What do you think?
Where do your thoughts come from? If you were to say I am sick of myself right now! Who is the "I am" and who is the "myself"? Does that not imply that there is reference to two people in the question?
Stop now and ask yourself, I wonder what my next thought is going to be? - What happens? How long does it take for a thought to arrive and what happens in the space in between?
The quality of your life is only as good as the quality of your thoughts, this is a concept that has been quoted by many teachers and philosophers over many centuries and it still shared by spiritual leaders and life coaches today.
"The happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thoughts" - Marcus Aurelius. Philosopher 121 AD
Man's search for meaning
Victor Frankl was a holocaust survivor. He was also a neurologist and a psychiatrist. Victor endured years of unspeakable horror in the Nazi concentration camps where his wife and his father both died.
He believed that his thoughts saved his life and that a mans motivation is a search for meaning. Victors psychotherapeutic method involved identifying a purpose in life to feel positive about and then immersing himself in imagining that as an outcome.
“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms — to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.”
Positive thoughts lead to positive behaviours and in turn a more positive life. Negative self talk to yourself and of others is on the contrary extremely damaging.
Our physical bodies are also connected to our thoughts. We can create and manifest physical reactions in our body just by thinking of something.
What happens when you think about yawning. or imagine yourself watching someone yawning - do you yawn? What happens to your body when you think a sexual or erotic thought? If you really think now about slicing a lemon in half and biting into it feeling the sour juice across your tongue does it make you salivate?
Pay attention to your thoughts, notice them, write them down, meditate to clear them or see what comes up, but most importantly pay attention to them.
Hypnotherapy is effective because it works with the subconscious, where wisdom, memories and intelligence are held, using the power of suggestion it is possible to re frame the way that you see people, events and memories.
