Part I - Theory & Cognition
The available theories today on change could choke forty elephants. Promises of a quick fix are abundant. Since the study of human transformation has been at the center of my life for well over two decades, I am qualified to warn you against being seduced by powerfully marketed programs that promise you quick change. These false promises have given the personal development field a suspicious reputation. Experienced and well trained facilitators and alternative therapists disclose to their clients and participants that transformation is layered.
Today even modern psychologists primarily work with cognitive behavioural therapy known as CBT. It uses brief intervention and then onto the medication. They work on issues or symptoms and not the cause of problems. The results are good but they do not last.
Another modality known as neuro-linguistic programing (NLP) is one of dozens of cognitive based work that ignore what is embodied. Various forms of group hype will also temporarily ignite someone’s faith.
WHY IS IT SO DIFFICULT TO CHANGE?
Human behaviour is learned and modelled after others. Yes some of it is instinctive; however it is always based on unconscious drives and beliefs. They were put in place by conditioning from the environment (our families) and from intense overwhelming experiences that causes trauma.
Thoughts are generated by feelings that bubble up from the unconscious. They are often childish and immature. Our unconscious emotional turmoil or joy & happiness are generated from our bodies’ cellular memory and from its surrounding energy field.
Over time these beliefs and experiences create habits that are extremely tough to break. We become defended in both our identity and our character. We do this to protect ourselves from experiencing more pain, fear and doubt.
Accordingly, quick fix solution never, ever last because they cannot circumvent these deeply held patterns. You can take this to the bank. Avoid these theories & false promises like you would the plague.
So then, what critical cognitions (insights) should you take from this information? First and foremost that transformation is a process and not an event. And secondly, these processes are layered and must always include:
1) your body & mind
2) your soul
3) your energy of life & consciousness ( awareness )
This is the comprehensive theory of transformation & lasting change that we are offering. The results we consistently achieve for people just like you will give you a new life & a fresh start. Interested? Please click here.
