Life at the Edge of Possibility for Transforming Heart, Mind and Soul: Ericksonian Hypnosis Seminars
By the time we are adults, we live by a set of habitual behaviors, thoughts, beliefs, and emotional reactions. These may have evolved from trauma, fearful experiences, or normal everyday worries. Without inner exploration, these unconscious programs turn on brain circuits and cause us to believe our reality is true. The result is that we hardwire the brain to reflect the problems, personal conditions, and circumstances in our lives.
