It's that time of year again! ...when we decide to 'take control' of our lives, and stop smoking, taking drugs, drinking alcohol or eating like a pig.
This is because the analytical part of the mind has done a little review of our progress thus far, and decided, quite correctly of course, that we COULD DO BETTER.
So it makes an executive, conscious decision to put things right. For it knows, exactly, what needs to change: what we should stop doing - like bingeing on cocaine or alcohol - and what we should now start doing - such as exercising, detoxing and getting back in the gym.
So why aren't we doing it? Why do New Year's Resolutions always seem to fail?
It's very simple. Our lives are organised into routines, and the Subconscious mind organises our behaviour according to those established patterns. Most of what we do is habit: automatic repetition of what we usually do. When you make a conscious decision to quit smoking weed, for example, or stop taking Ketamin, the Subconscious doesn't know about the new conscious decision. So it innocently continues to direct those behaviours, blissfully unaware of the conscious mind's new intentions.
The traditional method of throwing willpower at this situation - a big conscious effort to force the change on ourselves - is notoriously hard to do... but fortunately none of this struggle is necessary!
Through the hypnotherapy process we explain to the Subconscious mind all the proposed changes to behaviour that we would like to implement from now on, and the Subconscious just changes everything it was doing. No willpower required. more about this
So this year, let's INCLUDE the Almighty Subconscious Mind in our plans for the year ahead, and get both parts of the mind looking at it from the same point of view, with the same understanding of what we're doing and why. 100% of your mental power pulling in the same direction toward the same goals: no conflict, no willpower required. Just success.
