Hypnosis is an extremely powerful tool that can help us overcome fears as well as negative patterns and habits. It can also help to “install” good habits. When in hypnosis, a person is conscious and is aware of their surrounding environment. They will only accept suggestions that they believe are good for them.
MV Coaching provides proprietary mp3s that are intended to help you get greater enjoyment and fulfillment from your life. All you need to do is find a comfortable and safe place where you can completely relax. NEVER listen to hypnosis while driving or while operating machinery. These sessions are relaxing and restorative. If you are uncomfortable for any reason, you can simply open your eyes and return to your regular state. By allowing yourself to completely relax, you can easily make positive changes because your self-conscious mind is more open to suggestions. By having your mind and body in a relaxed state, the subconscious part of your mind (which is exponentially more powerful than your conscious mind) will be better able to accept positive suggestions, which in turn will help you overcome your targeted issue.
In understanding how hypnosis works, it’s important to understand that your mind consists of two components: 1) the conscious mind and; 2) the subconscious mind. The conscious mind has four essential functions: analytical, rationale, willpower, and working memory. The analytical part analyzes and solves problems. It is also the “rational” mind. It will “rationalize,” creating reasons for your behavior. Unfortunately, rational reasoning, despite being logical, is incorrect most of the time, because our true motivation for our behavior and responses stem from our subconscious mind. The conscious mind also controls willpower. Willpower is your ability to control your behavior by stopping and thinking about your actions before acting. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work very well for changing habits because programs in the subconscious mind will “over-write” it. The conscious mind also provides our working memory (short-term memory), which is essential for performing all the functions tht we do throughout a day.
The subconscious mind is infinintely more powerful than our subconscious mind. It greatly affects who we are, how we respond, and what we believe. While awake, our subconscious is not easily accessible. However, is it continuously recording each experience and responding to every experience automatically. In many ways, our subconscious may be compared to a hard drive, or operating system, of a computer. It is programmed by your life experiences, beginning in the womb during pregnancy, so that today you are a sum total of everything that has ever happened to you – including everything you have ever heard (even on tv or on a computer) and everything you have seen (even in your peripheral vision). As a hard drive, your subconscious mind includes databases with all of the stored information from your life’s experiences. Likewise, it is through your subconscious that your beliefs, your likes and dislikes, and your opinions are born. We don’t have to stop and figure out what we believe in to respond to a particular situation. We simply know what we believe to be true, and we react accordingly.
The four components of the subconscious mind include habits, emotions, long-term memory, and self-preservation. When we do the same thing in the same way, with enough repetition, the subconscious mind makes it a habit. A habit is an automatic response, or reminder to respond, to a certain situation in a specific way. For example, if you have a habit of brushing your teeth before you go to bed, then your subconscious mind creates the thought of brushing your teeth as you get ready for bed. Many people have a habit of worry. They will find themselves unconsciously stressing about something before they even get out of bed in the morning. By the time they have been up for 2 hours they have already used up a significant portion of their energy from worry…and this worry is often focused on things which are not even real. When we attempt to overcome a negative habit, our conscious mind uses willpower to initiate the change; however, willpower simply initiates the desire to change, and usually is unsuccessful at eliminating the problem. While our conscious mind finds it difficult to change negative habits, our subconscious minds are able to change disempowering habits into empowering ones with the help of hypnosis.
The second part of our subconscious is our emotional mind. We have feelings about everything in our lives, but most of the time these emotions, buried deep in our subconscious, are below our conscious awareness. When something triggers an emotion, the subconscious opens up and we feel that emotion consciously. As humans, we experience a full range of emotions. Through hypnosis, we can change our attitudes and beliefs--and thus, our emotional responses. It is possible to reduce guilt, anger, hatred, and resentment, opening us up to experience more emotions such as joy, peace, confidence and happiness more consistently.
Our subconscious also provides our long-term memory, recording impressions of everything we have ever done, seen, heard, tasted, smelled, or imagined. Amazingly, our subconscious mind never forgets our experiences. Every impression is stored somewhere in your subconscious mind, and through hypnosis we can recall or re-experience past experiences. This can be very helpful in getting rid of blocks, fears, and unwanted behaviors.
Lastly, within our subconscious mind is our protective or self-preserving mind. Its job is to protect us against danger, both real and imagined. A perfect example is a person with a phobia or a fear. In such an instance, the subconscious mind is using the powerful emotion of fear to try to protect you from what it believes to be dangerous. Physiologists have proven that something imagined in detail by your subconscious mind affects you just as powerfully as if it actually happened to you, and the inner mind cannot tell the difference. Hypnosis can use the imagination to help you “install” positive experiences in your subconscious mind, and ultimately, help you overcome a phobia/irrational fear or to create a positive habit. Hypnosis is simply about making a change in the subconscious mind. When a positive suggestion is allowed to go into your subconscious mind, it changes the beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors that you would like to improve.
So, how does a suggestion enter your subconscious? How does hypnosis help you? Within the conscious mind, there is something called the “critical factor,” which operates automatically. Acting as a critic or a judge of all suggestions presented to you, the critical factor protects the status quo of your beliefs in your subconscious mind. When you hear a suggestion, the critical factor checks with the subconscious mind to see if that suggestion is in agreement with your existing beliefs. If it is in agreement, then the suggestion is allowed to enter your subconscious, and that belief is strengthened. If it is not, the suggestion is rejected, and there is no change. Through hypnosis, the critical factor of the conscious mind can be bypassed in order to allow the door to the internal subconscious to open.
In other words, it is getting the thoughts, ideas, concepts, and feelings that you CHOOSE into your subconscious. Hypnosis is like re-programming the hard-drive of your mind, in accordance with how you would like it to be. By simply relaxing and listening, you allow yourself to be guided into a relaxed, yet aware state, and the positive suggestions can correct the problem. While hypnotized and working with your subconscious mind, your conscious mind is still able to hear and react to stimulants in your environment. You will hear, speak, and make decisions in the process of receiving positive suggestions. Actually, all of your five senses become sharper, keener, and more powerful. Your ability to decide what you will and will not do, or what you will or will not accept is much stronger. Also, when you are in a hypnotic state, the mental attitude you hold when you hear a suggestion determines whether or not it enters into your subconscious mind. If you do not really want to accept a suggestion, you will reject it. By contrast, if you like the suggestion and believe it will enhance your life, you will trust it to be allowed into your subconscious mind, thereby creating change. A doubtful mindset, such as “I like that suggestion; I sure hope it works,” is not effective. You must have some excitement or passion about the intention. When the mind thinks and hears the word hope, it is directly linked to doubt, and doubt rejects the suggestion. For instance, if you hope hypnosis going to work, you truly don’t believe it works, and you are instructing your own mind to reject any positive suggestions given. On the other hand, if you want the change and focus on the suggestion with a positive attitude, trusting that it will work, the suggestion will be accepted and positive change will happen. Trusting and believing in hypnosis is the first step to creating the change that you want.
Contrary to the general perception of hypnosis, a hypnotic state is a natural state of mind. You are going in and out of hypnosis all day long. Actually, it is surprising how many times your critical factor is being bypassed everyday. For example, we’ve all heard of highway hypnosis, when you’re driving down the road and you don’t remember driving the last block or maybe the last several miles or perhaps you missed your turn. That’s because while you were daydreaming, your subconscious mind took over driving for your own protection. Another example, television, is one of our greatest hypnotists. While engaged in a show, we often zone out, and relax to such an extent, that sometimes we ignore things going on around us. Add to that, the fact that advertisers know everything hypnotists know about bypassing your critical factor. Advertisers use that knowledge to suggest to you or to hypnotize you into buying their products. All kinds of people bypass your critical factor. Anytime you are feeling a strong emotion such as love or fear, anger or grief, you are more open to suggestions. Things said to you, or things you say to yourself, will bypass your critical factor, becoming part of your subconscious programming. You don’t have to be in any kind of relaxed state at all to accept suggestions. These types of behaviors are called waking hypnosis, and it happens everyday.
