As Spike Milligan said, "It is all in the
mind, you know." And we do. We all
do know that it is, "the mind that
changes everything," and to coincide with
the release of his latest book of the same
name, bestselling author Ian Gawler tells us
how.Everyone knows neurobiologists say
we use only a fraction of our mind's
potential. Thirty five years ago, meditation
and guided imagery were just coming into
the domain of Western science and
meditation. After learning and using these
techniques to overcome a particularly
difficult cancer, Ian Gawler left his veterinary
practice and became one of the true
pioneers of Mind-Body medicine in the
Ian is clear about what is on offer:
"What we are talking of here is a science,
a mind science. This is how you train your
mind. It is just like choosing to become
physically fitter by going to the gym, running
around the park, training your muscles.
Here, however, we go to the 'mental gym'.
We train and we learn how to get the best
out of our mind and its potential."
As many people these days are aware
of both meditation and imagery, Ian was
asked to explain their differences, and the
basis for the use of each.
"The mind has two aspects. There is
the 'thinking mind' and the 'nature of mind'.
The thinking mind is involved with
everyday functioning. It is changing all the
time as thoughts come and go. Imagery
teaches how we can be free of negative or
destructive states of mind and how we can
develop the clarity of mind to make good
decisions and use our mind constructively.
"The nature of mind is a term used to
describe that more profound aspect of our
mind that is found in a deeper stillness.
Meditation goes into the stillness beyond
the active mind."
After three decades studying this field,
Ian says he has been fortunate to learn a
good deal from working closely with
sporting and business people, those seeking
more peace in their lives, healing of major
illness and those who are really yearning for
a direct and profound spiritual experience."
"My aim is to clarify what does work
in imagery and meditation. These mind
techniques are well tried and tested and I
have seen them transform many people's
lives for the better."
Dr Ian Gawler is holding workshops
in Bunbury and Perth this month to learn
the theory and practise the techniques that
make personal transformation a reality. ●
