Try out, experiment and go off in new directions. You shouldn’t be surprised if this becomes a part of your life. If you do the MIR-Method, you’re putting a lot of things into motion. You activate your body to cleanse itself and to supplement shortages, and that renews your energy. Emotionally you free yourself of a great deal. Old fears and dark thoughts lessen and it becomes easier to take new initiatives.
Why is it called 9 “steps”?
The 9 sentences of the MIR-Method are tested with muscle tests. I call them “steps”. Why? There is a reason for that. When you throw off the old burdens, you feel free. You become active. You do what you really like to do. You dare to look at new possibilities, at new challenges. You try out new paths; take new steps. Not because you need to be busy, but because it makes you happy to live up to your potential. It makes you feel happy when you can “live” your talents and abilities.
What is that, “living your talents”?
Everyone is born with a package of talents and abilities. Talents, for example, are:
- Motor skills, such as with dancers, tree climbers or athletes. Or fine motor skills such as drawers or model builders have.
- Communicative skills such as speakers, poets or writers have.
- Creative thinkers: inventors, innovators, designers.
- Social skills: people who are good at dealing with other people; who like taking care of them.
- Good at structuring: creating order, organizing and structuring are easily for you.
Howard Gardner once distinguished between 8 types of intelligence in which you can recognize yourself if you are looking for even more talents. The fun thing about talents is that you can develop them. You don’t have to; you can. The more you practice your talent, the better you become at it.
What is that, “living your abilities”?
Everyone is born with abilities. You don’t have to develop those abilities. You just have them. You only need to be aware of them and learn to use them. Examples of abilities:
Be: Someone you like to be with. That has the ability to Be. That person only needs to be present and it’s good for other people.
Empathy: You feel intuitively what’s going on inside the other person. His grief, his anger, etc. this can be confusing. Is this my grief or his? But by being empathic, you can help other people understand themselves.
Clairvoyance: You perceive energy, auras, dead people or beings. Many people close themselves off to this because it scares them or they are not believed. However, the ability remains and you can free it up again.
Intuition: You have hunches that turn out to be right. You know the answer right away; understand a situation right away.
Clairaudience: You hear answers. You can ask yourself questions and literally hear the answer. Sometimes you hear other voices. These voices are always positive and always provide clarity.
As you can see, these abilities are special. It is certainly advisable to get some help when these abilities make you feel confused or uncertain. Just to help you learn to be comfortable with them. It’s not weird; they’re just part of your full human potential!
How do I see highly sensitive people?
Highly sensitive people are, I believe, people who are already largely living in their abilities. They are already far along in their development of being a complete human, and are ahead of others. Because their sensitivity is often misunderstood, it costs them energy and they seem like victims to everything going on around them. Retreating and closing themselves off is the only thing that helps them to survive. Learning to live with your sensitivity and abilities is the key. Thankfully there are already a lot of coaches and therapists who can help you with this, such as, for example, the MIR-Method coaches.
The 5-minute super trick!
Are you the type who is not yet living his talents and would like to but haven’t started yet? Or do you quickly see all kinds of obstacles in the way and don’t have the courage to make the attempt? Then use the 5-minute super trick! This means that you promise yourself that you only have to do something you’re reluctant about for 5 minutes. For example, you would love to dance, but feel shy. You promise yourself that you can leave after 5 minutes, just to make the first step towards dancing. Or, if you want to write something but are dreading starting it. Promise yourself that you only have to write for 5 minutes. Or you don’t have time to paint or draw. You promise yourself that you will draw for only 5 minutes. Just so it doesn’t interfere with all your other tasks.
Doing something for only 5 minutes is manageable and gives you a hint of what it feels like to live your potential. Try it!
I’m curious what happens when you do something for only 5 minutes. And did talents or abilities surface by doing the MIR-Method? Please, let me know! Write about it below. Thank you!
My wish for you is that you dare to take many steps! The 9 steps will help you with that. And much success living your talents and abilities!
