In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my visitor Lisa Wimberger was struck by lightning at age 15 and lived. That lightning strike set in movement a grand mal seizure dysfunction that she lived with for the following twenty years and finally influenced her life’s work with neuroplasticity.
The seizures turned life threatening, however that situation impressed her to search out methods to guard and rebuild her physique and thoughts. She went on to discover neuroplasticity, a course of that helped her to disrupt her seizures.
“There’s a seizure halo from stress and maladaptive vagal tone and then there’s a seizure. Well, there’s a gap in space and time between those two things and it might be a fraction a second, but that is a response pattern that I’ve gotten really good at. Neuroplasticity says I can change those things. It doesn’t tell me how exactly, but I’m going to figure it out. I had all of this meditation that I was not using for my well-being, and then all of the science, and I just backwards engineered.”
The most profound perception she realized was that the best way she was meditating was truly dangerous to her. “When you hear the word meditation, it’s not one size fits all,” Lisa says. “There’s all different kinds and you have to know what works for your body.”
Lisa based the NeuroSculpting® Institute in Colorado, the place she teaches individuals and organizations that suffer from stress issues, together with legislation enforcement groups. She created NeuroSculpting®, a 5-step meditation course of that may assist a person launch the grip of outdated patterns and entrain their mind to creating new and extra supportive patterns, habits and behaviors.
“The benefits are you still get to hack into your nervous system, and you get to file down the sharp edges of any thought that might have triggered you into arousal at any point in time, or you can create brand new thoughts,” she says. “Neuroplasticity doesn’t care if it’s an experience you’ve never had or an experience you’ve had. It only cares that you’re programming it with buy-in, and it’s going to store that in your mind as a pattern.”
Lisa earned a grasp’s diploma in Education, a Foundations Certification in NeuroManagement, and certificates in medical neuroscience, visible notion, and the mind, and neurobiology. She’s written quite a few books on neuroplasticity and stress administration, together with Neurosculpting: A Whole-Brain Approach to Heal Trauma, Rewrite Limiting Beliefs, and Find Wholeness and New Beliefs, New Brain: Free Yourself from Stress and Fear.
She’s additionally co-creator of a digital app made up of interactive NeuroSculpting® modules that shift mind neuroplasticity and assist well-being, referred to as NeuroPraxis. This distinctive app helps individuals re-pattern trauma and nervous system struggling via guided meditation.
Listen on as we discuss Lisa’s discoveries in mind entrainment, stress administration and meditation practices that do no hurt.
