Hypnosis is a relaxed state of mind where the mind is hyperfocused and open to positive suggestions that are incongruent to the desired results. It is a natural state of mind that we all experience several times a day without being aware of it. For example, you are in hypnosis while driving, while reading a book, while watching a movie or while listening to your favorite song with your eyes closed. It is a state where the critical faculty /conscious mind is bypassed and the subconscious mind is open and interacts directly with you and the hypnotherapist.
Traumas are endured and experienced by the conscious mind but are stored in the subconscious. It is the subconscious mind that works as a pre-installed program in your life. For example, if you calculate 2+2 in a calculator it will always show the same result, no matter how and where you press the numbers. In the same way, you will attract and experience many major events in your life based on the coding and programs that are set in your subconscious in your childhood, no matter how much you become conscious and try to stop or avoid it. This programming decides what kind of partner you will attract or get attracted to in your adulthood. This is the reason why most of the time people with narcissistic or abusive or emotionally unavailable parent(s) end up in a toxic, abusive, and narcissistic relationship. No matter what they consciously try and do, they end up finding similar kinds of partners again and again, as if they are destined to be hurt and abused. All this happens because they fail to change the programming in their subconscious.
Hypnotherapy works at subconscious level, removing and resolving emotional traumas from the abuse and inner conflict along with the programmed beliefs from childhood and adulthood. It works instantly and effectively for healing from unprocessed and unhealed traumas, whether fresh ones or old.
HYPNOSIS IS CAUSED BY THE POWER OF THE HYPNOTIST
Every hypnosis is a self-hypnosis, done and achieved by consent and with the power of the person who wants to be hypnotized to achieve the desired result. A hypnotist is only a guide who will help you by giving the right suggestions that will help you process, understand and release the unresolved traumas.
ONLY CERTAIN KINDS OF PEOPLE CAN BE HYPNOTIZED
Anyone can be hypnotized provided the willingness to get better. We all experience some degrees of hypnotism throughout the day. Be it reading, listening to music, writing, driving, watching a movie, or doing meditation. Anything that requires and grabs your undivided focused attention can be called a hypnotic state.
ANYONE WHO CAN BE HYPNOTIZED MUST BE WEAK-MINDED
On the contrary, people who go into a hypnotic state easily are found to be creative, confident, and open to healing. Hypnosis has nothing to do with the weakness of the mind or your level of willpower, it is simply about focusing and following the instructions and suggestions given by the hypnotist.
ONCE HYPNOTIZED, ONE CAN NO LONGER RESIST & THE HYPNOTIST CAN MAKE YOU DO ANYTHING THEY WANT
As mentioned earlier, every hypnosis is self-hypnosis and every individual has the power to reject suggestions or come out of hypnosis at any given stage. The subject always stays in control and can not be made to do anything they do not want to do or change.
HOW COME STAGE HYPNOTISTS MAKE PEOPLE DO SILLY THINGS THEN?
The stage shows are for entertainment and the attendees who volunteer want to enjoy and make the most of it. The hypnotist only brings their inner personalities out with their consent and cooperation to make the show entertaining. Volunteers have full control to reject the suggestions and come out of hypnosis at any given time.
IS HYPNOTHERAPY SAFE?
Hypnotherapy is one of the safest and best techniques available for the most effective and instantaneous healing results. It's been used in therapy since the 18th century. Franz Mesmer, a German physician started to use hypnosis in the treatment of patients in Vienna and Paris.
There has been not one incident that can prove that hypnosis can be harmful to anyone. Hypnotherapy is safe and reliable provided the person seeking help does not have any psychotic symptoms such as hallucinations and delusions. It is advised to be open about your mental health before signing up for hypnotherapy.
CAN HYPNOTHERAPY BE DONE ONLINE
Yes, hypnotherapy can be done online, provided the client has good internet and an undisturbed time for the session. I help many people across the world using hypnosis and other modalities online at the comfort of their house. I have helped people heal successfully with just online sessions once a week.
