Keeping An Open Mind

Have you seen the Web series, Soul Pancake? It can be found on YouTube. The series consists of inspirational videos that are thought provoking and uplifting. The one I am sharing with you today is called, Share a Cup of Success.

What the videos have in common is an element of surprise. SurpriseThere is usually a theme and people who are not affiliated with the videos are asked to participate in a type of experiment. These random people begin each session unaware and perhaps even wary of what is about to happen. At the same time, they seem to have a bit of hope, that whatever will happen will be a good experience. I look forward to seeing when the participants realize that what is happening is thought provoking and a positive experience.

Along with being a Psychotherapist and an Adoption Consultant, I am a Neurofeedback Practitioner. The type of neurofeedback system that I use is NeurOptimal®.

HappyWhen people try NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback for the first time, they have similar reactions. They don’t quite know what to expect, they are weary and unsure but they are also hopeful that what is about to happen will be a positive experience. Many times my clients notice that after the first few sessions, they are less anxious or are sleeping better. Immediately after their first session, they may feel more grounded and secure.

So often our mind wanders and that contributes to fear of the future and regrets of the past. With neurofeedback, the brain is trained to return to the present moment. After several training sessions, the brain remembers that it feels its optimum when it is not jumping forward or looking back. People who have meditated for years are familiar with how good it feels to be here now (present). Unlike meditation, neurofeedback sessions do not take years in order to achieve the same results.

And like a Soul Pancake experience, when people begin neurofeedback, they are pleasantly surprised by the positive results.
