How Champions Are Different Than The Rest

I know from my personal life experiences that champions are very different than the rest—if you observe them up close, you will fully understand a lot of tough things.

When I was younger, I saved my younger brother from being abducted. When I was introduced to the world of Martial Arts for the very first time, I was not shy about walking on a broken foot. My right foot actually broke while I sparred with a much larger sparring partner; my parents weren’t home so I had to walk back. It healed on its own over time although it was infected for a bit. There is still a mark on my right foot; and, it still functions perfectly. When I matured even further, I walked again while enduring further pain. Around five years ago, I contracted a lethal Urinary Tract Infection and another related complication. In 2018, I ran through the anaconda-like corridors of Algonquin College with these injuries as well as feet that were swollen due to edema. Most of my class fellows learned about my medical condition because they could see me in pain sometimes. I had to struggle to manage my assignments, studies, and doctors’ appointments; but, I was in the final stages of healing because I had been fighting this condition for some years now. At the end, I won this battle as my infection fully healed; and, I was placed on the Dean’s List for Event Management program. From this ordeal, I learned the significance of having a dependable team in achieving difficult and memorable tasks.

This is why I can relate to champions, such as Indian track and field sprinter Milkha Singh, who are not like the usual Hollywood/Bollywood/Lollywood protagonists; but, who have real struggles that make them heroic in nature. And, they are in tune with their inner self, their inner child. As an ENFP, that is my best gift. Becoming a champion simply means learning and understanding their behaviour; and, then creating similar behaviour that is unique to you but still resembles your champions’ behaviour.

Why I Doodle?

My answer derived from my experiences is that I doodle to get less distracted, less stressed, and to laugh. According to Theresa Fisher’s article, “Studies Show That People Who Doodle Have An Advantage Over the Rest“, doodling allows one to retain information, improve focus, prevent boredom, and manage stressful moments.

When I look at my doodles, I just feel a sense of accomplishment. I have often wondered why I feel this way—its like one of those magical moments one get when one is looking at one’s heroes or crushes. According to Matt Ellis’s article, “The meaning of doodles: when a squiggle isn’t just a squiggle”, some of history’s most influential people used to doodle—lucid dreamer Carl Jung’s book “The Red Book” has doodle art. So my dream of changing people through my writing, poetry, and lucid dreams isn’t just a dream. It is an actual historic reality!

I learned doodling on my own—I was doing this even before I learned the word “doodle” and benefits of doodling. I followed a rather creative process, which included doodling with the help of my imagination; learning how to draw so that I was able to play with various shapes and faces; using someone’s face to create a doodle of a different face; and, doodling on hands with Mehandi (henna). If you want to learn this art, visit Skillshare. Don’t forget to learn the meaning behind your doodles. Its more fun reading into yourself this way!

The Date That Almost Blew My Cover!

I had a lucid dream date today. I was in odd place that looked like a roof. There was paint-like material everywhere; and, you could mistake it for an ocean. Two individuals were putting a rectangular door-like object up. They had erected it in the middle of the roof. The paint or ocean was fascinating because it fell around forming spikes and rays. I felt a bit bored after watching this display so I decided to fly out of a rather large window. I placed my face next to it and willed it to open. It opened easily; and, I slowly looked down. I could clearly see the roads, buildings, and people. I was not afraid of heights but the wind felt so cold. The wind hit against my body rather harshly; therefore, I told myself that I could not fly today. “Perhaps, I can make some sort of safety bubble around myself”, I thought. After hearing this inquiry, I implored myself, “Safety bubble! How will I make it?” Impulsively, I told myself to jump. Despite my fear of getting way too chilled, this actually worked! I could see my shadow figure flying by checking out the shadow it was forming on the road. At one point, I became too frightened of the icy wind and started staring at the road.

Soon, this dream segment got disturbed; and, now I was back inside some building. The building had spacious rooms; and, it was built like any beautiful hotel or historic place. It felt as serene as colours beige and blue! I started feeling better as I opened the door and walked outside. I was now inside a very busy business hub of some sort. The moving cars and pedestrians crowded this region; and, one would almost forget to check out the skyscrapers that stubbornly serenaded the sky. I walked towards the traffic lights but felt distracted by a handsome man who had just walked out of an office. I ran towards him and held his arm. He blurted as he quickly read the intention s behind this move, “Oh! So you want to pursue me,” he stated in a frank manner. My inner self actually nagged me after I eventually woke up from this dream, “Safety Bubble was the cue!”

The dream continued although I felt very surprised at his delightful but untimely comment. So I said less to him and dragged him towards the building and away from the rest of the people. I felt that he had blown my cover because I did not want to date without a party and analysis; and, from the very beginning, he had said things way too truly. Thus, my inner self restlessly shifted to a phantom thought that I had felt within. Faces of several historic figures appeared and dissappered in front of me—he loves history. I imagined that this lovely man who was now next to me was watching all of this too; but, I was not so sure. Then an event exploded nearby and we checked it out as well! The face of a famous historic figure remained on a very large screen while the audience clapped and roared. I felt transfixed on their shadows: some of which were thin; some were denser; and, the rest were just dancing. I watched the crowd acting up as I felt scared that this particular figure was eventually going to disappear too. Surprisingly, this one stayed until I opened my eyes. The colour that was used to paint this last figure kept changing as the crowd went crazy. As I woke up, the colour changed to yellow shade that was similar to my room’s colour.

Some Telepathic Encounters Are Like Inaudible Sounds

Only sometimes, I feel strong urges to react to something; hear music that comes from human bodies; get tugs at my heart; lucid dreams that show the truth or future; and voices that guide me. All of these experiences are inherent to telepathic experiences. Rarely, I hear sounds that can be described as “invisible” or “inaudible”. In reality, that I don’t hear them at all but I get other signals that tell me that something is up. For example, I might feel like turning on one of my favourite songs due to “unknown reasons”. This “unknown reason” magnifies itself as a state of mind where I am thinking about and working on something else.

Actually, this happened today so I noticed it! I was thinking about my lucid dreams, writing, and an event when I browsed through some music videos. After listening to one or two videos, I clicked on a music video that I had introduced to my brother. Then, I switched off the music because I had started missing him; I checked my messages right away. My younger brother had just sent me a message. I felt so happy after reading it. Telepathy is a very powerful and resilient thing to experience.

Emotional Support Produces Better Results

When I was younger, I studied only one English Literature course at University of TorontoI completed a Major in Biological Sciences and Double Minors in Philosophy and Mathematics. As a student, I was blessed because I was close to some of my Biology, Philosophy, Maths, and English professors. I used to walk with a Philosophy professor as well as an English professorthey did not mind me right next to me. They were both very nice men and were much older than me. On our way from North building to South building, I used to pair up with these two professors. The walk is like 25 minutes so it is very boring walking alone. Pairing up with my professors after class helped me because it was easier for me to think back to the lectures this way. Both of my professors were very protective of me just like they were towards other students. No wonder I grew up so focused! My ongoing attraction towards English and Philosophy is directly tied to the additional emotional support provided by these men. They used to spend the most time answering my questions because they knew that I was going to ask them the most questionsI enjoyed their courses more because they were more interesting to begin with.

When I grew older, I changed into what these professors were trying to create; i.e. a creative, fresh, and inquisitive mind that asked the right questions and finds the right answers; and, someone who would listen to herself before deciding on something. As I matured, I realized that I was performing better when I was working close to those who chose to love and protect me; otherwise, I was just running away faster. Read article  “Why offering emotional support in the workplace can lead to increased productivity” to find out why I am always writing, thinking, and consistently and patiently pursing my goals.

Reading Into Clues Of Abnormal Psychology Offered By “Gotham”

I am still on Season 1 of Gotham; I have watched it half way through so far. Nygma works for the Forensic department of the G.C.P.D. team of Gotham. So far Nygma has been acting very friendly, cooperative, and flirtatious. I used to laugh every time he would throw a riddle. I thought that it just what some bored cops until Episode 15, “Scarecrow”. When Penguin re-opens Fish’s night club under his name, he visits the G.C.P.D. to give an invitation to the Jim. Jim Gordon saved his life and he is the only honest guy Penguin really knows. We can see Penguin’s struggle with the good and bad as we watch him desperately attempting to tie a bond with Jim Gordon.

When Penguin is inside the G.C.P.D.’s office, something really weird happens. Nygma loses his usual composure and stalks Penguin. He then stands really close to Penguin and talks to him; Penguin eventually gets frustrated and asks him to step back. Nygma complies while smiling in a cunning manner. Then, he says something very weird, which is how I nailed that Nygma is actually “The Riddler”; if I didn’t hear him say this, I would have continued believing that the real Riddler is just a copycat or some twisted friend of Nygma. Nygma’s comments are actually very creepy! He said to Penguin, “You know male emperor Penguins keep their eggs warm by balancing them on their feet? Isn’t that neat?” After and while saying these very odd words, he keeps smiling at the fearsome Penguin in a very strong manner. Also note that he chose to convey his sentiments to Penguin at the time Penguin was trying to create another precious and rare memory with Jim Gordon. In essence, Nygma ruined one of Penguin’s happiest memory on purpose. After watching him exert control on Penguin like this, I realized that this cop with real control issues is actually the villain “The Riddler”.

“Gotham” is very beautiful to watch especially if you have any interest in criminology and abnormal psychology. I am studying this series for my upcoming novel “She: The Mirror“. I cannot understand some of my experiences that have occurred in Canada without learning about such content. Canada is actually a very abusive country; and, many abusers and brainwashers are sitting in academic places, mainstream media, offices, and government.

Shadow Figures of Some Lucid Dreamers or Creatives

I have been experimenting with my telepathic abilities during my spare time. I have discovered a huge game; and, I have realized that in this game, other creatives and lucid dreamers are very important.

Several members of my Rajputian family are very creative people; and, some of them are also lucid dreamers. Over time, I have learned to see the projected bodies of some of my family members. They appear like shadow figures that I can see during the day; and, they tell me things like which part of my place that person is going to stand in the future or whether they are thinking of me or not. Its a cute deal! Below are some simple tricks I use to achieve this level.

Type 1: Shadow Figures That Appear While I Am Awake

I openly asked deceased Carl Jung to connect with me. I wanted to connect with him because he had appeared in one of my lucid dreams and enlightened me. I have felt a strong connection with him because I like Psychology and Supernatural as well, which are the two things that Carl adored. After reading, thinking, or dreaming about Carl Jung, I have sometimes clearly seen some shadow figures that look like my family members. Once, I kept seeing a female figure walking down the stairs; in reality, nobody was there and I could see this as well. Some minutes later, one of my family members walked down the stairs. Oh! only two of family members’ shadow figures appear without initiating any sort of connection with Carl Jung. Maybe, they have stronger shadow figures.

Type 2: Shadow Figures That Appear While I Am Asleep

I can clearly see how I can dance with some of my heroes and the rest of the loved ones through my dreams. I think my mind is unconsciously filtering personality types and intelligence levels to create lucid dreams. The creative dreams I receive after reading books or watching videos by my heroes don’t just revolve around their dream characters. For example, just recently, I had a very creative dream because I slept while holding my favorite author’s book—I feel more drawn to fantasy dreams that transport me to magical worlds after touching or reading his books. What if this was a meshing dream?

Type 3: Shadow Figures That Appear As Tunes

I get very clear music inside my minds when I connect with creative people—this happens when I am awake or asleep. Read blog post “‘Gotham’! I Am Getting That Tick In My Head” to learn how my mental music changes when creative people including lucid dreamers are around.

In conclusion, this ability is very beautiful; and, it creates CRAZZZZYYYY results at the end. Like all other human abilities, this power has a limitation. Most of the time and/or depending on your mood, it can only be used with some and not all lucid dreamers and creatives. I am sharing this here because I need you to learn about this faculty so you may learn how to induce this mental state in order to achieve stability and prosperity. Remember that you are opening your inner self through lucid dreams so what will open depends on who you really are. Read article “This Is Why People Are Intimidated By You, Based On Your Personality Type” to learn about your super-power. For instance, As an ENFP, I am a dreamer who believes in the following:

Persistence: This showed when I tagged and protected an abused women by using different dreams. I have shared only one dream through my blog post, “Knights of the Flying Carpet”,  but there were several more.

Undying Hope: I worked on “Forgotten Femmes” Facebook group even when I knew really less or even when I was unemployed. That is because I believed in the women and the fact that our society will one day become a better one.

A Spirit That Cannot Be Destroyed: My lucid dreams protect me from lots of things like depression, anxiety, PTSD, or poverty.

I Create My Own Box: My dreams are allowing me to create my new social identity, which links into my most precious dreams. When I was barely out of my teens, I came across some Canadian activists; they made sure to introduce me to several things including articles of Noam Chomsky. Now that some of my lucid dreams have been posted, I am able to connect with some great names with the hope of teaching them how to use lucid dreams to create a better society.

I Can Connect With Almost Anyone: I have not tried this a lot through dreams because I enjoy spending time around my loved ones more. But, I definitely get the urge to just roam around in the dream world. This ability showed when I dreamt of Che Guvra; a random neighbor or family friendDavid and Gillian from X-Files; an outdoor contractor; and, a journalist from “The Mantle”.

So if you could read yourself this way through dreams, what exactly would you end up painting?

“Gotham”! I Am Getting That Tick In My Head

My novel lucid mind plays a funny rhythm every time I come across someone or something exceptional—its different for each case. Once it played this tune with X-Files; I even play with m favourite charcaters or sets when I become lucid. And, this time my lovely brain is playing this tick every time I finish watching series Gotham—I have to make sure not to watch dirty scenes though so that my funny tune may play properly. This tune I feel after watching “Gotham” is so real. It’s like all my dream characters start singing some sort of song during the day. It’s a thrilling experience! I know that some mastermind artists and speakers receive enlightenment through tunes that activate inside their minds after a timeless encounter. This odd music is the reason why I plan to read this series slowly. The script for “Gotham” is available at Springfield! Springfield!

Advice to all writers and poets: Stay close to the things that are causing that odd rhythm inside my brain. Fight to get close if you need to. After close encounter, start writing.

Documentary “Fatal Silence” Reveals The Realities of Domestic Abuse Faced By Muslim Women

Documentary “Fatal Silence” was screened in Feb 20, 2019 at University of Western Ottawa. It shows the struggles faced by a Canadian-Lebanese Muslim woman, Sonia El Birani. She was finally killed by her husband who was diagnosed with clinical depression and paranoia. This happened while some of her male family members stayed quiet and while the local masjid offered a group dynamics that silenced the victims of abuse.

I feel very discouraged after reading all of this. I run a Facebook group “Forgotten Femmes” to offer free support to female victims of abuse. I do not observe things in silence because deep down I know that this is not going to work. So far, I have helped 5 abused women including myself. This assistance includes helping someone find a job or co-op placement, counselling, emotional support, job hunt aid, and helpful articles about Lucid Dreaming. Some issues that I have dealt with include help with sexual assault, domestic abuse, cyberstalking, stalking, workplace harassment, and intimate partner abuse. I am just one volunteer who is attempting to make a difference in this world by volunteering and motivating others to volunteer for the “Buddy System”, which was briefly explained to me by a lawyer—I am learning as I voyage through this world of abuse. I have fought hard to learn whatever I currently know; and, I intend to keep fighting for this cause.

Things are not easy for women although it’s way easier for men regardless of their religion. For example, even I was harassed for wearing the headscarf by some of my family members—it’s a very long story. However, throughout my life, I have seen Muslim men who pray at masjids and go home to abuse the women of their households. How easy are things for them! The documentary mentioned above definitely does justice when it points out harmful group dynamics that are being played out at some masjids. For instance, a Muslim woman told me that it is up to my parents to help me find a marriage proposal; this way, she chose to stay quiet and neglect my needs. The Mulsim community is simply not there when we need them. But, a lot of them are always there when some Christian or Jew brothers or politicians decide to address them. I have even come across or heard of three Canadian-Muslim female speakers/activists who went through severe sexual harassment due to domestic abuse. Believe me, I heard one story from an Indian girl—the coverage here is really that thorough.

Instead, there is a need for those around victims of domestic violence to step up and find constructive ways to offer support. Source: Fatal Silence: Documentary Reflects on the Murder of Lebanese Canadian Sonia El Birani.

I must end this post by saying thanks to all men and women (professionals including poets, writers, activists, and journalists) who have offered me any sort of support or recognition while I attempt to complete daily adventures of my life. They are doing exactly what this post is asking them to do; i.e., stepping up to offer support in a constructive manner.
