Most hypnotherapists offer one solution to your symptoms. At hypnopurelife you have the option of analytical hypnotherapy (Pure Hypno-Analysis) which will uncover the reason for your symptoms. Whether it be a phobia or even up and down weight issues. When the route cause is established not only do your symptoms go, you will be more content in your outlook on life in general. You will feel liberated. At ease and peace within yourself. This type of hypnotherapy is not a quick fix solution. It takes time and dedication.
Positive Suggestion Hypnotherapy
Positive suggestion hypnotherapy is what it says. Your subconscious mind is opened up during the hypnotic session. Your subconscious mind is then very suggestive and is willing t take on new thoughts and belief processes. For example, although most of us no it is bad for our health to overeat or over indulge in regular intake of alcohol. But the subconscious part of the mind does not know right from wrong. It often sends us to bad negative behaviours as a coping mechanism. It sees this course of action as beneficial to you. So with positive suggestion hypnotherapy the subconscious mind can be reprogrammed. It takes on new information, new thinking, new behaviour. Example, you over eat on a regular basis. That temporarily makes you feel better, the subconscious therefore has done what is it supposed to do, "make you feel better" Now if we tell the subconscious mind that you will feel better by eating nutritious healthy food, the imagination is open, and it can create that to be your reality. When that happens there should be no cravings or feelings of sense of loss.
Sometimes it is necessary to take you back in time. This may be to address issues of your past that you can assess as the adult you are now. Or it may be to see, face and almost relive different experiences from your past If we accept this as truth, that the subconscious mind is there to protect you and help you throughout your life, then picture this brief scenario. A child is say ten years old. They are in a park playing with a ball, parents just close by. The weather is very warm, everyone is in shorts and summer wear. The ice cream is playing its enticing tune. And then all of a sudden a dog comes to the child and nips him. Now the child will be comforted by parents, family etc. On this occasion the child just suffers a graze and does not require medical attention.
The very next day he may go back to the park and have a great day. No events, now can you imagine one day (he is an adult now), that he is in a park and somewhere in the background he hears a dog barking. All of a sudden the now adult can feel panicked, anxious and afraid. He may feel a tremendous urge to get as far away from the park as quickly as possible.
Being out of the park after a moment or two his physiology returns to normal.
Now see what happened here, the subconscious mind has put some factors together, the park, the dog, perhaps people wearing shorts, ice cream van etc. The fight or flight response took over. Now when the man left the park hurriedly. The subconscious mind thinks, see, we stopped you getting bitten or nipped by a dog. There didn't even have to be the sound of a dog in the park or even a dog. The brain has taken a snapshot of the day when you the child got nipped by the dog along with all the sounds, feelings and thoughts. If you like its put 2 and 2 together and came up with five.
Phobias and fears are not always so simple to understand where they come from. But now you can see where regressive hypnosis can benefit the person rather than just positive hypnotherapy. That memory may have been completely locked deep in to the child's mind. So when he was out of the park, he would have no sensible logical understanding of what just happened. He may seek out a doctor, who may completely misdiagnose the symptom and call it agoraphobia (fear of open spaces). If that happens the man comes to see a hypnotherapist and says he has agoraphobia can he be helped. Anxiety, phobias, fears, again I will say are not always as straight forward as this scenario.
Past Life Regression
Many believe they have lived previous lives Some believe they have strong memories from these past lives, others believe that suffer ailments in life today but caused in a last life. In some cultures it is widely believed that we all live several lives as part of our soul development. Regardless of religion or culture it is indeed a very unique experience to the individual. Again you are hypnotised, and taken back to earlier ages in this lifetime, and then back further and further.
