Hypnosis

Hypnotism provides access to the subconscious mind that governs automatic thoughts, feelings and behaviors. These automatic thoughts, feelings and behaviors occur as habits, patterns, routines, and addictions. Within hypnosis, energy and attention becomes focused and directed towards achieving one’s goals.

  • My belief is All Hypnosis Is Self-Hypnosis – in that,
  • It is a state of mind you allow yourself to go into much like meditation,
  • It comes natural to most while others learn how with practice,
  • Within hypnosis your senses are alert and acute; and you’re always in control,
  • A natural state of hypnosis is closest to the time as you’re falling asleep (presleep) and as you awaken,
  • Hypnosis can be achieved through progressive relaxation, and quick & rapid inductions.
Myths and Falsehoods about Hypnosis:
  • You'll involuntarily disclose information or secrets. Untrue, your subconscious mind is self-preserving and protective so you will only share that which you wish.
  • You will carry out anything you’re suggested to do. False, in hypnosis you can accept or reject ideas. Your motivation and determination are wonderfully enhanced to reach your goals.
  • You have no control. Untrue, actually when in hypnosis you have greater focus and better control towards your goals.
  • Hypnosis is mysterious. False, it is natural state of mind – an art and science. We go in and out of trance naturally and often – as an example: daydreaming, or being so keenly focused on something that you don’t even hear someone speaking to you or being in the room.
