How often do you ponder on any new experiences that we would like to create in your life? And similarly how easy for you is to stop doing and engaging in things that make you feel bored and fed-up?
The clues that can help us reveal our true potential are our secret hopes and dreams.
Our minds are active in protecting us from pain of disappointment and will always err on the side of caution, sticking to what it knows and has already experienced, however mediocre that is. “You’re too old, too young, (fill in the blank) to do that!”, “you haven’t got the right skills, qualifications blah blah blah”. Maybe you recognise this in yourself.
The danger is that this protective mechanism can turn into cynicism if too many dreams are broken, which could ultimately take away the joy of life, and in extreme cases the will to live. One has to question the idea of depression, because with this understanding, it’s not an ‘illness’ that befalls us but rather a net-effect of this problem.
My solution to this is an exercise that I take my clients through, which is a simple one:
Imagine what you would be ideally doing first in your personal and then in your professional life in 3 years time? Immerse yourself in that imagination, however crazy in may seem, see it , feel it , maybe even taste it.
By creating a new reality in your minds eye, you open your heart to a new possibility. This then temporally shifts you out of your conditioned mind, with all this pre-programmed, automated responses that would normally shut that dream down. Looking at this potential – YOUR POTENTIAL LIFE – will uncover and reveal all the social conditioning and emotional charges that are blocking that potential. By doing this exercise, even on your own, you will see those belief systems in the cold light of day and become more conscious of those ridiculous and redundant reasons why ‘you can’t live that life’. You will be able to exam them through a more truthful lens that opening your heart can bring to you.
Homeopathic remedies, if matched to these conditional beliefs will eliminate these energetic mental, emotional and even physical blocks (For example you will feel more energised when planning what you want to do) to your true potential. To give some examples :
- Shale, a mineral composite compromising of layers of shells represents doing things the way we’ve always done things – holding onto traditions that we were thought up by people who are now dead (think of shell representing security for the defenceless creature inside and the layers of shells once occupied by now deceased creatures), and therefore is usually an outmoded way, not relevant to the desires and potential that people have today.
- Human ovary – which as an egg just simply mean human potential. This remedy tackles the block to the lack of recognition or engagement with your true potential and useful for people whose dreams were blocked when they were young adults or teenagers – they we not allowed to explore their own ideas or dreams, and were maybe funnelled into something that met the expectations of the adults around them.
- Organophosphate represents artificially hot housing a young person to become something that is not authentic. When this person has to go out in the world without the artificial support, if they have not sufficiently connected with their own inner convictions and understandings will wilt like a hot house flower in the temperate climate. There has been some social commentary about the Millennial generation now entering the workplace and seeking the reassurance that they got from their families as their inner resilience, that comes from having to learn things in the face of personal challenges, is lacking.
- Strychnine represents believing that you are fated to have a limited life – we see this often in society in the form of ‘poverty consciousness’ as an example that pervades a family or society – it is often cited that lottery winners can squander the money quickly if they are in that mind-set.
I hope that I have offered a new perspective that is challenging, but also liberating. The message that I like to convey, is that we should not be seeking to fix or improve ourselves because:
Our full-potential, and ability to attain it, is already in-built into our systems.
Instead, we have to identify and liberate ourselves from those blocks to that true potential to live the life of our dreams…
