What is Hypnosis?
Sometimes People have misconceptions about what hypnosis is based on movies, TV, stage shows, and past experiences with hypnosis so before I tell you what hypnosis is, let me tell you what it isn’t.
When you are in a hypnotic trance you will not feel hypnotized, but you can expect to feel very relaxed. You will not be a zombie; in fact you will be in total control. You will not spill all of your secrets. And. you will not get stuck in a trance.
So if all that is what hypnosis isn’t, then what is hypnosis, and why does it work so well.
Hypnosis is basically a way to to influence unconscious processes.
Hypnosis is the utilization of the trance state to communicate directly with the unconscious mind. We are always in some form of trance. Some of the most common forms of trance are when we are watching a movie or a TV show. In those states we choose to turn off our critical minds and just “zone out”. We suspend our disbelief and allow the information coming in to take us on an emotional ride, and in those states we are highly suggestible.
The people who make commercials know all about this. They tell a short story that elicits an emotional response and then they brand it, and tell us to buy their product.
This does not mean that hypnosis and the trance state are bad. It simply means that there is a trance state and you can choose to consciously use hypnosis to de-program and re-program your own unconscious mind.
You can think of hypnosis like hacking the human bio-computer. It is a fast and effective way to upgrade your mind’s operating system and clear blocks to your own success.
Through guided visualization and focused imagination you can enter the trance state and use selective attention to relieve your tension and then give yourself direct suggestions to create the identity and reality you desire.
Anyone can be hypnotized as long as you can follow directions. You simply listen and then allow yourself to make the choice to do what I suggest because deep down you know that it is good for you.
When you are in touch with your unconscious mind and when you understand and experience the power of words you can use them to change the way you think about the way you think, in order to change the way you feel about the way you feel. For real.
