The International Association’s logo represents our approach to improving your Health and Learning skills – helping you to find your “your inner keys”
So often we look outside ourselves for solutions to our problems. We take a medicine to relieve our symptoms, learn a strategy to help cope with learning difficulties, or seek a diagnosis to explain what is happening.
We often forget that we may hold the keys to our recovery and success. Our body has it’s own pharmacy if we can find the key to producing the right chemicals. Learning to visualise words is an essential skill for literacy and may be our key to overcoming dyslexia. A diagnosis may be necessary for us to be identified, but at the same time puts us in a box that it is very difficult to get out of.
However, when our unconscious mind holds the key as to what has caused our problem, how to correct it and so set us on the road to recovery, all we need is to discover how to access this knowledge and release anything that is blocking us.
“Your guidance has been absolutely brilliant – I’m over ME and no longer suffer its symptoms. I’m continuing to work with my energy and am leading the life I want.”
We often misunderstand or underestimate just how much we can do by changing our mindset. As an example a recent BBC documentary ‘The Young Ones’ took a group of celebrities in their late 70s and early 80s, who were in poor physical and mental shape, back to living in 1975 for a week. Extensive scientific testing was carried out at the beginning and end to determine their biological age. By the end of just one week, some had turned the clock back by 20 years; remarkable physical and mental changes were measured.
If changing the way we think can have such a profound effect on our aging process – then why not on other aspects of our health and life? The ramifications are huge. Changing the way we think is key to producing the changes we want in our lives.
The field of Psychoneuroimmunology (PNI) has established the link between our thoughts, emotions and our immune system. There are many other studies and observations which demonstrate the mind-body link. The IHL research projects will be building on these to demonstrate the truly holistic way in which all work. This will enable us to develop and promote the practical tools for “how to” achieve the changes that we all want in our lives.
A powerful key – Our own imagination
“Imagination is more important than knowledge, for knowledge is limited while imagination embraces the entire world.”
Our imagination is so powerful. It determines, for example, how we see the world, what happens to us in our lives, our emotions, our health and the way we approach learning.
Although our imagination can cause us problems, it also offers the key to producing the changes we need to live the lives we want and deserve.
Think of your unconscious mind as a 7 to 9 year old child who wants to be our best friend. Everything it does is because it believes it is of benefit to us – sometimes this doesn’t match what out conscious mind wants. Using our imagination and creating pictures we want in our “mind’s eye” is the best way of communicating with our unconscious mind in a positive way to produce the results you want rather than those you don’t want.
The biggest challenge many of us face is to believe that change can be this simple – and it really does work.
