About Hypnosis

Let’s start off with explaining the Conscious & Subconscious mind:


To understand the relationship of the conscious mind as it relates to the subconscious mind I will use this analogy.


Imagine the captain of a submarine as the conscious mind. The captain is the one who makes all of the decisions in regards to destination and maneuvering. He is the only one who sees where he is going through the periscope. On the other hand, the large crew that are actually navigating the submarine would be similar to the subconscious mind. The crew react to all of the orders given by the Captain. Since they cannot see where they are going, they must rely completely on the decision making capabilities of the Captain. They are unable to make proper decisions on their own independently and their function is to simply react to the commands of the captain and follow his instructions.


This is how the mind works. The conscious mind is completely in charge and makes all the decisions. The purpose of the subconscious mind is to react immediately to the commands that are given to it from the conscious mind and rely on its decision making capabilities completely.


The subconscious mind is where the power comes from and without it the submarine will not function. The subconscious mind is subject to the conscious mind.


Back to Hypnosis:


All hypnosis is self hypnosis, in other words a therapist is like a GPS. We will give you instructions and you as the driver follow these instructions, but remain in control at all times, meaning that you can bypass my instructions if you wish.


What people don’t realise is that every one of us experiences a hypnotic state on a daily basis. From the moment you wake up in the morning until you go to sleep, you would have passed through numerous hypnotic phases where your mind is so focused on one thing that you are unaware of your surroundings. Like being engrossed in a book and not hearing someone calling your name. Or perhaps waking up in the middle of the night, thirsty, but not getting up to drink water. Your mind is awake and telling you to drink water, but your body is asleep. It is at this point that you are in a natural hypnotic state.


At this point your subconscious is highly receptive to suggestions, but only those that are acceptable to you.
