It is a really great exercise to stop and ask yourself why. What is your motivation in the various areas of your life and what do you really care about? Your purpose is what keeps your passion and joy alive.
Sometimes life gets too much, the world seems to be falling apart around us, and we are not sure what to hold onto anymore. It might be your relationships, your physical environment, your finances, your work. At other times, you may not be clear what has happened but you feel exposed and vulnerable.
When “stuff” happens you have an opportunity to rediscover our your sense of identity, safety, and well-being or your core, and your why which is the only truly safe place to call home.
The core of your being is not affected by circumstance or subject to the changes that happen. Who you really are is steady and consistent. as the sun. Sure, there are times when your core seems to be hard to find but it is always there, unchanging and strong.
Fifteen or so years ago I went through a very difficult time finishing many years with a manipulative and abusive husband who dissipated most of my finances. Shortly after I discovered that I had breast cancer and my world definitely felt as though it was falling apart.
That was a very good time to reassess my WHY and my WHO I am.
I went back to my roots as a neurophysiologist and took the risk of spending even more scarce money on a series of additional training programs and diplomas as I went on a journey to heal myself and rediscover my core person.
Hypnotherapy and especially The Richards Trauma Process (TRTP) were the tools I used to heal myself and I now run my hypnotherapy practice because I know very personally how life changing it is and I want to share this with others.
This is my WHY.
Never waste your life drifting without knowing your why or just living someone else’s design for you. You will be a much better friend, lover, partner and self when you choose to find your why.
