A book that I first read as a teen (The Power of the Subconscious Mind) still influences my thinking today regarding the possibility of making quick, effective and lasting changes. Our belief system appears to be held as programming in the subconscious mind capable of limiting our choices. EMDR, EFT, BSFF and other methods can all be used to eliminate negative emotions and replace negative and limiting beliefs in the subconscious mind with more empowering beliefs. By locating and moving old, stuck energy and negative emotions from the body, we can stop living from a place of automatic emotional reactivity to a more neutral emotional state where more choices are possible.
Our natural state of wholeness is to be in a loving, limitless state, rather than in fear. When we are young our brains are in a receptive learning state. This helps ensure our survival. We learn quickly and generalize from our experiences.
Early experiences with frustration, fear, pain and overwhelm can cause us to make generalizations about life and about ourselves based on our limited intellectual awareness. These beliefs can become maladaptive as our life circumstances change. For example, the three year old who displeases an adult and gets a negative response may feel shame or sadness and make conclusions about his worth, and about the conditional nature of love. Even in loving homes, children may conclude that they are not worthy, not good enough, pretty enough, smart enough, and so on.
Our brains are wired to take in and summarize information quickly, especially at early ages, to help ensure survival. The brain makes generalizations from our early experiences. These early conclusions that we make form the software programs that we continue to run until they are updated. You may find it hard to believe, but the situation bothering you today most likely traces back to an unresolved, repeating trauma, or “program,” installed a very long time ago. Have you ever wondered, “Why does this keep happening to me?” This applies to positive and negative experiences.
This software is broadcast in our energy field as if we were wearing t-shirts displaying the coding. Messages like this are available to people we meet. Maladaptive, limiting beliefs, such as the following, limit our relationships and our ability to make positive and lasting changes:
- “You probably won’t like me.”
- “I’m trouble.”
- “I’m not pretty, capable, competent.”
- “I’m just not any fun.”
We can tell what our software is and what is displayed on our t-shirt by observing the world we live in. What is your money situation, the status of your relationships? How happy are you?
With powerful new energy modalities based on ancient principles of acupuncture and modern understanding of how the brain functions, our past can be healed and our programming can be updated. We can switch from reacting automatically to people and circumstances and we can have a choice in how we respond.
If you choose to have a different experience or to enhance the one you have, I can help you “update your software”, which will allow you to have more options to create the life you desire. Together, we can examine the software and update it. I don’t know HTML or other programming codes, but with the help of powerful energy techniques, I can help you identify your old software, delete it and install new software that will support and guide you to the life you want. This will update the “message” on your t-shirt and you will be free from emotional reactivity. This will give you more choices in your life.
The good news is that you, and no one else, is responsible for how you feel. Even if you are in difficult circumstances, you can develop an empowered perspective to these circumstances. This will allow for the possibility of natural, positive transformation. Once the emotional triggers and charges are neutralized, you are free to make informed choices in your life.
My personal interests include hiking, biking, boating and skiing. I also enjoy photography, playing scrabble, the card game hearts, and simple sewing projects.
