Remember the first Shrek movie in 2001? Shrek tried to explain to Donkey that there is more to ogres than most people realize. He gave an example of an onion having layers.
I think that's a good analogy about life! We peel one layer thinking we cleared an issue and then we get into a similar situation later only to discover that we still have another layer to deal with. Why is this?
There are patterns and beliefs that cause us to have to undergo a "do over" on certain lessons. In order not to have to repeat lessons, we have to change the underlying thought or belief so it is no longer there waiting to be triggered when a similar event comes into play.
How do we change subconscious beliefs? By recognizing them and making a conscious effort to reprogram our minds with a new belief. That’s where affirmations and hypnosis come in handy.
