We are compilations of tendencies, patterns, and energies.
“…There is a dialectic between a skillful understanding of personal patterns and the desire to transcend these patterns because they do not lead to satisfying existence.

Interesting reflexion on personality and our identification with particular personality traits. It is easier to decide we are “this or that way” so that we have an idea of which pattern of thoughts, emotions and behaviour will be coherent with that personality trait. So we know how to think, how to feel and how to behave in particular situations. But it does not always have to be just one way or another. Investigate what possible personality traits exist, consider their interest to you, make sure they are healthy, realistic and manageable and then you will know that they can become part of who you are if you so wish them to. With the contribution of hypnotherapy, character changes and modifications which are healthy, realistic and manageable can be achieved. Working on building sufficient motivation towards those changes is crucial in order to achieve the change. Preparing for whatever ways change will affect our life – which can sometimes be scary- can be anticipated and prepared with the help of hypnosis.
