Here’s How To Relax
(Exercising Your Mind) Stress, worry, and anxiety are very often big problems for a lot of people, including me.
But they are manageable problems because I have been working on the solutions for many years.
So much work has been put into it, that these things are not personal problems for me anymore; but they are still big problems for me, because they are problematic for my clients.
Are you one of these stressed out, worried, and anxious people?
Before any clients seek out help for relief, they usually know that they have a problem and can’t solve it.
So if they are stressed out, they realize there is a problem when they can not relax often enough, or at all.
The key is to use hypnosis to reprogram counter-intentions, or dominant thought into supportive intentions, so that instead of cancelling out the intention to relax, it strengthens it into active belief and behavior.
There are four stages to work through in HypnoAthletics that I have adopted, and adapted as a foundation for explaining the theory of how I have observed this process at work.
- UnConscious InCompetence
- Conscious InCompetence
- Conscious Competence
- Unconscious Competence
Let us just focus on relaxation as the remedy for use as an example.
A person in unconscious incompetence may be stressed, but they do not know the solution to this problem, and they also do not know that they don’t have the solution.
A person in conscious incompetence may be anxious, but they do know that they do not have the solution to this problem. This is the stage where they usually take the responsibility to get help from HypnoAthletics.
A person in conscious competence may be worried, and know the solutions to their problem, but may not be consistently applying the solution as a dominant thought. People seek help at this stage also.
A person in unconscious competence may be stressed sometimes but not often. They know the solutions and consistently apply them without always thinking about it because this is their default behavior.
The hypnosis program that I have created, and use, helps a stressed-out person to move from the stages of incompetence into the stages of competence.
And incompetence simply means that a person is doing things that keep them worried, anxious, and stressed; when they have a desire to be calm and relaxed instead.
While competence means that a person is doing the things that are needed to be calm and relaxed when they want to.
Unconscious means their behaviors are on auto-pilot, which is also called by default.
Conscious means that they have to put a little more effort into thinking about their behaviors.
A person in unconscious incompetence is behaving in ways that are keeping them stressed by default, because this is part of their subconscious, and unconscious programming.
A person in conscious incompetence is behaving in stressful ways but do not know what else to do.
A person in conscious competence is behaving in relaxing ways because they are mindfully applying the behaviors that help them remain more calm.
A person in unconscious competence is behaving in more calm and relaxed ways by default, because this is part of their subconscious, and unconscious programming.
Subconscious and unconscious programming are the result of dominant thought.
Dominant Thought is the result of repetition of ideas over the long-term which is a form of self-hypnosis.
Dominant Thought can also be more quickly, and efficiently created through another form of hypnosis, called clinical hypnosis, that is performed for clinical or therapeutic reasons.
And very much how two different people will respond differently to an exercise program, a very similar response has been experienced in practice, and is expected from different clients.
One person may be ready to run 3-miles after only one week of training, while another person will be able to run 3-miles after 3-months of training.
In the same way, one person may use only 3-sessions to move from incompetence into competence, while another person may require 300-sessions to get to where they want to be.
Getting to the stage of dominant thought is different for everybody.
My experience has always been on the lower number of sessions to experience results, but there is a first time for everything, and I welcome all challenges.
A few tips for relaxation
- Get plenty of rest; including sleep, naps, and meditation.
- Practice slow, deep-breathing exercises as often as you do remember to.
- Gently stretch different muscles in your body, including the small ones in your hands.
- Reduce drinking and eating off caffeine and sugar.
- Mentally return yourself to any times in your life when you felt naturally calm and relaxed.
- Learn self-hypnosis, and / or get help from a Master-Hypnotist.
