What are you holding onto, what have you been keeping alive, that you need to lay to rest and leave behind, in order to make progress?
Putting that old yuck – the unwanted and unhelpful experiences, sensations, responses – to rest.
How delightfully convenient that the Winter Solstice happened just a day after our MindSpa Weekly, and we were scheduled for returning to an existing Room to refine it.
Last year we did a MindSpa special on the Winter Solstice, exploring some aspects of it. This year we refined and broadened the journey:
- letting things die off, so we could be free from them and leave them behind;
- long nights and tending to the dark and shadows (for example, the reverse of a tapestry doesn’t sit in the light, yet without it the tapestry falls apart);
- Saturnalia and reversals;
- natural cycles;
30 minutes, some really good meditative content, and an absorbing, hypnotic experience to outgrow less-than-delightful things.
For the more hypnotic section, I borrowed heavily from the structure and imagery of my favourite topics: Other-Than-Conscious Communication and No Fault Psychology. Specifically, Dave Dobson’s Housecleaning.
It’s no secret I love Dave and Barb’s work on OTCC and NFP. It has shaped a lot of personal development, NLP, hypnosis, over many decades – and remains largely uncredited. I use it every day for myself, for clients, whatever I need.
