What Is Hypnosis?

  • Hypnosis in its simplest explanation is a "guided meditation." Many of us enter a hypnotic/meditative or "trance" state while listening to music, watching TV, attending a lecture, or hearing a dynamic speaker. 

      In this case the hypnotist comes in the form a good preacher or book.  What Hypnosis is - is an altered state of consciousness, very much like daydreaming.  It is a trance state that is characterized by suggestibility, relaxation and a heightened imagination.  It is un-like sleep, in that your are fully conscious.  In fact, your concentration becomes completely focused while under hypnosis. 

      People experience light trance as a part of their reality everyday.  If you've ever been captivated by a good movie or a breath-taking story, then you've experience the emotions of these imaginary events as if they were real.  Whether they brought tears to your eyes or made you laugh uncontrollably, you were in a state of hypnosis.  In this special state, it is easy to feel uninhibited, relaxed and at ease.  These experiences, cause you to put your own worries and stresses to the side while you tune into the world of the characters in the movie or play.  A world that is totally imaginary and made up by the story writers.

How Does The Subconscious Mind Work

  • Hypnosis is a tool utilized to access a person's subconscious mind directly.

    In general, most people are only aware of the thought processes that takes place in your conscious mind. You might reflect or think about how you are feeling.  You might consciously choose your friends or what words you speak when you are addressing a potential client or spouse.  Consciously you may try to remember where you parked your car in a large shopping center parking lot or where you left your dry cleaning tag.

    However, you may be unaware that while you are thinking about things, your conscious mind is working hand-in-hand with your subconscious mind, the unconscious part of your mind that does your "behind the scenes" thinking. Your subconscious mind holds the vast reservoir of information that lets you solve problems, construct sentences or locate your keys. It puts together plans and ideas and runs them by your conscious mind. When a new idea comes to you out of the blue, it's because you already thought through the process unconsciously.

    Your subconscious also takes care of all the stuff you do automatically. The subconscious mind runs, preserves and heals the body according to its current condition both physically and emotionally.  It regulates all involuntary body functions- respiration, digestion, elimination, blood pressure, circulation, hormones, etc.  Its holds all memory and it is the generator of all energy. Bodily sensations such as taste, touch and sight as well as your emotional feelings are regulated by your subconscious.  It is also the seat of imagination and impulse.  You don't actively work through the steps of respiration with each passing second -- your subconscious mind does that. Your subconscious also processes the physical information your body receives.

    In short, your subconscious mind is the real brains behind the operation -- it does most of your thinking, and it decides a lot of what you do. When you're awake, your conscious mind works to evaluate a lot of these thoughts, make decisions and put certain ideas into action. It also processes new information and relays it to the subconscious mind. But when you're asleep, the conscious mind gets out of the way, and your subconscious has free reign.

    Through the deep relaxation and focusing exercises of hypnotism, you can work to calm and subdue the conscious mind so that it can be programmed to take a more desired role in your thinking process. In this state, you're still aware of what's going on, but your conscious mind takes a backseat to your subconscious mind.  And, with the help of a hypnotist, you can achieve your goals with optimum results.

How Will Hypnosis Feel?

  • Hypnosis is a natural state of mind.  In a light state, it is entirely possible for one to believe that he or she was not hypnotized.  When one enters into a medium state he or she may feel very relaxed as if sitting in your favorite reclining chair.  In a really deep state, for some the feeling may be very euphoric. However, the whole hypnosis process serves to enhance your ability to recall and it opens your creative awareness  which allows you to be responsive to suggestion.

Will I Lose Control?

  • Although we can become engrossed in a emotional movie or an exciting book (a form of hypnosis), we never lose our control and we always have the power to detach and  come back to reality if we desire to.  As with hypnosis, the movie simply serves as a guide for your mind while you have the power to emerge from the state at your own free will.
