Hypnosis and hanging.
As a hypnotherapist I am constantly trying new things on myself and discovered something interesting while hanging this morning.
As I relaxed into my heavy phase of the session I consciously began to imagine my ligaments turning to warm toffee and stretching way longer than usual. I held this view for a few minutes and kept the weight swinging as I stood and gradually I felt the tissues across the lower part of my abdomen just let go and I felt the stretch reach up higher than I’ve ever felt before.
I only held this view for a few minutes while doing the 10 pound standing part of the session, but I cans till feel the added stretch from the tissues relaxing.
We hold ourselves in so much unconscious tension that I think this is partly how our ligaments resist weights so readily.
I am going to continue to practice visualizing letting go and see what happens.
Began December 2009 at 5 7/8" length and 5" girth.
As of December 5th 2012 7 3/8" BPEL and 6 1/8" base girth.
Going for the magic 8"x6"
