Hmm, I have things to write about but would rather save them for a bigger more landmark entry. For now I finished the carving and am getting it ready for staining. Check it out!

RE: Andrew's BAMM Journal
Well, I've kept a bit quiet lately because although big things have been happening they are personal to a level I will not share here. But I've been making more big strides. Having to let go of some things, while taking greater responsibility in other areas. Tomorrow will be the start of Stage 2 and I definitely feel ready. Usually about a week before the next stage in a set I feel like I'm waiting for the next stage.

There should be at least something here that I can share that's been going on that's not too personal. I'll have to look back at my last couple posts to get some perspective...

...ok. So I made a countdown calendar and have been mapping out all the milestones I want to get to before I fly out. I accidentally made my countdown calendar 280 days instead of 120. Although I do not believe it was an accident Wink The days have become more valuable, but the last week has been mostly slowly applying the things I've learned from the month.

I'm still learning at such a rate that it can be difficult at times to keep up. I don't just mean life and awareness- I'm learning at an alarming rate in my carving, on my violin...everything I do. My cognitive/brain power has reached a level that amazes me every day. With some big changes to how I learn starting 14 years ago, having reached its peak last year (learning method), I'm really able to capitalize on the quality of training as opposed to the quantity. How is it I stay ahead of others I know who practice the violin hours a day and I only practice an hour at most? Quality. Also the high level of fish oil and nootropics have helped as well. I can finally drink caffeine again in ALL forms without any major drawbacks thanks to choline and phosphatidylserine (I'm not saying it's a free ride-caffeine is a drug and there are always advantages and drawbacks).

Anyway, carving is as done. I think next post I'll try to make a major entry, and if my countdown calendar is full and my milestones are marked I'll share with all of you my "due dates" for certain projects.

RE: Andrew's BAMM Journal
Andrew,
1. Your carvings are absolutely gorgeous-out of curiosity, are they for your own enjoyment-or do you sell them?
2. What is you nootropic regime? Which Racetams do you use?
3. Do you thing the amazing speed at which your learning and gaining awareness is primarily BAMM or the new supplement regime?
thanks

RE: Andrew's BAMM Journal
Thank you Rainbow- The carvings, as well as violin and all my other arts are for personal development, and enjoyment. I do not sell them or any of my art, I give them away to people who are both important to me and have earned my respect in some way. If I were to do any of my arts as professions or take money for them I know from experience it would kill all love I have partaking in them, kill all my skill level development, and it would immediately turn from a passion into a job. It took me 5 years to recover from the last time I made this mistake before I could love playing the violin again. I do not know if this is a universal thing and applies to everyone else, but I do see it happen to a lot of people.

For nootropics I use mostly 8g of fish oil or 4g of high DHA oil, choline and phosphatidylserine. That's my bread and butter. For racetams I use piracetam, aniracetam, and all 3 designer B's. I will be trying modafinil soon.

To answer your question #3-my simple answer is no, to both. The amazing speed at which I'm learning is due simply to the fact that I push my brain hard and seek ways in which to push it even harder. Nootropics and BAMM are a means to an end, as well as my trip to Tasmania. I believe in developing my brain in all directions with an intensity that baffles most. Why? Simple, everything is interconnected. Everything. I am not a "jack of all trades" I'm a "expert in all trades" and become more so every day. I've spend the last 14 years figuring out how to restructure my thoughts and thinking processes from the ground up-and then figuring out how to develop brain power in every area I can find.

So, maybe that's not the answer you wanted. So maybe the following is more what you're looking for. As my "brain power" journey has progressed, so has my ability to find useful tools. Two of those tools being BAMM and nootropics. The acceleration and the finding of these tools go hand in hand but not without the other, and not without having established my base so many years ago. Wether I'm doing Harry Kahne, ensuring my Lumosity scores are in the top 1%, expanding my troubleshooting skills travelling to foreign countries, playing the most difficult pieces for the violin ever created....and that's only scratching the surface of what I do. The point is I find ways in which to stimulate my brain with INTENSITY. BAMM and Nootropics are helping me get more and go more intense. But without me stimulating my brain with intensity, no drug, no subliminal, no nothing would bring me to or even keep me where I am. It is the same as in the gym-there's supplements, drugs and "secrets" all over the place but none of that can replace sweat equity.

RE: Andrew's BAMM Journal
Thanks Andrew
the answer to number three was a great answer
and very inspiring. I like the way you put it BAMM and noots
are just tools, extensions of your journey. I love the idea of developing
your brain in all directions.
I'm considering trying modafinil soon as well.

Thank you- I'm referring to designer B1 (Thiamine), B3 (Niacin), B6 (Pyridoxine): Sulbutiamine, Picamilon, Pyritinol. The only noo's I use daily are DHA/Fish oil, Choline/Phosphatidylserine, and caffeine from black or green tea (but sometimes I take breaks from this). I only brew my black teas 60-120 seconds, and my green teas 50 seconds. I use roughly a tablespoon per pot or large cup. If I brew those teas any longer my stomach gets ill and I get unfortunate side effects. I can also drink coffee for the first time in my life without getting a migraine, and can drink Chai tea again without a migraine. I can also now sleep at night where I could not if I drank any more than ~70mg of caffeine, even if I drank it at 5:00 AM. Overall my sleep is 100% reliable and this has been better than any sleep medication I've ever taken-and I've taken them all. Basically I can now take any caffeine (or stop it abruptly) without any major consequences as long as I keep taking those basics. I have a very large degree of freedom of when I want to go to sleep It has given me several additional factors I can control in my life besides the obvious cognitive benefits.

Well, no, not really the first. Shannon's journal was the first to mention use and effects of BAMM Wink

If you mean first exclusively BAMM journal, that is true. Or first BAMM journal by someone who didn't create the program to begin with... heehee.

I do find both Andrew's and Shannon's experiences quite interesting and can't wait to see more BAMM journals as people are accepted to buy and are able to start to buy BAMM.

Though I won't be able to start BAMM for a LONG time yet myself.

RE: Andrew's BAMM Journal
thanks Andrew
glad to hear you've can have the java without a splitting headache.
Coffee and tea if used properly are fantastic.
Sulbutiamine is incredible but not to be used to often in my opinion.
Caffine, taurine, B6 and 12, and L-theanine is also one of the most ridiculously potent combos I have ever tried for clean, relaxed but high intensity energy. My consistent experience is an open minded focus that can narrow in and sustain individual task focus to a T without getting tunnel vision.

RE: Andrew's BAMM Journal
New Beginnings

The sun sets, and chaos from the storm softly lays to rest. Sky falls to darkness, and a tiny small light begins to glow. First one, then two more. As the horizon turns pitch black, the lights grow stronger. Soon, more lights appear in the distance...followed by millions.

Quote:"Once I was blind, but now I can see."

I am terming these journals with titles "landmark" journals where I feel I am collected and ready enough to reflect on what was and what's to come. Even felt like doing a little creative writing blip there which is unusual for me. So as I enter Stage 2, I already know where I am headed. Stage 1 did an excellent job showing me just how far down the rabbit hole went. I've deconstructed my reality and am now finding my place in my new one. The storm ended roughly a week and some change ago. I've had to whittle down the number of friends and people I entrust my time to. That number used to be a dozen, now the number of people who I'll trust with my time is 4 - who not by accident are at similar awareness & intellect level as I am (before AM it used to be just about everybody!). It's not that I won't spend time with people outside those 4, but it absolutely has to be on my terms. I control when it starts, what we do, and when it ends. Outside those 4 unfortunately, people are wasteful with others' time not to mention their own. Can't risk it anymore, throws me off too much. Other than that I am looking forward to stage 2 and at the end of stage 2 I predict I will be very focused. Although I appreciated the reality-deconstruction I am thankful for moving on and not coming back to it another year Wink So now on to my present journey...


I'm a bit hesitant to talk about things I discover because I have reached a point where very few people can understand what I am saying. I feel like a man on the mountain top trying to explain to a farmer who's never left his village what the ocean and clouds look like. And yet I know where I'm heading would be like a man on the space station trying to explain to a man on a mountain top what the whole world looks like.

So I'm going to keep it real simple, I'm not going to explain anything and you can take from it what you want. The understanding of this concept I'm about to reveal is relevant to each readers' current vantage point.

Quote:"Peace has cost you your strength. Victory has defeated you!" - Bane


I have discovered the truth behind my journey. You could say I've realized my "destiny" although I do not believe in fate. I will simply say this: Becoming a Multi Millionaire, has become a tiny dot in my greater plans and purpose.

For me, becoming a multi-millionaire has never been more than a step - although an important one - towards achieving my real goals and "destiny" if you will. Interesting that you seem to have arrived at the same point of view.

Just have to take a quick time-out to say WOW. Being on the voting panel for BAMM applicants was hard. It's one thing chasing my dreams, but having direct affect on others' got emotional. The hardest part of course, was sending out the rejection letters.

Lately I've been expressing myself in quotes. I mean this one metaphorically, of course.

Quote: "A king who no longer does his own executions, soon forgets the meaning of death." - Game of Thrones

I don't actually own the book...or know if this quote came from somewhere else. So if someone knows the full or original quote, help me out so I can add it to my personal quote collection.

RE: Andrew's BAMM Journal
Yeah sorry Rainbow, if you send an e-mail I can talk to you there.

I re-enabled my PM's for a while, but people throughout the forum were still using my inbox for support instead of our store contact form/e-mail form. Unfortunately people don't realize that although I am the "expert" behind how the store works, Ben is actually able to assist faster. I'm a specialist and every time someone asks a question, or needs something, I have to research out the situation. If something needs fixing-Ben can cut to the chase so I know what needs to be fixed so I don't have to e-mail back and forth with a customer more times. I guess I should just be grateful people aren't using my journal for support like they were Shannon's Wink Although honestly I would just move their question out of my journal somewhere else, lol.

Anyway I just got back from Florida working with Shannon and a lot of good things happened, including the one very big thing I was expecting. Once I get situated in a day or two I'll write a proper journal entry.
