About Anxiety…

Typically, anxiety is triggered by stress and causes nervousness, worrying, apprehension, and fear. These disorders not only manifest themselves in how we act and feel, but they can cause physical symptoms (like the ones mentioned above) that are very real.

Anxiety affects you through:

  • Your thoughts – obsessing over the “what ifs”, such as “What if I forget….”
  • Your Actions – you look for any excuse to avoid the stressful situation
  • Your Physical Feelings – racing heart beat, nausea, dizziness….

Just think of all the things your anxiety keeps you from accomplishing or enjoying. It limits your potential…It limits your life!

 

Hypnotherapy can help you control your anxiety

Coping With Stress

How Can You Cope With Post Traumatic Stress Disorder?

Coping With Stress - Divine Mind InstitutePost Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD, is a very real condition, one that is difficult to understand unless you have experienced it yourself or have observed it in someone close to you.

It’s hard to believe that someone with PTSD is in such emotional pain and anxiety, feels so totally alone, and feels that no one cares or understands.

Once called Battle Fatigue or Shell Shock, PTSD can have serious and lasting consequences if not dealt with. The symptoms can change a person’s quality of life.

Oftentimes adding to their stress, PTSD victims wonder why they aren’t coping better, which leads them to try to hide their sorrow, depression or stress.

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.

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…

Anger Problems

Do You Have Anger Problems?

Anger Problems - Divine Mind InstituteBeing angry is a natural, healthy emotion we all experience it at one time or another. In fact, it is a necessary emotion for self preservation.

It’s when your anger takes over and you lose control, that’s when it becomes a problem. That’s when your anger is in control of you.

Anger manifests in different degrees, from very mild and irritated to extreme rage…which is when it becomes a very destructive issue leading to emotional, physical and mental problems.

The Effect of Anger Problems

  • Work performance

Anger can cause:

  • Stress
  • Elevated heart rate
  • Sleeplessness

Controlling your Anger

Anger is an emotion that can be hard to control, and you can be angry at things, people or situations. It can be dealt with in different ways; you can try calming exercises, you can try expressing your anger to the offender or you can try to suppress it and keep it bottled inside.

Bottled Up Anger - Divine Mind InstituteKeeping your anger bottled up is not a good option, because you are not letting go of the feelings, and they won’t just go away.

If you have ever been around a person who is extremely angry, someone who seems out of control, you have probably thought to yourself…”relax, just let it go”. Which is exactly what they can’t do. They can’t release the anger.

That is where hypnotherapy can be a great tool, it can help you let go of your anger. Hypnosis helps the mind and body to totally relax and communicate with your subconscious mind. It is then that you may discover why you react to things the way you do, and retrain the way you think to be able to deal with people and situations in a calmer and more acceptable way.

Take back control of your life – let go of your anger – lead a happier life

Imagine your life without anger!
