Most cultures and certainly western civilization has tended to raise their children in ways that stress performance. It is often done in a critical fashion as if there is no room for mistakes and the idea that people should be perfect. Intellectually everyone knows this is impossible, but on a feeling level and in practice perfection is expected. This is part of the guiding principles of a dysfunctional family. Therefore we all tend to have a huge critical parent made up of remembered statements that are quite negative. When people grow up these tapes run automatically sapping our strength and making us very negative in general and towards ourselves even more. Hypnosis and this hypnosis CD for negativity can help. Old tapes that lodge in the subconscious simply can not be erased by conscious talk therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy alone. The subconscious has to be addressed and hypnosis does this better than almost any psychological therapy out there. The suggestions in this hypnosis CD to stop negative thinking and self-talk uses suggestions to turn those negative messages into positive ones and it is extremely effective. This hypnosis CD to combat and stop negative thinking uses beach guided imagery with background music. This hypnosis script is by Jef Gazley, M.S., LMFT, who is a certified clinical hypnotherapist.
