Why Do We Distract? Because We Are Not Exactly Sure What Feelings Are For – Episode 4

Emotions are like guages on a carWhat I am going over with you in this program is not something that I learned in graduate school.  It was learned by conducting thousands of hours of hypnosis with real clients, with real problems.  While doing that work, I had the opportunity to talk directly with the subconscious mind and learn what was causing the problem.  What I learned is that there was a painful emotion that was driving us to distraction and, as a result we eat too much, drink too much, shop too much, gamble too much, and so on.

One of the interesting things about that work is that some of my clients have been doctors, counselors, psychologists, and so on.  As I began to understand this secret language, I started explaining it to them.  After a while, I found it interesting to talk with them about what feelings are, and what they are really for.  I’d ask them and all my clients, “What are feelings for?”  Not surprisingly, most of them looked at me like I came from another planet!  It was like they didn’t even understand the question. 

I thought to myself, this lack of knowledge might make sense when you talk to the layperson, but what about those who were in the helping professions?  I’d have a doctor, psychologist, counselor, or social worker coming to see me in my office and I’d ask that same question, “What are feelings for?” I’d get the same look!  Almost none of them seemed to know what I was talking about or, they would strain to come up with an answer on the spot.  In my mind this is not a satisfactory situation.

Don’t you think that these professionals should have a clear understanding of what feelings are for?  These are the same folks that will diagnose others as being mentally ill, or maladjusted, and label them with some kind of disorder because they are feeling too sad, or too mad, or anxious or depressed!  Don’t you think that these professional s should have a clear understanding of what your feelings are for before they prescribe a medication to flatten out your emotions?  I do.

In this episode, I will break it down for everyone.  You will know exactly what feelings are for.  Then in the next episode, I will talk to you about how you can use this information by doing “1-2-3,” and as a result, start leading a much more satisfying, healthy, and happy life.  Keep checking back, and I’ll tell you all about it.

    Wow, talk about hitting the nail on the head!

    I know that I’ve done it many times and I see others do it all the time. It’s simple logic that if we have an issue with “X” we need to do something that deals with “X.” But instead we distract ourselves with any number of other things that have nothing to do with “X” and then we wonder why it doesn’t get better.

    This web site is an epiphany! Thank you!
