Hypnosis, What Is It?

What is hypnosis? Surrounded by stigma, mystery, and mythology, hypnosis carries a lot of misunderstandings about what it really is. It’s hard to get even the experts, at times, agree on what it is. Some people see it as a relaxed awareness. It can be, doesn’t have to be. If you look at the rallies of Hitler in WWII, you will see anything but a relaxed awareness. Those people were worked into a wild frenzy through hypnotic techniques. Some see hypnosis as some kind of mind control thing, where the subject is trying to resist and the hypnotist breaks down…

How Hypnosis Works To Bypass Your Critical Faculty To Make Positive Changes In Your Mind and Body

Think about your brain as if it were a crowded social gathering like a popular restaurant, bar, or nightclub. Imagine every person in that gathering represents a thought, belief, or experience in your mind. Now, they all seem to be getting along well with each other for the most part. Just like at any popular hotspot there is a line of people waiting to get in. These are also representative of thoughts, beliefs, and experiences. And, like any popular place, there is a guard or bouncer. This is known as the Critical Faculty that you have in your brain. What…

Thermometer or Thermostat: Do You React Or Respond To Things?

A thermometer is controlled by the circumstances and the environment around it. When things in the environment change the thermometer will react by either rising or falling. A thermometer is used to measure what is wrong. It is like the miner’s canary. They used to keep a caged canary down in the mine shaft and would watch to see how it reacted to the environment. If the canary died, the miners would know to get out of there because the gas levels had reached a point of toxicity. Unfortunately, many organizations are full of thermometers today. They are quick to…

Change Happens: Nothing In This World Is Permanent

“Nothing in the world is permanent, and we’re foolish when we ask anything to last, but surely we’re still more foolish not to take delight in it while we have it.” ― W. Somerset Maugham Change Happens In this life, nothing remains constant. Everything changes. Thoughts arise and they go away. People come into our lives and they leave from our lives. You can never put your hand into the same flowing river twice, for the second time the river will be different and so will you. Everything is impermanent, this table I am sitting at, this computer, this room,…

Does the Subconscious Mind Affect Cognitive Behavior?

Does the subconscious mind affect cognitive behavior? The short answer is, “Depends on who you ask.” Just like with most things the thoughts on this are divided. With that said, I think it does. I can only base this answer on my studies and experiences with hypnotherapy sessions I have done personally. According to Dr. Milton H. Erickson, know as the father of modern hypnotherapy, and whose techniques I have studied, it appears there is alway communication between the concious and subconcious, not only in one’s own mind, but between the minds of others, such as the therapist and client.…

Your Thoughts Matter: What You Think and Why Is Important

The quality of your thoughts matter. Do you ever feel like a complete stranger to yourself? Do you ever stop to think about your thoughts? What about critiquing your thought processes? How well do you self-reflect? Do you allow yourself time to clarify your values in a times of uncertainty? I think self-reflection and introspection, examining our thoughts and our mental processes for arriving at those thoughts, are crucial daily disciplines to practice. In order for things to improve, they must improve from within first. Or as Zig Ziglar once said, “There’s just no room for stinkin’ thinkin’.” Here are…
