MY NEW MORNING ROUTINE

My new morning routine after a dark night.

Developing a new morning routine after I have experienced a “Dark night of the soul” –  has been a source of stability for me. Amid uncertainty and personal upheaval, I crafted this routine as a beacon of hope and renewal, and now I’m offering it to you for free.
 
You may find that some of the concepts in this routine are familiar, echoing wisdom you’ve encountered before. But as the adage goes, “When the student is ready, the teacher appears.” Sometimes, it takes revisiting familiar teachings in a new light for their true significance to resonate deeply within us.
 
The experience of the “Dark night of the soul” can be particularly daunting for “newbies” – unsettling the very foundation of our being.

Yet, as daunting as it may seem: 

The only way out is through. 

We undergo a profound inner transformation – emerging stronger and more resilient.

Are you currently on this journey? Know that you are not alone. Countless others have traversed similar paths through the void, each journey unique yet interconnected. 
 
Much love – may you always rekindle the ambers that keep the fire in your belly alive. Sincerely, Jackie Hardt
 
Ps. In the spirit of solidarity, I’ve compiled a booklist to accompany you on your quest for self-discovery and renewal. These books offer wisdom and solace to illuminate your path. Many travel through darkness – even if it seems lonely – it is a busy road.

Why you don’t have to believe in Astrology

Why you don’t have to believe in Astrology.

As I delved into the depths of metaphysical exploration, particularly in realms like Human Design and then deeper into Astrology, my focus honed in on the nodes—the north node illuminating our path of learning and the south node hinting at what we’re here to teach.

In this journey, I stumbled upon an article by Laveena Archer, an IHDS Human Design Guide Teacher, Analyst Trainer, Rave Psychologist, Primary Health System Practitioner, Holistic Analyst, and Variable Teacher, who wrote about fixed stars.

 

hardtfeld fixed stars

Naturally, my curiosity led me to explore further, eager to uncover the mythical narratives behind these celestial bodies. One such star, Alpheratz, also known as Alpha Andromedae, captured my attention. Upon discovering its significance in my chart, my heart swelled with warmth, as if recognizing an old friend.

Alpheratz, a radiant binary star system located 97 light-years from the Sun, holds historical significance reflected in its name, derived from the Arabic phrase “surrat al-faras” meaning “navel of the mare/horse,” linking it to the constellation Pegasus. Its mythic associations, including being referenced as the “head of the chained woman” in medieval astronomy, add layers of intrigue.

In Sidereal Astrology, Alpheratz, along with other stars in the Great Square of Pegasus, forms the nakshatras of Pūrva Bhādrapadā and Uttara Bhādrapadā.

The myth of Andromeda, a tale of bravery and love, further entwines with Alpheratz’s story, echoing through the cosmos alongside other alien races like the Pleiadians, Sirians, and Lyrans, revealing the vastness of our cosmic tapestry.

This exploration led me to delve into the concept of “Star Seeds,” which, while initially seeming distant, resonated deeply upon discovery. Andromedan Starseeds, beings of light committed to innovation and holistic healing, embody traits of freedom, intelligence, and creativity.

Their deep connection with nature and affinity for ancient civilizations like Atlantis and Egypt spoke to me on a profound level, resonating with my own experiences and interests. However, alongside their gifts, Andromedan Starseeds face challenges adapting to life on Earth, grappling with sensitivity and a yearning for liberation from conventional norms.

Despite these challenges, their mission of aiding humanity’s consciousness evolution remains steadfast. Through healing and self-discovery, they radiate compassionate light, embracing their true potential and guiding others on their earthly missions.

The symbolism associated with Andromedan Starseeds, including sacred geometry and the Triquetra symbol, further reinforces their connection to cosmic forces and spiritual evolution.

All in all it is hard for me not to see the connection. 🙂

In exploring these concepts, I invite others to embark on their own journey of self-discovery and cosmic exploration, perhaps finding resonance in the influence of cosmic energies on human consciousness.

If you are interested in diving deeper into these topics, and want to find your fixed star    have a look at the neutrino app, or you might want to check out Galactic Astrology:

Galactic Astrology

The term “galactic astrology” is found in a more esoteric and metaphysical context. Here, it refers to a form of astrology that includes the concept of a “Galactic Zodiac,” which is said to be aligned with “Alchemical Laws of God” and involves spiritual and consciousness evolution.

Galactic astrology can refer to either the scientific study of galaxies (galactic astronomy) or a spiritual belief system that combines astrology with concepts of cosmic consciousness and spiritual evolution.

This form of astrology is believed to be connected to the astrological signs which correspond to the time the Sun spends in their related constellations, and it includes a 13-sign zodiac system.

It is also associated with spiritual ascension and the influence of cosmic forces on human consciousness and evolution

I connected with Julia Balaz, who is a Qhht practioner, who learned from Dolores Cannon. Julia has developed a free site on ” Galactic Astrology”.

You can go here and look for your own Galactic background:

May we remember our shared origins as stars, guiding each other home along the path of en-lightenment. easy. 

“We who are nothing but stars, because that is what we are. We are stars.” Ra Uru Hu

“We all just walk each other home.”
Ram Dass

So, how about you? Shall we explore your charts next? You’ll find the cosmos speaking to you in ways you never imagined.

I am pretty sure you will not have to believe in Astrology after that. 🙂

The first thing I would like to bring to mind is:

A crucial principle: never discard any of your outputs. Even pieces crafted years ago can reignite inspirationand fill gaps in expression.

THE ROLE OF PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT IN BUILDING A SUCCESSFUL BRAND

The Crucial Role of Personal Development in Overcoming Business Challenges and Building a Successful Brand

Amidst massive changes such as the so-called ‘midlife crisis,’ divorce, significant loss, or the upheaval caused by the rapid advancement of AI, personal development becomes not just a luxury but a necessity.

Personal development can be a necessity when we go through life changes and things turn upside down, especially in the turbulent times we experience in the world today. AI is taking over many jobs, making it crucial to build something of our own – thus our Personal Brand. 

But to know what to do, to find out where our strengths, passions, as well as hurdles and obstacles lie, and how to build a business with these qualities – personal development is the corner stone for brand development.

For those facing the daunting prospect of reinventing themselves in the face of technological disruption or personal upheaval, personal development is the key to unlocking hidden potentials and overcoming self-imposed limitations. It’s about embracing change as an opportunity for growth, rather than succumbing to fear and uncertainty.

In these times of transition, when the ground beneath our feet seems to shift unpredictably, personal development serves as a steady anchor. Through introspection, self-awareness, and continuous learning about ourselves and the rapid evolution of business, we gain clarity on our values, strengths, and aspirations, laying the groundwork for a successful entrepreneurial journey.

Whether it’s rediscovering a sense of purpose after a career setback or rebuilding self-confidence in the aftermath of a personal crisis, personal development empowers us to turn adversity into advantage and forge a path towards fulfillment and success.

If you embark on the journey of building your own business, you can draw upon your newfound insights to create an authentic, resonant brand that reflects your unique identity and values.

It’s not just about selling products or services!

It is about making a meaningful impact on the world and leaving a legacy that aligns with one’s deepest convictions and aspirations.

By embracing personal development as a guiding principle, we can not only weather the storms of life but emerge stronger, wiser, and more resilient, ready to build businesses that reflect our true essence and purpose and help to make the world a better place.

Authentic being and doing is the currency to make your brand thrive and not just survive.
It is not just a nice-to-have but a vital component for a brand’s longevity and prosperity.

PRESENCE PROCESSING

PRESENCE PROCESSING

THE PRESENCE IS THE PRESENT!

Have you ever noticed that certain emotions seem to have a hold on you, even when you’re not consciously aware of them? Perhaps you’re feeling angry, upset, anxious, or depressed without understanding why. Maybe your body is signaling pain, and you can’t quite pinpoint the root cause.

These emotions often lurk deep within your subconscious, influencing your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors without your conscious recognition.

That’s where the practice of presence processing comes in:

By acknowledging and integrating these buried emotions, we can live more authentically and free ourselves from old patterns and limiting beliefs. “The Presence Process” by Michael Brown is a transformative guide that has helped countless individuals in this regard.

Brown’s book outlines a step-by-step process for integrating emotions and becoming more present in our daily lives. Central to this process is a breathing technique that helps calm the mind and release stuck emotions.

This breathing technique is designed to harmonize your breathing in an ongoing circular rhythm, activating your parasympathetic nervous system and promoting relaxation. It’s a simple yet powerful tool that you can use anytime, anywhere, to stay centered and focused.

Hardtfeld: Presence is the present

Repeat this cycle for 15 minutes in the morning

Clients who incorporate this technique into their lives often experience profound shifts, allowing them to release old patterns and beliefs that were holding them back.

If you’re seeking a practice for becoming more present and integrating your emotions into your daily life, I highly recommend exploring “The Presence Process” by Michael Brown. Alongside the book, Brown’s teachings on YouTube offer valuable insights and guidance.

BREATHWORK


BREATHWORK

Breathing is the perfect introduction to maximum relaxation and meditation.
What changes when you train your breathing regularly:

  • A more balanced basic attitude,
    as you can directly influence your emotional state with your breathing.
  • An alert, sharp mind, and better concentration.
  • A better supply of the whole body by utilizing the full lung capacity.
  • An increase in general well-being.
  •  A deep breath also releases more endorphins from the body.

If you have decided for yourself that the world – your world, your perception, your feelings, your state of being – does not correspond to your longing, and you want to change things, then the thought that change begins with you could be obvious. But what does it mean when you keep hearing that you should start with yourself? What does “be the change you wish to see” mean?

Where do you start?



First things first!

A good start is really to start at the beginning – here on this beautiful planet.
As unique as it is, so are you. Equipped with your very own blueprint, the moment you are born, you will be given the breath of life – our breath, prana.

Prana denotes the life energy that flows through everything. Our life begins with the first and ends with the last breath. We can only live as long as we breathe. Humans breathe around 20,000 times a day, moving around twelve cubic meters of air. We breathe non-stop, for a lifetime, and often not really properly.

We can feel it all over our bodies – because of the lack of oxygen carried by the breath, we are not really doing well. We cannot concentrate, we cannot think clearly, we are energetically drained, and irritable. We also transport that to the outside world, and our environment reacts to it, creating a vicious cycle.

Your breath is a good compass that can show you exactly how things are going. If we are emotionally charged, we breathe shallowly, briefly, or for a moment, not at all!


So, how do you breathe right?

Shouldn’t we actually be able to do that? Yes, we can – and very much so! But what does your breath do when overfilled streets, dense crowds, maybe certain living conditions, and mental as well as physical injuries cause you to breathe mostly as if you were on the run? Stress almost always causes us not to breathe fully. The breath may just fill the upper part of the lungs, and we are already breathing out! Your breath is the energy your organism needs.

Imagine allowing your breath to flow calmly into all the cells of your body. It’s a bit like an inner, invigorating shower – the organs can work refreshed and be at your best service, thanking you with well-being.

Deep breathing improves blood circulation, strengthens the immune system, and can lower blood pressure.

With good, deep breaths, you will also be able to find your inner access to yourself again over time – you will be given clarity that gives you a natural serenity. From there, it is wonderfully easy to lovingly encounter yourself and your own being on the way.



That’s where the practice of “Presence Processing” comes in:

By acknowledging and integrating these buried emotions, we can live more authentically and free ourselves from old patterns and limiting beliefs. One book that has been a game-changer for many people in this regard is “The Presence Process” by Michael Brown.

AROMATHERAPY: NATURE’S PRECIOUS GIFTS FOR WELL-BEING

Aromatherapy: Nature’s precious gifts for Well-Being

Aromatherapy is a holistic practice that harnesses the therapeutic potential of aromatic compounds found in plants. These natural essences, often in the form of essential oils, are distilled from various plant parts, each carrying its unique healing properties. When inhaled or applied, these aromatic elixirs engage our senses, offering a multi-dimensional approach to well-being.

Aromatherapy promotes balance and harmony within the body, mind, and for the spirit. Nature’s profound ability to nurture, soothe, and revitalize invites us to embark on a sensory journey toward holistic well-being.

Across our diverse planet, plants grace the Earth, each bearing a unique tapestry of shapes, sizes, colors, and fragrances. Within these plants lie hidden treasures – compounds, often imperceptible to the naked eye, residing in roots, blossoms, seeds, barks, and other botanical realms. These hidden gems are what we know as essential oils. Exquisitely concentrated, they possess unparalleled potency.

Unveiling the The Power of Essential Oils:

Essential oils bestow a plant with it’s distinctive fragrance and act as nature’s armor, shielding against the elements and repelling insects. They play a vital role in the intricate ballet of plant pollination.

The Dance with Olfactory Senses

As these aromatic compounds whisk through the air, they engage in a delicate pas de deux with the olfactory sensors of the brain. Here, within the inner sanctum of our senses, the true magic of essential oils unfolds.

Our sense of smell serves as the frontline gateway through which we engage with the world, profoundly intertwined with both our physical and mental well-being. Among the extensively researched realms of aromatherapy, the impact of scents on emotions and mood stands out prominently. Evidence supports the effectiveness of inhaling or topically applying essential oils in alleviating feelings of nervousness and anxiety.

Certain fragrances possess a direct influence on our emotional state, while others have the remarkable ability to evoke vivid memories associated with powerful feelings. Consider, for example, the way the scent of vanilla can transport you back to a specific moment in time.

Moreover, our olfactory centers share intricate connections with the hypothalamus, a vital region of the brain governing physiological functions throughout the body.

Harmonizing with Nature

Each essential oil bears its unique fingerprint, a testament to the distinct chemical makeup embedded within. This intricate dance of compounds imparts individuality, lending each oil its nuanced benefits, aroma, and essence. From plant to plant, the symphony of scents unfolds in a harmonious crescendo.

Echoes of Time: Essential Oils Across Ages

While some may perceive essential oils as a modern trend, their roots delve deep into the annals of history. Ancient civilizations revered these botanical extracts, weaving them into the fabric of their lives for aromatherapy, self-care, health, spirituality, beauty, and culinary arts. This tradition, passed down through centuries, bears witness to the enduring legacy of essential oils across cultures worldwide:

Nurturing Beauty and well-being Across Cultures

China:
The tapestry of Chinese traditions has been interwoven with plant-based remedies for centuries, honoring the wisdom of nature in promoting holistic wellness.

Egypt:
Ancient Egyptians elevated beauty treatments to an art form. Plant-based products found their way into rituals, from enhancing physical allure to sacred burial practices and spiritual ceremonies.

France:

FREQUENCIES

FREQUENCIES

Frequencies – waves and vibrations – encapsulate a fundamental aspect of our perceptible world.

They are the rhythmic oscillations or repetitive patterns of a wave, measured in cycles per second or Hertz (Hz). From the subtle undulations of sound to the energetic pulsations of electromagnetic fields, frequencies form the very essence of our sensory experiences.

At its core, the concept of frequencies is rooted in the fundamental nature of wave propagation. When an object oscillates, it generates waves that travel through a medium, whether it be air, water, or even the vacuum of space. These waves, characterized by their frequency, wavelength, and amplitude, carry energy and information across space and time.

“IF YOU WANT TO FIND THE SECRETS OF THE UNIVERSE –
THINK IN TERMS OF ENERGY, FREQUENCY AND VIBRATION.”

Nikola Tesla

The significance of frequencies permeates every facet of our existence

They orchestrate the symphony of sounds that serenade our ears, from the melodic notes of music to the reverberations of speech. Frequencies also govern the vast spectrum of light that paints our visual world, illuminating the wonders of nature and technology alike.

Harnessing the Power of Vibrational Frequencies: 

The Mind-Body Connection

Our thoughts and feelings emit energetic vibrations frequencies. Though imperceptible to the naked eye, they have a tangible impact on our well-being. Positive thoughts and emotions resonate at higher frequencies, creating an environment of vitality, clarity, and joy. Conversely, negative thoughts and emotions vibrate at lower frequencies, potentially leading to feelings of lethargy, stress, and dissonance.

Furthermore, these energetic vibrations are not confined to our inner world. They ripple out into our surroundings, influencing the energy of spaces and even the reactions of those around us. 

It’s akin to a silent language communicating our inner state to the universe.

By becoming attuned to the power of our frequencies, we hold the key to shaping our reality. Through mindfulness, positive affirmations, and intentional practices, we can elevate our vibrational state, creating a harmonious resonance between mind, body, and environment. In doing so, we unlock the potential for transformation, inviting a higher, more vibrant way of living into our lives.


The Schumann Resonance: Earth’s Natural Frequency

One of the most intriguing frequencies in the natural world is known as the Schumann Resonance. Named after physicist Winfried Otto Schumann, this phenomenon refers to the resonant frequency of the Earth’s electromagnetic field. In recent years, the Schumann Resonance has garnered attention due to concerns about human-generated electromagnetic interference. The proliferation of electronic devices and wireless technologies has led to discussions about the potential effects of this natural frequency and, consequently, on living organisms.

The Earth’s Heartbeat

The Schumann Resonance linkes to the Earth’s heartbeat, with its fundamental frequency hovering around 7.83 hertz (Hz). This resonance arises from the cavity between the Earth’s surface and the ionosphere, which is about 80 kilometers above.

Synchronization with Brain Waves

Interestingly, the Schumann Resonance is remarkably close to the frequency range of human brain waves, particularly the Alpha and Theta states associated with relaxed awareness and deep meditation. Some theorists suggest a potential correlation between these frequencies and states of consciousness.

Influence on Biological Rhythms

There is ongoing research into the potential impact of Schumann Resonance on living organisms. Some studies propose that this natural frequency may play a role in regulating biological rhythms, including sleep patterns and hormone secretion.

Some holistic practices and alternative therapies incorporate the concept of the Schumann Resonance in their approach to healing and well-being. 

The Influence of Frequencies on Human Experience

Frequencies influence various aspects of human experience, including emotions, moods, and overall well-being.

Frequencies resonate with our emotional states, potentially amplifying or calming feelings. For instance, lower frequencies, like those found in deep, resonant sounds, may evoke a sense of grounding and tranquility, while higher frequencies can impart a sense of excitement or alertness.

Frequency in the Natural World

A famous experiment involving frequencies and water, was conducted by Dr. Masaru Emoto, a Japanese scientist. He claimed that human consciousness could directly influence the molecular structure of water. Dr. Emoto’s experiments involved exposing water to various stimuli, including music, words, and written intentions, and then freezing the water to observe the resulting crystalline structures.

 

 


Alternative Medicine and Energy Healing

Therapeutic Applications

Certain frequencies are used in therapeutic settings to address specific emotional or psychological challenges. For instance, specific frequencies may be employed in sound therapy to alleviate stress, anxiety, or even pain.

Biofeedback and Bio-Resonance

Biofeedback and Bio-Resonance are alternative therapeutic approaches that utilize frequencies in the context of holistic health and well-being. Biofeedback provides real-time feedback on physiological processes such as heart rate, muscle tension, and skin temperature. By becoming aware of these processes, individuals can learn to regulate them, potentially leading to improved health outcomes.

Bio Resonance, on the other hand, is based on the idea that every cell, tissue, and organ in the body emits its own unique electromagnetic frequency. Practitioners use specialized devices to measure and analyze these frequencies, identifying imbalances or disruptions in the body’s energy field. This information aimes at restoring balance and promoting healing.

Natural Vibrations of Crystals

Crystals possess unique vibrational frequencies, which can be influenced by factors like temperature, pressure, and impurities.

Modalities like crystal healing, color therapy, and energy work operate on the premise that different frequencies have unique healing properties. Practitioners believe aligning the body’s frequencies with specific vibrational energies can promote physical, emotional, and spiritual healing.

Brainwave Frequencies

The frequencies present in our environment, like flowing water or bird songs or from man-made sources like machinery or electronic devices, can have subtle yet tangible effects on our mood and overall sense of well-being.

Meditation: 

Binaural Beats / synchronized waves can facilitate the transition into meditative states, enhancing focus and relaxation.

Focus and Productivity: 

Synchronizing brainwaves to specific frequencies,  leads to heightened concentration and productivity.

Stress Reduction and Relaxation

Entrainment techniques can induce deep relaxation, helping to alleviate stress and anxiety.

Sleep enhancement:

Exposure to specific frequencies can influence our brainwave patterns through the process of entrainment.

Music and Mood

Music is a powerful example of how frequencies impact our emotional state. Different musical notes and harmonies can evoke a wide range of emotions, from joy and exhilaration to introspection and melancholy. Music therapy often leverages this phenomenon to promote emotional healing and well-being.

These modalities are employed by sound healers and practitioners to facilitate physical, emotional, and energetic healing, as well as to promote states of deep relaxation and meditation. Each modality offers a unique approach to harnessing the therapeutic potential of sound vibrations.

Sound Healing:

Sound healing modalities encompass a diverse range of instruments and techniques that harness the power of vibrations for therapeutic purposes. Here are some notable sound healing modalities:

Crystal Singing Bowls: These bowls are made from quartz crystal and produce pure, resonant tones when played. Each bowl tuned to a specific note, corresponds to a chakra or energy center in the body.

Pic. hd / gene keys attunement 

Tuning Forks: Tuning forks are precision-calibrated metal instruments that emit specific frequencies when struck. They are used to apply focused vibrations to different parts of the body, promoting healing and balance.

Gongs: Gongs produce powerful, multidimensional tones that can induce deep relaxation and meditation. Their rich harmonics can penetrate the body on a cellular level.

Drums: Drumming is an ancient form of sound therapy that involves rhythmic patterns and vibrations. It promotes grounding, stress relief, and even facilitate altered states of consciousness.

Didgeridoo: This Australian Aboriginal instrument produces low-frequency, resonant sounds. Its vibrations are believed to have therapeutic effects on the body, particularly concerning respiratory and circulatory systems.

Singing / Himalayan Bowls (Metal): Similar to crystal bowls, metal singing bowls – made from alloys of various metals – produce complex, harmonious tones and are often used for meditation and relaxation.

Flutes: Native American flutes, bansuris, and other traditional flutes create soothing melodies that can induce a state of calmness and mindfulness.

Voice and Chanting: The human voice is a powerful tool for sound healing. Vocal toning, chanting, and mantra recitation can stimulate energy flow and promote emotional release.

Bells: Various types of bells, including Tibetan bells and Tingsha bells, produce clear, high-frequency tones. They are often used to signal the beginning or end of a sound healing session.

Monochords: This instrument consists of a single string stretched over a resonant chamber. It creates a continuous, soothing tone that can induce deep relaxation.

Pyramid Resonance Therapy: This involves the use of pyramids, often made of quartz or other resonant materials, to amplify and direct healing vibrations.

Relevance of Brainwave “Entrainment”

Brainwave entrainment involves using external stimuli, like sound or light pulses, to synchronize brainwave activity.

Binaural Beats

Binaural beats are a fascinating auditory phenomenon that can influence our brainwave activity. They occur when two slightly different frequencies are presented separately to each ear. The brain perceives the difference between these frequencies as a rhythmic pulsing, or “beat,” which is not actually present in the auditory input. For example, if one ear hears a tone at 300 Hz and the other at 310 Hz, the brain perceives a binaural beat of 10 Hz.

These beats have shown potential in various applications. For instance, binaural beats in the Alpha range (around 8 to 14 Hz) may promote relaxation and calmness, making them suitable for stress reduction or meditation. In contrast, beats in the Beta range (around 14 to 30 Hz) may be used to enhance alertness and concentration.

Research suggests that listening to binaural beats can influence mental states, potentially aiding in focus, relaxation, and even sleep. While the science is still evolving, many individuals find binaural beats to be a valuable tool for achieving desired mental states and enhancing their overall well-being.

EMPATHETIC MULTI-POTENTIALITE, SCANNER, OR EVEN POLYMATH?

Empathic Multi-Potentialite, Scanner, or even Polymath?

“What are Empaths, HSPs, Scanner Personalities, or Polymaths – and how may they relate to ADHD?”

Let’s explore various personality types, beginning with Empaths, Highly Sensitive Persons (HSPs), Scanner Personalities, Multipods, and Polymaths. These personalities exhibit unique characteristics and traits, with some overlapping traits associated with ADHD symptoms.

The general description of Scanner Personalities, Multipods, or Polymaths refers to humans with diverse interests and talents. With a natural inclination to explore and learn about various subjects, they represent a unique segment of the population with distinct characteristics and traits. These traits may sometimes overlap with symptoms associated with diagnosed ADHD, sparking my growing interest in understanding the correlations between them. As a Scanner/Multipotentialite myself, I’ve found that this overlap not only highlights the richness of our experiences, but also sheds light on the challenges we face. These insights can help us navigate both the opportunities and hurdles that come with our unique way of engaging with the world.

 

Difference and similarity:

  • Difference:

Empaths possess a heightened ability to sense and absorb emotions and energies, while Highly Sensitive Persons (HSPs) experience heightened sensitivity to external stimuli like noise, light, and emotions.

  • Similarity:

Both Empaths and HSPs may encounter symptoms that overlap with ADHD, including distractibility and difficulty with attention regulation.

Too much pressure!


According to Barbara Sher, author and coach who coined the term “Scanner Personality,” these characteristics should not be confused with diagnosed (or undiagnosed!) ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder). With ADHD, concentrating on a single thing can be challenging, whereas this is not the case for a Scanner. Sher states that Scanner-type personalities find it difficult to focus on one single occupation, hobby, or career long-term.
 
“A person with scanner modalities has no issues with deep diving into a subject of interest: But – not forever!”
 
Barbara Sher’s book “Refuse to Choose” is an interesting read with many ‘Aha’ moments: “A typical behavior for a Scanner is to start something new, immerse themselves in all there is to know about it, and once they have absorbed and internalized it all, it is time for a new endeavor. A Scanner gets bored quite easily, especially with rigid and unchanging routines. The Scanner needs new challenges.


  • Scanner Personalities:

Scanner Personalities encompass people with a diverse array of interests and talents, who relish exploring various subjects and pursuits. They thrive on continual learning and may find it challenging to commit to a single career or life path.

However, I find the term “Scanner” to be somewhat technical and invasive. Emily Wapnick, a writer, artist, and Career Coach, has popularized the term “Multipods” through her TED Talk titled “Why Some of Us Don’t Have One True Calling” from 2015. According to Wapnick, “Scanner Personalities” are essentially “Multipotentialites“:

“Multipotentiality is commonly a concern among individuals with moderately high IQs, who possess academic talent, and excel in two or more vastly different abilities, such as violin virtuosity and mathematics precocity.”

If you resonate with this description, you may find her book, “How to be Everything,” to be an insightful read.


Perhaps you can somewhat relate?

You have a keen interest in – let’s say – A LOT! You are skilled at a gazillion things, and there is this one sentence you, just like me, keep hearing over and over again: “You should concentrate on one thing!” or “Finish one thing first!” or “You are a Jack of all trades – and will be a master of none!”
 

Let’s discuss this!

What if your purpose isn’t to follow a predictable, monotonous path in life?
 
Routine feels like a killer: Multipotentialites and Polymaths are usually deep divers into various widespread topics that catch their attention, like Quantum physics, gardening, nootropics, or web technology – you name it! I heard a descriptive observation:

“Multipods would like to do everything at once – or do everything at least once.”

I agree, though: Certainly NOT EVERYTHING! 🙂
People are commonly either in awe for all the knowledge Multipotentialites possess – or are bewildered because they cannot relate and find a person with scanner modalities scattered or superficial – but the exact opposite is often the case:
 
Scanner personalities, Multipods, or Polymaths have a natural curiosity and thirst for knowledge, leading them to explore multiple fields, hobbies, and passions. They are not content with pursuing a single career or area of expertise but find fulfillment in new interests and skills. These individuals thrive in continuous learning.


The main difference lies in the depth of knowledge and expertise:

Multipotentialites have a wide range of interests and may acquire a general understanding of various subjects without inevitably becoming masters.
While they share a natural inclination with Polymaths for diverse learning – driven by curiosity and a thirst for knowledge. Polymaths excel in diverse fields and are often highly skilled in various areas of study. They go beyond mere exploration – seeking achievement, deep understanding, and mastery in whatever they pursue. Multipods delight in exploring multiple subjects without the pressure of specialization.
 
More often than not, humans with multi-potentiality are very empathetic, which can be overwhelming. Working on their own – rather than in an office with a large team – is beneficial for them – since they need a lot of me-time to recharge. Remote is the antidote.

Summing up the benefits and pitfalls
of being a Scanner Personality, Multipotentialite, or Polymath:

Benefits:

Despite the challenges, people with traits associated with Scanner Personalities, Multipotentialites, or Polymaths also enjoy numerous benefits:

  • Versatility and Adaptability:

One of their key strengths is versatility and adaptability. Instead of feeling confined to a single path, they embrace diverse interests, contributing unique perspectives and skills to various fields. This flexibility allows them to excel in different domains and make significant contributions to society.

  • Broad Range of Interests and Talents:

They possess a diverse skill set and knowledge base, enabling them to excel in various fields and pursuits. Their wide range of interests allows them to explore new passions and acquire different skills, leading to personal growth and fulfillment.

  • Personal Fulfillment and Sense of Purpose:

Exploring diverse passions and pursuing multiple interests brings a sense of fulfillment and purpose to their lives. They find joy in learning new things and are motivated by the excitement of discovery. This sense of purpose drives them to pursue their interests with enthusiasm and dedication.

  • Innovative Thinking and Creative Solutions:

Their ability to draw connections between disciplines and ideas often leads to innovative solutions and creative breakthroughs. They thrive in interdisciplinary collaborations, offering unique perspectives and insights.


Pitfalls:

Empaths, HSPs, and Scanner Personalities may encounter various challenges and misconceptions:

  • Being a Jack of all trades

While versatility is a strength, the notion of being a ‘Jack of all trades, master of none’ can also present challenges. This term implies that individuals may have a basic level of skill or knowledge in various areas but may not excel or specialize in any particular field. As a result, they may struggle to establish themselves as experts or find fulfillment in traditional career paths that value specialization.

  • Indecisiveness and lack of focus:

Due to the tendency to explore multiple interests and passions, they have a reputation for being indecisive or lacking focus, especially in traditional career paths that value specialization.

  • Procrastination and perfectionism:

Fear of rejection and perfectionism can hinder individuals with these traits from fully realizing their potential. Heightened sensitivity to criticism and failure may lead to procrastination and obsessive attention to detail, making it difficult to execute ideas and complete projects. Over time, this may result in social and financial difficulties.

  • Overwhelm and sensory overload:

Heightened sensitivity to external stimuli can lead to feelings of overwhelm and sensory overload, particularly in noisy or chaotic environments. Empaths, HSPs, and scanner personalities may struggle to filter out irrelevant information, leading to exhaustion and anxiety.


  • Difficulty focusing and maintaining attention:

The constant influx of stimuli can make it challenging to concentrate on tasks. Empaths, HSPs, and Scanner Personalities may encounter hurdles to maintain focus amidst distractions, leading to difficulties completing projects or following through on commitments – these are symptoms often related to the Reticular Activating System (RAS):

The Reticular Activating System (RAS) plays a crucial role in filtering sensory information and regulating arousal levels in the brain. An overactive or hypersensitive RAS can contribute to the symptoms experienced by empaths, HSPs, and Scanner Personalities. This hypersensitivity may result in difficulty filtering irrelevant stimuli, leading to sensory overload and overwhelm in stimulating environments. Additionally, they may experience heightened emotional responses and fluctuating attention levels due to the RAS’s role in regulating arousal and alertness.

Understanding the impact of the RAS on individuals with these personality traits can shed light on their experiences with sensory overwhelm and difficulty focusing. However, delving too deeply into neurobiological concepts like the RAS might detract from the main focus of exploring personality types and their connections to ADHD. Therefore, it’s essential to integrate this information seamlessly into the broader narrative to maintain reader engagement and clarity.

 Are you a Multi-Potentialite, Scanner, or even Polymath too? 

  • Your mind is like a melting pot of inspiration for probably more ideas than one human alone can transform into reality.
  • You question authorities and hierarchies. 
  • Decision-making is not so easy a task for you. 
  • Finishing projects can be daunting and haunting: sticking to one thing longer – so it can be financially fruit-bearing – feels likely almost impossible. 
  • You are very good at learning on your terms; thus, you are very often autodidactic. 
  • You are a well of information that you share with enthusiasm – if it is still on your excitement horizon.

Fusing all this knowledge can be challenging and often causes distress when not knowing how to pursue a career – and to make a living that satisfies the heart and senses long-term.

To overcome these challenges and embrace your unique strengths, consider the following strategies:

  • Embrace versatility:

Instead of viewing your diverse interests as a weakness, embrace and accept your versatility, seeing it as a strength. Leverage your ability to draw connections between various disciplines to innovate and problem-solve effectively.

  • Practice self-compassion:

Self-compassion and recognizing that it is okay to explore multiple interests are essential. Celebrate your achievements and progress along your unique paths, even if you deviate from conventional expectations.

  • Look for diversity in learning and career paths:

– Advocate for a more inclusive approach to education and career development. 

 – Embrace your multifaceted nature and pursue diverse interests.
– Create environments that nurture and support the growth of your scanner personality or multipotentiality, fostering innovation, creativity, and personal fulfillment.
– Harness your unique talents and perspectives of diverse interests, leading to a more vibrant and dynamic society.

  • Set clear goals: 

Setting clear goals and priorities helps us to stay focused, avoiding overwhelm by our diverse interests. Breaking down larger goals into smaller, manageable tasks can also help maintain momentum and motivation.

  • Movement:

Physical exercise and gentle movement are vital to regulate bodily and nervous system feedback. Try Tai Chi and Qi Gong, Yoga, dancing, or even running – they are our medicine!


INSTANT SUPPORT:

  • Morning rituals and journaling:

Some routines are life-saving! Installling a morning routine, incorporating journaling, and checking in with my down-sized to-do list helped me frame for personal and business success. 


  • Meditation and breathwork

After learning and deep diving into meditation and breathwork, I have come to the cconclusion that these two are the alpha and omega for a sane day-to-day life. 

Especially as a multipotentialite Empath with traces of ADHD – presence in the moment is a nourishing soil for inner resilience.



How about transforming all this knowledge into a tool?

It could be your greatest asset – a true gift! Discover how it can serve you while also benefiting others. Within you lies the wonders you seek externally.

FIRST THINGS FIRST - FOCUS


Empathic Multi-Potentialite, Scanner, or even Polymath?

“What are Empaths, HSPs, Scanner Personalities, or Polymaths – and how may they relate to ADHD?”

Let’s explore various personality types, beginning with Empaths, Highly Sensitive Persons (HSPs), Scanner Personalities, Multipods, and Polymaths. These personalities exhibit unique characteristics and traits, with some overlapping traits associated with ADHD symptoms.

The general description of Scanner Personalities, Multipods, or Polymaths refers to humans with diverse interests and talents. With a natural inclination to explore and learn about various subjects, they represent a unique segment of the population with distinct characteristics and traits. These traits may sometimes overlap with symptoms associated with diagnosed ADHD, sparking my growing interest in understanding the correlations between them. As a Scanner/Multipotentialite myself, I’ve found that this overlap not only highlights the richness of our experiences, but also sheds light on the challenges we face. These insights can help us navigate both the opportunities and hurdles that come with our unique way of engaging with the world.

 

Difference and similarity:

  • Difference:

Empaths possess a heightened ability to sense and absorb emotions and energies, while Highly Sensitive Persons (HSPs) experience heightened sensitivity to external stimuli like noise, light, and emotions.

  • Similarity:

Both Empaths and HSPs may encounter symptoms that overlap with ADHD, including distractibility and difficulty with attention regulation.

Too much pressure!


According to Barbara Sher, author and coach who coined the term “Scanner Personality,” these characteristics should not be confused with diagnosed (or undiagnosed!) ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder). With ADHD, concentrating on a single thing can be challenging, whereas this is not the case for a Scanner. Sher states that Scanner-type personalities find it difficult to focus on one single occupation, hobby, or career long-term.
 
“A person with scanner modalities has no issues with deep diving into a subject of interest: But – not forever!”
 
Barbara Sher’s book “Refuse to Choose” is an interesting read with many ‘Aha’ moments: “A typical behavior for a Scanner is to start something new, immerse themselves in all there is to know about it, and once they have absorbed and internalized it all, it is time for a new endeavor. A Scanner gets bored quite easily, especially with rigid and unchanging routines. The Scanner needs new challenges.


  • Scanner Personalities:

Scanner Personalities encompass people with a diverse array of interests and talents, who relish exploring various subjects and pursuits. They thrive on continual learning and may find it challenging to commit to a single career or life path.

However, I find the term “Scanner” to be somewhat technical and invasive. Emily Wapnick, a writer, artist, and Career Coach, has popularized the term “Multipods” through her TED Talk titled “Why Some of Us Don’t Have One True Calling” from 2015. According to Wapnick, “Scanner Personalities” are essentially “Multipotentialites“:

“Multipotentiality is commonly a concern among individuals with moderately high IQs, who possess academic talent, and excel in two or more vastly different abilities, such as violin virtuosity and mathematics precocity.”

If you resonate with this description, you may find her book, “How to be Everything,” to be an insightful read.


Perhaps you can somewhat relate?

You have a keen interest in – let’s say – A LOT! You are skilled at a gazillion things, and there is this one sentence you, just like me, keep hearing over and over again: “You should concentrate on one thing!” or “Finish one thing first!” or “You are a Jack of all trades – and will be a master of none!”
 

Let’s discuss this!

What if your purpose isn’t to follow a predictable, monotonous path in life?
 
Routine feels like a killer: Multipotentialites and Polymaths are usually deep divers into various widespread topics that catch their attention, like Quantum physics, gardening, nootropics, or web technology – you name it! I heard a descriptive observation:

“Multipods would like to do everything at once – or do everything at least once.”

I agree, though: Certainly NOT EVERYTHING! 🙂
People are commonly either in awe for all the knowledge Multipotentialites possess – or are bewildered because they cannot relate and find a person with scanner modalities scattered or superficial – but the exact opposite is often the case:
 
Scanner personalities, Multipods, or Polymaths have a natural curiosity and thirst for knowledge, leading them to explore multiple fields, hobbies, and passions. They are not content with pursuing a single career or area of expertise but find fulfillment in new interests and skills. These individuals thrive in continuous learning.


The main difference lies in the depth of knowledge and expertise:

Multipotentialites have a wide range of interests and may acquire a general understanding of various subjects without inevitably becoming masters.
While they share a natural inclination with Polymaths for diverse learning – driven by curiosity and a thirst for knowledge. Polymaths excel in diverse fields and are often highly skilled in various areas of study. They go beyond mere exploration – seeking achievement, deep understanding, and mastery in whatever they pursue. Multipods delight in exploring multiple subjects without the pressure of specialization.
 
More often than not, humans with multi-potentiality are very empathetic, which can be overwhelming. Working on their own – rather than in an office with a large team – is beneficial for them – since they need a lot of me-time to recharge. Remote is the antidote.

THE POWER OF MYTH

THE POWER OF MYTH

The hero/ines journey revisited

Joseph Campbell – the power of myth and the hero/ines Journey:

The Power of Myth was the first book I devoured when I started my acting classes at the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute in Los Angeles. There was a list of recommended books to get and looking back now, I can say that this one was the! essential read.

 

Hardtfeld _The power of myth


Joseph Campbell

Joseph Campbell was a 20th-century mythologist who compared religions and myths of the world and noticed a common thread. Filmmakers like e.g. George Lucas used this universal story structure as a base for his stories. 

The Hero/ine’s Journey has been a fundamental guideline for screenwriting in the film industry ever since. 

 He drew connections between the philosophies and mythic narratives of cultures worldwide, discovering a common thread that resonates universally.:

Campbell’s insight was that beneath the diverse stories we tell, there is a fundamental narrative that speaks to all of us, regardless of our origins. This narrative, which he termed the “hero’s journey,” lies at the heart of our shared human experience.

There are uncountable versions of hero stories from every culture. However, it wasn’t until Joseph Campbell came along that many realized how they all seemed to interlock, essentially telling the same story:
A simplified rendition of the hero’s journey involves someone starting in their familiar, protected world, and receiving a call to adventure. This call is marked by a vision, a quest, and it forms the core of the hero’s story. The hero faces trials, encounters various challenges and adversaries, meets those who harm and those who aid, and confronts closed doors.

Entering the cave you fear to enter

On the hero’s journey, one must face dragons, be they real or symbolic. These challenges arise as the hero ventures towards the innermost cave, where the most pivotal crisis awaits, and where the hero’s true self is unveiled. 


This culminating moment is one of triumph and glory, but it is not the journey’s conclusion:

After facing the challenges, the hero’s path leads them back to their community, ready to share their transformative story, woven with adventures, featuring heroes, villains, gods, goddesses, knights, and mythical beings.

Interestingly, they are mirrors reflecting our inner landscapes, springing forth from the depths of our own souls.

With a discerning eye, you’ll find the pattern in numerous stories, be it Star Wars, The Matrix, Harry Potter, or the tale of The Ugly Duckling: Each of these is a timeless narrative following the hero’s odyssey.

WHAT IS YOUR HEROINE’S STORY?

At the heart of storytelling lies a profound lesson. Characters step into the shadows of the unknown, facing their innermost selves. Here lies a deep connection between confronting fear and gaining a soulful enrichment — a hidden power of immense value. These are the crucible moments, where humans approach what seems like the brink of despair, only to emerge stronger, redeemed, and ultimately, elevated.
We call them heroes.

Imagine if we could distill all these stories into a single map, a universal guide for all of us. 

Because deep down, every human being shares a common thread. Whether we’re navigating through a grand external conflict like World War II or an internal battle, the essence of the journey remains unaltered. In truth, we’re not disconnected from the characters we meet in our tales, whether they grace the screen or the pages of a novel — because they are us. It’s a shared odyssey that binds us all.

The hero’s journey mirrors the journey of life:

 The hero’s journey beautifully mirrors the trajectory of our lives: We enter this world, navigate the trials of childhood and adolescence, strive to find our footing as adults, embark on adventures, grapple with inner conflicts,.

 

 


hardtfeld - the hero on its journey

As the years pass, we age, and eventually, we bid farewell to this earthly existence. Yet, within this finite period, we yearn for something more. A purpose that resonates with our very being. It need not be grand or showy, but it must hold profound significance for us.

It’s the journey from the mundane to the extraordinary. It’s a transition from shadow to “enlightenment”. It’s the profound shift from a life that lacks fulillment to one that overflows with it, earned by surmounting challenges that once seemed insurmountable. If we confront our fears, conquer our inner demons, and cross the threshold, symbolising our arrival, we ultimately, transform into heroes.

Mythology should be regarded for what it truly is—a metaphor for our human existence.

Joseph Campbell believed they are narratives about the psyche,- what Carl Jung referred to as the self. Jung termed these encapsulated stories or mythologies “Archetypes”.

DISCOVER YOUR PERSONAL ARCHETYPES

Dazed and confused equates to stagnant entropy.

In a world obsessed with instant gratification, bombarded by constant media, and advertisements, many inadvertently disconnect from their innermost selves. They overlook the mythical realm that dwells within each person, housing their fervent passions, innate gifts, exceptional talents, and exclusive modes of self-expression. This is their soul—a boundless source of potential and endless possibilities.

Examining every hero’s journey reveals a common theme: 

The hero confronts the realisation that the world they believed to be real is nothing more than an illusion.

In the much-debated and influential film “The Matrix,” the central character, Neo, finds himself ensnared within an elaborate illusion, woven from the prevailing norms and beliefs of society. Deep within, he sensed a profound longing to break free from this mirage. It was this yearning that propelled him to opt for the red pill, a choice that unraveled a fresh reality before him. This newfound world unveiled the reservoir of untapped potential within him.

The call to adventure:

There exists a cosmic summons, urging us to venture beyond the boundaries of our accustomed reality. This call lingers, insistent, until we heed its presence. It might arrive with a tender touch or a powerful jolt, contingent upon our depth of perception.

Life’s trials, like the abrupt loss of a job, the fracture of a marriage, or financial upheaval, often come cloaked in the garb of crisis. While these challenges may initially bring distress, they bear the potential to reveal hidden facets of our being, propelling us towards profound personal growth.

The Chinese symbol for crisis encapsulates both: danger and opportunity.

From surviving to thriving

In mythology, death symbolises a profound transformation, a shift in one’s existence. A metaphorical death, where something must perish for something new to thrive. 


The snake is unable to shed its skin and faces inevitable demise.

The key to embracing these moments of death and transformation lies in acknowledging that it signifies the end of an outdated form, one that has exhausted its purpose. This demise paves the way for a rebirth, a fresh beginning imbued with renewed meaning, making life even richer and more meaningful.

 

As we grow as individuals, we learn the art of embracing these cycles of death and rebirth. It’s in these experiences that we find our proofs—proofs of our resilience, our capacity to transcend even the darkest chapters of our lives.

Ultimately, it’s not the events themselves that define us, but rather how we choose to navigate and grow from them.

Following one’s bliss is not about pursuing hedonistic pleasures or selfishness. It’s about listening to the call of your inner spirit and embracing the possibilities of the present moment. It’s about engaging in activities that make time seem to fly by because of the joy and absorption they bring. Combining this with skills and talents is key for a thriving life.

Discovering one’s bliss involves introspection and asking questions such as: 

  •  What am I passionate about? 
  •  What activities make time fly by? 
  • What set me apart as a child, even if it made me different from others? 

This exploration can lead to the door of your bliss. In essence, following your bliss means finding and embracing what truly inspires and fulfills you, even if it means charting a unique course that defies convention.

Engage in activities that bring you happiness and fulfillment. 

Following your dreams and doing what you love doesn’t always guarantee immediate financial success, but it leads to a personal fulfillment that’s invaluable.

Many of history’s exceptional inventors, visionary business leaders, and pioneering scientists were motivated not primarily by financial gain, but by an unwavering passion and a profound sense of purpose. It’s about discovering that one thing that strikes a chord deep within you, something you feel you MUST pursue.

Ask yourself: What would you do if money was not an issue?

 

FROM SURVIVING TO THRIVING

Taking that first step towards your passion can be intimidating, especially when faced with uncertainty and fear of failure and the opinions and judgments of others can be a major obstacle in pursuing one’s bliss. 

Overcoming this fear is a crucial step in the journey toward fulfillment and authenticity.

The caged bird that sings – symbolizes the freedom and authenticity that comes with embracing one’s true calling.

When you decide to answer the call, embracing the challenges of this awakened existence, you tap into unparalleled power. Yet, many are hesitant to confront this power – until there comes a point of no return.

Leaving the uncomfortable comfort zone:

Each time we choose to face our fears, our comfort zone expands, and what once seemed daunting becomes more manageable. It is crucial for our personal growth and empowerment.

 

Slaying the dragon?

Campbell’s notion of slaying dragons serves as a powerful metaphor for facing the inner challenges and obstacles that pepper our life’s journey. Instead of evading these challenges, the courageous choice is to draw nearer to them, enabling us to perceive them in their true light. Through this, we gradually diminish the dominion these fears exert over us.

This concept of projecting our internal struggles onto external adversaries, such as dragons, delves into the realms of psychology. It proposes that the battles we engage with in our external world often mirror the skirmishes within our hearts and minds.

The only way out is through.

Indeed, when faced with challenges, it’s entirely natural to feel fear. However, true courage manifests in the act of pushing through that fear. It’s crucial to remember that feeling scared is a valid emotion; it should never serve as a barrier to taking action. Have you witnessed in your own life how certain things show up again and again until resolved? 

Breakdown before breakthrough:

Battling our inner demons and triumphing over life’s challenges is a transformative journey. It empowers us to confront fear, grow beyond its limits, and ultimately seize control over it. It’s worth noting that some of life’s most rewarding moments often emerge on the other side of a struggle.

In essence, each setback or challenge is akin to half of a larger picture, waiting for a stroke of higher awareness to complete it. By infusing our difficulties with a deeper level of understanding, we gain a more comprehensive perspective that aids us in mastering them.

The true essence of the hero’s journey

 This Cycle of life lies not in conquering external dragons or acquiring material rewards, but in the inner transformation and the tales we bring back to ignite inspiration in others. This journey is an ongoing cycle of development, wisdom, and giving back. 

Embracing the dragon and its cave as part of your journey implies the inherent wisdom of truly loving yourself:

Sitting with your pain, not escaping it, accepting to integrate your shadows and embrace them as the seeds for your evolution, allowing your gifts to shine.

Happy life, happy death.

As we approach our deathbeds, regrets don’t come from the risks we took, the opportunities we seized, or the times we looked silly. They stem from the risks we didn’t take, and the opportunities we missed. It’s the choices we didn’t make that fill our hearts with regret.

Find what makes you feel alive in the morning, what makes you feel like you can conquer anything. 

Find what brings you transcendence – the act or process of rising above or going beyond your ordinary limits, experiences, or boundaries. It often implies surpassing the usual or typical state to achieve a higher or more advanced level of understanding, awareness, or existence. that goes beyond the physical or material world. Moving beyond personal limitations, fears, or prejudices to attain a greater level of self-awareness, wisdom, or emotional well-being, discovering your personal state of awe.
