What is negative self-talk?
Negative self-talk is the words used to put yourself down and also includes negative thoughts.
These types of thoughts are very damaging and manifest into whatever you think. Saying "I am a loser" over and over creates that reality. Your mind belives these commands and does as you ask.
Breaking the Patterns!
As a Hypnotherapist, I've heard some of the most horrifying negative self-talk imaginable. It is so important to quickly break this speech pattern very quickly. I do so by using two methods: pattern interrupt and mind-bending language.
Pattern interrupt is simply breaking the current negative thought process. I would simply ask the subject to complete a quick task: for this example ask them to say their phone number backwards. After they complete this task I simply change the topic and break the pattern.
Mind-bending language is more complex and requires advanced training. It is a grouping of words that causes the subject to have an unconscious moment and look internally for the correct response. Here is an example:
"What is you not, not feeling sad?"
This question causes the subject to lose their thought process and breaks the pattern, simply because of its structure. It is highly effective and can create a breakthrough healing moment.
Hypnosis has many benefits including smoking cessation, addictions, weight management, anxiety relief, and confidence boost just to name a few benefits.
