Monster to Mentor (Wrap Up)
A collaboration with Hazel Gale: Founder of the Mind Monster Project
|Gail Boenning||Jun 8, 2019|| 4|
It’s estimated that for most people 70 percent of their 50,000 daily thoughts are negative. People bring destructive habits and limiting self-beliefs to therapy, wondering how they’ll ever make a dent in them. However, the beauty of having a regenerative brain is that it means we can let go of unhelpful habits and update unrealistic beliefs. We do it all the time. Do you still believe in Father Christmas? No, I thought not. Yet, he did seem real once, didn’t he?
Your mind is a self-adapting, intelligence-generating machine of truly awesome power. And this book is about learning how to collaborate with it, rather than battling against it in order to make a difference. Because believe me, there’s more to life than just brawling for the win. The real fun comes from learning to love the game and make something meaningful out of it. ~Hazel Gale—Preface to Fight: Win Freedom From Self-Sabotage
Did you find value in the Monster to Mentor series?
I’d love to hear your thoughts and ideas about conscious thought, unconscious thought, self awareness and Mind Monsters.
Substack rolled out a new platform feature this week. Publishers (like me) can open a discussion thread. I’m curious! The Mind Monster series offers a great opportunity for conversation. I’m going to open a subscriber only discussion thread on the topic tomorrow, Sunday, 6/9/19 at 6:00 am (CST). It’s my understanding that all Born Free subscribers will receive an email when I open the thread. You can jump into the conversation anytime. I’ll stay active for the first 30-60 minutes, depending on participation.
You’ll come chat with me over coffee?
Then, we can take the rest of Sunday to relax and think….
I’ll revisit the thread on Monday morning for any conversation I might have missed.
Even if only an itsy-bitsy, tiny spider amount, come check it out. I hope we’ll weave a web of connection. :)
The free are curious and welcome new adventures.
You’ll receive a reminder email on Sunday morning.
Let’s share monsters and ideas.
