As children we are encouraged to spend our days imagining that anything is possible. As adults we channel that same creative energy into self-doubt. In doing so without us even realizing, we replay and reinforce negative stories about ourselves and who we believe we are. Think about that for a second.
Your mind is incredibly powerful. You are probably unaware of just how so. Unfortunately this means you might be dedicating your capacity for endless imagination to designing an inner world full of worry and fear based thinking. But your mind is not hard wired and your thinking can be changed. You probably don’t still play with the same toys you did as a child or have the same posters on your wall you did as a teenager. Experience has made you different and you have adapted. Thoughts linked to your safety and survival are more stubborn in updating but they can and will be changed if the message makes sense to your unconscious and it’s ready to leave something behind. Think about this your thinking has changed since yesterday and how it will change today. The magnitude of the change will depend on you and the actions you take and what you decide next. Taking action, is what we will work on together. A lot of therapy models are based on finding yourself motivated to create change consciously, which is great, but if your subconscious is working against you, then it will go out of its way to keep you safe by reducing your drive or increasing your anxiety, leading to self sabotage and paralyzing you with heavy emotion. Jessica works differently because she is guiding you both consciously and unconsciously towards what you really want.
