What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a natural trance state that you go in and out of everyday. Have you ever missed your exit on the highway while driving because you were so deep in thought? Lost time reading a book? These are examples of natural hypnotic states. The easiest way to describe hypnotic trance is by the brain wave state. During waking hours when you work/attend school your conscious mind analyzes and solves problem with a beta brain wave state. When we relax or meditate, we can shift our brain into alpha or theta brain waves. It is only then that our subconsious mind is accessible and open to change. It is the role of the hyonotherapist to induce this alpha brain wave state in efforts to speak to the subconsious part of the brain. The subconsious mind is where all habits, memories, and personality traits are stored. Therefore, if you have lingering baggage from old traumas or habits you want to break- they must be accessed through the subconsious mind while the critical conscious mind remains an observer. You are never not in control during a hypnotic session. You cannot be brainwashed or convinced to do anything against your moral beliefs or wants. Your subconsious is your biggest ally, protector, and friend. It is your gut feeling or instinct that keeps you from walking down that dark alley.
“The unconscious mind is decidedly simple, unaffected, straightforward and honest. It hasn’t got all of this facade, this veneer of what we call adult culture. It’s rather simple, rather childish It is direct and free.”-Milton Erikson
