What is the “purpose or meaning of life?”

What is the “purpose or meaning of life?”

An often-posed question is what is the “purpose or meaning of life?”

To various people, it signifies different things. No surprise there. However, it is astonishing how few individuals take the time to pause and contemplate what could be…

That means, most individuals will never realise the full potential that inherently exists within all of us. This can lead to unfulfilled life experiences characterised by worries, self-doubts, and a lack of direction and purpose.

The failure to invest in the most valuable asset, namely yourself – may be the most serious oversight of all.

If only you knew how much more fascinating, engaging, and gratifying life could be if you did tap into the mind’s, body’s, and spirit’s untapped potential…

It is true that befriending the mind, body, and spirit is a fine art that demands work and practise. It is far too important to discuss in passing; instead, it deserves to be investigated and experienced. We should be grateful that most of us have the luxury and chance to explore, investigate, and learn new things to experience satori – sudden insight.

The journey to find one’s “purpose or meaning of life” necessitates an open mind, a willingness to commit to an honest, authentic approach to self-discovery, self-assessment, self-reflection, and on-going learning. A willingness to experiment, practise, and form new habits in everyday life that benefit oneself and others. Once you have gotten to know yourself, better understood your values and beliefs, made the necessary modifications, and aligned the most essential areas of your life, the existence of your life will take on a new meaning and purpose.

We work as Clinical Hypnotherapists and Life Purpose Coaches at Satori Self Development. Our mission is to assist people in making positive life changes and choices that improve their mental health and wellbeing, allowing them to live a more purposeful and fulfilling life.

Active listening – improve communication and develop better relationships.

Active listening – improve communication and develop better relationships.

How do you communicate?

Communication is a daily occurrence. We have conversations with family, friends, and work colleagues yet we often miss what someone is saying. This can lead to a dis-connect and feelings of disappointment, frequently resulting in misunderstandings and conflicts.

The ability to actively listen is important because it allows us to effectively communicate and improve the relationship we have with others.

Actively listening takes effort and awareness. Firstly, it is about recognising what is one’s style of communication, thus self-awareness it pivotal.

Have you thought about your listening style?

Your body language – toward or away from the other person?

Are you thinking distracting thoughts?

In one research study, participants had a brief conversation with someone trained to engage active listening, someone giving them advice, or someone who gave simple acknowledgement of their point of view. The study shows that participants that received active listening reported feeling more understood at the end of the conversation.1

Staying focused and present is pivotal to active listening during the conversation. We know our lives are busy, however there are key active listening techniques one can use to becoming a more effective listener:

Electronic gadgets

  • out of sight
  • on silent

Body Language

  • body position – slightly turned toward the other person
  • relaxed body posture
  • maintaining eye contact – avoid breaking state by looking elsewhere
  • nodding or uttering ‘yes or mmm or uh-huh’ – acknowledging your attention
  • consciously focusing on the conversation – minimise distracting thoughts
  • facial expression – relaxed to avoid unintentionally communicating any disapproval

Paraphrase

  • when the other person has finished expressing a thought, paraphrase and confirm you have fully understood what transpired and that you have been paying attention

Asking questions

  • when appropriate, ask questions to allow the other person to further elaborate any thoughts and feelings to ensure you fully understand the conversation

Avoid judgement

  • listening to the other person’s perspective and accepting ‘what is’ even if you disagree or have other ideas

Interruption of conversation

  • avoid interrupting the conversation with a counter argument or preparing a mental rebuttal
  • taking turns to speak – when appropriate and respectfully sharing perspectives
  • ensure you are clear, concise, and respectful

Providing advice

  • once a conversation has ended, and, if required provide feedback that is clear, concise, honest, constructive, and respectful
  • keep in mind, the intention to contribute does matter

If you are committed to becoming a better communicator, improve and develop better relationships with family, friends, and work colleagues there is a way forward.

At Satori Self Development, we provide therapy, coaching and mentoring to promote personal development.

    Weight Regulation Program 2021

    Weight Regulation Program 2021

    Our routines and habitual ways of going about our daily life have been disrupted.

    Anxiety and anxiety related issues increase with the uncertainty of ‘if’ and ‘when’ things will return to some ‘degree of normality’.

    Getting respite from a pre-occupied mind, we seek for alternatives to gain comfort in trying to alleviate concerns by indulging in unhealthy food choices – reflected in indiscriminate, mindless eating, ‘scoffing’ food and bigger portions have become the ‘new normal’.

    Is this happening right now to you?

    Have you gained weight in the last months?

    Has junk food and snacking become your ‘new normal?’

    Do you feel bloated, uncomfortable in your clothes and in your skin?

    Are you disappointed and resigned?

    Have you considered the long-term health issues?

    There is a way forward…

    At Satori Self Development we work together with you to facilitate a process of positive, healthy changes whereby you are taken from the current space of anxiety, frustration, and stress to an uplifting state of ‘self-care’.

    Successful weight regulation/ loss requires lifestyle changes – eating mindfully, adjusting to appropriate eating patterns and exercise. Most issues concerning weight relate to unconscious habits or lack of awareness. Weight regulation/ loss is about re-educating your unconscious mind as it is about food and exercise.

    We are here to support your decision, ensuring that you are committed to a healthier attitude and more rewarding way of life. This is achieved by using evidence-based modalities: Hypnosis, Mindfulness Meditation, CBT, NLP, EFT and Positive Psychology.

    • Zoom: 1-1 session

    • 6 x sessions over 12 weeks
