Practical Science and the Power of Neuroplasticity
I am fascinated by how ancient practices and modern science support and challenge eachother to expand our capacity for professional and personal development. New research affirms the impact regular yoga and meditation practice can have on our mental health and overall wellbeing. We cannot always choose what happens to us, but we can always choose how we respond.
Neuroscience shows us that we each have the capacity to rewire our brains through the power of choice! They call it neuroplasticity – where we take advantage of the malleability of the brain and choose to actively strengthen neural pathways by practicing how we think, speak and behave mindfully. Neuroplasticity is the science of practice makes perfect! This coupled with ’embodied cognition’ – where we visualise an idea of the future and rehearse new scenarios that lead to us behaving differently and creating new results – aka raising our vibration – which can also be described as the science of fake it til you make it! So really, the world is your oyster, it just depends what you decide to make true! In the words of Henry Ford “whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right”.
Suddenly this means anyone can fulfil their potential so long as they choose their thoughts and practice their habits mindfully. This opens up huge doorways for those who invest time and energy into their own personal development. With a growth mindset rather than a fixed one – we can transform the way we think, speak and behave in our lives to create amazing things.
But this is not just thinking positive for the sake of it – if that thought flies in the face of our core beliefs then that’s not transformation, that’s cognitive dissidence! It just masks the problem on the surface and backfires by highlighting our own deeper limiting beliefs – leading to mistrusting the process and feeling it’s all BS. No. Instead, transformation is in acknowledging these limiting beliefs and recognising them as hangovers from the past, so we can practice releasing them and stepping into a new way of being. There is a definite element of trusting the healing process, and moving through it, to let the pain go and transcend to the other side. This way we can literally grow our brains, bodies and conscious awareness intentionally to create our own destiny!
Essentially, that is what motivates me to get up in the morning.
In my work with clients we look at your current ways of thinking, speaking, habitual practices and your current reality – we essentially take an audit of your life as it currently stands. We then look at your aspirations and work on envisionning your ideal life in all 9 areas of wellbeing. You can then dive deep into the 4 Pillars of Happiness process to transform your whole life in balance with your vision, mission and transform your pain into your deepest motivation to find your purpose. You will actively implement and enhance neuroplasticity and embodied cognition through tried and tested methods such as mindfulness meditation, yoga, visualisation and embody a new way of being. My programmes equip you with new tools, ‘win-habits’ embedded into your daily routine and new neural pathways that you can continue to strengthen for the rest of your life.
This is not another vague personal development programme that promises the world, it offers you a structured programme with specific techniques, dedicated time and clear intention that can be transformative – if you apply yourself. You get out what you put in – so the potency of your results reflect your willingness to let go of old patterns and carve new ones.
My programmes and retreats offer you the chance to train your brain consciously, attune your connection to self and speak your authentic truth with kindness, integrity and confidence. Rather than people-please your way into a contracted cul-de-sac of living, you have the tools to set yourself free to expand your mind, heart and horizon.
