Inner Burdens

I spent last weekend doing the PSYCH-K® Master Facilitator course in Cape Town. The thing that stands out most is the power of this simple protocol. When you spend all those hours working together with other facilitators, there is a communal energy which fills the building and the shifts are profound.

I work alone most of the time, cut off from others in my field by mountains and the space of the little Karoo.  It is always a treat to share space with kindred spirits, sharing experience and learning new techniques. And it reaffirms the power of the work, and its ability to melt away resistance, and leave one feeling inspired and free from old tethers.

PSYCK-K® is all about removing limiting beliefs, and filling the void with new, positive and empowering belief systems. It is fascinating how we wrap our most secret truths and deepest hurts in a padding of seemingly innocuous thoughts. How many times over the weekend did I hear the words “I thought this was going to be a quick and easy balance”? The shifts were mental, physical and emotional, as we put down burdens we had been carrying around, sometimes for years.

Our subconscious is developed in the first six years of life, when we are downloading all that happens in our young lives. Unfortunately, our perceptions of our experiences are not always positive. This is how our limiting beliefs develop.  They will stay there, sabotaging our happiness until they are “reprogrammed” with better, supporting beliefs. So what is a limiting belief? Try “I am not good enough” or “Life is hard”, “There’s not enough love/money/time” or “I can’t study/do sport/lose weight.”  What is that little voice in your head saying, that inner critic? Or is your burden a memory, frozen in time, always ready to remind you that you are unworthy? The burden of things carried silently within us grows with every passing year. How do we put down these burdens? Where do we even begin?

The PSYCH-K® process is gentle and non-invasive. It is not necessary to rehash past hurts and talk about them endlessly. You can address past, present or future issues without sharing the details, very effectively. As your facilitator, I am there as a guide, to accompany you through your process, in a safe and supportive way. You can even work via telephone or internet, just as effectively, so no need to travel to find a facilitator. And just by the way, you are never too old to shift a limiting belief or to put down a burden.

The lighter the load, the easier it is to keep moving…
