Overcoming Anxiety With Hypnosis

overcoming anxiety

Overcoming anxiety is simple if you know a few basic self hypnosis techniques. If you've never consider using self hypnosis as treatment for anxiety before, but are currently struggling with panic attacks, stress or other forms of anxiety disorders, hypnotherapy may be worth a look. Those who have tried anxiety hypnosis had discovered a natural and drug-free treatment to help them overcome their anxiety problems and reduce their stress.

According to William Ray, PhD, professor of psychology at Penn State University “Today, there's general agreement that hypnosis can be an important part of treatment for some conditions, including phobias, addictions and chronic pain.” Anxiety is one of many conditions that are currently being treated with self hypnosis techniques. Since hypnosis is non-invasive and drug-free many scientists and physicians are looking to it as an alternative to traditional medication treatments.

Anxiety is characterized by overwhelming fear which can manifest as headaches, nausea, shortness of breath and/or lightheadedness. People who suffer from anxiety find themselves paralyzed with fear. These fears may or may not be based in reality. Some people with anxiety experience debilitating panic attacks which leave them in tears, and able to continue on with their daily tasks.

Hypnosis can help with overcoming anxiety because it goes directly to the root of the problem. Anxiety is something that is hardwired in our human brains. It's an evolution of the flight or fight response that was important to our survival of the species. However, now that we lead a faster pace of life as a species we find anxiety and emotional stress in day-to-day living.

Chronic panic attacks and other symptoms of anxiety disorders can be relieved with anxiety hypnosis. Self hypnosis allows you to re-wire your brain so that you can approach life in a more calm manner. Ideally after practicing self hypnosis for some time, you'll be able to redirect your emotional responses so that you'll experience less stress and anxiety. You won't need to be in a state of hypnosis is all the time in order to achieve these benefits. You'll be able to take your experience from your hypnosis sessions and use it to reduce stress around-the-clock.

The key to coping with anxiety through hypnosis is to learn how to get yourself into a hypnotic state. This is a lot easier than it sounds. You just need to start by sitting in a quiet place where there will not be any distractions. Until you get the hang of it, you may want to try doing this at home right before you go to bed. Once you more experience, you'll be able to use self hypnosis where ever you are.

Start by closing your eyes and breathing deeply. This alone will help you rid yourself of stress and anxiety, but there's more to the process. Before you get started, think about the positive statements that you want to impress upon your brain. This can be anything from "I am” anxiety free" to "I am bigger than my anger." Clear your mind to begin counting backwards very slowly from 10 to one. Tell yourself that when you reach one you'll be in a highly suggestible state.

Once you've reached that point, repeat your positive statement to yourself 10 times. Feel your body absorbing the words. Imagine them being written across the wall in front of you. After you've repeated this statement 10 times, start counting slowly from one up to 10 again. Once you reach 10, you will feel refresh, relaxed and firmly implanted with your new positive statement.

Overcoming anxiety doesn't have to be something that requires drugs or expensive therapy. With an open mind and some simple technique and dedication to try self hypnosis, you'll be able to overcome your anxiety, stress and panic attacks.
