Ruin a movie to sharpen your mind

While taking advantage of some sunshine the other day, I got to thinking about something that’s rarely far from mind:

Metacognition.

I was thinking a lot about awareness – and how aware I was of my own awareness. All while soaking up the sights and sounds of nature.

It’s easy for me to focus on the world around me.

It’s even easier to lose myself in thought.

But doing both at once is usually a challenge. Not this time, though. I was effortlessly aware of everything around and within me.

The best way to enjoy a movie is to lose yourself in the story. Or, if you appreciate the craft, it’s to examine the writing, cinematography or whatever.

The worst way is to be fully aware that you’re sitting on a couch, scaring at a screen in a small (or not so small) rectangle, watching flickering images synced to unrealistic-but-exciting sound effects.

You can’t be in the scene and aware of the scene at the same time.

Life, though, is different.

You can immerse yourself in the present moment… and by fully aware of your own awareness.

That’s what mindfulness is all about.

But if meditation isn’t your thing – or it is but you’re looking for alternatives – then you’ll be interested to hear this:

What I mentioned earlier, about walking through nature and being fully present?

I didn’t meditate to get into that state of mind.

No, I used the Neural Reset on myself.

It’s funny – many meditators spend at least 20 minutes meditating at a time. Not because that’s a great length, but for a lot of them, it takes a good 15 minutes to enter the meditative trance. With the Neural Reset, it takes me maybe a minute.

You might enjoy these benefits just as fast, too. There are no guarantees… only that it’ll probably happen much faster and easier than if you tried to meditate.

It doesn’t require any special state of mind from you.

All you need is to focus on my voice as I guide you through it.

If you’d like to skip months of meditation training and start enjoying the benefits faster, then you should wander over here and sign up for a Neural Reset:
