Using Hypnosis to Stop Procrastinating

August 1st, 2013 § Comments Off on Using Hypnosis to Stop Procrastinating § permalink

I’m sure you’ll understand me when I tell you that I’ve wanted to write an article about using hypnosis to stop procrastinating for such a long time, but I just keep putting it off! Procrastination – that annoying habit of consistently putting off doing things that you know you have to do. It happens to all of us from time to time, but for some, it can turn into more than just an occasional annoyance. It can become problematic to the point that it interferes with one’s ability to finish school, to work dependably, or to fulfill one’s potential.

What exactly is procrastination?

“According to psychologist Professor Clarry Lay, a prominent writer on procrastination, procrastination occurs when there’s ’a temporal gap between intended behavior and enacted behavior.’ That is, procrastination is occurring when there’s a significant time period between when people intend to do a job, and when they actually do it.” – Overcoming Procrastination

Perhaps one of the most frustrating things about procrastination is the fact that we can’t blame anyone but ourselves for not following through with our obligations. This fact may be to our detriment, but it is also to our benefit. Because no one else is responsible for our procrastination, we have the absolute power to diminish and/or eliminate procrastination on our own. This is where hypnosis comes in. » Read the rest of this entry «

Treating Compulsive Gambling with Hypnosis

June 3rd, 2013 § 2 comments § permalink

Treating compulsive gambling behaviors is easy with hypnosis. Using hypnosis, we can access the subconscious mind and create alternative behaviors that work for you, not against you.

Taking a chance on winning the Lotto now and then is harmless, but it is a gamble. We take gambles all the time. The shelves at our stores are lined with products promising us relief from a variety of discomforts, once we buy the product. We’ll feel better, live longer, look younger, and people will like us more if we just take this pill, drive this car, read this book, or watch this movie. Life is a gamble, but for some, gambling becomes an addiction.

Statistically speaking, gambling just doesn’t pay. Every now and then you might get lucky and win a few bucks, or cup full of coins, but the payoff rarely matches what was spent trying to win in the first place. The fantasy of “winning the big one” can really get its hooks into some people, and they find themselves risking everything for that big pay off that’s just around the corner. All reason is lost, perspective is skewed, and priorities falsely assigned when the gambling bug hits you. » Read the rest of this entry «

Self-Hypnosis is Easy and Fun!

You may be interested to know that we all experience self-hypnosis several times each day. Wouldn’t it be nice to be aware of the ways in which you are hypnotizing yourself, so that you can deliberately choose which habits and behaviors are running the show? Learning how to use self-hypnosis deliberately can do just that!

When we talk about hypnosis, we’re talking about the co-mingling of the conscious mind and the sub-conscious mind, as if there are two minds. Well of course there is only one mind, and so it’s more accurate to speak of conscious processes and sub-conscious processes. A conscious process is something you do, or think about, consciously. Conversely, a sub-conscious process is something you do automatically, kind of like being on autopilot. Hypnosis is a process of bringing the two together so that you’re in charge of those automatic behaviors. » Read the rest of this entry «
