Regular price £0.00

Hello, and welcome to stress, anxiety hypnosis.com My name is Jason Newland, and this is relaxation, hypnosis for stress, anxiety and panic attacks. A very long title. Please only listen when you can safely Close your eyes. Now, today's recording is actually a request. Somebody sent me a message on Facebook saying do they enjoy my recordings? And could I make a recording for that was that I have to remember what I'm doing now was it for hypochondria or kindness, a hypochondria in a sense of the anxiety and the panic that comes with thinking that you may be ill. So I kind of got a few things to say about this.
middly I don't have any information about the person that sent the message. As far as what they were hoping for me to discuss in this recording. Because although these sessions aren't, it's not formatted in a hypnosis kind of format that you may get elsewhere. In fact, I'm pretty sure that you won't find
probably anyone in the world that does it. The way I do it doesn't mean that I'm special or anything, it's just I just do it differently.
What don't do the formal trance or deep sometimes I do. Generally, I kind of think of it like this You got your unconscious mind you got your conscious mind.
And I would say that the conscious mind when the conscious mind is listening, sews the unconscious mind. At the same time. The unconscious mind is not ignoring just like your uncle, your conscious mind is not ignoring one saying but consciously you may drift off. You may have your eyes closed, which I do suggest only in the sense of so you don't
listen to me when you drive in or doing something that you need your attention for. But even if you're consciously drifting a bit, your mind is still listening. And it's still absorbing. Because if we weren't able to have changes occur by consciously listening, if we just relied on being in some kind of hypnotic trance where you just
practically zapped out then self help audios, self help videos, self development books would be of no use to people. But self development books really are useful. Life Changing effect or any book could be only takes one sentence that resonates with you. You know whether the subject is relationships or this subject that we're talking about now. Just that one sentence, that one paragraph that that one idea. My, my voice is going croaky for some reason. Hopefully, it'll start to go back now good. So that's kind of my description of what I do. So talk about things, talk about ideas. And you can just listen. And maybe something will resonate within you, something will change within you. I do I also try to discuss my own personal experiences with this subject, as well. Also, from experience, I've been doing this a long time now, making recordings is from the feedback that I've received over the last 13 and a half years of making these recordings. People say that just listening to me, actually is relaxing. without me even needing to mention the word, relax. And I suppose part of that would be the fact that I'm not shouting. Because that would be really unrelaxed. But just talking softly, discussing gently in a gentle way, the subject matter of panic, stress, anxiety, talking about this subject, which is a very broad subject. And it's very personal, for each individual, I believe needs to be discussed, gently. Because I don't necessarily think that where I say we but I'm gonna say this anyway, maybe I'm wrong. I don't think that we are always as gentle with ourselves as we could benefit from being more by that. I mean, just internally, the things we say to ourselves, the way we respond to ourselves, the way we perhaps respond to the outside world, perhaps the things we think and the things we expect and our way of observing the world. So we're not always particularly kind to ourselves, which I would advise I would suggest changing that would actually change your life. But being more gentle with yourself, change your life. It's not just the words that you say it's not just the sentences that you tell yourself the things
you say to yourself. Not just the criticism, the self criticism. It's also maybe the tone of it. The tone, the the energy behind it, the you can get the feeling your internal response to when you talk to yourself. And I don't mean like having a big full blown conversation.
I only do that with Andre the ferret ever talks back? He does squeak a little bit sometimes. But the the tone of how you speak to yourself internally. Self voice that self criticism, I think we all have to some degree. And even I've been thinking about this lately, even which is something I do myself, even if it's cloaked
in humor. My question there is, does that make it okay? If it's clothed in humor, does that make it okay? So I put myself down, you know, not just internally but outwardly to other people, or make fun of my weight and make fun of by
big juicy belly, but I got and the other day someone said that to me. And I didn't like I was walking in the park and a couple of
people are nowhere there and I said went solo and one of them said, I've you got Andre and your coat. I said no. And he kept repeating. It's a basic get I understood what he meant straightaway. But he was just trying to say that. I barely looked like I had Andre on my little boy, Andre the favorite underneath my jacket.
And I didn't enjoy it. I'll be honest with you. And that was done with humor. We attempted humor. And I do wonder maybe how useful that is. If we say stuff to ourselves like that, even in humor, and I'm a big fan of humor are a big fan of you know,
looking at things in a more light lights way, looking things in a humorous way to maybe reduce the stress and anxiety of the event. So it's a great way to do things, but is it cloaking in putting yourself down? Is it hiding? The fact that maybe you're not being very kind to yourself?
So that's one thing that I kind of was thinking about. Someone subject of hypochondria and his various different angles to look at this from it's kind of in the sense of anxiety, panic, you got hypochondria meaning the whole, the meaning of the word is to imagine that person imagines that they're all when they're not. If you have extreme anxiety, that is an illness. extreme stress is an illness. It's not permanent, it may be temporary may be really temporary, you know, might just be for the occasion, just for one occasion, it might be very debilitating. So when I was going through the extreme times of anxiety and panic, I think most of my time was spent thinking about
panic attacks. That was what I was thinking about worrying about when the next one was going to happen, worrying about where it was going to happen. So did that make me a hypochondriac being worried about something that was going to happen. Although it didn't have to happen, because worrying about it and expecting it to happen. made it much more likely to happen. comes back to that sentence, we become what we think about. So is that hypochondria? Because a lot of people that would be labeled hypochondriacs.
Maybe they need to be labeled or not labeled, or maybe they need to be began to have a diagnosis or get some help get help with that stress and anxiety. Because maybe, with someone labeled as a hypochondriac their anxiety and panic is focused on the worry of being ill, or the feeling that they are, or have got various different illnesses
is a very, very famous thing. Um, I say famous, but it's well known in the nursing world and Doctor world, not Doctor Who, but you know,
doctors and my have updated a few nurses over the years. And for some reason, I don't know why it just just happened.
And when you become a nurse, or as an example, we might be other professions as well. But when you become a nurse, you learn about lots of different illnesses, diseases, conditions, you know, it's like a big amount of knowledge presented to your brain and it seems to be a natural process that Not all but some trainee nurses and trainee doctors would start to think that they had these illnesses, these diseases. So in a sense, learning about all these different conditions caused temporary hypochondria and then they just move out of it you know, they move on with the next thing. But it seems to be like a standard thing that quite a few nurses go through. That's what I've been told.
So as it's temporary, and I would say that hypochondria is temporary. Some would say everything is temporary, which technically is it means that it will pass as every panic attack has passed, no panic attack lasts. sometimes feels like it's lasting forever, but it never does, eventually, is subsides. Because it's impossible to keep any feeling going. continuously. No feeling whether it's pain or pleasure, can continue constantly, the whole time at the same level for just continuously forever, can't not broken a few bones over the years. And difference between we know when you broken a bone basically because the initial pain
stays a diamond stays forever be still there. So if you fall, you hurt your hand, let's say I fell out of the bath a couple of years back and I broke my wrist. Now the Undo is broken because the initial pain didn't subside when that happens, that's a good clue. It's a very good chance that it's fractured or broken. And you need to get to the dock bar to the hospital to the emergency ward and get it checked out.
But you know what, even when I was in the hospital emergency waiting to be seen the pain did subside not down to the level of that it would do if it was bruised but it did fluctuate. And trust me I had nothing else to focus on. Because a broken bone gives you definitely a lot of it gives you a good focus or good focus but gives you something to definitely focus on. It was just my wrist so it was it was bearable. Had it be my leg or something it might be a different matter but because of my litho which is my wrist. And I could if it'd been like it's never a straight line it's always up and downs above above the line down below the line, above or below is changing. Just in a way as stress levels always change Sometimes they go a bit too high and you can feel it. But then it subsides again, that's always changing different levels. Depending on I guess, environment, depending on your health can, you know pencil what you've had to eat. Because you know, if you've had too many cups of coffee,
you're dreading, they might be gone a bit too much. Your heart might be be in a bit more than normal.
So it might be a little bit spiky, a little bit more. But it's still never stays at one position. So always continually going back down again. Rising and going down, like the ocean like the, you know, the tide. The waves, constantly moving, constantly coming in, going out coming in going out. Even when the tides moving inwards. It still doesn't just the water doesn't just all come in on one time. It's gradual. And is still going out. It's coming in, we're still going out again, might come in further be still coming out. So in a way, if you think about hypochondria. First of all, I think it's a nice label to give yourself
because technically, I would say that I could definitely have called myself a hypochondriac back then, because I really did feel the always, you know, something wrong would be it was time to fall did I have diabetes?
Did I have something wrong with by adrenal gland Did you know I ended up in the a the emergency ward in hospital at least twice, maybe three times. We pains in my chest thinking I was having a heart attack. I wasn't. And another time I actually really thought that I was going crazy. And it's not a word I normally use, especially as I got bipolar, but at that time, I hadn't been diagnosed with anything other than Well, I've been diagnosed with anxiety disorder, stress, depression, various different things. But I literally thought that my I was going out of my mind. I mean, really, genuinely thought that I was losing my mind at one point, and I remember that night.
Rose remember that night. And I began walking to the hospital about three o'clock in the morning. And it was a long walk. In fact, I didn't even know how to get there from where I
lived. But I just had I was just walking because I had to walk. I had to I couldn't just sit still. And eventually I calmed down eventually. Our mind calmed down. Maybe the cool air, some oxygen, you know a bit more fresh air being outside. It was late so there was no cars or didn't you know it's pretty big. Yeah, it was really bit fresher.
Did that make me a hypochondriac? Or did it mean that actually I had a condition
an anxiety condition which pay pains in my chest feeling that I was ill was part of that as part of that And you know what? One thing I kind of noticed with anxiety and panic
is it's easy to start ignoring our bodies. And just dismissing everything as being anxiety, as you say, anxiety is just panic. But we don't know what's going on inside our body. I don't mean this in an alarming way, but just in a factual way, in a caring for yourself way to just show yourself a bit more respect and concern, in a sense of if your body's hurting, treat yourself the same way as you would done before you'd had anxiety. Treat yourself the way you would, if your partner or your child or your parents or someone you cared about, had that same symptom, physical symptom, instead of dismissing it as always just anxiety. It may well be. And there's no such thing as just anxiety, or just stress. Because I've experienced back when I was 24, pretty bad 10 months of physical illness, which was caused by stress. I didn't even know that that was what caused by it physically, physically, Ill in my stomach, I was bleeding, hose all kinds of stuff, and it was down to stress. Stress can be the cause of physical complaints, physical conditions, which is why someone with a heart condition is told to try and relax more is told to not get stressed somewhere have hypertension, high blood pressure, someone with whatever their condition may be pretty much any physical condition. The doctor would say try and relax
more. Which can be something that we all can benefit from relaxing more. And it's not just listening to me or do I do quite a few other different podcasts, relaxation, sleep sessions, things like that.
So looking after yourself and treat yourself kindly. So instead of calling yourself names like a hypochondriac, when If not, they're just being gentle. Be I mean, I'm talking really gentle. The same way as if you went into a hospital ward. You wouldn't go in there, start shouting
and go start swearing at the patients. You wouldn't start judging them. Be gentle. You'd be kind. It'd be nice. kind of the way that you can start being towards yourself now. More importantly, when perhaps we're not feeling too good. That is even more important, the time to be so gentle. So calm and loving towards yourself.
So if you don't have it already, create that bedside manner for yourself that you need for you. Because you're with yourself 24 hours a day, your entire life, and no body else ever can compete with that. No one will ever know you the way that you know you.
Which means Surely, you need to be the kind is person to you. You're the person who loves you, more than anybody else will or can.
Because you need yourself more than you ever need anybody else. You need yourself. Your whole life, you're traveling. You're on a journey, we're on a journey. And we're our only companion that travels right from the star. We'll have people come along, friends, family, we the only person you're the only person that's with you, every second of every day, your entire life.
We need to get on with ourselves don't make it seems like it's not, not even if it's not should, or could, or a one two, it's Scorpion must squat be as hot being a very strong definite must be kind of look after yourself. Emotionally be there for yourself. This may sound all flippy floppy to some people by think it really makes a lot of sense. And saying out loud. I think it makes even more sense to me. Because I really believe this. And I want to do this more for myself genuinely want to spend more time being gentle and kind with me. So I'm doing this with you. My intention is to, to kind of travel on this journey alongside you, even though it's from a distance and it's you know, it's just by voice that you listening to the intention, real intention is there. And you can hear that in my voice. Generally, generally genuinely a genuinely, genuinely want to ease the suffering that stuff stress and anxiety and panic has brought your life in the past so that you don't need to experience or re experience any of that stuff to that level ever again.
And it's not about getting rid of stress altogether. We need a degree of stress In order to function, just a general alertness. But I think we should, you know, that's kind of the standard psychological views, we need a certain amount of stress.
Often they should rename it. I don't think it's stress, I think stress is the right word. I think stress is to people with me people, you may agree with this stress for people that have gone through extreme anxiety, panic and stress. To those people, to those of us stress is a dirty word is not a, it's not a nice word, it's not a word that we perhaps think fondly of, for good reason.
Maybe we can have our own word for that physical experience is required, to feel alert, to be awake, to be able to function under pressure. At times, because the outside world continues, what we do here is we work on the inside, we work on how you feel inside,
which changes how you experience the outside, emotionally. So the those things that happen outside in the environment, work relationships, family school, wherever it may be,
I don't have the same effect that maybe they used to then have that ability, that trigger in ability that perhaps, we used to give them credit for. It's almost like we were given
permission for the environment, to do whatever it wants to do, and to just push our buttons whenever we wanted to.
So when you take those buttons away, in the same way as if you've, if you've got a toddler
in your house, you may not have children. But pretty much everybody has seen a small child, when they first start running around. And they will grab everything, try and get anything that they can get hold off. You have to you have to sort of make your house safe. It might involve covering up plugs. It might involve making sure that there's nothing dangerous. They can get hold of making sure there's no cups of hot coffee or tea at their level, which they can grab. This is about childproof in your house, or that room. So no some people that have a gate. So the child can't get out the stairs. childproof in
the stairs. So maybe we can childproof a cell selves or environment proof ourselves. You think of the environment as being this little toddler
and just grabbing and pushing the buttons that were there before which would maybe trigger stress trigger anxiety trigger would be a Going after emotions that you know really didn't lead to a peaceful mind and kind of left us feeling like we were out of control and be in as if giving the power away to the environment giving the power away to others blaming other everything else on other outside things being reactive to outside situations. But then when you childproof yourself, or environment proof yourself, you take away those buttons, cover them up, hide them, paint over them, remove them completely. So that outside sources, people, the environment, being on a bus, traveling, going to work, being at work, being at school, being told off by your boss, having a difficult conversation with your loved ones, wherever it might be. That though, those buttons can't just be pressed. By outside sources, they can't be pressed by other people. See your child proofing yourself, your environment proofing yourself. You're protecting yourself from the environment, just doing whatever it wants to do. By not being reactive. By actually taking back your control. And realizing that you don't have to react. You can choose to that's your choice. And if you choose to react is no longer reacting. It's responding. Which is similar but very different. So as far as it goes with the hypochondria. My suggestion is, go easy on yourself, if that's how you feel about yourself, or if that's how you used to feel. And regardless of what level of anxiety stress you may have experienced.
If there's a physical issue, if you've got physical pain somewhere, treat yourself the way you would have treated yourself before. Do what you would have done before. So if you would have gone to the doctor before, go to the doctor, get yourself checked out. Make sure that you are okay. That's part of being kind to yourself. That's a big part of loving yourself. Taking care of yourself. Giving yourself labels like hyper contract is the opposite to being kind to yourself. It also reduces worry, reduces stress and anxiety. When that reduces the way you feel physically will improve. It's kind of got no choice but to improve because the way you think affects the way that you feel. hope that this has been mildly useful and I We'll speak to you again very soon. Take care. Be kind to yourself. Lots of love bye
