Hello, and welcome to Jason newland.com. This is relaxation, was it relaxation, hypnosis for stress, anxiety, and panic attacks, I think that that's the name of the podcast, I
think is, is something like that really should maybe pay more attention to the things I've devoted my life to. It's just I've got quite a few podcasts. But that's the gist of it. It's basically this is aimed at helping those of you, I'm going to say those of us because I'm included in this category of people who have been affected. Very, very, very much so by stress, anxiety, and panic attacks. My name is Jason Newland, and please only listen to this when you can safely Close your eyes, which is the same for all of my recordings. And I would also advise
if you have listened to any recordings, podcasts or anything like that, that hypnosis or that sort of thing, relaxation. Then make sure it's safe. And that's not really my job to
be the warning for other podcasts, but just simple, important, you know, safety, your safety is gonna be number number one, it's gonna be the priority. So if you, you know, if you pilot in a helicopter, then don't listen to stuff like this. It's kind of an obvious thing, but seems obvious, but I don't know. Oh, by the way, that's my creaky chair. My big black squeaky chair is very squeaky I need a new chair. And I don't mind this chair because it's fairly comfortable. But it's worn out. And it's creaky. And because I make lots of recordings, you know, sometimes two, three a day sometimes. It'd be nice to have something that didn't squeal every time I moved. So there you go. This is kind of a mixture of thing. It's a mixture of things. So hypnosis doesn't have to be you lie in there with your eyes closed. asleep. because technically hypnosis. It's got nothing to do asleep by hypnosis is relaxing, which can lead to sleep. And I do a lot of sleep hypnosis recordings, and I've got quite a few podcasts which guide you to that point where you just completely zapped and zonked out. And I've been doing that for a long, long time.
So these recordings may have that effect on you. And some of the relaxation techniques may also have that effect as well. Because when you relax your body, your mind relaxes and when you're Actually bind, your body relaxes. And it's like a continuous.
perpetual, is it perpetual motion just continues. And it grows, the calmness, the sense of safety increases. And those levels of stress, anxiety that may have been there before decrease. Now I'll also just talk, sometimes I'll just talk about things connected to this subject. And some may think or psycho do with hypnosis. Really, and I'm not here to give her a lecture on hypnosis. That could be it would be very boring. And might also be wrong, some might not do justice.
But for me, hypnosis is very basically focusing on an idea you know, wrapping your mind around an idea. And c don't have to be unconscious in order to benefit from words which is evident. I'm sure in your life as well as mine. There's been times
when I've been wide awake, have heard something, whether it be a friend of said maybe I've heard on the television, on radio, maybe even in a song maybe just overheard it on the bus. And something's stuck with me. You know, there was once years ago and someone gave me a postcard or like a card. Not a greetings card though just to kind of a general kardi card or the no unit call you had on the inside, what might be on the health side of again.
It was you can either be right. Or you can be happy. So you can you can choose to be right. Or you can choose to be happy. Anaconda hit me. It's like, Okay. I didn't, didn't kind of get I got it. I didn't start thinking about it. Start to grow, you know, the idea or mind started to wrapper around the idea.
I started think about examples in my life where I really needed to be right. to the exclusion of perhaps friendship, especially to the exclusion of my own happiness. And I've experienced other people who were unable to back down for something that they believed they will write about and seeing the suffering that they've gone through because of it. Such as That simple idea. Really, my mind really wrapped itself around that idea.
And it stuck with me. Doesn't mean that I don't want to be right. But it's opened up a choice, it's made me realize that it is a choice
whether or not I pursue that need to be right. And let's face it, no one ever wins an argument.
Because when people argue even if the argument ends with both of them agreeing, you know, purse, you know, Bob agrees with Steve that Steve was right. Bob still not going to be happy at the end of it.
So, Steve hasn't really one. So this idea of wrapping your mind around something. So what I do is I try not offer ideas. I'll be like how I did when I did my hypnotic buffet podcast.
Except this is going to be focused solely on helping with stress, anxiety, and panic attacks. And I've been thinking about that. Because I had a conversation with a friend was to two people talking to each other, my friend and his friend.
And they were discussing the difference between anxiety attacks and panic attacks. once said that he has anxiety attacks, and have one said doesn't mean panic attacks. He said no, they're anxiety attacks. Think? I don't know but I think what was going on there is the person that said that he had anxiety attack attacks, didn't like the connotation of the word panic. The idea of panicking and being scared so kind of gravitate to the word anxiety attack, because it feared more with his sense of toughness or his sense of who he feels he is. When they pull me into the conversation, I said it's just two different terms for the same thing which didn't, wasn't enjoyed by either. Because they're neither were able to be right. Where they both felt there, right? is a big topic here. Isn't there being right? By NUAGE, right suicide K.
And STI thinking about it. And I fought from my own experience when I had panic attacks, which is why I called them
didn't feel anxious beforehand. When I just started popping up nowhere. And I did panic. Because I didn't know what it was. And then when they became more frequent I really got anxious About when the next one was going to happen. And, you know, what is this is something wrong in my brain, you know, that's how I was thinking at the time.
So I'm always quite stressed in the job I had. I felt good. You know, I didn't, I wasn't stressed as in dreading going to work or you know, any of that stuff. I was actually excelling in my work.
So when I had the first full blown proper attack, or, again, is the word attack, it's like somebody else is attacking us. And then we think, no, it's not someone else's us. And that feels even worse, like what you were attacking ourselves. That's just disgusting. behavior, why would we attack ourselves as self harm. So it's those things that I kind of struggled with. Because it didn't make sense to me. Didn't make sense. And the word panic really fits in with what happens when I had them. Because I ended up going to the hospital at least three times, thinking that I was having a heart attack.
By it wasn't. And then because it's generally late at night, I was there. But there was other people there as well. And I got saw pretty much straightaway. Because pains in the chest get seen quickly. Plus, always. I was 32 the first time I went. So I wasn't middle aged boys, not young young. Before the been 19 or 20, they perhaps wouldn't have took so much notice, but might have been the beard, I don't know. But then when I had the tests, and the chair gave me a tested my heart and blood pressure and all that stuff. And everything came back absolutely fine. I felt guilty. And the first time I started, you know, when you talk and you start crying, but I didn't cry, I kind of kept it in. Because I was so frustrated. I didn't want anything to be wrong with me. But at the same time, I didn't want to be wasting the time of the doctors. Within a doctor says that's what they're there for. But in my mind. I didn't deserve to be there because I wasn't ill then I didn't realize that it was an illness. Anxiety is an illness. It's a mental illness, which presents itself mentally and physically. space it is a physical assisted illness. very debilitating for a lot of people when untreated. And by untreated I mean when the person who's going through this it's not getting any help or not doing something to help themselves. And some people can't face doing that stuff. They don't know where to go. There's gonna be some people that would never listen to this ever in a million years. Because
that I believe that listening to some weird man on a podcast would be of any use. And you know what? I probably fit into that category myself a little bit.
back then. A little bit, I was a lot more open minded towards hypnosis because I already knew hypnosis by really struggled to help myself, which was very unusual, I didn't understand that. Such self hypnosis for stopping smoking, I used it for lots of different things over the years. And then to suddenly have this and I felt like I'd lost control of my brain of my mind.
And you may think, why am I telling you all this stuff? Why don't I just get on with? Why don't you do your magic transy hypnosis stuff. Or this is part of that. For one thing, those listening, this might be the first time you've listened to this. First time you listened to me, first time you've ever listened to any audio recording podcast, regarding anxiety, panic, stress, those kinds of things. And this might be the first time that you've heard somebody say something that you could perhaps relate to, to hear me talk about something that have clearly been through. As they clearly I mean, this online, but trust me, I've got better things to do than make recordings about stuff I don't know about. Like this. This, you know, I've got lots of stuff on Netflix, I could watch
a lot on Netflix so much. But just having somebody tell a little bit about this story. So instead of me saying, I know what it feels like,
for you, I don't know what it feels like for you. You don't know what it feels like for me. We all experience things differently. But there are going to be similarities. Maybe in the reaction, maybe in some of the situations like going to the hospital.
Maybe, you know things like thinking that I was losing my mind. Perhaps a lot of people felt that way during an anxiety episode, and I dealt with this for years was something that I just just went away straight away. Because there was no help.
There was books and I did read them all while I read quite a few of them. And some of them were useful. I suppose I was trying to find a way to make something that didn't understand. understandable, but read in about mean my doctor. First think prescribe not prescribe me diagnose. As me with panic disorder,
or anxiety disorder, maybe both and then then I was diagnosed with PTSD, post traumatic stress disorder. Due to previous things that happened when I was young
and then diagnosed with stress disorder repetitive stress disorders are just unsure you just make it up sometimes. Okay, let's put a bunch of words together now. Repetitive panics, stress disorder PTSD, underlying you noticed I needed help, I needed something more than antidepressants. And the entity presence maybe to the edge off. thing is I wasn't feeling depressed at the time. When it first started, I was feeling happy. Well, fairly happy quite up. But then as I got older, I was diagnosed with bipolar. And there's a kind of a manic stage. Like not manic, manic, God don't get that a high. Mine's more bipolar two as bipolar affective disorder. But the mania gets to level well, feeling good. Really, really good. You know, I could just I could watch ants play on the grass and film, you know, really excited about it. And feel good about the world and everything. But then it hits hits a barrier. And that barrier then turns into kind of a mania, a mild mania, which ultimately becomes anxiety like real panicky, a panic attack, basically. As I've generally got that under control, and learns that it's just a bunch of feelings. And you will survive it. But at the same time is horrible. There's no point lying, it's like saying, Oh, it's okay. You'll now not be bothered by it? Well, I think it's natural to be bothered by it. Because there's no reason to have extreme anxiety. Once you've had it, then it's something to look to reduce
something that you need to accept or something that's going to be there forever, because it weren't.
And even the breathe and part of the thing that we're normally I would say most people are unaware of their breathing. Nisi kind of run for a bath so it's particularly hope particularly cold outside
or you know, maybe meditation you may be focused on your breath, which is a natural process. But you know, with the panic, the breathing become become more obvious
and more awareness of that, which then puts too much focus on the breathing She can then lead to, you know hyperventilating or very kind of feeling of dizzy head and stuff. But you know what? There are millions of people out there in the world that have lung conditions, like asthma, sort of the biggest one. But other things as well, where someone would just need to take an inhaler, maybe need oxygen, but they learn to live their life and customize themselves to that breathing patterns that they have. So in a pet, the breathing may be shallower. So maybe initially, when they had the first asthma attack, or asthma problem, they might have gone into a panic, and a panic attack. Which will be natural, if you know, not being able to breathe is the worst thing possible.
But then when you know you, you can breathe, and you know that you will breathe, which is what people have asthma and other lung conditions, learn quite quickly, that actually, they can breathe. And they will continue to breathe. And the fact is, we do it for a second we're born to last second of our life, we breathe, it's the last thing to go.
So it's the most natural thing. And it's about having trust in our bodies, in our lungs and in the whole process of breathe into trust. Even if the lung capacity has reduced somewhat due to illness or also due to age, the lung capacity of someone I think my lung capacity, compared to where I was when I was 18 is possibly a third less. Like just statistically just natural leaf on the leaf on 14, nine nearly the lung capacity reduces with age. That's okay. That's just life, it's fine. The body adapts our minds Don't think about because our minds don't have to just lie You don't have to concentrate on the blood circulating around your body. You don't have to concentrate on your liver, doing its job or your kidneys. You don't have to concentrate on your toenails
growing. They do it naturally. There's no conscious effort to say we're breathing. We kind of have no choice but to breathe. I mean, you know try try to hold your breath. See what happens. Eventually, you have to breathe. Because your body will force you can hold your mouth and your nose with your own hands. And eventually your brain will force your hands to let go of your nose
and move away from your mouth so that you can breathe. We have this safety mechanism built in to us. But sometimes we consciously have forgotten that Safety, the ability to breathe, the ability to relax, the ability to just see things through just to allow whatever changes that are occurring to occur. Just like with a broken bone, it hurts sposta Yeah, hurts for a reason. And then it stops hurting gradually,
over time. You don't have to do anything. Just, you know, make sure you don't put any pressure on it, and then give it space and time to heal. And it does it on its own.
In a way. That's what happens with anxiety and stress. If we get out the way, consciously Get out of the way, and put some trust in ourselves, person trust in that part of our body, that part of our mind. That keeps everything running, keeps the blood flowing, keep still oxygen, you know, pumping it through the blood to different parts of the body keeps the healing process going. repairing the different parts, keeps the hairs growing, keeps the food digesting and then evacuating out. I love that word evacuating. But you know, the whole process is natural and automatic. As is the process of relaxing and releasing stress. reducing anxiety. In the same way is if you've got a broken arm, you don't do press ups.
You don't go to the gym and lift weights with a broken arm. It's in plaster or in a cast and needs to be rested for six weeks or however long. In the same wave somebody go. having anxiety attacks means maybe some lifestyle changes are necessary. Maybe treat your body and mind the same way as you would if it was a broken body or broken bone. On some sides not taking it too seriously, by another side, taken him more seriously.
In the sense of it's a medical condition, it's an illness and you need time to heal and to recover. And that might also involve learning new strategies to deal with whatever may have caused the anxiety or stress, but then you may not be aware of what it is.
But you don't need to necessarily be aware four chords there as long as you're aware that it's occurring.
That hypersensitivity, the kind of comes with the anxiety disorder, a hypersensitivity is something that can be reduced to a point where perhaps there's a part of you that it doesn't care as much about whether it occurs or not. You know, those days when I remember, every day was occupied by will I have an anxiety attack? Or won't I? Will I be in public or won't I?
What will I do eventually I had periods where I didn't care I periods when I fought, you know, this thing's bullying me. This thing is pushing me around and dictating to me why I should do and controlling my life I stopped doing things that I enjoy doing. For fear of those feelings that may occur and then realize in the inner world perhaps perhaps it's time to know you control to a feeling maybe it's time to take back that control. But without being controlling. You know, allowing yourself to feel tired if you feel tired. allowing yourself to feel angry, if you feel angry. allowing yourself to feel a bit stressed if you feel a bit stressed.
Not trying to hold the feelings in holding it all together.
It's just basically just the balloon ready to pop. Bloom can only hold so much air. Can it pump so much air into it? Before it gives way. You know what, if you make a small little pinprick
in the blown, tiny little prick, maybe a few this tiny little prick with a pen and you pump air into it continuously, but not high pressure which is continuously the air will have a release. There will be a release valve. You could call it So as human beings live in in the world we live in this this stimuli
visual things we hear things we see emotions that we experience and that's being pumped into this balloon and the balloon gets big and there is no release eventually it will pop if he got that release valve little you know that little hole somewhere in the balloon so the balloon can never get full can never get too big. Always got that little relief which then calms your mind calms how you feel, changes the way that you respond to things because that former hypersensitivity to outside stimuli, as well as your own thoughts and feelings
can never build up to be too pressurized because always always got that release valve. Which means then there's no blockages there's no roadblocks, there's no there's no stuckness that may be the felt like there was before.
But now obstacles have been removed. And the metal what goes into that Loon. Everything will eventually be released through that small hole as new air is pumped into today's mixture of feelings. Those images from the news those conversations that maybe didn't go so well.
All releases through that small hole in the side of the balloon so that the pressure never builds. So the blockage is unblocked just makes it easier. Just like if you're driving on a motorway and sometimes you can go the whole journey without to stop at all. Traffic just keeps going. No breakdowns. Nothing, no traffic jams. No gridlock. No roadworks is just smooth and continuous and relaxing. And that's what this turns into. Because once you've got that release valve takes away those roadblocks in our head. Those moments that build into
something more than the need to be an anxiety level that's way higher than is necessary. Which means is less chance of overreaction less chance of being concerned about something that may not happen, more chance of feeling a sense of increased comfort within your own self mean literally within yourself having that calmness and sense of safety and belief that actually, from now on, things will be different for you, things will be different and will change. And you can and will deal with things that come your way
and may actually be really surprised how easily you are able to manage and deal with certain aspects of your life. That may be in the past, you found very difficult to believe how easy it is now looking forward. Because let's face it, we use the term to look forward to something look forward to something that's pleasant. We look forward to something that's going to be good. We look forward to something that's going to be maybe useful, helpful, healthy, look forward to something that may be healing, engaging. We look forward to something that may be transforming or may be leading. And helping you build towards the kind of life that you deserve. for yourself.
To look forward is a very positive statement. To look forward to something. It also means to look forward, literally, you're looking forward, you're seeing future possibilities. In your mind, you're seeing a future. And because it's in your mind, you get to choose what your futures gonna be.
Regardless of what happens, you get to choose in your mind what your imagination chooses. So if you're going to go on by a car, a Ferrari in five or 10 years time you get to choose what color that cars gonna be in your mind. Because your mind you can choose the color you can choose the type of car
Because that's your imagination. And our imagination is so powerful and so influential upon us, and our behaviors, and our thinking and feeling, and emotions. So, as you look forward towards tomorrow with your imagination, which is yours, that's your canvas is a blank canvas, which you can paint anything on.
Regardless of your artistic abilities. You can make any picture of the future that you want
for yourself to feel more relaxed and calm is something that you can imagine. Because that is looking forward and the power of your mind, the power of your imagination,
to deeply affect the outcome of the future that you're looking to,
is incredible. Just how easy he can just let go of old thoughts, unhelpful feelings and beliefs, though again in a way of you feeling more relaxed,
calm you know, ultimately, pen you deserve to be happy, then you deserve to feel more relaxed than you deserve. To enjoy more peace of mind. Don't you deserve to be able to look forward to the future that you want for yourself a feature that you have designed in your imagination. And the more vividly you're imagine feeling completely relaxed. Those times when feeling relaxed and calm, both mentally and physically can only be an advantage to you is more likely to happen. Once you wrap your mind around that idea that from now on, you will enjoy more of a sense of calmness and relaxation in your mind and your body. More More relaxation in your mind and your body which gives you something to look forward to. Future of comfort, calmness. And the ability to enjoy being happy now that is the end of this recording and I shall make another one very soon. So, I suppose if you like why do I'd advise subscribing wherever podcasts you're listening on, wherever podcast player or host and if you subscribe and then no doubt they'll inform you and the new one is uploaded. But there will be another one very soon. So I wish you happiness. And hopefully you'll give yourself a chance. Just let your mind wrapped around some of these ideas so they can feel more relaxed within yourself. Remember, you are a human being news. You really deserve to be happy. Take care and I shall speak to you very soon. Bye
Hello, and welcome to Jason newland.com. This is relaxation, was it relaxation, hypnosis for stress, anxiety, and panic attacks, I think that that's the name of the podcast, I
