Question from a reader: Dear Wendi, From your experience, is it possible to abandon old personality and enter into new? Some people develop multiple-personality disorder out of shock/trauma, so there must be capacity inside us. While i wouldn’t want that, it may be interesting to get rid of unwanted beliefs or habits. Regards, Saso ~~~~~ Hello Saso,
Can you become a new person?

Can you become a new person?

Yes you can develop a very new and different personality. You are not discarding the old one, but rather you are allowing your true self to shed the fears and limitations that keep you from being who you are really meant to be. We are born with a lot of potential and a unique set of skills. Along the way there are things that happen to us that shape our reactions, values, ideas and all of this becomes our personality. Resolving some of the old values that are no longer helpful or useful, and creating new core beliefs about who you are will result in massive personality changes. A person who was shy and withdrawn due to abuse or humiliation, can resolve the fears that created the shy personality. When those fears are resolved, the person would then find the values that are most important to them and find new ways to experience themselves. Using hypnosis to do this would mean that in your mind you create the person you are becoming, and who you are in the future when you are able to fully express your true self. When your mind experiences this in trance it can become a reality in the way your brain stores this information about yourself. Now, the exciting part. When your brain experiences this as having already happened, even though it was in a trance state, it starts to believe that it is true and makes changes to support this change. These changes can result is some very quick personality shifts. And it gets better. If you experience yourself in this new personality and you also imagine that you are watching yourself doing things as this new personality, your mirror neurons start the process of implementing the skills and unconscious abilities needed to support the new personality. Make sense? It is a natural ability that our brain has and if you allow your brain to experience it, and watch yourself doing it, you are almost assured that the changes will happen. Mirror neurons help us emulate others and continue our development  we need for survival. This helps us by making our body learn to stand up, to talk, to copy other humans and engrain the behaviors that assure our growth and survival. Using these mirror neurons for changing traits, or creating new skills or behaviors is a brilliant way to make the most of the hypnosis process. One of my favorite methods is in the Parallel World session, or on the Time Line Journey program. I think we are clearly stuck with some of our traits and our behaviors, but there are many ways to evolve into new aspects of our personality that will result in being happier, more productive and more powerful.
