hypnotherapy can improve your lifestyle.
Here is how hypnosis works and what it could mean to you in everyday
Hypnosis is an induced
trance state resembling sleep, characterized by heightened susceptibility to
suggestion. The therapist induces
hypnosis by gently guiding you into a relaxed and trance state using imagery of
serenity, calm and peace. When you enter
this state, the conscious mind takes a backseat and the subconscious mind opens
up to suggestion.
How can hypnosis be
beneficial in your life? By opening up your subconscious mind to suggestion,
you will be able to reprogram the subconscious mind to rid yourself of the bad
habits or problems you are experiencing in your daily life due to decisions you
have made or actions you have taken.
It has been
scientifically proven that the subconscious mind controls most of our natural
reactions, how we handle or behave in various situations. When determining how
to react, the subconscious mind will refer to the programming it has received
over the years. Your subconscious will link a certain current situation to a
traumatic or unpleasant experience from your past and your immediate reaction,
be it anger, smoking, overeating, binging, etc., will be based on those past
Many problems can be
effectively and permanently addressed through hypnosis. Hypnotherapy has been proven to be safe, with
no risk of damage or side effects. Only a willing participant can be
hypnotized. You can also hypnotize yourself.
What Hypnosis is NOT
Like many things that have become popularized by celebrity, there are a few misconceptions about self hypnosis that are good to clear up at the start. Before we look at what self hypnosis IS, let’s look at what it is NOT
Self hypnosis doesn’t mean you are allowing someone to control your mind with a soundtrack. No one is able to control our minds. What it does do is help us solve our own problems and answer our own questions. Trust your own strength and power and know your mind isn’t going to let just anyone take over!
Hypnosis isn’t sleeping. While you move in and out of a hypnotic state as you fall asleep or wake up, hypnosis is that time between wakefulness and sleeping. That lovely relaxed state that drifts you between conscious and unconscious thought. You may sometimes fall asleep during or after a meditation, but that is because you relax. Falling asleep during hypnosis often indicates the level of stress you are under – that you are having trouble relaxing on a long term basis, and the hypnosis-induced sleep is simply your body telling you that you are sleep-deprived and need to catch-up on sleep.
