How to spring clean your mind and start fresh lifestyle habits;
As it is spring, let spring clean 1st our minds' collections of old patterns. FACT; We are the only beings on earth who can literally change our biology by what we think and feel. Let that sink in for a while... Ralph Waldo Emerson quotes- The sower may mistake and sow his peas crookedly; the peas make no mistake, but come up and show his line. NLP is a practice that connects the links in your brain. These neurological processes between language and behaviours. (NLP) are the masters of attracting what you do or don't want into your life. If you have been around in the mindful milky way long enough you will have heard of Law of Attraction, or The Secret. How does it work? You hear, see and do everything you think, say and act upon. Yet your brain can mis interpret what you do or do not want because of the way it receives your habits and patterns. "It doesn't hear the words dont or wont... it does not register do and don't" ! Use all your metaphysicals now and Listen, Repeat, Speak, Do, Action carefully So statements/thoughts like: I don't want to gain weight- your brain hears, gain weight. Even your children receive in this way. Child don't get up on the bench- the child hears get up on the bench. How can I reprogram myself? One easy Jedi Trick I often suggest to my clients is to simply flip a statement, as you would see the opposite in a mirror...or completely reframe the statement of intention. I don't want to gain weight- I am choosing to practice healthy living...The Kicker is - you can literally change your biology and therefore a great amount of your physical design of your current body in this way. How cool is that! Naturally your thoughts/words require your actions and lifestyle choices to match your statements. Next example- Child, don't get up on the bench- would be child, come sit down here ..both offer a solution rather than simply don't.
Don't is perceived in the mind as a stone wall..that prevents the child's mind, and your own mind from seeking solutions to go elsewhere. How will I know when spring cleaning and yielding better living will flourish? When you get to a place, where you're seeing the positive in others more than the negative; When your statements are clear intentions, it means you're doing the same for yourself. At this time you will notice the changes in what you are attracting. Remember it's a practice, not a one off event.
Enjoy the spring cleanining those minds :)
