How To Have A Free Mind On Mountaineering

A good mental form requires the use of the mind so that our attention can flow freely at the moment present in this moment, as the situation dictates. If the mind dwell on their expectations and desires, she will interfere with our ability to understand the current situation and deal with it effectively.
So, don’t let the mind dwell in such places. A State of mind that doesn’t dwell on limiting forms is known as having a mind free. He is free of mental attachment to expectations or desired results that interfere with the effective use of our attention.
I had the experience of a mind ‘ inhabitant ‘ last month climbing the via “Wish I Was Trad” (wanted to be traditional-VII br) in Castle Rock, in Tennessee, a via a corded sports. I had climbed the lower part and was on a rest two metres below the last plate of via. My arms were muscular and I was struggling to regain my strength.
My mind thought about how hard the climb would be in a physical state so tired, and I wouldn’t find a position to sew the next plate. I made three moves in the direction of it using some grab small, I was pumped and desescalei back to rest. My mind was not free; She was dwelling in an expectation of trouble.
We can understand how to develop a free mind investigating the relationship between maps and territories. The maps are our mental conceptions of situations; the territories are the reality, the situation of fact. The maps are mental conceptions of actual territories.
If we approach the challenges with a map orientation-to-territory, so we started with our mental map and the design in real territory. We seek to validate the territory to our map of mind. Think about how this is limiting in the context of rock climbing.
We’re tired, thinking they climbing will be difficult or impossible for us, and then we designed this mental state on the rock, in what could be quite doable.The mind is mental expectations of difficulty, reducing our ability to focus our attention effectively.
We can reverse this process to improve our mental strength. We tackle the challenges with an orientation of territory-to-map. Look first for the territory, create our mental maps based on what we perceive, and modify our maps while enter the territory.
In a climb, we identified the features first: the protrusions and rock entries that create a path of least resistance between us and the next break. Next, create mind maps based on what we realized: we combine this with our past experiences. Finally, climb and we modify our maps based on what we found when we enter the territory. The mind doesn’t dwell on any expectation of trouble. Our attention flows freely among the necessary tasks that occur at the time.
A situation of escalation is a useful example for how this process works. The way of the Warrior the climbing process breaks into two parts: stop and think with the mind, or move to move with the body. Use a specific process to think, looking first for the territory to collect objective information. Next, we create our mental maps based on this objective information. Finally, we use a specific process to act, so that we can be responsive to modify our maps in the territories that we are discovering.
Reflecting on my effort on “I Wish I was Trad”, I realized that I had allowed my mind predeterminasse how hard the climb would be. I had adopted a map orientation-to-territory, starting with the mind maps in my mind of how hard the climb would be based on my physical fatigue. I decided to revert it.
I looked in the territory, the route first. I focused my attention in thinking, to identify the path of least resistance for the next plate. I saw the little grab that I had used previously, and some grab standing new left. These grab standing created a different path for the climb. I also recognized that this was a situation of escalation in sight, so I would have to modify my mental map for anything found out while climbing in new territory.
Next, I set an intention of focusing my attention while climbing. If I keep the warning in mind, then she would cling to anything that she knew how difficult. Instead, I focused my attention on the body, relax, relax and modify my plan according to what I found.
I used the little grab, stepped to the left to use the new grab up and climbed up to the plate. I found a vertical slot hidden next to the plate. It was a crushing solid finger, making it easy to stitched. To keep the attention on my body, I was able to let it flow freely through the territory of climbing, to use the new grab of feet and hands that had discovered.
Do something specific to maintain an orientation of territory-to-map. When we think, we focus our attention to collect objective information while looking in the territory first. Then, we allow our attention moves to the mind, to match our past experiences with what we perceive in the territory.
Finally, we turn attention to the body when we climbed. Doing this frees the mind from clinging to your expectations and desires, and allows our attention to flow freely from task to task as the situation dictates.
Practice tip: there is no spoon
Your mind will judge the difficulty erroneously and interfere with your effort in climbing. It will focus your attention first in mind, creating a mind map of difficulty does not represent the territory of climbing precisely.
Instead, when you’re on a break:
 Look up in the territory, to identify the next plate and the characteristics of the rock leading down to her.
 Next, draw up a map, a plan for climbing, based on your past experience and what you noticed when looking in the territory.
 Finally, take action, climb in the territory, by modifying your map when necessary according to what is discovering the territory of climbing.
