Add up your scores for each block’s 3 statements. The blocks with the highest scores are likely areas for you to address. Your “biological spacesuit” has helpfully/”helpfully” installed patterns along the way based on your past experiences. These can be uninstalled! I highly recommend Havening Techniques for this because it’s super fast, super easy, safe (a safe haven), and even fun! With the “helpful” blockers dismantle we can truly embody confidence. <3
