40. Are You a Creature of Habit or an Adventurer?
They say that man is, by nature, a creature of habit. But is that so? I often hear it said and I also see it happening around me: people who always sit in the same seat in the train, use the same parking space for their car in the neighborhood parking area or prefer to get in line at the third cash register. It’s not really surprising that moving is 2nd on the list of stress factors!
After moving, everything is different. Walking through your house, where your socks are, where the cutlery is, the route to the bathroom, they way you enter the house, other keys. Everything, everything is different. Moving would be almost the last thing you feel like doing.
Our ability to deal with change is enormous!
Still, I don’t believe that humans are creatures of habit. When I see how many (technological) developments there have been in the last 30 years, I find it amazing to see how easily humans have adjusted to them!
On the other hand, many changes are not fast enough for me. I’m not the type that has a lot of patience and often don’t understand why change takes so long.
Enlarge your ability for change with the MIR-Method
The MIR-Method is a method that reveals your ultimate Self. You let go of old hindrances and make room in yourself for your full potential! You have new energy, new ideas and you take steps.
Step 1: “Optimize acidity”. A body that is too acidic retains ballast. It is more difficult to dispose of waste products. By improving the acidity (by drinking more water, for example), you dispose of more waste products.
Step 2: “Detox all toxicity”. By detoxifying ballast, your body becomes more flexible and can restore itself better. Toxic thoughts have less space and there is more room for uplifting, encouraging thoughts: “You can do it!”
Step 3: “Detach father. Detach mother”. Your parents’ habits cause you to go along in life in the same way. How did they deal with work and with each other? How did they deal with money and food? By detaching yourself from father and mother, you also detach yourself from their habits and you are freer to develop your own habits.
Step 4: “Clear meridians”. If the flow is weak in your stomach meridian, you will be weighed down by fear about the future and worry too much. Your focus is mainly on yourself and on the fear of coming up short. Clearing the meridians allows you to be in the here and now and to have more room for other people.The large intestine meridian is characterized mainly by holding onto something, not letting go. People who suffer from this like to hold onto existing rules and might say something like: “Because that’s what we agreed to”. It’s difficult for these people to allow for change to occur out of fear for what could then happen! Clearing the large intestine meridian makes you more flexible and more open to change.
Step 5: “Supplement all shortages”. Change demands courage, a clear head and energy. If you have nutritional deficiencies, they will have an impact on your ability to think. It’s difficult for you to move out of your fixed circles of thought, much less try going down new paths. At the same time you don’t have enough energy and can’t bear thinking about how things are changing.
Step 6: “Balance hormone system”. Your hormone system is incredibly smart. If things around you change, the hormone system changes with you, because it can adjust! If there are disturbances in your hormone system, change is not easy for you. Work, therefore, on bringing your hormone system back in balance so you can deal with change with more flexibility.
Step 7: “Fulfill basic needs”. Not being able to change has everything to do with basic needs. Did you experience little security in your childhood, were you not sufficiently protected and were there sudden changes? Then that caused a deficiency in your basic needs. It is important to supplement that shortage so you feel safe and protected inside and can cope with sudden changes.
Step 8: “Optimize Chakras and Auras”. Your chakras and aura go along with your development. People with blocked chakras hold on to fixed habits; people with a vulnerable aura are the plaything of everything that goes on around them. When you overcome your fears and your energy is flowing freely again, your chakras and aura become stronger. It makes you more steadfast and as flexible as reed (flexible, but not breaking). You feel that life is easier, that it moves along with you.
Step 9: “Clarify mission”. Change is a part of life. Your body changes, your environment changes, your life changes. Resisting this makes little sense. Complaining about it doesn’t, either. The trick is to have influence where you can. Then you will enjoy life and feel that you are contributing to changes for the better. Contributions can be anything: signing a petition, loaning a neighbor an interesting book, bringing a group of people together to set up a project for the city, building a website with awareness-raising articles, making videos to inspire others, cleaning or gardening for someone, etc.
The meaning of life
Being active is, I think, the meaning of life: contributing to someone else’s life. That is what makes someone happy. The feeling that you are important and that what you do makes a difference in someone else’s life!
Have fun making a difference in someone’s life!
How about you? Do you love change? Did you do something recently to make a difference in someone else’s life, however small?

Reading and rereading the 9 MIR-Method, I now find things
falling into place. I do it every day and my last 4 years
have been very very “heavy” in all respects and since I
found your MIR-Method, I feel the difference, it is gradual
but I am beginning to feel I have been in the frozen past
for all those sad years, and now I have a new beginning
Thank you for sharing! I am ever so pleased that you feel some ‘light’ shining again! This can only get better, so I am very happy for you! Just let the MIR-Method do it’s work!
