Anxiety is a feeling of nervousness, apprehension, fear, or worry. Some of these feelings are justified such as worry about a loved one. Anxiety may occur without a cause, or it may occur based on a real situation, but may be out of proportion to what would normally be expected. There are some for whom anxiety develops progressively over time; for others, it attacks suddenly. Severe anxiety can have a serious impact on daily life. Anxiety can be accompanied by a variety of physical symptoms. Most commonly, these symptoms are related to the heart, lungs, nervous, and gastrointestinal systems.
Hypnotherapy can be a powerful ally in helping people to develop a sense of power and confidence, in spite of the normal anxieties that are a normal part of daily living. Causes of Anxiety and Panic attacks can be triggered by single events or a series of events.
What Is A Panic Attack?
A panic attack is a condition of adrenaline being released into your bloodstream. A message of fear sends a signal to the adrenal glands that there is an emergency. The adrenal glands are pea-sized organs that sit on top of your kidneys. They are filled with adrenaline that, when released into your body, gives you heightened abilities to respond to emergency situations. This emergency response causes physical symptoms that many people misinterpret as a heart attack or other serious physical conditions. Misinterpreting these symptoms can cause the fear response to continue. Some panic attacks are triggered by seemingly innocuous incidents that symbolize some event or condition earlier in the person's life.
An accountant became anxious when driving the car in the rain. Regressing him to the source, he recalled that he had been in a car accident on a rainy day when he was 5 years old and one of his family member was seriously injured. He thought that this is an event from his past that he dealt with, but his subconscious imprint remained, leading to his fear of being in the car on a rainy day. Once he was aware that his anxiety came from his past incident, his panic disappeared.
The Benefits of Hypnotherapy: Hypnotherapy is effective in helping people with either mild or severe cases of anxiety. In mild cases, simple redirecting thought patterns can give people relief. In more severe cases, it is necessary to discover the source of the anxiety before any reprogramming can be fully effective. Hypnotic suggestions replace catastrophic thoughts or over-anxiousness with truthful statements about the nature of the symptoms and the realization that physical sensations can cause no harm. Hypnosis can create a sense of balance and relaxation through deep breathing, slow down the heart beat, free the throat to swallow.
Anxiety is a SYMPTOM OF AN EMOTION that is stored in the subconscious part of the mind. And whatever the event that caused the emotion (or emotions as there can be more than one) it compromised your self esteem. The Subconscious mind is the storehouse of ALL emotional memories, which form one's values, morals and beliefs about him/herself and his/her world. They are emotions that are experienced as a very young child that became imprinted subconsciously. The subconscious mind has one job only - and that is to protect the person around that feeling(s). It does not rationalize as to whether this protection is good for the person or not. And that is because it cannot tell the difference. If you feel it, it protects you. Hypnotic procedures can seek out these causal events involved in the initial development or onset of the problem. Parts Therapy and age-regression are the most beneficial techniques available to people who suffer anxiety because they are so effective in uncovering causes. Hypnotic procedures using age regression simply help the client to go back in their memory to the time and place where a problem originated. In the case of anxiety or panic attacks, this can be something that occurred only a few weeks prior to coming for assistance or it can be in childhood.
