Here’s something you probably already know, whether from a medical standpoint, psychological standpoint or physical standpoint, human beings are complex creatures. Put in the effort and you may be surprised by how capable you are of incredible things, breaking through boundaries never before thought possible and performing way beyond (even your own) expectations.
Unfortunately, however, so many of us are bogged down by self-defining setbacks that form habits that undermine our abilities.
What are belief patterns?
Simply put, belief patterns are made up of thoughts and feelings that are usually present in the subconscious mind. These patterns shape our external realities somewhat.
We learn through experiences and gather information about cause and effect, rewards and disappointments, as well as other reactionary aspects. They foster a network of prevailing beliefs that we feel are true.
Beliefs, thoughts and ideas are absorbed by the mind (especially by children) from external sources like parents, media and dominant culture. Popular statements like “boys don’t cry” or “don’t question authority” are good examples of external beliefs that eventually form into belief patterns within our subconscious. Gradually, adults maintain these patterns and don’t break away from them.
Belief patterns are such a core part of the development of our character (and they aren’t always positive). However, much like the thoughts and feelings that they’re made up of, belief patterns can be changed.
Yes, they can be changed
Whenever people form and hold certain beliefs or belief patterns, you could say that they have essentially given up a part of their free-will. The fact that thoughts, feelings and ideologies are limited by beliefs, creates a guideline to life. These guidelines determine what is acceptable, what is possible, and what is meant to be.
This leads to actions based on belief patterns. We might avoid things that could be good for us, we might avoid venturing out of our comfort zones or we might feel overwhelmed by anxiety because of the belief patterns that we subconsciously develop.
However, as has been mentioned earlier, belief patterns can be changed!
Illogical fears, persistent phobias, addiction, hatred, dislikes and insecurities can all be managed and can be gradually replaced with productivity, optimism and confidence.
People have used a number of techniques, tactics, strategies and methods in order to break the cycles brought about by their belief patterns and incorporate more positive changes.
Look closely and you just might find that hypnosis is actually very firmly rooted in science and practised by experts who serve patients in real situations.
In this discipline, the subconscious state must be tapped into, in order to tackle problems at their roots. Positive reaffirmation, as well as gradual sessions, can identify pain points.
Hypnotherapy is used to help patients overcome common fears such as those associated with public speaking, performing or excelling in the workplace. Through this form of treatment, people can form meaningful relationships, heal and more. Anxiety, depression and traumas that have been developed over time can all be treated (and possibly even cured completely). Make sure you come into each treatment session with a hopeful heart, a willingness to share your problems with a trusted professional and an interest in discovering your inner-self.
