Hypnosis is a state of mind in which an individual is in the alpha state. This is the state of mind that a person is in when they are meditating, daydreaming or just falling asleep or awakening. Some people call it a deep state of relaxation.
In the state of hypnosis a person is allowing their conscious mind to take a “back seat” so that their subconscious mind can come forward. The subconscious mind is that part of a person that holds certain beliefs and habit patterns that we learned in life, especially childhood…….or even carried forward into this lifetime from a previous incarnation. These beliefs and habit patterns can be detrimental at times, such as the belief that “I am not good enough” or “No one will ever love me”, or getting involved in dysfunctional relationships or negative family patterns. In hypnosis we can give suggestions to the subconscious that would be of benefit to the client. It is similar to using positive affirmations, but on a much deeper level. We are healing and releasing the thought forms, belief systems and emotions that an individual no longer needs to hold onto and allowing new and more positive energies and beliefs to take their place.
