People come to me, seeking out my hypnosis for stress for Melbourne locals because they worry about things that might happen and have now made it an ingrained habit that they cannot stop.
They ruminate about something that has happened in the past, as if it is happening presently. Because they are still dwelling on it, they allow the worry to remain alive. Certainly, their unconscious mind accepts that this is how to respond to stress or anxiety. After all, it has been practiced so often, how could the unconscious mind respond in any other way?
When you first began learning how to drive a car, you kept going until you were unconsciously competent. In other words, you would be able to drive the car without thinking, and still keep up the habit effortlessly.
Have you ever driven from home to somewhere else and not remembered the drive? That’s because you were driving subconsciously.
This is the same thing we do with the behaviours we have learned over many years of practice. Our subconscious responds to the practice we have laid down. And if this is the way we “do” stress and anxiety, then we habitually turn to this same strategy whenever we feel that anxiety or stress.
It’s the fight/flight response, where we are alerted to danger and respond in the same way we always have, allowing the cycle to repeat.
