Target: A Mysterious Reaction
This example was a mystery that needed to be unraveled.
Carolyn was very distressed at the idea of retiring from her successful career and couldn’t figure out why. She had invested well and had ample resources to stop working without it having any impact on her lifestyle at all. She wanted to retire and spend more time with her already retired husband. Still, every time she thought about retirement, she was terrified of not having enough money.
She told me, "Taking money to the bank means that it disappears." We used the statement, “this belief that taking money to the bank means that it disappears” as the target.
When she said the sentences she realized that her belief was connected to a time when her parents promised to put money she earned into the bank for her to use for college. They spent the money for their own needs and never returned it to her.
Her old belief was a reality in her past experience. Money did disappear when she put it in the bank then, but that belief had nothing to do with her current reality. She dissolved the belief and is thoroughly enjoying her retirement.
