HOLDINGBACK

.
.

It might be that you crave peace of mind, success in your work , contentment in the family, achievement in sport, weight loss or whatever else that is important to you.

If only wanting were enough surely you would have it by now, yet do you never seem able to get where you want to be?

What is it that is holding you back ?

Perhaps I can use the power of story telling and analogy, both powerful tools in a hypnotherapists tool box, to illustrate what might be going on.

Many countries with less stringent animal rights still use elephants as part of their circus acts. These huge majestic beasts are often tethered in the circus compound by a weak rope tied to a short stake in the ground. How is it that this can hold a huge adult elephant who should easily have the power to pull such a stake out of the ground.

That is the power of conditioning !!

As a small cub the trainer tethers the elephant to the stake and however much he tries to pull the small elephant cannot get free. A powerful loop of conditioning is set up in the elephant’s brain. This becomes so effective that by the time he grows up the process is fixed and the belief so strong, he doesn’t even try to break free.

Can you see such how such conditioning could have been set down in your mind.

Are there beliefs from your past that are so fixed that you are not even aware of them ?

How can you break free of what is limiting you and harness the wonderful mechanism of your brain’s neuroplasticity, it’s power to change.

It is often said that the potential for change is in the power of the questions we ask ourselves.

Would you like to shine the spotlight of awareness on the limiting beliefs of your past,

Start by asking yourself some good searching questions. Our excuses about why we are stuck is often a very good place to start.

After all no one argues that they haven’t grown out of the shoes and clothes they were made to wear as children and so can now choose their own individual style.

In the same vein why hold onto old beliefs that you were also given in your past.

Today why not choose your own style in your beliefs as well !
