Do you want to learn how hypnosis can help you handle jealousy in a relationship? Great! Let us start off by learning what jealousy is all about.
Jealousy is a natural human emotion that implies feeling insecure or threatened by a rival.
The jealous person feels that their relationship is under threat by the rival. It can be applied to the fear of losing someone, such as a romantic partner, or it can be experienced in one’s professional work life.
In order to handle jealousy in a relationship, the best thing to do is to acknowledge and accept it.
The signs of unhealthy jealousy are increased monitoring, frequent suspicion, and having trouble separating thoughts about your partner from those about other people and your relationship.
You feel as if you are constantly being undermined or threatened. You are constantly trying to control things with your partner.
The way that you seem to not be able to focus on anything else but your partner. As soon as you recognize that your feelings are not rational and you are overreacting, then you can take a step back.
You might also need some help from your friends or therapist to learn how to handle jealousy.
What Causes Jealousy?
Some experts believe jealousy can be caused by insecurity, fear of rejection, or feelings of inadequacy.
Others think it may be rooted in a lack of trust, faith, or insecurity.
People who struggle with jealousy may be overly focused on their partner’s happiness and afraid of losing them. They might also have poor self-esteem and believe they need their loved ones to feel good about themselves.
They might also be afraid of being replaced by someone else, or fear that they will lose their loved one’s love.
It is also possible they might be afraid of the feelings that might come with loving someone back, which can make them feel uncomfortable expressing themselves and showing love to their partner.
How Jealousy Evolves Over Time
The earliest evidence of jealousy can be found in cave paintings.
A youthful onnagata is depicted in a picture by Miyagawa Issh catching his elder lover with a love letter from a rival.
Jealousy has been studied and defined by many psychologists and psychiatrists, including Sigmund Freud, Pierre Bourdieu, Margaret Mead, and Daniel Goleman.
Jealousy has been documented in various human cultures around the world at various times and in different forms.
Some psychologists have suggested that there is a universal phenomenon of jealousy that transcends cultural norms.
However, others have suggested that there are many types of jealousy that are specific to diverse cultures.
Jealousy as an emotion has been studied by psychologists, biologists, and psychiatrists for many years.
Jealousy is defined as the “emotional response to the fear of loss of love or affection.”
One form of jealousy is green-eyed monster syndrome, where jealous thoughts and feelings are manifested in someone who suspects a romantic partner is being unfaithful to them.
Another type of jealousy is withholding jealousy, which is usually focused on any behavior that may lead to a loss of resources or status.
A jealous person may also be called a spurned lover.
Some evidence suggests that jealousy arises in part from the brain’s reward system.
The word originated in Latin [jus, juris], meaning right or law, and [juria], which means justice or fairness.
The word “jealousy” means a feeling of intense, possessive, or irrational resentment toward another who has what is judged to be an exclusive attraction or affection, often marked by attempts to undermine the rival’s relationship.

Why Do Men and Women Experience Different Levels of Jealousy?
In terms of temperament and how they react to jealousy, men and women are very different.
For example, men are more jealous when they feel that there is a threat to their relationships, while women become more jealous when they believe that the rival is emotionally gaining their partner’s affection.
A study of jealousy in relationships has shown that this emotion is better rooted in the past and present than it is in the future.
Therefore, people with a greater attachment to the past are more jealous than others.
In general, men are more likely to become jealous if they feel that their partner flirts with other men, while women tend to become more jealous when they feel the woman is flirting with their partner.
When men feel their partner is flirting with other men, they may become more possessive of their partner and not want them to have any friends of the opposite sex.
Despite the many possible outcomes of jealousy, it is a common emotion that influences people in all aspects of their lives.

Tips for Building Better Communication to Help Handle Your Partner’s Level of Jealousy

- Keep your emotions in check so the conversation becomes more productive.
- Take responsibility for what you say or do that makes you feel jealous and apologize when appropriate.

Hypnosis Helps Deal with Handling Jealousy
In most cases of jealousy, the person in question will have some sort of motivation to get rid of their jealousy.
Therefore, if they are not able to do it alone or if they are feeling too ashamed and embarrassed to ask for help, a hypnosis program can be a great tool.
When someone is jealous, it can mean that they are starting to feel bad about themselves and are afraid that their partner will leave them.
Hypnosis is a safe and effective way for people to handle or end jealousy.
It can also help the person with low self-esteem feel better about themselves and be less jealous.
Jealousy can be triggered by an ever-growing fear of losing control over one’s partner, which is why it is often associated with anxiety disorders like obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
In its extreme form, this fear is called “intimate terrorism.”
In these situations, the abuser feels hurt when their partner gets close to someone else, and they have to come up with reasons why they should still be in control.
There are relationships where jealousy is normal or understandable, partners must learn how to express their feelings safely.
It is important to ensure that the person being jealous feels respected and heard, as well as reassured that there is no threat of losing them.
Conclusion: You Can Stop Being Jealous and Out of Control With Hypnosis
There are ways to avoid becoming too jealous in response to what others say or do.
It is good to understand how jealousy works and consider the source of any jealousy that you are feeling.
A partner who enjoys talking about their friends, exes, or romantic life without asking for input from their partner can make them feel jealous. I need help with this myself.
This can lead to a lot of stress and resentment toward the person who is oversharing. There are two ways hypnotherapy can be used to handle jealousy.
First, if your partner is showing behaviors that make you feel jealous, a hypnotherapist program could help them be more aware of his or her actions and discuss what triggers those behaviors.
With hypnotherapy, the person’s self-awareness will increase, and they can stop the negative behavior before it starts.
The second way hypnotherapy can be used is to overcome specific feelings of jealousy in their entirety.
In this case, a hypnotherapist program could work for the person to let go of any feelings of jealousy and replace them with more positive emotions.
This can help a person resolve their jealousy issue in the best possible way.
If you have any suggestions for handling jealousy through hypnotherapy, please share them with me. I will contact you.

We all become jealous of someone at one point; it is after all a natural human emotion. As you rightly pointed out, this usually stems from insecurity and low self-esteem.
My childhood friend is probably one of the most insecure people I know. If you do not personally know her, you would never guess that she’s a very insecure person, even though she looks fabulous and very confident on the outside.
No matter how many times I assured her how a wonderful person she is inside and out, she still thinks she’s not good enough. She thinks she’s ugly and no one will truly love her for what and who she is. I’ve lost count of the relationships she had and it’s her jealousy and possessiveness that’s always been the reason for the breakup.
I don’t know much about hypnosis and I don’t know if this would work. But I badly want to help my friend.
Should my friend agree to try hypnosis, how many sessions should she complete before we see results? Will the effect be long-term or she has to keep going back every time her jealousy gets worse?
I hope you can clarify these to me as it will help me decide if hypnosis is worth trying to manage my friend’s jealousy.
I’m happy to help. It’s unfortunate to acknowledge, but it’s true. I have to admit that envy has also impacted my past relationship. Regarding your friend, you can let her know about hypnotherapy, but as I mentioned in a previous blog post, all hypnosis is self-hypnosis. If she wants the transformation to happen, she must be willing to relax and do the sessions. She needs to play the recording, listen to it, and allow the change to take place.
The goal of hypnosis, I must emphasize, is to access your subconscious mind while you are simply relaxing in a trance-like state. In essence, you are not attempting to modify your behavior, but it will occur when the hypnotherapist makes suggestions to your subconscious mind to change.
Since hypnosis is my love, I have other articles on the subject if you’re interested. I want to offer people the chance to alter their behaviors, no matter what their issues may be.
Great post and very useful; I enjoyed it, and it made me think—detailed explanation of jealousy and the difference between men and women. I have never heard about the green-eyed monster syndrome, and it’s exciting to find out. 5 Tips to better communication to handle your partner’s jealousy is an excellent help. Thank you for sharing this article. Just curious Is hypnosis works better for men or women? Have a great day. Regards. Vlad
Thank you very much. I’m happy you liked the article since I had fun writing it, especially the part about the green-eyed monster. Since hypnosis involves the subconscious mind, which exists in both sexes, it is universally applicable to both. I don’t currently have statistics on who visits hypnotherapy more frequently, but I hope that was helpful. Reaching the subconscious mind, which is more potent than the conscious mind, is the key.
Interesting look at jealousy and all the different levels of it. It can manifest in so many different ways and it is an awful feeling to get rid of. Some types of jealousy even explode into violence.
I never before thought of hypnosis and jealousy together, but I guess since hypnosis helps so many other ailments, jealously is another that is worth sorting through an uninvasive procedure like hypnosis. I think one would just need to find the right person to do it. Referrals from others will go a long way towards finding the right therapist for you. I suppose you could Google too and look for a good one based on reviews?
Hi Michel Maling,
Thank you. Yes, jealousy can cause some really bad actions. This is what prompted me to write about how hypnotherapy can be used to treat it. Nowadays, professional hypnotherapists have websites and affiliates like myself who blog and then attach a link.
Hypnotherapy is no longer only offered in offices. A professional consultation is extremely pricey.
However, they have also released sessions on CDs or MP3s, and these work just as well. I’m overjoyed that this has happened.
You can now receive this session at your home if you choose.
Yes, I have observed that people who display this emotion which is termed ‘jealousy’, have problems with one or the other things – fear of loss, confidence, and trust issues.
Sometimes, when their emotions get too strong their behavior also gets unpredictable and irrational. During such times, one wishes to find a way to help them get out of such negative mind space.
In this article, you have written about how one may use hypnotherapy to handle feelings of jealousy. How can one suggest these tips to someone who may need these without offending them?
I’ve seen people who show the emotion known as “jealousy” struggle, I have been there myself.
You might simply inform them that hypnotherapy is an additional healing method and that there is a natural way to address your issue. If they were told and had better knowledge of the topic, I don’t believe they would be offended. As I provide hypnosis sessions through the link for sleep, confidence, and other purposes, they would love it.
I enjoy it because it relaxes me and I need it so much because I live in NYC where it is so much traffic and noise. Therefore, when I do a session at night, it transports me to a different spiritual realm. The behavior change does work on you while you go about your everyday business. The hypnotherapist is skilled at ensuring that you are completely comfortable. I firmly believe in the power of daily change, and I think it’s worth a try to break negative habits or undesirable conduct.
Thank you very much for this valuable and detailed post about tips to help manage jealousy. This is really a very important post. I think we must talk about our feelings with someone else. It is very important. It relieves the burden on our mind. I will definitely share this post. Keep posting like this.
Hi Pasindu Dimanka,
You’re welcome. I value your advice on this matter.
I am aware that it is a terrible thing to do and that I am regrettably guilty of doing it. I appreciate you sharing the article, and I intend to keep writing on themes that are relevant to the struggles that people face every day.
I’m here to help, and if you need additional details, you can always go to the attached link.
Thank you so much for this post over hypnosis. and jealousy. I struggle with jealousy, but not from present things, but from past things, like some stuff that happened with my girlfriend and her ex. I think this has a name but I can’t remember it. Do you think hyponosis would help with that kind of jealousy?
You’re welcome. You can listen to the audio if you still need to get over a jealousy-related incident from the past. You can check the link for more detailed information, but I can assure you that listening to the sessions will help you calm your emotions and change how you behave.
Jealousy is a very important emotion that needs to be controlled. Many people don’t know how to do that. They need help. I will take a look at the link for hypnotherapy that you have provided. I am really interested in this.
What I am not sure about is how to help people who are not aware or deny that they are jealous. It becomes a huge problem when they think they are right and their partner is doing wrong. It may lead to violence.
Thank you for bringing up this question which is so important in the world we live in.
I’m grateful. Yes, please click the link to learn more about the advantages it offers. I think hypnotherapy is amazing, and I’m grateful that LMN Network helped me find out about it. I observed how people who sought hypnotherapy were able to undergo Past Life Regression, which had a profound impact on their lives. I support natural development and evolution because I believe in growth.
You noted that a person can not be conscious of their jealousy issue. Helping someone who is denying they have a problem is never easy. But there is still a method, I believe, through patience and until they may hit a turning point or even lose the person that they’ll see how they need to modify their conduct. If they don’t identify or admit it, then I don’t see them obtaining help.
You mentioned that they believe they are correct, which is sad if they can’t listen and aren’t open to discussion. Yes, it could result in bad things happening, but I really hope it doesn’t come to that. Instead, I’m hoping that these issues will be resolved naturally and quickly before things spiral out of control.
Thank you for your comment.
I didn’t realize at all that there would be hypnotherapy available to help out with jealousy, that’s amazing! On the other hand, I shouldn’t be surprised, because my husband had hypnotherapy before to train how to stop overeating, as this is the cause of his obesity. It worked like a gastric bypass, whenever he started eating too much food, his stomach would just get sick, I couldn’t believe it!
This effect didn’t last though, would it last for jealousy? thank you!
I thank you. I’m so happy you’re informing me about how he was losing weight through hypnotherapy. Yes, we must give suggestions to our subconscious mind in order for our behavior to change. It is beneficial to repeat the process for three to four weeks. Once you have listened to the tape, it will have served its purpose, but I also believe we should do our bit by being aware of how we are acting.
