Can there really be “too much” of a good thing? Can “abundance” sometimes be its own “problem”?
Its like what happened when you turned up your Halloween basket to see what you had collected after a night Trick o' Treating. So many choices…you needed a strategy because you could not eat them all at once…can you remember how you would choose?
If you are like most of us-deep unconscious filters, in alignment with your most powerful goals and emotions (the pleasure of chocolate?) guided your decision, without much conscious thought.
Research shows that having an abundance of choices available sometimes leads to “overload”. Too many choices can lead to indecision (which is a choice), poor decisions, impulsive (habituated/default) decisions, a willingness to be influenced (as we seek to end the cognitive dissonance/discomfort by choosing) and even fuels the modern day “FOMO” (fear of missing out)-which can drive us into patterns that are distracting and unproductive.
There are many examples to be found as the holidays approach-with so many things to available to us like food, drinks, activities, gifts, gatherings…all competing for our attention, time and energy…
“This is a GREAT PROBLEM to have”-is a nice reframe that reduces stress (which allows for better thinking and choosing). You might just try 3 deep breaths and repeat that to yourself a few times when you are faced with all those choices…
But life in our Western world is full of choices, everyday. The hypnotic arts help you get clarity about matters to you most, helps to resolve inner conflicts between choice option,s and propels you into a momentum of positive change, all while facilitating those shifts in a way that is easy, quick, automatic and permanent-just an “effortless” way of being.
