Transforming Life History




Learn how to transform your life story


We all have a unique and valuable life story, which defines who we are and how we see the world.

As a Jungian analyst and hypnotherapist, I believe that the journey of self-knowledge begins with understanding our own history.

By identifying and reframing our past experiences, we can better understand our current emotions, behaviors and relationships. This is a process that starts from the inside out.

Sometimes we feel the need to seek help through psychotherapy, also known as "therapy", which will help the patient to identify the causes of emotional problems and find new ways of dealing with life's issues, both good and bad.


Understanding that life is fickle is important. Even if you make the right decisions at a given moment, events may turn out differently from what you expected.


It's important to know how to deal with the unexpected without suffering.


I have a professional colleague and friend called Erickson Antunes who exemplifies well the role of the therapist and the doctor when he says:

We human beings have a body:

And the body is cared for by the doctor // The mind is cared for by the analyst, the therapist and the spirit is cared for by God.

Understanding your life story can be a healing experience.


When you learn to transform your life, you will be able to achieve your dreams and manage your emotions and feelings, discovering new perspectives and paths to physical, mental and emotional well-being.

No matter what your life story is, know that you are not alone and can start again today in the here and now. You are the author of your own story and responsible for your own destiny.


I believe that a fundamental step towards change is self-knowledge. You need to look at yourself honestly and identify the behaviors and thoughts that are preventing progress in a certain area of life.


Be true to what you think, feel and do! Congruence, totality, wholeness.


Neuroscience brings us great contributions that I would like to share with you. It teaches us that the human brain is incredibly plastic and capable of changing over time.

This means that we can create new neural patterns and change the way we think, feel and act. However, this change requires effort and dedication.

Over time, this new neural pattern becomes stronger and more natural, making it easier to maintain a different lifestyle.

How?

Acquiring knowledge, walking through self-knowledge leads us to self-realization and allows us to do things differently from what we were doing.

Awareness is the answer.

According to neuroscience, creating new neural patterns requires time and repetition. Studies show that it takes around 60 days to create a new habit and 90 days for it to become automatic.


In Jung's book "Memories, Dreams and Reflections", we can see that the transformation of our life story can begin with a deep recognition of our inner world, including our dreams, fantasies, emotions and memories.

From an analytical perspective, we can say that our true story is the story of our inner life, and it is through the integration of these experiences that we can achieve individuation and a fuller life.

I would say that it's important to understand that change happens from the moment we become aware of what was previously unconscious.

There's a phrase by Carl Jung that says: "Until you become conscious, the unconscious will direct your life and you will call it destiny".

There's another phrase that sums up his whole life: "My life is the unconscious come true".

Think about it.
