Do you find yourself looking back at past? Do you use past experiences and grudges to justify your actions? If you answered yes, then you are stuck in a vicious cycle of your own making. By looking back at those memories, you are doing nothing but limiting yourself and your potential.

All of that energy you are using up is going to waste because you are allowing grudges and past traumas to dictate your perspective.

It hurts, but what you do with that hurt is more important than the emotional trauma you experienced. So how can you let go of the past and move on?

The first thing you need to learn is that you cannot blame other people for holding you back. Just because they wronged you in the past does not mean they have any influence on your future. Are you going to wait your whole life for an apology that is never going to come? They might never acknowledge their actions and that’s ok.

The biggest problem with blaming others is that it takes away all of the power from you. All that is left in its place is anger and resentment.

Your feelings are genuine, but you give them life by pondering on them when you can just as easily smother them. Feel them fully but move on after. Nursing grievances without pause hurts you more than it hurts anyone else and least of all your aggressors.

In other words, applying past experiences to the present doesn’t work and there are 2 reasons for this. One, the situation you are in now is completely different from past ones; and two, reflecting on the past prevents you from learning new things. This in turn makes you fearful of change and without accepting change, you cannot evolve.

The bottom line is by letting go of the past, you can live a happier life in the present which will have a positive impact on your future. Shed off those grievances and you will feel 10 kilos lighter and for good reason. They are almost literally weighing you down and preventing you from becoming the best version of yourself.

How Hypnotherapy can help

It will be difficult in the beginning because most hurts are buried on a subconscious level. Hypnotherapy can help you extract them if you really want to start life anew and forget past traumas. In other words, it can help you forgive yourself for allowing those things to happen by helping you realize that you were not at fault.

This involves looking at the past through eyes unclouded by hate that will pull out your inner strength and give you the courage to move on with your life. This will allow you to view your present and future prospects in a positive light which is the key to progress. A trained hypnotherapist can help you overcome the past without compromising your future.
