Nowadays, more and more people are finding themselves stressed out and
questioning the purpose to life. In our modern fast paced world it is
too easy to lose sight of our personal priorities. For young couples homes
are so damn expensive you can’t get a foothold in the market. If
you succeed, then mortgage repayments are crippling and taxes ever increasing.
It is breathing ground for fears to manifest - what if I lose my job or
get sick? Modern medical, scientific and technology advances are only
fruitful if you have the resources to enjoy their spoils. Similarly, traffic
congestion means long delays getting to and from work. You are probably
not surprised to learn that several million commuters to New York City
spend more than three hours a day in transit. Litter wonder that stress
is escalating. Add to this the great advances of the past decades, which
pepper us with information and consumables. I speak of previously abstract
ailments, of costly preventative scans, of hair-regeneration products,
mobile phones, playstations and revelations and acts of aggression that
draw into question our religious beliefs.
Even children come under tremendous pressure. The school curriculum appears
vast. My eleven year old, nephew cannot lift the sum total of his schoolbooks.
He must carry only those that he needs each day. Couple this with the
violence of video games and television, schoolyard bullying, early sexual
awakening and the absence of simplistic games, which encouraged friendly
interaction between children. It is all too easy to see how stress and
disruptive practices can manifest at an early age.
The major trouble with stress is that it feeds our emotional reservoir
and can mimic virtually any physical or mental symptoms. Phantom illnesses,
headaches, tinnitus, rashes swollen joints, migraines, blood pressure,
asthma and especially lower back pain. Even more problematic, left untreated
stress can advance to depression. Unfortunately, when you commence down
this path it is often very hard to discharge this negativity and recover
on your own. This is because it is like challenging your own intellect.
Ultimately, you require a person or event to act as your buffer zone and
disposal basket so you may move forward again. This is a role that your
companion or family members may not be able to fulfill. They are also
suffering from their own stress, of which your interaction is probably
a component. The Clinical Hypnotherapist is a trained medium for the discharge
of stress and realignment of positive focus. In my clinic I frequent discover
that stress and repressed memories are the culprit for mimicking many
physical illness, which have not responded to normal medical therapies
and medicines. My experience to date clearly guides me to the conclusion
that "equilibrium of mind" is a potent force that should never
be taken for granted. However, for personal safety with respect to any
physical complaint, I strongly advocate that a medical physician is visited
before a Clinical Hypnotherapist.
