Sleep Deprivation a.k.a. Insomnia
The inability to fall asleep or stay asleep at night, resulting in un-refreshing or non-restorative sleep is insomnia. This is a very common problem, if you’re not getting enough sleep, studies show that you will struggle to solve problems, you’ll be more prone to mood swings, you get frustrated more easily, and difficulties with getting motivated. This all eventually leading to greater health concerns.
There may be many factors that can lead to insomnia. Some of these are simple and easy to resolve such as excess noise, an uncomfortable bed, drinking too much caffeine or alcohol before bedtime, People who do shift work, jet lag, or sleeping in a room with an uncomfortable temperature.
If one of these are the cases, what are you waiting for, fix it, it will only benefit you! However, there are 3 major underlying causes of insomnia that are not often dealt with.
Now, most people might resort to taking something before bed but if you’re not like most people and don’t believe in having to take something just to access one of our innate natural states, you’re in luck! There are a few of common techniques to help you get to sleep like:
The 4-7-8 Yogic Breathing – The idea is to count to 4 as you inhale, hold one’s breath for 7 counts, then exhale for 8 counts.
Continuous Focused Relaxation – Slowly scanning the body from head to toe, relaxing each area of the body, eventually this will help you relax to the point where you dose off.
And Hypnotherapy – Deep relaxation hypnosis. With hypnotherapy there are 2 main uses:
a) Simple guided hypnosis – may work well in the short term.
b) Advanced techniques – this is for a long-term solution, identify the cause of poor sleeping and solve it.
The autonomic nervous system and sleep are closely related. We have 2 main divisions to the autonomic nervous system:
The sympathetic – This stimulates the fight or flight response.
The parasympathetic – This stimulates the rest & digest activities.
To have great wonderful night rests, it is important to be in the parasympathetic nervous mode. Unfortunately, most of society is overwhelmed with stress and anxiety, most of the time not even realizing it being conditioned to it so it feels normal. The result? Most people are operating in the sympathetic nervous mode.
Now, for some people their stress and anxieties are consciously known but for others, it can be hidden or buried away in the subconscious, sometimes never identifying it again and resorting to simply take something for the rest of their life. Know that it is never too late to identify and easily deal with the issue, I’d highly recommend clinical hypnotherapy.
What the sympathetic nervous system does, in simple terms, is increase the frequency of your nervous system and causes the energy from your core to move into your limbs and gets you activated and ready to get up to fight or flight. This can happen anytime, mainly when you’re triggered, however, this can also happen while in a deep sleep waking you up many times during the night. This is also a reason for shallow sleeping, because their body wants to make sure they can wake up fast to get up and run or fight.
If you want to solve this naturally, the answers are in your subconscious. One of the best to help you identify and solve this is through clinical hypnotherapy.
Defined as: The ability to relax the conscious mind to the point where our awareness can be used to access our subconscious mind.
Translated scripts and ancient records, show that almost every culture if not every culture has practiced it in some form, including the ancient Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Persians, Chinese and Indians. (Specifically the Egyptians and Greeks had evidence of sleep or dream temples.) Ancient Sanskrit texts describe various levels of a hypnotic state. In the yoga tradition hypnosis can be easily compared to Yoga Nidra.
Hypnosis is nothing new, it is rather a common practice in many, if not all, consciously evolved cultures. Hypnosis is simply called something different in other cultures. Western culture has developed the idea of "hypnosis" through scientific studies.
James Braid an English physician in the early 1800’s coined the term hypnotism.
Hypnosis which was translated from Greek god of sleep Hypnos.
James built up a reputation in the medical community with a conservative approach.
In 1958 the American medical association and the American psychological association recognized hypnotherapy as a valid medical approach. Hypnotherapy is used successfully today to treat pain, PTSD, anxiety, IBS, smoking cessation, eating disorders, easily create new good habits and much much more.
Hypnosis a state of increased concentration and suggestibility while in a deeply relaxed state of consciousness. In this state, the conscious critical mind becomes an observer, and allows direct communication with the Sub-conscious Mind.
In simple form, our consciously engaged mind that we (our society) is so used to becomes synchronized with the rest of our consciousness (subconscious). This allows one to become more aware of what is taking place within the subconscious and have more of an idea of the beliefs and patterns taking place on the subtle level within the subconscious that are causing the "un-preferred" feelings and/or behavioral patterns.
The hypnotherapist is there to guide and assist clients to make their own changes at the deep subconscious level over the course of many sessions needed for effective long lasting change.
This analogy fits in perfectly: The hypnotherapist can guide one to the door but the client is the one that has to walk through the door.
A client may receive great results after one session, however, the intentions of the client MUST be willing to want the change, or if they don't, they may go back to their before patterns. This goes to show that the client is always in control of themselves and what they prefer.
Hypnotherapy is one of the more effective transformational tools out there, only when the client is in harmony with the guidance and suggestions offered by the hypnotherapist, therefore is it most important to build a relationship with the hypnotherapist for the greatest benefit. (If not, the client can reject the suggestions offered.)
All Hypnosis is self-hypnosis. Meaning no one, not even the hypnotherapist, has power over you or anyone.

Interesting facts about hypnosis:
Going into a state of hypnosis is a natural experience that we have many times throughout the day.
Examples: Driving ('I'm here already? Where did that time go').
Watching T.V. (Do you fall asleep to the T.V. at night?, Do you feel it is safe?).
Listening to music (being in the zone).
All your senses are awake and alert while you are in a hypnotic state. You are actually more sensitive and are able to detect the more subtle energies going on around you.
Being hypnotized is not about clucking like a chicken. Hypnosis cannot make someone do something they don’t already want to do in some way.
A person in hypnosis will remain in control of themselves at all times. No one can be hypnotized without their consent, cooperation and willingness no matter what has been claimed in the movie industry.
You only say and do in hypnosis what you would normally say and do in a fully conscious state. If you have a tendency to want to be silly and ridiculous but have stage freight, hypnosis can be that permission slip that you are looking for.
A person in hypnosis will always awaken from hypnosis easily. (Hypnotherapy sessions can be done over zoom video conference. If the internet connection is lost, clients will easily awaken shortly after they realize the connection is lost, which is typically quite a fast response, re-establishing the connection shortly after. It has happened with my own practice and also mentioned from other Hypnotherapists.)
The use of hypnosis gives you the “opportunity” to make changes that last. The hypnotist cannot do the work for you. You must be willing to work with the hypnotist. Yes, it is way more easy to change while working with a Clinical Hypnotherapist.

Conscious Harmonics started out specializing in Anxiety.
I am dedicated to help people with Severe Anxiety reverse the severity of their anxiety to a manageable healthy state.
I have narrowed in my research specifically to anxiety so I can be one of the best in this field when it comes to anxiety, so I am able to deliver greater results for the Unique individual.
With my past history dealing with my own severe anxiety, having it to a point of being frozen in my steps with anxiety, as well as panic attacks. I dedicated to myself to heal and essentially take back my life. I've successfully done so, living each day without experiencing real anxiety. I now experience the healthy amount of anxiety that everyone needs a little bit of, which is just the right amount to stay focused and motivated.
I’ve used hypnosis and personal development techniques to reverse my own Anxiety to a healthy manageable state. These techniques are what I use in my practice along with techniques that I have adapted to newer greater research that is incredibly more efficient than I've had to work with.
Reversing the severity of anxiety is easy when the right information is known.
What is Anxiety?
Anxiety is our body’s natural response to stress. It’s our body’s survival mechanism that gets us to shift our focus onto important things when necessary. For example: The first day of school, going to a job interview, or giving a speech may cause most people to feel fearful and nervous.
Ordinary anxiety is a feeling that comes and goes, but should not interfere with your everyday life.
In the short term, anxiety increases your breathing and heart rate, concentrating blood flow to your brain, where you need it. This very physical response is preparing you to face a situation where you need to be alert and focused.
If your feelings of anxiety are severe, last for longer than six months, or are interfering with your everyday life, you may have an anxiety disorder.
General anxiety symptoms include:
Increased heart rate
Difficulty falling asleep
What is an effective approach for Anxiety?
Many psychologists speculate that severe anxiety is a learned behavior. We condition ourselves over time to react to stressful situations in a particular way. We may even have learned this from our parents at a young age.
When intense anxiety becomes habitual, it becomes Subconscious. Science has determined an effective way to access our subconscious is by slowing down our brainwaves to a Theta brainwave state. With lots of studies and research hypnosis has been shown to be an effective and valid treatment.
A variety of medical associations and healthcare organizations recognize hypnosis as a valid treatment option for anxiety. Including the British Psychological Society, the American Medical Society and the British Medical Society.
Benefits of hypnosis for Anxiety:
• Reduction in Anxiety
• Long lasting Relaxed state
• Improved sleep
• Identify root cause of Anxieties
• Strengthening will power
• Increased Meta Cognition
• Manage a Healthy Anxiety
• Increased sense of self-worth
• Increased confidence
Hypnotherapy allows us to re-pattern and release automatic responses of anxiety while working with the client over a number of sessions. This allows for an effective and efficient way to reduce severity of anxiety to a healthy manageable state. Through hypnosis, it is possible to slow down the process of anxiety so it can be reversed and managed well. As well as when the process is slow, it is easier to study and out what the root cause of the anxiety is. For a the best approach this is about empowering the mind to be a better friend.
