Mental and Emotional Blocks: How “Set Points” Keep You Stuck

Emotional and Mental Healing Quote

By Jane Mountrose, with Phillip Mountrose

Have you ever put effort into losing weight, improving your financial future, or realizing a dream and ended up back where you started? Nothing could be more frustrating. This kind of situation can also take a hit on your self-esteem, leaving you feeling like a failure.

Maybe you want to have better health, more prosperity, or supportive relationships, but somehow your dream seems to evade you at every turn. If this is happening, you may have encountered an emotional or mental block, a “set point” that keeps you stuck. We know how annoying this can be, because we’ve been there ourselves in our careers, our health, and our ability to prosper doing the work we love.

Our struggle with set points took us on an enlightening journey where we discovered the keys we and so many people with dreams of better lives are seeking.

What is Holistic Learning?

I see it. I hear it. I touch it.

That’s how we learn, by using our senses. The more you can use all your senses, the better the learning, as research confirms. We also each have a preferred way of learning.

Using a multi-sensory approach — namely, visual, auditory, kinesthetic (sensing), and even tasting and smelling — is how we experience holistic learning.  Also realize that we learn from our external senses and our internal ones.

Arguably, our inner senses are vaster and more powerful. Even though the outer world holds endless wonders, our imagination offers far more.

color-wheel-bigThe boundaries of our imagination surpass any external structure, which we can see, hear or touch. It’s hard to see the pink elephant in the room, except in our imagination.

We can “see” an endless array of images in our minds. Regarding hearing, Beethoven wrote his 9th Symphony, his crowning work, after he became deaf.

And the range of our feelings span from fear and despair to love and hope, and so much more…

How to Create Your Destiny

the woman keeps in hand globe on background sky.What is your destiny and how can you create it?

We view destiny as making empowering choices to realize your brightest future.

It’s not fixed or pre-destined. Destiny is about choosing to thrive more than just survive. Your destiny emerges from following your deeper desires and heartfelt impulses.

Yes, there are influences: karma (past actions), genetics, environment and ancestry. As biologist Bruce Lipton has pointed out, however, your beliefs directly affect your DNA and genes.

William Wallace noted,  “Every man dies. Not every man really lives.”

You can author your life. In effect, you become your own director with Continue reading
