Anxiety has been on the rise for some time.
In August 2018, Barnes & Noble announced a huge surge in the sales of books about anxiety; a 25 percent jump on June 2017. I wonder if any of those books were about how to do self hypnosis to calm anxiety.
This is a serious matter because the costs of being anxious affect one’s health and possibly career and personal relationships. Panic attacks that come from an untreated chronic levels of anxiety can deter people from enjoying their lives’ fully.
As a hypnotist I help people shift away from that anxious reality to a new reality that imagines themselves as confident, clear minded and happy.
“It is all in your mind” is the truth and that is a good thing because if “it is in your mind” you can change it.
The process is an investigative hypnosis treatment to find the cause of the issue and then to create new thoughts, feelings and therefore new behaviors that are unconscious and will be demonstrated automatically in the person’s life.
If one is anxious that feeling started with a thought, then the body created a corresponding and natural response—fight or flight response. That response typically is never satisfied and the body stays in that heightened state. What do I mean by “never satisfied”? Well back in the ancient times if you were sitting in your tent on the prairie and a cougar approached your family you would feel the rush of adrenals and spring into action to defend…your body would expend the energy being created to fight and then afterward the parasympathetic system brings you back into balance.
However in modern times, we can get activated (like in traffic) but we just sit there and stew and the body stays in that heightened state. That is how chronic anxiety starts. Hypnosis activates the parasympathetic system and brings the body back into a calm and resting state.
Alter your perspective of your current situation and transform anxiety, anger, or addictions into calmness, confidence, happiness and freedom. You have the power within you to do this and hypnosis is the tool.
If you are ready to get what is in your head transformed into something product, positive and purposeful and have been unsuccessful so far, then hypnosis might be a great alternative. Give us a call 972-974-2094 or schedule a free phone consultation here.
