Helping therapists align their dream lives and businesses
Studies show us that when we have an external focus of control, we have more anxiety and depression, so when we bring this in and become the solution and align with our real needs … when we align with [them] … we can tap into that flow better. (Dr. Shannon South)
You can tune yourself, like an instrument, to your needs and desires so that you are better able to care for yourself. This happens by working on your healing.
By focusing your control on your internal self you have more confidence, peace, and ability to cope with fluctuations in the external world.
Step into parts of [yourself] that are beyond the mind, [so that you] are not just all mental. (Dr. Shannon South)
Make use of visualization, meditation, breathwork, and many different modalities that help you to connect your physical body and your conscious mind. Have this unison and compassion between mental and physical instead of having your mind work against your body and your sensations.
Traps that can stop people from moving forward
There are different subconscious survival traps that people can fall into which keep them stuck in the past, blocking their attempts and progress at moving forward.
Some of them are:
The not-enough trap
The spiritual bypass and running after any quick solution
Depression and burnout
Your intuition is your soul’s calling
Intuition is your soul [speaking] … that part of us that is longing [for] us to grow, that’s pulling us, luring us to the soul [to grow] towards our callings and our passion … and passion is the pipeline to the soul. (Dr. Shannon South)
Find your passions, because they are the bridges that can take you to the things that are nourishing for you.
Allow space for the things that are healing and nourishing to you once you find them. Schedule time for them in your days and weeks to improve your self-connection.
