I was teaching self-hypnosis to a client last week and an old definition for hypnosis came into my mind: The ability to convince yourself, or unconvince yourself of something.
I laughed when I realized how good people are at self-hypnosis – negative self-hypnosis. The most powerful suggestions are the ones you give to yourself. Because the majority of them are negative, you create limiting beliefs that run your life. Most of these beliefs are misperceptions, or put another way, are lies.
To unconvince yourself, you must first discover the lies you hold about yourself and your life situations. Then, to be rid of them, you must convince yourself to replace them with the beliefs you want – the truth. Self-hypnosis is about intention. Goals are for the future, but intention is about now. About changing perspectives and imagining things as if they already were.
Make a list of your lies and your truths. What intentions will you make to set things straight?
And, if you are struggling to find those truths, give me a call.
