Have you ever lacked the motivation to achieve a goal? Be it weight elimination, smoking cessation or a new job hypnosis can work with the subconscious mind to instill behaviors that help you achieve your personal goals.
At the conscious level we are wired by our environment to create conditioned responses. This means we are taught what we can and cannot achieve by our thoughts, by the people around us and by our past life experiences. It is true when they say if you think you can’t you can’t. But when you think you can, especially from the subconscious mind’s perspective then you truly can.
There are conversations, for lack of a better description, happening that you are not aware of in the subconscious mind. It has taken all these experiences and absorbed them at face value. The subconscious, like Universal energies, takes what you say, do and see as the truth. When you put yourself down, or call yourself a name, like fat, it thinks that is what you are and then coaches the body on how to make sure you are exactly that. Pretty powerful right? Not what you intended I am sure.
As we work with the Aries energy this month, we are focused on the self. This is a good time to closely listen to how you talk about yourself, how others talk about you and to watch how your body responds. If the vision you have for yourself is not becoming your reality then it is time to pay attention to what fuel you are giving your body. Like a car, the body cannot run without fuel. In this case we want to be sure our mind is being given the proper fuel. You cannot put unleaded in when it calls for regular and vice versa. If you do then the car does not run properly. So, what are you fueling your mind with? Where do you need to rewire how you are telling your body what you want? Where do you need to shut others off who are not fueling you as needed either?
Aries energy is very Mars like since this is the planet that rules that sign. Mars is the warrior of the zodiac. The sign is energetic, aggressive, fast moving. This is a fire sign, it is passionate, a go-getter, and sometimes a bit hot headed! Since it is the first house it also represents new beginnings, leadership, independence, and self-motivation. Who do you know with strong Aries energy? They are likely very opinionated, know what they want and go after it. Of course there is a lot of other signs and energies that make up the birth chart, but Aries energy is always very noticeable.
Mars as the ruler of Aries show you why this sign can be a bit aggressive. Mars wants to always conquer something or someone. It comes on hard and fast and tends to not look backwards. This is why the Mars retrogrades are so stressful, Mars does not like to slow down, ever. As a warrior this sign is strong, fierce, determined to a fault.
Aries is a Cardinal sign, since it is aligned with the beginning of Spring, all the Cardinal signs are aligned to a change in season. This is why this is such a good time to begin new things. As we change from Winter to Spring in the Northern Hemisphere we are ready to give birth to new things.
Aries rules the 1st house, which represents our body and the mask we wear as we present ourselves to the world. This house is what we refer to as your rising sign in the birth chart. This is the place the Sun was on the horizon the moment you were born. This is how people see you and it is here where we see physically the traits associated with the sign. Often when I see Aries or Mars energy in the first house I see someone who has a really fast metabolism. Outwardly they always appear to be a busy bee.
This is the perfect month for goal setting and vision boards. With hypnosis you can create a virtual vision board while working with the subconscious mind, to create the life you want to be living. The mind believes what you show it, and tell it. This is why when you watch movies or read a book your body can have a physical response to what it is seeing, or hearing. It thinks what it receives is real. This is why you see people having success manifesting the life they want, they have figured out how to speak to their subconscious mind in a way that it believes what it is seeing is real. It then shapes your life, your body, to match the input. This is also why you have to stop the negative self-talk. Especially since the subconscious mind does not process words like don’t. So, when you say I don’t want something, especially really passionately, it manifests exactly what you didn’t want. If you ever catch yourself doing that, immediately follow it up with a what you do want type of statement. Something like I never want to gain that much weight again, could make you do just that. Adding so I am going to eat right and exercise will negate that statement in the subconscious mind.
With Aries energy we can have new beginnings, let’s tap into that energy now and create the habits we want. The following is an audio file you can listen to once or multiple times. It can take up to 21 days to instill a new habit, perhaps that is a good goal to set for using this recording. You should listen without distraction, in a quiet place, with your phone on silent. This helps to reduce the distractions from the conscious mind and allows you to more easily connect to the subconscious mind. Access the session here.
For additional work with the signs and hypnosis you can take part in one of my coaching packages where we work with the current energy to help you achieve your personal goals. For more on this please visit my website www.maraleeburnett.com.
