RESOLVING TO CHANGE: HOW TO DO IT RIGHT AND MAKE IT LAST!
Anne Milligan. January 1, 2013

So many of us set New Year's resolutions in January. We really mean to change. But not many people follow through. Why is that? How does a well-intentioned plan turn to nothing?

Permanent change from old to new habits
always starts with a change on the inside. Our perspective makes ALL the difference in the WORLD in terms of whether we are able to really change or just mouth the words.
Lately, I've been approaching this by making two columns on a blank piece of paper. One column is titled "Want" and the other column "Need". There is a huge difference between the two. The truth is that, if we are living an authentic life (i.e., not harming anyone), our needs are most likely already met, or will be met when we need them.
The "want" is where we get stuck.
Our deepest heart's desire was planted there for a reason and it can lead us down the path of our happiest and most authentic self. Often, all we need is a change of perspective if there is a block between our current status and our wants.

These are some of the most common blocks to having our "wants" met :

1. A sense of unworthiness and a thought pattern addiction to "less than".
2. An emotional block that needs to be freed in order for there to be a SPACE for something new to move in. Most often this is an attachment to pain and the victim role. THAT is a tough one and many of us do not want to acknowledge that one. We will both ask for help and hold defiantly to the victim role at the same time, as if our LIFE depended on it. This HAS to change in order for anything new to happen. Consider the fact that 90% of our brain cells are currently unused!!!! That doesn't sound like victim, does it?
3. The final block to "wants" is the inability to focus. This is where I have experienced the most potential for change to happen in my own life and the lives of others. We simply must learn to focus. In our current situation, brain research has shown that we use a huge percentage of our visual energy, for example, on scanning the environment for threat. When we perceive constant threat, we cannot grow. We cannot see the blessings and the possibilities that abound in the universe and in ourselves.
WE MUST LEARN TO FOCUS AWAY FROM THREAT AND INTO ABUNDANCE. How do we do this while still attached to a "victim" role?
I personally believe that hypnotherapy holds the key. I really do. I have seen it over and over again. I believe this is possible because of the way our mind gravitates toward the most familiar patterns FIRST and only changes those patterns with an intervention that is MORE powerful than the familiar pattern of thought. Hypnosis
in the context of therapy helps break the old pattern and recreate a more functional one.
