Creative Solutions - The MythoSelf® Process

"The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are." Joseph Campbell 

Most people I come in contact with experience what my mentor. Dr. Joseph Riggio, referred to as, "ontological longing."  That is, a sense that something is missing... a desire to have something beyond that they have already acquired or achieved in order to consider themselves complete.

Essentially, what is missing for these individuals is the sense that they are simply good enough the way the are, with nothing added, nothing to be doing, without having to change,
or without needing validation from others.

The Mythoself® Process is a model about who you are.  It is a remarkable transformational opportunity for those who embrace it.  The key is coming to a position within yourself where your system comes to "rest"; where what is outside of you-- your possessions, your relationships, your career, your performances of any kind-- are just simply things to be doing!  And when you are doing these things in complete alignment with who you are in the most fundamental and primal way (a position held within your body when you are at your "best"), those things become effortless for you.  Moreover, each thing you find yourself doing tends to reinforce that position you hold representing who you most are, leading to become even more strongly committed to being that person!

The Mythoself® Process contains a set of skills for helping you learn to live your life being true to yourself-- without compromise-- both on your own and in connection with others.

Through a series of steps within The Mythoself® Process, you will discover and express your true “identity.” And you will learn how to run your life, making it more enriching and enjoyable…without changing who you are. Hence, it’s a way of learning to have the “life of your dreams”, without having to change your life.

We make hundreds of decisions each day-- big ones and very small ones.  Most of our decisions are in relation to what is not working in our lives.  We attend to what we identify as "issues" or "problems" to which we respond feeling stressed, uncertain, depressed, confused and a host of other negative choices.  These responses are the result of making poor decisions-- without even realizing it!  As a result, many people go through life chained to their problems.

At Creative Solutions, Dr. Green helps people make better decisions and in the process, identify and achieve what it is they want ; not simply rid themselves of what they do not want.

Typically, people set "goals" for how they want their lives to be in the future, in large measure by considering--then avoiding-- what failed to work in the "past"; you know...the things that prevented them from getting what they want. Then they try to plan the steps they need to get there from their present situation, being very careful to avoid “mistakes” previously made.  But at the time they are setting these goals-- the "present"-- they do not have the experience of what they themselves will be like when the goals are realized. So they have no experience of having achieved something to move toward.

The life you are experiencing is a function of where you place your attention.  Generally, a useful adage to consider is, "Place your attention where you want it most!"  In attending or behaving we are acting in relation to data as we perceive it to be (verses how it "is."). This is so because we are always filtering data before we perceive it as a conscious concept.  A "filter" refers to a particular sensory modality such as: visual, auditory, kinesthetic, olfactory and gustatory (you could argue proprioceptive and vestibular as well).  This filter set is always present in its totality.  That is, the sensory systems for any perceived experience are active at all times--wholeform-- regardless of how someone's attention is organized to track the data being filtered (i.e., the number of active sensory channels someone is using to experiencing that data).  So a person may only be experiencing one or two sensory input channels, regardless of the fact that all channels are present in that moment. 

So the type of attention someone pays in a given situation is a result of how it's filtered.  Shift the filter set (i.e., increasing the number of sensory channels about which someone is aware is one example), and you "force the sort" for different information; the kind that leads to identifying what you want and making useful decisions in that regard.

Utilizing the tool set known as "The Mythoself® Process", you can learn to establish an experiential realization—first, within your body-- of what you will actually be like when you are living the life you want to be living. And then further add to that experience by considering what else will be "true" when you are there-- what kinds of events, things and relationships will show up in your life when you are living that way.
