To Be in Control–or Not!

I automatically try to control as much as I possibly can. It’s a habit. It makes me feel like I am in charge of things–whether I am or not. Do you do this too?

Right now, I am noticing more problems than usual about this.

I brought my computer out to my beautiful, quiet patio to enjoy being outside. However, the vine that shades my space is dropping flower petals on my computer keyboard and my head. The bees love the flower petals and are plentiful. Sometimes they get too close for comfort. One just landed on my keyboard.

I keep hearing sirens. (There is a fire station and a hospital emergency room close by.) And now the neighbor’s dog just started to bark.

All this reminds me that I am definitely not in charge.

It’s a good lesson. I can either fight what is happening or relax and keep focused on my intention, to complete this note for you.

When you use the tools I offer in this book, staying focused on your intention, instead of trying to make things work the way you think they should, will serve you best.

Sometimes I use the sentences with the trigger, ‘this belief that I am in control.” You might try it and notice what happens.

The Power of 3 Sentences

Most people are awed when they first experience the power of the 3 Logosynthesis sentences.

My husband and I recently presented an introduction to this method to a group of about 30 professional psychotherapists and coaches.

When they asked to see a demonstration one experienced therapist volunteered to see if she could relieve her anxiety about a presentation she was making later in the day.

After a few questions it became clear that her feeling of anxiety was triggered by a picture she had imagined of people ignoring and ridiculing her. We used that image as the focus of the sentences.

After repeating the first sentence, retrieving her energy from this image, energy started moving through her body and she began to shake. This is a fairly common reaction so nobody seemed very startled by it. What did startle them was how quickly the energy started to move.

When she returned the energy she had acquired from others with the second sentence, she began to calm her own breathing,

By the time she had repeated the third sentence, retrieving her reactions to this imagined image of being ignored and ridiculed when she spoke, she was relaxed and smiling.

The participants were excited and wondered if the change was real. Later in the day they found out when she delivered a wonderful presentation without any hint of anxiety. She was thrilled and so were we. So were all the people who observed the process and wanted to learn more about it.

Do try it for yourself. The book is readily available in ebook, print and audio formats. Get your copy now and start right away.

Why Can’t I Just Let Go?

Do you keep reliving bad experiences and wish you could just stop? Or maybe other people are sick of hearing your stories of how mean your (ex) best friend was to you or how your boss yells at you.

Sometimes those memories come up at the most inopportune times and even stop you from going places you used to enjoy.

There are lots of reasons you hold on to things like that. The most important one is that a part of your brain is built to protect you from repeating disasters. Lots of things in your everyday life trigger reminders of past disasters to keep you alert to the faintest possibility of having them happen again.

Another reason is that you are always trying to complete things and many of these incidents are incomplete. You never got to say how angry you were. You were never comforted. Your boss never apologized.

A part of you holds on to the belief or fantasy that you need to remember those incidents in order to complete them.

Now you can actually let go of these memories with 3 simple sentences. Get your copy of this book and learn how now.
