Feel Powerful…But Just Enough

Experiments show that simple psychological preparations make a big difference. By Cindi May for Scientific American. Full article by clicking here.

Extracts from article: “…new research suggests that priming your powerful side is the way to go. A sense of power, it seems, increases your appeal both on paper and in person to those making hiring decisions….It may thus be wise to conjure a memory of a time when you were in charge and felt powerful as you prepare for your next interview…” This is an example of some of the work which can be done through hypnotherapy: recalling a positive/powerful experience from a hypnotic state. Learning to deconstruct an experience and analyse it in terms of thoughts, emotions and behaviour can help us understand more clearly what it was, and how it was which made us feel the way we did in that occasion. This simplifies the effort of reproducing such state whenever we need or we want to.

“…Before you adopt personal power as your universal inner mantra, however, know that there are perils and pitfalls to power…” Read this interesting article at Scientific American to find out more about those perils and pitfalls of experiencing power.

Hypnotherapy offers us techniques which encourage the regular monitoring of our actions, feelings and beliefs. This allows us to re evaluate them periodically and modify them according to our present needs, our desires and those of the world around us.
