Hypnosis as explained by Jason Sandler

When you mention Hypnosis, most people think of being made a fool of on a stage at a Hypnosis show.

But there is so much more.

What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis is nothing more and nothing less than a deep state of relaxation.

If you have an understanding of what Hypnosis is then you will realise that it is not something that you need to fear, in fact most people, once they have experienced hypnosis, can not wait to go to that awesome place again as it feels so good and tranquil when you are there.

The first thing that you need to understand is that humans are not only, as we learn in school, divided into two; the head and the body; which are then sub divided into many sections ranging from skin to muscles and the brain into right and left hemisphere.

There is another part of us, a part called the mind.
Now the mind is divided into four parts:

1. Super Conscious Mind
This is the part of your mind where all your memories are stored. Now we all know that to say that everything that has ever happened to you and every experience that you have ever had is in your memory. But the truth is that what memories we do hold onto and remember are those that are Significant Emotional Experiences (SEE).

Everything that we are aware and unaware of that has played a role in developing who and what we are is a SEE in our lives. It is these that we have stored in our Super Conscious Mind. Sometimes we have one of our senses stimulated and a thought or memory comes to us. Something that we may not have thought of for years.

What does the smell of fresh baked bread remind you of?
What memories come back to us when we go to a wedding?

2. Sub or Unconscious Mind
The proper term is the Unconscious, but we seem to associate that word with being knocked out, so the name that is more accepted by the public is the Subconscious Mind. This is the part of us that does all the things that we do without thinking about it. We often say well it is just a habit. The Subconscious Mind is continually learning, it learns via two paths - repetition and repetition!

Think back to when you first drove a car - jerky was it not? The panic when you came to a red traffic light that you would not stall the car. Do you remember all the thoughts that went through your mind? Take your foot off the accelerator; push in the clutch; brake; hold the steering wheel straight; turn on the indicator; and many more. Yet today? Do you even think these thoughts when you are driving? I suspect not. After you went through this thought pattern a dozen or so times your Subconscious Mind went: Wait a moment every time I see the traffic light going red I perform all these actions, so from now on when ever I see it going red I will automatically do them.

And WOW a new habit has been formed!

3. Conscious Mind
So what is the Conscious Mind then?

It is that part of us that is aware of what we are doing. It is our everyday thought patterns. An example to explain it so easily is: Our Subconscious Mind "reads" our body and decides that we are thirsty, it is the conscious mind that we use to decide what it is that we are going to drink.

4. Discursive Mind
When you go into 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.

It is this part of our minds that make us imagine thing such as worst case scenarios.

The Discursive Mind can not be "shut down", but it can be embraced and in that way a level of control over it can be implemented. Examples of famous people who have embraced their Discursive Mind are: Quentin Tarentino and Steven King.

The best way to describe how the different parts of your mind work together is by telling a story.

It's late at night and you are fast asleep, knowing that your Sub-conscious Mind never sleeps, but all the others do shut down.

Your Sub-conscious Mind hears glass break, it analyzes the noise and decides if it is important enough to wake the Conscious Mind, and you will either sleep through it or wake with a start, the start is the Conscious Mind going - I heard glass breaking, as your Conscious Mind wakes so does the Super Conscious and the Discursive minds. The Super Conscious remembers what happened before when glass broke, the Conscious Mind wonders what it was the Discursive Mind goes someone is breaking in I'm going t o be robbed, rapped and murdered, the Subconscious Mind goes "I don't know, but I heard glass breaking. The Conscious wants to investigate; the Discursive says what if the person has a gun. And so it goes on until you find that the sound of the glass breaking was a drinking glass that was knocked off the table by your cat. The Super Conscious remembers when something like this had happened before; the Conscious mind recognises it as a glass and logically understands why it broke; the Subconscious Mind goes see I told you I heard glass breaking and the Discursive Mind wants to put the broken glass into the cat's food.

Now I am an animal lover and don't want to harm cats, but this is just an exceptionally easy way to understand how the different levels of the mind interact with each other.

So let's go back to the original question - What's Hypnosis?

As mentioned earlier it is a deep state of relaxation, when you are relaxed the critical part of your conscious mind goes into a relaxed state, so that you can accept all ideas and suggestions that are given to you, so long as you know that it is for your own good.

All humans have 5 commonly accepted senses, namely sight, hearing, taste, smell and touch.

Only in the movies do you become a brain dead zombie, in reality you feel exactly as " normal" except for two things.

Firstly you will feel extremely relaxed. Almost at that state where your eyes are closed and you are half dreamy but still aware of what's going on around you. And secondly your eyes will be closed as this is the only sense that we can so to speak turn off.

Many people refer to the feelings of hypnosis as a floating feeling especially after having experienced hypnosis on a regular basis.

Hypnosis can be measured on a scale of 1 - 10.

When you are fully aware it is a number one. Most people go to a slight trance state the first time that they are hypnotised, a 2 ½ , and this is ok as you will find that each and every time you listen to the CD you will allow yourself to go deeper and deeper, sleepier and sleepier. This is due to many reasons, but the most easily understood are the following:

1. In the beginning of the hypnosis I tell you that it does not matter how deep you went the last time, you will allow yourself to go even deeper this time.

2. At the end of the hypnosis I leave you with a post hypnotic suggestion that the next time you choose to allow yourself to be hypnotized you will go even deeper than this time.

3. You will get more and more comfortable with the process and therefore relax into it even more.

4. The sound of my voice gets imbedded into your sub-conscious mind and you will due to the suggestion find my voice very soothing and comforting.

So, are you ready to easily and effortlessly unlock the full potential of your mind?
