hypnosis is an EXTREMELY POWERFUL way to improve your life
The highly focused, yet deeply relaxed state of mind achieved via hypnosis yields many great benefits, digging to the root cause of many of our mental, physical, and psychological problems. Used for centuries, the popularity of hypnosis continues to grow, as modern science embraces its life-transforming potential.
Conscious vs Subconscious
Your mind is the spark for everything you do. It is comprised of two systems: your subconscious and your conscious mind.
The conscious mind, which uses about 12% of our potential, is where we analyze, think, process, and plan. This is where our short-term memory is housed.
The other 88% is the subconscious mind which allows you to manage most of your life on automatic. You don’t have to be consciously aware of everything that's happening or everything you're doing, it just gets handled. Without the subconscious, the conscious mind would be overwhelmed by the large amounts of information processing required to function.
Everything you have ever experienced is recorded in the subconscious mind, it's the place of long-term memory, emotions and feelings, habit patterns, relationship patterns, addictions, creativity, spiritual connections, and intuition. Your subconscious mind holds every experience you've ever had. Let that sink in for a minute. And not only everything you've experienced, but also everything you've seen, heard, felt, induced, believed, and concluded.
Have you ever been driving and reached your destination without remembering the drive? Highway hypnosis is a trance-like mental state brought on by the monotony of the road. In other words, you’re zoning out, and while one part of your brain is still able to operate your car, the other half is in la la land. If you’ve ever driven a stretch of highway and have no memory of driving it, you’ve been in a trance. Sound familiar? Watching a movie, getting so focused on what’s happening that you experience emotions such as anger, sadness, happiness is another example of being in a trance like state.
None of these things are scary or have anything negative associated with them and anyone receiving clinical hypnotherapy is able to come out of hypnosis at any given moment. Any “suggestions” that might be given to you in a relaxed state can easily be rejected and in clinical hypnotherapy any suggestions given are client driven.
Changing The Unchangeable
The most amazing aspect of the subconscious mind is called the power of suggestion. The subconscious mind is willing and able to accept all types of suggestions. This is why advertising is so successful, it is aimed at reaching your subconscious mind, to implant suggestions, change your programming to accept and purchase particular brands. Most individuals are highly un-aware of why they do the things they do and why they feel the way they feel. Hypnotherapy is designed to uncover the underlying reasons in order to bring awareness and positive change. There are subconscious beliefs that we hold about ourselves and the world that influence our behaviors. These beliefs (e.g. I’m not safe), and how we decide to act based on them (I need to hide myself, or I need to be vigilant), are often completely out of our awareness. Based on these beliefs, we have established coping mechanisms that we may have been using for years, but no longer need.
We also may have emotions that seem to come out of nowhere, or our reactions feel totally over the top but we’re not sure why we react so strongly. Accessing the origin of these patterns through talk therapy and our conscious mind can be very difficult. You can’t talk about something you aren’t aware of.
Think of it like a computer. You computer is programmed to behave a certain way, and the same is with human behaviour. You are programming yourself from the minute you are born as each experience contributes to your specific programming. Unwanted behaviours that worked in the past when you were younger are no longer useful but still running in the background. Hypnotherapy can help reprogram your subconscious so that your programs are running the way you need them to today.
Your life experiences combined with what you were told by mentors, parents and others, we may take on such beliefs as “I will never be good enough”, “I have to work hard to live” or “No one will ever love me” or “I am always sick”. These belief programs will continue to run throughout our lives giving us the conscious thoughts and experience of “never good enough”, “hard work for every dime”, rejection, and “ill health”. If we have an experience as a child of falling out of a tree, we may “install” a phobia program that generalizes to “all heights are dangerous”.
When we are “triggered” by others and immediately react in anger, sadness, self condemnation, anxiety etc, the “trigger” input is just like clicking an icon on our computer to start a reactive program learned earlier in our life. Because of these limiting belief programs running in our subconscious mind, we may sabotage our relationships, our health, our prosperity or our spiritual growth. These belief programs just continue to run, feeding our thoughts and creating a blueprint in our life experience congruent with the underlying programs.
Hypnosis can equalize, neutralize and in many cases, completely eliminate unwanted behavior quickly and effectively. I have witnessed results and outcomes achieved with hypnosis that defy human belief.
