CHRIS’ 5 KEYS TO INCREASE YOUR LEARNING

If a genie were to grant you 3 wishes, what would be the first most obvious thing to wish for? MORE WISHES!!!

Whether you’re a professional athlete, entrepreneur or student, your growth will be determined by your ability to learn. The quickest learners will be the biggest earners. Especially in todays age of entrepreneurship. That is if you’re learning the right stuff of course.

Lets face it, learning is life. Learning is money. Learning is growth. Learning is time. Learning is reduced stress & better health. Just ask any person who suffers from anxiety & panic attacks or depression or worse PTSD. Whats the problem? Not their childhood. Not even the anxiety. Not even the traumatic memories. Say what? The real problem is that they haven’t learned to deliberately control & operate their own brain. Thats it. Just to let you know, if you’re my client, I can guarantee you I’m going to find out the exact times and places where that anxiety is a major asset. But thats a topic for another day. Bottom line, learning gives you the power for unlimited achievement & to create positive changes in every area of your life. You need to become a highly skilled learner. Its my secret. I learn very fast and become good at things real quick, so I have time to master my mind, body & business simultaneously. You want to be really skilled & dynamic to stand out from the pack. That requires super-learning with a whole bunch of wanton desire and determination to apply your learnings.

Before embarking on your personal enhancement journey, the first thing you want to learn is “learning how to learn”. Becoming a Super-Learner is essentially your ticket to unlimited wishes. A lot of “experts” talk about it, but really just give you regurgitated quotes and content. We’re going to give into the nitty-gritty, hardcore techniques, that is, how to actually do it!!!

Whether you’re in sales, run your own business, are a teacher or an athlete, your job is to give people an experience. No experience. No changes. This is critical. I’ll explain. Now a study at Harvard, asked professionals, “if you could have anything, what would you want?” . Unanimously, they answered, “an extra hour per day”. Time is money. You’ll save time and be more productive by learning faster and retaining more of what you learn. Simply just dissolving the bad memories, limiting beliefs, and worries from your mind alone, will save hours of time. In some cases, hundreds of hours per year!

A major problem is that learning is something we’re TOLD TO DO, we’re not taught HOW TO ACTUALLY DO IT. Our entire academic career, content was shoved down our throats without us ever being taught how to effectively assimilate, learn & remember it. The result? Most have amnesia for 95%+ of the content they didn’t really learn in school. Isn’t that such a waste of time?

I must point out that its incumbent on both the teacher and the learner to make the learning experience as entertaining, vivid, and memorable as possible. Look, some stuff is going to be boring. Some stuff you’re going to want to pull your hair out. But thats exactly when you need to toot your own brain & have fun with it. Use my 5 KEY INGREDIENTS FOR LEARNING to make learning easy and fun. That said, it sure would help if your teachers, bosses & trainers learned how to teach in a way that registers perfectly for your brain. Send them to this course here! Thank me later!

Here are Chris Wyllie’s 5 Key Ingredients to Learning:

  • STATE.
  • STRATEGY.
  • CONVICTION.
  • DISSOLVE LIMITS.
  • FUN.

The above are the 5 ingredients you need to optimize learning. Elements 4 and 5 (Dissolve Limits & Fun) are connected to “STATE” but deserve individual mention. That is all your limits – be it bad memories, negative thought patterns, limiting beliefs – are limited to particular states of consciousness. Thus, different STATE, different BELIEFS. If you listen closely to people’s language they will even say, “well once I step into “SUPER-ME” … then I think and believe that I can do things I can’t normally do”. I like it, lets make a habit out of that! Secondly, having fun & emotions are the fabric of memory. You’ve got so many RARA motivation speakers, and people using fear tactics and hyperbole, whats above all that is high level humour and edu-tainment. Thats right. Now that with practical experiential techniques to create a tangible BRAIN ENHANCEMENT EXPERIENCE and you have the ultimate combo. An experience sets the foundation & re-wires the brain to make subsequent learning a piece of cake. Experience a belief changing intervention and then learn how to build such experiences for others.

Now lets get to each ingredient. I’ll explain the mechanics, the implications and then how to apply them.

STATE

Learning is state dependent. You’ve probably heard this before. However you may not know the precise techniques to control your state at will. When you learn information, the information is neuro-associated to that specific brainwave state. So the first step to creating and accessing learnings is learning – HOW TO CONTROL YOUR BRAIN WAVES & STATE. The brain is a wonderful machine. It’ll learn, rehearse, and access for you infinite amounts of information. All you need to do is get into the right state to access the desired neuro-pathways and thus all the information connected to that state.

I know you’ve all had the following experience: You going into test, and during the test you go black or faced with questions you know that you know the answers but you just couldn’t access them. Only to then have the answers start popping up in your mind while you’re walking or on the bus home. Wasn’t that annoying? This happens because during the test you didn’t access the learning state you were in when you studied the information. Like most you were probably calmer while studying and more anxious and rushed during the test. Hence, different states, and without accessing the state, the information is harder to recall.

The state you go into determines the information you access. Just think, when you feel really bad, doesn’t a rush of other bad memories typically begin to flood into your mind? When you’re feeling really good however its much harder to recall those bad memories, isn’t it? Thats because information & memories are only connected to specific states of consciousness. Now if you really want to get yourself anxious or depressed you can think of one terrible memory & bad feeling, access that state and then begin to think of every other area of your life so that they get coloured with those feelings. Thats how you create “generalized anxiety” and “depression”. I like to do the opposite. I like to spray happiness, curiosity and determination all across your mind & attitude now.

Particular environments can trigger brainwave states which trigger particular strings of memories and moments. Just think, have you ever been out for dinner with your partner and on the radio played “your song”? While this song was playing didn’t a string of past memories emerge in your mind?

Your state is comprised of the pictures and mental movies you see in your mind (either past memories or of the future), voices & sounds (both yours and others) you hear and feelings, which you of course feel. Thus the primary way for you to control your state is by changing the mental images, sounds you make in your mind and thus feelings you make in your body. This is the land of Neurolinguistic Programming. LET ME GIVE YOU AN EXAMPLE of two key STATE INDUCTIONS – DESIRE & DETERMINATION. These are the two states you’ll want to elicit in your students.

DESIRE
I’d like you to stop for a moment, and think of a time when you saw something, and the moment you saw it, you knew it was perfect and you just had to have it. Thats right DESIRE. Desire that could be for anything as simple as a dress, a car, a partner, a home, a vacation, a mentor you wanted to be like, or a skill you wanted to learn. Anything that filled your body with that wondrous feeling of desire. Now close your eyes and in your mind, go to that very first moment when you first saw what you desired so strongly. See what you saw, hear what you heard. Now take the image of it and make it a little bigger, clearer and closer. Turn up the volume. Notice how that desire moves through your body and start to spin it a little faster, double it, triple it, 10X it … now is the perfect time.

Now inside the middle of that desired image, open up a little circle. Inside that little circle, see the target, see yourself with an unbridled exuberance learning math, science, neuroscience (pick a subject) with an overwhelming sense of desire. Then very quickly open up that little circle until that enthusiastic you completely covers the desire image – the same size, shape, dimensions etc. UUUUU the very same desire. Now really look at that image in your mind, thats something you need to remember and make it so that the closer you get to that image, the closer you get to mastering your craft the stronger that desire grows … suddenly learning and desire … desire and learning will be connected in a way they never have before. Suddenly the sight of that book is going to trigger that desire … the thought of learning trigger that desire … and the more you learn the more this desire will build and build and build and be absolutely irresistible … such that even the more you try to stop yourself the stronger this desire becomes … until you’re exploding like a rocket-ship to your dreams and beyond. Lucky you.

DETERMINATION
I know there has been a time when you put your mind to completing something and nothing was going to stop you. Isn’t that right? Easy, hard, no matter what you were going to do it right? It could be as simple as finishing a level on a video game, completing a sand castle at the beach, finishing a final set in a workout, finishing your favourite movie series, or favourite book, or playing another game, there have been times where you felt determined and resolved, and you were going to do it no matter what. THINK OF THAT TIME NOW.
Double the size of the image. Make it clearer bigger brighter more vivid. Turn up the volume. Really turn up the volume. And amplify that determined feeling X10. Then open your eyes and look at your math text book. Close your eyes feel the determination. Open your eyes look at the textbook. Close your eyes feel the determination. Then suddenly like a sling shot see an image of you being #1 at calculus in your class shooting right on top of that determined image, with those exact same resolved feelings …look at the image and go, “this will be mine”. Simultaneously say a special “word” to lock in this Calculus genius state and touch your writing wrist to lock in this determined genius. Now say the word, touch your wrist and activate this state. Now thats what I’m talking about.

This following part is optional
Open your eyes and say to the teacher … you said calculus “was” going to be hard … I’m so glad the difficulty is over … you also said that the average for last year was 75%. I’m so glad to inform you that this class is very different … in fact I’ve been considering the scholarships I’m planning on receiving from Harvard and Yale (pick your university) … and I need a minimum 4.0 GPA, however I’m going to settle for no less than a 96% in this class just to be safe. Ohh yea I’m Chris by the way … I guess you could call me Chris “96%” Wyllie …

Now that would be one way to start a calculus class. Too bad its not true … unless you learned how to be a ninja with neuro-linguistics – 7 days or less to become a Neuro-Ninja here.

Now what happens in calculus class? The first thing the calculus teacher does is go, “okay kids time to get serious, this unit of calculus is going to be very difficult were going to have to get through it”. Immediately the students brain’s go, “ahhh crap and then shut offs”.

Math teachers globally have been fabulous at anchoring BAD FEELINGS to numbers & equations. Many kids I work with, all I have to do is show them a math book and they immediately feel bad. Just the mentioning of school makes them feel bad. The school system has done a terrific job making it so that kids feel bad not only while at school, but any other time throughout the day when they think about school. You like me, went through it, you know what I’m talking about.

Calculus is actually one of the easiest most practical subjects taught. Its all about rates of change, which is precisely how velocity, acceleration, cars, gravity, profitability and the entire universe works!!! Calculus helps you figure out which sports car you want to drive and where to invest your money!

The school system does such a wonderful job building post-hypnotic anchors. If you want to make a perfectly grown adult cry just show them a polynomial equation! Instantly they’ll start feeling anxious, nervous and “less than”. You heard it from me.

YOU NEED TO BUILD NEW ANCHORS – especially to learning!

Learning is kind of like an adventure when you think about it. You just don’t know how far the learnings will take you, or where the journey of learning will lead and the opportunities that will arise on the path ahead … ohh the mystery … if you stop and think about something you learned and didn’t enjoy, maybe you didn’t realize at the time, but the fact that you didn’t enjoy it actually moved you forward because it told you what you do like … you see standing still and hesitating gets you no where …. parents are always asking me where should I send my child to university … should he take a year off or go right for it … take the step forward, because even if its the wrong one, that fact that you’ve experienced the wrong one will lead you to the right one … did you realize that everything you’ve ever learned, every fact, every experience is ammunition for you to make boatloads of money, achieve superstardom success, in essence do whatever you want. Even if thats just sitting at home learning in a state of bliss and overwhelming curiosity. Do you see my point?

WANTON ANTICIPATION
Think of a time you felt incredibly excited and just couldn’t wait to do something. Close your eyes, remember where you were, what you saw, what you heard, that feeling of wanton anticipation, then open your eyes … Look at the equation on the board … then close your eyes see what you saw in that memory … open them look at the equation on the board … close them make that memory bigger brighter clearer so that anticipation begins welling up through your entire body … open your eyes and look at the equation on the board … hmmm have you thought about the perfect equation for your most epic life? Hmmm what are necessary variables that must be part of it? Think about that. Hold that thought.

Here are some USEFUL LEARNING STATES to induce in yourself & your students:
Curiosity, Desire, Determination, Flexibility (Creativity).

Remember the memory blog, that you need congruence between learning state & testing state in order for the learnings to be consolidated and accessed.

If you can induce a consistent state in the following 3 environments you’ll be miles ahead:
SAME STATE LEARNING IN CLASSROOM = SAME STATE LEARNING HOME = SAME STATE TAKING TEST. I did this especially for the highly visual classes: biology, chemistry, neuro-anatomy. READ Strategies below.

The biggest memory and learning problem for you is not being able to consciously re-access the same state the content you want is connected to. Second, good brain chemistry equals good learning. Nutrition, supplementation and specific lifestyle adjustments can ensure that you make good brain chemistry to build better focus, mental clarity and memory.

Let me introduce to you 4 key neurotransmitters for learning.

GOOD BRAIN CHEMISTRY

1. DOPAMINE – Dopamine is the “feel-good” “pleasure neurotransmitter that increases energy, focus, motivation and is released to consolidate newly formed neuro-pathways. In essence, when learnings “click” in your mind, dopamine is released to strengthen the neuro-connections. Thus dopamine is key to both the initiation of motivation for learning & the consolidation of learning. Some supplements to increase Dopamine include L-tyrosine, Coffee with MCT Oil, Mucuna Puriens, Gingko & Ginseng. As well, “DHA” increases Dopamine. Consume a higher protein diet, with lots of vegetables and lower carbohydrates to increase dopamine levels. I recommend taking dopamine supplements on an empty stomach before eating food for maximal effect.

2. CHOLINE – Choline is a neurotransmitter that increases memory, information processing, thinking speed, and overall mental sharpness. Some supplements that raise choline include Citicholine, Alpha GPC & phosphatidylserine (PS). Likewise, take these supplements on an empty stomach before studying. Foods rich in choline include Egg Yolks, Salmon & Beef Liver.

3. GABA – GABA inhibits over-excitation of brain cells. GABA promotes relaxation and calm focus. I do not recommend taking GABA directly, but rather subtly raising GABA levels via magnesium supplementation. Add in active form of Vitamin B6 with the magnesium (MG) for increased GABA production. Both Mg & Vit. B6 are co factors that convert glutamate (excitatory) into GABA. Magnesium Threonate is my favourite magnesium for the brain and cerebral spinal fluid.

4. SEROTONIN – Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that modulates mood, creativity & overall well-being. Elevating serotonin can assist you in achieving altered states of consciousness & increased synaptic plasticity. Some natural nootropic serotonin boosting herbs include Bacopa, Goji & Schizandra. Exercise and weight lifting is a terrific serotonin booster. So is meditation.

Oxytocin deserves honourable mention for its ability to increase pattern recognition. Autistic kids were given oxytocin and suddenly able to perform fascial recognition. That is they were able to differentiate a sad face from an angry face etc.

Melatonin is another key neurotransmitter. Melatonin is released in the pineal gland, usually after a few hours of the absence of light. Melatonin release promotes deep sleep, during which the polarity of the brain reverses, which re-primes brain cells, strengthens activated neuro-pathways and prunes away unused ones. Without proper melatonin release, sleep and learning will be impaired. Avoid blue lights 3 hours before bed. As you learned in this blog, morning sunlight helps to re-set circadian rhythms, and proper timing of AM cortisol release and PM melatonin release. The presence of light in the morning and absence of light in the evening trumps any melatonin supplement every time. EXERCISE Exercise raises brain-derived nerve growth factor (BDNF), endorphins and replenishes the electrical charge of the brain. While in school, I never wasted any new brain cell growth and always did my most important studying before and after my workouts. In fact after work outs, the brain is neuro-chemically primed for terrific creative thinking & writing. I like to spend 20 minutes after a workout generating new ideas.

Not working out and pulling off 10 hours of straight studying is the worst thing you can do. Your brain becomes in-efficient, habituates and information is not as distinctly wired into memory. Did you know that the brain hemisphere’s change dominance every 90 minutes? Hence, the most effective way to study is in 90 minute intervals. Likewise, your brainwave dominance changes every 90 minutes. You want heightened Beta & Alpha brainwaves when processing information in “UP TIME”, and then allow the brain a period of time to go into “DOWN TIME”, that is into a more daydreamy “theta state” for the information to be consolidated. You can study in 45 minute intervals to take advantage of “primacy” and “recency” effects. That is we tend to remember the first and last things we are exposed to during a study session.

AVOID SELF-INDUCED AMNESIA!

DO NOT GO AND CHECK YOUR PHONE RIGHT AFTER STUDYING KEY INFORMATION. IT WILL GIVE YOU AMNESIA FOR THE INFORMATION.

I do this in seminar to deliberately give participants amnesia for their problems! I have them talk about their problems, and then I abruptly distract them, change topic and/or point something out. When I return back and ask, what were we talking about? They have a hard time re-accessing their problems.

I’ve given you a lot to begin to change and optimize your state … now that you know how to get into an optimal learning state, now we need to give you the best step-by-step instructions to perform the task – that is the actual LEARNING STRATEGIES!

STRATEGY

When a dyslexic child walks into my office, I’m always suspicious. I always say, “you’re going to have to convince me you’re dyslexic because I don’t think you really are”. I always ask them Dyslexia, how do you spell that? They proceed to spell it perfectly. Bit of a paradox if you ask me. I ask them how did you do that? They go it’s written BIG on my binder – DYSLEXIA. Hmmm okay …

Now you see, dyslexia and “poor spelling” in general usually isn’t a brain problem, it’s a mental strategy problem. Dyslexic kids and poor spellers try to spell words by “sounding them out”. Therefore they use the wrong parts of their brain to perform the task. Guess what the best spellers do? They make big bright pictures of the word, and have the word encoded as an image in their mind. That is they use the VISUAL cortex as the primary representational system, not the auditory one. Auditory loop is unreliable & requires you to sound the word out every time. Also, considering English has all kinds of quirky rules, having mental images can save you a lot of trouble. Plus all you have to do is have one big colour coded image in your mind to spell it forwards, backwards etc and recall ONE PICTURE … not sound out a whole sequence of syllables which is thus more individual “chunks”.

So with spelling problems, usually there’s nothing neurologically wrong with the brain its just a matter of using a poor mental strategy and thus the wrong parts of their brain to perform the task. All you need is to learn the optimal mental strategies for the specific task at hand. The same applies for all subjects & disciplines inside and outside of school.

Caution: We were taught to spell words phonetically without ever realizing you can’t even spell phonetics phonetically!!! Try spelling “caught” phonetically! The best spellers make big pictures of the words in their mind so they can spell it forwards and backwards. If you want to become a great speller, The NLP Spelling Strategy, which I learned from Dr. Richard Bandler, and what I teach in an NLP Practitioner Seminar is exactly what you want to learn. You could make a career making kids good spellers just with this one mental strategy!

Now lets talk about the sciences, such as biology. In learning BIOLOGY you’ll be faced with many different diagrams of cells, tissues, organs etc. What sensory representation is going to make learning biology a piece of cake? VISUAL REPRESENTATIONS. This is where you need to develop your photographic memory. That is being able to take a diagram in your textbook and build the same image in your mind. Then you can literally get 100% in academic biology like a walk in the park. It only took me 9 detailed pictures in my mind to complete a 3 hour biology test in less than 45 minutes. The same for neuro-anatomy. We all have a photographic memory, its just you may be using yours to remember vivid mental images of bad memories from the past rather than biology diagrams, books, stock markets, take your pick.

ART – Artists do this same mental strategy as well. Have you ever had an artist on the street draw your face? I did in London England. What did the artist keep on doing? He kept on looking at your face, then looked at the paper, then at your face and then at the paper. He kept going back and forth between your face and the paper, until he could see an image of your face on the paper. Then he simply traced the mental image on the paper. Voila!!! You want to practice doing the same mental phenomenon for your biology diagrams, neuro-anatomy diagrams, chemistry diagrams and mind maps for any subject.

Remember, learning is not about getting all stressed and trying to remember information auditorily by rote. The first step for super-learning is to get into a highly relaxed, calm focused state where visual imagery is enhanced. In this state, if I were measuring your brainwaves we would see increased ALPHA brainwaves. Use deep rhythmic diaphragmatic breathing to get into a SUPER-LEARNING STATE “body relaxed mind shooting ahead”. Now start with a diagram with maybe 7 items. Look at the diagram, look at your notebook. Look at the diagram, look at your notebook. Keep going back and forth until the image of the diagram begins to emerge onto your notes. This takes practice. I have a specific ALPHA trance inducing brain hemispheric trance induction I teach in my practitioner seminar.

Here’s a simplified version of my ALPHA TRANCE INDUCTION

1. Gently close your eyes. Breath in air through your mouth. Slowly let it out through your nose.
2. Put your focus up to the left, on your left frontal lobe
3. Move your focus to the right, on your right frontal lobe
4. Visualize letter “A” on top of your left frontal lobe. What colour is it? Capital or lower case?
5. Visualize #1 on top of your right frontal lobe.
6. Visualize letter “B” on top of your left frontal lobe. Colour?
7. Visualize #2 on top of your right frontal lobe.
8. “C” on top of left frontal lobe. #3 on top of right frontal lobe. Shift backwards all the way to the beginning. I’ll add a supplementary video for the EXERCISE. This is enough to start.

BUILDING YOUR PHOTOGRAPHIC memory is a skill, just like mastering a “form” in a martial art. The same applies for chemistry. If you can’t visualize a double helix molecule, or atoms bonding together, chemistry is going to be difficult. Learning and memory are, in fact, skills not genetically predetermined traits. If you’d like to dive deep into learning and memory, in The Game Changer NLP Practitioner Training Course, we spend an entire day on mental strategies for learning and memory. This includes a wide array of hypnotic and neuroplasticity techniques to enhance learning and memory. Its quite the fun. Its quite the experience.

Overall, you want to acquire better MEMORY strategies. A common trait is that all memory champions perform highly detailed visual representations of information in their mind. If you try to repeat things via rote using auditory loops you’re going to have difficulty remembering. You’re going to be working within the confines of working memory as opposed to limitless long-term storage.

Now have you ever heard about Einstein’s thought experiments? In his experiments, Einstein imagined himself riding on a beam of light and literally rode across the beam of light to figure out how light travels across space. He created these visual experiments to then get a particular “feeling” about the true nature of the universe. Ahhh yes kinesthetics! Kinesthetics are huge for math, physics and memory. In order to differentiate right vs. wrong answers, we need develop a distinctly different “feel” to them. If everything feels the same you can’t tell them apart. This is especially the case in autism or any hyper-active disorder. The brain is in such an overwhelming state of stress and therefore can’t make precise neuro-differentiations. A common example is during tests or performances, many people get anxious and nervous & those feelings impede their ability to kinaesthetically differentiate right from wrong answers. In a good learning state this wouldn’t be a problem.

Now back to memory, I wrote an entire blog on memory which shares many memory strategies.

MEMORY INVENTORY – I’d recommend you take a little memory inventory now. Notice where in your mind the mental images are of the things that you remember you remember vs. those you remember you forget. I bet they are in a different locations, have different focus, and have a different feeling to them. Much of the magic in optimizing memory as well as deliberately forgetting are in the modalities of thought. This is the mental magic most don’t even know exist. I love this stuff.

GREAT ATHLETES

Great athletes are very good at running success in their mind. They see themselves performing perfectly. They notice the nuances of how they’ll look performing perfectly. Then they step inside the image, feel and experience a perfect performance. In essence, they create the memory in their mind before it really happens. You see when you don’t consciously make plans thats when you can get anxious. By definition, anxiety and worry occur via bad mental planning. You imagine yourself messing up, or remember past failures. How is that going to help you to perform perfectly? ITS NOT. Your brain will turn things into what you expect and aim it at. So aim your brain at perfect performance to increase your chances. What does that look like for you?

Finally, we have the third major ingredient that makes the everything work. Without conviction, it doesn’t matter if you have the best strategies in the world. You won’t get full mileage out of them.

CONVICTION

I’m sure you’ve heard of this whole notion of your “story”. When someone talks about “your story”, what it really boils down to are your beliefs – that is what you believe is possible vs. impossible for you.

I’m always intrigued when I work with a client, very often brought to me by a therapist, who believes that nothing could help them get better. They always start off by saying, “I’m stuck with this broken brain and there isn’t anything you could do to help me”. At which point, I’ll look them dead in the eye and say, “Interesting, but you showed up anyway, which means some part of you is convinced you need to change, when would now be a good time to make that happen?” I learned from the best.

First let me point out to you the difference between a conviction vs. belief. The aforementioned person, “said they didn’t believe they could get better” … but that was just lip-service they learned to say to give therapists a hard time. The fact they showed up tells you that they really do believe they can get better. At the very least, you have a very strong belief that they don’t believe to work with! AHA!!! An important point in doing therapy, is knowing that what your clients are saying isn’t necessarily the truth.

HUGE TRUTH BOMB: In fact the individual is very often doing the exact thing they say they can’t do!!! I’ll save more details for a CHANGE WORK 101 blog. On the flip side, clients will literally tell you whats going on in their brain with their language. For example, “I’m having trouble getting going with this project or with completing this course”. What do they need? To get the pictures & mental movies moving in their mind as well as some powerful feelings of motivation. I always get a kick when someone says, “well I’m just drawing a blank”can you see how they just gave away the solution? What do they need? To build a mental representation of them in the future. Now the difference between a conviction vs. belief is in terms of long-term behaviour. Beliefs launch short-term behaviour and conviction long-term behaviour. Not only that very often beliefs have no influence on behaviour, but convictions absolutely do. An example of strong convictions and they being guides for behaviour are religious convictions.

Now the problem with limiting beliefs, like for instance, “I’m not good at math”, is that when you go to do math bad things happen in your mind. You go to do math, and then you remember a crappy memory or you see yourself doing poorly. Therefore you feel bad and don’t perform as well as you really could. Good idea? Absolutely NOT!!! The same applies with interviews, tests, competitions, dating etc. Can you see why it usually only takes me one session to get a client remarkably better? Once you got the manual for the brain, you can figure it out real quick!

The wonderful thing is that all it takes is one experience to completely change a belief. Lets say you believe you have a bad memory. However, then you take a seminar, learn a memory strategy and proceed to remember 20-50 items perfectly. You remember names, dates, books, everything you used to forget. That one experience would dispel that belief.
Or take a fear. Fear of public speaking. Fear of public speaking is greater than fear of death. That means most people would rather be the guy in the coffin than the guy giving the eulogy. Illogical. You bet. The brain is not rational, this is why psychology goes off course – they look for “reasons”. Rather the brain is predictably irrational. Problems aren’t random, they’re systematic. Therefore easily changeable.

Lets also say you learned a technique to get rid of your fear of public speaking. Moreover the technique made it so you could speak smoothly, & eloquently and have the audience eating out of your hands. Then you got up and spoke in front of a 100 people like a breeze. That one experience would dispel that belief.

One counterexample breaks a belief. But 100 counterexamples can’t break a conviction. A conviction is something you’re convinced you can do regardless of how many failures you experience. For example, virtually every Olympic Champion failed many times before actually winning. Current MMA fighter Connor Mcgregor is a terrific example. That conviction in themselves that they could be the best, resulted in persistent action until they achieved glory in spite of the counter-examples, naysayers & failures. Religious convictions are a stark example of the power of conviction to propel behaviour. Across time, there have been groups that have promoted the idea of a DOOMS DAY on a specific date. However, when the end inevitably didn’t come, rather than giving up their conviction they rationalized the counter-example and continued to uphold their conviction.

You see, you all are convinced of certain things. Maybe you’re convinced that you’re a great musician, or you’re great at math or athletics or entrepreneurship. And even if you messed up or failed multiple times you’d still be convinced you’re good at those things.

Were you born with that conviction? No you weren’t. But at a certain point you became convinced you were good at it. Maybe your parents forced you to play a sport or martial art or instrument. But at a certain point you keep playing on your own, with conviction that you’re good at it. You see, you want to deliberately build the conviction that you can learn to be the best at your craft. Right from the start. For students, you want to build the conviction that they can achieve academic excellence in each and every subject. Not just lip service like the client above gave, but conviction they act on. Conviction that persists especially in the face of difficultly. Providing MODELS & EXAMPLES of individuals who overcame odds and deficits to triumph is a great way to start a lesson. There’s a hypnotic phenomenon called Deep Trance Identification, where you think of your IDOL or MODEL, see how they perform, think and feel, and then step inside them in your mind. Lets go further. Build a mental movie of you performing with the exact same skill as them. Side by side. Then reverse engineer a series of steps backwards in time. Make 10 pictures in between the future you and the present you. Ask yourself, “if I were 90% of the way to my goal what would that look like? 80%? 70%? … 10% all the way back to the present.” Then practice running through those steps in your mind.

BUILDING CONVICTION EXERCISE

Think of a conviction you have about yourself. Something you’re proficient at. If you’re convinced that you’re not proficient at anything, use that conviction in your lack of conviction!

When you think of that conviction, notice where the image of it is in your mind, visually. Is it right in front of you, on the left or right? How close is it to you? Colour or black and white? How focused?

Do you have any sound with it? Is the sound on the left, right, in front or behind you?

Somewhere else in your mind build an image of yourself become good at a desired skill. Got it?

Now look at your existing conviction. In the centre of the conviction open up a little circle. A target. In the target see the your new picture – you learning to become proficient at your desired skill. In a moment, very quickly open up the new target picture until it completely covers the existing conviction. Picture in the same place, same size, same dimensions, same closeness, same focus, same conviction. DO THIS 3X VERY FAST. Now take the feeling of that conviction and start to double it, triple it, 10X it, as you look at yourself mastering your craft with complete and utter conviction. Even plan to fail. See yourself confronted with the greatest difficulty you can imagine and the sight of that challenge immediately triggering off this 10X motivation. Each time you fail see yourself becoming more and more motivated … literally the harder the going gets the more motivated you get … so that easy, hard no matter what you’ll will yourself where you want to go.

Without conviction, you won’t try with every fibre of your soul. Therefore you won’t find out what you’re really capable of. That is the very problem. Most people are not convinced they can be good at things … they’ll even say “I’m not the kind of person who …” Even if you have to pretend until you master it, when you’re convinced you can become good at something, you’ll give everything you’ve got. Thus you’ll activate all your talents and discover whats really possible for you.

In summary, you can believe you can be good at math and never open a math book. Similarly, you can believe that you should eat lots of healthy organic vegetables & organic meats, but yet mysteriously find yourself repeatedly in the drive through at McDonalds. I always get a good chuckle seeing these guys who promote healthy organic foods on social media at McDonald’s drive-throughs. So beliefs don’t necessarily trigger long-term sustained behaviours. Convictions DO. Your job is to build a conviction in yourself from the get-go. And do so for your students.

LEARNING LIMITS GONE – Getting Rid of Learning Limits, Negative Experiences, Bad Suggestions.

The problem with Labels, Diagnoses and Limiting Beliefs, is that when you go to do something bad things happen in your head. This makes you perform worse than what you’re really capable of. Or worse, makes it so you don’t even try. If you don’t believe you can do something, because some teacher told you you couldn’t 20 years ago, you’ll never try and thus never find out.

For instance, many of you were forced to stand up and read in front of a class. This was to re-assure the teacher. Of course you may have been anxious because no one taught you how to control your feelings. Hence, the teacher gets you into a state not conducive to reading well and successfully installs a traumatic experience. Worse, they program your brain to read with a Grade 3 voice in your head, which severely limits reading speed and comprehension.

Now did the teacher deliberately do this? Of course not. The same trick was done to them. However, its remarkable the number of grown adults who come to me at present age 40 or 50 and complain about what some teacher, parent or person did to them when they were 12 years old.
Vicious hypnotists and naysayers exist all over the planet. “You’re not smart” “You’re not mathematical” “you’re not the kind of person who could be happy” “you’re not enough”. These are only ideas. They’ll only be true if you believe them. If you don’t believe them, I guarantee you’ll prove them wrong.

HOW DO WE CREATE MENTAL LIMITS? Operative world “Mental”. They’re not real. They’re just ideas in our head. Let’s say your client goes, “I just can’t do it”. Be it math, building a business, or starting a new relationship.

IN ORDER TO CREATE THEIR BELIEF IN THEIR LACK OF BELIEF, aka, their MENTAL PROBLEM they must do one of the following &/or both:

1. WHEN WE GO TO DO AN ACTIVITY WE REMEMBER BAD PAST EXPERIENCES – hence you feel bad, don’t really enjoy it, and don’t really access all your talents.

2. BAD PLANNING – WHEN YOU DO AN ACTIVITY YOU SEE OR IMAGINE YOURSELF PERFORMING POORLY. You plan for things to go wrong so therefore they do.

GET RID OF BAD MEMORY EXERCISE
Step by step instructions for this exercise was given in MEMORY MAGIC blog. In essence, in order for a belief to affect you viscerally, it must have certain properties – I.e. it must be a fairly large memory, vivid, clear. By changing sub-modalities and mentally re-programming the memory it changes your automatic neurological response.

BELIEF CHANGE EXERCISE
Identify limiting belief. How do you know you’re not X? … Client might say well … “I just know …” How do you just know? Are you remembering the past or seeing yourself not doing well in the future? … Are you sure you believe this?

1. Think of limiting belief you want to get rid of.
2. Think of a new belief you want to have. I.e. Belief that you can become a good speller or a good public speaker.
3. Compare the sub-modalities of something you’re CERTAIN OF vs. UNCERTAIN OF. Pick non emotionally laden things. I.e. Breathing is good (certain) vs. what you’ll have for lunch in two weeks (uncertain). i.e. VISUALLY: where are the images in your mind, different location? Different size?
4. Imagine the limiting belief firing off into the distance and popping back up into the same location as the UNCERTAINTY image.
5. At the same time, Imagine the new resourceful belief firing off into the distance and popping up into the submodalities of the strong belief.
6. Do this 3-5X very quickly.

Read Dr. Richard Bandler’s Get the Life you Want, which is loaded with practical NLP techniques.

FUN. MORE FUN = MORE LEARNING.

Make learning an animated hyper-sensory experience. Both LEARNERS & TEACHERS MUST TAKE RESPONSIBILITY.

Most teachers and trainers repeat the same schtick over and over again. Or speak with one rate or tempo.

What captures the imagination of the audience and paints big bright vivid pictures in their mind as they listen to a speech is dynamic, wide-ranging tempo, rhythm, tonality, voices and accents. As a speaker there’s a huge difference between talking about something and creating a hyper-sensory experience for the audience. You want to bring to life different characters, scenes, and stories in the minds of the audience for them to experience. Guess what? Their brains will fill in the blanks! You don’t even have to be that great at accents or tonality shifts, just add it in and the audiences brains will fill in the rest! Applying NLP & Neuroscience based tactics builds high level skill. You need to learn the fundamentals before you can weave them altogether into epic performances.

The Game Changer NLP training course will teach you how to elicit & create states, anchoring, how to build ideas in the minds of the audience and how to use the power of stories to capture full attention and embed learnings & suggestions that will seamlessly influence the unconscious minds’ of the audience. Whether its public speaking, teaching, sales or communication in relationships these brain-based communication skills are unbelievable in what they can allow you to do.

For students, if while learning your eyes are glued to your notepad, your only input is auditory. Not only that you’re distorting everything the speaker says onto your paper. Depending on your seminar, you can absorb way more and much faster, by heightening your senses, paying full attention, watching closely with your eyes and hearing each and every word the speaker says. Trust your unconscious processes. What was the last movie you watched? Who were the main characters? What was the plot? Did you take notes? No! Yet you could probably even replay many of the scenes in your mind and describe them in acute detail to me, YES!

Paying full attention and simply watching & absorbing is especially important in the NLP Practitioner Course. Absorbing how techniques are performed, the tonality shifts, the rhythm etc. Not only that observing the syntax, that is how words and techniques are combined sequentially. If you’re genuinely interested in helping people, either via coaching, teaching and/or simply being the best parent, I know no other course that will adequately prepare you for the tasks ahead like this NLP practitioner will.

One more note on taking notes! Taking notes does divide your attention. By paying full attention you can create a more vivid imprint of the information. Especially visually. 80% of our sensory processing goes through the visual cortex, you need to allow your conscious and unconscious mind to have a good visual representation of information.

MY FINAL MESSAGE FOR LEARNING & CHANGE-WORK

“People do not learn by being given content, they learn by being given an experience”. An experience gives you each of the 5 ingredients, re-wires your brain and sets the foundation for limitless learning – “An experience changes your state, teaches you a strategy both consciously & unconsciously, builds conviction, changes old beliefs & past limits, & most importantly, if done effectively is tons of fun!!!”

That is the #1 Game Changer Advantage – I first give you an experience to make all the subsequent learning extremely easy. Thats why if you want to optimize your brain, and most importantly have the skill to execute brain changes in others, then these are the types of skills you want to learn. Build a powerful foundational experience with teachings and demonstrations and then from that point on learning is a breeze.

I hope you enjoyed this one. This is a really important blog. These are critical skills. If we can teach children how to learn and become really good at things from a young age, they won’t need to resort to drugs, illicit behaviours, or unnecessarily buy into limits and “labels”. Remember, competence builds confidence. When you become a skilled learner and communicator the world is your oyster.

Sincerely,

Chris “Super-Learner” Wyllie.

THE FAST FRONTAL LOBE FIX – Fixing your Brain’s Filter to Overcome Anxiety, Indecision, “Stuckness”

THE FAST FRONTAL LOBE FIX

FIXING A FAULTY FILTER – How to OPTIMIZE YOUR BRAIN’S FILTER to Overcome Anxieties, Indecision, “STUCKNESS” & Be Laser Focused.

What do Depression, Anxiety, OCD & Procrastination have in common? 

What common issue do Autistic individuals and Entrepreneurs who are “STUCK” share?

The Answer: 

A FAULTY BRAIN FILTER


In this Article I go into full detail of the mechanics of how the Brain & Mind work specifically in cases of:

  1. Indecision, “Stuckness”, Procrastination – A common problem among entrepreneurs, business professionals and students 
  2. Mental & Behavioural Disorders like OCD, Anxiety, Depression, Excessive Worrying, Anorexia/Bulimia
  3. Neurological Conditions like ADD, AUTISM 

I also dive deep into:

  •   High Performance, FLOW States & How to Architect your Genius and Creativity 

For you high performers, in this article I will teach you how to hack your brain for optimal learning, focus, productivity & performance. You can gain insights that will take your game to the next level by observing what happens in the brain when it dysfunctions – so pay attention and find the key learnings in all the sections.

I created this article for both true BRAIN-HACKERS, and professionals, teachers, therapists, doctors and coaches to provide you with new insights about how the brain works, and how to develop precise control over your brain. If you want to learn the mechanics of how to optimize your own brain, and the brain function of your kids, clients and patients this comprehensive article is worth the read. A little time upfront developing a deep understanding of your brain, will streamline your success down the road. Lets get to it … 

The primary function of your BRAIN is as a an ANTENNA and FILTER.

You can leverage these properties of your brain to learn faster, think clearer, overcome anxiety, procrastination and “stuckness” and take more decisive action. I will show you how. From school to smarts to exquisite success in business this article, I lay out the strategies to program your brain for optimal motivation, decision-making, and success-driven behaviour. There are TWO EXTREMES: your brain’s filter may be under-active resulting in Autism, ADHD, Procrastination, “STUCKNESS” OR over-active resulting in OCD, Depression, Addictions & Self-Sabotaging Behavioural Habits.

However, whether you’re the CEO of Google or you’re a child with a learning disability, the fundamentals of optimizing the mechanics of your brain function are the same. The person with Depression, is not all that different than the Executive or Lawyer who has Anxiety, nor is the child with Autism all that different from the Entrepreneur who’s “STUCK” with indecision and procrastination. Let me explain so you can see where your brain is at … 

You can easily leverage the properties of your brain to ARCHITECT YOUR OWN GENIUS just like Einstein and Tesla did. In fact, Tesla was born with his senses so blown wide open, he received so much un-filtered sensory input it almost drove him crazy! Yet, in todays fast-paced information age, we face the opposite problem, our brain “shuts off” and is dulled to hyper-filter out information and sensory input as a protection mechanism in the face of the tsunami of stress and information. This cuts you off from your genius and creativity. But not to worry, you can quickly dis-inhibit your brain and begin opening the doors to perception & creativity with specific brain practices. 

How does your brain really work?

Just as an infinite amount of written language can be produced from a finite 26 letters in the English language, your brain has trillions of neuro-cortical connections and can generate an infinite number of things from one idea or thought. The GENERATIVE capacity of your brain allows for an infinite number of possibilities from just one thought, picture, internal voice or feeling. The human brain is designed to imagine, plan and create new realities. This is the power of our consciousness to organize and bring coherent structure to energy and information to create new realities we imagine in our minds. We are designed to see the world the way it’s not and then make it so. The brain is the ultimate LEARNING, CREATIVE, GENERATING MACHINE.

However, the brain not only GENERATES and CREATES, it also DELETES. Do you think “STUCK-NESS” is too much or too little deletion? 

The answer is BOTH. Some people constantly run thousands of scenarios all day long, and can never narrow down and focus their thoughts. Others become hyper-focused on one thing, one outcome, one scenario, one problem and can’t see past it. Same label “stuckness”, but two different processes occurring in the brain, and thus the brain training should be unique in each case.  

Now in order to prevent sensory & information overload, your brain takes the incoming information, energies & sensory stimuli in the universe and REDUCES and FOCUSES it into specific things. This narrowing of focus enables us to function more efficiently in the specific realm of the world we are aware of, but also closes us off from everything beyond our model of the world, that which our brain has blocked off. The Filter enhances efficiency but can lead to rigidity & block us from creativity. See below. 

For instance, the brain takes the combination of thoughts, feelings and physical sensations and REDUCES it to emotions,“I’m feeling Sad … I’m feeling Mad … I’m feeling Frustrated …I’m feeling Determined”. The FRONTAL LOBES play a key role in deleting the stimuli and sensory input our brain deems unimportant, and cognitively evaluating the combination of thoughts, feelings, sensations happening from moment to moment. What one person labels as anxiety, another may label as excitement. Each brain filter works differently, thats why being a brain specialist and optimizing each individual brain is so much fun.

When the brain doesn’t FILTER and REDUCE information effectively, you end up with schizophrenia (hallucinations, disconnection from reality), impulsivity (inability to regulate thoughts), ADD (inability to focus on task at hand), emotional volatility (difficulty regulating emotions), Indecision & over-thinking (mind races in loops), behavioural inflexibility (hyper-active filter) and neurological conditions like Autism (sensory overload).

If you’re an entrepreneur, and you’re not focused and lack clear business and marketing plans, the problem is your Frontal Lobes aren’t focusing your talents and skills, into clear, images and value for you to communicate to clients. The lack of business clarity is a reflection of the lack of clarity in your brain. In which case, Brain Training to strengthen your frontal lobes for focus, motivation & decision-making is key.

SPEECHWhen you speak your brain activates the word you’re thinking of and many other words which sound the same, and others which have similar meanings, simulataneously. The filter, the frontal lobes, then DELETES those other words, and focuses on the specific word you express. For example, the word: CAUGHT. When we think of “CAUGHT” other words are activated, like “Cot”, “Faught”, “Taught”, “Taut”, “Catch”.  Your Brain deletes these other words and you express CAUGHT. When the FILTER falters it leads to speech impediments like Autism, in which speech is muddled. The frontal lobes play a key role in regulating the activity and input from the auditory, visual and kinesthetic cortex.

KEY POINT:  In the brain everything is happening all the time. The nervous system is THE ANTENNA which receives incoming energy and stimuli, and the cortex, specifically the Frontal Lobes, DELETES most of it and tunes our mind to a specific IDEA, WORD, OR STREAM OF THOUGHTS – just like the radio channel.

If your brain is fuzzy, and you’re indecisive and unclear, and one part of your brain is saying one thing, and another saying something different, and you feel like you’re being pulled in different directions, your Brain isn’t tuning into a SPECIFIC, CLEAR CHANNEL. Implement FAST FILTER FIX BELOW. 

As mentioned, your brain perceives an infinite amount of sensory stimuli, and actively blocks most of it to prevent our conscious mind from being over-loaded. This narrowing of focus allows us to more efficiently pattern and act on the information we perceive to be important. Psychoactive drugs like LSD shut down the FILTER, and so heighten the range of sensory input and energy that we consciously access. The input was always there its just in your normal state of consciousness your brain was blocking it out. Our brains have a baseline level of LATENT INHIBITION, which is how inhibited our brain is to prevent neurological overload. The more technology, social media and information overload you’re exposed to, the more your brain increases its Latent Inhibition – this is a major problem for entrepreneurs and students working under high stress, as it dulls creativity. Media, news, television, all these features of the modern world shut off our brains. So not only is fake light, and EMF bad for the brain for the reasons Neurosurgeons such as Jack Kruse document, here is another insight as to why its so harmful for your cognition & creativity. 

Optimizing your creativity and genius requires that you doors to perception in your brain, which can be achieve with Neurolinguistic Programming, Meditation, Hypnosis, Brain Qigong, being in nature, martial arts, tonic herbs and natural nootropics, which all decrease the brain’s latent inhibition. Thus dis-inhibits your brain and heightens your awareness by, loosening your neurological FILTER so that you access more information, energies, and expansive states of consciousness. Follow the GENIUS GUIDE below to architect your genius.

YOU ARE AWARE OF ONLY A FRACTION

Your brain is constantly bombarded with smells, sights, sounds and tastes but constantly, but only a tiny fraction actually reaches consciousness. Only 0.0001% of all the visual impressions that reach the retina of the eye are forwarded to the brain’s visual centre and most never reaches consciousness.

As a result of this natural PROTECTION MECHANISM against SENSORY OVERLOAD, the more we are bombarded with EMFs, fake lighting, information, stress, excitatory foods (especially processed foods), the more our brain raises its baseline rate of inhibition, blocking us off from more and more sensory input. This dulls creativity, which is exactly what we see in kids who use technology 24/7. This is a deeper neurological understanding of WHY fake, excitatory foods, like processed foods and processed sugars are kryptonite for your brain – they inhibit your brain in the long-term.

Latent inhibition is your brain’s ability to block information out of consciousness. LSD reduces latent inhibition and expands consciousness. Too much technology raises latent inhibition and so decreases our consciousness. Too much input over-burdens consciousness and therefore causes us to lose focus. Studies show sharp increase in consciousness in students who took a break from technology. And as I’ve seen on QEEG Brain Maps, qigong, meditation, NLP, brainpower nutrition, all markedly reduce latent inhibition and thus heighten focus & creativity. All the above re-calibrate and re-attune your senses. 

As mentioned, geniuses like Tesla, have very low levels of inhibition, and so their brain perceives a vaster array of energies, electromagnetic fields and sensory input, and states of consciousness facilitating greater creativity. Its much easier to architect new ideas and innovations without the “breaks being on in your brain”. In todays world, the reason people are only using a small fraction of their brainpower is because their brain has been “blocked and inhibited”, by the stressors, information & our lifestyle.


THE GENIUS GUIDE  – An Introduction

How to Unblock & Unlock The Magic in your Brain. (book to come). 

1.  MEDITATION– decreases the multiplicity of focus of attention, which at first increases Prefrontal Activation, heightening FOCUS & narrowing of thoughts usually on ONE THING, breathing, mantra, relaxation etc, and then“Turns Off” the filtering Frontal Lobes as the neurons habituate, dropping you down into deeper, less inhibited, states of consciousness where you access more of the information in your brain and unconscious mind. Meditation decreases the sheer amount of stimulation your brain is exposed to, thereby reducing your brain’s baseline rate of inhibition. Meditation is the perfect pit stop. All super-quantum computers need to be cooled in a dark room. Your brain is an even more miraculous super-computer which requires the same cooling and rejuvenation.

2.  TONIC HERBS –  Ginseng, Reishi, Goji, Cacao activate the full neuro-symphony by raising brain energy and neurotransmitter levels like Dopamine, Serotonin and beta-endorphins, balancing your brain, body and immune system. More balanced brain chemistry focuses an under active filter, and relaxes an over-active filter. Email chriswyllie@gamechanger.expert to book a consult for what you need to balance your brain chemistry.

3.  HIGH INTENSITY EXERCISE (HIIT) – Highly Focused, Intense periods of Exercise forces your brain to engage your entire body’s resources to perform the task at hand. Over time, this trains your brain to focus at a more intense level, and access more of your neurological and energetic resources, to perform at a higher capacity when you work. Thus training you to operate at your peak brainpower when you work. HIIT raises dopamine, endorphins and serotonin which increase clarity, focus and cognitive flexibility. Did you know that Tesla was prescribed a daily exercise regimen to help stabilize his brain function? 

4.  MARTIAL ARTS and FINE MOTOR EXERCISE – Learning a Martial Art and Fine Motor Movements like Tai Chi, at first requires tremendous Frontal Lobe Activation and Conscious Focus. Over time, “the movements are automated into your body and procedural memory” into motor programs that run unconsciously and don’t require thinking. Thus Tai Chi becomes a Moving, Qigong, Meditation – when done properly. Thus, exercise over time allows your frontal lobes to decrease in activity, “take a break” allowing your filter to loosen, and the unconscious processes in your brain to take over. The result is you start to synchronize more with the universe, feel more balanced and flow like water and flow with “The WAY”. IN THESE HEIGHTENED FLOW STATES PERFORMANCE BECOMES EFFORTLESS. This makes it easier to access flow states in all areas of your life, such as when working in business. Building the neurological machinery in one area of your life, you can use to perform better in others.

Also repetitive movements like running help to trigger flow states, by repeatedly activating, thus habituating neurons, so that they shut off, giving you access to neuro-cortical pathways not regularly accessed during waking consciousness. Hence, “the Runner’s Trance.” 

5. BRAIN TRAINING & NEUROLINGUISTIC PROGRAMMING – With Neurofeedback your brain receives immediate feedback of its own activity, helping you learn to consciously control your brainwaves for heightened Focus, Memory, Creativity and performance. Neurotechologies like QEEG brain training, Neurofield & Neurofeedback are effective for re-wiring the brain. Neurolinguistic Programming and Hypnosis are important for optimizing your thinking processes, unconscious processes & automatic neurological motor programs aka “Your Habits”. The foundation of Neurolinguistic Programming is learning to use your mind in specific ways to be more motivated, more focused, and make better decisions to get the things you want, while eliminating the limiting beliefs, fears and past blockages that were getting in your way. Neurolinguistic Programming is best done by another person to you. As a student of Dr. Richard Bandler, the creator of NLP, I’ve learned the true, genuine Neurolinguistic Programming.


Back to how your brain works … 

As mentioned, your brain takes all the ideas and possibilities floating around in consciousness and DELETES the majority of these and focuses on something specific – this is the final task of the frontal lobes. The Frontal Lobes bring this information into conscious awareness. The same is true of your radio. Your Radio’s antenna accesses all the FM and AM channels simultaneously, but the information and music you hear, is from the specific channel you’re dialled into at that moment. What happens when your brain flips all over the place and can’t stick to a clear channel? ANXIETY, INDECISION, BRAIN FOG! Like a radio, your brain filters and deletes the information input of the other stations, in order to play the music clearly from the one station – the station playing at any given moment is akin to your conscious mind. Yet, you should know that your brain is the whole antenna, which is always accessing the entire range of frequencies. YOUR FILTER MAY JUST BE MAL-FUNCTIONING, in which case you may be tuned into a fuzzy frequency or the wrong channel, or you can’t STICK TO A CHANNEL (ADD!). DEPRESSION, ANXIETY, OVER-THINKING, WORRYING ALERT!!!

A second clear picture for you is that your brain works just like a google search. When you think or ask a question, your brain sorts and searches through the trillions of neuro-cortical connections, to activate particular neural networks. These neural networks are connected to many related pathways. Just like a Google Search, your conscious mind ACTIVELY SEARCHES  and “PULL UP” specific information as well as related information to what you searched from your unconscious. Your brain hierarchically shows you the closest matches. Once you’ve chosen a specific website or domain, the other options are deleted and you go straight to the website you’ve chosen. Just like surfing the WEB.

Consciously and unconsciously your brain is always running, like a car engine. Networks like your “DEFAULT MODE NETWORK” (DMN), which generate your sense of self, are always running. The DMN includes parietal lobes, which examine your relation to your surroundings, visual centres which process visual input, and your auditory cortex which connects to sounds and memories. The Frontal lobes then FILTER, DELETE, and FOCUS your conscious mind on what you believe is the relevant information. In Autistic kids I observe hyperactivity of default mode network, but poor frontal lobe regulation inhibiting clear distinctions of what is “self vs. other”, for example. This is why Autistic kids, rarely close their eyes as they lose, “their sense of self” when they do so. However, with brain training I’ve gotten autistic kids to the point where I can get them to relax, close their eyes and do all kinds of learning neuro-plasticity work.

Fixing a Faulty Filter

Working with tons of autistic kids, I see the tremendous activity going on in their brains. Their inability to consciously communicate their inner thoughts and ideas, precisely with language, may be caused by poor frontal lobe function, resulting in an inability to FILTER OUT AND FOCUS on specific information. Hence, speech comes out as a jumbled mess.

Its important to note that there is a difference between language reception/comprehension and language production pathways. So even though your child may yet to be speaking clearly, be very careful what you say to them. It all gets in, even though it doesn’t all come out. We understand language before we produce it.

NEUROLOGICAL BACKGROUND: Generally speaking, in Autism, the developing fetus is exposed to a stress response which activates the mother’s immune system. This can be caused by an infinite number of stressors, such as infection, EMF, biologic stressors which hyper-activate the mothers immune system which then attacks fetal brain proteins and leads to premature mass release of BDNF Brain Derived Nerve Growth Factor. This causes the entire cortex of the developing brain to glue and glob together”. As a result, the entire brain links and fires at the same time whenever one part is stimulated. This is why autistic kids are SOOOO sensitive to stimuli, because each sensory input activates their entire brain, and results in over-stimulation. Unfortunately under stressful conditions, what fails to happen in the developing brain is the precise specialization of the local brain regions like the prefrontal cortex. A major part of brain development is that each brain region becomes highly specialized to perform the specific tasks its designed for. For example, the frontal lobes play a major role in Language, Speech, Cognition & Decision-Making. In Autism many centres of the brain like the prefrontal language centres do not fully develop their full degree of specialization as in normal kids. So neuroplasticity training is necessary to develop the precise specialized function of specific brain regions, and deeply develop stronger neural networks, across brain regions that control language, speech, motor function, coordination and cognition.

Since the frontal lobes FILTER and DELETE, in the Autistic brain there’s tremendous activity, but the frontal lobes, don’t fully filter that information to enable the child to specifically FOCUS ON and thus EXPRESS one idea, one word, one thought coherently at a time. Autism may be tied to a poor NEURO-CORTICAL SPECIALIZATION and thus require very precise Neuroplasticity training, just like you can read about in Dr. Norman Doidge’s book, “The Brain’s Way of Healing”. 

In my work with autistic kids I see clear differences in how they spatially represent and access information, which I notice by the way their eyes move, and body orients. What may be perceived as lack of eye contact, and difficulty communicating, may just be a difference in how autistic kids spatially represent and access information in their brain.

As mentioned above, as it related to language, before we say any word, we think of the word, and in the process our brain generates all potential words that sound similar, and has similar meaning- taught, caught, fought, told, tout. The brain deletes those other words, and focuses on one specifically. This is the job of the Frontal Lobes, to take language which is generated unconsciously and then express specific words, ideas, thoughts. 


THE BRAIN’S FILTERING FUNCTION is exemplified by the Classic Case we learn in Neuroscience – that of Phineas Gage.

Phineas Gage, was working on a railroad and had an iron rod go through his frontal lobes. After this incident he experienced extreme personality changes, as he now had NO FILTER to control the emotional shifts. With his frontal lobes destroyed he was left with no filter to delete the waves of emotional activity, and personality fluctuations going on in head. We all get mad, and there are all times, where we want to, “curse, fight and tell people off”, but our frontal lobes regulate that internal activity, and select something more appropriate to say. Thats when the frontal lobes are working well of course. (IMPULSIVITY ALERT!) When the frontal lobes aren’t working right, we don’t filter and speak language optimally. In fact, the frontal lobes don’t fully finish developing until age 25-27 which is why adolescents, teens and young adults are prone to impulsive behaviour – their frontal lobes, they’re FILTERS, are not fully developed. They’ve yet to fully develop their ability to DELETE inappropriate behaviours and so are more apt to act impulsively.

At the same time, for individuals with learning and language disabilities, the filtering abilities of the brain are off which is why they may produce word salad, jumbled speech etc.

The more you or your child is prone to impulsive behaviour, the more brain training for their frontal lobes they need, with Neurofeedback, Neurofield, Neurolinguistic Programming & my own proprietary Neuroplasticity Protocols.


 THE BRAIN UNFILTERED – The Extreme

If you’ve taken psychoactive drugs like LSD, you know that they open the doorways to perception, enabling you to see colours, energies, fields you don’t normally. They do this by shutting down the filtering mechanisms in the brain. Thus giving you access to more of your unconscious activity and a larger spectrum of sensory stimuli. This can be very useful for allowing you to experience more than you normally do and thus expanding your model of the world. However, the most effective way to open the doors to perception is with the doors to perception. This can be done with hypnosis, NLP, meditation, qigong etc. 

MEDITATION and TAI CHI are extremely effective in shutting down the normal FILTERING AND DELETION MECHANISMS of the brain, thereby allowing you to access more of your brainpower. In fact, with meditation, and tai chi (moving meditation), the repetitious, rhythmic movements, and rhythmic breathing lead to a “calming & TURNING OFF” of the deletion mechanisms in the brain, expanding your ability to tune into energies and information in the universe. With meditation and tai chi, repeated activation causes the frontal lobes to habituate, “turn off”, thus you access deeper dimensions of emotions, memory  and unconscious activity and sensory input from the auditory, visual and kineasthetic cortices. This is why meditation and tai chi, are profound for expanding your energy, consciousness and creativity.

SCHOOL SYSTEM ALERT: unfortunately our school system’s hyper-analytical focus on rote, pure left-brain learning, causes hyper development of THE FILTER and DELETION mechanisms of the frontal lobes. Since learning is all frontal, “it’s there for the test and then its gone”. Worse this approach cuts us off from our CREATIVITY. The result is the creative juices, the passion, the expansion of our children’s minds and the way they think, narrows and becomes rigid, as opposed to rich and fluid. WE NEED TO TEACH KIDS IN A WAY THAT THEIR BRAIN LEARNS BEST. MOST IMPORTANTLY, WE NEED TO TEACH KIDS HOW THEIR BRAIN WORKS, & HOW LEARNING WORKS, SO THAT WAY THEY CAN DISCOVER THE BEST WAYS THAT THEY LEARN.

We should teach kids how to expand their brain’s capabilities to become good at art, math, science, english, all the fundamental fields, so that they really can discover what they’re passionate about. Instead of specializing and narrowing, we should be expanding the range of expertise that students develop.

So what would be the key upgrades to the School System?


BRAIN EDUCATION SCHOOL SYSTEM UPGRADE

THE BRAIN HYPER-FILTERED

How to FREE A HYPER-ACTIVE FILTER in cases of Depression, OCD, Over-thinking, Hesitation, Lack of Focus, Inaction

Depression and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, OCD, are cases of EXTREME FILTERING by the brain, whereby the brain filters out much of the sensory stimuli and experiences and hyper-focuses on something specific – often a negative traumatic experience, person or behaviour. When it comes to depression, depressed individuals often have happy, positive feelings and experiences just like regular people, but their brain FILTERS out and DELETES these good experiences and instead focuses on bad memories, bad pictures, bad movies with the bad feelings attached to them. In the case of PTSD, the brain hyper-focuses on one specific memory or a stream of related negative memories. With these experiences blown up so big and intense, and such powerful adrenaline & kinaesthetic response it can cause the rest of their life and regular life to seem, “dull, drab and unmoving”. In extreme depression, the brain hyper-focuses on remembered bad experiences or constantly plays out negative scenarios happening in the future. I work with tons of these types of clients and every little thing, they’re constantly analyzing themselves thinking, “what if this happens …”, “what if that happens …” and run all kinds of scenarios where they see bad outcomes playing out. It’s bad planning. These individuals are so busy in their head that life passes them by.

In these cases, Neurolinguistic Programming is very effective for changing the focus and direction of the brain. Balancing brain neurochemistry simultaneously is critical in order for to facilitate greater mind control, and link these mental changes across the full spectrum of brain states.

Obsessive Compulsives similarly are zeroed in on specific behaviours and things, which constitutes the obsession and the compulsion is the need to act on it. You may obsessively worry about stressors, fears, anxieties, judgments of others, in which case your brain filters out good possibilities, and instead focuses on a few specific possibilities, usually bad ones, which your brain may be making BIG, BRIGHT, and CLOSE in your mind, thus creating bad feelings in your body.

THE KEY: The problem isn’t that you’re obsessing, the problem is that you don’t have the control to turn it ON and OFF and aim your obsessions. You should be able to put the things you want into the obsession machine in your mind, and go after them with absolute compulsion. Bruce Lee and every great athlete and entrepreneur is obsessed with mastering their craft.

HYPOCHONDRIAC ALERTFINE TUNE YOUR BRAIN – Realize that every obsessive loop, has an ending point at which point the loop re-sets. Obsessives and hypochondriacs who wash their hands tens of times, reach a point in each loop where they turn the water “off”. This is the point at which you as the practitioner need to create a new loop which connects to the end of that loop, as opposed to the end of that loop just triggering it to start over again. These fine mechanics are key. 

How do you know when to turn the water off? Do you get a certain feeling? What changes in your mind and body just before you turn the water off? These are the kinds of questions I ask clients to enable them to consciously access and begin controlling these unconscious automated processes, which is just a habit that a person has practiced thousands of times and thus neurologically become very good at.

OCD ALERT!  People with OCD are looking for COMFORT. What they need are to be taught more effective ways to feel comfort. With NLP & Brain Training I teach them how to relax and feel comfort. Neurologically OCD is tied to several neurotransmitter imbalances, specifically with GABA and Serotonin. GABA is “the OFF button” for the brain and serotonin increases neuro-flexibility and sense of calm and comfort. See this Brain Map, and red lines of HYPER-COHERENCE that show how the brain of a person with OCD is “locked in”. This is correctable with Brain Training.

HYPER-COHERENT "LOCKED IN" OCD BRAIN

HYPER-COHERENT “LOCKED IN” OCD BRAIN

Remember, being obsessive isn’t a bad thing, and in fact, is a very good thing WHEN ITS AIMED & CONTROLLED IN A USEFUL DIRECTION. Titanic entrepreneurs are obsessed with learning and innovating in their business. And if you’re a smart man, you’ll be obsessed with loving, caring and making your wife happy!

The problem is that most people don’t know how to:

  1. PUT THE RIGHT THINGS INTO THE MOTIVATION & OBSESSION NEURO-CORTICAL PATHWAYS IN THEIR BRAIN 
  2. CONTROL & ACTIVATE THESE NEURO-CORTICAL PATHWAYS TO GET MOTIVATED & PROPELLED TOWARDS THE THINGS THEY WANT.

Anorexics and Bulimics do what they do, because they feel they’re eating is the only thing they can control. But yet paradoxically its out of control because they can’t turn hunger ON and OFF. Every ON switch needs an off switch – ESPECIALLY IN YOUR BRAIN. 

YOU NEED TO BUILD A CHANNEL CHANGER FOR YOUR BRAIN

“The most important ability for human beings to develop is the AWARENESS and ability to PAY ATTENTION to their brain and senses, and be able to shift their brains state at will. To turn Motivation, ON AND OFF, turn excitement ON and OFF, turn relaxation ON and OFF, turn stress ON and OFF” 

INDECISION / PROCRASTINATION / HESITATION 

Indecision, hesitation and procrastination, occur when your brain goes in loops and loops, and often your brain is constantly running scenarios without a clear EXIT point to connect thinking to action. Ultimately the product of our thoughts will be some feeling and action. 

Like a mathematical model, your thinking processes have an initial TEST (an initial place to start. i.e. you see a business AD and then start to think about your business), then an OPERATION (thinking processes) and then a final TEST (often which idea feels the strongest) and EXIT (point at which you move into action). Your thinking processes need to have a final TEST and EXIT, otherwise the operations and scenarios keep playing out in your mind and nothing ever gets done.

You need to learn how to be more precise with THE OPERATIONS of your brain, make sure you’re using the right neuro-cortical pathways and thus THINKING PROCESSES for the task at hand. Then you need a strong FINAL TEST, which generally will be a strong feeling, that a particular action is most appropriate for the situation.

MANUAL FOR YOUR BRAIN:

1. Keep THE OUTCOME you want in mind, so that way you can TEST which thoughts & ideas will most effectively get your there. 

2. Use the appropriate thinking process for the task at hand. Making your business plan for the next year should be a different & more elaborate system, than motivating yourself to get to the gym. The mental processing you use should MATCH the complexity of the task. We  are notorious for making things more complicated than they need to be. Like diet, nutrition, exercise etc. 

You need to strengthen your brain’s ability to filter our the garbage and focus on the fastest, most efficient routes to success. The neurotransmitter Dopamine is what hones on our brain into solutions to “LOCK IN” and “SAVE THAT ONE” and keeps our mind focused on the target that we want to achieve. When dopamine is low, our brain tends to run wild.

High levels of dopamine are critical when learning, especially science. I read tons of journals, articles and books, and most of the information is garbage, so I don’t assimilate into my brain, but I’ll find the few golden nuggets of wisdom that make it worthwhile. Much of the information on the brain and science, especially on the internet is questionable, so you need a strong filter, that like on a computer puts most of the non-sense into the garbage bin and the gems of wisdom, you save and elaborately file and encode in your memory.

Dopamine increases pattern recognition, planning, executive function, and attention. The Prefrontal Cortex is the thinking part of our brain, which evaluates ideas, scenarios and then make decisions about what to act on. When Dopamine levels are high, we are very action-oriented towards what we want. This is because DOPAMINE, helps to increase the FOCUS of our thoughts on specific targets. When dopamine is low in your brain you become indecisive and your thoughts run in loops with no EXIT.  DOPAMINE is a key to DECISIVE ACTION. It strengthens your Brain’s Focusing and Filtering Abilities. DOPAMINE = FOCUS. The genius guide & strategies above all raise DOPAMINE! Do them!

The other key neuro-chemical, to “FREE” a HYPER-ACTIVE FILTER, and increase cognitive flexibility for OCD’s, the Depressive’s, and those who feel “Stuck” and “Blocked” is: SEROTONIN. Meditation, Weight Lifting, Tai Chi, Sunlight and Super-Brain Beverages like the Loving Libido Mocha, all raise Serotonin. Cacao is a fantastic serotonin booster that increases brain flexibility. The Loving Libido mocha helps with OCD, Depression and excessive worrying. I serve all kinds of these brain beverages to my clients.

Taking control of your brain is the essence of Neuroplasticity! We are the one being on this planet, that can actively PROGRAM, the PROGRAMMING of ourselves. By changing the way you think, and how you use your brain, you change how the neuro-cortical pathways wire and fire in your brain. Moreover, with precise brain training you can change the brainwave frequencies your brain regions resonate at when they do fire, and create deep lasting changes in the unconscious process that drive your behaviour. You can WIRE YOUR BRAIN FOR SUCCESS, to be “in the zone” across all areas of your life and across all states of consciousness.

Reset your brain’s automatic. Science shows that your brain fires a fraction of a second before we become conscious of our thoughts. The brain “primes us” for behaviour. It is this magical interval between brain activation and our behaviour where we have the opportunity to re-wire our brains SET-POINT. This is where the POWER OF CONSCIOUSNESS comes into play and how you can use your mind to change how your brain “Automatically” fires and responds to situations. You can re-wire fear to determination, hesitation to wanton “GO FOR IT”, anxiety to relentless tenacity.

In fact, Design Human Engineering (DHE), is a course taught by my mentor Dr. Richard Bandler, which is an evolution of NLP. The foundation of which is teaching you how to develop precise control over your own brain, to expand your thinking. Expanding your brain’s thinking capacities starts with learning how to consciously control the form and modalities in which you think. For example, when we feel certain feelings, those feelings have particular properties or sub-modalities. These components include location, pressure, speed, temperature, directionyou need to learn how to consciously control and manipulate these variables. Feelings are not “just things that happen to you”, they are neurological activity, which our brain evaluates and labels, “fear, anger, happiness”. You can learn to consciously take control of your feelings.

Developing precise control over your brain, starts with learning to control each individual variable, each sub modalities of your thinking while holding the others constant – thereby helping you develop greater precision over the elements of your brain.

The variables of our mental processes boil down to five representational systems, visual, auditory, kinaesthetic, gustatory, olfactory.

The three major representational systems we think in are Visual, Auditory, and Kinesthetic. For example, we imagine scenarios playing out in our mind (visual), we hear internal dialogue playing in our mind (auditory), and we feel certain feelings, for example, anxiety, butterflies in stomach before big events (kinesthetic). Now its not you are a “visual” or “auditory” person, these are just the representational systems that our brain uses to inform our conscious mind of what we’re thinking. They are the form & structure of our thoughts.

We use all three representational systems all the time, although we each have a tendency to use one particular system more than others, this is your dominant representational system.

Now each representation system will have certain properties. Visual thoughts, will have variables like size, shape, location, distance, brightness, associated (looking through your own eyes) /dissociated (looking at yourself), colour/black & white etc.

For auditory processes, the variables, will be volume, tempo, pitch, rhythm, location, among others. Kinesthetic processes, will have a particular location, speed, size, pressure, temperature. These are the variables of your thinking.

Like a mathematical equation, the sequencing and combination of the variables will lead to a different mental formula, and its PRODUCT -> ACTION. By developing precise control over each variable and then starting to combining different variables together, you will begin to find the best combinations for motivating yourself, making decisions, goal-setting, and creativity. This is where the fun of experimenting and pimping out your brain begins, and optimizing other people’s brain as a brain specialist. Manipulating and developing precise control of these variables in their mind are what geniuses like Tesla and Einstein did naturally, and are in fact highly learnable skills.


Let me give you an example for Practice:

BRAIN EXERCISE

Think of an absolutely wonderful memory with a good feeling associated with it OR think of something your really, really want – like that Brain, that Body, that Life you Desire! Its time for you to step inside that optimized you.

As you think of the memory or what you desire, you’ll get a feeling that you will feel is the strongest in a particular part of your body. This constitutes the location of the feeling. In addition to location this feeling will have many properties to it like, movement, spin, speed, pressure, temperature, soft/hard. How does the feeling move in your body? Does it move up, down, clockwise/counterclockwise through your body?  How about pressure, is it a strong, intense feeling or a light feeling? 

Now hold all the other variables constant, and move the feeling forward in your body just a little bit, does that feel better or worse? Then bring it back.

Learn to control each component one by one, by changing one component at a time while holding all the other variables constant. For example, as per above, change the location of the feeling, move it up, move it down, move it forwards and backwards, and see which location you like best. As you experiment, certain directions and locations will feel better than others, and in doing so, you’re learning about how your brain works, and what makes it work best. Precise practice will lead to precise control. 

Now lets work on the VISUAL. Think of that wonderful memory, pull it up in your mind and see it now. Notice is it a slide (a still picture) or a movie – a series of slides playing out? Can you turn the picture into a movie? Can you hold the movie still at the most wonderful moment? 

Next, hold everything else constant and start to control the size of the happy memory. Make it smaller, than make it bigger, and continue until its panoramic and its beaming down on you.

The more you deliberately activate those neurocortical pathways in your brain, the stronger they become and more easily you can access and control them. Practice does make perfect in the brain.


In summary, your BEHAVIOUR, which is the result of what you think and feel, is the product of Brain Mathematics. While the mathematics are complex and we aren’t always aware of all the variables that are working in our mind, the process for developing conscious control over your brain is simple. With highly focused concentration you can both extend the range of each specific variable and expand the range of variables in your mind, in which you think. 

Ultimately, the Output of your BRAIN’S MATHEMATICS are YOUR ACTIONS – what you actually do. Thereby the greatest test of the effectiveness of your brain function, is how you’re performing in your personal and professional life.

Are you highly motivated? Are you feeling purposeful, passionate, happy? Are you executing your dreams? Are you getting things done exquisitely and efficiently or are things long and laborious? 

To get more motivated, I recommend your paint a new picture on top of that happy memory, a picture of the OPTIMIZED YOU that you want to become. See yourself acting, being and doing all the things you want to be able to do. Be as precise and make it as detailed as possible. Keep adjusting the picture/movie, the size, the location, the focus, until it becomes something you DESIRE and are pulled towards.

As you can see the variables of our consciousness, how we think and the activities of our brain, can be represented with mathematical equations. By identifying these variables and understanding how our brain works, we can extend the range of each of the variables in our mind (adding new dimensions to our thinking – moving from 2D visual to 3D visual to 4D), as well as extending the range of the variables we think in, to generate more possibilities for our life, behaviour and consciousness,  while simultaneously building a better, faster, more efficient, more expanded BRAIN – NEURO-PLASTICITY AT ITS FINEST.

Soon with math and science, we will be able to generate equations that represent the brain, consciousness and the universe, which enable us to better understand, predict and act in the universe. The ability to predict and go into the future is what our brains are designed to do.

And now you know that your brain is a powerful filter, by strengthening the filtering capacities of your brain, you can start to program yourself to be happier, more focused, more motivated and more oriented towards success than you’ve ever been before. 

Ohhh don’t isn’t the power of neuroplasticity just magical?

THE BRAIN BUSTING EFFECTS OF EMOTIONAL & RELATIONSHIP STRESS EXPOSED

We all know that stress is bad for our health, but do you have any idea of how damaging emotional & relationship stress is to your brain? Can you imagine what years upon years of intensifying emotional stress does to the mechanics and chemistry of your brain? 

In a court of law its easier to prove physical abuse thats blatant, but may emotional and social abuse eat away at your brain in a more insidious manner over time and thus constitute a more severe form of abuse? This is in fact what I’m seeing in my private practice, doing full Brain Imaging. 

In this article I share the story and results of Brenda, a client of mine, to raise awareness of the damaging effects of emotional stress in relationships, marriage, and in the workplace, and empower women both in personal and professional settings to say “NO!” to abuse, and take control of their brain. If you are a women reading this, the results are indisputable, and I highly suggest you implement the recommended Neuroplasticity Dopamine Boosting strategies outlined in this article below, for improving hormone, energy, vitality and fertility levels, brain health and function, cognition and creativity and protecting against Alzheimer’s and Neuro-degeneration. Protect it or lose it!

I have worked with Brenda for over a year, and this last QEEG Brain Mapping of her brain shows just how serious emotional stress is and that it’s equally if not more severe than physical stress and abuse.

This article will dive deep and give you the fundamental teachings of stress affects your brain mechanically and neurochemically, and thus your cognitive and mental abilities and physical ability. Before I give you all these details, which teachers, parents, lawyers should know, here are just a sneak preview of the ways Emotional Stress from relationships damages your brain: 


BRAIN BUSTING EFFECTS OF EMOTIONAL STRESS

  1. Literally “SHUTS OFF” certain aspects of your brains functioning, increasing the latent inhibition, as protection mechanism, to the point where your brain literally SHUTS OFF memory, hearing, vision, and cuts you off from your nervous system. Brenda has had to wear a hearing aid, and practically lost her hearing and memory from this relationshipLOOK AT THE EXTREME BLUE IN THE AUDITORY CORTEX across Delta, Theta, Alpha – these are the slower way frequencies that the auditory cortex & limbic system are designed to resonate at.
  2. Stress rapidly DEPLETES VITAL NEUROTRANSMITTERS like Dopamine, Acetyl-Choline & Catecholamines which fuel focus, memory & higher cognition.  Also, DESTROYS MYELIN and “WHITE MATTER” leading to significant signalling issues. SEE BLUE LINES – HYPO-COHERENCE – means Brenda’s brain is not, “firing and wiring” together and is disconnected.
  3. Stress causes a TSUNAMI of HYPER-ACTIVATION of the Auditory Cortex and Limbic System, associated with mass cortisol and inflammatory cytokine release, which directly damages the Hippocampus, the major memory hub of your brain, and DECREASES NEUROGENESIS significantly (HUGE!!!). This Hyper-Inflammatory Response is precisely what we see on Brenda’s Brain Map. This also corresponds to external sense which have shut off, but her Mind and Auditory Internal Dialogue literally “SCREAMING AT HER!”, similar to what most people who are depressed experience. 
  4. Emotional Stress DESTORYS THYROID FUNCTION, HORMONE LEVELS & LEADS TO WEIGHT GAIN, BRAIN FOG & LETHARGY. Brenda’s thyroid and fat-burning ability have all been compromised. Inflammatory cytokines, produced by the liver directly shut off your thyroid and convert active T3 to inactive Reverse T3. The thyroid is the gas pedal that allows you to drive your FERRARI BRAIN.

As you can see emotional stress is in fact physical. It physically damages the victims brain. But take a look at the Post QEEG Brain Map on the right and see how rapidly and powerfully Brenda’s brain balanced after just short session of Brain Training Work. Let me explain HOW …


I had Brenda come in for a Brain Mapping this past Tuesday. It’s been several months since I did intensive Brain work with her. Over the past few months Brenda’s been going through a difficult legal battle with her ex-husband, “a monster from hell it seems”, who does everything he can to control and trigger her – from sending nasty messages, to messing with the process and on and on and on. For Brenda, this has caused her brain function to get more imbalanced, be more in a state of hyper-activation and excito-toxicity, leading to major memory, hearing, and focus issues, and dulling her creativity, senses and enjoyment with life. Just as I’m doing with Brenda, you need to protect yourself and re-wire your brain’s response from emotional stress too. See the increase in Red Hyperactivity in Beta and High Beta on the right QEEG Brain Map performed this Monday compared to the 2016 – particularly in the temporal lobes and auditory cortex where stress hits the hardest.

2017 BRENDA'S BRAIN - After More Stress

2017 BRENDA’S BRAIN – After More Stress

 


In relationships we become used to particular ways of feeling, being and responding – we become tolerant of and familiar with stress. The brain is designed to make things FAMILIAR. Stress quickly becomes a habit the more people around you NEGATIVELY train your brain! This begs the question, what relationships are draining you and eating away at your brain that you need to let go of? 

As you read this article, and learn about the effects of stress on your brain, ask yourself, what do I want to get out of this article? What information do I need for myself? And then how can I use this to create healthier relationships? When you learn with your purpose in mind, your brain will focus on finding the information you need – and your memory will work a lot better too! So no need to worry and ADD TO YOUR STRESS!!!

Whatever its to empower yourself in business relationships or stand in your power in a personal relationship, remember to use your brain and think on purpose and don’t let your response and how you think and feel be at the mercy of others. TAKE ACTION. Build up your brain in advance and inoculate yourself to stress. Strengthen your control over your brain. Here’s why:

Once our brain has experienced traumatic physical abuse it creates major defence mechanisms and unconscious blockages to protect us from accessing those experiences again. The memories are so emotionally potent that our brain immediate disassociates and blocks us from accessing it. The pain is too overwhelming and so our brain “turns it off”, with good reason (psychologists listen up!)

However, emotional and social stress, rather than being a “CANON BALL” like physical abuse, is like boiling a frog in hot water, slowly and progressively boiling the water hotter and hotter over-time. In fact, this over-heating increases the baseline sensitivity and activation of the alarm centres in the amygdala and auditory cortex, progressively causing smaller and smaller things to trigger emotional stress in you. More and more you begin to constantly “hear the abuser’s voice louder in your mind”, and “see their harmful actions clearer and clearer, and closer and closer” … which fries your nerves and leaves them chronically in a state of “HYPER-ACTIVATION”. In essence, the stress chemicals accumulate, and the brain never shuts off or calms down, as seen by major deficiencies in the slow-wave frequencies like Delta, Theta, and Alpha, on Brenda’s brain. Over-time this destroys sleep, memory, relaxation, spatial abilities, focus and sensory acuity, and drains the brain because the brain needs to drop down into these slower frequencies to regenerate proteins and neurotransmitters. Moreover, in order to get deep sleep and regeneration, which facilitates growth hormone release, anti-aging, fat burning, and autophagy we need slow delta brainwave sleep. For efficient memory consolidation, and organization of neuro-cortical pathways, our brain needs to drop down into “theta dominant states” between 4-8Hz.

Information encoding and memory consolidation occur at different frequencies, in different networks in the brain and when the brain is operating at different speeds.


 HOW YOUR BRAIN WORKS 101 – ENCODING & MEMORY 

The brain needs sufficient excitatory neuro-chemical firing, specifically glutamate to stimulate long-term potentiation and new learning. Too slow, low voltage, Blue Brain (seen on QEEG) frequently is diagnosed as ADD. When processing information, the brain adds tons of information “to the cloud computer of our brain” and then later on will slow down into slower wave states in which, the bits of information in your brains cloud computing system, are systematized and organized into memory, which occurs in states of Alpha and Theta. The emotional and memory centres are designed to resonate between 6-9HZ when functioning optimally.

In a state of hyper activation, Beta and High Beta, the state in which Brenda’s brain is living, she’s constantly “ON” high speed receiving information, but her brain isn’t going into the right states where that information can be coherently organized into memory. Thus things mentally for her seem cloudy and new information, new people, new faces, and conversations don’t seem to stick. 


Brenda, remarked to me that her creativity has been “dulled” and she’s been having issues finding her passion, her drive and her direction for herself personally and with her business. Specifically, Alpha brainwave levels correspond to how synchronized and balanced mechanically and energetically our brain is. When our brain is producing ample ALPHA, we feel, “in the zone”, “on our game”, “in the flow”, “energized and on point” since in Alpha synchronizes our CONSCIOUS and UNCONSCIOUS MIND. I train people’s brain to be “in the zone”, relaxed and focused across all areas of their life. All the neuro-chemicals, and “nootropics”, like Dopamine exist in your brain, you just have to learn how to consciously “TAP” the compound pharmacy and mix your own cocktails in your brain – SEE DOPAMINE BOOSTERS BELOW.

When your brain’s ALPHA brainwave output is high, your conscious and unconscious fully align, and this is when you feel, “balanced”and all parts of your brain feel like they’re moving in the same direction. With deficiencies in Alpha, often it will seem like there are ropes pulling you in different directions and one part of your brain will be battling with another, leading to “stuckness”, “frustration”, “feeling disconnected”, “off purpose” and your brain running in all kinds of loops. Sound familiar? 

As seen on hundreds of Brain Maps, Brenda’s an example, emotional stress, de-synchronizes the brain, decreasing your memory, creativity, ability to visualize, and feel connected and associated with what you are doing (all of which require lots of ALPHA brainwave activity). Stress can also cause your brain to dissociate you from your experience, and so you’ll be going through the motions, but “not be present” and start to forget things, like “what you were doing did 10 minutes ago”, or “why you’re in a certain room of your house”as Brenda has remarked. Another consequence is you’ll feel un-motivated and lose your sense of pleasure and enjoyment of activities since you’re not “IN THEM”, experiencing them directly. Stress cuts you off from your nervous system. This response is appropriate in particular areas, such as dissociating us from harmful memories of abuse or trauma to protect us, but the brain has a tendency to generalize this protection mechanism, and so the more stress you face the more you become dissociated from all aspects of your life. The result is motivation, memory and enjoyment of life all suffer.

GENIUS & INTUITION ALERT:

Your brain has BASELINE level of INHIBITION, to prevent sensory and information overload. Geniuses and highly creative individuals naturally have a very low level of inhibition, and in fact, many geniuses have, like Tesla had, such a low level of inhibition that the overload of sensory input can drive you crazy. However, unlike Tesla, most people have overly inhibited brains as a result of excessive stress, work demands and information overload with technology, social media etc. Stress inhibits the brain, which for a highly spiritual, intuitive person like Brenda, has cut her off from her full creative, intuitive abilities. Thus dis-inhibiting her brain is key to heightening her spiritual and intuitive abilities, creativity and ability to “Tune In”. As emotional stress amplifies over the course of an abusive relationship, the brain raises its set-point level of inhibition, as a protection mechanism. In Brenda’s case, her brain turned up the inhibition to the point where her brain turned her hearing off, and she recalls telling her ex during their relationship that she, “couldn’t hear him anymore externally …” which is true. Her brain has blocked off the auditory sensory input, which you may have experienced where the abuser is a yeller, screamer, and authoritarian. Unfortunately the abuser may take this “inability to hear” to abuse the victim even more. For the lawyers, the evidence is in the Brain Map, look at the excitatory activity in the temporal lobes of Brenda’s brain in High Beta.

SEX SABOTAGE

Stress decreases the sensitivity of your senses and your precision over them. This can specifically decrease our kinaesthetic feeling and connection with our body, “dulling” the feeling and inhibit orgasms during sex.

Stress shuts off the brain in particular ways and in others turns it on so loud its screaming!

TSUNAMI THOUGHTS OF STRESS – THAT NEVER STOP!

Holy Stress Response

Holy Stress Response

As you can see by the major spike in Brainwave Amplitude across the auditory cortex and frontal lobes, at 34 seconds, this huge stress response in the brain was generated by “just the single thought of her Ex”, igniting an ENTIRE TSUNAMI of Cortisol, Adrenaline and Stress Chemicals in the brainOver time, with your brain bathed with cortisol, the chronic elevation causes hormones to flatline, quickly bringing adrenal fatigue, lethargy, tiredness and thyroid issues. The problem is the WAVE Stress Response doesn’t stop, as we see with Brenda. This swiftly “fries” and destroys brain cell membranes. This is evidenced by the “wiring” and “connectivity issues” in Brenda’s brain represented by the blue lines, which identify “hypo-coherence”, or poor connection. This means that the brain regions are active and talking but are not in sync and firing in unison. The wiring issues are between critical networks which connect Prefrontal Cortex executive centres which control executive function, language, decision-making, and auditory cortex regions which play a role in speech and language reception and memory. As a result, Brenda has experienced, language issues, clearly expressing herself and getting the words clearly out of her brain. Not to mention to poor wiring issues between, occipital lobes which modulate visual input, with frontal lobe regions which impact our cognition, resulting in a poor ability to visualize, imagine and see clearly plans and ideas for the future. Thus if you’re a COACH, working with a client like Brenda can be frustrating, when you don’t know that her brain regions aren’t firing properly to perform the tasks at hand. THE RESULT: There will be major difficulties with motivation and goal-setting, since a brain that is stressed, and “inhibited” will be unlikely to venture into an unknown future that can’t be seen clearly.

THE GOLDEN ROOM DARKENED – Emotions are intimately intertwined with memory. In fact, emotions are the fabric of memory. Our limbic system, our mid-brain processes both emotions and memory. Over time, constant emotional stress leads to chronic elevation of cortisol, which leads to damaging excess excitatory activation of temporal lobes and specifically, the memory centre, the hippocampus. This leads to a phenomenon where clients will hear, “Screaming Internal voices in their head”. 

Foggy Brain – Stress also leads to a rapid depletion in neurotransmitters such as Acetyl-Choline and Dopamine, which is evidenced by the poor connectivity and coherence in the brain, and significant phase lag (brain lag – meaning very slow neural signalling speed just like a computer that lags).

The Stress Dis-Connect – Stress damages the “White Matter” and myelin sheaths which conduct nerve signals and insult nerves. As a result, signalling issues in the nervous system develop, such as poor balance, poor sensorimotor function, degeneration of hearing, extreme sensitivity to environmental stressors and energies, and very poor procedural memory. 

Fat, Tired, Weak – Emotional stress leads to chronically elevated inflammatory cytokines and chemicals produced by the liver, which shut down the thyroid (convert T3 into reverse T3), and thus lead to weight issues, brain fog, energy issues, poor focus, memory and cognition. 

THE HOW – YOUR BRAIN PROTECTION PLAN 

You’ve seen and heard the BAD SIDE of Stress, well here’s the GOOD OF THE SIDE!!!

Your brain is a remarkably plastic, constantly changing dynamic organ! The science of neuroplasticity shows how powerfully and quickly the Brain responds and re-wires in response to Brain Training.

Specifically for Brenda, I am SOOO excited because I’ve never seen a brain that shifts and responds so powerfully to “How she is Thinking”With a little Neurolinguistic Programming, some Trance work, and Neuroplasticity Exercises, I’ll train her to develop conscious control over her brain and unconscious processes in no time. This is evidenced by the major Brain Voltage and Power changes in her Brainwaves by having her shift what she was thinking. For example, Brenda called in her Spirit guides, and thought of powerful, joyful energy and her brain immediately responded – now my job is to teach her how to consciously control her brainwaves across all states of consciousnessand start to teach her how to take precise control over her, auditory, visual and kinaesthetic thinking in her brain. This is where the Neurolinguistic Programming and Neuroplasticity work comes in and what I love doing the most!  

Before I give you the STRESS BUSTING plan to follow, here is: 

THE NEUROBIOLOGY OF STRESS

Stress not only has a mental and emotional component it also has a significant neurobiological component. Stress depletes vital neurochemicals, and neuro-hormones like Dopamine.

So after seeing Brenda’s Brain Map, and figuring out the underlying neurochemical imbalances I designed and gave her a cocktail of Brain Nutrients and Nootropics to balance her neurochemistry – The result was her Brain completely balanced across the entire frequency spectrum within minutes.

IMG_0300

GLUTAMATE / GABA IMBALANCE

Stress increases glutamate release, the primary excitatory neurotransmitter, and progressively results in glutamate receptor hyper-sensitivity. This can result in tinnitus and ringing in the ears, chronically elevated “brain pain”, headaches, migraines, physical pain increased sensitivity to foods, excito-toxins like additives, colourings in food (eating out can be dangerous!), and increased sensitivity to weather changes, EMF and changes in the environment. You become a sensitive canary! Not to mention internal dialogue becomes so revved up, “its like your mind is screaming at you …” and internal dialogue may be very unsettling. GABA, the brain’s primary inhibitory neurotransmitter is Glutamates’ antagonist. GABA inhibits neurons. In the brain faster is not better, like most speed, ritain and amphetamine junkies would like to believe. In the Brain BALANCE EQUALS BRILLIANCE. Your brain runs to fast, and speed doesn’t come out properly, information doesn’t stick. We need to proper space in between nerve cell firing, just like we need the proper space and breathing in between speech (autism alert!). This is achieved by balancing glutamate and GABA levels.Stress fries the brain and rapidly depletes acetylcholine. The result is you can quickly become a worry wort and worry about everything! And boy do I see that in my practice! People who run scenarios in the mind all day worrying about dying, germs, facing their boss, you name it! 

ACETYL-CHOLINE – Your Brain Foggy & Slow? Feel like there’s a blanket on your brain?

Acetylcholine controls how fast neurons fire and thus brain speed, memory, motor function, boosts CREATIVE IQ, decreases worrying (those WORRY WARTS who are too busy worrying, they don’t live at!!!).

In the Parietal lobes, acetylcholine is released increasing alpha waves bringing us “in the zone” into relaxed focused states enhancing, information processing, analytical thinking, spatial reasoning, logical and mathematical thinking. Genius’ like Einstein had hyper-development in the Parietal lobes fuelling creative thinking, reasoning, intuitive abilities and imagination, all associated with high acetylcholine levels.

Acetyl Choline is also a building block for myelin, the fatty sheaths that insulate the nervous system and conduct electrical signals. More Myelin equals more insulation, greater capacity to hold and carry electric charge, and thus better communication in the brain and clearer thinking. When acetylcholine is depleted, “sparks begin to fly”, like an exposed T.V. wire, resulting in signalling issues, such as brain fog, motor issues and your mind going blank mid-conversation.

Lecithin and choline also help to metabolism fat, and are used in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease, high cholesterol levels and liver disorders. Since we can see with Brenda’s QEEG brain map and EEG recordings, stress does to hyper-activate the auditory cortex and hippocampus, deteriorating it, thus increasing risk of alzheimer’s.

Thus Brainpower Nutrition, Pasture Raised or Organic Egg Yolks, Wild Fish and Seafood, Grass-Fed Beef Liver, and green vegetables like Broccoli are critical because they are loaded with acetylcholine.

DOPAMINE – Get your Neurons Firing & Wiring Together

Finally, DOPAMINE. Dopamine is the perhaps the brain’s most important neurochemical. Dopamine enhances Brainpower, Mood, Motivation, Focus, “Pleasure and Reward”, Brain Voltage, Brain Speed and Cognitive Energy. It is the brain’s “gas pedal” neurotransmitter. When dopamine levels are high groups of neurons fire together at high speed – the brain clicks. When dopamine is released, neurons “fire and wire” together. Thus dopamine is critical to learning and forming new, strong neuro-cortical connections. Which for Brenda is mighty important.

When dopamine rises, your brain says “Save that One”. Dopamine increases pattern recognition and key to planning, forethought, focus, executive function, attention. Dopamine is responsible for your Mental Bandwidth – your Brain’s RAM and Working Memory Power.

So how to re-build, re-wire and replenish your brain with all these vital neurochemicals? 

STRESS BUSTING DOPAMINE BOOSTING NEUROPLASTICITY PROTOCOL


 STRESS BUSTING, DOPAMINE BOOSTING NEUROPLASTICITY PROTOCOL

by The Game Changer 

  1. Movement – especially High Intensity Exercise (which someone who’s body is stressed should only be doing in short, intense bursts like 10 minutes of exercise in total until hormones are fixed), and fine motor movements like TAI CHI, QIGONG & Martial Arts
  2. Meditation – results in increased regeneration of frontal lobes, by increasing Alpha and Theta brainwaves, during which neurochemicals and catecholamine levels replenish
  3. SUNLIGHT – amino acid tyrosine, the precursor of Dopamine, is a light-activated molecule. Nothing raises dopamine and makes us feel better, “happier” and more joyful than the sunshine! Brenda was just in Hawaii! In any settlement packages, there definitely should be VACATION money to allow the victimized individual plenty of time to go to a tropical location for some healing and dopamine replenishment! You lawyers listen up!
  4. BRAINPOWER NUTRITION – Balanced Superfood Integrated Way of Eating combining:
  • Ample DHA & Iodine rich SEAFOOD, which is loaded with brain-specific nutrients such as zinc, iron, selenium, B12
  • TONIC HERBS & SUPERFOODS – Goji, Schizandra, Ginseng, Cordyceps and tonic herbs which modulate and adapt the immune system (speed or slow it up as needed! You don’t need to think about it, just consume them and the foods which are medicines will do the work!) Tonic herbs and superfoods are best consumed in BRAIN BEVERAGES which combine fats (to increase delivery and assimilation of brain nutrients across cell membranes), and superfoods (the medicinal foods) for a delicious, nutritious, satiating meal. WATCH THIS & MAKE THE LOVIN’ LIBIDO MOCHA!
  • GO GREEN – Ample Raw Vegetables & Juices – Anti-inflammatory high photonic power from the sun. Drink Sunshine. WATCH & MAKE ONE OF MY FAVOURITE ANTI-INFLAMMATORY JUICES HERE.

5. BRAIN TRAINING – Neurofeedback. Neurolinguistic Programming – optimizing the software programs of the mind. By expanding your mind’s capabilities with Neurolinguistic Programming you build new neuro-cortical pathways and stimulate neurogenesis.

*** All of these dopamine boosting strategies counteract the accelerated brain cell death and depletion in BDNF (brain derived nerve growth factor) caused by stress by increasing neurogenesis (brain cell growth).

*** ALZHEIMER’S ALERT One of the main reasons why emotional stress can contribute to Alzheimer’s and neurodegeneration is that it speeds the rate of brain cell death and slows the rate of brain cell growth, specifically in the memory hub, the hippocampus where neurogenesis occurs.


So for Brenda I gave her a cocktail that included Magnesium Threonate (a form of magnesium that acts on the cerebral spinal fluid) which enhances GABA production, Acetyl-Choline Boosters, including phosphatidylserine and CDP choline, as well as a few other nootropics, which within minutes completely balanced her BRAIN, raising DELTA, THETA and ALPHA brainwave production, while reducing the excitatory BETA and HIGH BETA activity.

For permanent change, I will be doing intensive Brain Training with Brenda, combining Neurotechnologies, Neurolinguistic Programming & Trance Work (to wire in the changes in both her conscious and unconscious and give her precise control over her brain & unconscious processes across different brain states), Brainpower Nutrition (to provide the raw materials to build up the brain & boost neurogenesis), and QIGONG & Tai Chi (to boost her Qi, hormones and stimulate neurogenesis). Stay tuned for the results of this full-out Neuroplasticity Brain Optimization Program.

I have only just begun to share with you the wide ranging effects of emotional stress on the brain, and while this article is rich brain-buzzing science and information there is so much more to learn and experience.

Now most get overwhelmed with science and information but thats only because they’ve forgotten to keep their purpose in mind. While reading and perhaps re-reading this article, ask yourself, What do I want to get out of this article? What information do I need for myself? 

See when you learn with your purpose in mind, your brain will focus on finding the information you need.

Whatever you’re purpose, remember to use your brain on purpose and never to let the actions of others eat away at your brain. TAKE ACTION. Build up and strengthen your brain. Inoculate yourself to stress. Strengthen your control over your brain. Train your brain to move towards the things you want, not away from those you fear.

Remember, its you’re brain, and how you build it, and how you use it is up to you! Make it the best brain and the best life you can!

BRENDA’s EXPERIENCE WORKING WITH THE BRAIN MAN, CHRIS WYLLIE 

“After spending 20 years in a highly toxic relationship, I came to Chris for17634355_10158562317770074_5318275926493972667_n help to bring myself back to a normal state of health. For years I tried everything to improve how I looked, felt and functioned, but to no avail. Even though I ate a healthy diet and exercised, I was exhausted all the time and suffered from asthma, food sensativies and brain fog. The problem was not what I was doing for myself but how I was being treated. Thanks to the work Chris and I have been doing together, I feel like I have come out of a coma and back into the world. The asthma is gone as well as most of the food sensativies and I feel energetic, vibrant and centred and with a strong sense of self worth that will never allow me to go back into another relationship like that one. After a particularly trying week (three months actually) with my ex, I felt myself slipping back into a scattered and tired state of being. Chris mapped what was going on and worked on my biochemistry: I feel like I have bounced back to better than ever. I feel this is because of the cellular memory of healthy higher states of functioning we have already worked to create within me. I don’t know where I would be right now without this technology. Much heart felt gratitude Chris!”

Stunning Simplicity of Laughing, Learning & Mastery

Ohhh the wisdom of Dr. Suess!!! This is definitely Game Changer Philosophy Material! This quote is so me – Smiley Wyllie (which I’ve been called by dear friends) always laughing, learning & loving!!!  What can I say, the brain is a learning machine and learns rapidly and easily when you work with it, not against it. Set your brain on fire and suddenly learning & taking on the boldest challenges life has to offer becomes a whole lot of fun! Yes, you can laugh and smile your way to success – which is way easier when you wake up those brain cells! In fact, smiling and being silly to achieve seriously stunning results is The Game Changer way. The truth is that the more complex and expansive your brainpower & consciousness becomes, the more you see the stunning simplicity and magic of life. Mastering your Mind, and taking your life to the next level is simple, especially when you see the simplicity while everyone else is caught up in complexity!

Why so serious??? If you’re like most you probably take life a little too seriously :). Being too serious is the number 1 dis-ease people suffer from, in addition to its brother hesitation, both of which are a product of the brain being constricted, narrowed, stressed, energy-deprived and cut off from its highest capacities.

You see if you take everything so seriously, everything will become serious. Or in better words, if you take your shit too serious, you’ll end up standing in some serious shit! How shitty!

When you “think too hard”, “try to hard”, get too “serious”, it narrows your mind and focus, preventing you from seeing options, thinking clearly and thinking creatively. Let me tell you, I know all about this – I gave myself anxiety & panic attacks to the point where I was hospitalized for goodness sake!


“You see when others are getting more and more serious and tense, it frees you to soak up the silliness and fly in the freedom. When everyone is dwelling in problems and negativity, the positivity & opportunity is right there for the taking. When everyone is looking in the same direction and seeing the same thing, it frees you to look in the opposite direction to see something new, something better and completely change the game.”


Everything in life is relative. There is good and bad in every experience. You get to choose whether you soak up the good or the bad, or what side of the telescope you look through. In fact, there is no such thing as “failure” everything is just FEEDBACKinformation that you can use to move to make better decisions and grow. Thats what life is about.

But its only when you’re relaxed, when you’re really silly, that the creative juices really flow, and the endorphins and neurotransmitters flood your brain, unlocking and unleashing profound neuro-flexibilty, creativity and imagination.

Brains are made for challenging. Your brain needs BIG, BOLD, BRILLIANT, BRIGHT Fantasy’s and Dreams to capture your imagination and ignite your passions and desires. Emotions are the fabric of memories. Your Limbic Brain, the seat of your emotions, memories, and experiences is the driver of all the unconscious thinking processes that are constantly shaping your behaviour. By setting your limbic brain on fire, and bringing your conscious mind (neocortex) in alignment with unconscious mind (limbic brain), suddenly your thoughts become of a higher quality – pure, powerful and in alignment with your hearts true desires. This is when mega manifestation occurs! 

Big, Bold, Juicy Dreams are precisely what set your Limbic Brain on Fire. Juicy fantasy’s ignite your highest creative capacities, flood your brain with the potent neuro-chemicals like Dopamine and Serotonin and unleash a tsunami of motivation, focus and creativity. Not only that, when your energy is high and your brainpower topped-up, you feel the competence and confidence to JUST GO FOR IT. How courageous you act is influenced by the cocktail of Brain Juices in your head. Juicy fantasy’s activate the full magic of your mind.

In fact it is the job of creators, artists, innovators and genius’ to bring fantasy to reality. Some of the most profound advances in science have been the product of “hallucinations” and fantasy’s. For example, Albert Einstein’s laboratory was his brain. He conducted thought experiments, “hallucinations” and discovered the theory of relativity by riding a beam of light in his mind. Your Brain is the treasure chest you have barely begun to explore.

Truth is reality is always changing. In fact, it is the job of a physicist to change reality. At it’s root, what is a choice?  A choice creates an alternate reality. There are many dimensions to the universe, and many different energies that you can tap into and manifest. Your mind, transcends, space and time – it’s infinite – you can start using it to see new perspectives, new opportunities and make better choices to create the reality you desire.

Your consciousness, your mind, is the ultimate organizing force in the universe. The foundation of progress is the mind’s ability to imagine, see, create and organize. Consciousness is what organizes chaos. If you’re overwhelmed with stress, or if you’re body is breaking down with a disease, Autoimmunity, Cancer, or a Neurological Condition, or Mental Illness like Anxiety, Depression – the chaos is overwhelming your brain. How can you reduce the chaos and restore order? It all starts by thinking differently.

So are you going to captain the ship and direct your brain or will you continue to let your brain be directed and controlled in whatever direction the winds are blowing? Most let their brains just flip flop like a fish to whatever the situation is triggering. Of course, if you want to re-direct your life in a new direction, you need to get in the game, and start focusing your brain actively. And when you change how you think, it changes how you feel, and so changes what you can see and do.

Remember when everyone is looking in one direction it frees you to look in the other to see something different, see a new light, a new path, a new life.

Whether it’s the depressive who looks at one side of the telescope and only associates with the negative memories from the past, or the person with Anxiety & Panic attacks who takes everything too seriously & scares the crap out of themselves … its only by changing FOCUS, and re-directing your consciousness, that you can begin to move to better behaviours.

Truth is your brain works perfectly. If you’re a worry wart, your brain has mastered worrying. If you have anxiety and panic you’re brain has mastered that. Perhaps it’s time to flip the switch and start trying some non-sensical things – like mastering feeling really good and being really happy? Perhaps its time to be a little silly, to turn on the happy buttons and start using those happy feelings to change your perspective and nourish your neurons.

“But ohhh don’t be so ridiculous, Chris!” 

Just look at children. Children are little balls of curiosity, laughter and play – they’re also super-learning machines. Even if you’ve closed yourself off, your inner super-learner is still there, waiting to be opened back up. Your brain never stops learning. Its just that you may have let your brain be learning more and more garbage, which is just hardwiring more and more of those unwanted thoughts, behaviours and crappy feelings.

The brain loves whats familiar, but learns through difference. In fact, it’s through difference, constant eye movements, that you can see. Likewise, you learn and acquire skill by detecting differences and making distinctions. You learn by trying things at the opposite ends of the spectrum to explore what works best. Difference is what makes the difference.

Happiness is a habit. Energy is neither created nor destroyed. All the energies and memories from your past remain with you, and what you’re thinking and how you feel is a product of the dominant neurological and energetic pattern being activated and functioning right now. Stuck in the past, or don’t feel the way you want? Change your brain’s dominant patterns of functioning so that situations trigger new patterns, new responses, not old ones. Train your brain. Build new neural patterns. Take control!

“And so I hope for your health and happiness, that you can begin to see the brilliant in the non-sense, the genius in the giggling, the smarts in the smiling, and begin to look in the opposite direction as everyone else. When you do you’ll see new things, acquire new perspectives and make new insights that completely change the game. Yes, you can laugh and smile your way to seriously stunning success. “Just watch me”. That’s what I would say ;)”

SUPER-BRAIN. The First Step to Optimizing Your Brain.

Have you been battling mental, emotional, and neurological problems, such as Anxiety, Depression, a Mood Disorder, Memory, Focus, Executive Function issues or more extreme brain degeneration like Concussion, Dementia, Alzheimer’s or Chemo-Brain? Is your Brain Foggy, Slow & Sluggish??? If so you’ve probably spent tons of time, effort and money searching for answers as to what the underlying causes are in the brain. You may even be thinking, “Geezzzz, wouldn’t someone tell me what the heck is actually going on in my brain for goodness sake???” If you knew what was going on in your brain it would be a whole lot easier to change it, right???  Right now you may feel like you’ve tried “everything”, but yet you’re still stuck. Of course you haven’t tried everything, there is always something better, especially when you change the game, and upgrade your approach.

If you’re like most you may have gotten, some or no benefit, from conventional approaches, perhaps a particular diet, or nutrition program has helped some, but still you’re hungry for much much more – far more powerful, lasting results. You may now be at the stage where, “Enough is Enough!!!” and you’re willing to do whatever it takes to Transform your Brain and Health.” If so, congratulations!!! You have one incredibly exciting journey ahead! Transforming your brain will open up a world of new possibilities for your mind, your health, your life.

But what is the first step to optimizing your brain? What is THE ONE MOST CRITICAL FACTOR to most effectively re-wiring your brain and, in the broader scheme of things, what is the most critical factor to becoming a Super-Learner & taking yourself to the next level in your discipline, sport or business? 

Science is always moving to new and better ways of understanding the world, and thus so should you be moving to new and better ways of protecting & optimizing your brain. Remember inventors like Thomas Edison failed thousands of times before he found that right combination that turned on the lights!!! Turn on the lights in your brain! YES!!! Everything you’ve tried up until now, the time, the effort, the money, the failures and things that have worked and those that haven’t, have simply been FEEDBACK, feedback that has led you to this moment to discover and do something new, something better, something more systematic and complete to fundamentally re-wire your brain. Total Brain Transformation, that is what The Game Changer Brain & Beyond Neuroplasticity is designed to do. That is what I’m about, Total Transformation. But what’s the first step to changing your brain?


 The first step, the first key to unlocking and unleashing your brain is FEEDBACK. What’s actually going on in your brain??? You’ve got to find out what’s actually going on in your brain. How can you know unless your look? It’s time to stop guessing, and relying on what people believe, thats a dangerous game that costs money, time, your health & your life. The Solution is simple. See for yourself what the evidence shows is going on in your Brain. Get a picture of your Brain and go from there. Advances in technology now allow you to find out what’s actually going on in your brain – not for $10,000+ as typically charged in the U.S. but for only a few hundred dollars. A few hundred dollars for a complete, clear picture of your Brain. A picture says a thousand words right? Stop guessing and start guiding yourself to results by Mapping your Brain. 


Feedback is the key to success, to rapid results, to finding what will work best for you. Feedback on how your brain is really functioning and your brain’s state of health is critical. You see, your brain is involved in everything you do, your nervous system’s functioning and state of health, radically alters your thoughts, feelings, emotions and behaviours. Feelings don’t just come from no where, they are mediated by your enteric nervous system, which connect hollow and solid organs and are linked to your neocortex and thus your mind. When your brain is imbalanced, your mind and behaviour is imbalanced. You feel off”, “You’re off your Game”, “Off balance and stressed”. What people describe is literally happening in their brain. Listen to yourself. Do you find yourself saying, “I wish I had more time?”  If so, timing is off in your brain and your brain is running slow – it’s lagging“Things are a mess right now, I’m overwhelmed?” If so, then things are a mess in your brain, and the chaos, disorder, de-coherence and imbalances may have brought you to a place of stress and overwhelm.

Quite simply, when your brain is slow, sluggish, tired, rigid, your mind and body are slow, sluggish, and rigid, and STRESS accumulates big time. Eventually you’ll break-down unless you change your brain. Also, when your Brain loses its JUICE you lose your enthusiasm, mood and motivation. “Feeling Dull? Does the world seem dim?” If so, the voltage and electricity in your brain is dimmed and reduced. TURN UP THE LIGHTS IN YOUR BRAIN & LIGHT UP YOUR LIFE!!! 

In our society we are so quickly labeled and diagnosed with particular conditions at the slightest opportunity. Not only that, we are constantly attaching labels onto ourselves. However the Truth is, how can you truly know what’s going on in your brain unless you look??? You get up every morning and check yourself out in the mirror – fix your hair, do your make up etc. However, you can’t just look in a mirror and check out your brain to see how its doing. You need to get an image of your brain to see what it’s doing, see what’s actually going on between those two ears, not what someone just “tells” you. You need clear, visible, quantifiable evidence of where and what the problems may be in your brain, and thus know what to do to fix them. Seems to make sense right?

So, would you like to finally see a conclusive picture of what’s actually going on in your brain? 


“Measuring and Quantifying the Brain is the key to Optimizing the brain.”

This is True for both:

1. Peak Performance – Maximize Learning Abilities, Memory, Cognitive & Athletic Performance, Speaking, Creativity & Innovation.

2. Transforming Neurological Conditions & Learning Disorders


Here is a video in which i use QEEG Brain Mapping to show the changes in my brain function over the course of executing my own personal Neuroplasticity Brain Optimization Game Plan, which included Neurofeedback, Neuroplasticity Brain Training Exercises, Qigong/Tai Chi, Brainpower Nutrition and some other brain-enhancing modalities.

Each person’s brain is unique, and so the approach to balancing and optimizing the brain is unique for each person. Quantification and Tracking Results, getting FEEDBACK, is the key to see if what you are doing is working – everything should be Results Driven. When you start Focusing on Results, and start doing more and more of what works, and stop doing what doesn’t, you start accelerating to success, FAST. 

Jumping into Drugs, Nutraceuticals, and Interventions before knowing where your Brain is at, is like trying to drive your car across the country, without having any idea of where you’re starting from. Having no idea of where you’re at how do you know which direction to drive? Do you drive East or do you drive West to get to the same destination?

We all want to get to the same destination – Energized, Focused, Balanced Peak Cognition – so that all our talents and abilities flow. However, the path that you need to drive to get there is completely dependent on where you’re starting from! You need to see where you’re brain is starting from. This is why you must get an image of your Brain, such as a QEEG Brain Map.

Did you know that there are up to 6 different types of ADD/ADHD patterns in the brain if not more? Did you know that each form of ADD/ADHD, has different brain-wave patterns, different levels of brain voltage and different connectivity issues between brain regions? 

You may have a low voltage brain, a Blue Brain, as seen on a QEEG Brain Map, which is completely different than a Hyper-Active Brain with Hyper-Connectivity between some brain regions and disconnection between others – but both would be diagnosed as ADD. But obviously since the brain imbalances are completely different, the approaches should be different. A “one-size fits all” is harmful and doesn’t work, considering how diverse the brain’s are of individuals with the same conditions really are.

Why is Autism called a Spectrum disorder? Because the altered neurological development varies across an entire diverse spectrum, all depending on the different mix of factors that have altered the brain, which affect each individual brain in a unique way.

Not only is Brain Mapping and Brain Imaging critical to healing and re-wiring the brain, Quantification and Measurement is critical to Optimization & Peak Performance in sports, in school, in business.

Many Brilliant kids and students in education are blocked and prevented from fully expressing their abilities due to little bottlenecks in their brain. You can be the most brilliant person in the world, but if in high-stress situations your Brain locks up & Anxiety networks run wild all your higher cognitive abilities will be high-jacked. I know, it happened to me my entire life !!! Many of my clients are high school students, who are absolute geniuses, but suffer from the same things I did – Anxiety, Tension and Panic – all of which severely hold them back, limit full expression of their cognitive & intellectual abilities. This is especially true of brilliant kids on the Spectrum. I work with kids who are remarkably talented in math, science and have incredible abilities to learn, but in social situations, such as interacting with other children, and high pressure situations, big tests, they completely freeze up.

On QEEG Brain Maps, we can see which specific networks of the brain, such as the anxiety networks, negativity and fear centres, are over-activated. And so we can train, and re-wire the brain, specifically those networks, to move from frozen in fear, to completely LETTING GO and LETTING FLOW, anxiety vaporize, creativity optimized. Knowing the precise hiccups in a person’s brain allows for far greater precision and faster results with brain training. The brain map facilities much greater precision in terms of the Mind Mastery techniques like Mental Qigong Practices, NLP, Hypnosis, Super-Learning Strategies and other Neuroplasticity Exercises and the Entire Brain & Beyond Neuroplasticity Protocol that is recommended for a client.

Thinking of Peak Performance in Sports and Athletics, what’s the difference between a talented Athlete and an Olympic Athlete? The Brain is the difference that makes the difference. How fast can your neurology fire? how electric is your energy? How fast can you activate your body and move at lightening speed? How silent, still & thus thunderously powerful is your mind? How powerful is your ability to visualize, see, and create neurological patterns in your brain that re-wire and enhance performance? Differences in these Neurological Abilities are The Difference that makes THE DIFFERENCE. Your Brain is THE GAME CHANGER.  

All the magical abilities, such as SUPER-PERFORMANCE STATES, time distortion, pain control, resilience and relentless persistence are all mediated and controlled by your Brain.

QEEG BRAIN MAPPING

Quantify & Image your Brain Now. The Brain Mapping provides a complete picture of your brain like a map of the world, revealing the functioning of each individual brain region across the entire frequency spectrum. The Brain Mapping also reveals the functioning of deeper brain networks, like memory and emotional networks, executive function networks, sleep networks, pain and pleasure networks. The Brain Map specifically shows:

  1. The speed of communication between brain regions
  2. How “connected” brain regions are. Ex: Poor connection across executive function networks in the frontal lobes will result in Brain Fog, ADD, In-decision, Procrastination etc.
  3. Your Dominant Frequency – what your brain’s idling speed is. Thus showing predispositions to anxiety, hyper-activity on the one hand, or tendencies towards ADD, brain fog, lethargy, suppressed mood, motivation on the other.
  4. Complete Comparison of your Brain matched up against normative database of people of same, age, sex, and personal characteristics – showing how you compare to the norm.
  5. Identify the functioning of each brain region across the entire spectrum – for example, showing the function of every brain region across BETA – a frequency associated with vigilance, attention and information processing. In cases of ADD and Focus Issues, the frontal lobes actually shut down, are under-active in beta, when a person tries to focus. So, this is why you or your kids may have such difficulty working and learning – the harder you try, the more your brain shuts down and fails you. You need to re-wire your brain and get those frontal lobes working right!!! It starts with the Brain Mapping. Map your Brain. 

Now that you have an idea of what the brain mapping will show and reveal …

Here is the Full Brain Mapping Process.

1. Come in for Full Initial Baseline Brain Map

Notable Details.

A. Ideally no neurologically active drugs should be consumed before-hand unless necessary.

B. Have a small, to moderate breakfast – protein (eggs), fat (coconut oil), and perhaps some berries. Nothing too heavy. Drink lot’s of water beforehand

C. Be prepared for a bad-hair day! A QEEG Cap, with gel will be used to get a good connection on the scalp to measure actual brain activity not your hair! Powder room, brush and hair-dryer is provided for the ladies and gentleman if desired!

2. Full Video & Audio Recorded Analysis, Interpretation of the Entire Brain Mapping Session – clients are provided these full recordings at the conclusion of the session.

3. INTERVENTION – depending on the brain mapping, we’ll do some form of intervention to improve your brain right away, to get immediate feedback to see how your brain responds to specific treatments/protocols which are recommended based on your brain map.

The Intervention may be one or more of:

  1. Neurofield or Neurofeedback Brain Training Session – personally tailored to balancing your brain.
  2. SUPER-BRAIN BEVERAGE – High Octane Brain Fuel consisting of Superfoods, Tonic Herbs, High Octane fats for the Brain.
  3. Specific cocktail of nutraceuticals and supplements for your brain.
  4. Hypnosis, NLP, Mind Mastery Meditation Session with The Game Changer or other Master Brain Trainers.
  5. Set of Qigong / Tai Chi Exercises.

Plus many other endless array of combinations and interventions with the treatments and practices we do at The Game Changer.

4. Post-Baseline Brain Map and Full-Analysis to see how your Brain responds to Intervention/Treatment.

This is the essence science. You have a set of data, the initial brain map, from which you form a hypothesis, having a good grasp on whats going on in your brain, and then design some intervention to immediately test the hypothesis, and see the results that you get.  And so as part of this Complete Brain Optimization Brain Mapping Experience, not only do you get a complete Image & Analysis of your brain, you also get to learn and see how your brain responds to treatment, receiving valuable feedback. You can even bring whatever medications, supplements or nutraceuticals you’ve been taking or have been told to take, and we can test to see whether they are helping or hurting your brain.

As you can see, The Brain Mapping is a major piece of the Game Changer Full NEURO-ASSESSMENT, which altogether provides a panoramic picture of where your brain and health is at right now.

Super-Memory 1: How I Became a Genius & You Can Too.

How does the Brain really work? 

How does Consciousness and Intelligence truly occur? 

How can we become a Super-Learner and develop Super-Memory? 

Have you ever wondered what makes Human Consciousness different than the Consciousness of other Mammals, Animals and Beings? 

In this blog post, I reveal how the brain works and how Human Consciousness arises. Most importantly, after learning about the brain’s two primary roles, I will show you the process of how to leverage  your brain to become a Genius.

When I say genius, I want you to know that we are all geniuses, it’s just that we all don’t know how to discover and activate our genius. Most think that genius just suddenly occurs, you’re born with it. Most would say that genius is just a perfectly wrapped gift that a very few just luck out to receive. Nothing could be further from the truth. There is a fundamental, repeatable process to becoming a genius. I’ve discovered it and used it to get to where I am today. I’m going to share with you this MasterMind process so that you can do the same.

Remember when you were a kid you used to say, if you can do it, I can do it better.”  You should go back to that state of power. That saying is 100% true. I’m going to show you how …

Working one-on-one with hundreds of people at both ends of the spectrum, those with extremely high-performing brains and those with diseased brains, I’ve learned that the brain is the critical hub to transforming your life. However, the brain is much more than the sum of its parts. Consciousness and intelligence are emergent phenomena meaning that they are more than just the sum of the activity your brain. From the brain to consciousness it’s like 1+1 = 3. In addition, intelligence and consciousness aren’t even localized just in the brain. Rather consciousness arises from the energies and frequencies at which your entire being is resonating  – brain, body and life energy. All life works by quantum leaps and emergent phenomena. What “emergence” means is that you can’t predict the emergent result based on the individual parts of a system.

In my neuroscience studies in university, I learned the localizationist theories, basically that the brain can be segmented into different parts and these different parts control different cognitive and body functions. In these classes I learned how the left brain is analytical, linear, logical and sequential, while the right brain is spontaneous, non-linear, imaginative and action-oriented. I learned that the frontal lobes control executive function, our ability to focus, regulate our behaviour and our mood and motivation. I learned that the temporal lobes control memory, emotional stability and are the wings of creativity. I learned that the parietal lobes control sensory and motor function. Finally I learned that the occipital lobes control sight, vigilance and play a role in sleep. However, based on how we know nature works via emergent properties which cannot be predicted based on the individual parts, clearly this is an over-simplified and insufficient explanation of how consciousness really occurs. Considering how much we know about the parts of the brain and how little we know about how consciousness occurs, obviously there must be more to the story.

Moreover, in this model it’s hard to explain why people who have parts of their brain removed, still retain vast of amounts of memory. You’d think if you removed the memory centres of a person’s brain, that their memory would be completely lost. It turns out that memory is much more complex that this. Memory is not localized in one spot. Memory is actually determined by the frequencies of energy and light flowing through our cells from which, our brain creates a physical image and reconstructs the memories at that frequency level. Not only can the brain re-wire itself, and different regions be trained to take over the functions of lost or dysfunctional brain regions, but also memory and consciousness isn’t even localized in the brain.

Consciousness and intelligence emerge holographically in every cell in our body. What this means is that any part of the brain and body contains an image of the whole and the images and memories are physically created based on the frequencies of light and energy flowing through our cells.

So what’s the brain’s role in all of this? 

The brain’s role is this: the brain is like the director, the librarian or the antenna, that picks up external signals and controls the flows of energy in our body, which then create the thoughts we think, and the images and the memories that are activated in our mind. It’s all based on the frequencies of energy flowing through our body. The brain is simply the controller, which determines which frequency you’re dialled into. 

Human Consciousness emerged with the development of the human brain. However, it is clear that animals and all beings have some level of consciousness as well. But what distinguishes humans is that we have a Human Brain which is a super-antenna that can allow us to access and tune into a wider range of frequencies, energies and intelligence resonating in the universe. You aren’t necessarily smarter than animals and other beings, you just have a greater capability and infinite flexibility to tap into frequencies across the entire spectrum, presenting you with more possibilities to react to and control the environment.

Like a computer, the more bits of information your brain can acquire, through knowledge, experience and tapping into the intelligence in the universe, the more possible solutions your brain can create. The higher your brain’s energy rises, and the more flexibility your brain has to tap into different energy levels, the smarter you get and the better your brain can create different quantum platforms, which we can use to further evolve. The more capable your brain, and your creative imagination the better able you will be to overcome whatever you will face in your environment.

In any eco-system, the organism that has the greatest flexibility and thus threshold of  control in their environment, is going to be the pre-eminent species. This is precisely why humans, with our increased ability to access energy and information across the entire frequency range, are the only mammals on this planet that can control and manipulate our environment – for better or for worse. It’s all because we have a superior antenna, which allows us to see, imagine and do more things. Our brain allows us to see things as they aren’t, allows us to imagine, and allows us to see and create the future. Our brain allows us to dis-connect from the earth, and to create possibilities on earth which weren’t designed to naturally occur on our planet. 

The brain’s creative abilities is what enables us to create either heaven or hell on this earth. Good or bad. Yin or Yang. Given the brains powers and what the human brain allows us to do, you need three fundamental ingredients to achieve good in this world, and make sure the forces of good transcend the forces of destruction.

Here are the three ingredients:  The 3 C’s. 

1. Curiosity –  be hungry and actively use your brain to acquire information & pursue solutions.

2. Creativity – use your creative imagination, just like Einstein, to contemplate, explore and then create new innovations and connections. Use nature as your playmate and research assistant – try to make sense of the simple observations you’ve had over your life, and explore how they relate to your health.

3. Courage –   never back down in fear. Always pursue the pathways that your curiosity and creativity will lead you. Do no let the opinions and beliefs of others dampen your fire.

Why is our Human Brain so Unique? How Does Our Human Brain Really Work? 

The human brain has two primary roles as both a Super-Antenna and a Librarian.

The first role of the brain is as an antenna. When you get into your car, and turn on the radio, the sound just magically seems to appear. And if you turn the dial to a different FM or AM frequency you can tune into a different station with entirely different content, news and information. The exact same process happens in the human brain. Just like the currents of water flows in the Oceans, mirrors the currents of water flows in the Cerebral Spinal Fluid in your brain, and just like when you’re young and full of energy, you burn brightly just like a young white star, the processes on the earth and the universe are replicated and used in you. The Human Body is Universe in itself. This is called fractal design. Each part of the universe contains characteristics of the whole. 

You always want to make sense of your observations, and see how the mechanisms of nature scale and are replicated in you. This is how you can discover for yourself how the brain and body really work. So, your brain is an antenna just like your radio. Another good example is that your brain picks up the frequencies and signals from your environment just like a cell phone picks up Wifi signals. The difference between your brain and a cell phone is that your brain picks up an infinite number of frequencies and energies, way more than a cell phone. Because of this the information and intelligence that your brain can tap into is far greater than will ever be created in any technology. Any technology humans’ create is just going to be a sub-set of the possibilities our brain can contemplate and create.

The second role of the brain is as a librarian. In it’s role as the librarian, the brain is the key to grabbing the right book, with the right bits of information, which you are trying to recall for the specific situation you’re in or the situation you’re trying to imagine.  The efficiency of your memory is determined by how accurately and swiftly your brain is able to create energy flows in your body at specific frequencies, which enable you to access the information, knowledge and specific memories you’re trying to recall. If you’re brain doesn’t work right, and there is a lot chaos and inflammation in your brain, your brain as the librarian, doesn’t sort and store the information you’re learning properly, and it slowly and inaccurately draws information from storage. When inflammation, chaotic and energy-depleted, not only does the brain not store the books in the right places, but also, when you send the brain back to grab a book, it doesn’t go to the right place and so grabs the wrong book. Both input and output suffer – learning, memory and storage – when your brain doesn’t work right.  

The more chaos and inflammation in your brain, the poorer will be cell signalling, and the more you will fail to learn and store new information and the poorer you will recall information from memory. At the extreme, when your brain completely falters you get Alzheimer’s. Acutely, when you suffer a concussion, the brain is energy depleted and brain signalling suffers. As a result, the antenna can’t pick and up and transmit the right signals, and the librarian is put into complete turmoil.

So, the brain is both an antenna which receives and transmits signals throughout the body, and it is a librarian which stores, sorts and grabs information from memory. Your brain is influenced by all the signals and energies it is exposed to in your environment. Your brain then transmits all the energy inputs it receives into different energy flows throughout the body which create your consciousness. Your hormone panel is indicative of these energy flows, but currently science is unable to measure exactly how energy is flowing through your body. Hormones paint a partial picture. Hormone panels when combined with EEG’s can give you a better picture.

As mentioned above, if your brain doesn’t work right, your antenna doesn’t work well and you cannot pick up the signals from the environment and the universe. And the frequencies and signals that you do receive are all garbled up and chaotic, just like if you were listening to radio and were far off from a clear channel. If your antenna doesn’t work well, you fail to pick up and entrain to the healing frequencies from the earth, you fail to use the frequencies of the sun, and you fail to pick up on the energies, and thus intelligence, resonating in the universe. Not only that, you fail to pick up on the energies of other beings and other people very well, and as a result your communication and relationships suffer tremendously. Love and connection is oneness and synchronization with the energies of another person.  Memories are created by a synchronization with different levels of information which your brain receives and can express.

“The purer, more energized and more coherent your brain is, the better it works as an antenna to pick up all the signals, information and intelligence in the universe, no matter how old you are, what you’ve done, how many books you’ve read – all you need is to do is synchronize your brain so that that it can act as the super-antenna it is designed to be, to acquire all the information you to need to resurrect your genius.” 

– MasterMind

So how do you become a genius? 

Do you need to read 1,000 self-help books? Absolutely Not. If you’re big into self-development and have read Napoleon Hill’s Classic Think and Grow Rich, I am scientifically explaining to you what he meant by infinite intelligence and I’m now going to give you the simple steps of how you can tap into the infinite intelligence to become a genius. All information in this world resonates at specific frequencies. For the earth, the frequency is 7.83 Hertz, called the Schumann Resonance.

You know how people talk about feeling grounded and balanced, but speak about it abstractly? Physically what is happening is their brain is synchronizing and functioning at the 7.83 Hertz Schulman Resonance which corresponds to increased alpha waves in the brain. People who meditate, and are connected to themselves and the world, have increase alpha waves in their brain. Also people who are connected to the sun’s cycles, and have proper circadian signalling, by rising in the morning when the sun begins to rise, and shutting off all the blue light (T.V., computer screens) at night when the sun goes down, have increased levels of alpha brain waves. Alpha brain-waves correspond to being in the flow of life, being relaxed and focused, and being in the zone. It is in the zone where people tap into ideas, connect the dots between different information and ideas, and see things about the universe they normally never consider. I’m in a flow state right now as I’m writing this, and all these insights are flowing into and out of my brain onto the page. I’m going to stay tuned into this channel as long as I can! In fact, you can construct your day so that your entire day you are in a Flow State.

Bottom line, the information and intelligence that you are accessing right now is all based on the frequency and energy that you are synchronizing with and that is resonating throughout your brain and body. 

If your energy and life force is low, you’ll produce low energetic thinking, receive low energetic feelings and engage in low energetic behaviours. In essence, you’ll be the opposite of enlightened – you’ll remain in the dark.

Here is a formula to remember: 

ENERGY = FREQUENCY = INFORMATION = INTELLIGENCE. 

Based on what we learned above about the brain being both an antenna and a librarian, the key to maximizing these capabilities is to increase your brain’s energy and ability to reach different frequencies across the entire spectrum so that you can access different levels of information and intelligence at those levels. Basically, we want to move from cable television to satellite, where we can pick up all the channels across the world.

While these insights may seem a little abstract, all you need to know and all you need to do is increase your Energy. With increased energy comes the ability to shift across the frequency spectrum to different levels and states of energy to acquire the information that resonates at those levels.

Basically for you to tap into the information and energies of the universe, you simply just need to raise your brain’s energy so that your brain is the quietest, clearest, most efficient antenna, which can accurately pick up the frequencies and energies of the universe so that you can tune into all the information on that channel. Second, you need to increase your ability to transform and transmit energy, to have the flexibility to shift to different levels of energy and information.

The only two things you need to remember for Super-Memory, Super-Learning & Becoming a Genius is the following:

  1. Increase your Energy 
  2. Increase your Flexibility & Ability to Transmit Energy. 

The following MasterMind Process increases your energy and ability to transmit energy in all one shot. Do the following:

  1. Meditation 
  2. Qigong & Tai Chi (Yoga is good too, but Qigong & Tai Chi increase your ability to transmit and transform energy throughout your entire body unlike any other practice I’ve ever done in the entire world).
  3. Brain Training – Neurofeedback, Neurofield, Brain-wave & Bio-energetic Entrainment (with built in sound therapy)
  4. BRAINPOWER NUTRITION

Always Remember,

“All life is energy and energy is life.” 

Einstein.

Always be doing things that will elevate not drain your energy. Surround yourself with positive, high-energy people, eat natural higher-energy foods, and move your body to create energy to energize your brain.

More ENERGY = Less Chaos = Better Cell Signalling = Balanced Hormone & Neurotransmitter Levels =  Increased Learning, Memory & Increased Ability to tap into the Information and Intelligence in the Universe. 

In Ancient wisdom, your Jing “Your Hormone Essence”, creates Life Energy “Qi’, which ultimately creates the Shen “Your Spirit”, your ability to see and connect with the universe.

“The only limitations on you, your learning, memory, creativity, imagination and ability to activate your genius and tap into the infinite intelligence of the universe lie in the development of your life energy and strategic use of your Brain, which is an antenna that has the ability to tap into and receive all the signals and information in the universe and beyond.”
