When your mind is foggy and you’re feeling a bit tired, it’s really hard to make the right decision in your life. That’s when it’s time to either take a power nap, or simply go to be for the night.
It’s amazing how rest can rejuvenate the mind and help us to think more clearly and to come up with the answers we are struggling to find. ANOTHER WAY of getting awesome clarity AND mental rest is to use hypnotherapy.
Whether it’s self hypnosis (meditation with visualization) or working with a hypnotherapist and doing some guided meditation, you’ll learn to relax and go deep to where you can find the answers. Check out the video below.
I’m 16 years old. My parents had divorced a few years earlier, mainly because of my father’s alcoholism. And now, my mother is marrying another alcoholic, and my father, who I felt close to, moves 1,500 miles away. I feel lost and my self-worth drops. I’m thinking: Does anyone care about me? (By the way, I never saw my dad again, and he died when I was 42.) My new step father dies of a heart attack a year after my mother marries him. So, I meet an older guy, who I’m thinking will give me the security I need, and we get married when I’m 19.
Now I’m 28 years old. By then, I had three horrendous pregnancy losses: A stillborn girl at eight months, then an ectopic pregnancy that required surgery, and a premature baby that didn’t survive. My husband cheats on me with a prostitute and is addicted to various sedatives, and threatens me with bodily harm, so I get a restraining order and a divorce. I had moved to a state where I didn’t have friends, I had lost my children, and at the age of 28, I feel like my life is OVER.
Sometimes the very thing that we want scares the crap out of us. Why is that, and what do you do about it?
When we go after our dream, we begin to find ourselves in uncharted territory. And it can get very scary, very quickly, and this will stop us in our tracks.
As we begin to move out of our “comfort zone” to what we thought we actually wanted, we can begin to question why we ever made that decision. Click for more below, and watch the video where I talk about this.
This morning, someone asked me what I do. And every time I break it down, it comes down to helping people take these three steps:
- Heal your past.
- Create your future.
- Live an authentic life.
Sounds simple, doesn’t it? The truth is millions of people are struggling with this every day. Whether it’s an entrepreneur who’s confused and stuck, or a professional woman who’s thinking of getting a divorce, or someone who’s grappling with PTSD; it’s truly the same process. All. The. Same.
Let me explain with the how and the why this is necessary to be fulfilled as I go through each step.
- Heal your past. Would you put new decorations in your house if it needed a good cleaning? No. And you wouldn’t be doing the mindset work and focusing on what you want when you’ve got emotional baggage stuck in your subconscious mind. (That’s why people try to diet and they don’t lose weight because they’ve still got the emotional stuff going on.) So, It’s important to work through it and then move on to step two. I don’t care what it is that you’re trying to accomplish.
- Create your future. Getting clear on your direction is the next step. But, like tapping into the past within the subconscious mind, you need to dig deep into the emotions again to discover your true path. Get out of your head and into your heart. Be honest with yourself, and shut out what you think you should do, or what other people want you to do, or anything else that doesn’t align with your heart. It might sound corny, but it’s the only way.
- Live an authentic life. After you’ve healed the past and started on your path, it’s important to stay in that emotional guidance of your heart. And there are many roadblocks that can get in your way: Losing focus, being fearful or anxious, falling into mindset traps such as scarcity, and more. Creating mindset habits that will keep you steady and on your path so you’re living the life that’s truly YOU, and doing the work that’s in sync with who you ARE, is that authenticity that will leave you feeling that you’re living a life that’s full.
These steps have the power to get you into alignment with who you are, what you want, and get past the residual emotions and limiting beliefs that have kept you stuck living a life that’s not authentic.
You can try to do this on your own. But, I recommend you get some help with this from someone that has the skills and experience to help you work at a deep level. (And reading a book or watching a YouTube video doesn’t cut it.) Feel free to contact me, and find out how to get the results you want.
I recall when I was considering taking the giant leap from the J.O.B. I became keenly aware of the co-workers around me who were so miserable that it was affecting their health.
You know: The ones who have an excel spreadsheet that automatically calculates how many days are left before retirement. And believe me, some of them had a long way to go, even though they were looking a bit rough around the edges.
Not to be rude, but stress does take its toll.
Yesterday I saw a sign that read “if your dream doesn’t scare you, it isn’t big enough.”
That’s one of the best quotes I’ve seen in awhile. Going after our dream can scare the heck out of us. And I’ve learned it firsthand.
Do you ever find yourself trying to reach a goal, but you run out of “steam”?
Perhaps you were really inspired when you started, yet for some reason that inspiration has slowed down a bit.
Those are the moments when you need to find your “Why”. In other words, what is the inspiration behind what it is you are trying to accomplish? Is it for your family? Is it for a higher purpose?
