Ever been the victim of self-sabotage? Is your mind your ally or is it placing obstacles in your path? Experiencing dissatisfaction with quality of relationships, communication, or harbouring the secret hope to finally triumph over habits such as smoking, nail biting or even compulsive shopping. Then engage your subconscious to generate the desired behaviours.
Frequently no physical reasons can be found for problems with weight control, memory loss, difficulty with concentration or mental stamina, but still the condition prevails. This may be a signal of unconscious protection at work, however misplaced!
As far as weight problems are concerned, the underlying motivation may vary from fear of having a relationship, to fear of losing a relationship, to grief over loss of a relationship or a loved one. An unconscious belief could be that being overweight will protect from harm or it could hide the fear of intimacy, intense shyness or a host of other motives. The motives are usually as varied as the individuals experiencing problems with weight loss or with weight maintenance.
Conscious and Unconscious in Partnership
More significant than just knowing the deep-seated motives is the opportunity to collaborate with your unconscious mind to create new and empowering behaviours! Using NLP, meditation and hypnosis or self-hypnosis to communicate with the unconscious, you can generate alternative ways of behaving, feeling and performing.
Allowing your inner or unconscious mind to reveal hidden processes or motives compelling you to display behaviour or experience emotions that are detrimental to what you desire and intent creating, promotes the creation of new and flexible patterns.
Using food or any other substance as an emotional crutch or shield lead to feelings of inadequacy and self-doubt. The gain, though it could be valuable in your context or personal reality, cannot compensate for lost opportunities, options and choices.
Intense frustration, irritation and even anger result from the failure to either stick to a diet or to maintain ideal weight, leading to an ever escalating pattern of negative feelings and thoughts, more overeating and more intense feelings of desperation. The same is true for the inability to finish what you start, remember facts that help you to manage your life more effectively or constantly feeling too tired to live your life fully.
If you are ready to gain insight into the hidden motives behind habits, addictions, behaviors, limiting beliefs or emotions, you can achieve both the insight and change needed to make things happen, instead of harbouring secret hopes without taking the necessary action.
You can be the master of your destiny by engaging your unconscious to gain control over your reality and create new experiences, feelings or habits.
Your unconscious is your ally in life, and will be too in your quest for a radiant life!
