At varying points during our childhoods, we make decisions about ourselves that are untrue; we lie to ourselves simply because we don’t know any better. For example, many of us accept the belief that worrying about things outside of our control is a proper, healthy, natural response to stressful situations. This lie causes anxiety in 18% of the American population.
Using age regression and hypnotherapy, I guide my clients into their pasts, accessing memories stored in the subconscious and linked to the roots of limiting beliefs. Once the earliest memory related to that untruth is accessed, I guide the client to essentially rewrite his or her history… I ask them to use their imaginations, and as a team, we tell the subconscious a new story; I invite them to tell themselves the truth.
The subconscious mind does not know the difference between reality and imagination, so it easily accepts my suggestions as fact. The seeds of change (the suggestions) are immediately planted in the fertile soil of the subconscious. With proper cultivation and nourishment (it does take conscious effort to effectively retrain the brain), those seeds grow into new thoughts, and eventually new beliefs. The old behavior that resulted from the original limiting thought pattern becomes a thing of the past. Amazing!
