What is Hypnosis ?
Hypnosis is the induction of a state of consciousness in which a person becomes highly responsive to suggestion. Hypnosis is a tool which enables the hypnotist to work with a client to help them achieve their goals by speaking directly with the subconscious mind. Hypnosis is for ordinary people with everyday ordinary issues that are causing them a problem in their life. Hypnosis empowers people to discover and develop strengths in themselves they didn't know they had by accepting personal responsibility for the problem and being active in its resolution. HYPNOSIS WORKS as long as you are active in working on the resolution of the behavioral change.
What to expect when you are in hypnosis?
The client will be hypnotized by what is called an induction. An induction helps the client to reach a state of relaxation, so that the hypnotist can give positive reinforcement and encouragment to the subconscious mind. Hypnosis works on the subconscious mind. The client will be given positive suggestions to help with his or her issue, situation or problem. The client will be very relaxed and open to positive suggestion and will be in total control. The client can decide whether to accept or reject the positive suggestions that the hypnotist is giving at all times while in hypnosis. At any given time, a person in hypnosis is in a position to choose to lighten, deepen, maintain, or end the experience. One's willingness is key to a successful outcome, many of which have been documented.
What are the differences between the conscious and subconscious mind ?
Conscious mind - The part of the mind that allows one to be able to be aware of things. The conscious mind has the ability to analzye things, to make judgements about what is right and wrong.
Subconscious mind - The part of the mind that stores all of the experiences we have had throughout our lives. This is the part of the mind that hypnosis works on primarily. The subconscious mind is not as rigid or as analytical as the conscious mind.
