When making important decisions, those who always seem to get it right are usually those who trust their gut. Their intuition. Even if they quickly find a convincing logical justification for.
Often referred to as “inner knowing” in holistic circles and the “predictive processing framework” in neuroscience, our subconscious processes all the information gathered by our mind and body (and for the more open minded, our soul) to help us make decisions. However this also includes all the marketing, algorithm generated social media posts, and the conditioning within our society that we experience, plus our emotional responses to all of this information.
Whether making a life altering decision like changing career, or smaller decisions like picking the right gym, every step we take alters our path in some way. So how can we trust our intuition and and increase the odds of making the right choice?
The first step is to access more of this subconscious information available to us.
The second is to use wisdom to filter it.
And thirdly to know our true desires, so our decisions are aligned with those.
The capacity of the subconscious mind is vast, processing information at a rate of 20, 000, 000 bits per second, by contrast the conscious mind only process 40 bits per second. Hypnosis allows us to access the subconscious mind through a combination of relaxation, distracting conscious thinking and using metaphors and imagery. Have you ever had a micro dream while hitting the snooze button and had a day’s worth of adventure in 5 minutes? This is the basic idea. We get more done in an hour than in months of talking sessions. And because we bypass all the conscious fliers of our conscious mind, we just get truth and authenticity.
We cannot control external events but doing what’s right for us, feeling confident about our choices and ultimately being luckier in our judgements is totally achievable.
