The Lucid Takeover: A Journey to the Good Life

Recommended Posts

Thanks guys,

 

I totally feel you and George on that.

I make more and more progress every day, even when things don't go as planned.

Today I was worried and frustrated with some stuff..but even when I felt myself get discouraged I still went "there's no quit option".

 

Sometimes practice doesn't go as planned.

Sometimes practice doesn't go perfectly.

And then I notice, it's practice.

It's normal not to do it perfectly at first.

 

I'm getting in the swing of this action Era I've made for myself.

 

Today I've made more progress with

 

1) Piano

Practiced for the first real time today.

It was rough at first, but then I felt the flow state and time just passed.

It's one thing to plan what you'll do, its something else to do it.

I did make progress even when I thought it was hard as hell.

But I wasn't leaving it until I saw some level of progress.

 

It's also a new idea for me:

Conscious, deliberate practice > practice for the sake of doing an action

 

What's mechanical and intentional at first will become automatic.

What's done automatic in practice won't stick as much with me here.

 

It feels the opposite with vocals, which I'll go over in a second.

 

2) Vocals

Lessons Learnt:

Stop being so fucking shy

Don't Squeeze 

Divorce the idea of sounding like your idols

Use the blue ocean of your own sound. You sound like you. Get over it. It's an advantage.

No one can sound like you and you cant sound like anyone else.

Singing is Spiritual: Be vulnerable, be your true self. This is a life lesson for everything.

Let go.

I want to write an entire post on this later tonight. Which I will.

 

 

3) Songwriting

I've made learning & reading pacing goals for myself.

I seem to stick with these well. A process of reading, learning, experiencing and reviewing before I move on.

That's in term of theory. I made some progress today on that. Not as much as I think I would've liked, but progress still.

 

Also I've found a chord progression that I absolutely LOVE the sound of. Who knew Hey Jude and Heal the World had a progression in common..

I'll be using that. Reverse engineering my favorite songs helps learn the craft.

 

I've GOT to get into the habit of my morning writing routine. Which I'll start tonight in order to jump-start myself.

I can't just read and not do--so here we go. I'll be getting on that tonight.

 

 

4) Writing and Conceptualizing for Album #1

1 Song partially conceptualized.

Song sequencing (sort of) conceptualized so far.

And the opening track is also conceptualized.

After I have a solid feel for the product, it's a different ball game.

I'll be doing the thicker meat of it then.

 

I'm hoping that songwriting group will be helpful to me!

I've got a growing list of 112 voicenote concepts

and about 80+ (and growing) written notes.

 

Progress feels like a guided projectile or a plane.

It's never on course ALL the time. Wind changes. Shit happens.

But it gets back on course and goes on and off and stays in a general direction.

Over time I guess I'll tighten up and get in a good chain of action.

They always get to their destination eventually, right?

 

Lessons learnt.

Let's Go!

PS: I know I'm posting a LOT lately. It's because I'm deciding to use this thread as my personal journal to the public of sorts. Even stuff I don't necessarily want to put in the public, I'm putting down here. Because I think getting that exposure and stepping out will help me. Which it has.

 

Once the album comes out and tracks are laid (and copyrighted), I'll gladly post it here as well.

Hopefully you'll buy it, eh? :)

Distractions.

I keep distracting myself and slacking.

Like, I'm working.

Just not hard enough in my own opinion. 

 

I got distracted and didn't get to write much. I did end up reading though.

I'll begin my writing ritual tomorrow, and systematically begin writing exercises beginning then. 

No excuses. 

Atleast on the bright side, I do know exactly what I'm doing for practice and honing my skill.

I didn't before. Now I do. Now I need to do it.  

 

I do have a concept working for the album and getting something more concrete down. 

This is more on the same scale of the above thing too.

Conceptualizing --> Planning -->  Doing

 

All that kind of stuff. So anyways, here I'm gonna share some wisdom on my own battles with Vocal Ability.

Remember how I said you've got to get ride of society's projections they put on you?

Well here I am about to lay it out for myself again. 

 

Grab something to sip and munch on it's gonna be long.

Also cover your ears if you're sensitive it's about to get vulgar again. 

 

This is for all the singers. Because I'm about to outline every struggle I have as a singer. And then I'm going to reveal the truth and debunk these lies that you've been told, and I've been told. 

And also ease the beliefs that are actually false about the craft.

 

Bullshit Fallacy #1

I am afraid of singing

 

Bullshit #2

I am afraid of being heard

 

Bullshit #3

I am even afraid of being heard practicing.

 

Bullshit #5 (Skip 4 cause yeah)

I am afraid of not being perfect

 

Bullshit #6

I am afraid of not being good enough

 

Bullshit #7

I want to sound like someone else

 

Bullshit #8

I'm afraid of showing my true self

 

Bullshit #9

I am afraid of showing my raw emotions, being vulnerable.

 

Bullshit #10

Your voice is mediocre.  Average at best. Doesnt sound professional.

 

 

 Bullshit #11

You sound shit when the bakcing is gone

 

bullshit 12

oyu dwont evr get that professional sound

 

bullshit 13

you wont make it, practice wont get you there because youre doing it wrong, its too hard or not happening fast enough

 

Bullshit 14

You were told and beleved, convinced that you 1) singed horribly

You had a negative experience in a suggestible state (youngness) when you put yourself out there emotionally and were cut off. 

 

Bullshit 15

b3cause of this you havent ofound your true voice, are obssessed with sounding othe than you are.

You have 'pretty voice' syndrome.

Which decreases your range, tightens, causes muscle tension in the abdomens , lack of breathe and laxk of resonation.

Whats right for one voice isnt right for you. 

 

 The Truth, Liberation

Liberation #1

Ill also be adding Salvador Dali's 10 commandments. As they have much insight for us too. 

 

None of this will make sense though, if you dont get up off your ass every day and record yourself, practice earnestly and sing like youre not singing. (Ill explain that later).

 

Since I do need to get up early tomorrow, I'll make my morning routine fit into finishing this post and making it readable . These are all ltierally my mental notes so..patience.

[iNSERT EXPLOSION HERE]

 

That's how I feel RIGHT now.

I have a headache.

I didn't really eat for the day. I had small fruits and a bowl of oats.

Two liters of water.

 

I feel overwhelmed with work...

My body craves sleep.

I feel like I'm slacking, working hard, making progress and not making enough all at the same time.

Does that make sense?

 

Basically here's the issue and how I'm gonna fix it.

Too many things working all at once.

Not enough intent focus when you're doing certain things.

Not all things. And not all the time.

The fact is I still made progress.

 

I'm nailing the C Major Scale (Right hand going up, thumb motion and everything) pretty well.

My vocal exercises are only getting better and better and I feel better and better discovering my own tone and ease.

My songwriting creativity is being massivley helped by these books and sources I write..although I've been overwhelmed by them.

I'm not pracitcing WRITING enough.

I'm not conceptualizing the album enough if you had to ask me. How many times have I said I was gonna do those two (above) things..and didn't go do them.

My diet = my body = my health = my mind = my craft. So I'm BACK eating clean.

Well  not today. Sort of. I barely ate today and I'm paying for it.

 

I haven't been reading like I want to..

School wise, I havent been doing enough work to keep up either (that's not that big a deal since I'm pretty good anyways) 

I also need to organize some volunteer hours for my scholarship..

 

 

Okay so this isn't time to mope. Here's what I'm gonna do.

-Cutting a section off my schedule temporarily--skip the gym.

Too many moving parts at once for now. When you get all these snapped in properly, you can begin a new one.

 

-Adding break time to blow off steam 

 

-Actually going to sleep on time for my next day.

 

-Actually follow a clean diet and take care of yourself. Not going to the gym is not an excuse.

 

All those things will make getting the craft in much easier.

I'll have energy, time and I'll be asleep. My health will be better.

Here's something more.

 

Objective Observation Logging 

Books that are read require notes

Daily exercises -- Some new every day (cherry picking the ones I like best) 

Album #1 --Conceptualization folder & Song Catalog

 

Logging for practice pertaining to:

Piano

Vocals

Writing

Dance

 

Specific Goals and Outcomes (Ease of tone, get an easy head voice, play half C Major, Read up to here, etc etc) 

What can be improved from this session?

What went well from this session?

What did you learn?

 

--I have a file for this pertaining to my vocals and piano, which have worked really well for me.

It helps me get better over time.

 

Note.

I'm still going to finish that above post. Just not now.

I need to re-calibrate quickly for tomorrow.

It wasnt a rough week.

It was a bumpy week.

But, I'm happy with the results.

Today is one of the more streamlined days Ive had in light of my last posts.

I did quite a good bit today I cant complain..

 

Vocals were good..

Piano was good..

Networking was good..

Time management was good..

Songwriting was good..

Practice was good..

 

No complaints, I'll use this day as an example and build on what I did.

Maximize!

 

One question for all of you.

Can someone out there help me with what "Image Streaming" is?

 

I want a conversation namely :)

 

If not, I'll figure it out.

Ah thanks!

George is always good at explaining this stuff.

Ill def be doing this daily.

To be honest it sounds like a writing exercise I do daily.."object writing" or "destination writing".

It's a form of free-association based on a single word. You use a single word as a platform to jump off of and you go in descriptive sense-bound language wherever it may take you. I put my timer on for 10 minutes every morning and that's it.

 

The thing is I was curious because I've noticed if I heard a motif or an inspiration idea and I record it into my phone, improvising and just going wherever my mind takes me usually brings something interesting. I was wondering if image streaming could help me with this sot of process related to music and not images.

 

I guess,, stream of conciousness from your mind's ear?

I haven't used Image Streaming as much as I could. This is one of those things that I haven't been super into because in this phase of my life I just haven't had it high on my priority list. I feel if you're in college, etc. it's fantastic for students. It's certainly very interesting when you sit down and go through things. I did a lot of image descriptions and how inventions could've worked - Guns, Arrows, etc. and some other stuff too. It's great for developing your imagination - and like Einstein says, Imagination is more important than Knowledge itself. Depending on how my life goes this year I might place it higher on my priority list.

Updates Thus Far:

 

So it's been a good weekend. 

Good progress so far, I've gotta say.

I need to set up a "songwriting seminar day" to compile everything I've learnt over the months.

May take some time to do..

 

Piano:

C Major Scale,right hand motion: up, down is going very very smoothly 

Practicing scales makes me feel so much more comfortable at the piano.

My accuracy has gotten much better. My mindset is a lot better. 

It cuts the magic out--even though it does feel very magical to me(ill explain later). 

 

I learnt my learning greatly improves when i'm in the dark, the humidifiers on, candles lit, scents are in the room and music is in the background with headphones in my ears plugged to my piano. 

 

My piano does have a name by the way. I call her Bethany.

Sometimes I call her Galaxia.

I have differnet names for different times. Just a little tidbit about me.

   

Vocals:

Lesson 1: Discovering Voice (Head Voice, that is, in an easy tone)

I can officially say Ive gotten much better in..

1) Producing a good head voice and erasing, smoothing out the break between  chest and head

2) Extending some of my range

3) Improving my resonance and begin making a habit of point 1,2 and projecting my voice more outwardly in the mask

4) Using the body more correctly--you can feel resonance from the forehead to the tailbone. It's a great feeling actually.

Feels like I'm an actual instrument. Which I am. 

 

Now, vocal lessons are all about engraining a habit. So that the limitations to the voice are taken away to expose it's beauty. 

Thats why daily practice is necassary. It's to train a habit. No practice session is PERFECT, neither is my piano..

but everyday I learn something 1) New  2) Correct myself and learn next time.

 

My lesson this time is, remember to resonate the voice in the cheeks and mask area.  

 

 

Important Lesson : Piano is meditation, so can be vocals

Clearly stated, i tend to get a mood lift everytime I vocalize or play the piano.

I tend to get into flow very easily doing these things. Probably because I'm so focused.

Especially with piano-not to donwplay the vocals..but something about it makes me feel so good and forget time. 

 

Important Lesson : Treat yourself, youre own good life.  

So I bought a few things recently to make myself a bit more comfortable..

I got a scented candle.

A humidifier, which is mostly for my voice to keep my voice moist--it can get dry around here. 

I drink about a litre of water before I vocalize and wait a while before beginning, don't get me wrong.

But humidity helps me feel good. It's not a gross level of humidity. It's just a cozy warmth. 

And I'm also a fan of essential oils and scents--I use coconut oil on my body all the time.

So I bought a diffuser.

 

The point is. I took a break today because 1, I felt worked  2. There was a power outage (hence candle). 

What I discovered was..candle lights and humidity really make me feel good. I mean, I felt so relaxed and open. 

And then I did my piano lessons in that environment..and my vocals (yes, even on my day offs these are non-negotiables) 

Wow was it amazing. I felt so much in a good mood. And it taught me something.

 

These tools, or discoveries, can be used as a mechanism for my own growth. 

If you feel good and are comfortable while youre in action, youll thrive.

I dont know how to explain it.

But it brings me good feels. So I'll keep these things up. 

 

  1.  PS. (Holy smokes talking about non-negotiables, my daily writing isnt done for today! I'll get that done once I'm done here).

Weekly Updates Coming Soon.

Some thoughts on LOA 

Something about the LOA is oddly real...I think..I don't know still. 

I wanted an objective experiment to see if subliminals really do trigger some sort of LOA response.

So I did something simple. Something I can undeniably feel the resultts of. So I played around with some 'make your crush go crazy' or 'get your ex back' tracks. Partially because 1) I really needed some action 2) I needed to see what works and what doesnt

 

No bullshit. No hippie-granola mediation shit. Just listen. Think.

And then I figured whatever. I forgot. 

 

Here's the weird part.

My ex texted me. Even after I cut ties with her. Twice actually.

Once "drunk". Once "sober". She's desperate, I get it. (which, by the way, I dont agree in getting back with exes.)

 

Next my old friend I lost contact with texted me.

Shes not exactly a crush. Yeah my type. And yeah super cool and friendly.

But that's where it ends for me.

We're friendly. Wink wink,

And she wanted to hang out. THE NIGHT she texted me. At 11.30pm.

On a week day.

So I went. You know what happened. We had a good time.

 

So...experiment concluded.

Does it work? I don't really know, it could've been a fluke.

I'll have to try more? I feel like if I can experiment with this and get hits again and again, it'll be confirmed. 

 

PS

Minutes after I typed this. Two of my friendly friends texted me.

No, our relationship isn't built solely on sex. But it is interesting..

 

PSS

So I guess all my friendly friends just want to start texting me now huh?

Third encounter.

 

Weekly Progress updates and observations/critiques coming soon!

It works on Probability from what I've noticed, Loozid. 

 

The chances of you getting with your ex is pretty easy. The chances of you getting with say, maybe a long time friend who's also your perfect 10? Also easy. She's in your environment, and her thoughts can be influenced by yours. Great thing about this is... no more friend zone. High probability. 

 

That being said, if the thing you want is out of your environment and everyday interactions, it's difficult. You will in that case have to expand. So let's say the girl you target is like a borderline celebrity, or someone that's well outside your comfort zone- you'll have to step out and do something different. This has a low probability. 

 

I tinkered with it for a bit too. Then realized it'd be way more interesting if I was in the right environment (working on that as we speak).

That's a cool way to think about it.

I think I can relate to that concept.

 

As for doing things outside my envrionment..boy I'm working on that too with this album project.

When the final product (music and live performance content) is ready...gee I'll be flung into a new scope.

 

Note to self for my later updates.

I'm known to scream at pretty high (very "unmasculine") high pitches when I'm startled.

Partially because, well', my voice's coordination is allowing me to go pretty damn high without even trying..

I spilt something today and went all the way to note E above male high C (which for those vocalists out there, I'm counting as an octave above piano middle C) 

 And I've only just BEGUN training in phase 1 of 14.

Alright Inventory Time

 

Phase II of Vocal Work has begun.

My head voice has been accessible, I've eliminated a lot of tension. Phase I objectives have been met.

Now it's time for a challenge, so Phase II, High Notes, are being worked on.

 

Phase II in Piano has begun.

Left and right hand, both up and down, is mastered for C Major in terms of finger position. 

Left hand needs some more work, but now I'll be working on speed exercises.

Muscle memory has easily gotten me through left hand coordination.

 

Writing:

For FUCK sakes Lucid. Please write more.

You have suchhhhh good ideas. 

Please. Find time to do it. Do it or die.

Seriously. Take it seriously.

Bright side, lots of ideas are coming thanks to my exercises. 

 

Big Problem...

An issue on balancing school work and my actual life..

Two tests.

Two papers.

Volunteer Hours..

Meetings..

All this week..

Plus I need to write, vocalize, practice piano, learn music theory and still keep up with going to classes.

 

This week and last week have been bumpy in that regard. But no matter what I keep trying to do my non-negotiables.

Vocals E'VERYDAY no matter what

Piano EVERYDAY no matter what. I dont care if its for five minutes.

And WRITING EVERYDAY, which, I havent been doing. But for fuck sakes I'm gonna do it.

Yknow what, I may dare myself to type out my daily object writing on this forum to keep a chain going.

maybe. I dont know.

 

Here's whats gonna happen..

1) Finish those papers

2) Finish those tests

3) Go to those 2 meetings.

4) Figure out where you need to volunteer at.

5) Vocalize, piano and write every day. And get those ideas working and writing. Your life must be seen as music. That's the difference being made. The show can't stop because you got busy. You are the music. You're living it, so don't stop. Keep it up in some regard.

 

Progress is the name of this game.

 

One more thing.

This week beginning tomorrow I'm attempting to get full-swing back into schedule.

Will re-evaluate during the weekend and reload.

 

An issue on patience.

When I first began practice I was blown away and inspired by my progress.

No, I havent hit a plateau but in the vision of having gotten new SKILLS, I need to remember that these new skills didnt happen by accident.

There were days that practice didn't happen perfectly. Times where I didn't always do it as effectivley, but I learnt all the time and improved.

 

So I need to remember, have patience in these new phases of learning. Just like your past skills they take time and learning.

I need to re-open my observation-improvement documents and start back with that too.

 

So I've gotten a little off track. I admit it.

Good thing I caught it early before it got out of hand.

Lesson learnt. 

I'll be adjusting. This isnt the time to explode and give up.

Yes I'm stressed. But I'm waking up tomorrow with some boldness and I'll keep going.

 

Vocalization

Piano

Writing

Keep these up.

Progress progress progress!

 

~LUCID

 

 

PS.

I found two people that I absolutey loved the way they dressed.

So I'm going to steal it.

So cool. 

Oddly enough they both wore red..

One was a red leather jacket, white pants, and very sleek black loafers. 

The other was a sort of latexy shiny leather longsleeve. Ive NEVER seen that before. 

I dont remember his pants. mustve been black.

But his shoes were some sort of black suede loafer, white socks exposed neatly under the cut.

I'm pretty sure they were steve maddens.

 

Honestly I walked by him and thought "Thatll be my performance look, I know exactly how to adjust that to myself."

It was like looking into a mirror.

It's morning and my focus is renewed.

 

With my new observation-improvement documentation for my second phase of vocal training, all of a sudden my vocals are sharper, more focused.

Namely, my focus is making me do better. Lesson learnt. Focus. Progress. Focus. Progress.

 

I'll be continuing this.

Weird LOA thing?

Or coincidence?

 

Short story.

 

Cute girl in my class. I moved next to her intentionally the other class because I HATED the people next to me because they ALWAYS talked.

Anyways I've been thinking a lot about her--she's pretty damn cute. We got along well a few times--some laughs and what not during the class sessions. She even got up and went "i need to ask you more questions because you know what you're talking about."

 

So I continued my experiment with the online subliminal video I found. Continued listening on a loop as I just went through my day.

 

I checked my mail today. I always get mail from companies sent to different people that used to live at my apartment that probably didn't change their address once they moved out. Now usually I just throw these letters away, but as I was going through the names I found HER NAME. I mean it could be someone else. But it has her first name, last name and the same college we go to..what are the odds?

 

Seems like a good conversation started for next class.

Hello Subliminal Family, 

GOOD LORD.

 

Okay. Confession.

I'm off track.

I mean, REALLY OFF TRACK. It's actually a bit frustrating, let me explain. 

I've been hit with a LOT of school work which threw me down off my usual training regime.

Also I got way too cocky and complacent in my routine which is a bit..well..sad.

 

What do I mean?

1) Too cocky and expecting to learn things too quickly, leading to frustrating. Even though I KNOW my skills took time to get a hold of. It was the mantra of observe-and-correct and progress that made me excel. No brute force.

2) Lazy. Just lazy. Did I lose sight of my goal? Yes. I did. Period.

3) Not enough action. Too busy with other things. Slowed down progress.

4) I don't know what it is but the new scales I've been working on have had me 'intimidated' to do them. Which I dont even know why. 

    Needless to say, I'm doing it anyways. Whoever hears me flunk my practice shots can eat it. I've got to get over that fear.

5) STRESS. TIREDNESS. It affects my vocals mainly. Not cool. Also I'm planning to switch my morning vocals to the afternoon--I have less mucus and my voice opens up higher in the range this way. Much more vocal compression. 

 

 

Note. And this is to you, George if you're listening.

I took your advice on image streaming, but I did it a different way I guess.

Turned off my lights, put in some Light Theta tracks, laid down and asked myself "what is this album about" 

And there we go. I got inspired for an elusive track that I've been wanting to get done. 

and then I fell asleep--woops.

I just described the images I've seen and before I knew it I was hearing things through my mind's ear. 

 

There's one more thing. 

I've been stuck brainstorming (See this is where I get my issue "waiting for inspiration") about what my next step is since I'm off track.

"What do I do now.."

"How do I fix this.."

"I need to write down what I'm gonna do.."

"I need to write down what this album is...what it is I need to do..what I want..why.."

Um. No. 

What you need to do is DO something. 

 

The fact is that I get stuck in a loop of needing to "write" things down for inspiration. 

I don't need it. It's a crutch to make me feel better about doing nothing. 

I return to my mantra of

 

"It's not talking about it that feels good, it's doing it"

and following this mantra's gotten me MUCH farther than any 'writing down' business. 

The only 'writing' I'm doing is on this journal and that's for my own expressive venting and to portray a realistic journey to you all. 

 

I heard Lady Gaga (Wow, Superbowl was cool huh?) say something like it in a press conference. 

If you want to be something big, you can do it. But youve got to live it, breathe it, sleep it, eat it. 

 

Oh yeah?

Alright cool.

It's time to get unhealthily obsessed. 

The addictive behavior is going to come out the closet. 

I've returned to my do-or-die mentality. 

 

I don't know about you, but there's freedom in the right forms of obsession to me. 

Time to get to work. 

 

You don't need inspiration. 

You don't need motivation.

There are people doing what you want to do without ever having needed it.

This is life. Grind grind Grind. Progress Progress Progress.

 

I've come up with an idea. Ever since breaking through this one learning phase..and losing my way.

It's OKAY to get lost and off track.

It's NOT OKAY to remain lost and off track for very long.

So What'll I do after this post?

 

The day is still early, so although I didn't do much I'm going to play a little catch-up 

 

--> Gonna chug a liter of water and turn on my humidifier (this is prep for my vocals)

--> Meanwhile, I'll re-summarize and aquaint myself with my books, then I must finish book #1 this week onto book #2 for learning by next week.

--> Vocals should be well hydrated by now. So it'd be time to warm up. 

--> Also, I'll be reviewing my other resources (1 more book)

--> Honestly Im surprised how QUICKLY I was able to learn left hand and right hand for my scales. Time to go onto phase II: Speed. 

--> My Daily Object Writing (Gee Lucid you said you were lacking inspiration but you STOPPED writing. I wonder what the cause could be). This plays into my idea that creative drought does not exist. You create it when you believe it. 

--> Then onto my lyrical learning book. I've learnt so much off of them. I'm continuing full speed ahead to try and catch up to where I need to be. 

 

 

 

I need to push pretty damn hard.

And I'm excited. Let's go. 

On wards to progress.

Quick Question

 

Ive noticed something about the theta waves and beats I've been seeing used around here and how they compute different on certain devices. 

 

Whoever can answer this, much appreciated.

 

Does it matter if the beats aren't being played individually in each headphone?

For example if you hear a binaural beat, the left and right shouldn't wobble (these are the 2 frequencies together in one headphone). This is what I understood as ideal.

Sometimes though on different devices I hear it 1) Left and right don't wobble, using 2 distinct frequencies OR sometimes its 2) Both headphones wobble. 

 

I'm not gonna try and explain what I mean. Pretty sure you get it if you know how binaural beats work. 

 

Thanks Family,

That's really cool and I think you DID manifest that. 

 

What you said also reminded me that there was this guy who just wanted sex but at one stage, he also proposed to me, once drunk and then about two days later, sober.  To be honest, my thoughts were along the lines of jeez dude, I don't want to MARRY you, i JUST want a FREAKING DATE! 

 

I think your attitude is really good too, it's good to be PLAYFUL about this, maybe experimental too, it's a good, easy going and POWERFUL approach to take IMHO. 

 

 

Weekly Updates Coming Soon.

Some thoughts on LOA 

Something about the LOA is oddly real...I think..I don't know still. 

I wanted an objective experiment to see if subliminals really do trigger some sort of LOA response.

So I did something simple. Something I can undeniably feel the resultts of. So I played around with some 'make your crush go crazy' or 'get your ex back' tracks. Partially because 1) I really needed some action 2) I needed to see what works and what doesnt

 

No bullshit. No hippie-granola mediation shit. Just listen. Think.

And then I figured whatever. I forgot. 

 

Here's the weird part.

My ex texted me. Even after I cut ties with her. Twice actually.

Once "drunk". Once "sober". She's desperate, I get it. (which, by the way, I dont agree in getting back with exes.)

 

Next my old friend I lost contact with texted me.

Shes not exactly a crush. Yeah my type. And yeah super cool and friendly.

But that's where it ends for me.

We're friendly. Wink wink,

And she wanted to hang out. THE NIGHT she texted me. At 11.30pm.

On a week day.

So I went. You know what happened. We had a good time.

 

So...experiment concluded.

Does it work? I don't really know, it could've been a fluke.

I'll have to try more? I feel like if I can experiment with this and get hits again and again, it'll be confirmed. 

 

PS

Minutes after I typed this. Two of my friendly friends texted me.

No, our relationship isn't built solely on sex. But it is interesting..

 

PSS

So I guess all my friendly friends just want to start texting me now huh?

Third encounter.

 

Weekly Progress updates and observations/critiques coming soon!

It's been a LONG time.

A lot has happened. I won't bother highlight the bad.

 

Anyways I see my last post was about sex.

Ironically I just met up with my special friend (Ironically we are actually very close friends). 

We had a good time. 

 

Anyways, just letting everyone know I'm still around. Perhaps I'll update a little. I have an interesting topic I'd like to chronicle on here now. 

 

Thanks Athena by the way :)

Alright. I'm back, and I have to confess this before I go to bed. 

 

I fell WAY off the wagon

Like. Way off. I've been trying to get back on and I just havent.

Yeah its my fault. There's no excuse.

Also my friend just kicked my ass about it.

The fact is that I've got an idea worth a few billion dollars. My whole act. Mind you.

And I havent acted much on it at all.  

Procrastination, balancing life aspects, having enough energy. 

So I'm back here to hold myself accountable. And I hope you can help me too, subliminal family. 

 

Sidenote is there anything I can use that will effectivley eliminate my inertia/ procrastination? Something George's made to get my ass up and running? It's be a nice subconcious supplement to get me to work even when I dont ideally want to. 

 

I've not lost everything however. I've got so much more conceptualization done for many of my endevours. But let's not be one of those talk-dont-walk losers. I'm back. And that's only because i've been burnt. Now I know what it's like to fold my arms and rest..to procrastinate and put it off..to be sub-par and mediocre. It's not fun. There's no reward. Reward is in the work. Message heard loud and clear. 

 

Youll hear much more from me again. Because this is going to be my official place of accountability starting from now. 

See you, subliminal family.

Yeah, I fell off the cliff in Feb. I had no real explanation for it either. I have started making up for that, though. 

 

Also, If you want to materialize a billion dollar idea, I'd be watching this guy. 

 

 

There's no better disciplinarian out there.

Light, my soul brother! I know the feeling. My friend told me gave me just the harsh love I needed to hear about my own procrastination and lazy habits. 

It's a little hard to be transparent about your faults when it all goes down, but I'll get my ass up and get to it. 

 

Anyways so here's my account for today.

Very successful. Somewhat. Well it was a successful start.

I have the WORST habit of 1) not getting enough sleep 2) falling asleep in the middle of the day. Which keeps me from being productive. 

It's a bad habit that I did AGAIN today. Except I got more done than I usually do. 

Still. I woke up with red eyes, a slight headache and super thirsty for water. I think my body needed a little reset. 

 

I dont care though. Today proved that I can work through it, that I've still got it. It's never left. I just need to work again. 

Solution?

Rest early. 

Jump start tomorrow. 

 

Go go go go go go.

Light, I'll watch the video and come back tomorrow!
