Let Your True Story Come Alive! Part 5

storybook2Every experience leaves a trace.

Your life story is recorded in the memory banks of your subconscious mind. Every thought, word, deed, action, choice is there. Within your subconscious mind are templates that hold deep reserves of memory, association, feeling and belief that make up your narrative. Your subconscious records everything. You give it weight, order and meaning.

I have been telling stories for years.

As a hypnotherapist, when I work with you, I tell a story to your subconscious mind, based on what you tell me and what result you want. It has to be believable to the subconscious mind, otherwise it won’t accept it. Therefore, I must be a truth-teller in my work.

Let Your True Story Come Alive! Part 4

I work with people who are not living their true story.

When you change your false story to a true one, you:

  • Create a hand-crafted, authentic life where nothing goes to waste.
  • Turn regrets and sorrows into learning and growing.
  • Deepen your compassion, gratitude and joy of living.

When you heal your deepest wounds, you:

  • Honor and take care of yourself in healthy, new ways.
  • Resolve your paradoxes and contradictions.
  • Own your power.
  • Temper your negative ego and learn to recognize its lies and false stories.
  • Let your character, truth and integrity be your guide.

glassesYour true story is buried, not clear. Your perspective is skewed. My job is to help you see your true story—which may end up being very different from what you thought it was. Each pass you take at understanding and healing your story uncovers more of its true power. Of its light. Of its meaning and purpose. Nothing goes to waste. Everything that happened has value.

fairytaleWhat is the story you want to tell?

You may find yourself in a fairy tale – a completely false life. You may not even notice it. You may be asleep to it. Like the story of Sleeping Beauty, the first step is to awaken.

Often when you first awaken, you will encounter your obstacles. You’ll feel the pain, shame or sadness that set you to sleep in the first place.

When you seek greater success and abundance in your life, strong, loving relationships, meaningful work and fulfilling right livelihood, you will hit up against your false story. The one that stops you. It will stop you from a greater expression and expansion of yourself, and of your true story.

That false story resides in your subconscious mind as a subconscious construct or blueprint with corresponding beliefs, thoughts and feelings, decisions and choices attached to it. It feels true, but none the less is not. It may be time to let go of the past; to make a new blueprint that supports your new visions and dreams, and the abundance you desire.

storybookYou are the author of your story.

You can influence your story. You influence your story with your conscious intent to change, to heal, to make new. As you transform your story, you think and feel differently.

One of the most important ways to influence your story is to reflect upon what happened to you, what you experienced and to give it new meaning.

You begin to put your own imprint on your own story.

You decide. You can transform your story anytime, anywhere, anyway. That is your power.
Sometimes your story diminishes, limits, or holds you back from your dreams.

Sometimes your story is a drama, sometimes it’s a comedy, and sometimes it’s a tragedy. If you feel stuck in a tragedy, you can rewrite it. There are endless possibilities.

Let Your True Story Come Alive! Part 1

Once upon a time…
In a galaxy far, far away…
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…

The structure of the story is the structure of consciousness itself. We all tell stories all the time. We can’t not tell stories”
— Mike Daisy

storyOur lives are a story.

Our brains are wired to recognize story from day one. Stories are an integral part of our life from birth. As children we learned fairy tales, fables, family stories, songs, and poems. We communicate to ourselves and each other through story. Narrative is woven into everything.

It’s important to examine your story, to shine a light upon the old narrative and see what is really true.
You may not be able to control what happens to you, especially in childhood. As infants and children you are imprinted and influenced by others in your life, both in positive and negative ways.

But your story is continually unfolding – alive, vibrant and responsive to you.

You can rewrite the parts of your story that began long ago and just carried forward, but no longer represent your life today or reflect who are now.

The Subconscious Mind: An Owners Manual Part 4

Your subconscious mind cannot make decisions, but it can take direction.

Tips for using affirmations:

h
Here are some tips to remember when working with your subconscious:

  • When you want to program something by using affirmations, it is important how you talk to your subconscious. It knows when you are telling a lie.
  • If you say to your subconscious, I am healthy, as your way of affirming health, your subconscious will look at your current level of health and say, OK, if you call this health, we will maintain this level for you. If you say, I am becoming healthier every day, it gives the subconscious a process to work with.
  • If there is data in the subconscious that contradicts the affirmation you are using, the subconscious will bring that forward for you to clear. It is important to acknowledge your resistance rather than be afraid of it. Once the resistance is cleared, the affirmation becomes more powerful.
  • Another way to put the affirmation: I am willing to receive more and more good health and vitality into my life every day. You will become more willing and more able to receive good health. Here’s another example of a good way to talk to your subconscious: I am healthy enough – and becoming more healthy.
  • Three is a magic number to the subconscious. It will pay attention when you do or say something three times. It will begin to form a pattern. This is known in advertising as the “power of three.”
  • Your subconscious cannot make decisions. Decisions are always made on a conscious level. Your subconscious must follow it’s programming, regardless if it is positive or negative. If the programming is that you should always finish everything on your plate, it will always give you the message to clean off your plate until you change that message.
  • When you are working on a problem, or want to find the answer to something, try incubating it. Imagine an incubation chamber, locker, or cupboard and place the problem in there. Some people need to sleep on it, others will receive the solution when they are busy with something else. If nothing comes in three days go back to the incubation chamber and open it up. Spend some time with the issue and try again.
  • When you want to create something, use your imagination consciously. It doesn’t matter if you do not see an actual picture. You can sense it. When it comes to visualization, some people are seers and some are sensors. For example: you have a sore shoulder. You imagine a warm towel placed on it. The subconscious responds by dilating the blood vessels in that area to promote healing. What you imagine doesn’t have to be literal or accurate. Your subconscious mind understands your intention.

Your subconscious is a significant part of your mind. You can use it to help yourself create your own positive reality. Over time, you can become proficient at working with your subconscious mind. Once you understand how to talk to your subconscious, your affirmations will be effective and authentic.

The Subconscious Mind: An Owners Manual Part 3

Visualization is a potent tool to reach your subconscious mind.

Working With the Subconscious

With effort, you can learn to go directly into the subconscious when you want to change, heal or create something. I have found guided visualization to be a potent tool to get into the subconscious. The subconscious mind loves images and responds well to them. Image combined with feeling – even more powerful.

Image + Feeling + Repetition = Clear Result

You can do a guided visualization for yourself, by reading into a tape recorder and then playing it back. Or maybe you can get a friend to read it to you.

As you prepare to start any kind of meditative work it is important to find a comfortable position to sit or lie down – to have a comfortable, safe space. If you have your own special way of relaxing, go ahead and do that. Or you can take three deep breaths, stretch, then relax. Set your goal of what you want to work on in your subconscious and then begin the visualization.

Your Subconscious Mind

Mind Maze

  • Imagine your subconscious as a maze-like structure such as a big library, maze, warehouse or high tech lab. These particular images will allow you to more solidly connect with your subconscious.
  • Create a guide to help you navigate the vast, subterranean territory of the subconscious mind – a librarian, warehouse manager, lab tech, who knows everything about your subconscious and can guide you where you want to go. Every time you enter your subconscious, call your guide first, then tell them what you want to do or where you want to go.
  • Imagine going down into the library. Perhaps an elevator or stairs or manhole where you exit and there is the vista of your place. You go to the door of the library and step inside. There your guide meets you. If it’s a library, in the main room you’ll see rows of shelves with books that contain information. (I will use the library image for description purposes here but change the images according to what you’ve decided yours looks like.)
  • Your subconscious is a busy place. You may see workers shelving and sorting books. Off the main room are doors that lead to other areas of the building. There are maze-like hallways that have many rooms off them. Some hallways lead to stairs that go to other floors with more hallways and rooms.
  • To begin to familiarize yourself with your subconscious, you may want to start with a personal work station or a room where you can go and sit to visualize your goal.
  • There are many areas of the subconscious that you may want to explore over time. You can ask your guide to take you to the room of beliefs. There you can find the book of beliefs that holds all your beliefs. You can change a limiting belief into an expansive or healing belief.
  • If you are dealing with a health issue you can ask your guide to take you to the chamber of healing, where you can do some healing work. There, you may meet a healer or see a table with potions or medicines.
  • The forbidden zone is a place where you put all the things you do not ever want changed or accessed. As a child you hid painful experiences, traumas you never wanted to revisit, and decisions you made to help you survive. It’s painful, but you can be taken there by your guide to revisit those things. You can review old contracts stored in the forbidden zone and change or destroy them. You can plant a garden and seed it with new hopes, dreams and visions and let your subconscious work at manifesting them.
  • Once you have solidly connected to the subconscious, you can create a signal as a short cut to get there faster. Tap your wrist three times or say a secret word and you find yourself at the door to the library, warehouse or lab with your guide there to greet you. Remember that it’s your subconscious. You can discover all kinds of places in the subconscious that work for you.
  • When doing a self-guided visualization you can end it by counting from one to five and bring your attention back to your body and the room. Take a deep breath and reorient yourself. It is fun to be able to go in and out of the subconscious at will and work with it as an ally.

When you take the time to solidly connect with your subconscious mind via a visualization like this, you begin the amazing process of taking ownership of this important and powerful part of your mind.
