Just Trying to Relax

For most of us, that is what we are trying to do, just trying to relax. It sounds simple enough but all we have to do is look around at all the people who are stressed and if your reading this maybe all you have to do is look in the mirror.

So why is just trying to relax so difficult for us, all you have to do is google it and you will find so many ways to help with specific problems. In truth that is one of the problems, we all view things differently. Plus, we mean slightly different things even though we may use the same words.

If I asked you to describe an emotion without using another emotion or feeling to describe it, you will find it exceedingly difficult. Stop for a moment and try it, describe what love is but be logical and factual. If you do it, you will see the difficultly and what you do come up with, do you think that is the list other people would come up with?

Now when I asked you do think of love, what type of love did you think off. Love for one-self, love for your parents, your children, your spouse, your pets. Maybe it was love for a deity or maybe physical love?

That was only one word but straight away we can go into different directions and then how do we perceive it. What does it me to us and what emotions do we attach to those thoughts or meanings? That is how we see life on a daily basis.

Something comes into our awareness and we think, what does this mean to us, then already in our subconscious we have programs that will align emotions to this. It does this because our subconscious is lazy, very powerful but lazy.

So that is a reason why you may have tried something in the past that has worked for others but not you. We are all unique and when some programs get to precise it can create a problem.

Its easy enough to relax or at least partially in most cases. I am not talking about panic attacks, you can more about them in other posts. In my next post ill explain how you can relax in simple general steps and explain why it works.

Changing Negative Thoughts with Hypnosis

How to Change Negative thoughts with Hypnosis

There are many programs out there with many techniques to change how you think. Some are good and some are completely rubbish. As a clinical hypnotist I want to get to the reason and go from there.

It might be real, or it might be imagined, or it could be your perception on an event from your past causing you problems. If you believe it then its real for you. However, it affects you is how we deal with the problem.

No matter the cause or the severity we can help. We help you see it differently by reframing it for you or changing what it means to you. There are techniques and we tailor them to suit you. Most times its between 3 and 4 sessions, maybe 6 for traumatic events.

If you have any questions about changing negative thoughts or what Hypnosis is please call for more information or see our home page, Dublin Hypnosis Dun Laoghaire.

In response to external influences, people create beliefs. Some of these are helpful and some are not so helpful. Several assumptions that can interfere with self-confidence and positive ways of thinking are:

I must always be successful at every challenge that I undertake. Well this assumption is a totally unrealistic. In life each person has his strengths and his weaknesses and while it is important to learn to do the best it is more important to learn to accept yourself as being human. Let yourself feel good about what you are good at, accept the fact that you do not know everything, and you do not need to.

I must be perfect, and loved by everyone, and satisfy everyone. Again, this assumption is a totally unrealistic assumption. All human beings are less than perfect. It is well advised to develop personal standards and values that are not very dependent on the approval of other people.

Everything that happened to me in the past remains in control of my feelings and behaviours in the present. While it is true that your confidence was especially vulnerable to external influences when you were a child as you gain maturity appreciation and point of view on what those influences have been.

In doing so, you can choose which influences you will continue to allow to influence your life. You do not have to be helpless based on what happened in the past

Self-Esteem with Self-Hypnosis

How to Build Your Self-Esteem with Self-Hypnosis

If you have read some of my other post you may have heard me say before that at times its not about finding something but it’s about getting rid of the negative images and films that we call memory. If it’s a bad memory what will happen if we do it again? Will it be dangerous, will we look foolish and what will other people think? In other words, judgment.

There is no point looking for inner peace anywhere else except within yourself. You do not need to travel and pay someone a fortune all you need to do is change the negative into positive. Imagine having happy thoughts on a constant basis, would you be happy? And being happy is what we really want.

If you have any questions about Self-Esteem or what Hypnosis is please call for more information or see our home page, Dublin Hypnosis Dun Laoghaire.

A social phobia is a fear of interacting with others on a social level. Examples would be talking in front of other people, waiting in line at the checkout imagining others are looking at you, or even fear of talking on the phone.

Self-confidence is a feeling that allows people to have positive, yet realistic views of themselves and their circumstances. Self-confident people have confidence in their own abilities, have a general sense of control over their lives, and believe that, within reason, they will be able to do what they want and need to do.

Confidence is a perspective that is accomplished through experiences. When a person experiences success, that person will tend to expect to be successful. And that very expectation will cause a feeling of self-confidence.

Imagine A young lady who is scared to death of being in high places wants to learn to dive into a swimming pool from an extremely high diving board. So, she finds a diving coach who asks her to take a jump into the pool from the first rung of the ladder going up to the high diving board. The first step of the ladder is not awfully high, so the young lady feels confident, and she dives from that rung, and lands in the water unharmed.

Next, the athletic coach has her take a jump from the second rung of the ladder, and so forth. I assume that you see what’s going on here. With each new step she takes as she climbs higher up the ladder, since the girl was able to jump without fear or harm, and the next higher step is only slightly higher than the last, the fear factor is negligible, and the girl expects to be successful. When she dives in and is unhurt, the girl’s self-confidence increases, and her expectation of success on the next step up the ladder increases.

If a person who has a long history of success and feelings of confidence does fail, they still tend to expect success the next time out. Conversely, when a person who is weak in the self-confidence department fails, they tend to lose confidence, and expect failure, which can become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Having true self-confidence doesn’t mean that individuals will be able to do everything. People, who have true self-confidence, usually have expectations that are practical. Even when some of their expectations are not met, they continue to be confident and to accept themselves.

People, who are not self-confident, tend to depend excessively on the approval of others in order to feel self-confidence. They usually don’t take risks because of the fear of failure. They make light of themselves and tend to discount compliments that they receive.

Conversely, confident people are willing to risk the disapproval of others because they generally have confidence in their own prowess. They acknowledge themselves; and they don’t feel they have to conform in order to be admired.

Just because one feels self-confidence in one or more parts of their life, doesn’t mean that they will feel overconfident in every single part of their life. For example, a person might feel optimistic about their athletic prowess, but not feel confident as far as members of the opposite sex are involved, such as in a dating situation, or social relationships.

So how is Self-confidence developed Initially?

Many powerful and effective truths have an impact on the development of self-confidence. Parents’ attitudes are critical to the way children think about themselves, especially in their early years. When parents provide admiration, children receive a solid foundation for self-esteem.

If one or both parents are excessively demanding or critical, or if they are overprotective and discourage moves toward independence, children may be fated to believe they are incapable, inadequate, or inferior.

However, if parents encourage a child’s moves toward self-reliance, and they are not overly critical when the child makes mistakes, the child will learn to accept herself, and will be on the way to developing self-confidence.

A lack of confidence is not necessarily related to a lack of ability. A lack of self-confidence is often the result of centering much too strongly on the ridiculous expectancy of other people, friends and parents. The control of peers can be more powerful than that of parents in shaping the feelings about one’s self.

Building Confidence with Hypnosis

Increase Confidence using Hypnosis

Think of something that you do well, it doesn’t matter what it is as long as you do it well. If your left along you can perform quit well and at ease. Now what happens if someone is watching you, seeing how well you are doing? Do you feel like you’re being judged? Does the task become more difficult, maybe you can feel anger rise?

For most if not all its not about getting confidence but getting rid of the opposite belief that is holding you back. It could be fear of rejection, fear of being judged, fear of failure or fear of success. In hypnosis we do work on adding in positive suggestions but by also removing the old negative ones.

Confidence is when an individual feels self-assured and has very real belief in their mental and physical capabilities. As you might imagine, CEO’s of Fortune 500 companies and world class athletes are the types of individuals who have higher than average confidence and self-esteem. Their confidence in themselves unlocks the door to significant success and achievement.

For the rest of us, confidence is a critical facet in enjoying success in work, in relationships and generally in life. A confident person will not be afraid to show interest in a special someone or will not be afraid to take a life-changing risk in order to accomplish their hopes and dreams. Confidence can be thought of as a means of power.

But many of us are plagued by having a low level of confidence. Sufferers of a lack of confidence may feel that their work is not good enough or that they are not smart enough or attractive. These negative thoughts can stop someone right in their tracks. A lack of confidence can lead to a roadblock that stops an individual from living the life they always dreamed about.

Start building confidence today through hypnosis. Hypnosis is a proven method that can help an individual build confidence. Hypnosis works on a subconscious level of the mind. The subconscious mind stores over four-hundred million pieces of information that affect our personal attitudes, beliefs, values and thinking.

When an individual is placed into a deep state of relaxation the subconscious mind is highly receptive to new perspectives or ideas. Positive suggestions, confidence-building statements, motivation and a direct plan to build confidence are received by the subconscious mind.

An individual while undergoing hypnosis will form positive thinking and behavior patterns that help to build confidence. Hypnosis is an amazing experience that has many rewarding benefits. Hypnosis is a calming process that alleviates stress and anxiety while relaxing the whole body. The process of hypnosis is safe, gentle and positive. People of all ages can benefit from hypnosis.

If you desire to build your level of confidence then, as a practicing hypnotherapist, I recommend that you seek out the services of an experienced hypnotherapist in your area. Hypnosis is a positive experience that will enable you to lead a more confident, happier and healthier life. Take hold of your life through hypnosis.
