Change What You Think And
Change What You Think And Change Yourself. Think In ancient
times, it was believed that the mind and the body are all one
system instead of a bunch of parts.
Recently, Western medicine has rediscovered this theory and
started exploring it, and some of the complementary modalities
are being used. For example, hypnosis, acupuncture, and reiki
are becoming more popular in the United States.
To discuss all the ways that your mind and body work
together would fill a book, so here are some ways your mind and
body connection can affect your well being. Everything that we
experience gets stored in some form of memory.
We remember the significant moments with a meaning or belief
attached to them, and these beliefs produce emotions and
behaviors that eventually lead to habitual behavior.
This is the most obvious way that the mind affects the body.
Positive beliefs create positive actions, and negative beliefs
create negative ones. How we talk to ourselves and others has a
strong impact on our thoughts, behavior, and health.
Phrases like pain in the neck or he makes me sick become
real physical symptoms the more often they are repeated.
Changing the way you talk can cause you to feel different.
Keeping a positive tone on both your mental and verbal
dialogues can actually cause you to feel better.
Everything you say, see, or hear affects your mind. Keep in
mind what you listen to and what you watch throughout the day,
and see if it inspires or depresses you. Skip the bad news for
a few days and see how you feel.

Hypnosis is no longer considered just a form of entertainment

As published in the Western Medical Journal in October 2001, there is medical evidence that hypnosis can help with anxiety, insomnia, phobias and obesity. Not the absence of evidence that it can help cure smoking. The stop smoking programs help by working on the stress triggers and the eating triggers so can still be effective.
We get more of what we focus on. If you focus on things that
make you angry, sad, or fearful, you will continue to feel
these things. This can eventually lead to disease or physical
health problems. It is a case of you are what you believe focus

The fight or flight syndrome can be activated any time we
are in situations of stress which for some of us is every
Too much of the hormones produced in this state can lead to
depression, obesity, and brain atrophy, and can greatly
decrease your life expectancy. The autonomic nervous system
works without you being conscious of it, controlling all of
your bodily function.
The sympathetic branch of this handles the fight of flight
response, and decreases the activity of the immune,
reproductive, and digestive systems.
Thinking, versus not
But there is a major reversal when it
comes to thinking in relation to Meditation
With Hypnosis you strive to still think
unlike Meditation where you try to clear
the mind and not think.
The parasympathetic branch is the opposite, and handles the
relaxation response and increases the activity of immune,
reproductive, and digestive systems. Hypnosis can help
focus your attention, relax you, and increase
responsiveness. In doing so, you can create a more positive
and healthy mindset.
When your mind is healthy, your body will follow and as you
learn to think, speak, and act more positively and with
more relaxation, the better you will start to feel.
