The weird ways your mind fixes itself

You’ve solved millions of problems in your own mind. Really – millions. Many of the things that scared you as a toddler are irrelevant now. How many of your pains from your teen years are downright laughable?

This is proof of progress.

Things that were difficult are now trivial.

It’s not all progress, of course. You can face setbacks in your life. Something can shatter your confidence.

But if you’re reading this, then you’re more mentally powerful now than when you were a baby.

You rise more than you fall, at least while you’re alive.

And here are a few rules – or maybe guidelines – your mind uses to perform this miracle.

Some are obvious, others are controversial.

Some are universal, others are reliable generalisations.

A few of these are accurate descriptions, while others are a smidge more metaphoric.

I’m not fussed if you agree with these or not. But if you don’t, you might want to reflect on it more deeply – you could have an epiphany that’ll open things up for you.

Here we go:

  • Your problems don’t exist in the world. They exist in your mind. This is good news, as it means you own them.
  • Your mind carries the solutions. It also carries a lot of things. Growth occurs when you figure out what solution goes with what problem.
  • Your mind is on your side. Every thought, feeling, impulse and craving is there because your mind thinks it helps you.
  • Your mind is clumsy. It might think smoking protects you because, as a teen, you accidentally learned it makes you cool. Being cool is important.
  • Your mind is sophisticated. It knows how to transform your life into something unimaginably better, and I mean that literally.
  • Your mind is like another person. They want what’s best for you, but will only put up with so much abuse and neglect.
  • Your mind wants to change.
  • Your mind resists change.
  • Your mind is phenomenally complex, which is how it can be seemingly contradictory at times. If you’ve ever met a human, you know they’re complicated and fickle.
  • Your mind is like the internet. There’s only so much you can say about the network as a whole. As you focus on smaller chunks of it, you can describe it with greater detail.
  • Some of those chunks are in competition with others. All of them can be broken down into smaller chunks. While they sometimes clash, they all want what’s best for you.
  • Important thoughts tend to loop. Thinking requires mental energy, which is finite. This means shutting down a harmful or even useless loop releases more energy for other things.
  • You can consciously control your attention. What you focus on is what your mind assumes is important.

I could go on, but that’s a heck of a list already.

And you might be wondering – so what? How does this help you?

How can you use this in your everyday life?

Countless ways.

But if you really want to apply all that at once, turn to hypnosis. Hypnosis, at least the way I practice it, works by knowing principles like these.

If you think your brain is hardwired, problems exist in the world, your mind is homogenous and you’re aware of everything you think, you’d struggle to hypnotise anyone else.

But disciplined exposure to hypnosis would change your life.

It’ll open your mind to everything going on beneath the surface.

From there, you have the power to change it.

Alright, that’s enough on all that.

Enough theory, more application.

Put these principles, and more, into action right here, right now:
