Hypnosis in the Age of COVID-19
“Man is by nature a social animal.” ~ Aristotle
Hypnosis to Deal With COVID-19
Socialization has been an important component of the human experience. Social interaction is essential for our physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing. We share mirror neurons that help us to match each other’s emotions unconsciously. This creates a safe space, and we develop a feeling of acceptance as well as an increased sense of self-esteem.
When we are unable to connect and bond with others, we feel isolated and this can often lead to feelings of fear, loneliness, sadness, anger, or helplessness.
Research shows that prolonged periods of isolation can have different impacts on people. The effects can range from negative self-talk, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, insomnia, and other health conditions. All of these are often symptoms of toxic emotions that we carry from unresolved problems from the past. They have now resurfaced when triggered by the present global crisis caused by COVID-19.
The core of these toxic emotions could be embedded in traumas from our childhood, unfinished learnings from previous relationships, deep-seated fears, and even repressed painful memories.
What we don’t repair, repeats!
The COVID19 situation merely serves as a trigger that activates an unhealed wound. In fact, a study of the negative impact of COVID-19 on older adults conducted in London, UK suggested that the best ways to combat loneliness are through engagement in meaningful social activities and psychological interventions.
Overcoming Toxic Emotions during Social Isolation
The Science of Hypnosis helps us identify our core toxic emotions and how it is being triggered.
Hypnosis is a natural state of awareness in which the physical body is completely relaxed, and the mind is active. It is important to note that this is a ‘natural’ state, which means everyone does and can experience hypnosis.
Hypnotherapy is a simple yet powerful modality of Mind Science that empowers us to access the cause of triggers, heals parts of us that are still carrying old wounds, and releases the residual emotional charges from the past that no longer serve us.
All we must learn to do is to tap into the power of the infinite potential of our Mind and align our conscious thought processes with our subconscious programs. This will help us flip toxic emotions to empowering ones. And this, in turn, can allow us to break the barriers of limiting beliefs so that we may create the life that we want and deserve to live.
