Have you heard the story of the mother that even with a broken back, saves her drowning child trapped under a car by lifting the entire thing off before pulling her child to safety?
Or Alex Hannold doing the impossible by free solo climbing the 3,000 feet El Capitan, Yosemite National Park’s iconic granite wall, WITHOUT ROPES!
Or how about one of my all time heroes, the Iceman Wim Hof that through his breath has developed a superhuman immune system that neither the extreme cold, bacteria or viruses can crack!
Now the question is, WHAT IS THE SECRET? And even more so, HOW CAN WE EVERYDAY PEOPLE ACHIEVE THESE SUPERHUMAN ABILITIES?
There is an actual science to this that you and I can apply in our normal lives to become superhuman as well. The science is called transient hypofrontality, or as many of us would have heard it referred to before, FLOW!
In the science and application of FLOW, your forebrain also called the prefrontal cortex slows down so we can truly be in the ZONE while not over analysing what to do but rather, BE!
Be one with the rock, be one with the wave, be one with our own full potential!
After recovering from 2 broken legs and almost dying from a staph aureus hospital infection through my hips and pelvis back in 2006, I started applying the rituals of FLOW and PRIMING using my yoga and meditation practice to help me heal. Now also as an Australian Ninja Warrior competitor, I found that accessing the state of FLOW actually only requires us to be 4% outside of your comfort zone to gain the same benefits! This has also been proven through the research provided in the book The Rise of Superman: Decoding the Science of Ultimate Human Performance by Steven Kotler.
- I thrive on manifesting into this world that of which I’m capable and worthy.
- I am a genius and I apply my wisdom.
- Whatever I read and hear I retain!
- I have more time than I need, and time values my responses.
- My life is powerfully aligned with my highest values.
- I create original ideas that serve and influence the world. I do what I love and love what I do. I am a STAR in the making!
- When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace etc.
