Managing Yourself During Coronavirus Outbreak: Sleep Well

Proper sleep hygeine is very important especially during a crisis. I learned this while managing a concussion.

Here is a handout about sleep hygeine, which is provided by Sleep Foundation. You can also download applications like “Calm” or listen to Sleep Stories on YouTube. My favourite way of falling asleep is to listen to rain sounds. YouTube has lots of versions of rain sounds including “rain on roof” and “rain in village”. My most loved rain sounds are provided by YouTube user “The Relaxed Guy”. His videos range in length, which helps to relax during different routines. For example, run the 2 hour long video when you are reading a book; and, run 12 hour long video when you are going to bed. Check out his YouTube video “Gentle Night Rain 12 HOURS – Sleep, Insomnia, Meditation, Relaxing, Study“.

Sweet Dreams!

Managing Yourself During Coronavirus Outbreak: Protect The Men

Leslie Young’s article “Why are more men dying of COVID-19?” discusses that mostly men are dying from the Coronavirus. The article states that the exact reason for this is unknown but it is possible that men’s habits like smoking are responsible for this.

To help manage the Coronavirus outbreak, make sure to protect the men around you. Share the article “How To Handle The Coronavirus Outbreak“and the tips provided under the category “Coranavirus” with men who are part of your circle. Make sure they don’t end up doing anything unhealthy due to frustration. Talk to them if they need to talk or direct them to a counselor if the issue is severe. Share this very beneficial article with them, “Thoughts for Men on coping with Social Distancing and Isolation“.

I am hoping that things will slowly go in the right direction this way!

Prediction Within A Prediction: Use Of Mind’s Peripheral Vision

I have received two dreams that each carry two predictions but focus on only one prediction. It feels like noticing things from one’s peripheral vision.

In May 2019, I had a dream after I meditated on Eric Anthamatten and Carl Jung. Soon I had a dream about three skeletons, which I believe are related to New York since Eric’s resume states New York. Read the dream here, Lucid Dream: The Three Skeletons And The Airport.

In Aug 2015, I dreamt of some sort of armed conflict taking place in some region, which I later realized is America. At the beginning of this dream, I saw a Black woman who said that a plague has arrived here (in America). Read the blog post Time Portals Open According To Your Decisions And Intentions.

I thought about these two hints slowly as I learned about the Coronavirus outbreak. According to Worldometer, New York has the highest number of deaths that are caused by Coronavirus. I think together these two dreams are showing a prediction that is hidden inside other predictions. Thus, I believe that the human mind has some sort of peripheral vision built inside.

Managing Yourself During Coronavirus Outbreak: Use Your Sense Of Humour

When I was a child, my uncles used to tickle me a lot—may God bless two of my very funny uncles who have passed away. I felt very safe around them so I used to make sure that they would tickle me. So I had a strong sense of humour when I grew older. Now I use humour but only when I feel safe enough to do so—I think a mix of strong empathy and ENFP personality type dictate this.

I know Coronavirus is here so everyone is jailed in their own houses. I have been holding on as best as I can; but, today I felt that I was going to break down. I mean I am an ENFP. I need people around me otherwise I might get way too frustrated. True! I am living inside a very racist country; but, the human energy means a lot to my brain and soul; and, I know that there are some good people out there. Anyways, I actually realized this about myself a long while ago; and, I also patiently taught myself how to pursue myself to be happy if I get lonely for some reason.

Mimicking is a fun technique that I sometimes use when I am super-bored. Following these steps will help you perform this on your own:

Step 1: Sit or stand in front of a mirror

Step 2: Run a video of your favourite person; for example, a poet, a celebrity, or a friend

Step 3: Mimic that person. If the person you are mimicking is usually too serious, then try messing up while impersonating that person. One way that I mess up my routines is by being silent and just copying their hand gestures.

Laugh out loud! I have learned to mimic some interesting people this way. I have learned their hand gestures, the way they move their mouth or face, and the way they talk or argue. I can sometimes do this properly and other times I laugh at myself while attempting this. Since I am a writer, acting comes natural to me. One day, I pretended to be a Sultan. I tried doing this without a script and it went horribly. But, I had a laugh because I had wrapped my hair up a bit differently in my blue headscarf and was pretending to wear a royal turban of some sort. I sat on my bed; caressed my blanket while pretending it was some sort of expensive silken fabric; and, harassed some petty commoner (an imaginary friend). Like I said, this one was a big mess but it felt so hilarious. Takhliah! (takhliah means “everyone must leave”).

You can utilize your sense of humour in many ways including reading funny comics, pranking your family members, or writing something funny. So give this idea a shot if you desire. Your reward centres should be going on pretty fast!

Dented Thinking Of A Genius

What I am about to narrate to you today is an incredible personal story. The data around me is very different because I am a lucid dreamer, a telepath, and an ENFP genius. I seriously hope nobody gets spooked by this story!

When I was choosing my university, I received a couple of admission letters. I asked myself what I wanted at the end of all this studies and my mind promptly answered, “I want Prestige; thus, I want University of Toronto”. So I chose to study Biological Sciences; I was planning to study Cellular and Molecular Biology after graduating. But, I never did my Master of Science because I felt neglected due to what was going on inside Univeristy of Toronto. Now the next set of things are very surprising!

  1. I was discriminated against while studying at the Uniiversity of Toronto. One of my professors mocked me when I asked him what he really thought of a Research Thesis of mine. He could not read me properly at all. I asked this because I wrote this; and, obviously I loved what I had written. He replied in an aloof and sarcastic manner that this is just one paper. I felt enormous pain when he addressed me like this! Of course! I was new to all this so I must have made some errors as well. But I was a young student back then; and, I deserved to be loved and cherished properly. Furthermore, while I was doing research at The Ramsay Wright Zoological Laboratories, I found out that the female researchers were unhappy because they were not receiving sufficient grants. After all this, I started feeling that even if I got my PhD, I won’t be taken seriously. Eventually, I decided not to complete my Master of Science. Read blog post Canada’s Undiscovered Geniuses. I must comment that I did got admission into York University but I did not say YES to this. From what I have learned by talking to York’s coloured graduates, York University’s Sciences department has a good reputation when it comes to properly integrating coloured students.  As you read the rest of the story, you will realize that all this had to happen before I ended up gaining “Prestige”.
  2. While studying at University of Toronto, I completed a study through which I found it that I had high levels of stereodepth vision, the vision responsible for the feats conducted by surgeons, athletes, and scientists. I discussed this in the blog post, “About My Stereodepth Vision”. Oh, once a Psychology professor told me that there are many kinds of IQs and we cannot just figure out how smart someone is simply by doing an IQ test. I believed him right away simply because I am a very broad minded individual.
  3. As I grew older, I became more and more “out of the box” in nature. I started experiencing lucid dreaming and telepathic encounters, which actually intensified a lot after 9/11 since I was using prayers to protect myself and the weak. I made sure to avoid racist and abusive people because I felt that my brain used to stop functioning in their presence. As I learned about myself further, I realized that I was able to receive dreams that had historic significance. I learned that I could open time portals and move through time to learn something. Read blog post, “Proof That I Can Move Ahead In time By Around Four Years” and “Time Portals Open According To Your Decisions and Intentions“. Truth is that when I received a precognitive dream as a child, I completely forgot about it until I reached a stage in my life where I realized that I could not ignore these signals anymore. Read How Far Ahead In Time Can A Lucid Dreamer Really Go?  to learn about a precognitive dream that I had around 20 years ago and that come true just recently. Reality is that throughout this project, I had no mentors at all. I learned all of this on my own; and, I built my entire website as well as wrote all the content on my own.
  4. Truth is that I predicted that in 2015 a pandemic will hit America. Read blog post, “Proof That I Can Move Ahead In Time By Around Four Years” and “Time Portals Open According To Your Decisions and Intentions“. In my dream, a Black woman stated that a plague has arrived. Plague is a type of pandemic. During my dream, I wondered what sort of plague she was referring to; but, then I chose to use a time portal that showed me the world that was going to be created with the election to Trump. Was the Black woman using the word plague loosely or was she using it based on similarity between plague and Coronavirus. For example, in both cases, some people are willing to market and sell fake products.

I left my studies due to discrimination specifically racism and gender bias. If things stayed on course, then today I would have been working inside a lab learning about Cellular and Molecular Biology. I would have conducted breakthrough research and perhaps I would have saved everyone from Coronavirus. It is all very simple inside my head! So racist or sexist people should know that lots of suffering that everyone including themselves will go through in this world would be created due to discrimination.

As I finish my thinking here, I fully realize that I got what I wanted when I enrolled in University of Toronto. I wanted “prestige” and today I definitely got it. I have belled the cat! If you still do not believe me think about this sequence: I completed the writing for this blog on my own; I had a dream about a plague in 2015; and, I have somehow managed to warn people about what really is going on. Like I said, I got “prestige” just like I promised myself!

Managing Yourself During Coronavirus Outbreak: Using Lists And Setting Goals To Do Something Creative

Your mind is bound to get very hazy during the lockdown. So you need to start a small creative project for yourself. It could be something very personal like catching up with all the friends and family members I had to ignore due to work or it could be a large scale project like a crowdfunding project.

To remove the haze from your mind, create a list of tasks you must complete to execute and finally finish this project. Add deadlines next to tasks or use the Eisenhower Matrix to organize things. Listing things and setting SMART goals will help you develop confidence in yourself so that you may move your life forward while handling the realities associated with the Coronavirus outbreak.

Managing Yourself During Coronavirus Outbreak: Drawing And Coloring Ease Tension

I really wanted to go to the Beauty Salon today; I have been aching for this for days now. I do not want to tear my hair out because I am locked inside! So I have decided to create the series, “Managing Yourself During Coronavirus”.

Around a year ago, I drew this new face while attempting to sketch myself. Check out Drawing A Different Face By Using Your Own Face.

Today I used pencil colors to color it. I used my favourite hair color and lipstick color to color this one.

Now I feel much better! I am not thinking about the Beauty Salon that much; and, I intend to manage my beauty needs on my own this time. Try this technique at home. It helps relax and relieve tension and repeat thoughts.

Who Do I Find Attractive And Why

I still remember rejecting a marriage proposal because the guy was not handsome enough for me. I still remember how once a friend of mine said that good looking guys can’t be trusted—I thought she was confused. Reality is that one reason why I cannot find a good marriage proposal is that I have great looks; its nothing to do with my intelligence. I completed a quiz about what kind of guys I attract and found out that I attract smart men. Since the men who find me attractive are themselves very intelligent, my level of intellect is satisfactory to begin with. Today, I was reading Berit Brogaard’s article “Are We Attracted to People Who Look Like Us?“. This article clearly states that we get attracted to people who look like ourselves or opposite-sex parents. Interesting that humans are choosing faces they are most familiar with!

I have learned through Islam that one must marry someone one is physically attracted to. Of course! one’s preferences matter a lot while deciding whom to marry. So it is very important to know that one should not marry someone one finds repulsive in some ways. There is something interesting I have been noticing! Oh, I can see these things because I am telepathic. My face reflects the face of the people I interact with. So if I dislike someone’s looks—or behaviour—my face does not feel like my regular face.

I am an Empath and an ENFP. As an empath, I would like to be taken very seriously. However, I am a telepath. I can warn you ahead of time what is about to happen if I love you. For instance, I warned a medical student about narcissistic teachers and after one year, he came back and told me that he has encountered such teachers during his first year. Can you believe it? He saw what I warned him about right away! So I don’t hang out with menincluding my relativeswho don’t believe in my telepathic abilities. Read article “15 Things To Remember If You Love An Empath“.

I am an ENFP so I love to feel free. As a result, controlling men who are posing around as smart men won’t ever be able to find me although some of them would attempt to do so because they get attracted to my empathy. A mix of ENFP and Empath is actually very lethal because this is what causes people to rebel and protect the weak. As an ENFP, I love challenging people to see how they will react and behave. This is why I know that an average guy won’t be able to marry me. To add to all of this, I do have unusual whims. For example, I watch dance videos or clips of exciting Sci-Fi, Action, or Fantasy movies like Transformers and Maleficent while listening to some intriguing songs—during this activity, I mute the volume of the dance and movie clips and listen only to songs. Now that my dear is very perplexing to watch. So obviously, the guy who will get attracted me has to be smart enough to understand how my unusual desires work. To learn more about ENFPs, check out 7 Things You Should Know Before You Date An ENFP.

In addition, the guy I will marry will be able to withstand a lot of intelligent torture. Its a simple idea! Good poetry is torture; and, I am an amazing poet. Empathy is one of the best traits required in dating. Combine my empathic nature with my layered ENFP personality type, then the level of torture that is going to be inflicted on daily basis is actually pretty high. So who exactly is going to get attracted to me or to whom I will be attracted to? I don’t know yet; but, I know there is definitely a man out there who will marry me.
