What is hypnotherapy
Hypnosis is a method by which we can alter our state of awareness, allowing us to focus upon issues or ideas of our choosing. Hypnosis is a tool, which we can utilize to enhance or enable whatever we set our minds to accomplish. We can use this tool to build self-esteem and confidence, add clarity and a sense of control to our lives. In the hypnotic state we can access the subconscious mind to implement, at the most effective level, the changes we desire.
Imagine the mind and body as a computer with storage, retrieval and operating systems, which we use in measuring, evaluating and directing all we do. Consider the conscious mind as our input devise, the subconscious mind the hard drive with the programs running and the critical faculty as the link between them.
How Do You Hypnotise Yourself ?
Hypnosis was used many years ago to cure people from illnesses, to stop smoking, for breaking particular bad habits and for building confidence levels. By imagining our lives to be different that what it actually is can help make changes, which may be difficult otherwise. For Hypnosis to succeed the subject should be willing to get hypnotized by the practitioner and must have faith in it otherwise we cannot get the desired results.
All forms of Hypnosis are self-hypnosis. If you learn the basics, your very first effort of Self Hypnosis will make a difference to your life. However, the most important step to Hypnosis is research, learning and improving the techniques you follow. Learning about the subject from the Internet, what you can expect from it. Without any knowledge about the subject it is unlikely that you master the art of Self Hypnosis.
The fir step when you are beginning is to find a suitable place, which is calm and quiet. You need not lie down as you may fall asleep and that is not hypnosis. You should recite or chant a mantra or certain personal words or sayings, which you keep on repeating. This would help your mind to concentrate. You will feel your brain relaxing, as you will be thinking only of those words, which you will be saying.
After you have finished you can tell yourself that you have reached a beautiful state of relaxation of the mind and body. You start counting one to five to get yourself out of the state of Hypnosis. You would feel fresh and relaxed after you have finished the final count. As you practice it, you can discover which method works best for you.
You can practice Self-Hypnosis and improvise on it, learn more about it from the Internet, which has a vast resource for this subject. However it may be difficult doing it without any guidance on your own.
Benefits of Hypnosis
Hypnosis has extraordinary benefits both mental and physical. Hypnosis is not like the image that most people have about some doctor swinging a pocket watch to and fro in an effort to hypnotize you. This description is far from true. Several people use hypnosis for problems like weight loss, to quit smoking, to get rid of their addictions. It also helps people who are lacking confidence, are stressed out or have certain fears or phobias.
Hypnosis can help you solve your emotional problems whether they are big or small. If you have a certain goal, which you are unable to reach, Hypnosis can help you achieve it.
Simply by going into a hypnotic state of mind can relieve you of your stress or fears.
Hypnosis offers you deep mental relaxation as it regulates your breathing. Normally we breathe in quick short breaths, which make you feel tense and stressed out. Fast breathing can make you irritable, uneasy and a bit shaky. During the Hypnosis session you will be breathing deeply which will relax and calm your mind.
Another benefit of Hypnosis is that as the stress is reduced to a great extent your illness will also be reduced. It is a fact that stress is the cause for physical illness like sleep disorders, an increase in our cholesterol and blood pressure and an increase in our sensitivity to pain. As we practice Hypnosis on a regular basis it could reduce your stress levels and tendency to fall ill.
Hypnosis causes deep relaxation, and an increase in the release of “Feel Good” chemicals, which are released by the brain. These “Feel Good” Chemicals create a sense of well being. These chemicals are in short supply in our daily life.
Hypnosis induces good sleep. During the Hypnosis session when your body is relaxed you find that your body can be trained to sleep restfully due to the hypnotic state it is in.
Hypnosis also strengthens our immune system. Stress generally activates the body to produce negative chemicals, the “fight for fight” chemicals which affect your immune system. You are in an aroused, excited frame of mind and only regular relaxation can prevent this from happening.
Hypnosis can be an effective option to solve your problems whether it is a personal problem or helping you to attain your goal in life. It is very good for your body as it makes you feel relaxed and feel in control of your life.
The Powers of Hypnosis
Hypnosis is gaining popularity among people these days. There is a growth in the use and acceptance of Hypnosis as an alternative treatment. It is an effective way to break our bad habits and to change our negative feelings to positive ones. Hypnosis should not be confused with “deep sleep”. It is a state of deep relaxation that focuses attention and concentration. It goes beyond the conscious mind and enters the subconscious level. The subconscious mind will be receptive to the suggestions made by the Hypnotist.
During the Hypnosis session the people experience a heightened sense of awareness. This is a natural and normal state which we experience twice a day – before going to sleep and when you wake up. If you arrive at a particular destination but do not remember driving there, you have been in a natural hypnotic state of mind, which is called “highway hypnosis”
You could also be in state of Natural Hypnosis when you become so involved in reading a book or watching Television that you block everything out. You may be so engrossed in watching a movie that you may not hear the people who are talking to you. You are in a hypnotic state of mind if you are concentrating very intensely on something.
Hypnosis was used many years ago as a powerful healing tool. It was used as a healing treatment in ancient Egyptian sleep temples and the Temple of Aesculapius in Greece.
The Australian physician Franz Anton Mesmer reactivated this practice in 1700’s and Dr.James Braid included Hypnosis in the form of Hypnoanesthesia in the Medical world.
Earlier Hypnosis was used to cure what we now term as posttraumatic stress disorders. It was uses as an effective treatment for post World War I, World War II and Korean War victims who were distraught and in a state of shock. Now the American Medical Association has accepted is as an effective form of treatment and has included Hypnosis training in the medical school curriculum.
The National Institute of Health approved Hypnosis as a complimentary and Alternative Medicine treatment and gives financial aid towards the research done on the subject. The benefits offered by Hypnosis are note worthy. Hypnosis has been successful in areas of pain management, weight management, stress management and also in the treatment of cancer. It is effective in achieving deep relaxation, reducing your fears and phobias, overcoming insomnia and increasing your energy levels.
Hypnosis can help in overcoming anxiety during competitive activities like sports, tests and increases the motivation of a person to achieve his goals. It has been proved effective in improving your memory and concentrating and in building your self-confidence. If you have tried everything and have not succeeded, we have made a conscious decision to change but our subconscious mind does not co-operate, Hypnosis will help you achieve it. Hypnosis motivates the subconscious mind to move in agreement with the conscious goals and desires which in turn help you to succeed.
Hypnotherapy is the answer you are looking for Depression
Most people struggle with their fears and phobias. Hypnosis offers a very natural and effective cure for treating fears and phobias. Hypnosis by way of mental and physical relaxation helps you to train your mind to react differently to your fears and phobias.
Deep relaxation lowers your blood pressure, which in turn reduces the tension in your muscles and brain. Hypnosis reduces the amount of stress related hormones, which help your body to return to its normal state.
The technique, which is used in Hypnosis is that, the conscious part of the brain is subdued so that the subconscious portion is upfront and becomes accessible to the hypnotist. Then the Hypnotist reprograms your subconscious mind and you absorb all the instructions without thinking about it. The subconscious mind is responsible for all those activities which you do automatically like driving a car. It controls your heart rate, your breathing without being dependent on the conscious mind. The conscious mind, which is the rational mind, takes a back seat.
Fears and phobias are learned behaviors. The Hypnotist can help you overcome them by helping you to relate it to something funny. After the session you may feel that the fears and phobias were nothing of great importance. It helps you to tune out of the worries and doubts and you feel more free and relaxed. Hypnosis is often compared to daydreaming, as the people in this state of mind feel uninhibited.
Hypnosis could be an advisable therapy with the help of which you can master your fears and phobias. It can help you reduce your stress that you suffer and it is an amazing option to changing your behavior.
