Tip#1212: The Recipe For Resilience, Perseverance & Indestructible Optimism, Part 18 – Phenomenon

This is Day 174 of the COVID-19 quarantine/social distancing here in Toronto, Canada. 

I had a good week with my mental health thanks to my continued daily practice of positive mindset programing with my reticular activating system (RAS) which I’ve written about before (see Tip#1210 and Tip#831). And some cool, exciting results have been manifesting in my life! 


Finding Serene Nature Trails

For example, one goal was to revitalize in nature but somewhere new and within Toronto. I defined this goal, wrote it down and looked at this goal every day several times a day. Soon I came across a Twitter post by BlogTO about the serene Taylor Creek Trails along with a photo that excited me. Within a week I enjoyed a 9K walk on this new trail with a friend on a beautiful, sunny day! I felt so rejuvenated and re-energized by the quiet green of the forest and soothing sounds breezing through the trees and of the trickling, clear creek streams. 

The Healthiest Canned Fish 

Another example was about wanting to find the healthiest canned fish. This time I googled “healthy canned fish” and came across many articles that I read which was, in itself, a another process that programs the RAS to find even more information. Top of the list was sardines (considered a superfood) so when I started looking at canned sardines in supermarkets like No Frills, Metro and Sobeys that continued to program my RAS. Engaging your RAS is just like using Google but for your brain! 

This led me to being attracted to sardine packaging I really liked by Club de Millionnaires and discovering a type of sardine I’d never heard about called Brisling. I researched it and learned it only lives in clean, icy waters like the Norwegian fjords and contain more nutrients than regular sardines. And they are so delicious I could just eat them out of the can! Read details of health benefits on my Instagram post: Brisling Sardines

All this was just exciting confirmation that the reticular activating system is real and further proof for myself that the power of our mind and brain is a marvel to experience. And when I see films that are classified as fantasy or science fiction I just know that this a perfect tool to feed our imagination for new possibilities in our own lives. Here’s an example of a wonderful film and cinematic role model from the mid 90’s! 

Phenomenon (1996) 

The fantasy, romantic film, Phenomenon, is about a small-town man named George Malley (John Travolta) who is inexplicably transformed into a genius with telekinetic powers. With a fantastic soundtrack of songs, this entertaining story features many memorable scenes and performances from the whole cast including Travolta, Kyra Sedgwick, Forest Whitaker, Robert Duvall, and Jeffrey DeMunn.

I’ve always enjoyed this film when it was first released and over the decades it’s become a marker in my own life of how much I’ve achieved in learning to use the power of my brain. There are so many scenes I’ve loved like of George learning new languages at hyper speed and strategizing how to solve problems quickly and efficiently for his garden and for his friend’s love life. 

I also loved how he used his sensitivity to the energies of the earth to predict earthquakes and find a lost, sick boy through telepathic powers. And then there’s a brilliant scene of George experiencing overwhelming anxieties and used the soothing power of nature’s breezes through trees to calm himself down. This scene just mirrors what anyone can do to alleviate stress. The whole movie itself can be an inspirational reflection and reminder of our inner strengths and potential. 

Fantasy or science fiction films have the ability to inspire us to become more than what we are. They also have cinematic role models to reflect our inner ability to reprogram our beliefs and brains for manifesting solutions for seemingly impossible problems. Find a film today to start revitalizing your brain power and experience new marvels in your life right now!
