Creativity

Often the only difference between creative and uncreative people is self-perception. Creative people see themselves as creative and give themselves the freedom to create. Uncreative people do not think about creativity and do not give themselves the opportunity to create anything new.

 It is often in response to spiritual turmoil and spiritual awakening that we begin meaningful journeys as creators.

Can we teach children to be creative? Or, are they born creative? Does creativity occur only in special individuals like Edison, Einstein, Mozart, Picasso or is it a normative process and available to every human being?" These are some of the questions asked most frequently by teachers.
In the past, the general belief was that the creativity could not be taught. This raised a great deal of controversy. The current view, however, holds that potentials can be fulfilled and maximized.

Collective Unconscious

In psychology, it was Carl Jung who used the term “collective unconscious”. This is to refer to that part of a person's unconscious which is common to all human beings. This is different from personal unconscious, which is unique to each individual. It is a shared pool of memories, ideas, modes of thought, and so on of a society or community at large.
According to the Jung, Collective Unconscious comes from the life experience of one's ancestors, indeed from the entire human race. It exists beside the personal unconscious, which contains the material of individual experience, and may be regarded as a huge reservoir of ancient wisdom.
According to Jung the collective unconscious contains archetypes, which are forms or symbols that are manifested by all people in all cultures. 
Perhaps Jung hoped that this might be the key to the body-mind dichotomy, providing the medium whereby psychology could truly become a study of the mind body system as an integrated unit. The concept of collective unconscious seems to be an insertion of spirituality in the psychology. It shows that the spirits with a large part of commonality among all are encased in separate physical bodies. It is like group of islands scattered in the sea we appear as distinct individuals, but beneath the surface we are all connected.

Learned Ones are Full of Cognitive Dissonance

People start learning right from their childhood. They form concepts and then arrange those concepts; then store those concepts and then when called upon by the circumstances use those concepts. This processing of information and concepts is called cognition in Psychology. Such people who can make so many users of the Cognitive information and the concepts of cognition are called learned ones when they cross a minimum level of storage of such Cognitive informations.

When a child is born he has no concepts. Experience of The child which increases with his age teaches him more and more. At the time of birth the child has no name, religion or other particulars. After his birth all these adjectives are given to him. He is given a name. He is told about his religion. He is told about his parentage and other adjectives. All this information is injected into him. He is made to believe that this external information constitutes an integral part of his existence.

Understanding a Reptilian Mind

First he began to have thoughts about harming his own beloved cat. Different methods of killing and maiming the cat went through his mind including flushing it down the toilet and breaking its legs and mutilating it.

At first he began having fantasies about clawing his girlfriend during sex. He said he actually felt as if HE HAD CLAWS. He would fantasize about slashing women with "his" own claws or with broken glass. Later he imagined and thought constantly about harming and killing women in horrible ways.

He said he would find himself in a dreamscape scenario where he was just about to engage in sexual intercourse with what he perceived to be a human female,

While he and his girlfriend were trying to work through his problem, he began to have sadistic thoughts and mental imagery both in the dreamscape as well as in waking consciousness. As time went by these thoughts became more and more sadistic. He became consumed with the desire to bite, claw and kill his girlfriend during the sex act.

It is important to understand that biting, clawing, kidnapping, restraining, ritualistic sex torture and murder are behaviors which reptilians and reptilian controlled serial sex offenders mentally confuse with what we call SEX. To them all of these heinous crimes are part and parcel of sexual activity.

Emotional Intelligence, a Passionate Aspect

Nature of Emotion

The word emotion is derived from the Latin word emover which means the spirit that moves us. This energy is the transmitter and recorder of all feeling, thoughts and actions. It determines our aspirations and tendencies, beliefs and commitments. In other words, emotions are the streams of energy that run within us. Emotions activate our lives, shape our perceptions and regulate behaviors. A conglomeration of all this then emanates outwardly and influences others. Basically these are your emotions which interact with others and influence them.

Immobilizing depression, overwhelming anxiety, raging anger, manic behavior - these are all pathological consequences of suppressed and tightly controlled emotions. Hence, emotions are the results of physiological stimuli and subjective-cognitive responses.

Your emotions are broader than your minds. They are the sources of energy, experience, deep understanding and deep relationship in your lives. Emotions make up and give shapes to your mind as well as the entire personality pattern.

Every emotion is based upon some cognition. These emotions, in turn, influence the thoughts. Emotions and thoughts are the basic attributes. In the human beings emotions and thoughts are inseparably interwoven. They even influence each other. For example persons in a good mood are able to process information effectively but they are less motivated to do so when in a neutral mood. When emotions are guided constructively, they enhance intellectual performance.

This is a guiding formula in the field of Emotional Intelligence.

Intelligence is no longer given more importance than the interpersonal relations. In life some odds are observed. The people who have similar schooling and other opportunities do differently in life. IQ scale does not explain this difference in their performance. Their Intelligence Quotient does not tell as to why people from the same or similar backgrounds, achieve different and varying goals in life.

Daniel Goleman says that the reason behind this is their different Emotional Quotient. Practical skills and the ability to handle other people contribute a lot towards the success of those who succeed. Daniel Goleman says that those who are successful have an armory equipped with weapons for managing the emotions of others.
People, who are familiar with the net of emotions of themselves, generally have a power to control and manage the emotions of others also. They can even read and deal effectively with other people's feelings. While the people who do not have control over their own emotional life, usually keep fighting inner battles with themselves. This fight sabotages their ability to focus on work and think clearly.

Emotional Intelligence

Daniel Goleman says that the Emotional Intelligence is the ability to know what emotion one has, how strong they are, what the reasons behind such emotions are. The Emotional Quotient also deals with the management, strategies, prevention and control of such emotions in a productive manner. Basically it is a type of social intelligence. Emotional Quotient also means the capacity to recognize our own emotions and those of others. This EQ is used for motivating ourselves and for managing emotions of our own and those who are in relationships with us.

The construct of emotional intelligence is not only the ability to monitor one's own and others' emotions, but to discriminate among them, and further to the use this information about emotions to guide one's own thinking and actions. Emotional intelligence is a critical factor contributing to the personal, academic, professional achievements and other related aspects of an individuals’ life.

A person hardly has an occasion to think if he were the same person without his name or parentage or religion etc. He is imbibed with a belief that all this information about him was an inseparable part of his personality.
