Change is not easy. Changing our beliefs about our self or changing a habit or pattern we are used to is a great challenge for everyone. There are many things that can get in the way of change, but one thing is for sure: Our first block is what we know and do now and knew and did in the past. We cannot change anything until we are ready to give up the old ways we have done things in the past. When we move toward our goal, we will encounter obstacles along the way that will try to sabotage us in an effort to keep us in the same place.

For mental-sided people, one of their obstacles can be that they feel they no longer need to act after thinking. The thinking is enough. They do not feel that they need the support of others because they are independent and above most people’s standards as they go about their work with no time for other people’s priorities. They have not yet learned that you have to do it yourself and you cannot do it alone. They are fearful that they may lose their identity or change the way they think about themselves. They are uncomfortable about being vulnerable and certainly are not well-developed in expression of feelings.

Techniques and suggestions for AIR people would be to get more in touch with their bodies. One great series of poses to do is some rounds of the Sun Salutation. Here, they reach up and then draw down. Another technique for the AIR-preferred mental-sided is to massage their ears, stimulating their body systems through their ear reflexes.

The next few pages provide some tools and techniques for mental-sided AIR people.

When the AIR expression is balanced and maturely developed, we express intelligence, compassion, forgiveness, and humility while living a life of humanitarian service.

We start our clarification and coaching process with the mental function of AIR: “Who am I?”

Next, we activate the process with actions of the social-mental function of FIRE: “What should I do?”

Stay awake, aware, and alert and strive to lead a well-tempered life – a life that possesses both hardiness and flexibility.  The good news is that once you are awake, it’s hard to go to sleep again, but if you do, do it on purpose and prepare yourself for the consequences.
