Enhancing Relationships: Hypnosis To Develop A Better Understanding Of People
When I talk about relationships in general, I like to mention a few things first…
In the earlier days of my career as a hypnotherapist, many people used to ask me if I had plans to create and put together hypnosis tracks or a programme to help enhance their relationships and I tended to give a fairly stock reply when I responded in the negative to the question.
My stock reply was that I had struggled with relationships myself, not found someone I had felt capable of committing any substantial part of my life to and despite having encountered a number of relationships, I had not deemed any of them to have been particularly successful. Who was I to, therefore, advise on how to have effective relationships?
I had many great friendships and professional relationships, just not the kind of personal relationships people were asking me about. Maybe I could have suggested that my listeners do as I say, not as I do, but that felt disingenuous, so I never wrote about it or really worked with relationships a great deal.
Just as I had finished reading Osho’s book on the art of aloneness, I met the woman who was to be my wife. She became my wife, and we have had several years of what I consider to be a truly remarkable and wonderful relationship; a marriage that has already had to endure some incredible challenges that we have overcome together. Some of the things we encountered may have pulled people apart, however, we have grown stronger and share something that only the two of us truly appreciate.
We have a lot of joy, laughter, mutual respect, support and know each other incredibly well.
At the time of writing this, it was our wedding anniversary and as we celebrated another year together and look toward many more years of happiness, I have started to feel much better equipped to offer up techniques and strategies for helping others with enhancing their relationships. The requests have continued and so I am finally yielding to such requests and several hypnosis tracks on offer here are going to be showcasing ways of using hypnosis to help advance ourselves to subsequently enhance our relationships.
Note that I said “advance ourselves” because we can only really be fully in control of ourselves within our relationships.
This hypnosis audio track that I offer here is one I have used with clients and also upon myself. My main motivation for tracking down this kind of process was something I spoke of in my own wedding speech – I blamed my parents and grandparents for the fact that I was struggling to find the right person for me. It was said with my tongue in my cheek.
The point I was making is that my parents were together since they were teenagers and my Grandparents also – my grandparents were married for 65 years; they got a telegram from the queen which was read out at their 60th wedding anniversary party. They also died within 2 days of one another and had a joint funeral and whilst I was incredibly sad as a coffin carrier that day, it was a joy to celebrate their lives together.
My templates for an effective relationship came from these people and I always believed that theirs were relationships that were inherently perfect and nothing I had experienced prior to meeting Katie ever measured up to what I believed things should be.
Today, I think I know that we cannot expect perfection (though to me Katie is mostly perfect) but we can learn to understand people better instead of in a way that ensures we learn to love that person and not strive to love something unattainable.
Many people that I encounter professionally and personally have encountered some kind of disappointment within their relationship, often brought about by unrealistic expectations. It leads to a lack of understanding of the other person. This process here today is all about you metaphorically developing your understanding of a particular person that you are in a relationship with.
This hypnosis audio track does have an air of fun about it, so feel free to have a giggle and laughter when you enjoy this session too!
