Emotional Freedom with Hypnotherapy Training: Open Your Heart and Transform Your Life

May 01, 2019 11:11AM ● By Matthew Brownstein, CCHt

Many of us struggle with our emotions and no one ever really taught us what to do with them. As children, we are told to suppress or deny our feelings. As adults, we might discover that this is very harmful and therefore we start acting out on our feelings so as not to hold them in. We then learn that this is also very destructive as now our disturbed emotional self begins to run our life. What, then, is the solution to clearing the blockages in the heart if we cannot suppress or act out on our feelings?
Learning to Truly Open Your Heart
In the model of hypnotherapy, we honor that we have a conscious and a subconscious mind. The subconscious mind is our emotional mind. The subconscious is also the seat of our memories and therefore we live with past events, limiting beliefs, painful emotions and all sorts of negative behaviors and psychosomatic illnesses arising out of what we hold buried deeply within our hearts. By suppressing our emotions, we close our subconscious minds and limit our potential. By acting out on these feelings, we merely let our “inner child” control our lives. Opening the heart and knowing what to do with what is in there is a first major step.
What do I do with my emotions once I decide to open to them? Moving towards true emotional freedom requires that we know what to do with our emotions. There are many techniques that exist and many ways of meditating that allow for the blockages of the heart to clear. This can be a painful time of personal and spiritual growth as we work through our issues, clean house and free ourselves from the past. During this time of intense growth, we can speed up the process tremendously with hypnotherapy as this modality allows us direct access to the subconscious mind, provides powerful techniques to resolve what we find there, and then empowers one to live without the constant struggle that comes from an emotionally disturbed heart. By learning hypnotherapy or even going through a hypnotherapy training, you get to begin this extremely important and powerful process of setting yourself (and others) free.
Why is hypnotherapy so effective in opening the heart? Hypnotherapy acts like a magnifying glass that puts direct attention on the subconscious emotional heart and simply works to open us to this part of ourselves while using powerful techniques that transform what we find. In a hypnotherapy session, the client is relaxed and more receptive to explore areas of their mind that they might not have otherwise done. Once the proper relationship is created with a well-trained hypnotherapist, then your personal growth work begins to skyrocket.
Becoming a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist with legitimate state-licensed diplomas is a powerful way to heal yourself and others, and to set yourself up for a profound journey into personal wholeness and well-being while possibly offering you a new career as well or an adjunct to an existing profession in the healing arts.
