Did you know that your beliefs about yourself could make you or break you?
Take Katie for instance, she is 6 years old and in 1st grade. The teacher has been teaching the kids spelling all day, teacher is tired has a headache, just wants the day to be over. She calls Katie up to the board and tells her to spell “cat”. Katie goes up and writes “kat” on the board. All of the kids start laughing and making fun of her, “you’re stupid, you can’t spell.” She looks over at the teacher for some support and sees the teacher rubbing her throbbing head, eyes closed and looking weary. All of a sudden a seed (a belief) is planted in Katie’s subconscious mind, “I’m stupid, I can’t spell, I’m a disappointment.”
The all powerful subconscious mind now believes “I am stupid, I can’t spell, I am a disappointment.” Because the subconscious believes this it will create events and scenarios that reinforce that belief – Katie struggles her whole life with spelling, not her strong point. She is deathly afraid of pubic speaking, and she constantly sabotages herself, reinforcing the belief that she is a disappointment.
We all carry limiting beliefs that hold us back from experiencing a fuller more happy life. The most common I see are: I’m not worthy of (health), I don’t deserve (money), money is the root of all evil, I’m unlovable, I’m a failure. Some people are aware of their limiting beliefs but most people do not know what’s holding them back.
Think about it… how would someone be if they unconsciously believed that they were not worthy of health, how would they be if they believed themselves to be unlovable. You get the picture right? So maybe now you’re thinking about what your limiting beliefs could be and realizing why certain things have been happening over and over again throughout your life. And you may be saying, “Ok Kelly, that’s all fine and dandy, I now see why I am so stuck in my life, but how do I fix it?
Well, there is a way. You have to reprogram your subconscious mind with the new belief, “I am worthy, I deserve etc.” Unfortunately just repeating the affirmation over and over is not going to change the belief and this is why: let’s use “I don’t deserve health” as an example. Over the course of your life you have been sick a lot, been in accidents, now you are in your 40’s and you have a disease.
Because the conscious mind is observing, remembering and living these experiences it is almost impossible to convince the subconscious that it’s just a belief and can be changed.
A quick reminder: our conscious mind is the captain of the ship and the subconscious takes all of its instructions from the captain, good, bad, right or wrong, the subconscious just obeys. If the conscious mind believes something to be true, the subconscious believes it too.
The quickest and easiest way to reprogram the subconscious mind is with hypnosis. (You knew that was coming didn’t you?)
During hypnotic trance we bypass the part of the conscious mind that is remembering the years of pain and struggle, and because the conscious mind is out of the picture for a while the subconscious begins to take instructions from the hypnotherapist. The hypnotherapist starts the process of reprogramming the subconscious with positive beliefs.
When that critical conscious mind is out of the picture while in hypnosis the subconscious becomes highly responsive, it’s like a sponge, absorbing all the good, positive suggestions. People begin noticing in the days and weeks that follow, that they are thinking differently, talking differently, and that positive permanent changes are happening in their lives like magic.
When do you think you’ll have suffered enough? It doesn’t have to be that way. You can heal your life!
