Follow the ten steps below! First guide your body into feeling more at ease. Now encourage your IC, MM and G* to go on vacation.
- Be aware of the thought and feeling brought to you by IC, MM and G*.
- Locate where they live in your body.
- Breathe aliveness into that location.
- Imagine exhaling all their energies out.
- Repeat until your body down regulates.
- Once down regulated, put up a stop sign in your mind’s eye when the monologue begins.
- Imagine IC, MM and G journeying to their favorite vacation spot to live.
- Use Be awake! Be alert! Do not be fooled by anyone (including IC, MM and G)! as a daily mantra to create awareness.
- Distract yourself with your favorite passion.
- Keep training IC, MM and G* to continue their vacation!
This exercise takes conscientious and pro-active mind training to shift and develop into new patterns. Keep practicing!
