Big Brain Change Program: Shift #1 Make Space

by Wendy Down on July 5, 2019

Hello! This post marks the official kick-off of our Big Brain Change Program.  

Welcome, welcome, welcome.

I want this first post to establish the mood and expectation for your experience here. Read the words below slowly to let them sink.  They are what will deepen here as we move forward.

Ease.    Relaxation.    Peace throughout the process.

Moments of insight, exhilaration, new possibility and joy.

Support.  Clear and timely guidance.

Deep respect for yourself as you are now and for what you will become.

Acknowledgement that what you know and have experienced to date are useful, relevant and valuable here.

Wonder at the discovery of new strengths, insights and personal qualities. Unknowns within you – good unknowns – will be uncovered.

Surprise at the unexpected timing of helpful, interesting and fun things.

Awareness of how known, seen, loved and supported you and your intentions here are.

As we begin, I see myself as a participant in this experience too.  I too bring strong intentions here and I too will use the program materials and processes to move closer to them.

None of us have to be further ahead than we are today in order to get to where we want to go.

We don’t have to be better than we are. We don’t need to know more, be better prepared, be smarter, braver, clearer or different in anyway.

From where we each begin now, we have the next 15 months to be guided, day by day, closer to the future we foresee. We are enough. And over time, we will become more until we discover we are, in fact, everything we need.

Big breath in, big breath out.  Would you take this in with me?

As we start, I honor you for everything that has happened in your life to bring you here. And I applaud you for having declared you want something strongly enough to commit your time and attention to this experience.

I admire you for taking the risk to choose the specific goal or intention you’re bringing here. (And if you haven’t done that yet, you can still do it here). And I applaud you for trying the unconventional means to that end that you will encounter here. It doesn’t matter at all where you are starting from now, stick with me and you will get to where you want to go.

We have 15 months and 30 posts – 30 Shifts – like this one to guide us.

Yesterday I was listening to physicist Nassim Haramein describe a recent discovery made by his research team who have now proven mathematically that there is only ONE THING HERE: the quantum field expressing itself as form, including the form of you and I.  

As Nassim put it:

 “Each human being is an expression of the quantum field in particular coordinates of space-time, meaning the field is experiencing the world and gathering information from that perspective of space-time… So when you know yourself and what you are – that there’s a distance of zero to zero between you and the universe – and that you ARE the whole thing, then it becomes to easy to love yourself because you realize the miracle that you are.” 

Any of us can know and experience ourselves as this field of infinite potential and the intention of this Big Brain Change Program is to guide you, gently, easily and powerfully, to discover this no-holds-barred truth of who you are. 

As you progress through this program, your logical left brain may argue, caution, override and even ridicule you.  But over time, practice, insight, explanations and evidence will help soothe those protests and your logic will acknowledge the reasonableness of the exploration too.

So with that stage set, let’s talk about today’s topic:  


Making space is an important first step here because, in the most literal way, this program will bring more into your life.  More ideas, more information, more opportunities, more emotions, more skills, more activity, more interactions, more change for the better. So you need room in your life for all that, right?

So in today’s recording, I’ll invite you to make space for what’s ahead, first, in your inner world. As you listen, I’ll guide you to find the structure (the  semi-physical sensation) that currently takes up inner space regarding whatever intention you have for being in this program –  and the fact that you don’t have that desired result yet.  

You’ll change the uncomfortable sensation associated with today’s absence of ‘that thing you want’ into wide open space to receive what’s ahead.

Creating that inner space is a good first movement towards your intention because, according to quantum physics, (ie. the downward causation model of reality here), emotional experiences are vibrations that densify into form as physical experiences.  This interpretation suggests we can set ourselves up for any future experience we want by creating emotional resonance with it first.

In other words, as you start to feel it, you start to have it

The most important thing to do today is listen to the Make Space recording below. But you might also take this concept more literally by actively making space in your life for this program.

For example, you could make more physical space on your desk or in the area of your home where you’ll read and listen to the course materials and recordings.

Perhaps you could make space in your calendar for the time this program will take. (About an hour twice a month plus time in between to regularly apply the In Deeper Process you’ll learn.) Put the dates in now, if you like.

Perhaps you could free up mental space. My own favourite way of doing this is to say no to a commitment of some sort that has been weighing me down.

Or perhaps there’s something else that would best represent ‘making space’ to you. If so, do it..  

And now, I hope you enjoy the recording, Shift #1 – Make Space. (As a reminder, the Big Brain Change Program was intially called The 6 Month Coaching Program, so you’ll see that reference from time to time.)

Also find a TRANSCRIPT of this recording here.  The transcript is meant to supplement the recording, not replace it. This is because reading is a mental activity rather than the emotional/energetic experience you are here to have.

Also. If you are brand new to my work and thinking ‘Woah, what is going on here?‘ you can find out about me and the set up for this program in this post I wrote several month ago introducing it. (Also read the 5 or 6 posts about it that follow that one.) Let’s make sure you know what this program is about and that it’s right for you!

You can leave comment at the bottom of this post about how you made space for this program in your life. Or what you experienced as you listened to the recording.

(Of course, if you’re in the optional Immersion Program, we’ll dive deeper in our next live video-call and in our private Facebook Group.)  

Two weeks from today, I’ll share the next piece of content, Shift #2. It will outline a simple, practical plan for using this program to actually move forward on your stated intention.

See you back here in two weeks and see you in the comments section below!

A final note for those joining this program late:

While you may be tempted to speed through the content to catch up, avoid this temptation. Do no more than 1-2 Shifts per week. Make your own schedule in your calendar to pace yourself. The point of the program is to absorb and be changed by each shift, and a faster pace set by the left brain’s eagerness to see what’s next will not allow for that.
