Better At It Than You Think

Ever caught yourself in a daydream?

Eyes wide open.

But your mind in a different time and place?

That’s more what hypnosis is like than the whole bark like a chicken or cluck like a dog thing.

The truth is we’re all better at hypnosis than we think we are, though may not recognize it when it naturally occurs.

Hypnosis is closely related to the hypnoidal stage of sleep we all pass through each time we fall asleep.

And this relaxed state happens to be conducive to learning.

That’s right.

And because we humans tend to have at least a few things we need to unlearn, sometimes the first thing we need to do is de-hypnotize you.

Hypnosis is simply a focused yet relaxed state that helps you move beyond the things that trip you up.

I’ve seen it work when everything else fails. Which is what happened for me.

What is hypnosis?

It’s like opening a door between the two parts of your mind- emotional and mental.

See, the brain wants to make sense of things.

So when something happens, the mental mind dips into those old emotional files for answers.

You can see how this causes problems.

And this is why we react in the same old ways even when it no longer makes sense.

I’ll give an example.

Say you were bitten by a dog as a youngster.

Your emotional mind begins repeating the idea: dog = threat.

So without reprocessing that original event, your heart may race. You may want to run.

One day, you recognize that there’s no actual threat. But you can’t seem to stop the original response.

Hypnosis activates the same part of your mind which allows that old emotional file be deleted and replaced.

Once old emotional memories are reprocessed, you can emerge with new perspectives, beliefs, and behaviors.

Dogs will no longer cause your heart to race and make you want to run.

Which, of course, brings peace.

May not be as entertaining as stage hypnosis…

But this kind of hypnosis changes lives for the better.

Not to mention, it’s perfectly enjoyable!

As my life unfolds, as more and more things start to come together, I feel compelled to share what I create and am inspired by. I am so grateful for the seemingly random artists and seekers I've found on my journey who have helped me on my way that I wish to do the same for others.
