When an object is flexible and adapts easily to the changes in its environment then it is more likely to survive those changes.

On the other hand when it is rigid the same changes will permeate the inflexible structure and force it to change, often in ways that will cause it to shatter or disintegrate.

A simple example: note what happens to a glass sphere when dropped vs. the same for a rubber sphere. The "flexibility" or "adaptability" of the latter to such an environmental change is significantly greater. On the other hand, glass is more "adaptable”to a change in temperature than say rubber.

Applying this concept of "flexibility" or "adaptability" to one’s personality can yield fruit in terms of helping us understand what characteristics might enhance one’s overall resilience to environmental changes.

One way to conceptualize and operationalize what we call personality is to consider the conditioned beliefs upon which it is based. Such beliefs, acquired during one’s early life, affect one’s perceptual, emotional, behavioral and physiological responses to changes in one’s environment.

For instance, if one believes that any change in one’s life situation is associated with unknown and dangerous outcomes then one’s response to any change is likely to manifest as some of the following:

a) A fear of change.

b) A fear of making decisions.

c) Feelings of pervasive anxiety.

d) Feelings of helplessness and vulnerability.

e) Behavior that seeks to avoid turbulent environments.

f) Fear of engaging new relationships.

g) An inability to respond effectively when changes do occur.

And so on.

This illustrates how conditioned beliefs can affect the adaptability of a personality and therefore its overall resilience. Such beliefs make the personality structure rigid and vulnerable to disintegration in the face of real and perceived change.

Stress is what one feels when their personality structure is being "tested" in this way. So if an individual has a set of beliefs that add rigidity to their personality structure they are more likely to "feel stressed".

Adding resilience to one’s personality structure is then simply a matter of changing one’s repertoire of deeply held beliefs. In order to effect this many forms of therapy attempt to help individuals "reframe" what they perceive to be happening around them. Reframing is a process in which one is taught to think about something in a new and positive way.

Reframing essentially adds some level of flexibility to the personality structure by giving it more ways of responding to change than it had before. One thing it doesn’t do however is address the already present inflexible beliefs that were originally conditioned from early life experience. They continue to remain part of the personality structure, much like one’s “Achilles’ Heel”.

This leaves the individual prone to falling back into the "groove" of the conditioned belief rather than the reframed belief. When this occurs the individual is again stuck in a rigidified state and susceptible to feeling stressed.

Another drawback to reframing is that the individual has to consciously remember to do the reframing exercise each time something untoward occurs to them. In other words a great deal of attention or conscious effort is required to keep the individual prepared to ward off the stress response.

Clearly this is untenable in daily life as one’s attention must necessarily address other more pressing things on a regular basis. If one were to be constantly on guard and prepared to "rethink" what is happening to one it would severely incapacitate their ability to function.

There is now a more reliable way to rapidly and permanently enhance the flexibility and resilience of one’s personality that addresses both of the problems mentioned above. A new tool called the Mind Resonance Process(TM)(MRP) has the remarkable ability to easily and permanently release conditioned beliefs from the personality structure altogether.

The effect of such an undertaking is to automatically free the individual from the rigidity that the offending and limiting beliefs posed in the first place. This often leaves individuals with a feeling most have never experienced before in their entire lives.

It includes some of the following: feelings of lightness, detachment, great resilience, inner peace and calm, great inner strength, self confidence, self esteem, a sense of empowerment, greater vitality, more energized and much more.

What’s more, this is something that occurs spontaneously and which requires no ongoing conscious effort on the art of the individual once the offending belief is released.

It is my view, as has already been shown, that this new approach will usher in an entirely new way of helping individuals gain the much needed resilience necessary to deal with our rapidly changing world.
