Hacking Your Brain with Holosync…

Tuesday, 29 December 2015 by

Toward the end of October of this year I gave a keynote address at Dave Asprey’s Bulletproof Biohacking Conference in Pasadena, California. In case you don’t know Dave, he’s the creator of Bulletproof Coffee (and a Holosync user), and an expert in what is called “biohacking”–a very popular topic these days. A “biohack” is anything

You and Your Brain

Friday, 25 September 2015 by

Who you are–and everything you experience–starts with your brain: your moods, relationships, energy level, creativity, intelligence, and ability to learn. Your brain determines your personality, motivation, confidence, persistence, happiness, inner peace–and your ability to love and be loved. If you’re anxious, unhappy, or unproductive.. …that, too, comes from your brain. We all have brain areas

We each create what I call an “Internal Map of Reality” as we grow up. This Internal Map is my name for a collection of internal cognitive processes that create: ++How you feel (and other internal states)… ++How you behave (or fail to behave, in some cases)… ++Which people and situations you attract or become attracted

Holosync Case Study #1: Valerie Wilkinson From Panic Attacks to Inner Peace This is the first in a series of 18 interviews with people who’ve gone deeply into the Holosync program. I’m posting these amazing interviews, one every two weeks, because so many people have asked me, “What happens when you use Holosync for a

I was in New York being filmed for a documentary this last week and was away from my email when I heard the news about Robin Williams’ suicide. An event like this really makes you think, doesn’t it? Robin Williams was one of those rare people who felt like family to almost everyone. He entertained us and made us

Okay, I admit it. The word “sucks” is pretty strong. Perhaps your life doesn’t completely suck. And, yes, I know that it’s not a good idea to “focus on the negative.” The truth is, though, that everyone feels bad sometimes and we all experience people and situations we don’t want. And, for some, life does

I just reunited with a very old friend–after 25 years. I went to high school with Mary Morrissey, and then worked closely with her for several years when we were both in our early thirties. I have to confess that in those days I was a difficult and angry person–something I’ve described in some of

I’m posting this comment about my last post, and my response, as a post of its own, and as a FINAL way of dealing with the recent wave of people who don’t like my opinions about magical thinking and so forth.  Take it or leave it, folks. If this doesn’t do it, I’m done with this

The Human Condition

Tuesday, 28 September 2010 by

Two letters about some key aspects of the human condition, and my answers:

In this first letter, is it just my silly positive thinking, or do I have something else in mind when I ask this man to make a list of the benefits of losing his job? You decide.

Hi Bill,

You suggested that I make a list of the benefits of having lost my job. I think that is a crazy thing to do and I very much resent the idea of positive thinking. In fact, to me positive thinkers are just deluded fools who don’t have the guts to face the inevitability of death. Sooner or later, the sun is going to blow up and all living things, whether they have perfect abs or not, will be reduced to ashes. What I don’t get is why, while this is all coming my way like a truck barreling down the highway, I have to live and eat and have a family and buy a new air conditioner. I think you are asking me to play Scrabble while I am on a train that goes somewhere I don’t want to be, as though it could possibly help me enjoy the ride and divert my attention from what is really going on.

Boy, do I get some good letters. Here’s another one, with my answer.

Hello Bill,
I’m interested in understanding better why people in general can know that a certain way of life is good for them but continue on a course that isn’t. For example, smoking or being overweight. There is as much information available as we’d care to read on both topics, but people continue to do what is not good. Are they all “unconscious incompetents” even though they cognitively know what they are doing is not good for them. I haven’t smoked in many years but have just lost some weight and want to keep it off permanently. I “believe” being at this weight is good for me. What beliefs do I need to be aware of and guard against to stay at this healthy weight. How do I reach “unconscious competence” on this issue?
Thanks.
Ellen

Ellen,

You’ve hit on precisely why becoming more aware provides a solution to every human problem that has a solution (some don’t). People do most of what they do OUTSIDE their awareness, which means they do it automatically. What you do with awareness, though, you have a choice about. Awareness creates choice, and what I teach is largely about how to direct your awareness to what YOU DO inside your head that creates:

1) how you feel and the other internal states you experience,

2) how you behave,

3) which people and situations you attract or become attracted to, and

4) what the events around you seem to mean.
