Marching Orders…

So where are we?!

To recap: we have a Mind that can deliberately set out to learn new things, some of which will become permanent habits like smoking cigarettes, playing the clarinet or doing any particular job or task.

Next we have a Body. And it’s this Body which faithfully runs our habits–and which is greatly resistant to letting go of these habits once they’ve been learned.

And this brings us to the final, and most important, part of the equation…the glue that holds it all together.

Just as gravity holds us to the Earth, and holds our planet in its place in the solar system, and holds our solar system in its little neck of the woods among some 100 billion other solar systems in the Milky Way galaxy, so too there’s a particular energy that flows through us and around us all the hours of the day and governs how we interact with our environment and with ourselves.

This energy is called by many names, the most common of which these days is some variation of the word Chi…including Ki or Qi.

This energy can also be thought of as our spirit or soul, and it isn’t some abstract, aerie faerie concept that emerges only during near-death experiences.

No, it’s a very real force that pervades every bit of us, inside and out.

Indeed, on a quantum level, this energy IS us!

One of my principal discoveries that emerged from years of doing changework with a wide variety of people is that, while the Body ceaselessly carries out any orders it’s given, the orders themselves come from the Energy circulating within us.

Now at times some of this energy, or chi, gets stuck or blocked somewhere within our body–which leads to soreness or physical pain.

This type of blocked, negative energy is easy enough to deal with once you know the secret of how to move it around or even get rid of it.

The changework I created is called Bio-forming, and it involves figuratively and literally reshaping our internal landscape to create an environment more suitable to living our dreams…in the same way that terra-forming is about recreating a protective, earth-like environment on another planet.

One of the foundations of Bio-forming
is a technique I refer to as, “Chi Cleansing”.

Chi Cleansing involves using a client’s own, inherent energy to create a small, powerful vortex that we can position over their body wherever they are experiencing pain.

Then we determine whether this blocked, negative energy is “part” of them or not.

In other words, we want to find out if this block should remain inside them or if the client’s life and goals would be better served by getting rid of it.

At this point in the Chi Cleansing process, we effectively trap the offending, negative energy within the vortex we’ve generated, and then, after the appropriate good-byes, we return it to the Light from whence it originally came.

All well and good!

And I can tell you that from my experience this process alone can have a substantial healing effect on people.

But, as with so many things like this, it turns out we’re just getting the party started!

Perhaps the most compelling discovery in my work came when I realized that these energy blocks didn’t always just show up randomly and out of nowhere.

Even more significantly, more often than not these pockets of dark, blocked energy turned out to have a specific consciousness and even intention within a client’s body–even though they most definitely even belong in there.

In short, quite frequently we are being blocked from achieving the success we desire and deserve by something INSIDE of us–something which is not from or even part of us!

Slaying Dragons…

We’ve all got problems, right?!

For decades now the self-help movement has generously delivered tons and tons of books, audiotapes, CDs and videos year after year aimed at helping us slay the dragons that are holding us back from living our dreams.

Unfortunately, the vast majority of this well-intentioned advice focuses on helping us pretend that the dragons don’t really exist…or that by never ever thinking of them again then they will magically go away.

Now while it IS a demonstrably superior strategy to imagine positive outcomes in our life rather than focus on negative results, positive thinking by itself has very limited value.

After all, if our success in life depended solely on our thoughts, who among us wouldn’t “think” of waking up tomorrow on a Caribbean beach with wasboard abs, millions in the bank and the partner of our dreams by our side?!

We like to think our Mind is in charge of everything–including our Body and our whole life. Despite the fact that our Mind gets the lion’s share of attention and pampering, the truth it is that it’s probably the least important factor in achieving the success we desire in life–whether we measure that success by wealth, creative output or service to others.

The role our Body plays in our day to day life is far more important than our Mind’s contributions.

Our habits–the good, the bad & the ugly–are run by our Body.

Our habits are simply actions we have learned so well we no longer need to think about them.

When you first started learning to drive a car, there were so many things to figure out that your Mind could scarcely make sense of them. Eventually, little by little, that knowledge seeped down into your Body and soon you no longer needed to think about driving at all, but instead could devote your Mind to any other task it desired.

“Knowledge is only a rumor until you get it in your muscles.”
–Robert Dilts

That’s why you can be utterly lost in thought while your Body safely drives several thousand pounds of metal, rubber and glass over 60 mph to your appointed destination.

And then when you get there, you have no particular memories of the journey itself, but you DO have memories of the thoughts you thought while getting there!

Our Body faithfully and tirelessly carries out all of our habits. We smoke cigarettes, experience social anxiety disorder, feel allergies or even play the guitar because our Body knows how to do these things for us…even despite us!

I came out of a background of traditional hypnosis and had the privilege to be trained by the legendary American hypnotist, Gil Boyne. As a hypnotist, I effectively learned how to communicate with my clients’ bodies…letting their bodies know the war was over, if you will, and they could lay down their weapons and go home!

It turns out that learning to “speak” Body and communicating creatively with it can be a very effective tool for change.

Yet, using hypnosis–or its related art of Neuro-Linguistic Programming–alone work only on some of the people some of the time.

After years of trial and error, of study and experimentation, of epiphanies and dead ends, I finally discovered that there’s a third leg to the puzzle of being human. I learned that there’s yet another force at play if we desire to make genuine and lasting change in our lives.

And this force, it turns out, is far more powerful than our Mind and our Body put together!
