Introduction
My primary reason for writing this introductory eBook is to provide you with an overview of the MasterMind Matrix. This is of course easier said than done. The MasterMind Matrix is a map showing the unconscious, conscious and semiconscious patterns of behavior that we experience every single waking and sleeping moment. It is made up of many parts and segments that interlock and intertwine with one other in a variety of ways. Its therefore impossible to cover everything within this eBook, however I will do my very best to show how all the major pieces of the MasterMind Matrix come together to reveal the bigger picture of the human psyche. Along the way I will also provide you with relevant links (marked in dark blue), free resources and other materials that will help provide you with the tools you need to do further research into each topic area. Without further delay, let's begin our journey through the MasterMind Matrix.

Likewise, all of these segments have influenced the type of information we produce through radio, newspapers, books, television, and via the internet. This in turn has had a direct influence on our peers who influence usdirectly and indirectlythrough their behavior, values, beliefs and principles. In fact, their

Quantum Reality

4.6% of the Universe is made out of atoms, 23% of the Universe is made out of dark matter, and 72% is made up of a substance known as dark energy. Over the years several controversial studies have shown how our thoughts are able to directly influence and control the sub-atomic world and manipulate matter. In a classic study, Masaru Emoto discovered that water that is subjected to positive thoughts formed beautiful crystals, while water exposed to negative thoughts formed either no crystals or

deformed crystals. He concluded that our thoughts had a direct impact on the water. 60% to 70% of the human body is water. Therefore if our thoughts can do that to water, what are they doing to us? Other studies into Quantum Theory have shown how the very act of observing matter can directly affect and change reality.

Every decision we make and every action we take results from an insatiable desire to fulfil our 6 human needs. The Need for certainty, uncertainty, significance, and connection in our lives are all primary needs that we are attempting to satisfy on a daily basis. Whenever these 4 human needs go unmet, we struggle to find a sense of balance and satisfaction in our lives.

All of our Beliefs are built upon References, which are the foundational building blocks of everything that we have come to believe about ourselves, others and life. References are simply pieces of evidence that we have collected over time around certain topic areas in the real world.

Often when we don't have a strong sense of belief about something, we turn to faith to pull us through the events and circumstances of our lives. During these times we cultivate faith in ourselves, in others and in the fact that things will turn out for the best. Faith is in essence a low level belief that is based on no real evidence, logic, facts, statistics or references for that matter. It is instead built upon a sense of confidence and trust in a person, concept or thing. When we have faith in something we

cannot explain or support our sense of confidence with concrete proof. Instead we rely on our emotions to justify our faith and keep us moving forward. When faith is cultivated over an extended period of time it can help us acquire the necessary references we need to form ideas, opinions and eventually beliefs and convictions. It's a process that takes time.

Psychological Rules
Web Resources & Links
Our rules are unique psychological laws that govern our daily decisions, actions and behaviors. They influence how we interpret the world, absorb information and perceive others, circumstances and ourselves in relation to the world we live in. The rules that we allow to govern our lives have evolved through cultural conditioning, via conclusions that we have made over a lifetime, as a result of early childhood observations, experiments with trial and error, and through our responses to pain and pleasure.

A Representational System is an NLP model that examines how we process information on a daily basis through the five senses, which includes touch, taste, smell, sight and sound. Each of our five senses are connected to our state of mind (mental state) and directly influence how we interpret information on a daily basis. Associated with each Representational System are a set of submodalities, which determine how we process information through our five senses. Examples of

Moreover it is directly and indirectly influenced by everything we will discuss as we continue to make progress along the MasterMind Matrix.

Transforming Emotions

Lets leap to another segment of the chart which helps explain the hidden meaning behind our emotional experiences. Anthony Robbins classifies all emotions into 10 types. These include anger, discomfort, hurt, fear, frustration, disappointment, guilt, inadequacy, overwhelm and loneliness. These emotions are neither good nor bad; neither helpful nor unhelpful, and neither productive nor unproductive, it just depends on how we utilize them. Temperament, Mood & Emotion

For instance let's take a look at the emotion of frustration. Frustration is an experience of being held back from something that we really want. Most people might see this emotion as being quite limiting, however from another perspective being frustrated is rather empowering because it shows us that what we are currently doing is not working for us. We must therefore seek new information, begin to think outside the box and change our approach. Only then will we get what we want most out of life.

Knowing how to ask effective questions can help us find better answers, which can lead to more effective decisions. However, at times the answers we seek may confuse or breed uncertainty. During such times we can learn to tune in to our hunches or gut feelings for guidance. Our intuition is a heightened level of awareness or understanding we have about things. Its a subtle gut feeling or a hunch that reveals answers to questions asked. To the logical mind, intuition is the process of acquiring knowledge without inference or the use of reason.

Developing Intuition

Our heightened sense of awareness could very possibly be tied to our spiritual state of being. However, a more practical explanation suggests that our intuition is actually tied to the Reticular Activating System (RAS) in the brain, which determines what we pay attention to at any given moment in time. This therefore explains why asking the right kinds of questions can lead us to "intuitive" answers that we weren't consciously aware of before.

Here we get into the realm of unseen reality. This is a topic thats difficult to write about because there is little scientific evidence to back it up. But Ill do my best to briefly describe how it is intertwined into the MasterMind Matrix. There is a unified field that connects all of us. Some people call this field God while others see it as a source of energy or Infinite Intelligence. This Infinite Intelligence is a knowledge bank of collective information thats accumulated over eons. It draws to each person opportunities for growth that are

Spirit and Soul


Web Resources & Links
This is a topic that doesnt have much scientific evidence to back it up. However, I wanted the MasterMind Matrix to be a comprehensive representation of interconnecting elements of the physical, psychological and spiritual worlds. Only then would we really be able to begin to understand the bigger picture that helps explain why things are the way they are. We are more than just a body; we are an energetic being that is connected to everything that is on a sub-atomic level of existence. This is very important, because our connection to all that is signifies that

we are also able to influence things that seem to be outside of our reach or control. Hence, we step into the world of extrasensory perception, which takes place at a spiritual level of existence. Each of us has a Soul which is a mirror replica of the physical body that exists in time and space. We also have a Spirit which is our true state of being. Our Spirit is all-knowing and eternal, existing beyond space and time.

Universal Laws
Web Resources & Links
Life is built upon foundational laws that govern our existence. Some laws are quite obvious to us these days. For instance the laws of physics are widely accepted and rarely questioned. However, there are a set of other laws that also govern our lives. These laws are less understood, but equally as influential in the way they define our perception of reality. The Universal Laws listed within the graphic to the left are intertwined comprehensively into the fabric of the MasterMind Matrixgoverning every aspect of our psychological existence.

They are all metaphysical in nature; however science is slowly beginning to unlock the hidden mysteries that these laws bring forth into our lives.

When we begin to understand and align ourselves with these Universal Laws, we start to move into a state of effortless momentumallowing us to bring our goals and objectives into physical reality. Whether you accept these laws or not is irrelevant. Its how you use them that makes all the difference.

1st Life Coaching Session


Web Resources & Links
The MasterMind Matrix is built upon the foundational principles of life coaching, which are of critical importance as we begin moving through the chart. For this reason, the first few segments of the MasterMind Matrix break-down the coaching process in detail helping both coach and client to pinpoint the obstacles and challenges that lay ahead. During the 1st life coaching session it's important to provide my clients with a little background information about the life coaching process. I would therefore

outline the purpose of coaching, while also going through the different roles and expectation associated with coaching. In addition to this, it's important to identify any barriers that may interfere with the coaching process. And finally its paramount that one establishes strong levels of rapport with the client.

Addressing Client Concerns


Web Resources & Links
One of the first tasks on a life coach's agenda is to address their client's concerns. A client often chooses to hire a life coach because they seek assistance with overcoming a personal problem, challenge or setback. For this very reason its important for a life coach to obtain the client's story, to get a deeper insight and understanding into their concerns, while also attending to their strengths, perceptions and attitudes.

Addressing Client Concerns

One of the most effective techniques to use at this stage of coaching is to ask the client to create a metaphor that represents their problems. This metaphor will help them to develop confidence while encouraging creativity and solution oriented thinking. Its also critical here to help the client identify the resources they have that could assist them to overcome their concerns.

Identifying and Evaluating Reality


Web Resources & Links
It's difficult for a life coach to help a client achieve their goals and objectives if they do not understand a client's current reality. The two IQ Matrix Maps under the spotlight here help a life coach to identify several very important key critical factors that will naturally lay down the foundations for future coaching sessions. Firstly, a life coach needs to identify the obstacles that may be preventing their client from moving forward. In addition, they also need to pinpoint the client's

Finally, a life coach should also identify a client's behavior patterns, their success strategy, (what they are doing that is helping them get what they want) and analyse their client's learning style, which will help with setting tasks and objectives.

Concluding Thoughts
Throughout this eBook Ive attempted to cover a lot of ground in small manageable chunks in order to keep things as simple as possible. However, I do hope that you have found the accompanying web resources, books and videos to be of great value in helping you dig deeper into each of these areas. There is so much more that couldve been said, in fact I have literally only skimmed through the major chunks of the MasterMind Matrix without delving into the details. However, if you enjoyed this journey and would like to continue to dig even deeper into each of these topics than I encourage you to subscribe to the MasterMind Matrix blog.
