Self-Improvement – An endless effort?

It doesn’t matter who you are, and what kind of professional field you belong to. With each new day, you are granted a chance for personal self-improvement to help you become the best version of yourself.


What exactly do we mean by self-improvement?

It is a daily step forward towards the better “you”. A lifelong process throughout which you refine your abilities and strengths whilst setting new goals and strive for maximizing your full potential.

There’s no denying that personal development is one of the fundamental elements of human existence. Yet, our past-faced life and constantly changing environment often keep us occupied with other activities and duties.

You often hear people say, “but I don’t have time for reading, I have to work” or “I can’t pursue my goals/hobbies because there are other things requiring my attention”.
But exactly this pattern of thinking is what keeps us from becoming the best versions of ourselves.

After all, life will always be engaged, and a path towards self-improvement and higher self is a long and at times, difficult process taking a lifetime. Yet, the feeling of accomplishment and inner peace coming with it tastes like no other, gifting us with a blissful inner harmony and a sense of purpose.


Paths and Methods Towards Personal Improvement

Hypnotherapy and reconnecting with your past life self – hypnotherapy is a great way for identifying your goals while eliminating all the negative patterns and habits that keep sabotaging you.
But how does hypnotherapy work and why it is helpful?

First, we need to briefly talk about the human conditioning, the tendency of us to stay in our comfort zone, caused by our strong liking for ‘tried and tested’ methods even if they are unhealthy or harmful to us.

This pattern of thinking and style of life are also what often sets us for failure; we simply stopped trying improving ourselves due to our customization to unhealthy habits and the familiar comfort that comes with it.

That’s why hypnotherapy is exactly the tool you need – it helps you to become aware of your negative thoughts and harmful habits, and replaces them with positive thoughts, emotions and healthy habits.
All these things combined, contribute to your overall well-being whilst helping you to ascend to the next level of personal excellence.

There are many forms of hypnotherapy itself; some are useful for curing phobias, and coping with stress, while others aid you in weight loss, overcoming anxiety and panic attacks, improving self-confidence and relationships, and even career development.

One of the most powerful hypnotherapy is a past life regression – an efficient way for better understanding yourself by connecting with your past self.

Past life regression hypnotherapy will grant you a new perspective for making sense of both the external, or material world, and internal, or the inner world within you.


Reasons Why You Stop Improving

Clinging onto the past is an unhealthy tendency of humans to dwell in the past makes it difficult to let go of upset and hurt feelings. Which leads us to self-destruction by wreaking havoc of our inner peace and harmony.

When you cling into some element from your past, be it a memory, experience, or even people, you stop being present, and fail to appreciate living in the moment. Therefore, you are physically present, but your mind drifts off in the maze of your past, wondering incessantly.

This state of being is intense energy-draining, leaving you with exhaustion and chaos inside.
The only way to replace chaos with order and to get your energy levels back lies in reconciliation with your past whilst accepting every undesirable aspect from it.

You need to forgive not only yourself for past failures but also all those people who may have hurt you at some point in your life.

By becoming aware that we all make mistakes, forgiving oneself and others get much easier. Which eventually helps you cultivate your empathy and find harmony within and outside yourself.


How to Recognize the Warning Signs Your Body and Mind Are Giving You

When you feel lost in life, the universe comes to your rescue. It establishes the connection with your mind and body – two essential essences of your being.

Bodily Signals

You may notice a gut feeling, uneasy feeling inside your stomach hinting about missing out on something important.
Experience problems with falling asleep, or getting quality sleep, in general. This may be due to worrisome thoughts swirling through your mind, or a vague uneasiness.
Your immune system is also compromised, weakened to the point that you easily get cold, flu, migraines and headaches.

Signals from Your Soul

These signals can be much more intense and painful.
You may feel extreme anxiety and pressure inside. And the feeling of constant heaviness and drowsiness is always present, exhausting your mental and physiological energy and capacities.

Your soul may also try reconnecting with you via dreams.
Dreaming realm is a powerful setting for communicating with your soul and what it is trying to tell you.
Pay close attention to the type of dreams you’re having to find an underlying theme or motif to make sense of the thing making you uneasy.
Your intuition gets also especially powerful, trying to aid you in this difficult period of life. So, make sure to pay close attention to it.


Final Thoughts

Buddha was right – “life is suffering”. But that doesn’t mean you must surrender to it.
Instead, you must get back on your feet each time you fall, to find a spirit within you that keeps you going forward.
Self-improvement is an arduous and lifelong journey, in which you are an eternal student of life.
And even though the path towards self-realization and higher self is difficult, that is exactly what makes it a charming challenge.
And eventually, all the suffering gets compensated by the spiritual bliss and harmony due to answering an inner calling of your highest self.

  1. Hi Desa,

    WoW what an incredible response!! Thank you for your comment which is not only something I agree the most but also it can stand as an article by itself! Bless you! 

    It is very wise that you highlight the importance of not interfering with other people’s Karma and thoughts while in hypnotherapy. 

    I loved the phrases ‘you are truly limitless’ and ‘phobias are literally paralyzing us’ and others. I believe that fear is usually greater in our minds than it is in reality.

    Yes, we are here to learn and in every moment we can learn. Learn life/karmic lessons, improve our selves and reach for our higher self as well.

    This can take hours to analyse but again thank you so much for your comment. I am grateful you took the time to write this long beautiful message. A message that will help people who read it. 

    All the best

    Panos

  2. Hi Antonio,

    I like the point you are making and I want to highlight what you say about forgiveness. I wrote an article about the power of forgiveness and yes, as you say we need to forgive ourselves. Then others and then they will forgive us. It is amazing how people open up to you when you are truly honest and true to them. Thank you for your comment. Panos

  3. Hi WSwartz, thank you so much for your kind comment. It gives me hope that I can go further as it is a new site and I am still learning. But I do care for offering my knowledge and advice to others so I’m happy you found it interesting. All the best to you and I hope to see you around again. Also, happy to check on your site if available. Panos 

  4. This is a really helpful article and I can tell you are genuinely inspired to help your fellow brothers and sisters who may be suffering. Past lives are not only 100% a fact, but we CAN carry traumas so severe, or debilitating phobias from our past lives in our subconscious–where all our SUBJECTIVE (note, not OBJECTIVE, but our personal interpretation) memories from our hundreds of lifetimes are stored. 

    In such cases, where the phobias are literally paralyzing us from moving forward in this life, and where we are not metaphysical students equipped with much better tools to work with the subconscious mind for ourselves, hypnotherapy can be a life-saving option. Then, it is only being used to relieve a distressed mind that is holding a person back. 

    Under these circumstances, there is no negative karma accrued by the patient or the hypnotherapist.

    However, as a spiritual student on the metaphysical path of ascension, we are strongly cautioned NOT to dabble in hypnosis or hypnotherapy of any kind. When we undergo hypnosis, we are essentially voluntarily surrendering control of our conscious mind–and thereby our free will–to allow the hypnotherapist to bypass it and fish around in the subconscious. This is very different from going to a psychic or mystic where the information given to you can still be accepted or rejected by you out of your own free will. (BTW, take info from a psychic vs a mystic with a big grain of salt)

    With hypnosis, you run the risk of violating two spiritual principles–1) never let anyone do your thinking for you, and 2) noninterference in other people’s karma.

    We are here to learn and to face our karmic lessons. A psychic or mystic may just give advice and insight to help us understand our past lives, but a hypnotherapist is crossing a line and now playing a part in the process you are undergoing to work out your own karma.  

    Even if the hypnotist’s motivations are pure, they have the best of intentions and your permission, and the results for you are truly beneficial, this process actually creates karma for you and the therapist rather than resolving it. 

    You must face your karma and your destiny for yourself and no one can do it for you. Yeah, its hard this way, but it is designed in love to help you be all you are capable of being. You are truly limitless, so why use a crutch?

    Also, as I mentioned, the memories stored in the subconscious are our SUBJECTIVE memories, versus objective as they are recorded in our Book of Life. This means that a lot of what you “remember” from your past lives during a past life regression hypnotherapy is not actually real. Then, as with dream interpretation or psychic advice or experiences, you run the risk of reading too much into something which can–again–only pull you in the wrong direction and set you back.

    All this to say, I think that hypnotherapy is a valuable special assistance tool for those suffering from severe trauma and phobias that are holding them back. If you are not a metaphysical student who knows better and has better tools already, and If the hypnotherapist approaches their work in this targeted, sort of brain-surgical way, it can be a GREAT service! However, approaching it as a sort of panacea for all life’s challenges is potentially a short-term gain, long-term loss spiritually speaking. 

  5. Thanks very much, Dane. I totally agree with you. May I say, an unwilling spirit is a spirit that needs help. But the kind of help that comes from inside our selves. Otherwise, no matter how much others are trying to help, if the inner self is in denial there’s only so much you can do. Best wish to you. Panos

  6. Thank you for your kind words Russ Green, it makes me happy that you found my article interesting. Even more, if it inspired you! As I work in the Healthcare sector, I know that the greatest reward is to help others to feel better. All the best to you. Panos

  7. What an incredibly inspirational post this is and it’s just the sort of thing I need because I think a lot of us can start to get a bit complacent and a lack of enthusiasm can set in, but posts like this one here can help to motivate and give a kick start to life’s journey and the thing is that there is always room for improvement, it just takes someone like you to point it out and make us realize that we can all benefit greatly from taking these steps to improve ourselves, I have bookmarked your website and I will be coming back to read more of your posts, thank you for sharing.  

  8. Hello there, thanks for sharing this wonderful post. There are so many people who have given uo the fight because they have been faced with quite a number of difficult situations. However I have often advice we all develop our minds not to give in to challenges that we face, but rather when knocked down, we should see it as a challenge and pick ourselves up. Majority of failed goal is as a result of not having a fighting spirit which is born of a mind that isn’t willing. Nice  being here.

  9. Panos,

    I found your website very interesting. It’s great to be able to offer people idea’s on how to improve their Life. We should all be living our best life as we have but this one. I liked the 66 strategies to enhance your life. You have great information on this subject.

    I like your promotion of WA. Good job. I liked the review as well. The Amazon ad is nice as well.

    I like the graphics and the placement of them. It all works together to make a fun and easy site to navigate.

  10. Hi Fanos

    The hardest critic anybody will  face is yourself. We can be critical of others, but with our self’s we tend to be harder. If we are not, how do you expect to improve? We must constantly challenge ourselves, push beyond our comfort zones,  to see what we are capable of and what our limits are. 

    It can be difficult to forgive ourselves when we do wrong, but in order to be forgiven we need to forgive. Once we do this we will be a better person. I really enjoyed reading the article, as it was very insightful.

    Thanks

    Antonio
