How Can I Change my Attitude with Hypnosis?

I very much agree with Dennis S. Brown’s statement that “The only difference between a good day and a bad day is your attitude.”  How we approach our challenges can either bog us down or propel us forward.  For example, if you are about to meet a new person, worries about how they might perceive you might make you act awkwardly.  On the other hand, if you consider meeting a new person as a potential start to an exciting new adventure you will likely interact in an enthusiastic way that would much more likely lead to a wonderful new relationship. 

When my patients apply to college many of them worry about whether they will get into the right school, and expend a lot of emotional energy in the college application endeavor.  Many worry that if they do not get accepted to their first-choice college that this would be an awfully bad outcome.  I explain to my patients that they would be better off recognizing that the universe will take them where they need to go.  If they end up going to another college, they can have a terrific experience there as long as they maintain a good attitude and work hard.  Thus, while they are not in control of whether they will be accepted at any given institution, they will control how they do in the college where they do attend.  I suggest that with the right attitude the outcome of their college application process will be good no matter the outcome. 

A good attitude is helpful in approaching any life venture.  If you achieve a particular goal, you can be happy.  If you do not achieve that goal, you can learn something from the experience, and be happy as well.  I remind my patients of the Ralph Nader quote, “The best teacher is your last mistake.” 

How Hypnosis Can Help Change your Attitude 

The first key to changing your attitude is the intention to do so.  Hypnosis can then give you tools to accomplish the change. 

Hypnosis can help change your mood by helping you imagine a calming, inspiring, or comforting scene from your past, or a happy outcome to an experience that awaits you.  Such imagery helps change feelings, thoughts, and physical sensations by helping to alter your mind focus.  An improved mood can lead to a better attitude, such as experienced by most of us after a good night’s rest. 

Attitude can also be changed by learning how you developed a particular attitude in the first place, and then deciding if you want to change your approach.  Hypnosis can help accomplish such an introspective process by facilitating interactions with your subconscious that can give you a fresh perspective regarding your thought processes. 

Finally, if you decide that you want to change your attitude, you can use the hypnotic state to give yourself suggestions regarding what you want your new attitude to be, and how you would like it to be manifested.
