Refining Your Personal Growth Palate
When you’re on a path of personal growth, it’s to be expected that you’ll eventually outgrow some lenses or tools that you used in the past, even if they were useful and effective. Your goals and interests may change, and other tools may become more useful to you. You may also integrate some practices well enough that you no longer have to think about using them as separate tools. Be careful about treating lenses as laws or beliefs, and be especially cautious to avoid wrapping them into your identity. That gets people stuck a lot. Treat lenses as tools that you can pick up and experiment with and then ...

The Lens of Attraction
The “Law of Attraction” isn’t really a law of course. It’s just a lens – a way of looking at reality and interpreting events. When you use this lens, you consider a potential relationship between your thoughts, feelings, attitudes, or vibes and the events and circumstances that occur in your life. You look at events as having a lot to do with with your inner state and not just your worldly behaviors. I’ve found this to be a useful lens myself, which is why it’s part of my toolbox, but I don’t treat it as a law of reality. It’s just one perspective to consider when ma...

How impotent man can have a baby in their bedroom using the Malpani Baby Kit
One of the problems of being infertile because of erectile dysfunction ( impotence) is that these men can ’t stop thinking of themselves as failures . They can't even do such a simple thing like making a baby in their bedroom - something which millions of men have been doing since time immemorial !The problem is compounded by the fact that their wife will often blame herself. She will feel that her husband does not find her sexually attractive, which is why he is not able to get an erection when have sex with her.This can be hard to come to terms with - specially for many young successful professional men w...

Dealing with Suicidal Tendencies? Posting on Social Media Is Not Therapy
On thisWorld Suicide Prevention Day, I wanted to write to people who hide behind the illusion of strength. They give the appearance of mental well-being by posting excellent advice, uplifting memes, and beautiful quotes, but privately they struggle with the overpowering tidal forces of suicidal depression. When that tide sweeps them away, their friends are left surprised and stunned.As many of you know, Ronnie McNutt¹ took his own life while live streaming on Facebook last month. It was traumatic and devastating to those who witnessed it. According to his friend, Ronnie was severely drunk, so it’s easy to assume...

Are You Most Loyal to Purpose or People?
Where is your greatest loyalty – to your purpose or to specific people in your life? This is an interesting character sculpting choice, isn’t it? If you remain loyal to the people in your life, your alignment with your purpose will be weaker. When you have a conflict between people and purpose, you’ll stick with the people and allow some misalignments with your purpose. For example, if your purpose is focused on personal growth, but you’re loyal to the people in your life above and beyond your purpose, you’ll stick with friends who hold you back from growing. You may get sucked into p...

Living an Adventurous Life
I read an article a while back about what makes a good life. It says that an important element of a good life is something called “psychological richness.” Here is an excerpt: According to this view, a good life is one that is interesting, varied and surprising—even if some of those surprises aren’t necessarily pleasant ones. In fact, the things that make a life psychologically rich may actually make it less happy in the ordinary sense. After all, to put it bluntly, a happy life can also be boring. Adventures, explorations and crises may be painful, but at least they’re interesting. I agree wi...

Bee Brains And Eyebrows: The Week ’s Best Psychology Links
Our weekly round-up of the best psychology coverage from elsewhere on the web You’ve probably heard of ASMR — or maybe experienced it yourself from watching videos of people doing things like whispering or rustling paper. But although such videos are incredibly popular, there have been surprisingly few studies on the phenomenon. Giulia Poerio explores what the research has revealed so far at The Conversation. The feelings of “dissociation” caused by drugs like ketamine seem to be related to slow, rhythmic firing patterns of brain cells in an area called the retrosplenial cortex. Research...

Our Ability To Perceive Musical Beat Becomes More Refined Through Childhood
By Emma Young If you were to play your favourite song right now, I imagine you’d have little difficulty clapping along with the beat. Our appreciation of beat allows us to clap, dance, march and sway in time with a piece of music — or just with each other. As the authors of a new paper published in the Journal of Experimental Psychology: General point out, these behaviours occur spontaneously across human cultures. But while moving to a beat seems effortless, it involves all kinds of perceptual processes. The team, led by Jessica E. Nave-Blodgett at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, now repor...

When Causing Harm Is Unavoidable, We Prefer To Cause More Harm For More Benefits Rather Than Less Harm For Fewer
By Matthew Warren Imagine that you’re an official faced with an unenviable decision: you must choose whether to establish a farm on existing land which can produce enough to feed 100 hungry families, or cut down an acre of rainforest to create a larger farm able to feed 500 hungry families. What choice would you make? If you chose not to cut down the rainforest, you’re in the majority. In a new paper in Psychological Science, participants tended to avoid choosing to harm the rainforest, despite the benefits it would bring.
