When you hear the word hypnosis, people are on guard, they think that it’s either fake or something dangerous. It’s not as dangerous as ‘Get Out’ would have you believe (when used in a positive way) and it does work. Let me explain.
You remember in an earlier post (read here) when I mentioned that I was suffering from some negative thoughts? Well, a few days later I couldn’t shake those thoughts.
I decided to train my brain to let go of those thoughts, in other words, I hypnotized my self. That’s all hypnosis is making your brain do what you want it to do.
Now just to clear up somethings, you can’t unknowingly be hypnotized (like in ‘Get Out’). You cant have an idle conversation then someone snaps their fingers and you are at their whim. Some people can’t even be hypnotized. You need to be in a relaxed state and a willing participant. Also, you can snap yourself out of it It’s Your Brain!
After my hypnosis session, now when I have a negative thought I’m taken back to my session and it calms and relaxes me and before I know it the thought is gone. According to WebMD, Hypnosis or Hypnotherapy (the correct term) has been shown to help with..
- Quitting Smoking
- irritable bowel Syndrom
If you’re interested in trying I recommend Training Your Mind To Let Go Of Thoughts That Don’t Serve You by Suzanne Robichaud. It’s the one I used and it works wonders, remember to leave yourself open to the idea of change and it will come to you.
