Category: Pain Control
Pain happens, at least is understood in the head, therefor hypnotherapy is an excellent tool managing, controlling, easing the feeling of pain.
Pauline, who lives in Europe, found me online. She had been googling ideas about physical pain and the role the subconscious mind played in that pain. She was especially focused on “pain caused by accidents”. During her search, she came upon my blog post: A Dialogue with “Pain Body” in Hypnotherapy.
I was a little bit surprised that someone would initiate a session with me based on that article about pain-body, because I…
The Flight-or-Flight Response is built into our human biology. The reptilian brain, by far the oldest and simplest part of our brain, is responsible for our survival. It is a system from ancient times which caused an individual to either fight or run for protection when real physical danger was present, such as a large hungry animal. Today people don’t have to face the issue of survival on a daily basis. Yet this component still exists in our biology and can be easily activated, in most people, when a danger is real or when it is just imagined to be real, such as with fear of abandonment, or fear of not being good enough.
A hypnotherapist’s office may sound like an odd place to go when what you want is to get better from cysts and a brain tumor.
Yet it was out of a great deal of anxiety, frustration, sadness, embarrassment and depression that Daniela contacted me. She is 35 years old, for 12 years she has had breast cysts. 7 years ago, she started to have a brain tumor. She is currently on medication for the tumor, she has had five biopsies and four surgeries for cysts, and yet doctors can’t explain why this is happening to her, nor do they seem able to stop it regardless of the efforts. Daniela is getting married in five months, and planning to have children right afterwards. There is a sense of urgency in the situation, and she feels it’s time to understand why this is happening to her so that she can do something about it. She came for hypnotherapy sessions for past life regression. In our consultation, we agreed to have three sessions to start with. Later on, Daniela came for two more sessions.
The sensation of pain is simply a signal to tell us some important information. Like a red light on a car dashboard telling us the fuel level is low. We can, of course, do something to disconnect the light signal so it stops, but that can be dangerous if the car is running on the road. When you fill in fuel, the signal automatically goes off.
