Mind over Menopause
It's never been easier to use your mind to help your menopause
See you in the bliss field
There are many ways in which we can help ourselves and I think I have something pretty innovative that you're gonna love.
Any good doctor will tell you that the next best thing to replacing your hormones is to SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCE YOUR STRESS.
Because the more stress we have in our body the less we prioritise those all important sex hormones (which give us our VA VA VOOM). Basically stress robs us of our youth, our health and vitality.
Interested to know how I can help? I'm gonna tell you in a bit, but I'd love to know if I'm on the right lines here.
- Maybe you're the kind of person who is intreguied by the mind/body connection and wants to learn more?
- Maybe you can't/don't want to take HRT and you're looking for other ways to help your meno symptoms?
- Maybe you're on HRT but you recognise that it's only half the story to your wellbeing?
Whatever your situation...
Ok so down to the nitty gritty..
How does hypnosis work?
Your mind believes whatever you tell it.
Truthfully your mind doesn't know the difference between what is real and what is imagined. We are imagining stuff all day long and many of us are using our imagination in the wrong way. It's called worrying. How many times have you been thinking about something scary or envisioning worse case scenario and your heart starts accelerating? You're not IN the scenario but your body thought that you were because of what you told it with your mind. And then your body dispensed the perfect cocktail of chemicals as though you were in that situation in real life. During these powerful hypnosis recordings you get to tell your mind that you're cooling down, that you can open to more pleasure and that you can have more mental clarity. Most people refuse to believe it's THAT simple. But it is. Especially when you practice it on the daily.
Your mind communicates to your body via words and pictures.
Words are like magic, that's why they call it spelling. Words and pictures are the coding that your mind uses to send through your body. Your body understands these words and pictures and translates them into feelings. For example, if you picture cute kittens or cute babies you will get a nice dose of oxytocin delivered into to your blood stream which makes you feel bonded and yummy (presuming you like kittens & babies). Equally if you say things like "I can't cope with these flushes" or "I can't stand my partner anymore" or "I can't remember anything anymore" your mind will start to tell it to you back. Then in response to that 'code' your body will produce the chemicals to make you feel a certain way which match those thoughts. During hypnosis we use powerful language and powerful imagery to create new thoughts and feelings that produce the nice hormones rather than the horrid ones.
Your mind learns through repetition
When you were a teenager how did you manage to learn all the lyrics to Ice Ice Baby by Vanilla Ice huh? Did you study the lyrics? Of course not! You didn't have time for that. It's more likely that you had the song on repeat and let it sink in over time, annoying your parents at every opportunity. You just played it so much that your mind started to recognise the patterns of the words, melodies and rhythms. Well that's how these hypnosis recordings work. You play them every day for 30 days and before you know it you'll be saying them in your sleep, literally. Over time, that coding (and the meaning attached to the coding) gets embedded and tells you and your body what to do.
Your body heals itself naturally during Theta states
When you create 20 minutes in your day to listen to a hypnosis recordings you allow your brain waves to slow down to theta speed. Theta is a state that is between awake and sleep and the cool thing about it is, when you're in it, you don't realise you're in it. I call it 'the gap' or 'the bliss point.' Most people tell me "I fell asleep during the recording, does that matter?" and the truth is, they didn't actually fall asleep they went into theta. How do I know that?? Because they woke up at the end. If you were actually asleep, you wouldn't wake up. Truthfully scientists still don't know much about theta but the sages of yesteryear did. They might have called it 'transcendence.' Whatever the label you give it, when you drop into theta something magical happens in the body. Your body goes into deep deep rest and your brain can prioritise intense repair and de stressing.
More reasons to LOVE self hypnosis (especially at menopause) 🧠
This is the best bit... ah, some 'me' time. But forget 'doing' a meditation. Let the hypnosis recording 'do it' for you! All you need to do is pop your ear buds in, get comfey and let the recording to the work. How easy is that?
Develop The Mind Body Connection
Your mind is the doctor writing the prescription and your brain is the pharmacy dispensing the 'drugs' that you tell it to do through the power and direction of your words and pictures. Hypnosis gives us an opportunity to practice this every day.
Give Yourself The Edge
I always like to think that athletes are the epitomy of health and longevity, well guess what? Athletes do hypnosis (they actually call it mental rehearsal but it's the same thing). Moving through menopause is about becoming an athlete of your own life and hypnosis will help you get the edge.
How do I listen to them?
What if I fall asleep during the session?
Can I get stuck in hypnosis?
Are there any contra indications to hypnosis?
How long are the recordings?
In case you're wondering what I sound like, I've created some previews for you so you can hear if we're going to get along.
What people are saying....
Dr Alison Grimston
"These audios are brilliant"
"These have been way more powerful than I expected them to be. All my menopause symptoms have improved."
"I feel very relaxed afterwards and much calmer. I have definitely noticed a difference in my stress levels and my ability to cope with hot flushes (which seem to be much fewer these days)."
