Greetings to the followers and learners of Brain Envy! You are doing so well to be hanging in there to this point. I trust you have purchased Change Your Brain, Change Your Life or have called Amen Clinics by now to set up an appt!
I felt since each week's DVD summary is so long, I would put the System Assessement Checklists on this blog; so keep coming back here the next few weeks. Read the list of behaviors and rate yourself (or the person you are evaluating) on each one. Be honest, use your instinct, don't over think it. (BTW: Long lists jumped all over the page when I posted it, so I needed to make your checklist as you see below. I am sorry if this seems a bit muddled!)
LIMBIC SYSTEM: 0 = never 1 = rarely 2 = occasionally 3 = frequently 4 = very frequently
____ Feelings of sadness, ____ Moodiness, ____ Low Energy, ____ Excessive Guilt, ____ Crying Spells, ____ Lowered interest in things usually considered fun, ____ Low Self-esteem, ____ Decreased interest in sex, _____ Negative sensitivity to smells/odors, ____ Forgetfulness, ____ Poor concentration, ____ Feelings often or easily hurt, ____ Feeling overwhelmed by the tasks of daily living, ____ Sensitive to criticism, ____ Lacking confidence in own abilities
Count the number of items you marked with a 3 or 4 ______. If you marked five or more from the list above, it is a high indication of limbic system issues. Remember to look at the Limbic Prescriptions, oils I have suggested are supportive, and make a decision to start 2-3 changes today!
THE BASAL GANGLIA CHECKLIST: 0 = never 1 = rarely 2 = occasionally 3 = frequently 4 = very frequently
_____ Feelings of nervousness or anxiety, ____ Symptoms of heightened muscle tension (headaches, sore muscles, hand tremor), ____ Feeling keyed up or on edge, ____ Quick Startle, ____ Tendency to freeze in anxiety-provoking situations, ____ Excessive fear of being judged or scrutinized by others, ____ Conflict avoidance, ____ Lacking confidence, ____ Sensitive to criticism, ____ Biting fingernails or picking at skin, ____ Always watching for bad things to happen, ____ Excessive motivation, ____ Tics, ____ Poor handwriting
Count the number of items you marked with a 3 or 4 ______. If you marked five or more from the list above, it is a high indication of basal ganglia issues. Check the prescriptions (will need Change Your Brain, Change Your Life for full details), see oil support suggestions (please call me for help in learning more about essential oils if this is new to you), and decide today to begin building your confidence!
