For most clients, I’m usually a last resort.
They tried everything, they tell me. medicine. Treatment. yoga. meditation.
There seems to be nothing to relieve their anxiety.
That’s why they come to me. I am a consulting hypnotist and specialize in alleviating anxiety. Some have never thought about hypnosis, while others are working hard until all the options are exhausted.
Arguably, I can broaden my belief in the potential of my clients. Hypnosis shows how much they can control their emotions and life.
Perhaps you have tried everything too. Medications and treatments-our most common answer-are powerful and effective. I know this because they have had a huge impact on my own anxiety.
But sometimes something more is needed.
Keep reading as I’ll explain three of my most effective anxiety relief tools. I will teach these to my clients and provide techniques to use in the event of a panic. These help to achieve breakthroughs that thousands of people thought were impossible. Let’s get in.
Our first tool is called by many names such as 7-11, 4-7-8, Breathing Stretch and so on. Whatever you call it, the concept is the same: you exhale longer than you inhale.
To do this, inhale 7 counts. Pause for 1 second for 11 counts and then exhale. This is useful when you are exhaling and purging your lips.
This technique comes from oriental knowledge of yoga and breathing techniques. Why does this work? When the exhalation is longer than the inhalation, what is called the vagus nerve is triggered. This part of you controls your heart, lungs, and digestive system with parasympathetic nerves. Simply put, it runs automatically.
What is amazing is that you can consciously control this unconscious process. Breathing in this way triggers the vagus nerve and releases sedative chemicals into the brain.
It’s a timeless secret of yoga. Changing your breathing will change your mind.
Although it has become mainstream in the east, little is known here in the west. And that’s a shame – this technique is simple, quick, powerful and effective.
Jin Shinjutsu works in a similar way to acupuncture and acupuncture. According to Jin Shinjutsu, you can control five different emotions by holding each of your five fingers.
Our thumb controls worry. The finger of our pointer controls the panic. Our middle finger suppresses anger (easy to remember, right?). Our ring finger controls sadness and the little finger controls our excessive thinking.
When you get caught up in one of these emotions, just take your finger in the palm of your other hand and hold it until you feel a pulse.
Hold it for a few seconds. Notice how emotions change.
If it has decreased but not yet gone, press and hold.
Jin Shinjutsu is so easy that it has become one of my favorite techniques. I teach it to all anxiety clients, and I know people use it in some interesting settings: before skydiving, negotiation meetings, and self-defense fights rear.
Personally, this has become my go-to line, especially before big events.
Above all, the most useful tool is hypnosis. Hypnosis, a half-brother of meditation, is one of the most underrated mental health tools we use today.
Hypnosis has been studied and supported by science for almost 100 years. Following World War I and World War II, hypnosis was the primary treatment for PTSD. In 1957, the American Medical Association approved it as an effective treatment. The National Cancer Institute lists hypnosis as a certified treatment for the disease.
It’s amazing that hypnosis is still hidden in the shadows because of its connection to meditation. Meditators attempting hypnosis often report that they simply felt like they were practicing their daily routine. People can get the same health benefits from meditation as hypnosis, and they can often get them faster.
Most guided meditations are actually hypnosis. The teacher leads the listener to a state of deep relaxation (like hypnosis), and while in this trance state, they make useful suggestions.
Grace Smith, the best hypnotherapist in the field today, said: “Hypnosis is just meditation with a goal.” Relaxation, calmness, and a peaceful mind are all goals that hypnosis helps.
There is still a lot of mystery and false information surrounding hypnosis today. Although it has a powerful effect, many people do not hypnotize it.
That is why many hypnotists, including myself, strive to explain this healing technique in an easy-to-understand manner. If you want to try hypnosis for free, we will release a new session on Instagram TV (@makingyourmeaning) every week. You will find sessions on anxiety relief, insomnia, and even emotional luggage release. If you give it a try, please tell us your thoughts. I love it when people say hello.
The tools I have outlined are not yet mainstream, but they have provided a powerful remedy for my clients. Anxiety can be crippled, but it doesn’t have to hinder you. Whether you use these tools as additional help or make them reliable the next time you experience anxiety, they can have an incredible impact on your life. .. What I really want to know is which one to use first.
