HEALING EMOTIONS WITH HYPNOTHERAPY
“Healing doesn’t mean the damage never existed. It means the damage no longer controls our life.”
Over the years, we’ve realised that people who struggle with substance abuse, various addictions and anxiety problems often report traumatic childhood memories. Fortunately, there are tools that are able to help them process these traumatic memories and overcome the negativity that comes with it, read on to understand more. Emotional pain If you’ve experienced an extremely stressful or disturbing event that’s left you feeling helpless, overwhelmed, isolated and emotionally out of control, you may have been through what we call a psychological trauma. While some people are able to process the traumatic experience and live with it, some people aren’t able to, leading to the development of PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder). Psychological trauma can leave you struggling with upsetting emotions, memories, and anxiety that won’t go away. It can also leave you feeling numb, disconnected, and unable to trust others. While many trauma experience comes from sudden one-time events such as major accidents, violent attacks and assaults (especially if it was unexpected and happened in childhood). There are some commonly overlooked causes, such as surgery (especially in the first 3 years of life), the sudden death of someone close, the breakup of a significant relationship, or a humiliating or deeply disappointing experience. The symptoms might include: shock, denial or disbelief, difficulty concentrating, anger, anxiety, fear, sadness, hopelessness, guilt etc. While traumatic events can happen to anyone, you’re more likely to be traumatised by an event if you’re already under a heavy stress load, have recently suffered a series of losses, or have been traumatised before—especially if the earlier trauma occurred in childhood. Experiencing trauma in childhood can result in a severe and long-lasting effect. Seek for help Emotional pain is when there are no apparent scars seen but they are felt. Deep inside. It is caused by various reasons. Many people believe that emotional pain is incurable or heals with time. These are completely wrong perceptions. It is important to realise that it is not the passage of time itself that heals but what happens to the memories and the perception of those memories. Many people who have experienced trauma do not passively heal over time. Emotional scar tissues may develop, coupled with diminished functionality, but that is coping, not healing. Distressing or shocking events that have not been fully processed or integrated can generate toxic thoughts, feelings, and behaviours. While some people bear no lasting effects from such experiences, many others form mental imprints that generate feelings of fear and anxiety. Remember that the belief, perception, or memory that formed after a traumatic experience is what actually causes trauma, not the experience itself. The key to resolving emotional trauma is to process and work on the negative perceptions and beliefs about the self. Seek help when necessary. Hypnosis helps healing emotions The body is designed to heal itself. By directing the subconscious mind to focus on positive goals and beliefs, it’ll produce more natural resources to help you cope. Reminding yourself that the event is in the past and that you are now safe is not enough. Subconscious acceptance and relearning is essential to emotional healing, while resistance and inability to accept and release the past causes emotional suffering. Hypnotherapy is the most proficient tool known today for cleaning the mind from these negative patterns. The reason that hypnotherapy produces such wondrous results is because the therapist works towards changing your negative belief patterns, and form new positive, healthy beliefs about the self.
