What is Hypnosis FAQs?
To begin to provide you some of the FAQs about hypnosis let’s start with a definition. According to Webster’s Dictionary, it is “a trance-like state that resembles sleep but is induced by a person whose suggestions are readily accepted by the subject.” This and the myriad of other definitions don’t do much to dispel the mystery that surrounds this ancient art, so here’s another way to look at it:
Your mind basically works on two levels: the conscious and subconscious. Your conscious mind brought you to this website, but your subconscious mind was likely in control the last time you drove your car. It kept you from running red lights, rear-ending the car in front of you, and even successfully navigated back to your home while you were busy figuring out what to fix for dinner or planning your activities for the next day. In other words, it is your trusty autopilot. It is also largely responsible for controlling your habits.
What is hypnosis vs clinical hypnosis?
At Arizona Family Hypnosis we specialize in clinical hypnosis. We use hypnosis to make changes in positive body functions and align a persons emotional focus to allow a more positive outcome. Clinical hypnosis is another way one can direct their body and minds to work together to achieve a more beneficial outcome.
By means of an induction, a hypnotist quiets the conscious mind while speaking to the subconscious mind. With the use of powerful suggestions, the subconscious is “reprogrammed” to change bad habits or encourage good ones. Not only is it safe (you can’t be hypnotized to do something you don’t want to do) but it’s powerful! Just think – if you didn’t have a lot of faith in your subconscious mind, would you continue to let it drive your car every day?
I’ve heard hypnosis helps eliminate bad habits.
Simply put, hypnosis is a very relaxed state where your mind is focused and it is very receptive to suggestions that allow you to change bad habits. Bad habits like:
- Smoking cigarettes
- Chewing and biting your nails
- Pulling on your hair
- Picking on your skin or nails
- Making poor choices (again and again)
- Losing your temper (again and again)
- Dating losers (perhaps again and again?)
- Compulsive spending
- Eating fattening foods
- Abusing drugs
- Sitting on your butt, being lazy
- Drinking too much alcohol
- Having panic like attacks
- Crying and overreacting
- Being late
- ……The list goes on and on and on
What happens during a session?
Should you elect to continue after your free consultation, you will find yourself relaxing in a comfortable recliner, listening to soothing background music (or sounds) in the clinic’s pleasant and private room. There is really nothing for you to do but sit back, relax, and let the Hypnotist guide you on this peaceful journey.
The Hypnotist uses a technique that engages your imagination, concentration and expectations so that you will accept positive suggestions while in a deeply relaxed and alert state. Your mind will reject any suggestions that are not in your best interest.
During the intake and subsequent visits you will be working closely with the Hypnotist, allowing her to create effective suggestions that will bring you the greatest benefit towards reaching your goals and achieving success.
Who can be hypnotized?
About 95% of the population is hypnotizable.
Can you get stuck in hypnosis?
Will I know what is going on during the session?
Yes. You are alert and aware at all times.
I’ve never been hypnotized and I am afraid of hypnosis.
Hypnosis is a normal and natural state. You probably experience a very mild form of hypnosis every day. When you daydream, feel drowsy, become engrossed in a good book and even sometimes when you are watching a show you are feeling light hypnosis.
Someone wants me to change, but I’m not ready. Can I make changes for someone else?
No. Hypnosis only works if you want to see improvements in your life. The session is about you and finding a way to help you achieve your dreams, desires and wishes. A willingness and desire to make changes is absolutely required and it doesn’t work if you aren’t ready. I can’t make you do anything, and neither can anyone else, if you don’t want to. But if you have a real desire to change, then hypnosis can help and is a very effective tool.
I’m afraid I might lose control and do/say things I will regret?
You cannot do anything against your will. That is why coming to the session with a willingness to make to make the desired changes is so crucial
What part of my mind does hypnosis work on and how?
The subconscious mind. Hypnosis is a safe and effective way to gently quiet the conscious mind so that the subconscious mind can accept and adopt new habits.
Will I be asleep?
