“When mind is capable of moving the body then the body is also capable of moving the mind.”

One common denominator
We are able to see water in three different suspensions – in the form of ice, liquid and vapor. The same holds for dynamic power – we are able to work with it physically but also at the conscious level we can grasp it in our mind in form of thoughts and emotions (Exhibit 3). MS® methodology education and consulting is based on this fact and whenever there is a decrease of dynamic power in any of the three levels it seeks to find the lost balance in the other two accordingly.

 

Below is an example from practice:
When we feel emotionally tired, we go for a run or exercise in the gym to clear our thoughts in our mind. Physical exercise activates our physical level which also has a positive impact on our mental level. In this case, we exercise in order to clear our mind – exercise helps us stop focusing on our topic. Naturally, the exercise has nothing in common with our topic.

The goal of MS® Methodology is to engage physical level in order to regenerate mental level while staying focused on the topic of interest via physical level. When we are able to imitate the topic of interest on the physical level our learning process transfers from the mental level into subconscious level via our body. Thus, we can extend the learning process of the given topic while our mind is resting.

Here is an example from practice again:
Speach therapy uses physical subjects when learning the pronunciation of hard vs soft vowels. When a child pronounces soft vowel it presses on the soft bean bag vs. when pronouncing hard vowel it presses hard bean bag. The child registers this information on both physical and mental level. What happens when child is mentally tired the pressing of the bags is meaningless. MS Methodology® goes a step further and is able to continue the learning process via physical level while resting the mental level.

Another example of such learning would be keeping eye contact during a sword fight. This way we practice at the physical level (keeping eye contact) also the mental level which means keeping one thought in our mind. Because our eyes are the first thing that moves at the physical level when we change a thought in our mind, thus, keeping an eye contact while in motion we practice our concentration on one thought.

MS® Methodology instrument – Oumdo® mind-in-motion

Just like we are able to discuss a topic on mental level using words we are also able to discuss using the language of our body. In order to utilize the language of the body we use o gumdo® mind-in-motion swords and its specific exercises that imitate the topic of interest in motion.

Why using a training sword?
Historically, sword has served as personal protection in order to survive. There are studies (Sebastian Neckel, 2009) that prove that just holding the sword in our hand awakens the subconscious DNA codes that result in immediate rise of our focus. This fact is not the only one that makes the sword a unique training tool. We are able to safely and effectively train our decision-making, staying loose under pressure and focused on our goal and other inner qualities of our personality using ogumdo® mind-in-motion methodology.

 

Application of MS® methodology in education
“Focus burns dynamic power”

The main goal of MS® methodology application into educational processes is engagement of physical level in order to lenghten the focus of given topic at the mental level which improves the overall learning process.

New information is not absorbed only at the mental level

Mental level is the most common one used as learning process in educational field, supported by emotional level. The time period of attention of the listener depends on the attractivity of topic of interest (mental level is engaged since we are absorbing the knowledge of the seminar) and personality of the speaker (emotional level is engaged since we enjoy the delivery of the presentation). Physical level is not engaged at this point.

 

The highest awareness level happens at point 1 and 2 when the dynamic power is at its highest level, thus the mental level is also at its highest point. Listener has the biggest chance to gain deep understanding of the topic of interest because the mental level has energetic supremacy over the emotional and physical levels (Exhibit 4).

 

The usual learning process ends with a necessary break because the listeners‘ level of awareness drops (due to the drop of the dynamic power). Break usually helps to regenerate the listener but the next learning block starts with lower level of awareness and the listener is able to pay attention for a shorter time period when compared to the beginning of the learning process. (Exhibit 4).

 

MS® methodology helps to solve the drop of the dynamic power with engagement of the physical level (Exhibit 5). Due to the engagement of the physical level, dynamic power increases and impacts the other two levels (emotional and mental). Thus, listeners‘ awareness stays at high level. As a result, listeners are able to stay engaged longer and learn more effectively.

 

Application of MS® methodology in consulting
“The higher the dynamic power – the braver the thought in our mind”

While in the educational field the main interest is to maximalize the listeners‘ awareness via physical level, in consulting the main interest is to change the point of view in order to see the “big picture”.

Dop of the dynamic power causes the drop of confidence on our mental level
The most obvious example of the dynamic power decrease is the aging process. People tend to mentally reduce their living space with increasing age. Majority of older people seem to think more defensively and challenges view as threats instead of opportunities. Many of them choose to stay home and avoid any travel because the outside world becomes more dangerous to them.

From the MS® point of view, this issue applies to all of us more than we think. Any drop of the dynamic power causes our attention to turn to something we don’t want and at the same time we lose the connection to something we wish. The bigger the fluctuation of the dynamic power, the more emotional and intense is the time period we are trapped with no sign of positive solution. Our thoughts are focused on things we want to avoid and our mindset is defensive (Exhibit 6).

Increase of dynamic power helps us see all the possibilities
The level of dynamic power decides about the „greatness“ of our thinking and ability to see things „outside of the box“. When the level is low we tend to „drop our head“ and look down and focus on the obstacles in our way. Increase of the dynamic power helps our physical body to stand up and raise our head. We are able to look up and ahead to see the opportunities – grasp the best possible solution (Exhibit 7). The increase of the dynamic power provides selfconfidence and offensive thinking.

Below is an example from practice:
The best example of the use of dynamic power increase for offensive mind is the HAKA dance of the New Zealand rugby team. This pre-match routine uses the series of specific exercises to energize not only the body but also the mind. The high level of dynamic power due to this dance helps the rugby team to think and play offensively from the very beginning (Exhibit 8).

 

 

MS® Consulting supports innovative thinking in order to discover possible solutions to a specific problem.

 

Option Sigma CZ founded First Mental Supremacy School CZ (1MSS CZ) in order to support effectiveness of any educational process. 1MSS‘s mission is to enhance educational process utilizing MS® methodology and also expand its use.

GOAL
Maximalize the effect of any learning process.
HOW?
Due to increased ability to concentrate on the topic of interest.
PROCESS
Engagement of the physical level.

Logic behind MS® methodology use in education
Education via MS® methodology is based on the logic of the learning process. First comes the understanding which is followed with deep comprehention and grasping of the topic. This process starts with acceptance of the thought, continues through the emotional level and ends with physical experience.

The logic of the MS® learning process is displayed via three-level pyramid:

PřExample of three-level engagement learning process:
“Knowing doesn’t mean understanding”
Imagine you want to explain to a small child that the stove is hot and should not be touched. At the mental level, the child knows that it should not touch it but most likely it will come closer and feel the heat. The emotional level is activated through the heat and the child feels the warmth. The learning process is completed when the child touches the stove and feels the heat at the physical level and burns its hand. At this point all three levels are engaged and the child has a full understanding of the word „hot“.

Importance of physical experience
MS® methodology uses the same concept in educational process for deeper understanding. The topic of interest is explained first at the mental level, then felt through at the emotional level and finally experienced at the physical level through our own body.

1MSS offers education with Mental Supremacy® methodology for the wide publuc since Fall 2016. Educational seminars Power of Continuity explains basic principles of Mental Supremacy® and its application into everyday lives.

Everyone is familiar with some of the following situations: when someone looks at us and we look the other way; when we can’t stop thinking of something or someone; when we feel powerless with certain people; when we can’t say „no“ to certain people. All of these situations are a result of our dynamic power, which decides whether we are „active“ or „reactive“ in our behavior. In an attempt to understand these behaviors we believe the answers are in esoteric literature.

Mental Supremacy® seminars Power of Continuity focus on application into personal development, health, and relationships with the help of practical tools.

Topic-based lectures tailored to improve parenting skills.

 

 

MS® Consulting is mainly used by corporations, entrepreneuers and professional athletes in order to gain mental edge. MS® Consulting supports and further expands other forms of coaching with the dynamic physical level since most principles are experienced on our own body.

Goal is to discover optimal solution
Same way how dynamic power is used in education in order to improve the understanding of the topic of interest, we are also able to use for example Aikicom principles in order to explain another point of view on the topic of interest and find a more effective solution to the problem.

Starting point is different for everyone
Consulting process at the individual level is based on all three levels mental (conscious), emotional (subconscious) and physical level. MS® Consulting considers all three levels as mutually interconnected with the same importance. These levels infuence each other, thus, if one is out of balance the other two do not function at the optimal level. This imbalance is usually the heart of the probem of the client. The goal is to find where this imbalance is (mental, emotional or physical level) and find a solution how to bring it back to optimal level.

This three-level balance works for a group just the same way like at the individual level. Thus, this learning process can be utilized for teams and organizations.

From the individual level to team level
Team‘s mental level (in form of goals and visions) consists of individual mental levels of all team members (individual goals). Goals can only be effectively and succesfully achieved if ALL members have a clear understanding of the main purpose of this goal. The degree of attractiveness of this goal depends on how well the purpose is received in order to drive the emotional level (motivation to achive this goal) and realize these goals at the physical level as the whole team. Every individual has its own vision (goal) and its own motivational drivers and if these are aligned within the team it can function at its full potential because it has all three levels in balance. The team finds purpose (mental level) • with the right purpose it has motivation (emotional level) • motivation drives the individual members to realize the goal (physical level).

From the team level to the whole organization
Organization is a structure of different teams with a common main goal (its mental level); emotional level consists of internal communicational systems and motivation of each individual and physical level is comprised of capabilities, skills and projects of individual employees who together realize the firm’s goals and visions. If this main goal has a purpose for each individual then the firm can also perform at its full potential.
MS® Consulting process sees the organization as a human being which is the smallest part of it, thus, follows the same principles of dynamic power and implications of the individual three levels (mental, emotional and physical).

Dynamic power – key to success in the professional world

Professional world differs significantly with one main variable – TIME. Time provided for any action or performance and consequently time provided for our recovery process. Whether it is professional sport, business proposal or lawsuit preparation, time usually plays an important factor when compared to our personal lives. In today’s competitive environment we are unfortunately not in charge of our time. We are forced to perform, react or decide quickly under pressure and recover fast.

The difference in recover time in personal and professional environment (Exhibit 1 and 2.).

Explanation: pyramid in Exhibit 1 shows action and recovery time in non-competitive environment where there is unlimited time for recovery before another action. However, in the professional environment the recovery time is limited before another action due to pressure from the employer, competition, deadlines as well as personal pressure – our own demands (Exhibit 2). If there is no recharge during the short recovery time in terms of dynamic power then the drop will cause also drop of the other two levels which will show up as loss of concentration, motivation and possible burnout. Thus, our next action will have significantly lower impact – we won’t perform at our best potential (Exhibit 3). The result feels like we are in the vicious cycle of our own failures.

MS® methodology offers solution in results-oriented environment in both professional sport as well as business.

Corporate sphere has a lot in common with professional sport. The only difference is the way the results show up. In professional sports the physical level is more visible as opposed to the business world where it is the mental level. Effective systems and structure in corporations as well as dynamic thinking and decision making of employees all present a healthy functioning organization.

“Even the sharpest sword can’t hit the target unless made out of good steel and has enough speed. Just like the greatest idea can’t be realized unless it has enough power and skill behind it.”.

From the individual level to team level.
Corporations are made of different departments and departments are made of people. All three levels of this structure have one common denominator – which is the logic how they all mutually impact each other. The corporation is only as strong as its weakest link.

MS® Consulting offers internal point of view which uses logical analysis to help clarifying mutual influence among all variables – organization, teams and individual employees. The purpose of MS® Consulting is to offer a unique point of view and recommended solution using the principles of the dynamic power.

MS® Consulting in professional sport is the newest revolutionary system of professional training.

Regular preparation period in any professional sport consists of specialized training of technique and fittness. However, the reality is that very few of the athletes perform at their best during competition. Thus, there is an imbalance between the performance in practice and in competition. It is a common knowledge that usually the best athletes train much less than the rest yet are able to succeed.

There is a different structure for the energy demand during competition. Competition brings the important moments where we thrive to succeed as well as environmental pressure (spectators, media, authorities, etc.). Thus, the burden for the mental level is quite high.

MS® methodology simulates the competition pressure where the athlete is forced to handle the pressure with help of physical level activation
Physical activity of the athlete strengthens the ability of conscious control of the visualized goals which are transfered into the subconscious (emotional) level. Thanks to this process the competitive environment becomes a comfortable field for the athlete
Once the athlete is activated via the physical and emotional levels he/she is ready for the mental level, which is an explanation of the subsequent levels. The emphasis of this step is on finding the true purpose of the physical and emotional activation and consciously utilize the dynamic power.
