Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy Can Change Your Life
Hypnosis has been around for thousands of years in various forms but it is only in the last century that we have come to understand how powerful it can be. Most people have a misperception that hypnosis is something to be scared of because it involves being controlled by someone against their will. This myth continues to be strengthened by television and movie writers because it creates great stories. The majority of people also think that hypnosis is what they see in stage shows where a hypnotist has people quacking like ducks and doing things they wouldn’t normally do. The belief is that the people on the stage are in fact doing these things against their will while they are in an alterred state of awareness.
The truth is that some people are highly suggestible and they like to play. The people you see up on stage are the same people that will race around doing crazy things either under the influence of alcohol or under the influence of just having fun at a party. The reality is that at the time they are completely aware of what they are doing and more than willing to play along even though they always deny it. Nobody can hypnotize you against your will, nor can they give you suggestions that will see you doing things that you wouldn’t normally do. For instance, if under hypnosis I was to give you a suggestion to go out and rob the local bank and you were a law abiding citizen, there is no way that you would follow through on that suggestion. Even the legal system has caught up with that one. Being under the influence of hypnosis is not an excusable reason for committing a crime in any court of law.
Hypnosis is an extremely powerful tool that enables you to communicate with your Unconscious Mind to assist with unlocking deep blockages that are preventing you from living the life you want to live. When hypnosis is being used in the context of therapy it is referred to as hypnotherapy. Hypnosis is a naturally occurring state in all of us. Have you noticed how when you relax and watch television how easy it is to be lulled into sleep? What about when driving – have you ever got to your destination and had no recollection of the things that you passed along the journey? Have you ever read a book when you have become so completely absorbed in the story that you’ve forgotten to eat and hours have slipped by without you noticing it? Have you ever been so engrossed in what you were doing that you didn’t notice someone talking to you? What about when you were in school or university listening to your lecturers – remember how you kind of slid off into a dazed trance listening to them drone on? These are all examples of naturally occurring hypnosis. All hypnosis is in fact self hypnosis and you cannot be hypnotised unless you are willing to relax into this naturally occurring state.
Once you do relax into this state it is possible to communicate with the unconscious mind at a very deep level. The Unconscious Mind is responsible for running the body and for storing our memories and emotions as well as our negative emotions and bringing those emotions to the surface to be dealt with. Letting go of negative emotions and beliefs at a deep level can bring about amazing transformation in your life. However, you need to be open to the possibility of change and of allowing yourself to go into a trance state.
You’re thinking, maybe if you just search a bit longer, you’ll finally discover the secret to creating the life that you really want. You hope to discover the secret to having control over the way you feel and the way you behave and to be able to influence the world around you. The fact is that you’ve always had this power inside you – you just didn’t know how to use it! Nobody has ever taught you the easy way of how to tap into your own power.
The super wealthy use it. The top athletes use it. Celebrities and people in the entertainment industry use it. In fact all peak performers use it! Now you can use Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy to enhance your life too!
Hypnosis is a scientifically verified and effective technique that can promote accelerated change in certain repetitive behaviours including smoking and weight loss, stress reduction, motivation and pain control. With Hypnosis you can create desired changes in your behaviour and encourage mental and physical well-being.
Within each of us there is a very powerful mechanism that is called our Unconscious Mind. The Unconscious Mind is in charge of many things one of which is running and maintaining your body. It also stores your memories and emotions, both good and bad, and presents them to you as you travel along life’s journey so you can resolve them. Now you can either choose to work with the Unconscious Mind or not. Either way the Unconscious Mind is still going to perform its function and you may not like when the Unconscious Mind chooses the moment to bring these issues up for resolution.
The way you feel and the way you think directly influences the way your life is functioning. This is not a conscious process but one that takes place at the unconscious level. Therefore, when you are not communicating effectively with your Unconscious Mind, or even worse, deny that it even exists, you tend to feel like your life is out of control. There is a tendency to immediately blame external forces, but, that is not the case.
The way it works is like this. What you feel and think in any given moment creates the external reality in the next moment. You cannot have an external reality until you have created it first internally. Everything you experience in your life is a projection from you. So if you are having a bad day and you are tempted to blame that person who you think is causing it, think again. They are simply reacting to the energy that you are projecting.
Now this is really good news. Because if you are creating your life in this random manner already, you can learn to work with the Unconscious Mind and create exactly the life you want. Now just for a minute think what you could achieve.
Do yourself a favour, learn to communicate effectively with your Unconscious Mind. There is a wealth of information about hypnosis out there just waiting for you as well as any number of courses and trainings you can take. Hypnosis really can release you from the constraints holding you back at the Unconscious level.
