Forgetting Lost Love

Q: I just gave my heart to the one person who I could ever fully love. We have been on and off for the past 6 years, and then he breaks up with me again. Everyone wants me to move on, but I can’t. I gave him my everything, and I want to start over. So I’m asking the question if a hypnosis will erase the memories I had with him the past 6 years?
   
A: There are some NLP tricks that might help you. When you have a memory that is particularly bothersome, imagine smashing the memory with a sledgehammer until it shatters into a zillion tiny pieces. If the memory involves sound, imagine turning down the volume of it until you can no longer hear it. Or you could mask it with a louder sound. Such tactics can destroy a memory to the point where you might even experience some amnesia about them.Other tactics can help minimize the emotions of a memory without destroying the memory. These include: Imagine turning a color memory to black and white. Make the image smaller. Warp it as if you’re looking at it in a funhouse mirror. If you “see” the image in front of you, move it to the side or behind you.

This is all MENTAL work—there’s no need for an actual sledgehammer or blasting the neighborhood with your radio. Altering your memories like this can be amazingly effective. A hypnotherapist can help you use these techniques in or out of hypnosis. Since you have 6 years of memories, it might take some time to work through them all. These techniques can be used as each memory comes up. Give these techniques a try and see how it goes.

NLP stands for Neuro Linguistic Programming. The theories of NLP were developed by Richard Bandler and John Grinder.
