We know the fact that emotions play a major role in determining our mental health, our happiness and overall wellbeing. But most of us remain unaware of the impact that emotions have on our physical body.
Research shows that positive emotions enable us to enjoy and appreciate life; it strengthens our immune system and keeps physical and psychological illnesses at bay. On the other hand, experiencing negative emotions like anger, fear, grief, hatred, guilt and shame over long periods of time can produce irreparable damage to the body, causing psychosomatic issues as critical as cancer, migraine, anxiety and depression.
Modern research proves that every disease or disorder in the body takes its root in emotional distress. Like negative emotions, unexpressed or suppressed emotions can be equally harmful to the body, causing and aggravating severe health problems.
While sleep naturally heals the body and the mind at the superficial level, the implications of traumatic experiences and bottled up emotions remain deep seated in the subconscious mind. When left unaddressed, it alters the person’s character, inhibiting him from living a happy and successful life.
In the recent times, the science of hypnotherapy has evolved to be the most ideal and effective mechanism used for emotional healing. With Hypnotherapy, it is possible to go to the root cause of a behavioural problem and identify the event, experience or circumstance that triggered it in the first place.
Once the cause of the negative or limiting belief is identified and brought to the person’s awareness, it becomes easy for the therapist to eliminate it. With the help of positive suggestions, the person is guided to let go of unpleasant memories and the trauma associated with it. The therapist works by tapping the person’s powerful subconscious mind and brings desired changes in his thought and behaviour.
As the healing takes place over a few sessions, the person undergoing the therapy experiences drastic improvement in wellbeing. He gains a sense of control and clarity in dealing with emotions and feels empowered to bring the necessary shift within. By learning the healthy way of expressing his emotions, he doesn’t accumulate negativity and instantly frees himself from the stress caused by it. This significantly improves the quality of his life and the enjoyment derived from it.
Stuart Wilde rightly quotes “Life was never meant to be a struggle, just a gentle progression from one point to another, much like walking through a valley on a sunny day.” From one’s side, all it requires is the willingness to live a better life and the right help is destined to follow automatically.
