How Hypnosis Helps You

Apr 29, 2008
Hypnosis is an ancient technique used by healing professionals long before medicine became a science. There are times when we hypnotize ourselves, unknowingly.

For instance, while driving to a place, you have a flashback of the journey past and before you realize you reach your destination, not even remembering which turns you took to reach the place. This is called daydreaming or zoning out, but it is merely a form of hypnosis.

Let's gain some insight into the field of hypnosis. What may be learned in the process could turn out to be truly surprising:

All hypnosis is essentially self-hypnosis, therefore, the hypnotherapist is only there to assists you in the process of self-hypnosis. You are conscious during hypnosis and can come out of it anytime you wish. You cannot be induced to do something during the process of hypnotherapy, which you might be uncomfortable doing out of hypnosis.

You need to realize that the conscious mind uses only 10 percent of our minds resources and is our analytical and logical mind that thinks through everything weigh out the pros and cons.

Our subconscious mind is 90% of our mind and it controls our all of our bodily functions from blinking your eyes to your heart beating. The subconscious is also like a child, it is emotional, creative, irrational and intuitive. It is also where your core beliefs about yourself are stored. So if you have a negative outlook that is because it is programmed into your subconscious.

The subconscious mind is always programming and reprogramming itself by self-talk, everyday experiences, encounters and knowledge. Even without realizing it we continuously tell ourselves, we are achievers, failures, loners or misers and so on. These get etched on our subconscious mind. When we normally talk or listen we mainly converse with the conscious mind, however through hypnosis we can establish a direct contact with the subconscious.

Hypnosis is not a medical treatment by itself and hypnotherapist are usually not medical professionals. They cannot give you any treatment for a medical condition, unless supervised by a doctor or a psychiatrist.

Most people are familiar with the fact that hypnosis helps in the cessation of smoking as well as treating life long fears and phobias. However, what most people do not realize is that hypnotherapy can also be used to become better at public presentations, help you pass a test, lower blood pressure, lose weight, help the body to heal and more.

Hypnosis cannot help if there is no mental or emotional aspect to a problem. For example, it cannot make a severed limb re-grow, however it can assist in easing phantom pains which many amputees experience.

Medical and dental professionals have used hypnotherapy to wholly or partially replace chemical anesthesia during surgeries.

Also if hypnosis is used along with anesthesia, doctors can lower the amount of medications needed for surgery. Hypnotic-anesthesia also allows for quicker recovery, shorter hospital confinements and better patient comfort.

It's a good idea to arm yourself with the complete knowledge and understanding of hypnosis. Hypnosis is a great tool in improving the quality of life. Hypnosis helps in combating all psychological problems. You can also reiterate positive self beliefs and avoid negative self-hypnosis.
