There are some people that no matter how old they are still look for the approval of their parents. In everything they do from parenting to what jobs they decide on, what schools they attend, the partner they choose, and so on.
We are plagued by the voices of the past…those voices that have always reminded us of our failures or our shortcomings.
I know a few of these people and most don’t even know they are doing it. I was one of those people. For me specifically I don’t know that I was looking for the approval, but was definitely guided by the negativity that was drilled into my head while growing up mostly by my Nana.
It’s kind of funny I was one of those people that were 6 of one half dozen of the other. I was partly affected by the voices telling me I will never amount to anything (and so much more) and the other part rebel.
I haven’t fully concluded at what moments the rebel came out but now writing this I am curious so it sounds to me like I need a hypnosis session to get to the answers.
Let me ask you a few questions about how you are living your life right now.
How many times are you still burdened by the voices of the past?
Who in your life is dead and yet you are still living by their rules?
When will you decide something is good enough for that person?
Will it ever be good enough? If they are dead, how will you know?
Do you still make decisions based on whether that person would approve?
Isn’t it time now to stop the madness? If you are making life decisions based on the negative voices of your past, how much of your life are you living?
Close your eyes for just a minute if you would. Just imagine yourself now ejecting all the ‘stuff’ that is imprinted in your mind that you would like removed from a specific person.
Use your imagination. Eject it any way you want. Reach in and pull it out, have it spit out like it would from a printer. However you do it make it fun after all, it is fun getting rid of unwanted nonsense.
When you are done, and making sure you have every last letter…imagine giving it back to the deceased to be buried with them.
Place it in their coffin, and release it forever. Imagine giving it back to them. Just like we bury people in their favourite clothes and jewels, the same can be done with their favorite words!
Sound weird, strange or bizarre? So what. It works. It is a temporary visual for a permanent solution.
Everyone always asks how to let go of things. This is one way. Our subconscious mind does not know the difference between reality and pretend and that is why hypnosis is so effective.
Do this exercise and please comment and let me know about your experience.
Here’s to you living your own life…
