Your childhood is the most crucial part of your development. Everything you learn and experience plays a role in your identity and personality well into adulthood. You may have experienced trauma in your younger years that continue to follow you and haunt specific interactions and situations in your life, even twenty years later. Healing from childhood trauma is incredibly challenging, as it has established itself into a strong memory, encouraging your brain to replay the same anxiety and fear.
Cleaning yourself from negative energy and pursuing spiritual healing are great ways to overcome painful experiences. These are possible through hypnosis, which is an excellent tool for combatting anxieties that manifest themselves in your everyday life. Here’s what you need to know about healing from childhood trauma through hypnosis:
The Effectiveness of Hypnosis in Healing from Childhood Trauma
Although you’re a fully-formed adult by now, you still have an inner child that resides within you, carrying the hurt from your past. Your inner child is why your mind remembers and replays the traumatic experience repeatedly. As you weren’t able to process the traumatic event with the proper tools as a child, you brought it with you to adulthood, which has likely led to phobias, resentment, and relationship problems. It has also restricted how you live your life.
Fortunately, hypnosis can help you communicate with your inner child and heal them. Hypnotherapy helps you reposition your memories, allowing you to settle the trauma from your past. As you learn new and healthier approaches to processing these memories, the fear and anxieties eventually die off.
Facing Your Childhood Trauma
Childhood trauma is challenging to navigate, as you were too young to change or control the situation in which something or someone hurt you. Now that you’ve grown up and learned how to cope with troubling experiences, you can directly confront the trauma. You have also probably learned how to resolve emotional issues that result from trauma. With the help of professional support using hypnotherapy, you can learn to break free from your fears.
Hypnosis gives you a safe environment to heal and learn to resolve the conflict. With the guidance of a professional hypnotherapist, you discover how to approach your trauma from a different perspective. You can then process it healthily and productively. As a result, you remove the memory’s power of hurting you, allowing you to move on and live without the burden of the trauma on your shoulders.
Addressing the Effects of Trauma
Addressing your trauma is made even more useful with hypnotherapy as it attends to the root of the problem. Thanks to powerful hypnotic techniques like visualisation, exposure, and suggestions, you can reframe how your mind works to eliminate the fear and anxiety that you feel when reliving the memory.
Your limbic system, which is responsible for generating feelings of fear, is designed to respond to threats through a flight-or-fight system. Even when you’re in a safe space, trauma makes your mind feel like it’s continuing to happen, putting you in a perpetual state of anxiety. With hypnosis, you can reverse this damage to your limbic system. It restores the control you’ve always had over your memories and feelings, helping you relax.
Hypnotherapy for Childhood Trauma
Hypnotherapy can help you to release any symptoms of PTSD that you may still be experiencing from a traumatic event during your childhood. You may have experienced as children:
- sexual abuse
- emotional abuse
- traumas from bullying and other types of mental abuses
- reliving traumatic experiences from past events
- Physical abuse
- Feeling like the unwanted or forgotten child
- No memory of what happened in your past
- Symptoms of PTSD
Hypnosis Can Help You Release a Traumatic Event
If you’ve had a traumatic experience in the past, it can feel far too painful to deal with that event on your own. This is why it is important for you to work with a professional therapist who has years of experience in working with clients that have been through abuse and know not only the right tools to help to treat you and help you to improve your mental health and wellbeing.
Hypnosis Helps You to Access Forgotten Memories
Hypnosis is a particularly great therapy tool to help you uncover a hidden memory or past event. Sometimes when we go through abuse, our mind will try to protect us from it blocking access to the memory or memories. Clients can sometimes come to me because they feel like they have forgotten what their childhood was like. They believe that these memories are lost for good. Trying to remember these memories can cause a lot of stress on your mind and mental health as you are fighting your inner protection system. It can use avoidance as a way of stopping you from re-experiencing everything.
Hypnosis is a great therapy tool to access what you need from these memories in order to release the stress and symptoms that you have been experiencing. You don’t need to know everything that happened as part of the trauma release treatment.
Your Body Holds On To Past Pain and Trauma
Every unresolved trauma that you go through remains stored in your body until it is released. Your body tends to hold on to this in order to stop you from putting yourself into situations where you could be harmed in the future. This can then cause you to have symptoms such as PTSD, feeling lost, avoidance of certain places or types of people and other symptoms.
A big part of the hypnosis treatment is helping you to release these unresolved experiences where you have been abused. We don’t have to search very far to find the issue as your subconscious mind still knows how to find it. The symptoms that you feel are a big clue to where your body has stored those times that you have suffered in a physical, mental or emotional way.
Hypnosis and Healing Session Releases Stuck Feelings
Clients notice how much stress gets released from their body after a hypnosis treatment session, symptoms have significantly reduced or are gone, as well as a notable positive shift in their mental health and wellbeing. It can seem particularly hard to believe before going through a hypnosis and healing session, how much you will notice a change in your mental and physical health.
Clearing the negative energy from your life means taking a look at your own responses and determining which are a result of trauma. Painful experiences are always difficult to process, mostly when they aren’t done with the right support and guidance. Fortunately, hypnosis is an excellent way to begin your spiritual healing journey, helping you regain your confidence and removing your fears.
