Fear & Anxiety Caused By Stress

Fear of Losing The Village

I have talked a lot about fear and anxiety being the extreme end of the subconscious warning system, a pattern your subconscious runs to keep you safe.

I haven’t talked about the other type of anxiety, the type you feel as part of the stress reaction when things are not going your way, when things are happening that you don’t feel you have control over, when you have an illness or are in some kind of trouble. In these situations the pattern is not being run to keep you safe, it is a warning of potential life changes, a warning that The Village may be taken away from you or you will be taken out of The Village. Never forget though, that although The Village feels safe it is not necessarily the best place to be but it still feels frightening to leave it especially if that exit is forced.

In this situation Hypnosis may not be able to help the illness or the events directly, but it can alter your reaction to those events or the illness. If you are ill, reduced stress and anxiety leaves your body better equipped to fight the disease or virus. If you are dealing with stressful external events then reduced stress and anxiety can leave your mind clear to make the best decisions for your long term situation rather than reacting impulsively to the short term. The anxiety is about hanging on to the way things are whether it’s for the best or not. Hypnosis can help you see outside of that and then make the necessary changes yourself.

Hypnosis is an exciting way to help you cope better but life is an intricate web of complexity and there will always be things to learn and challenges to face. Hypnosis can ensure that you are best equipped to face them.
