Been on the phone a lot over the past two weeks, doing coaching calls with members of my Neg Busters program.
During these calls, I learn a ton about how people create realities they don’t want. I see how people hypnotize themselves into believing things that are absolutely not true.
For example, some people will say things like, “I can’t feel energy” or “I can’t visualize” or “I can’t focus” or “I can’t stop procrastinating.”
None of these statements are true in reality – but because the client believes them to be true, he or she acts as if they are true.
For example, M. said she is so afraid of making a mistake that she “always” double-checks “everything” she does. This trait caused her much grief. She wanted to drop it.
Upon “de-hypnosis,” I helped her realize she doesn’t “always” re-check “everything.” In fact, once completely de-tranced, she said she’s had experiences of going for days at a time without constantly double-checking everything.
I asked if she made any mistakes on those days of “flow.” She said “no.”
Okay, so why you carrying this stupid belief around?
Good news is she isn’t NOW. The belief has been proven false via de-hypnosis and eliminated with Theatre of the Mind. Now she can move from task to task in a state of flow.
Another client, JJ, said he can’t feel energy – ever?
“So you’re a neck-up person?” I ask.
“It’s a person who thinks he’s so logical that he can’t feel energy.”
“Oh, I’m definitely that person. Yes.”
I asked if he’s ever had a cup of coffee.
“Of course,” he said.
“Did your energy increase?”
“But I thought you said you can’t feel energy.”
I then went on asking the following:
Ever feel sick?
Ever feel tired and ready for bed?
Ever feel cold?
Ever have a dentist drill on a tooth without novocaine?
Ever feel humidity?
Ever feel someone’s anger?
I got a “yes” to each of these. Then he says, “But I can’t feel things like you do.”
“Oh, I see,” I said. “You’re breaking cardinal rule number four in Zero Resistance Living.”
“What’s cardinal rule number four?” he asks.
“Keep up with yourself, not the Joneses.”
“Oh, I guess I’m guilty of that one.”
“It’s a big club,” I said. “Don’t beat yourself up too long about it. Key is to stop the unfavorable comparisons to others. Compare and compete only with yourself. If you’re getting better than you were before, that’s what matters most.”
Following JJ’s coaching session, his life changed. He stopped the “I can’t feel anything” self-talk. He started to use his whole body as a brain, not just the one above his neck.
Funny, when some people hear me refer to a person as a “neck up” – they think I’m paying a compliment. They think I’m impressed with the intellect of the person.
To me, being intelligent means you use your mind-body to think. Your brain is only a small part of what you have at your disposal. Yes, your brain plays a huge role – but it’s far from being all there is on the journey of self-realization.
So pinch yourself on the check today. Yes, you can feel.
Be Still – and Flow,
