Re-Programming Your Brain

Struggling with a mental illness can be difficult. But what happens when you have done everything you can and you’re still not seeing results? You’ve done the therapy and you’ve tried the medication. Maybe you’ve even tried meditation or hypnosis or all of the above. You may be frustrated and hopeless which does not help your mental state to begin with. Holistic Sound Healing is a great way to clear any of those negative emotions that you have stored in your body. You are not your mental illness, you just happen to be living with a mental illness. But that is all it is. It’s an illness. And with the proper help you WILL get through it.

Holistic sound healing targets the different emotions that your body is storing. Whether you deal with depression, anxiety, OCD or any other type of mental illness, holistic sound healing can pinpoint what emotions you are feeling and potentially why you are feeling them.

Mental illness can be difficult when you are constantly told you will be battling it forever or, at the very least, a long time. Through holistic sound healing you can actually find relief and not be trapped by this illness. It is difficult to break free from the chains of mental illness when you are constantly told that you are different or ill or have a disorder. By changing your mindset you can open a world of possibilities.

Bob Proctor once gave the example in an interview with the Networking Times Magazine. “I’ll give you a good example for your readers to try. Question to the readers: are you right-handed, or left-handed? Okay, now I’m going to ask you to sign your name. Sign your name on a piece of paper. Now put the pen in your other hand. Don’t just read this—put your pen in your other hand. You can feel the tension building in your body. Your mind reacts to it. You think ‘I don’t write with my left hand. This is so uncomfortable. It’s so cumbersome. I’m going to make such a mess. I’m going to make myself look foolish, and what will my neighbor say?’ We’re not programmed to write with our other hand. People are programmed to live a certain way. What we’re saying is change the programming. It’s like learning a new language. It’s almost as if you go home and your family doesn’t speak English any longer, but French or Spanish. Eventually, you would learn what they are saying, but it would be extremely difficult and very stressful at the beginning.”

Mental illness can be compared to this. By using your opposite hand to write, or by choosing a different way to think of something, you will start gaining a new skill or a new behavior. At first it can be very stressful and almost tedious, but through time it will become natural. By changing the way you think you are opening up a possibility to a new way of life. This could even potentially eradicate your mental illness! I’m no doctor, so I have no guarantee. However, I know for a fact that positive thinking can go a long way. By telling yourself your different goals and objectives and implementing them into your daily life, you have the potential of changing your life! By changing the way you think and using Holistic Sound Healing as a way of dealing with your emotions, you will be overall happier and lead a healthier life.

How stress can be good for you

Everyone knows that stress can have many negative side effects to your body. It can lead to heart problems, digestive problems, chronic pain, and central nervous system difficulties among many other things. Stress is overall bad for your body and when not treated it can affect your entire system.

Thinking about how stress affects your body is enough to stress you out! It’s a vicious cycle that doesn’t leave much room for comfort. But according to a study through Harvard, people who viewed stress as a good thing ended up not experiencing the harmful effects from stress. By telling yourself that stress is good for the body and that it is helping you complete your tasks or challenges in a more efficient way, stress will not be perceived as harmful to your body.

When you are stressed your blood vessels constrict and your blood pressure rises. However, when you view your stress, as a good thing you are no longer worrying about it and your blood vessels will relax. Now you are only left with an increased heart rate, which can be a good thing. That is the way your body reacts when you are experiencing joy and pleasure. Your body releases stress hormones into the body, when it experiences something arousing or fearful. Both release stress hormones.

By changing the way you perceive a situation or how you think about something, you can change your life. Only thinking negatively will only give you negative results. Perceiving negative situations as a positive or benefit, you will be able to change the outcome or the way you feel during that situation. For example, lets say that you have a fear of roller coasters. You are waiting in line for the roller coaster, your heart is pounding and your palms are sweaty. You can’t stop thinking about how nervous you are. You just got in the cart of the roller coaster and you can’t stop shaking. Instead of thinking about how treacherous this experience is going to be, stop and tell yourself that your body is preparing you to be very excited. By turning your adrenaline into happy thoughts, you will be able relax your blood vessels and become less stressed. Throughout the ride you may even tell yourself that this is fun and you want to do it again! By the time the ride is over, your knees may still be shaking but you have a smile across your face. Although you were stressed throughout the whole time, you were telling yourself you were having fun and that enabled you to become less anxious. And the more rides you go on and practice that thought pattern you may even enjoy it!

So what happens when you know that you are stressed out but you still can’t make yourself think that it is a good thing? Holistic Sound Healing is a great way to release that fear of stress that we all have buried deep down. By releasing your fears of having anxiety or stress we are able to live our lives without worrying about what will happen if we are stressed out. Which that thought alone can give you enough stress! Our bodies are connected in every way. If something in your body is compromised, the rest of your body will be affected. It is important to remember that by viewing your body as a holistic being, your whole life will be healthier. Holistic sound healing is the first step in managing your emotions and finding a healthier solution to the different problems or difficulties in your life. By eliminating stress you are opening the doors to a healthier life.

Guilt

If you are experiencing guilt in your life chances are you went through something traumatic or life changing. Even if you didn’t go through something traumatic you are holding onto a deep rooted emotion that you are not able to rid yourself of. This could be from disobeying your mother as a teenager and building resent, or cheating on a significant other. Guilt doesn’t even have to be present in such dramatic ways. You could feel guilty for cheating yourself of things you deserve. If you look inwardly, guilt can sometimes be present as a symptom of depression. You are lacking the confidence you need to feel worthy enough of certain situations and encounters and you may feel guilty about that. If someone spends money on you or you feel you are undeserving of being treated a certain way, you may be experiencing a lack of self worth which can lead to depressing thoughts.

But fear no more; you no longer have to be neither guilty nor depressed. Through Holistic Sound Healing we are able to distinguish what memories and thoughts are linked to your deep-rooted guilt and give you a more positive outlook on situations and even life! Therapy can suppress your guilt and make it easier to deal with, but Holistic Sound Healing will give you an opportunity to break free from those emotions. But in the mean time it is important to tell yourself different things to assist you in your process of not feeling guilty. In order to do this you can tell yourself these affirmations.

“I am the master of my own feelings and I will learn from my mistakes. Nobody is perfect and I will learn and grow.”

“I am worthy of amazing experiences and opportunities. I will accept what comes into my life with gratitude and open arms.”

“I am perfect just the way I am. I believe in myself and the people around me.”

“Today is the best day to let go of the past. I am worthy of a brighter day. I will not hurt the people in my life by past mistakes. I will show them I am a better person with each and every day.”

These are some affirmations that can assist your brain into not feeling guilt any longer. Your thoughts are what ultimately control what you feel. Do you have the power to control your guilt?
