Why Hypnosis Is Better For Stress Than Meditating

Stress Is The Life Killer

Stress is the greatest problem for people in the modern world, and it’s much worse than just health problems such as Strokes, heart attacks and hypertension that are brought on by too much stress for way too long. Stress impacts EVERYTHING. 90% of all illness has its roots in stress.

Stress kills our libido, impacts on fertility, our enjoyment of life; stress causes disturbed emotions of anger, rage, sadness and depression; stress makes us clumsy; stress causes us to make mistakes and worst of all, stress makes us think stupid thoughts (we become “stress stupid”) and it cuts off the internal flow to our creative and innate talents and abilities.

It is clear that we ALL need to de-stress, whether we are teenagers who suffer from acne and migraines as a result of stress, men and women in “anger management”, authors who suffer from writer’s block even, business people who burst a blood vessel, or parents at home who aren’t enjoying their kids but end up screaming at them all the time instead.

So how do we de-stress, and urgently, and FAST?

Why Stress & Meditation Are At Odds

Many hold that meditating and meditation alone is the answer to stress.
Meditating and meditation is the act of entering into altered states of consciousness, to widen our conscious awareness and to re-connect with the super subconsciousness of our energy mind, our subconscious mind, subconsciousness if you like.

This does not happen when we are stressed – a person under stress is like a TV that isn’t tuning properly. Everything is disturbed, mad, doesn’t fit together, there is no clarity, life is full of static.

Trying to meditate when you are stressed is like trying to be romantic with […]

Quest for sleep

Quest for sleep

An insomniac’s quest for sleep

Sleeping in the sticky, summer heat is trouble enough for most, but for the 10 million people in the UK affected by insomnia it is even harder. Here one woman who has struggled with sleep for years tells how she copes with sleepless nights.

It was while lying awake one night, after three days without sleep, that Anna Musgrave considered her most extreme option.

No sleep for days on end had become a bit of a routine. Usually by day three her body was so exhausted that sleep came, but not on this occasion.

She nudged her boyfriend in a discreet attempt to wake him. She could no longer bear being awake. The herbal teas, the pills, were not working. She was desperate.

“He offered to punch me out and I remember thinking that wouldn’t be such a bad idea,” she says.

Anna, 28, from Bere Ferrers, in Devon, has suffered from sleeping problems since the age of six. It is something that runs in her family and she believes it is partly down to them moving around a lot when she was young.

‘Vicious circle’

One Christmas she remembers her excitement being shattered after being told Father Christmas didn’t visit children who were not asleep by midnight.

“My main problem is anxiety around sleep, not sleep itself,” says Anna. “I have an emotional reaction to being woken up.”

It’s one of anger and desperation because she then panics she will not be able to fall asleep again. Noise, pressure at work and personal problems are the main factors which have disrupted her sleep throughout her adult life.

About Hypnotherapy

About Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy harnesses and redirects the power of the mind helping to overcome many different types of problem.

The use of hypnosis is not new, having been used in one form or another for many hundreds of years dating back to the ancient Egyptians who are believed to have used it in their ‘sleep temples’.

Sometimes through a particular trauma or series of traumas, or sometimes through learned or conditioned behaviour the mind can get locked into an undesirable cycle, producing repeating patterns of negative behaviour which can result in problems such as: anxiety, lack of confidence, depression, phobia, compulsion, anger etc.-

Although this behaviour may have been appropriate to the initial situation, if it tends to stay with the person and carries on repeating itself (to the point where it is driving their approach to life), then it may be very difficult for them to break this cycle.

Hypnosis is a very effective tool for helping to change these undesirable cycles.

H Helping and healing yourself
Y You are in control
P Puts you in touch with the unconscious and your higher mind
N Not sleep, but a relaxed state
O Only as far as you want to go
S Safely allowing you therapeutic insights
I Intensified attention and receptiveness
S Staying focused on issues
