What is Hypnosis

What is HypnosisHypnosis is a state of consciousness one enters and leaves naturally all the time during your day-to day experiences. It feels very much like day dreaming i.e., the state between sleeping and waking. Hypnosis is a guided journey. In this state of relaxation you are more open to suggestions. In this state (also called alpha state) your brain wave vibration rate slows down, giving you access to your Subconscious Mind. While your Conscious Mind is still completely aware of what is going on the whole time, in this relaxed state of mind, your subconscious mind has the ability to accept information given to it by the hypnotist.

Hypnosis is a valuable tool for self-empowerment and continuous personal growth.

Hypnosis is a state of heightened suggestibility. We are all influenced by suggestions. Hypnosis uses this natural human process to change negative patterns into positive patterns of behavior. There is nothing mysterious about hypnosis.

People sometimes shy away from hypnosis but often this is because they misunderstand what it actually is. Much of the misunderstanding of hypnosis comes from stage hypnosis and the way that it is portrayed in the media.

In reality hypnosis works very simply. In a professional one-to-one situation hypnosis is achieved by using various techniques to guide the client in to deeper levels of relaxation. It is often a gentle progression from waking consciousness into a deep level of mental and physical relaxation, rather than a flashy click of the fingers that you might see on TV or in stage shows.

What to Expect

what to expect during a hypnosis sessionWhen you are in a hypnotic state you will still be aware of your surroundings even as you drift into deeper states. It can sometimes feel as though very little is happening and that you can open your eyes at any time and be wide-awake. This is because being under hypnosis doesn’t feel unusual. It doesn’t create a special feeling and so people often don’t realize when they are under hypnosis.

Being in an altered state of consciousness or in a hypnotic trance is actually something you will experience naturally many times in your life. For example, just before you fall asleep each night and before you are fully awake in the morning you are in a trance state that everyone on the planet experiences. These morning and evening trance states are called the hypnogogic and hypnopompic states. Daydreaming is another naturally occurring trance state that is familiar to all of us and one that is similar to being in a light state of hypnosis.

How Hypnosis Can Benefit You

When you are in a deep level of mental and physical relaxation, you become receptive to accepting positive suggestions, for which is the key to using hypnosis as a therapeutic tool.

We spend most of our time in our conscious thoughts and only sporadically tap into our unconscious mind when we daydream or get creative ideas. The only other time we spend in our unconscious thoughts is when we are sleeping, when our conscious mind has switched off. Learning to connect with your deep unconscious mind through hypnosis can help you in so many different ways to achieve your goals and overcome any challenges.
