My first experience with Hypnosis…

Hi True Beauties!

Nearly a week ago, I had my first hypnosis session with Feel Good Hypnosis. It was one of the most bizarre yet most wonderful experiences I’ve ever had – and that’s the honest truth.

If you read my last blog, you will know that I was really scared of being hypnotised. After meeting with Turan in person and talking through those issues, he is someone who I know I could trust, therefore, I was willing to give it a go.

Yes, I will admit – even though I had talked this through with Turan and knew what to expect, I was still very nervous. BUT, I also knew that if this was really going to work for me, I would need to be open and want it to make a change in my life. So, I took a deep breath and tried to leave my mind as open as possible – and I am so happy I did.

The session was originally booked to stop me from grinding my teeth at night – something I have always done for as long as I can remember. A few days before the appointment, I plucked up the courage to ask Turan if we could also look at self-confidence and for fear of being in a crowd or having people judge me. I was really surprised when he suggested that, actually, the problem with teeth grinding could also be coming from these other issues. This is due to teeth grinding being a thought or feeling reflected in an action of my body – which TOTALLY made sense to me!

I was given the option to have the hypnosis done in my own home and I really think this helped me ease into hypnosis a lot easier as I was comfortable in the surroundings of my home – my safe place.

When it came to the session, I was surprised by how relaxed I felt. And when I say relaxed…I mean so relaxed to the point where, for the first time in my life, my mind wasn’t plagued with a long to-do list or things to remember. It was just me, sitting in my living room just  ‘being’ while Turan talked me through different memories which caused me to feel like grinding my teeth.

Three things happened which I did not expect – and were pretty cool!

  • 1) I was able to remember things I had long forgotten about. When I was asked to remember the first time I felt tension enough to grind my teeth… I remembered things from when I was five years old. I mean – memories from when I was 5 years old?! As clear as if it were yesterday?! How awesome is that?!
  • 2) I also got proof of how strong my unconscious mind is. While my mind was working through all these memories to make a positive change and to process the knowledge I now have – my hand was moving to show that this process was being completed – and I was not doing it on purpose! (Again, awesome!).
  • 3) I did not feel at any point I was out of control – not one bit. I was completely in control and only shared information I wanted to. I knew that if I wanted to come out of hypnosis at any time, all I had to do was open my eyes – a big relief for me as this was the biggest thing I had feared.

As this work was being completed, the visual representation of my fears and memories became a reality to me and I was able to rationalise these feelings and become at peace with it immediately. I could feel the tears welling up in my eyes as I went through memories and completed this process – tears of relief and happiness.

It was one of the very few times in my life I have felt so comfortable with just being me.  I suddenly felt like all those insecurities didn’t matter anymore and I can’t understand why I ever felt that way about myself. When I came out of the hypnosis, all I could think was: “is this what it feels like to not be so hard on yourself – because it feels amazing to me”.

And the issue of teeth grinding? Gone. I now feel the relief of not holding my jaw so tight during my sleep and can feel the physical relief of this. Who knew that hypnosis could be so effective for something like teeth grinding?! It just goes to show that we all have the wrong interpretation of hypnosis. And, in fact, it can help with those everyday things we just learn to live with. Well… we don’t have to live with it anymore! There is a solution out there that really works!

Turan also left me with my own little oasis in my head. One that I can revisit when I am stressed, when I have those moments of doubt and tension. He talked me through a visual representation of these feelings disappearing and my own little island where I am free to process this in a safe place.

He explained that if I focus on this for a few seconds, I can do this any time and it will work – and it really does! I have done it a few times throughout the week just to check and I am totally surprised every single time. It’s like meditation only better – it has real results immediately – and I could never thank Feel Good Hypnosis enough for this.

 THIS is what it feels like to have anxiety and tension rationalised. THIS is what it feels like to be truly comfortable in your own existence. THIS was achieved with the help of Feel Good Hypnosis.
