What is hypnosis? Hypnosis is nothing more and nothing less than a deep state of relaxation.
Hypnosis is not something that you need to fear.
Once you have experieced hypnosis you will want to enjoy the awesome place again as it feels so good and tranquil when you are there
A part us is called the mind, which is divided into four parts:
Super Conscious Mind This is the part of your mind where all your memories are stored
Sub or Unconscious Mind IIs more accepted by the public is the Subconscious Mind
Conscious Mind So what is the Conscious Mind then?
Discursive Mind When ino a deep state of relaxation your brain activity on a conscious level also becomes relaxed. In this state we allow another part of our mind, the Discursive Mind, to become more active, but this Discursive Mind is also playing in the back ground at all times when you are awake. It is often best described as you own Devils advocate or the naughty little internal child.
Here is an excerpt from the article From the New York Times 15 April 2011
"Talk therapy engages the conscious mind, which is overwhelmingly facile at creating blocks to avoid hurtful problems," said Dr. Tanya Edwards, director of the Center for Integrative Medicine at the Cleveland Clinic. "In hypnosis, the therapist is dealing with the subconscious mind and can get at core problems more quickly."
Whatever the approach, it's important to find a highly skilled practitioner
"Hypnosis is like a surgeon's knife," said Edward Frischholz, a clinical psychologist in Chicago who has written more than 50 papers on clinical and experimental hypnosis. "In the right hands it can be life-saving, but in the wrong it could cause harm."
There is no universal licensing process for practitioners who do hypnosis, so look for a licensed health professional… for instance, a psychologist, medical doctor or social worker - who has been trained in hypnosis.
