In my recent visit with Valerie Grimes I found she had written an article on How hypnosis could be a mainstream resource for those seeking help with behavior modification.
In this very well written article Valerie states, “Hypnosis is one of the most effective ways to change automatic responses or actions, in an effortlessly way. That is because the subconscious drives the actions and when the subconscious is programmed with a positive response that is the neural pathway it follows.”
Here are just a few of the behaviors that can be treated with Hypnosis:
- Nail biting
- Stress eating
- Anger bursts
Hypnosis is commonly written off by most people as just a gimmick or an unsound method of treating what they consider to be a serious problem. This comes from the fear people have of things they don’t completely understand.
Get The Facts
Here are some facts about being in a state of hypnosis:
- Being in trance is a natural thing that everybody does. Hypnosis simply brings it about deliberately.
- You will still be able to hear the normal every day sounds that are going on around them, but won’t be at all bothered by them. They’ll just be more focused on my voice, or whatever they’re thinking about in hypnosis at the time.
- You’ll remain alert and awake, but deeply relaxed, and this special state of awareness is what lets us speak directly to their unconscious mind.
- Different people do respond slightly differently, with some people going much deeper than others, but everyone is able to go deeply enough into trance to be able to benefit from hypnotic work.
- You’ll be able to come out of trance immediately if you want or need to, and be in total control throughout the session. You’ll only take on board suggestions that appeal to you, that they see as beneficial, and you will only reveal or talk about things that you choose to.
- The only thing which would prevent you from being hypnotized is if you really don’t want to be.
…a highly relaxed, naturally heightened state of awareness and safe
HYPNOSIS IS NOT…
…mind control, mindlessness, being gullible, performing against your will
