A Dramatic Change for Health and Healing

Almost anyone can benefit from learning how to better manage their emotions.  Sometimes this is an easy thing to recognize, but sometimes it takes an extra dose of perspective to bring it to light.   

With that in mind, how do you help people you care about become aware of this important idea that can dramatically change their lives?   The answer can involve a discussion of two ideas. 

Idea 1:  Chronic Symptoms Can Be Entangled with Our Emotions 

Almost half of Americans have chronic physical symptoms.  However, many of us are unaware of how our emotions play an important role in how these symptoms affect our lives.  Consider these scenarios: 

Idea 2:  Better Management of Our Emotions Can Be Healing 

Learning to Better Manage Emotions 

A question that naturally follows acceptance of these two ideas is:  How easy is it to teach people to better manage their emotions?  It’s as easy as learning how to use your imagination to help yourself.  As described in my book, Changing Children’s Lives with Hypnosis: A Journey to the Center (Anbar, 2021), self-hypnosis can be used to harness the imagination such that some patients gain benefit in as few as 1-2 sessions.  Most patients improve within several sessions.   

There are many reasons that people may be unaware of or uninterested in learning about the potential benefits of hypnosis. Among them: 

Call to Action 

To spread the word about how use of hypnosis can help improve the lives of many individuals, I believe it is important for every provider who uses hypnosis to talk widely about its benefits.   

In addition, I challenge every patient who has benefited from hypnosis to talk to their family, friends, teachers, students, physicians, and co-workers about how their health and life outlook improved after learning how to better manage their emotions. 

Together, we can help bring about an important change in our society’s approach to health and healing.
