At Lotus Heart there are many OUTSIDE THE BOX( different) ideas.
That "alternative" to the main stream approach of drugs and surgery is a big part of the draw to use Lotus Heart's "alternative" style services.
Here are just a few WHACKY things you have heard from me:
"Damage or injury may not be the cause of your pain; it's your posture". WHAT?
"Pain is something to be thankful for because it is communication from your body". OH HECK NO!
"Energy Work". HUH? WHAT IS IT? OK???...
"You will be pain free when your body no longer needs to send the pain signal". But when is that going to be?!!!!
"It is the position not the condition of the body we are concerned with". HUH?
"I give you the tools to fix yourself". UGHHHHHHH!!!
The critter brain is the oldest part of your brain and it's job is to keep you safe. Fueled by fear it will fight,freeze, or flight when it is presented with a new idea.
This plays out as long conversations about the therapy, by placing personal restrictions/limitations on how or what you do, and even canceling the therapy prematurely "thinking" it just wont work for me.
Believe me, I understand...it turns out my critter brain is VERY LOUD!
It has been a daily tight rope of controlling what I do and how I "should" do it for years!
Ashley's Critter Brain:
Pain..."can't move that way"
Food allergies...."can't eat that"
Relationships..."maybe he doesnt like me"
My critter brain has tried desperately to keep me SAFE for years and in an attempt to keep me from changing or growing it clung to "MY STORY" like a safety blanket.
Gently stepping away from the conversation by suggesting the client try an exercise, the client then tunes into their body, their critter brain is quite as their confidence grows.
That is why you feel SO GOOD AT THE END OF A SESSION. YOU GOT TO FEEL IT....experience the change, the healing, the weird "alternative" ideas in your body so they don't feel so scary.
Want to explore your critter brain and learn to identify when it is sabotaging you?
Make an appointment and I will help you over come this life limiting critter!!!!
