Oftentimes we watch our friends and family continuously do stupid things. We look on in aghast because we cannot fathom why they would continue to do something that does not serve them well.
This could be in the context of a friend being in an abusive relationship. They cry, swear to leave, but always end up right back into the arms of the perpetrator.
Or maybe it’s the friend who stays when their wife continuously has affairs, promises to never do it again, but still does.
It could also be the friend who vows never to drink again because their excessive drinking has ended up with them getting into fights, losing their belongings and has affected their productivity a work.
Or could it be you?
Sometimes, we can spend so long wondering why other people do the things they do, but we are blinded by our own behaviours.
Whilst you’re shaking your head at your aunt who continues to eat rum cake whilst having type 2 diabetes, you’re failing to notice the damage that you’re doing to yourself whilst you go through 10-15 cigarettes a day.
It’s astonishing that we can’t see the shit in our own eyes, but know what’s best to use to wipe someone else’s. Funny that!
I for one, go through the motions of wanting to lose weight year after year. Sometimes I’m successful, but most of the time I am not. Why is that? I can tell you the science behind losing weight, the methods and how to work out, but struggle to execute that same advice on myself on a consistent basis.
Dr Van Der Kolk says in his book, ‘The Body Keeps Score’, that trauma actually causes physiological changes in the brain. This is why people continue to repeat the same problems and struggle to learn from experience.
Whilst understanding trauma is what Love Laid Bare is all about, I’d like to give you alternative solutions to ponder over.
In this weeks episode I am joined by Mind Coach & author Manley Connikie and Master PSYCH-K Facilitator, Cavan Cato.
We discuss why our brains function out of habit even when we try to make positive changes and what tools we can use to overcome them.
What is PSYCH-K?
PSYCH-K is a unique and direct way to identify and change subconscious beliefs that perpetuate old habits of thinking and behaving that you would like to change.
It is a simple process that helps you communicate with your subconscious mind, so you can change beliefs that limit your self-esteem, relationships, job performance, and even your physical health! Popularly characterised as a spiritual process with psychological benefits, the word psych is an abbreviation for psychology. And, is also a variant spelling of the word psyche. The dictionary definition of psyche is mind, soul, or spirit. The overall goal of PSYCH-K is to help you free your mind from beliefs that limit your recognition of yourself as a divine being having a human experience.
What does Psych-K stand for?
Psychological Kinesiology. Psych-K derives from the word psyche which relates to the mind, spirit or soul. Kinesiology (muscle testing) is used as an effective way to communicate with the subconscious mind.
Manley and Cavan have been successful in helping people deal with a wide range of issues from suicide, to wealth building and changing corrupt beliefs about ones self.
