Dr. Scott Mills is a university professor, a coach, and a speaker. He has numerous degrees and certifications, all attained in his search for the best set of tools available to support his clients in getting the changes they want in their lives and business.
In today’s interview, Dr. Scott Mills teaches us about his Inevitability Process and the three timelines that we choose to step into, depending on our deeply engrained brain patterns. He also explains the importance of activating the parasympathetic (relax) nervous system, and creating a very safe and comfortable space, in order to shift our brain patterns and make dramatic changes in our lives.
No matter if the issue is money, time, or relationship, it is all the same brain patterning that we picked up before we even understood what money was. There is not a big difference energetically between, “Is it ok for me to receive the money that I want?”, and ” Is it ok for me to receive the love that I want?”.
If you want to successfully do the exercises to re-pattern the brain, you have to be in a place of comfort and ease. Your “critter” brain is primarily concerned about safety, and if you are not feeling completely safe, your nervous system will not allow you to make the changes you want to make.
If you want to better relax your nervous system, and allow it to experience the sensation of deep relaxation more easily, join a meditation group or be around very calm and peaceful people. We pick up on nervous energy and respond accordingly, and also similarly are positively affected by calm and peaceful energy.
As soon as we are willing to receive, we can. Yet we act like children who are throwing a temper tantrum, and we decide that we will hold our breath until we receive what we want in the form of the way we requested it. As soon as we stop “holding our breath” (or anxiously waiting), we can allow the “relax, release, and allow” expansion to happen. It just comes. Life just comes, because that is the way it is set up.
This was an amazing and thought-provoking conversation. I am now convinced of the importance of taking the time for deep relaxation and self-nurture. I love yoga, and I enjoy the release and the physical benefits of a vigorous yoga class. The restorative and gentle yoga classes were not very interesting to me, until recently I heard of a yoga student who successfully lowered her blood pressure by practicing restorative yoga poses every day. High blood pressure runs in my family, so this perked my interest. I tried a restorative yoga class, and became so blissfuly relaxed that I was amazed. I also found that my muscles were willing to stretch just a little more in restorative poses than in active ones. My body was thanking me for being nice to it! We are a culture that values work, productivity, and “pushing ourselves” to our limits. How much more could we really achieve and attract in our lives if we were at peace and relaxed? I am convinced that Dr. Mills is absolutely correct in teaching us that, in order to make dramatic and deep changes in our brains, we have to learn how to truly relax our nervous system.
