Post-Hypnotic Suggestion to Overcome Anxiety

New York Hypnotherapy and Lavender Oil Anchor

I once worked with a woman who came to me to overcome the anxiety she associated with seeing her daughter-in-law. She experienced an over-all negative state, which hindered her from expressing herself and simply having a good time with family when they gathered for dinners. I asked what she wanted to feel instead. She said that she didn’t want to feel a sudden liking of this woman or any friendship yet. She simply wanted to feel at ease. She wanted to be comfortable enough to interact normally with her family without constantly experiencing an unpleasant anxiety when she looked at or tried to speak with her daughter-in-law.

I asked her to recall a memory from the past when she felt total bliss and happiness. She said it was with her kids when they were small and they were all lying in bed together. At that moment her life felt worth living.

I explained to her how creating a specific anchor and associating it with this positive memory could help her deal with her anxiety. She could use a trigger associated with this memory and use it every time she was near her daughter-in-law. Over time this would naturally replace her state of anxiousness.  I also suggested some examples of different anchors she could use. She chose an olfactory anchor of lavender oil.

I hypnotized her into trance state and guided her back in time to her memory of when she was with her kids in bed, full of happiness and joy. She gently smelled lavender oil with her eyes closed, as I brought it near her nose. We did this a few times, so that the lavender oil anchor could be naturally and efficiently associated with the state of ease, comfort and peace.

A few days later she told me that she had dinner with her family and her daughter-in-law. She put a little bit of lavender oil on her wrist. Whenever she needed to experience the state of calm and ease, she simply smelled her wrist and felt very positive. She was able to interact and communicate and make choices from a very powerful and positive place of peace and love. This became a powerful post-hypnotic suggestion with a little aid of lavender oil anchor.

Crisis Management and Hypnosis

Every nation, every society, every human – every form of life at once ( at least) is met with crisis. How you respond to it and what choices you make in the aftermath – is what determines your success.

What is crisis? “Crisis is any event that is, or expected to lead to, an unstable and dangerous situation affecting an individual, group, community or whole society. Crises are deemed to be negative changes in the security, economic, political, societal or environmental affairs, especially when they occur abruptly, with little or no warning.” ( Wikipedia)

In personal crisis, it is common to witness certain external systems, like business partnerships, marriage, relationships, work place  and etc– crashing; and certain personal beliefs about relationships, road to success, survival, parenting, and simply how the world works or should work – also crashing as they no longer provide the desired result. When crisis comes, it shakes up your external modules and mental model of the world.

During such difficult times people tend to fall into depression and despair, everything they believed in and found stable or secure has come to a halt.  Questions arise that can’t be answered right away. It is also common for people to start making fast decisions, which are usually based on fear, insecurity and desperation. Any decision made from such negative place results in a prolonged crisis or simply another dreadful circumstance.

Instead, it is wise to take advantage of the crisis and begin to examine your life and your personal model of the world. It’s ok to doubt this model. It’s OK to crash it. In fact, it has already begun to crash, on its own, hence the crisis.

When crisis comes, literally, PAUSE. Put your panic, your fears and instability on hold.

When I work with clients who deal with critical situations life, I guide them to meditate deeply and help them draw upon their inner recourses to attain internal piece and alignment despite the dreadful circumstances. From that place of strength and power you can begin to make better and bolder decisions, which will help you rise out of ashes of crisis.

You will be surprised how the new opportunity maybe knocking at the back door. The solution to problem maybe lingering in the distant corner of your beautiful mind.
