060 Is your pilot light always on | Dr David James

Rather than have an on off switch if you would with stress and anxiety…they’re much more like a pilot light on a hot water heater, they’re just constantly going and people are constantly in a state of low grade anxiety
— Dr David James -

Given how prevalent stress and anxiety is today, I was curious about how anxiety could be treated with hypnotherapy in a lasting way. I had the opportunity to speak with Dr David James, licensed therapist, author and speaker who has a passion to see his clients make amazing life changes. David has real life experience of stress having been a police officer in Los Angeles so his perspective on how we can transform our relationship to stress is beyond purely an academic one.

Value Quotes 

“If a person goes through a transformation, during the period they are transforming there is a period of chaos. Which is a sort of breaking down of the old and a building up of the new”

“Medicine fails to take in the wider environment and looks at mind and body as being separate and it looks at the body in separate bits and your body is looked at as a machine”

“If we try to manage symptoms the body will tend to either perpetuate those symptoms and amplify those symptoms or send a different set of symptoms”

“Our emotion tends to get blocked up without us being aware of it”

“Our bodies and our mind are a self-correcting and self-healing system”

“When the body is in a perpetual state of stress there’s a battle going on internally to try to reset to our default setting”

“My body is the vehicle through which I experience life… my body lets me know through the symptom of pain…to get our attention”

“The flow of intelligence happens throughout the body… brain, heart and gut”

“We live in a culture where I think we are increasingly disempowered which is just not useful for us”

“When we grow up we tend to deviate from our true self in order to fit in, to get by, to be liked, to do the right thing all because of trauma”

“Taking time to listen to the gentle nudges of your true self that show up as symptoms in the body”
