Frequently Asked Questions
What is mindfulness?
Mindfulness is simply about self awareness and accepting what you think and feel in the moment.
You don't need to spend hours or be a monk or nun to do it. Practicing just a little each day can make a profound difference to your stress levels and have a positive impact on your life.
What are affirmations?
Self-Affirmation Theory was made popular by Professor Claude Steele in the late 1980s.
The unique prediction that the theory makes is that people have a strong desire to maintain a positive self-image, therefore, when people experience a specific self-threat, they can overcome the unpleasant feelings associated with the threat by affirming an equally important aspect of themselves.
A 2015 study led by Christopher Cascio and Emily Falk used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to find that self-affirmation activates well-known reward centers in the brain.
Studies have shown that we have roughly 50,000 subconscious thoughts a day and around 80% are negative.
Repeating affirmations can squeeze out the negative thought loops and most importantly, encourage self-awareness with consistency.
Why do I find it hard to believe affirmations I read?
There are potentially several reasons.
1. Subconscious blockages like dissociative amnesia,
a condition in which a person blocks out information about their life usually associated with a highly stressful event.
This often occurs when our brains attempt to protect us from the potential pain of revisiting past trauma.
2. Conscious blockages like holding onto secondary benefits. This is where the advantage of staying in a particular position or state is seen to be better than letting go, even if it's not healthy. Perceived advantages may include extra attention, sympathy, avoidance of work, financial gain or control over others.
3. When the 'why' isn't strong enough. If you're not bothered or the pain isn't significant enough, you're less likely to make the necessary effort.
4. Environment. Letting go of toxic people and places to create the best surroundings for your progress.
5. Habits. Letting go of practices that sabotage your progress to create new ones that serve you better.
6. You need to create your own.
How often should I use them?
There are no rules. Spoon recommends daily usage. Create your affirmation when you first awaken. use them when you feel challenged, face fear, conflict or to unwind when headed to bed. Find what works for you.
Why should I create my own?
Creating affirmations relevant to your personal situation will make them more believable and thus easier for you to be consistent.
How often do I share?
During the course, you will share to the private group daily for 30 days and make a note in your personal journal.
If you would like a completion certificate you will have to engage in the mindfulness activities, submit your 30 affirmations and 1000 word reflection piece within 7 days of completing the challenge.
What if I need more support?
You can drop a message in the private group, email or book a call.
1-2-1 sessions can be arranged where necessary. We would also encourage you to seek medical advice where appropriate too.
About the course Author
Elroy 'Spoonface' Powell
aka 'Spoon The Voice Guy', is an award winning voice actor, author and mindfulness consultant who has worked on a wide range of projects throughout his career. One of his earliest achievements is as the voice of the cover of the Barry White song "You See the Trouble with Me", which reached the top of the UK Singles Chart, and sold several million copies across the globe. The song featured Spoon in collaboration with the two members of the musical group Black Legend.
Spoon has leant his talents to a number of film and television performances which include Rosser Weno in Star Wars Episode VII and Marvin on the market of popular UK Soap East Enders. Recent engagements include Fighting With My Family, Pirates, Jingle Jangle and the Harry Enfield 100 years of BBC special. These performances are bolstered by several other roles which he has played in a number of television series and short films.
Spoon is a BAFTA member and has also worked extensively in the area of video games, recently winning the One Voice Conference award for Best Male Voice in Gaming with his performance in Techland's Dying Light 2 as one of the main characters. Spoon voices the major character Jack Matt who is the leader of a rebellious army faction called the Peacekeepers. Spoon has also voiced the character of Magnus in the Dota 2 card game Artifact as well as a number of other roles in the video game industry.
Seeing a need for more honest information about voice acting, Spoon successfully collaborated with colleagues to write Voice Over Secrets. This book features advice from Spoon himself and many other talented voice actors which include Ramesh Mahtani, Paul Rose, Vicky Tessio and Bhav Parmar. They provide deep insights into the industry and craft of voice acting. Struggling voice over artists of any level will find useful tips in the book based on the experience of these seasoned professionals.
Aside from his various acting and music roles, he is also a major proponent of the practice of mindfulness. He sees this as an effective way of combating stress in an increasingly stressful world. He has leant his voice talents and his extensive experience to the wellness industry in which he shares mindfulness tools with business owners to reduce stress and increase productivity. Additionally, Spoon hosts corporate mindfulness sessions to encourage employees to embrace the practice of mindfulness in order to improve their mental well-being.
Spoon's approach to mindfulness focuses on reframing limiting beliefs, mostly through the creation of positive statements aligned with an individual's personal circumstances. These affirmations help to facilitate personal growth and are used as a means of developing a greater sense of self-awareness. The affirmations provide a foundation for the creation of positivity in the manner in which an individual interacts with themselves and with the world at large. This can lead to a greater sense of acceptance, inner-peace, and a snowball effect of positive change in an individual's life.
