The minds default is “on”

The mind’s default is “on”, a constant pressure or seeking if you will.  Accompanying this is a critical appraisal of all it encounters.  The pressure this creates within us is seldom released or even allowed to open at all.  Over time this creates even more pressure.  The art of feeling, of allowing experiences to evolve without being judged, is part of the art of the Wonder Method.  It is about learning to BE without constantly adding more pressure.  We learn to be part of the ever-expanding experience of sensation and knowledge.  This knowledge is there when we are no longer in conflict with ourselves.  Experience your sensations, it is always worth it.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott 

As we unwind our fears

As we unwind our fears and limitations through feeling our feelings, the mind naturally lightens the intensity of its focus and we begin to experience quiet and a sense of internal motion. This motion happens within us, around us and through us. It is a naturally occurring part of our make-up. We are flow and it is always there to nurture us. Enjoy ~Alain & Jody Herriott

When life upsets us, the mind wants to solve

When life upsets us, the mind wants to “solve” what it considers a problem.  In the process we are taken on a mental trip of upset, drama and unsolvable conundrums. The feelings that are below the surface of the mind’s drama are actually a better tool to unlock the door of the problem and bring us balance.  Again, these feelings are not a problem to solve, they are an experience that should be allowed to unfold within us. As we feel our feelings and they unfold we find ourselves becoming balanced; we become completed in such a pleasant and vast way it defies description.  Enjoy the journey.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott 

Life is a choice. Good statement,

Life is a choice. Good statement, we have heard it so very many times.  How many of us actually live life in this way?  As we travel the path of experiencing our feelings we come to realize that we have choices.  One choice may be to enjoy each aspect of life, each little nuance.  Some will say that is too much, I can’t do that.  Of course this a choice.  We make them every day.  In doing so we may lead ourselves down the path of unfolding life, much like a flower, or we may starve ourselves by not letting ourselves feel.  We encourage you to feel.  The mind is already over-trained; trust it to simply work.  Trust your feelings as well, as they are your missing link to being.  All you have to do is choose to do so.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

The mind is about attachment

The mind is about attachment to outcome and is constantly in expectation.  It is drawn to drama and circular thinking and upset for it is always searching for something to control.  In effect the mind causes separation within us because of its constant reaching. Using the body to experience the feelings within us reunites us.  The more this occurs the more we come back into balance.  This harmony of body and mind is truly the harmony that is total. Others will call it many different names: centered, presence, even enlightenment.  Regardless of the word, balance is now a way of life.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

We are taught from an early age to achieve

We are taught from an early age to achieve, to push, to beat others.  This is probably the #1 thing in our way in order to know ourselves.  All the striving takes us out of the moment and places us firmly in the mind, separated from our essential self. People believe that striving is necessary in order to achieve our goals.  This simply isn’t true. Instead we find harmony is born, which makes everything possible.  It is easy enough to create balance in our lives; all we need to do is be willing to feel the sensations within us. T  his will change our focus from pushing to opening and the rest simply unfolds.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

The body is every bit as intelligent as the mind

The body is every bit as intelligent as the mind. Its communication is subtle, gentle, and while it may appear difficult to understand, its language is sensation. The mind is constantly pushing on these subtle sensations. The mind hides this subtlety beneath its over activity. When we allow ourselves to be aware of the subtle sensations and let them surface, the mind begins to relax. As this occurs, everything comes into harmony, and being is the result. ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Presence don’t leave home without it

Presence— don’t leave home without it. Funny phrase eh? Most of us go out the door to begin the day and are leading with our heads. We forget about our bodies and the associated sensations as they seem too subtle or too much trouble to pay attention to. In reality we really should allow ourselves to feel throughout our bodies as the day begins. In this way we arrive at our destination fully integrated. We are more effective in the work place and we connect with our coworkers as the day unfolds in balance and harmony. ~Alain & Jody Herriott

We live in two worlds, the wold of mind and of feeling

We live in two worlds, the world of mind and the world of feeling. When we let the world of feeling blend with the world of mind we experience the world as a totality. A wholeness is here. It is not a desperate flick of fulfillment but a deeply supportive and nurturing experience. Through feeling we experience wholeness, without it we are only a shell of a being. When we have the integration of body and mind then the two worlds blend and we awaken to a quiet mind and experience an unlimited self. ~Alain & Jody Herriott

The mind is like a kid in a candy store

The mind is like a kid in a candy store. It is constantly searching, even striving for more.  Always eating and never resting; it doesn’t even realize it is the source of its problems.  The mind has been taught to ignore the feelings inside its feedback system, the human body.  However, these feelings inside us are the entry point to balance.  When we are allowed to experience our feelings at the signal level, the sensation level, we achieve balance.  The mind learns, with a bit of practice, that feeling is what sets us free and shows us the path to bliss. ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Thought for the Week

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK

We are often asked just what is The Wonder Method?  Probably first and foremost it is a subtle, simple, yet counter intuitive way to become incredibly present.  Other names for this might be “awake”, “grounded”, or “balanced” within ourselves.  Beyond this it is a model that can be used to offer healing to others and to unwind limiting beliefs and experiences until calm and balance are experienced within us.  If we take it further it is also a way to step beyond the common view of reality or Maya and begin to live in satisfaction and joy.  This all starts with feeling at the sensation level and everything evolves from there.  We encourage you to feel; it is wonderfully satisfying. ~ Alain & Jody Herriott
