When Disaster Strikes – Who do You Call?
When Disaster Strikes
Who do You Call?
Disasters hit us on all levels of life. It can be the latest hurricane, earthquake, tidal wave, or any other natural disaster; it can be personal tragedy or it can be something small like dropping that ‘first cup of coffee’ on the floor as you are running out the door – you just know you are going to have a bad day. Disasters come in all shapes and sizes.
(To my Readers: Life is full of emotions, feelings, events, circumstances, and more. Some things in life are not comfortable to think about. Mind To Mind – The Brain Accelerator has always been about stimulating growth and providing intrigue. An interesting thing about life is you can make gains from even the most adverse of situations. We call these “Lessons”. Please read on…)
Discovering a Disaster
Disasters cause us to feel like less of the person we know we are. We lose self-worth. They make us feel small and impotent. It may be overwhelming, even when others see it as a minor inconvenience. So, really, it is our perception that turns events into disasters for us. Most of all, disasters can impact a little, or all of your life.
Disasters teach us many things if we are willing to listen and observe. They teach us strength. They teach us resiliency. Disasters teach you to be more; an improved version of your old self. Disasters force you to look at yourself in a different way. Think of how you perform in a disaster or crisis. Alas, most of us don’t perform very well at all. Why? Because most people are not trained to handle such moments; and they rely on others who are.
Preparing for a Disaster
Disasters come in all shapes and sizes. They can be natural disasters, such as tsunamis and tornadoes. Or they can be man-made, like war, terrorism, and economic collapse. And again, disasters can be events in your life that create a difficult circumstance for you. You would spend your whole life preparing if you were to prepare for all crises. But there is a way that will give you the edge for coping with disasters. Condition your mind.
Condition Your Mind for Disasters
I told you about people that are steadfast in their ability to deal with disasters of whatever making. So, what makes them different from you? (This assumes you are not one of those people already, you know the types of disaster management.) The one thing that all of them have in common, no matter what their disaster specialty, is they have undergone mental training that helps them with ALL disasters. It is a part of their conditioning. Does it make them callous and uncaring? Of course not! It simply means they can assess and help others in those situations without “losing their head”.
Brain Management for Disasters
Take steps to strengthen your mental state for dealing with disasters:
Gain access to your subconscious. Your subconscious is most easily reached with meditation or prayer. Learn the basic proper methods for using these techniques. Start doing this first. It may take you some time to build the relationship with your subconscious mind.
Make a comprehensive list of the qualities you want to achieve. Some of these qualities will be about how you react and behave in emergency, crisis, and disaster events. Learn how to build your own simple and effective programs for installing these qualities in you your subconscious while you are meditating. This is the first proactive step to creating your desired outcome.
Observe yourself.After you have the programs installed into your subconscious, observe how you behave and react, especially when you are confronted with a crisis or emergency. Compare these new reactions to how you would have previously reacted to a crisis or emergency.
The steps I have given you are very simple. But there is more to it than that. There are other things you can do to amplify your results, or to get the results quicker.
Facing an Emergency, Crisis, or Disaster
Here is the “crux” of this exercise. Don’t ask how to do all this overnight, and expect it to just work. TOO LATE!… I see it all the time. People wait, and wait, and wait, until the right time. Face it! There is NO RIGHT TIME! Your pursuit requires you to be prepared. That means taking steps consistently for months, maybe years in advance. That is the same steps those with training and mental conditioning have done before you. Those are the same basic steps you must do too.
An Alternative to Shorten Disaster Training Time.
We just painted a picture for you that you would be spending a considerable amount of time walking in the well-trodden footsteps of others that have gone before you. The truth is, there is a simple way to absorb all of the information at lightning speed, and be able to pick up the nuance of walking in those same boots, with breakneck efficiency.
I wanted to point out that in the roughest of times, there are often more lessons to be learned than in smooth sailing.
Being mentally present in all situations aids to increase the quality/claity of sensory input recording, processing and integration.
Hi Stan 79,
Thanks for that insight.
Yes, to be aware of your situiation, and to be able to integrate any new events with events you have experienced and learned from in the past, becomes a great aid in dealing with emregency situations. I am encouraging self-reliance by building your personal data base this way. These are the building blocks of “Leaders”.
Every emergency has followers that have not prepared; and for every leader there are many followers. But the followers quite often mistaken the people with the most bravado as leaders. It is important that people not stick their heads in the sand when it comes to crisis. It is a benefit to know who the “quiet heros” are.
