Control Motion Sickness With Hypnosis. Who hasn't felt those
waves of queasiness and nausea when faced with a change in
equilibrium? The fast roller coaster, the turbulent plane ride,
boat trip or long car ride.
Many people suffer from motion sickness. Motion sickness is
actually caused by mixed signals between the eyes and the
balance signal known as the inner ear. An example is when you
experience seasickness; you are being tossed about on rough
Your inner ear tells you that you are in motion, but your
eyes see your cabin walls that are still. The information is
conflicting and the result is nausea. There are a few things
that can be done to minimize your discomfort like trying to
minimize the changes in speed, or direction.
You can try lying down, not turning your head or closing
your eyes. Some people sear that focusing on objects ahead of
you can help you to feel less carsicknesses. There are also
wristbands that apply pressure to the wrist so they hit at the
acupuncture point on the arm. Two bands must be worn; one on
each wrist in the correct position to cover the acupuncture
points and is effective.
Other people swear by medications like Dimenhydrinate.

Hypnosis And Meditation
Thinking versus not thinking
But there is a major reversal when it comes to thinking in relation to meditation and hypnosis. With hypnosis you strive to still think unlike meditation where you try to clear the mind and not think.
A great beginning point
For this reason hypnosis is a great precursor to meditation. Why? Because as one enters hypnosis and reaches the subconscious mind old programmed thought patterns can be released thus freeing up and clearing the mind for a deep a quiet level or state of meditation.
Imagine yourself on your trip and being happy, nausea free and
really enjoying yourself. The most important aspect of mind
control is relaxation and being able to recall your imagery in
any circumstances. A simple hypnosis technique that anyone of
any age can do is called: Transform technique. You imagine the
symptoms that are causing discomfort.
You then imagine a shape that you want to transform it to.
Add to the shape in your mind a color, and texture. Then
imagine what size it would be. Start to change or transform
this shape into any color or shape that you wish it to
take. Then watch as your object slowly drifts up into the
sky over the local hang out. Keep it in sight if you wish,
or retrieve it to touch and examine again.
Dieting doesn't work, but hypnosis in
combination with other behavioral changes
brought on with visualizations, NLP or
other cognitive therapies can give you up

absolutely nothing for you if you don't use
it to help you cope with the changes you
have to make in your eating and exercise

short term way to "just lose a few pounds"
you will simply end up going back to your
old habits when you have reached your
Part of self-hypnosis is to claim whatever part of the
experience you can and mark it as your own; the rocking of
the boat for example. You want to claim that rocking
motion. Try to imagine that it is a rhythm instrument and
you are making an orchestra. You beat upon the rhythm
instrument to the tune of the motion.
Call upon your image any time you need to ease motion
sickness. As you control the rhythm motion you claim your
part of the motion sickness.
