What is hypnosis

 

Hypnosis is a state of consciousness that enables you to create empowering change and change your life. There are many misconceptions about what hypnosis is so I thought it may be useful to write some information on it.

If you were to imagine that there are two minds that make up the whole. The outer mind which is called the conscious mind and the inner mind which is commonly called the subconscious mind.

The conscious mind is the part of your brain that is analytical sequential and focuses in the given moment. The subconscious is the larger part that stores all the behaviours, patterns, behaviours values and beliefs of the person.

You will learn something like a handshake consciously, and then once you have learnt the behaviour you just do the behaviour without really having to do think about it. 

The same can be said for far more complicated behaviours such as driving a car you learn to do something consciously and then the meanings are locked away behind a barrier that is your consciousness.

The barrier to your subconscious is the rationalising and analytical interference that is your conscious mind, asking questions, generalising and checking, if we want to learn something, the easiest way is to be open to the information, hypnosis allows us to be more open to learning how to let go of our problems and install the new programs.

Hypnosis is a way of relaxing that barrier to enable us to be more open to positive change. You still hear all that is around you and you reactions are 100% under you will and command it is just that you are in a relaxed state.

This is similar to reading a book and being engrossed in it or watching a movie and being lost in it. Your subconscious continues to hear all that needs to be heard it is just that your mind is not subject to the same degree of rational conscious processing allowing your mind to be more open to the suggestions that are said. Once the altered state of consciousness is induced you will often be told stories, or a number of countdown techniques may be employed to help you relax. This process of relaxation is to enable the process of facilitating change easier and faster, by opening up those barriers to the inner wisdom of your mind. As  you are more relaxed the barriers to overanalyse or resist letting go of the problems is eased allowing you to let go of old problems patterns behaviours and create positive change.

It is vitally important to remember that this is a process and the transformation are based on the clarity of the coach understanding the problem, and using one of many cutting edge techniques to help you. Hypnosis is the doorway for transformation and is very powerful, but once you open the door, it is far more effective if an expert is guiding you through it and helping you to the other side. Hypnosis is process not a object, the level of skill of the therapist is crucial to the well formed outcome of the sessions.
