Podcast #145 – Dealing with Disaster!

Welcome to Brain Software Podcast, Episode # 145. We are podcasting from the Hypnotic World Epicenter, Toronto Canada!  Today we talk all about what to do when disaster strikes, because it will…

What do you do when things go South?

Climb on the Hypnotic Crazy Train, because it’s all happening here! We ride the Iron Bastard for you!

But please let me know…

What on earth has occurred to rid Britain of that nice cozy feeling of peace we knew well?

THESE ARE STILL DAYS OF VICTORY!!!

We don’t want to scare you, but disaster will definitely hit at some point so let’s get ready, Scro…

Come out and study in our new classroom in downtown Toronto! Architecture of Hypnosis and the awesome Bob Burns event are filling up fast!

THINK TANK WORDS:    BORROWER   DESCENT   DOMAIN

  • Disaster will hit everyone! The death rate is still one per person…
  • Things can change suddenly…Nobody lives a charmed life – not even Chris!
  • When you get knocked off the rails, get back on the train and ride the Iron Bastard…
  • Financial and relationship issues…health problems…war…even winning a lottery can be a problem!
  • You need to have coping mechanisms and feel in control!
  • “That which does not kill me makes me stronger” – Nietzsche
  • We dissociate and feel external to the situation…
  • Enneagram 9s tend to dissociate easily…
  • When disaster hits, make no sudden decisions! Your critical faculty can be offline…
  • “If only…” is not a useful thing to focus on. Draw from resources instead!
  • What resources do you have? Friends, finances, information…?
  • Who is reliable and can be trusted? Chris is a good friend!
  • Figure out who is in your Inner Circle…You will need them some day.
  • Remember to ask for help! Mike went to a grief counsellor…
  • Be alone to process, but don’t be alone too much…
  • Journaling can be extremely helpful to sort out your thoughts
  • Don’t feel you have to bare your soul to the planet through social media. Some people are dicks.
  • Avoid toxic people! Avoid the people who are too positive and want you to just get over it…
  • There is a difference between being helpful and being intrusive!
  • Sometimes we need someone who won’t give advice but will just be there and listen to us…
  • Feel, name, and discharge the negative emotions! Use the Mandel 6 Step tapping…
  • Breathe and think to access the parasympathetic nervous system…
  • Don’t self-medicate! Alcohol, tobacco and firearms are best avoided…
  • Be positive! Focus on solutions, not the present state!
  • Remember to exercise! Even walking will help…
  • Avoid overwhelm, and don’t try to fix everything at once!
  • Wait for the lawn tree to bloom, and everything will change…
  • Beware of too many voices! They will only confuse you…
  • Give yourself time to heal. Things will change, but not instantly…
  • Watch out for negative identity statements, like I’m a survivor, I’m a winner, I overcome…
  • Find the music that supports you!
  • Draw from your spiritual roots, whatever they happen to be…
  • Never be afraid to seek professional help! You will get better…
  • Neither rush your recovery, nor wallow in despair and pain!

Empowering Questions: Ask yourself what preparations will I make now to ensure I have the resources I need when disaster strikes? How will you be there for others when they need the resources that you have to offer?

The Metafive: Bruce Gibbon and the Globe and Mail

Ending: Gory, gory Transylvania!
