How Hypnosis Helps Reduce Stress
Most people can tell you instantly 3 to 5 things that are causing them stress. This shows three important facts. Firstly, almost everyone is under some degree of stress. The second important issue is knowing what is causing the stress. The third, and perhaps the most important element, is that they want to remove or reduce their stress level.
Hypnosis has been called a state of hyper suggestibility. This means that while in a hypnotic state, your mind is receptive to positive suggestions which allows you to change the way you respond to various situations in your life.
It’s impossible to ever remove all stress from your life, although this may be true, it is possible to change the way you respond to stressful situations. To understand how we can change our perception of a given thought, or action, think about the following story of deep snow below.
The Deep Snow Story
It seems too often that we allow outside stimulants to rule our lives. We’ve all heard of people saying that “stress pushed me back into smoking” or that “the kids made me eat”. It’s a lot easier to use another person or event as the excuse for failure, rather than accepting the fact that we have the ability to change the way we respond to any given situation or event.
I can recall, years back when there was a terrible snowstorm. One of the neighbours was out trying to get his car out of the driveway and was cursing up a storm. Another neighbour walked out to her porch and said “I’m not going to make it to work today, but there’s a good book I’ve been wanting to read.” And then there was the young boy on the street who saw all the snow and yelled “Thank you God!” as he jumped into the snow with joy. Each one of these three people encountered the same stimulant, since the snow wasn’t any deeper on one side of the street than the other.
One person viewed it as a tragedy, another thought “Oh well”, and the last one saw it as a blessing. You, too, can change the way you view any situation or circumstance to ensure your total success. It doesn't matter what caused you to feel stressed in the past, you have the ability to change the way you perceive events, people and circumstances. Everything comes down to choice, you can choose to feel out of control and stressed, or you can decide to take back control of your life. Stress cannot control you.
My job can be very demanding and I was always stressed out. I had reached a point where I was reacting badly to everything at work. I also started resenting my boss and co-workers. I felt a sense of dread having to go to work everyday and I was on the verge of quitting. I felt depressed having to go to work everyday, even though I had a good job.
After just a few sessions with Kary, I started feeling more positive about my job and co-workers and I am able to handle work situations without getting overly stressed out. I am currently in the midst of busy season at work and I'm dealing with it successfully. My mindset it much more positive and I don't let things get to me the way they used to. Hypnotherapy has help me successfully manage my stress in a very short period of time. My sessions with Kary were very relaxing and I always felt happier afterwards.
Just try it. It really works!
I was struggling so much with IBS symptoms related to stress. This lead to persistent inflammation which is very detrimental to health physically and emotionally.
I regularly listen to my hypnotherapy sessions that Kary has shared with me to calm and centre my mind and subconscious mind. This has been so life changing for me!
Kary taught me about how very powerful our subconscious mind is and how we can literally heal ourselves. Our body is so intelligent and powerful, our attitude and energy contributes directly to our health mentally and physically. Kary taught me many techniques for managing major and minor everyday stressors and this has proved to be an invaluable tool dealing with my cancer prognosis now.
