Whether it is my Breathwork or PSYCH-K clients, the message is the same – explore within. It is probably the most basic instinct in all of us to look out, to see what’s not working for us in the outside world. But, if you want to get to the bottom of things, the answer is always within.
When we are talking about PSYCH-K, often there is this wrong notion that changing the beliefs is all we need to do. To a certain extent – this is true. But, if you’re looking for a deep and meaningful change, then there is another crucial and important part – your action plan.
Let’s talk about self-exploring. What does it actually mean and why is it so good for us? It is a process that a lot of people are refraining from going through, for various reasons. Most likely the main reason is that it is extremely hard. Not only that, it’s not something one can do overnight, it takes time. Doesn’t sound too tempting, right? Why would someone embark on this kind of process?
Whenever there is a talk or an explanation about PSYCH-K in specific, and human habits in general, the term ‘limiting beliefs’ seems to be a mystery. It seems like most people think they have a good idea about what it is, but they are not quite sure. So, let’s do it – let’s explain what limiting beliefs are.
Have you ever tried not to think about something painful? Keeping yourself busy so it won’t be in your mind? Surrounding yourself with people so that it’s noisy enough so you can’t hear it?
Have you ever been through times in your life in which you felt nothing is going right? In fact, not only nothing can go right, but also – everything is wrong. It seems like no matter what you do, it goes the wrong way, you are stuck and there is no way to turn to. It is like there is a big black block right in front, closing down on you.
When we come to deal with and talk about emotional baggage, it could almost seem like just the term itself carries with it a heavy weight. Before we start talking about it, we need to define it. So, what is it exactly – emotional baggage? According to Collins Dictionary – ‘the feelings you have about your past and the things that have happened to you, which often have a negative effect on your behaviour and attitudes.’
For a lot of us, making a change is an enormous step, a kind that needs a lot of preparations, dealing with countless fears and being willing to be open up to new options. But there comes a time when you just know you have had enough, you are ready to embark on a transformation to better yourself and your life.
How can we know that we are there, that we are ready for a positive change? Here are 5 signs that will tell you:
I’ve come across an interesting story on the Facebook page of Mindful Schools. I’d like to bring here the story as it was told on Facebook:
We live in an interesting time, sort of a paradox. On the one hand, there is a significant “awakening” – mindfulness is being practised by more and more people, the word ‘therapy’ has released itself from all shame and it is highly accepted and recommended. On the other hand, technology allows us the alleged privilege of keeping ourselves occupied all day long, keep ourselves off everything we feel uncomfortable with. It is so easy nowadays to keep ourselves numb.
