Could Hypnotherapy Benefit You?

Have you been feeling stress, anxiety, depression, anger, guilt, low self-esteem, or some other emotional pain? Do you feel stuck or held back by something in your life? Or do you struggle with insomnia, insecurities, weight issues, chronic pain, or addiction?

If so, hypnotherapy can be a valuable tool for you to create positive change in your life.

Hypnotherapy is extremely transformational because it works directly with the subconscious mind. The subconscious mind is 90 percent of our mental potential and records every experience from birth until death and beyond. It holds our negative mental patterns and correlating emotional triggers. It is the part of the mind we use as we create and manifest in our lives through our thoughts, emotions and energetic vibrations. The subconscious mind also holds all our fears, inhibitions, anxieties and emotional and physical reactions to everyday circumstances in our lives. By working with the subconscious mind directly you are able to treat and alleviate the issue at the root and create new empowering beliefs that bring positive lasting results .

As Rick Hanson PH.D. and Richard Mendius MD explain in their book, Buddha’s Brain; your mental/emotional patterns directly influence your brain’s chemistry and even structure and will continue to fire neuron groups in accordance with the established patterns. He states, “ One thing is for sure, it’s that you can do the small things inside your mind that will lead to big changes in your life. When you change your brain you change your life.”

Hypnotherapy is the most powerful tool to erase habitual negative limiting patterns stored in the subconscious mind. As you engage in hypnotherapy, you create new positive empowering beliefs that benefit you on all levels, physical, mental, and emotional. Hypnotherapy helps one gain insight into your habitual patterns and helps you reprogram your mind and change how one experiences life. Pain of all kind emotional or physical is a mental affliction at the deepest level and can be relieved on that level. Aside from being the most effective type of psychotherapy according to several studies; it is a deeply relaxing, peaceful experience that brings an extremely pleasant sense of well being.

“Ultimately, happiness comes down to choosing between the discomfort of becoming aware of your mental afflictions and the discomfort of being ruled by them”- Yongley Mingyur Rinponce

Hi Eva,

I am glad you enjoyed the article, thank you! In regards to your question; I would have to say both are possibilities. Using the fear of the dark example as one goes through the therapy we could reframe how one feels about the dark which would naturally ease and then erase the fear. Hypnotherapy can be very abstract and so often times the correct use of metaphor or other technique in the hypnotic state can change a mindset, allow an emotional healing, cancel out a fear, habit, or condition seemingly to just be erased or changed spontaneously. Sometimes a person can pinpoint what made the change and other times like I said previously it can just seemed to have happened. I believe it really is subjective to individual expeience.

Hello, Your article sounds extremely inspiring! But here’s what’s interesting: after hypnotherapy, a person realizes what exactly has changed in him? That is, for example, if I have a fear of the dark, then hypnotherapy helps to find reasons not to be afraid of it, or does it simply erase the fear, as if it did not exist?
