Knowing what a mental trigger is and how they work is extremely valuable when practising MFM. This is because an anchor, and its corresponding trigger can overcome even our MFM practices. You may enjoy the dialogue below, as I go through the mental health issues of my day. I had lost the battle with anxiety and was in a daze until I finally picked myself up and used MFM to permanently overcome my triggers.

Podcast episode coming soon.

My battle with anxiety and how I lost it today

I didn’t end up doing the episode 6 podcast today because I was filled with anxiety about my whole job situation. I was good in the morning, spending time applying for jobs, making sure to update my resume and provide cover letters. However, after lunch, at my usual podcasting time, I just felt too down to do anything. So I ended up finding ways to waste time and feeling sorry for myself for 3-4 hours.

I knew at the back of my mind that I could stop it at any time with a bit of MFM and focus but I just couldn’t be bothered. My mental talk was in overdrive, blaming all types of vaguely related things for the hurt I was feeling. Which went on for all those hours, only pausing whenever I was watching a show or playing a game.

Eventually, I ‘bothered’ myself enough to spend a few minutes focused on MFM and made a few discoveries while I explored where my mental state was at. I used MFM to observe what was causing the anxious thoughts and the effect a mental trigger has on our current mental state (frequency).

What is a mental trigger?

Spending a few minutes focused on MFM, I went through the usual exercises — not quite pushing myself, but enough to put enough distance between myself and the anxiety. It worked, even with a strong ‘pulling’ effect (anchors), trying to pull me back into that anxious state. This nearly worked but I had shifted my mental frequency range (MFR) to MFMLvl20 and had also set-up mental barriers at levels 1 – 19. My overall mind was not a fan though, with a large ‘banging’ reverberating across all the barriers from the anchors.

I continued cleaning up, now free from the anxiousness and pain. It wasn’t long however, until I thought about a recent event and once again started feeling the pain of the anxiety and depression. This got me curious as I wondered how my mind had been able to shift through all those barriers. Placing me back in a mental frequency with these anxious thoughts and feelings.

Through MFM, I observed that this was because there was a mental trigger attached to the thought (anchor). The trigger is important, because I could just continue cleaning and not worrying about anything, thinking about other everyday thoughts. But! As soon as I think about an anchor with a mental trigger, then that thought will change my state of mind (frequency). It’s almost like our mind is simply lighting up so it can focus on something of interest (anchor) and providing extra resources. Which in this instance is the communication (thoughts/feelings) of a frequency related to that anchor.

Simple example, I think about my family and I smile :). This itself is it’s own anchor and my mind automatically takes me to the relevant frequency, allowing me to experience related thoughts and feelings.

How to overcome the anchors themselves using MFM?

Ah… so we have discovered just how strong our anchors can be. Causing us to lose our mind’s focus to them and the related triggers. With MFM though, we can beat even this as we have complete dominion over our personal body. Even Zero Self can’t do much if I switch to MFMLvl1 and apply an MFM technique to all of the frequencies (From MFR1.6mil down to MFR0. Time to do an experiment to see if we can overcome even our own anchors and triggers!

Beginning the experiment, I switch to MFMLvl20, place barriers throughout all levels and think about how to approach this. Acting on inspiration (Zero Self is trying to act indiscreetlol), I consider the anchors themselves and apply a ‘white-wash’ over them all. Doing so at all frequencies in the MFMLvl1 range, from MFR0 to ~MFR1.6million. It seems to have worked, I am thinking about the anchors but they are not causing any emotional effects.

— one moment, a phone call —

Ok, I just heard that my partner has just been notified that her contract will be ending at the end of the year. Normally this should have me spiralling into an even deeper level of anxiety and depression. Yet it curiously doesn’t, I will have to see how long this ‘wash’ will work.

— one moment, kids need tomato sauce —

Back now, 10 minutes later and still unable to get back to the mental frequency aligned with my anxiety and depression. Logging the ‘wash’ MFM technique for further study.

— back the next day —

I came back to edit this article the next day and I am still unable to trigger the anxiety. Even when thinking directly about the anchors. Being the incredibly logical person I am, I choose to push a bit harder but I have cleared the triggers, so I’m still not feeling anxious. Not good enough, I visualise recreating the triggers as they were before. They look quite grimy and dirty.

Arrrgh!!! The anxiety is back, my stomach is knotting up and I’m starting to feel ill. Abort!…

— stops for a minute and reapplies the MFM wash technique —

Ah… all clear again, the anxiety and triggers are gone.

How to directly change your anchors (without MFM)?

I learned about our anchors during my lessons with Robbins Madanes Training. Changing them involves a step-by-step process that RMT share through their school, visit the RMT website to find out more.
