“My brain says so silly, but (these Brain Gym exercises are) surprisingly effective!” — Sean, 22

Oh my heavens, what a story!

Sean came for a session this week.  He’s 22 and would like to sketch more (and presumably, do video games perhaps a little less).  Brain Gym has you role-playing your goal, then doing some in-depth tests, some exercises, then testing and role-playing.

So, Sean chose to sketch on my iPad.  You know how hard it is to do anything with your finger on these screens: ever try to scrawl your signature for a credit card?  Never looks like MY signature, anyhow.  Look at his before and after pictures! Sean noted that while I undoubtedly saw a stick figure, this was a representation of the body he would have drawn, had he had time.  He did note he’d made the arms (with elbows!) longer than he intended.

After 15-20 minutes of Brain Gym exercises, LOOK AT WHAT SEAN DID! I’m stunned and in awe of the changes — and I don’t think it took him any longer than the first sketch! Just LOOKING at this guy makes me happy — greeting the world with a “hi”! (Now he can SEE there’s a world to interact with!) Wide-open eyes, a smile, sooo much more.

The COOL part of all of this is — the growth that Sean got by doing these Brain Gym exercises will, in the coming days and weeks (it can take up to 6 weeks for a balance to fully mature) help him to do OTHER things better in some way.  Whether he finds himself happier, as he was immediately after the balance, or more effective, or with more initiative or involvement or success, his life is now different.
