Your subconscious mind runs the show 95% of the time. The subconscious mind is that part of you that has kept you breathing since the day you were born… It does not know time, it does not know the difference between fantasy and reality and its job is to do what we tell it to do. It gets those messages from your own self talk, self-thought and by the choices that you make repetitiously through time. The subconscious mind is all about repetition-repetition-repetition.
When the brain enters into a relaxed state on the edge of sleep, or what may even seem like sleep, the subconscious mind is then open to receive and accept suggestions for changes the listener wants to make. A hypnotist cannot make anyone do something they do not want to do; however, if the listener wants to truly make changes, hypnosis helps them transition from one way of being into their desired way. When they continue to make the changes repetitiously, it becomes their new way of being. An example would be to stop snacking after dinner. Using hypnosis prompts the listener to release the need and desire to snack after dinner. The more the listener doesn’t snack after dinner the easier it becomes and the new choice of not snacking after dinner is their new and natural default choice as they have released the unhealthy habit of snacking after dinner; and most likely released some weight also!
Hypnosis is a passive yet powerful and effective experience. It is a communication with that deeper, wiser and more powerful part of your own being-the subconscious mind. Directions: There’s nothing the listener needs to do but find a comfortable place to relax where they won’t be disturbed for 30-40 minutes, get comfortable and relax, push play and let their mind wander into a dreamy- drowsy state or what may even seem like sleep. There is no need to listen to my voice with your conscious analytical and alert mind. Hypnosis happens when the analytical mind is not paying keen attention to my words, allowing the subconscious mind to receive them as you drift in and out of hearing my voice or what may even seem like sleep.
Hypnosis is a communication with your subconscious mind which runs the show most of the time! As the listener makes the new choices and responds in new ways to old patterns, they are essentially re-writing the programming of their mind thus becoming the person they want to be. Ways in which the listener experiences hypnosis may vary and as with anything, the more you practice the easier it gets! It is antithetical to hear me talking to you, yet needing to ignore me (with the conscious mind). For those with highly analytical minds a good time to listen is at night; you just push play, put your head on the pillow and go to sleep. While in hypnosis you may feel some tingling in your fingers, your eyelids may flicker and flutter, your arms and body may feel heavy and relaxed and your mind may drift in and out, or just drift out as if asleep and come back when the session is over. A session of hypnosis can help the listener feel as if they’ve had a 2-3 hour nap! You are safe.
