Hypnosis and Stuttering

Do you have trouble with speech fluency? Have you found yourself repeating sounds, syllables, or words while trying to string together a verbal sentence? Stuttering, also known as stammering or childhood-onset fluency disorder, is a speech disorder that causes frequent disruptions in one’s fluency and speech. Individuals who stutter know what to say but have trouble communicating it. Some may repeat or prolong a word or frequently pause in their speech. While many may outgrow developmental stuttering, others may experience constant stuttering well into adulthood. In this month’s blog, we will discuss the symptoms and causes of stuttering and how hypnosis can be beneficial in treating it.

Symptoms of Stuttering

As mentioned above, symptoms of stuttering include difficulty with starting a word or sentence with frequent interruptions caused by repetition and pauses. Stuttering may also include physical tics such as rapid eye blinks, facial tics, head jerks, and fist clenching. Feelings of excitement, stress, pressure, tiredness, and so on can also worsen it.

Individuals who stutter may also find speaking in social settings or in front of large groups very difficult. However, it is known that some are able to speak perfectly when talking to themselves or while singing.

Causes of Stuttering

Stuttering can be caused by various factors. Development stuttering is very common in children as they learn how to develop their speech and language. Generally, this is outgrown and is resolved as they grow older. However, if stuttering continues on into adulthood, it may be due to a psychological issue. This can be caused by many things but it can also be a result of being bullied, abused, or ignored during childhood.

Genetic factors can also lead to stuttering. Families with a history of stuttering have shown that their children are more likely to also develop speech fluency problems, although the severity of it will vary. While researchers have been unable to pinpoint an exact gene, stuttering can be inherited from genetic abnormalities.

In more rare cases, stuttering is caused by a neurological issue such as brain damage from an accident or a serious fall. This is known as acquired stuttering.

How Hypnosis Can Help

If you are struggling with stuttering, especially if it’s due to psychological factors or trauma, hypnosis can be a very beneficial tool in learning how to cope with it and even eliminate it all together. Hypnosis works with your subconscious mind and addresses the root of the cause. It can ease stress and fears while helping you build your confidence.

There are various techniques when it comes to easing the symptoms of stuttering. For example, a hypnotist may use the regression method where the client is taken back to their childhood in order to identify the root of the problem. This may be a time in their life where they were bullied or ignored and had trouble finding their own voice, thus resulting in stuttering. A hypnotist can then help change the client’s beliefs about the situation and desensitize their reaction to the childhood memory. Of course, everyone is unique and has their own particular experiences and causes. It’s always best to personally consult with a certified hypnotist and find the best approach in improving your speech fluency.

How to Break a Bad Habit

A habit is defined as a tendency that is hard to quit. Common bad habits that many struggle to quit include overeating, smoking, nail biting, bed-wetting, stuttering, and more. Bad habits are oftentimes so hard to break because they are more controlled by the subconscious mind than by the conscious mind. So in order to best tackle and overcome bad habits like these, we must first revolutionize how our subconscious mind works. Below, we discuss several tried and true methods that may be able to help you finally break a stubborn bad habit for good.

Set Attainable Goals

It’s okay to start off slowly. In fact, it is actually encouraged when setting goals with habit breaking. Making unrealistic goals for yourself will increase your chances of self compromising your momentum and confidence along the way. Recognize that breaking a bad habit is a journey and that there will be highs and lows throughout. In the long run, setting incremental goals is a very effective way to help keep you on track with your goal to quit.

Treat Yourself

There are countless ways you can treat yourself that will ultimately support your goal of breaking a bad habit. Rewarding yourself to a full night’s sleep, a healthy meal, or a walk out in nature will promote continued overall wellness and a desire for a healthier life.

Another option is to quite literally reward yourself with something you really desire. It could be a trip, a manicure, a new outfit, or anything that will truly keep you motivated to reach your goal time and time again.

Recognize Triggers and Cues

More often than not, one can find patterns with their habitual behaviors, such as triggers. Cues and triggers can be anything from feeling lonely and anxious to hanging around certain people or places. While these often vary from person to person, steering clear of triggers is a great tool for anyone wanting to seriously break a bad habit.

Hypnosis

Hypnosis is a lasting and effective method for breaking bad habits because it targets issues at their source by eliminating the desire to perform the habit in the first place. Many habits are associated with strong emotions and feelings of happiness or sadness that need to be addressed from within in order to be overcome. Instead of giving up something that a person enjoys, the goal is to be free of the unwanted habit and live a happier life.

Final Thoughts

At the Mind Enhancement Center, we firmly believe that old habits don’t have to die hard and when you do change your habits – you change your life. Visit our website to learn more about our services or contact our team today directly at (817) 589-7407.

How Hypnosis Can Help With Weight Control

When people think about weight control, they think about seeking the advice of doctors, nutritionists, and personal trainers. However, did you know that hypnotists can also help with controlling weight gain? In this month’s blog, we will discuss how hypnosis can actually help with weight control and ultimately lead to a healthier lifestyle.

Reasons Behind Weight Gain

There are many variables behind weight gain but a common reason is due to overeating. When a person overeats, it may be because they feel like its fulfilling a necessary need whether it be for entertainment, boredom, or to reward themselves. For example, after committing to a strict diet plan or workout schedule and ultimately losing their desired weight, an individual may feel the need to reward them self by eating unhealthy foods. In most cases, people accidentally eat too excessively after forbidding themselves from fattening foods, which results in gaining back all of their weight and more. Others may overeat because they see food as a comfort and a source of relief from a past trauma. Whatever the reason may be, the most common offender is a person’s mindset and how they perceive food.

Using Hypnosis

Now how does hypnosis come into play? Hypnosis can help change a person’s attitude and perception of their relationship with food. The ultimate goal is to positively influence the client’s mind and have them feel that smaller portions are adequate and will satisfy their appetite. In other words, people don’t have to give up their favorite foods and turn to a strict diet, and instead they can still enjoy the same things but in smaller quantities.

Overall, hypnosis is all about changing one’s habits for the better. It addresses the subconscious and the root of what makes you tick. If you have problems sticking to a healthy diet or have trouble with portion control, hypnosis may be a viable option for you.

Additional Tips to Integrate Into Your Life:

Other than hypnosis, it doesn’t hurt to integrate more healthy routines into your life. Here are a few to help with weight loss:

  • Keep a food diary or tracker and identify if you’re eating because you’re hungry or out of boredom.
  • Incorporate more fruits and vegetables into your meals.
  • Remember to drink plenty of water daily.
  • Make a habit of taking walks or jogs throughout the week to keep your body moving.
  • Try not to skip meals because this can slow down your metabolism and make it harder to lose weight.

Conclusion

Quickly Releasing Negativity

Everything in the universe starts with a beginning, like a seed birthing a tree. Your thoughts also can birth lousy behavior or habits. Using your mind’s eye, you can discern what deep thoughts are hurting you or helping you. Just like a tree, you can identify what part of the tree is dying and growing.  Positive and negatives thoughts can bring different emotions. When you linger on negative thoughts, it becomes easier to have a negative mindset, and positive thoughts work similarly. 

As you walk on your path, you can easily walk to your destination. But when you depart from the original path, it becomes harder to walk due to external obstacles. The same approach can come from our thinking. Our thoughts become more repetitive the more we act upon them.

Hypnosis can help you change this automatic pattern by activating those responses.  You can be in a safe, comfortable environment such as our office and receive new positive thoughts thru the power of suggestion. Hypnosis is effective because when you are deeply relaxed or in a ‘trance-like state, you are more susceptible to suggestion, and therefore more likely to adopt a new habit, the ‘learned’ response.

Conclusion

It is not easy at first to start walking on the right path. But, over time, it will become easier. It essential to set goals for personal development and get the critical elements to have positive progress. Allow your call to the Mind Enhancement Center to be your first smart goal.

The Five Stages of Grief

“Grief is like the ocean; it comes on waves ebbing and flowing. Sometimes the water is calm, and sometimes it is overwhelming. All we can do is learn to swim.” – Vicki Harrison

The emotions we feel from losing a loved one can be overwhelming. As we try to process this loss, grief begins to set in. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, a renowned psychiatrist, established the theory that grief occurs in five distinct stages: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. Of course, all of us grieve differently, but at some point, we will come to experience one or more of these stages. Continue reading to learn more about the five stages of grief.

Denial

The first stage in the theory is denial. It is used to minimize the pain of loss. As we are trying to comprehend a reality without our loved one, we need to survive this intense emotional pain. Denial slows the process down so we can adjust to a new reality. It’s a time where we may reflect on experiences with this person and wonder how to move on without them.

Anger

After losing a person we love, we can experience anger. Extreme emotions, such as anger, is something that happens when we are uncomfortable. So when we express anger, we may be left feeling isolated in our experiences. Because it’s such a strong emotional release, it can push others away or let us be perceived as unapproachable.

Bargaining

Desperation sets in as we begin to bargain with ourselves. We start to consider ways to avoid the pain. We may find ourselves making requests to a higher power. There also are moments where we may feel completely helpless because the situation is out of our control. We are trying to get back control, even though the pain is inevitable.

Depression

As we come to terms with the loss, we are now faced with reality. We can begin to grieve, but feel a deep sadness that wasn’t there before. During this time, we may retreat inward and become less sociable. This sadness can slowly turn into depression, which has multiple signs. From loss of appetite to feelings of hopelessness, depression comes in many forms.

Acceptance

As we reach a place of acceptance, we can begin to move forward. We may still feel the pain of loss, but we can begin to heal and reconnect with others for support. We can start to feel more hopeful again.

Conclusion

If you feel overwhelmed by sadness or grief in your life, contact our experienced hypnosis and EFT specialists at the Mind Enhancement Center. We offer grief management so you can regain control in your daily life and routine. Please give us a call at (817)-589-7407 today!

Improve Study Habits and Memory for Distance Learning

Given the current pandemic situation, there are more students using online learning for education. It is a method where students and teachers are meeting online for classes and learning at home instead of sitting in a classroom setting. As these students are transitioning to e-learning, they may find themselves struggling to focus on tasks and remembering due dates. Follow along in our blog as we discuss how to improve study habits and memory for distance learning.

Studying at Home

Physical location plays a major role when it comes to studying. If there are distractions at home, such as a T.V., pets, or even a phone, then the ability to concentrate on homework or study for a test becomes harder to do. Concentration is essential and the learner should leave designated area when concentration becomes difficult. Getting up for rest breaks and stretches are beneficial after a long class session. In addition, blocking out distractions with visualization can help too.

Memory Development

While a quiet, designated area is necessary for learning, so is memory development. Students learning at home may become frustrated with memorizing subject matter. They may also be dealing with thoughts of fear, such as failing a test. Through the power of hypnosis, students can learn to set personal goals and create motivation for themselves. They will also learn ways to relax at will, which can lead to improving self-confidence and awareness of control.

Conclusion

3 Ways to Refresh Your Mindset for Spring

While freshening up your room for spring, you may be thinking about cleaning out the closet or dusting the windows. But what about getting rid of your old routines and bad habits? Spring is a wonderful opportunity to establish some much needed change in your lifestyle. This could be anything from making quiet time for yourself or perhaps finding motivation in your personal or work life. Hypnosis is also a great way to jump-start your lifestyle and refresh! If you’re ready to make positive adjustments to your mindset, then continue reading!

1. Dedicate Time for Yourself

Being a busy bee isn’t a bad thing, but sometimes it’s necessary to sit back and give yourself some “me” time. Too often, parents, students, and other working individuals are consumed with projects and social demands of everyday life. So if an opportunity arises to smell the flowers, do it. By this, we mean taking time out of your day to disconnect from social media, texts, calls, etc. Do something for yourself, like taking a walk in your neighborhood or along the beach or listening to calm music in a quiet corner. You may find yourself motivated and inspired to try new things. 

2. Journal Your Thoughts

There are phases of life where you may feel overwhelmed or unmotivated. To get your life back on track for the spring season, try writing down your thoughts in a journal. Take a deep breath and relax, while focusing on the progress you’ve made and what you’re grateful for. Keeping a positive mindset can allow you to gain a new perspective and redefine your self-worth. Other actions you can take is listening to a podcast, reading a book, or immersing yourself in nature. 

3. Self-Care

The mind and the body are connected, so if your body is out of balance, your mind can be affected too. It’s important to focus on aspects of your life that could be improved, such as asking questions like: am I getting enough exercise? Do I need to change my eating habits? By making small adjustments to your daily routine, you can start to see positive changes. Some examples of self-care can be anything from doing yoga, going to the gym, trying healthy recipes, or simply running a hot bath with your favorite candles.
