When we make something important we attach meaning and value to it. Often, this leads to problems. Let’s say you feel it is important to work on your thesis, to exercise, or to spend time with your kids. What if that doesn’t happen today? What if you get bogged down with other stuff and it just gets missed? In steps guilt. Guilt is how primitive mind communicates “hurry up and do that now” even when there’s a timing glitch of “there’s nothing to do because that time has passed.”
So the next day,you assign even more importance to the thing. You say “today will be different because I really need to do…” whatever it was. So today comes and you spend energy thinking about that important thing. You think about doing it, but you don’t do it.
Do you know why you didn’t do it? You got blocked. Mind blocked the action because it seemed so important that it attached a value of danger. If we have to watch out for something, then it is on our radar as a potential hazard. Mind reacts by withdrawing. Then in lumbers guilt – stupid guilt – saying “but you should have…” whatever it was. All this, even while there is no time traveling ability to go back and do the thing. Timing glitch.
If you want to achieve your goals, mind needs to be trained on how to disassociate meaning and value from things so that things have none of this false importance. This alleviates writers block, progresses you into action, lowers stress, and eliminates guilt. I can teach your mind to work more efficiently. For a consultation, call 954-612-9553.
