The Voice inside your head

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

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?

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

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

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

Reprogramming the Mind – Adios Negativity

Say Goodbye to Negative Feelings – Reprogramming Your Mind

Your Journey is Your Own No one else can do this for You.

Understanding the Mind – Read first this handout so you understand a little about how your mind works.

I will list all the tips that will help you if You do these on a daily basis to begin with.

Heart Based Breathing

Focus on Your heart area breathe in for 5 hold out for 5 hold and do this for 5 breathes whilst imagining the breathe coming in from the heart and out from the heart. Now recreate a good memory and really feel it from your heart.

Introduction to Mindfulness.

These Mindfulness techniques will help in all areas of your life if you practice them.

A Simple Meditation Practice
1. Sit comfortably. Find a spot that gives you a stable, solid, comfortable seat.
2. Notice what your legs are doing. If on a cushion, cross your legs comfortably in front of you. If on a chair, rest the bottoms of your feet on the floor.
3. Straighten your upper body—but don’t stiffen. Your spine has natural curvature. Let it be there.
4. Notice what your arms are doing. Situate your upper arms parallel to your upper body. Rest the palms of your hands on your legs wherever it feels most natural.
5. Soften your gaze. Drop your chin a little and let your gaze fall gently downward. It’s not necessary to close your eyes. You can simply let what appears before your eyes be there without focusing on it.
6. Feel your breath. Bring your attention to the physical sensation of breathing: the air moving through your nose or mouth, the rising and falling of your belly, or your chest.
7. Notice when your mind wanders from your breath. Inevitably, your attention will leave the breath and wander to other places. Don’t worry. There’s no need to block or eliminate thinking. When you notice your mind wandering gently return your attention to the breath.
8. Be kind about your wandering mind. You may find your mind wandering constantly—that’s normal, too. Instead of wrestling with your thoughts, practice observing them without reacting. Just sit and pay attention. As hard as it is to maintain, that’s all there is. Come back to your breath over and over again, without judgment or expectation.
9. When you’re ready, gently lift your gaze (if your eyes are closed, open them). Take a moment and notice any sounds in the environment. Notice how your body feels right now. Notice your thoughts and emotions.

Thought Journal

Keeping a meditation journal helps us have a more definite sense of what is actually going on. When we sit down after meditation and take a few minutes to journal what we’ve been experiencing, it makes it pretty obvious how effective we’ve really been. If we examine our experience, honestly and with a desire to learn, then we become much more aware of what our meditation practice actually is. We can become more aware of our weaknesses and our strengths, and have a much more penetrating understanding of what we need to be working on.
A journal also allows us to look back at our experience as it has changed over a period of time. We can review several days, weeks, or months of our practice and learn about the patterns that our consciousness follows. Perhaps we’ll discover that we are lazier than we thought, or perhaps that we try too hard, or perhaps even that we fluctuate in our efforts. We may discover that there are particular distractions that are much more common that we had recalled. We commonly also discover – especially when we’re feeling a little down – that our meditation practice has been more effective and enjoyable than we had remembered.
And our journaling can help us to set goals. It’s not that we try to pin down our experience before it happens – that’s rarely if ever going to work and it’s more likely to result in frustration than in any progress in our meditation practice. Instead what we’re trying to do in setting goals is to develop a stronger sense of where we want to go in our meditation practice. Through looking back at our past experience we can see what we need to work on. Perhaps it’s forgiveness or patience that we need to develop. Perhaps it’s more persistence. Or more calmness. Whatever changes we want to make, having clear goals will help us attain them.

Gratitude
Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.” – Oprah Winfrey
Taking a few minutes a day to write down what do have will change your life.
Use gratitude to restart your life by appreciating what you have in life.
The more you realize and appreciate all that you already have and all that you already are, the more that you will get.
When you wake up in the morning, this is what you should ask yourself.
“What am I truly grateful for in my life?” pick 3 – 5 things that you are grateful and really apprecate and feel the emotions.
So for example I am grateful for my children, I visualize them and really appreciate every thing about them I can smell their little hot heads and feel their cute little cheeks whilst I kiss them and just feel so lucky that they are healthy and happy little children.
Really feel with every sense in your body how truly grateful you are, even if it is for a simple cup of coffee or a stranger who has opened a door for you.

Incantations
How To Use Incantations
Once you’ve created it, recite your incantation to yourself loudly and with passion, placing emphasis on different words. Engage your emotions and physiology. When saying your incantation be sure it is congruent to how you want to feel in that moment.
As you’re repeating your incantation, allow your mind to see or imagine that which you are incanting. What does that mean?
Let’s say you’re using the example above as your incantation – “I’m so happy I can’t stop smiling”.
Allow you mind’s eye to see images of yourself radiating a beautiful and happy smile. And having said that, it would make sense for you to put a smile on your face while you’re actually repeating the incantation.
You Must Condition Incantations Into Your Nervous System
You will want to condition your incantations into your nervous system so that it becomes part of you, helping you to transform your life. How do you “condition them into your nervous system”? Repetition!
Tony Robbins has been doing his incantations for three decades or more. Reciting incantations helps move you to create the emotional intensity you need to have an outstanding quality of life!

Rewiring my brain

At 38 years old I have a lot of years of programming and some is not the best.  How do I know this? I take a look at my life and see what is working, and what is not working.

The subconscious mind stores all of your previous life experiences, your beliefs, your memories, you skills, all situations you’ve been through and all images you’ve ever seen.

The best way to understand the subconscious mind is to look at the example of the person who wants to learn how to drive a car. At the beginning he wouldn’t be able to hold a conversation with anyone while driving as he would be focusing on the different moves involved. That’s because he’s still using his conscious mind to drive.

The subconscious mind; your Autopilot!

Few weeks later driving becomes a natural habit that happens automatically without needing to think about it. That person could even start using his cell phone or talking to his friends while driving.

This happened because the driving habit has been transferred to his subconscious mind and so the conscious mind become free

So after Reading many books  such as “the chimp paradox” and books by Dr Joe Dispenza, Bruce Lipton, Gregg Braden, Eckhart tolle,   and taking courses in Nlp, Hypnosis, Eft, Mindfulness, all in order for me to understand the mind  and gain tools to help rewire my brain.  I have been practicing for the last few years methods to help me become aware of my unconscious habits.

This is by no means an easy job but it is a worthwhile one and a never ending one.

Top Tips I have learned so Far.

  1. Meditate – Just take time out of doing and just be, Start by noticing you breathing and noticing you thoughts.
  2. Awareness is Key, be aware of your thoughts – there will be specific ones that play on a loop most of the time.
  3. Emotions – Feel the new emotion that you want to feel.  Stand up tall, adopt the new positive confident joyful posture
  4. Intentions – Set clear intentions of the  new habits or new personality that you wish to creaste
  5. Visualise this already happening.  I noticed that visualisation was so powerful when I watched my negative anxious thoughts arising.  I would visualise myself being out of control and running for the hills.  This is not how I wanted to feel so I said to myself STOP and started visualising the new emotion.  Personally I watched a lot of Will SMith and Mohammed Ali and would ask myself – How would they behave right now..

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.

These are just some of my tips on how I am practicing daily to rewire my brain and I hope they may help you too.
