Hypnosis is a natural state of selective, focused attention. It is 100% normal yet remains one of the most fascinating phenomena of the human mind. Our ability to enter this unique state of consciousness opens the door to countless possibilities for self-exploration, healing and change.
When we enter into the state of hypnosis we can use our thoughts, talents and experiences in ways not usually available to us. With the help of a trained professional, we can develop innate, individual abilities that enable making desired changes in our thoughts, feelings and behaviors possible. The focused state of hypnosis allows changes to intentionally be made “automatically.” These are changes that we could not consciously make by ourselves under normal circumstances.
Whatever your goals, hypnosis can help you achieve them from wherever you are. Many people don’t realize the power that their subconscious mind has over their lives. The causes of so many “bad habits” and phobias are rooted in memories or perceptions that may be forgotten by the conscious mind but retained in the subconscious. Hypnosis helps to access the subconscious mind and affect the desired changes easier and faster.
Unfortunately, many people refuse to consider hypnosis because of their fears and misconceptions. They may believe the hypnotist will control them and make them tell secrets, or be made to do ridiculous things. These fears and misconceptions are completely unfounded. The misconceptions about the process might be the result of watching inaccurate portrayals of hypnosis sessions on TV and in movies. In true, honest hypnosis, the client is always in control, and in fact, is more aware of what is happening while in the hypnotic state. Hypnosis is completely safe and the person being hypnotized is always aware, in control and can remember everything that was said while they were under hypnosis.
Although hypnosis is not a cure-all and does require some assistance and willingness from you, it can help improve almost every area of your life, such as career, love, finances, emotional healing, self confidence, general self help, bad habits, phobias and other things that may be holding you back in life. The most common reasons for visiting a hypnotist are losing weight, stopping bad habits, and managing stress.
Many overweight people who fail with diet programs turn to hypnosis as a safe and reliable alternative. This is because they have not been able to change their cravings, habits, desires and other emotional issues that affect weight loss. Through hypnosis, they can become successful by changing their emotional and habitual interactions with food, which then supports any healthy diet and exercise program they choose.
Phobias such as the fears of water, flying, driving and claustrophobia are easily eased with the same technique, and can frequently be overcome.
Every problem has a cause, and when you eliminate the cause from the subconscious mind, the problem disappears. What the mind can conceive the mind will achieve–through action. Wellness begins in the mind!
