4 Things You Didn’t Know about Hypnosis
- Hypnosis activates certain parts of the brain. Your brain is less active during TV watching sessions than when you sleep.
- Hypnosis builds a communication bridge between opposite sides of your mind: your conscious and your subconscious, your creative and your analytic brain. When your body becomes relaxed, the conscious side of the mind soon follows suit. The subconscious takes over, allowing you to become suggestionable, think selectively and help all sides of the brain carry a single, beneficial message (such as ‘I do not need to smoke’).
- Hypnosis is the most efficient way to delve into the subconscious, which is the locus where we develop both psychological wounds, and construct malignant behavioral patterns. The subconscious stores opinions formed on the basis of previous experiences, which it then associates into a never-ending chain with other opinions. If those experiences happen to be negative, trauma and stress build up—and they can be successfully released through clinical hypnosis.
- Hypnosis can cause actual, positive change in your life. Numerous patients report better physical performance, increased professional abilities, better dietary and lifestyle habits, as well as improved mechanisms for coping with stress after hypnosis.
