What is Hypnosis?

This is why it is so difficult to change an old belief or habit such as, eating patterns, smoking, sleeping patterns and or any other habit by trying to use WILL POWER. Will Power comes for the conscious mind 10% strength, while ingrained habits come from our subconscious 90% strength. WILL POWER doesn’t stand much of a chance.

Hypnosis is an effective process to bypass the conscious mind and communicate directly with subconscious mind, enabling change to take place in the subconscious mind which is our automated control tower. Results with Hypnosis are faster and easier than will power.


Hypnosis Myths

For the purpose of a general understanding of hypnosis I will refer to Dave Elman's definition of hypnosis. "Hypnosis is bypassing the critical faculty of the conscious mind in order to establish selective thinking within the subconscious mind."

We all have two minds, a conscious mind and a subconscious mind. Your conscious mind is the judgmental, logical, analytical and linear thinking mind, which makes-ups about 10 percent of our thinking. The subconscious mind is our creative and is symbolic in nature.  Emotions are the domain of your subconscious as are perceptions, habits, beliefs and automatic bodily functions such as breathing and digestion. The main point for our purpose is that beliefs and habits are stored in our subconscious, which controls about 90 percent of our daily lives.

About Hypnosis

Myth 1:

When you wake up from hypnosis, you won’t remember anything that happened when you were hypnotized.

While amnesia may occur in very rare cases, people generally remember everything that occurred while they were hypnotized. However, hypnosis can have a significant effect on memory. Posthypnotic amnesia can lead an individual to forget certain things that occurred before or during hypnosis. However, this effect is generally limited and temporary.

Myth 2: 

You can be hypnotized against your will.

Despite stories about people being hypnotized without their consent,12 hypnosis requires voluntary participation on the part of the patient.

Myth 3: 

The hypnotist has complete control of your actions while you’re under hypnosis.

While people often feel that their actions under hypnosis seem to occur without the influence of their will, a hypnotist cannot make you perform actions that are against your values or morals.

Myth 4: 

Hypnosis can make you super-strong, fast or athletically talented.

While hypnosis can be used to enhance performance, it cannot make people stronger or more athletic than their existing physical capabilities.
