Possibilities of Neurographica. Part 1
Psychology of Creativity Institute receives a lot of questions about proper uses for Neurographica, its strengths and abilities. Some even wonder if the neurographic line can be used to alter your DNA, and in this article we are going to answer some of those questions.
Changes in the brain and our perception Seriously, what impact does Neurographica have on a person's life and state of mind? Numerous testimonials attest to the positive changes in people's lives after they began using this method. All changes in the outside world start with a change in your mind. Viewed from the chemistry and biology standpoint, the neurographic line appears to initiate a very deep-level process in the human body. Of course, this is not a DNA mutation, but still, a serious shift in your awareness and sense of self.
According to the theory of the metamodern, any process can be divided up into developmental stages according to the four quadrants. If we look at the human brain, we can divide it up into four parts:
Reptilian brain — responsible for instincts.
The limbic system — responsible for emotional intelligence
Neocortex — responsible for rational intelligence.
The fourth part is still forming, humans are still going through an evolutionary process that doesn't stop. Our brains are morphing into something of a higher level, and this has to be studied and explored yet.
What does this have to do with Neurographica? The neurographic line reveals a person's potential by utilizing unusual capabilities of their brains. In recent times, many people have been increasingly discovering paranormal abilities. Or, perhaps, they are not paranormal at all, but rather normal, and will eventually become natural in everyday life?
In neurographic drawing, we go into the parts of the subconscious that we normally do not address at all. That's when we tap into potentialities and abilities that we would not ever think of in everyday life.
Uncovering unconscious/underlying motives
Sometimes the outcome of neurographic drawing does not match our expectations or intentions. Neurographica helps us explore our unconscious, which is, in fact, vast. When we use the Algorithm for Removing Limitations to reveal our unconscious motivations, these motivations begin actively seeking realisation. For example, a person might have a job that he or she hates, but despite that, goes there every day. All day, this person's heart longs to be somewhere else, let's say at the ocean. When this person starts working on the topic of that job through neurographica, gradually, he starts to feel just like he does at the ocean, not at work. How is this possible?
Neurographica actually doesn't help with our current wants and needs — the ones that are on the surface, but rather with unconscious motives that have accumulated sufficient energy. When our motivations become conscious, it gets easier to align with them, doing the actual things that need to be done and noticing opportunities and signs that we haven't noticed before. The chance that all the puzzle pieces will fall into place increases. An unconscious motivation to be at the ocean, now manifested through your inner world and felt in your body, will eventually take you to the ocean. The change in your inner state will transform into external change.
Working with Neurographica makes you confront your inner world, and this is what poses a risk for those who have just started to practise systematically. Initially, the unconscious and the conscious minds are at odds with each other. It turns out that what you thought you wished for does not come true, or that it does not come true exactly as you wish.
One fact is certain: what comes true in our lives is what has collected sufficient energy for realisation and is ready to rise up from a subconscious level. Our accumulated unconscious desires get manifested in their own time and help us fully accept ourselves, including our shadow side and our full creative potential.
The key point to keep in mind here is that the Algorithm for Removing Limitations truly sets you free, and it is best to accept whatever comes in. We can follow the thinking and behaviour patterns imposed on us by our immediate environment and society as a whole, but ARL re-establishes our connection to our own human nature, to our own sensations.
During the drawing process in Neurographica, three focal points of attention should be kept in mind. Self-reflection is an essential part of the method that helps you learn to perceive subtle energies, become more sensitive and develop new qualities and sides of yourself.
In Neurographica, there are vertical compositions, such as the well-known NeuroTree. Vertical compositions help with the development and growth of anything. They also provide rapid adjustments, there have been reports of people getting the desired result before even finishing the drawing. These algorithms mostly describe how people are developing and growing up. Vertical compositions are also used in business settings to increase productivity and team cohesion quickly.
Working with a vertical axis assists a person in maturing and seeing the world as a responsible and self-aware individual. The vertical axis represents the Subject; it is someone who has attained great heights. It is the one who takes the first step. Most normal, ordinary people you meet on the street (in fact, all of us at times) aspire for the horizontal axis: to lie on a sofa or a beach, watch TV or the sunset without much movement. It is a yearning to return to our mother's embrace. It is a desire to return to earth, a chance to receive our mother's energy once more.
The vertical axis at the same time represents paternal energy. It is a combination of discipline, masculinity, and willpower. The vertical axis provides us with both strength and independence.
Room for experiments
During neurographic drawing, some people feel they want to turn the sheet upside down. Some people draw, holding the sheet horizontally, and then turn it vertically. Can you rotate your sheet during drawing and what does it provide?
We are artists, and no one has the right to stifle our creative process. Neurographica enables experimentation. It is worth considering different options and seeing what happens. You can rotate the sheet as many times as you want if it corresponds or in some way correlates with the topic of the drawing. The most important thing to remember here is to always keep the context in mind.
The only undesirable kind of experiment in Neurographica is decorating the drawing. Decorative elements of any kind are not permitted in pure Neurographica. Otherwise, it is called NeuroArt.
Neurographica is not a decorative craft. It is also not a symbolic art, it is entirely abstract. So, all kinds of obvious symbols should be avoided.
The possibility for experimentation can also be attributed to many people's desire to solve health problems using Neurographica. It is critical to understand that Neurographica is not therapy in any way. It helps with forming new neural connections related to a specific topic. In other words, it works with the desired future.
Yet when it comes to health in general, you can use colours to your advantage. In our system, colours represent energies. There are diseases linked with overabundance of the energy of the cold, which can be balanced by warmth, or a red colour. Inflammatory diseases, on the other hand, are characterised by excess fire. Cold colours, such as blue and black, are appropriate in this case. NeuroColour module of the Instructor course goes into great detail on this subject. Anyone who has already achieved the status of Neurographica Basic User can master it.
However, you must be cautious when working on health with Neurographica algorithms, there are specific safety regulations. At the same time, ARL and other algorithms of the Basic User Course are excellent in every way and can be applied to any topic.
Neurographica offers a wide range of opportunities for personal transformation in addition to vertical development and reaching goals. First, the basic algorithm itself is built in a way that makes it go deeper and deeper into the subconscious mind with each new step. Up to the point of complete union with the Self, i.e. the absolute.
How do your drawings depict your transformation? There might be a period of time when all of your drawings appear to be very similar, almost as if they were drawn using a template or even copied. This is an indication of pre-existing thought patterns. Only through consistent practice and by working on formation of new neural connections can you break them down.
But, of course, some things cannot be taken away from you. You are exactly who you are. You are going to develop your own unique drawing style. When professional artists begin drawing Neurographica, they notice that their artworks resemble one another. However, if you examine artworks of several different artists, you will notice that they all have their unique styles, there is no way you are going to confuse them.
Creating a multi-dimensional picture of the world
When your topic is complex, the drawing can become quite complicated. Occasionally, the top layers of your drawing cover the bottom layers and you can no longer see what you were working on at the start. Some people find this upsetting.
Rules and algorithms are very important in Neurographica. The outcome matters too, but the process by which transformation occurs is equally important. Actually, what matters most is not what our eyes see, but what happens to us internally. That is the essence of the matter.
There is a rule in Neurographica: the quantity of lines defines the quality of the result. The more layers you add to your drawing, the more dimensions there are in the world you create, and the more your brain develops.
Naturally, it is critical to keep the drawing clean. If a big number of layers leads to confusion and dirt on the sheet, consider starting a new drawing on the same topic, working on a case (a series of drawings). It is important to keep your drawings clean. It takes a miracle to create a beautiful, clean, multi-dimensional drawing. All of the layers need to be easily discernible. To put it differently, mind the aesthetics when creating multilayer drawings.
The more layers you can create and perceive, the more mental load your brain can handle.
