The 9 -Attitudes of Mindfulness Meditation – Jon Kabat-Zinn

Non-Judgment:

Impartial witnessing, observing your evaluations and categorizations. Noticing the automatic habit of labelling our experience as good, bad or neutral. Habit of
judging locks us into an automatic reaction without being aware of them, where
they do not have any objective basis. Once we are aware of out judging, then we
can choose actions and behaviours more consciously, rather than automatically
reacting to the situations in our environment. This principle is useful as we
start to engage in a new mindfulness practice that our mind may judge as boring
or a waste of time.

Patience:

Allowing things to unfold in their time, bringing patience to ourselves and others.
This is an understanding that sometimes things must unfold in their own
time. This principle reminds us to be patient with ourselves as our mind is
stretched in new ways. Patience is a helpful quality to invoke when the mind is
agitated. To be patient, is to be open to each moment as it unfolds knowing
that like the butterfly, that some things can only unfold in their own time.
So, when starting out your mindfulness practice or anything else please stick
through whatever takes place trusting that some things will make more sense
after you have practiced them for a while.


Beginner’s Mind:
Willing
to see things as if for the first time.  We let our beliefs about a
situation prevent us from seeing things as they really are. No moment is the
same as any other. Beginner’s mind allows us to be receptive to new
possibilities and prevents us from getting stuck in our mind, which often
thinks it knows more than it actually does. Try to cultivate your own
beginner’s mind as an experiment. The next time you see someone familiar,
notice if you are seeing the person with fresh eyes or through the lens of your
beliefs about that person. When you are out walking, see if you are noticing
things, you might have overlooked before. Developing beginner’s mind opens you
to possibilities in life you may be missing out on, because you are viewing
everything through the lens shaped by past experiences, that is not aware of
what else there is to learn and explore.

Trust: Developing trust in your
feelings and yourself is an integral part of the mindfulness practice. The act
of trusting yourself and your basic wisdom, is an important aspect of the
mindfulness training.  If you are feeling strongly about something, it is
important to attend to that, rather than ignore it because an outside authority
is telling you to do so. Mindfulness is an objective process of inquiry and
accepting what people of ‘authority’ tell you without questioning the validity
of it for yourself is against the basic premise of mindfulness. It is important
to stay open and learn from other sources but ultimately you have to live your
life and make your choices that feel right to you. It is almost easier to trust
external authorities to tell us how to live our lives. Mindfulness involves
practicing trusting your own feelings and that doesn’t mean you react based
upon all your feelings but that you explore any feelings that show up fully to
see what they are telling you about a situation and then you trust yourself to
come up with the right action.


Non-striving
:
Non-goal oriented, remaining unattached to outcome or achievement. Even though
everyone undertaking mindfulness practice has some goals intentions while they
are taking their training, at the time of mindfulness practice itself, simply
do the practice without any expectations. When you set expectations, such as
feeling more relaxed, you are introducing conditions that don’t allow you to be
fully present with what is, because you are trying to change the present to be
something else. If you are trying to change the present then you are not being
with what is, which is what the mindfulness training is. Remember to allow
anything and everything that you experience from moment to moment to be there,
because it already is. If you are tensed, just pay attention to the tension. If
you are criticizing yourself, just observe the activity of the judging mind.
Non-striving may be the most difficult of all the principles because in our
culture we are taught to be goal-oriented and to be constantly doing something
in order to reach our goals. In mindfulness you will reach your goals by not
trying to change the present but by being present to whatever arises, and in
that way, you will find that the goals are ultimately reached. This is perhaps
something you will need to experience for yourself to really understand.


Acceptance
:

Open to seeing and acknowledging things as they are. It does not mean approval or
resignation. Acceptance is the willingness to see things as they really are.
Acceptance does not mean that you have to be satisfied with the way things are
or that you don’t do anything to change what you don’t like. When you have the
ability to see things as they are you free up energy to take the appropriate
actions, instead of working with a mind that is clouded by denial, prejudices,
fears, and self-judgments.


Letting go:

Non-attachment and the ability to put aside the tendency to elevate some
aspects of our experience and to reject others. Letting go is a way of letting
things be, of accepting things as they are. When you observe your mind grasping
or pushing away, you can remind yourself to let go of the impulse to grasp or
push away and see what happens.


Gratitude
:

Being thankful for the little things in life, can be very rewarding. Not taking our
body for granted is also very rewarding for ourselves. Being thankful for what
works in our body and mind is rewarding. Give thanks to our own body, inside
and outside, e.g., gives thanks to our legs, our heart, our liver, our spleen,
etc. Being thankful for the people who we have in our lives, that supports us,
being thankful for our food, the earth that supply our food, and more.


Generosity:

Give to others, your time, or things that they need. Give attention to others, not for a reward but for the only reason that you would like to help others, that you
would like to give to others, to make them feel better.

Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP). What can this therapy help you with?

NLP for conflicts (internal and external)

Internal conflict can keep you stuck in one place and keep you unable to move in one direction or another. What we do with NLP therapy, is to allow you to make a decision or have the right decision, not matter which one it is, to be made so that you can move forward. This is essential for your growth and mental wellbeing. In my clinic I will work with NLP and craniosacral therapy (if face to face sessions) or distance healing (if online sessions) to keep you moving.

NLP for motivation.

Motivation is essential for you to do what you want to do in life, in my practice, the motivation is for your health.

Eating well and losing weight easily. If you would like to be more motivated in eating well, exercise and keep your body, mind and soul healthy, then NLP and Nutritional Advice on starting your journey into health will be given.

If you would like to stop eating unhealthy food for you, NLP and nutritional advice is the therapy for you.

Stop smoking. If you want to stop smoking in a healthy way, NLP is amazing for you. I usually combine this with a nutritional advice and craniosacral therapy. Each session can be 1 hour or an hour and half. For NLP and Nutritional advice this can be done online as well as face to face.

Getting rid of phobias in one or two sessions with NLP (online or face to face). This is amazing for any type of phobias. Fear of flying, spiders, snails, heights, going in a lift, fear of snakes and more…

Changing old beliefs that no longer serve you anymore with NLP is also easy and keeps you moving in a direction that you want.

Dealing with emotions with NLP and craniosacral therapy. This combination has been used in the past year to get rid of the fears of the pandemic as well as old accumulated emotions from childhood. Sometimes some of the emotions have come been passed on from our ancestors due to past trauma and being imprinted in our memory cells, memories that have been passed on from our grandparents or even parents, if an imprint has been left. Amazing journey within that can have amazing results for your own wellbeing and moving forwards to your own path and directions in life!

Anchoring tools from NLP to anchor positive feelings and emotions to use any time that you have a need for them! This can be done online and or face to face.

Inheritance Trauma – What it is and what you can do?

There are many researches now that mention the possible connection with the trauma from grandparents to the grandchildren. We have many memory cells and since the first human on earth we have learned from experience and passed on that experience via our memory cells. If somebody was eaten by a tiger, or worse, the survivor human who saw it or witness it, would have that memory in them and pass on that trauma to the next generation for them to be aware of the tiger. It could be that the human would stay away from the tiger as an inner instinct that was pass on in our memory cells (all theory as this is very difficult to show in the scientific way).

© Inheritance Trauma

The research and studies done so far have connected trauma from past generation to the new generation, and especially the Holocaust survivors and the grandchildren of the survivor where it seems to be a connection between the “Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal Axis (HPA-axis). This means the stress response in certain situation is much higher than any other person that did not have parents with traumatic events.

My small sample of that is that my grandparents suffered more scarcity of food, and my parents growing up had the same. I grew up with my parents making sure that we always had enough food or plenty of food, and still to these days my mum stores more food that they can ever eat. During the pandemic, that was even more essential due to fear of not being able to get to the supermarket for food. So, for my parents, food or lack of, is the biggest enemy.

And in some way, that might have been passed on to me in an unconscious way, hence my choice of becoming a nutritionist and making food also my priority in some way or another.

In many studies, the traumatic events are only imprinted in some way in the cellular memory, when the survivor of the trauma reacted to the trauma with long term stress response and lifestyle changes. With the pandemic for example, everyone has been affected in some way or another, but many people have been affected more strongly according to the way they can cope with stress and life challenging. This seems to be in accordance to how their own parents dealt with stressful situation, unless they learn another way of dealing with traumatic events or have healed whatever trauma they had themselves in the past or their grandparents.

I have seen this ancestral healing many times in the craniosacral sessions and now with the neuro-linguistic programming, where the person is linking the possible trauma with a past ancestral trauma, which comes either from the father or mother side. It is amazing to see once that is healed, how the person life unfolds in a different direction and behavior for future stressful event. In some studies, the transgenerational transmission of trauma (TTT) has been connected to not only the holocaust grandchildren, but from survivors of war trauma, childhood sexual abuse, refugees, torture victims and many other samples. Even though there have been a lot of studies, it is very hard to prove such a thing as a genetic transmission of trauma.

Energetically I can say yes, this is what happens, as I have seen that many times in my own clients for the past 10 years through craniosacral therapy. Scientifically harder to prove. In reality as long as my clients gets better, that is where my loyalties go, rather than having a scientific evidence of it. Even with the placebo effect, if it works, well it works. If the clients feel much better after letting go of a trauma that was not theirs to keep or to hold on to, well it is good to let it go!

In some of the research on the topic, some of the children or grandchildren have nightmares of being chased and tortured like they were living their parents lives during the war. Where do the dreams come from? Considering that in the studies the children did not see any of the war films and I am sure their parents will never put them through that, where do the nightmares come from?

“Epigenetics is defined as the study of heritable changes in gene expression that are not due to changes in the underlying DNA sequence” (Kellermann N.P.F.).

The gene expression changes will be the consequence of environmental stress and major emotional trauma that would leave a mark on the memory cells. Our body will carry this type of memory in all our body cells, this includes eggs in women and sperm in men. This memory is then passed on into the new born chromosomes and hence will be processed as their own trauma. This will lead to a constant reminder of past events, our own or our ancestor’s past.

This type of memory can be passed on from generation to generation, if not solved and let go.

From the start of my craniosacral therapy and healing learning, I have been healing and clearing not only my past childhood trauma, but also my ancestor’s trauma.

I cleared that for my next generation too, energetically, so that the trauma will not be carried on to the next generation. I know that the healing works, as I can see the changes in myself and also subsequently through my next generation

This concept cannot be understood by the logical mind, and hence is impossible to explain it in a sound and scientific way, as I mentioned above. Remember if it works, it works!
