Managing emotions is one of the predilections of topics Hypnosis and Self-Hypnosis. Knowing how to manage emotions is an important skill in life, be it for our social, romantic or professional.
Knowing how to manage emotions is unfortunately not a skill taught in school although it has a direct impact on learning. How many children fail in school because they do not like their teacher or they think their teacher does not like? And how many have completely different results from the same material when changing teacher?
Our emotions give us information in a very particular way of what we are experiencing. They allow us to give meaning to our lives, to find what makes us happiest and guide us in this direction.
But when these emotions are too strong, too unpleasant or too intense, it can quickly become exhausting. Emotions affect our physiology, our hormones, our heartbeat, our breathing, etc … And if you do not know how to manage his emotions, the health impact can be negative.
Instead, manage emotions helps to be in better health and better enjoy life. Therefore how to manage emotions is a key competence of personal development.
Hypnosis and self-hypnosis to better manage emotions
Hypnosis and self-hypnosis help better manage emotions by acting on the mental images that are the source of these emotions. When growing up, we experience all sorts of emotions that are associated with triggers. This is how we can learn that this activity gives us positive emotions or such other activity provides us with negative emotions.
These emotions are starting physical sensations such as contraction or relaxation of the shoulders, the acceleration or slow heart rate and respiration, contraction or relaxation of stomach muscles, etc … One learns to recognize them in the naming and identifying the elements of our experience that triggered the emotion.
These elements are the perceptions by the senses from the outside world. One can associate a sound so loud and sudden fear, the image of an animal pleasure, odor disgust, etc … These reactions are instinctive and are often helpful.
But experience is accompanied by many perceptions, and it happens that the unconscious makes bad associations. It can have a bird associated with such extreme fear experience because there was a bird at this time. And although the presence of the bird did not detract from the experience, an association has been created between the bird and the physiological response of panic.
Thus, a phobia can be created.
Technical sub-modalities to manage emotions
By learning how to manage emotions through hypnosis and self-hypnosis, it is possible to change his reactions. One of these techniques uses the so-called sub-modalities.
Experience is recorded by our senses: sight, hearing, touch, smell, taste. This is called modalities. This is called the visual modality for the view, the auditory modality for the hearing and kinesthetic modality for touch, smell and taste.
Smell and taste are combined with the touch because they are finer perceptions that intervene least in our experience. Most often recognize a person or an object in the view by smell.
Each experiment is recorded in the memory with a combination of these modalities. A memory may be further characterized by a sound or an image, for example. Some people who have lived a car accident remember more of tire noise and shock to the body than what they saw at that time.
Each modalities, there are many sub-arrangements. An example picture may be in color or black and white, it can be three-dimensional or two-dimensional, it can be blurry or sharp, near or far, etc … A sound can be high or low, resonant or muted, its pace may change its tone also.
Learning to manage emotions is learning to modify these sub-modalities.
The reason why most people prefer to see a good movie at the cinema rather than on their mobile phone screen, it is because the image is larger and the sound is better, and therefore they go further into the film .
The image size is often an important submodality our experience. For most people, the picture is, the more experience is enhanced. To some extent, however, as if the image is so large we can not see it in full, it can lose its influence.
Teach his brain how to manage emotions
To manage emotions, we must teach the brain to record the experience in finding the most appropriate sub-modalities.
If you want to learn how to manage your anger, for example, you must teach your brain to change the way it encodes experiences related to anger.
Taking your memories of anger and modifying sub-modalities so as to feel less angry, you teach your brain to do the same the next time you’re in a similar situation.
A concrete example will surely help you better understand how to manage negative emotions.
A person often angry against his children because they let hang their business. In describing the sub-modalities of this experience, it is a film in 3 dimensions in which it is, with strong colors, or each misplaced object appears larger him. There are also strong voices.
By changing the submodalities of the memory under hypnosis, that person can get this image at size of a postcard pastel colors in which it is visible from afar, and turn it down to whisper.
Thus changing the image, that person experiences the calm in a situation that once angered him. By leading to this process several times, it may feel that calm the next time it will be in this situation and will be able to manage emotions.
You can have fun with the submodalities of your memories in the same way that you could have fun with a photo editing software or audio editing.
Have fun !
