What is the Intentional Human Project? How does it tie into the Intentional Hypnosis program? It all begins with our humanity and the various strategies that we use to keep ourselves from it. Yes, from it! Most of us understand, what it is to embrace our humanity. The dictionary gives us the following traits of humanity, compassion, brotherly love, kindness, consideration, philanthropy, humaneness, understanding, tenderness, benevolence, charity, mercy, generosity and so many more.
You get the idea and yet these ideals seem to be in short supply, so much so, that we treat people that embody them as if they are exceptional. Know that they are not exceptional. We, in fact are the exception when we choose to push off from them and embrace hatred, fear, miserliness, bigotry, as our norm and settle for the opposite of what we desire in our hearts! This is not who we are, as crazy as it sounds we are simply defending ourselves from our humanity. We are walled off, shut down and ultimately ashamed of what we have allowed ourselves to become.
We have allowed unconscious or unintentional behavior patterns to dominate our lives and we are suffering greatly as a result. Don’t blame our politicians, they are simply mirrors and when enough of us change they will change as well. When we operate with Clear Intention everything changes though it is a process or project. Thus, the name Intentional Human Project.
So how does Intentional Hypnosis figure into this? It is but one of many tools that I have discovered and it is very effective in alleviating this suffering. Our lack of humanity is mostly directed towards ourselves in the form of a self-loathing that for some, becomes our unspoken truth. We do our best to keep it hidden and in doing so empower the very thing we despise. Hypnosis at its core helps us to create a new more supportive story that we act out of. We are given permission to begin to love and embrace all parts of ourselves through the rekindling of our humanity. This single act points our compass to true north giving us a new found sense of direction. We are now once again on our path.
It is the Path to an Intentional You and is as varied as each one of us that chooses to walk it. My own path has been both challenging and rewarding. I would change nothing as even the most painful and heartbreaking moments have served to shape who I am today. Truth is that it took me a long time to fall in love with that guy in the mirror. I do not always approve of his behaviors but I do accept him just as he is - a work in progress. It is my own unique journey that empowered my successful approach to behavior change and how I discovered that the blending of the following two elements is the key to lasting change. No long-term change occurs without them! Please view more on website home page.
