Can hypnosis help with anxiety?

Can hypnosis help with anxiety? Treating anxiety with hypnosis has a long and successful history. Many people associate hypnosis with a deep state of relaxation and that will certainly contribute to easing anxiety. Hypnosis goes even further than mere relaxation. Hypnosis goes to the most basic habit of how we respond to the world around us. Many people thrive in high-stress environments while other people find it hard to cope. The difference between these two people is in how their subconscious minds respond to stress. It makes sense that to change a person's subconscious response to stressful events they will not perceive or react to that event in the same way. Hypnosis can change a stressful event, like public speaking, into an exciting opportunity that builds ones confidence and self esteem. Hypnosis helps make this subconscious change buy first imagining the ideal response. This could be a state of calm, or ease, or peace of mind. In building this is ideal response the subject is given more control over it until the they can feel at ease in any situation. Creating Resourcefulness This is much more than just imagining one so-called “happy place” because the immediate response to stress is now peace of mind. Peace of mind, comfort, ease happens automatically, without conscious effort. An additional part of the hypnosis process is also call the ego strengthening. Ego strengthening consist of building the self-image and self-esteem of the subject so the on a very deep level they see themselves as stronger and more resilient. For many people the amount of control they feel after hypnosis is dramatic and positive. To demonstrate this to the subject the hypnotist will ask the subject to try to create anxiety after the hypnosis session. The subject will often report being unable to feel anxiety [...]

Hypnosis is NOT Magic (it just seems magical).

No, hypnosis is not magic. Hypnosis is a very specific process that anyone can go through to make changes in their life. Changes can include getting rid of habits, craving and addictions eliminating fears relieving PTSD improve motivation enhance sports performance remove anxiety build confidence and self esteem .... and more, a lot more. There is little wonder while some people put hypnosis in the realm of magic. Many people have tried everything to gain control of some part of their lives only to have gotten results with hypnosis. So... it MUST be magic, right? No. Hypnosis is not magic. How Hypnosis Works Most people try to make improvements to their lives with conscious effort. Many times it will work, yet for many people there are changes that can't be made no matter how hard you resolve to change them. A cigarette craving will become overpowering, a chocolate donut will seemingly call your name, anxiety pops up even when you've resolved to stay calm. All of these things continue to happen because, even though you've made a conscious decision, there is a deeper process going on. This SubConscious process is stronger than willpower and is often tied to deep seated emotions. Hypnosis bypasses your willpower by going directly to the SubConscious level to make changes. This may be experienced in the hypnosis session by a strong focus on the positive things you want instead of removing things you don't. Sometimes changes happen by reevaluating old events in light of new wisdom. By doing that traumas can be turned into events where something valuable was learned. At no point is the SubConscious mind told it's bad, wrong or evil. By contrast, the SubConscious mind is recognized for doing the best it could with such limited information. It is then told what [...]

Hypnosis For Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

One of the reasons hypnosis has been proven useful for the treatment of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is because of the similarity between hypnotic phenomena and the symptoms of PTSD. The similarities include the absorption of awareness and the linking of emotional responses to outside stimuli. One can argue with some accuracy that PTSD is a form of hypnosis in that PTSD creates an effect in the same way as a post-hypnotic instruction. The difference between PTSD and hypnosis is that PTSD is highly negative and unintended while hypnosis is beneficial and consciously directed. Absorption of Awareness The trauma of an event causing PTSD has the effect of taking up all the the awareness. The trauma of the event becomes EVERYTHING the subject experiences. In psychological terms the subject becomes DISsociated from themselves and associate into the trauma.  From this one of two things can result. The first result is the fear/panic/anxiety becomes linked to specific events, situations and environments causing phobias and extreme forms of aversion. Avoidance of crowds and loud noises is an example. The second result isn't linked to anything specific and can erupt as free floating panic attacks and anxiety. Another symptom is a detachment from reality, where the subject doesn't feel connected to anything they are experiencing. Linking Strong Emotions Both PTSD and hypnosis utilize emotions to make change. PTSD associates the subject into a trauma, hypnosis works by associating the subject into an positive and resourceful emotional state. For this reason hypnosis is a very useful tool to undo traumatic stress responses created by PTSD. The hypnosis process is straightforward. The subject's attention is guided by the hypnotist, thus all that's needed is the ability to understand and follow simple instructions. Hypnosis creates a resourceful emotional state where the subject can experience events and [...]

Anger Is Better Than Despair When It Comes To Quitting Smoking

Trying to quit smoking can be frustrating. Every time you quit you may also find a reason to start up and having that happen several times makes it very easy to start beating yourself up. After several attempts to quit you feel more frustrated and worse about yourself. I'm here to tell you IT'S NOT YOUR FAULT and beating yourself up only lessons your resolve to quit. Consider nicotine is a DRUG your brain gets very accustomed to and it can be EASY to fall back into the addictive habit. This is by intentional design of the tobacco industry. They want you to stay addicted to maintain their profits. The tobacco industry use a mind control tactic used by the worst of humanity: human traffickers. They will frustrate and punish every attempt to leave until their victims surrender to the horrible life of a literal slave. Big Tobacco wants you to become a slave to their product. Big Tobacco knows the best way to keep you addicted is to make sure you repeatedly fail to quit smoking until you give up and give in to the cigarette. After a while you become so depressed and frustrated you will surrender to them and agree to your enslavement. It's devious, it's insidious and it's intentional. Don't beat yourself up at your frustrated efforts to quit smoking. Instead get angry and direct that anger at Big Tobacco. Direct your anger at smoking and away from yourself. Getting angry is a much healthier response. I once spoke with a former smoker who told me what got him to quit smoking permanently. As a smoker he had a very contentious relationship with someone who constantly attacked and berated him and lived by a set of ethics he found objectionable and offencive. Like him this other [...]

How would you “UpGrade” yourself?

You can upgrade your computer, your smart phone, your car or get a job promotion. In fact you can upgrade about any material thing you own.  How would you upgrade yourself? Your upgrade has to be based in reality, so no growing wings nor being able to breathe unassisted under water. The upgrades you choose for yourself have to be specific, measurable and attainable. They could be improvement of your habits and lifestyle, a skill, or your character. All-in-all your upgrades are about being a better you, kinder, healthier, more productive with fewer problems, less fears, anxieties, neurosis. One way to start is to pick someone you admire. This could be someone you know personally, but it could also be a imaginary person with all the traits, virtues and attributes you look up to. Ask yourself the following questions: How would this person live? How would this person deal with the problems I face? How would this person keep their focus amid all of life's chaos? Would they have a schedule they would keep to? What would be the healthy habits they would practice? The more clearly you can imagine this ideal person dealing well with your problems the faster you can begin practicing these changes. Make a list of all the upgrades you want to make for your life. What are they for you? Quit smoking? Exercise? Meditate? Get up earlier? Should the ideal behavior be far from your current situation, start small. Don't overwhelm yourself by trying to make a complete overhaul of your life. Pick one thing to focus on. Celebrate your successes and ask what you learned from every time you fell short. There's no failure, only feedback. Most people get caught in the trap of wanting to upgrade too much too quickly. Instead think of [...]

How To Stop Being So Angry All The Time

Life is full of little annoyances – like when the person in front of you in line won’t stop gabbing, or when the waiter mixes up your order. Sometimes, it can be more serious, like when a client is yelling at you because they’re having a bad day. The point is that there are many events in life that we respond to by feeling frustrated. It’s normal to feel annoyance from time to time. But it’s not normal to find yourself fuming over the smallest little thing that goes wrong or to feel angry all the time. There are two ways to be happy in life 1) have people treat you the way you want (not likely) 2) Decide to respond to the people and the world in a better way. Yes, you can be the person who either reacts to events and situations or you can have a set of "first principles" to guide you no matter what sort of chaos happens around you.  Start by deciding what kind of person do you want to be seen as by yourself and others. Do you want to be the person you would look up to with admiration or the person who looks back on your actions with regret and embarrassment?  The next step is to practice being that person. That is not to say it will be easy. In fact expect it to be hard by going over in your mind the most difficult situations you can imagine in the most dignified and resourceful ways. Practice feeling frustrated or angry and calming your self. Rehearse responding to criticism know how the other person feels (even if they are wrong). Understand, your automatic emotional responses happen outside of your conscious control, but if you have set guidelines for your behavior you [...]

Start Living Healthy Before The New Year!

You don't have to wait until New Years to start getting a good start of healthy living. It's very common to gain about one to two pounds during the holidays. Even though this doesn’t sound dramatic, it adds up over the years. The good news is there are ways to avoid holiday weight gain. Tip #1: Don’t Avoid Meals Saving your appetite for a big holiday party or feast? Don’t. Skipping meals during the day may result in overeating. It is especially important to have breakfast, as research shows that those who eat this important morning meal tend to consume fewer calories throughout the day. Include lots of fiber by eating fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Fiber-rich foods are high in volume and will satisfy hunger, but are lower in calories. Tip #2: Keep Portions Small Holiday meals tend to be large, buffet-style and include second and third helpings. While one might not eat an entire cake, a common mistake is eating large portions of foods that are perceived as healthy. It's important to include nutrient-rich foods in your diet, but also remember that these foods have calories as well and should be eaten in moderation. Using this approach at the holiday dinner table will allow you to maintain a healthful eating plan — one that can also include dessert. Tip #3: Have a Strategy to Avoid Overeating — and Use It! There are many strategies to help you avoid overeating. Using a smaller plate, for instance, allows you to put less food on your plate and encourages proper portion sizes. Also, start by filling your plate with vegetables and salad before going to the entrees and desserts. Eating a salad before your meal can help you eat fewer calories overall. Eat slowly and savor every bite, and before you [...]
