Hypnosis for Stress & Anxiety
This has been a super stressful year for us. Everyone all around the world has felt the stress and uncertainty surrounding our current events. I, myself, have found myself worrying about the future and how the best way to prepare. However, we all know that when we are worrying about the past or the future, it takes away the peace and joy of the present moment. It's so true. It can be a beautiful Saturday morning and you're drinking coffee reading the news and all of the sudden, your heart rate is SO FAST. You find your breath is so shallow you are barely breathing. It takes major effort to gather yourself and take a deep inhalation. The signs of anxiety return. Again. And Again. Perhaps, you have even taken medication and see many doctors to try to get to the root of why you are this way. But it still shows up. So many of us live with stress and anxiety due to work environment/conditions, home environment/conditions, finances, personal health issues, family stress, social pressures, unprocessed grief, trauma, and the list goes on and on....
We do not have to suffer anymore! One of the meanings of yoga is to "attain something that was previously unattainable". And at times, I have thought I will always have the attachment of stress and anxiety. But through the regular practice of yoga, pranayama, meditation, and hypnosis, I have found ways to diffuse the signs as soon as they start or even before they begin.
Here are some ways I work with clients when relieving stress and anxiety is our goal:
Focusing on the breath - specifically the exhale - creating a longer exhale than inhale - holding the exhale out
Forward bend yoga poses - standing and seated
Twist yoga poses - standing, reclined, seated
Chanting the mantra, OM.
Creating peaceful imagery
In hypnosis, suggestions that are positive affirmations to remind you to stay relaxed when triggering situations come up (HERE IS A LINK FOR AN IMMEDIATE AUDIO DOWNLOAD: HYPNOSIS FOR STRESS)
Hypnotherapy has been the best tool for myself and others to really "turn the corner" with being able to control stress and anxiety levels. Yoga, pranayama, meditation are great ways to maintain the progress but for a real transformational change you need to access the subconscious layers of the mind that hold our beliefs, habits, and patterns.
