There is nothing magical or mystical about hypnosis as stage hypnotists would have us believe, and the idea of mind control is absurd. People who are wary of hypnosis do not have a true understanding of it. Very simply, hypnosis works with the most powerful part of our mind, the subconscious, which may seem rather frightening, but not at all, hypnosis is like daydreaming, in fact each day we all drift in and out of hypnosis many times in a day. So, how does hypnosis feel? Well, most of my clients would tell you ‘It is a very calming and pleasant experience’, not what they had expected at all. So what does hypnosis have to do with our problems? The answer is everything! There are two parts to our mind, the conscious part and the subconscious part. The conscious part we use all day to communicate and learn through our senses, it has the ability to argue, doubt and criticise, it is the reasoning mind through which we make decisions and choices. In complete contrast the subconscious part says yes. Hypnosis is a relaxed state of mind which engages the unconscious, in fact we all drift in and out of hypnosis many times a day, for example, when we are totally engrossed in an interest or hobby, when we drive our car and daydream, anytime our mind wanders into worrying thoughts, when we experience shock or trauma, or that rather sleepy feeling we drift in and out of sleep, so the mind drifts in and out of hypnosis frequently, and in this state our unconscious is much more receptive to suggestion. Tests have shown that 75% of our thoughts are negative, so whenever we are daydreaming we are reinforcing and strengthening whatever our thoughts are on. to everything, it can’t argue and accepts and responds to all conscious thoughts and experiences. It’s where all our learning, beliefs, behaviours and problems take root, it’s a memory bank of our life’s experiences, and completely dominates our behaviour and actions, in spite of our conscious will to change. Unfortunately some of our perceptions and beliefs are false. For example a person who has low self esteem believes they are worthless, which of course is not the case, they are actually worth more than they think. A smoker may associate having a cigarette with relieving stress, smoking actually increases blood pressure. A person with poor eating habits may have experienced bullying as a child, and turned to food for comfort. A person with OCD will have experienced some sort of trauma and developed a compulsive habit to feel safe, and it is this kind poor matching of thoughts to situations that is at the heart of most psychological problems. We are all the result of our own life experiences, and we are all capable of achieving more than we can actually imagine. People who open their mind to new possibilities will always move ahead and be more successful than those who don’t. As we learn to understand ourselves and others better we can improve all areas of our life, including communication skills, confidence, health and happiness.
