Inner Child Therapy

What is Inner Child Therapy, and Can it Help You?

InnerChild-DivineMindInstituteEveryone one of us has an inner child within us… memories of events or experiences from our childhood, often tucked so deep within our subconscious mind that our conscious mind doesn’t always remember them. Although the event may not be consciously remembered, the impact of the event, which is stored in your subconscious, plays an important part in our everyday lives.

These experiences have contributed to your core beliefs, whether about you, someone else or particular situations. They play a big part in the decisions you make and the way you react to different situations. Their effect is triggered by current challenges you may be facing.

Positive experiences from our early childhood, such as praise, encouragement, hugs and kisses from those we love and trust help build your self confidence, self-image and self-esteem.

Negative experiences such as being ignored, physically or verbally abused or being made to feel unnecessary or unwanted can cause emotional damages that may never heal on their own.

Impact of Childhood Trauma

Negative experiences actually wound your inner child, and can prevent you from achieving your full potential as an adult.

Incidents from early childhood trauma can manifest themselves in various ways:

  • Depression
  • Fear
  • Phobias
  • Anger Issues
  • Addictions
  • Lack of Self-Worth
  • Inhibition
  • Self-Defeating Attitude and Actions
  • Guilt
  • Anxiety
  • Weight Issues

How Hypnosis Can help the healing process

Age Regression Therapy - Divine Mind InstituteHypnosis is the perfect therapy to heal a wounded inner child. Hypnosis works with your subconscious mind, the very place your childhood wounds are stored. Using Age regression, you can unlock your past and discover whatever experiences may be holding you back from having the life you dream of.

The key to healing is opening the doors of your memory, and Hypnotherapy can help you do that.

Misophonia

Can Hypnotherapy Help Misophonia?

Misophonia-Divine Mind Insititute“If I hear that sound again, I’m going to scream!”

“Stop making that noise…it’s driving me crazy!”

There are sounds that each of us prefer not to hear…squeaking chalk on the chalkboard…but Misophonia is a condition that is far beyond that.

Misophonia is kind of a funny word, but it’s definitely not a funny condition! It’s an extreme sensitivity to different noises or sounds, not just a mild irritation.

About the Sounds and Noises:

The sounds don’t have to be loud or grating, they are noises we hear everyday. They are typically noises made by other people, and can be as simple as someone clearing their throat, eating or drinking.

These noises can cause you to become irritable, irate and even sometimes irrational.

People who struggle with it often feel:

  • Anxious
  • Angry
  • Depressed
  • Disgusted
  • Rage
  • Stress
  • Panic

These sounds can cause you to avoid people or situations, and if you’re in a situation and the offending noise begins, you might find yourself trying to escape or worse yet, being offensive to the person causing the sound.

Misophonia Interview on 20/20


In the interview it was mentioned that this condition is probably caused by the way the brain is processing the sounds. What better reason to use hypnotherapy, a treatment that works with your subconscious mind?

During your hypnotherapy session, you will be in a relaxed state, where together we can discover what triggers are causing your reaction to specific sounds.

You need to know you are not imagining things, you are not alone and you’re definitely not going crazy! Misophonia is real, and you can get help.

Keep New Years Resolutions

What Keeps You From Keeping New Years’ Resolutions?

Resolutions - Divine Mind InstituteIt’s the first of a New Year, have you made your New Years’ Resolutions?

According to a survey by Franklin Covey, only about 23% of those who make New Years’ resolutions will actually keep them.

Most of us give up way before we even get a good start…usually before the end of January.

It’s tradition at the beginning of the New Year to set new goals for ourselves. Why? Partly because it’s tradition, but mostly because most of us really do want to improve ourselves. We want to:

  • Lose weight
  • Stop smoking
  • Be more patient
  • Be more motivated
  • Be better at our jobs
  • Eat healthier
  • Exercise more
  • Stop unwanted habits

So, if our desire is to improve ourselves…

Why are New Years’ Resolutions so hard to keep?

Often times you make goals without thinking them through, they are overwhelming or maybe they just aren’t the right goals for you. When resolutions are broken, you can begin to feel like a failure, which affects your self-esteem and you begin to lose faith in yourself.

First of all, let me just say, it can be hard to make lasting change. You want to, you know you should, but you forget or you are unaware that something internal can be holding you back and is beyond your conscious control…it is your subconscious mind, which is in total control all of your behaviors.

Hypnotherapy can Help You achieve your resolutions

Happiness in Self Improvement - Divine Mind Institute

Setting positive goals is a good thing, you shouldn’t give up trying to improve yourself. You can end the cycle of breaking resolutions.

Hypnosis combined with NLP are the perfect therapies to help you keep your goals, thereby making the positive life changes that can bring you greater happiness.

While in a hypnotic state, your conscious mind takes the back seat and your subconscious mind is allowed to come forward and is then open to receiving suggestions that will help you make the desired changes.

Your subconscious mind, with the right imagery can help you imagine the person you want to be, and then achieve it.

Hypnosis and Low Self Esteem

Can Hypnosis Help Low Self Esteem?

Low Self Esteem - Divine Mind InstituteWhat’s wrong with me?

I can’t do anything right!

Why can’t I be like…?

Do you find yourself asking these questions? Or maybe you’re aware that one of your children or another loved one is pretty “hard” on themselves.

As a rule, you are your own worst critic, but when your “inner critic” is too harsh too often, you can end up underachieving, lonely and isolated, your health can suffer and the feeling of hopelessness can take over. You have low self esteem when:

  • Your good points are overlooked
  • You can’t put past mistakes in the past
  • You are unable to handle criticism
  • You are afraid to try new things socially, academically or career-wise
  • To sum it up, your quality of life is negatively affected

Your self esteem – your opinion of yourself and who you are – plays an extremely important part in how you live your life.

What causes low self esteem?

Bullying Promotes Low Self Esteem - Divine Mind InstituteOften it appears in children or adults who grew up in dysfunctional family situations where they may have been abused or neglected. Or maybe they were bullied or picked on in school. It could also be attributed to a non-abusive parent who has low self esteem themselves, and as we all know, children pick up the characteristics and traits of their parents.

But all low self esteem doesn’t come from childhood. Many adults can be faced with traumatic experiences that can cause negative feelings about yourself. They could be caused by:

  • Career problems
  • Financial problems
  • Failed relationships

Facing these types of  life challenges causes us all to take a good hard look at ourselves, and that’s all right. But if too much time is spent dwelling on or obsessing over them, self-confidence begins to suffer and self esteem is lost.

How can Hypnotherapy help?

We are all different, which means the reasons for low self esteem and the approach  to building self esteem is different for everyone. That is why hypnotherapy is a great approach. Each person is assessed individually to connect with who you really are, to develop a greater sense of self, and build greater belief in yourself. It can help you see yourself through different eyes.

Hypnosis is a way of re-educating your subconscious mind so you will be more in control of your life.

Isn’t it time to start your journey to a positive self image and move past the negative?

Age Regression

What is Age Regression Therapy?

Age Regression Therapy - Divine Mind InstituteIn the world of Hypnotherapy, age regression therapy is a very direct and effective tool that is used to help access memories, feelings and thoughts from your childhood. These memories, thoughts and feelings are stored in your sub-conscious mind and are unconsciously carried forward from earlier times in our lives and can negatively impact our present life.

They are often the keys that unlock the source of unwanted behaviors.

Age regression therapy, though not a time machine, can help reveal sources of behaviors that are rooted in your past such as:

  • Overeating
  • Fears and Phobias
  • Smoking
  • PTSD and other stresses
  • Poor relationships
  • Anxieties
  • Depression
  • Bad habits
  • Insomnia
  • Hypochondria
  • Anger Issues

The Goal of Age Regression

The goal of age regression is to recall the details of the event that has created a sub-conscious “trigger”  resulting in a conscious behavior.

You enter age regression through hypnosis in an attempt to deal with unresolved issues from your past…issues that have had a negative effect on your current life. As you are guided back to an earlier time, these buried events and memories are brought to the surface, and recovery can commence:

  • Age Regression Key - Divine Mind InstituteThe event may be viewed as if from a distance
  • You will be able to reprocess your experience
  • Deal with your memories objectively
  • You can gain a better understanding of the events and people of your experience
  • Past Emotional scarring can be released
  • You can move from a negative past into a positive present and future

Because it is a very personal, intimate and sometimes intense type of therapy, it is extremely important that you have a good and trusting relationship with your hypnotherapist.

Start your journey to achieving postive things in your life as you move past the negative…

Get Motivated

What Does it Take to Get You Motivated?

Get Motivated - Divine Mind Institute“Life takes on meaning when you become motivated, set goals and charge after them in an unstoppable manner.” – Les Brown

Are you one of those motivated people who jump out of bed in the morning ready to tackle the world?

Or are you someone that struggles with moving forward either in individual tasks or with life in general?

Lack of motivation often looks like lack of ambition. You may

  • Not be motivated to learn
  • Not be motivated to take on more responsibility
  • Not be motivated to tackle challenges
  • Not be motivated to make positive changes in your life:
    • Weight loss
    • Stop smoking
    • Getting more exercise

Motivation is about attitude

What motivates you to make changes, overcome obstacles or become more responsible?

Not everyone is naturally motivated…it often takes a reward or sometimes even a threat to get you going.

The smoker may develop a health problem or the person who wants to lose weight may want to look good for a special vacation.

Lack of Motivation - Divine Mind InstituteBut even those “motivators” don’t keep you going.

Keeping your attitude in a motivated state can be challenging as our subconscious mind takes over and puts up barriers or roadblocks to our success and causing you to lose focus on your goal.

You Can Get Control, Get Motivated and Stay Motivated

Hypnosis is an amazing tool that can put you in charge of your life, and help you be motivated to achieve your goals, whether you want to excel in sports, at work, in school or stop biting your nails.

Hypnotherapy works with your subconscious,  the most powerful part of your mind. It helps recognize those barriers that keep you from success and then helps you visualize what success will look like through the power of suggestion. It will give you the motivating drive to make the positive changes you want and become the person you always knew you could be.

By using Hypnotherapy you will be able to become more open to the possibilities, believe in yourself, be more motivated and have a more positive outlook.

Start your journey to achieving great things in your life…

Insomnia

Could Hypnotherapy Help Your Insomnia?

Counting Sheep for Insomnia - Divine Mind InstituteHave you tried counting sheep, reading or watching television trying to drift off to sleep? Do any of those things work? Do you go to sleep only to wake up a few hours later and find you are unable to go back to sleep? Do you often awaken in the morning still feeling overly tired?

Everyone spends a restless or sleepless night sometime or another, but when it is a nightly occurrence, it can become a problem for you.

These are possible signs of insomnia, which is the inability to fall asleep or remain asleep in order to get enough rest and wake up feeling refreshed in the morning.

Insomnia is not respecter of persons or age, and can be long or short termed.

Insomnia changes your life. People who suffer from insomnia are often:

  • Fatigued
  • Irritable
  • Have memory loss or problems concentrating
  • Feel depressed
  • Are more prone to accidents
  • Have an increased risk of heart disease
  • Develop Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS)
  • Develop sleep apnea

Although for those who don’t experience insomnia, it may not sound like a serious condition, but its side effects can be very serious.

Two Types of Insomnia

  • Hypnosis for Insomnia - Divine Mind InstitutePrimary Insomnia does not occur as a result of other medical issues you might be experiencing, although it may be triggered by events in your life such as stress or change.
  •  Secondary Insomnia is typically a side effect of some underlying problem:
    • Health conditions
    • Pain
    • Arthritis
    • Cancer
    • Depression
    • Heartburn
    • Medication
    • Anxiety
    • Tobacco, Caffeine or Alcohol

Many people, as they try to cope with their inability to get quality restful sleep, will often begin worrying about not sleeping or doing things like trying to go to bed too early, or even turn to medication. Medications must be taken at the appropriate time before going to bed, and may often leave you feeling  unrefreshed and groggy in the morning. Depending on medication becomes an expensive and undesirable crutch.

Hypnotherapy is a safe and effective way that will help you address any issues that may be causing your insomnia as it helps you understand and focus on thoughts that can help change past learned behaviors.

Hypnosis combined with NLP are powerful tools that have been recognized as being very effective in changing habits, they can help you break the cycle of sleepless nights and get the sleep you need and want.
