Controlling and Managing Your Emotions & Feelings With Hypnosis
What is Hypnosis.
Hypnosis is total focused concentration. Hypnosis is the ability to access your subconscious mind, put aside your Critical Faculty (Critical Factor) in a temporary way and accept positive suggestions.
What is an emotion?
Emotions are body states.
Basic emotions: joy, contempt, surprise, sadness, disgust, anger and fear.
What are feelings?
Interpretations of those body states (emotions).
So, emotions are more related the our body. Feelings more related to our mental interpretation.
If someone is trying to hurt us … we might experience “fear”, emotion, body reaction … and feel horrible, feeling, mind interpretation.
The power of hypnosis is:
- better communication with your subconscious,
- ability to accept positive suggestions.
Our emotions and feelings can helps us to live better o could create problems. It is all matter of how we deal with them, how we manage them, how we interpret them … and here is where hypnosis can be a very powerful tool.
What if you could feel good in situations where before you felt bad? What do you think that would mean for you?
Your responses reside in your subconscious mind. It controls them and it is responsible for feeding the feelings to you at a conscious level.
You can’t just tell yourself to be happy and suddenly you are filled with joy. In fact the opposite usually occurs as your subconscious mind reinforces the initial emotion and thoughts with more of the same!
So how do you manage this?
Well since your responses reside in your subconscious mind, it stands to reason that if you want to change them you need to gain access to your subconscious and reprogram it – just like a computer!
Through the use of hypnosis or self-hypnosis you can easily and quickly gain access to the subconscious mind.
For example a hypnotist or hypnotherapist can take a memory, or an interpretation of a memory, that has some very bad responses connected to it and neutralize those emotions or feelings. Then he will re-connect your old memory with new positive emotions or positive feelings.
Some timess you can use a combination of Hypnosis and Neuro-Linguistic Programming(NLP). The positive affects of these techniques leaves you free from old memories that block you from moving forward in your life and also reprogram your mind to feel optimistic and hopeful when confronted with similar situations in the present and future.
This is also how phobias are dealt with and explaining this process should give you some idea of the power and benefits of using it on other emotional issues.
Lets say you have a real fear of dogs. Now everyone knows that a fear of dogs is irrational in most cases and has no foundation in truth. Normally a dog is not going to hurt, seeing a dog does not mean danger.
First the hypnotist will relax your mind and body and then get you to think of a happy scene filled with lovely beautiful creatures that you like. Say for instance you love little fluffy kittens.
He will immerse you in the image and guide you to the beauty of the animal and evoke kindly, loving emotions. Then he will ask you to think of a dog. He may get you to put roller-skates on it and watch it trying to walk or get you to imagine it has a funny face or kindly or friendly action.
In this way he will neutralize the negative reactions you currently hold about the dogs Then he will connect the previous image of the kittens, and thus the positive emotions associated with it, to the image of the funny dog.
You will also be guided to see the beauty of a dog. In simple terms, the idea is to interchange or create new positive reactions when you see or think about a dog.
Likewise the emotional response to any situation, circumstance, person or event can be reversed to whatever positive emotional response you want. Such is the power of hypnosis or hypnotherapy and the creativity of your mind. You will merely learn to react in a different, more positive, way and through modern mental techniques you can learn to do it in any way you desire.
