WHAT IS HYPNOSIS?
What comes to your mnd when you hear the word hypnosis?
Does the word conjure up images of people acting silly? Perhaps it sounds mysterious or even frightening. In fact, hypnosis is a natural function of the mind. We all go in and out of hypnotic states thousands of times. If you have ever found yourself day-dreaming, losing track of time, or even forgetting your surroundings for a while, you were in a hypnotic state.
A trained hypnotherapist uses this state to produce relaxation and to quieten the conscious mind so that we may access the suggestible subconscious. This tool helps to unleash the power of your mind to accomplish your goalsand to achieve the success in life you desire.
Willpower alone is a highly unreliable device that forces a person to deprive himself or herself of something desired. With hypnosis, willpower becomes unnecessary. Guided imagery in a hypnotic state has helped people to think thin and be thin… to think of themselves as non-smokers and … all without drugs or special diets.
How Does It Work?
The subconscious mind receives and retains, neither accepting nor rejecting, all the messages we receive from our backgrounds, whether genetic, social, religious or experiential, plus all the conflicts (little or big) that enter our lives daily. When for whatever reason the conscious mind becomes overloaded, the subconscious prepares us for what is considered appropriate action. However the subconscious mind does not analyze, as does the conscious mine, but accepts the messages in the literal sense.
In essence, hypnosis is a means of communication between the conscious and the subconscious mind. Many human problems, habits, stresses, anxieties, attitudes or apparent deficiencies can be traced to interpretations by the subconscious mind which, when these erroneous interpretations are understood by the conscious mind, specific problems can be reduced or resolved.
The subconscious is also the seat of all memory. Traumatic events can be buried or suppressed in the subconscious. a major benefit of hypnotherapy is its ability to uncover and bring into the light of understanding the buried information or experience which may be the cause of a troublesome disorder.
