Fall Issue 2019

Featured Article

Some say that “unity in diversity” is a pie-in-the-sky concept that is unrealistic in the extreme. It does seem that, in the current state of life on Planet Earth, achieving unity in almost anything is a challenge, whether that be at home, school, church, work, play, or government. The place to begin cultivating unity is really at the grass-roots level—in the home. It may not spread to every member of the extended family, but it can happen for many of them. The featured article for this issue of SynapSez® is entitled “It Can Happen...” With the holiday season coming up, this is a good time to think ahead.... Have fun reading it!

Website Hack

Some of you may know that the Longevity Lifestyle Matters website was hacked. That necessitated moving the content to Taylor’s website, a monumental task that the webmaster was able to complete in only a couple of weeks! Information for both English and Spanish can now be accessed from the main menu:

Longevity Lifestyle Matters (in English)...

Importancia de Estilo de Vida de Longevidad (en español)...

Spanish Translations

The Longevity Lifestyle Matters program materials are now available in Spanish for Spanish-Speaking LLM Certified Facilitators.

Adventures of the Longevity Mystery Club has also been translated into Spanish by Sylvia Altsman and is in process of being published.

Point to Ponder

The subconscious mind is strictly a stimulus-response playback device… the subconscious works only in the “now.” 

—Bruce Lipton, PhD

The subconscious mind, which Candace B. Pert, PhD said included 80 percent of the brain and the entire body, is touted as being a million times faster in terms of processing and triggering behavior than the conscious mind. And because it works only in the “now,” as Dr. Lipton pointed out, it is important to speak to it not only in the present tense but in an affirming style, as well. Tell it what you want it to do. Put that into working memory and avoid talking about what you do not want to have happen. The brain was not designed to “stop” a behavior, especially one that has given you pleasure. The brain was designed to use its considerable power in tandem with willpower to “record” a new behavior and play it back when stimulated to do so. Talk to your subconscious as if it were another person—you—which it is, using your first name and the pronoun you. [“Arlene, the next brain bulletin is ready.”] Then get busy and get it done!
