That can make your life much easier and you very skilled at something but with negative habits it can be your worse nightmare. Our brains can be wired to keep doing things that are destructive to us over and over again. The brain creates neuro-pathways that keep us locked the the same way of thinking and behaving.

It took him months. The good news is that PSYCH-K can facilitate changes in neuro-pathways in minutes. I am not talking about riding a bike but rather thoughts and behaviors. Enjoy!
