Hypnosis – well-being through self-help
Over the years, mystical or psychic powers, clairvoyance, the occult, delving into the 'spiritual world' and also hypnotism, hypnotists, hypnotherapy and self-hypnosis regularly get 'unfavourable press'; sometimes just the mention of these topics draws scepticism, derision and claims of scam or fraud. However, in reality, learning how to use self-hypnotic techniques correctly can improve many aspects of one's life – physically as well as mentally. But first, some common myths about hypnosis in general need dispelling.
However, it is important to be wary of those who make bold claims about their hypnotic cures for diseases like cancer, for instance. They are scam artists usually with no background in psychology or medicine, bringing a healthy, natural and legitimate form of treatment into disrepute.
Qualified professionals don't 'cure' anything; what they or the techniques they teach do is help you control how you behave or manage certain symptoms including pain. A typical hypnotic session might involve a live consultation or by self-hypnosis, listening privately to a recording of the hypnotist's voice, inducing you to think, for example, about one of your favourite places; you will be gently led through learning how to visualise that place when feelings of hurt or anxiety arise. At the end, you 'awake' from the experience feeling refreshed and re-energised and ready to tackle the problem you want to confront and banish.
Research confirms that 'mind-body' techniques can promote well-being and relieve, if not actually cure certain common conditions and ailments. It's also a fact that people have inexplicably recovered from life-threatening incurable diseases (including cancer) – to the amazement of doctors and families. Can 'mind over matter' be that powerful? If it can be, then could the effects of self-hypnosis be playing a part? For many they do; it's even possible to become naturally attractive to women – if you just let your mind do the work and not your body!
The key to open the door to your 'inner mind' or subconscious, whether through hypnosis, self-hypnosis, meditation, yoga or prayer is the ability to first relax your body completely before attempting to clear your mind of stressful thoughts. Surprisingly, many people who have a genuine desire to do this, have trouble in responding to certain types of stimulus such as listening to quiet music, a soothing voice, sound waves which enhance brain activity, induce sleep etc.
The best thing is to experiment with different types of program. You need to be able to achieve a state of relaxation and inner peace before you can respond to further suggestion, and you need to find a way that works for you.
If you're still unsure about hypnosis and self-hypnotic techniques and whether it's right for you, then ask your question without any obligation to Mark Tyrell, a leading British hypnotherapist; put any fears or apprehension you may have about hypnosis and hypnotherapy, to rest.
