How To Improve Productivity & Performance Using Expanded Awareness: Part 1

Expanded Awareness is a relaxed state of mind that is also known as the “Learning State”. It allows the mind to be both totally focused and receptive to new information at the same time (i.e. it creates a mental state that is both focused and receptive to new information).

This state of “Expanded Awareness” is created when a person shifts their attention from foveal vision (tunnel vision, focusing (in) on a spot or 1 small area) to peripheral vision.

Foveal vision stimulates the upper lobes of the lungs, which stimulates the Sympathetic Nervous System that governs “freeze, fight and flight” responses. Peripheral vision stimulates the lower lobes of the lungs, which stimulates the Parasympathetic Nervous System that governs functions such as rest, relaxation, calmness, focus, sleep, digestion, sexual arousal and orgasmic capacity.

For anyone with attention or learning challenges, this “Learning State” has proved to be highly effective. It is the optimal state while reading, training or when taking in large amounts of information. There is some evidence that this technique may synchronize both hemispheres of the brain.

Expanded Awareness was used in the ancient system of the Samurai. When entering into peripheral vision the Samurai were able to achieve the highly prized state of “centered calmness”. This process consisted of learning how to enter into a deep trance while maintaining a heightened state of external awareness.

This state induced by being in peripheral vision is also used in the Chinese Martial Arts. It allows one to be aware of external cues such as the opponent’s breathing rate, subtle eye, facial and postural movements, gross body movements and the physical environment while at the same time maintaining one’s inner state of calm and balance. By being deeply relaxed and highly focused at the same time, one is alerted moment to moment of every detail of the opponent’s fighting strategy. This is therefore an extremely useful tool.

The state of Expanded Awareness can also take a “ thing” such as a problem or goal from the material world into the void and vice versa. According to Quantum Physics, you create your universe based on your own personal observations. If you don’t know something exists, then it simply does not exist. However through the action of knowing something, by cognizing it, you are actually “creating” it. At the same time, the ‘knowing’ at some level creates boundaries that can limit your choices as it prevents you from being in touch with all of the other infinite ways of ‘knowing’.

For example, by describing a problem we put boundary conditions on that problem. By using Expanded Awareness, once we have defined a problem we can shift our attention from the content or details of the problem to the overall context. By shifting our attention to the “not problem” (i.e. everything that is not contained within the problem itself) we can find a solution. This technique is effective in dissolving simple and complex issues/ behaviors where one or several negative emotions are involved. The key to its efficacy is to be in touch with the entire problem i.e. the problem and “not problem”, the boundary condition itself and everything else that is “not the boundary condition.”

This technique has far reaching applications.

E.g. it can be used for learning, creating new neurological and behavioral choices (dissolving an issue using expanded awareness), as a state for training, competing, performing and presenting and as a means for improving productivity.

While I constantly move in and out of these states of focus all day, I have never heard this kind of scientific, detailed discussion of it. Great article! Thank you, Dezi.
