Connecting You with Your Mind

 In a time when we are becoming more aware of Mental Health and the impact it has over our whole life a greater number of people are reaching out for help.  

Whether this is for overcoming problems or to enhance and improve from their current state, it is becoming more important for people to begin taking control back of their lives. 

Information is Knowledge, ‘Knowledge is Power’ and the more information you have on how your mind works the more power and control you will have in acting and being the 

person you want to be.

Taking the first step in any direction can be a huge leap.  And sometimes it’s difficult to know which way to turn, so many choices, so much information out there.

Perhaps you’re looking for yourself or for someone else, either way a simple message is a start, a good start.  If you’re curious, even if you don’t quite know what you want yet, thats ok, get in touch in your own way. 

I help people get through tough times and so much more.

 Whats written below describes in more detail how i work.  You may want this information or you may just want a bit of time to get to get to grips with the idea of doing something to begin making changes.  Sometimes just asking for help can be the game changer.

iSwipe

As a Mind Coach using iSwipe I educate and guide in How Your Mind Works drawing on your body language to convey your below conscious communication back to you.  This causes an interruption of neurology, old subconscious patterns, which causes you to change naturally in an upbeat, interesting and light way.  This can also open up learnings as to what is driving any destructive behaviours on a below conscious level.  This educational based approach is all done in a conversation and has been developed to effectively treat a myriad of mental, physical and behavioural conditions in a fraction of time when compared to other conventional methods.

95% of clients noticed an improvement in symptoms in 3 sessions

‘The Screen’ – The Hudson Mind Theory© (HMT)

The Screen’ The term coined by Matt Hudson to help people understand and get to grips with where we store information in our minds.  Our Biofield, this is what we subconsciously respond to which allows us to interact in life as human beings.  The most current up to date science is showing that our mind is outside of us.  This means memories, information, experiences, all our life’s ‘happenings’ are stored in a Biofield outside of us.  All this information could be simply called ‘learnings’ because it allows us to interact with world and others around us.  These learnings are continually being referred to and replayed in our minds, outside of us, giving us this ability to function and interact.  Problems arise when these experiences are stored with an emotion.  These are know as Emotional Memory Images (EMI’s) and they can be limiting, preventing us from thriving and developing in life.  They cause us to stay stuck and can lead to many of the following common conditions.

Memories can be linked with all the emotions we experience but it’s the memories that are perceived as a trauma that will often be the root cause of our problems.  A trauma is simply put a memory linked with a negative emotion, an Emotional Memory Image (EMI).  This could be an incident in the past that was a threat to our survival, a situation that we didn’t understand or felt helpless in. If these memories have not been processed, understood, resolved (how ever we could be choosing to word it) by the subconscious mind, it will still be repeating and playing on our screen influencing our thoughts and actions.  And because it is coming from the outside in, this means the memory has the ability to trigger our fight or flight mechanism in our brain.  We are firing a fight or flight response in our body from our own thoughts and experiences – HMT

During a session I work with you to gain access to what is causing your problem.  As an iSwipe trained practitioner I observe where you are storing this information in your mind using your body language, and all your below conscious cues and markers.  This brings new information in to you and we can then work to alter and change how or what you are experiencing.  I check in with you moment by moment recalibrating as the changes are happening.  You will be learning how your mind works and what has been driving you on a below conscious level.

The subconscious mind is super fast at communicating and indicates before we vocalise.  So it is the moment of accessing the problem that is most important.

This means the problem doesn’t need to be described in detail, if at all. The more we talk about a problem the more we are bringing it up on our screen which fires up our fight or flight response creating stress in our body.  As we talk about the problem, bringing it into our mind has in itself a physiological effect of shunting blood from our forebrain to our primitive brain, and this means we can not think logically about our problem and simply put we produce more stress hormones.   

Its fascinating watching how the mind is working and so beautiful witnessing the changes.

Want a bit more science?  Below for you……….

The Cerebellum or the small brain is responsible for the regulation of motor movements. Posture, coordination, stability and even speech are linked to this part of the brain that allows all of this information to run smoothly through our muscular activity. Although about 10% of the total weight of the brain it holds over 50% of the brain’s neurons, so it may be an older part of the brain from an evolutionary stance, yet it’s input to our everyday lives is crucial. 

The Amygdala is associated with emotions, pain and pleasure and it drives motivation for both. A simple way to think about the amygdala is as a fear response, if there is any sign of danger the amygdala will act as a turbo booster and thrust the rest of the body into taking action. Sometimes fatigue and lethargy are actions too, as by appearing sick, a predator may leave you alone. 

Brodmann’s Area 19 (BA19) is where raw images from the eyes are first registered and then the information is quickly distributed to other areas of the brain where by meanings can be interpreted about what has been seen. 

Emotional Memory Image (EMI) is an image that holds emotional content that has not yet been processed via Brodmann’s Area 19 

The Screen is the term given to the holographic working space in front of a person. It is here, we hypothesise, that the Emotional Memory Images are stored intact until they are worked with, using the Hudson Mind Theory©, to allow for Brodmann’s Area 19 to disseminate the EMI as it would any other raw images.   

Fight, Flight, Freeze, Flock…  are all the ways the Amygdala can choose to cope with a threat.

 

 

Skin Irritation

Skin Conditions, Eczema, Psoriasis, Dermatitis?

Whats getting under your skin? Whats irritating you?

For our skin to react to something, for us to have allergies, more often than not an event, a shock, causes our system to have a very strong reaction, and it gets stuck on this. I can help you uncover what you’re scratching the surface of.

Skin complaints can also lead to depression, anxiety and other mental health problems. It’s difficult, embarrassing, uncomfortable and can be helped. Drop me a message, nic.wood@ymail.com

NIC WOOD PAIN RELIEF FOR BODY AND MIND

Why is it so Difficult?

Ever wondered why it’s so hard for people to speak out when they’re suffering from depression?
You hear of people taking their lives without anyone else knowing, seeing the shock of the others they were closest to.
Our mind keeps us inside our head, in a problem state we internalise everything, even to consider talking about it can be an uphill struggle. So much going on inside and don’t know how or where to begin.
When in it, you know it.
A start can come from sending a message, just a gentle enquiry can open so many possibilities……

Perception

We all perceive things so very differently……
Knowing this may allow you to respond to mis-understandings with a bit more ease and peace.
We are all so individual, we take information in and use it based on what we have learned already through our senses, through experiences.
If there is ever a mis-understanding (which lets face it, there so often is!!) just take a moment and remember this.
We have all had different experiences and learning and this means no two people will ever be the same.
If you have a moment now, read this poem below it may allow you to get a feel of this in another way

First Day at School  – Roger McGough

A millionbillionwillion miles from home
Waiting for the bell to go. (To go where?)
Why are they all so big, other children?
So noisy? So much at home they
Must have been born in uniform
Lived all their lives in playgrounds
Spent the years inventing games
That don’t let me in. Games
That are rough, that swallow you up.

And the railings.
All around, the railings.
Are they to keep out wolves and monsters?
Things that carry off and eat children?
Things you don’t take sweets from?
Perhaps they’re to stop us getting out
Running away from the lessins. Lessin.
What does a lessin look like?
Sounds small and slimy.
They keep them in the glassrooms.
Whole rooms made out of glass. Imagine.

I wish I could remember my name
Mummy said it would come in useful.
Like wellies. When there’s puddles.
Yellowwellies. I wish she was here.
I think my name is sewn on somewhere
Perhaps the teacher will read it for me.
Tea-cher. The one who makes the tea.

Hair Loss

According to the NHS, Alopecia affects 2 in every 1000 people in the UK.
Stress is tough enough to be dealing with, and then to be loosing hair as a side effect is devastating for people. Or hair loss being the result of an illness or medication causes severe emotional stress.

It’s not only loosing hair that can be a problem but the condition, ie dull, dry and thinning, premature greying, can all be as a result of stress.
Ive just been browsing through a health magazine and saw a spread of pages on advice, supplements & hair treatments which more often that not only temporary supports. I used to work in a herbal remedy shop and recall numerous times people were coming in for lotions and potions to help them stop loosing their hair. It surprised me how many people were affected by alopecia, or just loosing chunks of hair at a time. If only I had known then what I know now! (When have you heard that before?!)

 

Don’t support it, SORT IT.

Your hair is produced naturally and effortlessly by your body, how often have you sat there and thought i’m going to grow my hair for today? Bit of a laugh right? You’ve just grown it naturally right? With out even thinking about it, haven’t you?

If your body is stressed then all of its resources will be going into the fight or flight response, and as we’ve mentioned before in this post Gut Health Blog.  The last thing your body does is digest food which means lack of nutrients does it not?  So you can eat all you like to support your hair and consume supplements and if your system is not digesting you will not be able to assimilate and process any ofit! You may as well be throwing your money down the loo….

Invest wisely….

SORT the stress by simply learning how your mind works and this means you can unlock your own problems, form your own solutions all with your own resources which you already have in side of you, that you just didn’t realise yet………

I can help you unlock your full potential

Allow your body to get back to doing what it does best…….                       Thriving, Living, Being

New Year Resolution same as before?

Depression, Anxiety, Insomnia are just some of the Mental Health Problems that I help people work through and resolve.

As a Body Mind Worker (BMW) using the Hudson Mind Theory I educate and guide people in how their Mind Works. Learning about your subconscious communication causes an interruption of problems and patterns and creates a new awareness of your below conscious drivers.

Your conscious mind is your decision maker and it is only 10% of your being.   Every decision you make is based upon all your previous learnings, which forms the other 90%.  Imagine how much more focused and successful you will be when you’re able to relearn from old learnings and get your subconscious mind on your side so you can achieve those goals you have been wanting for so long.

In a session you are given the opportunity to learn what your subconscious is communication and this learning allows for natural changes that fit in with you that you choose.  It’s all done in an upbeat, interesting and relaxed session in person or online.

Just in a conversation, using the art of language you can over come and change from physical, mental and emotional problems.
If you know someone who is really ready for change now, let them know help is available & share this post 🙂

Change our Mind change our Problems…..

Reaching for the Rennie?

Antacids successfully change the uncomfortable feeling in us but only temporarily, in fact they only hinder and worsen the underlying problem.

Why do you even have a problem in the first place?
If you read last weeks post you may remember or already know a stressed person doesn’t digest food.  Our body is getting prepared to run like hell…… not producing acid to digest.  In fact to be even more specific to the above statement of “Reaching for the Rennie” – “the chances of you producing too much acid even when you are not stressed is as rare as hens teeth” – Austen Burns-Jones – The Offensive Health Book
Great book by the way, really interesting and refreshing insights into allowing us to take back responsibility for our health and wellbeing.

The discomfort from acid indigestion is the side effect of rotting food. When acid production is compromised our food travels through the gut undigested, it is the acids and gases from this bubbling up that cause the unpleasant symptoms.

If you are continually experiencing stress, consciously or subconsciously your  body will not be in the right state for digestion to occur and your physical symptoms and problem will continue.

If you know what your stress is and there is a possibility it will continue, ie work, family, finance, would you like help in managing this? Could you imagine what it would be like to change and no longer be reacting in the stressful way. Could you imagine actually responding in a balanced, calm or even positive way to old stressors!?! Be pretty good right?!

Somepeople don’t know what the stressor is, everything on the outside seems fine but inside they are not happy or keep struggling in certain area’s of their life and yet it may not make sense. Wouldn’t it be nice to become more you again, the days and times where you do feel good to be this more frequently?

As a mind coach we can give you the opportunity to learn how your pre-programmed thinking is causing your reoccurring problems.
Get to the root of it…….. uncover or just process without revivifying what it was that is triggering you with the help of a Hudson Mind Theory Practitioner………. Yes. that’s Me 🙂

You may have heard or read me referring to myself as a  Body Mind Worker, I still do, yet we are being more specific with what work we are actually using to help people successfully change …. The Hudson Mind Theory HMT. 


What do you Want? Where are you Heading?

It is easy for us to know what we don’t want, but what is it we do want?

And how can working with our Minds give us direction?

I want to grow my business, evolving it more into the mind side of things.  Its been mentioned a few times over the last few weeks about people having a ‘Bigger Picture’, ie what they want, goals in life, dreams to aspire to.  So many people can loose sight of what it is they really want because they are so consumed with a problem or focusing on what it is they don’t want.  If this is true……..   “where attention goes energy flows”  well then wouldn’t it possibly be quite important to have something in mind that you want.  

The Hudson Mind Theory (HMT) puts it out there that cancer patients may often not have a ‘Bigger Picture.’  They are given a diagnosis that can completely consume them replacing what was their future ‘Bigger Picture’ with a scary diagnosis.  Without any dreams or goals or anything to get up for you can begin to see and get a feel of how hard it is for people to focus on anything else other that the problem.  

Our mind plays out in images, in front of us, on our screen (HMT) Like a car windscreen it’s good to see where we are going is it not?  Imagine having a crap problem right in the middle of your screen, you cant head anywhere else right?  Or it just makes it flipping hard to see where your going!  I guess I can think of myself as a teacher/mechanic, showing people how to use the windscreen wipers, or fill up with water, even adding a bit of antifreeze.  Changing the the view can make things a lot more fun and may actually free up energy to continue on the journey stopping off at any points along the way to enjoy too.

I love working with people helping them to get a sense of what it is they really want and then helping them to realise this using tools as a Body Mind Worker.  Using all of their senses for them to create their ‘Bigger Picture.’  Its as i’m writing this i’m thinking well then………  what is it about growing my business I want specifically?? So perhaps its time for me to do a bit more goal setting as they change all the time, as we evolve and flow with life so we change in so many ways……   & “That is the sound of Inevitability”  Matrix – Got to love it, not just a film!

So watch this space people because working with people using the Hudson Mind Theory, as a Body Mind Worker knocks my socks off.  I love giving people the space and tools to help them uncover and re-learn from their past events to allow them to grow and blossom and I so want to have more opportunities to work this way.  Its time to spread this beautiful work even more……….

What is Hudson Mind Theory?

This Post was written by a Friend of mine, Danny Greeves.  http://www.dannygreeves.com

We Have just returned from a weeks training programme 18 of us, with Matt Hudson in Antwerp.  Immersing ourselves for a whole week in this training allows us to clean our slates so to speak, this means when we work with others we are able to support them fully and allow them to shine.

What is the Hudson Mind Theory©?

Now usually I would follow this question on by talking about how each of us has an invisible screen, and how the information on this screen directs what chemicals our brain makes, which in turn leads us to feel a certain way. Through changing the information on this screen, we can change our thoughts, our behaviours, and our identity, as in to change the ‘who’ we are being.

And yet, after going through this week’s training course about family rules, this explanation just isn’t anywhere near enough. So I thought I would give you a little more insight into what the Hudson Mind Theory is really about after this week…

The effect and impact of mental health is growing day by day. The ever increasing statistics of anxiety, depression, and chronic pain show the alarm bells are on at full throttle. People are crying out for help, and the current education and medical models are not working.

People are dying.

And it is happening every day.

Mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters are losing their loved ones because through the way they have been taught growing up, or at times and places where their spirit has been oppressed, they believe they are broken, they can’t change, or because the pain they are experiencing is so great there is only one solution, and that is to leave this world.

There is a better way.

The etymology of the word education is an interesting one. It stems from the latin word ‘educere’, evolving to the word ‘educe’, which means to bring out, to extract, or to draw out. The 15th Century word ‘educaten’ means to ‘bring up children, to train’.

The Hudson Mind Theory can therefore be described as a powerful and inspiring education.

There is a plethora of research around what type of environment stimulates learning and education.

In a nutshell, human beings learn when they are in a space where they feel safe, where they can enjoy and express themselves, where they can be listened to, where they can speak their mind and know that whatever their thoughts, they will receive feedback and not criticism. We learn when the teacher inspires us, when the teacher can reach us at a personal level; not as a room of robots who are all the same, but as a group of unique individuals who share a common goal. We learn when the content of information is interesting, when we are engaged in the subject matter, and this happens when we can make a meaningful connection with it.

We learn when we are having fun, and we learn most effectively through experience.

This is the environment created by the Hudson Mind Theory.

Over this past week, people of different nationalities, locations, ages and genders have come together. Of course as a group of people, we each also come along with a collection of our own individual problems, each with their own unique shapes and sizes.

There were no labels, it was not ‘Mr Generalised Social Anxiety Disorder’, sitting next to ‘Mrs Depression’, facing ‘Mr Chronic Pain’. It was a group of human beings coming together in an environment learning what it means to be human again, where we could just become better versions of ourselves. A place where everyone just wanted more.

‘More’ of what you may ask???  More peace, more self-worth, more self-validation, more connection, more happiness. Whatever is was, it doesn’t matter.

To put it into another nutshell, more love.

What I have seen over the past week is a teacher who created an environment where human beings thrive. Where people connect with each other. There was side splitting laughter, there were tears of pain and tears of joy… and that was just me.

What I have experienced this week has been a group of people transform.

The learning has been phenomenal, we have learned about how the mind works and how we are set up for survival. We explored how the relationships we have with our primary caregivers growing up impacts upon us, and how we all want to thrive. Through this, an environment was created where personal growth happened easily and effortlessly.

The Hudson Mind Theory is an educational approach. It draws out your talents, your joys, and your love of life. It brings out that special thing about what it is to be human, and to be around other humans that just want to connect and have fun.

It helps you notice your childhood attitudes, behaviours and beliefs that are still present today without you even knowing. It helps you shine a light on past childhood unresolved pains, and it helps you evolve into a flexible, adaptable human being. It helps you move to a place where you have choice. Where you can choose to enjoy something with the excitement of a child, or choose to deal with something with the assertiveness of an adult.

The Hudson Mind Theory gives you choices. The choice to be who you want to be in each moment.

So in a world where people are struggling, where mental health is on the rise and chronic conditions remain more untreatable than ever despite the billions pumped in to find drugs to ‘fix’ them, I’ll leave you with just one thought…

What could happen if we were to each invest some time in experiencing the environment created by the Hudson Mind Theory? To truly connect with other people again, to truly reconnect with ourselves again, and to re-learn what it means to be human.

What would be possible then…

Stuck?

“Why is it that some clients remain with their problem even after every avenue for help and relief has been explored?” Matt Hudson

Ever wondered why you continually repeat the same problems, or same patterns? Want help breaking a problem cycle?
Our Subconscious mind excels at sticking to the road already travelled making it impossible to get off, and consciously we don’t know what route we are stuck on else if we did we’d get ourselves off of it would we not?
Because it is Subconscious, below our conscious awareness, we need someone out side of ourselves to guide us and coach us on what we are doing that we are not yet aware of. Helping us to break old patterns and redirect our focus so our subconscious can excel and help us reach the goals that we really do want.
