Now I don’t know about you, but blushing can be a terribly embarrassing thing. I have a friend who used to blush really easily. Things he usually heard were:
- Are you ok? Your face is really, really red.
- Geez, you’re face is red LIKE A TOMATO!
- You don’t need to be embarrassed about it, just answer the question.
- … and so on.
Now things like these don’t necessarily bolster up confidence. Although they do make you more trustworthy in the eyes of others, as recent research has pointed out. And apparently it’s even a good sign that you’ll make a great lover.
My guess is though that you still want to get rid of your blushing anyway (just like my friend wanted to).
After all, even though it makes you more trustworthy, in many situations it will also give away more information than you want, and sometimes it’ll send out signals that will easily be misinterpreted.
For example, one time I was hanging out with my friend and a couple of other people, including girls. It was a funny evening, and someone made a joke about a guy who used to masturbate in a cup and drink it. (Yes, we were drunken…) Guess what happened? My friends face turned red. And guess what happened then? The girls noticed and they had this kind of… “Wait a second… is he doing this sick stuff?”-look in their eyes. (And although I don’t know with 100% certainty, I’m pretty sure that my friend is not into that at all…)
You see, when you get easily embarrassed and blush then people will often assume that you’re blushing because you’re either guilty of something, or you like something or someone, even though that’s not always why you blush.
Blushing hypnosis works because you get hypnotic suggestions which directly reach your subconscious mind. Because on a conscious level, you already tell yourself often enough that you don’t want to get a red face. Yet, you still do – because blushing simply isn’t under your conscious control.
People who desperately want to stop blushing and get upset and embarrassed the most when they blush are those who will most likely continue blushing often.
But there’s an upside to that too:
Once you begin to become more relaxed about your blushing, you will blush less often, less intensely. It’s kind of a paradox. You know that old saying “you need to stop caring if you want to win really bad”? Well, you need to stop caring if you want to stop blushing.
Blushing hypnosis puts you into a deeply relaxed state of mind and helps you to ease up about social situations where you blush often. In turn, you will notice that you don’t blush so much anymore.
When your attitude about blushing changes, your body will follow. And your social confidence and self-esteem will improve with that. When you sotp blushing you won’t be a smooth operator all of the sudden – but you will be a person with much more personal freedom and less social inhibition.
