Stress is held in your body and it remembers

May 9th, 2018

How did that calm person who always copes suddenly, out of the blue became massively stressed and have a breakdown? Nothing special happened.

The thing is that stress keeps adding up, like continually blowing up a balloon until it reaches breaking point and a lot of people are like swans gliding apparently serenely along. What you don’t see is how hard they may be paddling under water, especially when the currents are strong or the water turbulent.

The problem with that hidden turbulence is that stress is held in your body and your body remembers. When you reach your limit you get a reaction… usually not one you wanted.

Your reaction may be serious health problems and many serene “problem free” people suddenly develop obesity, autoimmune diseases, cancer or other illnesses. Or you may be like that person who suddenly “broke out” of their supposedly calm life and did something strange and unexpected, possibly dangerous. You may find yourself clinging to smoking, alcohol and/or drugs and find it harder than others to quit.

In many cases the problem was years before and has been suppressed. You may not even remember it. It may even be something seemingly harmless like a toddler being sent to stay with an aunt while Mum was in hospital, leaving the toddler with severe separation anxiety.

When animals are traumatised and freeze, they have a wonderful ability to release all the negative energy of the trauma with massive trembling and if they are prevented from doing this, they die. As humans we prevent this release and retain the trauma until it breaks out, makes us ill or kills us.

Like many of my clients, I was a swan, a successful scientist, business woman winning awards but with long term hidden trauma plus ongoing everyday stress that forced me stop and address it when I developed breast cancer several years ago (all gone now). Healing that was a journey that resulted in my being calm underneath as well as on the surface

That is when I decided to get treatment for trauma and also to do additional study as a clinical hypnotherapist then add special hypnotherapy for trauma on to my background as a neuro-physiologist and a cell biologist.

If you, or someone you know has this turbulence underneath, I can help. Just get it sorted! And I do it differently… without taking you back over the problems. If you went there once you don’t need to go there again. I use the theatre of your imagination to empower you to get rid of the problem.

The thing is that your mind can either kill you or it can heal you. Hypnosis can let you heal.

Have you thought through what is important?

I am in the process of moving house and sorting through what is important. My old house is sold and settlement and moving day is on October 26th. The new place is a unit and much smaller so over 50% of my belongings need to go.

In many ways this exciting and it will be a relief to have a smaller house with less maintenance, gardening and cleaning. In other ways there are decisions to be made and grief associated with parting with some long time possessions.

This is why stress makes you put on weight

When early humans lived in caves there were two main threats in their lives – cold and starvation. Our bodies evolved to cope with this by storing fat to feed and insulate us and this is why stress makes you put on weight

The storage of food was even more important for women so they could feed their children.

Unfortunately our metabolism has not evolved to keep up with our modern life and our unconscious mind’s main job is to manage our metabolism so that it keeps us safe.

Spring will make you reflect on your weight name

Its spring and this time of year will make you reflect on your weight as you shed your winter woollies and try to dress for warmer weather.

Are you one of the many who added a few extra kilos of insulation during winter? So what do you do now?

Diets do not work… they make your problem worse because your body believes that you are starving and makes sure it stores more fat after the diet finishes in case there is another famine. Repeated diets simply increase your weight over time as you...
