The secret to reducing stress even very severe stress, anxiety, anger and similar problems that plague our lives. You need to talk to your unconscious mind and involve your whole self. Your logical conscious mind can’t make the changes needed.
The thing is that we hold our emotions and feelings in the cells of our body and our body remembers the hurts, the pain and the frustrations. Thinking about a problem logically, or going over it again and again in your conscious mind does not communicate with those buried memories in the cells of your body to let the events that triggered the problem be over.
Now if that sounds a bit weird and woo-woo to you just stop for a minute and FEEL… you may try to feel happy and your whole body feels good. If you feel stressed or angry, your various aches and pains feel worse.
Simply stop, take a deep breath and notice where your stress is located or where you feel most stress (hint… often it is your stomach), then put your hand on the stressed area and focus on letting just that part of you relax while you breathe in and out.
This helps because you are communicating with your body.
With serious stress and similar conditions hypnotherapy is astonishingly effective because it lets you communicate directly with those problem memories and their associated feelings, know deeply that they are over and it is safe to return to calm… all without consciously reliving the problems.
Dealing with the feelings and the hurt is the secret to healing stress, anger, anxiety, trauma and PTSD. Your body must know that the event is over and it is safe to return to calm.
