Neurosculpting® at its heart is about developing a relationship with your neurobiology. Believe it or not it’s about falling in love with your brain. And in doing that, falling in love and creating a relationship between your brain that’s conscious and intentional, you can begin to utilize the power that is in the AMAZING brain you have.
To help you make better choices in life, to fit your goals and visions, to help you achieve things you thought were beyond achieving, and to help you let go of things that are limiting you: that’s the amazing kind of relationship you can develop when you fall in love with your brain.
So how do you fall in love with your brain? Well let’s be honest, the first thing you have to do is take a leap of faith.
“All of the successful people I’ve known have been willing to take a chance; they’ve done things even though they were completely afraid. Sometimes in fact I think they were terrified, but they knew that if they didn’t act they would get passed by. They trusted their intuitions and they went for it.” ~ Jack Canfield book Success Principles.
I’d like to add not only do I think successful people trust their intuitions, I think they’ve done some other things: I think they’ve fallen in love with their brain, I think they’ve developed their intuition, and I think they’ve also come to an understanding of what they are creating in their own life.
Here are the first 3 steps you have to take to fall in love with your brain:
1) You have to take a leap of faith.
Guillaume Apollinaire an avant garde french poet said, “Come to the edge,” he said. “We can’t, we’re afraid!” they responded. “Come to the edge,” he said. “We can’t, We will fall!” they responded. “Come to the edge,” he said. And so they came. And he pushed them. And they flew.
While I don’t advocate ACTUALLY pushing someone off of a cliff, I certainly advocate being there as a support, as a challenger in a positive way, and as a coach. That metaphorical push that a coach and challenger can give to you is, “Come on, you’ve got this, I know it’s scary but just go for it.” Taking that leap is the first step in opening these doorways to yourself around falling in love with your brain and changing your life.
2) Get educated. Get smart on how your brain works.
Historically I went through life not really even thinking about my brain, which is funny because you have to think with your brain to think about your brain, and I just didn’t do it. Here’s this machine that’s driving what I’m doing, that’s processing for me, predicting for me workin’ its hiney off for me and I haven’t even given it a thought. So I got really educated. I got educated through the Neurosculpting® programs on the neurobiology of limbic brain and the pre-frontal cortex. I got into how maps are made showing how neurons work; really in depth studies.
Then I went into learning neurobiology in online formats off google scholar, and now I’m involving myself in free course work at Colorado Free University. But these are details. What I’m saying is, I kept my education going and I still am passionate about my education.
Some of my education also came from observing myself once I had this neurobiology knowledge given to me. I started noticing how my brain worked. I also found out how I needed to nutritionally support my brain and I started implementing those changes. They are pretty subtle but I’ve noticed my brain is healthier and working faster now that I’m smarter about how to keep it fueled throughout the day.
3) Create a dynamic relationship between yourself and everything that’s going on in your brain, to really develop and use your brain’s strongest skills.
In managing teams we always talk about playing up your team’s or employee’s assets; work with what they are good at to get the best results. It’s the same with your brain: work with what it’s good at. It is good at creating maps that help you predict the world, it is good at creating maps that function, flow, and react in the world. It is the thing that will get you to where you want to go. So using Neurosculpting and the five-step process of Neurosculpting offers a way to create an intentional dynamic between you and your brain.
If you are thinking of starting a journey of self improvement and change, it’s terrifying – I know it’s terrifying. I have been there myself and work with people daily who are in process. You are not alone.
Changing neurobiologically is something we react to quite negatively. We don’t want to make the change, we want to protect ourselves. Even if our world is not working for us and it’s just pure ass toxic we are still going to try to protect ourselves from changing it.
But just taking that leap that Jack Canfield talked about or that our poet said would lead you to fly, that’s how you get there, that’s how you start to make the leap. And the first step is to fall in love with your brain.
Take a leap of faith to invest in yourself and make some changes.
