Truth #5: Hypnosis works below the level of conscious thinking.
Hypnosis is a guided altered state of consciousness that enables you to gain access to your subconscious mind.
It's a well-known fact that our conscious minds are limited to retaining only seven pieces of information at a time, whereas the subconscious mind has unlimited capacity. As such, hypnosis helps you discover the hidden motivations behind the things you do or the reason why you have certain limiting beliefs about yourself.
This means you become aware of things that you've not been aware of before—leading to powerful insight!
Once you understand what your brain is doing to keep you trapped in behaviours you don’t want in your life, you're able to make quick and significant changes.
Truth #6: Hypnosis works for nearly every issue.
As you become aware through hypnosis of things you weren’t aware of before, you gain important insights and mental clarity.
These insights help you feel more empowered and confident in everything you do, and can help you achieve your goals—whether it's to lose weight, stop smoking, overcome bad habits, relieve stress and anxiety, manage pain or to deal with many other common, everyday issues.
Moreover, there are absolutely no negative effects from hypnosis. It is a natural, safe process that allows you to feel relaxed, calmer and, as a result, more confident in yourself and your abilities to change the things you want to change.
Although hypnosis does not cure disease, it can be used to diminish pain that's linked to stress or conditions for which traditional approaches have failed. This is because hypnosis works directly with the autonomic nervous system, which controls many of the body's functions.
Just the simple act of relaxation through hypnosis can create great improvements throughout your mind and body.
