Summer is over! It’s time to DO something before the September blues kick in.
This summer I deliberately set an intention to connect to ‘that something’ I needed to have more focus. While I’m doing my yoga and stretch exercises every day now, I am know what it is. I had to ‘appreciate what is’ with compassion and joy.
It gives me focus and energy and its puts me in action.
When school and work and ‘everything’ starts again, intentions seem to disappear
But suddenly schools starts, workload ramps-up and energy fades away. There are no signs their ideas become actual facts… it doesn’t happen. Everything stays the same.
Why people struggle to keep promises to themselves
Many people struggle with taking action on their intentions. They seem to drift on the water like a ship without a captain. Logically one-day, they feel stuck and tired, powerless or angry. “I can’t” again becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.
These things happen because people adopt too many beliefs that are not their own! Young children tend to automatically adopt other people’s ideas (from parents, family, teachers, etc). Supportive ideas of course. But also self-limiting ones like: “Better safe than sorry”, “Do what they ask”, “Work hard”, “Be modest”, “Never start your own business”, “Don’t fail” or “You are not smart enough to…”
These kind of ideas numb your unique self. Aligning yourself with other people’s beliefs or expectations can be paralyzing to take action for your own goals and desires.
Research provides insight into why this happens. The basic life conclusions about who we are and what we can expect from life are learned before kids are 7 years old. Neurosciences shows this is because kids are in a receptive brain state. Epigenetics explains beliefs are accumulated at cellular level and are hidden in the subconscious mind (Bruce Lipton, Joe Dispenza, Deepak Chopra, Elizabeth Blackburn).
Nobody is a victim
This does not mean you are a victim. Nobody can turn back time, so dwelling in the past won’t change how you feel and act today.
You have a choice. It’s up to you to take responsibility for your joy, health, relationships, fulfillment, communication, success… You CAN change limiting perceptions in every life area and move on.
Here’s how you can start today: 4 steps
- Decide now to only use your energy, intelligence and creativity to move towards realizing your goals and dreams. No excuses anymore!
- Tell yourself you’re worth it to make a fresh start. Tell yourself that’s you’re ready and willing to change.
- Liberate yourself from beliefs, feelings, memories, values that don’t serve you any more. Only by deleting and overwriting limiting old stuff you create space for something new.
- Change your perceptions and beliefs.

First aid for overcoming stressful situations or stumbling blocks (video).
Changing perception in the subconscious can be done with various modalities (hypnosis, meditation, EFT…) Just use what works for you.
I use PSYCH-K.
Check out this video to learn a quick and simple relaxation technique. It aims at synchronizing the brain and works as a “first aid” for overcoming stressful situations or stumbling blocks.
Just sit in the whole-brain posture and repeat your goal statement until you sense it is integrated. Feel the relief and take the first step. Observe the results.
If the results are not yet there, consider to use the transformational processes of PSYCH-K.
