Ever heard someone say, “my heart is broken”? Perhaps you’ve heard “my gut instinct is…”, or “my head’s not there”? These aren’t just phrases we make up but reflect the way we feel and think. It is also backed up by 3,000 year old Ancient Wisdom and, more recently, neuroscientific research.
mBraining or mBIT is a truly exciting, profound and powerful new coaching approach. mBIT stands for multiple Brain Integration Techniques. It is a model of how we can use the complex, adaptive and fully functioning neural networks (sometimes referred to as ‘Intelligencies’ or ‘brains’) in our heart, our gut as well as our head.
The latest neuroscience has found that both the heart and the gut have the same kind of neurons as are found in the brain. They even behave in the same way as neurons in the head brain, effectively ‘thinking’ and storing memories. The three brains communicate using the vagus nerve that runs through your body.
One of the goals of mBIT coaching is to enable people to develop and maintain coherence amongst these three brains.
Do you ever experience…
- Internal conflict between your thoughts, feelings and actions
- Repeatedly not acting upon or sabotaging your dreams, goals and plans
- Doing unwanted or unhelpful behaviours or habits and don’t know why and find difficulty in stopping
- Challenges in making decisions or are unable to motivate yourself to take action towards your goals
- Chronically experiencing disempowering emotional states such as frustration, depression, anger, anxiety etc.
- Chronic health issues, especially those to do with the heart or gut regions
If you have ever experienced such conflicts it could well be that your three brains are pulling you in different directions. mBIT coaching is a way to use the knowledge of the existence of our three brains to help synch them together, removing conflict which then leads to positive action and a sense of true alignment.
I am fortunate to be one of the UK’s first accredited mBIT coaches and often use elements of mBIT in my coaching sessions as well as sessions focusing solely on the mBIT toolkit if it is appropriate.
