Have you ever said or did something that later came back to bite you in the butt? I know I have. When I was younger I tried to sweep those moments under the rug or downplay them because not being perfect and being caught in the act of not being perfect was too embarrassing. Now in my less-than-glorious moments, I try to not run, hide, or sweep the event under the rug. Instead, I try to stop, look inside, and discover the root or underlying belief or perception behind my behavior, and then change that. This is not a chastising moment, but rather one of peaceful and loving acceptance of myself.
How does stopping and going inside help me discover the underlying cause or belief? Slowing down and observing each step helps me to shift from my reactive, unconscious mind to my conscious, creative problem-solving mind. In the process, I gain the ability to see the cause of my problem, and also create a new and more appropriate response. This is what Dr. Bruce Lipton is talking about when he said, “…When you change a belief or perception you can change your whole life…”
I often turn to the simple ICWIB art activities, which require no artistic training or skill because they are a fun and easy way to discover the underlying belief or perception behind behavior, and then change it. With this in mind, I invite you to explore some of the FREE ICWIB art activities and videos.
Since the ICWIB program has repeatedly demonstrated its ability to help even young children reduce stress, release bottled-up emotions, resolve internal conflict, and learn to self-regulate and place their mind in a learning ready state, I 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.
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….”
