The mind beneath.

image

There is a mind beneath our conscious that is responsible for maintaining anxiety, fears, phobias, OCD, PTSD, panic attacks, eating disorders and harmful habits such as smoking. This subconscious mind sometimes makes us do harmful things to ourselves and overrides logic thought. This subconscious mind may seem irrational at times but it’s purpose is to protect us and fore fill our basic needs. The subconscious mind has kept us alive for thousands of years but unfortunately hasn’t adapted to the pressures and complexities of modern life. This mind is capable of processing millions of bits of information a second and creating wonderful things but can sometimes be our Achilles heel.

Our natural resistance to change

IMG_0313

A piece on the news caught my attention this morning. Apparently the NHS are funding a 400 person survey to discover why people do not follow through with the advice of their GP’s, take their medication and make appropriate life style changes.

No doubt this survey will cost the tax payer tens of thousands of pounds and probably conclude that GP’s will need to clearer explain the health benefits of following their advice and the terrible out comes if they don’t to their patients. This is the logical and correct advice but unfortunately it will be rejected by most patients. So why is it that even when faced by death most of us ignore the advice of people who know best?

We are controlled by a subconscious mind that is programmed to move us away from discomfort. When I say discomfort I mean it hates moving away from what is familiar and what requires effort. The subconscious mind lives for instant gratification which is particularly evident in people who smoke and people who over eat. While they are smoking or eating they are in ecstasy and it is only afterwards that the realizations of what they have done sets in and makes them feel bad. It is a fact that 60% of smokers diagnosed with lung cancer continue to smoke.

It is essential the subconscious mind is convinced that the effort is worthwhile and that change is more beneficial than continuing what is familiar. For some this can be achieved by the awareness of new information or through re-education.

If there is still no acceptance of the benefits of change and a ressistance to change then alternatives need to be looked at. The most appropriate is through hypnosis where a connection is made with the subconscious mind to break down any resistance to change.

Hypnosis has been around for thousands of years. Hypnotherapy is a natural and safe way to deal with problems like anxiety, fears, phobias, trauma, negative habits and thinking issues. There are no nasty side effects, it is direct and fast.

You will be amazed how understanding Federer’s parts can help you!

I was watching the Wimbledon men’s finals over the weekend and noticed the commentators constantly referring to the top 4 players in the world. They said the thing that separates them from the rest of the pack is their mental strength especially during the “big points”. The top 20 players have very similar physical skills so it must be psychological!

What is this mental strength that they are talking about and how do we get it?

Inside all of us we have different parts that are responsible for different jobs. We have parts that come forward when we are angry, sad, confident, scared, happy etc. As long as the right part comes forward at the appropriate time we can deal with whatever life throws at us in an appropriate way.

Usually Roger Federer’s confident part comes forward when he plays but what if his scared part came forward when he was playing an important point?

Does your angry part came forward in situations that would be better handled by your calm part? Or what if your scared part kept coming forward when you about to make a presentation?

Under hypnosis these parts can be communicated with and have their roles changed so that the right part comes forward at the right time making life much easier.
