Have a Wonderful 2016

January 2, 2016

Hello again,

2015 brought a lot of changes for me but they were mostly good ones. I created a lot of art, remodeled my kitchen – doing 80% of the work myself,  watched a lot of informative videos and read a lot of new books.

There wasn’t any new information discovered about Osteoporosis. But I wasn’t really paying a lot of attention. I’m over it and getting on with my life.

I get Susan Brown’s newsletter but it always seems to be old news to me. She’s just heard of Functional Doctors and I tried one of those out 2 years ago after reading a book about the brain. I found that it is basically a money making thing for chiropractors. I have written about it in previous posts. I spent a lot of money on very expensive tests to discover whether I was sensitive to certain foods and then found out that none of the tests were really conclusive 😉

But I am still very interested in the brain and I plan a brain upgrade this year. My plan is to spend the first three months of the year doing all kinds of new learning to upgrade my brain. I will start with Speed Reading. I already read fast from when I did a course in that years ago but I am doing it along with my granddaughter who needs some encouragement. Then we will move into Memory Enhancement. I am interested in being able to say a poem without prompts. So I got all kinds of books on memory and will try out all the tricks. Most of the tricks are very old but you have to really work with them to get them to work for you.

Every time you do something difficult; where you struggle to learn, you are creating a huge number of new synapses in your brain. Einstein did not have a bigger brain than other people, he just had more synapses. He persisted with tough problems!

Then I am including a lot of movement. My Feldenkrais training taught me about brain plasticity long before it was discovered by science. So I will do as many things as possible with my left hand and learn to juggle. Then I’ll roll on the floor a lot and do old movements in new ways. That increases brain power.

The Khan Academy says that anyone can learn anything and provides free videos on a huge number of topics so I will make my way through anything that piques my interest in my spare time 😉

I have been disillusioned with science for a long time. It is so often perverted, distorted and downright falsified by money interests. But I watched a great TED talk the other day that showed the fallacies that science is built on.  Rupert Sheldrake – The Science Delusion This video is another version of that because TED pulled their version. They are pretty invested in believing in Science 😉

And belief is everything!! What I believe in is the power of thought, the power of energy, and our universal power to change anything or change our reaction to it. Human beings are magical and marvelous and I have opened up to learning all kinds of new things from people who are excited and curious about this world. 

I wish you all new learning in this coming year so you can be the best version of yourself you can possibly be.

Here are some of my new artworks in the craft area of the new kitchen-
