Heaven or Hell? Three Ways To Use The Power of Your Mind

Do you use the power of your mind to create heaven or hell? Are you directing your movie, or is your subconscious mind in control? It’s time to take charge and discover how you can transform your thoughts and beliefs with the help of hypnotherapy and EFT tapping therapy.

“The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven..” John Milton, Paradise Lost

Many of us find ourselves trapped in our minds, replaying negative scenarios on a loop. We generate around 70,000 thoughts a day, and a significant portion of them tend to be negative. This doesn’t mean that we are negative as such. Instead, we have developed habitual and repetitive thoughts over time, which are like a broken record in the mind. However, you have the power to take control of your thoughts.

Thoughts themselves are not real, but the thoughts you think on a habitual basis create your version of reality. Like living in a virtual reality, the landscape of your mind and the way you see yourself and the world are based on those thought structures. Thoughts themselves are neutral – simply two neurons in the brain connecting. What makes thoughts come alive is the meaning we place on them, and the emotions associated with those thoughts and thought structures. For example, if you have a thought that you are stupid, and you have thought that over some time, that thought will have developed into a belief (a thought that you keep thinking), and possibly an identity. If we keep believing these thoughts to be true, then we will keep giving them our attention.

If you believe something to be true, you’ll live your life based on that belief. If you want to be successful in your career, but you believe that you are stupid, that belief is going to get in the way of you tapping into your true potential. That belief will limit you, and stop you from being more visible and going for new opportunities. But what if that belief wasn’t true? The only person who can decide if something is true is you! You have the power to create a whole new reality and identity about yourself! But trying to tell yourself to ‘think positively’ can feel like wrestling your thoughts to the ground, and there are easier ways to transform the inner landscape of your mind.

This is why I love hypnotherapy and EFT Tapping Therapy. Hypnotherapy bypasses the conscious mind to work directly with the unconscious mind, planting new seeds of thought that grow into new thought structures from which you can live a happier and more enriched life where you thrive.

EFT Tapping Therapy on the other hand neutralises thought patterns, taking away their power over you. Thoughts carry their energy frequency, as do emotions, which are energy in motion. EFT Tapping Therapy is a powerful way to treat and neutralise thoughts that don’t serve you. Clients I work with love me teaching them how to use EFT Tapping Therapy on themselves because it’s such a wonderful tool to have in their back pocket to calm down the mind.

As a result, many people who have experienced hypnotherapy and EFT Tapping Therapy report feeling more confident, self-assured, and empowered in their everyday lives – just like Louise.

Meeting Sara was wonderful. She’s so bright and cheerful and made me feel instantly relaxed and open. We focused on a number of points in our sessions and she always made me look forward rather than fixating on the past which is definitely something I’ve taken away with me. I felt that every session was worthwhile. Some forms of counselling I’ve experienced allow you to spend an hour moaning about your day at work or similar when there are much bigger issues at hand. I felt Sara very quickly got to the root of my anxiety and self esteem and we approached it in a number of ways, and I now use some of those tactics in day to day life to help me relax and let go of the past and enjoy the day to day!

The Prison of Your Own Mind: Imagine a day when a conflict with a colleague leaves you agitated. As you drive home, your mind replays the incident, spiralling your emotions out of control. We’ve all been there, and it’s as if we live in the prison of our minds, even when the door is wide open.

The Magnets of Your Thoughts: Your thoughts are like magnets, attracting similar thoughts and creating a chain reaction. If you start with a negative thought, it quickly attracts more negativity. Before you know it, you’re on a one-way high-speed train of thought.

Gratitude Thinking: Spending a few minutes each morning thinking about things you’re grateful for can set a positive tone for your day. Writing down your reflections also reinforces the positivity and helps you shift your perspective.

Our minds often lack a filter system, only showing us what we “see.” But what we see doesn’t always reflect reality. In Stephen Covey’s “7 Habits of Highly Effective People,” he shares a story about perception on a New York subway. A man’s unruly children changed the atmosphere in the subway car, but when confronted, the man revealed he had just lost his wife. A shift in perspective transformed the situation.

By changing your perception, you introduce alternatives and break the cycle of black-and-white thinking. This change in thinking can reshape your brain’s neural pathways, much like moulding plasticine.

Misusing your imagination is a common issue. We often imagine negative outcomes, causing unnecessary stress. Instead, use your imagination to visualise success. Your mind can’t distinguish between real and imagined scenarios, so harness this power to anticipate positive outcomes. The more you practice, the more the Law of Attraction will work in your favour, as you’ll come to expect positive results.

Three Ways To Use The Power of Your Mind

  1. Become Thought-Aware: Practice meditation, mindfulness, or gratitude thinking to stay present. Remember, your power lies in the now!

Meditation: Take a few minutes each day to sit quietly, focus on your breath, and observe your thoughts without judgment. Meditation helps you gain control over your mind, fostering a sense of peace and inner calm. It’s like hitting the pause button on your racing thoughts, allowing you to respond to life’s challenges with clarity and composure.

Mindfulness: Being mindful means fully engaging with the present moment, and savoring it without distractions. Whether you’re sipping your morning coffee, going for a walk, or spending time with loved ones, immerse yourself in the experience. Notice the sights, sounds, and sensations around you. Mindfulness can enhance your appreciation for life’s simple pleasures, making each day more fulfilling.

Gratitude Thinking: Dedicate a few moments every morning to contemplate the things you’re grateful for. It could be the support of your loved ones, your health, or the opportunities that lie ahead. Writing down your thoughts amplifies the positive impact of gratitude. By acknowledging the blessings in your life, you start your day on a positive note, creating a ripple effect of optimism.

2. Shift Perspective: Embrace gratitude thinking to focus on the positives in your life. There are always others facing greater challenges.

Count Your Blessings: Make a habit of listing at least three things you’re thankful for daily. These could be as simple as a sunny day, a delicious meal, or a kind gesture from a friend. By recognising the abundance in your life, you’ll gradually shift your focus away from what’s lacking or negative.

Journal Your Journey: Keep a gratitude journal where you regularly jot down moments of appreciation. Reflect on how these moments have enriched your life and lifted your spirits. Over time, your journal will serve as a powerful reminder of the positivity surrounding you.

3. Harness Imagination: Direct your mental movie by visualising success, and crafting positive thoughts, behaviors, and emotions.

Visualisation Techniques: Set aside time each day to visualise your goals and dreams coming to fruition. See yourself achieving success, experiencing joy, and overcoming obstacles. The more vividly you can imagine these scenarios, the more your mind will work towards turning them into reality.

Affirmations: Create positive affirmations that resonate with you and align with your goals. Repeat these affirmations daily to reprogram your subconscious mind. For instance, if you’re working on self-confidence, say, “I am confident, capable, and worthy of success.” Affirmations have the power to instil empowering beliefs and boost your self-esteem.

Positive Self-Talk: Pay attention to your inner dialogue. Replace self-criticism and doubt with self-encouragement and self-compassion. When faced with challenges, remind yourself of your strengths and resilience. This shift in self-talk can lead to a more confident and optimistic mindset.

By incorporating these practices into your daily life, you’ll not only become more thought-aware but also develop a deeper sense of gratitude and the ability to shape your imagination in ways that foster positivity, resilience, and personal growth.

Ready to take control of your mind? Hypnotherapy and EFT tapping therapy can help you unlock your full potential and create a more positive and fulfilling life.

Don’t let your mind dictate your reality. Embrace the power of your thoughts and beliefs, and watch your life transform for the better.
