How sensitising events affect our life!

Sensitising event

Understanding: “Why we are who we are”
And “Why we do what we do”.

“We become what we creatively believe we are”.

Have you ever asked yourself, “Why am I the way I am?” “What’s made me and makes me the way I am?” “Why do I put on weight, smoke, and drink, take drugs, get stressed, anxious, angry or sad, bite my nails or carry out other negative habits?

Yes, there is a reason behind what we do and have become and it’s called a SENSITISING EVENT. So what is a Sensitising Event?

A Sensitising Event is the starting-point in someone’s life caused by an emotional incident, which brings about a psychological condition such as anxiety, a phobia, insomnia or one of many other mental afflictions.

Sensitising events are also responsible for causing many physiological problems such as paralysis, speech impediments, headaches, psoriasis, bad habits, addictions and the like. They subsequently trigger Defence Mechanisms to protect the mind from mental pain and anguish.

“We become what we creatively believe we are”.

Usually symptoms are traced back to an event early in an individual’s life before the age of twelve and often before the age of five. Usually the event was some personal emotionally charged trauma such as a child being molested or sexually abused, or the death of a family member, to something quite mundane such as a dog barking or child overhearing a passing comment from a parent and misinterpreting its meaning. Sensitising Events are the cause of many psychological and physiological problems in a person’s life that started as a perception that led to an emotional or physical response of some kind.

Sensitising Event Symptoms triggered by erroneous beliefs and fears can be removed under Clinical Hypnosis and replaced with Adult Truth.


  • An authority figure such as a parent, teacher or priest shouts something like “You are a bad person” to a small child and is accepted as the literal truth and carried around as an inner belief that has diverse damaging effects on that persons behaviour for the rest of their life.
  • A young boy’s father lost his voice and the boy thought that he too might lose his voice and as a result started to stammer. The more he worried about it and tried to will it away, the worse it got.
  • A girl of twelve notices her mother blushes and she suddenly thinks and dwells on, “It would be terrible if I blushed too!” As a result of the anxiety, she generates nervous tension which discharges itself by dilating the blood vessels in her face, and so she promptly blushes. When her mother comments on this it confuses her even more. After this, she’s in constant fear of a blushing attack and as a result blushes so often she develops the habit of blushing at the slightest provocation. 
  • A mother is terrified of moths; whenever she sees one fluttering, she acts hysterically and runs out of the room. Her young children see this and develop a fear of moths into adulthood also.
  • A young boy made a fool of himself by making a mistake in class and his class mates laughed at him. Ever since, he’s been secretly afraid of making another mistake resulting in him being in constant fear of being a failure thus causing him considerable anxiety and distress.
