WELCOME TO AUGUST! THE THEME IS SUBCONSCIOUS PATTERNING


Much of how we view and interact with the world lies outside of our conscious processing. Our brains were wired to form core beliefs at an early age, when we were navigating through life at a much lower brain wave frequency than we do as adults. These beliefs, hidden in our subconscious mind (a lower brain wave frequency), form the main lens of how we view the world and our place in it.

In our adult life, we can access this lower brain wave frequency through activities like meditation, hypnosis, restorative yoga, sound healing, yoga nidra, etc. I hope that the Portal offers you tangible ways to explore the unique layers of your subconscious mind.

In gratitude, Amanda

MEDITATION

SUBCONSCIOUS PATTERNING MEDITATIONS:

Subconscious Patterning Meditation w/ Amanda Leaveck

1) Set an intention: I am open to learning more about my beliefs around (insert topic).” Examples include: money, relationships, career, traveling, etc. OR Ask a question.  For example, ‘What were my parents belief patterns around money?  What childhood memories are tied to my fear of abandonment?‘ 

2) Hold that topic in your mental awareness and take three breaths, repeating your intention or question each time. Press ‘play’ and start your meditation.

3) When the meditation is complete, your brain wave frequency will be at a lower state. Give yourself a few minutes to journal about the question you posed, stream of consciousness style.  Your writing doesn’t even need to make sense – just go for it! Don’t think too hard, let your pen move freely! You can analyze what you write later – remember, very little of our analytical mind exists in on our subconscious state.

Subconscious Patterning Meditation w/ Nkechi Njaka, Msc.

This practice is designed to meet ourself and explore our sense of connection and our sense of community. We explore our ability to let go and all the feelings of discomfort that might be associated with that. Participants are encouraged to have a journal with them and will be asked at 3 different points in the practice to reflect on an inquiry presented in the session
