4 Ways that Hypnosis can Heal Your Life

“You use hypnosis not as a cure, but as a means of establishing a favorable climate in which to learn.” ~ Dr. Milton Erickson M.D., father of modern hypnosis.

Hypnosis is one of the most powerful healing modalities known. While Dr Erickson didn’t coin the term, many consider Anton Mesmer (1700s) to be the father of hypnosis; however, hypnosis in different forms has been used for millennia.

The most famous being the Egyptians sleep tunnels from about 4,000 years ago. And while this healing modality is still not fully understood, hypnosis can be used for a wide variety of issues. Many people think about hypnosis for weight loss and smoking cessation, but it’s actually very powerful for many issues including anxiety, trauma, depression, fears or phobias, and stress. 

Hypnosis has helped me in innumerable ways, but arguably the most interesting is that it helped me through a very stressful time in my life. In 2011, I had a series of events coalesce at the same time that created high red zone levels of stress. Hypnosis was my last ditch effort to work with stress after I ran out of “logical” ways to address it. 

Hypnosis not only helped me to address it, but it led me to pursue a better quality of life. It helped me to start to pinpoint my stress triggers, increase my ability to cope with such situations, reorient my life to be less stressful, and gave me a great method for decompressing.

To help you discover the power of this method, let’s look at what hypnosis is and four ways it can heal your life.

“Hypnosis is a normal and natural way of knowing your inner self and augmenting it with virtues like self-belief.” ~ Dr Prem Jagyasi
