“How many brains do you need to be successful?” is somewhat of a trick question. You could argue that one well nourished, trained and focussed brain is enough, or that you need many brains to create a supportive team around yourself. Actually, from the individual perspective, to be living more meaningfully, fully and authentically you need three brains. Fortunately you already possess them.
Seriously, research over the past 100 years shows you already have three brains (neural networks): your cephalic (head), cardiac (heart) and enteric (gut). Your gut brain is actually the equivalent size and complexity of a cat brain — fascinating! Your three brains need to be working together, aligned and in the right sequence for any real, deep, generative change to occur.
If it sometimes feels like you are struggling to make changes as your head is battling with your heart’s desires, and you’re feeling sick to the stomach with the paralysing fear of getting it wrong, now you know why. You need a tune up. It’s also the reason a mind-body therapies may work beautifully for one person, but not another. And how do you get ‘tuned up’? The answer is mBraining and mBIT (multiple Brain Integration Techniques).
Grant Soosalu and Marvin Oka have combined medical research, neuro science, ancient wisdom and their own extensive experience as behavioral modelers to develop techniques to enable the integration to be able to occur smoothly. As they say in their book, mBraining: Using your multiple brains to do cool stuff‘, “the lastest findings in neuroscience lay out the map, behavioural modelling research provides us with the journey’s route, and mBIT and mBraining give us the means and tools to start travelling now.”
Your three separate brains operating in your body can end up antagonistic to each other, and have differing patterns, habits and learned behaviours. Knowing the core competencies of your brains enables you to leverage and communicate with and between your multiple brains in ways that expand your thinking, physical and emotional abilities so you truly can live to your potential. A certified mBIT coach can facilitate your transformation more easily than you can imagine.
Remember, this is not about being able to ‘do more’ in life, but rather live from your highest authentic expression and with greater wisdom in your decisions and actions.
