“The soul becomes dyed with the colour of its thoughts.” Marcus Aurelius
Marcus Aurelius was a clever man. Besides being a Roman emperor, he was a philosopher. I like learning from smart people.
The wrong type of thoughts can severely harm us, even kill us. Slow deterioration in health is one example of a severe impact (Example: Nocebo) and another, suicide.
What can we do about changing the ‘colour of our thoughts’, and thus improve our lives?
We know that positive thinking only goes so far. In fact, positive thinking used wrongly can also be harmful, but that is another story.
Many of us know how hard it is to try to change our thinking from the top down. Our conscious minds, logic and decisions move us toward change, however we are often frustrated and our attempts are of limited use. This is because we need to change our thinking from the bottom up – we need to start with the subconscious mind. To do that we need to know how the subconscious mind works – the laws which it operates by – and how to effect subconscious mind change.
Metaphorically speaking, the subconscious mind is a series of building foundations. Any good builder will tell you that good foundations are essential for a good building; and that if foundations are undermined, damaged or poorly constructed, the rest of the building will be adversely affected. The leverage power of foundations is huge. Everything rests on them.
So it is with our minds. By working on and with the subconscious mind we can achieve great leverage. As an example, a client (mental health professional) tell me that they overcame a phobia which had been in place for decades due to what I call a ‘side-benefit’ to using my techniques (despite working in mental health, having ‘learned colleagues’ and a hypnotherapist best friend) . A ‘side-benefit’ is when an issue not specifically targeted by use of my techniques resolves as a result of a client focusing on other issues. The reason this happens is partly because of the leverage activated by working on foundational stuff. Fixing one area can cause others to resolve also.
