Hypnosis Sessions are ideal for
We All Experience Self-Hypnosis Every Day
Trance is a naturally occurring state that we all do several times daily. During waking hours, there are times when we find ourselves relaxed and daydreaming, with our critical faculties and inhibitions diminished, as we go into a state of heightened learning, or suggestibility. Trance is like a daydream where we suspend our critical judge in order to allow new solutions to arise. Sometimes this trance happens all by itself, but learning to do Self-Hypnosis is a powerful creative tool that we can call on as needed.
Eighty percent (80-90%) of what a person does, everyday, is subconscious. This means there are things we think or do automatically. Professional Hypnotist can help a client to reprogram these negative thoughts, which lead to negative feelings and actions. Through hypnosis, these thoughts are replaced with positive thoughts. Positive thoughts lead to positive feeling and actions.
Adults Enter Trance Several Times a Day
As adults, we spend less overall time in hypnotic trances than we did as 6-year-old children, but we still spend a few minutes each hour daydreaming, integrating new learnings, reviewing future plans, reliving confrontations, or stunned by beauty, or encounters with celebrity. These are all trance states. Whenever we are required to make a foul shot, or a putt, or to spell a difficult word, we enter trance, by tuning out external stimuli.
Trance is normal and healthy, and it is the only state in which we really learn anything. It is the “downtime” that our brains require to make sense of the new sensory inputs we are constantly bombarded with.
As adults we can use Hypnosis to learn rapidly, update our beliefs, and modify our map of the world. Old habits can be diminished, and beliefs and new habits established, strengthened and habituated as the critical mind is temporarily and willfully suspended.
Remember that the job of the critical mind is to evaluate the future, against the memories of the past, in the present, using a linear mental calculus.
What Hypnosis is Not – Hypnosis is not sleep.
Sleep is dominated by Theta waves during light sleep, and Delta waves during deep sleep. Hypnosis invokes mostly Alpha waves in light trance, and Theta waves during deeper trance, so though alert and responsive to the voice of the hypnotherapist, hypnosis can feel much like a daydream. In this state our inner thoughts and feelings dominate our waking attention, rather than the world “out there”.
When in a hypnotic trance, we can easily bring ourselves to full awareness of the outer world whenever there is a pressing need, like a suggestion to do so, or an ordinary interruption like a doorbell, honking horn, or another signal. Without such a signal, it is also possible to bring oneself out of trance as needed.
Hypnosis does not render one powerless.
Together, the client and hypnotist or hypnotherapist enter into a spoken or implied agreement, working as partners in a state of trance, to explore areas of mentation where creativity, imagination or a search for new meaning are the goals. A subject cannot be kept in trance against his or her will.
It is unfortunately true that hypnotic techniques play a part in the brainwashing of subjects who give their minds over to disreputable or dangerous religious, gang or political leaders – but hypnotic techniques and speech are only portion of their manipulative repertoire. The most manipulative and cult leaders also utilize isolation, fear, rewards and punishments to limit choices of their subjects.
