Falling in love with someone is one of life’s most thrilling roller coasters, with the ability to take you through the highest highs as well as the lowest lows. When relationships end, feelings of sadness, desolation, and hopelessness are common.
However, even during these emotions of grief and despair, you may find that you still cannot stop thinking about this specific person obsessively. The feelings you invested in the relationship do not magically disappear.
There are moments you will long to be with this person while other times, you will think they were not worthy of your love, leaving your heart broken and your eyes in tears.
You experience sleepless nights, pushing you to over-indulge in particular stimulants, like alcohol and drugs. Other people also opt to over-eat as a way to dampen their emotions; however, other than adding to your weight, it does not help.
Perhaps, hypnosis is the perfect solution for this situation.
How can hypnosis help you to get over someone?
After a break-up, you are likely to be still fascinated with the other person, and infatuation is similar to addiction. Despite the pain, you still find yourself thinking about them and the future you had imagined with them.
When you fall in love, the brain produces large amounts of dopamine, a feel-good neurotransmitter often associated with compulsions.
Luckily, you can get over this feeling the same way people get over extreme urges. Hypnotherapy is a common solution to break all types of addictive habits, including over-eating, smoking cigarettes, and excessive drinking of alcohol, among others.
It is a quick and efficient way of solving some of the toughest issues affecting people on a personal level. Hypnosis can help you get rid of those obsessive thoughts experienced after a break-up and calm down your emotions, helping you to deal with the situation better and gradually forgetting them.
This powerful process changes your emotional state in permanent ways.
Celebrities like Katy Perry and Cheryl Cole have admitted to using hypnosis to get over their ex-husbands, and it has proven effective and long-lasting to date.
You, too, can experience this exquisite technique, forgetting about your ex in no time and moving on with your life. Modern hypnotherapists combine counseling, cognitive behavioral therapy, and mind-control to procure successful sessions.
When going through a break-up, these hypnosis sessions help individuals release deeply-rooted issues at a subconscious level. It allows your conscious mind to retain the positive self-talk that enables you to move from a problematic situation.
Hypnotherapy undoes the repetitive film that goes on in your mind after a break-up to allow you to get back to a purposeful and meaningful life full of hope and optimism.
How is hypnosis different from counseling?
Everyone experiences heartbreaks at some point in their life. Whether it is losing a loved one, or a break-up from a long or short-term relationship or even disappointment from a crush, the feelings involved in heartbreaks are often similar.
As a result, different people have different ways of dealing with such situations.
Some may be healthier than others, but all of them are coping mechanisms. Some people may prefer going for counseling sessions while others believe in the power of hypnosis.
Counseling sessions provide you with a safe place to talk about your issues, allowing your conscious mind to feel through the emotions that are common during heartbreaks.
As a result, you may end up feeling enlightened and leaving the session with new ways to cope with your feelings. Hypnotherapy sessions involve changing the way you are thinking and feeling about specific things or people on a deeper level.
Hypnosis allows you to move forward and leave behind the feelings common to heartbreak, by accessing your subconscious mind and getting you unstuck from previous strong emotions for your ex-partner.
Hypnotherapy changes the thoughts in your subconscious mind and reinforces positive self-talk in the conscious mind.
Hypnosis techniques to help you get over someone
Relationships give life meaning. However, they can also drain us of our being, making us regret why we got involved with certain people, especially if they were the wrong people.
Fortunately, hypnotherapy can assist you in moving to a healthier frame of mind after a nasty breakup. It aids in resetting an individual’s emotions so that they can feel better about themselves and attract a better and healthier relationship.
Several techniques come into play when you are trying to get over someone using hypnosis. They include:
1. Fear-releasing techniques
Facing your fears is a vital part of the recovery process after a breakup. When two people are in a relationship, they become so accustomed to each other that they plan their daily activities as well as their future around their partner.
When these two individuals breakup, moving forward and starting over with a different person is overwhelming, and at times, unthinkable. It becomes even more challenging to move on when an individual becomes fearful of repeating old relationship patterns.
Professional hypnotists help their clients face their fears and release old emotional baggage they may have from their previous relationships.
By acknowledging and embracing their fears, the client is likely to gather enough strength to break away and move beyond negative relationship cycles.
A popular fear-releasing technique in hypnosis is the Tibetan Monk Facing Your Fears Technique. This technique originates from the practice of ancient Monks, where they spend time in a remote and quiet place to focus and visualize their fears.
Make your clients imagine they are in a secluded and peaceful place as they take 2-3 deep breaths to calm and center their energy. It helps when you focus on one fear per session for more effective results.
But first, find out what your client believes is holding them back when it comes to relationships and love. Once you find out this information, help your client visualize that in the remote and quiet place exists their fear.
Ask them to give this fear a personality, color, shape, or a certain feeling. Ask them also to provide the fear with a particular feeling and texture. From there, ask them how the fear manifests itself or in what conditions does it thrive.
Encourage them that they have the ultimate power over their fears, meaning they can easily tame these fears. Give the client enough time to tame and get comfortable with the fear.
Advice the client on the best way to persevere and overcome this fear, while reassuring them of the success and joy one feels after triumphing this fear.
2. Cultivating self-love
Have you ever heard that it is best to spend time alone so that you can fall back in love with yourself? Contrary to popular belief, spending some time nurturing and loving yourself after a nasty breakup is therapeutic for your soul and your being.
Working on your person and spending a few months alone works miracles when it comes to relationships and love. Work on creating self-love affirmations.
Advice your client to put together a list of their positive traits as it reprograms the subconscious into feeling they are worthy of love.
When your client reconnects with their positive attributes, they realize they are worthy of love, and it phases out old and outdated fears, setting the stage for future healthy relationships.
Revivification involves tapping into the subconscious mind of an individual to access an attribute or skill that helps them deal with a present issue. It consists of re-living a specific experience in your client’s life to access the relevant resources.
The primary focus of this technique is to take your client back to a pleasant experience and revivify it. The process of revivification involves four significant steps. They include:
- Initial orienting questions: The hypnotist acquires information about the enjoyable experience from the client. It consists of asking where, when, and what happened as well as how it made them feel.
- Echo effect: As soon as you get the answers you want, echo them to reflect them to your client.
- Slowly transition to the present time: As you echo the client’s answers, smoothly switch to the present tense. Often, this switch goes unnoticed as the client is deeply engrossed in remembering the experience.
- Ask, ‘what happens next?’:Keep asking your client, ‘what happens next,’ to keep the story going while filling in the details you require. It helps when you ask this question in different ways to prevent monotony. Do not forget to echo the answers in the present tense.
Hypnosis comes in handy when you want to put things into perspective and view a previous or future relationship in a new and positive light.
Heartbreak is a complicated psychological process that contributes to lethargy, insomnia, weakened immune system, and lack of focus. It is crucial to recognize that fixing a broken heart takes time and patience.
Boosting self-esteem and revivification are excellent hypnosis techniques that help when you want to get over someone.
Just remember to be patient and understanding with yourself and the process. Every individual is different, and each person grieves at their own pace.
