    #2 that is great @🐝 Fatima Williams I had a message from @Graham Williams awhile back to say after reading the book he now wakes, stays in bed and sense his breathing, his body on the sheets, the temperature around him and basically senses life through his body before getting up in the morning. He said, he does not know how but he now has ease during the day. simple practices such as this that bring us back into living our life through our body and not just in a world of abstract ideas are grounding and freeing. Create new habits that work for you.

    Thank you for sharing how it worked for you. I do appreciate it.

    As i said when speaking to the group that caused this blog to be written, Personal Brand Development is the hardest to provide instructions for because we change as we age and as we work our way up the ladder in the organization or our company grows. These questions are so powerful because they get at our essence first then translate those key elements communicating it in the language of those that tell us what our brand is. Yes, holding it open is a good idea. I'm thinking of putting the exercise in my year-end have to list!

    Leadership ought to galvanise/electrify the endeavour while Management (magnetism) ought to bring the work resources together and provide the (right) direction. One is Momentum while the other is Direction perhaps, dear Ali? Only when the goals of both match, there is harmony, synergy and success.

    Leadership and management are the heart and lungs of an organization - the balance between flow and absorption. We tend to relate heart to mind because we mistakenly relate emotion to reason. All of this emotion and reason operates first in the brain.

    If anything what other structure in our body resembles the brain. It is neither the heart or the lungs, but our stomach. The brain-gut relationship is only beginning to be fathomed and in organization life it is no different to the strategy-execution relationship.

    Why do more eating on a daily basis than we engage in loving, but we base our society on many mythologies, that maybe our metaphors are misaligned. Should we create new patterns of association and explore accordingly or maintain the cultural beliefs that our ancestors imparted to us>?

    If we see things in their traditional way - all of this has been thoroughly engaged down the ages, and is it worth dredging up the known when leadership is about the unknown and learning is either a refresh of existing knowledge or cultivation of new. The organizational body does have a certain similarity to the human body, so long as we notice that relationship and actively work it.

    I read somewhere that what we perceive as time (past, present and future) are layers that is happening at the same moment. Our mind splits them , because belief (on time) and because our memory "erases/turn off" when we go to sleep and come back on when we wake up, so we think "one day passed", if that is so (everything is happening a big now) and indeed there is not past, present or future, you and your father actually never separated or will separate. Think of time on a vertical column term not a horizontally flat line. @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher

    #21 I'm glad to know someone else views the world/universe on a much broader level too. I just felt a sense of calm after reading, "but you are really never separated or constrain by time/location." Maybe that's why some of us do sense when a loved one that left our physical plane is near. Ha, I laughed when I read your comment about being a fortune teller.

    #18 I've often pondered the idea of the third eye too @Flavio πŸ‡―πŸ‡΅ Souza 🐝. Have you ever had a dream and woke feeling as though it wasn't a dream but you were in another reality? Ok, people are going to think I'm weird when they read this but I've had a few that I know were not dreams. My dad and I met on a sidewalk in front of my townhome when I was 19. He died 9 years before this. We were standing about 6 ft apart from each other and it was a beautiful sunny day. The colors were vibrant, like nothing I had seen on earth. He spoke without his mouth opening and vice versa. I understood him and he understood me. As I tried to reach him to hug him, he told me it wasn't my time yet and I 'woke up.' I've only remembered 2 dreams vividly and they were with people who've left. I do believe in a 3D universe and that energy we aren't in touch with is a sense that is possibly developed higher once we leave our physical bodies. Although, I've always been really intuitive. What you said makes total sense to me.

    regarding the color question (I forgot to talk about it) I think the primary colors are much more than we can see today (because our eyes functions are limited) , so again, because we see or do not see a particular color , it does not mean that is the correct or not the correct, it is just limitation. #17

    18/02/2017 #18 Flavio πŸ‡―πŸ‡΅ Souza 🐝
    @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher good questions there, I do believe like you that senses would be more highly developed if we were without them, I also think that a sense is not physically limited to one specific organ , for example, I do think without eyes (as example) we can still see (that is why there is something called "a third eye") , so if we believe , that eyes (for example) are the only organ responsible for vision , then they will be. It is all about our believes (thought limitations) and that lock us down to discover other paths, Let's take a look in a theory that says that we are basically pure energy beings living in a 3D world (that is also energy (atoms and etc..), it does not really matter eyes (because it is all energy) , so when we think like that the definition of each organ does not make sense anymore as all is just energy, my five cents. #17

    18/02/2017 #17 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher
    I'm glad this popped back up on the radar @Flavio πŸ‡―πŸ‡΅ Souza 🐝, I like how you think, I mean question! My theory, never become a blind follower and always question what's around you, your own motives, others motives (no one is pure) there are good people, not so nice people and evil people. I often question whether there are parallel universes in which we are living a different life, it doesn't mean that's so but my mind goes there. I forgot to touch on the subject of language that you brought up, I think that along with other senses would be more highly developed if we were without them. For example, people who were blind from birth (think Stevie Wonder), were able to tap into their higher senses and share their gift with the world. Here's a silly question I've often pondered: Because someone told me "this is blue," am I seeing the same color they are just because we can all (unless blind or color blind) point out colors when asked? So many questions without answers. Never stop second guessing oneself, it can lead to revelations and sometimes more questions ;-)

    All of existence exists in a state of change and there are no constants expect the constant of change.To resist change is to resist the nature of existence itself.

    Quote Investigator thinks it has identified the original source to a 1957 Harpers Magazine article

    Apart from the aside that this is the decade of fake news, alternative facts and personal branding, getting back to the actual quote at hand and the matter of change, and my baseline begins with the reality is change and uncertainty are the constants, and the search for certainty is the ever-present motivation that preoccupies HR departments to hire change consultants. I personally prefer to call myself an oxymoron consultant.

    Alternatively our bodies were built for certainty and unleash all sorts of chemical agents when we are stressed and our minds seek the certainty of patterns, which leads to all sorts of fallacies and bias and such stuff, but we do have one area of our brain that is the bridge between dealing with uncertainty and our biological alarm clock of certainty (no not fight or flight) but our prefrontal cortex. That is the part of our brain that can advise the signals from the rest of our brain that we do what Douglas N. Adams offered we can do, which is

    Great post @Miguel LΓ³pez de la Oliva. A topic close to my heart. From my perspective, we are sensory beings and as such we form meaning from our experiences. It is our meaning, therefore our reality. The poet Alfred North Whitehead said: "Nature gets credit which in truth should be reserved for ourselves, the rose for its scent, the nightingale for his song, and the sun for its radiance. The poets are entirely mistaken. They should address their lyrics to themselves and should turn them into odes of self-congratulations on the excellence of the human mind. Nature is a dull affair, soundless, scentless, colorless, merely the hurrying of material, endlessly, meaninglessly." This process of how we form our "reality" is what needs to be clearly understood. Fear, for example, doesn't form our reality, it's our response to fear that does that. Everything we sense is information. It is what we choose to do with that information that forms our reality. You're right, we are the creator of our reality. But because we are individuals who depend on community to survive, our challenge is to form that reality which is connected or attached to a common reality. Awareness is the key. If you're "smart" about it, you can "have your cake and eat it too". You can be the individual you want when you find the community in which to express that individuality.

    #8 It's true, you have to recognize it. Sometimes it's hard to admit because it makes a person feel weak or that others will view them as weak if they try to ignore it. Fears just don't go away on their own :)

    Thanks for tagging me Donna Luisa! @Miguel LΓ³pez de la Oliva, this was an excellent topic. I watched this video before and he just makes so much sense. I think it's great to recognize what may be holding you back or your fears (especially if they are extreme) earlier in life hence, better chance at over-coming them in the short term. I'm at an age where I finally had to seek help for some extreme stuff that my brain programmed and stored wrong. I'm currently working hard with my therapist. My sessions began with CBT (Cognitive behavioral therapy) and progressed to EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing). I will have my 3 session this week. What is EMDR [ condensed]- "The EMDR therapy uses bilateral stimulation, right/left eye movement, or tactile stimulation, which repeatedly activates the opposite sides of the brain, releasing emotional experiences that are "trapped" in the nervous system. This assists the neurophysiological system, the basis of the mind/body connection, to free itself of blockages and reconnect itself." http://www.psychotherapist.net/emdr-faq.html This is one of the few newer therapies recognized and insurance will pay for. I don't want others to view me as a person with fears and anxiety who is unable to function, my hope is they see me as a person whose had a set back in life that caught up with her and she's taking the right steps to become more functional than she could have imagined. We all have our baggage but the brain is a versatile organ that is able to use other parts of the brain for processing information we once perceived as horrible.

    What I teach as a Shaman is similar yet different to this.

    It is a shared reality created by all ones and all ones share the responsibility for the reality shared by all ones.

    We create this reality for each other as much as we create it for ourselves and when you begin to do as is suggested in this buzz by holding yourself accountable for every thought and word you realize that at times for us to have means others must be made to have not.

    Choose wisely in deciding your desires and know for everything you have and want their is a price that others in the shared reality may have to pay for you to have it your way.

    We really do create our own reality, and believe in it as you said above. It is the power we have locked into all of us, this ability to control the outcomes of our engaged lives, if we dare to believe. I think what has me most intrigued by your post are your words on fear. Indeed it is the potential and the possibility of something terrible which is imminent that gives fear its power over us.

    About LinkedIn, it's like one of my blog posts on here said, I want to see professional business interaction on LinkedIn. I don't want to see bullying, harassing, or you stole my trademark etc etc (which I just saw and was appalled at the initial rude complaint from a CEO, who was wrong by the way) If you have a trademark issue with someone, keep it private. Being online does not give you permission to be a jerk! And if you act like that at your place of work, then you aren't a true leader o professional. I expect that kind of stuff on Twitter and Facebook, even though I don't like it or support that type of interaction. We all talk about branding yourself, and I think those rude people have branded themselves in a negative way. Hope they weren't looking for clients or jobs. Right now, that's my biggest complaint about LinkedIn. I get so much out of reading articles there and making connections that I will continue at this time to use LinkedIn. I'm still trying to get the right words to describe beBee and what it means to me. Someday soon.

    Yes, I have seen those very posts. Many of them have become hyperbolic in nature. But, as I mentioned in my comment, I see a lot of LinkedIn bashing on here that isn't wholly supported by facts. I like seeing the two networks compete against each other, but over-the-top vitriol is not needed.

    The new layout has issues - no doubt about it. I have expressed some frustrations of my own over both the UI and UX. I have also made it a point to draft an email to express my concerns, and make some recommendations. I've experienced the same throttling of posts/updates on Facebook (both on Pages and my personal account); distribution is an issue on most platforms (though I have nobody I can reach out to for that).

    I actually think LinkedIn has teams working on the issues its users are experiencing. I don't think they want angry users anymore than users want to be angry with the network. I've seen a plethora of postings about how LinkedIn experts are experiencing difficulty because their clients may not have the new version. Additionally, if functionality isn't working as it should, it makes it hard to give any consulting - neither of which is good if your business is in marketing or consulting.#29

    @Mike Rana: to your point, I actually see more LinkedIn bashing on LinkedIn than any where else. Have you been following some of the threads over there? They contain 1000's of negative comments (some factual some not) regarding the new layout. While I try to avoid bashing them, I can understand the user frustration. I spent several years building my following to 36k with a commitment from LinkedIn to distribute my posts to 100% of my network. Then, they changed the rules of the game. Now, I dont know if my posts reach even 15% of my network.

    I totally agree with what Jim said, if you are a beBee brand ambassador, more is expected of you because you are representing a brand. However, I am and always will be against any type of censorship in any way, shape or form. (unless it has to do with small children) That said, I suppose if something bothers you on your own string or post, by all means, delete and unfollow if necessary.

    Where is the link to the "Report" guidelines? I am not an Ambassador, specifically because I don't nor won't filter my content. And an F-bomb is more than appropriate in my writing on several occassions - but if need be, I can open a can of Russian swear words that will make F*ck blush. If you believe that censorship and hiding behind the report button is "engagement" then unfollow me indeed, early - often - and twice on Holidays. Both the Nazis and Communists loved and endorsed censorxhip - you paint yourself in their company by deleting my content. (You with passive aggressive finger on the Report button know who you are)
