The Power of Hypnosis.
There are many of studies that have shown how the power of hypnosis can be used to create amazing changes in your life from alleviating pain to creating new behaviours.
Hypnosis has worked for millions of people in the past, continues to work for millions today and it will probably work for you also!
Are you hypnotizable? Can anyone be hypnotized?
First let’s define what hypnosis is?
Hypnosis is a technique that takes you to the hypnotic state. A state of total focused concentration. You put your Critical Faculty (or Critical Factor) aside, in a temporal way). You are able to access your subconscious mind more easily and therefore accept positive suggestions more easily.
Based on that, we at NLP Hypnosis Centre in London, Ontario, Canada say …
“If can concentrate, if you can use your imagination, if you can follow instructions … you can enjoy hypnosis, you can go into the hypnotic state.”
Is there a possibility that you could enter into the deepest states of hypnotic trance? If you are an average person you will most likely think that you can’t be hypnotized. This is normal. The majority of people feel that if it were possible for them to be hypnotized then this, in some way, indicates that they lack any real will-power are naive or of below average intelligence. This could not be further from the truth.
Is not matter of having a higher or lower IQ, is more a matter of concentration and imagination.
The best hypnotic subjects are actually very intelligent, have a great deal of concentration and have a highly developed ability to focus and can use their imagination a lot.
You should also be aware that the hypnotic state is different for each person who enters it. It is a state that can vary from individual to individual. Some people can enter extremely deep states of trance where their awareness completely changes and their memory of the event is hidden when they awaken, while others find themselves in a state that is equal to complete relaxation. Most of us fall somewhere in the middle. Wherever you find yourself on the hypnotic trance scale one thing is for certain everyone can be hypnotized to some degree.
Let’s clarify that hypnosis is not relaxation, a person can be in hypnosis and be dancing and/or running. Of course one of the great benefits of hypnosis is that it can help you to relax and sleep better.
In fact you go into trance states constantly throughout the day. Have you ever been “going through the motions”, just performing a task without any conscious effort and been thinking of something completely different?
If you travel on the bus or train have you found yourself day-dreaming or remembering past events and been so engrossed in your mental image that you lost track of time or your surroundings?
Have you watched a great movie and totally identified with the characters or got so lost in the plot that it was all you were focused on?
Although just entering a hypnotic trance can be very therapeutic, as your body and mind relax and ease tension throughout your whole system, the real power comes from the suggestions and images that are used in this state.
At NLP Hypnosis Centre we believe that the real power of hypnosis is awareness. When you experience hypnosis you become aware of the power of hypnosis … which is the power of your mind.
Suggestions can easily, quickly and permanently alter your behaviour and your dominant thinking about any subject you choose. Through suggestion a hypnotist will, mostly, guide you into a mental rehearsal of the new behaviours. New feelings are also anchored to old memories or a visualized future event in order to retrain your mind and body to respond to certain situations differently.
So are you hypnotizable?
If you can concentrate, if you can use your imagination, if you can follow instructions, yes you are hypnotizable. You can enjoy the hypnotic State.
Well, research shows that the best hypnotic subjects are those people who can easily immerse themselves in any imagined event. This is, in and of itself, a skill that many people in the self improvement field strive very hard to acquire. Hypnotic subjects who can easily enter the deepest, conscious altering, states of trance are those than can easily become absorbed in a fantasy while blocking out their external surroundings.
This basically means the better your imaginative abilities the more profoundly you will experience the hypnotic state.
However, as I have already stated, everyone can be hypnotized and you are no exception! Under the correct conditions you most definitely can and will enter a state of trance.
At NLP Hypnosis Centre we believe everyone can be hypnotized. Of course for some clients is easier for others a little more difficult.
At NLP Hypnosis Centre we say “If you do not experience hypnosis, the session is totally FREE”.
That being said, of course is always import that you consult with your Health Care Practitioner if you are under medical o psychological treatment and want to try hypnosis.
One of the keys is the rapport between the Hypnotist and the person to be hypnotized.
With the right stimuli you can then use this state as catalyst for change in your life. It is possible to remove unwanted behaviours, instil new ones and even program yourself with characteristics and personality traits that you desire.
