Hypnosis: A Great Healing Instrument

///Hypnosis: A Great Healing Instrument

hypnosis healingHypnosis is a great healing instrument used by psychologists. Also hypnosis can be used in general medicine too, for instance, for calming the physical pain.
What is hypnosis? It is a form of therapy in which the therapist sends affirmations or suggestions to the client who is in a deep relaxation state.
If we want to truly believe some affirmations we must focus on them when we are totally relaxed, and no one or nothing else can disturb us. Also, if we really want to achieve something we must be able to visualize ourselves succeeding, when we are totally relaxed and nothing is disturbing us. These two are the premises of hypnosis.

So WHAT does hypnosis do? Its goal is to cure. What? Anger, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, pain, addiction and so on.

HOW does hypnosis cure? By sending suggestions to the subconscious, or by visualizing success.

WHEN can we send these suggestions? In a deep relaxation state.

HOW do we induce this deep relaxation state? By combining three types of relaxation: meditation breathing, progressive muscle relaxation and meditation visualization.

1.MEDITATION BREATHING:

The key to a relaxing breathing is:
-inhale through your nose,
-keep the air into your lungs,
-exhale very long through your mouth, counting slowly as you exhale from 1 to 5.
-keep doing this several times, imagining that when exhaling you let go of any negative emotion and tension out of your body.

2. PROGRESSIVE MUSCLE RELAXATION

This technique consists of contracting and letting go of every muscle of your body one by one. So you start with the right foot: contract the muscles from your right foot, one by one, hold while you count from 1 to 10, then let go, focusing on how the tension goes away.

The most popular sequence runs as follows:
1. Right foot
2. Left foot
3. Right calf
4. Left calf
5. Right thigh
6. Left thigh
7.Hips and buttocks
8. Stomach
9. Chest
10.Back
11.Right arm and hand
12.Left arm and hand
13.Neck and shoulders
14.Face

3. VISUALIZATION MEDITATION

You become very relaxed if you let your mind wander to beautiful peaceful places. Very good places to imagine are a beach at the ocean or a field full of flowers. The details which describe the image must be visual, kinesthetic and acoustic.

Apart from these 3 techniques, relaxation music can help a lot. After the person is hypnotized, his body goes to sleep and his mind wakes up, which means that his subconscious is ready to receive positive suggestions.

Waking up must be very smooth, not all of a sudden, inviting the person to move his fingertips at first, to imagine how energy is rushing through his muscles, preparing him first and then telling him to open her eyes.
