Creating space - the value of release
Most of us carry elements of the past around with us all the time and when they’re positive memories and influences such as those that keep us safe or inspire us to grow then that’s great. Unfortunately we can also carry the negative elements of our lives around with us too.
As children, we learn through what we’re taught and our own experiences. We absorb everything into our subconscious mind and particularly in our early formative years, this means we don’t differentiate between what is good to keep and what doesn’t serve us. We’re influenced by those in more authoritative positions in our lives such as parents, teachers and mentors. We absorb the effects of negative experiences as well as positive ones and even when we’re older and feel we should be more in control of how we feel, sometimes people and situations can still leave a lasting effect on us causing us to feel anxious, angry, helpless, overwhelmed and lost.
As individuals, we are not those things. We’re not born feeling this way and although some people may have conditions to deal with which cause those feelings, it very often comes from our life experiences.
Releasing negative thoughts, feelings and emotions can give you a new sense of lightness, freedom, space to breath and open you up to new opportunities. The problem with holding on to those feelings is that if you fill your space with them, then there’s no room for change and it’s more difficult to look at the new when you’re holding on to the old.
We’re all different. Some of us carry our feelings in our minds leaving us feeling unable to gain clarity on what we want while others carry it in their body, often in their torso where they feel a sense of stress, tension or churning whenever they think of whatever is bothering them. Releasing those unwanted feelings is a very powerful way of de-cluttering the mind; creating space for new positive thoughts and fresh ideas.
Just as we feel better when we de-clutter a drawer or cupboard, we also feel better for de-cluttering our mind of the stuff that we are ready to release because it’s no longer serving us. Hypnotherapy is a powerful yet gentle way of enabling you to release those unwanted thoughts, feelings and emotions in a safe way and create space for new more positive energy.
