Unconscious Allegiances, Forbidances and Fear of Success
I wanted to bring you an interview that writer and book publisher Lynne Klippel did with Judith Shervin, Ph.D and Jim Sniechowski ,Ph.D, who wrote What Really Killed Whiney Houston. It will speak especially to writers, but really it's a message for all of us about what holds us back from moving forward in our lives - especially in our creative outlets. I think their message can be universally applied as well to any endeavor we are contemplating, as well as to our relationships.
Drs. Shervin and Sniechowski discuss the idea of releasing internal permission and what holds us back from doing and having and creating. They speak about what we give our heart to and why, as well as the voices we hear that make up our belief system.
Here in the office when we unpack the obstacles to our success and contentment and shine the light on what gets in the way of recovery from addiction, satisfying relationships, healthy livelihoods, creative energy, we often uncover old loyalties, beliefs and ideas. And while these may have protected us in the past and helped us to survive, now they hinder us.
This short interview gives a good, clear and enjoyable synopsis of how this happens and how to begin to do things differently. Have a listen and you'll see what I mean.
