Stop Trying to Think Your Way Out by Kelley T. Woods is this weeks featured article in the Hypnosis Health Info Article Library. “Trying to make permanent behavioral change by “thinking” is much like attempting to create corporate change by going to the receptionist. You need to get to the CEO which, in this case, is your subconscious mind,” writes Kelley. At Seattle Hypnosis with Roger Moore you can learn hypnosis and direct your inner CEO.
Stop Trying to Think Your Way Out
You are an intelligent person. You have learned a lot in your life and you like to think that you generally pay attention to what’s good for you. Unless you are living under a rock, you know that the consumption of alcohol has little to no benefits and a whole truckload of detriments. Compound all of this wisdom and then add your own personal experiences (it is said that we are destined to be presented with life’s lessons until we learn them) to notice that, hey, you really are informed about drinking, aren’t you?
Then why is it so difficult to change? Why can’t you just use sheer willpower to sustain an alcohol-free life? The frustration that many people experience is indicative that we can’t always just think our way out of our problems. The reason for this is that your conscious thought processes, which house things like rational, logical thought, along with short term memory and willpower (which is also short term), is not where the real drivers of alcohol drinking are maintained.
The subtle but even more powerful thought processes of emotions and creative imagination are stored and managed in a different realm – that of the subconscious mind. In this magnificent place, your lifelong memories, imprints, impressions and beliefs are also kept and it is these which are influencing your daily attitudes and responses.
