Is Subliminal Hypnosis Right for You?
What do you think about when you hear the word hypnosis? Many people think that hypnosis is something to be feared. However there are many myths about hypnosis that are passed around that are not necessarily true. When you understand the truth about hypnosis then you are sure to see the amazing possibilities of improving many aspects of your life.
Hypnosis has been around for centuries. Some anthropologists have suggested that the most influential people in ancient Egypt used hypnosis to cure common ailments. Hypnotists were said to have access to a higher power and were very well revered.
The ancient Hindus also have been known to use hypnosis for curing illnesses. Anthropologists have discovered secret texts that show how the Hindu’s used hypnosis in their daily life.
Hypnosis is now finding it’s way into modern society. It is becoming well known in medical circles as a potential aid in healing for many medical conditions. Even well respected medical journals are publishing articles on the possibilities of hypnosis. Associations such as the American Medical Association and the American Psychological Association have recognized hypnosis as a possible avenue for confronting illness.
Qualified hypnotherapists are using hypnosis as an alternative treatment for a wide variety of cases. Some examples include phobias, weight loss, smoking cessation, depression and even to increase self-esteem and self-confidence. The list goes on from there.
Out of the many types of hypnotherapy treatments available one of the most common methods is referred to as Conversational Hypnosis.
So, just what is conversational hypnosis anyway? It’s a technique that uses facial expressions, carefully selected words and stories to effectively communicate with the patient’s subconscious. It’s a stealth technique that sneaks past the conscious mind.
Conversational hypnosis is most effective when used for phobias and for behavioral problems. It works on the subconscious level to introduce the wanted outcome or result. For example if a person is having difficulty quitting smoking, then the hypnotherapist might introduce a phrase suggesting how easy it is to quit smoking. Or how great it feels to be smoke free. These techniques can indeed shift one’s consciousness and change a negative pattern of behavior into a more positive pattern of behavior.
Perhaps one of the greatest benefits of hypnosis is that it is virtually painless! Also it feels to the patient that it is effortless. Not only that, change can occur very, very quickly and sometimes even immediately..
Although it is beneficial to seek out a qualified hypnotherapist for serious illness and problems , hypnosis techniques can also be learned and self applied. This is commonly referred to as self-hypnosis. There are many courses and books offered on this subject that provide excellent instruction. Of course each individual is different and may have different results. It’s important to seek out the type of treatment you feel good about and follow your own intuition when making choices in regards to your own health.
All in all, hypnosis is a technique that has been around for centuries and has been effective in reducing symptoms and illness in safe, effective and painless ways. Next time you’re confronted with a health issue or phobia , consider hypnosis as an avenue for your healing.
