“We but mirror the world. All the tendencies present in the outer world are to be found in the world of our body. If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change.” ~Mahatma Gandhi~
Another way of expressing this is “All perception is projection.”
Through talking with a number of my students and clients over the last years, I have realised there is a clear difference between those who achieve the goals they create and those who wildly exceede all expectations and experience Life now as manifesting magically all around them. It consists of two main points. This forms the basis of the session.
It often strikes me as curious, when I’m talking to other certified NLP Practitioners, that they are not consistently applying their knowledge and skills upon themselves. I listen to them speaking and often hear limiting decisions and beliefs about themselves being expressed, but they don’t pay any attention to it or correct what they are saying. Any of my students or clients know that this feedback process is something I will always reflect back until they are doing it for themselves!
We are incredible neural computers, processing around 11 million bits per second of information, but the brain only processes about 126 bits per second, and the rest is dealt with entirely by the Unconscious Mind. We get to consciously access 7 +/- 2 chunks of those 126 bits at any given time. The choice of which 126 bits we process is defined by the values and beliefs we hold about the World around us. We can change these values and beliefs and our projection, and thereby our perception will change, just as Gandhi said.
There is a growing body of evidence suggesting that being more present in your life strengthens immunity responses and physiological responses to stress and negative emotions. It leads to increased well being and happiness, and being more connected with your interactions with yourself, others and the external environment.
Are you ready to take up the challenge, apply all your skills upon yourself in a new way, and learn to experience and observe your own continuity of consciousness, as it is unfolding, moment to moment? Would you like to learn how to trust your Unconscious Mind completely, and to engage with it with an open and humble attitude, while you’re giving it instructions for what you wish to achieve? Could you find a use for being able to turn off your internal dialogue, so you encounter each person and event without habitually thinking about them? Would you like to like to develop your abilities with critical thinking and become freer of your own programming? What if all this was easy to do, and fun to learn?
During this session you will experience trance and different sorts of meditative states. I will be encouraging you repeatedly to become more aware of the present moment. You will learn how to encounter, listen to and talk with each other in a mindful way, without thinking. We will consider the bigger possibilities of transpersonal interconnectedness, and the implications of the decisions you are making in the present moment, in terms of their future effect on you, the society in which you live, and the future of the Planet as a whole.
I will also present to you the implications of becoming a ‘secret agent of change’, going about and creating positive changes all around you, just because you can.
This session is about creating the future, not just your future, so bring your big picture mindset and a sense of humour for this enjoyable, edutaining and quite possibly life-changing experience.
