Why Do I Feel Stuck?
By Shana Rosenthal, Certified Consulting Hypnotist
I hear from my clients so often that they have a feeling that they can’t even explain, it’s sometimes described as an emotional block, feeling stuck or a lack of something. They know they don’t like this feeling, they know that they are not living their best life, they feel something is holding them back but have difficulty articulating exactly what it is, they can just feel it. In fact statistics suggest that only 3 out of 10 people are genuinely happy with their lives.
Identifying the feeling is the first step but doing something about it is where the magic happens, however all too often the “doing something” is the hardest part. Seeking help means they have to admit to someone else there is a problem in the first place, and like it or not, ego can get in the way. I guarantee once that is overcome, life begins to turn around. We are all human, not one of us is perfect, and no they are not crazy knowing there is something holding them back without necessarily knowing exactly what it is.
Why We Get Stuck
Can you identify with this feeling? Let me explain what is going on; your current feeling states, moods and levels of stress are formed by emotional responses and subsequent chemical reactions to specific events in your life. These events and chemical reactions are stored in your cellular, physical and emotional memories, and when something in the present day looks or feels similar to the old event, you react again as if you have encountered the original event. When this happens you enter a naturally occurring hypnotic state which keeps you stuck, frozen, unable to move forward. This is the feeling that is so familiar to you and many others and the reason why you can’t just talk yourself out of this rut.
Your subconscious mind is just like a computer, it has endless capacity and is responsible for storing every event and feeling you attached to that event based on how you perceived your surroundings at that moment in time. When you remember those events, you relive the same feelings you attached to them at the time, which creates the “stuckness” – but here’s the secret; memories are not real, they are just recordings from the past. Your subconscious mind does not know the difference between reality and imagination which is why the feelings come flooding back as if you were actually reliving the event, your subconscious mind moves into protection mode by preventing you from moving forward, which creates the feelings of being stuck or being emotionally blocked. So what can you do about it?
How Can I Get Unstuck?
What if you could re-write the memory (or recording) and detach from the emotions and feelings related to it? Imagine for a moment how that would positively affect your life. You really do have the power to release yourself from the burdens of your past, which will free you from whatever is holding you back. Hypnosis allows communication with the subconscious, which enables a skilled Hypnotist to guide you to reframe that recording, resulting in a release of the feelings and emotions attached to it and voilà that stuck feeling disappears, you are left feeling like you have nothing standing in your way to truly live your life without limits.
Hypnosis can significantly impact the direction and quality of your life. If you would like to become more focused, make progress, enjoy a greater feeling of self-worth, feel more relaxed around others and authentically feel great from the inside out then, Hypnosis really is for you.
