While we are still working in the First Fundamental Goal-den Brick & in the first new StoryBook, the special images & exercises I'm presenting here can be utilized in the StoryBooks that will follow this one. Just the subject matter will change. I'm sure by now you understand that the goal-den bricks & storybooks are "frames" or "containments" for additional suggestions. The subconscious mind likes things orderly & so it is helpful to engage in orderly choices, leaving all disorder behind. You already know that old storybooks are no longer available & all suggestions are designed towards high level health & performance.
Containments allow us to do many things & to build on top of basic suggestions, such as losing weight in a healthy fashion, curtailing addiction, or whatever else we've decided to do. When we only work with our conscious mind, we not only give up a lot of power, thereby making it more difficult to achieve our goals, but we also give up opportunities to build positive, powerful layers that not only support the goal at hand, but can be transferred or absorbed by other goals in other goal-den bricks.
I've introduced you to the use of living affirmations & we've practiced entering them, thereby participating inside the goal facets, making them stronger with deeper roots. Here we'll be working with new images for adding even more layers & power to the eating or food related goals. We will be attracting Power through a variety of venues that are listed in the image above. All of these mindStates deliver power that is available "in the moment", as well as making them available in the future, just like money in a bank account. The practice of Interactive Self-Hypnosis, imagery & imaginology is very easy to do, but is best accomplished from the position of the fourth goal-den brick, where the CreativeSelf resides. I suggest that you read through the exercise, then plan on spending some time in deep relaxation, allowing the suggestions to find their way "home" in your own subconscious mindPlace.
But before we get started, I'd like to welcome new readers..
A NOTE TO NEW READERS:
This experiential blog/workshop is based on my new book, "How Many Cookies Will It Take to Make Me Happy?" This book is not published as yet, but you have the opportunity to read it in it's unpublished state. If you are new to my writing, you might want to read the earlier mini-chapters. They are available on FaceBook, The PublishersMarketPlace & at the following link. Remember to scan down to find the earliest chapters & work your way up. http://beyonddisorderlyeating.blogspot.com/
A bit of background.... we are working with creative Interactive Self-Hypnosis imagery, planting suggestions directly into the creative subconscious mind as you read along. What appears like a story is a series of self-hypnotic sessions, designed to bring about desired lifestyle changes. The inner mind is creative & rather child-like, loving to play with images, especially when they are emotionalized. Just like the saying, "a picture is worth a thousand words", well-planted mind images, can be worth hours of therapy. We can actually change or motivate in 1/200th of a second. So come along & look forward to some lifestyle-changing events.
ATTRACTING POSITIVE POWER
In the past, you may have kept your negative behaviors alive with some of the very same mindSets that we are now going to utilize for "positive use only." What's interesting is the amount of POWER that is truly available in people with addictive behaviors. I know this personally, as well as from working with patients in my private practice. This very good news. Addictive people have lots available to transmute from negative to positive. All that is needed is to have "hot desire" & to be in the presence of one's Higher CreativeSelf. You already know how to place yourSelf in that mindState, so take a moment & I'll meet you there.
All mindSets are filled with energy. We get to point or direct this Power towards our chosen goals. When one is lost in addiction or life disorder of some type, these very same mindSets are pointed towards those negative choices, thereby energizing them. Anyone who has fought addiction is familiar with these.
Creating & Designing - we all have very creative minds that work full-time designing chosen outcomes. In the "new StoryBook" all creation & design is aimed at positive outcome images.
Opening & Learning - there is much to learn & in order to learn we must be open & clear. Now we change direction with these powerful mindSets, aiming them towards opening new routes to health.
Loving & Forgiving - in a negative life, these two mindSets are often utilized against the Self. Now, we accept them, aiming towards all positive images & affirmations.
Focusing & Flowing - in a negative life, the mind focus was on the addiction & flowing through it's layers. Now, the direction changes, focusing & aiming at new, healthy images & affirmations, flowing or traveling between them.
Freeing & Letting Go - addiction brings tightness to both the mind & body, keeping it tightly locked in a jail-like environment. Now that we are opened, loving & forgiving, it's easy to let go & aim towards the things that were only dreams in our past.
Energizing & Magnetizing - as we eat to meet our body needs, physical energy naturally enhances. This is very different from being energized by addictive substances, including food. The energy-ride is now balanced. We form a natural magnet, drawing towards us all that is positive & enhancing. No need to just wish or window-shop. Everything is available.
Practicing Formlessness - in this mindState we leave our bodyMind, existing as our Highest CreativeSelf, completely trusting, as we flow through our positive life experiences as an observer, moving from "the moment" to the future, perhaps back to clearing the past & then back to "the moment" once again...everything in perfect unison.
The more these positive mindStates are practiced, both consciously & subconsciously, the more they will attract, for each practice enhances their Power.
