Stop Living Life Through A Screen

One of the great things about today’s smartphones and internet-connected world is that we always have a powerful computer and any information we need right at our fingertips, wherever we go. The entirety of human knowledge is accessible from a little device that fits in our pocket. In theory, this access to information and ability to instantly connect with people around the globe should make us more productive and feel more connected. The reality, however, is that far too often, this total information access – and especially social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram – actually has the opposite effect and ends up leaving us feeling drained, unproductive, disconnected, and worst of all worthless.

Stop Scrolling And Start Living

Hypnosis can help you break free from social media and internet addiction so you can live the life you desire. Hypnosis is a powerful process that provides you with the necessary tools to overcome the problems you want to solve so you can make lasting and meaningful changes in your life.

Social Media - Worse Than Cocaine?

Facebook, Twitter, Instagram – as well as nearly every app we use on our smartphones play to the biology of addiction. You get a dopamine hit when someone interacts with you – when they like your post or leave a comment. This creates a feeling that is similar to the euphoria we experience when we fall in love, eat an amazing meal, or win a bet. It is also the same chemical process that is experienced when using addictive drugs, such as cocaine and heroin. This is done by design – not by accident – in order to keep you engaged and using their apps and websites. Elliott Bay Hypnosis can help you overcome internet and social media addictions. Call (206) 929-4082 for a consultation today to learn more about how you can harness the power of hypnosis to make fast, enduring, positive changes in your life.

Help You With Your Dreams

Everyone wants to depict their best selves to the world, and there is nothing inherently wrong with that, but when the good parts are the only parts that are shown, it can be easy to forget that life isn’t simple, and when people only see the sweet and never any of the sour, it generates feelings of shame and inadequacy. “Why isn’t my life that good?” Most people want something. They want to make more money, they want to fall in love, they want an exciting life. But when everyone in their social network presents themselves as having that life, even if it isn’t true, it still causes people to think that they have failed in their own life. And eventually they do, but the reason that they fail is because they want, and they dream, but they never take action to make it happen because they are trapped in the social media addiction cycle.

Protection Of Your Feelings

Social media apps constantly violating users privacy, tracking everything you do online, monitoring every “private” message you send, and keeping you addicted by repeatedly having you chase that euphoric feeling when someone likes your post or leaves a comment, but they are also designed to show you things that will make you upset, angry and depressed. Social media wants to make you angry. These companies want to polarize your feelings. Because the more upset they make you, the bigger the emotional reaction they can get out of you, the more likely you are to keep engaging with their platform, chasing that dopamine fix in order to feel better again. It is a highly exploitive and abusive cycle. 

Free Yourself From Social Media Addiction

They rely on these emotions being spread user to user – a social “virus” if you will. This is especially seen on Facebook and Instagram, where people carefully curate the image of themselves you see. Everyone wants to depict their best selves to the world, and there is nothing inherently wrong with that, but when the good parts are the only parts that are shown, it can be easy to forget that life isn’t simple, and when people only see the sweet and never any of the sour, it generates feelings of shame and inadequacy. “Why isn’t my life that good?” Most people want something. They want to make more money, they want to fall in love, they want an exciting life. But when everyone in their social network presents themselves as having that life, even if it isn’t true, it still causes people to think that they have failed in their own life. And eventually they do, but the reason that they fail is because they want, and they dream, but they never take action to make it happen because they are trapped in the social media addiction cycle. You can’t enjoy life, you can’t make your dreams become reality if you aren’t taking action and letting social media addiction control you. If you take action, if you break free from social media and actually start living – you will win where they lose.

Learn More About Hypnosis, Hypnotherapy, and Frequently Asked Questions

Hypnosis is a powerful state of focused awareness that can be used to uncover and dissolve the root cause of many issues people suffer from every day. Hypnosis allows you to access all the healing resources inherent within the subconscious mind, promoting natural healing from within.  Hypnosis is used to help people discover the subconscious reasons for their symptoms, behaviors, or habits. When they are discovered, certain tools and techniques are used to help release them and relearn a new positive way of thinking subconsciously. This is called hypnotherapy. Hypnosis has been sanctioned and used by the medical community since 1958 to help patients overcome chronic pain, create anesthesia, and heal psychogenic illnesses.

Hypnosis works by achieving a level of focused awareness while at the same time bypassing the analytical aspect of the mind. Another way to describe the analytical aspect of the mind is that it is a comparing mechanism. When new information is introduced to the mind, the comparing mechanism compares the new information to what it already believes is either true or false. This is a protective aspect of our mind. This is why changing habits by willpower alone is so difficult – we often already believe we cannot change, so thinking about making the change happen (using willpower alone) is ineffective. Hypnosis is powerful because with focused awareness, the analytical aspect of the mind is bypassed, and new, healthy, and beneficial suggestions can be made directly into the subconscious, without the comparing mechanism rejecting these new beliefs. So, the change we want to achieve in our life is accepted by the subconscious mind as true, and we see results quickly.

Hypnosis is safe – it’s a perfectly normal and common state of mind we go into naturally every day. You enter hypnosis regularly when daydreaming, watching a good movie, or reading a book. During these activities you remain consciously aware and in complete control, just as you do when a professional hypnotherapist assists you into entering a state of hypnosis.

Hypnotherapy is the applied use of hypnosis. Hypnosis is used to help people discover the subconscious reasons for their symptoms, behaviors, or habits. When they are discovered, certain tools and techniques are used to help release them and relearn a new positive way of thinking subconsciously. This is called hypnotherapy. 

Yes of course! You’ve already been hypnotized anytime you’ve watched an enjoyable movie, or read a good book. Hypnosis is a normal and natural state of mind that everyone has already experienced. Actually, it’s such a normal state of mind that most people don’t realize they are hypnotized.  All you need to do to go into a state of hypnosis when coming into Elliott Bay Hypnosis is be willing and able to follow gentle instructions for reaching a state of focused awareness.
