I received a number of personal e-mails regarding fear and stress and how people are dealing with the things in their lives, whether it be a new born baby keeping you up all night, or ever surmounting bills to be paid, and for some it was dreading going into work for a "petty jealous micro-managing boss." That was sort of the jist of things.
Before I give you instructions for self hypnosis I would like to say how very moved I was by such honest e-mails. And although the fearful and stressful situations are very different from each other the psychological and physiological reactions are the same. So for those of you who are new at this let me keep it nice and easy. Go to a quite comfortable spot and close your eyes, let's begin.
Breathe slowly and deeply into the abdomen, fill your belly with air, let it become round and soft.(most people try to fill their lungs, draw your breath deep in to the belly)
Focus the mind on a word or phrase," calm" or "I can handle this" should work for most people.Continue until your breath is rhythmic.
Now using your mind scan your body for any place holding tension and on the exhale ,release, just allow all the tension to relax and release from your body.(the mind and body can only heal when it is in a relaxed state.)
when you have reached a state of deep relaxation take a moment and really feel how good it is, know that at any time you have the ability to bring yourself back to this feeling.
I hope this helps.
