The majority of individuals who access services at Hypnosis for Life have, at one time or another made good use of: 1) traditional clinical psychology services  2) medication  3) community counselling, 12 step programs and/or treatment centers.
These options provide initial needed relief, however, relapse is common. Challenges tend to re-occur until the subconscious mind has fully accepted and absorbed new paths of least resistance.

subconscious mind review

Please review email 65.


In a variety of emails, I have continued to suggest that the subconscious mind is a learning machine and not our higher self. It is important to remember that its job is to maintain ways of being (thoughts, feelings, and behaviors) that have been programmed and automated over time. We refer to these as our cow paths because they are paths of least resistance (easy to maintain, even when painful).

In other emails, I have continued to suggest that there is a dynamic interplay between our innate preferences or natural inclinations and social programming. We have begun to explore just one dichotomy of personality preferences with the introduction of introversion and extroversion. It is by understanding and working with this interplay that we become the CEO of our lives.

To simplify:

  • The Cow Path Model of Change™ addresses the influence of social programming as an important external influence.
  • The MBTI® Step 2 addresses innate personality preferences as an important internal influence.

Examples:

Nancy shows a strong clarity preference for extroversion in the MBTI step 2. I suggested that she was not born with anxiety or depression and that her responses to events have been learned or programmed.


-her innate extroversion needs are not being met
-her learned response has been to become anxious and depressed which allows her to disassociate and numb herself (because it works).
-her subconscious mind has accepted this way of being for the time being and will continue to pave this path of least resistance unless something changes.
-in the meantime, her innate preference and a new conditioned response will continue to drain energy and rob her of potential. The subconscious mind does not care.

Jim shows a strong clarity preference for introversion in the MBTI step 2. I suggested that Jim was not born with the tendency to consume alcohol to relieve stress.


-his introversion needs are not being met
-his learned response has been to consume alcohol to relieve his discomfort (because it works).
-his subconscious mind has accepted this way of being and will continue to pave this path of least resistance unless something changes.
-in the meantime, his innate preference and a new conditioned response will continue to drain energy and rob him of potential. The subconscious mind does not care.

Please remember to review past emails as we move forward.
