Life is really very simple. What we give out, we get back.
The thoughts we think and the words we speak create our experiences.
The subconscious mind accepts whatever we choose to believe.
If we choose to believe that life is lonely and sad, that is what we will find in our lives.
It is difficult to live convinced that the life you have can’t be changed. Or that even if you change, your life might no change. This is the general believe of most people.
Whatever we believe becomes true.
It is not always easy to manage stress. There are several techniques and self-hypnosis practices that can be beneficial for people going through stress, however not many people get the same benefit as the stressful lifestyle prevents them from making a self-routine to manage that same crazy lifestyle. It becomes a circle without exit.
If you are often feeling depressed, anxious, or stressed, you are not alone.
We are in a bad-mood epidemic, a hundred times more likely to have significant mood problems than people born a hundred years ago. And these problems are on the rise.
Adults rates of depression and anxiety have tripled since 1990. and over 80 percent of those who consult medical doctors today complain of excessive stress.
Our children are also in trouble, with at least one in ten suffering from significant mood disorders.
It is clear that our moods are deteriorating at unprecedented rates. However, it is not so clear why.
People are forced to turn more and more to medication and drugs for solace.
Some negative feelings are unavoidable and even beneficial. They are true emotions that can become unbearable and hard to take.
True grief moves us through our losses, true fear warns us of danger, true anger can defend us from abuse, and true shame can teach us to grow and change.
These emotions can be relieved through counselling. However, once they get reprised or misdirected they can cause long-term sequels that might have a big impact in life, an imprint that will be there forever.
Not wonder why so many people change emotions suddenly without understanding the reasons. Or why some people who used to be quiet and calm suddenly become violent and intolerant. There are deep roots to their behaviour.
These roots can be found and directed, if they are properly addressed.
We all make mistakes and beat ourselves up from time to time. But if you are finding fault with your behaviour or appearance almost every day, it’s likely that false feelings of low self-esteem are responsible.
There is no need to live with these kinds of negative feelings on a regular basis.
The four emotion generators in your brain are called “neurotransmitters”. Some of their specific names will probably be familiar to you.
Neurotransmitters are the chemical messengers that send signals from one neutron (nerve cell) to another throughout your entire nervous system.
Serotonins, cathecolamines, GABA, and endorphin. Each of these four neurotransmitters has a distinctly different effect on your mood.
A well-stocked brain produces true emotions, depending on your life circumstances, you’ll generally feel emotionally positive if your key neurotransmitter levels are high.
A poorly stocked brain produces false moods: if you drop too low in any of the key neurotransmitters, you will tend to develop a specific set of defective moods as a result.
The standard symptoms may come and go, become more or less intense, or remain constant.
What happens in hypnosis and meditation is that the balance of chemical neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine change dramatically both during hypnosis and afterwards, the latter apparently as a direct response to suggestions during hypnosis.
The act of entering hypnosis and meditation, often induced through calming, meditative practice appears to increase serotonin levels (feel-good, inner peace neurotransmitters) and this primes the brain for acceptance of hypnotic suggestion, whilst dampening conflict responses.
Dopamine levels (alertness, excitation neurotransmitters) are reduced. After hypnosis, dopamine levels rise, but depending on hypnotic suggestion, reuptake of serotonin may be inhibited.
Importantly, this is precisely the chemical reaction that takes place with the use of most bulk standard anti-depressants.
The primary difference between use of anti-depressants and hypnosis is that the effect of hypnosis is actually a memory or suggestion-triggered response, and not a largely chemical one.
Through concentrated relaxation techniques, humans have the capacity to influence their own biological and neurochemical reactions through suggested/learned/remembered problem solving.
While the effects are limited, it may be possible to use hypnosis to ‘train’ the brain to emulate the effects of drug treatment, or respond to physical injury, learning/business challenges and personal/personality problems – all through moderation of neurotransmitter levels and triggering of other biochemical responses.
The most recommended way to deal with stress is to get help from a qualified person capable to direct suggestions specifically to places where the root of stress lies.
Stress and anxiety are literally epidemic in our culture, and are among the top reasons people seek hypnosis.
Hypnocell® has a convenient program for stress management using hypnosis as a technique going deeper into the subconscious, finding the seed, and changing thoughts and emotions which are stressful. Stress causes release of cortisol that has detrimental effects on health. By taking this program at least once a week, depending on the stress level you are experiencing, you will significantly reduce the negative effects of stress in your life.
In order for hypnosis to be effective, you need to become deeply relaxed. One of the best ways to do this is to close your eyes and start with some slow, deep breathing. You can begin making suggestive statements to yourself such as “I am becoming increasingly relaxed with each breath” or “I feel the tension leaving every muscle in my body as I relax”. Continue breathing deeply and slowly. It can help to systematically focus on each muscle group in your body and relax one after the other. Also, while you are breathing, visualize the stress leaving your body.
If you are struggling with stress in your life have a look at this program.
