Self actualisation
Self actualisation may seem like a pie in the sky concept, when pulled apart, I think it simply is the process of coming back to ourselves, manifesting in our outer world as success. Whatever success means to ourselves.  A peeling away, shifting, healing, letting go and forgiving of the various layers, painful experiences and misunderstandings etc.  This episode also explores the crossover between previously discussed Psycho-social developmental theorists of Attachment Theory, Erikson, and Jung.   As usual, if  you like what you hear, share, comment and give your 10 cents worth too.  Alternatively you might want to join me and others to discuss our ideas and views.  Do so here l

Our physical body - the choices we make, and our beliefs
Our physical body is directly influenced by the food, drink, medication, exercise, all the choices we make.  Down stream or the ripple effect of these choices, often dictated by our choices are: gut microbe imbalances,  poor digestion inflammation  activation of the nerves, immune system, altering our hormones  nutrient deficiencies,  physical stressors self-fulfilling prophesies around age, gender, family history etc. Increasing our awareness of why do choose what we do, our resistance to look after our body, make changes appropriate to support health, we learn so much about our past.  With this information, we are in a position to make informed, empowered decisions that work for us, our character, our values etc.   Enjoy the exploration of what our beliefs can do as a secondary effect. You might be quite surprised.

Erikson's Psychosocial Developmental Stages - conquering our strengths
Download this episode's notes  Psycho-social development outlines the stages and virtures the child growths through out their life.  It is not age specific, in birth - 2 years for instance, but considered the family's,cultural and societie's norms as well.   As we know, growth is more of a spiral or cyclic, and moving though the stages is the same, it takes time, experiences, encouragement and reinforcment etc to support the child to learn key character traits.  If the child struggles to do so, then, that part of the development may be stunted or even underdeveloped.   Emotional, relationship and identity development is key to creating a fullfilling and balanced, life, but then again, by whose definition?   We may have grown up in unsupportive environments, yet, now, we are responsible to create what we choose to live our life by.

Gratitude and Appreciation goes way beyond feeling good.
How do you feel when you receive an unexpected gift, help or compliment that means the world to you.  At a guess, it could be that deep sense of gratitude that is heart felt, that immerses your body with sense of amaze, wow combined with thanks.  This emotion has the power to do much more than just feeling good.  It changes our body chemistry, the way we see and interpret life.  Under the Law of Focus, what we focus on increases, so the more we feel into the sensation, recall times of gratitude and share it with others, it gets bigger.  Besides, who doesn't like an appreciative person with a great outlook on life? This episode we discuss the benefits in ourselves, relationships, and in the workplace.   Sit back and allow all those gratitude moments come flooding back.

Perception Influencers
Where or how do children learn the subtle messages of what is appropriate or not? By listening, observing and being 'guided' as to what is expected of them in different situations  Family, social interactions, school, culture, rituals, celebrations, sports, economics, peers, class structures etc. are some of the settings. What is expected of us becomes part of our beliefs systems and the rules that guide all things we do in life.

The subconscious mind - the folder maker and story teller
The subconscious is a powerful part of our psyche. It can be linkend to the hard drive of the computer where the files are stored.  Significant aspects of each experience we have are stored in our subconscious, available for recall if and when we need it.  Some are stored in closed folders to protect us. It is possible to use this information to create purposeful changes in our life.  by exploring, changing and re-writing our files, we potentially change our future for they do not have the same hold or negative impact on us.    Download this sessions information sheet  For more information or purchase a resource Steps to Change has, do so here:

Quick introduction into Spirit and Energy Vibration
To help make sense of this Episode, I have included a document with images to help bring it together.  You can access it here This is a really quick introduction to the idea of spirit as we will be regularly including spirit in many of the episodes.   In essence, Spirit is the part that is in and through all things.  The energy and vibration that is in between the neutrons, protons even.   It is the alpha and omega and we embody the spirit at the point of conception. It is the purity of everything!. We feel Spirit when we see newborn babies, baby animals, flowers and unaffected nature.  Through meditation, prayer, accurate mindfulness and being very present on love.    The other aspect of energy is created as the mineral elements come together to form matter. Everything has its own signature vibration created by the various elements coming together in the recipe for the specific thing.  In living matter, its parts such as the various fluids, communication compounds, tissues etc are the result of the recipe codes given by genes in the DNA to collect and around the various nutrients and cofactors. But the originating form is still specific mineral elements coming together in a pre-ordained way, held together by their attraction/repulsion based on the electrical charge.  This explains who all things have a vibration, an energetic feel about them.  We can feel it when we walk into a room or speak with others.  It can change by interacting with our environment.  Being with others, in nature the foods we ingest.  Activating our sensory nerves that in turn change our body chemistry.  Colours, sounds, music, and breathe work helps to change our vibrational/energetic/emotional states.  Exercise, relaxation and body movement also release kinetic energy for our cells to use.  Comprehending Spirit, and energy we open up the concepts of how we can alter the world we 'see', in line with the Book's concept of What the Mind Sees, the Body Feels Creates & Attracts.  Energy changes our body in so many different ways, and when we use this knowledge in targeted ways we change our mind's interpretation, processes and responses to the world we are interacting with.   Be sure to download the image document to help make sense of these concepts shared today  In the next episode, we explore the concept of the body, and aspects of the thinking mind.

Introduction to the adventures of how the mind, body and soul work
As with all new things, an introduction is needed.  This Series is based on the books I have authored - What the Mind Sees, the Body Feels, Creates and Attracts and its companion Awareness and Accountability Journal.  Both were born from my own healing Quest Journey as Jung would have called it. For me, Our (human) Life Goal Is to come back to ourselves - Pure Love.  As we heal the parts of us that still feel the hurt, rejection, abandonment, not being good enough etc, we come closer back to that pure love state.  I liken this to self-actualisation from the psychological theory but also demonstrate the cross over to other spiritual philosophies of attainment and ascension. Each episode will explore a topic in the book, generally following the chapter sequences in the book.  In each episode, you are introduced to a way your body is affected, impacted, dictated, or influenced by that week's focus. We will look at Body: How the body systems talk and balance each other, interacts with our environment to provide sensory information and feedback for the mind. How the Brain - Mind receives, processes, thinks and then instructs the body to respond/interact to the stimulus at the moment. How the Subconscious - Mind interprets, perceives and then stores the incoming data into folders, similar to files in a filing cabinet or computer.  Each new experience with similar data patterns or emotions are stored together and over time creates our auto-pilot reactions. How our choices, interactions etc trigger beliefs, memories and therefore choices. Subconscious Beliefs: Their formation through the lens of Psychol-Social-Emotional development, and world view creation. How thee form our beliefs and in particular the rules of how we are to live and interact with life. Are the dictators of our experiences, our health and our wellbeing.  How we live our life, habits and preferences. the energetics of our beliefs, and how they influence our DNA through emotions and expected programming. Spirit We are connected to everything and anything. Other people, living things, it is what connects us to the Divine, God, The Universe etc.  When we tap into this, we raise our feeling and vibe to change our entire mind, body and belief systems. Furthermore, we will explore various self-help healing techniques to support you, heal the patterns and release the entangled emotions trapped in the limiting beliefs in your psyche.
