ONE_THING

HOW TO REDIRECT MY SUPERFOCUS TO MY INNATE FLOW

It's so easy for my brain to get caught and tangled up, affected by others, for extended periods of time.

My superfocus latches on to whatever is disturbing me in an effort to solve the 'problem'. My superfocus is a key element for my Innate Flow however it can work against me if I don't understand how to nurture, respect or protect it.

The 'problem' distracts and disconnects my Innate Flow: my energy, motivation and imagination with my child, play, working projects and home. Temporarily blocked and seemingly lost.

My super focus doesn't understand, some problems require time and deep reflection, especially if they are complicated and layered, not always accompanied by a simple answer an answer that will not come with thinking forces.

Switching my superfocus away from trying to solve a problem back to my Innate Flow is quite tricky.

To return and reconnect to my Innate Flow, even just a little bit,

it helps to have a simple ONE_THING that can quickly and quietly shift my inner storm and distraction. 

 

A storm that my  Interoception  intelligence may require time to work out.

In the meantime, when everything is just

'TOO MUCH', or when times are tough and I don't have a lot of time, when in the heat of the moment, about to burst, bawl, bash

or say something, I shouldn't, I pause and,

say

 THANK YOU

 

many times if necessary to myself in my own mind to whomever, whatever, whichever is crushing or pushing me over the edge

 

I say

 THANK YOU

Saying THANK YOU quickly informs my mind I will learn something valuable from the experience when I do work through it.

 

Saying THANK YOU shifts and reduces my big thoughts and feelings to produce less negative destructive reactions.

 

As for being a neurodivergent human when I'm affected by others or by an upset it can trigger my threat responses Fight Fright Freeze and Fawn. Internalised pressures trigger my PDA, OCD brain and derail my autistic ADHD neurology.

When they get going together, the pressures multiply, consuming and overwhelming my whole body.

When I practice THANK YOU I'm always grateful later on when the storm within passes and have a more settled brain and time to work out what is truly upsetting me. When I know what is actually the root cause of my upsets I can work out what action I can take, if any, to better care of myself and my child.

Saying one simple thing like, THANK YOU reminds my brain understandings and solutions are waiting on the horizon.

 

All will be okay.

Authoritarian and conforming learning and approaches such as ABA or Applied Behaviour Analysis, treatment or cures, ableism or functioning labels are harmful to both FAN and their child neurodivergent neurologies.
