Hypnosis is the process of inducing a trance-like sate designed to by-pass the conscious mind & make self-improvement suggestions directly to the subconscious mind. This can be achieved through self-hypnosis, utilizing pre-recorded CD`s, or with assistance of a certified hypnotist. When people discover how to induce hypnotic trance they can find it an incredibly liberating experience. There is a sense of being back in control of your own mind and igniting new, positive experiences and initiating change by stepping out of the conscience, critical mind and tapping into the vast resources of the subconscience mind. It is widely accepted as an excellent method for accessing our inner potential.
With the process of hypnosis, we can distract the conscious mind with deep physical & mental relaxation to the point where it no longer is analytical & critical of our environment, allowing information supportive of your desired goal to enter the subconscious mind. This creates the opportunity to observe new perceptions conducive to forming positive beliefs and the opportunity to implement new outcomes to negative behavioral patterns.
The conscious mind, which is our analytical, outer mind, can typically only hold seven to ten bits of information at a time. However, the subconscious mind, our creative, inner mind, has an unlimited capacity, and it is who we really are. It contains all of our beliefs, values, and habits which are formed as a result of our life experiences. Some of these beliefs and habits can be limiting and hold us back. Hypnosis bypasses the conscious mind to reach the subconscious mind and implement the desired change. This is similar to a person taking a bypass on a freeway to get to their destination quicker. In hypnosis we are putting to work that part of the mind that we have used unconsciously.
There are basically five levels of mind of which we speak, with many levels in between, but the primary brainwave levels are, Gamma, Beta, Alpha, Theta, and Delta.
Gamma : the brain’s information and sensory-binding brainwave state, links and processes information from all parts of the brain. Associated with having high levels of intelligence, insight, compassion, self-control, and feelings of natural happiness. Beta: is our normally wide awake state of consciousness at which we operate throughout the day.
Alpha: is the first level of trance we experience, and is considered the mildest, yet still useful level of hypnosis.
Theta: is considered a deeper level of hypnosis.
Delta: is a level of deep sleep which the body uses for tissue repair and recovery.
The interesting thing about these levels is that we experience them every day of our lives. Once we get going in the morning we are in Beta, and as we head off to dream land at the end of our day, we pass through both the Alpha and Theta levels as we fall asleep soon entering REM, our dream state, and then Delta, then cycling through REM and Delta until we awaken again. With the process of hypnosis, we can distract the conscious mind with deep relaxation to the point where it no longer is analytical and critical of our environment, allowing information supportive of your desired goal to enter the subconscious mind. This creates the opportunity to observe new perceptions conducive to forming positive beliefs and the opportunity to implement new outcomes to negative behavioral patterns.
