Here is another GREAT YouTube video to give BIG inspiration to start your day or when you are not feeling motivated.
Keeping yourself in the right perspective...focused...grateful...knowing that you have the potential to climb mountains...face adversity despite what life throws at you....it is all in your perspective and how you meet the challenge...NOT allowing defeat or failure...Feel strong...Feel success...Know that YOU can do what ever you set your mind to do. Affirm that YOU are still here and have a PURPOSE by meeting the challenge.

Take the time to watch this YouTube video.
Forgiveness is the ability to Let Go...it IS a mindset...a an act of freeing oneself from the burden of subconscious thoughts and involuntary reactions towards others or even towards oneself.
Forgiveness of oneself can be the hardest thing to do...but it is a gift that causes a ripple effect outward from your inner spirit.

Les Brown's Newest MidLIfe Mastery Article - A must read!!!
Have you ever noticed how certain patterns in your life keep re-emerging. Doesn't it sometimes feel as though you've gotten yourself locked into some kind of bizarre dance that sends you round and round the same issues and behaviors time after time? Only part of our actions are really deliberate; the rest are all learned behaviors. We learned them because we had to. At one time, they served us well. Although we can no longer even remember when we climbed on board these thought patterns, our behavior very often gives stark testimony to our rigid, one-track mind.

This has got to be the coolest video I have ever watched in relation to Brain Sync. The audio track that is used in this video is Kelly Howard's "High Focus", which stimulates the brain into the Theta Frequency Stage used for deep concentration, focus and learning. I have used this CD on many occasions when I have had deadlines, needed to write articles, papers or have fallen behind in my blogging. I have recommended it to my children who are in High School and college when they become stressed to the point that they can't get anything done. Within five minutes they are concentrating again and some of the papers and creativity that come out of their time with Brain Sync has amazed me.
This YouTube Video in particular gives an excellent explanation of Theta Brain Waves and how they are important in our overall brain health. I have not heard of listening and viewing the factals before...but indeed, I found that I fell in to a Theta state much quicker then with just the CD and Headphones.

Here is a suggestion for the days that you are stuck at your computer and need to relax or you just need a break...check out one of the many YouTube videos that are being created for relaxation. This is one of my favorites...
I have always found Japanese Flute music to be so relaxing...along with any ambient Nature sounds set to soft music. Please stay tuned as I will have been doing research on The Mozart Effect, music, creativity and over all wellbeing.

The number one topic that we discuss here is change and when it comes down to brass tacks...the one change that is predominant throughout discussions among men and women at Mid-life are: Purpose in Life…this can be the problem or it is the answer!
Men and women at mid-life go through the same transitions in varying degrees...feeling unsettled, dissatisfied, bored and unhappy with their life. Many seem to focus in on the one relationship that is dominant in their lives…their marriage. Being a wife and mother/husband and father has defined them for several years. These roles have also defined the reason why they have stayed within a career or a marriage that may have not really suited them…they remained working at their job because it puts food on the table, clothes on everyone’s back and a roof over their head. They’ve stayed within a marriage for the sake of the children; it’s safe or the marriage has served them in one way or another.
Some how when roles change and the need is no longer there or is lessening, we tend to revisit why we are there or why we’ve been even doing it at all. We start searching for something…for the new need …a need for excitement, passion, significance, excellence, love, success and abundance. Anything is better than the same old, same old. People work for what they want within the circumstances that they are in and that work becomes their burden. But soon…the dissatisfaction quietly starts …a slight rumbling within the spirit…with each experience or event, along with the physical changes that are occurring within our bodies…the small rumble turns in to an explosion of discontent, dissatisfaction and uneasiness and a multitude of questioning. The want turns in to a need for change.
Most Mid-life Crisis triggers tend to change your purpose in life, whether you’ve chosen it or not. Children grow up and move away, parents need care or pass away, illness/disease happen, jobs are lost or change, moves occur, finances increase or decrease, friends and family come and go….both men and women go through physical changes at this age (menopause or andropause)…ALL cause change. The brain doesn’t like change…this is why change hurts and we struggle with it. Change goes against everything the brain is trying to do…which is keeping a person in their comfort zone…even if the zone is not that comfortable.
As much as we want change at this point in our lives, we are not ready for change. As human beings, we don’t seem to understand the mechanics of change. Most people are not prepared and this is why it knocks us right off our feet when change occurs suddenly or even when we think we have prepared for it. People have a tendency to barrel ahead in to changing things without thinking about the consequences of what the changes will do in their lives and to those that they live and love. So, knowing and understanding the mechanics of change is important, along with a sound mental and physical state; strategy or plan and knowing the goal and purpose of the change.
The kicker to all of what we are feeling is: as much as we think we want change the more we resist it. Resistance comes at a subconscious level in our brains. It is the primary cause for all the confusion, frustration and inability to make clear or sound decisions. Plus, we resist the change because we are not clear on the ultimate goal and we don’t have a sound strategy or plan., so our resistance to the change increases.
Next time, we will be looking at Mid-life Mindset: Resistance and what we can do to combat the resistance and easily move through the changes with little or no pain.
