Kudos til Kristin

Ikke ofte sosialister fortjener ros, desto viktigere å gi dem en klapp på ryggen når de forsøker å gjøre noe lurt. Marion skriver at Kristin Halvorsen blogger igjen. Etter at den virtuelle virkeligheten innhentet henne ved første forsøk (jeg er partileder, jeg har ikke tid til å blogge), så finner hun nå bedre tid som partileder OG finansminister. Var det utfordringen fra Lille Blå som tok motet fra henne tro? Nok om det.

Det finnes sikkert noen som synes det er opportunt å bitche om at man bruker departementets (skattebetalernes) ressurser på blogging, men VamPus er ikke en av disse. Det er lite sannsynlig at Kristin både skriver og leser sin egen blogg, men det viktigste er at de politiske miljøene forsøker å komme i dialog med folk flest - og at innspill og kommentarer blir gjennomgått og evaluert. Noe av kraften bak blogging er jo nettopp tilgang på ekspertise som ellers blir forbigått. I dette tilfellet er det ikke bloggeren (Kristin Halvorsen m/rådgivere), men hos dem hun inviterer til å kommentere. Kudos til Kristin for dette.

Skal det komme noen fornuftige innspill her så oppfordrer VamPus herved venner og kjente til å bidra! Sjekk også høring og spørreundersøkelse i høyre hjørne.

Jeg har bidratt :) Bidraget kan lett ommsummeres i to søte små ord; "Sterkt uenig".

Helge Samuelsen sa...

Kudos til VamPus for å informere om et godt tiltak!

kristin sa...

Jeg håper ikke dette betyr at jeg blir Kristin S. Jeg var først på bloggingen, hun kom etter. Finnes det ikke en bloggergrunnlov mot å stjele andres gode navn og rykte på denne måten?

RennyBA sa...

Først en takk for at du stakk innom i dag - alltid kjekt å se en blogger live!
Ellers er jeg enig i at Kristin H. fortjener ros for sitt gjennopplivingsforsøk. Blogging er jo en utmerket og demokratisk kommunikasjonsform som også politikere burde benytte mer og bedre - hvis de har tid da, og tør og se kommentarene klistret opp på nettleser'n :-)

Simon sa...

Det store hinderet er naturlligvis den manglende dannelsen på de fleste kommentarene. Dersom en topp(?)politiker får en masse søplekommentarer, vil verdien falle. Det er dog ganske vanskelig å formulere hva jeg mener om mye av det Kristin H. har fore på en parlametarisk akseptabel form ...

VamPus sa...

Kristin; men på en annen side var Halvorsen først på bærtur, så jeg tror dere får krangle om det. Bitchfight - yeah ;-D

Martin Sol sa...

For min del ser jeg på det som en stor fordel at økonomene og juristene i Finansdepartementet får mest mulig tid for seg selv:)

Simon sa...

Min første kommentar var visst egnet til misforståelse. Jeg er ikke uenig med Vampus, med "Sterkt uenig" var det svaralternativet som passet best i Kristins lille spørreundersøkelse.

jetjubb sa...

Det er lite dårlig gjort å skryte av Kristin på den måten. Skal det være forskjell på rødt og blått, er det kun rå harselering som gjelder. Ganske meningsløst å gi lille Blå æren for dette. Griseflaks for han, er et bedre uttrykk. At medarbeiderene til Kristin har sett verdien av en blogg, er greit nok. At VamPus med flere, har opphøyet meningsutveksling på bloggen til å være redningen for mangfoldet, er å dra strikken for langt.

Vi ønsker Kristin og hennes stab, lykke til med neste innslag på bloggen.

Steinbukken sa...

Dette er bra, men jeg får da inderlig håpe at hun skriver innleggene selv? Hvis ikke er det jo å føre folk bak lyset. Jeg velger å tro at hun tar seg tid til å skrive og lese på denne bloggen selv, siden det er dette det annonseres som, og da er det et bra tiltak. At politikerne føres nærmere folket og mottar og responderer på signaler direkte vil alltid være positivt. Så jeg syns dette i så fall er positiv bruk av skattepenger! (Ikke mye jeg kan si det om.)

Enig med Simon i at kvaliteten på kommentarene er avgjørende. Hvis det blir en masse søppel tviler jeg på at Kristin Halvorsen like lite som alle andre gidder å lese og svare på det.

Visualization is a tool that has been used for thousands of years by initiates of all the metaphysical schools. Today, it is incorporated into top athlete's daily routines and is used in business affairs frequently. It's use is wide-spread among highly successful people, either consciously or unconsciously, aware of its create power. So if it has stood the test of time and is still being used by high achievers we must come to the conclusion that it works! But has it ever worked for you?

If you answered 'yes' to the above question then you know how powerful this technique can be. If, on the other hand, you gave the more likely answer 'no' then take heart for I am about to reveal to you a sure fire way of reaching your objectives through this mostly misunderstood art.

The trouble with visualization is simple - its in its name!

When studying and contemplating the art of visualization most people have the impression that they must create visual images and make them real or life-like. Many people, in fact the majority, find this almost impossible to do. Even if they can formulate a solid picture of their objective they find it extremely difficult to sustain the image for any length of time. Either the image fades, changes or other intruding thoughts intervene.

This type of visualization is almost impossible to sustain and luckily it is not at all necessary. Why? Because it is in the subconscious mind that your visualization needs to be placed and there is good news. The subconscious mind does not know the difference between an imaginary event and a real one. Your visual image only needs to be a strong visually as any other imagined event. However, that is only half the story.

If all you had to do was just imagine stuff and your world automatically changed to reflect your imaginings this world would be full of chaos (not to mention all those creepy crawly bug-eyed monsters!). Therefore, there are a few more steps to complete before the visualization is passed to the subconscious for manifestation.

Let's try a little experiment. Remember a scene from your past that has a lot of good feelings around it. Any good memory will do, like the first time you heard the words "I love you" from your partner, an amazingly spectacular sunset, a great holiday event or your last birthday. Pick one and remember it. How clear is the image? Can you remember any sounds? What way did you feel? Is there any sense of touch, taste or smell? Identify how your memory works. Is it mostly visual, auditory, kinaesthetic or of a feeling nature?

Now we are going to create an imagined event in our lives that has the same strength and potency as that image. So relax and let's go.

Imagine something that you do everyday, something that you did yesterday, today and will do tomorrow. Let us take the example of waking up tomorrow morning. Don't try to add or take anything away, just think about it and analyse the scene. Is it dark or light? Are you lying next to someone in bed? Do you still feel tired? Has the alarm clock sounded? Are you irritable that you have to get up or full of joy at the dawn of a new day?

You will find that the imagined event is very similar to the memory with probably one key difference - your point of perspective. Is the memory behind you and the future event in front of you? Is one to the left and one to the right? Maybe they are both in front of you or the future seems to move in a clockwise direction. Whatever the perspective the thing to notice is that they are very similar in appearance.

Now imagine doing your future event a week from now, then a month from now, then six months from now. Where are those images placed? Are they moving further away, going clockwise, from left to right? This is your time-line and using it is important in visualization as you will see later.

Ok, let's imagine something that is very unlikely to happen and see where it differs from the last image.

Imagine you are sitting somewhere familiar which is extremely comfortable and relaxing to you. Now imagine that a person you know well comes up to where you are and says "hello". Imagine them telling you that they want to show you a new trick. All of a sudden they have three juggling balls. They throw them in the air and begin to juggle with ease. Then they begin to whistle one of your favourite tunes. You suddenly realize that there is a strong smell of flowers in the room and notice a vase of them just behind the juggler. Imagine laughing loudly at the scene and feeling joyful at the experience. Then the person juggling leans forward stands on leg and puts the other leg outstretched behind them. All the while still juggling and whistling. Then they begin to hop on their leg as a small bird flies over to perch on their head. Once you have the imagined event and stayed with it a few moments just let it fade.

Ok open your eyes. What was the difference between the two images? Can you spot any? Did you use more, less or roughly the same senses in your fantasy event as you did in the future one? Did you see them from different angles? Was the picture bigger in one than the other? Was the sound clearer, the feelings more acute or the smell stronger? Take some time and go back to each scene in your mind. How does the future event differ from the fantasy one? Are you looking at both from a different vantage point? Do you see yourself in the image of one but not the other? Analyse the scenes and see where they differ.

Have you identified how the future event differs from the fantasy one? If you have then its time to make visualization work for you! Take a goal that you have been working on or would like to achieve. Nothing too far-fetched at this point please! Pick something that is possible but at the moment seems a little impractical. Once you have it form a mental image of what it would be like to have, be or do that thing or be in that experience. Remember to form it the same way you do a memory. Give it the same strength visually, in sound, feeling, taste and touch - use your mind in its natural state. All you have to do is imagine the scene.

Ok how does it differ from the scene of waking in the morning? Can you identify the differences in perspective, sound, taste, touch, feelings and what you hear?

Now there will be one other key thing that differs in the images- it is very simple but often overlooked. You know that the future event is going to happen! This is reflected in the way we experience the image. So what we are going to do is fool your subconscious mind into thinking your goal is definitely going to happen by manipulating your goal image!

Once you know what the differences are in each image begin to change the goal image so that it is seen the same way as the future event in your imagination. Place the visualized scene in exactly the same position with the same perspective as your future event.

Place it in the correct position on your time-line. You may already begin to feel that the goal is more possible. Visualise in this way everyday and you will condition your subconscious mind to manifest the experiences necessary to make your goal attainment certain.

One more thing to remember: During the day think about your goal often. This reinforces the visualization and will begin to dispel doubt from your mind. lucid dream

What are your 50,000 thoughts a day creating?
Our thoughts create our reality. This is a simple truth known by all people involved on the spiritual path. It is one of the most taught universal principles in the personal development field. Yet it is one of the most misunderstood!
People practice visualisation, affirmations, they use hypnosis, subliminal programming or countless other tools to transform their lives. However they fail to recognise one key area in their lives that hinder these wonderful techniques from being effective.
They sit day after day visualising their perfect scene and yet nothing happens. Why? They have followed all the instructions to the letter! They have chanted and imagined! They have formed a colourful, vibrant scene in their minds and affirmed that this is their reality. Then all of a sudden things get worse! What is going on?
Would you like to know the secret? Would you like to know why these people get no results? Would you like to hear one powerful statement that explains everything?
Yes?
Good. I will tell you why these people get no results or even opposite results to those they are aiming for -simply because of the following truth. Consciously controlled thoughts such as visualisations do not materialise - ALL thoughts materialise!!!
Most people believe that if they visualise for 10 minutes a day their lives will magically transform. This is not the case. You must change your core thinking. You think approx. 50,000 thoughts a day. How many of those thoughts are working against your ten minute visualisation?
You can control the thoughts that enter your mind by changing the way you view the world. You can decide which thoughts you give energy to and which thoughts you discard.
The thoughts that you follow and give energy to become more dominant than the thoughts you discard. Your subconscious mind records these as your dominant picture on the issue at hand. You then move towards this picture because your subconscious mind starts making your outside world reflect the picture that you have stored internally.
Your mind should be on whatever you want. The picture you need to have is a positive vision of you already having achieved your goal. To realise this vision you need to focus and concentrate. Remember thoughts are real, they create your reality.
Let's say you have been visualising a new house. You spend your ten minutes in meditation picturing yourself living in your dream home. You finish your session and get up feeling positive that you will achieve your goal. Then during the day you get a heating bill through the post and exclaim "Oh no look how expensive this is I cannot afford to heat this house". Where is your focus in the present moment? What are you affirming? You are telling your subconscious mind that you cannot deal with what you have. You are affirming that your life is not how you want it to be. If you knew without doubt that within a week you would be moving to your new home would you honestly be worried about a heating bill? Perhaps other doubts creep in like "I should be happy with what I have", or "I will never get this house looking the way I want it" and so on and so on.
These thoughts that are not aligned with your goal. You are not giving complete attention to what you want. Whilst you are dealing with these other lines of thought your attention is not on your goal.
If you are aware of your thoughts you will suddenly realise that you have spent much more energy on counter productive thoughts than on creating a dominant picture of the goal you want.
Point your focus in the direction of you're the life you want. Think about what you want NOT what you don't want. It's that simple.
Your focus determines your reality. Change your focus and you change your life. lucid dreaming
