Expanding your Brain in Real-Time

“The concept that mind creates matter is not a metaphysical proposition. It’s a biological one….your brain creates matter in the form of neurons and synapses in response to your consciousness.”
(Dawson Church, Mind to Matter, 2018)

Lots of research is coming out now (thanks to imaging machines and brain electromagnetic field readers) that the pathways in our brain are changing in real-time.

What you think and focus on affects the neuron structures in your brain directly, then and there. (Not just when you are asleep at night.) The rewiring is happening live as you focus intently on a task. The longer and deeper that you can focus, the deeper the neuron connections that can form in your brain.

Meditating in a Body Mindfulness Meditation class for one whole hour, and in the presence of other meditators, boosts this effect as everyone’s energy field resonates with each other, strengthening the effect.

This is why I also ask all clients at the end of a therapy session to not talk as they go home, and to lay down if possible when they get home. Most often people feel like doing this anyway. It’s a natural result of going deep. The energy your brain is expending in making neuron changes then and there is tiring. A good tiring.

You cannot feel the actual neutrons forming, there are no feeling receptors in your brain to let you actually feel this, but you feel the after effect in your body. You are tired, don’t want to talk and just want to lay down and often take a nap.

So after every deep body meditation and deep body personal therapy session, your brain has literally changed and the neuron connections in your brain have multiplied.

This is nice to know.

Disconnection from your Body can cause so much Misery

It never ceases to amaze me when a client has a problem (health/habit/phobia/limitation//trauma/psychological etc), that it can be changed rapidly just by bringing the focus into the body while the head is still trying to work it all out (the old way.) Some words of wisdom that can save you a lot of time, drama,Continue Reading

Changing your Deep Subconscious Auto-Pilot Habits

“Our brain captures the strategies that work to keep us safe, connected and respected as possible in our early life environment, and then puts those behaviors on autopilot.” (Amanda Blake, Your Body is Your Brain, 2018) The behaviours you have that are on autopilot are hard to change because they have been buried deep downContinue Reading

That Ego Voice in your Head

When it comes to Self Healing the bottom line – is facing the pain you have stored away in the cells of your body. Your ego is doing a great job at keeping that pain at bay and building an identity and behaviour pattern around it all to keep you safe. Initially that’s good andContinue Reading

Healing the effects of Bullying at School

A strong traumatic event from the past that clients often share is being bullied and teased at school. This can have such a strong effect on people’s lives later on. Many clients will say just how much bullying affected them in their lives. There has been more focus on this issue in the recent pastContinue Reading

“George, how do you remain so calm and balanced all the time?”

An executive client (while I was on location at a corporate client site) recently asked me ‘George, how do you remain so calm and balanced all the time?’ He had observed me over a six month period while I was working there with a variety of issues and employee behaviors and stresses that I hadContinue Reading

The Bizarre Twitches and Jerks

“What are these twitches and jerks George! They are bizarre!” Such were the comments of a client recently after their session. Welcome to my world! Where every little subtle sensation and feeling is treated as much more important than the thoughts in your head. To the average person, when they do this work, (getting into theContinue Reading

I haven’t been in this body for a long time

“I haven’t been in this body for a long time.” Such was the comment from a client recently in her first session when she came in for some work after a long layoff. This is such a great realisation, to realise that you haven’t been in your body ‘for a long time’. Just realising thisContinue Reading

Joseph Campbell – That ‘still’ place

I was reading a little of Joseph Campbell recently. For those who don’t know, Campbell was a very highly regarded American Professor and writer who specialised in the fields of comparative mythology and religion. A brilliant man and observer of life. From his book ‘The Hero’s Journey’ Joseph Campbell talking about his early years asContinue Reading

The difference with Body Psychotherapy

I have often in the past (not much any more) been asked what the difference is between a Psychologist and what I do as a Body Psychotherapist. This is a very simple question to answer. A Psychologist generally learns cognitive intellect thinking tools to help clients handle a particular problem or behaviour. They offer toolsContinue Reading
