A week ago at midnight our state rolled back our opening and if you felt your heart sink, then I am with you. My thoughts are also with those directly impacted economically by having to close, drastically cut back or who are once again laid off. Indoor dining, bars and gyms, retail and so many more. I feel fortunate to be in a category that remains open.
The truth is in any normal year when the nights grow long, it is challenging emotionally. We find ourselves going to and coming home from work, in the dark. It's also cold, wet and dreary, now add Covid-19 to the mix and we have a real mess. Who wouldn't feel down, we were hoping this would end and it's dragging on, we're closing down as darkness closes in. I feel your pain as no one needs to feel this way, you are trying your best but not sure if you have anything left to give. The truth is you can get back on track in fact you will be stronger for having faced this ordeal you just need help. Do these three simple things each day to shift from feeling down to moving forward.

Opening doorways of possibility with a Conscious Intention begins your change process. The problem is that this Conscious Intention though strong is most often not enough to complete the process. You have done this yourself, started on the road to making your desired change only to fall back into your old familiar patterns. Almost all coaches today talk about these patterns or programs and yet few can explain them the way you are about to hear it.
These programs are difficult to change long term because the part of us that is invested in the life as we are currently living is resistant to change. That is the the part that is still governed by these unconscious patterns. This part thinks that it is doing its job of serving us, through keeping our old beliefs intact. These beliefs form a story that repeats itself and makes the change process difficult. The story itself is mostly unconscious and defines what we will or will not allow in our lives. This creates a frustrating yoyo effect of opening and closing the doorways of Intention. It is unconscious intention that blocks us from stepping through the door and into the life we would choose to live. Learn how to move past this block. Read more:

Have you noticed the term authenticity being used a lot lately? I sense that people want to be authentic, yet wonder how many actually understand what it takes to do so. The problem as I see it is directional, outward or inward. Looking outward to define yourself, often making choices to please others by being a team player or even to avoid blame or shame. You may find that words and actions feel a little out of sync or perhaps not quite your own.

Each of you has a personal story that guides your lives. Unfortunately for many it's not a really productive one. Let's imagine for a moment that you have a negative psychic twin that goes with you everywhere and is constantly talking to you.
Every thought you have your twin likes to comment on. You see a cute gal or guy at the grocery store and you want to say hello. Then the twin chimes in with a warning that says remember what happened last time you tried that? Yes, you do remember and you keep quiet, while the opportunity slips away.
What about that raise at work? You head towards the bosses door with just the right words to say and before you enter you veer away your twin comforting you. It's probably not a good time let's pick a better moment. You have an urge to speak up at a meeting and you hold back. Whew! That was a close call, you almost made a fool of yourself.
Enter the Forest Where it is Darkest
The Grail King said this, to the knights of the Holy Grail, "Enter the forest where it is darkest and there is no path." According to Joseph Campbell in The Heroes Journey. This is the only way to insure that it is your journey and not someone else's. Those of you that have read Campbell understand he speaks in metaphor and allegory.
As a Hypnotherapist I also utilize the power of this language in my work. The conscious mind only knows how to follow paths and in doing so keeps us trapped in repetitive patterns. Breaking these patterns through speaking to the subconscious mind, stirs curiosity and awakens us to new possibilities.
