Many people are beginning to understand the power of the mind and body connection. After all how often do you think about eating a particular thing and suddenly find your mouth watering. Or you have to give a talk or attend an interview and the very thought of it gets you feeling anxious in your stomach or rushing to the loo. Our thoughts and imagination create emotions and the emotions affect us physically. Anxiety is a particularly powerful feeling and generally if you are anxious or stressed you will feel it as physical discomfort somewhere in your body. And when you are happy and optimistic your body feels open and relaxed. But the role of the mind and emotions in our state of health appears to be a vital one and by understanding this relationship we can claim a greater role in our own wellbeing.
Deepak Chopra writes in Ageless Body, Timeless Mind. “Without the feeling there is no hormone; without the hormone there is no feeling … The revolution we call mind-body medicine was based on this simple discovery: wherever thought goes, a chemical goes with it.”
Hypnotherapy can be a powerful tool helping the client to take back control of their thoughts and feelings and thus overall wellbeing.
Many misconceptions exist about the Hypnotic state and if you are wondering what it is like to be hypnotised, it is a little like daydreaming or become so absorbed in a book or a film that you are completely oblivious to everything else. In fact we all drift in and out of hypnosis several times a day without even realising it.
In hypnotherapy the subconscious mind is addressed while the conscious mind is resting thereby allowing the suggestions to be accepted subconsciously without criticism. The subconscious part of our mind it where our “programming” is and it is these “programs” that often create the behaviours we are trying to change.
