Dwelling on stressful events hurts. It not only causes inflammation in the body (LINK) but serves to reinforce the neural pathways in our brains associated with the event. In other words, dwelling on an event is like traveling back and forth on a trail in a meadow. As we travel back and forth, the trail becomes more prominent, easier to find, and in the case of our neural pathways, easier to stay “stuck” in.
As we dwell on, or re-live, an unwanted event, we make it more difficult on ourselves to snap out of it, and get on with what’s happening in the present moment. Usually these types of events are associated with negative feelings and will trigger an anxiety response at a subconscious level. Many people are aware that are stuck in a cycle of negative thinking, but don’t know what to do about it.
Our subconscious minds do not differentiate between living an actual event, and the re-living of the event in our minds. Because we can trigger the fight or flight response just by thinking about an event, it is crucial to learn how to turn off the cycle of negative anxiety provoking thoughts and feelings.
Hypnosis is an excellent tool for this very purpose. By accessing the subconscious mind through hypnosis and anchoring a state of relaxation, you can train yourself to access and maintain a state of calmness, and condition your mind to focus on pleasant thoughts, and/or focus on the present moment. By training your mind to focus on pleasant thoughts and feelings, you create a new trail in that meadow, or, you direct your thoughts to a different set of neural pathways that result in better feeling emotions. Not only will you feel better emotionally, but you will effectively minimize the physical inflammation you may experience as a result of dwelling on stressful events.
You CAN control your thoughts and feelings, and hypnosis is a very effective way to condition your mind to work FOR you. Take control, you’ll feel better emotionally and physically!
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 «

The largest percentage of clients coming to visit me at Intuitive Hypnosis in Portland, Oregon for sports related requests, tend to be those wishing to improve their golf game. However, hypnosis can be equally useful with all kinds of individual and competitive sports. I have worked with clients who successfully improved their performance levels in competitive ice skating, triathlon, varsity softball, horseback riding, K-9 competition, and more. The most successful of clients and athletes also tend to be those who have learned to “see” themselves as successful. They have learned to master the psychology of their individual and/or team sport. » Read the rest of this entry «
December 28th, 2011 § Comments Off on Using Hypnosis To Keep That New Year’s Resolution § permalink
If you’re like most of us, at some point in your life you’ve made a New Year’s Resolution, but didn’t keep it despite your best intentions. January is a busy time of year at the office of Intuitive Hypnosis because many people have discovered that using hypnosis greatly increases their chance of success in keeping those resolutions.
The difference between making and keeping a resolution can feel like a constant battle between our conscious mind, with all it’s desires and positive intentions, and our subconscious mind, full of programming and conditioned responses. It’s easy to get frustrated when we lose the momentum we started out with. Hypnosis provides the opportunity to bridge the gap between the conscious and subconscious minds. Using targeted suggestions in a relaxed mental state, you can take control of the programs in your subconscious mind and create the changes you desire. » Read the rest of this entry «
