Anxiety, while not pleasant, is an emotional state most people experience at some point in their lives.
Anxiety can be experienced as a generalized state of ongoing fear, worry and tension, or be triggered on occasion by your specific thoughts or images about activities that make you uncomfortable in some way. Anticipating giving a speech, performing on stage, getting married, or having surgery are some common examples. Often, people experience anxiety as the result of a traumatic experience in their lives. Someone who suffered a serious automobile accident while driving may feel anxiety whenever they take the wheel.
This hypnotic boost is intended for managing specific anxieties by using hypnosis to desensitize their negative emotional impact on you. Before listening to this boost, you should spend some time identifying your specific anxieties. To do this, think about times in your life when you felt anxious. Ask yourself what was going on at the time. What were you afraid of or worried about? Did something that was said or something you remembered immediately precede the feelings. What was it that made you uncomfortable and why? Or was it something you were planning to do? Why would that cause anxiety?
If you have more than one specific anxiety, jotting down a brief description of each while fully conscious may be helpful in keeping track of what you are working on over time. But it is best that you only address a single anxiety at a time. For example, don’t try to desensitize your fear of flying, your fear of getting married, and your fear of quitting smoking all in the same hypnotic session. Keep in mind that for each specific anxiety, it may take a few sessions, several, or even many, depending upon for how long and how deeply embedded in your mind that anxiety is before you are fully relieved.
The desensitizing technique includes a procedure for assessing how strong the anxiety is initially, and how much it diminishes after applying the desensitization. Based on these assessments, you can gauge your progress. If you get to a point where you are no longer making progress, it may mean that you are not prepared to go further at that time. Perhaps you can start work on another anxiety. Ask yourself if there is another related, and perhaps more fundamental anxiety that may need to be worked on, before more progress can be made with the first one. For example, your anxiety about retiring from work may have to do with your anxiety about your having inadequate finances.
