Subliminal Tapes To Re-Program Yourself

As promised, and for a wonderful change of pace, I wanted to offer you these FREE subliminal personal re-programming tapes in order to strengthen your self-esteem, resolve, and emotional fortitude. In these three tapes (which you can listen to either with headphones or through your computer's (or other device's) speakers, subliminal suggestions are embedded against a backdrop of gentle sound and binaural beats to maximize entrainment and retention. These tapes were not made by me, and I do not make any guarantees as to their quality or effectiveness -- but I believe that, at very least, you'll find that they make you feel better, generally speaking. And we Braintenance Neuron Knitters are always in need of that!

Simply click on each of the programs below, enjoy it, hit the "BACK" button in your browser, and return to this page. You'll likely achieve the best result by listening to each recording once in the early morning, and once before bedtime. Yep -- this could be a four- or five-day project. Maybe more.

By the way, if you'd like to download a .pdf file (for your repeated use or sharing) of this entire post with live hyperlinks to the programs, simply click on

Here are your Programs:





Enjoy them, and welcome to the Year Of The Dragon!

Keeping Those New Year's Resolutions?

Share this ARTICLE with your colleagues on LinkedIn .

We've had more than enough time to start re-evaluating those New Year's Resolutions. This might be a good time to determine which to keep, which to toss, and how to stay on course with the ones which are truly self-motivated and rooted in our own desires for self-improvement and greater happiness.

The article excerpt which follows appears courtesy of BigThink's Daily IdeaFeed, a wonderful source of information on virtually everything of interest to intelligent, thoughtful persons. There...I've just paid you a subtle, subliminal compliment! Read on, then click the "BACK" button on your browser and come back home to your new country... Cerebrainia*
*CEREBRAINIA is a cleverly-crafted geographical Lingovation devised by cranial commando Douglas E. Castle, your host, author, and occasional abuser.

Why You Won't Keep Your New Year's Resolutions
By the end of January, a third of everyone who has made a New Year's resolution
will have stopped.
By July, more than half will lapse. But knowing why could keep you on the right track.


Without going into a ridiculous wealth of detail and burdening you with the obvious, some of the principal reasons that we fail to "live up" to our New Year's resolutions are summarily listed here:

1) We psychologically frame them on "deprivation," "anticipated unpleasantness," "excessive efforting." Naturally, our subsconscious programs us for failure from the very negative beginnings of these thoughts;

2) We do not engage in any serious, repetitive positive visualization of the wonderful results we seek -- we just bemoan the effort and picture the sacrifices required to get there;

3) We are unrealistic in the goals we set, and the time frames involved in achieving them -- or worse, we don't set clear incremental goals and definitive time frames within which to achieve them;

4) We make "all or nothing at all" resolutions which set us up for immediate disappointment, discouragement, and abandonment of the effort altogether;

5) We make resolutions to please others, as opposed to making resolutions where we personally will derive a direct benefit. These "third-party focused" resolutions are entered into with more than a hint of resentment, dooming us to failure.

There will be more about this later. In fact, I'll help you to keep those New Year's resolutions (at least the ones which are founded in a legitimate, reasonable self-improvement objective) through sharing a series of relaxing and surprisingly effective subliminal self-programming tapes with you. These tapes which employ binaural beats and positively framed generic suggestions, can be listened to through your binaural headphones or directly through your speakers -- either way, you'll find them soothing and beneficial. Please stay tuned, my fellow (and lady) Brainistas!*

Don't touch that remote!

Math Puzzle - The Missing Sign: PART 2

Share this ARTICLE with your colleagues on LinkedIn .

Our challenge of several days ago was to use intellectual "brute force" (very rapid, iterative trial-and-error) to find out which arithmetic operations were being performed on the numbers in the equations which follow. Instead of using the common symbols, I had substituted the letter "n" for any operation. Let's crack the code, Oh Braintenancers.

Find the missing signs which are all represented below as the letter "n" in the following simple equations. I'll have answers for you within the next two days. You have plenty of time. Put away the crossword and Sudoku, and give this exercise a whack. Have at it, then. Answers are posted in red.

A) 9 n 3 n 3 = 30  The first n is multiplication, and the second n is addition.

B) 7 n 5 n 3 = 9  The first n is addition, and the second n is subtraction.

C) 12 n 3 n 1 = 5  The first n is division , and the second is addition.

Have fun. By the way, are you doing mathematics, arithmetic or something else. It might be time to take a run at Google or Wikipedia...

Math Puzzle: The Missing Sign

Share this ARTICLE with your colleagues on LinkedIn .

In performing simple arithmetic operations, a sign is required between two numbers to show what action is've seen the plus symbol, the minus symbol, the multiplication symbol and the division symbol.

What follows is a quick Braintenance puzzle, designed to help you make use of several of your mental abilities simultaneously. The principal ability most of us default to is a very rapid trial and error -- when this is done with extreme speed by a computer, it is termed "brute force." Yet this brute force, when exercised in Humans (most of our readers are Humans, some are likely aliens monitoring our internet activity from their home planet, as they plan to conquer us -- but let's not get distracted), improves in terms of its speed. It is like Dran-o for the Brain-o.

Find the missing signs which are all represented below as the letter "n" in the following simple equations. I'll have answers for you within the next two days. You have plenty of time. Put away the crossword and Sudoku, and give this exercise a whack. Have at it, then:

A) 9 n 3 n 3 = 30

B) 7 n 5 n 3 = 9

C) 12 n 3 n 1 = 5

Have fun. By the way, are you doing mathematics, arithmetic or something else. It might be time to take a run at Google or Wikipedia...
