Guilt is the emotion or belief that one has done something wrong. At one point or another in our lives we can all experience guilt . It’s a message from our emotions to learn from what’s happened and not do it again so we don’t make the same mistake twice. There is no such thing as a perfect person, at least not in this day and age. We all have something worth feeling guilty about. The problem arises when we can’t move past the guilt and remain productive or when that guilt brings about self destructive behavior. Guilt stops you forgiving yourself, ties you to the past, and makes the future frightening and uncertain.
The thoughts associated with guilt likely come wrought with anger, embarrassment, shame, sadness, and remorse none of which are good feelings. Many of the things we feel guilty about are truly insignificant and unlikely to have life changing impacts. The only outcome of our guilt is self-loathing and negativity, neither of which produces any positive benefits. unresolved guilt is associated with greater distress and could also impact physiology in ways that might weaken a body’s ability to respond well to stress.
Hypnotherapy will help you successfully deal with feelings of guilt. It is used to train the mind to move past the guilt by prioritizing memories and putting them into perspective. Hypnotherapy sessions may take more or less time depending on the depth of the emotions and your response to the the treatment for guilt. It allows you to get in touch with our unconscious (subconscious) mind, where the root of our guilt resides. In this deeply relaxed state you are able to open the door to positive thinking and create permanent change.
Hypnotherapy can be very successfully used to stop most people feeling these negative emotions, for a specific event, in just one session. What is even more important to do after the feeling of guilt or shame is gone, is to re-evaluate the event and create strategies so that in any future situations that are similar, you will act much more in line with the values you want to honour. With the help of hypnotherapy you can quiet your inner critic, forgive yourself, be free and enjoy your life happily.
