Changing your self-esteem through a carefully thought out progression of steps is important to improving your outlook on life. In order to be balanced in your self-growth, however, it may require a different type of therapy.
Hypnosis Can Help More Than You Think
The process of hypnosis has been found effective on bad habits, like smoking and overeating. In order to approach life in a more beneficial manner, it helps to have the backup of a process like hypnosis. Not everyone believes in the effectiveness of hypnosis, but in the end the process has helped many people to turn around their negative self-talk or self-destructive habits, making it possible to live life for the better.
Accepted Therapies Don’t Always Work
There are various ways to deal with weight loss efforts or attempts to quit smoking. However, chewing gum and joining a support group can only go so far. While hypnosis is off the grid of “normal” therapies, it still can be very effective for those who need a different approach to changing and improving their lives.
Self-Growth Starts With Reachable Goals
In order to try hypnosis on yourself, it helps to understand the process. It is key to create a goal that is manageable and measurable. A reasonable goal is also helpful in working toward a more balanced self-growth and journey of self-improvement.
From there, it is important to find a negative statement that you believe and turn it to be positive. Make it simple and easy to say in less than five seconds. From there, it is important to get comfortable on a soft surface, inhale while counting to seven, hold for a count of two and exhale on a count of 11. Visualize the breath going through the 10 parts of your body and relaxing the entire body.
Visualize Your Goal, Bring it To Life
After you are relaxed, it is important to bring that statement to life in your mind. Imagine it as alive and a true experience you are living through at that moment. See yourself achieving all things positive. Make sure to let go of any negative or limiting thoughts during this process. Finally, spend up to 30 seconds feeling grateful that you have accomplished your goal. Keep your emotions on track and feel strongly, and your goals will be achieved. This is similar to the process used by Native Americans to bring rain.
The Benefits of Hypnosis as a Therapy
Hypnosis is cheaper than comparative therapies and also easy to accomplish with limited equipment. This process can be done effectively and repeated as necessary to help you move forward as you may expand on preliminary goals.
This process can even be done with friends in a relaxed setting. Get together with a group and set a simple yet measurable goal. It is important to let the group know that this is more than NLP party tricks. In the end, you can all benefit from such an activity. You can see how you can live a positive life in today’s environment. You can provide that same ability to everyone in the group. Not bad when some consider it a party trick.
