Your Past does Not Define You

meditation, Rewiring the Brain, The mind

Your PAST doesn’t define you.
What you do NOW defines you!

If you study the habits and traits of highly successful people, and the average or unsuccessful it is impossible not to see clear differences in their habits and thinking…
One of the biggest differences lie in THINKING and LIVING in the PAST, or planning into the FUTURE.

The majority, and by that i mean the average and underachieving among us, think PRIMARILY in the past.

“this is what happened to me, and if this didn’t happen to me i would be where i want to be today”
“i should have done this in the past, and now it’s too late”
“this person wronged me in the past, and that’s why I’m not where i want to be”

 

Living in the moment is not always easy. Sometimes our thoughts are overwhelmed by regrets about past events or anxiety about the future, which can make it hard to enjoy the present. If you are having a hard time living in the moment, there are some simple strategies that may help. There are little things that you can do throughout your day, such as creating a mindfulness cue, learning to meditate, and performing random acts of kindness

The successful one however thinks ONLY in THE NOW and into the FUTURE
THEY SET GOALS INTO THE FUTURE. Clear targets to push them forward… To light their fire within and give them PASSION for living.
THEY VISUALIZE THE RESULTS coming to reality into the future…

They see the FUTURE reward, not the initial struggle to bring it to life.
NOT ‘what i have to go through to get there’ but ‘How will i feel when i get there’!
And the only way to get to the future, to the big reward, is to have powerful action in the NOW. In this powerful present moment.

All successful people know that each positive and productive present moment leads to a positive and successful FUTURE moment.

Use your past as fuel to take you wherever you need to go!
If you ever look back, make sure it is only to DRIVE YOU FORWARD!

Don’t blame others for YOUR situation. Rely on YOURSELF to create a new situation.

Your FUTURE starts TODAY not tomorrow. Plan now, live now!

Don’t let your PAST define YOUR FUTURE!
Don’t you dare let PAST failures get in the way of your FUTURE success!

 

It doesn’t matter what happened in the past. The only thing that matters is what you are going to do RIGHT NOW! What are you going to do right now?!

My Anxiety Tool Box

Rewiring the Brain

Tools to overcome anxiety

 

First you must understand the very basic of how the mind works.  The Conscious and Sub Conscious Mind. 

Conscious Mind

This is the mind that teaches you a new skill.  Let’s say for example Driving a Car.  First you learn to look in the mirrors, how to work the clutch, the gears, the signals and you learn the rules of the road.  You have so much to think about, so you are fully engaged with the conscious mind.  Once you have been driving a while you soon don’t have to think about driving, you may find you drive to work and don’t even know how you got there.  So how is your mind able to think about other things, such as what your having for tea or where your going out after work whilst your driving?? Your subconscious mind has taken over and has driven you to work.  The subconscious mind is in control 95% of your day.  So what other programme ‘s have been set into the subconscious mind?? 

Anxiety? When you think a thought and pop an emotion behind it, it gets stored into your subconscious mind.  Lets repeatedly think anxious thought and hey presto…You now have an anxiety disorder?  This then leads to avoiding certain situations as that feeling is just too overwhelming to even want to put yourself in that position. 

The brain is naturally there to protect you, but when you become anxious over everything, the brain goes into fight or flight.  It is simply doing its job. 

Okay so that’s all well and good, but how the heck do we reprogramme it.  Well the same way you programmed it for anxiety.  Repeat, Repeat, Repeat the positive emotion until it is stored into your subconscious brain.  How do we do this?? I have a few techniques that I use myself and find that these work.  This takes time and practice and lots of patience and a lot of kindness towards yourself.  You will have bad days…but just as long as you keep on practicing the techniques then these bad days will be less and less, and you can begin to enjoy your life again.

 

Techniques

First and most importantly is BREATHING – So Navy Seals practice a lot of mindful training in order to remain calm in the most dangerous of situations.  We are not Navy Seals and are  not faced with war but in our mind we might as well be.  Practice this technique DAILY – and when your anxiety goes up then you will have this in your TOOL BOX to pull out and help you remain calm

Tool Kit 1

Box BREATHING

Box breathing is a technique used to calm yourself down with a simple 4 second rotation of breathing in, holding your breath, breathing out, holding your breath, and repeating.

Also known as Navy SEAL breathing technique, or tactical breathing, it’s a surprisingly simple and effective way to help regain calm and control of your thoughts when under stress.

https://quietkit.com/box-breathing/  – This is a site that will help you with this technique

Tool Box 2 – 54321 (Mel Robbins)

Technique 2 – Anxiety and Excitement are very similar, they just have different thoughts but produce the same feelings.  So this next technique is going to teach you to quickly interrupt anxiety in its tracks and pop in a new emotion. 

As soon as you feel anxiety, you say to yourself or out loud CHANGE 5,4,3,2,1 and really amplify that good emotion.  This interrupts the neural pathways in the brain and installs a new better emotion

Tool Box 3 – Self Talk

Self-Talk – So Vital.  Being aware of what you say to yourself daily is so important.  Start of by keeping a thought journal so you are aware of the thoughts that are on repeat.  We then need new self-talk.  Pick an affirmation and repeat this with a strong loving emotion behind it. 

Mine is – I am strong, I am calm.  I also have a few people that I imagine whilst I say these, and this helps me to feel like if they can do it then so can I. 

——————————————————————————————-

Books I found very useful – Dr Joe Dispenza – Breaking the habit of being yourself.    Mindfulness books – mindfulness-guide-for-the-frazzled.

Mindfulness Meditation is so important, so the nervous system can relax, and we can have a few moments out of living in our head.  There is a lot on YouTube to listen to or there is a Headspace app which is very good.

CBD Oil is amazing for helping the mind to relax and helping you sleep.

Essential oils are also very good for anxiety – Lavender or geranium etc

Diet is extremely important.  Caffeine, Sugar and Gluten can all cause us to have anxiety.  Make sure you are not deficient in certain vitamins and minerals as well.  Magnesium deficiency or anaemia can cause the same symptoms as anxiety.

 

**Note – I am not a medical doctor or counsellor.   I am a holistic therapist and a person who has suffered many years with anxiety and I know what works for me and a lot of my clients. 

 

 

Dan Milman – The Four Purposes of Life

meditation, Rewiring the Brain, The mind

“Where are you? … HERE”
“What time is it? … NOW”
“What are you? … THIS MOMENT.”

Just watching Dan Millman on the Four Purposes of Life on Gaia.com and he has some great insights to how we travel throughout our life.  I love his books and need to just re read them all the time so I can have these golden nuggets of wisdom sink into my brain.  Some of the following are the lessons I have learned from Dan so far.

Its fine to dream BIG but start small and take small steps at a time.  So if you want to start meditating then start with just a few minutes a day.  A little of something is better than a lot of nothing.

What is my Purpose?? – There are four of them – Career (Income) *Our Calling – Do what you love * (Time stands still or speeds up) Our life path or Hidden Calling – (our calling is what we may have pushed back) * attending to this arising moment.

 

While experience and wisdom is important, in the Way of the Peaceful Warrior, Socrates teaches Dan that there’s a difference between Knowing and Doing. You can know what to do or understand something, but you don’t really KNOW it until you’re DOING it.

I can relate to this with my meditation practice and my reiki healing practice.  Sometimes I can sit and read and reread and write out plans etc but without the practice then it really means very little.  Recently I enrolled in a raw food course and wrote out a lot of recipes and shopping lists and was so pumped about starting this journey.  But after a few days I was back to eating cooked processed foods so I started to read up again and watch youtube videos on raw food all whilst eating cooked food and feeling so deflated and disappointed in myself.  So this in my life is teaching me that I can read as much as I like but without putting it into practice it does not bring me inner joy or contentment.

A big theme in the Way of the Peaceful Warrior that Socrates instills in Dan is the power of NOW. The only time that matters is RIGHT NOW, this moment.  This moment is all that we have. Yesterday is gone, and tomorrow doesn’t exist. But, the problem with most people is that we live in our heads. We live in either the past or the future.

All stress and fear exists in either the past or the future. In fact, fear is just anticipation of pain. If you can truly live in the moment and get out of your head, you can be free of all of the garbage in your head and perform at levels you never thought possible. Not only that, but you can be at peace.

Peaceful Warrior Dan Millman

Being in the moment is a practice. It’s a practice that Dan focuses on throughout the book that changes his life for the better. He shares his experiences learning meditation and learning to be more and more present. There’s one part in the book where Socrates throws Dan over a bridge into the water, just to clear his mind. He then describes to Dan how there are no ordinary moments – that there is never nothing going on.  The truth is, there is so many amazing things going on at any given moment, but we’re too much inside of our heads to notice it.

The lesson here is simple: nothing in your outer world will ever make you happy or fulfilled. Happiness can only come from the inside. When you truly come to this realization and stop deluding yourself, you can gain that sense of peace and satisfaction within.

Rewire for Confidence

Rewiring the Brain

The adult brain is much more changeable and modifiable than had previously been believed. There is now a large amount of evidence to show that damaged neural (brain) circuitry resulting from severe childhood trauma can be corrected, reshaping our brain anatomy and consequent behaviour, with the right kind of therapeutic interventions. In other words, it is now clear that brain architecture continues to change throughout adulthood, and this can be manipulated in highly beneficial directions

Your brain is constantly adapting and rewiring itself. Your thoughts and behaviors influence this process. If certain thoughts and behaviors are repeated often enough, a strong connection, also known as a neural pathway, is created.

One reason why it is so difficult to change the way you think, feel, and behave is that your beliefs and corresponding neural pathways have been formed early in life. They have been reinforced and strengthened, over and over again. In other words, your brain activity has carved out a deep and well traveled road. If that road remains and no new roads are built and strengthened, it is very difficult to change your ways, and you will easily fall back into old patterns. Creating and strengthening new, positive neural pathways is an essential part of achieving lasting change.

The good news is that we all have the ability to learn and change by rewiring our brains. If you have ever changed a bad habit, or thought about something differently, you have carved a new pathway in your brain, experiencing neuroplasticity firsthand. With repeated and directed attention towards your desired change, you can effectively rewire your brain to move forward and live a healthy, abundant life.

 

So to be confident is to take action, but how does one begin acting confidently? Practice playing the confidence scales, i.e., take small steps in your daily life that accumulate into confidence. 

  • Reinforce and internalize every positive experience, no matter how small.
  • Remember, in detail, the best memories you have had when you were confident or really in a flow state.
  • Intentionally call up your strengths and focus on how good it is to feel strong, confident, etc…
  • Set goals (intentions) and be sure all levels of your nervous system (thoughts, emotions, intentions, arousal) are all in sync. Then, act as if you have already achieved your goal.

Consciously practice thinking, feeling, visualizing and acting in alignment with your desired intention. When you do this you will stop the unconscious habit of recycling the past and activate your ability to rewire your brain in the present moment.

 

Power Poses – When we change our physiology we change the way we think, act and behave.  

 

 

Friendships go a lot deeper than we think.

meditation, Rewiring the Brain, The mind

Dr joe dispenza recent blog re friendship and how our close relationships with our friends can go a lot more deeper than we think.

 

A recent study published in Nature Communications suggests the brains of close friends respond in remarkably similar ways. The study was conducted by having two groups of people—some friends and others not friends—view a series of short videos. While viewing the videos, and at the same time having their brains scanned, the results of the friend groups were startling. It turns out they shared the same ebbs and swells of attention and distraction, the same peaks of reward processing at certain parts of the videos, and the same levels of boredom in response to others. The neural response patterns evoked amongst friends proved so similar (versus the patterns witnessed among people who were not friends) that over time, the researchers could predict the strength of two people’s social bond based on their brain scans alone.

This is why doing the meditations daily is vital to creating your new future. Every time you meditate you change your brain and body to be greater than your environment. When we makes these changes enough times, we no longer belong to the past—we belong to the future. Is it possible then that when you change your brain to become greater than your environment you will begin meeting new people and creating new relationships with people who share a new brain frequency? Now that’s evolution.

The Voice inside your head

Rewiring the Brain, The mind

In case you haven’t noticed, you have a mental dialogue going on inside your head that never stops. It just keeps going and going. Have you ever wondered why it talks in there? How does it decide what to say and when to say it? How much of what it says turns out to be true? How much of what it says is even important? And if right now you are hearing, I don’t know what you’re talking about. I don’t have any voice inside my head!–that’s the voice we’re talking about.”. –Taken from “The Untethered Soul”, by Michael A. Singer

Michael Singer is among many who have developed their consciousness to a level of awareness and he has surrender to his thoughts

 

 

How would you feel if someone outside really started talking to you the way your inner voice does? How would you relate to a person who opened their mouth to say everything your mental voice says? After a very short period of time, you would tell them to leave and never come back. But when your inner friend continuously speaks up, you don’t ever tell it to leave. No matter how much trouble it causes, you listen.” ― Michael A. Singer, The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself

So many great people are teaching consciousness, its something we need to practice on a daily basis in order for us to improve ourselves and our minds.  I, like many others are on a journey into self discovery and I want to improve my mind so my sub conscious emotions don’t take over and run my day.

Kyle Cease – brings comedy to consciousness

meditation, mind hacking, Rewiring the Brain, The mind

Omg where the helk has this guy been hiding or have I simply not been in alignment with him or am I only ready now to hear his words.

So I’ve been meditating for few years now and slowly uncovering all the darkness within me and bringing it into the light. It’s not easy confronting fears, even the ones I made up in my head which is practically all of them.

Eckharte tolle the power of now opened up my eyes to my journey into developing my consciousness and mindfulness practice along with Jon kabat zinn work on MBSR.

But Kyle Cease seems to combine all these teachings with great humour. There is so many AHA moments followed by laughter and then some more self realisation.

I am just so grateful that I am finding these truly amazing people and their words are like gold.

Please, if you are into developing your inner self and wanting to know more about the mind and well life in general then listen to this guy.. I can’t even explain how fantastic he really is.

Trigger Unconsciousness in You?

meditation, Rewiring the Brain

I love listening to Eckhart tolle and reading his books ‘The power of Now’ and ‘A New Earth’

In our day to day life we can use every situation as a time to Practice being mindful. We must first become aware of the times when we are unconscious.

“What are the moments of life that tend to trigger unconsciousness in you?” says Eckhart

Unconsciousness, spiritually speaking, means that you are ‘taken over’ by reactive habitual patterns of thinking and behavior. You become angry, defensive, moody or negative.

Some people are very mindful … until money issues come up, and then there is fear and panic. For others it’s jealousy that takes them over or it could be that when you talk to certain people (like your parents) you ‘lose it’ in some way, maybe becoming frustrated, judgmental or impatient. Take a moment and look at the last week or even just the last day and see what has triggered you to become unconscious. This way, these triggers lose their power to pull us into unconsciousness and negativity.

We can now meet those triggers from a new place of heightened awareness and can choose new responses rather than ‘falling into’old reactions.

Ok I’ve had quite a few today already After visiting an elderly client for her weekly reflexology session I couldn’t help but notice how impeccably neat her house was. Everything had its place and was so colour co-ordinated. I couldn’t help but feel envious of this lady, which sounds so strange as she is in great pain all day and it takes her great effort just to get out of bed. But even so I did and I left her house heading straight for mine.

I must minimise my life and create an order. But with three kids, a dog and 2 guinea pigs it just isn’t going to be that easy. My partner arrives home to chaos and I’m sure he is away to sit down and watch TV, well that would irritate me greatly. So I suggest he helps as I need to clear cupboards and drawers and all the kids clothing. I hear him moan from the kitchen about doing the dishes. I can feel anger build up inside me, why can’t he just get on with it and be happy. Then I think we are not suited anymore as he doesn’t think the way I do and he is so moany and shouty and he is just dampening my inner happiness.

SHUT THE FRONT DOOR….all the chaos was created by me for me?? This is one of my triggers. Oh dear lord. AWARENESS kicks in. RETREAT to my bedroom to so some self reflection. And try to start my day from now, with appreciation for any help given and a few hugs here and there and note in my journal.

Thoughts upon thoughts. And relax xx

Consciousness Calibration

meditation, Rewiring the Brain, The mind

Concerning consciousness calibration, there are some very interesting facts.

* Powerful patterns are associated with health; weak patterns are associated with sickness. Every thought, emotion, word & action has one pattern or the other. Every moment of our day we are either moving towards health or sickness.

* Everything calibrates at certain levels from weak to high including books, food, water, clothes, people, animals, buildings, cars, movies, sports, music etc.

* A good amount of the music today calibrates at levels below 200. Hence it leads to behavior associated with lower energy levels of consciousness.

* Most movies will weaken people who watch them by bringing their energy levels down below the 200 level of consciousness.

* 85% of the human race calibrates below the critical level of 200.

* The power of the few individuals at the top counterbalances the weakness of the masses.

o 1 individual at level 300 counterbalances 90,000 individuals below level 200

o 1 individual at level 400 counterbalances 400,000 individuals below level 200

o 1 individual at level 500 counterbalances 750,000 individuals below level 200

o 1 individual at level 600 counterbalances 10 million individuals below level 200

o 1 individual at level 700 counterbalances 70 million individuals below level 200

o 12 individuals at level 700 equal one Avatar (eg. Buddha, Jesus, Krishna) at level 1,000

* Any meaningful human satisfaction cannot even commence until the level of 250 where some degree of self-confidence begins to emerge.

* When one’s consciousness falls below 200 at any given moment you start to lose power and thus grow weaker and more prone to be manipulated by one’s surroundings.

* Parts of one’s life will calibrate at a higher level of consciousness while other parts will calibrate a lower levels. It’s the overall average that determines one’s consciousness.

My Top Tips to Reduce Anxiety

mind hacking, Rewiring the Brain, The mind

Sometimes we don’t even realise we are anxious then something hits us and all of a sudden we are in the midst of panic.  It could be in the middle of the night, we could be sound asleep then all of a sudden we are awake sweating, heart pumping fast, feeling so sick with fear and for no apparent reason.  Cortisol Levels are through the roof and leaves us feeling emotional drained and our energy levels at an all time low.

I have been there more times than I care to remember and it is the reason I am so interested in the how the brain works.  After reading many books and watching some amazing TedTalks, I put into practice ways to rewire my brain.

 

Firstly STOP thinking about Anxiety, start creating the New You.  What you focus on You get more of, so Stop thinking about how scared you feel and start practicing how you would like to feel.  I picked a few people to research, Will Smith was my first personality, he has some amazing interviews of YouTube.  So going to parties or events, I would train myself to adopt a more positive posture whilst going over how Will Smith would act, (sounds silly but really does work)

Secondly, Breathe…Yes simple but its the one thing we feel we are short of when we are feeling anxious.  Start Counting in for 4 hold and out for 4, I also try and visualise a time when I felt confident and happy and breathe in and out from my heart, breathing long and deep sends the signal straight back to help the brain relax.

 

Do core or control based movements (such as yoga, pilates, dancing, tai chi etc). Challenge yourself to fully engage your brain and focus on the activity. Make sure it involves deep core contractions, and has an element of difficulty for your balance.  recommend at least 5-10 minutes of different movements; you could add triangle or tree pose. Focus on your deep core contractions and the control of the movement. Then just switch your mind off and allow your cortex to take over.

 Go through a series of isolated muscle relaxation exercises. Focus on different groups such as your shoulders, forearms, legs etc and actively let them go. Feel the tension releasing and floating away. Again, because stress makes us tense our muscles, by actively relaxing we are sending a subconscious signal back to the brain that everything is ok.

Perform for at least 5 minutes in a comfortable environment.

It can be quite liberating to know that simply moving your body in certain ways can modulate your internal responses to emotional stress, keeping you healthy and more relaxed!th5US9INIU
