When my son was little, about 3 or 4 years old, he used to refer to us people as human â€œbeansâ€. In a way I think that was a good term for us as humans because just like the other kind of beans we need the proper watering and fertilizing to grow to our full potential.
Each one of us is born with certain talents and abilities but if our belief in our selves (our fertilizer) is missing, we fail to grow, blossom and produce fruit. In other words, we fail to ignite our valuable potential.
Each of us has a dream about what we wish we could do or be. It is my feeling that the mere presence of that personal dream or wish is an indication of our own untapped potential. As a certified clinical hypnotherapist one way that I am able to help someone to access their abilities is through hypnosis to strengthen their belief in themselves, their self-esteem.
It probably sounds overly simplistic but the truth is if you believe in your own possibilities, you will begin taking one little action step at a time to accomplish your goal. The action may be as simple as reading about your particular subject of interest or taking a weekly class to gain knowledge. Whatever you do will bring you closer to seeing the next step and the step after that until you begin to feel the joy that comes from accomplishment.
There will always be handfuls of reasons why you canâ€™t or shouldnâ€™t. Your family or friends wonâ€™t approve. Perhaps the world isnâ€™t ready for you or your idea!
Fortunately there are at least an equal number of reasons why you should develop your personal heartâ€™s ambition. Before we arrive here on earth all of us are â€œseededâ€ with so many capabilities, so many positive directions. It is up to each one of us to accept the challenge and use what we have been given.
When we are truly using what we have, so many beautiful opportunities are presented to us. We begin to grow and expand in ways that may never have even occurred to us to try if we had not taken a â€œchanceâ€ and explored all of our options and possibilities.
On a personal note, some years ago just on a â€œwhimâ€ I bought a set of chakra tuning forks. That purchase led to a wonderfully effective practice of sound, color and gemstone healings for my clients. Was it a whim or was it my high self or guides whispering to my heart? Whatever spirit led me I say thank you!! I am so grateful that I listened.
Now it is your turn to follow your personal dream. Donâ€™t let anything stop you; not the thoughts or opinions of others, not your age, not your location, not anything. Know that you have my blessing to honor your full potential. I see you going full steam ahead!
If I can help you with a personal consultation or hypnosis call or e-mail for your private appointment.
