Hypnosis is a psychological state of consciousness in which the Conscious Mind is suppressed, and the Subconscious Mind is alert and susceptible to new powerful suggestions, hence being able to change beliefs. These new suggestions are uploaded directly to the Subconscious Mind.
So, hypnosis is a tool, it might be part of a therapy, and it can be used to treat or improve any human condition as long as there is the desire, the intent and will to change.
During sessions I will suggest ways, ideas and concepts, and if where is a clear intention to change, beliefs and habits can be changed, and new ways of thinking can be uploaded and implemented.
All resistance is in the conscious mind. The ‘I can not’ and the ‘I will not’ exist only in your conscious mind. Hypnotherapy simply bypasses that and goes to the source, to the subconscious mind, which is straight forward and will only respond to simple ideas.
“It started with something that was done to us by the family or by other children. We have been abandoned, criticized, overprotected, abused, excluded or deprived – we have been hurt in one way or another. The mental trap has become part of us. ”(Jeffrey E. Young)
Our mind has two main parts: the conscious mind (who does the everyday thinking, judging, controlling) and the subconscious mind (is the part of the mind that is not currently in focal awareness).
Hypnotherapy is working with the subconscious mind.
Changing a negative belief means changing the Subconscious Mind, which is not directly accessible when the Conscious Mind is awake. But the Subconscious Mind can be accessed through achieving an altered state which can happen naturally or be accessed through meditation and hypnosis, this is where Hypnotherapy can help.
I found an interesting comparison, hypnotherapy was compared to a Trojan horse. Once the suggestion goes beyond the conscious mind, it will begin to work. In the subconscious mind there are no limitations, preconceptions, self-sabotage.
Hypnotherapy involves the induction of the state of hypnosis, in which the client is in an enhanced state of awareness, concentrating entirely on the hypnotherapist’s voice and suggestions, but it will take an open mind to make the move to hypnotherapy as an alternative to everything you’ve tried so far, and a personalized and professional approach from the therapist you will choose.
Hypnotherapy is successfully used to treat depression, anxiety, addictions, phobias, and it will help you see yourself from a different perspective, to gain confidence, to rebuild yourself, and the list does not end here.
Hypnotherapy will help you relax, physically and mentally and you will find a new vision on your life. There will be things you will let go, there will be people, habits, that will not fit in this new life.
