The term “hypnosis” comes from the Greek word Hypnos, meaning “sleep.” Hypnotherapists use exercises that bring about deep relaxation and an altered state of consciousness, also known as a trance. A person in a deeply focused state is unusually responsive to an idea or image, but this does not mean that a hypnotist can control the person’s mind and free will.
On the contrary, hypnosis can actually teach people how to master their own states of awareness. By doing so they can affect their own bodily functions and psychological responses.
What is hypnosis?
The Mosby medical encyclopaedia defines hypnosis as “a passive, trance like state that resembles normal sleep during which perception & memory are changed, resulting in increased responsiveness to suggestions” Historically since centuries hypnosis was used by different civilizations. It’s a trance like state, where one feels extremely relaxed. However all the senses are extra susceptible to the impressions created on them?
Hypnosis is more like a dreamy relaxed state, each one of us naturally experiences hypnosis at least twice a day, i.e., just before falling asleep & soon after we wake up, known as the alpha state. Whilst in this alpha state one is usually fully aware of his/her surroundings at the same time as being deeply relaxed and open to suggestions.
It is a therapeutic modality which uses Hypnosis as its tool to reach clients subconscious mind. All our experiences are stored in the subconscious mind where beliefs are formed & these beliefs can be limiting in nature. Hypnotherapy helps dissolve the blocked emotions and negative limiting beliefs and behaviours which lie behind your physical, mental and emotional problems.
During Hypnotherapy, whilst in a state of Hypnosis, your subconscious mind can be re-programmed’ with positive suggestions, visualisations and some highly effective therapies which will create new empowering beliefs and behaviours, helping you to make the changes you want to make and to reach your full potential.
Apart from Hypnotherapy we also use Age regression and Past Life Therapy as a modality to deal with the various and sometimes unexplained challenges of life. Subconscious mind is the reservoir of all the past experiences whether its form the current past of the past lives that we have had and somewhere without much of the conscious awareness these experiences do form the personality. Someone who is facing challenges like fears, phobias, behavioural issues, low confidence and emotion setback, low feeling etc. does try hard to overcome them but with no substantial change. The main reason for this is that he fail to tap in to the root cause of the issue which lies with the subconscious. With the help of hypnotherapy, age regression and past life therapy we try to reach the root so that the problem can be permanently eliminated from there.
Regression Therapy is a technique that uses hypnosis to recover what practitioners believe are memories of past lives or incarnations, though others regard them as fantasies or delusions or a type of confabulation (Wikipedia). The goal of regression therapy is to isolate emotions specific to certain traumatic events or behaviors and neutralize them so that patient can get past its effects on the physical body and live a harmonious life.
