There are two big players, two main super-powers in the brain, acting like competing blocks, both believing they have our best interests at heart. And these are the Primitive part (the Limbic System) and the Conscious part (the Left Frontal Cortex). And the fact of the matter is, both of them do have our best interests at heart. Together they have got our species this far in our evolution and both have had, and will continue to have, an important role to play.
The Primitive part is in charge of the Fight, Flight or Freeze responses, and its job is simply to see things from the worst possible perspective and respond accordingly. The Conscious part is the really cool, innovative, creative and problem-solving part and it can only work best when the Primitive part isn’t bothering it.
On hearing this, quite a few of my clients who come to me with writer’s block initially think that it’s out of the Primitive part that writing flows. After all, emotion and dramatic responses are triggered from there. But even though those are the desired responses from their readers, the writer will write best and with most flow when they are least conflicted, and with most openness. And that’s when their Conscious part is top dog.
So using hypnosis, I will be able to help you feel more in control, better able to take risks and make mistakes, more open to falling in love with your own characters, boost your confidence so that you’re more open to criticism but resilient enough to not be thrown off-course by it.
And also, when in a trance, you’ll be able to hold your creative thoughts at a distance and see them better for that. And as a result, you’ll be able to know what’s working and what’s not. Plus new ideas will start to germinate in your mind, ideas that are your own of course, but perhaps one’s you might not have thought about before.
