Hypnosis & the 7 deadly sins
Is it possible to use hypnosis or psychotherapy to eradicate the 7 deadly sins? read on to find out…
Pride, Greed, Lust, Envy, Gluttony, Wrath and Sloth
Otherwise known as the seven deadly sins or Cardinal sins, so lets look at these a little more closely..
Pride :- an inwardly directed emotion that carries with it a negative connotation,
pride refers to an inflated sense of one’s personal status or accomplishments.
Greed :- an inordinate desire to acquire or possess more than one needs. The degree of
in-ordinance is related to the inability to control the reformulation of “wants”
once desired “needs” are eliminated.
Lust :- an emotion or feeling of intense desire in the body. The lust can take any
form such as the lust for sex or the lust for power.
Envy :- an emotion which “occurs when a person lacks another’s superior quality,
achievement, or possession and either desires it or wishes that the other lacked it”.
Gluttony :- means over-indulgence and over-consumption of food, drink, or wealth items to the
point of extravagance or waste.
Wrath :- more commonly known as anger, a strong uncomfortable and emotional response to a perceived provocation.
Sloth :- Sloth is defined as spiritual or emotional apathy, and being physically and emotionally inactive.
So there is our little definition of the 7 deadly sins, now lets have a look and see where hypnotherapy can help…
Pride :- During a standard session of hypnotherapy, we can tell the subconscious to embrace humility,
after all, we are all the same, we all have defects in one form or another, and understanding
that will make you a better person.
Greed :- At some point in all of our lives we have been guilty of this, wanting more than we really need.
I like to tell my clients to just take a walk, turn off your mobile phone and really look around you.
take in everything, the trees, the air you breathe, the hills, even your possessions… and when you
stand back and really look, you normally find you have all that you need.
Lust :- when truly has lusting after something or someone really worked? its a complete waste of your time
and energy. now passion on the other hand is a very different entity. I tell my clients when I see
lust as part of the problem, to tone it down a little and be passionate about the same thing, for when
people see you are passionate about something, you are more inclined to achieve it.
Envy :- wow, this is a big thing that we see as hypnotherapists, I would say that a major percentage of the
clients that come to my office have envy in their lives somewhere. it doesn’t matter if its of a person
a way of life, the job they didn’t get, their friend is better looking.. this one really drags them down.
by reassuring them of their own self worth, and raising their levels of self confidence and self esteem.
envy can be eliminated quite quickly.
Gluttony :- this one speaks for itself, normally to do with weight loss hypnotherapy, but not always.
ironically weight loss hypnotherapy has fantastic results, and yet so many people don`t even
give it a chance, but when they do, gluttony is a thing of the past.
Wrath :- wrath/anger can sometimes be attributed to peoples lack of self worth, self esteem and self confidence
as we spoke about before when we looked at envy, this is something that reassurance and eliminating triggers can work really well for.
Sloth :- so your get up and go has got up and gone… I hear this time and time again. a good hypnotherapist will
give you your motivation back and will help you get out there and achieve your goals.. after all you cant
do it laying in bed till all hours of the afternoon can you.
So to recap, it would appear that hypnotherapy / psychotherapy can help in one way or another with all of the above.
If you are in the unfortunate circumstance where one of the 7 deadly sins has taken over your life, do yourself a favor
ask around and go see you local expert hypnotherapist or become one yourself 🙂
