Hypnosis is a deep state of relaxation during which suggestions are made to create beneficial changes in ideas or behavior. The subconscious mind controls the involuntary functions of the body, including habits and things that we do ‘automatically’ - it is fueled by our emotions and imagination. The subconscious mind also contains memories of every single thing that has occurred to us. When it comes down to people making the changes that they desire, we know that sometimes there are blockages that prevent them from doing so. One of those blockages is the power of their ‘belief system’ or another name for that might be ‘past programming’, another is their ‘Automatic Negative Thoughts’ (ANT’s). One of the most powerful ways that a person can overcome these is to override the stimulus of their ANT’s by replacing them with Positive Thoughts.
In hypnosis the mind is very receptive to new ideas and open to suggestions which encourage more sensible, balanced or helpful attitudes to reality.
Mind and body affect each other dramatically and the person is benefited holistically by this approach. The number of sessions required usually varies from person to person, however most people testify to benefits immediately.
