In absolute truth I believe in both. You’ll never get your outcomes if all you do is dream and never take action……but how do you know what you want if we don’t allow ourselves to dream? Maybe it's time to build a bridge and realise we can do both.
In my opinion our western way of life puts so much emphasis on logical, action based thinking we forget about our creativity, imagination and passions. It’s like being trapped in a cage of targets and pressure……..it’s no wonder people clamber for escapisms and fun.
We’re so busy comparing ourselves to the ‘you should be doing x’ according to our well defined logical lives……that if you don’t fit this box you feel alienated, full of anxiety and quite frankly lost. It’s really no wonder depression and anxiety figures are on the rise.
Do I think positive thinking and self healing actually work? Yes!!! Of course they bloody do. If you cut yourself you heal don’t you??? Our bodies are designed to heal but does that mean I don’t use medication……no!!! Everything has its place and I don’t believe it has to be one or the other but you can put equal amount of emphasis on both.
And often life is rubbish and throws you things which are hard to deal with and you can choose to feel like a victim, feeling alone, angry or hurt, day in and day out, or you can take the occasional ‘den day’ feeling awful and then muster up all the positivity you can and crack on. Perpetual negative thoughts have been proven to only lead you to a more miserable place.
There are so many myths about hypnotherapy, wishy washy isn’t something I would use to describe it. Does hypnotherapy encourage you to use your creative brain……yes. Does this approach often result in different answers…..yes. Does relaxing and getting away from the pressure of life help you feel better……yes. So since when did doing things the hard way and having to feel rubbish day after day become the only answer? Through hypnotherapy you can relax, solve your own challenges and feel good whilst doing it so why wouldn’t you want to?
Personally I think it’s time to stop thinking we have to choose one or the other. Action and hard work will get you there but don’t forget to dream, create and feel good whilst you’re doing it.
