What Are NFTs

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

NFTs provide a certificate of ownership of a digital object for the buyer, which also protects its value for future transactions. A report by Coindesk states artists can sell their art digitally to a global audience that not only allows them to get a greater cut of the profit but programme royalties as well. Gamers can also become owners of in-game items and even earn money from them. It adds that a majority of NFT tokens were built using two Ethereum token standards – ERC-721 and ERC-1155.

Issue: Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs)

Summary: NFTs have gone mainstream in what some have called a new “gold rush.” An NFT sold for almost $70 million at a Christie’s auction last month, NFTs of basketball video highlights have generated hundreds of millions of dollars in sales on the NBA Top Shot platform, and NFTs even were the subject of a skit on a recent episode of Saturday Night Live. Some consider them a fad or a bubble, citing the almost $600,000 sale of an image of an animated flying cat with a pop-tart body that anyone can download from the internet for free. But in one form or another, NFTs are here to stay. Even if the market matures and interest wanes in some unconventional pieces of digital art, NFTs will continue to offer a significant potential revenue stream for artists and entities in the film and television, music, and online gaming industries, among many others. We highlight below some of the emerging legal and policy issues related to NFTs, which include intellectual property law, profit participation issues, securities law, and even climate change.

What do the music group Megadeth, former University of Iowa basketball player Luka Garza, and New York City track and field center The Armory have in common? In the span of 24 hours earlier this month, each of them entered the rapidly expanding NFT market. They joined a number of artists and entertainers who have led the charge in selling NFTs. As film studios and other entities with large content libraries consider following suit, they will need to consider a number of deeply rooted legal issues against a relatively new technological backdrop.

I. Background
There are widely varied understandings of NFTs and related issues concerning tokens and blockchain technology. While many of our readers are familiar with these terms, a brief introduction is helpful to frame the issues that follow.

A. WHAT ARE NFTS AND WHAT IS THE BLOCKCHAIN?
An NFT, or “non-fungible token,” is a unique unit of data stored on a public ledger of transactions called a blockchain. The unique data could represent an image, an electronic deed to a piece of property, or a digital ticket for a particular seat at a sporting event. In contrast to these “non-fungible” tokens, cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ether—just like U.S. dollars, British pounds and other “fiat” government-issued currencies—are fungible; one penny in your pocket has the same intrinsic value as the penny under your couch cushion.

Today, NFTs generally reside on the Ethereum blockchain, which also supports, among other things, the cryptocurrency Ether—the second largest cryptocurrency in terms of market capitalization and volume after Bitcoin. While other blockchains can have their own versions of NFTs, right now Ethereum is the most widely used (though NBA Top Shot uses the Flow blockchain).

But what is a blockchain? As noted above, it is an electronic database or ledger showing a history of transactions. Each transaction is represented by an entry into the electronic ledger and multiple ledger entries are ordered in data batches known as “blocks” to await verification on the network. New blocks are added after the current block reaches its data limit. The blocks are connected using cryptography: each block contains a “hash” (a sort of coded electronic signature linking it to the previous block), which is how the blockchain gets its name.

A key feature of the Ethereum blockchain that distinguishes it from a database one might have at a business or law firm is that the blockchain is decentralized across a community of servers. Data is not stored in any one location or managed by any particular body. Rather, it exists on multiple computers simultaneously, with network participants holding identical copies of the ledger reflecting the encrypted transactions.

That is why blockchains are touted as both verifiable and secure. It is similar to the tracking details showing each step in a package’s journey from the shipper to its final delivery destination. Unlike the tracking details provided by a shipping company, however, on the blockchain no one person can alter that record to change the encrypted data without the network’s users noticing and rejecting the fraudulent version. And if any one computer system fails, there are duplicate images of the tracking details on the blockchain ledger available on other computers around the world.

B. WHAT DO YOU GET WHEN YOU BUY AN NFT?
While an NFT is unique, it is important to keep in mind what that unique digital item actually is. In most cases the NFT is a digital identifier recording ownership, not—to borrow an example from the above—the actual image of the pop-tart cat. What amounts to your “receipt” is reflected in the blockchain, but the image file itself resides elsewhere.

This has to do with blockchain storage limitations and costs. The digital image itself theoretically can be stored in metadata on the blockchain, but in the vast majority of cases it is hosted on a regular website or the decentralized InterPlanetary File System (IPFS). The identifier is logged on the blockchain, but if the image is taken down from its non-blockchain location—say, because it violates someone’s copyright—the NFT could end up being a unique digital path to a closed door (even if there may be seemingly identical “copies” of the digital asset elsewhere). The immutable purchase record would remain on the blockchain, but the original image might not be viewable.

Almost uniformly, the NFT transfer conveys an interest in a licensed copy while copyright ownership of the underlying image or song is not transferred. The NFT may be in a limited edition and it may have some additional perceived value because it is officially authorized by the copyright holder or originated from the address of the copyright holder. But while the underlying copyright can be transferred when the NFT is sold or licensed, typically it isn’t. The terms and conditions of an NFT platform may reveal the limits of what actually is being transferred and how it might be used.

Under NBA Top Shot’s terms, for example, the purchaser who obtains a license to a “Moment” cannot use it for a commercial purpose, modify it, or use the image alongside anything the NBA considers offensive or hateful. An NFT platform that controls the image file is able to remove that file from its platform.

* * *

Monetization strategies for NFTs are constantly evolving, so one cannot generalize and say that all NFTs fall in one legal bucket or another. An NFT can be fair use of a copyright or it can violate it. An NFT likewise could be a simple collectible or it may be offered in such a way to convert it into a security subject to myriad regulations and disclosure requirements. It depends on the NFT. But as the market evolves, complicated questions will need to be answered by NFT creators, platforms, and, potentially, courts.

II. Intellectual Property
Any NFT platform must be particularly focused on the intellectual property rights underlying the NFTs stored, sold, or licensed on the platform. A single NFT may include various copyrightable elements, including a video clip and any accompanying music. Whereas the platform may be able to invoke a statutory liability protection with respect to some potential claims—like defamation—certain intellectual property claims are not precluded.

Specifically, Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act of 1996 shields certain online service providers from liability for hosting content that someone else created. In particular, Section 230(c)(1) states that “No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider.”

To the extent Section 230 applies to a particular NFT platform, the law’s broad protection still has carve-outs. Among other things, it does not apply to “any law pertaining to intellectual property.” Courts have different interpretations of the scope of Section 230’s reference to “intellectual property.” In Perfect 10 v. CCBill, 488 F.3d 1102 (9th Cir. 2007), the Ninth Circuit ruled that Section 230 permitted claims under federal intellectual property laws but preempted state intellectual property claims alleging a violation of the plaintiff’s right of publicity. In Atlantic Recording Corp. v. Project Playlist, Inc., 603 F. Supp. 2d 690 (S.D.N.Y. 2009), a Southern District of New York court reached the opposite conclusion, holding that the “intellectual property” carve-out extended beyond intellectual property claims under federal law to include state-law claims.

Whether or not an NFT platform would be subject to potential liability for violating someone’s state-law right in her or his name and likeness, federal intellectual property law still would apply. And offering an NFT that potentially infringes a copyright could result in liability for the platform if, for example, it does not take the necessary steps under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. That risk is heightened for some platforms given how easy it is to tokenize someone else’s work. Speculators can turn any digital image into an NFT that they can then try to sell, even if the original creator does not agree to that use or even know about it.

Studios and other intellectual property rights holders will need to be especially vigilant in protecting their intellectual property—and NFT platforms likewise will need to promptly remove content if a copyright owner notifies it of an infringement—as the market for small pieces of content expands.

III. Profit Participations
Especially in the current NFT environment, it is not difficult to imagine the potential value of tokenized iconic moments from movies and television. Of course, there would be a number of contractual issues for a rightsholder to navigate, which would vary from deal to deal. Valuable clips might come from movies dating back long before the advent of NFTs, the internet, or even computers. The relevant agreements certainly would not address NFTs, but even analogous provisions might be difficult to identify. Agreements may refer to “clips,” for example, but typically a clip is used to promote the full program or film rather than to be monetized on its own.

Depending on what it depicts, an NFT might not be a “clip” at all. Again using NBA Top Shot as an example, a “Moment” is not just a short video excerpt showing a pass or dunk; it is a package of on-court video, still photographs, digital artwork, and game information. Contracts would need to be analyzed to determine if the NFT should be categorized as a clip, a derivative production, merchandising, promotional material, or something else, with potential consequences on the calculation of gross receipts and any corresponding rights to profit participations or Guild royalties.

Exclusivity provisions in film or television licenses to third parties might bar or limit a studio from “minting” an NFT from a work in its library. Other considerations might also limit a rightsholder’s willingness to enter the NFT space. With vast libraries of well-known and high‑quality content, however, studios are better positioned than most to take advantage of the increased interest and marketability of discrete portions of a film or program.

IV. Securities Law
Particularly in light of the SEC’s increased focus on cryptocurrencies, including its recent lawsuit accusing Ripple Labs Inc. and two of its executives of engaging in an unregistered “digital asset securities offering,” anyone involved in marketing an NFT should give careful consideration to whether the NFT is a security under U.S. law.

This should be of particular concern to the celebrities marketing their own NFTs. Several years ago, in response to celebrity endorsements for cryptocurrency Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs), the SEC warned that “[a]ny celebrity or other individual who promotes a virtual token or coin that is a security must disclose the nature, scope, and amount of compensation received in exchange for the promotion.”[1] A failure to do so would be “a violation of the anti-touting provisions of the federal securities laws.”[2] The same principle would apply to NFTs, with the key question being whether an NFT is a security. This issue has significant bearing on the NFT platform as well. If an NFT is a security, the offeror must follow securities law disclosure requirements and restrictions on who may invest.

The term “security” in U.S. securities laws includes an “investment contract” as well as other instruments like stocks and bonds. Both the SEC and federal courts often use the “investment contract” analysis to determine whether unique instruments, such as digital assets, are securities subject to federal securities laws.

To determine whether a digital asset has the characteristics of an investment contract, courts apply a test derived from the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in SEC v. W.J. Howey Co., 328 U.S. 293 (1946). Under that Howey test, federal securities laws apply where

there is an investment of money or some other consideration,
in a common enterprise,
with a reasonable expectation of profits,
to be derived from the efforts of others.
Again, it would depend on the NFT, but transactions that resemble a fan buying a collectible likely would not be securities under this test. The notion that an NFT is non-fungible also makes it less likely to be a security.

Nevertheless, the NFT market is a creative one. Many NFTs, for example, are configured through the “smart contracts”—which are essentially computer programs—to automatically pay out royalties to the digital artwork’s original creator with every future sale of the NFT on that platform; the artist could package those royalty rights for sale to potential investors.

NFT issuers also can sell fractional interests in NFTs or groups of NFTs. As prices for some NFTs climb into the stratosphere, this approach becomes more appealing to potential buyers who want a piece of the NFT but are unwilling or unable to pay for the whole thing. According to recent statements by SEC Commissioner Hester Peirce, however, doing so increases the likelihood that the NFT would be deemed a security under the Howey test.[3] That likelihood grows where the NFT issuer or a third party claim to be able to help increase the NFT’s value.

V. Climate Change
A major issue that has arisen related to NFTs— and cryptocurrency generally—is their believed effect on the environment. Articles abound comparing the energy consumption of the Ethereum blockchain to entire countries. An analysis by Cambridge University asserts that what it calls the “Bitcoin network” uses more energy than Argentina.[4] NFTs thus have proven somewhat controversial, with one online marketplace for digital artists dropping its plans to launch an NFT platform after backlash that included an artist labeling NFTs an “ecological nightmare pyramid scheme.”[5]

Some contend that these ecological concerns are exaggerated and misleading, noting that NFTs themselves do not cause carbon emissions. As one platform wrote in a recent blog post, “Ethereum has a fixed energy consumption at a given point of time.”[6] The carbon footprint of the Ethereum blockchain would be the same if people minted more NFTs or stopped minting them altogether. But even the post acknowledges that “[i]t is true that Ethereum is energy intensive.”[7]

The crypto energy consumption issue relates to how blockchain technology currently operates. To validate a transaction—and engender trust in a system that is not backed by any central bank or other government authority—the blockchain network relies on a method called “Proof of Work.” The hashing function described above that allows the blocks to be chained together requires complex mathematical equations that only powerful computers can solve. “Miners” must solve these equations to add a new block to the chain. As incentive to solve the mathematical puzzles, the miner receives a reward of new tokens or transaction fees.

The energy costs to complete the hash functions under the Proof of Work model can be high, with miners using entire data centers to compete to solve the puzzles first and garner the reward. To mitigate any environmental effects, mining sites may increasingly rely on renewable energy and “stranded” energy, which is surplus energy created, for example, by excess power that some hyrdroelectric dams around the world generate during rainy seasons.

Another option, at least for the Ethereum blockchain, is moving to a “Proof of Stake” model. Rather than relying on miners using significant amounts of electricity in a race to solve an equation the fastest, the Proof of Stake model involves validators of transactions who are assigned randomly via an algorithm. These validators also have to commit some of their own cryptocurrency, giving them a “stake” in keeping the blockchain accurate.

Reports indicate that Ethereum may move to the Proof of Stake model as soon as this year.[8] Doing so would decrease energy consumption associated with NFTs, allow more transactions per second than in the Proof of Work model, and seemingly remove (or at least mitigate) an apparent drag on the willingness of some to embrace NFTs.

At the same time, one recent article noted what a crypto-mining finance company executive called the “‘inherent security issue of using the native tokens of a blockchain to decide the future of those tokens or the blockchain.’”[9] If the value of the tokens fall, the value of a validator’s stake falls along with it. The validator then has less to lose if they decide to propose an incorrect transaction or otherwise misbehave.

Many people use quantum shifts to alter their realities and step into a better version of themselves. In this article, I’ll guide you through the process of making quantum shifts.
Many people use quantum shifts to alter their realities and step into a better version of themselves. In this article, I’ll guide you through the process of making quantum shifts.

What are quantum shifts?
The word quantum implies something sudden and significant. But quantum shifts are more about creating a necessary amount of energy – vibration – that allows that which you desire to co-exist in the same vibrational state with you.

 

You need to reach a certain threshold of energy to magnetize what you desire. Intro LISTEN TO THE MUSIC HERE —-

 

Quantum shifts take you from one reality into a parallel dimension where what you desire already exists. Although we all shift our realities constantly, the differences are so subtle that we don’t even notice them.

However, we can also completely rewrite our vibrational resonance, which leads us to the version of ourselves that possesses the skills or lifestyle we want.

 

During the quantum shifts, you jump onto a timeline with a different frequency.

 

At any given moment, we vibrate with a specific frequency. This frequency attracts situations and people in our lives. Quantum shifts are vibrational shifts that take you to a new state of frequency in which you can achieve what you want. There are infinite versions of you in parallel realities. If you’re interested in this topic, you can read another article on quantum shifting.

 

During the quantum shifts, you alternate your energetic state to such a degree that you align yourself energetically with a new reality.

 

By making a vibrational shift, you can tap into any version of you. Think about it like you’d have two energetic bubbles. One represents the reality where you are now. The other bubble contains something that you desire. When you make quantum shifts, you let those two bubbles merge. So your reality merges with the desired reality. In the moment of quantum shifts, your vibration is identical with the frequency of what you want.

 

Quantum shifts to a better version of you
The most valuable benefit of quantum shifts is to help us step into a better version of ourselves. You can tap into any version of you that already possesses what you’d like to master.

Over the summer, I worked with a male client who wanted to step into his power. He had lacked will power and didn’t trust his intuition. Whenever he had made a choice, he immediately second-guessed himself. Because he had been misaligned with his power, he was unable to make a breakthrough in his business. Which, in turn, made him doubt himself even more.

Together we first cleared out the energy from all the times he had doubted himself because he still carried it in his energetic field. We found out his soul’s plan for this lifetime regarding him and his power. And then we made quantum shifts into the confident version of himself.

Suddenly, the old story of who he is was disappearing, and he started taking actions aligned with his soul and inner power. As a result, he grew into a better version of himself, and he doesn’t resonate with low self-esteem any longer.

 

Quantum shifts shouldn’t be about wishing to wake up in a new reality and have a perfect life.

 

They’re about growing into our potential and becoming better versions of ourselves. We’re here on Earth to learn and grow, and quantum shifts can be one of the tools we can do that.

A better version of self means that you master some aspect of yourself. Like my client who changed from a man who didn’t feel worthy of his dreams into a man who now knows his value and takes actions from that space.

 

5 way how to shift your reality fast
Before we jump in, I just want to remind you that everything in your life should be done in alignment with your higher self. Quantum shifts should NOT take you off your path. They should help you to embrace your path even more. So if in this lifetime your calling was to uplift others, you may not be allowed to shift into a reality where you win a lottery and stop being the light for others.

Quantum shifts don’t deprive you of learning your lessons, but they can make it faster and more profound. The below process happens in the meditative state. I recommend connecting with your heart chakra before starting. Because the heart chakra can increase its energetic field, and it’s this energy that actually makes the quantum shifts.

If you like to receive more guidance on how to activate your heart chakra, you can download my guided meditation album “Connect with Your Soul.”

I also recommend you to start with smaller quantum shifts. Choose some smaller change first that will convince you that this works.

Intro LISTEN TO THE MUSIC HERE —-

1. Who do you want to become?
Before making any quantum shifts, you need to decide who you want to become. Which version of you do you wish to embody?

Imagine the version of you into the greatest details. How do you look like? Where do you live? What do you do, and who do you have by your side?

You’re now putting a seed into the biofield and communicate which vibration you wish to embody.

 

2. Observe
There is a reason why this version of you has the life that you desire. In some aspects, they’re different from you. They make choices that you may be scared to make. This version of you also thinks and feels differently.

In which ways are you different from now?

When you go into a relaxed state, close your eyes, and observe how you are different in a parallel reality. There is a certain vibration, catch it. Feel it. Understand it.

 

3. Ask
The next step of quantum shifts is to ask this version of you how they created what you desire. Ask for guidance, and stay fully present without pushing your ideas on what the answers should be.

Stay in a receptive mode, remember that you’re not the active particle now, you’re listening.

 

4. Merge
After you receive guidance, it’s time to merge with the desired version of you. You can simply imagine that you, from the parallel reality, enters your body. Then feel how this vibration has changed you.

While merging, you bring back their vibrational signature into now. Keep your eyes still closed for a while and feel the new vibration in your whole system. Decide that this is the new you and let it guide you in making choices that will create the reality you want.

You can also write down any recommendations that your other self had given you.

Intro LISTEN TO THE MUSIC HERE —-

5. Embody
The last step of making quantum shifts is to embody the new vibration. Decide to step into the new energy every morning again.

Recommit to your intention and strengthen the new frequency in your body. Take aligned actions from the space of the new version of you.

How To Shift Your Reality?

Shifting reality?? Is reality shifting real? Does it sound like some sci-fi subject to you? A much more sober question would be, can we change our reality? Can we change the experience of life?

Oh! Hell yes…

It is possible.

But, what does it mean by shifting reality?

It means changing the reality around you by changing your perspective about life. From my own life, I have seen how life could change, just by changing our perspective.

In this blog post, we are going to discuss and unravel the mysteries behind reality and how this can change anytime if we decide to do so.

 

Caution: Read slowly one sentence at a time, just don’t believe me blindly, try to understand the subject by using your own experience.

Before I dish out all the tasty methods of shifting reality, we need to understand the concept of reality. No question can get as fascinating as this one. what is reality? who creates reality? these are big questions. let me give my perspective on this.

Before that,

let me quickly list out the most effective methods or reality shifting exercises for you, I will elaborate on them later one by one.

So, how to shift your reality fast?

  1. Identify who you are and what you want?
  2. Set your life’s purpose
  3. Learn to empty your mind so that you can take new mental programs
  4. Use Affirmations frequently
  5. Use the power Imagination and Creative Visualization
  6. Use the Power of Self-talk
  7. Mirror meditation
  8. Use positive images and statements

These powerful methods, if followed diligently, will change your mental code and reprogram your mind.

Want to shift your reality real quick? 
What is reality?

The subject of reality is one of the most complicated, unknown subject of all time, and we should not even dare to venture into that pitfall, because all that you will find is questions and no answers. Let’s keep it simple here…

Reality is an illusion, the reality is what u see, and it’s not constant, it changes as you change your own thoughts and perspective about life.

It’s just the way you see things, and how you see things depends on who you are. Who you are is decided by what belief system you have got within you?

It’s like a filter…

We all have got filters within us, our judgments, our likes or dislikes, our choice of colors, dressing Sense, type of music or stories we like, all encoded in our belief system…

You can refer to this belief system as a subconscious program or mental code…

This belief system is the basis of how we live, see the world, that’s what is responsible to shape our perspective. throughout our life we are driven by this belief system, unconsciously, thinking this as our reality, our fate, something that’s unchangeable.

How do we acquire this belief system? Read this amazing article her

But, it’s changeable…

It’s like wearing sunglasses, if you put on red sunglasses, the world will appear red, if you just change the sunglass to a blue one, immediately the color of the world will change to blue…

Similarly, if we change our thought patterns, the reality will change too. What you need to understand is that reality is not an object, it’s an experience, and how you experience life depends on how you think, behave, act or react.

You see it’s all in your hand…

It’s the force within you which determines the experience…

If you have a filter of judgment in you, you will be always judgmental about everything. If u have a filter of selfishness, then u will see everyone as selfish.

At the same time, if you have a filter of hope, if your belief system is filled with prosperity and abundance, then you will always find that in the external world.

That’s why reality is relative to someone’s experience. Everyone is different from each other, that’s because each of us carries different belief systems…and so every one of us has a different way of looking at things…

Existence is the same for all of us, but it’s the sunglasses each of us is wearing, is what is making the world appear differently…

So, changing our perspective just like the sunglass can change our reality…

What is the process?

How to change our perspective? How to switch realities??

Most importantly, is it easy? Or how difficult it is?

Again, whether something is easy or difficult, depends on you. Ask yourself if you want to continue suffering, or you want to change your life for a better one.

If your priority is to change, if that’s important, if you have a strong desire to change, then it will appear easy to you, otherwise, it will be difficult.

In the below section, I am going to give you 6 amazing methods to change your reality by changing how you think…

No 1: Identify who you are and what you want?

To change the outer world, you need to change from within. Cause the outer world is a reaction to what u feel from inside…

How to find out who you are?

The first step towards that change starts from knowing yourself. knowing yourself includes 3 most important steps, who you are, what reality you are in now and what you want in the future.

Get a pen and paper, find a calm, quiet and comfortable place, and start asking yourself the following questions…

  • – What type of person you are?
  • – What are your likes and dislikes, and why do you like or dislike a certain thing or a person?
  • – What’s your mental structure?? do u get angry often, then ask why? do u get depressed often?  If so, then ask why?

 

Keep asking why, why and why? Don’t hurry up, it’s very important to go deep, go back and map your life to early life events, if possible, connect your childhood too…

Find out the reasons behind whatever your life situation you are in…

Once you know what you are, then go to 2nd step…

No 2. The most important step is to figure out life’s purpose:

How to find life’s purpose?

Similar steps…

Once you know who you are, with absolute clarity, it becomes easy to find what you want to be.

There might be multiple goals depending on your life situations, your inner desire and love for something, short term, long term and an absolute one which will determine who you are, it will be your self-expression…

Follow the writing exercise, figure out what is it that you want, what should be the course of your life? What you will like to do? What suits you best?

Once you have figured out the purpose of life, now go to the other steps, which will work on changing your perspective, in simple terms your mental code.

Steps to shift your reality

No 3. Change Your mental code:

Below are the 6 amazing methods which will change your mental code and establish a new neuronal connection in your brain with new beliefs.

– Learn to silence your mind:

This is the most important step before you begin to reprogram your mind, learn to silence the mind. Pouring new thoughts become easy once your mind is empty, your brain is incredibly receptive at that moment.

Re-wiring your brain becomes incredibly easy.

Meditation is the best tool to do so.  For meditation, you can find either a teacher or you can find a great one online too. Otherwise, mindfulness (What is mindfulness?) exercise will also work wonder.

– Affirmations:

Read, write and speak them. use positive affirmations to boost your confidence, continuous use can even rewire your brain.

Positive affirmations if repeated continuously can have powerful impacts on your brain. Human biochemistry is the slave of our thoughts, it’s like a mirror, it reflects exactly what you think.

Any idea that you conceive in the mind will have reciprocal feedback from your biochemistry. If you have a depressive thought in your mind, your body will slow down, your mind will be cluttered, and you will lose the ability to think anything clearly.

Similarly, if you are happy, your body will respond differently. It will release a large quantity of serotonin, serotonin has an extraordinary healing effect on your brain and body.

– Imagination and Creative Visualization:

Use the power of your imagination and see yourself already having all those that you desire. Find a comfortable and quiet place, be seated and start visualizing.

Use detail mental imagery and see each detail in your imagination vividly and clearly, as much as detailed possible.

Creative visualization is a powerful exercise due to the very nature of the human mind and the special power it possesses, called imagination.

– Power of Self-talk:

Think you have already achieved it. Now visualize yourself standing a giving a speech in a gathering, to a group of people, about how you achieved it, what are the actions you took to be wherever you are today.

Imagine yourself giving a speech in a TED talk show. Imagine yourself bursting out in motivation and satisfaction, while you are talking. Talk about your struggle, your fight, how many times you thought of giving up but still you persisted, you never left it.

Imagining yourself in the future as a successful being activates similar biochemistry within you, it focuses all your energy towards the future you, suddenly there is a rush of joy and inspiration, that “I can do” attitude.

So, do it regularly, this new belief of “I can do” will re-wire your brain and create a new mental program of confidence and worthiness.

 

finger induced lucid dreaming

The finger induced lucid dreaming technique is really good.

 

But what works for me is Music.

Intro LISTEN TO THE MUSIC HERE —-

So go ahead and have a pleasant lucid dreaming with music

Finger Induced Lucid Dream (FILD)
FILD (Finger Induced Lucid Dream)

Short Version:

Simplified Directions:

The Setup:
1. Go to sleep. It's that simple.. No hypnosis or visualization required.
2. To perform this technique, you have to be extremely close to falling asleep. The best time is either in the middle of the night, or in the morning. However, using this technique in the morning can often cause shorter LDs.
3. If you want to try FILD during the night, you have to find some way to wake up. There are various methods.. Find one that works for you.
4. Once you wake up, the first thing that should be on your mind is the FILD technique. Immediately relax, and try to go back to sleep how you normally would. The goal here is to get to the point just before you fall back to sleep. Once you've reached this point, begin the FILD technique. If you fall back to sleep, don't worry… you can try again when you wake up.

The Technique:
1. Imagine for a second that you are playing a piano using your index and middle finger with one hand. Your fingers are side by side on two keys. Now, press your right finger down, leaving your left finger up. Next, press your left finger down, and lift your right finger back up. Repeat this up and down motion.
2. So you have the motion down? Try this: Imagine you are playing the piano again (using the same motion), but this time, press the keys so lightly that they don't go down. Give it a try on your computer keyboard – you should basically feel your muscles contract, but your fingers should hardly move.
3. You're almost there. All you have to do is use this finger movement when you wake up. Once you reach step 4 on the setup process, start moving your fingers. Focus on the movement. By directing your focus, you will fall asleep within seconds. Do not count your finger movements or talk to yourself in your head. Also, do not try to make yourself go to sleep.. that will only wake you up. That's it!
4. Once about 10 to 20 seconds have passed, take your other hand, and perform a nose RC. Simply pinch your nose and try to breath in. If you can, you're dreaming!
5. If you find that the RC doesn't work, don't worry.. you can try again. Just go to sleep normally, and try again when you wake up.

Original Directions from LD4ALL:

1. Go to sleep:
– You want to do this tech when you are the most tired. For some people, it's 3 hours after you have gone to sleep, for others, 5, or you can do it in the morning (harder)
– might help to tell your self to wake up after your dreams (Like in the MILD tech.).. haven’t tried this yet
– Try playing very soft music in the background when you go to sleep if you want to wake up during the REM state. Make sure it's very very soft, and has no beat/voice in it.

2. This is the hardest part of the technique. You need to get into a state where you are very tired, and feel like you could easily fall asleep. To achive this, you either have to wake up from a dream during the night, set an alarm clock for the time where you will be the most tired, or use the dream period in the morning.

2a. (Unreliable, but easy if you wake up) If you find that you have just woken up from a dream in the middle of the night or you set your alarm to wake you up, you should already feel very tired. Continue to step 3. (if not, just go back to sleep. You could try to relax, but I dont think it would work too well.)

2b. (most reliable) If you have set an alarm clock for 3, 5 or however many hours works best for you, you should wake up in a tired state. Try relaxing, and when you feel like your very close to sleep, contine to step 3. However, if you have woken up, and dont feel tired at all, I would go back to sleep.

2c. (hard and unreliable) If you have woken up in the morning, you might not feel very tired. (You might be relaxed, but you would find it hard to start sleeping agian.) To get into this “tired” state, you should go back to sleep. In about 30 mins (or more), you will wake up again. When you wake up this time (try not to move or open your eyes), try to relax as much as possible and see how tired you feel. (Be carefull you dont fall back to sleep) If you feel very tired, continue to step 3. Otherwise, go back to sleep, and try again when you wake up.

3. Relax. Once you think you are about to fall asleep again (You should already feel like this when you wake), you need to start moving part of your body, It should just be a very small movement, and it needs to be repetitive. I recommend using your fingers.
– What I do is this: Right now, imagine you are playing a piano with 2 fingers: your pointer and middle finger. Push one key down, lift it back up and at the same time, press the other finger down. Just keep going back and forth between the fingers. I have my hand under my pillow when i did this, but Im sure it would work anywhere. Just make sure the movement is very small, and takes very little energy to perform it. (I was just doing this on my right hand)
– Another Note: When you are moving you fingers, don’t try to visualize anything, just think to you self that you will do this for 10-30 secs, and then check to see if it's a dream.
– Also, do not tell your self all the actions you are going to do, and do not “count” while you do this tech… Just say to your self, you will do a RC in 10-30 secs, and then just lay there, moving you fingers.
– Try to focus on the movement, and just try to relax.
– Do not focus on trying to fall asleep (it will keep you awake). Keep focus on your fingers, do not let your mind wander.

4. Once you start the motion, try to relax (as much as you can, but don’t force it. Dont “try” to fall asleep) and wait about 10-30 seconds (keep your fingers moving). During this short time, tell your self that you will wait about 10-30 secs, and then you will check to see if you are in a dream. (Don’t count in your head) Once the 10-20 secs have passed, do a nose RC (Where you pinch your nose closed, and try to breath in.. If you can, you are in a dream). If the RC fails, just try to go to sleep normally for a few mins (no motion or RCs), and try the tech one more time. If it fails again, go to sleep, and try again later that morning. If it works it should only take 10-30 secs. Do not lay there doing a RC every 30 secs over and over, it will just wake you up even more.
– The first time I did this, I thought that It wasn’t going to work. After the 10-30 secs, I still was sure that I was still trying to fall asleep, with my fingers moving. However, when I did a RC, I realized it was a dream. I thought to my self “wow, I’m in a LD, I guess it does work”
– On 7-4-04, I found that whenever I started to dream, I had a tingly sensation all over my body.

5. If the nose RC works, try to get out of bed…
– I found that in the morning, when I tried to get out of bed in the dream, I would wake up immediately when I tried to move. If this happens to you, you should try this: once you realize that you are dreaming from the nose RC, keep your eyes closed, and keep pinching your nose. Continue to breath through your nose. Wait about 10-30 secs, and then try to visualize your room in your head (like your looking at it thru your closed eyes). The image should slowly come to you, and once it has, get out of bed, and you shouldn’t wake up from the movement.

NOTE: When this works successfully, the real world (where you were moving you fingers) will be transitioned into the dream world (You will dream that you are still moving your fingers, and trying to relax).

Some people are telling me that they are trying to move their fingers, and then do a RC every 30 secs.. That's not what you should do. If the 1st RC fails, stop the finger movement, and RCs, and try to relax for a few mins, then, try the tech once more. If it fails again, go to sleep, and try again later that morning. Hope that helps

Things to try: Instead of waiting only 10-30 secs, see what happens if you wait more like 1-5 mins. (When I discovered this tech. I kept waking up from what I thought was the real world, and realizing that it was entirely a dream.. So I tried again, and told my self to wait a few secs, and then do a RC.. and it worked). I think that it is either going to work, or it's not going to work, do not lay there for 20 mins moving your fingers. If it doesn’t work, go back to sleep, or try relaxing for another few mins.
