Why does he know so much about hypnosis? Paul Mckenna, Ph.D, is a hypnotist, international best-selling author, and behavior scientist. Named by the Times of London as one of the world's leading and most important gurus alongside Nelson Mandela and the Dali Lama, he is one of the world's bestselling non-fiction authors, selling over 12 million books in the past decade. Over the past 30 years he has helped millions of people to successfully quit smoking, lose weight, overcome insomnia, eliminate stress and increase self-confidence.
In an interview he was asked about how hypnosis can change emotions to help a person fall out of love...
Can you have a patient who comes to you and you make them fall out of love?
Paul McKenna: Yes.
SS: Really? You can really adjust emotions?
Paul McKenna: Oh, god. Yeah. In fact, I've written a book all about it. Because when I was younger, I had my heart broken. And heartbreak is really to do with your future being canceled with somebody. So if you've imagined you'll be with them, and it's all beautiful and one day they go, ‘I'm leaving you.’ Suddenly your future is canceled. And they usually go: ‘And tell you why.’ Because they don't want to feel bad for breaking your heart. So they make you the villain. And they'll go, ‘Well, I'm leaving you because you did this, this, this. So they, they tell you they're leaving, you're going into shock, they go, ‘These are the reasons why’, at that moment, you're very suggestible. So you then go, ‘It’s because I'm a bad person, and they are so wonderful, and maybe I should change’ rather than they just didn't want to live with the fact they’ve broken your heart, so they demonise you. How I help people get over heartbreak is I get them to remember times – How I get people over heartbreak is because we have a natural mechanism within us to get over things. And so when we've decided we want to move on in a relationship, romantic or not, it's usually because the other person's done several things that we see as ‘It doesn't work for me anymore. I’m through.’ And so what a hypnotist does is artificially creates those, gets you to go remember the times when you thought I'm really over it, I don't want to do that, I don't want to be with this person anymore.·And you do that again and again and again in your imagination till bang - you cross a threshold. It's like the last straw that breaks the camel's back.
So if you've had a breakup and are still feeling heartbroken, you might want to try self-hypnosis to rearrange some of the furniture in your head about relationship so that your emotions can finally be done with them.
Additionally, It can be helpful to talk to a friend or family member about your feelings or seeking the help of a therapist for breakups. If you're feeling anxiety there is also online anxiety therapy from licensed counsellors which can help with triggering emotions and reactions you might still have about your ex. There are applications that have meditations and audios to help you sleep, relax, get over stuff. One to consider is the headspace app because they have good content and a free trial so you can checkout their goods and experience what works best for you.
