DNRS – PART 1 – INTRODUCTION

“There is no reality, only perception. Identify the filters through which you view the world.”
-Dr. Phil

What is Dynamic Neural Retraining System (DNRS)? Founded by Annie Hopper, a limbic system rehabilitation specialist, DNRS claims to be a neuroplasticity-based treatment method for chronic illnesses, some physical and some psychological.

If we break it down, neuroplasticity is basically the functioning of different networks in our brains. These networks allow the brain to grow (or shrink), organize, direct and redirect depending on the environment we’re in at any given time.

MINDFULNESS MEDITATION

“Mindfulness isn’t difficult. We just need to remember to do it.”
-Sharon Saltzberg

In a previous article, I had discussed how a state of mindfulness is not just a mental or psychological exercise. Done properly, it can also have a number of physical benefits as well. After writing that article, I got a couple of questions asking how exactly one would get started if they’ve never done so before. It’s my hope that this article answers some of those questions and serves as a basic introduction to mindfulness meditation.

VALIDATION – REVISED

An amazing thing happens when you stop seeking approval and validation: You find it.
-Mandy Hale

How necessary is it to for us to have validation?

In terms of needing it, not very necessary at all in most aspects of life. Wanting it, however, is a different story. As human beings, we want validation for everything we do. We like compliments. We like people agreeing with us.

MIRRORING

“Life is your mirror
What you see as your outside
Always comes from your inside.”
-Roxana Jones

There is a term in psychology that is not utilized or alluded to as often as some other terms and elements. Nevertheless, everyone does it at some point, either consciously or unconsciously (in all probability, more the latter than the former). Chances are that you’ve done it at some point as well.

It’s called mirroring.

"For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone."

Audrey Hepburn

Take your potential and make it reality
