Hypnotherapy A Tool For The Mind

Hypnotherapy A Tool For The Mind

Much mystery shrouds Hypnotherapy making it very much misunderstood. People fear it is not safe, that they will loose control, divulge personal information or become stuck in the trance state of mind. The following will reveal to you that this is not true and that it is a safe and effective means toward self-acceptance and love; ultimately, inner peace.

Hypnosis is a natural, yet altered, state of mind that involves comfortable relaxation, a redirection of attention, and active sensory imagination. The benefit of trance lies in it's ability to quieten the mind so that the individuals own inner truth, and not that of the therapist, is revealed. The experience can be likened to being awake while you sleep. It is the rapid attainment of a meditative state where access to the subconscious mind, rather than the more normally regarded conscious mind, is obtained.

The thoughts we think determine not only our mental states, our sentiments and emotions but also the delicate actions and adjustments of our physical bodies. The subconscious mind controls our autonomic nervous system which is the part of our integral workings that creates trembling, palpitation, stammering, blushing and other pathological states all created by changes and modifications in blood flow, in muscular action and in the workings of vital organs. These changes are not voluntary. They are not controlled from conscious effort. These are determined by the capacity of our subconscious. Because hypnotherapy gives us access to communicate with this part of our mind, it provides the pathway to control our internal health.

The subconscious part of your mind is the storehouse of all your memories. Like the memory bank of a computer, it is where every experience you have ever had is filed. Further, research shows, and if your belief system allows, with a Spiritual Hypnosis technique call Past Life Regression you too can experience for yourself, that memories of a past life , and of life between lives, are also filed therein. All these memories are vitally active, each creating the tapestry of our personalities. All these impressions contribute to the nature, positive and negative, of who we are.

Now typically, as Westerners, we find challenge in sitting still and quieting the mind. The hypnotic state of trance allows us rapid access to our inner mind within a special state of resting alertness. The hypnotherapist then guides the client to access their own answers from that "all-knowing" part within. So, in the state of hypnosis, the critical, or judgmental, part of your mind is "asleep," while the fully aware subconscious mind is highly receptive and responsive to all beneficial suggestions.

This poses the misconception of how 'sleep' is involved. Hypnosis comes from the Greek word hypnos meaning "to sleep". Therefore, hypnosis was incorrectly coined with a word that didn’t correctly describe what was actually happening. When in a trance we are actually in an expanded state of awareness where full recollection can be maintained.

This is one of the greatest myths about hypnosis – that while in hypnosis the client will loose control and say or do whatever the hypnotherapist tells them to say or do, and, that they won't remember it afterward. This is not in the slightest bit true. In hypnosis, you cannot be coerced, manipulated, or programmed to do anything you do not truly want to say or do. Hypnosis can only enhance and magnify your ability to achieve those things you truly want to achieve.
