The Past Shapes Our Lives But It Doesn’t Have To Rule Us

Who you are now and how you act now is what matters. The past is the past. Now is your opportunity to be as you want to be and to live the life you want to live.

It is undeniable that we tend to live our lives within the constraints of beliefs, habits and expectations that were formed throughout our earlier experiences. Our minds work in such a way as to create short cuts in all manner of thinking and responding to situations.

Our minds also create stores of information about things that have caused angst in the past. They are always on automatic high alert for anything that may be associated with being a potential threat.

These pre-fixed ideas do create constraints upon our present and future experiences, so long as you allow them to do so. Even though these things are automatic you can in fact act to change them. You don’t have to be stuck with them forever.

The effect of past experience is in this way similar to the effect of hormonal preconditioning. Although a particular course of action is made more likely, with focus and intent it can be displaced.

The biggest barrier to overcoming this type of pre-conditioning would in fact appear to lie in an assumption that it is not possible to take control and change direction. This assumption is entirely incorrect.

Once you appreciate that you can change your habits, beliefs and behaviors, no matter what your past experience or hormonal influence might be, you will find that many things become possible. New choices and opportunities open up to you at the very moment that you make this realization.

Things that you previously thought would be difficult, or nigh on impossible, now become relatively easy for you to achieve. The mind is a very powerful instrument so long as you know how to use it.

When you decide to change pre-fixed ideas, habits, beliefs or expectations you will find that hypnosis is extremely helpful. Hypnosis empowers you to facilitate these types of changes more easily as it allows you to access and direct your subconscious mind.
