What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is the art of accessing the subconscious mind and bypassing the conscious mind usually with a facilitator or hypnotherapist.  Self Hypnosis is doing this by yourself. The conscious mind makes judgements about everything. It determines what is right or wrong, one thing or another, such as hot or cold. The subconscious mind makes no judgements. The subconscious mind is where our automatic body system is, keeping our heart beating, our stomach working, and our liver functioning, in other words.

How Does Self Hypnosis Work?

Have you ever driven halfway to work and suddenly realize you don’t remember passing any of the familiar places along the way. Maybe you were thinking about the upcoming weekend activities and felt as if you were there. Amazingly, you weren’t there, you were actually driving your car. The subconscious doesn’t know the difference in something being real or unreal.  This is an example of being hypnotized. During hypnosis you fill the subconscious with positive behavior experiences through affirmations and it thinks the new behavior is real! That’s how we make changes in our lives. That is how hypnosis works.

Here’s an example of how it feels to be hypnotized. Sit comfortably, Close your eyes, relax each part of your body from your toes to your nose. Take a little time with each part…toes, ankles, knees, thighs, hips, waist, chest, neck, mouth, nose, etc. Imagine how it feels to go to a beautiful, special place. It could be the mountains, the beach or the forest, it’s up to you. Look at the surroundings. Feel the temperature of the surroundings. Be aware of colors, sounds. Are people around? Experience this fantastic place for a little while…. Open your eyes now. How did that feel? It felt as though you were really there, didn’t it? Were you there? Nah not really!
