The 3 Nesses

  1. 1. the 3 “… ness es” aware ness conscious ness mindful ness
  2. 2. the 3 “… ness es” aware ness It is important to understand that we do not perceive with our senses. We perceive through the interpretation of the signals by our brain! Quantum Physics, the study of sub atomic particles that form all matter has proved that nothing is solid and everything is energy, vibrating at different frequencies.
  3. 3. the 3 “… ness es” aware ness One of the most amazing misconceptions is the assumption that because these frequency waves engage our five senses, therefore it is our senses that actually experience the reality around us.
  4. 4. the 3 “… ness es” aware ness <ul><li>In respect to the sight sense, </li></ul><ul><li>science is concluding today </li></ul><ul><li>that all frequencies enter through the lens of the eyes </li></ul><ul><li>and are decoded by the brain. </li></ul><ul><li>So why does reality need decoding? </li></ul><ul><li>Isn't reality there and we should simply sense it as it really is. </li></ul>
  5. 5. the 3 “… ness es” aware ness When we take in data preconceptions - we are sensing ; when we focus on particular sensations and categorize them according to our memory system (selecting/filtering), we are perceiving ; and when we draw conclusions about their patterns and meaning, we are thinking . For example : you sense a ball coming straight for your face, the sensing goes from the eyes to the brain, your brain perceives this message and turns it into a thought. Therefore you are observing this and your brain is organizing.
  6. 6. aware ness the 3 “… ness es” 2000 bits per second sensing perceiving / actual aware ness 400 billion bits of information per second (Dr Joe Dispenza - What the Bleep Do We Know? selecting/filtering ?
  7. 7. the 3 “… ness es” aware ness <ul><li>How in tune are we </li></ul><ul><li>to our bodies, family, business and the environment? </li></ul><ul><li>If we become more perceptive, </li></ul><ul><li>are we enabling ourselves to make more informed decisions? </li></ul><ul><li>How much </li></ul><ul><li>healthier, responsible and more successful </li></ul><ul><li>can we be </li></ul><ul><li>by making different choices like </li></ul><ul><li>what job or business to undertake, </li></ul><ul><li>who we associate with </li></ul><ul><li>and what we allow to occupy our time? </li></ul>
  8. 8. aware ness the 3 “… ness es” The shocking news is: We use less than 1% of our true mental potential… The good news is: … we can increase the percentage we use. (Dr Jill Ammon-Wexler - Pioneer Brain/Mind Research; Therefore, if we increase what we know and our mental power, then - Dr Ammon-Wexler suggests - we will see more!
  9. 9. aware ness the 3 “… ness es” Expanding Perception or coming back to our senses Anything we want to understand or experience means we need to develop the capacity to perceive it. Holding our attention on any thing we want to experience with conviction and acceptance is the key. Supporting exercises are – for example the body scan or guided me ditations. These are designed to evolver our ability to concentrate and to expand our consciousness.
  10. 10. conscious ness the 3 “… ness es” “ No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.” Albert Einstein “ Only when your consciousness is totally in the moment you are in you can receive whatever gift, lesson, or delight that moment has to offer.” Barbara De Angelis “ It is the responsibility of leadership to provide opportunity, and the responsibility of individuals to contribute.” William Pollard
  11. 11. conscious ness the 3 “… ness es” To reach your full potential, you need to take responsibility for your actions in mindful ways... This requires that you consciously become the cause of the results that you want. Refuse to behave like a victim or to wait for someone to save you from your problems…
  12. 12. conscious ness the 3 “… ness es” You have a choice! you can pay attention and be fully present when you are making critical decisions, such as: working on a project, reading your performance review or deciding whether to have another drink. Or you can be physically present but mentally absent during these activities. Either way, you are responsible for your level of consciousness you bring to any occasion and you are responsible for the results. Dr. Nathaniel Branden
  13. 13. mindful ness the 3 “… ness es” The range of what we think and do is limited by what we fail to notice. And because we fail to notice that we fail to notice there is little we can do to change until we notice how failing to notice shapes our thoughts and deeds. R.D. Laing
  14. 14. mindful ness the 3 “… ness es” I never came upon any of my discoveries through the process of rational thinking. Albert Einstein Nothing is particularly hard if you divide it into small jobs. Henry Ford Mindfulness is the practice whereby a person is intentionally aware of his or her thoughts and actions in the present moment, non-judgmentally. Mindfulness is applied to both bodily actions and the mind’s own thoughts and feelings. Wikipedia, the free encyclopaedia
  15. 15. mindful ness the 3 “… ness es” Some people seem to be born happy. Some seem born to be great leaders. How much of this is down to how the brain is wired and how much of it can be changed?
