Meditation For Addiction
Is addiction controlling your life? It seems that nearly all of us are addicted to something: whether it’s alcohol, tobacco, food, coffee, sex, prescriptions, illegal substances, video games, etc. “Addiction is a learned behavioral problem that requires willpower and motivation to change” says developmental neuroscientist Mark Lewis.
At Theta we also believe in this notion. GMS sessions can give your unconscious mind the help it needs to find and choose another option in place of your addiction so you are not just relying on willpower alone. Like all habits, they can be learned and unlearned, leaving you free of the stigma of feeling like you’re an addict for life. GMS is a great tool in helping you manage withdrawal. The slowing down process during meditation allows you to pay attention to what is going on inside of you at the present moment. GMS can help you retrain your unconscious mind to ‘step out’ of the learned addictive pattern and step into your conscious being.
What is GMS™
The way we think and what we constantly think about determines what we achieve and fail to achieve throughout our daily lives. Most of us believe we are consciously in charge of our thoughts, but this is far from the truth. According to cognitive neuroscience, our decisions, actions, emotions and behavior depend on the 95% of brain activity that is unconscious, which is influenced by our past conditioning, experiences as well as of the collective cultural mind-set we inherited.
GMS is quite simple, through meditation one enters into a deeper state of suggestibility. Once in this state, Guided Meditation and Suggestion is used to influence emotional, behavioral, and cognitive change to align with your personal goals.
The GMS technique is derived and influenced from using a combination of theories.
