“She has been brainwashed! I just can’t get through to her anymore.”
I heard a frustrated woman say this about her sister. Several others chimed in about their frustration in trying to talk to someone who is tuned into different information about the world than they are. Each is completely convinced that the other is WRONG!
The conversation went on to explore how it might be possible to “get through to” these brainwashed people. Clearly lots of energy was tied up both in experiencing and trying to solve the problems.
I was reminded of my therapy clients who wanted to tell me how WRONG their parents were. Not surprisingly, when they stopped trying to prove themselves RIGHT, they often noticed how much more rational their parents had become.
The three core Logosynthesis sentences* provide a wonderful, gentle path to allow anyone to remove personal energy that is stuck in doing the impossible task of changing someone else’s mind. I suggest inserting the trigger phrases, “this belief that she is wrong” or “this belief that it’s my responsibility to change how he is thinking” into the core sentences.
That not only retrieves your own energy but allows you to see and interact with the other person differently.
Learn different ways to use the sentences* in the “Letting It Go” book.
