What is Hypnosis?

Do you sometimes feel like no matter how positive your thinking is or how hard you try to change, you just cannot do it?

It’s frustrating, especially when you are really committed to creating change!

If you cannot shake that nagging feeling that the lever for change is somehow just out of your reach, there’s a good explanation for why.

Only 5% of your daily decisions are made consciously and 95% happens subconsciously. Your mind consists of your consciousness, where current thinking takes place and your subconscious controls your emotions and stores memories and behavioral patterns.

And just like your computer, there’s a natural firewall that separates your conscious and subconscious mind. It’s called the critical faculty.

Your critical faculty is responsible for blocking new ideas or suggestions that contradict what you already have learned or already know, even if these new ideas can be helpful to you.

For example:

  • You want to quit unproductive habits
  • You want to change your limiting beliefs
  • You want to lose weight
  • You want to change your eating routine
  • You want to strengthen your own motivation and commitment

This explains why no amount of positive thinking is an effective method of bypassing this firewall to create new habits or behaviours.

The good news is there’s a simple solution available where we can work together to bypass your critical faculty using  hypnosis. Using this simple technique easily lowers your body’s natural protective layer of your subconscious and allows new suggestions to sink in.

Hypnosis takes you into an enjoyable trance using voice. You are aware of everything. You can remember everything. You can absorb only those suggestions that you would like.

Hypnosis is completely natural and scientifically recognized.

Suggestions are based on what you want to focus on, shift or reroot. Such changes at the subconscious level could be new beliefs, new patterns of behaviour, new thoughts, or attitudes.

Hypnosis is an effective method of pruning old neural pathways so they become weaker and rewiring new associations to help you achieve your goals.

Change has never been so easy.

Top 10 Truth Bombs About Hypnosis:

1. Everyone Can Be Hypnotized

Anyone who is able and willing to follow instructions can be hypnotized. You cannot be hypnotized against your will because hypnosis is a consensual state. It works best when you really want to make changes in your life but are having a hard time doing so or a hard time following through.

2. Hypnosis is Very Powerful and Helps You be Your Best Self

Hypnosis helps you tap into your best self – your inherent power.

3. Hypnosis is Not Sleep, Nor is it Relaxation

Hypnosis is focused awareness – where you are highly receptive to positive suggestion. It is not sleep, nor relaxation.

4. Hypnosis is a State of Mind – Not a Feeling

Hypnosis is not a feeling – it’s a state of mind. Some people feel light, like they’re floating; some feel grounded and safe like a tree. Others feel nothing at all or a light buzzing feeling. They’re all correct – and it’s different for every person.

5. Hypnosis Works Really Fast

Just as our brain can quickly learn a phobia (which is a learned fear), our brain can also learn a new response to an old situation very quickly. The brain is lightning fast and can change using neuroplasticity.

6. Hypnosis Works Below the Level of Conscious Thinking

This means you become aware of things that you have not been aware of before – leading to powerful insight!

7. You’ll Be Conscious and Alert the Whole Time in Hypnosis

8. You Are Always in Control During Hypnosis

9. Hypnosis is a Normal and Natural State of Mind

You’ve likely been in a state of hypnosis hundreds of times in your life. Everyday states of hypnosis include: listening to great music, reading a good book and watching a good movie. A light state of hypnosis is achieved anytime you lose track of time.

10. Hypnosis Works

Even if you’ve tried other things to resolve your issue, hypnosis can still work because it works differently – it taps into the power of the subconscious mind where our memories and emotions are stored.
