At Heart Centered You, I follow a methodology of both spiritual and scientific teachings.  

 

With increased awareness and empowerment, we can think and feel our way through any challenge (you don't have to be a granola-eating yogi to do this!)

You see, we were all born with a brain programmed for survival.  We didn't arrive with habits, perceptions, fears or beliefs - these were learned through our exposure to life via relationships, reading books, going to school, work and more. These experiences reinforced certain scripts about how life is supposed to be. These agreements and assumptions were then  encoded into our subconscious and now drive our everyday thoughts and decision making.  However, just like a computer or phone that holds data needs to be updated, so do our brains!

Did you know we can actually reprogram the brain out of old thought patters and use whats called neuroplasticity to create new pathways and neuron connections?  We CAN and you don't have to be a brain surgeon to understand it!

Our ability to focus, instill self confidence and form new habits are all neural muscles that need to be worked out, just like the body.  When we don't, we run into neural dissonance - otherwise known as brain chaos or misalignment.  We've all been there.  You know what you need to do but you can't seem to get there, you feel stuck or you find yourself making decisions from a place of fear or lack. You give up.  This happens because our subconscious brain (where are fears, beliefs and habits reside) and conscious brain (where our goal setting happens) are not aligned and no amount of willpower can override this.  We have to introduce some neural tension (good stress) to build excitement and then utilize visualization and meditation to prime the brain with mental rehearsal.  THIS creates neural cohesion (alignment of the subconscious and conscious brain) and is why using spiritual based teachings such as the law of attraction and guided visualization work so well.  They enable us to practice real life and the new goals, habits and beliefs we want in it before we live it, thus normalizing the new unfamiliar patterns and paving the way for change that sticks!   

Whether you believe in the energy of the universe, the empirical evidence of neuroscience or both, Heart Centered You has got you covered!
