In a nutshell the 3 principles refer to Thought, Consciousness, and Mind. The central tenet of the 3 Principles (3Ps) is that we can all access “Mind”. Mind is a consciousness that is vastly greater than our own mind, and is often referred to as big mind, or universal wisdom. I think of it more simply as the source of intuition. It bears considerable similarity with Carl Jung’s views about the collective unconscious, as well as the views of ancient philosophers, Eastern philosophies, and many religions.
Using the 3Ps requires a huge leap of faith. As an example, it means approaching any potentially stressful situation believing that you already have the resources necessary to produce your best performance. The more you try to force yourself into this mindset the less likely you are to succeed. It requires letting go, and getting out of your own way. This is an extremely counterintuitive approach, especially in our modern culture where control is all important. The curious thing is that this approach does seem to work. It certainly promotes relaxation and anything that reduces stress levels and their associated negative side-effects is worthy of consideration. In my experience opportunities I would never previously have dreamt about in my wildest dreams have turned up on my doorstep. All the things that I would have sweated buckets for, assuming that I knew what they were, have found me. All I had to do was show up, put myself in the game, and see what happened.
All of my transformational work with clients is based upon the power of the unconscious mind. It is difficult if not impossible to access the deeper layers of our thinking if we are stressed. This is where 3 Principles can be helpful, as it can be seamlessly integrated into other techniques such as meditation, hypnosis, Reconnective Healing and Heartmath.
