How to use Affirmations

Darryl Bachmeier Sep 5, 2019 Mind

The word affirmation derives its meaning from the word affirm to imply that something is right. It includes sentences that aim to affect both the subconscious and conscious mind. Hence, they can affect the environment, habits, thinking patterns, and behavior. Composing the affirmation can involuntarily and automatically bring up related mental images that can motivate, energize, or inspire. The resultant mental images and claims can get engraved on the subconscious mind to change the reactions, actions, habits, and behavior. What Do Affirmations Do?

Darryl Bachmeier Aug 10, 2019 Mind

Have you ever had a day when you simply couldn’t focus on your work because your mind was fixated on something terrible that had happened in another part of the world? Or maybe you got into an argument with someone on social media and it left your mind in a bitter state, making you unable to do anything productive? If you can relate to these scenarios, then you are not alone. Millions of people from all over the world face a similar predicament in today’s hyper-connected and hyper-active world. Thanks to the internet and social media, more information is available at our fingertips than we could possibly consume in an entire lifetime. On top of that, the Netflix documentary The Social Dilemma has shown how social media platforms are designed to trap you inside a rabbit hole of extreme content that hacks your mind, habits, and thoughts. At a time...

Insights of Perception vs Reality

Darryl Bachmeier Aug 9, 2019 Mind

Whether it is the business world, the political arena, or marriages, there is always disagreement or conflict: “Perception is the truth.” This proverb is often used to justify an opinion that is not objectively justified or unrelated to reality. It is used as a catalyst to win over others in accepting one’s preferred reality. At the most philosophical level, this proverb creates a sense of relativity (think thinly) in absolute contexts (think the world is flat). The relevance of feeling in our daily lives has always been a topic of debate, with one percent arguing that this is about 30% of what we consider our reality. In contrast, others seem to be more comfortable with figures above 50. Ultimately, it all depends on the individual, collective knowledge, facts and experiences, all of which have a creative influence on the mind, the ability to perceive its reality. Stages of Perception vs...

The ‘Magic’ behind superstition

Darryl Bachmeier Aug 5, 2019 Mind

Have you ever instinctively said ‘bless you’ to someone who sneezed around you? Or noticed that your heart skipped a beat when someone told you that your flight was scheduled for the ‘13th’? Think about these instances for a moment, and you will quickly come to the conclusion that there is nothing logical about saying ‘bless you’ to someone who sneezes, or about being anxious that your flight is on the 13th day of the month. Yet, many people continue to do both of these things. Superstitions like these are more common than we might think, and even though we may not realize it, most of us tend to indulge in superstitious practices in some areas of our lives. What are superstitions? A superstition is a belief that two seemingly unrelated events have some kind of causal relationship between them. For example, many people believe that it is a harbinger...

Coming to grips with self-destructive behavior

Darryl Bachmeier Jul 22, 2019 Mind

Have you ever found yourself in a situation in which you know that you have very little time to complete an assignment but you keep on procrastinating, down to the very last hour? Or maybe you know you shouldn’t be drinking too much alcohol or binge-eating food, but you feel completely powerless against your impulses? Self-destructive behavior comes in many different shapes and sizes. It can range from something relatively mild as binge-eating to life-threatening behaviors like physical self-harm and substance abuse. It can also be something you do unconsciously in your interpersonal relationships like excessive people-pleasing, clinging to those not interested in you, pushing loved ones away, or letting your mind wallow in self-pity. What leads toward self-destructive behavior? People who find themselves stuck in cycles of self-destructive behavior are more often than not trying to deal with some underlying psychological or emotional troubles from their past. Their mind...

What are Limiting Beliefs?

Darryl Bachmeier Jul 21, 2019 Mind

A large number of us are continually endeavoring to develop new things and ultimately grow in our lives. Each new year we set aside our goals and some ideal opportunities that we aim to accomplish. We start the year off with good self-discipline, yet it’s normal to feel demotivated after some time and lose inspiration in the things we wanted to achieve. It is essential to remember that what you let yourself believe is the thing that you accept. This can assume a significant part in how you see the world around you and how you feel. If you open your mind, you will find a conviction that is keeping you from being effective. This is otherwise called limiting beliefs. You have certain decision-making tendencies that manage the choices you make. They influence how you decipher the occasions in your day-to-day existence, and they impact the way you think, feel,...

How Person-Centered Therapy Facilitates Self-Realization?

Darryl Bachmeier Jul 19, 2019 Mind

Everyone experiences ups and downs in their lives. Sometimes, you go through such experiences that make you feel lonely, grieved, low self-esteemed, or low self-worth. In such situations, you need therapy that makes you realize your value and helps you to build trust and confidence in your capabilities to keep moving and growing. This type of therapy which helps the person feel accepted and understand their feelings without interpreting their unconscious thoughts is called person-centered therapy. It’s an effective approach to emphasize your understanding and your perspective of any situation that you experienced and make you believe in your potential to take the next step forward. Person-Centered Therapy vs Directive Therapy Methods Person-centered therapy differs from other directive therapy methods that are generally followed to treat psychological issues or mental disorders. In a directive therapy approach, the whole focus of the therapist is on your issue that could be related...
