BE_say-do_HAVE

Behave yourselves
(Its all a question of imagination)

iStock_000009165312_ExtraSmallBehave yourselves and do what you are told!
As a child you may had heard that at school or home or both.

I am finding more and more that I am using the ‘BeSayDoHave’ model on clients, and friends, who are stopped or confused about where they are in their lives.
That seems to be the common theme in life right now OR it just occurs to me that way.

There is a certain directionless in people’s lives.
I think because they are buying into the recession thing and the pointlessness they believe as a result.

Actually, never before have we had so much opportunity to imagine and create!

But we are certainly in transition.
Social Media is causing and assisting that big time.
We are amidst a Social Revolution which is bringing all sorts of authority under scrutiny and conspirisists are having an open run at most every known and unknown event of the past zillion years.

Perhaps it is that governments and corporations are disempowered as a result and the feeling of lost-ness and leaderless-ness is showing up

The ‘Be Say Do Have’ Model

The model follows the state of unconscious into unconsciousness and back out again.

BEing requires no consciousness – one just is just feeling or just being in a state for no reason.
When we get to SAY something about that we become conscious of our state which will probably cause us to
DO something (consciously or unconsciously)
thus causing us to HAVE something. (again consciously or unconsciously).

States of Concern

Most states of concern are so practiced (repeated time and time again) they run automatically and become unconsciously executed.

But let’s look more closely at the model:

As a child we were always imagining BEing something and telling (SAYing) others about  it and then DOing things and HAVing experiences before moving on to the next BeSayDoHave cycle = Playing.

If we didn’t HAVE the result we imagined we probably threw a tantrum or got upset until it was forgotten and then we started the whole BeSayDoHave cycle off again.

Going then into the next stage of our development (??) of entering education, we also enter an environment where the chances are that we need to be controlled.
What we BE and SAY become casualties because there is a need for us to DO and HAVE things so that we comply with the rules.

You can’t have 30 Kids BEing and SAYing things all at one time. Chaos will follow and control will be lost.

In point of fact Self Control was being installed in us and not all of us can do that.

The Short Circuit and Getting Stuck

What I come across are people who have gone through the system and arrived in a future where unconsciously they are under great (self-)pressure to DO something to change how they are (BE) feeling and the short cycle of DoHave is constantly being run without achieving the desired result.

They believe that to HAVE change that they need to DO and haven’t yet found out what it is. They need to do something or are having trouble deciding something.
They have forgotten to BE and SAY what it is that has come to them unconsciously.

In the DoHave cycle there is very little room for unconscious imagination and people constantly come up short.

Choice, Not Decisions

Adding BeSay back into the equation increases scope and depth and most importantly choice!
Things become unstuck
and the pressing need for decision goes away.

 

GET OUT THERE AND BE ANYTHING YOUR IMAGINATION REQUIRES and
if it doesn’t work out throw a tantrum in your head and start a new cycle.

 

How the smell of a new car can stop you losing weight

Who would have thought it?

Angelabook with borderThis post appears in @SocioWellBeing Angela Steel’s blog at http://www.superwellness.co.uk/how-the-smell-of-a-new-car-can-stop-you-losing-weight/

I am seeing Angela and she is doing wonders for my health because I was, as she puts it, ‘metabolically stuck’.  After years of being an Athlete, running around a Basketball court and now a sexagenarian, I got stuck.
I never realised how much sugar I was processing and the impact it was having on me.

Her blog post amused me; I can see the Obesogens flying in formation now! Open-mouthed smile

How the smell of a new car can stop you losing weight

Sometimes people can get ‘metabolically stuck’ and feel that
even though they might be eating the right things, and
exercising regularly, their body is just holding onto fat.

How frustrating!

There are a few reasons why this can happen, and one
of them was covered recently in the journal ‘Molecular
Cell Endocrinology’ (not available from WH Smiths… J)

What were they looking at?

Something called obesogens (that’s the name they
gave them!) which are in fact chemicals coming from
outside, as well as bacteria residing in our guts.

The chemicals are well known already. It’s no new discovery
that plasticizers (used in all kinds of materials, mainly plastics
of course, and which evaporate into the environment. You know
the new car smell?….. that comes from them), fungicides used
in agriculture, hormones fed to animals to suit mass production
‘requirements’, all cause disruption to our hormones.

Hormone disruptors

Of course our hormones are a crucial link in the chain that determines
our ability to burn fat, lose weight, etc… so these ‘obesogens’
are flicking all the wrong switches and playing havoc with our
finely tuned metabolism.

Obesogens from within

The other type of obesogen that was mentioned is perhaps less
widely known and its origin is in our own gut.

These are essentially bacteria which can grow in the gut and
create more calories than actual calories consumed during digestion!

Now that is not something we want at all…

How to avoid them

There are lots of things we can do once we are aware of these
undesirable ‘obesogens’. Avoiding putting food in contact with
plastic is one major step (especially heating food in plastic, for
a whole lot of other reasons too). Buying organic food as much
as possible (especially animal foods, like meat and milk).

Consider a detox

A functional detox, designed to help the liver drain off unwanted toxins AND
balance gut flora as well can be a good way of pressing the RESTART button
on your metabolism.
