The MasterMind Matrix chart is a personal self-coaching tool that breaks down the psychology of personal success and achievement, allowing you to pinpoint your strengths, limitations and self-sabotaging habitual patterns of behavior that are currently preventing you from achieving your life’s goals and objectives.

Just about every IQ Matrix map that has been published on this blog makes up a small segment of the MasterMind Matrix chart.

Given that the MasterMind Matrix is composed of over 150 major components, and a myriad of smaller pieces, you can see how far we still have to go before all the pieces of the puzzle are finally brought together.

Today I would like to focus on breaking down the twelve MasterMind Matrix zones, while also providing you with a glimpse into the practical application and impact that each zone can have on your daily decisions and actions

Before proceeding, you may like to take a personal journey through the MasterMind Matrix. This article will take you on a personal voyage through the MasterMind Matrix chart step-by-step. You may find that it is a rather unexpected and surprising read, one that will awaken deep insights and understandings into your personal psychology and habitual patterns of behavior. In fact, reading through this article from beginning to end may irrevocably transform the way you think about your life from this moment moving forward.

I’ve also released an eBook about the MasterMind Matrix, which goes into even more detail while providing you with hundreds of additional online resources where you can gain more information about each of the individual segments of the chart. This eBook is available for free to IQ Matrix email subscribers. Once you subscribe you will receive access to the eBook within the first week of your subscription.

The eBook is actually based on the 2.0 version of the MasterMind Matrix and not the original version of the chart you will find below.

Personal Life Coaching: Preparation Stage

The Preparation Stage of the MasterMind Matrix will take you through an evaluation process that will provide you with new perspectives on your current life reality. This stage is an essential component of the one-to-one life coaching process and is a critical tool for self-coaching purposes.


As a professional life coaching tool, it is designed to assist clients to take account of their present circumstances, while focusing their mind on potential future outcomes.

This stage addresses your current reality as it relates to your environment, behavior, capabilities, beliefs, values, personal identity and your spiritual connection with the world. It also helps you explore your present reality based on a specific set of criteria that will help you to identify deep-seated patterns of behavior that are automatically governing your daily life decisions and actions.

From there it expands into your past and identifies the conditioned patterns that have created your current life circumstances while pinpointing future trends and consequences that may result if you continue down your current path.

This stage concludes with an analysis of your learning preferences as they pertain to your life. Understanding these personal learning preferences can help you to better understand yourself and your patterns of behavior.

Once you are able to fully grasp and understand your current life circumstances, it will set the groundwork that will help unlock hidden unconscious patterns of behavior.

Even though this stage is a component of the MasterMind Matrix, it is nevertheless an independent piece of the puzzle that doesn’t necessarily filter through into the cyclical cycle of the chart. It is rather an analysis stage that sets the course for what is to come as you begin your journey through the MasterMind Matrix.

Habitual Thinking Zone

The Habitual Thinking Zone presents you with a break down of how your conscious brain and unconscious mind influences your daily life choices, decisions, actions and habitual patterns of behavior as you journey through the MasterMind Matrix.

Each and every fragment of this zone brings to light the unconscious interactivity that takes place within the recesses of your mind as you go about your daily activities.


This zone is designed to awaken a conscious understanding of the powerful workings of your mind.

Each and every thought you have, every decision you make, and every action you take begins within, mostly at an unconscious level of awareness.

The moment you come to understand the powerful workings and mechanics of your biological thinking processor is the moment you will begin to comprehend the power you have to influence and transform your current reality and future life circumstances.

Breaking it Down

This zone addresses all aspects of our internal thinking process including the conscious brain, inner mind, neural associations, the role of the hippocampus, right brain and left brain connection, thalamus, the reticular activating system, nervous system, emotional mind, amygdala, hypothalamus and more.

The Big Picture

It is said that “we are what we think about most of the time”.

This essentially means that your life circumstances are simply a reflection of the thoughts that you have allowed to dwell within the recesses of your mind on a daily basis. The moment you acknowledge this and accept this as fact is the moment you begin to take personal responsibility for your life and move forward towards the attainment of your goals and objectives.

Understanding the intricate workings of your mind is not essential to the achievement of success, however, a basic understanding is necessary if you are currently overwhelmed with the habit of neglecting personal responsibility for your emotions, decision, actions and present life circumstances.

Bodily Physical Zone

The Bodily Physical Zone presents you with a break down of the role that our physical body plays in respect to our mind, emotions, and actions.


This zone is designed as a means of awakening a simple yet profound understanding and awareness of the importance of our physical body and how it relates to the success we would like to achieve in our lives.

Breaking it Down

This zone addresses numerous aspects of our biology relating to our physical organs, immune system, the role of our hormones, DNA makeup and our ongoing health and well-being as it relates to the physical, spiritual, intellectual, emotional and social aspects of our lives.

The Big Picture

If your mind represents the driver sitting behind the wheel of the car then your body represents the car itself. If the car is not running at peak efficiency then it simply does not matter how intelligent or strategically-minded the driver is.

This zone brings to light the importance of the mind-body connection, and how it’s relevant to our long-term and ongoing levels of success.

Look after your body, and your mind will reap the rewards. Conversely, neglect your body, and your mind will suffer the consequences. When your mind is riddled with lackluster energy then your habitual patterns of behavior will reflect that same energy and you will find yourself cycling through the Path of Self-Destruction over-and-over again.

Spiritual Consciousness Manifestation Zone

The Spiritual Consciousness Manifestation Zone presents you with an understanding about the spiritual aspects of life and how they interact with the body and mind to help you manifest your goals and desires into physical reality.


This zone is designed to put into perspective the underlying power of our spiritual awareness and how this can transform our physical realities.

When you align your goals and life objectives with your spiritual purpose, then you will naturally wield a power that will help bring forth your desires into your present life circumstances.

Breaking it Down

This zone addresses the impact and influence that the spiritual body, soul, infinite intelligence (God), the collective conscious mind, meditation, intuition, and that certain universal laws have on our lives — helping us to manifest our goals and objectives.

The Big Picture

Our spiritual consciousness is thoroughly intertwined with the physical aspects of our lives. What we think about, the decisions we make and how we behave is intricately interwoven into our spiritual consciousness.

Tapping into this aspect of our lives through meditation and self-awareness can help us to access a vast reservoir of solutions and answers to the problems we face on a daily basis. As a result, this zone will help you to connect and awaken an intuitive force within yourself that will bring forth the answers you seek as you go about your day. However, please be aware that this zone is very esoteric in nature and is not backed by solid scientific proof. It is rather built upon a foundation of faith and a deep-seated understanding about the hidden forces of life that help bring forth the laws of attraction into our reality.

The Quantum Field or Metaphysical Zone

The Quantum Field of Metaphysical Zone puts into perspective the bridging gap between science and the physical powers that our thoughts wield to help us transform our lives.


This zone is designed to help awaken an understanding about the connection between our thoughts and the energy-manifestation process from a scientific and esoteric perspective.

Breaking it Down

This zone addresses quantum mechanics and how it relates to the thought and energy patterns that we bring forth into our daily lives.

The Big Picture

Over time science has brought to light the notion that everything within this world is made up of the same form of energy.

At a quantum level of understanding, this energy has no separation. In fact, at a quantum level, everything is connected intrinsically with everything else within this universe, which could potentially validate intuitive thinking. Moreover, this energy is constantly shifting and interacting with itself, thusly leading to varying vibrational frequency levels that influence our thoughts, behaviors, and emotions at a deep-seated level of awareness. In fact, your personal level of vibration may actually influence what you will tend to attract into your life on a daily basis.

A high level of vibration will attract other objects of the same vibrational level just like a magnet attracting metal particles. On the other hand, when you project low levels of vibration, you will likewise attract other physical and emotional objects with the same low level of vibration, which can bring about negative events and circumstances into your life.

It is said that “like attracts like” and “you attract what you project into the world”.

Our vibrational energies do influence what we project into the world, and as a consequence what we attract into our lives.
