My niece is on Facebook. So am I. I noticed her post today: “I am so sick and tired of being sick and tired.” I gave my Auntie Hypnotist unsolicited advice. STOP IT! Stop telling yourself TO be sick. And that’s exactly what she is doing. I told her: “Hypno Hint: stop telling yourself that you’re sick and tired. Your brain hears you focusing on that (sick and tired) and says, “OK, I can do that!” It thinks that’s what you want, and your unconscious mind is VERY accommodating. How would you rather feel? Healthy? Energetic? Focus on that.”
It’s called “organ language.” When you give your body instructions as to how to feel, your unconscious mind is listening attentively. And does what you suggest. Creates what you want. Or, what it thinks you want. Your unconscious mind is super literal. What you focus on expands, or, expressed differently, you get what you think about.
“That makes me sick!” You’re focusing on sick. You’re telling yourself to get sick. Direct language: “make me sick.” Don’t do that!! “He gives me a pain in the neck, he’s a pain in the behind.” You are telling yourself to have pain. Don’t do that!! “She makes me so mad I can’t see straight.” You’re telling yourself to have vision problems. “He makes my blood boil.” You’re asking for high blood pressure. Your mind/body can do that. And will! When you focus on illness “I’m sick and tired” your mind/body says, well, OK, if that’s what you want…I’ll get it for you! Apparently, my niece is a very persuasive hypnotist inside herself. It’s just time to change the hypnotic suggestion.
Hypno tip of the day: Focus on the flip side of illness and physical distress in your language to self. My first hypnosis teacher joked about upsetting situations: “Well, that just UPS my metabolism.” Could be useful! 🙂 What do you want? Focus on healthy. DO NOT tell yourself “it’s cold and flu season.” That’s a suggestion to get ill. “It’s healthy time! I feel so good. I always stay healthy. That’s right!” Listen to yourself and notice if/when you give yourself negative suggestions of pain and discomfort and illness which instructs your body to focus on and manifest more of that. And then stop it, and think of what you’d rather feel. Something good, I mean!
It couldn’t hurt. Just do it!
