2013 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 3,600 times in 2013. If it were a cable car, it would take about 60 trips to carry that many people.

Do you telephone people less than you use to?

Michael posted this question in Facebook, as you can see.
My response was as follows:

The HR guy,  where I used to work, talking about email, ten+ years ago, was telling me that he thought informal communication was suffering badly.
In that respect email has transitioned into Social Media and has improved again.
I have great friends that I have never met!

I think the phone as a verbal device, is now the casualty.
The phone is now the ‘Smart’phone which is predominantly a non verbal device but it is dominating communication.
It will be interesting to see how that will swing back.

‘Swings and Roundabouts’

 

That’s how it occurs to me.
What do you think?

Musical Motivation

I was just listening to Kiki Dee ‘Loving and Free’ from her Amoureuse album.

Isn’t wonderful how music can remind us of forgotten or significant times ?
Each is times-tamped within us and it always seems to show up when it is most needed.

 

This track was significant to me when I was having a tough time emotionally as a young adult – I was , truth be known, lonely and scared about that.

The fabulous words to this song took me onto something else in my life. They motivated me and I didn’t realise it at the time.
I have never been lonely since and I rarely experience being scared as a bad thing, more so a motivator

NLP Practitioners’ will recognise that as an Anchor.
Tunes like this and Pick Up The Pieces by the Average White Band (My waiting in Queues enjoying time anchor) are my Ear Worms


Bound, I am bound, like a knot on a string
Eager to be where my life can begin
Out of the shadow and into the sun
So many things that I should have done

I will untangle myself, so that I can see
I will untangle myself, everything will be
Loving and free

Bound I am bound, like a rope on a swing
Up in the air and then down again
Sure for the first time so clear in my mind
Wise to the feeling I gently unwind

Frequenting a vibration

temp

I was asked what this meant.

Here is my view:

We all vibrate – which is energy.
Everything in the universe is energy. Everything vibrates
If God is omnipotent and omnipresent, then God is everywhere all the time and is the energy (and it’s frequency) within you.
If you become aware of your state or how you are being at any point in time you tune in.
In which case you are tuning into God.

In NLP terms we observe how when people internalise, they create their reality.

Thinking, day dreaming, dreaming tend to be unconscious activities and we tend not to remember the insights we are getting whereas if we are conscious of our internal state we realise much more and have greater choice and freedom
