Stress and anxiety are all around – you’re bombard from every angle of your life today. A certain amount of stress helps you to rise to the challenges of life and to reach your potential.
But nobody wants to feel like they’re caught in a pressure cooker with no escape route in sight! And too many people feel there is no way out for them.
Stress is unavoidable but it can be managed. Using hypnosis to cope with anxiety and stress can bring lasting and often immediate relief. It is an effective way to help a person to relax and to calm those frazzled nerves.
The best part is there is no medication involved and hypnosis is a very soothing practice for both the mind as well as the body.
If you’ve tried everything from soaking in the bathtub to long walks, or staring up at your bedroom ceiling, and you’re still wracked with excessive stress and anxiety then it’s time for a fresh approach.
Looking into the Subconscious:
Stress and anxiety are real for everyone these day – our 21st-century existence means our bodies and mind are under attack by stress every day.
Not everyone copes with the same amount of it at any given period of time and not everyone is equally good at dealing with it when it enters their lives. Some people lash out at others when they experience too much of it while others allow it to build up inside of themselves and harm them in that manner. Tackling stress and anxiety with hypnosis makes it possible for the root cause of the problems to be found and eradicated.
Hypnosis leapfrogs the conscious mind to communicate directly with the subconscious mind where the reasons and emotions that form the basis for the stress and anxiety are to be found.
Some people can identify the cause of their stress themselves such as work, or a person or circumstances going on in their lives and just need help in coping. But most don’t know why they feel anguished and need help uncovering root causes.
A skilled hypnotherapist can uncover the cause of anxiety or stress during the hypnotic state by asking questions directly of the subconscious mind. It could be a recent event or an event that happened in childhood causing the issue, but when asked the subconscious mind will usually provide the answers.
The hypnotist can then work with the subconscious mind to start the coping phase. This involves working with the patient to create triggers and emotions for feeling different when stress and anxiety come calling.
Hypnosis allows the individual to see into their own subconscious mind and makes it possible through being focused and relaxed to understand and interpret their world, and then how to cope with their emotions once they are faced with stressful situations in the real world.
Different Types of Anxiety:
Anxiety can start small but grow larger over time if it is not managed properly.
It can infuse every area of your life before too long and paralyze your every decision. It can lead to problems at work and/or school. It can also strain your relationships with loved ones and friends. It can interrupt sleeping habits or rob you of sleep all together.
Not all anxiety is the same. Some types of anxiety relate to a single incident while others may be about a series of smaller situations that has grown into a larger issue. Anxiety can have all different types of causes. It can be about the sickness of a family member, a lack of money, or worry over a looming deadline. The causes of anxiety are many.
There are a variety of types of anxiety but the two most common are known as situational and existential.
Situational anxiety is something everyone experiences. It is the nerves you develop right before you write finals, or how you feel when you go out on a first date. Existential anxiety is anxiety that arises from the things in life a person cannot understand nor has any control over. For example, wondering about the meaning of life or what happens when you die are types of existential anxiety.
The Helping Side of Hypnosis:
Hypnosis is beneficial in terms of treating stress and anxiety. It creates a state that is relaxing, soothing, calm and peaceful. This opens the door for the patient to feel more at ease with discussing their problems.
Hypnotic suggestions are effective because they are able to get by the resistance found in the conscious mind in order to make the subconscious more yielding and open to what is to come. The calm that hypnosis promotes helps to further encourage this process.
Imagery and visualizing yourself in a joyful and pleasant environment that is free of stress and anxiety can take a person far away from their problems. Once away from them they can then begin to feel more mentally and emotionally stronger, not to mention more confident. Hypnosis can then facilitate the beginning of problem solving and stress healing.
A safe and comfortable sanctuary from problems is what hypnosis for stress and anxiety relief offers. Working with a trained hypnotist the individual can discover the causes of their worries and concerns and can look for realistic solutions. By so doing, they can gain a greater level of control over their own lives.
