Quatre – Weekend Roundup IV

The Weekend Roundup shares some great blogs I have read and a few I have writtenToday is the first day of Daylight Saving Time here in the US. I did a little research about the practice of Daylight Saving Time around the world. It starts today for most of the countries who participate west of the Atlantic in the northern hemisphere. It spreads eastĀ of the Atlantic in a couple weeks, and it ends in about a month for our friends south of the Equator. I still get amused when I hear people, especially politicians in the government, say that they are adding an hour of daylight every year by doing this, as if they could actually affect the rotation of our planet by making us all get up an hour earlier.

Tres – Weekend Roundup III

The Weekend Roundup shares some great blogs I have read and a few I have writtenHere we are at the end of another week, or the beginning of another week depending on how you look at it. Either way, it is time to take a look back at some of the interesting blog posts that I have read lately.

Last week all of the posts I shared were about blogging. This week is more diverse, only one of them has anything to do with the web at all. I’m interested in a variety of topics, as most people are, and these posts look into some of those other areas. Here’s the Weekend Roundup:

The Best Tool for Learning How to Meditate

[fb_embed_post href=”https://www.facebook.com/yonderwillow/photos/a.10152844716102674.1073741826.26246427673/10153199460652674/?type=1/” width=”350″/]

Meditation can be very hard for someone who has never learned how to meditate or what it feels like to be in a meditative state. Guided meditation programs are great for getting you into a meditative state but I don’t feel that they teach you how to do it on your own, so they can become a crutch. I really like brainwave entrainment programs because they can help you go very deep or into very specific states, and I have a few of them, but like guided meditations, they don’t teach you how to do it on your own.

Visualization – Can You Picture That

Visualization Can You Picture ThatCan You Picture That, performed by the Electric Mayhem in The Muppet Movie, is one of my favorite songs about visualization. If you want to create something, you have to see it first in your mind. As Bob Proctor has said, “Thoughts become things. If you see it in your mind, you will hold it in your hand.”

What does your vision of your future look like? What do you want to create? Have you seen it in your mind and imagined what it feels like? If you can’t see it, you can’t have it.
