Of course not! When you are in good spirits, you naturally look sunny and positive, and this mental state will also affect others, such as your business partner, and will pave the way for fruitful conversation. By contrast, a lagging spirit is often associated with negativity, which will attract other negative things, including disease. How then, can we maintain a good spirit? Don't worry if you have no idea what any of this clinical mumbo jumbo means. You don't need to. In fact, there's no need for you to understand what's happening for the magic (oops, I mean science) to work. SVT is about immersing yourself in the experience itself--to heal and enhance your life. Would you be surprised to discover that SVT works more quickly than techniques that rely on conscious channels to heal or to help you reach your goals? It is also more powerful and can create fantastic transformation. Several reasons. First, SVT allows you access to memories that the conscious does not. As you'll learn in article 2--the nerdy brain science article--this is thanks to slow theta brain waves. Theta brain waves have been proven to help you access forgotten memories, including memories you weren't consciously aware of. Finally, our dreams are fragmented, whereas life is continuous. Then there's the question of whether or not dreams have meaning. I think this is a matter that entirely depends upon your point of view. Since time immemorial there have been those - scientists such as Sigmund Freud among them - who have believed firmly that dreams unearth deep messages from our unconscious, helping us to make sense of past events or anxieties in our lives. I think that dreaming is a time when you become aware of how your brain is processing information. For example, teeth probably mean work to a dentist, but they may symbolize death to someone looking to interpret their dreams by traditional associations.

So, do your dreams have meaning? Yes, if you believe they do. SLEEP CLINIC Why am I tired all the time? What's holding you back? It's not just that decluttering's boring and hard. It can be both of those things, but it can also be exhilarating - fun, even. For many of us, it's not lack of time or energy that stops us getting started, it's fear. Fear of the poignant, difficult and sometimes flat-out heartbreaking emotions that divesting ourselves of our possessions can bring to the surface - all those feelings that we've kept as neatly buried as if we had piled a year's worth of newspapers on top of them. In some cases, that's quite literally what we have done. Martha Beck, the American author and life coach, says, `Our living spaces are basically three-dimensional portraits of our inner lives. You can't declutter your living space without decluttering your inner life and vice versa. So to an extent, you need to be prepared for the feelings decluttering may release in you. If things were just things, it would be easy to ditch them. My process for uncovering truth, which in hindsight always passes a simple two-prong test: Begin with an idea that electrifies you, sourced from your own experiences, logic, or intuition, and consider it true if it: No one is left behind, no one is excluded, no one is judged. Could there be better confirmations for truth than our own experiences, logic, and intuition? It might be easy to brush these off as amateurish, until you consider that today's predominant beliefs do not pass their muster and have no rational basis other than to further scare and manipulate the masses. If there were better qualifiers of truth, what would they be?

Scientists? Aren't texts, creeds, and theories merely summaries of other people's findings? Better for you to experience life, go within, draw your own conclusions and then see how they stand up to those drawn by a few of the world's most revered, unbiased thinkers like Lao-tzu, Confucius, Plato, Socrates, Aristotle, Seneca, Marcus Aurelius, Descartes, Emerson, Thoreau, James, Nietzsche, Hesse, Gibran, or the thousands of other respected voices from history for confirmation. I hope this article one day gives your own experiences, logic, and intuition such confirmation as well. You don't need to chant to be accepted. You don't have to sit up straight like a perfect yogi and adopt certain mudras or hand gestures. You are not expected to be a yogi or to be yogic. You are not expected to have read the Bhagavad Gita. You are perfect as you are. All that is required is willingness to embrace this perfection. Our inability to recognise our own unique and beautiful individuality is deep rooted from our childhood. How many times have parents said, or continue to say, What is wrong with you? How many school teachers have said that we need to change our behaviour? Or, that we should behave more like this kid or that kid? Short-term focus is your ability to focus on the task at hand without being distracted by your thoughts, internal chatter or sudden ideas, or by your environment, noises, people interrupting you, et cetera. It is your ability to concentrate. When you concentrate effectively, you enter a state of flow and become far more productive. Your short-term focus can be enhanced through the implementation of adequate routines, proper planning and consistent practice. Transitional focus consists of the scheduling and daily routines you implement to remain focused long-term. It allows you to be efficient during your day by moving from one task to the other smoothly and effectively.

For example, it can prevent you from wasting time on social media or working on ineffective tasks. Long-term focus is the big picture, which determines what you must focus on every day. It is your vision. The clearer you can make your vision, the easier it will be to create an effective plan to work from. When we think this way, we bifurcate. We get stuck at the ends of the rope: Either I'm right or you are. Select one answer or the other. A leader is a hero who has clawed his way up the ladder of success and accumulated the most power over others. Success is measured in assets accrued. IKEA CEO Goran Carstedt calls the opposite approach a mind-share mentality. Wealth is created and carried by ideas and relationships more than by transactions. When things carry value, if I have one and give it away, I lose something. But when ideas carry value, everything is turned upside down. When you have a good idea and I have a good idea and we exchange them, you walk away with two new ideas and I also have two new ideas. Fifty-three days after he took to his deathbed he finally died. People often say they have no fear of death, adding that it is part of life and natural. It is also true, of course, that there is nothing more natural than being savaged by a bear. Before opiates pain was just one more of those natural parts of life that added to the sum total of human suffering. The process of dying is managed now with much skill, and a whole branch of medicine, palliative care, has developed to try to make the Philip II death a thing of the past. Yet still we get it wrong.

It is all too common for doctors not to recognize that a patient is dying and pursue suffering-prolonging investigations and treatments. Families may insist on treatment way past the point of no return, thereby protracting the pain and indignity. What about patient autonomy? Patients are usually far beyond being able to give informed consent by this time. But once we slow the spread (flatten the curve), we can reignite parts of the economy by phasing work back--either through age groups, health status, region, or a combination of such factors. If you eliminate the two-idea prison, you find that you can toggle between two goals to find the best recipe that can save both lives and an economy. It might be that people over sixty stay home longer; Our response to this pandemic proves that the two-idea prison is an obstacle to real solutions. It's never either/or--it's actually this and that. There's an infinite number of choices between total shutdown, and We're 100 percent open for business. Smart people (you and me) understand this flexibility. The media, sadly, doesn't. Flexibility also allows us to pull back and change course if the virus decides to return (it will). I could go on and on about the weirdness of this article's coming out now. Different can do that, too. It can cast you in a role and include you, if you'll play along. It can discard you instantly when you don't. And such is the label Aspie. Without my knowing it, my need for a script to follow, my hyperfocus on details and Mensa-level IQ, my profound loneliness and social naivety were all the product of being different. Yes - they were part of being Aspie, a word not exactly commonplace in the 1980s or 1990s.
