This is one of the biggest challenges I face with some clients, getting them to repair the disconnection between their head and their heart. I call this the Ichabod Crane Effect named after the headless horseman in the book, “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.” When we are young and are faced with experiences that cause overwhelming emotions, we may unconsciously decide to cut off from our body and our feelings; thereby setting up a lifetime pattern of disassociating from ourselves.

This protective pattern of living in our heads makes connecting to others very challenging. We wear shields of armor, unconsciously perceiving threats from the external world, especially in our committed love relationships. Many times, our reaction to our perception is to elicit a response from others to validate our story and prove we must defend and protect the unresolved vulnerable aspect of self.

I know this pattern all too well as I dealt with the aftermath of my past traumas. This is one of the main reasons I am so passionate to help others and created The Re-Claiming ProcessÔ at The Center for Neurological Intelligence™.

This pattern of internal disconnection is not a lifelong sentence. You can reveal, release and resolve the neurological pathways that contain the coding for this debilitating pattern. What was once a necessary survival skill early in life will morph in our adult life and create the greatest personal challenge for our growth and the health and success of our love relationships. Are you ready to do the deep work to free yourself from the bo***ge of your past?

We all have our own unique special brand of “weirdness.” These aspects of self are either wounded younger versions of self or protective personalities that guard and protect the vulnerable wounded younger ones.

When we get triggered and our nervous system activates above a certain level, the multiple aspects of our inner world come alive. The wounded one cries out for help and our guardians do their best to protect them. We regress back in time whereby we think and act like a child or a reptile.

The challenge of the journey is to learn how to love and accept all of our wonderful weirdness. Unfortunately, what happens is we create an adversarial relationship with these various aspects of self. Our disempowered self-talk criticizes, shames and rejects these entities, leading us to create inner conflicts.

When we can learn how to step into the innate role of our mindful empowered self, we can begin the process of ending the inner resistance and accepting all aspects of our inner world. We understand the intentions and fears of our protective guardians and gain their trust. Then we can heal and release the burdens of our wounded ones and bring peace, harmony and love to ourselves.

Wishing you and yours a safe, loving and joyful Thanksgiving, where we give thanks and show gratitude. I have a question for you to ponder that is especially relevant considering we are beginning the holiday season.

I ask that you reflect on your answer from multiple directions about how you show up for your intimate love partner and then toward other family members and friends “Is your Relationship Report card with whomever filled with A’s or D’s?

Those who read the posts from The Center for Neurological Intelligence™ know that I am a firm believer in the perspective that we all have choice. The challenge is when we become triggered and seem to lose control of our adult facilities. The gap between stimulus and choice is small and many times we get triggered and unconsciously go down the low road of reactivity. When this occurs, we morph into a different personality that is either rigid and shuts down or chaotic and shouts out. This is the culprit for most of the conflicts in the space between called “WE.”

When we are reactive, we usually engage our partner or others with a barrage of D’s. We Deny our accountability to the challenge and Deflect our responsibility for whatever. We Disconnect from them and Dismiss their thoughts, feelings and needs. We Defend our story to the bitter end and Debate the others perspective until they give up. If this is your usual reactive mode, let me ask you, “How is this working for you?”

Instead, you have a choice to show up and be mindful to stay in the attaching A’s. First, is to be Available to hold space as a Mindful Receiver. Then Attune to your partner and see, hear and feel the world through their eyes, without judgement. Then, Acknowledge their perceptions, emotions and feelings regarding their message. Align with how they made sense of that experience and finally, if necessary, Assure them of a strategy or a compromise.
Do you speak to yourself in a way you would like others to speak to you? Do you treat yourself in the way you would like others to treat you? As imperfect beings, most of us are burdened in some way with unresolved neurological wounds from the past. These inner wounds led us to develop disempowered patterns for how we think about and treat ourselves.

These various disempowered patterns are fueled by limiting beliefs and painful emotions. Over time, we created an identity for who we think we are and how the world is. One of the most powerful unconscious patterns we have within our inner world is to be congruent with our identify. If we are not who we think we are, then we lose our sense of safety, certainty and trust with ourselves.

We are self-validating systems and have a strong need to re-affirm our identity, even if it causes us to suffer. What ends up happening is we create cycles for how we show up, so the external world responds back to us, and we filter our perception in such a way, so we validate our limiting belief’s and trigger the unresolved painful emotions.

This state of being becomes our safe place, our comfort zone. This forms a boundary upon which we confine ourselves and contains the protective patterns we use to guard and validate our disempowered identify.

In life, especially early in childhood, we perceive events – real or imagined – where our nervous system activates outside of our zone of tolerance for a period of time. These neurological events metaphorically fracture our inner world and aspects of self are left vulnerable and unresolved.

These neurologically wounded aspects are stuck, frozen in time encoded with the painful emotions and beliefs about the experience. These are referred to as our Inner Children who cry out for help when we get triggered in certain situations. When we unconsciously associate to and activate this fractured aspect of self, we can feel the body sensations, emotions and perceive the perceptions of that time. We regress and sense, we feel and act much younger than we are in the present.

At the Center for Neurological Intelligence™, we believe that healing and growth begins with an understanding of how our inner world is programmed from the past and operates in the present. Using strategic intentional meditative experiences, we teach and lead clients to change the context of what happened within and release the painful emotions and limiting belief’s the Inner Child is burdened with.

True healing of our inner world involves re-claiming our wholeness by resolving the fractured aspects, re-connecting with the highest version of our mindful empowered higher self, and giving ourselves permission to live life with a peaceful soul.

Are you resisting a change that seems to be persisting? The process of change can be challenging and the most difficult aspect of this amazing unfolding of the human experience is how much we resist changing. I believe this is due to how we have neurologically wired in boundaries around certain patterns of protection which become our safe place, our comfort zone.

Pattens of protection are formed during and after times of high emotional experiences – real or imagined. These neurological bundles of energy and information contain the codes for the software that run our patterns. We create references for what things mean to us based on the context of the experience. We then unconsciously re-enact and re-enforce the pattern for who we think we are and how the world is.

When we form disempowered references, we use these to construct our unconscious beliefs. We then create rules regarding these beliefs, and these form the boundary which creates the inner resistance to change. The challenge is to lean into the uncomfortable feelings of the resistance over and over in order to become comfortable with the uncomfortable allowing the boundary to dissolve and empower change to occur.

Our Founder, Glenn S. Cohen, invites individuals and couples to embark on a journey through their past, present and future.

Every day, we have an endless stream of multiple moments of meaning. Meanings are how we make sense of the present moment either consciously or unconsciously. 90% of the time, we unconsciously assign meaning to our perception based on our references from the past.

If our references are red-disempowered, we may have a “Shift Happen” in our nervous system. If the shift is strong enough, this may trigger protective pattens of multiple personalities that lead us to think and act like a child or a reptile. These are the times when someone of significance looks at us later and asks, “What the hell happened to you? One minute you were fine and then the next, bamm, you were someone else!”

It is during these moments of dysfunction, when we assign a disempowered meaning that our body sends us a signal that says, “Something ain’t right in our inner world!” This is our golden opportunity to employ the neurological strategies to recognize and interrupt these patterns. We need to become mindful to sit with the body sensation, without projecting the inherent reactive energy onto others, until we become comfortable with the uncomfortable.

At the Center for Neurological Intelligence™, one of the strategies we share is to ask yourself the challenge question, “What would I have to believe in order to think and feel this way?” Once you have your answer, then put it through the TFQ filter by asking “Is my belief, true, false or questionable?” If the dis-empowered belief is based on denial, accusing, blame or assuming, then take a few deep breaths, reflect on a few new empowered perspectives and simply change the meaning in that moment.

"You have to be aware that you’re not aware and then you have to be mindful to give yourself a chance for choice.”

When we stop judging ourselves and others - THATS when we overpower our ego(s) and widen the gap between stimulus and choice. But first we must become AWARE that we HAVE A CHOICE in the first place.

Are you ready to be your own hero? Are you ready to end the chain of pain related to family legacy patterns passed down through generations? Are you inspired to step into and own your Mindful Empowered Self and live by the high standards of the inherent values? Are you ready to do the work to change disempowered patterns that cause you to suffer into empowered patterns that serve you and others?

As I share with my clients, the real work of transformational growth happens day to day, not in our sessions. When we are together, whether on Zoom or in person, we educate, we explore, we strategize and we practice the tools and techniques of the Process work. I teach my clients the art of SIMEs – Strategic Intentional Meditative Experiences to take inner journeys to reveal, release and resolve that which is stuck, unresolved in their nervous system.

What’s critical is learning to be mindful in the moment a “Shift Happens” in order to apply the proper tools and techniques to effect neurological change. In our sessions, we use remembered or imagined mindful process. Day to day, you use real, live in the moment experiences to apply, which has a much greater impact on your system than remembered and imagined.

Are you facing a current challenge that is causing you and others in your life to suffer in some way?

At The Center for Neurological Intelligence™, in the first session I have with clients, I share a whiteboard called The Journey of Life. It describes how we all hit a bottom – a challenge point at some points in life. These moments of mayhem may be of the small, medium, large and some maybe of the extra-large variety.

The point is that every challenge can serve as a mirror reflecting back to us the truth regarding the neurological work we need to do to heal and grow. To have this moment of meaning act as a springboard to begin the arduous work of re-claiming ourselves. The questions are how do we make sense of the proverbial bottom and what kind of questions do we ask when we are there?

When we realize that we have hit the bottom of the rabbit hole, we need to ask the three empowering questions as opposed to disempowering questions. The direction of the questions will guide the unconscious desires of your direction.

Neurological pain is a great deflater or can be a fabulous motivator! Every challenge is an opportunity to learn, stretch and change so we become inspired to help others and contribute to something greater than ourselves.

If we do not have peace within, we cannot be at peace with others. We may fake it, we may pretend well, but whatever we protect within, we will project onto the ones we love.

When impactful neurological experiences occur, we may, if we do not express and process during that time, form bundles of memory which can fragment our nervous system and create a lifetime journey to re-claim our innate, natural whole self.

When we fragment, we develop protective personalities to guard the painful, vulnerable aspect we were not able to express and process back then. These vulnerable aspects and protective personalities are stuck, frozen in time within our nervous system. The vulnerable aspect is burdened with the unresolved painful emotions and disempowered beliefs. The protective personalities are on guard 24/7, to faithfully do their job to protect our wounded self at any cost.

With all of this going on inside of us unconsciously, it’s no wonder so many of us experience inner conflict. This is a main reason we find it challenging to claim and sustain a peaceful soul and enjoy harmonious relationships.

“Playing the victim” is a pattern we learn as children which becomes the road of least resistance - we do it over and over and over until we recognize it as something that no longer serves us. In order to BREAK a pattern, you must first CHOOSE to do so. And that choice is ALWAYS within our power 🙂🌻

Do you mindfully and consciously choose the narrative of your story or is it habitually and unconsciously selected for you? The words we use to describe our perception of our experiences act as the colors for the picture we see, hear and feel. Our story is the compilation of words that form a narrative of language which we use to share our perception of ourselves and the world with ourselves and others.

If we dive into the script and evaluate the key words and phrases, is the story focused on what you want or do not want? Does the narrative lead you to get your needs for connection and significance met in a positive or negative way? Is the inherent meaning of the story based on you living at cause where you take responsibility for your thoughts, emotions, behaviors and stories OR does it lead you down the victim rabbit hole where you are living at the effect, blaming anything external of you for your thoughts, emotions, behaviors and stories? Lastly, does your story serve you or cause you to suffer in some way?

Timeline photos 03/11/2022

How do you process the perception of your view? Do you evaluate whether the meaning you assigned to the present moment experience as being empowered or disempowered? Are you mindful that you have an innate neural pathway based on references from your past that unconsciously influences how you makes sense of the present and assign meaning to the experience?

Whether we progress or regress on our journey is largely dependent on the unconscious patterns we have created based on past experiences. These patterns are our thoughts, emotions, behaviors and the stories we tell about ourselves, others and the world.

If we take the time to mindfully create a gap between some stimulus and our choice, we can then re-evaluate whether the inherent patterns we use are responsive or reactive. When we react and not respond, we regress and manifest disempowerment in our lives.
