New year resolutions have become a cliché. That’s because no matter how much we want to change or improve ourselves, the changes we want are sometimes seem almost impossible to achieve – even if we put our mind to it. However, with hypnosis, the mind is used in a way where it empowers you to get rid of the demons that have been pulling you down for the longest time. Learn more about hypnosis and how it can change your life for good.
“Hypnosis works and the empirical support is unequivocal in that regard. It really does help people,” says Michael Yapko, PhD, a psychologist and fellow of the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis.
What is Hypnosis?
The term hypnosis came from the Greek god of sleep, Hypnos, and it is defined as guided relaxation combined with focused attention to reach a certain heightened state of awareness that is also known as a trance.
During a hypnosis session the person usually lies on a sofa or just sits comfortably on a nice chair while the consulting hypnotist guide communicates with the subconscious using a prepared script which puts the person in hypnotic trance that desired state. It is paramount to the success of achieving that desired state in order to distract the person from his normal surroundings. Through this, the consulting hypnotist creates verbal confusion that makes the critical mind go under duress.
Once the person is in a hypnotic trance state, he becomes more open, can discuss a lot more, and respond more readily to suggestions a lot better. With this In this state of mind, it becomes possible for the consulting hypnotist to help the person overcome certain problems like various issues such as insomnia, overeating, smoking, stress, anxiety, panic, phobia-related issue and even bodily pain. Once the critical faculty of the brain is “turned off”, the subconscious side, which is where the habits lie, would actively listen. It is also possible for the consulting hypnotist to help the person to improve overall performance (at work, in school or in sport), increase self-esteem and self-confident, improve focus and concentration and remain focus on achieving their goals (new year resolutions)
Below are a sample of issues where hypnosis can be of help: to people for the long term.
A lot of people find overeating to be a difficult habit to break. Aside from the physical aspect, there are also always some emotional factors that are trapped in the unconscious that makes all conscious efforts futile. That is why hypnosis, by dealing with those emotional factors, can be most effective in cutting down overeating.
For this concern, using hypnosis for weight loss often require several sessions before the personal triggers can be determined. The consulting hypnotist also needs to learn the eating habits of the people before he uses hypnotherapy on them. Once everything is established, the consulting hypnotist uses certain commands that will control unhealthy eating habits. These commands may come as instructions like, “quit eating after five or six bites.” Or, “eat only half of the plate that is in front of you.”
Smokers who want to quit often find it difficult to kick the habit. even if there are countless nicotine-replacement medications and non-nicotine prescriptions available in the market. Finding the right one can be quite the challenge, making it frustrating for a lot of smokers who end up feeling defeated. For such people, one of the ways the consulting hypnotist can do is to change the thought process person perceptions about cigarette/cigar and smoking and which takes out their emotional connection to smoking. This effectively makes it easier for the person to quit smoking avoid it, and oftentimes ending up feeling disgusted even by the smell of cigarettes/cigar.
What should be considered a pleasure has become elusive for some to an extent that their daily functions are affected by it. Chronic sleep loss usually results in health issues like obesity, heart diseases, and even depression.
There are prescribed medications that are supposed to help a person sleep better but the master of sleep is the subconscious mind which is not what the medications target.
The consulting hypnotist, on the other hand, deal directly with the subconscious mind. In addition to the non-hypnotic methods, the hypnotist can teach the person how to relax, help them to overcome stress, anxiety, and depression and help the person to recall previous experience of falling asleep then teach them to anchor and trigger that feeling.
The secret is to know what the situation is and in this case, the fear of insomnia is what causes it. In this case, the consulting hypnotist helps the person overcome the anxiety that the person feels towards his lack of sleep to manage the problem.
Though pain is something nobody wants to feel, it is actually a very effective response of the body when it wants to warn us about some specific conditions that can harm us. However, if the pain is chronic, there is a big chance that the nervous system may continue to relay the pain signal even if the body has been already healed. Hypnosis can turn off this signal by helping the person imagine a bear crawling back into its cave while snow is softly falling and eventually curling up and sleeping like a baby.
The consulting hypnotist can teach the person deep relaxation technique and how to manage fatigue, help to decrease pain unpleasantness, provide sensory substitution, reduce pain intensity or suggest hypnotic analgesia to effectively control the pain.
Loss of a Loved One
People handle loss in different ways, and it mostly depends on how important the lost person was. The closer the person was to the one they lost, the stronger their feelings are. To some extent these emotions can be unhealthy because they can cause insomnia, anxiety and depression. Crying is a good exercise, but with the use of hypnosis the person can be given positive suggestions that are helpful in dealing with loss. The consulting hypnotist may ask the person to create a time frame, commanding them to tell when they are tired of this feeling.
Anxiety is a natural reaction to certain circumstances that causes nervousness, fear, apprehension, and worrying, but when it is constantly experienced at extreme levels, it can be debilitating and can render you virtually useless even if your entire body is physically fit. Anxiety disorders affect millions worldwide. The treatment for this would involve therapy, medication, or both.
Hypnosis helps by identifying the root cause of the stress. It can be situational, physical, or may stem from issues in the past that hasn’t been dealt with. For instance, when people have speech defects have a fear of public speaking, often it may not be a physical concern but rather it was rooted in a past experience that created had a big impact on the person.
For example, a father might have unintentionally screaming at his kid with belittling words and if that kid accepted those belittling words as true, they will keep playing in his mind throughout his life causing him to feel anxious. In this case, the consulting hypnotist can help “that kid” to identify the root cause of the issue then led him to change the perception of his yelling father’s words and understand his father’s positive intention. With that perception and understanding the anxiety fades away memory and instead of a yelling father, the person will remember a loving one.
