I could not be more grateful for all of the healing that has taken place in my life since returning home from Costa Rica! One workshop I stumbled upon was called "Self-Hypnosis To Reduce Stress." Hypnosis sounded super interesting to me and I'm always ready and willing to add another tool to my kit to battle and stress and anxiety that comes my way. The workshop was led by Mee Vaj of Myoho Wellness. She's a certified hypnotherapist and reiki master, and I've actually since started working with her as a hypnotherapy client. I have nothing but positive things to say about her! I would highly recommend reaching out to her if you would like to learn self-hypnosis or if you'd like to use hypnotherapy to overcome anxiety, fears, phobias, etc.
Before learning self-hypnosis, it's important to know what hypnosis is NOT. Here are four misconceptions of hypnosis...
Self-hypnosis is really great for meditation, relaxing, falling asleep, visualizing and releasing stress. This state allows your body and mind to heal, and I often feel like I've woken up from a refreshing nap! I personally love self-hypnosis for visualizing because it helps put these ideas into your subconscious.
Below is how you actually get into a state of self-hypnosis. Please do NOT try this the first time without being guided by a hypnotherapist! Mee hypnotized us first and gave us suggestions that would allow us to do it on our own. If you'd like to learn how to do self-hypnosis safely and effectively, give her a call! She's awesome!
