Brilliant… Complexity put simply on the subject of how brain pathways change

Toni Jackson

This is a very simplified, easy to understand explanation of the theory of neuroplasticity.  The basic idea is that our brains continue to change and grow as we do; and that through repeatedly focusing on a new thought or behaviour, we can change the neuro pathways in our brains.

Interesting thoughts on using your imagination to manifest your dreams.


The Art of Daydreaming
by Darryl Dapper

VisualizationfishVisualization is one of the most powerful tools at a magician’s disposal. An imaginative mind colours a grey world and throws dirt in its face to rid it of its suffocating sterility. The right idea creatively executed has the potential to alter the whole course of history for us all. That spark, with the potential to ignite a universal change, sits active in the core of every human brain. We all have the power to change the world and to affect the flow of our own destinies.

Truly great and amazing things happen when the intentions of a mindful brain are collected and creatively focused. When ambition that’s fuelled by the power of belief and distilled by discipline is cast out in a passionate fervour, the universe takes notice and responds accordingly. By surely recognising what you need and then developing the force…

Law of Attraction


Positive attracts positive

Have you ever been in a bad mood and had someone change it by being in a good mood? Our attitude affects others, whether it be positive or negative. It is as though we are “attitude generators” waiting to power those around us. The happier we get, the happier those around us are. Or, on the flip side, the more aggravated we are the more agitated people around us are. No matter which direction our attitude takes, it seems to multiply through others. On the battle fields, before a great confrontation, generals would call their men together and give speeches of encouragement. Their speeches echoed the fire that burned in their soul. As they proceeded they would get more passionate and that passion could be felt by their men. Soon every man had that fire burning in their soul. Victory was inevitable.

A negative attitude attracts negativity. People who delve…

Law of Attraction.. Join my experiment…


Welcome to my blog!

This blog is an official record of my experiences with Law of Attraction. For those who haven’t heard of it, Law of Attraction is the belief that “like attracts like” and therefore the more you focus on something, the more likely you will bring it into your life. Essentially, it boils down to “what you think about, you bring about”.

Like most of you, I was oblivious to this law, until few years back, when the popular book, “The Secret” by Ronda Byrone came into my life. Before this point, I attracted many things into my life, often positive results, but I couldn’t quite put my finger on how I attracted them into my life. You see, I have been a natural “manifester” without even realising. I knew positive thinking worked for me at some level, as I had attracted great friendships, relationship, house purchases, jobs and even money by thinking positively about them, although at those points in time, I hadn’t really contextualised it as positive thinking. I put it more down to luck! When I was at University, I had a particularly successful exam sitting, even though, I only studied selected part of the syllabus and skipped almost half of it, as I was too busy partying! I still remember a friend (who is still a friend by the way) called me a “Jammy B**tch!” for getting the questions right as most of the questions were on the topics I studied. 

I am a scientist by education (BSc Neuroscience) and an Accountant by profession, so my core skill has always been analysis and I often have difficult time explaining Law of Attraction, especially how it works for me, to my friends and family. Following on from inspiration from the “Happiness Project” by Gretchen Rubin, I have decided to undertake my own “Experiment” into the Law of Attraction. I intend to spend this year, focus on various aspects of life and using known LoA tools and techniques, as well as a bit psychology and other mind associated tools and techniques to specific attract desired results. I intend to post regularly to this blog, by setting out my thoughts and then publishing the results, as well as outlining the methods I have used, therefore hopefully a tangible way of measuring my success.

So join me on my experiment…
