The Three M's for Well-Being | Emily Fletcher



let's talk about the three M's what are the three M's mindfulness meditation and manifesting and these three M's have really become the trifecta that is the Ziva technique which is what I teach so mindfulness I would define as the art of bringing your awareness into the present moment beautiful right practice that right now all right and let's just do it right just close your eyes you don't even have to put your pens down just close your eyes just take a big delicious inhale and exhale so good and this time as you inhale I want you to actually feel the breath as it enters your nostrils and as you exhale I want you to feel the tactile sensation as it exits your nostrils really good and open your eyes so that was like a mindful moment right that was one mindful breath where we brought our awareness into this moment is the right now so anytime you are directing your focus anytime you are doing a guided visualization any time you're focusing on your breath counting your breath visualizing your chakras imagining a waterfall I would put that in the category of mindfulness right waking state left brain practice and you're directing your focus now this is an interesting time to be alive because neuroscience is catching up to what these Indian dudes have been saying for 6,000 years and now not only can we prove that meditation is good for you but now we can start to prove how different styles of meditation are impacting the brain differently so in mindfulness where you're directing your focus a smaller part of the brain lights up very very bright right which is sort of indicative to how mindfulness is helpful to you if you practice mindfulness you notice that you get very good at like focusing on tasks you're very good at like putting one foot in front of the other and being very present where you are right here right now let's talk about the second M meditation and I want for a moment I'm gonna ask you guys a favor and I want you to take everything you've ever heard about meditation and I want you to throw it out the window just for these next few minutes that we have together meditation as I would define it is basically when we're accessing a verifiable fourth state of consciousness so different than waking different than sleeping and different than dreaming when you start to cultivate a meditation practice you actually move into a fourth state of consciousness okay and in this state of consciousness the right and left hemispheres the brains are to function in unison and this is important because your left brain is in charge of the past in the future and your right brain is in charge of the right now left brain critical thoughts right brain creative left brain I suck I suck I suck up in a dialogue with Kathy in my face right brain [Applause] okay so we actually want to have both of these guys functioning at the same time right brain and left brain so when we start meditating we're accessing this fourth state of consciousness and when I say that it's like a verifiable state of consciousness what I mean is that if you were to hook your brain up to an EEG machine which is electroencephalography hardware there are eight classic points on the right brain and eight classic points on the left and in waking sleeping and dreaming states of consciousness the right and left hemispheres of the brain are functioning separately but in this fourth state of consciousness all sixteen leads of EEG rise and fall in unison and that starts to increase something called neuroplasticity and neuroplasticity is the brain's ability to change itself it also increases something called neurogenesis which is the brain's ability to generate new brain cells okay and that's happening because you replace a whole brain cohesion happening when you're doing this practice mindfulness very good at dealing with their stress in the now meditation very good at dealing with your stress from the past now let's move into the third M&M manifesting as consciously creating a life you love it's amazing to me how many people I meet in a day and I asked them what you know what's your dream job how much money do you want to be making what do you want your relationship to look like how do you want your relationship with your body to feel and they're just like I just I'm not making it funny right now and my husband doesn't understand any the sub and so it's like they immediately go to the complaint when I ask them what they want it's like they can't even articulate it without starting with the complaint but what I have found is that the combination of meditation and manifesting is infinitely more powerful than either one alone right because you can meditate all day but if you're not clear about what it is that you want that it's very hard for nature to give it to you and conversely you could make vision boards all day long but if you don't believe that you deserve your dream it ain't comin you you
