What is that one thing in your life that you've been wanting to change, but simply do not have the time or patience for? Have you tried to quit smoking several times only to be done in by overwhelming cravings? Do you have difficulty concentrating on homework or important projects on the job? Do you simply feel lost and yearn for some guidance in your life right now? You are not alone. Many people today are in a constant "on-the-go" state of mind, and are challenged to find down- time to do something for themselves.
What if you do have the time, but just don't have the motivation or don't know where to start? The solution to these issues lies in hypnosis.
With hypnosis, not only can you achieve those goals that have been eluding you, you can make positive changes that have long term benefits.
When asked about their experience with hypnosis, most people think of Las Vegas comedy acts. This is usually where a hypnotist picks a "victim" to come up on the stage to be put under a sort of "mind control" that causes them to do all sorts of crazy things. This is simply a form of entertainment and is completely different from the form of hypnosis used by Hypnotherapists.
Firstly, with hypnosis, there is no such thing as "mind control." During a hypnosis session, the client is in complete control of the entire situation. In fact, the client could very easily get up and walk out of the room on their own, if he or she felt so inclined.
What hypnosis IS, is a hightened state of awareness. While under hypnosis, some may notice that their senses are sharper and they feel an overall sense of relaxation.
Hypnotherapy can be defined as a method of therapy that utilizes hypnosis to achieve positive changes within the subconscious mind and create relaxation in the physical body. Hypnosis is a very natural state of mind. In fact, everyone experiences states of hypnosis on a daily basis!
Have you ever gotten into your car in the morning to go to work one moment, and the next moment you find yourself driving into the parking lot and you can't recall how you got there? It was as if you were on autopilot! Have you ever gone to the movies and gotten so captivated by the character’s story that it made you cry or laugh hysterically? Logically, you know that it is just a projection on a screen, but you feel an emotional connection with the character. These are very common forms of hypnosis. These are experiences that we are all familiar with. This type of hypnosis can also be used to help you achieve many of your goals!
Hypnosis works by accessing the subconscious area of the mind while you are physically and mentally relaxed. When you receive positive suggestions while in this state, it becomes easier for you to accept and achieve the positive goals that you strive for. It feels very natural and almost effortless. With hypnosis your potential for success is unlimited!
