Here’s a wonderful article written by a Psychiatrist about Hypnosis: The Neurological Mechanisms Behind Hypnosis
Hypnosis is a naturally occurring state of mind which happens to us every day. During a hypnotic trance, your mind goes into an altered state, where alpha and theta brainwaves are present. This happens in a variety of situations – each time we read a captivating novel, float off in a daydream, or become absorbed in an entrancing movie, we are in this state.
For thousands of years people have naturally recognized the power of hypnosis to make positive changes, enhance learning, heal emotional scars, change habits, reach goals and speed the healing process.
During hypnosis, direct communication with your unconscious mind can be established. In a hypnotic trance, when guided properly, our minds and bodies are able to allow change much more readily. The door is open to the abilities of the ultra-powerful unconscious mind.
In hypnosis you are in control. In fact, you are more in control of your mind in hypnosis, than is normally the case as you go about your day – distracted by your thoughts, mind going a million miles a minute, multi-tasking and living in a world that moves at breakneck speed.
Before going into a trance during a session, understand that you will continue to be aware during hypnosis and will only accept suggestions that your mind deems moral and appropriate.
Not only is hypnosis safe, it is actually healthy for a variety of conditions.
Anyone CAN be hypnotized and only a light state of hypnosis is required to achieve most changes.
Many people have a talent for going into hypnosis – they go into a trance naturally and easily. Other people may have to learn the skill of going into a trance purposefully. Either way, hypnosis can be a powerful tool for self-empowerment and acheiving any goal.
