Steps in Mental Training  --  Life Areas

Each and every part of our existence - which contains, but is not limited to, our life on Earth in a physical body - can be affected by the untrained or wrongly trained functions of our mind. Mental training is the action of cleaning away the "garbage" from the affected life area, then locating and studying the knowledge related to it, and then practicing that knowledge until the life area is raised up to a state of prosperity.

The outline for our mental training - called "the path" or "the bridge" by some - therefore follows logically from our way through existence. With "existence" we don't mean only one physical life, but the existence of our conscious identity from its very start (its "birth" as a spirit), through its various incarnations (its lifetimes on Earth) and the times between the incarnations, to its final arrival at the merge and unity with its own origin - Christians call it "God", Buddhists call it "Nirvana", New Agers call it "All That Is" - pick your name, it is always the same concept).

Our whole way through existence is shaped by our thoughts, or lack thereof (often we don't even notice that we have delegated our thinking to parents, teachers, priests, politicians or other instruments of society). This is true even if we don't believe in things like reincarnation or a life independent from a body - even for a thoroughly mortal human being who lives only once, it is still true that his or her thinking is the one factor that determines happiness or unhappiness, good or bad luck, success or failure.


 Steps in Mental Training

So, no matter what the specific problem is, the necessary program always consists of a series of steps to get our thinking in shape and then apply our upgraded ability to think to the problematic life area. If for instance the affected life area were "Driving a car", the typical components of such a program would be:

Some practitioners concentrate solely on cleaning away the negative energy and and leave it up to the client to manage the other necessary steps on his own. This is a big risk. The minimum that a practitioner can do, if s/he really decides to concentrate on clearing alone, is to educate their client in the remaining steps, because they are always necessary and can never be left out without serious consequences.

The steps mentioned above are best applied to one life area at a time, in order to avoid destabilizing one's life. A stable life, even with a narrow horizon and rather trivial goals, is in some ways better than a very ambitious but chaotic life that forever resembles a construction site. A stable life can be upgraded, because it is functional, and in a functional life, there will always be time and energy for one new project. If everything moves at the same time, nothing really has the focus of attention and there will be no completions.

Let's have a closer look at the typical set of steps in mental training, assuming we want to work on the area of cars - a randomly selected life area that is hopefully less emotional for most people than the more sensitive subjects like love or money, with which they will likely come up first, and therefore easier to study with a minimum of stress.



 Life Areas

A mental trainer will typically start with the life area on which his client has the most attention. Attention on an area means that the area will allow the client to work in it and make progress.

There may be other life areas which are more in need of work, but they contain too much mental pain about past failures, past harmful acts or past trauma, and it would overwhelm the client to set it free at this point in time. He needs to work on other, more available topics until his general strength has improved so much that he can now address the previously unavailable area. One client may be well able to work in the area of his own children, but not in the area of his own parents. For another one it may be exactly the other way round. The mental trainer has to understand these things and adjust his program to the client's needs.

Aside from these considerations, the general rule would be to work from the most fundamental life areas upwards to the ones that build on these foundations. Working on a person's handling of pets while his income is still a problem would be the wrong sequence. The income is carrying all other life areas, it is their foundation - obviously it has to be one of the first things to focus on.

A general list of life areas can be found in our life analysis form. It follows the typical human sequence of priorities - the priorities that have to be set in order to manage a life in the physical body. If there are no areas of special interest that require immediate action, the mental trainer will work his client through this list from the top down.

For a person with high spiritual awareness, or a person without a body (between incarnations - in the "life between lives") the spiritual issues at the end of the list will typically have a higher priority and take their position at the beginning of the list. For such a person, the spiritual condition is even more fundamental than physical health or material income, as he or she is immediately confronted with the fact that the spirit exists first and takes on a body later - which makes it necessary to be well oriented in the spiritual world, before any physical matters become an issue. As soon as a mental trainer's client exists in a physical body, the body issues have to take priority, because bodies need careful management and cannot be left unattended.
