Our StoryBooks have images...lots of images! In the past, a portion of those images were negative, often over-riding their positive counterparts. This is especially true in the parts of the StoryBooks that have to do with addictions or disorderly eating. Now we are creating new StoryBooks...not just "editing' the old ones. You are writing your StoryBook through the power provided by your higher Creative Self who has given you the opportunity of a new fresh start. While old programs may "stop by" & ask, or perhaps even demand to be in the new Book, the answer is a simple "no." No need to be angry, depressed, anxiety-ridden or feaful; no need to argue or to defend yourSelf any longer. You have learned that these old, unwanted & unsavory Stories are just that...Stories. They have been designed by your emotional childSelves, supported by your "old & weary" self-esteem & image. Take a moment to image these lower parts of yourSelf, standing next to your Powerful Highest Creative & Healing Self...notice how insignificant they appear; almost silly. There is no need to feel any negativity towards them. They are simply "lowerSelves" who have never been put in front of your Higher CreativeSelf mirror, but as you do now, they shrink even further & as they shrink, there diminishing Power is transmuted or changed into High Level Positive Energy.
Here we are working creatively with Interactive Self-Hypnotic Images or Imaginology. Each of us has an inner Artistic or Creative Self. You have this even if you never, ever considered yourSelf creative or having any artistic talent. Everyone has this & now that you know, you can begin to utilize it in very powerful ways. There are no limits to the Artist's Brush...
We'll work more with our Artistic Tools, 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 This book is not published as yet, but you have the opportunity to read it in it's unpublished state.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.
THE INNER ARTIST
Everything we do is from the position of our Highest CreativeSelf. If you have been following along, you know that Self is contained in the fourth Foundational Goal-den Brick. We enter the brick through deep relaxation & a sincere desire to "connect." If you are new to this work, go back a few chapters & locate the directions. Once we are connected, we'll travel over to the StoryBook we are writing in the first Goal-den Brick that is related to food. You already know how to enter the Book & where the Table of Contents are located. In the very front of the Book you will find your easel & drawing tools; paints, crayons, brushes, pencils, erasers & other artist's tools. There are also reference materials such as magazines, books & a memory pad that contains healthy images that you already have stored in your very own subconscious mind. Some of these healthy images also have mentors connected to them & you are free to invite these individuals to join you in your Artistic endeavors. Perhaps you know people or have seen people who are already practicing high level health...in so doing, they are the "keepers" of very powerful images that they will share with you. You do not have to know these people, but only to know "of them." That's all that is necessary. When you have settled into this image & are ready to continue, just come to where I'm waiting for you....over here.
These are some of the things we're going to do:
Create Images with the Artistic Tools
Clearly Define the Images
Emotionalize the Images
Intensify the Images
Expose the Images to the Procedure of Enlightening
I'll meet you in the next Blog/Entry & we'll do these together.
