Breaking Through Emotional Blocks
It isn’t difficult to see how fear can hamper the awareness and elimination of emotional blocks to your success. It can be scary to think of letting down your walls to look at a more vulnerable part of yourself, especially if you’re a guy. Fear cripples your chances to challenge and overcome those emotional obstacles and even though fear leads to self confidence issues, untapped potential, negative relationship patterns, stagnation, and limited living you still let it prevail which is baffling to you. What you don’t know is that these blocks are unconscious safety mechanisms laid down in our brains and bodies long ago as a body feeling state designed to protect “the self” and to ensure our survival at a time when you were most vulnerable which is why they are so difficult to change. But those mechanisms are like having an odor eliminator plugged into the wall for years that you have forgotten is there. It is no longer effective. In spite of all of that, because these behaviors have life saving value, we find them to be so automatic, that we feel hopeless to change them. Brain research shows that these patterns can be changed once we are aware they are there and we can take steps to override them. When taught the right skills you can use authenticity and vulnerability as you most powerful tool to both increase your confidence and improve the relationships in all areas of your life.
Extinguishing Unhealthy Patterns & Habits
“Why do I keep doing what I do and why can’t I stop?” “What would a normal person do?”. These are the issues that were spoken of and even date back to biblical times! Or how about, “I don’t even know who I am anymore”. If only I had a penny for every time I heard one of those comments! So much of what we do is so unconscious that we feel victimized by our own ways and while we are desperate to change, we simply don’t know how. We may excel in other areas of our lives, but the awareness of these destructive patterns seem to overshadow even our highest accomplishments and our sincerest relationships until they become an identity in and of themselves leaving you feeling hopeless. Once you learn to uncover the hidden forces behind these behaviors, you can use them to break those destructive habits and instigate lasting change.
Reprogram Your Brain
We have been trained thus far to believe that we are who we are and there isn’t much we can do about that. But the latest scientific research shows that we have what’s called neuroplasticity which is the ability of the brain to form and reorganize synaptic connections in response to learning, experience and even injury. What this boils down to is our absolute capacity to change and live more of the life we want. Once outside the womb the brain is experience dependent and while we are quick to believe that our brains have the capacity to suppress or inspire certain genes relative to physical ailments, we toss out the idea that the same can be true of emotional reprogramming. This is a gross misconception and we need to think again. Thanks to scientific research, we now know it is possible to live happier and more peaceful lives with the proper techniques to utilize your brains natural capacities.
