Remember, the conscious mind is the thinking mind, and the subconscious is the feeling mind. Most people, when they want to change something about themselves will think and talk about what they want. You can spend decades engaged in talk-psychotherapy and not get anywhere. Because while we think with the conscious, we DO with the subconscious. If there is a discrepancy between what you are consciously thinking and what is programmed in your subconscious, the subconscious wins. No matter how or what you think, you can only do what the subconscious FEELS like doing. The most effective way to get under the hood and rewrite the programs whizzing around in the subconscious mind is through hypnosis.
