We humans are highly suggestible.
Think about it.
We learn through imitation - we imitate sound as we acquire language.
We imitate movement and behavior. Our brain has the capacity to be impressed and affected by the actions, behaviors and words of others - and to have these imprints affect our behavior.
Despite assertions of independence we are actually quite an interdependent species!
Awareness of how easily we are impacted by the words of others gives us a choice about how we react.
DANCE WITH IT! EXPERIENTIAL APPS
An opportunity to experiment with some fun ideas…
SITUATIONAL HYPNOSIS AND THE IMPORTANT ROLE OF AWARENESS AND PUSH BACK…
We are most highly suggestible when we are vulnerable:
* Late at night
* Early in the morning
* Times of illness or injury
* Moments of high emotional impact
People we give power and status to can easily affect us:
* close friends
Think about some of the identifiers you use about yourself…
* What are they? Smart? Lazy? Stupid? Clumsy? Graceful?
* Where did you pick up these ideas about yourself?
Think about your beliefs about your ability to accomplish things
Have the people in your life shored up your strength with their words or diminished you - even if they were well intentioned?
Imagine you have some physical shielding that has the ability to censor out words and comments that are not good for you.
* What does your shield look like?
* In what situations do you need to activate it?
Imagine that it has a shredder capacity that can go one month into the past and clean up and destroy any negative 'get in your way' comments.
How does it feel to empower yourself in this way?
