Is it possible that these distractions are "programs" in my thoughts?
Are there techniques out there to assist me in gracefully removing all thoughts that are not serving my creative flow?
Monks go into a cave for three years to master "Distracting Thoughts," I am trying to avoid this level of isolation in order to tame my beast.
David and I started our certification in NLP, (Neuro Linguistic Programming) for two reasons, we love the study of consciousness and I wanted to delete programs that are distracting me from writing!
I learned from Michelle today that most of our sub-conscious programming occurred by age three. When I first heard this I said to myself, "That figures!" Please hypnotize me and hit delete now!" My under-lying issue programmed at three is the need for "Security." Security plays havoc on every issue in my life. I moved several times before I was three and my father was an air rescue pilot for the Air Force. Life was anything but secure with war lurking and my mother's fear of my father's death.
I was so excited about having my programs deleted, when Carl the NLP Master Practitioner asked for a volunteer today I ran up to the front of the class room. Sadly I was too early in the eight months of training for the method in hypnosis, instead I was used as an example of Observation, how to tell the difference between Sensory Observation (confirmable) and Non-Sensory (not confirmable).
Basically one can be proven and the other not. A lot of thoughts that run through our heads are Non-Sensory, (we make them up!) :)
I went home distracted by my mind map, a map that I am on and don't like the location I find myself come the end of the day. I have not written my minimum of 2,000 words a day, like I promised myself. I learned about the 2,000 words a day goal from Stephen King's amazing non-fiction book titled, "On Writing!" It's a mind-blowing book about the life of a writer, his story! Even King had to battle distractions and over come them.

My first stop was to The World Sound Healing Conference in San Francisco. I wanted to understand the science of frequencies, especially if everything in the universe was vibrating to their own unique song! I waited in the large conference room to hear Dr. Susan Yale's lecture on the Harmonic Oscillator. The room went dark and three pyramids projected on a large movie screen.
"You can hear the sound of "nature" between the Pyramids of Giza," Dr. Yale said, pausing, "it's a perfect F Sharp." No one moved. She spoke slowly, "If you knew there was a place in the world where you could hear God, would you go?" I always wanted to swim in the Nile! ~ from my Memoir, (click link—"From Hollywood to God" Kelly Granite Enck on Amazon books and Kindle.
