What is Hypnosis?
Everyone has been hypnotized at one time or another. When the avid computer games player plays his game while eating popcorn or when we drive to a destination and on arriving, we wonder how we got there. These are just a couple of instances where we could have experienced hypnosis.
Most of us think of the stage scenario where a man is made to act like a chicken when hypnotized. I would like to dispel the myth that the man does not know that he is acting like a chicken or that he won’t remember acting like one once he’s out of trance.
He does in fact know exactly what he is doing and chooses to act, as he does willingly… this is stage Hypnosis and the Hypnotist ensures that the audience has a good show!
Hypnosis occurs when your brain is doing one thing and your body another. Your mind is made up of the conscious and subconscious. The conscious part is what we are aware of and is the critical factor, filtering information as it is received.
Hypnosis occurs when we bypass the critical factor and directly access the subconscious part of the mind. Whatever is received in the subconscious is acted on physiologically, psychologically or behaviorally.
Our brain is a neural network, like the hardware of a computer and it is reliant on the information that it receives from the subconscious. Our subconscious provides the software for the brain, to act on. In hypnosis we are able to change the software program to attain a desired effect for that positive change.
