What if you finally found peace and could bring it to those in despair? What if you were able to lead an enriched fulfilled life then show others how. What if you developed your best self professionally and personally then showed others the way? What if you helped people think better, feel better, relate better, perform better? In awakening their spiritual intelligence and awareness you’d coach them on their journey to a life worth living.  You’d be helping others not to give up. You’d maximise your potential and be intellectually and emotionally satisfied. Too good to be true? Read on………

Life is hard. It’s not impossible; it can be wonderful, but, ultimately, life is hard. Evolutionary psychologists say it’s because we have a selfish streak, we’re hypocrites, we use free will heedless of consequences, we’re all emotional and we’re hard to get on with. What if you could help sort this heady mixture shaping lives? What if you could help assist and ease troubled minds?

Do you wonder why people aren't generally happy—after all, we’ve cars, TVs, smart phones, vacations, pets, endless supplies of food, wine and entertainment. In reality, regardless of who you are and what you’ve got, happiness is elusive and fleeting.

 Ask yourself these questions:

1  Are you satisfied with life?

    No?

2  You’ve tried everything searching for happiness but there’s no satisfaction. Is this you?

    Yes 

 

3  Ok, what is completely satisfactory?

     Money? No

     Food? No

     Sex? No

What, then?

     Fame? No

     Good job? No

     Health? No

     Status? No

     Love? No

     Family? No

 

Here’s your real problem:

 

You’ve been seeking happiness and satisfaction

 for the wrong person.

 

  • You’re not the psychological image  you’ve created from your thoughts, emotions, and feelings and profiled all over social media

  •  The “real you” is the one who is aware of those thoughts, emotions, and feelings. That is who you should be seeking happiness and satisfaction for 

  •  The problem is, the “real you” is buried beneath a lifetimes baggage of thoughts, emotions, reactions, feelings and experiences

How did we get into this rut?

How did we get into this rut?

From the early 17th century onwards, traditional religious explanations of life and reality gave way to fact based explanations based on the laws of physics. This enormous shift prevails as scientific orthodoxy today and states human beings are nothing more than a bunch of atoms in a complex chemical formula. It replaces traditional upbeat religious views of humanity with one of meaninglessness and futility punctured by pain, aberration, and despair. 

From the early 17th century onwards, traditional religious explanations of life and reality gave way to fact based explanations based on the laws of physics. This enormous shift prevails as scientific orthodoxy today and states human beings are nothing more than a bunch of atoms in a complex chemical formula. It replaces traditional upbeat religious views of humanity with one of meaninglessness and futility punctured by pain, aberration, and despair. 

This dark vision has caused an ever widening gap between religion and science stranding humanity in the middle with nowhere to go. The toll in suffering includes alienation, abandonment, anxiety, neurosis, nausea, aimlessness, hollowness, meaninglessness and the despair of living a cruel, pointless, “dog eat dog” existence in a materialist world.

However, the dogma of scientific orthodoxy which has dominated for last few hundred years, is proving no more permanent than the religious dogma it replaced. 

In 1900 scientists discovered phenomena that could not be explained by classical physics. This resulted in a new branch of physics called quantum mechanics which has since showed:-

  • Atoms and subatomic particles do not exist with certainty at definite spatial locations and definite times
  • Particles being observed and the observer—the physicist and the method used for observation—are linked 
  • The consciousness of the observer is vital to the existence of the physical events being observed
  • Mental events can affect the physical world.
  • The physical world is not the sole component of reality and cannot be fully understood without reference to the mind.

 

This laid the foundation for linking the brain to thinking and consciousness. 

Scientists have since gathered empirical evidence to demonstrate that conscious mental activity influences behaviour, that thoughts and emotions impact physiological systems, and that activities like emotional self-regulation and meditation influence brain activity. In addition, research demonstrates that humans can mentally influence—at a distance—physical devices and living organisms. 

Whilst the underlying physics are not understood they demonstrate the need for a wider framework of research.

The suggestion that the mind exists separate from the brain is controversial. It does not fit mainstream scientific theories and beliefs. Whilst scientists cannot elucidate how the brain could generate the mind they cannot ignore quantum physics and empirical evidence gathered to date.

You’ll recognise spiritual wackiness when you come across it. Proponents spend more time telling people they are spiritual than doing the hard work of becoming spiritual. Such spirituality is fleeting, like feelings experienced watching a beautiful sunset – gone in minutes. Ignore.

You don’t need to understand quantum physics to believe there is a deep interconnectedness between mind and the physical world. 

The mind can work through the brain, but is not produced by it. It follows that scientists should not be afraid to investigate spirituality and spiritual experiences since they represent a central aspect of human existence and the mind.

Science is a non-dogmatic, open-minded method of acquiring knowledge about nature through the observation, experimental investigation, and theoretical explanation of phenomena. Its methodology is not synonymous with any particular beliefs, dogmas, or ideologies. 

 

Spirituality plays a similar role in the mind. Spirituality is not religion. It is based on personal experience not on any particular religious beliefs and dogmas. Spirituality is secular. You can be of any religious belief or none. You can be atheist, agnostic or theist. Anyone can be spiritual.

 

But beware. Spirituality has a bad reputation and can be very wacky and way too airy fairy and new age. People who claim to be spiritual are often just self-obsessed and so busy gazing at their own navels they don’t see anybody else. Sorry I can’t speak right now “I’m just in my process” or “I’m just dealing with my stuff” or “I’m just speaking my truth”.

Bringing science together with the spirituality of the mind has huge benefits including getting rid of the dogma associated with each - which delivered humanity into the rut in the first place -  and being free of all ideological beliefs. A synthesis of findings from related fields of scientific research suggests a new framework for understanding ourselves:

Basically, what this diagram is saying, is that to understand ourselves we need the overview. We must consider how we think – intellectual intelligence, how we feel – emotional intelligence, and our deepest self – spiritual intelligence. We must also accept we’ll ask questions to which there might not be answers – but this shouldn’t get in the way of progress.

Intelligence Quotient (IQ)

This was introduced in 1912 and  is meant to give a rough estimation of how smart and intelligent we are as defined by a range of tests. It’s the intelligence, I suppose, of how to get things done intellectually. Unfortunately, humans are staggeringly complex so such tests don’t really deliver. But as a concept to help us understand, its good. We all have intellect. We all use it to make decisions. Scientists like this because each test has a result.

 

Emotional Intelligence (EQ)

Also called “Emotional Quotient”. EQ measures how well we use our feelings and emotions in positive ways to relieve stress, communicate effectively, empathize with others, overcome challenges and defuse conflict. The concept first emerged in 1964 in an attempt to understand peoples behaviour and how we make decisions. The scientific community denies its existence as it cannot be proved. Market forces disagree. People with high EQ have up to 20% higher salaries, occupy more leadership positions, have greater mental health, more social capital and integrate better into society.

 

Spiritual Intelligence (SQ)

The concept of spiritual intelligence is very recent. Think of “spiritual intelligence” as the  “real you” -  the one who is aware of your thoughts, emotions, and feelings. It is not the “fake you” concocted from thoughts, emotions, and feelings and broadcast to your closest 750,000 friends on social media! Also, it is important to note “spiritual intelligence” is non secular i.e. separate from existing beliefs, non-beliefs or ideologies.

 

As an example, you need IQ to get the job; EQ to do it well;

 and SQ to know  "Why”

The concept of Spiritual Intelligence is an anathema to mainstream science as it cannot be evidenced in the lab. The existing focus of scientific reason and logic is too narrow to accommodate this framework. Science works well getting a single answer to a single question. Humans are more complex - there can be more than one answer to a good question.

Claiming the Middle Ground Between Science and Belief

No matter what our beliefs, instinctive desires like love, sex, hunger, fighting, fleeing etc  – make us act a certain way. These desires are Darwinian. They help us survive and evolve. So  what happens when “instincts” conflict with “spiritual intelligence” - which is not an instinct? 

A man is drowning and cries for help. You feel two desires

1.       The desire to help – this is herd instinct

2.       The desire to keep out of danger – this is self-preservation instinct

There is nothing in the person’s mind except these two instincts. The stronger of the two must win. Then what?

A third desire emerges telling you to suppress one desire at the expense of the other. This third desire is the “judge”. It is not an instinct. It is completely separate from desire 1 or 2. Nobody knows where it comes from.

Unfortunately, most of the time, the judge tells us to side with the weaker of the two desires. You don’t want to die yourself but you go against the strong evolutionary instinct to survive. You risk your own life to help the drowning person. Why do that? Why sacrifice your ability to pass your genes to the next generation – the evolutionary instinct driving all life?

The judge is spiritual intelligence. As Lewis states: 

Spiritual intelligence tells us the tune we have to play: our instincts are merely the keys.

When human society is driven by instincts, self-preservation and reproduction, the doors open to the worst of human behaviours: global wars, civil wars, genocides, slavery, terrorism, famine, poverty, injustice, inequality and so on. We’d create an even more “cruel and treacherous” world than the one we have now. 

If spiritual intelligence has stopped humanity from self-destruction on a global scale, it can certainly be used to help individuals understand themselves better.

By using this construct we can forge a way forward to help people connect with themselves in a secular way independent of but complimentary to any belief system.

The brain’s processing pathways.

Neurological studies have established that the brain has three distinct processing modes, called serial, parallel and synchronous.

Neurological studies have established that the brain has three distinct processing modes, called serial, parallel and synchronous. 

Serial processing is associated with IQ functions in the left brain

 

Parallel processing is associated with EQ functions in the right brain. 

 

Synchronous processing is associated with SQ functions in the whole brain

Serial processing is associated with IQ functions in the left brain

 

Parallel processing is associated with EQ functions in the right brain. 

 

Synchronous processing is associated with SQ functions in the whole brain

By linking part-brain functions from both hemispheres into the integrated field of the whole brain, 40Hz synchronous oscillations connect mind, self and world into a meaningful whole.

 

Activating spiritual intelligence

The key to using “whole brain processing” to find the “self” is the ability to activate SQ – the spiritual intelligence function. 

Recent findings confirm spiritual intelligence is hard-wired in the human brain but SQ brain circuitry remains largely dormant and undeveloped due to lack of use. Random moments of spiritual intelligence occur spontaneously, but not often. If we can activate SQ intentionally, we convert spiritual intelligence from a random fleeting experience, into a valuable personal resource.

The qualities of spiritual intelligence are the native qualities of consciousness itself - wisdom, compassion, integrity, joy, love, creativity, and peace.

Consciousness comprises the conscious mind which contains all of the thoughts, memories, feelings, and wishes of which we are aware at any given moment. And it comprises the unconscious mind. A reservoir of feelings, thoughts, urges, and memories that are outside our immediate awareness – but are there all the same.

A reservoir of feelings, thoughts, urges, and memories that are outside our immediate awareness – but are there all the same.

The key to activating spiritual intelligence is therefore developing the neural pathways of consciousness itself. 

 

The role of brain plasticity in optimising spiritual intelligence

Studies on brain plasticity have established that neural pathways are highly malleable.  

New neural pathways grow quickly in the human brain, and are strengthened by sustained and repeated use. For example, taxi drivers have an enlarged part of the brain that deals with direction-finding and violin players one that deals with the left hand. Likewise, frequent use of the SQ neural network translates into a brain structurally and permanently polarised to spiritual intelligence by means of neuroplasticity. 

Consciousness, Spiritual Intelligence and the Brain

Recent studies challenge mainstream scientific orthodoxy that consciousness is a product of the brain. The experience of patients in surgery evidences that consciousness continues in the absence of brain activity. Specifically, patients gave accurate reports of events occurring in the operating theatre during the time their brains were not functioning. This suggests the brain is the receiver of consciousness, not the source of consciousness. As the qualities of spiritual intelligence are the native qualities of consciousness itself the assumption is we develop spiritual intelligence and self-knowledge by developing consciousness.

 

As was stated earlier in this article,  the existing focus of scientific reason and logic is too narrow to accommodate this framework. Science works well getting a single answer to a single question. Humans are more complex - there can be more than one answer to a good question. Indeed, all of us are guilty of being blinded by accepted orthodoxy to what, years later, seems obvious.

 

My own view is that this framework has potential to deliver a deeper understanding of the ungovernable mass of contradictions we're each made up of. It fills the gap between the vested interests of traditional scientific endeavour on one side and those of dogmatic religious/ non-religious beliefs on the other.

How we progress in future is then

Benefits

Benefits

Greater Spiritual Intelligence

Spiritual intelligence finds deeper meaning and purpose beyond your ego. By developing SQ the following benefits may accrue:

 

  • feel greater fulfilment 
  • find deeper meaning and purpose 
  • turn negative into positive thoughts & emotions
  • employ your full resources and be your best in any situation
  • wisdom  •  compassion  •  integrity  •  joy  •  love  •  creativity  •  peace
  • help others and improve society by using a higher dimension of your intelligence

 

Higher Performance and Personal Well-being

Intelligence Quotient (IQ) and Emotional Intelligence (EQ) represent Tactical Intelligence - the intelligence of how to get things done, intellectually and emotionally. 

In contrast, Spiritual Intelligence (SQ) is Strategic Intelligence, the intelligence of “WHY”. Spiritual intelligence answers the question of why to do anything because it has access to deeper meaning and purpose. 

Without Strategic intelligence, or spiritual intelligence, nothing has any meaning, so motivation fades, no matter how much Tactical Intelligence we may have. Consequently SQ is essential for high performance and personal wellness.

 

Greater Personal and Professional Growth and Fulfilment 

As the intelligence of the true self, beyond the ego, spiritual intelligence has many benefits that exceed the scope of intellectual intelligence and emotional intelligence. 

Freedom from ego grants wisdom and clarity of vision, combined with more empathy and compassion, which increases creativity and intuition, and results in greater personal fulfilment and better performance on important life skills and work skills. 

Spiritual intelligence therefore represents the most powerful resource for personal and professional growth and fulfilment.

Increased Social Justice and Human Rights 

Spiritual intelligence creates cooperation and tolerance between people at the interpersonal level, and between different groups in society, and between different cultures, religions, and nations. 

Widespread adoption of spiritual intelligence as a personal code of conduct raises the standard of accountability in collective governance in response to public demand. When standards in governments and corporations are based on spiritual intelligence resources are shared equally for the benefit of all.

Public training in spiritual intelligence has potential to beget a new era of social justice and human rights, which are the foundations of shared prosperity and peace. 

 

Boost Corporate Creativity, Innovation, Employee Engagement and Productivity

Research shows that when organisations invest in SQ training, creativity and innovation increase, employee engagement rises, and productivity grows. SQ training also reforms corporate governance by creating a culture that conducts business according to the ethics of spiritual intelligence. 

Moreover, by inspiring employees with a deeper sense of meaning and purpose, SQ training aligns organisations with a social mission beyond the profit motive. Corporations thus realise their full potential not only to maximise productivity, but also to contribute to societal well-being, by utilising the full range of their employees’ innate intelligence.

“……. provides a framework for understanding your own experience and for understanding the spiritual process. As a corporate lawyer of 25 years’ experience, this has been invaluable. What I learned has become the cornerstone of everything I do personally and professionally.”

Victoria Stewart – Corporate Lawyer

 

“……. I can honestly say I didn’t know what spiritual intelligence was. I thought my success was primarily dedicated by my IQ, and that this couldn’t be altered. Fortunately I now know differently and in doing so it has truly changed my life. SQ has enabled me to connect with myself and others on a far deeper level than I could ever comprehend. By exploring and deepening my SQ further I now feel at peace with myself, I feel centred, in control, I make better decisions and more quickly, my relationships have improved, I feel truly connected with myself and everything around me and I feel an inner confidence that I have never experienced before.

“It has been an amazing journey of self-discovery. SQ unlocks the power to unite mind, body and soul. It is the way forward in order to harness our strengths, help others and improve society. I look forward to using it in my work as a corporate trainer”

Anita DeMonte – Coach and Trainer

 

“SQ was the culmination of everything I had learned up to now about psychology and spirituality. The knowledge I acquired completed all my previous learning. As a life coach and trainer, I now have the best methodology for personal transformation for the benefit of clients.”

Zdenka Nikolovska – Corporate Trainer

 

“SQ is a radically clear, easy to understand explanation of what is often considered unfathomable.  What attracted me was the secular (non-theistic) nature of SQ in not imbuing words like “spirit” with religious meaning. SQ has given me tools to explain in my own work what I think about these complex issues is very helpful to clients who are struggling with these same questions.”

Jane Colebourn – CranioSacral Practitioner

 

 “SQ has not only greatly helped me in my personal growth but also inspired me to move ahead and use SQ in the work I do as a trainer and coach.”

Rajesh Naidu – Corporate Trainer

 

“When I first encountered SQ I was utterly shocked to discover that all my 20 years of spiritual quest in yoga and meditation practice, readings and understandings of spiritual matters have been summarized perfectly in such a precise and concise way. SQ brought such a clear understanding for me as a spiritual seeker, that I was shocked by the fact that I was not able to find this clarity in all those years of practice and searching.”

Bastianela Bente – Coach and Trainer

Testimonials

“……. provides a framework for understanding your own experience and for understanding the spiritual process. As a corporate lawyer of 25 years’ experience, this has been invaluable. What I learned has become the cornerstone of everything I do personally and professionally.”

Victoria Stewart – Corporate Lawyer

 

“……. I can honestly say I didn’t know what spiritual intelligence was. I thought my success was primarily dedicated by my IQ, and that this couldn’t be altered. Fortunately I now know differently and in doing so it has truly changed my life. SQ has enabled me to connect with myself and others on a far deeper level than I could ever comprehend. By exploring and deepening my SQ further I now feel at peace with myself, I feel centred, in control, I make better decisions and more quickly, my relationships have improved, I feel truly connected with myself and everything around me and I feel an inner confidence that I have never experienced before.

In Conclusion

From the early 17th century onwards, traditional religious explanations of life and reality gave way to fact based explanations based on the laws of physics. This replaced traditional upbeat religious views of humanity with one of meaninglessness, futility, pain, aberration, and despair.

However another structure has now arisen which fills the gap between the vested interests of traditional scientific endeavour on one side and those of dogmatic religious/ non-religious beliefs on the other.

 In 1900 scientists discovered phenomena that could not be explained by classical physics. This resulted in a new branch of physics called quantum mechanics which has since showed that conscious mental activity influences behaviour, that thoughts and emotions impact physiological systems, and that activities like emotional self-regulation and meditation influence brain activity. 

 For example, the experience of patients in surgery evidences that consciousness continues in the absence of brain activity. Specifically, patients gave accurate reports of events occurring in the operating theatre during the time their brains were not functioning. This suggests the brain is the receiver of consciousness, not the source of consciousness.

 In addition, research demonstrates that humans can mentally influence—at a distance—physical devices and living organisms. Whilst the underlying physics are not understood they demonstrate the need for a wider framework of research.  SQ is one such framework:-

In summary, you need IQ to get you into the job; EQ to do it well; and SQ to know “Why”

In summary, you need IQ to get you into the job; EQ to do it well; and SQ to know “Why”

My own view is that this framework has potential to deliver a deeper understanding of the ungovernable mass of contradictions making up each individual. It fills the gap between the vested interests of traditional scientific endeavour on one side and those of dogmatic religious/ non-religious beliefs on the other.

 

Spirituality is not religion. It is based on personal experience not on any particular religious beliefs and dogmas. Spirituality is secular. You can be of any religious belief or none. You can be atheist, agnostic or theist.

 

Our time on earth is limited. Smart people invest in education and knowledge with the aim of using it to improve their own lives and the lives of others. SQ gives an overview of how to journey to the self and the benefits are very clear:

 

  • Greater Spiritual Intelligence
  • Higher Performance and Personal Well being
  • Greater Personal and Professional Growth and Fulfilment
  • Increased Social Justice and Human Rights 
  • Boost Corporate Creativity, Innovation, Employee Engagement and Productivity

  

ARE YOU READY TO TAKE THE NEXT STEP?

 

As we mature, if we are open to it, it is natural to increasingly focus inward. The experience of years shouts out to us that our physical, mental, and emotional rhythms differ from other times in our lives. 

 People used to ‘doing’ may find it difficult to be ‘being’. It means finding balance between engaging with life and fulfilling our responsibilities and exploring our inner world.

 Cultivating self-awareness through SQ can also involve facing difficult or unpleasant thoughts and feelings. Pain is inevitable. On the other hand it can open and strengthen us is ways we have not anticipated. Leonard Cohen had the right of it:-

 

“there is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.”

 

 Another side of SQ is acceptance that:

 

Nothing lasts forever

Nothing is perfect

Nothing is ever finished

 

So how do you get SQ training to help yourself or to help others? This is important. Online spirituality has a wacky, airy fairy reputation with courses offered by self-obsessed weirdo’s with no scientific basis to their approach other than their feelings at that moment. The spirituality gained from such courses is fleeting, like feelings experienced watching a beautiful sunset – gone in minutes.

 

So I’ve done the heavy lifting for you. Whether you want to self-develop or train to  help others my reasons for recommending the 3Q Institute as the online course provider is based on:-

 

  • A non-secular approach to developing SQ skills which is independent of but complimentary to any belief system. 
  • Its adherence to open scientific method using secular science-based techniques based on findings in psychology and neuroscience, corroborated by the discoveries of spiritual traditions.
  • CEO is a highly experienced Psychologist. 
  • 3Q Institute offers a 100% money back guarantee so it is confident of its service.
  • Flexibility: You can develop your own SQ skills or do that and train for  a new career helping others 

 

You will find satisfaction if you do this. It is an effective method of shifting from who you think you are to who you really are and finally finding what you are missing. Why settle for less? The money-back guarantee means you have nothing to lose and everything to gain. 

 

You will learn everything you need to know so you can easily and quickly find who you are and start living as your true self. That’s the real satisfaction. But the real proof is when you experience SQ yourself. Then you will know.

 

THE TIME IS NOW!
