There is a common acronym for FEAR: False Expectations Appearing Real A lot of people have succumbed to panic. They live most of their lives in the realm of fear. Your fears keep you where you are, and they don’t generally reflect the reality of your situation. What fear does is reflect what your mind perceives as reality. Most of your fears actually don’t exist and as such you are held back by an imaginary divide.

Benefits of Hypnotherapy In Childbirth

By on Jun 21, 2018 in Blog | 0 comments

Benefits of Hypnotherapy In Childbirth There are many methods for pain management during childbirth, but one you might not have considered or heard much about is hypnotherapy. Hypnotherapy is used during childbirth to take the mother’s mind off of the pain and allow her to experience natural childbirth in a relaxed state of mind, all while still being present throughout the birth of her child. Hypnotherapy is an option for mothers who want to experience natural childbirth without any pain medication. There are no side effects from hypnotism and you can still be present without the presence of pain. Hypnotherapy applies tools that the mother is taught to convince her mind that her body can handle the pain. This can be accomplished because of the deep state of mental and physical relaxation that the mind experiences during hypnotism. The mother is hypnotized to focus all of her attention and energy on one thought, likely that she is not experiencing any pain, and is, therefore, able to overcome her fear and pain and experience childbirth in a relaxed state. Many believe that hypnosis during childbirth releases more of the hormones that allow a mother to feel good, which therefore blocks out all of the pain. So during childbirth, the mother would have a higher level of endorphins and serotonin being released into her body due to the hypnosis, rather than experiencing the pain. Therefore she is more relaxed and her muscles are ease, relieving some pain. If you are an expectant mother who would like to enjoy the process of natural childbirth but might be a little frightened by the idea of the pain, hypnotism might be the best option for you. With the right amount of practice leading up to the birth of your child, you could have a pain free natural...

What are You Afraid Of? Fears & Phobias

By on Jun 11, 2018 in Blog | 0 comments

So what are you afraid of? We all have fears; it’s a natural defense mechanism designed by Mother Nature to protect us and keep us out of harm’s way. But normal fears have big, mean cousins called phobias. These can be normal fears that somehow get out of hand so the fear you feel is far in excess of the actual risk, or worse, a fear that is totally irrational, so you are afraid of something that poses no risk at all. Either way, phobias can have a devastatingly negative impact on the quality of your life; they can rule you to the extent that you aren’t able to participate in what would be considered every day, routine activities.  When that happens, as Scoobie-Do would say, “Ruh, Ro.” Fortunately, for the most part phobias are easily treated, and what seemed horrifying can become a non entity in a very short time with a genuine desire, a willingness to do the work and the appropriate treatment. You can be right back in the game, flying, driving on the freeway, giving presentations, going to the doctor or dentist, swimming in the big blue ocean, or enjoying a movie in a small theater, or… fill in your blank. This episode of A Better You in a Minute or Two takes a look at this phenomenon and having worked with hundreds of sacredly cats and phobics of one sort or another–would you believe a phobia of pickles?– I can attest that these pests of the human mind can be exterminated quickly and efficiently, leaving you free to live your life again. Just click on the poor, frightened lady below. Oh, she is looking at a picture of a spider; for the most part harmless little creatures that if left alone are a great benefit to us humans– that is when we no longer fear them.
