Hypnosis - What thoughts or feelings does this word conjure up for you? It is certainly a topic that provokes a variety of responses. If you ponder on the topic of hypnosis it will probably become clear how little is known or understood about the subject, even though hypnosis has been practiced for a long time. Hypnosis has been shrouded in myths and misconceptions, especially as a result of early filmmakers who took advantage of the public's lack of knowledge of hypnosis.
I am sure we are all familiar with the stage hypnotists and the entertainment that they provide. Though this gives us a glimpse of the power of the unconscious mind, we may get the illusion that the subject is under the control or "spell" of the hypnotist. This illusion creates mystery and helps for an exciting and entertaining show.
It is time hypnosis is seen in its true light and becomes free of the shroud of mystery and misunderstanding
Clinical hypnosis is not widely known and this use of hypnosis is sadly lacking public awareness of the profound possibilities for enhancing everyday life.
Most of us have an awareness that hypnosis is employed with excellent results for those wishing to lose weight or to quit smoking, however, this is the tip of the iceberg, so to speak. Hypnosis has been shown to be very effective in many areas such as chronic illnesses, anxiety, sleep problems, anorexia, bulimia, pain management, stress relief, and phobias.
Clinical hypnosis can be very effectively used to unmask the cause of chronic diseases such as cancer and it is imperative to stop the disease process and remove the cause and then empower the self-healing system.
There are many methods and styles of hypnosis based on various philosophies. At Heal Your Cancer, we view hypnosis as one of many tools we utilize to coach or train our clients to transform their unconscious limitations and to utilize their own abilities, skills, potential, and capabilities. Benefits that naturally flow from this work are increased confidence, freedom from inner conflict, calmness, and success in achieving their goals.
Hypnosis - the art of communicating and utilizing the deeper subconscious areas of our mind is invaluable in gaining greater awareness of ourselves and our behaviors.
I see hypnosis and hypnotherapy becoming indispensable to the corporate and business sectors which demand top performance from their executives. In this fast-paced and changing climate, having the ability to perform with mental calmness, without inner turmoil and stress leads to a happier and more successful life. We could all do with some calming de-stressing.
