Procrastination, Stop Negative thoughts, Stress Relief Solutions No Comments »

So many people wish they had a way to stop their mind from racing with thoughts.  In this article and audio that goes with it,

you’ll get a number of tips on tools that you can use stop thoughts that cause stress, embarrassment, anger and self-doubt.

 
Question : What do I do when I start to feel negative thoughts or start feeling down?   How do I get out of that mindset and start thinking positive? A lot of people say to think positive thoughts, etc but if it were that easy wouldn’t everyone just do that?  Any suggestions would be appreciated.
 
Click on the link below, to hear a more about using your mind in a more positive way.

 
What you can do to pull yourself out of the negative mindset.
1. Pick one specific situation where you are have negative thoughts
2. Notice the feeling you get after you have a negative thought
3.  Notice where in your body you get the feeling that comes with negative thoughts.
4. Listen to the negative thought, and ask yourself ” I wonder what this feeling is about”
Mistake people make is when they say “Why am I feeling this way”
5 Negative thoughts are of different types:
a. Thoughts that tear down our self-confidence
b. Thoughts that are conversations we would have with someone who hurt us.
c. Thoughts of revenge after someone made you angry
d. Thoughts that grow, the first thought lead to the next thought.  You then react as if the 1st negative is true, and that leads
to more anger or upset.  It is typically the circular movement of the thoughts that continue to expand until you’ve created a whole
circle of more and more upset.
 
6.  There are many different tools that can be used to get relief from negative thoughts.
The 3 primary types of tools are:
a.   Cognitive tools – for example the –  2 for 1 technique
b.   Physical body-mind tools –  Changing the breathing pattern
c.   Emotional clearing tools – Tracking the feeling back to the root, to the first time you ever felt that way.
This is a hypnotic technique and it is the one that I have found makes the most difference.  Because when you change it at the root, you
are clearing out the emotions, the limiting beliefs and the old triggers.
 
Under each type of tool there are 20 or more different techniques that can be used.  Click here for an overview.

Quick Tip: Steps To Stop Procrastination

Small Changes Make Big Differences

Have you found yourself procrastinating on things you want to do?  If so, you are actually using your creativity, unfortunately in the negative direction.   A creative mind can come up with all sorts of reasons and thoughts about scary outcomes, why it won’t work,  how it isn’t the right time, or how whatever you want to accomplish won’t be good enough.

However, have you noticed that once you finally get yourself to take some action, that things start flowing?   It seems that when you make the choice to sit down and take even the smallest step, something magical happens.  The negative voice gets quieter, and you find yourself settling into the task.  When days or weeks later the task is done, you feel great.  If you were to look back to the first action step, you’d see that it gave you momentum with each small step.   Accomplishing even the smallest step in the right direction will move you toward your goal.

If you ever procrastinate about doing something, experiment with this exercise.

  1. Think about something you procrastinate about.
  2. Use the mind calming exercise at www.anxietycontrolcenter.com/stress-breath
    to help you to focus inward, and calm your mind.
  3. Be curious.  Take a moment to listen-in to your thoughts.
    What are you saying to yourself right before you decided to procrastinate?
  4.  Notice any emotions that you are feeling.
    Changing the procrastination habit:
  5. As you focus in on your thoughts and emotions, stay curious, in this curious state of mind you can access information about what is underneath the thoughts and emotions.
  6. Are there any smaller steps toward your goal, that you could take.
  7. Next, think about this: What would you need (emotionally), that would it easier to take the steps towards the goal you desire?  What thoughts would be more beneficial in moving you towards your goal?
  8. This next step is a self-hypnotic technique called, Deep Trance Identification.  In this technique you think of someone who towards what they want with ease.  Then imagine that you are looking through that persons eyes, feeling what they feel as they take steps.  Notice what they are feeling and thinking that makes it easy for them to take steps in the direction of goals.Experiment trying on enhancing feelings and thoughts.
  9. And next pretend or imagine that you already have what is needed to move ahead. It might be confidence, trust, joy or an inner sense that all will be alright.

Relief from overwhelm, hopelessness and fear: Step 1

Depression, Fear - Anxiety - Worry - Panic, Procrastination Comments Off on Relief from overwhelm, hopelessness and fear: Step 1

Blueprint for hope and optimism

Today we’ll be looking at 2 questions about feeling hopeless, fearful and overwhelmed.  After a step-by-step plan for my clients, I decided to put some of my answers into the next few posts.  People don’t need to suffer with churning, harmful thoughts, I hope you enjoy these posts and if you have question just contact me on the tab on the side of this page.

Question 1:  This week I’m feeling anxiety again.  After our sessions I usually  leave feeling like a new person. Like there is a ray of light.  But this week I’m feeling like I will never get better.  It feels like there isn’t any hope for true relief.  I feel like I’m backsliding into anxiety and fear.    I followed up on 2 of my action steps and started to be fearful about moving ahead with my plans.  What is wrong with me?

Question 2: I’m feeling disconnected, whenever I start to feel good, I start monitoring my body for signs of anxiety.  I can be really happy and at ease, then I start to check to see if I am really feeling that way, within moments the good feelings disappear.  That’s when I get disconnected.  Even though I find I’m calmer physically my thoughts still get overwhelming.

Is there an effective strategy for breaking the cycle of monitoring my thoughts, that you can give me until we meet again?

The following answers will be a combination answer to both Questions: Today I’ll start with step 1, and in the upcoming days the next steps will be given.

Answer:  Dear Rennith (fictional name).
I am happy to see that you did give yourself a bit of credit for the relief you did feel recently.  That is a glimpse of the positive changes you are capable of.    It is my desire teach you the tools you need so that you once again will feel optimistic and hopeful.

Steps for hope and optimism:

Step 1:  Start jotting things down that would have to happen to make you feel hopeful.   Not just the major changes, but also the smallest “things” that would “have to”  change for you to feel even the tiniest bit of hope.  (This way you’ll start to notice the smallest changes in the positive direction and be able to remind yourself that there is movement in the right direction.

We’ve talked about the times recently, where you felt a “reprieve” from overwhelm and anxiety.  Think back to those times you felt the changes starting to happen, where you felt different and better.

Fear, negative thinking and checking your feelings are all old patterns. It’s interesting that the upset resurfaced when you were feeling happy. I imagine that the  “little voice “in the back of your mind started giving you negative messages, such as telling you that  nothing was changing.

When that pattern happens the old panic cycle gets going as you think about all the reasons that you are afraid, stuck or that nothing will change.

Stuffed Emotions Cause Pain, Self-Doubt and Procrastination

Procrastination Comments Off on Stuffed Emotions Cause Pain, Self-Doubt and Procrastination

You Can Stop Worry, Pain and Fear
Use the Mind-Body Connection

The link for the Free 7-minute video
for Calming the Mind is at the bottom of this page.

Have you wondered if stress is the cause of your bodily symptoms?  What I have found is that the body and mind are connected.  What happens in one part will affect the other parts.  

For example: When you stuff down a feeling of anger, worry or fear – it doesn’t just disappear.  It gets stored in the body. Over time, as the emotions continue to be pushed down they accumulate. Each of us has a different part of the body where we stuff emotional upset. That is why some people have stomach or bowel issues, whereas others will feel pain in the back, head or chest.

It is the accumulation of stuffed emotions that trigger bodily symptoms and reactions.   If you have ever found yourself blowing up after a small upset, or felt a gut wrenching feeling after someone hurts your feelings, this is a sign of an accumulation of stuffed emotions that volcano out of control.  This overreaction isn’t your fault, the reason a small incident triggers a severe or unwanted reaction is that it isn’t just one situation you are responding to.  It is the whole chain of emotions that get triggered.  Sometimes these stuffed emotions have been collected all the way back in childhood. 

You’ve probably heard the saying, “that was the last straw”.  After saying this a person will go on to tell you of how that small thing triggered a major blowup. This is a perfect example of emotions that have been accumulating and then the smallest distress triggers a reaction, way out of proportion to the upset.

When stuffed emotions lead to IBS, stomach, head pain or other bodily symptoms, it is the way your body signals that something is off kilter.   I have seen my clients get instant relief from stomach and other pain using cognitive-behavioral-hypnosis, because when we clear the accumulated emotions the body is freed of pain. 

Repressed and stuffed emotions can also lead to a racing mind, anxiety, procrastination, worry, overwhelm, insomnia and feeling stuck. 

Once cleared it is possible to change unwanted patterns. I’ve been helping people with my Transformation System using Cognitive-Behavioral-Hypnosis for 30 years.   It gives us a way to communicate directly to the unconscious part of the mind.  The unconscious is the part of the mind that holds your memories, as well as the solutions.  This is the part that needs to be accessed to in order to release emotions that are at the root of bodily symptoms of pain.  Over the years working with people I have had the joy of helping people to get relief, even from the terrible burden and pain of Fibromyalgia.  

Symptoms are not the cause but the result of something going on underneath the surface of conscious awareness.  That is why it is almost impossible to get lasting change with just cognitive techniques.  Since symptoms are just the tip of the iceberg, we need to go deeper of the underlying stored emotions to get lasting change.

One technique that is useful to get to get relief from pain, is to use the feeling of pain to track back to the very first event where emotion was stuffed into the body causing pain.  We call this the root of the problem.  In a light trance state unconscious information just seems to pop into the mind.  then it is possible to heal the pain at the very root event.    Even if you aren’t aware (on a conscious level) of anger, sadness, hurt or other stuffed emotion your unconscious mind does have a record of it.  The unconscious part of the mind holds the answers to true cause of the many types of physical pain.

Releasing the emotions held since childhood is actually a very quick process, once you know how to talk the language of the unconscious mind.

RECAP: Procrastination, fear, worry, and panic represents just the tip of the iceberg. What is really important is below the surface of conscious awareness. Using the Transformation System gives us a way to access the unconscious and release old stuffed emotions and re-program unwanted reactions.  It is possible to get lasting relief from trauma, sadness, anger, worry, panic, sadness, guilt and fear.   

 How to know if
underlying stuffed emotions are affecting you?

If you feel:

Anxiety, Worry, Fear
Frozen or Stuck
Difficulty focusing 
Heart pounding, Racing Mind
Overwhelm,  procrastination
Pain, IBS, Migraines

Then: Stuffed Emotions Are Getting in Your Way
