The MINDset Game™
Written by: Debbie Adkins
There is a simple technique called Quick Coherence® “Quick Coherence Technique” from Heart Math Institute that you can practice to help you build your resilience and effectively manage stress during this difficult and uncertain time. Vered started our webinar by leading us through this technique.
Vered introduced participants to The MINDset Game™, a revolutionary concept that can change the way you see the world and how you respond to situations in your life. It can help you to rewire negative or limiting thought patterns so that you can feel more positive and release the resistance to change.
She explained the typical change process that people go through when experiencing a transition and shared the science behind how our thoughts and emotions impact our results.
She then discussed that life is like a maze- full of twists and turns that prevent you from seeing more than a few feet ahead. By playing The MINDset Game™ deliberately, you can leverage the incredible power of your subconscious mind to access the ideas, intuition, and motivation that will guide you to taking the next right step in the “maze” so that you can avoid potential pitfalls and dead ends and experience more joy.
At any moment, you are either focusing on positive thoughts- positive mindsets- that move you closer or “warmer” to what you want. Or, you are focusing on negative thoughts- negative mindsets that are moving you further away- or “colder”- from what you want. And, most of us are not actually aware of our habitual thoughts or beliefs because we are creating our life out of a series of automatic subconscious programs.
When you deliberately focus on positive empowering thoughts, your subconscious mind will help you access the ideas and resources to create what you want. On the other hand, if you habituality focus on negative mindsets like, “I can’t do this”, “this is taking too long”, “I’m not good enough”, or “I’m not worthy”, you are essentially choosing to move away from what you want. This is because your powerful subconscious mind- that part of you that controls your body and almost all of your mental power- will take those thoughts as a command and limit you from achieving what you want.
“You can create your desired future by consciously moving toward what you want”. Do this by:
- Decide what you are searching for and why. Your subconscious mind likes specificity.
- Tune in to your emotions to identify whether you are moving toward or away from what you want.
- Any time you notice that you are moving away from what you want, shift your focus. See handout for a few questions and a tool that you can practice to shift your thoughts, emotions, and behavior.
- Stay persistent and resilient until you achieve your goals.
At the end of the webinar, Vered offered participants the opportunity to access an online course containing videos and exercises to help them master their mindset (valued at $97).
