I am a trained, qualified hypnotherapist and specialise in Past Life Regressions. I do despair of the amount of misinformation about hypnosis and felt compelled to share some of my knowledge to right some of the wrongs I see repeated all too commonly by others.
Many people believe that hypnosis is about either putting someone into an altered state, telling them to do something, and then that thing will happen, or for the amusement of others on stage, invariably asking them to behave like a chicken! But hypnosis doesn’t work like that. It is not about instant results.
So how does hypnosis work?
Hypnosis re-educates your sub-conscious mind, your habitual responses, and instincts. These develop over a lifetime. It is hardly surprising that they can take some shifting.
Some have an irrational fear of spiders. Even the thought of a spider frightens them. The mind has linked spiders with fear. This is negative self- hypnosis.
We can use hypnosis to change this response. We can take deliberate control of the way you feel by relaxing you, and having you imagine things that make you feel good, and then have you rehearse the phobia while in a happy, controlled state.
Sounds simple, doesn’t it? And it is! There are many subtleties involved as well, but this is the most fundamental use for hypnosis. Changing your emotional reaction – how you feel about something.
It has so many applications…
If you’re a smoker, change how you feel about cigarettes.
If you’re trying to lose weight, change how you feel about fatty and sugary foods.
If you dislike public speaking, change how you feel about that.
About exercise, about achieving, about yourself, …
The list really is endless. And all from one ‘simple’ tool.
One thing I always make clear to my clients is that hypnosis has not been successful until it has changed an individual’s behaviour and their response to a situation. It is only in the white heat of battle that success or failure an be determined.
No-one can call themselves changed or cured until they have done what they were aiming to do, while feeling the way they wanted to feel.
Once that has happened, you are changed. Your experience is changed. And no-one can ever take that away.
The sub-conscious mind learns quickly and so effectively, how can we use hypnosis to teach it new things? The sub-conscious mind needs a clear message about what you want from it.
This is at the core of all hypnosis.
Once you understand this, you will understand the central mechanism of almost all self-help approaches – positive thinking, visualisation, autogenics, the Silva method – all sorts. They all use this device.
When you can do something without thinking, you have assigned it to your sub-conscious mind, such things as talking, driving, writing, walking, eating, catching a ball and so on. It is achieved by repetition, and enhanced by attaching emotion to it.
For instance, you might have an embarrassing experience and afterwards, you only need think of it to blush , an involuntary response.
You have a terrifying experience and afterwards, any situation similar to it makes you feel anxious.
A film makes you laugh. Afterwards, just thinking of the scene makes you smile.
The common factor to all these scenarios is emotion. Emotion makes the pattern stick. The greater the emotion, the more stuck it becomes, and the greater the effect in the future.
Using hypnosis trains your brain to focus on what you want, not on what you don’t want, giving you control over the contents of your thoughts, reinforcing the positive, and decoupling the negatives.
