My office is on a fairly busy road. It can be quite noisy outside and there are often people walking past, chatting to each other or on the phone. When I was thinking of taking on the space, a few people asked me, 'would the busy-ness not bother you? Don't you need a quieter, calmer environment?'
While it is lovely to have peace and quiet, the foundation of my work lies in this: we cannot control what goes on around us, whether that's at home or at work. But we can learn to control what goes on within. You can be in the midst of chaos and bring ourselves to a sense of calm. Maybe you work in retail, a place full of customers, or in a hospital, with no control over how much pressure you're going to be under. You might live in a house of constantly fighting teenagers. Whatever your situation, you can learn to control how YOU choose to feel.
Hypnosis/hypnotherapy is not relaxation. You don't need quiet for it to work. It is true that relaxation can be a lovely side effect - but it is not part of the hypnotherapy itself. The side effect is created by you, in your imagination, and so many clients say they heard the traffic outside but then it faded into the background. They forgot about it. They went within.
The same is said in my weekly meditation group. They've learned to notice the contrast between the busy-ness outside the front door, and the calmness within the room. It can even enhance their meditation.
I grew up in London - there was constant noise. We'd hear and be in the midst of traffic, all day and night, people rushing about, trains, buses, planes overhead. But we don't know any different. We didn't even flinch when police cars sped past numerous times a day. Many of my hypnotherapy colleagues work in far, far noisier offices than mine. But, how I noticed the difference when I moved over here. It actually took a lot to get used to it, as lovely as it is.
Yes - going to a quiet place - be it a retreat, or a beach holiday, or anything like that is wonderful. But you don't have to wait for an opportunity like that to come along in order to clear your head.
When you can control your inner world no matter what is going on around you, you have a real power there. After all, we've found that out more than ever in the last few years.
Take your mind to a place of focus, go within, and notice how your outer reality can change as result....
