Did You Know…

 

 

We know from current brain research that all of our experiences reflect off of the ‘mirror of memory’ in our brains. This is nothing more than the stored accumulation, both conscious and unconscious, of the history of our experiences.

If our experiences in life have been generally supportive and positive, all current experiences will reflect off this ‘mirror’ and feel positive.

If, however, you have had a lot of early or unresolved trauma or loss, this will be reflected or “mirrored” back to you in your current life and keep you perpetually distressed.

For example, your thinking will reflect your distress and you will tell yourself things you learned a long time ago that jeopardize your happiness and wellbeing — such as, “I’m not worth it”, “Nobody loves me” and/or “I’m helpless to change my life”. These ‘old ideas’ can be very subtle at times, and yet they can keep you stuck in an unfulfilled life.

The good news is, it’s possible to change your inner mirror, and with that follows a change in your thinking and perceptions of yourself and the world around you. 

You deserve to develop a view that is reflected back to you in positive self talk and feelings of self worth and self love!

While there are individuals who are able to do this on their own, we know that many benefit from the help of skilled professional counsellors and therapists.

If you or someone you know or love is struggling with a negative view of the world, addiction, trauma or relationship problems don’t hesitate to contact us.  We are here for you.

Please feel free to leave a comment. I’d love to hear from you.
