Insomnia, anxiety, cigarette addiction, excess weight: Where is the real problem?
Most of today’s physical, mental and emotional issues, like insomnia, anxiety, stress, and a variety of phobias and compulsive disorders, are deeply rooted in the subconscious mind. They are only symptoms of more profound issues and problems. This is why it is often so hard to quit smoking or successfully lose weight. Such difficulties arise from the lack of alignment in our inner self, which produces consequences in our outside world. An example is an outdated system of beliefs and behaviors that is no longer serving us properly and is in fact limiting us. Changing our belief system is not easy at all, exactly because it requires going deep inside the subconscious and gaining the self-awareness necessary to “update” it.
Why does hypnotherapy work so well?
The reason hypnotherapy works so well is that it not only deals with the current issues, belief systems and behaviors effectively and quickly; it also deals with the source of the issue and with any emotion and trauma associated with it, clearing out the source root cause and empowering us to integrate a more healthy mindset for the future.
Beyond the myth: What exactly is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a completely natural state of mind, similar to sleep, except for the fact that the senses become more alert and heightened. Hypnosis alters the state of consciousness in such a way that the analytical left-hand side of the brain is distracted or bypassed, while the more creative right-hand side is invited out to be more alert and aware. The conscious mind is diverted or distracted whilst the subconscious mind is woken up.
What happens during a Hypnotherapy session?
During a session, the hypnotherapist works out the positive change on the powerful subconscious mind, the one that determines our habits, emotions, feelings, unconscious behaviors, capabilities, abilities, creativity and attitudes. The hypnotherapist finds the outdated personal preferences and beliefs sabotaging success in certain areas of our life, and directly communicates with the subconscious mind. This communication happens by means of positive suggestions (involving smoke cessation, curing of insomnia or anxiety) that create a new neuro-linguistic path in the brain and are able to positively influence emotions, preferences and behaviors. The old patterns dissolve naturally and we feel more efficient and free of those old burdens, beliefs or habits that were weighing us down.
What is the best thing about Hypnosis?
One of the beautiful things about Hypnosis is that change work is the new positive changes require no will power or strain on the patient’s behalf, they become aligned within ourselves, a natural part of us once the suggestions have been accepted on the subconscious level. This of course happens with the patient’s consent and permission, who at any time during the process is in control because he or she is more alert and his or her senses are heightened.
