Experiencing Hypnosis.....How does it work and will it work for me?
If this is your first visit to my website as you're curious about experiencing Hypnosis, please take a few moments to read this material. It will answer many questions you may have and I think you'll find it informative. Hypnosis, when mentioned in conversation, creates so many interesting reactions in people. Most people think they can't be hypnotized! The truth is that as long as there is nothing to keep you from being able to focus or a period of time using your imagination, you can! Or if you're under the age of 6, which you're likely not if you're reading this text, because kids just can't focus long enough, although they have great imaginations.
There are many misconceptions about hypnosis. A simple definition of hypnosis is that it is a state of increased suggestibility and concentration. In this state, your conscious critical mind becomes dormant, less aware, less able to "think and analyze", and this allows unobstructed and direct communication with the sub-conscious mind.
When this happens, and I help you to get there, I can assist you in making changes at the deep sub-conscious level needed for permanent change. Hypnosis is empowering! Please don't expect to go to sleep or to feel as if you don’t know what you are doing. I promise you won't be clucking like a chicken...unless you want to. It' more like a deep daydream state where you are marginally aware of the outside world while more fully focused on your inner world, the world of imagery, emotions and sensations in your body.
All Hypnosis is self-hypnosis. You won’t do or say anything in hypnosis that you would not normally say or do. You are in control at all times. Mind you, if you want to bark like a dog instead of clucking, I can't stop you! You will also be aware of what is going on around you - like what I am saying and what you are experiencing in your mind. You're able to talk to me as I ask for clarification about what you're experiencing. In fact, some people will think they have not been in hypnosis because they are expecting something odd to be happening to them.
Again, don't expect a lack of consciousness or amnesia. You may feel that you are unaffected by what is being said, but in fact, you will be directly affected because the subconscious mind is listening and making changes at a very deep level. 90% of the timeyou will feel affected because if you're letting feelings come up that are connected to your issue, I can help you understand their root cause and make changes that give you relief and clarity.
Imagination is the language of the subconscious mind. If I told you in hypnosis that your eyes are firmly shut and you could not open them and they did in fact NOT open, it is NOT because I told you that they would not open, it is because you IMAGINED that they could not be opened, even though you knew you could. You're in control of your eyeblids, not me. You used your own imagination to create the sensation and belief that your eyes would not open. That's using your subconscious mind because it's this part of your mind that speaks through imagination, symbols and metaphor. Hypnosis is about imagination and creation. Together, you and I will create new positive feelings, pictures, images, sights, sounds, smells, and emotions to replace specific negative ones that you might have gathered up, unknowingly, over the years.
The subconscious mind can't tell the difference between what it has actually seen (imagined) and what I will help you to create in sub-consciouslu for your highest good. Therefore, you can create anything you desire! A professionally trained Hypnotherapist is your Guide, your Facilitator and your Partner. That's me!
The success of your hypnotherapy session will be enhanced by your willingness to use your imagination and by your desire to allow yourself to go into the deep state of calmness that I'll help you create. So the question that must be asked, before we begin, is whether you are willing to experience hypnosis for your own personal well-being and to change negative behaviors/emotions into more positive behaviors/emotions?
If the answer is yes, then I am happy to take you on your journey of self discovery.
