Training of intelligent perception
Training is a central component in the life of a therapist with a mental perception, insight. We studied concepts, brain bases and Mindsight exercises as an ability in the training process. In the same way, training of learning skills or skills can be used with clients; to help them become more connected with their brains, life-resistant and empathic in their relationships with others. Now we have the opportunity to review the basic mechanisms by which training of the mind takes us deeper into how mechanisms and training are integrated into our lives and our work. We also have the opportunity to explore how the mind can be used to identify brain structures and how these are associated with neural circuits through mental training. We use the mind in this way to reconnect the brain structures. We must be aware that we can learn the lesson learned from others, because of their well-being.
Training includes the power of experience that shows us how we can change the structure of the human brain. Through awareness and focussed concentration, we can shape the flow of energy and information through certain paths. When this process occurs, our mental process control in the brain involves activities in certain patterns of neuro-connections that alter brain connections. This neuroplasticity process involves at least three components; Strengthening and establishing synaptic links, stimulating the growth of new neurons and strengthening the envelope, and increasing the speed of neuronal electric impulses.
Aspects of neuroplasticity are synaptogenesis (development of synapses and modulation), neurogenesis (neuronal development) and myelinogenesis (myelin envelope development). They all contribute to the state of the neural networks to become a long-term solution and an element of a modified neural architecture. Synchronous switching neurons connect to the extent that they are combined into the neural trunk of the cells. The trainings we talked about earlier are to a large extent contributing to the support of neurons to strengthen the myelin envelope.
A key fact
Mielin is an electrically insulating substance that usually surrounds only nerve cell aksons. It is essential for the proper functioning of the nervous system. It grows out of neuroglobulins. The formation of the myelin envelope is called myelinization. Mielin up to 100 times increases the speed of electro-chemical transmissions. When the rest of the neurons need to rest, myelin reduces this rest period (30 times) - this is called a refractive period. The result is that we imagine; if you and I are inactive and we had good training, our communication and connectivity is 3000 times better; so we are 3000 times faster than connected neurons without the "added myelin". This means that such neurons in the brain are up to 3000 times more effective than others.
How to increase myelin in the brain?
What are training and how do myelin activate my brain?
We must learn to master the course, the flow of energy and information, which in the course of hours of strenuous training leads us to the fact that myelin in the brain changes certain areas of the brain. Myelin studies reveal that myelin training in envelopes strengthens, and synaptic connections are strengthened.
Mielin was supposed to be white, so he was sometimes called "white matter" in the brain. We also learned that new synaptic links are being created due to simultaneous firing of neurons. This is the basis of the formation of memory.
Daniel Coyle (2009) presents several fascinated views on neuroplasticity. In The Talent Code, Coyle talks about myelin in correlation with the ability of the mind's perception. During his work, several individuals interviewed, including Robert Bjork (mentor D. Siegel at Stanford University), quoting: "Things that appear to be obstacles are in the long run (for) desired." So we discover the principle of our training.
Coyle uses a term that can greatly help us in our research of training - Deep practice or drill depth. Training looks like exploring a dark and unknown room. Let's start slowly and in the dark we may run into some kind of furniture. Let's stop, think and start again. Slowly and with some pain we explore space; over and over again, we expect errors and thus spread the insight into the dark room. We build a mental map until after the dark room we move quickly and intuitively.
The essence of deep exercise - the exercise of depth is that in our case we immerse ourselves in the experience - awareness of the flow of energy and information. While we dive into a dark room in Coy's analogy, we must create a map of our territory; We explore the territory for the purpose of stabilizing our mind sensors, openness, objectivity and observation. The legs of this treacherous are mental skills developed by myelin envelopes, especially in the frontal areas. Through these skills, we learn to move around in space - the dark room of our mind, with more intuition and efficiency. While continuing with a drill of depth, we learn the language of our mind, energy and information is felt in finer details and depth, and with greater accuracy.
In the beginning, we and our clients especially find it hard to work, but Coyle says about the development of the skill that more than in a certain case, which we find hard to work on, we will get better, faster and more accurate responses during training. Effort is essential and crucial for the development of the right ability of mental perception or Mindsight - mental insight. Fighting is not an option, but a neurological necessity, insofar as we want to develop the perception of mind at the "par excellence" level. We must make mistakes and be alert to them. We need to learn our neural circuit - mechanisms, and in these circuits we must maintain firing, which is possible through training. In them, we see the constant maintenance of myelin as a living tissue - white matter.
There is no option
The whole idea of internal training or the idea of a depth of practice is that we are approaching errors so that we can not run away from them. In Coyle's view, in the "litter" talents, for example, musical, sports, chess, mathematical geniality of this; these people have a different approach to failure. Exercise of depth is built on paradox, warfare in certain cases, allows us to make mistakes: "Deep practice is a bulit on a paradox: strugguling is certain target ways - allowing yourself to make mistakes." In other words, in trying to experience the experience, we try to stop, allow the error, and then fix it. For example, as if you were walking down the ice cliff. One more time, and in the next step, they would scroll back - with some effort to reach the top.
The therapeutist with mental perception has several stages, among which it can move. The trick is that in terms of our abilities we choose a higher goal and then we try to achieve it. This thesis is related to the theme of the proximal development zone (Wygotski). So, what can we do ourselves and what can we do if someone tries to help us in the end? Coyle points out that the greatest geniuses were born in traineeships, with teachers, leaders and mentors. Diving into these thoughts, as therapists, reflects the potential for us to act in such a way, in the sense of monitoring - escorts, such as when, for example, the client turns into relationships or mental skills such as, for example, to deal with trauma or triggers of certain phobias.
What neural circuits are needed to develop the Mindsight (Mindsight) and which areas of the brain are in operation while experiencing the flow of energy and information?
Resonance or oscillation of our neural circuit (neural network or the flow of electro-chemical impulses) is at the heart of our development of mental maps and the subsequent modeling of our mental awareness of well-being. To deepen this, we now present exercises or training for the mind's perception and try to find the links between the exercises and the physical side of the neurological circuit and the tension in it. While we are dealing with them, let us not forget the mental perception - the insight and creation of the mind maps or structures, because they are the cornerstone of the triangle: well-being, empathic relations and the collected mind. We must learn to feel and control energy and information, within our experience in relations with others. We need to learn a neural circuit - in this way, we should sharpen our tricepium - to see the energy-information flow within the triangle of well-being.
Step: The process of stabilizing the mental perception (Mindsight lens)
The stabilizer is responsible for the tripod; openness, observation and objectivity. We are dealing with errors, watching the struggle and discovering what led us to the error. In this, I concentrate on breathing, when to lose focus and concentration on breathing and when it is regenerated. It is possible that this will trigger other neuronal circuits, such as the mirror neuron system, which is part of the resonant circuit (the oscillation of our intelligent perception). We need awareness of awareness at the same time, and we need to monitor when the focus is shifted elsewhere and how to regain our focus on breathing. At this point, we are making an important step towards creating a daily routine of mental fitness in support of our training program for brain and neuronal circuits.
2. Step: After stabilization
After stabilization of "mindsight" circuits (circuits of intelligent perception), we take a step forward. We need to be aware of the points on which we feel we have progressed. As Coyle says, now we are ready to distinguish alloy wheels on rims and hubs. We move from an important awareness of awareness (meta-awareness) to the focus of focus (we are paying attention to our attention) in order to distinguish between the type of architecture of the dark room of our mind. We will still be bumping into furniture, which is also necessary. The goal is concentration - the focus on errors, and also the maintenance of tension in our neural circuits of the mind's perception.
Exercise of the depth
Exercise depth helps us to develop adherence to the edge and to develop the level of our concentration. Neuroplastic concepts could describe, at this point, the elimination of chemicals, such as a brain-derived neurotropic factor (BDNF) or acetylcholine, which is essentially responsible for neural connections. In the neuronal pulses, myelin waves the active cells. When we learn the depth of the depth, we essentially mie-line the resonant circuits of the mind-sensing circuit (mindsight circuit). By increasing the level of concentration and focusing on our mistakes and awareness of awareness, the strength of myelinization is strengthened. Thus, during the training of abilities, we become experts in the mind's perception.
When we are sure that our neural circuits are set up and turned on, then mindsight training can begin to teach others. The goals will be the same, both for the client and for the therapist, both want promotion (in terms of client progression).
Other courses can also help with training. After Farbe we distinguish: sensation-observation-conceived concepts and non-conceptual knowledge (SOCK). Another course would be to deal with traumas; Curiosity-Openness-Acceptance-Love (COAL), in this flow we are currently connected with our past.
How do the stages of the drilled depth of practice integrate and use as interventions?
The prefrontal part of the brain consists of various parts that contain body-regulating functions for the purpose of communication, emotional balance, response, modulation of fears, insight, empathy, morality and intuition. In the energy-information flow we can detect all six feelings. The concentration focus increases the activity in thin layers, which leads to the pulses from the subcortic regions upwards. The emotional balance focuses on the internal affective states of an individual who bring meaning, understanding and vitality to his life.
Too excitement in life brings chaos, and lack of excitement means too little energy and life can become impoverished, depressed, and rigid. Now use the circuit mechanism that we have trained. Here we learn modeling of states and their modifications. Acceptance and modeling of inner states is the essence of the capacity of the mind's perception, which leads to self-regulation.
The action of perception and focus on breathing, loss of focus and focus recovery (again and again), this is basic training. Awareness of breathing is one of the key legs of a tripod, which helps us to strengthen and cultivate our objectivity.
We can study patterns, facts and complex ideas. The concept of the exercise allows us freedom and insight into ourselves and also in the world in which we live. Quickly activate folders for morality and empathy. Morality includes our awareness that we are part of some kind of bigger role to contribute to the well-being - the state of others, not from our own private benefits, but because of what others are like. For example, as the heart cell does not differ much from the kidney, the skin cell does not dominate the muscle, but cooperates and builds parts of our body, which are also.
