Napoleon once said, “imagination rules the world.” Hypnosis is based on our unique ability to imagine and concentrate. When we develop and use this amazing power of our minds to imagine, and thereby create our own reality, so called “bad” habits can be broken and new “good” habits can be formed.
Consciously, intellectually, we may believe we want to be a non-smoker or we want to be thinner.
Yet in order to change deep seated patterns and beliefs about ourselves–the ones that tell us we need a cigarette or that we want to eat foods that are harmful to us, we have to bypass the conscious mind and go directly to the root of all behavior – the subconscious mind.
The conscious mind is the logical, analytical, critical part of our minds – the part that rationalizes away all our good intentions. During hypnosis, the conscious mind is lulled into a passive state and the subconscious mind is free to accept, uncritically, the beneficial suggestions given to you by the hypnotist, and then act on them to bring you the benefits you are looking for.
The subconscious mind controls all functions and actions. What many people don’t realize is that imagination is stronger than willpower. If a person decides to lose weight but at the same time is unwittingly imagining how deprived she is and how good that brownie would taste and feel, the imagination will always win.
And then, of course, a sense of failure, self-hate and guilt takes over and starts the cycle of more failure.
However, by becoming deeply relaxed (and essentially hypnosis is a pleasant, wonderful state of deep relaxation) blocking out all external stimuli and concentrating on the hypnotist’s suggestions, it is easy to alter negative patterns of behavior by imagining ourselves being, looking and feeling and sounding the way we want to be.
Hypnosis only enhances personal power. It restores your control over your life by implanting suggestions into the subconscious mind to help you do what you consciously and intellectually want to do. It helps you to get out from being stuck in a rut to reach your full potential.
You might be surprised at how strong your imagination really is. I’d like you to try a simply exercise. Sit comfortably, take a few deep breaths and exhale slowly and easily. Close your eyes. Imagine that you are sitting at a table with a plate in front of you. An orange is on the plate.
Look at the skin and the color of the orange. Pick it up and cut it into four segments. Watch the juice flow from it. See the seeds, white membrane and pulp. Pick up a segment and bring it toward your nose. Smell it. Now slowly begin to eat the slice of orange. If you are like most people who try this exercise, you will begin to salivate even before you have “eaten” the orange.
Surprised? The power of hypnosis and the amazing capacity of your own mind may hold many more delightful surprises in store for you.
Hypnosis is an amazing tool to make positive changes in our selves easily and effortlessly.
Each experience with hypnosis is completely unique. How deep you go and how receptive you are depends on how comfortable you are in the situation, your motivation and your ability to relax and concentrate, in the moment.
