Learn Mindfulness Effortlessly With Hypnosis

Combining ancient wisdom and 21st century science, Mindfulness is a powerful set of skills to help anyone achieve more out of life, but in particular, individuals suffering from stress, worry, anxiety, chronic pain, addiction recovery, depression and a wide range of long term physical or mental health issues. The word Mindfulness means compassionate and lucid awareness, a sense of knowing what is happening in the external and internal world in the now as it is happening.

Most of us are more used to its opposite: Mindlessness – times when we are not really conscious of what is going on within us, when we find ourselves repeating unhelpful thoughts or behaviours without noticing, eg eating that whole packet of biscuits before realising.

Mindfulness means waking up and checking in to what’s actually happening so that in the moment we can make wise and healthy choices.
 

Essentially, Mindfulness is the awareness that emerges as a by-product of cultivating three related skills:

(a) intentionally paying attention to moment-by moment events as they unfold in the internal and external world

(b) noticing habitual reactions to such events, often characterized by aversion or attachment (commonly resulting in over-thinking)

(c) cultivating the ability to respond to events with full awareness, rather than react, with an attitude of open curiosity and compassion without judgement.

 

Mindfulness Meditation: A Traditional Daily Practice

Mindfulness is traditionally cultivated by the daily practice of meditation in which people learn to pay attention in each moment with full intentionality and with friendly interest.

Meditation is not about clearing or emptying the mind, but rather observing and coming to terms with the minds patterns.

Daily meditation practice allows people to see the way in which certain patterns of mind lead to escalation of emotions. It allows for the ability to see more clearly leading to the ability to create more wholesome outcomes in everyday life.

 

Benefits of Mindfulness

When you practice mindfulness, the benefits you can experience include:

  • Inner calm; increased ease of being
  • More Joy in life
  • Clarity of thought; can see more clearly

  • More compassionate to yourself and to others.
  • Increased ability to ‘go with the flow’ of life

 

Make Mindfulness a Way of Life

Alongside formal Mindfulness Meditation practices, Mindfulness can be weaved into daily living in a less formal way and become a lifestyle by bringing Mindfulness into routine day-to-day activities, such as mindful eating, drinking, making tea, cleaning, washing, cooking, dressing,  allowing everyday activities to become a meditation in themselves. Mindfulness can be practiced more by exploring and developing mindful movement practices, e.g. Yoga, Tai Chi and walking meditations
