How do I allow myself to be happy?
It’s a question a lot of people often ask themselves. It sort of implies that they not allowing themselves to be happy. It’s a really interesting question as it’s almost like there is a decision that they’ve made, or other people have made that they can’t allow themselves to be happy.
In this week’s video I share with you the story of a client whose main problem was that they couldn’t allow themselves to be happy, be spontaneous and have fun. Listen to the video about their story and how we worked together to help them overcome this problem.
“How can I allow myself to be happy, spontaneous and have fun? “
This was the question my client asked.
There was something stopping them all the time and when we went back to the root cause, it was from their unconscious mind. When they were a teenager they were surrounded by people who didn’t listen to them and, as a direct result, they didn’t say what they thought, in order not to upset people. It was an impossibility for them to tell people how hurt they felt about what was going on and they said they bottled up their feelings.
When I asked my client – what does that mean? What sort of bottle is that and where is it? They said it was a sort of grey bottle in their chest which was full of hurt, confusion and sadness. Of course, that has a consequence for yourself, your physiology, for your future and just being happy and was a problem that needed to be dealt with.
We did some Time Line Therapy which get’s rid of limiting decisions like
- ‘It’s not ok for me to be myself’,’
- ‘It’s not ok for me to say how feel,’ or
- ‘I’ve got to keep the peace.’
It also helps get rid of negative emotions like anger, sadness, fear, hurt and guilt. All this was going on in their unconscious mind and, following Time Line Therapy, all this was gone. The bottle had gone and they couldn’t find the feelings anymore.
That’s brilliant and it’s the reason I do what I do. It could take years of counselling to get to this point but with Time Line Therapy the thoughts and emotions that are limiting you, go really quickly.
So, I’d like to ask you
- Do you have any feelings that you bottle up and where have they come from?
- Can you picture that bottle inside you and what are the feelings that are inside it?
- What affect is that having on you?
Some of the learnings that my client had was to surround themselves with people who actually listen to them and to have self belief and self worth. It didn’t take very long to do that – less than two hours.
So maybe you’ve got some feelings that you are bottling up and you can’t let those feelings out? If you haven’t got the people around you that you can talk to, the bottle may stay full and then it is going to have consequences.
If that’s going on for you, I’d really like you to give me a shout so that we can get rid of that bottle and negative emotions and beliefs. Then you will be safer, happier and you can allow yourself to do whatever you want to do.
