Secondary Benefits - continuation

But, none of that makes sense, does it?  Unfortunately, your subconscious mind doesn't deal in sense.  It only wants to stick to the script that it believes is best for you.  It's only in your conscious mind that reason, logic and analytical ability reside.  That's where you decide to make the positive change.  Your subconscious mind is where the improvement is sabotaged.  

So, what can you do?  Hypnotherapy and Emotional Freedom Technique are both excellent ways of dealing with your subconscious, resistant mind so that you can experience the changes you consciously know you want to experience.

Secondary Benefits

Why is it sometimes so difficult for us to make changes in our lives, even positive ones that we feel certain we want to make?  Things like losing weight, quitting bad habits, or leaving a job or relationship that simply isn't working would appear to be improvements that we certainly desire, but, often, even when we decide to make the shift, somehow something sabotages us.
Often there is what's known as a secondary benefit at play, a belief deeply buried in our subconscious mind that the thing we know consciously isn't good for us actually serves some beneficial purpose.

Writing a Better Life

As part of my Stress Relief Techniques class, I teach the importance of gratitude.  It's enormously healing, simply because we're naturally such anxious creatures.  We're all experts at being stressed and anxious because our earliest ancestors, who were much more vulnerable than we, had to be on the lookout incessantly for things that could be detrimental to their continued well-being.  That tendency has been passed down to us through the generations, and we're now quite good at it.

You Are A Healer

We've all heard how important it is for our continued good health to eat properly, exercise, drink plenty of water, and get the right amount of sleep. 
 
But it's equally important to become aware of how we speak to ourselves, both silently and aloud.
 
I used to know a woman who would announce at the first hint of cooler weather that flu season was coming and that she got sick every year.  Interestingly enough, she usually did.  There was someone else I knew who, as he aged and found he was having more difficulty recalling words and names, would make a comment about how his memory was shot.

Hoʻoponopono

Perhaps there's an area of your life that you'd like to improve.  An illness, injury, bad situation, or anything at all, really.  You've tried many different methods to make it better – physical, emotional and mental efforts – but nothing, so far, has worked.  It's time for you to consider the Hoʻoponopono.
 
According to Dr. Meherunisa Sutarwala, Hoʻoponopono is the process of rectifying a situation.  Its roots are in the Polynesian cultures, whose people believed one's errors were the cause of illness.

Stress Eating

Have you ever noticed that when you’re feeling the most stressed, often you want to eat more?  Worse, you crave things that you know aren’t healthy for you, like candy bars, cookies, soda or coffee.  You know that, if you indulge, not only won’t you feel better, but it will likely make you feel worse.  Still, though, you have a strong desire to do it.
 
The reason this happens is, stress is a result of your subconscious mind thinking that whatever has triggered the stress is something much worse.

Happiness is Healthy for You!

We’ve all heard the old adage, “Laughter is the best medicine.”  But have you ever stopped to consider why that might be?

Physically you’re healthier when you’re happier because your body is releasing neurotransmitters and hormones like endorphins, serotonin, dopamine and oxytocin. 
 
Endorphins relieve physical pain.  Serotonin stimulates feelings of happiness and makes you more social.  Dopamine causes you to feel better about yourself, especially when you’re working toward achieving a goal.

We Are Encouraged to be Stressed

In a recentblog post, I addressed the fact that, as insane as it sounds, stress is actually attractive to us on a subconscious level.  Now that you’re aware of that fact, it’s also important to become aware, on a conscious level, of the fact that we are encouraged to be stressed.
 
We've all heard the expression, "No pain, no gain."   Have you ever stopped and thought about what that means?  In order to acquire anything you want, you will have to hurt for it.

What is hypnotherapy?

Many people think that hypnosis is like what you see in movies and TV shows and on stage.  It appears as if someone can magically take control of your mind in order to make you do things against your will. 
 
In reality, hypnosis is a natural, normal state of mind, one that you've experienced whether you're aware of it or not.  Being in hypnosis means that you're in your alpha brainwave state.  Wide awake, you're in your beta brainwave state.  Sound asleep, you're in the delta state.

Surprising News About Stress

We have all experienced stress.  We know we don't like the way it feels.  We know we wish whatever triggered it would go away or hadn't happened in the first place.  Stress is just plain yucky, right?
 
Well, here's something that might surprise you:  you are actually attracted to stress.  It sounds insane, doesn't it?  But it's true. 
 
When humans first showed up on the planet, we had nothing: no immunity, no weapons, no natural armor.
