Mind-Body-Spirit Wellness And The Search For Powerful New Health

Category:General | Mind Body Spirit

The mind-body-spirit debate has developed into a well known researched fact over the past decade. While there has always been some amount of contribution given to the mindset of any patient, only recently has the concept of caring for the “entire self” become a common practice in today’s modern medicine and prevention programs. Mind-body-spirit wellness has reached new levels of inclusive factors for today’s health conscious individuals. Holistic health has finally reached acceptance in many offices of doctors and practitioners of medicine.

The power of caring for one’s entire body is really quite impressively powerful. Individuals who have opted for total mind-body-spirit wellness have been able to determine great levels of health and energy within their own framework by allowing their entire being into account. Studies on the power of the mind have shown some shocking results, the effects have been proven to be of course, mind-blowing.

Holistic health is essential in providing high quality total care for your self, your family, and your overall well being. Studies have proven that holistic health practices have dramatically reduced the number and frequency of illnesses related to common every day exposure. School children living in mind-body-spirit wellness focused homes miss less than half of the school days due to illness than that of their classmates still living in traditional Western medicine focused homes.

Accounts of real world individuals being able to provide testimony to the effects of holistic health practices on their daily lives are continuously increasing. Many individuals offer that the mind-body-spirit wellness approach to life has given them not only their physical health back, but their emotional health as well. For those who place more emphasis on the testimony of physicians and health care practitioners, there are an increasing number of offices that practice mind-body-spirit wellness as part of their routine care.

Holistic health and the mind-body-spirit wellness approach to life has also opened up a while new industry for the entrepreneurial spirit. Many manufacturers feel that it has been nothing short of a blessing to fully endorse their product without doubting the word of their advertisers. There is a vast and endless ocean of new and improved products which adhere to holistic health practices and principles which have emerged onto the market as of late, and for the most part, these products actually do what they say they are going to do. Of course, we wouldn’t be an enterprising society if a few unscrupulous manufacturers didn’t sneak in there for their piece of this multi billion dollar industry. Our culture responded appropriately by deeming specific authorities on the topic to be the final word in quality and effectiveness.

By developing institutes that focus completely on mind-body-spirit wellness and awareness, there has been a successful and remarkable overhaul in the basic integrity of holistic health materials and products. While of course there are still some scam factories out there, the vast majority of holistic health companies want to be part of this ever growing, popular, and health enhancing trend that is changing the lives and souls of everyone involved.

Holistic health products that are able to make claims of providing “miracle” results are generally not considered to be authentic products endorsed or even recognized by any authority of holistic health practices. Rather, while there have been case reports regarding “miraculous results” on an individual basis, the mind-body-spirit wellness community does not promote grand promises but instruction, focus, and of course, directives that help individuals enhance their mind-body-spirit connection. Very few products on the holistic health market today receive genuine endorsements or “approval” from these authorities. Those that do have not only been proven to deliver what they promise, but also meet a strict standard of what constitutes and actual holistic health product.

As the mind-body-spirit wellness and awareness movement grows and matures over the next few years, there is bound to be growth in numerous areas of product development. What has reached the market now can be considered to be some remarkable enhancements in the holistic health practice. In fact, there have been a few products which not only earn the endorsement of leading authorities, but actually are not expected to be able to be produced better than they are right now. This is a pretty bold statement considering that technology and education will never be static yet those few products out there that are being praised and sung by the leading authorities have literally taken the holistic health product market by storm.

Real Self-Hypnosis Explained By A Hypnotherapist And How It Differs From Self-Hypnosis Downloads

Category:General | Self Hypnosis

Real self-hypnosis is when you enter the hypnotic state by yourself and you use it to achieve your own goals. Real self-hypnosis is when you are your own therapist, it is when you are deep in a trance and you use it the way you want to use it. It is completely different from the passive listening to a self-hypnosis CD, when you let someone else’s voice lead you.

Real, active self-hypnosis may be compared to surfing a wave – you catch the wave and you ride it, and you steer your own board. You use the wave and its power, and you are on top of it. First you learn how to catch a wave, and then you can learn how to ride it better and better. In this same way you can learn to enter the hypnotic state first, and then learn the techniques to use your mind to its fullness and enjoy its power.

What is a hypnotic state? What is hypnosis itself?

Hypnosis is a natural state of mind. I am sure that you have been in hypnosis many times without knowing it. This is when you are focused on something so strongly that nothing else exists. For example, most people go into a trance when they dance: the focus is on the music and on the dance itself and it all flows. Try to dance when you are in a normal state, conscious of your body and your steps – it feels awkward, you miss the steps and your body is stiff.

The essence of hypnosis is the intense concentration on the chosen subject and the exclusion of everything else. It is like a beam of light which allows you to access the resources of your mind that are normally hidden in the dark. All that you need to learn is to catch this beam of light and use it to activate the part of your mind that you want to activate. When you learn how to do it yourself, you’ve learned real self-hypnosis.

How can you learn real self-hypnosis?

There are many ways to learn self-hypnosis, and there are many schools and many books written. With some approaches, especially when learned from books or by meditation, it can take years to master.

The best way to learn self-hypnosis is from within the hypnotic state. The experienced hypnotherapist can teach you the basic self-hypnosis technique in just one session. When you are in a deep hypnotic state, you are given suggestions how to do it yourself. Then you do it under the guidance of the hypnotherapist, to make sure you understand every step.

Once you learn how to enter the hypnotic state and stay there by yourself, you can learn more advanced techniques: first how to give yourself suggestions, then more advanced techniques like pain control, self-healing, techniques for studying, awareness-raising techniques and much more. Self-hypnosis is one of the best coaching tools as it allows you to train and rehearse in the hypnotic state, mastering the skills to perfection.

What are the limitations of self-hypnosis?

Sometimes a problem may be too complex to be solved in the self mode. If the problem affects you on a high level and causes strong personal distress, it is better to seek professional help. When you are deeply depressed, in trauma, in crisis, or in the power of a destructive habit, you need outside professional help which combines counselling with personalised therapy.

You need to also be cautious when healing the medical condition or removing pain and any physical symptoms. It is important that you do it under medical supervision and you tell your doctor if you have removed the symptoms.

How real hypnosis differs from listening to self-hypnosis audio?

There are many self-hypnosis CDs, some of them just teaching how to relax, and some claiming help and instant fixes in many areas, including lifelong phobias and past life regression. The relaxing, general wellbeing hypnosis CDs may be very beneficial, and if you enjoy them, keep enjoying. However, if listening to them becomes a chore and is boring, perhaps you should listen to some nice music because you will relax more when you enjoy what you hear.

When you listen to a self-hypnosis CD, you simply relax and let someone else’s voice lead you. In most cases you just listen to someone’s suggestions, and, yes, you learn to relax, and sometimes it even helps you deal with the particular issue it promises to help. There are many sophisticated self-hypnosis recordings that can put you deep into a trance – you can experience a great ride on the top of the wave – but it is not self-hypnosis, you are riding in somebody else’s boat, you are given somebody else’s solutions.

Sometimes, listening to a hypnotic CD may be dangerous. You need to know the limitations of self-hypnosis before you start listening to the self-hypnosis CD, especially the more sophisticated ones which may put you in a deep trance. If you are in a trauma, if you are experiencing strong depression or anxiety, and especially if you have any form of psychosis, a deep trance may be dangerous and can create strong distress.

The essential difference between real self-hypnosis and listening to a hypnosis CD is the active role which you take in real self-hypnosis. You enter the hypnotic state by yourself; you use it your own way, accessing your own unique resources the way it best works for you. The experience is very empowering itself, boosts self-confidence and enlightens. Real self-hypnosis simply works and it is very powerful because you know yourself best, you can create the powerful suggestions, you will use your own words which work for you, or you can even skip the words and just use your imagination – you can feel the suggestions instead of saying them.

Real, active self-hypnosis is the most empowering self-help method available. Every self-help method is based on self-hypnosis; every self-help method teaches how to use the power of the mind or uses suggestion to achieve goals; every self-healing method is based on self-hypnosis. When using real self-hypnosis, you can learn to access every aspect of your mind, you can use your mind to connect with your body and to heal it, you can access the troubling emotions and fears and clear them, and you can access the spiritual parts of your mind and expand your awareness.
