What is Hypnosis?
Although most people have heard about hypnosis, many are not sure exactly what it is, how it works and how it could help them. Also there are many myths and misconceptions about its functions and effects.
A definition from the Hypnotherapy Academy of America.
Hypnosis is a natural yet altered state, where the critical factor is bypassed while selective thinking is maintained.
If you have ever watched a television show or movie and became really absorbed into the program, you were probably in a trance. This trance state is what caused you to not hear your mother calling you to dinner, until she raised her voice for the third time.
Another common example of this naturally occurring state of mind is when you are driving down the road, with your mind focused on some other task (a day dream perhaps), and next thing you know, you have passed your next turn. That is called "highway hypnosis".
So now you know that you can be hypnotized.
You have experienced this natural phenomenon literally thousands of times. You did it yourself inducing the hypnoidal state, as you daydreamed and missed that turn (self-hypnosis), you have been hypnotized when you enjoyed a television program (being hypnotized by someone else), and you have followed hypnotic and post-hypnotic suggestions when you preferred some brand name that you saw repeatedly on television over another (hypnotic compounding of suggestion).
Hypnosis (or the Hypnoidal state) is a naturally occurring state of mind which happens to us every day, multiple times a day. Each time we read a captivating novel, float off in a daydream or become engrossed in a movie, we are in a natural state of hypnosis.
Hypnotherapy is the use of the hypnoidal state (the state of Hypnosis), along with specific therapeutic techniques (executed by a properly trained, Certified Hypnotherapist) to overcome issues being experienced and to reprogram the subconscious mind while giving supportive guidance to resolve the most pressing problems. For example: Weight loss, Smoking, Or alcoholism and more.
