You can be brilliant

Ychyl quoteThe truth is you are already brilliant! Why you’re not seeing this brilliance reflected in your life just yet is for one simple reason – while you’ve spent many years at school and college and university training your brain to know what one plus one equals, you’ve not trained the part of your brain that knows how to find ensure you’re living your life in alignment with the pattern of your brilliance. This part of your mind is, of course, your intuitive mind.

Many of us believe our intuition is separate to us, that it comes from outside in a few extraordinary moments. While your intuition is the key to your brilliance, it isn’t separate from you. It’s just a part of your system you’re not using consciously. But now that can change! Remember, if you go back far enough the fact that you now know what I was thinking in a different time and place would’ve been considered magic. You perform this ‘everyday magic’ all the time without even noticing it because you’ve trained your brain to be able to do it easily. Your intuition can be just like that, as long as you know how to train it.

In my book The Soul’s Brain I reveal, for the first time, the principles of your intuition and how you can train this powerful and brilliant part of your mind.

Begin your journey towards having the ‘everyday magic’ of intuition today!

Your intuition finds solutions to seemingly impossible situations, alerts you to opportunities you hadn’t even imagined and gives you awareness of life events beyond what your physical senses can tell you. It’s  a beautiful and profound source of insight and wonder. And you can learn how to have this as part of your ‘everyday magic’ as you heal and expand your life in many ways. To make it that much more fun to gain this ‘everyday magic’ Hay House have included my lesson on “The Neurology and Logic Behind Intuition” as part of their You Can Heal Your Life Summit. This lesson will be released in series 6, on 14th May, but you can get started now! In fact, you can get access to some special lessons now, even though the summit doesn’t start until 4th May.

Come and learn “The Neurology and Logic Behind Intuition”.

In my lesson on “The Neurology and Logic Behind Intuition” you’ll be given an especially effective and easy way of developing the ‘everyday magic’ of intuition. It can often be hard to set aside time to train our system to work the way we want it to work but, fortunately, your intuition is part of your inbuilt system. It’s not meant to be separate from you. It’s meant to be part of everything you do. So when you know how you can just do a little bit every day (just a few minutes) and that will activate your intuition. That way, when you have a choice to make you’ll naturally make the choice your intuition reveals will have the greatest benefit for you. Of course, the fun part of your intuition is you may not be sure just how it’s going to be of benefit, but you can be sure it will be. Your intuition holds your alignment to your most brilliant self. You can activate your intuition most easily through the turbo soul seat meditation which I give exclusively in my lesson during the You Can Heal Your Life Summit.

Future tracking: the most elegant path to your most brilliant future

Now where ian schneider
Once you arrive at your new reality that’s where you’re going to have to live.

Where is your future taking you?

With all the chaos, fear and stress in the world it’s easy to get distracted. Unfortunately when you focus on all the negativity and difficulty, whether it’s your own or what’s going on in the world, all it does it make it harder for you to create what you want in your life. Whether that’s a more profitable business, a more intimate relationship or a more fulfilled life there is one essential ingredient you need if you want to create it. This essential ingredient is focus, which is exactly the thing that all the world’s chaos and upset attempts to take away from you.

Mind reader thu anh
Don’t let your focus get hijacked.

It’s been said that we no longer live in the information age but in the attention economy. We generally value most that which is scarcest. Back before the internet was created information was scarce, so we valued it more than we do today. The world wide web has made information abundant. Of course quality information is still scarce but now what is most valued is your attention. In a wide, interconnected world it is attention that has become scarce which is why there are so many things screaming to get your attention. This means you need to understand the value of your attention and not just in what you choose to follow on social media. Your attention and where you place it has a huge impact on your ability to create what you want in life.

The stronger your integrity the more clearly you recognise integrity in others
Who’s in charge of your focus? You? Or whoever’s shouting for your attention?

Your focus affects far more than you realise. If you’re focused on negative stuff your mood is also likely to be pretty negative. Focus on the positive and it’s easier to feel optimistic. When you focus on problems it’s harder to find the solution than if you’re focused on finding the way forward. How you use your focus also has a huge impact on your intuition.

The logic of your intuition, which you can read about in my book The Soul’s Brain, is pattern based. Another way to think about that is that it’s more concerned with your alignment than it is with putting things into the right / wrong basket. In other words, your intuition largely works by knowing what is aligned to your chosen outcome or focus and what isn’t. So when you allow your focus to be distracted by the fear, chaos and upset in the world you’re also putting your future at risk as your intuition won’t have the clear focus that makes it work best. So what to do about it?

How far is your future
Align yourself to your future and your intuition will take you there.

The most effective and elegant path to your brilliant future is to track your future. This means maintaining your focus on your future. That is, if you focus on your future-self, on the version of yourself you will be when you have created that brilliant future for yourself you’ll ensure you’ll keep yourself aligned to your future. This keeps your focus where you want it to be, on creating that brilliant future for yourself. One simple way to do this is to focus on your brilliant future self and ask ‘What would that version of me do? What would future-me do in this situation?’ If you do that, not only will you keep moving in the direction of your most brilliant life and what you want to create but your intuition will be able to work most powerfully to support you to get there as well.

Now the proof . . .

Souls brain cover with perspective
Join the paradigm on intuition. Read how it isn’t a mysterious and uncertain gift but a skill anyone can learn.

If you’ve been under a rock or living the last few weeks in a parallel universe you may not yet be aware that my book The Soul’s Brain: the Neurology and Logic of Your Intuition has now been released by Hay House. https://thesoulsbrain.paperform.co/ This book is a distillation of my work over the last quarter a century or more (I know – it’s sounds so long when I say it like that). It’s a light read which examines the link between what is going on inside your head with what’s going on outside in the world. Most especially it looks at how our brains can perceive a whole lot more than what our senses have evolved to. It’s a bit like your YouTube feed or internet searches. There’s a whole lot more out there than what you’re accessing but sometimes it’s tricky to figure out how to get to it. This is what is really meant when it says we only use 10% of our brains. It’s not that only 10% of it turns on but that we’re only accessing 10% of the information that our brains are absorbing.

All life is electromagnetic in nature frank mckenna
All life is electromagnetic in nature.

Much of the way your intuition works is through finding a way for you to use this information more consciously. A big part of this process is your brain finding a way to give you the information is picks up directly. Meaning that because the brain runs off bioelectrical activity it’s affected by all the electromagnetic radiation that makes up our universe. Your intuition is simply a way for your brain to help you to understand some of that information. The process of how that happens, and what to do to make the process work more reliably and with more conscious control, is what The Soul’s Brain is all about. Excitingly, a new study at Caltech has just released its findings and what they’ve found corroborates what I’m saying.

Earth energy bobby johnson
All electromagnetic energy influences your brain.

In the Caltech study https://www.caltech.edu/about/news/evidence-human-geomagnetic-sense they found a way to confirm that the human brain can sense changes in the earth’s magnetic field. Essentially the brain’s activity or brain waves shift indicating that the brain of people exposed to a shifting magnetic field is focused on what is happening. If you’d like to watch a video about how the study was conducted and what it means then click here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dg3pza4y2ws&t=10s This study shows the brain is aware and responding to what’s happening to surrounding magnetic field. This doesn’t mean that those whose brains respond in this way are aware of it or that they know how to interpret what they’re sensing, but as their brains respond consistently to the shifts in magnetism they could certainly train themselves to be consciously aware of what’s happening.

See the pattern right in front of you kyle loftus
Your intuition tells you more about the world than your five senses.

This is the same mechanism that underlies conscious intuition. We have five senses and we rely on the tiny slices of information they give us. These tiny slices are only select parts out of the whole range of electromagnetic energy. When we learn to interpret the energy our brains are picking up  – and especially when we learn how to accurate interpret it – even when it’s not within the range of any of our physical senses then we have conscious intuition. This process can bring us many benefits in our careers, relationships and passionate pursuits of all kinds. he more we can pick up and understand about our world the better we’re able to make choices and the more easily we create a world and a life that truly serves us, and the future.

Shapes are the words of our Intuitive Language

If pattern is the logic of our intuition and fractals are our language then shapes are perhaps the words that make up that language. Each and every shape you see around you conveys information because each shape is one way for things to be joined. The alignment of how we join with others, or with the world around us, can tell us a lot about what is going on.

Stop and think about this for a moment. You’ll realise you have a sense of what I mean even if you haven’t got the words for it (though I hope this blog will give you some of words to put to your innate understanding). Here are some basic shapes and some of the empathic, rather than mathematical, information they convey. Stop and consider each of these shapes, especially your reaction to them. Fractals are created from basic shapes repeated over and over again. By considering the basic shapes and what they convey you can begin to understand a little more of what each fractal is saying, and so your intuition can take that one step closer towards being conscious intuition.

Pine line pixabayStorm front line pixabayA straight line – joins two things together in a direct way. It is stable, clear and direct but it is also static.

Lampionblume flower triangle pixabayPlank triangle pixabayA triangle is more interesting as it introduces a third element. This third element could be either stabilising or destabilising, depending on the relationship. It opens up a line to new possibilities.

Cherries heart pixabay Leaf heart pixabayYou can think of a heart-shape as a special kind of triangle. Two of the corners are curved as they draw towards each other, rather than pointed, and the third remains as it would in the triangle. What does this suggest to you? That the closeness of the first two points allows the energy of the third to express itself in new ways?

Pyrite crystal pixabaySquares are seen rarely in nature. This in itself is interesting as it is the one shape we humans reproduce over and over again – along with its cousin, the rectangle. Squares are a ‘grown up’ version of the straight line. They hold each corner in a static relationship. Perhaps this is why we like them. They give the sense that we know what’s going on, but squares are so rare in nature that it reminds me of how we’ve recently realised that, for all of our science, we’ve only been studying about five percent of the Universe. We’re not even sure where the other ninety-five percent of the Universe is and what it’s made up from. We may like squares but they’re not that natural. You may think immediately of cliffs but they’re usually so eroded they’re not true squares. The only true square in nature I can think of is the pyrite crystal. Interesting that pyrite is called ‘fool’s gold’ and that gold has been regarded for centuries as both a symbol and a holder of value. Perhaps it’s time for us to realise that static relationships hold, at best, only fleeting value?

Daffodil circle pixabaySun circle pixabayCircles are far more common in nature than squares. They have both a centre as well as a diameter, which allows them to have an outward, radiant expression while maintaining the core of themselves. Circles cover every angle and so come closest of the linear shapes to the connectivity of true consciousness. In sacred geometry the circle is considered to be the most powerful and complete shape.

Snail shell spiral pixabayRose spiral pixabaySpirals are a special kind of circle. It’s more of a curve, and an open curve at that. It’s a curve in which every revolution is larger than the one before. The exact relationship of each curve to the previous one is ruled by the Fibonacci sequence, a kind of mathematical fractal, so naturally this is a shape we enjoy at Fractology. Consider what the spiral suggests. Each revolution is more expansion than the one before yet the centre is always maintained. This shape is a wonderful visual expression of the process of true personal and spiritual growth.

There are more shapes, and definitely more complex shapes that are made up of combinations of these basic shapes. Yet when you begin to consider each shape and what it means, what it supports and what it doesn’t, it will help your intuition become more conscious. Spend a little time each day looking around you and observe what shapes there are in your environment. What does that tell you about where you are?

Sacred geometry grew out of the study of the basic kinds of shapes I’ve been talking about here. The understanding of fractals came from topology, the study of shapes. Fractology is a further development of that as it enables us to understand the pattern-based logic of our intuition. As you observe how you respond to the shapes that make up your day you’re building a foundation for your intuition to grow.

Left brain – right brain: challenges and insights from the road

One of the joys of travelBrain2 pixabayling overseas to teach is getting to experience knowledge that is old and familiar to me in a completely different way. When I see what I know through the eyes of people who look at the world from a diverse perspective it forces me to explain things in a whole new way. This is brilliant as it gives me a new appreciation of old and loved material.

One of the most noticeable differences between the culture I grew up with and the Brazilian culture is one that, fortunately, Fractology is well-equipped to handle. My upbringing was a very left-brained one. Not only because my father is a mathematician but because the culture I come from seeks to understand anything before acting on it. This means that often long explanations and assurances are required before teaching anyone even the first step in the Fractology process of developing their intuition. The challenge at home is the classical one that many spiritual and intuitive teaches have to meet. It is the challenge of enabling students to accept the validity of their intuition deeply enough that they’re open to learning. In Brazil all that changes.

This is a wonderful, deeply empathic culture with deep shades of mysticism. This harks back to the unique history of the place and can be seen in the diverse and integrated influences that created what Brazil is today. What this means for Fractology and the development of intuition is that students here plunge straight into the work. There is an immediate empathic connection to the work which is profoundly right-brained. The challenge here is not to get students to open up to the work but to understand what they’re doing from a logical framework so they can do it consistently and with clarity. In other words, the process of learning here is the reverse of what it is at home.

At home the most effective method of teaching is left-brain to right-brain. Once students have a logical framework they can accept they’re far more open to all the many gifts their intuition has to offer. Here in Brazil where I’m currently teaching that would not be an effective method. What works best here is going from right-brain to left-brain. This back and forth between both sides of the brain is fortunately an inbuilt part of the Fractology system.  It is a necessary part of teaching intuition and self-awareness. It also has implications for other parts of our lives, such as business.

In business it’s most common to go left-brain to right-brain because a reliable and consistent method of operation is needed to get anywhere if you want to be successful. Knowing what you’re doing and how to do it most effectively within a highly specific focus is a great recipe for the operational side of any business. Yet any truly successful business person will tell you this isn’t enough. A great business system is an efficient way of making product, of getting the work out there but to be successful you also need to have what you’re doing be well-received. That is a more right-brained process.

Some businesses figure out the system first and then seek to connect to their clients. They go from a left-brained approach to right-brained communication. If they don’t make that switch they may have a great product but their marketing will lack heart and so their products won’t enjoy the success they deserve. The left-to-right-brain approach works well with companies that require a lot of research and development, such as medical supply companies. However today most companies, especially small companies, would do better to reverse this process.

The right-brain is what enables us to make that immediate connection. It’s what guides any business to the niche that will enable them to create an effective base from which they can grow momentum for outrageous levels of success. Microsoft is an example of a company that takes this approach. Whether you are a Mac or a PC person you can learn something from the way Microsoft does business. They throw together their next product and send it out to market knowing it’s not perfect. In other words, they’re far more focused on making that right-brained empathic connection with people than they are on having a perfect left-brained system. Once the product is out in the market they know their clients will give them feedback. Full left-brained understanding of each new product or system comes after they’ve put the product out to market.

In other words, both approaches work. They’re just different. The question you have to answer for yourself is – which way do I prefer to work?  Left-to-right-brain? Or right-to-left-brain?

7 signs your intuition is talking to you about your business

Money savings patternBusiness intuition is a hot topic right now. In our increasingly fast-paced world your business intuition can help you keep up and make your business thrive for years to come. Intuition is your in-built system for sensing what’s coming. Your business intuition is brilliant at predicting issues and problems before they become serious. It’s also essential for the next wave of innovation, including any which will affect you and your business. Learn to listen to your intuitive business side and you can use it to succeed in business. You will then be the one creating the changes, rather than being affected by them. To help you get started here are seven signs your business intuition is talking to you:

  1. You keep hearing the same subject in conversations or on your media.

Your intuition works through patterns so if you notice a pattern cropping up in your world, pay attention to it! This is a powerful sign your business intuition is talking to you, especially if the subject relates to your business. This sign happens most commonly when there’s a big decision to make. Focusing on your intention to find the best option is a great way to trigger your intuition to assist you in business decision making. Your intuition can supply the answer, but not always in the way you expect. If you keep hearing the same subject mentioned it’s probably because this is where you’ll find the answer you need.

  1. The thought of someone you haven’t seen in years keeps coming into your mind.

Only the other day a client mentioned to me she’d had persistent thoughts of an old colleague. She’d lost touch with them but a week later she learned he’d passed. Stories like these are common with general intuition but have a special significance in business intuition. If you keep thinking of someone connected to your business, either in currently or the past, it’s often a sign your intuitive leadership is required. Leadership puts the best team together and knows who to task with what and when. If your business intuition keeps pulling a particular person into your awareness it may be they, or their ideas, are needed for your team to succeed.

  1. You feel a strong sensation in your chest.

Your soul seat is in your upper chest. When you get a strong sensation in this area it’s usually connected with something that affects you and your authenticity directly. This is an intuitive sign your integrity may be affected by your business decision making. If the feeling is positive, it’s a good sign. If it’s negative, you may need to consider how you can achieve what you need to in a different way.

  1. You feel a strong sensation in your gut.

Your hara is in your lower abdomen. When you get a strong sensation in this area it’s usually connected with your goals and life-path. This is an intuitive sign your goals and dreams may be affected. If you pay attention to this sign it may help you succeed in business with maximum ease. If the feeling is positive, go for it. If it’s negative, then your intuition is supporting your business decision making by letting you know you’ll need to find a different path to your goal.

  1. You feel confident and happy even if you’re not sure of the decision.

Intuitive leadership means you often have to make decisions without all the information. This means you can’t be sure it’s the best choice. Yet if you feel good about your choice it’s a sign you’re using your intuition in business successfully. Your decision may not work out the way you expect but this is a sign it’ll work out well, one way or another.

  1. You feel uneasy about your choice even though you’re sure about the decision.

This sign can be one of the hardest to pay attention to, especially if the choice is one you’ve made before and it worked out well. Yet one of the most important ways your business intuition can help you succeed in business is in avoiding unnecessary problems. Sometimes things change without you realising it and if you’re feeling uneasy it may be an intuitive sign there’s something going of which you’re not aware. If you’re feeling this it’s time to check and re-check what’s happening.

  1. The same opportunity keeps popping up.

Your business intuition is also there to help you grow and achieve your dreams. If the same opportunity keeps popping up it may be a sign this will help take you to the next level so you can succeed in business. Your business intuition knows the way to success doesn’t always lie along the tried-and-well-trodden path but most often in the unexpected. If the same opportunity keeps presenting itself ask yourself how would it support your business. You may be wonderfully surprised by the answer.

The intuitive-edge in business

Are you haunted by the problems in your business or work life? Or do you know with absolute conviction that your business could be huge if you could Money treejust get ahead of the trend? Problem solving and creative innovation are the edge your intuition can give you in your business. From Steve Jobs to Oprah Winfrey, many business leaders speak about the importance of their intuition and how it helped them get ahead in their business. This is an edge you can acquire for yourself. You too can use your intuition to succeed in business.

In life and business there are only two categories of things you have to deal with. Those you already know and those you don’t know yet. Your brain is designed to handle both of these. That’s why you have two sides to your brain.

When dealing with something you already know you’ll probably need to pull up from the dim recesses of your memory or subconscious known facts and figures. These details, this data gives you the information you need to deal successfully with what you’re facing. If you’ve dealt with it well before you’ll pull up that data and do something similar again, hopefully with a similarly successful outcome. Your left-brain is really good at that kind of thing. That’s what its job is. This is the side of your brain that school focuses on. However good your grades were then, that was down to how well your left-brain stores that data. When you know something, you know it. The difficulty is that in business, as in life if you try to use what you already know to handle something you don’t know yet it’s probably not going to work out so well. That’s when the other side of your brain and your intuition comes into it.

Your right-brain doesn’t deal with known facts but with the patterns of life. Pattern-based thinking or using your intuition in business decision making is what the intuitive-edge in business is all about. None of us like having to deal with difficult situations, especially if we dealt with something similar unsuccessfully in the past. When you’re faced with such a situation you know you need to do something different, but what? Even more daunting are those moments in which you have to deal with something entirely new, whether it’s because the trend has changed or you’re taking your business into its next phase. Yet these moments are also where the biggest opportunities lie.

The chances are if you have a problem other people have it as well. Solving problems is a great way to grow your business. When your business intuition is working well you’ll be able to perceive the pattern running through the situation and use that to realign what you’re doing to solve the problem. To understand what I mean consider a tree for a moment. Your left-brain might know all sorts of facts and figures about a tree, like how the chlorophyll or the green-stuff in the leaves can turn sunlight into energy and takes carbon dioxide out of the air in the process. Your right-brain isn’t so interested in any of that stuff. It just looks at the whole magnificent tree and goes past that to recognise the pattern that created it. Then it does more.

The pattern shows you where the tree has a problem because that broken branch or piece of mistletoe doesn’t match the rest of the pattern of the tree. In the same way your business intuition will recognise where there’s a problem when the healthy patterns of your business are disturbed in some way. Just like the tree you need to get your business back into alignment with its healthy pattern to solve that problem.

What’s more your ability to recognise pattern means you know when one tree is the same kind as another because they both have the same pattern. This is the part of your business intuition which will help you recognise new opportunities. When your right-brain recognises a situation or opportunity that aligns to the healthy pattern of your business you’ll know, even if you don’t yet have all the data, that that’s a situation in which your business can thrive in. Saying yes to such opportunities is a wonderfully empowering way to use intuition in your business decision making.

So one of the best ways to succeed in business is to strengthen your intuition. Knowing your intuition comes from the pattern-based thinking of your right-brain gives you a clue as to how you can do that. Spend some time each week working on your ability to recognise patterns and your intuition will grow stronger. You can do this by spending time in nature which is full of complex patterns called fractals. You can watch fractal zoom videos on YouTube or simply look for patterns all around you, in the people you pass and the things you notice on your media feed. Or of course you could study Fractology.
