THE ACTIVATE TECHNIQUE: 
THE ART OF LIVING IN THE PRESENT MOMENT

The ACTIVATE Technique is a simple process that you can use to be more mindful and help you to stay positive in any situation.

It is based on techniques used in the martial art of Aikido and on modern positive psychology research.

You can use this technique to help you focus to learn a new trick, prepare for a big test, stay positive and centered in a dangerous situation, or any time you need to manage conflict and fear in your life. 

Activate your highest potential!

The three principles are FOCUS, CENTER and FLOW.   ACTIVATE these three three principles to help you to move through fear and conflict with grace and power by being present and mindful.

ACTIVATE: THE THREE PRINCIPLES

focus yourself
  • Acknowledge the situation and how you feel.
  • Use Focused Breath: Breathe out for a longer count than you breathe in. 4 counts in 6 counts out. This a great technique for managing anxiety.
  • Become aware of your judgements.
  • Stop negative self talk.
  • Choose a positive outlook.
  • Visualize your path.
Focus Dude
center yourself
  • Take a deep breath and slow your roll.
  • Find your physical center.
  • Bring your focus to your center by imagining energy being brought into it and coming out of it.
  • Connect with the world around you and ground yourself through your feet.
Center Dude
Enter the flow state
  • Maintain your vision.
  • Be Grateful.
  • Smile.
  • Choose the moment.
  • Drop in.

ACTIVATE!

To help you remember this process use the acronym ACTivate!

Aware/Accept- Become conscious of how your mind and body are reacting.

Center- Take a deep breath, pause and find your center by touching your thumbs to your body’s physical center.

Transform- Take another deep breath and start to notice what you are focused on.

Monitor your self talk. Smile. Stay Positive. Be grateful. Drop in and FLOW.

BE FUTUREPOSITIV!

The Futurepositiv philosophy is a personal commitment to make things better than we found them. To never stop progressing.

It is the core philosopy of the AVALON7 Collective.

The first step in being FUTUREPOSITIV is to practice the ACTIVATE principles in your daily life. They will help you to be mindful and stay positive.

The more people with the skills to remain conscious instead of living from a fear state the more we can activate the upward spiral of positivity in the world and build a brighter future for everyone.
