What is Hypnosis


Hypnosis is a conscious state of sleep

 

 

It appeaser to me that the process, that determines human behavior is always taking place in our brain.


I am convinced that this brain process can be intentionally accessed to change unwanted behavior when in a state of hypnosis.

I define the state of hypnosis as being a conscious state of sleep. In fact, the word hypnosis is a derivation of the Greek word meaning sleep. When in a state of hypnosis our brain is more open to accepting suggestions than in any other state of consciousness.

If a hypnotic subject was not conscious, how would they know or understand a hypnotic suggestion? But that is also the reason a hypnotist cannot make a subject do something that would violate their basic moral or ethical standards—because at every moment the subject is perfectly aware and would reject any suggestion that would be in conflict with their standards.

Hypnosis is a state in which the process for changing behavior works best, but the process is hypnosis! The process is an interaction between our conscious mind and our brain.

Many people falsely believe that while “hypnotized” the subject is unconscious and unaware.

 

Rather than calling the process hypnosis, or hypnotism, I prefer to call it Suggestionism or Perceptionism.


Simply put:  A suggestion is a set of words that creates in the human brain a perception.  Our brain takes the perception, interacts with our neural system, and automatically triggers the behavior based on the suggestion.

Yes, hypnosis is a mental state.  And yes, a person does go into a state of hypnosis. However, just being in a state of hypnosis does not cause anything to happen, until our brain receives a suggestion that creates a perception.

However we don’t need to be in a state of hypnosis for the process to work, it just works best, for changing behavior, when in a conscious state of sleep.

With every client that comes to my office, who wants to make a change in their behavior, I lead them through a series of demonstrations that confirms that their brain will automatically follow and carry out instructions it receives from their mind; and that the only communication between mind and brain are their self-perceptions.

I simply help my clients change their self-perceptions and the new behavior just happens.

 

 

If interested, I would be pleased to help you change your self-perceptions and create a new way of life consistent with the behavior that you would choose for yourself.
