The Spellbound Effect

I Am going to admit, I Receive most of My Thoughts and Ideas while in the shower. Today I Thought of this concept “The Spellbound Effect”, it goes as such. Do You notice when You are intrigued with some one such as a movie star, author, business owner, Friend, etc… Some one You look up to, it is cause there is some thing in them that You either wish to possess or detest.

What I mean is, Have You noticed We are interested in what goes on in others Lives both negative and positive. For example gossip magazines, media, news, etc… What ever is Being presented, You are some what interested to know, and You end up over time following some one’s Life when ever possible.

Now, why Do We Do this? Why Do We Care what is going on in some one’s Life? I Believe it is because they are Resonating some thing You wish to possess or detest. This is Powerful, as it Can Help You Grow either way. Let’s say You Have a Mentor, some one You Can model to Be. They possess Qualities You Desire to Emanate. The Easiest way to get these Qualities is to associate Your Self with some one who Has what You Desire.

This also, works for the latter. If People around You possess lesser Qualities, things You detest, then this will propel You to search for the Qualities You wish to Have! Or You will continue to Be some one You dislike. Now, “Where are You going with this?” You may ask,  “We are all drawn to People that Aspire to Be Great!”. I Call this “The Spellbound Effect”!!!

We are Attracted to People who Achieve what they Desire! However, why are We interested in the negative things others Do? Well, that is because there is some thing within Us that detests that, and wishes to make it Better. So, instead of making things Better in Our Self, We continue to read, watch, and listen to the stuff out there that is negative, and will continue to Attract the stuff that You detest. The only way to change what You Do not Like out there, You must change what You are within! When You Do this, I Promise You will Enjoy the Experiences in Your Life!

Now, surround Your Self with Good Thoughts, and Great People! Use “The Spellbound Effect” to Your advantage!

Enjoy!

Paradigms

This word seemed to elude Me for several years until yesterday. It got Me Thinking that Paradigms, are synonymous with habits and Beliefs. The definition for a Paradigm is as follows: One that serves as a pattern or model, and A set of assumptions, concepts, values, practices that constitutes a way of viewing reality for the community that shares them, especially in an intellectual discipline.

Now it seems to Me that when One holds a Paradigm that does not serve them in any way, even though it is some thing that may Be Comfortable to them, Your Life will continue to flow in the direction of the Paradigm. Lets say You were taught or Experienced a certain fear when growing up, such as the fear of heights. Think back to when You were Free of that fear… Now Think of when that fear came to Be… If You are Having difficulty in pinpointing when this was, or how it became to Be a fear. Simply relax, and clear Your mind of Thoughts. This is easily done by focusing on Your in and out breathes. You will notice when the only Thought You are holding during this process is that of which You wish to Remember, that memory will come to You with Ease.

The point of all this is to Have You notice that every thing We Experience and Perceive filters through Our Paradigms. Another example that was Given to Me was, how is it when People speak of skin color they refer to dark skinned People as “black”, and light skinned People as “white”. When if You really notice that the dark skinned People are a dark shade of brown, and the white skinned are more of a light shade of brown. However We see what We Choose to see, and usually We see what is not Truly there, based upon Our Paradigms!

You may Be wondering, how Do I change a Paradigm that is not serving Me Well? Like I stated above, Paradigms are synonymous with habits, Simply Create a new habit! Start small, and move Your way up from there. We all Have routines, whether We Believe that or not, We all Do. Now if some one, or You interrupt a routine even slightly, most of Us tend to get un-Comfortable for a Moment until We fall back into Our groove again. It has been said that when You are un-Comfortable with some thing, that You are Doing some thing right in way of changing a Paradigm, for once You break through the un-Comfort, that new Paradigm will soon become Comfortable, and Compliment what You Desire out of Life.

I Have noted before some where that “Your Life is working Perfectly for the way You Think!” and this is completely True, whether You Like it or not. Your thoughts Create Your Reality! So I suggest Being Aware of what You are Thinking if You Desire to Experience more of what You Dream about!

Enjoy!

Simply Inspired

I remember some where I read, or heard that ‘Inspired’ is Being ‘In Spirit’. Which now to Me makes sense. The Latin Definition uses words like ‘Thunder-Struck, Stunned, Frantic…’. The English Dictionary defines it as ‘Of such surpassing brilliance or excellence as to suggest divine inspiration, aroused or guided by or as if aroused or guided by divine inspiration, and extremely accurate or apt but based on intuition rather than knowledge or logical deduction’ . This is cool as well, when You break the word a part, You get In, and Spire. In has various meanings, the one for this context is ‘To, Toward’. And Spired means ‘A top part or point that tapers upward; a pinnacle’.

Those definitions seem to all point to a Source (A God if I may). I find this rather intriguing to write the least. For example when I say “Some thing Inspired Me to Do that!”, or “You Inspire Me!”. What Do You think of when You read those statements? I personally think of some thing outside of My Self guided Me,. What? I Am unsure. The word it Self points to in side of You , and some thing out side influences.

Think back to a moment that Inspiration had happened. It is kind of weird really, and powerful. To think some thing beyond logic, aided You in some thing at that moment, which may have seemed impossible. It happens more frequent than one may think about. For instance, this website. All this came to Me out of Inspiration, Honestly! The name Umattr, all the content I write. It is rather Incredible really!

Being Inspired is a Connection to a Source that is most Valuable. When You let go of the ego momentarily, or permanently,  that is when You will find Inspiration happens most definitely! The ego is a wall between Us and what ever Created Us,. False identity is the ego, drop the ego and You will Be Your True Self! That is rather Inspiring 🙂

Enjoy!

Purpose…

You all may be wondering what inspired Me start this website, and I Am asking My Self that same question? I guess it all starts from whence I was quite young. I can remember growing up wondering why are things “the way they are!”, I had and still have this inner voice saying “question every thing!”.

I had a awesome up bringing! Living in a simple community named Daly Grove(in Millwoods, Edmonton, Alberta CANADA). My Family treated Us very well, and I can say that with integrity. My Parents provided My Brother, Sister and I with every thing We could ever desire, You may say We were a average suburban Family, what You would call a typical “middle class Family”, but to Me it was a lot, especially when I look upon it now. My Parents did the best they knew at the time, and I Love them for it, and continue to Love them 🙂

When I think about it now, I realize I Am a better Human Being as a result of My Family! No thing was dis-functional about Us, and I believe that because I have no stories to tell like molestations, beatings,  impoverish conditions and so forth(things that society will tell You that are not normal). But what is normal? Normal I believe in My definition is what majority of the masses are doing at that specific point in time. So if You really think about that definition, it means any thing goes if the majority are dong it! That I believe is pretty dis-functional! And this is where I get My inspiration from, My purpose so to speak. I Am for once in My life doing what I have always thought and felt, and that is “What I desire!”, not doing what the masses are doing.

I can remember getting My first job, it was exciting at first and then after a brief while I realized “this sucks!!!”. Then I moved on to what You would call a better job, and shortly there after I thought to My Self again “this SUCKS too!!!”. And so the cycle began, I always did what others thought and said I should do. They said “You have to get a job”, “does not matter if You like it”, “if it pays good You will learn to enjoy it!”…After a while I got My Self into what You call debt, most people go through this stage and most continuee to repeat it over and over again. I lost hope for a bit, thinking to My Self “What is this all for, what does it matter!” Eventually I whipped into shape so to speak, got another “good paying job I did not enjoy” paid off My debt and thought I felt good about My Self, but I did not. Some thing was missing, “Purpose”. I began looking into various so called “Conspiracy Theories” and started to get quite angry inside, wondering “?what the hell is this Worlds problem!”. I soon came to realize it was not what was out there that was the problem, it was in Me that was the problem. So instead of always searching and finding all the problems, I began to just look with in for all the solutions. I love this quote “Look with in, and You will find with out!” that is very profound! It means when You go with in Your Self and change how You feel about every thing, the out side World(Your experience) changes to what You desire!

I admit I have read quite a large stack of books(still continue to read), and watch various videos on all topics as well. But that was and still is just stepping stones to aid Me and ingrain My “purpose” on the stage of Life. Which brings Me to My original question “why Am I doing this website?”. “There are millions of other sites just like Yours, Matt!”, “What makes Your site so special?”, and You are right there are millions of like websites, but what makes it so special is “I Am doing what I Love doing, and that is providing un-biased information to any One who desires to better their experience in this Universe!”. You are thinking “Un-biased?” How? I have on My site stuff that is beside there so called “competitors” stuff! I believe as people We can choose what is right for Us, and not require any One to filter out any thing. I Am doing some thing most believe is impossible, because We have been raised to think in order to get a head in Life, You have to be competitive! Says who? I choose to question Our so called “Beliefs”, another cool quote I have read is “Beliefs are Perception Filters!” Therefore what You believe limits or enhances Your experiences! So You can say what You were taught throughout Your entire Life structures how You perceive things. But You are not a victim of this, You have the choice to change Your beliefs at any moment! And this My Friend is profound. This is what I Love about Life the most “The Freedom of Choice!”. Once You understand that statement, and fully believe it, Your experience here makes more sense! No thing is expected from You at all, You are what, You are! And that is as simple as it gets.

For a year now lots has happened, I was laid off, chose to not ever work for any One else again, released My fear of authority and not having money, become more accepting of others, forgave every One I thought wronged Me, forgave My Self for wronging others, I Am fully responsible for every action I do! I have done a complete 180 degree turn around from who I was! And I thank every One in My Life for being My teachers!

Enjoy what I continue to provide for You on this website, for I enjoy sharing it with You!

Sincerely~Matt Sicotte 😀
