THE BUTTERFLY AND TRANSFORMATION

THE BUTTERFLY AND TRANSFORMATION

Transformation can be thought of as lasting significant positive change. The Transformation journey is the process of undergoing that change. The caterpillar feels the urge to eat then gets tired and succumbs to the impulse to hang upside down and transformation begins with the development of the chrysalis. With the proper time and circumstances the process of transformation takes place. At the end of the transformation the beautiful and completely different butterfly emerges from essentially what was the caterpillar that broke down to goo and reinvented itself as the butterfly. Even what the butterfly wants is different from what the caterpillar wants. The willingness of the caterpillar to undergo the process of transformation was the catalyst for the transformation. As with us our willingness will ignite this journey of transformation and each step will become illuminated to us as we go. So resisting change because we can’t see the path clearly and our uncertainty holds us back from progressing in life. Just as you continue driving in the fog and the road becomes clear as you drive, have that same faith during your journey of transformation.

Change is inevitable. Change happens all around us. Much of this change is out of our control. Everything alive is always growing or dying. Which do you choose to be? What if we could gain some control by influencing the change that takes place in our mind. The science of change starts in our mind and tells us that change can be good but we have to take initiative to make positive changes in our lives. Changing our minds literally can change our emotions, which can change our actions and ultimately change the results we see playing out in our lives. We can take the reigns of change and propel ourselves forward instead of merely going along for the ride. With a Life Coach you can utilize a guide on your transformation journey to make sure you are on a path that is aligned with your true self and all areas of your life are working together to reach your goals and help you progress.

NEUROPLASTICITY, THE BRAIN AND CHANGE

Neuroplasticity is the brain’s ability to change and adapt based on experiences. Improving ones neuroplasticity can sharpen memory, concentration, and cognitive skills. It can help address anxiety and depression. One of the methods I utilize in my coaching, among others, is the science of Neuroplasticity to make lasting progress in our lives. The neural pathways and networks created by doing tasks over and over can be reorganized both in structure and function. We can therefore rewire patterns in our brain and create new networks to improve well-being. Our neural networks are either getting stronger or weaker. Old synapses which are the spaces between neurons that are no longer being used are eliminated during synaptic pruning. This is similar to if you don’t use it you lose it. Lets say you’re a whiz at typing and you don’t have to look at the keys to type. You have developed these neural pathways associated with typing that are so strong typing is second nature to you. You hardly have to think about it. But try something new for the first time and it will be more difficult because those neural networks have not been established.

1. Helps us learn new things
2. Helps with depression and anxiety
3. Helps us engage in activities more thoughtfully
4. Aids recovery from stroke and other traumatic brain injuries
