Hypnosis is a tool to access the Subconscious
Many people still associate Hypnosis with stage entertainment and are unable to see it as an invaluable tool to heal mind and body. Though we all experience Hypnosis in our daily lives, like when you drive somewhere and can’t remember the journey, few know how to use it for its physical and mental health benefits.
Hypnosis is used successfully every day to naturally treat debilitating conditions like Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Depression, Insomnia and PTSD, to name but a few. The secret to its success lies in addressing the emotional root cause of the symptom at source, in the subconscious.
Hypnotherapy lets you amend or delete subconscious programs that no longer serve you
Our subconscious stores all our experiences and everything we have learned in our lives so we are prepared for whatever life confronts us with. The problem with this is that some of the things we have learned are actually unhelpful or even harmful to us. An example of this might be someone terrified of water because of an incident in childhood which to this day stops the person from swimming, or travelling by boat. This self-preservation program is stored in the subconscious and activated whenever the person is faced with water.
If you were bullied or abused as a child you could have come to the conclusion that the world is a dangerous place and you need to be ‘big’ in order to protect yourself from those ‘big’ people who hurt you. You eat more than you need and you literally create armour of fat for protection. Consciously you know that you are now safe as an adult but the hurt child is still triggered in situations that remind you of your childhood hurt. This all happens below the level of your conscious awareness and you never make the connections. Hypnosis lets you see under the hood of your mind.
In order to amend or delete unhelpful or harmful subconscious programs we need to access the subconscious and this is where Hypnosis comes in. This is why consciously deciding to change something in your life becomes an inner battle which the subconscious inevitably wins. Why do you think it is so difficult for people to break habits they know are harmful to them like over eating, smoking or drug addiction?
