What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a state of acute attention or focussed relaxation.
It is a state of extreme awareness where one focuses their
attention on what is being said or suggested. When we focus the
mind or the attention of the conscious mind on something it
becomes very easy to deliver therapeutic suggestions to the
subconscious mind, which is not critical of those suggestions,
it just accepts what is being said. Hypnosis is a NATURAL state
of mind where the subconscious mind becomes more receptive and
stores new ideas, better models of behaviour and better thought
processes and feelings. It is an altered state of attention in
which it is possible to communicate with the subconscious mind.
It is like daydreaming, however when you are in this daydream
state which is extremely calm and relaxed, positive suggestions
are given to alter or change the way a person feels, acts or
behaves. Hypnosis is also a way to tap into your personal power.
It is a way to change bad habits, increase personal memory,
unleash creative potential, explore hidden abilities, increase
well being, build confidence, increase motivation, help medical
conditions, increase academic and athletic performance and
overcome obstacles in ones life. Hypnosis promotes POSITIVE
change. It is one of the most powerful tools available to each
and every single person.
