Will power scriptRequest-a-Script Forum

Thanks for your post. My understanding is that when the will and the imagination are in conflict the imagination always wins which is why Hypnotherapists use imagery with clients. For example, if you were to suspend a plank of wood between the 20th floor windows of two nearby hotels and ask someone to walk across it then the majority of people would refuse because their imagination would go into overdrive (what if I fall, lose my balance, etc). However, lie that same plank of wood upon a couple of bricks on ground level either side and most people wouldnt have a problem walking across it. In order to help your client I think it might work better by trying to understand where and why her need for self discipline and control comes from. I do hope other members or visitors will share their points of view so that we can learn from each other.
