The Neuroscience Revolution is Here: 5 Ways To Supercharge Your Brain With “The brain is the last and grandest biological frontier, the most complex thing we have yet discovered in our universe.

How to Get Smarter, Increase Your IQ & Become Limitless “Today, the greatest single source of wealth is between your ears. Today, wealth is contained in brainpower, not brutepower.” -Brian Tracy Reading time: 10-15 minutes Do yo ever wish you were just a bit smarter? Me too. Why? Getting good grades and holding my own in intellectual conversations was never particularly hard, but there’s always been a few people a step ahead of me. And to be honest, I was a bit jealous. But I’ve always figured there wasn’t too much I could do about it. Today, I’m going to share with you something extremely powerful, something I’ve discovered recently and haven’t shared with anyone yet: Intelligence is not a set thing. How It All Started: Watching Limitless This whole adventure started a few months ago, when I decided to watch the movie Limitless . “You know they say we can only access 20% of our brain? As I watched that movie, something switched on inside me. I decided right there & then that I had to find a way to make this happen in real-life. So I got busy.

How to Get Wiser, Increase your EQ, and Become Unstoppable Reading Time: 10-15 minutes “When I graduated from the Stanford Business School, I thought I needed to be Superhuman in order to be CEO one day. But what I now understand after 2 dozen years in a leader role is that being a great leader isn’t about being Superhuman. It’s about being a Super Human.” -Chip Conley, CEO Joie de Vivre (Voted Most Innovative CEO in the San Francisco/Bay Area in 2007) A few weeks ago, I wrote an article detailing how we can develop superhuman intelligence, and even become Limitless. 2 days after publishing the article, I was leaving Australia and headed to Indonesia for a vacation. Not only had I accomplished all I set out to do in Australia (Get my Master’s Degree/Figure out my life/Have a sweet time), but now I was free to lie on the beach, give my soon-to-be Limitless brain a break while enjoying the moment and… fantasising about the future. One day, I was doing just that. Life was great, and I didn’t have a worry in the world. Having a high IQ is one thing.

CHAKRA COLORS AND MEANINGS There are seven main energy centres (chakras) of the body. These chakras are like spirals of energy, each one relating to the others. Using the seven colours of the spectrum, Colour Therapy aims to balance and enhance our body's energy centres/chakras and also to help stimulate our body's own healing process. Colour Therapy uses colour to re-balance the Chakras that have become depleted of energy. Colour therapy can be shown to help on a physical level; however there are deeper issues around the colours on the psychological and spiritual levels. Our well being is not purely a physical issue. All life experiences have an affect upon us. The Colours VIOLET/PURPLE governs the CROWN chakra, at the top of the head. Related organ: brain Endocrine gland: pineal gland.
