5 Little Known Secrets To Higher Consciousness

Imagine a version of you where your emotional reactions were less reckless and more reasoned.

Picture dramatically increasing traits like focus, presence, and creativity.

We all know people who seem to have an elevated frame of mind- call it a "higher consciousness"- where they are somehow less triggered by life's struggles than the rest of us.

What are the secrets to their mindset?

You may think you know them already- good sleep, meditation, yoga, diet, exercise, etc.- and those are all important, but…

There are practices people swear by that rarely get mentioned when discussing tips to higher consciousness.

Here's 5 tips you might not know much about that can have stunning effects on your happiness, focus, clarity, and emotional self-control:

1. Binaural Beats

If you're unfamiliar with binaural beats, clear your preconceptions: this isn't some trendy music genre, and they're not "beats" in the way you're probably thinking.

In 1839, physicist Heinrich Wilhelm Dove discovered that when signals of two different frequencies are presented separately (such as one to each ear by headphone) the brain compensates for the difference by creating a 3rd "binaural" beat at 4.5 beats per second.

Research shows to be the beat frequency common in a multitude of ancient tribal music rituals, and induces a low Theta brainwave state, which in turn causes extremely therapeutic benefits.

2. Nootropics

In case you missed it, the science of mental nutrition has gotten extremely advanced in the last 5 years.

Foods, minerals, vitamins, adaptogenic herbs and nutraceuticals that can improve things like focus, memory, mental energy, and mood are being discovered, combined, and formulated into new supplements that fall into a category called "Nootropics".

These supplement formulations can support the neural pathways of your brain and help you perform at your optimal level.

There are several new companies in the space however, the "best in class" nootropic supplement is a blend called Qualia by a startup biotech company out of San Diego called Neurohacker Collective.

3. Anthropologic Travel

Everyone knows how restorative a vacation can be. But drinking margaritas under a palm tree doesn't exactly expand your consciousness in a lasting way.

To really get the most out of a trip, prioritize the anthropologic value of travel.

Schedule a trip that doesn't only immerse you in relaxation, but also immerses you in an exotic culture which thinks, communicates, and expresses differently than your own.

Forget photo-ops or tourist spots. Instead, try to deeply familiarize yourself with other ways of being by engaging with different people living very different lives.

When you experience the diversity of goals and purposes of cultures around you, many of the things which cause you stress are revealed as shallow concerns.

And many of the keys to happiness will be revealed to you in ways you've never considered.

4. The Bicameral Model

In 1976, psychologist Julian Jaynes published The Origins Of Consciousness in the Breakdown Of The Bicameral Mind.

It's a highly controversial book detailing the evolution of human consciousness.

Scholars argue over its importance and insights, but a key takeaway that many find helpful are known as the three stages of "paramount orientation".

The most basic and least evolved stage is obedience. This means blindly believing and doing what you're told by authority figures.

The next step up in evolved consciousness is being right. A lot of us struggle at this level.

This is where we get into damaging conflicts with loved ones, hurting them and our own reputations due to disagreements over ultimately petty issues.

Finally, the most evolved stage is producing desirable results.

This is where your ego is willing to concede petty conflicts (whether you were right or not) in order to keep the main goals of your life (maintaining loving relationships, large career and personal missions, etc.) on track.

Practice behavior that prioritizes the shortlist of what you hold dear in life.

5. Environmental Psychology

Everyone has experienced how mentally rejuvenating a stroll down the beach or a hike through the forest can be. But those activities are such a small percentage of your life.

The most important environmental psychology is wherever you spend the most time, meaning your home and immediate neighborhood.

Caring about the interior design of your home should matter to you whether you enjoy interior design or not.

Little things, like getting rid of clutter, soothing wall artwork, or gentle lighting, can play an enormous role in your mental wellbeing.

If you have a yard, what do you picture being there that would bring you daily peace?

If you're debating where to rent or own, consider the aesthetics of the block you live on, beyond just your home itself, because it's going to inform your mood for good or bad every time you walk out your door.

Man Buys Stranger's Groceries When Overhearing Her Tell Her Daughter They Can't Afford To Eat That Night

Kindness is within us all

A man has recently been getting attention online for his inspiring act. One night, while he was minding his own business, he was confronted with a family in need. He had two options. He could have done the same thing everyone else did in the store and let them figure it out for themselves, or he could be their hero that day and help them out within his means.

The thing is, the man didn't have much money himself, and he was working two jobs to support himself and his kid. Here's how he decided on what to do.

Meet Bear, A Man Who Works Double Shifts To Live

It was a day like most for Bear, as he had just pulled two fourteen-hour shifts in a row and needed some food, but had no energy left to make it. He writes this on a post on Facebook and explains that this actually didn't turn out to be like most days: I stopped by the grocery store to grab food for dinner and as I was checking out a woman started crying in the next checkout line."

Bear listened in on the conversation between a mother and her daughter, and it was heartbreaking.

The Little Girl Asked Her Mom Why She Was Crying

At first, it's easy to assume the mom is just having a bad day, maybe she got into a fight with her husband or is tired from looking after her kid. As he listened in, ge overheard the girl ask her mom what was wrong, as she continued to stand crying in the lane right next to hers.

"Her daughter asked her what's wrong and she all she could say was, 'we can't afford to eat tonight.''" These are the words that no parent wants to imagine ever needing to say to their child, who depends on them just to live. Yet, it is the unfortunate case for many.

Food Insecurity Is A Real Problem

Food insecurity is a problem for many families across the country. This problem has gotten even worse with the pandemic as many families who relied on their small businesses had to shut down and couldn't make do anymore.

Even then, this problem existed before the pandemic and still continues today. In fact, the U.S Department of Agriculture reports that 10.5 percent (13.8 million) of U.S. households were food insecure at some time during 2020 and this number is unchanged from 2019.

This Time It Would Be Different

For a lot of food-insecure families, they simply would have had to walk out of that grocery store empty-handed, with a kid possibly going to bed hungry that night. For this mom, kindness was in the cards, At first, another person who also overheard her gave them a few dollars towards their groceries.

But Bear knew she needed more than that. He walked over to the mom and her daughter and told them he would pay for their food and to get whatever they want. He writes on Facebook: "A person behind her gave her a couple of dollars and she bought her daughter a Kids Cuisine TV dinner. I told her to grab what she wants, I'll pay for it."

All In Divine Timing

Was Bear's presence in that mothert's life at that time and place just a coincidence? Bear doesn't think so. He explains that he never actually shops at that store but for whatever reason, he felt inclined to do so that night. He think the reason for it comes down to divine timing…

"I NEVER stop at this Walmart. I'm simply saying GOD puts you where he needs you to be WHEN he needs you to be there"

People Find Bear Inspiring

Bear's Facebook post has gotten a lot of attention as many who read it are inspired by his selfless act. For all he knows, he could have saved that family that night.

"That's my little Brother doing what moms told us to do when women and children are in need, we help them out with whatever they need. GOD put you in the right place last night. Thanks for helping a woman and her children with the food they need to eat so they don't go hungry. God's got you," a person commented.

Whether it was a divine intervention or simply the actions of a kind man, it brought good into the world and we only hope things like this continue to happen to make it a better place.
