you either.

 

Tamal’s point is that what bothers us in others is what is in us.

 

What we see in others is a mirror of what is going on in us.

 

You and I are not murderers so we don’t see that in others.

 

We only see what they mirror back to us.

 

To go back to my examples.

 

I tend to go on and on about my most recent health discovery. So when others do it, I see me reflected in them.

 

I enjoy tinkering with organizational systems in my life. I love to organize my investment patterns for example. I can get excited and prattle on about it. When someone else does it, it bothers me.

 

I can be judgemental of others. So when someone is judgemental of me, it triggers me.

 

But I am not a murderer so it did not occur to me that murder is something to get more upset about than someone bending my ear for an extended period.

 

 

What this can do for me is just be aware of what bothers me in others…then look inside and see how I am doing that.

 

My job? To use the mirror others hold in front of me to fine tune my actions. Actions that may get under someone else’s skin.

 

 

To Your Joy, Energy and Health,

 

 

Matti Anttila

Life is Not Hard if You Love Yourself. Mastery Newsletter November 5, 2019

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

Patch Adams has been a “clown doctor” for half a century.

 

He found that less than 3% of people have self-esteem.

 

Less than 5% knew what living a life of vitality is all about.

 

He found the normal adult did not like themselves, their marriage or their job.

 

He himself attempted suicide three times before the age of 18. He did not want to live in a world of violence and injustice.

 

He then realized you don’t have to kill yourself, you can make a revolution. And that’s what he did.

 

He decided to be happy every second of his life. That expanded to be happy, funny, loving, cooperative, creative and thoughtful.

 

Being loving was the most challenging. That’s why he took to clowning. It was the trick to get close to loving.  

 

In 1971 he created a free hospital. Twenty adults, 3 of them doctors lived communally in a 6-bedroom house. 500 to a thousand people in their home a month. 5 to 50 overnight guests.

 

They accepted no health insurance. Just provided everything free.

 

No one would fund them because they refused to get malpractice insurance.

 

They paid their doctors the same as the cleaning staff: $300 a month. All live in the hospital.

 

For these $3600 a year paid positions they get thousands applying every year.

 

Loneliness: A Great Travesty of Our Time

 

Adams says the nuclear family is a failed experiment.

 

For 80 million years we lived communally.

 

The nuclear family experiment has created an epidemic of loneliness.

 

He claims depression is not an illness…it is a symptom of loneliness.

 

The solution? Live communally.

 

Life is not hard, says Adams.

 

“If you are you…If you as a designer make you, make your personhood and then use that personhood as you decide, it’s going to be hard? I’m sorry, if you have food and a friend, what are you bitching about?”

 

His theme? Once you love yourself, what others say doesn’t matter. You’re looking for ways to spend your love.

 

My take away from his talk:

 

Love yourself. Every time you pass a mirror, look at you and say you love your self.

 

Dive into the ocean of gratitude and don’t look for the shore.

 

Connect with friends. Stay connected.

 

Be a clown. It’s the trick to getting close to love.

 

Help others. It is a key to fulfillment.

 

Be happy, funny, loving, cooperative, creative and thoughtful.

Taking Responsibility Leads to Fulfillment. Mastery Newsletter August 26, 2019

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Mastery Newsletter

There are many areas of our lives where many of us have given up responsibility. Given the responsibility to someone else.

 

Examples include the most important area: health.

 

Health is the most important simply because without it, we don’t have energy to do anything else or to enjoy life.

 

What good is money with out energy to use it to have fun?

 

What good are houses, cars or other toys if we don’t have health and a positive attitude to enjoy them with?

 

What good are our relationships if we don’t have the motivation to enjoy exchanging energy with our loved ones?

 

Health includes fitness but is not defined by it. You can be perfectly fit and perfectly unhealthy.

 

Witness Jim Fixx who wrote the book on running called RUNNING. He ran 20 miles day 7 days a week. He died of a heart attack at age 52. Perfectly fit and dead.

 

Fitness answer? Super Slow. The most efficient and effective exercise. 20 minutes once a week. All you need. Takes away any and all guilt and anxiety about not getting enough exercise.

 

Health? More complex. Keto/Paleo diets on one side. Medical Medium (MM) on the other.

 

Keto/Paleo means lots of fat, medium protein, very little carbs…stay away from fruits generally.

 

MM means lots of fruit. Aaargh. What to do?

 

Experiment. Try both if you like. At different times.

 

As in scientific experiments, try something. Notice the result. Make changes.

 

Try something else. Repeat.

 

Money. If you are behind the 8 ball, get help from a credit counsellor. But don’t rely only on them. Take responsibility.

 

For example, I once owed over $70,000 to Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). 4 Pillars counsellors and I decided to offer them $10,800. $180 a month for 60 months. CRA refused the offer.

 

4 Pillars said we have to offer more. I said no, let me write them a letter. I used the techniques I learned from FBI negotiator Chris Voss and crafted a letter. CRA rep accepted the $10,800.

 

4 Pillars lady said you are so lucky. That is the toughest guy we deal with at CRA and he accepted.

 

It was because of Chris Voss’s principles…not mine!

 

The book is called NEVER SPLIT THE DIFFERENCE.

 

If you have money saved, go directly to William O’Neill’s book HOW TO MAKE MONEY IN STOCKS. The most effective investment system.

 

Best risk/reward ratio. Downside protection at 7-8%, upside potential double digits…at least.

 

Study. Then 20 minutes a day. Cut out 20 minutes of Netflix. You DO have the time.

 

Sales/negotiation skills. We use sales every day. We are ALL negotiators.

 

Most are not aware of this and stumble through life with a wrong idea about sales: the used car salesman. Ugh.

 

Chris Voss was the top FBI negotiator. Wherever there was an American taken hostage they flew him in. He and his team fine tuned the most elegant negotiation set of skills anywhere on the planet.

 

Yours for free: book is in the library. NEVER SPLIT THE DIFFERENCE.

 

Career and business success. Best way to develop skills: BOTH theory and practice.

 

To develop any skill, two things are needed. Most skip the first.

 

Let’s take public speaking as an example. Just get up and do it. Get over the fear by doing it over and over. That works, of course.

 

However, it also means we are learning by trial and error. And we don’t have enough time to make all the mistakes.

 

Instead, I suggest a better route is study theory AND practice.

 

My speaking “guru”’ is Andy Harrington. I saw him make over $750,000 income in one 90-minute talk. Do you suppose he has something to say about the structure of how to be a successful speaker? I’m in. How about you?

 

There are lots of good mentors for any skills you are looking to develop. You can find them.

 

Listen to your intuition. Choose one. Theory AND practice.

 

Relationships. Dan Buettner’s book THE BLUE ZONES talks about Okinawa where people live to past 90, past 100 in good health. How? One major ingredient is relationships.

 

The women get together for one hour every day. They talk, they kibitz, they laugh, they have fun.

 

Creating deep bonds with other humans is critical to supporting our life energy

 

5-6 friends is the ideal number, by the way…according to one researcher.

 

Clean Ups/Completions. You can’t feel good if you live in a mess. Clean things up.

 

David Allen has a system that works well. GETTING THINGS DONE. It’s in the library.

 

Essential, according to me. Because it is also a superb way to get organized. And we all need that to feel a sense of control in our lives.

 

Meditation/Reflection. Sharpening the Saw as Steven Covey said. (7 HABIT OF HIGHLY EFFECTIVE PEOPLE)

 

Have one day a week devoted to nothing. Have fun. Reflect on life. Recharge the batteries.

 

Daily meditation is ideal. It is actually really easy to get started. JOY ON DEMAND by Chade Meng Tan is a great primer.

 

Happiness? You still want that? OK then.

 

THE ZEN OF JOY, by me. Subtitle: HOW TO REWIRE YOUR BRAIN FOR HAPPINESS AND SUCCESS. MINUTES A DAY TO BOOST YOUR PERFORMANCE, PRODUCTIVITY AND PROFITS.

 

To summarize.

 

Health: experiment.  

 

Money: get control.

 

Career skills: Theory AND practice.

 

Relationships: deepen them with 5 or 6 folks.

 

Sales/negotiation skills: Chris Voss.

 

Organize/clean ups: David Allen.

 

Meditation: JOY ON DEMAND.

 

Happiness: THE ZEN OF JOY.

 

Tag you’re it. Over to you. Get going. One step at a time.

The Money Mafia. We Are at a Tipping Point.   Mastery Newsletter August 13, 2019

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

“The World in Crisis” is the subtitle of this book written by Paul Hellyer*.

 

Ideas from the book:

 

A small group of greedy men took away your power and mine.

 

Their goal total control of the world and rapid depopulation of the world.

 

The method is control of the money supply.

 

Part of his action plan to right things is to take back the creation of money from the Cabal, his term for “The Money Mafia.

 

Hellyer maintains that cheap and efficient energy is available to us and kept secret to line the pockets of the greedy.

 

Also kept secret is that governments, especially the U.S. government, have had contact with aliens for decades.

 

* Paul Hellyer is one of Canada’s best known and most controversial politicians.

 

First elected in 1949, he was the youngest cabinet minister appointed to Louis S. St. Laurent’s government eight years later.

 

He subsequently held senior posts in the governments of Lester B. Pearson and Pierre E. Trudeau, who defeated him for the Liberal Party leadership in 1968.

 

The following year, after achieving the rank of senior minister, which was later designated Deputy Prime Minister, Hellyer resigned from the Trudeau cabinet on a question of principle related to housing.

 

Although Hellyer is best known for the unification of the Canadian Armed Forces and for his 1968 chairmanship of the Task Force on Housing and Urban Development, he has maintained a life-long interest in macroeconomics.

 

Through the years, as a journalist and political commentator, he has continued to fight for economic reforms and has written several books on the subject.

 

A man of many interests, Hellyer’s ideas are not classroom abstractions.

 

He was born and raised on a farm and his business experience includes manufacturing, retailing, construction, land development, tourism and publishing.

 

He has also been active in community affairs including the arts and studied voice at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto.

 

His multi-faceted career, in addition to a near-lifetime in politics, gives Hellyer a rare perspective on what has gone wrong with world economies.

Laughter Yoga Principles to Live By Part 2. Mastery Newsletter August 6, 2019

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

Another Principle of Laughter Yoga:

 

Motion Creates Emotion.

 

Last time we look at the principle of “fake it till you make it.”

 

In Laughter Yoga sessions, another principles is “Motion Creates Emotion.”

 

We are encouraged to move around while doing the Laughter exercises.

 

We find is that when we move, we shake things up a bit.

 

This movement stirs up energy in our bodies and our minds.

 

We become somewhat looser and energetic at the same time.

 

Our minds make more neuronal connections. This can and often does lead to coming up with ideas. Ideas, ah-ha moments that can help us solved sticky problems and issues in our lives.

 

Doctors, fitness instructors and health coaches all encourage us to move our bodies.

 

By doing so energetically, whether laughing, dancing, playing sports and/or walking, we can help improve our fitness levels.

 

A better fitness level can mean better mental function.

 

“Motion Creates Emotion” principle also means we can also find better emotional balance in our lives.

 

 

To Your Joy, Energy and Health,

Laughter Yoga Principles to Live By Part 1. Mastery Newsletter July 30, 2019

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

Laughter Yoga is a worldwide movement based on the concept that we can laugh for no reason.

 

Laughter yogis and yoginis get together regularly to laugh in a group setting.

 

Much fun, good feeling and endorphin production ensues.

 

But can the principles of Laughter Yoga guide us in every day life?

 

Let’s have a look-see.

 

A Principle of Laughter Yoga: “Fake it till you make it.”

 

We move the diaphragm dramatically up an down as if we were laughing.

 

Some say this is not “real” laughter and is therefore fake.

 

  1. So if it is, that’s fine. Eventually as we move around and make eye contact, the laughter can and does break out into “real” laughter.

 

Fake it till you make it in practice.

 

In real life, say giving a public speech, we can use the same principle.

 

Pretend you are confident. Take the stance of a confident person. Breathe like one. Stand tall like one. Make eye contact as a confident person would.

Practice your talk as if you were confident.

 

You are teaching your subconscious mind that you ARE confident.

 

When it learns the lesson, you become one…a confident speaker.

Embracing Disappointment. Mastery Newsletter July 16, 2019

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

A rainy summer Sunday afternoon.

 

Great moment to head over to the rec centre and sit in a sauna.

 

Only to be met by a sign:

Sauna closed.

We are waiting for parts.

Sorry for any inconvenience.

 

How would you respond?

 

In the past, I would have been quite upset. Cue the internal rant and rave…Kicking myself for not phoning to check first.

 

So, it was with a pleasant surprise that I noted my response these days.

 

Well, well. Ok, so what is Plan B?

 

Drive for ten more minutes to another rec centre?

 

Go back home and have a bath instead?

 

I noted my internal calm.

 

Something has happened. I think it is mostly from my Laughter Yoga experience.

 

You know the saying: “Someday we’ll look back on this and laugh?”

 

If so, why not laugh now?

 

Because of a decade plus of laughing daily for 10-15 minutes, I don’t seem to need to laugh to let go of this kind of disappointment.

 

Somehow, I no longer even view it as a disappointment.

 

Most interestingly, it is just an inner smile that responds to the event.

 

Byron Katie says it is “loving what is.”

 

I am so grateful to Dr. Madan Kataria for creating Laughter Yoga in 1995.

 

Laughter Yoga is what has enabled this sense of calm. The calm that remains when “life throws a dare” as Dr. K. would say.

 

I ended up at home soaking in a bath.

 

It wasn’t my first preference. But it was still lovely.

 

Do you have a similar tool in your tool box for embracing disappointment?

 

If not, consider taking up Laughter Yoga for a great personal development path.

 

 

 

 

 

To Your Joy, Energy and Health,

Medical Medium: Cure for Everything? Mastery Newsletter July 9, 2019

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

“Let food be thy medicine.” Who said that?

 

Does is make common sense?

 

Food is what fuels us, after all.

 

Why do we need anything else to be healthy?

 

Yet, we have epidemics of cancer, heart disease, diabetes and many more conditions. Why?

 

Do you think we have veered off the path somehow? Have we, over time, moved away from what is really healthy food?

Could that be a reason or even THE reason we are so ill as a society?

 

Anthony William thinks so.

 

He is the author of the Medical Medium series of books.

 

He thinks we can get back to vibrant health by getting back to eating well or eating better than we may be right now.

 

His protocol?

 

Lots of fruit.

 

Lots of vegetables.

 

Specific herbs and spices, and

Wild foods.

 

Also he says to cut out specific foods that cause inflammation and illness.

 

More on that in a moment…

 

He also is huge on celery juice.

 

16 ounces of celery juice on an empty stomach first thing in the morning.

 

Followed by nothing but fruit until lunch.

 

This, he says, allows the body to begin cleansing some of the toxins we may have built up over decades.

 

Speaking of which…

 

One of the main culprits is…Epstein-Barr virus.

 

William claims there are 60 strains of this virus, not the 2 or 3 that the medical system has identified.

 

He says this is a major culprit in all of our dis-eases.

 

Ridding ourselves of this virus is one of his keys to regaining our health.

 

Foods That Make Life Challenging.

 

William does not say never to eat these foods. Just that until we cleanse out the toxins, these specific foods can prevent us getting well.

 

Once cleansed, we may be able to re-introduce them in the diet.

 

Dairy, eggs, corn, wheat, canola oil, and…

 

“Natural flavours.” What a tricky one that is.

 

He says that phrase is a way to hide the fact that the food contains MSG!

 

Summing up:

Celery juice on an empty stomach in the morning.

 

Fruit, lots of it, and nothing else until lunch.

 

Vegetables galore at lunch and evening.

 

Plus, there are other aspects to know.

 

More here: https://www.medicalmedium.com/

 

And his books are in the library. So you can check him out with no cost.

You and I Make Terrible Decisions Part Two. Mastery Newsletter June 26, 2019

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

From the book “Factfulness.”

 

“Step-by-step, year-by-year, the world is improving. Not on every single measure every single year, but as a rule. Though the world faces huge challenges, we have made tremendous progress…

 

…we need to control our drama intake. Uncontrolled, our appetite for the dramatic goes too far, prevents us from seeing the world as it is, and leads us terribly astray…

 

Yet here’s the paradox: the image of a dangerous world has never been broadcast more effectively than it is now, while the world has never been less violent and more safe…

 

Fear can be useful, but only if it directed at the right things. The fear instinct is a terrible guide for understanding the world. It makes us give our attention to the unlikely dangers that we are most afraid of, and neglect what is actually most risky.”

 

Let me repeat that:

 

“It makes us give our attention to the unlikely dangers that we are most afraid of, and neglect what is actually most risky.”

 

Conclusion?

 

It is of upmost importance to view the world as it is, not as our distorted fears would have us believe.

 

Because! With distorted fear, we neglect to pay attention to what are actually and really the most risky things…

 

If you choose to dip into the book FACTFULNESS, you will find the tools to release the 10 most dangerous instincts. And how to release them.

Factfulness. Mastery Newsletter June 19, 2019

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

You and I make TERRIBLE DECISIONS AND

 

HAVE UNNECESSARY STRESS.

 

What? Why?

 

Because we suffer from:

 

AN OVERDRAMATIC WORLDVIEW.

 

This is according to the author of

 

Factfulness: 10 Reasons Why We’re Wrong About the World – and Why Things Are Better Than You Think

 

Hans Rosling was a Swedish medical doctor and international health researcher.

 

He would ask audiences simple questions about global trends.

 

Almost everyone got almost every question wrong.

 

It did not matter if the audiences were made up of teachers, journalists, Nobel laureates, and investment bankers.

 

No matter how intelligent, they still got the answers so wrong that chimpanzees did better on his quizzes.

 

He actually did that. Asked chimps.

 

The chimps, picking coded bananas, got more answers right than some of the most intelligent (and influential) policy makers in the world.

 

What that told Rosling is that policy makers were and are creating policies based on absolutely wrong information!!!

 

The solution?

 

Get a realistic, undramatic view of the world.

 

Thus reducing stress and enjoying life more in a world that is quite wonderful.

 

Hard to believe that the world is “quite wonderful?” and not “going to h*ll in a handbasket?”

 

Rosling’s son and daughter in law are co-authors of the book.

 

They define “Factfulness” as The stress-reducing habit of only carrying opinions for which you have strong supporting facts.

 

From the website:

 

“When asked simple questions about global trends―

 

what percentage of the world’s population live in poverty;

 

why the world’s population is increasing;

 

how many girls finish school―

 

we systematically get the answers wrong.

 

So wrong that a chimpanzee choosing answers at random will consistently outguess teachers, journalists, Nobel laureates, and investment bankers.

 

Factfulness offers a radical new explanation of why this happens.

 

It reveals the ten instincts that distort our perspective―from our tendency to divide the world into two camps (usually some version of us and them) to the way we consume media (where fear rules) to how we perceive progress (believing that most things are getting worse).

 

Our problem is that we don’t know what we don’t know, and even our guesses are informed by unconscious and predictable biases.(my bolding)

 

It turns out that the world, for all its imperfections, is in a much better state than we might think.

 

That doesn’t mean there aren’t real concerns.

 

But when we worry about everything all the time instead of embracing a worldview based on facts, we can lose our ability to focus on the things that threaten us most.

 

Inspiring and revelatory, filled with lively anecdotes and moving stories, Factfulness is a new thinking habit that will change the way you see the world and empower you to respond to challenges and opportunities of the future.

 

‘This book is my last battle in my life-long mission to fight devastating ignorance…Previously I armed myself with huge data sets, eye-opening software, an energetic learning style and a Swedish bayonet for sword-swallowing. It wasn’t enough. But I hope this book will be.’ – Hans Rosling, February 2017.”

 

–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

Said about the book:

 

“One of the most important books I’ve ever read―an indispensable guide to thinking clearly about the world.”

                     – Bill Gates

 

“A genuine antidote to negativity and hopelessness…”       – Nature

 

“[A] hopeful book about the potential for human progress when we work off facts rather than our inherent biases.” – Barack Obama, Summer Reading List

 

“Hans Rosling tells the story of ‘the secret silent miracle of human progress’ as only he can. But Factfulness does much more than that. It also explains why progress is so often secret and silent and teaches readers how to see it clearly.”              ―Melinda Gates

 

“Authors who describe the remarkable decline of poverty, hunger and disease in the developing world anticipate such incredulity that they often flaunt the word “great” in their titles, such as Nobel laureate Angus Deaton’s The Great Escape and Steven Radelet’s The Great Surge. More modestly, Charles Kenny tells us how the world is Getting Better. As does Factfulness by the late TED star Hans Rosling, who liked to quiz his audiences on trends in wellbeing and show that they did worse than chimpanzees.”

    – Steven Pinker in The Guardian

 

“This is honestly one of the most eye-opening, opinion changing books I have ever read. Especially in today’s political climate, everything feels like the worst case scenario and it can be hard to know what to do without losing hope. Factfulness gives real, data-based information about how we use information and how to do that better. It is frank and it is real and I have never felt so empowered in my life. The tips and explanations in here are so useable and so relatable and so simple, I can start using them right now and I feel like I’ll have need to use them forever. Seriously, this feels right now like a must read book. ”

“Decluttering Creates Abundance”   Mastery Newsletter July 2, 2019

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Mastery Newsletter

Not because you sell your stuff for money (though you can do that as well)…

 

But because getting rid of “stuff” can shift us to a new mindset… A new way of thinking where happiness, joy and delighting in life is not dependent on “retail therapy.”

 

We live in a consumer society. There was a time when most folks would buy a new pair of pants when, and only when the old pair wore out.

 

Now, everyone must have the latest fashion.

 

Have you heard the definition of “fashion?” Something so awful you have to change it four times a year. Ha ha.)

 

The whole fashion industry feeds the consumers’ tastes so she or he must have the latest fad.

 

How does this relate to decluttering?

 

Here is how…

 

Who of us does not have some items that were not “high fashion” at some point and now makes the stomach turn?

 

The question is why have we not sold it, given it away or trashed it?

 

Could it be we are addicted to keeping stuff around because: “I might need it one day?”

 

Wiser heads than ours have commented that there is a sense of joy, a feeling of lightness without clutter.

 

Without closets jammed to the gills…without cupboard full of unused knick-knacks?

 

That sense or feeling can be thought of as a feeling of abundance. I suspect it is kind of a “Zen” thing.

 

Here are some tips and ideas from those who have gone before us in this decluttering process.

 

Operating Principle: If it is not useful or beautiful, what is it doing in your life?

 

Easy enough to say, the devil is in the details.

 

Especially if you have a spouse or Significant Other. They may see something as gorgeous that you think is hideous.

 

So…start with your own stuff.

 

Five Minutes a Day to Declutter

 

Most of these can be done in 5 minutes or so. If it is important to us, we can find five minutes almost any day.

 

1.Clothing Decluttering Experiment is a good place to start.

 

Oprah Winfrey made this one popular.

 

To identify wardrobe pieces to clear out, hang all your clothes with the hangers in the reverse direction.

 

After you wear an item, return it to the closet with the hanger facing the correct direction.

 

After six months, you’ll have a clear picture of which clothes you can easily discard.

 

This experiment could also be applied to a number of clutter areas in your home (cleaners, toys, linens, tools, hobbies and craft items). 5 minutes to set this up.

 

  1. Give away one thing a day.

 

Colleen Madsen at “365 Less Things” said this transformed her life: http://www.365lessthings.com  Less than 5 minutes for this one.

 

  1. Fill One Trash Bag.

 

Grab the bag. Race through the house and fill it up. Dump it. 5 to 10 minutes.

 

  1. Make list of places to declutter.

 

Dana Byers (http://www.danabyers.com ) says start with the easiest spot in the home first.

 

Sound hard? She adds this note, “When you’re done with one area, STOP.”

 

Pat yourself on the back. Take note of your progress.

 

Even a little dent in the clutter can motivate us to keep going.

 

The first spot may only take 5-10 minutes. The momentum can carry us to the next area.

 

  1. Change your perspective.

 

Here’s how: take photos of your house, invite over a toddler, or ask the boss to meet in your office.

 

These might cause you to see your home in a new light.

 

  1. Use your imagination.

 

Try asking yourself unique questions like, “If I was just buying this now, how much would I pay?”

 

These creative techniques may prove to be very helpful for some with difficulties removing unneeded clutter.

“Three Rules of Work: Out of clutter find simplicity; From discord find harmony; In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.” – Albert Einstein

 

These ideas may help us to have more space in our lives.

 

In our homes and if the “Zen People” are right, provide a greater sense of calm and feeling of control in our lives.

 

To Your Joy, Energy and Health,

Get Plastics Out of Your Body. Mastery Newsletter June 6, 2019

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

You and I eat an average of 50,000 pieces of plastic a year.

 

This is from new research, published in the journal “Environmental Science and Technology.”

 

Lead researcher Keiran Cox from the University of Victoria in Canada says they only analyzed 15% of calorie intake.

 

That means the real figure is likely much higher.

 

 

We’re Not Designed For This

 

You and I know our bodies are not designed to deal with this mad made substance.

 

We are told the health impacts are unknown.

 

We don’t need rocket science to tell us this is not a good thing.

 

 

Bottle Water a Big Factor

 

One aspect of the research showed that those who get their water consumption from bottled water are far worse off.

 

From the Guardian article:

 

“A person who only drank bottled water would consume 130,000 particles per year from that source alone, the researchers said, compared with 4,000 from tap water.” (my italics and bolding)

 

 

Can We Do Something?

 

Other than staying away from bottled water and using less plastic containers, what else can we do?

 

Moving does not seem to be an option. A recent report on atmospheric plastic pollution showed high amounts in the air in the Pyrenees mountains straddling France and Spain.

 

We can’t escape ingesting plastic. It is in the air, the water and food sources as well.

 

Can we do something about eliminating it from our bodies.

 

 

The answer appears to be: Yes.

 

From the book MEDICAL MEDIUM by Anthony William comes this formula:

 

Anti-Plastics Tea

 

“To rid your body of plastic and plastic by-products, blend equal parts fenugreek, mullein leaf, olive leaf, and lemon balm. Steep one tablespoon of the herb mixture per cup of hot water for tea.”

Laughter is a “Gateway Drug” Mastery Newsletter May 27, 2019

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Mastery Newsletter

Caution: Extended periods of laughter can lead to other behaviour changes.

 

Full disclosure: I am a “Laughter Addict.”

 

I am writing this warn you about the dangers of getting hooked on laughter.

 

Oh, it seems safe enough to begin with.

 

Like other substances, it makes you feel good at first.

 

You have seen it yourself if ever you watched a really funny movie and laughed until tears streamed down your face…and your belly ached from so much laughter.

 

If felt good, didn’t it?

 

But be careful: too much exposure to laughter can lead you on to other activities. Activities you never expected.

 

Here is my cautionary tale.

 

Laughter, and here I mean extended periods of ten to fifteen minutes or more, can lead to more smiles on the face.

 

Those smiles can spread in the body and you may find a smile in the belly. Again this is disguised as a warm and fuzzy feel-good kind of thing.

 

Don’t be deceived, there is more to come, much more.

 

You can find yourself talking to strangers more and having fun doing it.

 

You can find that your breathing takes on a different tone entirely. That is, you may breathe deeper and more slowly.

 

This is so sneaky. Again, at first that may not seem too much to deal with.

 

But then, along with the smiling, the slower breathing, extended laughter can also cause you to feel heightened self esteem.

 

Now here is where it gets a little dangerous.

 

This new self esteem can cause you to take action that you would not have considered otherwise.

 

Actions that be dangerous to your view of the world.

 

As we know, the world is a dangerous place. What with war, famine, divisive politics, the environment going to heck in a handbasket…

 

This new self esteem can lead you to be more generous. Your generosity can cause you to feel that all is right with the world.

 

Can you see the pitfalls here?

 

Further, you may find yourself singing along to songs on the radio more.

 

Talk about distracted driving. We can’t have that kind of thing spreading.

 

You may be preparing breakfast and find yourself dancing to music. Oh my goodness, knives and dancing. What a recipe for disaster.

 

If you continue down this road, you may find that you no longer feel like there isn’t enough time for everything that needs doing.

 

Have to nip that in the bud! We know for sure that we have to keep moving faster and faster or else we will fall behind.

 

Now, I admit, there are some who can come to our Laughter Yoga sessions and not get addicted.

 

They just laugh for an hour for no reason and they are able to walk away from it before it catches fire in their souls.

 

But can you take the chance?

 

You may have an addictive personality and then where are you?

 

On the slippery slope to all those “side effects” of an extended laughter session.

 

So I urge you to reconsider if a so-called friend invites you to come with them to a Laughter Yoga class.

 

Just for your information, so you know exactly what times and places to avoid:

 

Laughter Yoga in Victoria, BC, Canada are held at Beacon Hill Park at 10.30 AM on Sundays during spring and summer.

 

If you must go to Beacon Hill Park, steer well clear of the sundial in the middle of the park.

 

Better yet, sleep in on Sundays to avoid any temptation.

 

Mondays at 4.30pm at the VIHA building across from Esquimalt Rec Centre. Take an alternate route home if you have to.

 

And for sure, stay well away from Willows Beach area on Wednesday nights at 7pm. Especially near the Tea Room.

 

Those are the places and times to avoid if you don’t want to get addicted to laughter.

 

Remember: laughter is addictive. And it is a gateway to numerous other activities that can change your view of life forever. It can alter your habits. It can make life seem to be better in many ways.

 

But we know that is not real. Life is dangerous and we have to be on guard at all times.

 

We have to be ready for fight or flight at all moments of the day.

 

On more thing. Extended laughter periods can also cause you to sleep more soundly.

 

And we know how dangerous that can be in this world. We can’t have that.

 

So take note from one who is fully addicted to laughter and has many of the side effects as well.

 

Stay well away. Unless you really are ready to have your world changed in a fundamental way.

 

 

 

To Your Joy, Energy and Health,

Happiness Formula. Mastery Newsletter April 24, 2019

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

Is there a simple formula/strategy to be happy?

What are the conditions that produce the hormones that are in play when we are happy?

This is one of the best explanations I have seen. Thanks to Durga Dass.

Durga is one of my Facebook Laughter Yoga friends..

“There are 4 Hormones which determine a human’s happiness.

Dear friends …

As I sat in the park after my morning walk, My wife came and slumped next to me.

  She had completed   her 30-minute jog.   We chatted   for a while. She said   she is not happy in life. I looked up at her sheer disbelief since she seemed to have the best of everything in life.

  “Why do you think so?” 

“I don’t know. Everyone tells I have everything needed, but I am not happy.

“Then I questioned myself, am I happy? “No,”   was my inner voice reply.

Now, that was an eye-opener for me.

I began my quest to understand the real cause of my unhappiness, I couldn’t find one.

I dug deeper, read articles, spoke to life coaches but nothing made sense.

  At last my doctor friend gave me the answer which put all my questions and doubts to rest.

  I implemented those and will say I am   a lot happier person.

She said, there are four hormones   which determine a   human’s happiness –

1.   Endorphins, 

2.   Dopamine, 

3.   Serotonin, 

and

4.   Oxytocin.

It is important we understand these hormones, as we need all four of them   to stay happy.

Let’s look at the first hormone the   Endorphins.

  When we exercise, the body releases Endorphins. 

This hormone helps the body cope with the pain of exercising. We then enjoy exercising because these Endorphins will make us happy.

  Laughter is another good way of   generating Endorphins. 

We need to spend 30 minutes exercising   every day, read or watch funny stuff   to get our day’s dose of Endorphins.

  The second hormone is Dopamine. 

In our journey of life, we accomplish many little and big tasks, it releases   various levels of Dopamine. 

  When we get appreciated for our work at the office or at home, we feel accomplished and good, that is because it releases Dopamine. 

This also explains why most housewives   are unhappy since they rarely get   acknowledged or appreciated for their work.   

Once, we join work, we buy a car, a house, the latest gadgets, a new house  and so forth. In each instance, it releases Dopamine and we become happy.

Now, do we realize why we become happy when we shop?

  The third hormone Serotonin is released when we act in a way that benefits others. 

When we transcend ourselves and give back to others or to nature or to the society, it releases Serotonin. Even, providing useful information on the internet like writing information   blogs, answering people’s questions on Quora or Facebook groups will generate Serotonin. 

That is because we will use our   precious time to help other people via our answers or articles.

  The final hormone is Oxytocin, 

is released when we become close to other human beings.

When we hug our friends or family   Oxytocin is released. 

The “Jadoo Ki Jhappi” from Munnabhai   does really work. 

Similarly, when we shake hands or put our arms around someone’s shoulders, various amounts of Oxytocin is released.

So, it is simple, we have to exercise every day to get Endorphins, we have to   accomplish little goals and get Dopamine, we need to be nice to others to get Serotonin and finally hug our kids, friends, and families to get Oxytocin and we will be happy.

  When we are happy, we can deal with our challenges and problems better.

Now, we can understand why we need to hug a child who has a bad mood. 

So to make your child more and more   happy day by day …

 1.  Motivate him to play   on the ground

  -Endorphins 

2.   Appreciate your child   for his small big achievements

  -Dopamine 

3.   inculcate sharing habit through you to your child

  -Serotonin 

4.   Hug your child

  -Oxytocin 

  Have a Happy Life.”

Getting Lost Hunting for Chocolate. Mastery Newsletter March 28, 2019

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

Matti on Assignment in the Kona Highlands.

Should have gone straight instead of turning right…

A long winding road high above the Kona Coast on the Big Island of Hawaii.

Our rental car is being put through its paces.

We have to double back a couple of times. Ask directions and finally phone the chocolate farm.

Eventually, we find it.

Worth the effort.

Pamela and Bob Cooper are doing great work at Original Hawaiian Chocolate.

We were not disappointed as this is the smoothest 70% dark chocolate in living memory.

As with coffee we stocked up for the journey home. Especially with the criollo.

That is made from the rarest cacao bean on the planet.

The west coast of the Big Island continues to amaze.

See pics on FB.

The Macadamia Nut Hunt. Mastery Newsletter March 25, 2019

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Mastery Newsletter

Matti on Assignment in the norther reaches of the Big Island of Hawai’i.

Everybody gets Mauna Loa macadamia nuts.

We wanted to search further afield.

North from Kailua-Kona we travel up to 2500 feet from sea level…

Past solidified lava fields up to cowboy country.

Paniolos as they are called here have been rustling cows longer than the the cowboy of the American west.

Further north, we find it…the Hamakua Nut Factory.

No claim to any better a nut, but it was a great ride to get here…

See pics on FB…

Is Anger Ever Justified? Mastery Newsletter March 18, 2019

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

We flew to Hawai’i on a Boeing 737 Max8.

Now the plane has been grounded because of two crashes.

We had to scramble a little to get redirected back home flying on a different plane.

From the media reports it appears there is a design flaw in the Max8.

CBS and CBC reports indicate the plane was rushed into production with a new computer system. The pilots were not advised of the major change.

Because of the change, the computer software was go stop the plane from taking off at too steep and angle at take-off. If it did so, it could stall and crash.

A lot of money was saved by not requiring pilots to be retrained.

The reports indicate this is what caused the two crashes that took so many lives.

I woke up at 2 in the morning angry that no one in Boeing or the FAA caught this potential problem. This put the lives of my wife and I in danger.

Was this anger justified?

There is an easy argument to say yes it was.

But at 2 in the morning what good was it doing me?

While I logically saw I would be better to let it go, my emotions ran rampant.

It took some doing to release it.

I am reminded of the American prophet Edgar Cayce. He forecast earthquakes, volcanos for much of the USA. When asked where should one live to avoid the coming destruction, his answer was profound.

In effect, don’t worry about it. If you are doing the right thing, you will be in the right place at the right time.

Divine guidance is available to us.

Using meditation techniques, we can get into a loving and blissful state. In that state, we are open to divine guidance to steer us in the right direction at all times.

Only when we slip from that state, do we not have divine guidance.

The work of staying in that blissful state is not necessarily easy.

But it is blissfully rewarding.

Your thoughts?

In Search of the Optimum Cuppa Joe. Mastery Newsletter March 12, 2019

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Mastery Newsletter

Matti on assignment in deepest, darkest Kona.

The Kona Coast of the Big Island of Hawai’i, that is.

My wife and I came here because we had been exposed to the delights of Kona coffee before.

Many consider coffee grown here on slopes of Hualalei and Mauna Loa Volcano to be the finest in the world.

Taste is of course personal and even coffee “experts” disagree. Some say the Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee ranks as #1.

Not to be deterred by such quibbling, we ventured forth…

But which of the 600 plus coffee plantations to visit?

We decided on the one many call the granddaddy of them all…Greenwell Farms.

So named because a Brit by the name of Henry Nicholas Greenwell created a world wide sensation with his plantation here in 1850.

To be called Kona, the coffee has to be in a narrowly defined strip of land between 500 and 1500 feet above level.

Our plantation guide explained many of the factors that give Kona coffee its unique taste. A taste devoid of the bitterness in the throat.

Among these factors, volcanic ash, the range of temperature, the soil and so on.

I, as a long time non coffee drinker, was first seduced by its allure when I drove the coast with my parents back in the 90s.

This pilgrimage was to discover if it still held its appeal at the source.

For me, the verdict is in.

Going forward, Greenwell Kona will be my main coffee. Sadly, I receive no compensation for saying so.

One exception is an instant coffee (horror of horrors) with coconut and medicinal mushroom. (Another story for another time.)

We bought a decent supply to bring back in our suitcases. We also expect to order more when we run out.

This was our first research project on our safari to the Big Island.

Two other equally interesting projects remain. Stay tuned.

P.S. If you go looking for it, you may suffer “sticker shock.” It is one of the most expensive coffees in the world.

WORTH IT!

To Your Joy, Energy and Health,

Matti Anttila
