Don`t panic if you haven`t. It is not certain that these experiences would be classified under “normal” anyway. I`ll confess I`ve had several strange insights and thoughts through my life, often after waking up in the morning after my eyes have fluttered from side to side in their world of dreams
After working with EMDR, insights
happen even more frequently
then before, like
a thousand blaring lightbulbs. Sometimes it`s hard to follow
my train of thought and ideas, but the most important message is that we still like each other and want to understand even the most confusing things in life. I have learnt so much from these people. For example I`ve realized that sometimes I have to draw my breath and let the ideas I present settle, or I`ll just confuse people even more. I have also tried to learn the art of grounding, and most of the time I manage to live without floating too far from the earth.
The curious people around me know I`ve been working on something important (to me) the last weeks.

True enough, I have put energy into this, but it doesn`t mean that I`ll poured over books too heavy to lift. I`ve lived my life to the fullest while letting my (surprisingly clever) brain do its magic consciously or unconsciously, requiring some practical work every now and then.
Not everyone knows, however, that I`ve actually worked for months on what will I`ll reveal as my New
Mission in Life tomorrow. I`ve
asked myself the same question countless times: Why
is life so short? But
until I figure that one out, let me continue with what I`ll learnt so

is a critical part of the human coping mechanism. Without it, we
would all wake up terrified every morning about all the ways we could
die. Instead, our minds block out our existential fears by focusing
on stresses we can handle—like getting to work on time or paying

I also have some bad news that might frustrate some: From
tomorrow I`ll password-protect this blog. Some might think “Oh
lord! I`ve been waiting for this “revelation” for WEEKS
now, and this is what I`ll get in return?”
If this described your thoughts, I do apologize. I can only assure you that we`ll all get our cherries in the end.
Of course, you can shorten the waiting time by writing an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I`ll give you the password.
I won`t say much more now; Some might even have an inkling what my new project will be (I have belief in the fearless conscious and
unconscious mind) and tomorrow you`ll know for sure. Until then, we
all make our small steps that sooner or later, might alter the future
this. It took the earth’s population thousand of years-from the early
dawn of man all the way to the early 1800s-to reach one billion
people. Then astoundingly, it took only about a hundred years to
double the population to two billion in the 1920s. After that, it
took a mere fifty years for the population to double again to four
billion in the 1970s. As you can imagine, we’re well on track to
reach eight billion very soon. Just today, the human race added
another quarter-billion people to planet Earth. A quarter million.
And this happens ever day-rain or shine. Currently every year er ‘re
adding the equivalent of the entire country of Germany.” — Dan
The man who set all this in motion with his theory
I`m not sure I believe in coincidences anymore, especially not after I saw the theme for the weeks DPChallenge. The sound of .. has been my theme, so it feels like faith that the weekly challenge is also my personal challenge in the years to come.
