Self hypnosis works under scary circumstances.
Read Connie’s story of a MRI experience that connected her with her departed dogs and brought her peace through self hypnosis.
Connie came for hypnosis about 10 years ago, maybe longer. She wanted to connect to creativity and her natural problem solving capability. One of the techniques we used was to have her imagine riding an elevator down to the place in her mind where she could feel comfortable, secure and peaceful. And, the place where she could create a new story, gain perspective or find the answer to a problem.
We had several successful sessions over the years and then I didn’t hear from her for a while. She called once about a year ago to check in and tell me what her kids were up to. About a month ago she called to share with me how she used the self hypnosis she learned to overcome a scary situation.
She is fine now. But, there were some symptoms that the doctor felt an MRI would reveal the problem. Or, and even better, reveal there was no problem (it was the latter).
While she was lying in that space and subjected to the noises, she got a little afraid. Then, she just as quickly remembered the technique and began breathing deeply and imagining she was riding down the elevators from 10 down to one….
At one she imaged being at a cabin the woods with a peaceful path that lead to a tranquil pond. As she walked the path she fell into a deep trance (because the technician reported talking to her without a response). In the new state of mind she felt, literally felt, a softness on her legs and imaging in her mind’s eye looking down and seeing her dear departed dogs at her feet. This was so comforting to her and she new she was okay.
When the machine stopped she came out of trance and was feeling very relaxed. The technician reported to her that she had never seen anyone come out of the procedure so relaxed and happy.
That is a really cool story about the power over you thoughts and feelings, mind over matter.
