When we have a painful experience in life, it can create a metaphoric grove in our
subconscious mind, where the memories of that painful experience are
etched. Having the desire to protect our self from further, similar
painful experiences, we begin to look for the things in life that could
potentially cause another one. As we look, we begin to see all kinds of
potential dangers that could create more pain. As we see these potential
dangers, the memory in our grove is reinforced, setting up a negative
loop that can paralyze us, prevent us from going after the things in
life that we want or need. This negative loop is very difficult to
break. As we believe, so we see. If we believe something bad is going to
happen, based on the fact that something bad has already happened, we
constantly look for it in order to protect our self from it, and we see
it everywhere. Each time this happens our groove gets dug a little
deeper. This is a very different experience from learning from our past
mistakes in order not to repeat them again.
Hypnosis is very effective in smoothing out the groove so that we are no
longer stuck in its negativity. While in the state of hypnosis, we have
access to our subconscious mind, and to the negative emotions keeping
us stuck in the painful memory. Once we connect to these emotions, we
can release them. As this happens, we are suddenly free from their
negativity, and they are no longer reinforced in our subconscious mind.
Then we are finally able to heal and move forward in our life, able to
see and experience our life from a new perspective.in.
