Your mind is playing with you.

Fear is the illusion of thought, do we live in a world full of illusions. Anxiety is an illusion but we’re connected to the fear and anxiousness all the time that we believe in it so much. That for some people it’s a constant threat on their mind and health.
What do I mean by the illusion? Have you ever been out walking and you see a dead cat lying in the road, when you get closer it’s a screwed up black plastic bag, yet just a few steps away, you believed that it was a dead cat.

Anxiety is an a illusion by The Nexus Team Anxiety HypnosisI know of someone who told me that one night they were walking down the road and they saw a settee in the middle of the road. When they got closer, it was the shading on the tarmac. The street lighting had made it a 3D image. It’s all an illusion and I’m sure you will have had your own experiences.
What colour is it?

How many times have you said that a colour is purple for example and someone else sees it as different shade and so on. And you cannot see how they can say it is the colour they think it is compared to your colour. Not so long ago we had the Optical illusion: Dress colour debate goes global. This was a dress that was seen as gold and white, blue and white, blue and blue or blue and black. It’s all an illusion.

Fact! There is no fear.

Anxiety, fear and stress are illusions and so believable that it’s hard not to believe in anything else. Also if you made the decision to state that you are anxious or have a fear of flying then that means you have been lying to yourself for a very long time. You may not want to own up to the fact that this isn’t true, so you created the lie and believed in it. In Birmingham I see many people who have suffered these exact same symptoms. So at Anxiety Hypnosis we use many tools to help people just like you to break their belief system and live an Anxiety free life. This works whether you live in Birmingham or in the rest of the country.

Tool kit thinking.

1) Stop trying to make sense of your anxiety.
2) Don’t judge anything to do with anxiety.
3) Don’t give any anxious thoughts any recognition.
4) Just for today, stand up to yourself and be fearless.
5) Chose a relaxing colour – now mentally paint your world that colour.

I realise that life can be hard and challenging, but you have to live a full healthy life and I can help you overcome your illusions of stress, anxiety, and fears.

Active thinking  with Anxiety Hypnosis by The Nexus TeamIt’s not always to do with what you thought…

Having an anxious moment in your day-to-day life can be bad enough, but it may not be the cause of your anxiety or stress…

Do you get anxious most of the time that leads to stress and feeling angry?

Well here’s a tip to help you combat these feelings all the time no matter what’s going on around you.

Think of it like this; see if you can implement this into your new way of thinking because if you’re always going to react in the same way, you’ll always get the same result.

Pressure, Pressure, Pressure…

Imagine the 4 wheels on a car, on the wheels you have 4 tyres and they need to be inflated to their optimum pressure. Too little pressure and the tyre will wear down and the car will drive unevenly or pull over to one side when you brake.

Over inflate the tyres with too much pressure and you create another problem. This is the same as people at work or in a relationship either not pulling their weight or the person getting over stressed with too much to do!

So whatever you’re doing, check to notice if the pressure in your mental thinking is at the optimum pressure to function at your best. Because if you have a problem at work and think it’s to do with work, when in actual fact it was an incident going to work that caused it.

Check list tips:

1) How is my relationship, have you kissed each other and done your own thing knowing that you left each other feeling happy.
2) Do you slack at work or do you know that you can work better as this will lead to a promotion or do you get away with the bare minimum.
3) How well do you take care of yourself, whether this is eating right or having the right hobby or activity to do? Maybe you need something to break the monotony of every day to day grind and help make you feel part of something. Or the reverse is that you are out too much and it’s impacting on the relationship.
4) Last but not least, what is yourself talking like? Is it positive and a self fulfilling prophecy of accomplishing tasks. Or one that is on a self destructive pattern of bad behaviour and constantly whines…

Get in touch today.

So I hope this helps and you’ll have 4 mental tyres inflated just right, give it ago and let me know how you get on.

If you would like to find out if I can help with any fears or anxiety problems, please let me know by dropping me a message.

You can download my free Axe-anxiety E-guide to help you in the meantime. Also you can send me a personal message of how you overcame certain difficulties in your life, such as fears and phobias and stress and I can share these to help others.

Thanks in advance The Nexus Team, Anxiety Hypnosis.

Is insomnia sending you MAD?


Anxiety Hypnosis by The Nexus Team helping Insomniacs

Matchsticks keeping your eyes open today?

People suffering from lack of sleep can and does have a major effect on that person’s wellbeing and health. Any form of not going to sleep at the right time will continue to have a negative spiraling effect.

If you have insomnia then you don’t need me to tell you what you’re going through. As you know this can be down to an over active anxious mind that finds it hard to switch off. Or a mind that is always searching for something in your life. It has been done for many years and the mind finds it easy to think in a negative way.

Dead at the wheel.

Think like this for a moment ,the part of the mind and body will go to sleep and it is a very selfish part of you that has no control over stopping it. If your mind wants to sleep it will and it doesn’t matter or care what you are doing. How many people drop off to sleep at the wheel while driving, there are many signs on the motorways to tell drivers to pull over and take a break.

Trick of the light…

Generally people watch TV or get onto their computer whilst in bed and this is the wrong thing to do if you’re an insomniac. There is a blue light on a computer screen and this light is similar to a morning blue light as we see in the real world. If you’re staring at your computer when you have to sleep, then your brain is being tricked in thinking that its morning. You know it’s time to sleep and of course it’s dark out, however the brain says its morning and this releases chemicals to the body to be active by staying awake.

Sleeping tips.

1) Avoid watching TV and looking at computers, mobiles at least 2 hours or more before bedtime.
2) Avoid any sleep in the day no matter how quick that nap is.
3) Create by preparing to a deep slumber of sleep with clean fresh bedding.
4) Take a warm bath with essential oils such as lavender.
5) Create a bedroom that only is set up for relaxing sleep and is a tranquil space.
6) Make sure your mind is settled and don’t go to bed worrying as this doesn’t achieve anything.
7) 400 and start to count down very slowly and see the numbers disappear before you say the next one in your head.
8) While relaxing you can imagine saying to each body part to go to sleep, (night-night feet and go to sleep and do this thought is a soft and gentle way that is like a gentle lullaby and with any luck before you get much further you’ll be well on your way to the land of nod…
9) Try not to toss and turn and to keep still, the more still you are will induce a sleep habit, keep still for at least 15 mins and resist the urge to move and as that passes you’ll be well on your way to sleep.
10) Last but not least, check that if you’re on medication this is not interfering with your sleep. Also be mindful of what you have eaten or the lateness you eat, notice if types of food or drink have a negative effect on your sleeping.

It’s all in the blood!

Anxiety that you go through on a daily basis can really make you tired mainly because of the constant high adrenalin hormone surging around your blood stream. If this stays high for too long you can do some serious damage to your body. It begins to have an effect on your kidneys, liver and thyroid to say the least. This will affect your immunity and ill health seems to be a part of everyday existence. The reason for the adrenalin is to give you strength so if you have to fight you won’t feel much pain or you can easily scale a 7ft wall with ease. However you don’t act the same when it has worn off.

We get used to the drip, drip, drip effect of the adrenalin until you can’t feel it and of course you never act on the drip effects of the adrenalin. But it is damaging your body and may take many years and all because the thoughts that you have create this, and this is why I say it’s all in your head as this is how it starts!

My tip would be practice patience every moment you can whether in a traffic jam or you’re starting to feel angry, or you’re thinking in the future of a bad event that might occur, then you need to stop that by thinking of what good thing may come of that situation.

Under new management.

Hopefully you can see how it is important that you manage your stress levels by you becoming in control of your thoughts. When you recognize your stress level, instead of reacting as you have done in the past for many years. Recognize how and what you would normally have done. Now stop any further action by acting on keeping calm. It may feel strange to begin with but your brain has to make new calmer connections so that in the future you will naturally stay much calmer.

Your mind needs to have a good manager or captain at the helm so to speak. Just like car headlights only light up a small portion of the road in front of you, that is all you have to do with your thoughts.
The mind has a tendency to wonder if not kept in check, particularly if you have always worried. If you want change then you have to do things that you have never done before in order to get what you have never had. Who would do the same negative thinking and expect a positive result, that’s crazy!

So at Anxiety Hypnosis we strive to offer the best way forward for you to beat anxiety, worry, stress, fear, depression and so on, you can even download our free E-guide on tip to help beat anxiety. So don’t feel alone, knowing help is here.

In summing up

Be mindful of your thoughts, no matter how bad things have been in the past, you know that you have always survived them and you will continue to survive and in essence thrive when you have the right mindset. True potential lies with your thoughts and even if you cannot do all that is required with good positive thinking, it will come eventually. Think of it like this, if you go to a gym you don’t expect to get fit or have muscles on the first day, or learn to play an instrument , you cannot master that either in one session. This is the same with positive thinking, don’t just try it for a few days and then say it isn’t working. Do your positive thinking everyday no matter how trying things become. Eventually you will be the master of your own domain and you will feel joyful and positive when you want to. Life has a plan and you won’t beat it so just enjoy the ride it gives you… Remember to contact me by letting me know how you’re coping, much better than before?



Anxiety Hypnosis

Anxiety Symptom

Anxiety is the Symptom
Anxiousness is the end result, i.e. the symptom; however people tend to think it is the cause of the problem. Being anxious just doesn’t come on for any reason at all, just like a plane just never falls out of the sky; there are always a series of events to make it happen.

Get Cured…
You may have anxiety with issues you face now, but take a look back over your life and notice how you would have anxious feelings towards other problems, such as learning to drive or freighted to take to people, but now you don’t get those anxious feeling because you somehow cured yourself.

Use Your Own Tips…
Think with how you got over any previous anxiety problems and they may have become less of a real worry to you now and you may even feel daft for getting so anxious in the first place. If you managed to get over those times then you can think of what method you used in the past to conquer your anxiety and try using that again by implementing those tips for yourself.

Anxiety is a primitive emotion that is there to protect us in times of dire straits in our distant past. You can only imagine how as hunter gatherers we were more connected to our natural environment and with the wild animals that could easily kill us whether large or small. Even today living in our relative sterile world we still see people who freak out at the close buzzing of a wasp or a house spider on the living room wall or the proverbial person who jumps on a stool in order to avoid a mouse. Although this is a quick overview, you can see why the anxiety is or was necessary in the past as we had to rely solely on our emotions, and that cannot be a bad thing, …can it?

Eaten alive…

In pre history you can imagine going on a hunt and your anxiousness would serve to protect you in case you’re eaten alive. In today’s world we don’t have the same environment. Image nipping down to the local shops, we really don’t have to be concerned about a lion going to eat us. But we don’t have the same emotions as a primitive pre historic man. However we still have the emotions and we have forgotten why.

It’s like an over protecting parent…

The next time you go out remember that your anxiety is there to protect you. Unfortunately its gotten a little over protected and will place the anxious feeling on to anything in the modern world. If you can imagine it, then you can have an anxiety attack over that thought, even before it’s become a real event!

Anxiety is something that we have all had and suffered to one degree or another throughout our life, whether this is related to school, work, the environment that we live in or by not having enough money and so on!


The definitions of Anxiety…

Worry, Fear, Uneasiness, Overreaction, Sweating, Shaking, Rapid breathing, Accelerated heartbeat, Impending doom, Irrational thinking, Feeling of dread, unusual quietness, Panic attacks, Feeling sick. As emotional human beings we can experience a wide range of feelings and so we are not necessarily tied down by one set of feelings when becoming anxious. However on saying this, people do have their own default setting when it comes to being anxious.

In order to change from this negative state you need to know what triggers your default setting when it comes to being anxious. What’s yours?


Stop supporting your Anxiety today!

You may be so used to the negative feeling of being anxious that you just get on with your life and take avoidance wherever you can. This may have worked for you in the past i.e. avoiding public speaking, take a flight or going to the dentist and so on.

Life has a way of catching up with you until you grow and move on, imaging you have avoided making that speech until it’s your daughter’s wedding and now you have to do it. Or the new love in your life wants to go abroad and you have to tell them that you can’t go. The years of avoiding the dentist and your teeth become so bad that you have to go in the end, you might as well have gone in the beginning. And so it goes…
