Spokane Hypnosis Services- Intentional Hypnosis
I have been doing a lot of thinking about the crisis we are facing in America today and how we might address it. I have also been thinking about how my own internal narrative or story feeds into this. My internal story is complex though thankfully a lot less complex than it was even a few years ago. What do I mean by that? Have you ever felt like there is a story going on in your head between various characters? Most everyone has this experience though often times the story is so unconscious that we find ourselves acting it out as we are characters in a play.
The way I see it, these particular characters form into identities that very rigorously defend themselves. Kind of like Avatars who are all fighting to preserve their Kingdoms or Queendoms as the case may be. Credit goes to Psychologist Jordan Peterson for presenting the Avatar concept in this context. These Avatars can have a very serious affect on our lives and the decisions that we make each day and they are seeking to preserve themselves at our expense. Perhaps even at the expense of our country.
If you want know what side I am on it's your side and the real enemy isn't who you think. The real enemy is not outside ourselves though it does align itself with outside information and situations in order to justify its internal narrative. We are all being manipulated if we are motivated by an ideology instead of our truth. You and me and every other being on earth falls for this trap until we don't. So, how do we extricate ourselves from this trap? It is perhaps the most difficult task that you will ever receive and the freedom experienced once freed from it, will more than make up for the effort made to free yourself.
The first step is to understand that an ideology is formed by what we assume to be a series of truths about the world. These truths are often political or economic in nature and examples could be socialism, communism and capitalism. Pick any one of these and make a statement that aligns with your truth. Is _____________ bad and is this true. Are there any instances were it may not be true? These are hard questions and many of us are deeply entrenched in our beliefs. After looking at something as difficult as this then apply it to your personal lives and ask the questions regarding education, exercise, food, alcohol and drugs. Then begin to ask yourself deeper questions like am I satisfied with my job, career, relationship(s). By asking these questions we can begin to discover our truth about ourselves and then we at least are presented with a choice to begin to change the ingrained patterns and beliefs that hold us back. With this knowledge you are empowered to step onto the path of personal transformation. When you choose to engage with life on this level I am happy to guide you on this journey.
