Four Weeks of Integration

It's hard to believe it's already been four weeks, almost five, since my last session at Neuro-Strength. People have emailed asking if it's still working and I can say without a doubt that yes, it's still working. I continue to feel like a new person. New attitudes about things. I see life, people and situations differently. Something that's cool is that throughout the sessions, they play a sound for you. A sound that ... Read More

Two Weeks of Integrating

My 10 sessions are over and I'm into the second week of integrating all that my brain experienced. I'm still feeling really good. Clear headed, grounded, safe, calm and very happy. Sounds too good to be true doesn't it? But it's all true and NO, THEY AREN'T PAYING ME TO SAY THESE THINGS. That's for you non-trusting souls who don't believe life can be like this. I've wondered if a crisis came along how my mind would ... Read More

11/27/10 update on BST

Yesterday was a great day to measure any difference in my brain and how I'm responding to life. I worked at the Cottage House which is a very popular vintage shop here in the Twin Cities. Three days a month I cashier at this adorable business and for the most part, absolutely love it. I say for the most part simply because it is incredibly successful and that means we get bombarded with shoppers. In months past, ... Read More

My 10th Visit Today

This morning I had my 10th session at Neuro-Strength in Bloomington and I have to say this technology really worked well for me. Two weeks ago I began this journey, as you've read in the last few blogs and it's been a really cool experience to say the least. We read through my goals that I filled out at the beginning of the training and I can honestly say I achieved every one of the goals with flying colors. ... Read More

#5 I woke up feeling incredible

This morning when I woke up, I felt elated and so happy that I could have hugged the whole world and still had more left to give. It was a wonderful feeling. It scared me just a bit because it felt a little like the manic part of depression (I've been labeled manic depressive or bi-polar). I had Andrea Bocelli blasting on the cd player and felt like I could jet propel myself over to my morning appointment, but I took the ... Read More

#4 Quite a Work-Out

Remember how your body feels after you've worked out for the first time in a long time? That's how my brain felt today after session 6. Like I had been at the brain gym all morning. They do these different protocols each time you have a session and today really felt like it stretched my brain in places it hadn't gone before. It was an odd sensation. I actually felt a bit loopy. Giggly. After an hour break, I went ... Read More

#3 Continuation

The thought occurred to me tonight that you might be wondering if I'm seeing any changes in my eating patterns or physical changes in general. The answers are yes and yes. The program asks you to eat more protein and drink more water and I've found that I don't have to consciously make myself do either. It's just happening naturally. I crave protein for breakfast, lunch and dinner and the other thing that is most ... Read More

#3 of the journey

Wow. This is quite a present I've given myself. I had my 5th and 6th treatments today. When I went in this morning, I had a pretty bad headache and worried for a bit that these treatments were making the headaches worse, but today's sessions completely took the headache away. I had so many awarenesses today and am feeling very free tonight. What's making this fascinating is the memories that have flooded my ... Read More

The journey begins…

If you've read any of my books you know that I'm open about sharing my journey and therefore know alot of what I'm about to share with you. I share this from a detached perspective because I've been through all the tears, anger and rage in therapy and groups. I'm sharing it so that you'll understand the patterns going on in my brain. I grew up with two alcoholic parents (who both got into recovery in my teens). I was ... Read More

Starting a Journey

About two weeks I read an article in People magazine about Wynonna Judd losing 55 lbs and of course was curious as to how she did it. I was pleasantly surprised to see that it wasn't an advertisement for another diet program, but something that felt REAL to me. I had one of those experiences where you read or hear something you just KNOW it's truth. She did this program called Brain State Conditioning. It has to do ... Read More
