Transform Your Mindset; 9 Ways

Transform Your Mindset; 9 Ways

March 7, 2021

Mindset is the topic today. Would you like to tweak your mindset? Would you like to transform it so you can achieve your goals and be the person you want to be? Many of my coaching clients have told me they’re stuck. They say they know what they want to achieve and they just can’t get their mindset on track to accomplish their goals. I’ve been there. I can remember times in my life when I felt like my mindset was holding me back. I didn’t know how to move forward. So, Let’s dig into this topic of mindset. Today I’m going to share 9 ways to change your mindset.

Transform Your Mindset; 9 Ways

1/ Identify Your Self-Talk

Sometimes I refer to self-talk as self bullying. It’s important to notice what you’re saying to yourself and make a note of the actual messages.
Flip them around into a positive message – like from, ‘I can’t earn money”, to, ‘Money flows to me in abundance’.

2/ Mantras and Affirmations

Many humans experience imposter syndrome at some time or another.

That means that somewhere in your subconscious or even your conscious mind, you believe you don’t deserve your accomplishments. Deep down, you may feel that you’re somehow a fraud. You might have a hidden concern that someday people will find out that you’ve been faking it. Mantras and affirmations can help counter this belief.

The words mantras and affirmations are often used interchangeably, but 

They actually have different origins and meanings. Mantras are words, sounds, or just short sound bytes.  Sometimes, people associate mantras with mysticism and spirituality and they’re meant to help you gain inner peace.

The ideas of affirmations came from neuroscientists and what they understand about psychotherapy and linguistics. They believe that you can consciously rewire thought patterns towards more desired outcomes by repeating impactful phrases and sentences referring to something you absolutely believe in, or want to believe in, in the present moment.

One of the mantras I personally use is, ‘I am a strong, confident creator’.

I practice a system that uses affirmations, and self-hypnosis, and I repeat 9 different affirmations over and over every day. They help me to work through past experiences and events that I might have otherwise pushed down. It helps me process my ‘pain’, or ‘anger’ or ‘just confused thoughts’ in a positive way. The name of the system is 7th Path Self Hypnosis’. 

One of the affirmations is about seeing everyone and everything, with compassion.

3/ Understand the Conscious & Subconscious Mind

Erika Flint, my hypnosis teacher explained it this way. She said, imagine you are looking into a totally dark room. You shine the beam of a flashlight into the room and you can only see one small area of the room at a time. You can move that light beam around, but you're not able to illuminate more than a small amount of the room at any given time.

Then you switch the light on. You can suddenly see everything in the room. That fully lit room is like our subconscious mind. It is filled with a large number of details. Our conscious mind only reveals a small amount at any given time, just like the beam of light revealed.

4/ Spend Time With Like-Minded People

Jim Rohn famously said that ‘we are the average of the five people we spend the most time with’. This relates to the law of averages, which is the theory that the result of any given situation will be the average of all outcomes.

The people with whom we surround ourselves are the biggest influence on our behavior, attitudes and results. The course of your life is set by the people you choose to spend the most time with.

5/ Create New Habits

Habits have been a powerful way I have achieved goals in my life. You can use habits to your advantage to help change your mindset and accomplish some of your most daring dreams.

I encourage you to read a book called, The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg. This book talks about scientific discoveries that explain why habits exist and how they can be changed. Duhigg uses stories to help us understand the power of habit and how we can all use it to our advantage. 

Another book you may want to consider reading is, ‘Atomic Habits by James Clear.'

6/ Embrace Your Fears

Don’t stay in your comfort zone. Decide what you want in your life and go for it. 

What motivates you? What makes you tick? Some people don’t know. Look back to childhood. Meditate – discover the answers to these questions by spending time alone, in nature or in silence. Maybe for you these answers will be revealed as a result of forms of exercise like running, swimming, or mountain climbing. Once you realize what you truly want in your life, then begin, step-by-step, to make that happen. Make a promise to yourself and be determined to make it happen.

7/ Have a Journaling Practice

In my last point I talked about embracing your fears and I said you need to come to terms with what you truly want in your life. Journaling is a great way to get in touch with what you truly want. A lot of times, we are suppressing our true desires. We are afraid to be vulnerable because we often have fear and pain related to these goals. Maybe we’ve experienced failure. Our subconscious mind wants to protect us. It wants to make sure we’re absolutely safe so it will do almost anything to make sure we don’t experience pain or hurt. Even though it’s protecting us in the short term, in the long term we’re much better off if we’re willing to experience some vulnerability. Step out and have the courage to embrace your fears. Daily journaling is a powerful way to make this happen, and it can speed up the process considerably. Make journaling a daily habit.

8/ Hire a Therapist or Counselor

They will set up appointments and will offer you a listening ear. There are lots of skilled therapists and counselors out there, and many people have been successful with this method of getting unstuck. A skilled counselor will help you work through the inner challenges of what’s holding you back. This is a method to consider if you have exhausted every other method you can think of. Be prepared to be vulnerable and be willing to take the necessary time to make the progress you’re looking for.

9/ Consider Hypnosis

One of the quickest ways to break through your mind blocks and to move forward is to work with a hypnotist. A skilled hypnotist will help you discover what’s holding you back a lot faster than some of the other methods.

Not to say the other methods aren’t effective or powerful, it’s just that hypnosis can be a shortcut into your subconscious to address issues that perhaps you’ve been pushing down all this time. Maybe your conscious mind wanted to protect you and you just haven’t dealt with the issues. Like I said, psychotherapy or counselling can work, but it sometimes takes months or even years. Having a hypnotist help you is usually much faster. Another thing you can do is to learn the skill of self-hypnosis. Most people learn how to do this from a hypnotist who already understands how hypnosis works.

Effect on Emotions

  • Mindfulness has helped me reach a more level situation, to avoid the extremes and to get on top of extremes when they come.

Thoughts on Breathing

  • I don't enjoy very controlled breathing. I enjoy watching what my breath does, and being with that rather than jumping on top of what it's doing.

Bullying Story

  • I was bullied at school a lot because I was so different. Also, I increasing think I was quite unkind to a lot of other people at school as well. It's so easy to recognize your own victimhood without think of the wider impact of that. I was really unkind to some girls at school.
  • I would never see myself as a bully. I would see myself as very anti-bullying and as bullied, but when I look back I think, how must they have perceived my behaviour?
  • Mindfulness would have helped. I would have had a sense of my own behaviour, better handling how I was behaving.

Learn Mindfulness From Children

Learn Mindfulness From Children

February 28, 2021

What can we learn from children about mindfulness? If you pay attention, you will gather a huge volume of knowledge about mindfulness by paying attention to children. I'm going to focus on the 2 words, ‘What If'.  If you find yourself thinking these two words a lot, you may not be as mindful as you think you are. Or those two words may reveal to you why you’re struggling, why you’re not feeling grounded, why you experience scattered thoughts.

Just think about those words for a second. How often do they pass through your thoughts?

What if I don’t finish this report on time? What if that car veers over and hits me head-on? What if I get the corona virus? 

We can start a million questions with WHAT IF, and does it do us any good? That’s something we could debate, but lets think for a second about children and how they think. Do any young children you know often ask the question, WHAT IF? 

If they do, it’s probably because they’re learned that phrase from adults. In their most comfortable, happiest state, I’ve noticed that children are in the moment and seldom think about WHAT IF.

7 Ways To Learn Mindfulness From Children

1/ Listen

Listen, Listen, Listen. And as you listen, show interest showed genuine interest, ask questions, smile. When they tell you something, be genuine about, about your interest in what's going on in their minds and in their life. Sometimes it's important to get down physically on their level and then just listen to what they have to say. And I can't emphasize this enough. Being a great listener is such an important skill to develop and we can always improve at being a better listener.

2/ Find What Activities They Enjoy

Find out what activities they truly love and show interest. Now, my son loved Pokemon for a long time. So I would learn the names of some of the characters and ask him how he was doing in his recent Pokemon games. And, and I would ask him about YouTube videos that he would look at that were about Pokemon.

And I think that made a difference. I think it's really important to show genuine interest and find out what children really love. Like when I go into classrooms and I'm with children. They sit up and take notice when I say, hey, so what games do you like to play? Or what do you like to do after school? Or, you know, things like that. And it just shows genuine interest. So find out what activities they love.

3/ Know Their Name

It's so easy to mispronounce some names and I can be the world's worst at that at times. But when I'm with a group of kids, whether I'm teaching mindfulness or I'm at a school filling in for a teacher, I make an effort, a real true effort to get their name right.

And I tell them that right at the beginning of the day, I say, look, I will put every effort into getting your name right. And if I get it wrong, please, correct me. I want to know your name. I want to say it right. And you know, you've probably heard this before. There's no sweeter sound and hearing your own name. Of course don't overdo it. It's gotta be natural. It's gotta be comfortable when you refer to that, that person, but really make an effort to use the person's name. Use that child's name

4/ Tell Stories

Like most humans, children love stories, and they learn from them. And they particularly like stories about topics of their own personal interest. Makes sense. Right. If you know the child likes spiders, like they just have this really profound interest in spiders, then tell a story about a unique spider web you once saw or a story about a movie where there was a spider featured. If you really allow yourself a moment to think about it, you can probably remember an appropriate story. It might even be a post that you noticed on social media that relates to spiders.

5/ Offer Encouragement

5/ Offer Encouragement. So be as upbeat as possible and say at least three or four positive comments compared to every less positive comment. So now this takes a lot of practice and skill to do this, to convey lots of positive comments compared to your negative comments.

And as adults we're used to noticing what's wrong and then commenting on things, noticing what the child is doing wrong or what they need help with, you know, telling them how to do it. We're used to telling them to settle down, be quiet or be more careful, all these kinds of things. Aren't really the most positive. I mean, obviously you have to say things like that sometimes, but try to balance those kinds of comments off with statements like, wow, I noticed how quiet you were while the baby was sleeping well, that's, that's great. Thanks for doing that. Or, or gee, you're getting really good at putting your boots on yourself. Wow, terrific. You know, children really respond to that kind of thing.

6/ Show Relaxed Body Language

Children are reading our body language all the time and it speaks volumes to a child.

So yes, the words we say are critically important, but our body language can be very, very important. A lot of times we're in a hurry and we have to go and do so many different things. That busy and frantic frame of mind can display itself in our body language. So, so take the time to notice yourself and you know what? You might even, you might even try this. Use a video camera or your phone to shoot some video of you spending time with your child. Notice your body language. You might be surprised what you see on that video. And of course, make sure you get permission from anybody who might end up being in the video.

Showing relaxed body language and being aware of the body language that you are showing is a skill that takes time to develop.

7/ Smile and Laugh

7/ Smile and Laugh. I think we don’t laugh enough in life. When you spend time with children you see that they love to laugh. They love to smile. In their natural state, they are pretty happy.

They just really want to focus on what’s happening at the moment. They become connected with what's going on at the present moment. And I think the more we can go with the flow and encourage a happy pleasant atmosphere, the better it is. So smile and laugh as much as you can and you will become more mindful. And if you can become more mindful in your life, you, you will have less anxiety. You will feel more grounded. You will feel more focused. There are so many benefits to being more mindful.

Effect on Emotions

  • It takes a lot for me to get upset. I used to be hair-trigger because of my sensitivity.
  • When I am upset, I know there's a breakthrough or something for me on the other side.

Thoughts on Breathing

  • My current spouse taught me to drop my abdomen because my umbilical cord was too short, so I had a physical issue with breathing.
  • I learned how to release it so now I can oxygenate my entire body by pulling in breath from here, from here, from the top to the bottom. It's kind of an energetic thing.
  • I can hold my breath for a very long time.
  • Breathing is a tool and if we become mindful, if we can expand with the breath, it's awesome.

Bullying Story

  • I was chubby, I was uncoordinated. My parents house was messy, kids weren't allowed to visit. I was ridiculed and not invited to parties, or they planned parties and changed the date so I would show up a week later. Cruelty like that. People would knock my books out of my arms at school, stamp on my pens, called me names.
  • That all stopped when I started the martial arts. But what the damage had done, did not stop because I felt different, which I was. I was not standard issue.
  • I loved books and I loved nature. I would be much rather be sitting on a roof with the ladder pulled up, reading, or on the tree across the street where no one could get me.
  • I didn't know how to handle bullying. What allowed me to move into a space of self-confidence, was the martial arts. It was such a serendipity.

Transform Broken Relationships Using Mindfulness

Transform Broken Relationships Using Mindfulness

February 21, 2021

Transforming broken relationships using mindfulness is the topic today because my listener, Monica, responded to my request on a previous show. I asked listeners to send in show topic requests and then I'd send out a Mindfulness Mode mug to the person who submitted the topic I chose. That is Monica.

Mindfulness Helps

Having interviewed over 600 guests for Mindfulness Mode, I’ve certainly gained a lot of expertise on how mindfulness can help a lot of aspects of your life. I don’t consider myself a relationship expert, but I do know that mindfulness can make a huge difference when interacting with people and when building and growing relationships.

Thinking way back, I remember my first wife getting really angry with me and taking off her ring, dropping it in my shirt pocket, and then telling me in no uncertain terms what I could do and where I could go.

If I had known then what I know now, I would have handled the situation completely differently. What led up to that emotional explosion, would have been different too. I would have used my mindfulness skills to be better connected so that she knew I had no intention of being a schmuck.

In spite of that memory, the marriage was mostly positive with very few disagreements. The reason the marriage ended was not because we didn’t get along.

I’ve now been married over 20 years to an amazing woman and the mother of our son. She’s taught me a lot about relationships and, interestingly, so has my son.

You Can Improve Your Skills

Mindfulness definitely takes a central role in what I’ve learned about making relationships work.

Here are seven important points about using mindfulness to improve broken relationships.

1/ Believe in You - You are enough, you are a gift, you are meant to be here, you are talented and valuable. Learn to love yourself and your relationships will prosper.

2/ Listen with your whole self – Listen with your eyes, with your body language, with your words. Repeat things back, practice every day being a great listener.

3/ Be A Giver (Give 110%) - Giving is what feeds us. Have you ever noticed that if you are feeling down and you decide to help someone or be a giver, then you immediately start to feel better? It’s true. Being a giver helps you and the other person.

Learn To Forgive

4/ Forgive – If you’re not able to forgive people for things, you probably aren’t able to forgive yourself for some of the things you’ve done. We traditionally think that forgiving is for the other person, but it is actually a huge benefit to you. Forgiveness allows you to let go of anger and pain that has been holding you back.

5/ View others with compassion. – If you pay attention to your inner voice, you will notice that you sometimes judge others or situations and you may be missing some compassion at times. If you practice viewing everyone and everything with compassion, your relationships will begin to change. The way you think will begin to change. You will start to feel more fulfilled, more content, and happier.

6/ Honesty – Be honest with yourself. When making commitments to yourself, don’t cheat. Be true to yourself. Being truly honest with others will help your relationships as well. Practice being more honest in your life and it will have huge benefits.

7/ Practice Gratitude – Be grateful, even for the little things. Sometimes we dwell on what is going wrong, or what is holding us back, and we might say to ourselves, I don’t have anything to be grateful for right now. Step back a bit and be thankful. Consider using a gratitude journal. Write down 5 things you’re grateful for every morning when you first wake up.

Conclusion

If I had known these seven Mindfulness Tips about relationships, my ex-wife would never have dropped her ring in my shirt pocket, and life would have been different. But it’s not too late for YOU to make a difference with your relationships and start practicing these tips every day.

Effect on Emotions

  • The emotions are still the same; they come, they go. I am able to relate more skillfully and wholesomely to them most of the time. There's definitely more space, less identification with them. I can be with them [emotions] without getting swept away.

Thoughts on Breathing

  • The breath and the body are great anchors. The breath is always right there. The body is always in the present moment. To feel yourself breathing, you are already connected to your life and to reality.

Bullying Story

  • I've been in both positions [bullied and bullier]. As a result of being bullied, I can very easily shut myself off as a protection mechanism. That's something that I've had to work with.
  • As soon as I get into an argument with somebody, I can shut off, so it doesn't matter what you say to me, it's not going to hurt. Then I can come back, [saying] you're not going to hurt me because I've cut myself off. I'm going to be the one who's going to hurt you. That's the way that I've grown up as a way to keep myself safe.
  • For me, mindfulness is realizing that the other person is a person. When you're younger and you're making fun of somebody, I don't think you make that connection.

How Mindfulness and Hypnosis Connect

How Mindfulness and Hypnosis Connect

February 14, 2021

Hypnosis, much like mindfulness, is a powerful state of focused awareness. Mindfulness can be used to become more grounded and more content. Hypnosis is a specific tool that can help uncover and dissolve the root cause of many issues people suffer from every day. Hypnosis allows you to access healing resources within the subconscious mind, promoting natural healing from within. Hypnosis is used to help people discover the subconscious reasons for their symptoms, behaviors, or habits. When these reasons are discovered, certain tools and techniques are used to help release them and relearn a new positive way of thinking, subconsciously. Hypnosis has been sanctioned and used by the medical community since 1958 to help patients overcome chronic pain, create anesthesia, and heal psychogenic illnesses.

Mindfulness Connection To Hypnosis

  • Mindfulness will teach you to live in the moment, focus on your breathing, and realize the value of gratitude. Through mindfulness, I have learned to experience a state of focused awareness and daily meditation has improved my life greatly. As a result of meditation, I feel more grounded, more focused, and definitely more connected to my emotions. Hypnosis can be used in the form of self-hypnosis or a hypnotist can help you achieve a state of hypnosis and deal with issues that are holding you back.

Effect on Emotions

  • Hypnosis can help you become more aware of your emotions and deal with specific issues that are causing you to be stuck or frustrated. Many people have used hypnosis successfully to change mind blocks and move forward in life in order to fulfill their goals and dreams.

Peter Gibb grew up as an introvert who yearned to be an extrovert, then learned over the years that good communication has little to do with introversion and extroversion. He has spoken and consulted on Mindful Conversation in 18 countries and 3 languages over a 
30 year period. He is the author of the forthcoming book, Mindful Conversation: The Magic of Connection and the memoir King of Doubt, which deals with his own struggles with self-doubt and Imposter Syndrome. Peter lives in Ashland, Oregon, USA.

Importance of Humor in Your Life

  • I love humor. Humor makes me feel alive and humor is a way of connecting. Humor is also very personal.
  • What's humorous to me, may not be to you. I find that when I am most alive, my sense of humor just shows up.
  • I never know when it's going to show up. I'm not a big joke teller. Just the joy of seeing that and not passing judgment on it but just noticing it.
  • I love it when other people's sense of humor shows up and when mine shows up and then we can play on that stage.

Thoughts About Courage

  • I think fear is stopping a lot of people from having mindful conversations. I'm afraid that if I show you who I really am, you're going to say get out of here. We're all vulnerable.
  • I struggled for years and years and wrote about it in King Of Doubt, with what I called Imposter Syndrome. It was years before I had the courage to say, “I'm going to share, and put content out there, and I hope you like it, but if you don't, I'll survive.”
  • I'd rather share who I am and have you say, you're just not my kind of guy. My experience is, when I share who I really am, I far more often connect and people do like me, than if I'm playing some sort of a game.
  • But it takes a lot of courage to believe that and to put yourself out there.

Bullying Story

  • I was not the subject of the bullying, but I got very close to it. In my coaching and consulting around Mindful Conversation, I worked in a lot of different companies and government agencies and I worked in a hospital for about a year.
  • I remember one day in particular, the medical Chief of Staff came to me and he said, “I want you to work with this particular doctor. He is our best orthopaedic surgeon and we're having a terrible time with him.”
  • Even patients don't want to see him. And nurses are refusing to work with him. I want you to help him.
  • I met with him and I talked to him about why I thought this was important. All the coaching I did didn't have any impact at all. This guy was a horror in the operating room where you need to work really closely together. He considered himself the King of the operating room and he was a horrible bully.
  • I was about to give up but I finally decided to set up a time when I would bring in some of the nurses and ask them to just tell what it was like to work with him. Most nurses did not want to do it, but I finally found four nurses who would come and talk with him. I set up some ground rules to make it as safe as possible. We had a really profound understanding because I really encouraged everybody, don't respond, I just want you to listen. Then I want you to repeat back what you heard. You can totally disagree with it.
  • The meeting lasted about an hour and a half. At the end of the meeting I dismissed the nurses and I turned to him and I said, “What do you think?”
  • He broke down in tears. He said, “I don't want to be that kind of man. Help me to change.”
  • I was so moved by that. This was a bully to the nth degree. That was his persona. Because these four nurses had the courage to be vulnerable and to say, “this is my experience when I'm around you”, it changed that doctor's life.

Effect on Emotions

  • I don't believe we can have a deliberate hand in anything unless we are present. Mindfulness is a gateway to that presence and it allows us to have dominion over ourselves on all levels including our emotions.

Thoughts on Breathing

  • The breath allows us to center and allows us to ground and allows us to change the part of the brain we are operating in and to get to a really clean space to be able to move forward in a direction that we consciously we chose.

Bullying Story

  • This man is the only person I ever bullied to be in my program. We were friends and I had it in me that this guy was really going to be served by my program. Generally speaking, I don't have sales conversations with people, I have opportunity conversations with people to share what the opportunity is and to understand if I want them to be part of my community or not. I just knew that this guy was going to add to our community. He finally said yes. For about a year he kind of bimbled. Then after while he said, I really want to take this seriously. He decided to upgrade it to the higher level of my program. Within three months he was making ten to twenty-five thousand dollars a week. Initially he was trying to use his music as the source of his abundance. He had a very traumatic experience around 2008.

Effect on Emotions

  • When I do not meditate for a week, I can feel it. Even simple breathing exercises when I wake up and when I go to bed, just simple box breathing. Four seconds inhale, four seconds exhale and so on, it makes a very big difference.
  • When you're getting angry in a meeting or something like that, then something in your brain tells you, just breathe. Then you start breathing and you control your parasympathetic system and things start going better.

Bullying Story

  • I was bullied. It was one of my bosses in the past. It was one of the first jobs in the United States. When I started to work there I was really happy and then things started to look really odd.
  • Business-wise, this guy was successful, but he was saying things that were really weird. He was bragging about listening to people's opinions just because then he could convince them how wrong they were.
  • At the beginning I thought it was just a joke or a salesy type of speaking. Then at some point I realized that people were coming out of the meetings with him shaking. It was not just me. Then I started to get more worried. I started to realize that the guy couldn't accept anybody else's opinion.
  • I began to wonder if it was normal that there would be a dog at work running between my legs and barking, even while I was on the phone with a client. The guy had a dog and it was fetching while everybody else was working.
  • This was the first office I'd seen in the United States so I wasn't sure what to expect. I asked other people and they said it was out of line.
