Do You Have a Good Relationship With Yourself?

When we ponder relationships, we don’t often consider the relationship we have with ourselves. We do, in fact, have a self-relationship. We all get an image of our personal relationship with ourselves daily. Acknowledging our self-relationship can bring a lot of insight and healing when we choose to be honest with ourselves. Please don’t underestimate the importance of taking a little moral inventory to see where self-image can be improved, adjusted a little bit, or maybe a lot! Your “self” is calling and talking out loud! You, and only you, can make changes in yourself and make a difference in the quality of your life and your self-relationship.

Examples of ways we have a relationship with ourselves:

We see our personal relationship with ourselves through our temperament.

If you are a spouting geyser every time something rubs you the wrong way, your “self” is telling you it’s time to cool your heels. Remember, what you put out there in life is what will eventually come back, if not already. People view you, make assumptions and judgments about you according to your temperament. Even closer, your feelings about yourself are revealed through what you spew out. Don’t try to kid yourself here. You might try to fool others, but you can never kid yourself. You know who you are. The question is, “Why do you let the pressure valve out on everyone, and where does that anger come from?”

Maybe some emotional healing work is needed to cool down the emotional relationship you have with yourself. Believe me; eventually, your body will remind you to quit being such a hot head by breaking down in ways you don’t expect it to. Make it “be kind to your body time” and take steps to cool the hot embers in your heart.

Our personal relationship with ourselves is revealed through our self-image.

If you find you are continually comparing yourself to others, feel slighted by what others have, or wish you had attributes others have, then your self-image is screaming at you! It is easy to state how unique you are, how special God made you, or remind you of your gift to this world. The more challenging part is to learn how to believe how valuable you are, just the way you are.

If there are simple ways to improve upon your outer image, then do those things. Exercise, diet changes, and a little external enhancement can go a long way. For something you can not change, learn acceptance by loving yourself daily. We are all bombarded by images of others that are photoshopped, have attributes others admire, and tempt us toward self-loathing. Self-image is not only about the outside but the inside as well. Many of our programmed loathing comes from what we have been exposed to. The subconscious mind will hold these things for you! Gee, thank you very much, right? Try some self-image-enhancing hypnotherapy or meditation. There are many videos out there. If you find it hard to stick to routines, you might need a hypnotherapist. Invest in the money to get at least six sessions for a Hypno-change! Your self-relationship will thank you!

Our personal relationship with ourselves is revealed through the act of procrastination.

If there are things in life, you would like to do but never seem to get around to it. Or, if there are things that need to be taken care of but you never do, you are being held captive by the procrastination monster! When you procrastinate about doing something you know you should, you could either be suffering from a form of depression or your mind is too fixed on overthinking other things. You are lacking motivation and need a revving up of your self-motivator.

I know this might sound redundant but get organized! A scattered schedule lends toward too much time on your hands. Sooner or later, you end up putting off for another day what could have been done right now. Take the bull by the horns and get the more pressing things done first. Then go to the things you want to do to enhance your life. If you feel you need help for depression, see a counselor and help find the root of your distress. If you are overthinking, get your thoughts down on paper in a journal or talk to someone who can simply listen. Clear your mind, your heart, and your life from clutter. You will find more room to get those “need to do” or “want to do” things accomplished! If you are having trouble sticking to a routine or getting organized, once again, find a hypnotherapist! I can not say enough about the ability hypnosis has to help change unwanted habits to those desired!

I hope you see what I am getting at here. Your relationship with yourself will determine your ability to have one with others. Do some digging and excavating. If there are things you know that need changing then change them! It is never too late to have a great self-relationship and enhance your relationship with others around you! You might even find yourself attracting new friendships, new people, and new opportunities into your life. Don’t take yourself for granted. You guide your own ship. Do it with honesty and with self-revelation!

Amazing Facts About Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy or hypnosis is a fantastic tool to help change and overcome negative thoughts or reactions in life. While placed in a mild form of trance, an individual can receive desired suggestions from a skilled hypnotherapist to assist in weight loss, release pain or anxiety, help with depression, and even stop unwanted habits. One of the more profound changes that can be introduced through hypnosis is behavior modification or behavior changes. Behavioral change is a benefit of hypnosis supported and researched by the Mayo Clinic.

Since our lives and outcomes of situations are about our behavior, changing unwanted behavior and responses can completely change the quality of an individual’s life. Even relationships can be improved by behavioral modification through hypnotherapy.

Unlike what some might expect, hypnosis is not falling asleep but more of a heightened state of awareness. Even so, some individuals might fall asleep due to the relaxation state achieved through a hypnotic induction. WebMD explains two ways hypnosis can be used in a therapeutic or a counseling situation; for analysis during therapy or suggestion.

During hypnotic analysis, a client is placed into a mild trance where responses to the leading questioning can help bring out reasons for distress or hidden heart wounds. Since we all tend to lead and live according to many of our heart wounds, bringing them to the surface to heal them can help tremendously in the process of discovery and recovery.

Hypnotic suggestion is just as it sounds to be. Hypnosis can be used to place an individual into a deeper trance state, and the therapist feeds suggestions to reprogram or reformat the subconscious mind. Changing the subconscious is an effective way to change lifelong poor habits and gain new, more productive habits! Some of the wonderful ways to make changes are to have the subconscious mind accept suggestions for more productivity, abundance, self-worth, self-confidence, or even get that old tendency toward eating the wrong things out of mind and out of sight!

One prevalent and sometimes controversial reason for hypnosis is for past life regression. Our past life can be considered what happened in the past during this lifetime. Those who adhere to reincarnation hypnotic regression can regress clients into former lives with amazing clarity. During a regression, an individual’s reasoning or conscious mind is bypassed while the hypnotherapist guides into the subconscious mind that has a recall of all that has been experienced before. Through this process, the higher self, or what some call the superconscious mind, is connected with, and discoveries can be made, recorded, and analyzed to help bring more insights into the present life lived.

Although past life regression is controversial to some people, it can help those who embrace the concept or are willing to be open-minded about it (pun intended)! Even seeking back into one’s forgotten childhood experiences can be overwhelmingly helpful as situations and experiences are brought forth to help bring healing and hope for new things on the horizon.

Interesting reading regarding past life regression can be found in the book Many Lives, Many Masters: The True Story of a Prominent Psychiatrist, His Young Patient, And The Past-Life Therapy That Changed Both Their Lives by author Brian L Weiss M.D. The preface of Dr. Weiss’ book begins like this:

“ I know that there is a reason for everything. Perhaps at the moment that an event occurs, we have neither the insight or the foresight to comprehend the reason, but with time and patience, it will come to light” (Weiss 1988).

Regression, analysis, and hypnotic suggestions can all work together to help bring ease, enlightenment, and new focus into life. Even more, some of the old un-useful habits can be released and reprogrammed for better ones. Several sessions are usually needed as mindfulness, subconscious thoughts, and past life thoughts are recorded, analyzed, and reprogrammed. The final results can be absolutely life-changing! Hypnosis is one of the most relaxing and revolutionary tools to use in complicated cases or even to stop the old habits that hold us back from being our authentic and true selves.

Although hypnosis is not for everyone, such as those with dissociative or severe mental illnesses, the practice can help many achieve the freedom and lives they desire. Healing is what we are here for. Once we heal, we are enticed to help others heal too. In fact, our recovery can bring substantial healing to others without trying. We affect everyone around us every day of our lives.
