Notes of Growth by a client
For the past 10 years I have been suffering with debilitating anxiety. I was at the point where I would wake up and ask myself “Where is the joy?” I work from home and stayed home all the time- alone. I did not feel like I had any friends. My father, my husband and my kids all saw it. I hadn’t shared it with anyone except those in my inner circle. I tried to put on a happy face and act like I could manage. For anyone who knew me in my 20’s and 30’s, it would come as a surprise. I was always a strong person who successfully managed my life and all its curve balls.
I knew I needed help. The anxiety was a weight that I could not break through. I could not fly without crying the entire trip (and I had to fly for my job). I didn’t feel liked by anyone. I refused to seek any medical or dental care, even with an infected tooth. I was afraid of the pain I could be subjecting myself to. I stopped hosting any gatherings in our home. I didn’t want to leave the house or go anywhere. What was the point?
A close family friend referred me to Deb England at the Wholeness Healing Center. After my initial meeting and diagnosis with Deb, she felt I would be a good candidate for Heart Centered Hypnotherapy. I was enthusiastic to try and we scheduled a relaxation hypnosis for my second session. The day arrived. I was comfortable and relaxed. Deb addressed the areas of my life that needed the deepest healing. Like a recipe, she added the components such as energy, sleep, and empowerment. I just had to relax and listen. It lasted 18 minutes but seemed like only five. I left feeling a little bit tired and wondered how in the world this was going to work.
I’m here to tell you that it did work and it continues to work. I am amazed at the changes I have experienced in the last few weeks. The anxiety is not gone but it is no longer an issue. Empowerment is on top of anxiety and I can manage my life. I had dental surgery- that I had put off for a long time. I hosted 40 in my home for Thanksgiving and I enjoyed the day- no anxiety. I feel that I have more clarity in my life. My marriage has improved and the relationship with my kids has improved. My dad and my husband both mentioned how noticeable the change is- and that it is good to have the “old me” back.
Many people equate hypnosis to something that is not of God or of the church. I think this line of thought is due to lack of knowledge. Because this is not the case at all. Once you understand the process, you will see that it only serves to enhance. My relationship with God has become stronger. I feel that the connection I have with God is deeper and my prayer time is more meaningful. My faith is renewed.
If you struggle with anxiety, please know that there is hope with Heart Centered Hypnotherapy. I would strongly recommend that you meet with a therapist licensed in this practice to be evaluated as a candidate. It has truly given me the ability to have clarity in situations that were previously difficult for me to handle. It has given me energy and helped me feel more positive and grateful. I can manage anxiety and it no longer controls me. Heart Centered Hypnotherapy does work. It has changed my life for the better.Tags: anxiety and hypnosis, hypnotherapyy
