Hypnosis is a gentle and natural process of creating an altered state of awareness through deep relaxation and a heightened state of awareness where positive change can be implemented.
You naturally go in and out of hypnosis every single day. It’s the same state of awareness experienced in the moments between being awake and asleep. Daydreaming, prayer, meditation, an athlete in the “zone”, being absorbed in a captivating novel or movie, or consumed by stress and anxiety are altered states of awareness.
Your mind works on two levels - Conscious and Subconscious.
You think, rationalize, analyze, make decisions, and act with your Conscious Mind. The Conscious Mind has a very limited ability to absorb and process every detail of the information you experience and perceive in every moment.
To avert an overload of information, the Subconscious mind stores this information where it can be retrieved by the Conscious Mind.
On the other hand, the capacity of your Subconscious mind is virtually unlimited. As the memory bank which holds everything you experience, it also stores your perceptions and beliefs related to those experiences.
The job of your Subconscious Mind is to ensure you experience life according to the beliefs and thought patterns you have accepted as true. This includes the beliefs imprinted on you by culture, society, and your upbringing. It makes everything you say and do fit a pattern which is consistent with your imprinted, imagined and accurate beliefs.
Hypnotherapy uses guided imagery and relaxation of the body to engage your Subconscious mind to release the unsupportive perceptions, thoughts, feelings, beliefs and behaviors. This allows you to embrace new thoughts, perceptions, and beliefs which positively guide your journey forward to achieve your goals. Utilizing the power of your Subconscious mind, you can create life changes with ease and flow.
While hypnotherapy is not a magic wand, it effectively and efficiently provides substantial support for your journey of change. With hypnosis, you work in partnership with your Subconscious mind to achieve your goals and success.
