Belief in oneself
What you believe about yourself is affecting you mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically - more than anything else in life that you meet, for the greatest encounter in life is when you come face to face with yourself.
The opinion you have of yourself is making or breaking you.
It is constructing your life or destroying it.
It is bringing you greater power with which to face the struggles of each day or its causing you to falter and fall.
The opinion you have of yourself at this moment is making your present day happier or resulting in a day of depression.
Such is the power of self belief, no power is greater than that of self belief, you are either your own best friend or your own worst enemy in life, it is your decision.
Every person on this earth while still conscious are able to think, has an opinion about himself, some of these beliefs are true, however the majority are false.
Three-fourths of the worlds population live in mass ignorance with little or no self education. We must also realize that even those who are educated by our current standards are lacking self- education. They believe in the thinking of the majority, and thus are taught to believe in themselves based on man's limited view's of himself.
Through hypnosis we can change our limiting belief systems.
The subconscious mind is the deeper seated, non-analytical part of the mind where habits, thought patterns, beliefs, memories and fears are stored. It is responsible for up to 90% of our thought processes and nearly all of our automatic life choices.
The conscious mind is the analytical and critical part of the mind responsible for logic, reasoning and voluntary bodily actions, such as moving an arm or leg. Freud compared the mind to an iceberg, with the conscious mind being the small area above the water and responsible for only 10% of our thought processes. Whereas the vast area below water represents the subconscious mind and is responsible for our beliefs, emotions, habits, values, protective reactions, memory, imagination and intuition. The subconscious is powerful and this is why we work directly with this part of the mind in hypnosis.
The good news is that ‘reprogramming’ ourselves is totally doable. The subconscious mind learns by repetition rather than logic. It is possible to retrain and reprogram your mind by repeatedly planting positive affirmations, beliefs, and visualizations to crowd out the old patterns, which eventually lose their strength and hold. Daily repetition of a new replacement ‘program,’ thought, or belief for a period of time will bring about profound change. This is why it is important to listen to a positive suggestion audio recording regularly if this is provided by your hypnotherapist and in my view, repetition is a big part of any therapy of this type.
