We can choose to stimulate the amygdala forward, turning on the reward centers for positive emotions. When the amygdala is stimulated forward it's sending signals to the frontal lobes. This is where the brain handles cognitive functions such as long-term decision making and appropriate social actions. These functions can play a major role in determining levels of success and happiness. When the amygdala signals backwards it's inducing a fear response. It is a state handled by the lower level reptilian brain, responsible for base instincts. Needless to say, thinking motivated by this part of the brain is not well suited for modern society.
These responses, both positive and negative, are hard wired. However, because of how clever we humans are we can consciously control our responses, taking charge of our reactions to the environment...
Stimulating the amygdala with regular practice can help you enter a psychological state of flow. In this state you can easily overcome problems and disregard distractions. Being in flow results in single-minded focus and joy that comes from losing yourself in productive activity. Trivial issues don't slow you down when you are actively engaged and living creatively.
The Amgydala Technique
Amgydala Frontal Skull View
The crux of the program at Lingo's brain lab hinged on voluntary self-control of the anterior amygdala. Self-amygdala stimulation can be performed by using the brain's capacity for guided imagery. The following meditation is designed to stimulate the anterior portion of the amgydala. It is composed of 3 parts and lasts for about 17 minutes. Close the eyes, sit in an upright posture and listen to the recording with a good quality stereo headset.
Theta binaural to put the brain into optimal creative mode (this starts after about 30 seconds of silence)
Theta binaural continues as the background of the repetitive chanting of the mantra AUM - during this phase one should imagine the front part of each amgydala is being activated by the vibrations of the mantra, and see them glowing white, illuminating the frontal cortex
Theta binaural continues then fades to silence. During this phase imagine the frontal lobes are glowing from the illumination of the amgydala, that continue to be activated and are glowing white.
This imaging alone increases frontal lobes activity and begins increases in creativity and intelligence. The more frequently you conduct this meditation, the more pronounced the results. These changes are measurable by modern brain scanning medical instruments such as PET and MRI machines. The brain is a thought machine and one controls the brain and it's electro-chemical circuitry with simple thought. This simple meditation brings immediate results, with sometimes very pronounced effects. Overtime the results become permanent.
When a person repeatedly stimulates the anterior amygdala and voluntarily increase frontal lobes processes at will, it can eventually result in a very intense peak phenomenon known as "frontal lobes transcendence" or "popping your frontal lobes". This occurred regularly at the brain lab. Says Neil Slade "generally, this phenomenon can't be predicted exactly - more like when a soap bubble is ready to pop".

Currently studying the Lower beings.
Some characters have the ability to continue to speak while awake.
So, I suspect demons trying to create connections towards memory acquisition and eventual possession.
Tactics I consider ineffective:
Giving them emotional attention is the worst because it furthers the goal of developing connections.
Ignoring them results in bombardment of negativity without any positivity to counter.
Not thinking or focusing on the loudest feeling results possibly overlooking other subtle workings.
Tactics I consider effective:
Rather than responding to them, counter their negativity with a positive self-affirmation directed towards oneself.
Feeling the sense and what is being received rather than the end result;
Develop very fine senses for how you are thinking, and what you are sensing.
Look at them objectively rather than subjectively, like you are a scientist

Actually don't know anything about these centers of toggle spots. Read an excercise where you picture feathers tickling them. The experience was akin to having headphones very light ones, placed just in front of my ears, and everything vibrated.
But it didn't involve any fear at all.
So I've been trying to gather up info on this area.
