What is Hypnosis?


The Truth About Hypnosis

What is Hypnosis?Hypnosis has been defined a state of focused attention and receptiveness. It is a naturally occurring state which we enter many times throughout the day.

 

The conscious mind containing all of our busy thoughts enters a relaxed, neutral state. The subconscious mind containing all of our emotions and beliefs becomes very receptive to suggestion. The positive images, thoughts and feelings we experience during hypnosis become embedded in our mind enabling us to manifest the positive changes easily.

 

Hypnosis feels extraordinarily relaxing, as if you have just had a wonderful sleep. Some people experience a pleasant heaviness while others may feel light and tingly. Still many people do not experience any changes at all. The truth is that it doesn’t make a difference; we are all individuals and there is no right or wrong way to experience hypnosis. You will emerge from the hypnosis feeling wonderfully relaxed and refreshed.

 

What Does Hypnosis Feel Like?

Hypnosis is effective in helping people make positive and lasting changes. Hypnotic suggestions, or affirmations, are received and accepted by the subconscious mind by bypassing the critical factor of the conscious mind. You will notice the shifts in thought and behavior easily –- without conscious effort on your part.

 

Can Everyone be Hypnotized?

Most people can easily be hypnotized. The ability to enter a state of hypnosis can be increased with practice. The most important criteria is the desire to make the intended changes.
