About Isil

Bio

I am from Turkey. I studied political sciences and worked as a Turkish diplomat for 8 years. Then I resigned to follow my dream to establishing my own foreign trade company. Currently I am indeed working in this company. I am a typical enterpreneur - yet I do foreing trade like an artist would make a painting. With enthusiasm and inspiration. I am quite idealistic and very much interested in creativity, inventions, discovering new ways of looking at life, at problems and finding new solutions. I am interested in humanity, sciences, technology, psychology, arts and everything that is beautiful, inspirational, informative and useful. I define myself as an incurable "Curious Soul" :-). I even have a group in Turkey, called "Curious Souls Get Together" in which we have monthly meetings. We get together to watch interesting TED Talks and have an exchange of views on each talk we watch. It is simply extraordinary to see the ideas prolifer. (Pls. see my blog with the title "Curious Souls Get Together"Furthermore, I am a recently trained Advanced Hypnotist and NLP Practitioner. I work at a Psychoterapy Center once a day as their Hipnotist. I am simply amazed at the results. I feel as if though I found a magic wand and whoever I touch, heals :-))

An idea worth spreading

We need to take into account the mechanisms of the subconscious mind in order to bring concrete and speedy solutions to problems as well as increase happiness in the world.

I'm passionate about

Creativity, novelty, curiousity, science, technology, education, pscholog, specifically hypnosis and NLP, beauty, art, sharing of ideas, inspirational stories and TED Talks

People don't know I'm good at

Hypnosis :-)

Elliot Krane: The mystery of chronic pain
Please check the talk of Ms. Kristin Rivas with the title "life-changing power of words" at TEDxRainier. (I watched it on youtube) She is a hypnotist and explains very well, on how she was cured, simply in one hypnosis session, out of a cripling disease. I think it is too much of a luxury not to take into consideration the possibilities and opportunities through working with hypnosis and NLP. There is too much suffering in the world and a lot of them can be lifted quite easily. (I do it here and thus it is a fact. I see it.) I recommend Mr. Krane to look into this matter and I would be really interested about learning the outcomes of his findings in this respect. Best regards.

Elliot Krane: The mystery of chronic pain
As a recently trained hipnotist and NLP practitioner, I need to stress the importance of modifications that can be made through hypnosis and NLP. I am completely surprised each day at the extent and the speed with which change and healing can occur. I see that it is simply possible to lift and end phobias in 1 or a few sessions for example. Otherwise people go to pschotherapy for years. If I have to summarise the mechanism, it is as follows: The subconscious mind deep down, has two basic aims - to keep the person (us) safe and to make sure that he/she is loved-i.e. happy. When there is a problem in either one of these, then problems arise in several different forms. Actually those problems are not problems according to the subconscious mind. They are communication methods with the person in order to prevent or protect from something. For example phobias aim at preventing a person from facing danger, or if the person believes deep down that he/she is not worth being loved, then subconscious prevents the person from forming relationships in order to prevent suffering. In hypnosis, the filters of the conscious mind opens and it is then possible to talk to the subconscious. Yet subconscious does not understand words :-), is like a not-so-clever 10 year old child with no notion of past, present or future. Thus, through its language, if you can give assure the subconsicous that everything is allright and the person is secure and loved, then the interpretation of threat immediately disappears and suddenly everything starts to change. Just like a miracle! Amazing and unbelievable! Yet the mechanism is there and repeatable. And I have to say that I am really surprised on why this method is not put to wider use in all walks of life. Concerning the case here as well, most probably subconscious interprets an exaggarated threat-which we do not have to find out how and if we can lift that threat through hypnosis and NLP, I am sure the pain will disappear.

Stephen Cave: The 4 stories we tell ourselves about death
Very interesting talk. I loved watching it and I agree with the idea that death is not a part of us until we die and when we die, we don't realise it- so there is no need to worry after all. However, we are social animals, we live in societies and care for our loved ones too. As a result, for some people like myself, fear of death is more frightening when it concerns a loved one rather than my own. So death in this respect still remains to be a fearful event. Additionally, our lives are constantly filled with future expectations, plans and anxieties. We hardly can manage to stay in the moment and observe rather than being anxious about possible future events. An important reasons for death to be a a fearful event in this respect, is not only limited to because of what we think will come after death, but also because it is an unknown as to when it will come, how it will take place and whether it will involve a lot of pain and suffering or not. So, realisation that once we die, we do not experience it, and thus we can say that death will not exist for us, is a bit incomplete. For human beings, a decrease in the fear of death, should also involve in a change of how we view and cope with the unknown and possible pain and suffering we may go through for it. The funny method I use for coping the unknown is to say to myself: "unknown is unknown, so why worry before it is known" :-)) For the anxiety about possible pain and suffering that I catch fearing about, I say to myself (sometimes without success of course) that I should stop fearing because "there is no one on earth that was not able, or cannot go through pain and suffering when it happens to them. Nor could they prevent it by fearing beforehand. So fearing doesn't work and makes it worse. If ever you face it, you can go through it, you can live it and maybe die because of it but until then, don't worry about it! Thand you again Stephen for this mind opening talk.

Philippe Starck: Design and destiny
I found this talk truely amazing! What an interesting and witty way of explaining the journey of the human kind. Although Mr. Starck expresses everything in a very humorous and seemingly simple way, his talk is deeply philosophical. He definitaley has a vision that is beyond what many can see and that explains why he can indeed design so powerfully. His philosophy and understanding of life is embedded in it. I thank you Mr.Starck for this talk that indeed gave me a new perspective for the human journey and that broadened my horison.

Arthur Benjamin: A performance of "Mathemagic"
Absolutely fantastic! I wonder what portion of his ability can be learned and used by general public if his calculation system -which absolutely seems like magic to us- were made a part of regular student education. Could we all have arrived at calculating squares of 3 digits, as easily as we learn how to read? If we knew, for example, that with a special brain training technique, we could learn how to fly like birds (we would no longer need cars by the way -wouldn't it be fun :-)), would anybody or any country consider not including this training system in their education?. Of course not. I feel that such interesting abilities like "mathemagic", like speed reading and several others are very much similar to the above example I gave. We know that it is possible to fly by training in a special way and we still do not make it a part of our general public education? I once met a 14 year old girl in Azarbaidjan, who, at the age of 7, received a speed reading training in Russia for 6 months. At age 14, I was totally amazed to learn that she read almost all of the major Russian classics! What a fastinating difference it made...!

Abraham Verghese: A doctor's touch
Dear Fatma, I am so sorry to learn that you suffered so much because of your disease until it was correctly diagnosed. In fact, I think the doctors are in a dilemma as well. They are withnesses to so much pain and suffering that they need to learn to stay distant or disassociate themselves from sufferings. Otherwise, they can hardly function. However, this tendency reaches such high levels in some doctors that they just do not care about the patient anymore - they see him as a case. I remember once, when my mother was going to be operated, the doctor started explaining to his colleague how and where he intended to cut my mother's throat and how he woulld proceed during the operation that he just totally didn't realise that with all his words we were almost in tears of fear. This is too hurtful and disturbing. I think a balance in this respect is needed. A doctor should be empathetic and understanding while at the same time, able to stay distant to the harmful effects of negative emotions and pain. This is as much important in the career development of a doctor as the medical knowledge that he acquires. I wonder if such phychological training is given to doctors or not? That should be a pre-requisite of being a doctor. This is also in line with my macro - micro theory in my comment above. Totally different aspects of life should come to harmony in order to make greatness. This seems to be one of the secrets of life.

When you watch this video about Ron Macullum who was blind at birth, it does inspire you to do something positive about your life
Actually it just inspired me to establish a system that we may call My Blind Buddy". I just wrote the details of it in my comment to Mr.McCallum's talk. I am quoting the relative parts of it. (If anybody is interested in taking part in or contributing to such an organisation, with his/her proposal, comments,experience or financial means, please contact me. I will try to find out how we can realise such a project. I just noted down some ideas: http://myblindbuddy.wordpress.com/) "...So this talk inspired me to imagine an organisation where one blind person from a country becomes a "buddy" of another blind one in another country.Something in a way similar to the "buddy check" system available in diving where these two buddies keep an eye on each other underwater. We can call our system something like "My Blind Buddy" and each buddy should have a mission to seek to contribute to the life of the other. If one is from a developped and the other less developped country the better. Of course the "buddy" from the developped world might seem to be less advantageous in such a partnership but this way, he or she not only finds a life-long friend but also discovers the pleasure of contributing to the life of someone else like him or her, yet who is much less fortunate. This will give a different meaning to their lives and they will surely also discover that instances that seem like misfortune can sometimes be totally irrelevant when one finds out the extraordinary abilities gained through disabilities.Just like Mr. McCallum who definitaley gained the extraordinary abiltiy to inspire for making a change in the world for the disabled.",

Ron McCallum: How technology allowed me to read
Just an addition to my comment ! In case you are interested in establishing a non-profit system like "My Blind Buddy", if you have any proposals or comments, or if you are experienced in forming such organisations, would you contact me? I just put on some ideas on a page (http://myblindbuddy.wordpress.com/) It would be good to have this inspiration come true!
