Chunking UP and The Ecology of Congruence
Yo! Transformation Nation!
Today we are exploring the NLP concept of Chunking up and making sure your decisions for your work and relationships are CONGRUENT.
This has been an issue for me as well as many, many of my friends and clients.
How do you discover the “one thing” that truly satisfies your soul? When you love to do a bunch of things… (that all seem unrelated).
What is the “one thing” that just makes everything make sense and brings all of YOU under the laser beam focus that empowers you to make rapid progress, consistently AND sustainably?
If you “chunk up” you are going more big picture. If you “chunk down” you get deeper into the details.
Now if you’re like me, you have a bunch of areas of interest in your life, you may have a ton of different talents and abilities that you love to explore and expand. And that’s great!
The challenge comes when we attempt to find a way to make a living that honors many aspects of ourselves and talents at the same time that it delivers real, actual VALUE to SOMEONE who will pay you money for the RESULT you provide for THEM.
(BTW I’m working on a course about MONEY and RIGHT LIVELIHOOD that goes deep with this).
Those of you on my lists who have been reading my emails for awhile have literally seen in action my own process for “chunking up”.
Back in July I started asking,
“How can I combine and integrate all the areas of expertise I’ve developed in my private NLP/Hypnosis practice over the years into ONE congruent, ecological website?
The result is HonestHypnosis.com
Instead of a website for each and every course (which was driving me crazy), I have one site where ALL my courses can be accessed in one handy place…with one handy user name and password. scroll up to the top menu and check out “Programs”
BOOM! Shift! (and a lot of work for my wordpress guru Michael Guerin LOL)
Lately I’ve been asking THESE questions:
“How can I integrate my music, my storytelling, my visual art, my insatiable curiosity for personal development and peak performance into my love of Hypnosis, NLP, EFT, Timeline Therapy, Energy Healing and “NON-Religious Spirituality?”
“How can I do one single email and blog post each day that gracefully honors my gifts and talents and personal transformation journey in a way that supports, encourages and inspires YOURS?”
In the process of asking these questions it was clear to me that I can no longer separate out my music from my transformation work.
So today we have a mind mastery tip and challenge about “chunking” AND a song that supports the concept and acts as an instant, “Wide Awake” hypnosis session.
So here’s the NLP “Mind Mastery” idea:
To chunk up to a bigger picture that includes all the stuff you love and desire in your “one thing” you simply ask
“What is this an example of?”
To illustrate simply – Think about a car. Now ask, “What is this an example of?” And you might get, “vehicle”…
then ask “What is a vehicle an example of?” and you might get “Transportation”
Then ask, “What is transportation an example of?” And you might get “movement”.
Of Course there’s a point where you’ve chunked up enough… and that’s where you are chunked high enough so that everything you love doing is an example of a single, focused, higher level of thinking…
So I asked myself, “what is my music an example of?”
And “what are all these cool mind mastery techniques examples of?”
I got HYPNOSIS… what is hypnosis an example of? and I got, Transformational Communication…
What this is all about, what I am all about is communicating to myself and others in a way that positively transforms our challenges and struggles into an empowered experience of being fully alive.
Boom! Shazaam! Oya moochka hannah hee knee!
Now I can work on whatever moves me every day and STILL be on target, on track on focus.
Does that make sense? Do you see it clearly? How does that feel? Does that ring a bell?
For years I struggled with “Do I do MUSIC?” or “Do I Do NLP/Hypnosis?” But suddenly it is brilliantly clear.
IT IS ALL THE SAME THING! Transformational Communication!
And all of a sudden…. Ahhhhh. Congruence. Everything is in alignment. It is suddenly ECOLOGICAL for me to connect with you daily and share a song AND and idea…. through the written word, the spoken word, the SUNG word…. and what are “words” examples of? Communication!
And if the words and ideas are about transforming your life, then we have my dear friend, TRANSFORMATIONAL COMMUNICATION.
The hound that chases two rabbits catches none! Focus is important, but if you chunk high enough your “focus” can include multiple “rabbits” – YOUR multiple talents, abilities and interests.
So your assignment today (should you choose to accept it) is to “Chunk up” in your life and see what you get.
As always I am happy to answer your questions so feel free to Contact Me
And the soundtrack for that transformational process today is Rise Up And Dance
This “wide awake hypnosis session in song” was written at a pivotal moment at the very beginning of my transformation adventure. And no matter where YOU are on your journey there is a powerful message in the song that can ignite and confirm your passionate power to create change, healing and transformation in your own life.
I will see YOU on the inside!
p.s. I’m heading down to the recording studio today to record some more of the new tunes that are DELUGING me. I still have a ton of new videos to share with you, and a bunch of new courses in progress so YOU will hear about those soon…
