I'm going through the motions of the introductory PDF. It's mostly an open ended exercise for myself to see where I stand and which direction my intentions and reasoning end up pointing me.

Introduction - Force Studies

A - Physical Intuitive: 19
B - Emotional Intuitive: 35
C - Mental Intuitive: 41
D - Spiritual intuitive: 25

I agree with the scores via the subsequent descriptions per intuition. For the mental questions I came in at 5xOften, 4xSometimes, and 4xRarely and the much of the description is practically dead on. Drilling resources for information to investigate, understand, and potentially assimilate knowledge into my own psychological simulation of the world has become a past time of mine. I'm usually my harshest critic... but that's mainly because in incidents where others criticize me I need to reflect and investigate to understand what they saw before I can give an honest explanation or apology. Something else that's interesting is that the emotional intuitive explanation pretty well describes the relationship I have with my wife; even if I'm not exactly sure if emotion would be her primary or secondary landing if she took the test. I'll attempt the mental and emotional meditations over the course of the next couple days.

I started my own Intro Thread over in the right area. I have access now. :lol:

I started a jump roping routine this morning using the couch to 5k model as a guide. Unfortunately I got up too late to make it to the ~20 mins, it's a start though.

Physical Training -
1min jumping rope, 90sec walking break: 0525-0540

Mental Training -
Driving/Spanish: 0740-0800 (I've been doing this off and on for a couple weeks already)

Finds of the Day -
Oregon has 6.8% Spanish speaking population, 0.58% German, 0.51% Russian, 0.5% Chinese, 0.3% French, 0.29% Japanese&Korean, 0.12% Arabic, 0.09% Persian and Hindi -1-

20120322 - Thur

Physical Training -
None

Mental Training -
  • Spanish in the car: ~35 minutes. Turned it off on the way home because I wasn't concentrating.
  • I started the introductory packet from the beginning to take notes and do some research this time; IJRS Library, Wookiepedia, and Wikipedia mostly. I made it back to where I was then started turning the intuit meditations into a progression I can memorize.


Spiritual Training -
  • 6mins Mental Intuit Meditation, Notes:
  • **I tried the Mental Intuitive meditation this morning using the mp3 with drums and couldn't seem to get into it. I think I'll need to memorize a simpler version of the meditation journey so I can explore my way towards the creation of the essential atmospheres and feelings. I don't sense through verbal description very well... I've always been the kid who says the craziest and grossest stuff because of the way it affects other people.


Emotional Training -
None

30 min - Physical Fitness
Went swimming with the family for 1.5 hours. I didn't think I did much, maybe ~six laps of the pool and played ball with the exchange students, but I'm sore today so it did something.

Friday - 02120413
Thursday - 02120412


I meant to do the sledge hammer work out but Thursday but I honestly can't remember why I didn't or what I did. Thursday night we started hosting an Austrian exchange student temporarily because his host family had a death in the family and would be out of the country for a month or more. This weekend has been a blur and I didn't have a chance to do any Jedi studies and I'm still a bit wiped out from staying up too late multiple nights.

Wednesday - 20120411
13 min - Jedi Studies
ForceS 101 - 3 min Focus on the Navy Square
  1. I decided to just focus on a 2.5" Navy Blue square of origami paper I stuck to the wall. I figure that the shape didn't matter, let me know if my assumption is wrong.
  2. I did this at about 0510 right after getting up.
  3. I looked at the square focusing on observing it for 3 minutes. I didn't have issues focusing like I did with the black circle in a green square but I did get an inverse after-image in my vision depending on how I was situated toward the square and how long I looked at it. It like I could see a white square shadow imposed behind it. I figure that doesn't mean anything, just some kind of optical occurrence in how my brain was translating what I saw. I was able to keep my mind more focused... I generally felt pretty good, calm, and open when I got up.
Med 101 - 10 min mindfulness meditation
  • Right after focusing on the little square I did my meditation, closing my eyes and focusing on my breath. I thought I did pretty good. I ignored the itches, tightness in my joints which need a good pop if I hold them still for too long, and the cat except for one point when she pawed me with a clawed paw. I had to rub sleepies from my eye at one point, I couldn't ignore that. But I kept track of my breath for almost the whole time and used the darkness of vision to keep my focus off of the various awarenesses and discomforts. Monkey mind was not my issue this morning... monkey body was.
22.75 min - Physical Fitness
5min warm up, dynamic stretching
90s jump rope, 5x75s jump rope, 5x120s pacing

Tuesday - 20120410
None

Monday - 20120409
10.5 min - Jedi Studies
ForceS 101 - Focus on the black dot for 3 min
  • I colored a black dot on green origami paper with a Black Sharpy and stuck it to the wall. I was able to look at it for 3 minutes without looking away but I had to blink often as the black on green was doing weird things to my eyes. I'm not sure if I was looking past the dot or pulling back to see the sheet of paper but I had issues keeping my eyes focused on the dot.
  • I lost track of my breathing a couple times as my mind began to wander, think of what I would say here, the meditation I was about to do, or wondering what people were watching down stairs; that sort of thing.
Meditation 101 - 7.5 min mindfulness meditation - I did these in the evening and my daughter interrupted.
  • I did better at tracking my breathing than I did with the black dot, but my eyes were closed and I was focusing on breathing and controlling my thoughts. I fidgeted quite a bit and peeked at the clock from time to time. I'm not sure why I was so anxious.

This week is going to be a wash. With two exchange students in the house the energy of the household has completely shifted and I'm finding that my priorities have shifted to exploring and developing technical projects. Mainly turning the TV computer into a gaming rig for us all to play on in addition to being there to play videos. I'm getting more interested in reading about AMP programming again and I'm contemplating testing the waters for writing mobile game reviews.

This is a good charge of energy for me, I think, but I look forward to getting back to my meditation and cardio when the Austrian heads to his new host family.
