How to Biohack your Emotional Responses

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.

If this stuff FIRES YOU UP and you only want to master more of these Superhuman Secrets to your Success, I am holding a Free Masterclass on the 26th February and I would LOVE you to be there.  It’s simple to sign up… Just click here and I will mail you details to join me.

What is standing in the way of your Soul Goal realising?

That thing that you are chasing is not outside of you, it’s within you.

Your personal experience of hardship and adversity is necessary to peel back the onion layers of you to get to your Soul Goal and understand it. When you land upon it, it’s like fireworks are going off in your heart and the feeling of it is indescribable, but when you are out of alignment with it, life sucks.

Do you have that assured feeling of knowing this is who I am and this is the reason I was born onto this planet?

We spend so much time fighting who we are and my recommendation to you is to look back… Who were you before you had all those experiences that scarred you?

What were those qualities that perhaps people put you down for, judged you for, laughed at you for? Those qualities are yours and in the words of Katrina Ruth… You can’t fuck up being you!  Those qualities are your strengths.  Your unique power to shine relies on you owning those things.

I’m sharing these things because I have felt out of alignment these last few days and the change in my vibration and feelings of hope has been staggering.  I’ve had to stop and ask the question, am I still moving towards where I want to be?  Or have I been dragged off course by old fears; my fears and old programming that continue to replay.  How is the work I am doing progressing the Hummingbird Movement, this Movement I want to create where I am enabling more and more good in the world.  Have I got off track?

Everything in u_UNLEASHED, my signature programme certainly has been born out of what I have been through and everything I have learnt that has saved my life.  Helping others to be empowered and enabled and helping them to overcome and become the person who CAN.  But are my choices and decisions around this programme still focused on where I want to go?  Am I focused on coaching the Hummingbirds who will empower much needed change in our world or have I been chasing a sale from those I can help, but they aren’t aligned to this broader vision?

We should always be interrogating our path.  Sometimes the answers might scare us.  Are we moving away from or towards?  Is what you are doing living out the purpose in your pain and sharing the message in your messes?  Are you empowering those who reflect where you were disempowered?  This is the essence of Mission-Driven business, to me; enabling where you were unable through your powerful learning, and fixing the things that caused you to break.  Helping others who have felt your pain.  I realise this isn’t everyone’s definition of a Mission, but that’s OK because this language will only speak to you, if you are the one who it is my purpose to help.  To help you see that what you want to create is possible, to help you let go of the stories that tell you that you can’t, to help you heal your trauma, to help you see your vision and unleash your masterpiece.

Share with me and tell me… What is standing in the way of your Soul Goal realising?

Are you tired of your weight rollercoaster?

I am a fighter.  For 9 years I have worked hard to stay within a weight band that is optimum for my fighting.  That number on the scale has meant everything.  Partially, in my mindset, an indicator of my “success”.  However, I want to share with you an experience that proved for me that whatever I thought it was an indicator of, it isn’t an indicator of what is on the inside of me or my state of health, however “slim” I thought I looked.

My weight nowadays generally sits at about 52 kilos. Pre-pregnancy and babies I used to sit at around 50 kilos.  Do you know why?  Because I used to relate my positive body image to no more than 8 stones on the scales.  Nothing to do with my health or feelings of energy and vitality.  It was just a number I related to my body image at a particular time in my life where I felt good.  Every time I have dropped under 52 kilos for a fight camp since having my babies, I have piled the weight back on almost immediately after fight camp has finished.  Because my body has been deprived of what it needs and the consequence of this has been cravings and binge eating, and after 6-8 weeks eating clean and restricting my calories, eating badly and over-eating makes me feel like shit, and so the cycle starts again.

Have you found yourself on a similar rollercoaster?

A few months ago I got the opportunity to fight for a title at 48.9 kilos.  I wasn’t worried because I have dropped to this weight before.  I knew I could do it and about a kilo of it would be just water weight anyway.  The difference this time was that for the last 12 months I have been on an incredible journey.  A personalised journey to find out what my body needs in terms of macro and micro nutrients.  I have been feeling awesome, better than ever before actually.  My energy has been off the charts.  Some of the health issues I have suffered for years just went away and I saw muscle on my body I have literally never seen before, in spite of training at high intensity 6 days a week for as long as I could remember!  It was like this layer of ‘puppy fat’ that I had always had and always felt subconscious about had just magically melted away. I looked lean and I looked strong.

Right before I began my weight cut this time I got on my Smart Scales and looked at my body composition.  I looked at my muscle mass, my visceral fat and my body fat. Everything was in good, healthy ranges for me.  I looked at my resting metabolism, i.e what my body needs to survive in calories, so I could add on my calories burned through exercise and movement through the day.  I felt in control.  I felt good and I looked good!  I had a diet I could follow and feel confident was providing my body with what it needs!  And I no longer had all those annoying cravings that drove me  to make stupid decisions.  In fact, I was eating more than ever and adding on no weight at all. My metabolism was on fire.

Faced with the challenge to lose weight fast though, I made a terrible decision.  I made the decision to go away from everything I had learned in my journey to personalise my diet to my body’s actual needs to what I knew would move weight, fast.  Cutting carbohydrates.  I want to share with you the results of this and share with you the lessons I learned, the hard way.

In a couple of months I lost 2 kilos.

This was my aim – 250 grams a week – comfortable, safe weight loss.  However, a couple of weeks in, my training got really hard.  I felt my muscles screaming at me during training sessions and I felt fatigued after them.  I felt fatigued in general!  And my tummy was completely messed up.  Without being completely ‘TMI’, it felt like I had the runs every day, and it was horrible.  And I looked terrible.  A friend actually reached out to me by messenger and asked me if everything was OK!  I felt rubbish.

4 weeks before my fight I decided to pull the pin.  Well, to be more accurate a doctor signed me off and told me I would be stupid to try and cut any more weight and over-exert myself when my body clearly wasn’t holding onto and benefiting from what I was putting in it already.  At this point I had also found blood in my stools and I was chronically fatigued.

So what was going on?

I got back on my smart scales and found I had lost a whopping 600g in muscle mass. My resting metabolism had dropped by a couple of hundred calories. My body fat percentage hadn’t moved at all. From this information alone I could see that all I’d done with dumping carbohydrates and creating a calorie deficit was tell my body it had to go into survival mode and preserve fat and sacrifice muscle. A number of the other side effects would have followed on from here. Others perhaps not, but this was enough information for me to commit to sharing the new way I had found, the better way, to lose weight and keep that weight off sustainably.

For 8 months previous to my awful decision I had been following a diet personalised to my genetic makeup.

75% of generic diets FAIL. That means that 75% of people on a diet that has not been personalised to their actual needs will FAIL. You might see an initial weight drop like me, then it will plateau. You’ll give up, or reach the end of your target time on the diet and all the weight will go back on. You will have lost muscle and affected your metabolism in a bad way, and this yo yo dieting will put pressure on your blood sugar balance, mess with your hormones, mess with your self-esteem and energy levels and who knows what other damage on the inside of you.

To refresh my health after I dropped my title fight, I took up a mostly plant-based diet, went back to my recommended macros and saw my energy quickly FLY. I realised I could satisfy my body’s needs for high carbohydrates with a mix of plant-based foods over traditional breads, wraps and rolls AND eat in a way my body found easy to digest. I cannot tell you how good this has felt.

There are 2 tools you need to personalise your weight loss journey like this and I would love to be able to share them with you. They are what have me now at a place where my energy is high, my mood is good, my blood pressure is normal and my weight is back at a healthy number. Not that I believe this number means much at all now! It’s what’s on the inside, how we feel and how we are eating, moving and living in favour of our long term health.

“Pain pushes you until vision pulls”…

What if I told you I could change your life by changing your focus?


According to quantum physics, what we focus on manifests as our reality, so by constantly focusing on the problem, we fuel more of the problems in our lives. And fuel negative emotions like frustration, failure, envy and a complete lack of belief in ourselves.

When you have clarity of intention, the universe conspires with you to make it happen

~ Fabienne Frederickson

Are you ready?

  • To achieve your IMPOSSIBLE?
  • To redefine your LIMITS?
  • To remove the counter intentions blocking your SUCCESS?
  • To rewire your brain for MENTAL WELLNESS & HAPPINESS?

“Mind over matter” is a real thing.  I’ve experienced it and I can help you to experience it as well, so that your positive, resilient mindset becomes your secret weapon for success.

Everything we are is energy. We are vibrational beings interacting in a vibrational universe. Everything we feel is energy. Anxiety, insecurity, fear, sadness are negative energies that are magnetic, and our shackles to them are a major block to our happiness.

I used to live a life overwhelmed by anxiety.

Looking back now to the way I felt day in day out, I’m not sure how I survived it. From the minute I opened my eyes in the morning I felt this nonsensical feeling of urgency and fear.  I wasn’t ready to feel the emotions I had locked away. I hadn’t agreed to that intention. It wasn’t on my terms.

But when I set that intention to change my life my energy changed in an instant.

I felt like the sun was rising on a new dawn.  Across 12 months I changed everything about my life… through Mindset Mastery.  I came back around to the me I always was, I’d just lost her in “life”. By rediscovering “me”, rising my vibration and redefining my beliefs, everything in my life transformed.

Everything starts within.

We all hold onto everything that has gone before without consciously knowing it, which creates silent counter intentions to what we say we want.  And so we fail to manifest it.  Our counter intentions are rooted in fear, doubt, even fear of the fear and limiting beliefs.

‘Flow’ is the opposite of this state.

‘Flow’ is where we have inner harmony with whatever we are doing, even if we are not doing/achieving/experiencing everything that we want to be.

If you are ready to to invest in you and come full circle and in doing so become unstoppable; elated because you’re finally free from your excuses and fear, sure of your path forward, I am ready to have a conversation with you. Intention is all you need right now and the rest will come. Just click this link and complete the form 💓>>https://wp.me/P9ixom-3
