Lately, there has been a lot of emphasis on positivity – the human practice of being positive. For the most part, this is a very good thing. Very few of us would advocate going around with a large, black cloud hanging over our heads.
On the other hand, unbridled positivity can become a bit of a problem, if it is used to cover up useful emotions that help us connect with how we are truly feeling inside.
Sooner or later, we will all explode if we bottle up our feelings without first processing them. In order to be genuinely happy, and true to our authentic selves, we need to understand that our responses to present day events are inextricably linked to the way we have emotionally interpreted the past.
Sometimes we can be surprised by our reaction to something – taken aback by strong physical sensations and intense emotions that seem to come out of the blue. However, there is actually no surprise whatsoever. If we find ourselves responding in a manner that seems hard to explain, there is almost certainly a reason – even if we are unable to consciously identify what that reason is.
That is why hypnosis is such an incredible therapeutic technique. When a person is placed into a deep, relaxing trance – the subconscious mind – is open and receptive. A hypnotherapist can then skillfully take a person back in time, to help identify traumatic events that may have triggered a painful response in a person’s past.
Since our emotional reactions are strongly tied to our subconscious mind, it is very difficult if not impossible to deliberately access the reasons behind a person’s powerful feelings without the aid of hypnosis. Once the trigger is identified, the hypnotherapist can go on to assist the individual to re-frame the event and move forward again.
At this point, having resolved the problematic issue, the person is ready to see life anew. Old habits that were holding them back are now easy to identify and fix. Positive affirmations can be especially helpful, used to build on suggestions that are introduced to the subconscious mind during a hypnosis session. In fact, many hypnosis clients note that their lives seem full of possibility following their hypnotherapy, a result of the positive energy that is now flowing easily.
So next time you find yourself struggling to cope emotionally, and can’t figure out why, consider the option of hypnosis. This safe, natural, non-invasive therapeutic technique can restore balance and positivity to your life. As I’m sure you are aware, a positive state of mind leads to additional positive experiences – a testament to the powerful energy force that surrounds each and every one of us.
Not only will you benefit from a more positive outlook, but those close to you such as family members and children will also notice how much more relaxed and peaceful you appear – even when things are not going quite as planned. A positive mindset offers a protective barrier against stress and increases your overall happiness. Positivity is a wonderful gift that you richly deserve.
