Positive Vs. Negative Bias

Positive vs. Negative Bias

“Instead of clearing his own heart the zealot tries to clear the world.”  

-Joseph Campbell, Hero With A Thousand Faces

Most people come with problems. I begin from the premise that all problems are merely stories without resolution. The first thing I do once rapport is established, is interrupt the clients pattern of associating with the story as if it is “true.”  I start to work with every individual by establishing a position of balance, positive language and a positive frame. This has the effect of opening the individual to the benevolence of spiritual wisdom. Working this way differentiates me from other “healers” who may endeavor to “release” the individual from the “problem.” In order to do that they must reference the “problem” which in my opinion only drives the problem deeper, forcing the individual to look for the problem first to determine whether or not they can cope with it.

I didn’t always work from this positive position. I started working in spiritual hypnosis using a metaphor of past lives regression, and in between lives, described by prominent authors in the spiritual area: Dr. Brain Weiss, Dr. Michael Newton and others. Having experienced my own past lives journey as part of my own professional development, over a decade ago, I instinctively began to move away from that topology.  In 2006, I discovered the work of my current mentor Joseph Riggio, PhD, of Princeton, NJ. His Soma-Semantictm model opened my eyes to the idea of excitatory and inhibitory biases.

In the inhibitory position, or negative bias, the system is closed. No opportunity of creativity is possible. Often the client’s questions in the inhibitory position are characterized by “Why is this happening to me?” or “Why me?” Defining themselves as a victim within a malevolent environment. They find that life situations have overtaken them, and they are powerless.

In the excitatory position or positive bias, the system is open to opportunity and discovery. Creativity and seeking of self-expression is the driving force in the excitatory bias. The individual becomes aware of his ability to apply available resources for desirable outcomes on his own behalf or with and for others.  As I began to apply my spiritual techniques  from a position of balanced positive bias, I recognized the powerful difference in my client’s results.

No longer was I working to help the client to discover why things are so bad in their life, ferreting out the roots of the worst patterns of their life, behavior and illnesses. I began to help people discover their patterns of success, and how they can utilize those patterns, hidden skills, strength of character, and intentionally take action. They were able to begin to live life creatively and intentionally, and experience being ultimately more effective in more areas of their life.

Interestingly, modern brain science, is beginning to have breakthroughs regarding the working of the mammalian brain. These findings have been absolutely concurrent with the concepts I am putting forth.

Humans seem to insist on chosing an uncharacteristically complicated path: trying to determine how to achieve happiness through finding what is wrong, or even perceiving that there might be something wrong. It is the result of adaptive behavior over a few hundred thousand years.

Instead of looking to find the worst, most painful experience of the past, let’s look at the possible opportunities using our ability to create future memories can offer to create success, and satisfaction in your life.

"The work that you are doing does sound differernt from whats out there. Thats what I like about it. It seems to go to the next level...it makes sense!!" Sherri, 48, Medical Sales, Utah

"At the conference two things stood out for me. The first was your passion and knowledge about gamma, the second was the way that I felt during and after your presentation. It was a great experience for me: my body became very energized, like a power surge. I also experienced clarity about current situation in my life. I can just imagine what results I can have in private sessions with you! So I am drawn to learning more." Brad, 55, Psychiatrist, Vermont

"First of all, I was surprised at your organization, the size and breadth of the scope of work you did with me in the sessions. All my questions were answered. I was amazed how we went through the questions as sort of a blueprint of my life, and did all of it in one sitting. Very good, accomplished feeling! The most valuable revelation is that I am in charge of my life and it is doable, and can be effortless!" Jason, 57, Technical Director, Vancouver

"For a few weeks after our private work, I had not seen the connection between our work and the results in my life. I started to write every day, with interest and my novel is moving along. Recently, upon re-reading the transcripts from our sessions and evaluating my daily work, I realized, that what is now happening in my life is a direct result of our work together, my own revelations, and the personal intention I created for myself! Morrin thank you for making my life effortless! I didn't realize that I had acquired such a commitment to my writing and the actions I needed to be taking is so I can complete the book by my deadline." Teresa, 47, Author, Seattle, WA

"Thank you for your work with me. I feel so connected with inner quiet stillness and serendipity, a sensation of excitement and effortlessness. I feel very powerful in my own life experience, and exactly the way I want to be." Shirri, 38, Consultant, Israel

"Morrin, these amazing results must be attributed to our recent conversations. I don't k now how you do it. The result is that I am excited about my life, feel fully engaged in life, which is effortless and free." Lorraine R., 48, Banker

"As a mentor, you probably heard it before, but I will say it again. Now, after I started working with you, it is easier for me to do what I have to do at work. I manage a number of people and tasks, this coordination used to be tedious for me, and I used to get angry and impatient. Now I have a totally different awareness, and I had great experience learning through Gamma Hypnosis." Tim Daniel, 48, Sr. Manager, New York
