On this Martin Luther King Day of Service, I’d like to share my take on one of Dr. King’s lesser known speeches, “What is Your Life’s Blueprint”.
He gave this speech at junior high schools, high schools, and colleges in 1967. A popular passage from it is as follows:
“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”
You can watch 2-minutes of rare footage of Dr. King giving this speech over on YouTube.
Dr. King wanted to motivate the youth of his day to refrain from becoming pessimistic, urging them to move forward, to fight for their rights and for justice. In spite of difficulties, he wanted to encourage a focus on one’s goals in life. He did not want young people to think about impossibilities; rather he inspired them to focus on possibilities.
Possibilities for the future. I love that!
I strongly believe that we magnify what we place our attention upon. A particular joy of mine in working as a hypnotherapist is helping clients like you to focus on where they are going and removing attention from that which no longer serves a useful purpose.
It’s surprising how quickly that can be accomplished under the right circumstances.
A recent client of mine wrote the following over on Google about our work together:
“She used what felt like a guided meditation to get me to relax to then make suggestions to my subconscious in regards to my anxiety. Whatever she did took effect immediately and I left that appointment noticing that I no longer felt my tight chest. In the days to follow, my anxiety seemed to magically be gone and I couldn't believe that in one appointment something that was holding me back for weeks was no longer apparent in my present anymore.”
Hypnosis is well suited to get around the critical and often resistant conscious mind so that you can inform the subconscious mind of how you wish to feel and behave.
What do you want to say to your subconscious mind?
