Mapping How Emotions Manifest in the Body - Olga Khazan Across cultures, people feel increased activity in different parts of the body as their mental state changes. Many years ago, I was in Brussels, Belgium, spending a day interviewing with a series of prospective internships. I frantically rehearsed my resume bullet points—in English and French—as I tried to navigate my way through the unfamiliar city to make four different appointments. Just as I was mouthing sciences politiques to myself for the hundredth time on the metro, I realized that my hands and feet had begun to sweat uncontrollably. Soon, I was sliding around in my sensible, black “grown person” shoes as I dashed through the cobblestoned streets. I hadn't contracted some rare, waffle-induced glandular disorder. A new study by Finnish researchers published today in the Proceedings of the National Academies of Sciences, suggests that our emotions do indeed tend to influence our bodies in consistent ways. Let us hear your bodies talk, participants:

Google Brendan D. Murphy - The promise of energy psychology Posted on Tuesday, 3 September, 2013 | 4 comments Columnist: Brendan D. Murphy The Promise of Energy Psychology Brendan D. Energy psychology describes a collection of novel psychological interventions that "balance, restore, and enhance human functioning by stimulating the human subtle energy system," which includes the acupuncture meridian system, chakras, and nadis. In short, EP modalities use both psychological interventions and energetic interventions together.(3) The result is something far greater than the sum of the parts: EP techniques offer a uniquely powerful way to address and heal the subconscious mind from which around 95% of our thoughts and behaviour originate. EFT and TFT For psychological issues rooted deeply in intense emotion (more so than at the mental level), EFT, TFT, and Matrix Reimprinting (which developed from EFT) may be more effective more of the time than virtually any other therapies. Overall, Matrix Reimprinting Psyche-K

10 conseils pour ne pas stresser à la rentrée | Flavia Mazelin Salvi Flavia Mazelin Salvi est journaliste, et Patricia Salmon Tirard est rédactrice en chef adjointe Psychologie Magazine. Stress. Sans doute le mot le plus utilisé et le symptôme le plus répandu en ce début de XXIe siècle en Occident. Qui ignore encore qu'il vient du latin stringere (serrer, étreindre) et qu'il est une réaction de notre corps pour s'adapter à une situation nouvelle, positive ou négative ? (Lire les 10 conseils plus bas dans ce billet) Stress au travail, stress en famille, stress dans les transports et même stress en solo, quand, tout seul face à son miroir, on se dit qu'on n'est pas à la hauteur et qu'on n'y arrivera pas. Bien comprendre pour mieux combattre.

Emotion First published Mon Feb 3, 2003; substantive revision Mon Jan 21, 2013 No aspect of our mental life is more important to the quality and meaning of our existence than emotions. They are what make life worth living, or sometimes ending. So it is not surprising that most of the great classical philosophers—Plato, Aristotle, Spinoza, Descartes, Hobbes, Hume—had recognizable theories of emotion, conceived as responses to certain sorts of events of concern to a subject, triggering bodily changes and typically motivating characteristic behavior. I begin by outlining some of the ways that philosophers have conceived of the place of emotions in the topography of the mind, particularly in their relation to bodily states, to motivation, and to beliefs and desires, as well as some of the ways in which they have envisaged the relation between different emotions. 1. How do emotions fit into different conceptions of the mind? 2. 3. This variety has led to a good deal of confusion. 4.

[小惡魔的電腦教室] 3-1.認識記憶體,時脈和時序的意義 (第1頁) - 記憶體 我個人認為,「記憶體」一直是價格效能比最高的升級方案。雖然CPU會直接影響電腦的執行速度,但要讓速度明顯成長得花不少錢,通常要連主機板一起換,而換張主機板差不多就是重組半台電腦了(把主機板拆出機殼再裝一張新的進去,讓我死了吧!)。可是記憶體沒幾個月就崩盤一次,以目前的價格,投資個1000多元,多加1GB的記憶體,跑多一點軟體就會感覺有差了,保証值得,勸敗小惡魔推薦! 在電腦幾十年來的歷史裡,系統主記憶體用的規格已經換了好幾次,EDO DRAM、FP RAM、DDR SDRAM....。甚至不同的零件組裡也有不同記憶體,CPU內部的快取其實是SRAM,顯示卡上有特性迥異的GDDR。看起來超亂,但請忘了前面那堆英文吧! 記憶體的外觀 在進一步講規格之前,先來瞧瞧現在常見的DDR跳舞機....嗯,DDR記憶體,雖然說也沒什麼好看的,就是一條長長的電路板,上面裝了幾顆小小黑黑的晶片。 按這裡檢視圖片 普通記憶體的包裝盒,大多是一包兩支,上面密密麻麻寫滿數字,每個數字都有意義,因為記憶體的種類會有不同,下一篇再來解讀PC3-8500之類的數字。 按這裡檢視圖片1.散熱片:有些記憶體是針對超頻而設計,或單純只是為了美觀酷炫,所以加上散熱片。 2.記憶體顆粒:實際存放資料的記憶體晶片,上面會印生產顆粒的廠商,顆粒因晶片封裝方式不同,尺寸有大有小。 3.SPD:Serial Presence Detect,這是一個小小的唯讀記憶體,記錄記憶體的廠牌和各項參數,讓電腦可以自動抓出記憶體的各項參數值,算是記憶體的隨插即用功能。 4.防呆凹槽:記憶體有不同的種類,有些金手指數目相同,為了避免裝錯,會設一個這樣的凹槽,以凹槽的位置來做安裝的防呆,主機板上的插槽也有對應的突起,硬塞是塞不進去的。 ,再次提醒,現在電腦裝置都有防呆設計,不能很順的插入,通常就是插錯,千萬別硬塞,別當一個連防呆設計都防不了的呆子。) 5.金手指:傳輸資料的金手指,資料進出記憶體就是靠這個。 6.安裝卡榫:主機板的記憶體插槽兩旁會有固定桿,扣上就會把記憶體鎖緊,而這也是另一個防呆裝置,不同種類的記憶體,卡榫的凹槽位置會不一樣。 按這裡檢視圖片 附上一張之前用過的主機板照片,記憶體插槽中間有個突起就是對應防呆凹槽。 記憶體的用途 至於容量,雖然理論上是越大越好,不過有時受到作業系統定址的限制,你裝過多的記憶體容量就會變得毫無意義了。 時脈與頻寬

Astral Projection - How to Astral Project Excerpt from Leaving The Body: A Complete Guide to Astral Projection, D. Scott Rogo by D. Scott Rogo One of the chief barriers people learning to project face is fear. Many are afraid that they may die, or be harmed in some way as a result of their projection. Once you are aware that you cannot be harmed by projecting, you should begin Monroe's techniques, step by step. Step one: Relax the body. Step two: Enter the state bordering sleep. Step three: Deepen this state. Step Four: Enter a state of Vibration. Remove all jewelry or other items that might be touching your skin. Step five: Learn to control the vibrational state. Step six: Begin with a partial separation. Step seven: Dissociate yourself from the body. Another method is the "Rotation method" or "roll-out" technique. If, after all this, you still can't project, I recommend purchasing Leaving the Body , by R. Note from Starwitch: I've read Robert Monroe's books many times. CD set to teach you how to have OBEs.

10 Simple Things You Can Do Today That Will Make You Happier, Backed By Science Happiness is so interesting, because we all have different ideas about what it is and how to get it. It’s also no surprise that it’s the Nr.1 value for Buffer’s culture, if you see our slidedeck about it. So naturally we are obsessed with it. I would love to be happier, as I’m sure most people would, so I thought it would be interesting to find some ways to become a happier person that are actually backed up by science. 1. You might have seen some talk recently about the scientific 7 minute workout mentioned in The New York Times. Exercise has such a profound effect on our happiness and well-being that it’s actually been proven to be an effective strategy for overcoming depression. The groups were then tested six months later to assess their relapse rate. You don’t have to be depressed to gain benefit from exercise, though. A study in the Journal of Health Psychology 2 found that people who exercised felt better about their bodies, even when they saw no physical changes: 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

Unification of Science and Spirit: Chapter 6 - MIND AS A COMPLEX SYSETM Chapter 6 Among my many memories of early childhood, a few stand out with particular vigor. First and foremost, there is Neil Armstrong walking on the moon -- this was around the time of my second birthday, but I remember it as well as anything I've watched on TV since. Another glowingly vivid memory, from a couple years later, is watching my mother roll out of the hospital in a wheelchair, holding my newborn baby sister in her arms. Every day I would go over to her crib and watch the baby. I asked a lot of questions, but no one had any answers. When, as I child, I was asked "What do you want to be when you grow up?" But by the time I entered university, at age 15, I had become gradually more interested in this fuzzy, peculiar question of understanding the mind. I remembered a children's book I'd once had on "mathematical order and pattern in the real world" or something like that -- it had had a long chapter on crystals. I remember one moment in great detail, a sort of "Eureka!"

Astral Voyage - Astral Projection - Beginner's Guide Although I have provided links to other interesting Astral Projection web sites, I would like to cover several experiences that I went through as a beginner that might help you. First, what is astral projection? Astral projection is simply the transferring of the consciousness from the physical body to the astral body. We have several 'vehicles' for our consciousness, and the astral body is one of them. Now, I will outline the progress of how I learned to astral project: Desire: First is the desire. Fear: "Fear is the great barrier to human growth." Concentration: One of my personal big obstacles! Relaxation: Countless people have repeatedly stressed this and that's because it's true. Here are some things that I have personally implemented myself: knowing when is "enough" in my career. Focus 10: (aka the hypnagogic state-- see Glossary for term definition). Separation: Ok, now the interesting stuff! Rollout (this is also the technique Robert Monroe used). You get pulled back.

Patron, tu me rends malade | Stéphanie Grammond | Stéphanie Grammond Une associée qui prenait un plaisir sadique à demander à son employé de pondre un rapport urgent le vendredi à 16h30 - au diable la fin de semaine en famille - pour rejeter toutes ses recommandations dès le lundi matin. Un vieux de la vieille qui ne se gênait pas pour lancer des livres ou des crayons à la figure de ses subalternes. Un gestionnaire qui pouvait louanger son employé un jour, puis le dénigrer le lendemain devant la haute direction. De quoi vous rendre fou! Le problème de la santé mentale en milieu de travail est loin d'être bénin, a confirmé la semaine dernière la plus vaste étude jamais réalisée au Canada sur cet enjeu. Les résultats sont alarmants. Les coûts des problèmes psychologiques sont énormes: jusqu'à 50 milliards par an, selon la Commission de la santé mentale du Canada. «De 35 à 40 % des réclamations d'assurance invalidité découlent de problèmes de santé mentale», avance Virginie Gosselin, de la compagnie d'assurances Standard Life qui a parrainé l'étude.

Gifted People and their Problems Gifted People and their Problems By Francis Heylighen, PhD [page 1/2] Highly gifted people have a number of personality traits that set them apart, and that are not obviously connected to the traits of intelligence, IQ, or creativity that are most often used to define the category. Many of these traits have to do with their particularly intense feelings and emotions, others with their sometimes awkward social interactions. These traits make that these people are typically misunderstood and underestimated by peers, by society, and usually even by themselves. This is particularly true for gifted women, as they don’t fit the stereotypes that society has either of women or of gifted people (typically seen as men). The present document is a quick attempt at sketching the overall picture, summarizing the essential characteristics and the kind of problems they tend to give rise to. Summary of traits Cognition Perception/emotion Motivation/values Activity Social relations Quotes from other sources
