The Weight of Secrets

The Weight of Secrets

We don’t usually think about secrets having weight. In reality, the weight of secrets you are carrying around with you can be profound.

We all carry secrets, from childhood promises to deep personal truths we keep hidden. As a clinical hypnotherapist, I’ve seen firsthand how these secrets can weigh us down, not just emotionally, but physically as well. The recent 4th of July weekend was a reminder of this, as clients came to me seeking to shed physical weight for the summer, only to uncover the emotional weight of their secrets.

Where are Secrets Stored

Secrets can stir up feelings of shame and guilt, creating a heavy burden that manifests physically. Our subconscious mind stores these secrets, leading to stress and the release of cortisol, the hormone associated with increased appetite and fat storage. This cycle can create a coping mechanism where even minimal eating results in weight gain, as the body tries to protect itself.

Consider the promises we made as children, like a pinky swear to always be friends. As we grow older, these promises become secrets that we keep, often leading to emotional turmoil. Holding onto these secrets can affect our mental health, blood pressure, and overall stress levels, impacting our relationships and daily lives.

I’ve worked with clients who were holding onto secrets for others, adding to their own emotional burden. Realizing and releasing these secrets can be incredibly liberating. For example, I once held onto a secret for years, only to find out my mother already knew. Sharing it brought us closer and freed me from the weight I didn’t realize I was carrying.

Hypnosis to Let Go of Secrets that Weigh you Down

Hypnosis offers a profound state of relaxation, allowing us to express and release suppressed emotions. By letting go of these secrets, we can achieve inner peace and shed both emotional and physical weight. It’s essential to acknowledge and address these hidden burdens, understanding that our body and mind are always working to protect us.

Take a moment to reflect on the secrets you’re holding. Write them down, share them with someone you trust, or simply let them go. Releasing these secrets is not just about unburdening your mind, but also about taking care of your overall health. Remember, being selfish means taking care of yourself first, so you can be there for others.

Start today. Shed the weight of your secrets, and embrace the peace and clarity that comes with being true to yourself.

Can I Hypnotize Myself?

Yes, it’s called self-hypnosis. Hypnotherapy empowers you by providing tools to manage stress in your daily life. You can learn self-hypnosis techniques, enabling you to enter a state of relaxation whenever needed. These techniques can be practiced at home, allowing you to take control of their stress levels independently. My audio recordings can help guide you.

Self-hypnosis is so powerful that I have undergone several dental surgeries without anesthesia or painkillers. You can see me on YouTube having dental surgery with only self-hypnosis.

More Information

I have made audio recordings for self-hypnosis specifically to address certain issues. I recommend the Build Confidence and Stress No More recordings. Download the recording and save it to your device for listening. Find a quiet and comfortable place as you allow hypnosis to happen.
