What Motivates You

Posted by: | Comments (0)

In this 10mn RSA Animation, Dan Pink explores what REALLY motivates us in the 21st Century. Studies have shown that the carrot and stick (work more – earn more) works well when it come to purely physical work. However, with anything above basic cognitive skills, the relationships between money and effort become inversely proportional. In this context, HOW do you motivate people?

Uncover Your Hidden Talents

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Astro Coach Academy is an Astro eCourse for coaches and anyone eager to learn tools to know oneself better & become more effective.

Psychological astrology looks at a zodiac chart to discover potentials, talents and challenges that are hidden in our psyche or, to use a NLP & Hypnosis vocabulary, our unconscious mind.

Unlike traditional astrology, psychological astrology does not make predictions. Why? because we believe that to a large degree, we create our own reality, and therefore have the power to influence the unfolding of our own life.

How? By constantly filtering our experience through our own unconscious maps. Some information is deleted, some information is allowed to come in and register in our consciousness. The choice is made outside of our awareness. The meaning we give to the world, to people and situations results from this filtering process.

The information that is allowed in becomes our ‘focus’.

Predictions, when made by someone we consider as an authority in their field, whom we believe and respect (such as an astrologer), can often become self fulfilling prophecies. How? By installing what has been predicted as a point of focus for our conscious awareness. Once this is done, we literally look for it outside of us.

Example: Ms. X goes to see a fortune teller she considers an expert in his field (i.e. “he knows something that I don’t”). Every time she went to him he told her something that ‘was true’. This time, after a careful examination, he tells her that she should be careful this year, because there is a high probability that she will have an accident. Where does her mind focus after she comes out of her session? What is she unconsciously looking for in the outside world?

From our point of view, an astrological chart only shows psychological frames, not real life events. When used skilfully and within the context of a dialogue rather than by imposing knowledge onto a person, the chart becomes an invaluable tool to assist someone (or ourselves) to uncover part of our personalities that we are not aware of. In a way, it works in a similar fashion to a psychological or personality assessment.

Coaching students have been asking us about the Astro Tools for Coaching that we use. So we’ve listened, and the Astro Coach Academy eCourse is coming up soon.

There’s a lot of ways we can use an astrological chart. Most people think of astrology as fortune telling, which it’s NOT. A little known fact: Karl Jung used to draw a chart for each of his clients. Used skillfully, a chart will indicate a lot of hidden potentials and possible challenges, it’s a very powerful tool to know oneself better, and for a coach, to assist and empower their clients, especially in moments of change of direction. An Astro Coach does not predict but questions, does not impose but propose.

The website in online, taking up contact details before the eCourse goes online later in the year. Registered users will receive emails with articles and tips.

Where It All Comes From

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Have you ever wondered who beats your heart, who flows your blood, who keeps you breathing when you sleep?

What’s your phone number? Most people can answer this question without blinking. But where does the information come from? You don’t have to consciously remember your phone number all the time. The information goes out of your awareness until you need it, at which time, you can usually easily retrieve it.

How do you get in and out of a room? Through the door. How do you know how to operate it? Because you learned. Not only that, you learned once, and now you know how to open ALL doors, not only the one you learned with. Where is that knowledge stored? Do you even have to think about all the necessary steps to open a door? Probably not! You could open a dorr while thinking about something totally different.

The unconscious mind is that part of us that we are not conscious about, i.e we don’t have the faintest idea that it’s even here! But, as the immersed part of the iceberg, it is monumental. All our behaviours have their source at the unconscious level.

If you are over 30 years old, watch the 4 seconds video below (a very funny illustration of this). If you are below 30, don’t bother, you probably won’t get it.

The solution to many of the issues that bother us is to increase communication between the conscious/rational mind, and the unconscious.
