As an adult, we are the sum of all life’s experiences, from conception until today… many good experiences, and some not so good experiences combine to shape us into the person we are today.
We will often recall happy memories from childhood, as they stimulate the production of the “feel good ” hormones… Happy memories, make us feel good! However, it is also very likely, that childhood included experiences which generated negative feelings or responses:
These negative feelings will often affect us throughout our daily life, without us being aware of where they come from, or why.
We may wonder:
- What is wrong with me?
- Where are these feelings coming from?
- Why am I sad?
- Why am I depressed?
- Why am I angry?
And as time goes by, you may find your behavior becoming more and more difficult to control.
Even though these events, from the past, can no longer physically hurt you, the underlying feelings, continue to have a significant impact.
You may not understand why you react, or behave in a certain way, as the memory of the initializing event, is often hidden away, in the subconscious mind. You may have a vague memory associated with the event, or sometimes no memory at all.
The mind protects us from trauma, by hiding away away the memory, however it does not prohibit it from impacting our behavior or response to outside stimulus. PTSD is an example of this phenomenon, where often victims of traumatic events are unaware of the specific cause of their anxiety, stress, and response to certain triggers.
To deal with these feelings it is important to
- Acknowledge the event took place – it happened in the past
- Avoid trying to “get even” – retribution seldom works
- Accept it had a negative impact – you are now prepared to deal with these feelings
- Adapt to the new knowledge and understanding you have gained – take back control
And most importantly, forgive those who were involved… you are not condoning their actions, but allowing yourself to process the negative feelings and move on with your life. Sometimes people do things impulsively, and totally “out of character”, and they live with the feelings of guilt and regret for the rest of their lives. If you are uncomfortable or unable to to discuss the circumstances with them, it is sufficient for you to forgive them, within yourself and move on.
Hypnosis can help you to discover the underlying events in a safe and secure environment, allowing you to forgive completely, without reservation.
During the hypnosis session, you are guided through this process to achieve a deep sense of understanding, completeness, and acceptance.
Awaken Your Forgiveness – for you, not for anyone else!
