We’ve all seen hypnosis portrayed in movies, or on stage, as some type of magical phenomenon that puts someone else under the hypnotist’s control. Well, this isn’t that! The fact is, nobody can be put under a hypnotists control. These folks, while entertaining, are mostly charlatans. Now that that’s out of the way, let’s discuss what hypnosis is, and how it can help you in a variety of ways.
HYPNOSIS IN A NUTSHELL
Hypnosis is simply a state of mind that anyone can access – Ever driven on a road and wondered where the last 20 minutes went? Yup. Hypnotic state.
Hypnosis is the experience of having focused attention and/or concentration – Ever have a practice, class, or conversation seem like it just started, and two hours have gone by? Well, that is what we call focus!
Hypnosis is a naturally occurring mind state. It can’t be done to you.
Entering a hypnotic state can be accomplished alone. Known as self-hypnosis, this mind state can be accessed at most any time as long as you know how to do it.
Hypnosis can also be induced by a trained hypno-therapist. The role of this person is to assist you in getting the process going.
THE HYPNOTIC PROCESS IS SIMPLE AND STRAIGHTFORWARD
If wanted or desired, your hypnotherapist utilizes meaningful cue words, metaphors, imagery, and strategies designed to confuse your conscious mind with the goal of getting it out of the way so that your internal knowing can be accessed and communicated with.
During this process you are always aware and in control.
HYPNOSIS HELPS WITH:
Unlocking performance potential
Learning and memory
Accessing creative solutions to presenting challenges
Recovery (injury and training sessions)
Assisting with the neuroplasticity of your brain
Would it be alright with you to manifest positive change in any of these areas?
