Right now, when things are changing day by day, if you could choose a Superhero Superpower, what would you choose?
Strange question? Maybe. But go ahead and choose. Then ask yourself why you chose that one. What difference will it make to you? If you woke up tomorrow morning and realised that you actually had that superpower, what would you notice about yourself that was different?
I came across an article today that listed the top 20 Superpowers. Now, superpowers are defined as “imaginary superhuman abilities”, so we can’t really expect to wake up with one, but just for interest, here are my favourites out of the top 20 –
- Teleportation – wouldn’t that be amazing? It would make social distancing a bit difficult though – who knows where you’d end up!
- Super Strength – we could shift buildings and cars!
- Invulnerability – now that would make things easier
- Telepathy – handy!
- Shapeshifting – I do with shifting a bit of my own shape…
- Flight – you could check if Tesco was busy before you set off!
These ones are obviously ‘real imaginary powers’, but the kinds of powers I’m thinking about are things like confidence, rational thought, decisiveness and calm. Which of these would you choose?
As a Solution Focused BRIEF therapist and hypnotherapist, I help people who feel as though they have lost their superpowers. Using the power of conversation combined with the gentle, effectiveness of hypnosis, those hidden powers and resources are rediscovered. More than once, I have heard the words “I feel like myself again” . Here are some testimonials from men who have experienced it.
A bit like Samson in the bible story, who became weak when his hair was cut off, it can sometimes seem as though our strengths come from something external to us. In fact those superpowers are always there, part of us – they just get hidden for a while and it’s difficult to believe they still exist.
