Looking at Anxiety

Looking at anxiety can cause a lot of confusion for many people, as the way we are told it exists often isn’t true. Instead of telling you the same things that you’ve probably heard a million times before, I’m going to show you some concepts that have really helped my clients.

Once you understand anxiety this way, it will change the way that you look at anxiety forever.

What is Anxiety?

Anxiety is basically part of our natural protection mechanisms. When we are in a situation that presents us with a threat or a danger, our natural systems alert us to this so that we can take action (or not). We are supposed to feel anxiety in certain situations. It is a natural feeling that has helped us and our ancestors to stay alive.

The problems with anxiety happen when this natural protection system becomes over-sensitive or is being fired in situations where there isn’t really a threat or a danger. If you are in a safe place and nothing is threatening you or your safety then there is no logical reason for you to feel anxious. Your subconscious mind and body don’t do logic though. Only your conscious mind deals in logic and this can be where some of the issues start.

Mind's different ways of looking at anxiety
The conscious mind and the subconscious mind have different ways of looking at anxiety

A Conscious Way of Looking at Anxiety

When your conscious mind is looking at anxiety, it has to rationalise and make sense of it. It needs everything to be logical and ordered to understand. Whilst your conscious mind has the power to dive deep into complex understandings in order to find answers, it doesn’t understand how the body and subconscious mind are operating.

You have a feeling in your body (let’s call it anxiety) and your conscious mind wants to know why the feeling is there. It scans the environment looking for threats and dangers but can’t find any. It then gets frustrated and starts scanning backwards and forwards in time looking for what happened to you in the past.

“When did you last feel like this?”

Transderivational Searching

This process is known as….you guessed it…transderivational searching. Your mind scans back to times in the past that could be related to something you are dealing with in the present moment. It finds an event and gathers the information from that event. It then looks at the future potential outcomes related to where you are now and what could possibly happen in order to rationalise the feeling. It then starts to make stories (often with images) about how things could play out for you.

This then continues the initial feeling of anxiety you had and can also make it feel stronger than it initially was. A feeling on its own can’t last for very long. It needs the conscious mind to fuel it with stories in order to keep it going. Well done conscious mind. You’ve now taken a small feeling and turned that molehill into a giant mountain.

A Subconscious and Body Integrated Approach to Anxiety

The subconscious mind and your body are integrated as one. They both work together very well. While the conscious mind likes to pretend it is in charge of everything, it really isn’t. Everything starts in the subconscious and body then the conscious mind jumps in and creates thoughts to match what is already happening.

Your body and subconscious mind notice a feeling in the body and are more like…

“Oh there’s a feeling”

Now your subconscious can be much more abstract when it comes to reasoning and the storing of memories. It is much more based on feelings than logic. It will sometimes connect a bunch of memories together based on how you felt. Imagine a set of children’s blocks standing on top of one another. The bottom block is the first time your body held onto that feeling and each block up is each time it has held onto that feeling or a similar one that it has put in the same box as the initial one.

Your body will tend to store unresolved feelings

Why Does The Body Store Past Negative Feelings

Your body will store negative feelings when you have been through an experience and the issues weren’t resolved. Now, it isn’t always necessary for you to release every negative feeling as it happens. Sometimes you have to go away and think about it. Sometimes you need to learn something in order to release the feeling. Sometimes you need to be able to forgive or let go in order for the feeling to release. Sometimes it can be that your mind believes that the feeling is too much for you to handle so it locks it down in the body. Simply allowing the feeling to come up and experiencing it in its entirety can often be enough to release it.

What Are Negative Feelings?

The straightforward answer is that there are no such things as negative feelings. There are just feelings. Once you can grasp this concept, life will become so much easier for you. The negative feelings are often showing you what you need to work on and resolve from your past. If you are going through grief or loss then you need to feel that in its entirety. If you don’t then you’ll end up with a trapped emotion inside of you causing you issues.

People refer to negative feelings or emotions as the ones that they don’t want to feel.

  • Anger
  • Sadness
  • Hurt
  • Jealousy
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Shame
  • Guilt
  • Loss

There is nothing at all wrong with these emotions. In their proper place, they are there to guide us and help us to do what we need to do. They can lead us out of where we are and into where we need to be. When you can love depression as much as you do happiness and joy, life will open so many more doors for you.

where does anxiety come from
All “negative” or “bad” feelings are rooted in the past

How Our Present Anxiety is Rooted In The Past

So you have a feeling inside of you that your mind has labelled as anxiety. This feeling has a birthing point. A time when it was first experienced by you. The unresolved feeling always stays at the same age as when it was created. If you first experienced anxiety at 5, each time that you feel it in the future, you will go back to having the coping mechanisms of a 5-year-old in order to deal with the situation that you are currently in.

Imagine trying to deal with being anxious as a 5-year old. At that age, you have very limited skills and are in no way as skilled as you are now. Yet this is what happens to you every time that you experience anxiety.

Imagine for a moment that you have a brand new computer. When you get it out of the box and start it up everything works beautifully. You install some software onto it to perform certain tasks and these too work really well. Imagine how well that computer would run if you didn’t update the software on it for 5 years. Now imagine not updating it for 20 years, 30 years, 40 years even.

This is how your mind and body are running when it comes to those unresolved emotions. You are literally running without those out of date and buggy programs causing issues in your life. Some issues you will be aware of and some issues you won’t be. Isn’t it about time you gave yourself an upgrade? You’re worth that, right?

Looking at Anxiety Upgrades for Your Body and Mind

In order to receive these upgrades, we have to start looking at anxiety and where it comes from for you. We need to bring the adult self and help the child self to release the old feeling. Whatever it is that needs to be altered for you to release the old programs we will do. We look at what needs to be put into place for you to be able to change how you perceive that feeling in the future.

Remember, there is no such thing as a bad feeling and anxiety in its true form is there to keep us safe. We never look at getting rid of something that is there to keep us safe. We just learn how to use it correctly. Think dialling down that over-sensitive car alarm so that it can tell the difference between a bus going past and someone trying to break into your car.

Looking at Anxiety and How it Could Be Affecting Your Life

Here is a great video for you to watch about various scenarios of how anxiety could be affecting your life. It can really help you to have a different way of looking at anxiety.

Are You Ready to Receive Your Upgrades?

If you have had enough of your thoughts and feelings being in control of you and you are ready to take back control I’m here. We can work together to release the old buggy programs that have been causing you issues and bring in the new programs that can help you to feel much safer, more peaceful, grounded, centred and balanced than ever before.

Spiritual healing in Leeds Centre

People get traumatised for different reasons, and its effect comes in varying degrees. In the UK, trauma remains the most common cause of death for people under 40, which encouraged the government to invest in trauma centres since 2012. While these institutions did improve the statistics, there will always be people who are not comfortable declaring or talking about their conditions. As such, it is essential to provide other pathways to recovery.

Facing trauma is challenging in and of itself, let alone experiencing it on your own—which is why you will notice that trauma healing is a primary topic they commonly talk about at spiritual healing events.

Why People With Trauma Prefer Spiritual Healing

People who rely on spiritual healing do so for the following reasons: 

  • Provide Holistic Healing: Some people combine therapy with spiritual healing. They do so because spiritual healing makes them feel more wholly healed. 
  • Deeper Healing: Some people choose to engage in spiritual healing to deeply access their thoughts and feelings that they can no longer process in standard talk therapy.
  • Validation Needs: Some patients may feel invalidated by medical professionals and therapists. Therefore, they look for other ways to heal themselves.

Why Invalidation Happens in Modern Treatment

Often, invalidation happens not only in the field of modern science. Even family and friends refute or kid around the experience of the trauma victims. 

In some therapists’ eyes, spiritual healing or intuitive experiences are often seen as a disassociation process from what the patients should be facing. They see practices such as meditation, prayer, visualisation, and other forms of energy practices as a process of disassociating the self with the reality they should learn to face and forego. 

Many therapists object to specific spiritual themes that may lead to victim-blaming, such as things happening for a reason, that there is a lesson to be learned for every incident, and so on.

It could be true in some sense; however, invalidation occurs when people do not respect how others’ minds work. Everyone is different and if believing in these concepts makes them feel better about their situation, denying them of that right is truly invalidating. 

Spiritual healing can give you a deep sense of release from past wounds and traumas.

Spiritual Healing’s Role in Healing the Victims

Developing bodily awareness serves as the core of every spiritual healing for trauma survivors. Understanding how their body feels for any modality helps them get to know the gentlest way to transition out of their situation. 

For most people relying on spiritual healing, the process made them feel like they belong. It provides them with a healthy space where they can feel at ease and safe, which is difficult to achieve for every trauma victim. 

Conclusion

Trauma is not an easy topic to discuss. It can affect a victim entirely, including their spirituality, perspective, purpose, and significance. Once their spirituality is shaken or disrupted, one of the best methods to improve their condition is to help them patch the shattered pieces back through spiritual healing. While spiritual healing works differently from modern science or talk therapy, it still can bring positive effects to many victims.

Healing touch or therapeutic touch is a healing method based on ancient healing practices. This method utilises the hand and its capacity to bring energy and help a person relax, heal, and recover from pain faster. This method aims to promote healing by restoring harmony to a person’s overall wellbeing.  

If this is your first time hearing about energy healing, here are some of the common treatments you will encounter and what they are for:

1: Craniosacral Therapy 

This non-invasive treatment uses a therapist’s hands to provide relief from various pains, such as headaches, neck pains, and other side-effects of prior health treatments. In this method, gentle pressure is applied to your head, neck, and back to remove the “blockages” that hinder your body’s normal energy flow. As a result, the process enhances your body’s ability to heal itself. 

Craniosacral therapy can help keep people’s energy continuously moving around the body. It is a healing process that is often recommended for people who experience difficult pregnancies, disturbed sleep cycles, and mood disorders. It is also known to reduce symptoms of migraines, constipation, sinus infection, scoliosis, and more.  

After the therapy, expect to feel calmer and more in-tuned with yourself.

Healing Touch Therapy can be done sat in a chair without needing to remove any clothing.

2: Healing Touch

This energy therapy is based on the belief that every living thing on earth possesses energy. When a patient is not in their best condition, their energy is not flowing correctly.

In this healing method, the healing practitioner will ask you to lay on a massage table, or simply sit in a chair, for an energy assessment. Because your energy extends beyond your skin, the healing touch practitioner can feel and interact with it. 

From there, the practitioner will learn what to do to keep your energy levels balanced. They will begin to manipulate the flow of energy in your body using touch and hand movements. 

This healing technique is often used to complement other healing practices, such as medication, in-home care, and other therapies. The session can help calm and reduce a patient’s anxiety, stress, depression, or pain, thereby improving their quality of life and sense of wellbeing.

3: Magnetic Therapy

This healing therapy relies on magnets as tools to help treat conditions. This method is based on the belief that the body and earth have electromagnetic fields that need to be well-balanced for positive effects. When this balance is off, magnets that contain energy fields can help rebalance the field. During this rebalancing process, the organs and cells in the body are also healed. 

The therapy uses strong metal magnets placed on top of your body as you lay down on the massage bed for hours. The treatment duration depends on your body’s needs. This session is usually used to help treat health issues like injuries, depression, pain, joint problems, and migraines.

Conclusion

People use various energy healing techniques for different purposes, but most of them intend to become healthy in all aspects of their lives, including being at peace with themselves. Some health professionals believe that healing treatment can be a useful accompaniment to other health practices.

What is a Chakra?

As part of the energy-healing process, chakras pertain to the body’s centre. They run from your tailbone to the crown of your head, and in front of your spine. Though invisible to the naked eye, chakras make up a vital component of the body’s energy field.

As part of a spiritual healing method, the chakra aims to balance an individual’s physical and emotional well-being. When you encounter a traumatic experience, it can impact all seven chakras, which you’ll learn about below.

  1. Muladhara, the Root Chakra

The root chakra exists in the perineum—the tip of your tailbone. After a traumatic experience, your root chakra may undergo instability regarding grounding, primal energy, survival, safety, and security. When you address this part of the body, you encourage your will to survive.

  1. Svadhisthana, the Sacral Chakra

This chakra pertains to sexuality, relationships, pleasure, and creativity. It will sometimes overlap the root chakra at the womb or sacrum. Sexual abuse may shut this chakra down, leaving you to question the ability to desire another individual lovingly.

  1. Manipura, the Solar Plexus

This third chakra located near the stomach hones inner strength, vitality, self-control, and assertiveness. After a bout of trauma, you might find it challenging to establish boundaries. Healing the solar plexus restores control and power.

  1. Anahata, the Heart Chakra

Naturally, the heart chakra pertains to feelings of love, along with compassion, forgiveness, and self-esteem. If you have experienced a history of abuse, you might relate feelings of love with distress, shame, and pain.

Thus, healing Anahata allows individuals to establish a sense of love without pain and become open to trust and affection.

  1. Visuddha, the Throat Chakra

The throat chakra is home to expression, communication, and speech. Damage to Visuddha can leave individuals feeling strangled or suffocated, and incapable of saying.

Alternatively, a healthy throat chakra enables open honesty and promotes active listening.

  1. Ajna, the Third Eye Chakra

Located between the brows, Ajna associates with intuition, vision, insight, and psychic awareness (ESP). Traumatised individuals might only predict adverse outcomes and perceive every threat. Furthermore, they will question their intuition.

Exercise this chakra via healing therapy to correct and expand your field of vision, simultaneously eliminating emotional threats.

  1. Sahasrara, the Crown Chakra

This final chakra is located on the crown of your head and connects individuals with a higher consciousness or inspiration. Perhaps the most spiritual chakra among all seven, damage to Sahasrara may leave an individual feeling disconnected from reality and their spiritual selves. As such, getting better re-establishes a sense of connectedness and ability to cope.

Conclusion

Negative emotions are energy-draining, disrupting vibrational frequencies. By clearing these energies, you learn to come to terms with traumatic events, regardless of how long your unique process takes. Begin your spiritual healing journey with Paul Ramsden, a fully-qualified hypnotherapist with expertise in challenging anxiety and depression. Book a group or online one-on-one session an unburden yourself with a transformation energy healing session that will leave a profound effect on your spiritual self.

Metaphysics - Exploring the nature of the mind

The metaphysical is what lies beyond the tangible and pertains to emotions we feel profoundly but cannot measure. Mysterious and incalculable, the metaphysical can play a leading role in your journey towards healing. By embracing the truest parts of oneself, achieving the highest good is just within reach. If you’re considering hypnotherapy, there are more than a few ways you can immerse yourself in the metaphysical.

Beyond Deja Vu: Past Life Regression

deja vu

Suppose you’re visiting a place for the first time yet experience an acutely visceral response. Do you feel you may be struggling with something not rooted in this lifetime? Are you connecting with something or someone beyond this incarnation?

Through past life regression, you can come to terms with traumatic experiences and access memories hidden deep within the subconscious mind. Past life regression is hardly literal. Despite the insinuations, it aims to uncover intense, unexplainable connections and allows you to explore unresolved emotions that may cause emotional stress.

Spiritual Guidance: Kemetic Reiki

Most sacred sciences and medicine originated in Ancient Egypt, formerly known as Kemet. Energy healing through the use of crystals, sound therapy, and other elements have stood the test of time. Contemporarily, healing rites work to balance and align the mind, body and spirit.

Kemetic Reiki is useful in instances of lacking motivation, experiencing spiritual or mental blocks, or not feeling grounded.

Your Skype hypnotherapist will harness Sekhem, the universal life force, to harmonise your chakras and repair damage to the auric field.

Archetypal Therapeutic Imagery

The subconscious mind communicates visually. In their purest forms, archetypes are elemental and make up the building blocks of people. Unlocking transformational gateways to one’s highest purpose through imagery serve as facilitators to healing, insight, and release.

Saying Goodbye: Cord-Cutting

Cord cutting can be a very powerful way of letting go of past connections

The end of a relationship doesn’t mean it’s “over.” Sometimes, remnants of it will haunt you, causing you to enter a cycle of toxic and draining connections. If you’re seeking romantic love, you don’t want to carry baggage into your next relationship.

Energetic cord-cutting can help you reclaim power over past entanglements and stop recreating patterns that you’re hoping to break. The approach is loving and helps to restore vibrational autonomy.

Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT)

Tapping is a method of psychological acupressure. Accessing your natural energy meridian while keeping attention to a specific issue can relieve you of addictions, pain, trauma, and stress.

Despite its simplicity, emotional freedom techniques are empowering and impactful. You can craft a new mantra per session, focusing energy on the present moment.

Conclusion

Not every illness is physical, nor are they tangible. Anxiety can manifest in a dozen different ways and can be challenging to overcome. Through hypnotherapy and transformational energy healing, you access the body’s natural stress-relieving mechanisms in a safe and trusted space.

Paul Ramsden can help you to learn to become one with your subconscious mind and mitigate painful truths. Through Skypenosis, you can receive treatment from anywhere in the world.

Sexual Abuse & Hypnotherapy

Growing up while experiencing some form of abuse can result in short-term and long-term psychological effects for people. Worst-case scenarios involve sexual abuse perpetrated by a relative, a friend, a neighbour, or a stranger.

Unfortunately, people of all ages battle sexual abuse every day. Its short-term effects involve changes in behaviour, self-esteem, sleeping patterns, and overall performance at school or work. Meanwhile, long-term effects include mental health issues, psychological disorders, and unwanted behavioural outcomes.

It’s also possible for victims of sexual abuse to have a natural tendency of blaming themselves for what happened to them during their adolescence and adulthood. If you want to know more about hypnotherapy as a way to help people who have experienced sexual abuse, then keep reading below.

Effects of Sexual Abuse on Health

Effects of sexual abuse
Sexual abuse can leave you feeling like there is something missing inside of you. The right therapy can help you to become whole once again.

People who have suffered through sexual abuse have more chances of undergoing epileptic seizures due to the changes in the part of their brain that controls their emotions. The sensations that could potentially lead to attacks involve sadness, humiliation, anger, and other intense feelings that could result in an imbalance in the brain.

Abnormal behaviour of a sexual abuse survivor can also be linked to aggression and self-destruction. Their lingering trauma can involve hormonal changes connected to a fragile part of the brain! As a result, they experience depression and retention problems, and they cultivate fear and anger towards the abuser.

Triggers of Sexual Abuse

Consulting with a doctor may be necessary to help eliminate the damage brought by sexual abuse. While it can be helpful, it’s still possible for victims to become triggered at one or several points in their lives. Triggers can happen when they least expect it, resurfacing and giving the victim a hard time to recover all over again.

All forms of abuse can leave a lasting mark on the disturbed person and can change their behaviour severely, including their beliefs and way of thinking. Their emotional and mental health is affected even after they become mature enough to clearly understand what happened.

Damage of Sexual Abuse

Damage of sexual abuse
Sexual abuse can leave you feeling like you are damaged or broken. Trauma therapy can bring those pieces back together again.

Sexual abuse that occurs at a young age usually happens to boys and girls who are violated by unsuspected relatives or members of the family. Due to their lack of knowledge on sex, they don’t realise what happened to them until later on, when it hits them that their innocence was robbed early in their lives.

The damage that sexual abuse leaves on children can severely affect them, even more so once they gather the guts to tell their parents, but don’t receive the empathy they needed at the time. Therefore, it will result in more aggressive behaviour, possibly even leading to depression and severe emotional trauma.

Hypnotherapy for Sexual Abuse

For those who have lived through abuse, hypnotherapy can help the victims let go of the pain and trauma they’ve kept with themselves while growing up. Through therapy, survivors can be relieved from having to deal with the effects of abuse, allowing them to continue living their lives without the triggers to stop them.

A professional who can perform hypnotherapy can accommodate victims of sexual, physical, emotional, and psychological abuse and help them recover from other traumatic incidents during these times. Whether you had to live through it as a child or as an adult, you can still recover from it—just remember: it’s never too late to ask for help.

Conclusion

Hypnotherapy is a private method that requires professionals who are highly experienced to maintain your trust, especially when it comes to processing and recalling your past abuse. To help you let go of your bad experiences, it’s essential to rely on a hypnotherapist because they can guarantee you’re in a safe space to open up your bad memories and be properly guided on how to get rid of them.
