Hypnosis is not weird and it’s not magic! It has been used in very positive ways for many years and is a very constructive tool when used by a trained professional. It can make a huge difference in someone’s life and business and is a safe, relaxing way to stop negative mind chatter and unwanted habits or behaviors.
It can be used to overcome limiting beliefs, to conquer fear of speaking, give you more self confidence, to decrease stress and anxiety and can also help with weight loss among a myriad of other things.
You have two areas of your mind. They are not two minds they are two separate spheres of activity within one brain. The conscious area of your mind which makes up 10% of your brain power is the reasoning area, the one that makes choices. For example, choosing a movie, a book, a home etc.
Your subconscious represents 90% of your brainpower and everything else in your body is actually functioning from your sub-conscious. This part of your mind accepts messages, both positive and negative without any reasoning.
You only have 10% of conscious memory to help you create strong self confidence. However, you want more than this! You want to feel empowered and confident and you want to think positively without doubting your abilities so that you know
and believe that you can create and achieve all the success you want in life and business.
But, maybe you have self limiting beliefs you are not even aware of and they are holding you back and sabotaging your success. Maybe you find yourself thinking “I can’t” or “what if” instead of believing “I can do absolutely anything I make a decision to do.”
The neurons in the brain can be re-wired and re-programmed much like you would reprogram a computer. Zapping negative thinking and behavior using hypnosis is very powerful because it can be used to access your subconscious and replace the old messages with positive, confident powerful messages that really work to benefit you.
Two of the most popular questions I’m asked are; Will hypnosis succeed if I haven’t had success before? Can anybody be hypnotized?
Everybody can be hypnotized by an experienced trained professional. However, it will only work if you really want it to. For example, if you are constantly thinking “Oh my god what if I fail” and although you say you want to think differently you don’t take any action to help this happen it will be a lot more challenging to change your mindset. You have to really want to change your thinking and/or behavior for yourself.
I’ve been a certified master clinical hypnotherapist for over 20 years and I’m a certified results coach, NLP practitioner and stress management counselor so I have many years of experience and training.
Since I became a coach 17 years ago, I’ve been using hypnosis on the phone with clients who want to increase their confidence and alleviate negative mind chatter and self limiting beliefs for anxiety, fears, doubts, obsessive behavior and fear of speaking as well as weight control, with fantastic results. However, hypnosis is not a magic potion!
Confidence comes from being willing to take action in conjunction with hypnosis.
Hypnosis works by placing someone in a deeply relaxed state and then with their permission, introducing new thoughts patterns into the subconscious area of your mind.
You are not asleep, you can hear everything that is being said and because you’re so deeply relaxed hearing sounds doesn’t bother you in any way. We don’t swing watches or use pendulums and a hypnotherapist can never make you do anything against your own values. It’s really just a state of ultra deep relaxation that allows a professional to access your subconscious quickly and easily. And, from what my clients tell me makes a huge difference in the way they think, act and behave.
Hypnosis can help someone change the way they think so that any negative is replaced with positive thinking. Learning to think a different way and have auto-suggestions so that the changes take place faster is very powerful and makes it so much easier to achieve success and abundance in business and in life. However, as I said, it’s not magic. You still need plans and actions to make the new thinking even stronger. If you are saying one thing and yet your actions say another then you are not being congruent and your conscious and Subconscious are not integrated.
If you decide this is something you would like to explore to change the way you think or change a behavior that no longer works for you, make sure you go to someone who is recommended or, do some research to make sure they are competently trained.
I offer a complimentary 20 minute phone (phone or Skype) hypno-consult to see if hypnosis is an option for any challenges you may be having. If you are interested in this please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hypnosis might change your life in a very positive way!
