Using Tree of Life to Reach your Goals!

By on September 29, 2014

The Tree of Life is a magical tool taken from the world of kabbalah. As an avid explorer of spiritual systems of enlightenment and practical systems for reaching goals, I have found the Tree of Life to be the single most powerful model of human experience. At its lowest levels the Tree of Life explores how to use your brain and emotions (body) to achieve your goals and outcomes in the physical world, to be a better business woman, salesman, friend, lover…

But the Tree of Life does much more than this. It also illuminates the role of higher level motivations in our goals. In fact all worthwhile goals originate at these higher levels of being, from our identity and the connections that we have to the universe, a higher power, god, however you perceive that to be.

These higher level drives are then mediated through our energetic selves, our Buddha nature, Meta Programs in NLP, call them what you will. And through our beliefs about ourselves, the world and our place in it. All this takes place in unconscious awareness before we switch on our working memories, our brain interface, to put those goals into practical application.

Below is a Huff Post article resferencing two interesting yet simple pieces of research that demonstrate the importance of these higher powers in driving our success in life, in this case success at college or even at word puzzles. What this research shows is that those who found a larger meaning in otherwise mundane tasks, and the importance of those tasks to them as complete human beings, did better at the tasks. These individuals who found this higher meaning also became more energized (or less tired) as a result of doing these ‘important’ tasks.

As hypnotists, one of our key roles is to link our hypnosis client’s goals to their higher selves. We must strive to allow our hypnosis clients to access their higher selves. This is the key if they are to achieve their goals on a longer term basis. Photo courtesy of Prozac1 and

We find it exciting to pledge ourselves ambitious goals but boring to practice the everyday behaviors required to attain them. Now new research is demonstrating that our ability to succeed at a task may well depend on how exciting and valuable we expect that task to be. How Boredom Can Lead to Failure|Caroline L. Arnold
