One of the biggest discoveries, for you and me, is the fact that you can’t produce a different life by changing a belief.
If it worked, and it doesn’t, then all the people who do affirmations, afformations, self-hypnosis, hypnosis, brain entrainment, EFT, would be the most successful people on Earth in the area that they are targeting.
Comparison Of The Different Healing Modalities, Hypnosis, Visualization, Affirmations, Brain Entrainment, Energy, And Activation
What is the difference between modalities that try to implant new thoughts, new beliefs or change existing ones?
Let me look what are these modalities:
1. Hypnosis 2. Visualization 3. Affirmations, overt or covert (subliminal included) 4. Subliminal of any medium, including visuals 5. Brain entrainment of any kind 6. Energy alignment, reconnecting, Healing Codes, sound entrainment, network chiropractic, tapping, etc. 7. Activation Did I miss any category?
The first six modalities are narrow-band modalities. They try to effect the areas they know are responsible for certain kinds of behavior, that store the beliefs.
Please remember that this case study is concerned with one aspect: does the modality raise your vibration permanently. That is the only question I answer here, that is my only concern.
Why? Because there are tons of life-coaches, lots of “transformational” programs, lots of spiritual teachers, lots of meditation, yoga, brain-entrainment, etc. programs are out there that create a feel-good effect, but the effect isn’t lasting, and you have to go back for more.
What do I mean?
Examples of stuck states
Let me give you a few examples: A friend of mine follows a guru. She even became one of the “master teachers” of the guru’s energy modality.
She goes to these weekends and comes back, high as a kite… but comes down crashing. She is taking more and more time out of her business to “seek” enlightenment.
Her main issues of avoiding risk, and being alone aren’t solved, but she keeps going back..
An ex teacher of mine, today a mastermind partner, is exhausted again. She is yelling at her husband. She is worried. She works from the moment she wakes up till she crashes at night.
When I examine, she is running on old patterns, like a puppet on a string, battling some invisible scarcity monster that won’t let up. She has had many coaches, but the situation is getting worse… the real issue isn’t addressed.
What’s predictable is that she will never get off the war-path till she dies.
Another acquaintance of mine wants to be successful, make money, travel the world, be a sought after “transformational” coach.
In the 10 years I’ve been watching her, she has avoided learning anything. She hasn’t read a book from cover to cover. She watches videos on youtube and reads articles on blogs, and then sends them to me.
She hasn’t made any useful action in the direction of her goal… She is continually trapped in lala land of self-delusion.
The underlying craving for success, and the underlying fear of failure, fear of finding out that she is not as good as she thinks she is causes her life to be hellish.
