Now that we are head-long in to 2017, let’s stop and assess how we are all doing with our resolutions. Are you going strong? If you have found yourself losing your resolve or giving up all together there are ways you can renew your desire to create changes. Did you know that by shifting your point of view just a bit, you can get back on track?
First of all, review your resolutions and then get them out of your space. Throw them away, delete them from your device, scatter them to the winds.
Next, let’s revise those things you want to achieve and set intentions instead. Although the word “resolution” may not be a negative one, the connotation may carry a negative feeling to some. Setting an intention implies that it is a work in progress, there is no urgency or pressure to complete an item on a list. For most, the resolutions they set are viewed as no more than an item on a to-do list, it’s no wonder most of them are abandoned soon into the year.
If you think about it, this type of approach isn’t enough because of the type of resolutions most people set for themselves. Most of the time, these are lifestyle changes and not undertaken lightly. It’s a process that needs to be worked with, evaluated and re-worked as milestones are achieved. Quitting smoking, for example, is much more than just not lighting up. Alternative routines should be thought of, ways to decrease cravings and go to resources or people to call when you need a little “talking down”.
Hypnosis can be a helpful way to keep your intentions firm. By accessing the sub-conscious part of the mind, the place where routines and habits are saved, it is easy to suggest modifications to these routines or simply release them. So, another example; if you wanted to renew your relationship with an estranged family member, it may be easier to do that if you have removed the emotional response from the original experience that caused the strain in the first place. By letting go of that, you hold space for a new, positive relationship to form.
Reiki can also remove physical and emotional blocks that can hinder the letting go process. Every experience that you have is held not only in your memory but in the cells, which is one of the reasons that stress can cause physical illness. By reframing your intentions ie: I want to lose weight into I have intention to become healthy and fit, you are allowing your brain to become more open to the idea of creating abundant health.
Making physical space in your body also allows room for positive changes to occur. Physically manipulating the body as in chiropractic care re-aligns and opens space, literally, and also increases your ability to make room for positive change.
