Archetypes according to Jung: better understand the unconscious mind

archetypes jung

Archetypes according to Jung: what are they?

Are there predetermined structures that guide our existence?

According to Carl Jung, a 20th century Swiss psychiatrist, these structures exist and influence the way we live our lives.

He called these structures « Archetypes, » natural inclinations that we are born with that make us think, feel and perceive the world in a special way.

Jung’s work on archetypes has influenced many fields of the humanities beyond psychology, notably in the field of literature and theater.

Archetypes are symbolic figures present in particular in mythology and which represent a set of qualities and patterns of thought and behavior.

In this article, you will see how the psyche works according to Jung and the 12 archetypes he identified.

You will also see how you can improve your life through knowing your main archetypes.

How to read people

The 3 dimensions of the psyche

In order to fully understand Jung’s concept of Archetypes, it is important to understand his conception of the psyche.

The psyche according to Jung is the whole personality of a human being, including his thoughts, feelings, emotions, and behaviors.

According to him, a person’s psyche can be divided into 3 parts:

Consciousness

Consciousness is made up of the thoughts, sensations, emotions and actions of which we are aware.

The field of our consciousness is directed by a mechanism called the ego.

It is our ego that determines what we can identify with and how we maintain that identity of ourselves.

The ego sort of decides what we’re going to focus on and bring to our consciousness.

The personal unconscious

Our consciousness is not able to process all the information that is in our environment. This is why the ego must select this information before bringing it to consciousness.

But there is another part of our psyche which is able to perceive things and events which remain outside our field of consciousness.

All those perceptions that do not pass the ego filter remain in what Jung calls the personal unconscious.

This personal unconscious is therefore composed of the individual experience of each and therefore varies according to the individuals.

But there is a deeper and more universal part of the psyche which is common to all human beings.

The collective unconscious

In the collective unconscious are the psychic structures and tendencies which are by nature universal.

It is in the collective unconscious that we will therefore find the archetypes which are structures of the psyche that we find in all human beings.

While studying the dreams of his patients, Jung realized that there were recurring symbols shared by different patients. These symbols are also found in the founding stories of various religions and in mythology.

He thus determined that these symbols are found in every person because they are part of what he called the collective unconscious.

And these common structures of the psyche manifest in the form of Archetypes.

Improve situationnal awereness

The 12 Jungian Archetypes

Jung identified 12 main archetypes to understand the fundamental motivations of the human being.

Each archetype represents different characteristics, values, and goals that lead to a better understanding of human nature.

The wise man

The archetype of the sage is in search of wisdom and knowledge. Its purpose is to understand the nature of existence by finding meaning in every event in life and approaching life as a series of lessons.

The sage has values ​​such as truth, spirituality, and freedom.

He is also called the Philosopher, the Mentor, the Scholar, etc …

Be your own advisor

The Innocent

Optimistic by nature, the archetype of the innocent is in search of happiness. His positive nature leads him to see what is good in everyone and everything.

For the Innocent, the world is a wonderful place where anything is possible.

The innocent is easy to impress and makes a special effort to please others.

It can be found under other names like: The Utopist, the Optimist or the Idealist

Stop being judgmental

The Explorer

The Explorer archetype enjoys discovering new places, new people and new experiences.

Freedom, novelty and personal space are of great importance to the Explorer.

Staying in one place for too long easily makes the Explorer anxious. On the contrary, the Explorer likes to travel and be in new places or circumstances.

We can also call him the Adventurer.

Find passion and purpose

The sovereign

The archetype of the Sovereign is the classical leader, happy to take responsibility for a group and to take center stage.

He is a natural leader who leads not out of a thirst to lead, but because he naturally has such qualities.

Stability and courage are qualities of this archetype who also have the ability to see things as a whole, with perspective.

He can sometimes be called the Boss or the Leader, and he can tend to dominate others.

Be a good leader

The creator

The Creator archetype particularly appreciates originality and will be proud to have done something new and different.

The Creator is blessed with an exceptional imagination and has the ability to transform things in a whole new way.

He can also be called the Artist or the Dreamer, and he sometimes gets so wrapped up in his imagination that doing things concretely becomes difficult.

Get the creativity booster

The Caregiver

The caregiver archetype is characterized by compassion, empathy and generosity.

The Caregiver particularly enjoys taking care of others at the risk of sometimes neglecting his needs.

The Caregiver wants to protect and nourish others. But he fears being exploited or taken for granted.

He is also known as the Altruist, or the Savior.

Be more compassionate

The magician

The Magician archetype has a very close connection with the universe. The Magician seeks to understand, channel and use the forces of the universe.

The Magician seeks to transform and grow to face the new challenges of life.

The Magician archetype according to Jung is often mysterious and lonely, and can be difficult for others to understand.

The Hero or Superhero

The Hero archetype seeks admiration and recognition.

He shows qualities of courage and vitality, and enjoys fighting for honor and power.

The hero likes to be in the spotlight and engages in the defense of the weakest.

How to rewrite your life story

The rebel

Free-spirited, the Rebel archetype doesn’t care what people think of him.

The Rebel does not support laws and authority. Rather, he trusts his personal feelings and likes to brave prohibitions that do not seem justified to him.

He has a tendency to be provocative and to reject the rules of social life.

He is also known as the Anarchist or the Outlaw.

Be more assertive

The lover

The archetype of the Lovers has to do with emotions, feelings and sensitivity.

The Lover is devoted and seeks to feel this love permanently. This archetype is drawn to beauty, romantic engagement, and connection to others.

He fears rejection and loneliness, and sometimes tries too hard to please others.

Love your imperfect partner

The Jester or the Humorist

The Jester archetype never takes anything seriously. Its goal is to enjoy life and every moment.

He does not hide behind a mask and does not hesitate to reveal his shadow areas. Sometimes he also has the ability to pull others out of their shell by making them feel comfortable (sometimes to his advantage).

The Goblin loves to laugh and knows how to be happy whatever the situation.

Never taking anything seriously, he can be lazy at times and lack commitment.

How to be funny

The Realist

The archetype of the Realist grows in what he sees. He appreciates equality and is particularly social.

The Realist can easily fit into a group and don’t like to be left out.

He is also called The good Guy.

What is the point of knowing the archetypes of Jung?

By reading the descriptions of the various archetypes above, you may have been able to identify with one or more of these archetypes.

In general, we consider that we have 3 main archetypes with which we will work most of the time.

When you become aware of your main archetypes, you will also be able to understand how they are manifested in your life.

And you will also see in which situations one or the other archetype is best suited.

If you have the archetype of the Sovereign in you, for example, it can be a good thing when you are in a position to make decisions and lead a group to work.

But in society, this archetype can easily become overwhelming while the Realist archetype will surely be more welcomed.

Then, knowing your jungian archetypes also allows you to distance yourself from yourself.

Instead of identifying with a particular Archetype, you step back realizing that these are structures present in the collective unconscious.

In conclusion

Jung identified 3 dimensions of the Psychea: consciousness, the personal unconscious, and the collective unconscious.

Archetypes are structures present in the collective unconscious and which are found across different civilizations in religions and mythology.

These 12 archetypes manifest in each to different degrees and at different times.

Becoming aware of your main archetypes allows you to distance yourself from yourself and gives you the choice to express a different archetype depending on the situation.

How to become an actor of your life: 5 keys inspired by the profession of actor

actor in your life

You can look at your life as a spectator and endure it, or approach it as an actor in your life and take it in hand.

Hypnosis and acting have some unexpected things in common. However, these two disciplines modify the state of consciousness and make it possible to overcome unconscious limits.

Who has never seen or heard of an actor or actress who transforms on stage. The shy person stays behind the scenes and is a charismatic person who takes you on a journey through the story of their character.

To become an actor in your life, you must master a few fundamental levers.

In this article, I am going to share with you 5 keys that are used by professional actors and which can serve you to be an actor in your life.

Control your emotions and your level of reactivity

Actors are often seen as impulsive people dominated by their emotions and their need for recognition. But this is to ignore the qualities that the great actors have developed in the course of their work.

To be an actor in your life, it is important to control your emotions.

This means that you have to be able to feel emotions strongly when you want to, but also to detach yourself from certain emotions when necessary.

Often, the way we experience emotions depends on our presence and our connection to others.

This is another thing that can be learned through acting: by being present to the situation and being strongly connected to your partner, emotions are much stronger.

There is a reason for this: we are what we call in hypnosis « associated ». That is to say that we live things without any hindsight while feeling everything 100%.

On the contrary, to lower a negative emotion, you have to know how to dissociate yourself and take a step back.

Here is a simple exercise that will help you become aware of this mechanism:

Make yourself comfortable with your eyes closed.

And start by feeling all the sensations of the body: breathing, clothes on the skin, the temperature of the room, etc …

Then, keeping your eyes closed, recap the objects around you. What is in front of you, but also on the sides and behind you. As if you can see all around you 360 °.

And finally, listen to the sounds around you, determining their direction of origin.

By doing this, you are amplifying your ability to associate.

Now imagine that you are looking at your body from behind, or from one side. You see this body a few feet away from you.

And you may even start to imagine that you are moving further away, as if you are looking at your body and the room from a security camera or satellite.

By doing this, you are working on your ability to dissociate yourself.

You can do the same process, starting with a memory, for example, to see how you can deal with your emotions.

Become an actor in your life by mastering your physiology and body language

When an actor has to start a strong scene, he must start the scene already being in a very strong emotional state. And for that, he needs what is called emotional preparation.

One of the keys to this emotional preparation will be to act on your physiology.

It is one of the simplest and most effective things. Because acting on his physiology only takes a few seconds.

If you punch the air and invest your whole body in it, you will quickly feel that you are entering a state of combativeness.

If you settle down in a comfortable chair, with your hands crossed behind your head, your feet resting on a stool, and adopting calm and regular breathing, you will quickly notice that a state of relaxation begins to set in.

Certain postures called power postures are known to generate a state of power, and this is scientifically proven by analyzing the hormones circulating in the body.

You can use cardiac coherence breathing, for example, to generate a state of calm and focus.

Body Scan relaxation technique

Master your inner monologue to become an actor in your life

Another thing actors do to recreate life in a movie scene or a play is to work on their inner monologue.

In a movie, there is what the character says, and what the character thinks.

And the actor can’t just say the character’s words, he has to think what the character thinks too.

To be an actor in your life, you too can master your inner monologue and change the way you think.

Certain words in particular have powerful effects on your life experience. Words like « Never » or « Always », « Everyone » or « Nobody », or certain expressions like « I’m fed up » …

It suffices to repeat a phrase like « I’m fed up, it’s always the same » in a frustrated tone of voice to yourself to generate frustration.

What are the words or expressions you use most often? And what emotions do they generate?

Self Talk Coach

Have a clear goal to be an actor in your life

Another element that is essential for actors to interpret a scene is the objective.

Having a clear, well-defined goal allows you to have something to focus on.

It directs concentration towards what you want to get out of a situation.

For actors, there are generally 2 kinds of lenses: the super-lens and the stage lens.

The super goal is what the character wants throughout the play.

The scene lens is exactly what it seeks to achieve in a particular scene.

For an actor in his life, that could correspond to a long-term goal and a short-term goal.

If my goal is to create a blog that attracts over 50,000 readers per month (long term goal), my short term goal is to write an article that brings you maximum value.

Reach your goal

Being an actor in your life is above all acting!

The mistake of most beginning actors is to focus on emotions rather than actions.

Of course, controlling your emotions is important, but what makes a scene interesting are the actions of the character.

« Complaining » is an action.

« Blaming » or « Blaming » is an action.

« To complain » is an action, etc …

An actor can use these actions to portray an unfriendly and depressed character.

But an actor in his life will choose more inspiring actions.

You can use any of the like « Convince », « Inspire », « Encourage », « Make Dream » to achieve your goal.

What actions do you use most often? And what more effective actions could you develop?

Turn knowledge into action

In conclusion

The profession of an actor consists in recreating the life of a character with all its psychological complexity during a given moment.

To do this, the actors have developed many tools that can be used by everyone to be an actor in their life.

Some allow you to act on emotions, others on actions.

All these tools finally make it possible to no longer endure life as a spectator, but to direct it as an actor in one’s life.

Strengthening Your Mind: 13 Strategies To Succeed

strengthening your mind

Strengthening one’s mind is essential for moving forward in life and overcoming the challenges that present themselves to us.

Here are 13 things to do to strengthen your mind and generate more happiness and abundance in your life.

Replace self-pity with gratitude

When Jack’s legs were broken in an accident, his mother was devastated. She couldn’t help but mull over this « terrible accident ». And although the doctors predicted that Jack could walk normally, his mother couldn’t help the terrible life he was going to have if he couldn’t walk normally.

Jack was overcome with despair and his mother ended up taking him to a therapist.

Instead of complaining about him like his mother did, he started joking about this crazy experience and led him to write a funny story called « How to Beat a School Bus ».

Above all, the therapist encouraged his mother to feel gratitude that his son was still alive rather than feeling sorry for himself.

In a few weeks, Jack found a smile and fully recovered the use of his legs.

Pain and grief are part of life, but ruminating on feeling sorry for yourself can only make matters worse.

Take a few moments each day to focus on what is going well, how lucky you are, and how much gratitude you may have.

A study has shown that people who experience gratitude regularly have a stronger immune system, sleep better, and have a better quality of life.

Protect your power by forgiving others.

Oprah Winfrey was born into a poor black-American family in the United States. And his childhood was particularly difficult with sexual abuse and pregnancy at 14 years of age.

Through hard work and determination, she finally found a job as a television presenter. Until his dismissal …

But instead of feeling resentful for her boss, she directed all of her energy into creating her own show.

Her career has made her the highest paid presenter and one of the richest women in the world.

And throughout her career, she has invested herself in defending the less fortunate and inspiring others to realize their potential.

Choosing forgiveness improves pain tolerance, reduces stress and helps you live longer.

Start by identifying the words that make you pass for a victim.

Stop talking about what you are forced to do, or what others are telling you to do. Instead, think in terms of what you choose to do and take responsibility for how you spend your time and energy.

Embrace change rather than running away from it

Whatever changes you want to make in your life, it’s easy to make excuses and avoid them.

But finding excuses limits your potential and prevents you from fully realizing your life.

The next time you want to make a personal change, try these 5 steps:

Create a 30-day goal: change is not going to happen overnight so allow yourself some time.
Establish concrete, daily behavioral changes to move toward this goal.
Anticipate obstacles and plan how to overcome them.
Report to your friends or family on your progress.
Measure your progress by recording your successes every day.

To inspire you even more, imagine the person you want to be. Every change you make and every goal you reach brings you closer to that person.

Focus on the things you can control.

It is impossible to control everything, and you will exhaust yourself trying to do it.

Weather, traffic, illness, etc. are things you can anticipate but not control. However, you can control how you respond to it.

Start by accepting the things you can’t act on.

This will leave you with the energy to act where you can.

Be comfortable with displeasing others.

Certain sects or communities do not allow its members to live their lives outside the community while maintaining contact with their families who remain inside.

Those who want their independence must therefore cut ties with their family and friends who remain in the community.

Risking rejection and criticism from others is painful, but it is sometimes the only way to do the things one wants to achieve and to live in accordance with one’s values ​​and aspirations.

To strengthen your mind, it is important to take the risk of being criticized and to resist the tendency to make decisions based on what will appeal to others.

Learn to take calculated risks

Do you hold back on following your dreams because of what could go wrong?

Do you have difficulty making important decisions in your life?

Do you find it difficult to take risks?

So it is possible that your emotions (and especially fear) interfere with your ability to make decisions.

Our emotions are not always aligned with real risk.

For example, the chances of dying from a car accident are much higher than those of having a plane crash. And yet people take the car every day and start to panic as soon as they arrive at the airport.

To keep an eye on your emotions and make better choices:

  • Analyze the pros and cons of a risk to take
  • Imagine the worst that could happen if you take that risk
  • Make a plan of what you would do if you find yourself in the worst situation
  • Ask yourself how much this decision will count in 5 years

Make peace with your past

Certain experiences from your past can come back to haunt you regularly. But the more time and energy you give them, the more you strengthen the related neural circuits.

If you lose your energy brooding over the past, you will inevitably lack energy for your future.

Start by recognizing the emotional price you pay, forgive the people who hurt you, and change the behaviors that keep you going in the past.

Seeking professional help is always a good investment if you have deep wounds.

Avoid making the same mistakes over and over

All successful entrepreneurs and people know that it is their mistakes that have given them their greatest lessons.

When something goes wrong, it can be tempting to feel sorry for yourself, get discouraged, or give in to anger.

But to strengthen your mind, it is better to ask yourself the following two questions:

How could I have done better?

What will I do differently next time?

Collaborate with others rather than envy their success

While working at the Hershey Chocolate Factory, H.B. Reese started his own candy company in the same town.

Rather than being wary and trying to stop Reese from starting his own business, Milton Hershey supported him by helping him make his mink out of peanut butter candies.

Their collaboration lasted their whole life and the two companies finally merged.

Resentment and envy are common traits, but with the right frame of mind, you can build on the success and power of others rather than succumbing to envy.

The next time you envy someone, see how you can work with them and celebrate their accomplishments.

Be tenacious and accept your failures

Tenacity is the secret to success, much more than talent or luck.

To realize your potential, focus on learning and improving with compassion rather than trying to be the best.

A study published in 2012 showed that students who were guided in an exercise of self-compassion and self-improvement studied 25% longer and obtained a better score than students who had boosted their self-esteem.

Strengthen Your Mind: Embrace Loneliness

With social networks and the multiple stimuli available with a smartphone, it is becoming easier to distract yourself.

But to strengthen your mind, it is important to take time in solitude to regenerate, be inspired, and reflect.

Take an hour regularly to reflect on your life goals and whether you are on the right track.

Listen to your feelings and identify the negative emotions that need to be addressed.

Keeping a diary or meditating during this hour can be a great tool to clear the mental fog and see the future clearly.

Focus on giving rather than receiving

When something bad happens to you, you may be told that « you deserve better than that ».

And while it may be pleasant to hear, the more you believe in this lie that the world owes you anything, the more miserable you will be when the reality is not up to your expectations.

The world owes you nothing, and you will always be miserable if you only think about what you can receive.

Focus on what you can bring and you will be much happier.

Recognize that results take time

Whatever goal you have, it will always take time to achieve it. And often much more than you thought.

If it seems that the success of others happened overnight, it is because you have not been behind the scenes to observe the many failures and refusals as well as the hours of work spent.

The Beatles spent thousands of hours rehearsing anonymously or playing in bars before achieving the worldwide success we know.

The Amazon company was not profitable for 7 years before being the first global company today.

So whatever your goal, be determined to practice regularly without expecting immediate results.

Conclusion

To strengthen your mind, it is important to put in place strategies that work and that are used by successful people.

Again, change does not happen overnight and you can decide on a first strategy to put in place to start this process.

Recognize your negative emotions and let them go to replace them with more positive ones.

Be determined and stubborn to develop a strong mind.

How To Stop Negative Thinking

negative thinking

Negative thinking is very common.

According to the  Natural Science Fondation, we usually have between 12,000 to 60,000 thought a day. And 95% of these thought are repetitive, and 80% are negatives.

If you fall into these 80% of negative repetitive thinking, that means you don’t have much thoughts left for problem solving, creative thinking or personnal enjoyment.

Actors are using thinking as a way to get into character. When you get to the point where you think the thoughts of your character, you’ll identify almost completely to the person you’re playing.

Here are 5 ways to change your negative thinking and use your thinking skills to improve your work and your life.

Write it and change it

Negative thinking is stronger when it’s unnoticed. If you identify yourself to your negative thoughts, it will be way more difficult to get rid of them.

The first step is to acknowledge those thoughts. And the best way to do that is to write them down.

You just need a piece of paper and a pen.

Divide your pen in two columns :

In column one, you will write your negative thoughts.

On column two, you will find a better and more positive thought to replace it.

You can do all column one at first, or alternate between column one and two. It’s up to you to find what works best for you.

Meditation : Learn to Quiet Your Mind

Meditation is a great way to get rid of negative thinking.

By learning meditation, you will learn to let go of all your thoughts. You will step back and watch your thoughts as if they were just clouds in the sky.

There are different types of meditation. However, if you want to get rid of negative thinking, you should try some kind of mindfulness meditation.

You can do sitting meditation or walking meditation.

If you’re a beginner, you’ll want to focus on your breathing.

Walking meditation.

Breath in on one step, and breath out on the other step.

Focus on the feeling of the sole of your feet. Use your thinking to help yourself focus : « I breath in, I breath out ».

Sitting meditation.

Sitting meditation is slightly more difficult as there’s nothing to do.

Sit on a chair or with your legs crossed. Keep your back straight as if your head is  suspended to the sky.

Focus on your breathing by saying : « Breathing in, I know that I’m breathing in. Breathing out, I know that I’m breathing out.  »

You can also count your breath from 1 to 10.

Simply think : « Breathing in, 1. Breathing out, 1. Breathing in, 2. Breathing out, 2. Breathing in, 3. Breathing out, 3… »

Do that until 10 then start again. You might find that you can’t go up to 10 because your mind is so wild that you can’t remember your count.

When it happens, just start again at 1.

With regular practice, you’ll find it easier and easier.

 

Practice Cardiac Coherence To Get Rid of Negative Thinking

Cardiac coherence is a breathing method that allows your heart to beat on a calm, regular, and effective rhythm.

It has many benefits on the hormonal and nervous system.

The basic practice is very simple. It is recommended to practice 3 times a day, during 5 minutes each time.

Just sit or lie down comfortably.

Breath in during 5 seconds. And Breath out during 5 seconds.

Repeat this cycle for 5 minutes.

That’s it.

Change Your Focus And Move Away From Negative Thinking

When you have a lot of negative thinking, it can be useful to shift your focus to something very simple.

It gets you distracted from your negative thoughts.

You can observe the shape of an object in front of you, or listen to all the sounds that you can hear.

You can count all the different sounds that you can hear.

Or choose a color and count all the objects of that same color around you.

You will find that choosing a color will help you easily all the objects with the same color. It’s almost as if they were lightened up.

That’s because of the instruction you gave to your subconscious mind. It has a system to filter the objects you’ve chosen to see more.

The same system operates based on your everyday thoughts. So if you choose to focus on the solutions, it will highlight the solutions that are in your environment.

 

Eat Good Food

What you eat will influence your physiology. And it will influence your thinking.

Eating good and healthy food will give you more energy to produce more dynamic thoughts.

Be aware the sugar will quickly give you a ride on the roller coaster of thoughts.

When the sugar enters your blood, your mind will be quicker. You’ll feel excited and you’ll have difficulties focusing.

When your body will get rid of this excessive sugar, you’ll feel tired and powerless. Possibly depressed.

Use Self Hypnosis To Change Your Negative Thinking

Self-hypnosis is a powerful tool when it comes to getting rid of negative thinking.

With the help of self hypnosis, you can change the way you react to a negative feeling or something that happens to you.

This hypnosis session is designed to teach you the skills required to get rid of negative thinking.

By guiding you into a state of hypnotic trance, this session allows you to learn at a deeper level.

Prepare your autosuggestion phrase, and put yourself in a quiet place. Repeat your autosuggestion 5 times in your head, then close your eyes and concentrate on your breath.

Take great breaths by swelling your stomach, hold your breath a few seconds, then breathe out on your stomach.

Everything has to be fluid, and you have to really focus your mind on your feelings as you breathe. Let your thoughts without giving them importance, and always come back to your breath and your belly.

When you feel that you are well relaxed and that the meeting is coming to an end (about fifteen minutes or more if needed), go back gradually and open your eyes.

Third Eye Technique

Starting always the same way, close your eyes, relax and think about your
autosuggestion.

Take 10 great inspirations imagining that light fills your lungs. At expiration, expel the negative energies. Keep breathing, and focus your attention on the middle of your forehead. Imagine your third eye and let your intuition appear.

Maybe you will see pictures, or you will hear messages. Or you may not see anything at all. Whatever, let it come without reflect.

Then, when you feel it, end the session fluidly by returning to your physical sensations.

Solar plexus technique

Put yourself in a comfortable position, and put your hand on your solar plexus. It’s the center of self-confidence, and it is generally attributed the yellow color, as the sun.

Close your eyes, and repeat your autosuggestion phrase several times. Breathe calmly and deeply, paying attention to your plexus.

Now, start to imagine a very bright yellow energy bubble. She grows up around your plexus, and radiates a nice, positive energy.

Watch her grow up and slowly surround your body. Feel the sensations of warmth and comfort that it brings you.

Stay in your yellow bubble for several minutes and enjoy this deep well-being. When you will be ready, and filled with confidence in yourself and in your power of self-suggestion, take a great inspiration and come back to your body.

Open your eyes and pay attention to your sensations.

Counting Technique

Finally, if you have a little trouble visualizing mentally, you can also use a
counting of numbers. Sit down and think about your autosuggestion.

Then, stare a specific point in front of you. Perform 3 breaths with the belly, and at the third inspiration, hold your breath a few seconds.

Close your eyes, and exhale deeply and calmly. Then do a count of 25 to 1 (you can hear thenumbers, or see them scroll).

Once arrived at 1, mentally repeat your autosuggestion dozens of times, to saturate your mind.

Then go back to the real world counting this time from 1 to 3. At number 3, you will open your eyes and feel soothed.

To summarize

These different techniques of self-hypnosis will help you to master your compulsions food.

You can learn them alone, or go see a hypnotherapist who advise. It is also possible to listen to videos or recordings that will induce a form of hypnosis.

However, the success of these techniques is based on a very regular practice and a calm atmosphere. If you keep your phone on and that you only practice it once, the results will not be there.

But if you are really motivated and want to take your problems in hand, self-hypnosis is a excellent technique that will give you confidence in yourself and your personal power.

Take Better Decisions With Old School Philosophy

When it comes to choosing between an apple and a chocolate bar, what makes you make the right decision?

The answer will probably surprise you …

It’s philosophy!

Well, maybe I’m exaggerating a bit, but not that much.

In fact, researchers have shown that abstract thinking makes a better decision than more concrete thinking.

They showed that people wishing to lose weight more easily choose an apple rather than a chocolate bar after having an abstract reflection (ex: Why being healthy is important?).

A more concrete reflection of the type: what should I do to be in good health, does not allow the same results.

In the same way, children were tested.

Their goal: to stay 15 minutes alone in front of a Marshmallow without touching it.

Their reward: a second Marshmallow.

The children who resisted the temptation best had a rather abstract reflection of the type: it looks like a cloud.

The children who resisted it the least had a more emotional reflection: this marshmallow looks delicious.

The amazing thing is thatby practicing abstract thinking, you make better decisions unconsciously. We do not struggle anymore internally.

What can we conclude from these studies?

If you have trouble making the right decisions, or feel that you often make the wrong choices, do more philo!

Take a moment each day to think about somethings very abstract :

What is fear? (Rather than managing my anxieties)

Why do human beings seek connection to others? (Rather than how can I overcome my fear of speaking in public)

Why being healthy makes you happier? (Rather than lose 10 kilos)

What is success? What is happiness ?

It may be time to take out your old philosophy textbooks and think about some abstract questions!

Do not think too much anyway …

On this, have a nice day!

Learn A Text by Heart Easily : 4 Methods + 2 Tips

In this article, you will find 4 methods + 2 tips for learning a text by heart easily.

Learning a text by heart can be scary when you start to become an actor. Yet this is not the hardest to become an actor. Everyone has his way of doing things, the main thing is that it comes back!

 

These hypnosis downloads will also help you remember what you learn : Learning Help Hypnosis Downloads

How to learn a text by heart: The written method

Rewrite your text by hand while saying the text at the same time as you write it

This method is not essential to learn a text by heart but it is effective. This forces you to take the time to focus on each word by bringing into play different parts of the brain (speech, writing, reading). Writing also slows down the thought process and allows the imagination to make associations of ideas on each word.

Preferably use a blue pen. According to some studies, the blue color favors memorization.

How to learn a text by heart: The method of key ideas

Divide the text into key ideas and remember the sequence of these ideas. Use striking images for these ideas

When you have to learn a text by heart, it is better to divide it into small paragraphs that correspond to a key idea. It’s easier to learn these key ideas to remember different parts of the text. You can also divide each paragraph into key ideas.

Memory works with the imagination. By using strong and striking images for the key ideas of the text, you will remember it more easily.

Look for words in the text that immediately conjure up an image for you and use them to memorize the text. Some words have strong evocative power. They immediately put pictures in the head. Both use it as points of support to retain the text.

Represent yourself in space.
If the text evokes places or people, represent them in space.

For example, if I tell you about the Eiffel Tower, you have an idea of ​​where it is in relation to you. This is also the case if I tell you about your mother. Even if its location in relation to you is inaccurate or even false, you have an idea. Besides, that’s the surprise when you think that one person is in one place and you see another.

This must be valid for your character as well. To learn a text by heart, locate each object, place, and person in the space around you.

How to learn a text by heart: the voice method

Learn line by line aloud, without intonation

When we put the intonation in learning a text, we have the impression to retain it more easily. But as soon as one changes the intentions and recites them in another context, the text escapes from the memory. It is better to learn your text without intonation aloud to draw the lips to pronounce it. Then it’s easier to put different intentions behind.

Read the first line aloud (without intonation), then hide and recite it. Then read the first and the second, then hide them and recite. Then read from beginning to third, then hide and recite, and so on until the end. You can do that for each paragraph, then try again for the entire text.

Use muscle memory

Say the text as quickly as possible and pay attention to the joint to train the muscles of the mouth. After a certain number of repetitions, you will realize that it is your mouth that says the words without you thinking about it, a little as if your muscles acted reflexively.

This is the safest way to learn a text by heart easily. It requires discipline and repetition but it allows to know the text on the lips.

How to learn a text by heart: the audio method

Save the text and listen to it

Hearing a text involves a completely different process than reading it. Some people who are more auditory can learn a text by heart more easily when they hear it than when they read it. If this is your case, save yourself and then loop your text!

At first, listen carefully to the text to focus your memory and your imagination on it. Then you can let it loop while you do something else.

You can use free Audacity software on eg computer or dictaphone.

 

2 Tip to learn a text by heart:

Put a baroque musical background

Research has shown that Baroque music helps to memorize and learn a text by heart more easily. You can use baroque music in the background to stimulate the right brain linked to the imagination. To test if you like baroque music!

Move, walk

You can learn a text by heart while sitting and forget it as soon as you start moving. Moving brings oxygen to the brain and forces one to be more focused on learning the text.

Of course, you can combine these methods to learn a text by heart even more easily.

How to check that you know your text by heart:
Try to recite it by doing physical activity (juggling, storage, sport …)
To make sure you know your text, try something else that requires your attention and forces you to move while you recite it. For example by doing the dishes, juggling, drawing, etc …

Save only your partner’s text, leaving blank for you
Recite your text using a dictaphone to give you the answer. You will be able to verify that you know your text but also that you know how to say it at the right moment.

To be really sure of knowing it and being able to recite it naturally, do it while you’re doing a physical activity.

Overcome Shyness With Hypnosis (5 Tips)

Hypnosis provides an inner security that allows you to overcome shyness

Have you ever been frustrated to see people around you enjoying themselves, lauhging and talking easily with each other when you feel completely out of it ?

Anyone can be affected by shyness and social anxiety. It makes social occasions difficult and it makes you feel awkward, lost and inadequate.

Would you like a magic wand to transform your shyness into confidence and ease ?

What is social anxiety and shyness ?

Social anxiety quite common, more than many people realize. People who look very at ease and confident can be shaking inside. Sometimes, they just hide it better.  Are all those people ‘just pretending’? Is the solution to social anxiety just to get better at pretending to be at ease?

Overcome shyness by putting a social act

The ‘fake it till you make it’ approach can bequite effective. Acting as if you were confident and relaxed can help you in social work situations. If you do what someone you know who is socially skilful does, you will find that you get better too.

Some people just improve their act  to carry them into feeling comfortable in company. Others will find there’s still be some discomfort and anxiety, and are not able to enjoy their social experiment. This comes from behaving differently, but still feeling odd inside.

Why some people can’t overcome shyness

If you want to be relaxed and confident with other people in different situations, you need to feel that everyone else is just like you. You have the same rights and the same value as everyone else. And you have the right  to speak and be heard and to enjoy yourself just as anyone.

If you regularly feel odd, or you believe that no one likes you or is interested in you, something might be missing.

Most people overcome shyness as they grow up into confident adults. But the emotions you experienced when you were young can ‘condition’ effect  you to respond with anxiety instead of confidence and joy to social situations. With repetition, it becomes automatic and you start to believe that it is part of who you are.

But it can change.

You can overcome shyness since it’s about How and not Who

You respond to social situations with shyness because of what you have learned to do not because of ‘who you are. It feels like it’s who you are because you do it regularly. You have learned it and practised it until it became second nature. It is a learned and practised behavior. And even if it can feel hard to change it, you can actually update these patterns in your brain

5 tips to help you Overcome Shyness.

1) Focus on others

Shyness maakes you absorbed in yourself. Shy people believe they have ‘nothing to say’, no amazing stories to tell and think they are uninteresting. But think about this:

People will love you if they feel you’re interested in them. You don’t have to suddenly think you’re great to overcome shynes You can just focus on others and make them feel interesting.


 

Ask questions and cultivate genuine curiosity. If you are at a party with strangers, try to connect how everyone knows each other. You can ask questions such as: « How do you know Kathy? » (if Kathy is throwing the party J) or: « I live next door. Are you one of Kathy’s tennis friends? » This:

  • Gives you something to talk about.
  • Gives other people a chance to talk about themselves (for which they will love you).
  • Takes your attention off yourself.

Until shyness fades more completely, the next tip will also help you out.

2) Prepare properly

Once shyness has gone you won’t need to do this; but whilst you still feel shy, practice preparing topics of conversation. If you have an idea of the type of people that are going to be at a gathering, then do a little homework. If many of them are sailing enthusiasts, for instance: Google the local sailing club, find out local sailing routes, prepare a few questions to ask about sailing.

If you feel shy at work, look out for interesting news items over the weekend and bring them into conversation on Monday.

Get into the habit of remembering what people have told you and referring back to it as future conversation starters: « Hey John, you know you were saying you wanted to see that film? Well I saw last night that it’s now playing at The Nomoorshyness Cinema! » or: « Jane, you were telling me that your daughter loves the circus; apparently there is a circus coming to town next week… »

But overcoming shyness isn’t just about talking more.

3) Send the right signals

Shy people are often misdiagnosed as unfriendly, aloof, or ‘stuck up’. Shyness can make us look unapproachable.

Research has found that we find people who smile and look directly at us more attractive (1). And people are 86% more likely to strike up conversations with strangers in the street if they are smiling.

Another benefit is that smiling even when you don’t feel like it actually makes you feel better – which can lead to real smiling. 🙂

An important point here: If you smile at someone and they don’t smile back, that is not your problem. We can’t make anyone accept our friendliness any more that we can make someone like us through sheer force.

4) Focus on putting other people at their ease

Working as a hypnotherapist I’ve seen so many clients who suffered from arachnophobia – fear of spiders. The trouble was, I had a fear of spiders myself! But rather than working on myself directly, I found that working to lift otherpeople’s fear magically lifted my own.

The point here is that by focusing on putting other people at their ease, you’ll find that you feel much more comfortable. Notice who seems a little more diffident or anxious and work to help them feel more relaxed.

5) Learn to manage anxiety

Shyness is really a type of social anxiety. Manage your anxiety by:

  • Making your out-breath longer than your in-breath. Extending the out-breath begins to relax body and mind very quickly. Once you feel more relaxed, you instantly feel more sociable.
  • Rehearse being confident. Mentally rehearsing being more outgoing and relaxed has amazing results. Lie down somewhere comfortable, focus on breathing deeply and slowly, and imagine watching yourself in the upcoming social situation looking relaxed, comfortable, and even talkative. You’ll be amazed how this ‘self-hypnotic’ preparation will affect the way you actually feel when you get there.

7 Days To Stop Negative Thinking

If there is one thing that can prevent us from becoming an actor, it is our mind. Our negative thoughts can block us and make us see life in black. How to get rid of those thoughts that prevent us from moving forward and that we have been dragging on for years?

Here is an exercise that will allow you to reprogram your brain to finally focus on what you want. I discovered this exercise 3 weeks ago, and it is effective.
Here’s how it works:

1. The first step to stop negative thinking is to identify the thoughts that you need to change. For example, perhaps you often catch your inner voice telling you « I never have castings ».

2. Now that you have identified negative thinking, you must write an affirmation that is directly opposite. For example :

« I now have 5 professional castings a week ».

Note that it is a positive affirmation that is written in the present tense.

This technique is called in English Seventy-By-Seven, Seventy-Seven, because the next step is to write this affirmation positive 7O times a day for 7 days in a row. I know, that’s a lot but that’s also why it’s effective.

If you arrive at day 3 and you forget to do it on day 4, you will have to return to day 1.

There is a precise way to write this statement to make sure it is effective.

Whenever you write your positive affirmation, you must write your immediate mental response and move on to the next statement. If you do not have a mental answer, just write « no answer ».

It’s time to be honest with yourself and really identify what’s blocking you.

Here’s an example of what it could do with the previous example:

DAY 1

(1) I now have 5 castings a week – No, I never have, this technique is nil.

(2) I now have 5 castings a week – Without an agent, it’s impossible.

(3) I now have 5 castings a week – if only it were possible.

(4) I now have 5 castings a week – I do not even know when I’ll have time to pass them.

…….

(70) I now have 5 castings a week – I will do everything to make it happen.

The key to this technique is to always be focused on positive affirmation. At first, we tend to get distracted easily and think of something else. we must make some effort to bring our thoughts back to the affirmation we are writing. When you start, you will probably feel that you are wasting your time, and your negative mind will tend to judge the technique.

But little by little, as you continue, your negative spirit will begin to weaken. You will also discover other negative thoughts that block you deeper and that you may not have identified.

This technique is effective because it allows you to focus on what you want and stop negative thinking.

And as we become what we think most often, your positive affirmation becomes more and more true. At the same time, it allows you to be honest with yourself and express what you really think.

Try and you will see the results!
