Definition of Destructive Behavior

Each system of ethics, whether religious or civil, defines destructive behavior differently. Some systems have a set of laws established by heavenly authority or by legislature. Destructive behavior is to disobey the law. Others define destructive actions as those that harm others or harm oneself. Knowing what is harmful is difficult, however. The same action may be detrimental to some and helpful to others. Even when directed at the same person, it may be damaging in one situation and not in another. For instance, shouting harsh words to someone may either hurt his or her feelings or rouse the person from laziness.

Resolving to Refrain from Destructive Behavior

The next step is to determine to rid ourselves of this destructive habit, for the sake of both our relative and others we may encounter. We must also eliminate it for our own development. Focusing on our older relative, we give our word that we shall try our best not to repeat our inconsiderate behavior either with the person or with anyone else. We do the same even if the person in our example has already passed away. To strengthen our resolve, we reaffirm the direction in which we are trying to go in our lives. We are trying to regard and treat everyone with balanced sensitivity. To clear any residual thoughts or emotions about the incident before considering another example of our destructive behavior, we reaffirm, I am not going to make up stories about myself, I accept myself as I am. At first, we may choose only a light example for each category of destructive behavior, especially if we are prone to guilt and low self-esteem. Gradually, we may choose more than one person for...

Dissolving Disturbing Emotions into Underlying Deep Awareness

(2) Next, we choose someone who mistreated us. With low self-esteem, we blamed ourselves and silently redirected our anger inwardly. Later, our suppressed feelings might have manifested in hysterical crying or self-destructive behavior. The person could not understand our conduct and felt helpless and dismayed. He or she may even have lashed out and told us to stop being stupid. We regret the frustration and grief that our internalized rage has caused us both. Relaxing our self-recriminating anger, we try to let go of our dualistic feeling of a seemingly concrete guilty me and a seemingly concrete you who might abandon me if I said anything about the incident. Deconstructing like this, we find mirror-like awareness of what happened between us, and reality awareness that it was like this and not like that. The calmness and clarity this discovery grants allows us to stop dwelling on blame and to find a solution.

Depression Pain And Ptsd

Aborted neuromuscular fight-or-flight responses and extended immobility or freezing responses related to unresolved posttraumatic stress can cause sustained rigidity in the body, eventually resulting in chronic discomfort and pain (Levine, 1997). Excessive dysregulation of the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems, a by-product of chronic posttraumatic stress, can also lead to profound instability of mood. Such effects can be found in people suffering chronic pain, bipolar disorder, major depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders, thus illustrating yet another linkage between the syndromes of chronic pain, major depression, and PTSD.

Five Decisions for Combining Warmth with Understanding

If we wish to practice more elaborately, we may expand as in the previous exercise on refraining from destructive behavior. After remembering an incident in which someone acted toward us in each of the five insensitive ways, we recall an occasion when we acted similarly toward someone else. Admitting that it was mistaken and feeling regret, we reaffirm our determination to be free of the syndrome. We then give our pledge to the person involved that we shall try our best not to repeat it.

Awareness of Equalities

We also need to direct our awareness of equalities to seeing patterns in our own and others' destructive behavior. If we cannot recognize the patterns of disturbing attitudes that fuel our recurring emotional turmoil, we cannot begin to respond sensitively with appropriate steps to becoming more balanced.

The Staff of Aescepulus

Manic depression is common and occurs when the right and left energies are uncontrolled through the presence in their Aura of an Entity or energy blockage. When a person is stuck on the right, the male manic side, then the body becomes wiry and thin and heart attacks become prevalent. When stuck on the left, the female depressive side the person becomes lethargic and fat and easily depressed. The physical base of these energies is the perineum in the male and the vulva in the female. Their other control point is the left and right nostrils. Blocked nostrils and mucus show a blockage of these energies.

The Need for Ethics

Responding to others or to ourselves with balanced sensitivity entails refraining from destructive, harmful behavior and engaging in constructive, helpful acts. Restraint from destructive behavior sets the foundation. For example, if we have not established a consistent pattern of curbing ourselves from making cruel, sarcastic remarks, others will not trust us with their personal problems. This will happen even if we notice their moods and show concern. Similarly, using an artificial sweetener in our coffee is of little benefit if we continue to eat rich cakes. Therefore, we need to apply our natural ability for self-control to keeping ethical ground rules for our interactions.


The primary purposes of this chapter are twofold first, to highlight some of what we already know about the nature of major depression (i.e., major depressive disorder) and what works in its treatment and, second, to draw attention to how clinical hypnosis can further enhance aspects of the treatment process. This chapter considers hypnosis as part of a psychotherapy regimen for major depression only, and does not address either medication issues or other forms of depression (such as bipolar disorder, depressed phase), although concepts and techniques
