Hypnosis is a procedure where a hypnotherapist calms you down through various methods and puts you into a hypnotic trance-like state in order to access the subconscious part of the mind; which is the most active part; in order to target the root cause of your behaviour and change your way of thinking. Hypnotherapy has the ability to make you understand why you feel and behave the way that you do in order to help change those thoughts and develop new ways of thinking.
During a hypnosis session, you will be extremely relaxed and intensely focused which will make your mind open to new thoughts. This process can be used to achieve many goals or get rid of bad habits such as smoking or losing weight. Furthermore, hypnosis works on your subconscious mind which holds many information and beliefs from your past experiences, emotions and other factors that drive your choices and actions. Your subconscious mind works non-stop in order to protect you and keep you safe, which doesn’t always mean that it is acting in your best interest. For example, if you have been cheated on or betrayed in previous relationships, in your new relationship you might act more clingy and protective which could drive your partner away. Hypnosis will help change and unlink these thought processes in your brain and replace it with a new one.
Furthermore, there is plenty of evidence that hypnosis helps people combat anxiety, relieve depression and also kick bad habits such as smoking and overeating. Researchers have also managed to identify specific parts of your brain that are changed during hypnosis. Using MRI, scientists were able to see physical changes in the brain as the participants showed control over their perceptions, and had dissociations between their mental awareness and their actions. The participants were seen to use fewer mental resources when they were performing and engaging in beneficial activities, which means that it takes much less effort to engage in beneficial activities such as eating healthy as compared to before. For relationships issues, hypnosis can be used to turn off the automatic thought process that you have had before which was always holding you back and help you overcome the negative behavioral patterns that your brain relied on in the past. This will help you change your actions and thought processes for the better and increase your levels of intimacy.
There are many people who are adults however, when they get emotionally triggered, they will revert back to a child state of mind. For example, if you come home from work and your wife isn’t home to give you your dinner, you will panic and turn that feeling into anger. This is an example of a triggering situation which means that your body has a strong physiological reaction to the event. When you come back home and do not see your wife, you will start breathing heavily, start fearing and panicking and your mind will start picturing negative scenarios such as “she's having an affair” or “she might be in danger somewhere.” You will start feeling angry and your judgments will get affected by it.
This physiological response that you get in these scenarios are acknowledged by the science of hypnotherapy and the information will be used to do an age regression back to the memory that has been triggered in your mind causing you to react intensely like this. Hypnotherapy is truly a mind and body therapy because both your physical and emotional reactions are used to determine why you are having this reaction in the first place. Hypnotherapy helps us realize that we all have memory banks that are stored in the unconscious part of our brain and to make use of that by comparing current situations in life and comparing it with a memory of how and why we related to this memory in the past when we were a child. Furthermore, hypnotherapy can also help you with toxic relationships. Unhelpful and negative patterns of thinking and behaviours can be addressed during a session which will allow you to mentally move on and reconnect with your own needs. You can rediscover your strength and ability to cope with the emotions you feel in your toxic relationship.
To sum up, hypnotherapy can help your relationship by helping you deal with negative emotions much more effectively as it will tap into your subconscious mind and change your patterns of thinking which will also change your actions. It will also help you enjoy better communication with people in your lives. Hypnotherapy will also help you regain your feelings for love, passion and romance which could also improve sexual experiences with your partner.
Hypnosis is very effective in attacking the root causes of your problems and changing your pattern of thinking on the subconscious level which will automatically make you feel like a new person who is much stronger and more able to deal with problems not just in relationships but also in everything else. Although there are plenty of ways that you can practice self-hypnosis, the most effective way is to contact a hypnotherapist for a session which will be tailored to you and your needs.
