This morning I woke up feeling stressed and overwhelmed.
Then somebody I have coached in the past gave me a wake-up call!
He said, “Don’t bend to your circumstances. Change them.”
Control is our Superpower. I used to use control in the wrong way. Trying to control my circumstances and rigidly control how I went about things (strategies and lists for days.) This was part of my SURVIVAL MODE, not freedom from it, because I was so trapped by everything I feared. Now I use control the right way. I control how I show up, the decisions I make and the way I choose to decode my emotional responses programmed by emotional memories.
I now help others to increase their brain’s feelings of happiness through Biohacking these emotional memories, so that you feel good, begin to heal from past trauma and create a daily rhythm that makes you a superhuman charged magnet for a abundance.
I created a Free Resource within my Mynddojo to help you, but HOW do the simple tools in there do that?
Here is an example.
Yesterday I did an Emotional Trauma Healing Session with a Client where I helped her to consciously recognize the emotions at play, born out of her trauma, which are causing her so much pain and suffering in the present. These feelings have caused her to suffer debilitating anxiety attacks for years. However, bringing consciousness to an autonomic system like the nervous system lessens their impact.
This is the essence of Biohacking. Bringing control to the things that we feel we have no control over. Using science to live better and have more success. Control is your Superpower…
In this case we are specifically biohacking emotional trauma and this is essential because we cannot suppress negative emotional experiences, like we try to do when we go through something horrific. The limbic part of our brain becomes hyper-aroused to our emotional memories, which has unwanted effects like anxiety and depression and guides our motivation and behaviour. It should be the other way around. Our habits should be guiding our motivation and behaviour. Our results do literally reflect our mindset.
The key to overcoming trauma is to calm the amygdala, part of the old limbic system of our brain, where our emotions are given meaning, remembered and attached to associations and responses to them, by activating the prefrontal cortex. Most of our memories leave no trace in the brain, but trauma physically rewires it. (And don’t stereotype Trauma here. Experiences may seem subtle that have significant effects on the nervous system. And from every experience, we take meaning.)
The prefrontal cortex combines two frontal lobes that are newer and larger areas at the front of the brain. They’re part of the cerebral cortex, which is a rational and more advanced brain system. This is where thinking, reasoning, decision-making and planning happen.
The frontal lobes allow you to process and think about your emotions. You can then manage these emotions and determine a logical response. The frontal lobe response is not automatic. It can be consciously controlled by you.
So, how do we do this?
– Setting Intention and Goals
– Practising gratitude
– Changing our focus
– Experiencing more joy
– Giving the brain new information or challenging it with questions that create new information, rather than replaying the stories that keep your trauma “on the tracks”
– Connecting and neutralising the emotions that are keeping you stuck
Thanks to Neuroplasticity (the brain’s ability to adapt and change with new experiences) we are literally rewiring our brain, physically with these new habits that activate a new emotional response that calms our amygdala and enables you to experience the vulnerability of everything you fear.
