By contrast, the young people listening to my afternoon lecture often look tired and absent-minded. Ancient Chinese people have realized the importance of an early night's sleep and a noontime nap. Mice are connected to yin and are thus most active in this period. But humans often work in the daytime and need yang energy to aid them. Instead of focusing on all the ways you felt out of control at the time, you could choose to replay the memory by focusing on what you did control. Depending on what has happened in your past, SVT gives you the opportunity to revisit the same memory over and over, reprocessing it in different ways and to differing degrees, or to discover a different memory each time you practice SVT for a new condition or concern. It doesn't really matter; Or perhaps you believe in a concept that's somewhat similar to Jung's collective unconscious. If you do, continued practice of SVT may help you unearth an image or archetype of great meaning or spiritual significance. In the early 1900s, Jung distinguished his theory of the collective unconscious from Freud's personal unconscious. The former encompasses the soul of humanity at large, while the latter focuses on one's own personal sexual fantasies and repressed images. Is it possible that you'll tap into a universal archetype like the ones we find in many fables, cultural legends, and myths? Do you personally believe that you can tap into your grandmother's dreams? Or perhaps the narrative your subconscious is weaving about your grandmother's dreams is helping you to make sense of your role in the family, and you know that it's symbolic of what she did for you. This means that babies need a lot of time to process new information: they need a lot of sleep. Baby sleep is polyphasic - that is, babies don't have a single, long period of sleep as adults do. Rather, their sleep is broken up into several distinct periods over the course of 24 hours. Once they reach two to three months of age, most babies will take their longest sleep during the night (still waking for feeds, but going straight back to sleep again). However, it's also normal for babies to take up to a year to get the hang of sleeping through the night. By their first birthdays, though, most babies are sleeping between nine and 14 hours at night, with one long nap of between one and three hours immediately after lunch.

A baby's sleep cycle is not 90 minutes, but 45 to 60 minutes, gradually extending to the full 90 minutes by the time the child is about four years old. Also, unlike an adult's, a newborn's sleep is made up of only two sleep phases - non-REM and REM. Each sleep cycle is divided roughly evenly between the two phases at first. Then, periods of REM gradually reduce and non-REM gradually increase, until all the sleep phases kick in along with the 90-minute sleep cycle at around four. You can create that for yourself, right now. Remember when we talked about how, in your home office, everything starts with the desk? In the bedroom, everything begins with the bed. Making your bed every day is the kindest thing that Morning You can do for Evening You. However rushed you are (my husband and I have an agreement that the person who gets up last has to make the bed, so there's an incentive to be an early riser, right there), the couple of minutes it takes is worth it when in the evening you come home to a comfortable bed, not a tangle of sheets. So start with that and build out from there. And so to bed A few years ago, I saw a piece in Martha Stewart Living magazine on organizing your bedlinen with each set - fitted sheet, top sheet if you use one, duvet cover, pillowcases - folded inside a pillowcase from the same set, so that they could be stored in a simple parcel of time-saving beauty. My friend, gardening writer Laetitia Maklouf, tweeted a picture of her own linens arranged this way and it was an image of such pleasing tranquillity, I actually invited myself over to take a look. I can highly recommend this method, particularly if you are short on storage space. From time to time, as your life allows, Often, that which you misunderstand is drawn to you. Never because you needed the lesson, And such thoughts, as all thoughts must, will rearrange your life And then, in attracting what you didn't understand, Spirituality should not be sought to avoid

Sometimes the people who know, don't know they know. And sometimes the people who don't know, think they do. But you can always tell who is which, A test that reveals whether or not those in your company The infinite library of the universe is in our own minds. The Sufi are a mystical branch of Islam. I grew up fascinated with the Sufi path and my family, although not directly Sufi, are hugely influenced by its teachings. The Sufis, like yogis, have an inward approach to life. one of my favourite articles on the Sufi's, Recognising Sufism, the author Arthur Buehler starts with one of the most well-known stories involving Mullah Nasreddin, a wise-fool character used to convey a particular message. Once, the great Mullah Nasreddin was searching for something on the ground outside his house. His neighbour asked the Mulla what he was looking for. The Mulla replied that he was looking for his keys. His neighbour asked him, Where did you leave them? The Mulla replied, Inside the house. How much of these blocks you'll be able to schedule during your week depends on the type of work you are doing and your situation at home. But even a few blocks will make a difference. Then, make sure no one will interrupt you. At work, inform your co-workers you do not want to be interrupted. Tell your boss it will make you more productive. If you can, article a room or go to a place where nobody will disturb you.

At home, let your family members know they should not interrupt except in a case of emergency. Don't react, schedule appointments. If someone at work comes to ask you a question, instead of helping them right away and losing your train of thought, agree to meet at a specific time that works for both of you. At home, if you're working on something, let your family members know you will help later in the day. Once she understood that this attribute was really the thinking talent of having confidence in disguise, she learned to adapt her language and style to her benefit. This resulted in her being promoted to account director--a position where having confidence magnetized clients, who felt like they were in capable hands. In order to make sure we are using our talents well and creating excellence as a result, it's also important to look at when and where we exhibit a shadow attribute and then transform it. We are all naturally equipped with the most powerful tool to change habits--self-awareness--but we might not all have fully developed this tool. To transform a shadow attribute, you need to name it, contain it, and aim it. Name it by identifying the thinking talent that it's associated with; Repeat this practice with each of your shadow attributes--name it, contain it, and aim it until the thinking talent is readily apparent to you. Jack is a perfect example of this. He is chief technical officer of a major film studio who has the talent of thinking logically. He needs to reason through an idea before he will buy into it. The man died on the intensive care unit in spite of all our efforts. Within weeks there was another case and then another. It was not just the lungs that were affected. There were numerous young men with weight loss and unexplained fevers. Sometimes there were enlarged lymph nodes that could be biopsied. The biopsies would be teeming with mycobacteria, the same type of organism that causes tuberculosis.

It is the devil's own job trying to see the tuberculosis organism under a microscope as the body seals off the bacteria with a complex inflammatory response. In these cases it seemed the body was not fighting the infection in the normal way. The laboratories tried to grow these mycobacteria and found to their surprise that they were not the usual human or bovine bacteria but of a type usually found in birds. The torrential diarrhoea from which these poor young men suffered was similarly puzzling. I never should order bat again (at least from a street vendor). Anyone who has left a long relationship understands this. Women get it. The cliche about the clock ticking is rooted in reality, that is biology. True, we hold on to the long relationships because of the time invested, but women also have that extra layer of pressure: if you want to have kids, either freeze your eggs or get moving. It's the investment of time that keeps us locked in a bad scene. Because once you leave, where does all that time go? We see it as a waste, and we can't bear to think that everything we went through was for nothing. But we've all done this, so that should be soothing in itself. So, why were you with someone when you knew it was going nowhere? It feels good, safe. Delete buttons and emoticons enable Aspies to deliver an idea before we are (so easily) distracted and lose it. We can reread, edit, and rework phrasing. We can start over completely. But most importantly, it is all there to see - to perceive concretely, sensorially. Via written illustrations or shared photos, we can show rather than tell - anyone who thinks in pictures knows that is a good thing.
