We tend to live our lives in our heads. Thinking, planning, scheming and dreaming. As an aside, if you have been following me for any length of time you will know that my take on “thinking" is:
-you rarely do it
-you repeat yourself
-your thoughts are rarely creative
And, if you have been following me for awhile you will know that these statements are a reflection of how your robotic subconscious mind operates and not a reflection of your amazing potentialJ
Now back to getting to know your body.
Since we spend so much time in our heads we often lose touch with what is going on in our body. We may notice signs of hunger or fatigue and a splitting headache can certainly get our attention, but the truth is that our bodies send us other, more subtle signals all of the time. Our bodies become programmed much like our minds do.
Let me explain with a simple example:
During the neuro linguistic assessment interview phase of the acceleration process, subtle themes become apparent between verbal language “choices” and the physical body. As the word “anxiety” spills out there will be an often imperceptible flicker of one eye. Or as the word “depression” is uttered there will be the tiniest jerk in one of the feet.
These internally generated messages go unnoticed by most people. However, these are extremely interesting patterns. Once we begin to notice these subtle clues we can begin to manipulate them.
For now, just become curious, start to pay attention to all those little involuntary jerks and flickers.
Another side note- if you are not familiar with the concept of NLP (neuro linguistic programming) this short article does in fact, demonstrate a NLP focus. NLP moves us beyond "passive hypnosis" and brings changes into cellular memory:
Neuro-processing via the brain and through our senses
Linguistics-via un/conscious verbal language and body language
Programming-installing the beliefs systems, thoughts, feelings and behaviors required by the updated identity.
