Can you reverse depression with hypnosis? Here is Phoenix Marshalls story of how he got his life back after years of deep depression. Millions of people suffer with depression and doctors normally prescribe medication to control it. While some patients see the desired results many do not. The reality is that anti-depressant medications have mixed results and many side effects. The good thing about hypnosis is that it doesn't require a prescription.
Can You Reverse Depression with Hypnosis?
A good friend of mine (you know who you are) has suggested to me that I share the story of my life as it happened over the course of 2009. Originally they thought I should write a book, however I am not a professional writer…which I’m sure will show in this account. Instead I decided to write my story in a brief, easy to follow format, that people can enjoy for free and hopefully learn a thing or two. This Is My Story...
In May of 2009 my mom was diagnosed with grade four type breast cancer. I won’t pretend to be a doctor but basically this is the most aggressive form of cancer there is. The prognosis wasn’t good.
After a long illness Mom loses her battle with cancer. Phoenix is devestated and loses all his will to survive. Depression settled in to stay, which eventually caused his wife to leave him. Then finally one day , a breakthrough...
A Flash of Inspiration
If I thought I was alone before, now I well and truly was. The days and weeks became a blur as time passed me by. There was more than one occasion where I seriously considered suicide. It was actually while I was in this frame of mind that I found something that helped me. It was at, of all places, Youtube. I was looking for something, anything that might take my mind of my state of like when I found a video which contained a relaxation hypnotherapy session.
It wasn’t much of a video really. Just a still image with audio. But what did I have to lose? I’d already lost everything I’d cared about, half of which was completely my own fault. So I closed my eyes…and something magical began to happen. For the first time in a long time I actually began to feel relaxed. The numb pain that permeated my entire being faded. In under ten minutes I felt…better. I was by no means “back to normal” but I recognised this could at least be the first step.
The next day I awoke with a focus. I now had a tool that I could use to overcome my depression and get my life back on track. What I didn’t have however was much money. I simply couldn’t afford to hire a hypnotherapist at the rates they charge. Again an internet search seemed to provide the answer. There are a number of websites which offer professional hypnosis sessions on MP3s or CDs at much more affordable price.
It took a few tries to figure out which hypnosis videos worked best but eventually Phoenix started to feel better and repair his life.
