What is Hypnosis?

But first, Let's Talk About What Hypnosis Is Not.


We've all seen the movies where a person goes into hypnosis and their world is turned upside down. From Office Space to Stir of Echoes, hypnosis has provided some very funny as well as very scary moments. The truth of the matter is that hypnosis is a much more mundane process with natural explanations.


With your hypnotherapist, you work as a team. S/he is not a deranged Svengali character who will mind control you, but rather a supportive partner to assist in solving the issues you are looking to overcome.


Throughout most hypnosis sessions the client remains attentive to what is going on and is aware of the process. Clients will have the Theory of Mind and hypnosis explained to them as well as have any questions answered.  More importantly however, hypnosis will not open a gateway to a different dimension in which aliens will travel through you to take over the worlkd. Thank goodness. I have enough trouble finding a parking space.


Hypnosis is not mind control. Hypnosis is not magic. Hypnosis cannot make you somebody's slave or zombie. Hypnotic trance itself, does not last forever, but the effect of hypnosis do.

So now, What Hypnosis is


As physical therapy and training can help adjust and modify how a person physically performs, hypnosis is able to help the mind's performance. Hypnosis is merely a way of retraining a person's brain. If you think about it, we all have learned everything that makes us who we are. Not everything we learned is always healthy for us. For example, perhaps you are a smoker. The body and mind had to learn to be a smoker through physcial and mental acting. All hypnosis does is allow the client to get back to that place in the mind and change  perspective on that behavior.


Our unconscious mind handles our every non-conscious thinking activities from breathing to brushing our teeth to all of the mundane things that we do without first thinking about them. Our conscious mind is merely the gateway to the subconscious. It handles our immediate needs. It acts as a filter. It keeps distractions and unimportant things from becoming set and permanent. The mind protects itself. Just as we would instinctively raise our arms to block a flying baseball from hitting us, our minds block things that could be damaging or distracting. Sometimes we need to get around those blocks to change the way we see the world and deal with problems.
