When we are young, our minds are predominantly in a theta brain state—copy and paste. This allows us to learn an immense amount of information quickly as we adapt to new environments. Unfortunately, we don’t have the capacity to question the appropriateness of what we are learning during these early and formative years. This means we can take on beliefs, perceptions, and behaviors that are ineffective and produce unwanted results.
My mother was an extremely reactionary and destructive person, even though in her true nature she had a heart of gold. When she was stressed she would blame and attack others—saying and doing very harmful things. As a young child, I became very fearful of others, and also acquired the same knee-jerk response pattern. When I became aware of this pattern and the negative impact it was having on my life, I began to watch and observe myself in stressful situations. I came to understand that if I could remain calm and centered in a triggering situation, I also had the capacity to respond differently and create a new pattern for future interaction, as well.
While process was uncomfortable in the beginning, over time I was able to let go of the learned behavior with the simple act of being conscious and present in the moment. By remembering that her behavior was unconscious and learned from others helped me be more compassionate, and not take her behavior so personally. In retrospect, I can see that accomplishing these small steps helped me to break the chain of harm.
The ICWIB activities are a great way to you gain a deeper sense of self and change any ineffective patterns and behavior you may have. With this in mind, I invite you to explore some of the ICWIB art activities and videos for FREE.
Since the ICWIB program has repeatedly demonstrated its ability to help even young children reduce stress, resolve internal conflict, self-regulate and place their mind in a learning ready state, we think it should be available to any teacher who wants to actively use it in his or her classroom regardless of their ability to pay for the training.
With this in mind, on March 1, 2018, we launched a crowd funding campaign to raise money so we can offer the ICWIB training to 150 teachers preschool and elementary school teachers in the upcoming academic year for FREE.
Would you like to help make this a reality?
In a recent interview Dr. Bruce Lipton said: “…I see this as an opportunity (raising money to train teachers) for all of us to get together and realize we can change the world by changing the programming of our children. If each of us contributes just a small amount of money-the amount of money we would have bought that cappuccino, we can change the world! We must change behavior and the fastest and easiest way to do that today is through ICWIB programming. This is why I wholeheartedly endorse and support Nancy Marie in this effort, because it is not a personal effort, it a global effort. This is a global change for peace and harmony on this planet….”
