Is Your Mind More Weeds Than Flowers?
In a session the other day with a client, I was attempting to find a metaphor to describe the process of creating change in the mind and the techniques I use to do that.
If you've got a mind that is overgrown with barren ground and weeds (negative thoughts), it's going to be hard to grow anything there. Yet a spot clear of weeds and with soil that is rich, sown & filled with lots of nutrients can grow flowers, vegetables, herbs, or anything else it desires.
The challenge is how to pull the weeds that are invariably there, and how to get the flowers growing. For some solutions to this dilemma, and what helped my client, read on.
