Hypnosis is a state of relaxation and when in hypnosis your brain waves alter from the beta pattern of normal waking consciousness to the alpha-theta pattern of sleep and dreaming. What does this really mean and how can this be beneficial to you? It means that you have access to the workings of your subconscious mind.
Broadly speaking, your conscious mind is the logical, rational and problem-solving part of your mind, whereas your subconscious mind is the emotional and imaginative part of your mind. Your conscious mind operates your working memory store (which only holds about 7 chunks of information at any one time) whereas your subconscious contains your long term memory and emotions and controls your nervous system. Needless to say, this is a rather larger and an extremely important portion of your mind.
How many times have you said or thought “I know what I want to do”, or “I know what I should do” and yet continue to do what you are used to doing? How many times have you felt a particular feeling, but not been able to control it? Your subconscious mind works and “feels” automatically and instinctively, whereas your conscious mind “tries” to do things. One can appreciate the accuracy and perceptiveness of the phrase “being in two minds” when you begin to consider the different roles of the conscious and subconscious.
When in hypnosis, your conscious and analytical mind is quietened, allowing access to your subconscious mind, the part which is emotional and creative and imaginative. Thus hypnotic suggestions can be made directly to your subconscious mind, enabling a quick and easy change in automatic thought processes, feelings and behavior. And seeing as your subconscious mind is more creative and imaginative, powerful hypnotic visualization techniques can be utilized as well. You can train your mind to visualize the things which you want to happen in your life, and this is massively important as whatever you imagine you create.
Thus hypnosis is an incredibly powerful tool, allowing access to unconscious thought processes, patterns of behavior and emotions, thereby bringing them within your control. Hypnosis can be used as a powerful and effective therapeutic aid in any area of your life which has a psychological dimension…which, basically, is everything. Everything in life starts with a thought. How you think about something dictates how you feel and how you act. What your mind can perceive, your mind can believe and your mind can achieve.
Hypnosis is effective when used in areas of self improvement, and in overcoming fears and phobias, and in assisting in health and medical areas as well. Hypnosis downloads can be used for changing habits, overcoming anxiety, losing weight, defeating depression or in relieving IBS, to name but a few of its applications. Hypnosis has been used for centuries in many guises, and millions of people have been helped in many different ways.
The power of hypnotic suggestion is absolutely amazing. Without realizing it, we are constantly making suggestions to ourselves every day. We say things like “I can’t do that”, or “I don’t like that” or “I’m shy” to ourselves and these are very powerful suggestions we are making to ourselves which shape what we do, how we feel and how we act. These types of suggestions tend to be automatic, and therefore are produced from within the subconscious mind. With hypnosis, powerful suggestions can be made to your subconscious mind to change these deep rooted patterns of thought and behavior.
Imagine how you might be able to feel if you were to automatically and instinctively make different suggestions to yourself. How would you feel if you thought “I can do that”, “I like that”, “I’m confident”, etc? How might that change the way in which you approach situations and therefore the outcome experienced?
Hypnosis is a natural and normal state, a vehicle, which allows access to your subconscious mind, giving you the power to train your brain to be happy, confident, healthy and well. Hypnosis allows access to your creative subconscious mind, bypassing the critical resistance of the conscious mind (the “but that is how I feel” and all the other “buts” and “I can’t’s” that can be all too familiar to we humans), allowing positive suggestions to be absorbed quickly, easily and effectively.
