The True Secret that can change your life

Happy Holidays to all of you!

For all of us this is usually an intense time of year. I am always fascinated by the effects of this intensity on me and those around me. I am especially interested in what happens to our brain-mind with all the rush and busyness.

The busier our life, the busier and more chaotic becomes our mind. If we do not take moments out to daily quiet our mind, the intensity builds and our mind speeds up and goes even faster and becomes even more intense. Because of this busyness you may notice that you feel more anxious, have trouble focusing, and have difficulty sleeping which may lead to one more glass of wine to calm you down. You may also notice that you become more negative and reactive about situations and people as the mental default system in the brain takes over your mind. (The mental default system is a network of brain regions that is active when the individual is not focused on the outside world. It is like a wandering mind.)

Our brain-mind is amazing. The default network can be activated and we can have the most traumatic and negative events happening in our life and at the same time we can have the wisest and most appreciative experiences when we are centered and calm. How do these two opposites function in us? What researchers tell is that the human brain-mind records these two events in the same area of the brain. But whether you access the positive or negative state depends which quality of mind you choose. This is the true secret that can change our life. The only thing that can change the brain and rewire it is what we choose. Obviously, we want to choose the positive thoughts. That choice for the positive takes a clear mind. It is the choice not to have the wandering default mind that leads us down a negative path. A clear mind is one that is aware when we have many negative thoughts. One practical way to cut through the negative default system is to focus on gratitude and appreciation. Interrupt the negative pattern by saying, “I am thankful for . . . my health, my friends, the blue sky, etc.” – focus gratitude on whatever is happening right now where you are. The positive choice of gratitude will bring us into a state of peace and tranquility.

At this time of year, as there are blessings of merriment, joy and peace for our family, friends, and the world, remember to choose your self.  Take a moment to quiet your self, bring in the beauty of nature and spend time by yourself having a cup a tea and just appreciating all that you are. This self-reflection will bring tranquility to your mind.

So, have a very peace filled and tranquil holiday with yourself and all your loved ones.

In 2012 I will be giving a workshop on the West Coast in the San Francisco Bay Area February 24, 25, and 26.

On the East Coast I will be giving another workshop at the Kripalu Center in Stockbridge MA on March 25,26,27,28th. See my website for more information on this four day workshop.

San Francisco Bay Area Workshop Description:
As life gets more frantic, demanding and chaotic it impacts us at a deeper level than we realize.  Our challenge is to stop and center our self in order to find an inner mental program that will keep us content and healthy. It is this stopping and looking within that is the intent of this workshop.
In the workshop we will focus on a deep indulging of our self to be more inner and learn to navigate and recharge our life.  We will do this through inner practices that will train the mind and rewire the brain.

Specifically in this workshop you will learn how to:
·      Use the brain frequencies to awaken our consciousness by identifying the voice in our head and what it is really saying to you.
·      Learn skills to increase your energy by managing your mind and opening your heart.
·      Identify the four basic things you cannot change but want to change and how that can reduce stress.
·      Find and remove the fundamental obstacle that has determined the course of your life so that you can discover your true purpose in life.

Heal Your Mind, Rewire Your Brain: Harnessing the Power of Neuroplasticity

It will be a highly experiential four-day workshop where you will be empowered to learn to manage stress and break the mental patterns that keep you trapped in habitual and unproductive attitudes, thoughts, and behaviors.

New research shows that the brain is amazingly adaptable, constantly rewiring itself in response to events. By learning to consciously access each of the four brainwave frequencies, you can free yourself from the self-destructive patterns that keep you from leading a successful and creative life.

In this workshop, Patt Lind-Kyle will guide you through exercises that will enable you to work in a constant state of flow.

You will learn:

  • How the brain becomes stuck in negative feedback loops and how it can change and evolve
  • To identify sources of stress and unhappiness
  • Meditation and mindfulness techniques that rewire the brain by focusing on and strengthening each of the four brainwaves.

You will return home with the tools you need to literally reprogram your neural networks for a life that is more peaceful, innovative, and positive.

Recommended reading: Patt Lind-Kyle, Heal Your Mind, Rewire Your Brain (Energy Psychology Press) and practice with the companion CDs.

Video: Finding Home Base (from the 2010 ISNR Conference)

In this video from her presentation at the 2010 International Society for Neurofeedback and Research Conference, Patt tells the story of how she got started with meditation and how she became inspired to share her experience of “finding home base” with her family, friends, clients and readers.

After Patt’s first 6-month meditation retreat, she asked herself “If I can experience this incredible, incredible state of happiness, and it can ride through me all the time – I don’t need to find it out there, it’s here, there’s no doubt it comes from here – how can I teach this to other people?”

She also talks about The Brain Mirror as an important feedback tool that she used to observe her own neuronal patterns during states of happiness and anxiety.
