Gaining Mastery Over Your Emotions

Something happened yesterday which prompted the writing of this brief article. I experienced a very real sense of frustration relating to dealing with something which I could not control. I nearly reached a total melt-down point yesterday after five days of intermittent internet access whilst trying to deal with the testing of a new website.

If you can imagine the scenario; there are some parties to the job based in Serbia, some in the UK and others in the USA. We rely upon Skype, which is internet based, to communicate, and the new website, needless to say cannot be tested without being online. We’re also running behind schedule, although this wasn’t particularly bothering me, I didn’t think; I learned a long time ago that where websites are concerned they get finished when they get finished.

It was interesting however to note that this whole scenario over the last few days finally triggered off emotions which I thought had dissolved. My brain had evidently stored and saved a whole host of experiences which made a good “pattern match” with “computer-internet-website building-problems” and they all came flooding back to me, along with a lot of really frustrating emotion. The current experience instinctively triggered off these stored emotions and wham! Melt-down (well, almost).

This is a great example of how our minds work. There are many occasions when you think you have come to terms with something fully, but all you have done is put it to the back of your mind. And there those emotions sit, waiting patiently, until you happen to confront a similar type of experience once more, and it is as if a dam has been breached and it all comes flooding back to you.

This ability of your mind to store emotional experiences and then release them in response to a familiar trigger is in fact a defense mechanism. Your mind has been put on “high alert” as a result of your emotional reactions in the past and certain circumstances have been “red flagged” as threatening to your health and equilibrium.

This brain mechanism was essential when the threat was a bear or a tiger which might be licking his lips as he contemplates his dinner. But in the modern day, the types of threat have changed and this automatic instinct to “red flag” can sometimes be more of a hindrance than an asset.

If you want to really resolve underlying emotional issues, you have to do more than just put them to the back of your mind. You have to find a way in which to change the emotional attachment to the experiences. An adaptation of the NLP fast phobia cure will do exactly this. It really doesn’t take long at all to drain the water from these muddy emotional pools and replace with fresh, clear and sparkling water…so long as you use hypnosis.

Hypnosis is a state of relaxation which allows you to take a step back and to access the inner workings of your mind. With hypnosis you gain access to your subconscious mind and you can gain mastery over emotions which would otherwise be free to flood your mind in response to the slightest trigger.
