The Childhood Conclusions

Read this, and instantly know yourself better. Promise!

We humans are creatures of habit. We have our habitual way of walking home from school or work. When we take another route, we discover a new shop, park or even a shortcut. We also have habitual thoughts about ourselves. We think we don’t belong – not within our family, our social environment or even on this planet. We think we are not good enough, not smart, educated, old or young enough. We think we better keep what we think and feel to ourselves as we might not be understood. We think that if only we had things under control, life would be good and we would be someone. We fear we are somehow inappropriate and thus tell ourselves we have to keep up a perfect front.

We all come into this world bearing gifts

Our childhood conclusions mirror our greatest gifts, the ones we hold most precious. So liberating ourselves from the recurrent down-putting thoughts, we liberate our originality, our generosity, our creativity, power and authenticity. The five basic patterns of our thoughts about ourselves were discovered a century ago by early psychiatrist William Reich. I offer an easy five-step way to turn these negative thoughts that hold us back into empowering allies.

There is no person in the world we talk to as much as we talk to ourselves
So let’s make that self-talk uplifting and empowering.

Discover who you really are by:
– recognising your predominant pattern(s) of self-thought
– turning negative self-talk around
– living your gifts

  • “Your book is amazing! When I was studying Psychology one of the principles we learned was: every fear is fear of death. At first that sounded pretty intense to me. Later I got to understand that in fact it’s true. If only I could have read your book then. Because reading it feels like a shot of pure oxygen.”

More and more open to life, fully embracing and accepting what is. Fortunately, she also has a way with words. In this book, Lisette is able to merge the worlds of lightness and darkness into a clear and tangible whole.”

  • “Alight is a delight – that rare thing, a self-development book with a fresh perspective and new ideas. Underpinned by the idea that we are all part of one light source, Lisette Schuitemaker offers a range of insights, case studies and exercises for the reader. I particularly enjoyed learning how to confront and neutralize the inner critical voice(s) we all experience.”
