You will first enter a deeply relaxed state, then reprogram your mind and rewire your brain to create a new, positive behavior to replace the old maladaptive one. As you listen to Dr. Miller’s soothing voice on a daily basis, this new behavior will begin to appear, and because it will make your life work better, it will soon become permanent.
- To weaken and eliminate maladaptive habits and addictions.
- To enhance other approaches to personal change, such as 12 Step programs.
- To learn a process of physical and mental relaxation.
- To reprogram your mind and rewire your brain, intentionally, with high-level wellness and success as the goal.
How it works:
Just as a dog or monkey can be trained to behave in certain ways, your mind and body (in essence, the “animal” part of you) have been trained to behave in certain ways by your early life experiences. And just as a computer can be reprogrammed, you can reprogram your mind and body to overcome urges, impulses, and addictions.
This program will show you how to enter a hypnotic-like state that will cause your unconscious mind to relax and become available to rescripting. As you visualize the new behavior you want to replace the old, maladaptive pattern, you will cause new neural networks to form. By practicing daily, these new behaviors become permanent.
Overcoming maladaptive behavior patterns, bad habits, addictions, including nail-biting, overeating, overspending, overdrinking, smoking, drug use (legal and illegal), gambling procrastination, impulsiveness, failing to establish positive relationships or exercise patterns, and other obsessive or compulsive behavior patterns.
Contraindications and Precautions
Although there are really no absolute contraindications for the use of this product, people who are severely psychotic or who do not want to at least try to follow the guidance offered will probably benefit little from listening. Listening is also not a substitute for needed medical care or psychiatric care for serious mental or emotional disturbance. In any undiagnosed potentially serious condition such as a head injury, again, there will not likely be any harm, but it would be wise to delay their use until an adequate diagnosis has been made.
Although no such problems have been reported, people with seizures of any kind, or neurological or with severe neurorespiratory disease, should check with their primary care practitioner for suggestions regarding the use of this program. Likewise, if you are undergoing psychotherapy, share your use of these with your therapist, as he/she may want to integrate this use with your treatment.
And, of course, if you are driving or using equipment that requires your full attention, do not close your eyes and do not listen to any program that you find causes you to become drowsy, distracted, or incapable of functioning safely. Programs designated as “Drivetime” should be used with these precautions in mind.
How To Use This Program:
First, you must know the behavior you want to change (e.g., overeating, overspending, overdrinking, smoking, and gambling – as well as more subtle ones as procrastination, impulsiveness, or failing to establish positive relationships or exercise patterns). Notice that there are usually certain situations, events, or environmental cues that trigger these behaviors. Commonly, feelings of loneliness, anger, or anxiety are the cues. Or it could be certain environments, relationships, or life challenges. It is best if you recognize what these cues are.
Next, decide what behavior you would like to replace it – relaxing, exercising, expressing yourself, etc..
Now you are ready to listen to this relaxing guided imagery. It will gently guide you into a relaxed state of mind and body – a state in which your unconscious mind becomes available to accept a new program. Then you will visualize or imagine yourself carrying out the new behavior instead of the old one. Although not everyone can actually “picture the scene” mentally, everyone can imagine what it would look like.
Then, as you imagine yourself having overcome the pattern and are using a new set of behaviors, you will let yourself feel a feeling of success, of happiness, of self-confidence. The more powerfully you can let yourself feel this, the more rapidly you will create the change you want. Your emotions are the fuel that causes the rewiring to take place.
Next, you will listen to this program and imagine success once or twice a day for a week or more – until you notice the old behavior pattern having less strength, and your ability to choose the new pattern increasing. You will then continue to listen until the old pattern disappears.
As you listen on a regular basis, you will actually rewire your brain – that is the neurons of your brain will form new connections to replace the older, maladaptive ones. Each time you listen you will strengthen these connections until they are preferred over the old ones.
Sometimes additional help may be needed for some maladaptive patterns, especially if they involve drugs, alcohol, or something else that directly affects the nervous system. A sponsor, partner, or support system is very valuable, and having this support increases success for most people. Reading about your addiction or other ways to increase your understanding may be valuable. This program will work well with all programs designed to help break bad habits.
For longstanding and deeply ingrained patterns the programs below offer additional help.
