The Feeling of Hypnosis
Hypnosis is a normal everyday feeling
Hypnosis is a feeling and we all get this feeling at various times during our normal waking day. The more chilled out and relaxed you are the more you tend to get the feeling of hypnosis.
All the times you have stared blankly with your mind focussed on some idea and you were brought back when someone called you were times when you were experiencing the feeling of hypnosis.
A prime example of everyday hypnosis is a person's behaviour while they are engrossed in something on TV and coming out of hypnosis when they are called out to their dinner . How many times have you found your mind slipping into the feeling when you sat at your desk in class or attended a boring meeting? Then there were the times when you found yourself having to reread a paragraph of a book and each time you did you couldn't remember what you had read.
Hypnosis is commonly a misunderstood feeling
We all recognise the feeling but many people do not associate the feeling with the word 'Hypnosis'. For many people hypnosis is some mystical or magical process used by a hypnotist to take control of a person and make them do strange things for a laugh on stage. It is a shame that many still do not recognise the therapeutic potential of hypnosis in healing.
Hypnosis + Psychotherapy = Analytical Hypnotherapy
The feeling of hypnosis gets you in the frame of mind to make changes that would ordinarily be impossible to achieve. Hypnosis does this by suspending the little voice in your head that analyses everything that is presented to you. What the critical voice might normally dismiss out of hand as complete rubbish is seriously considered while experiencing the feeling of hypnosis. This is where the therapist comes in.
Behind every condition is a belief that perpetuates it and associated with this belief is a repression that anchors you emotionally and keeps you stuck. While you are feeling hypnosis the therapist invites you to question the beliefs that hold a debilitating condition in place and provides you with the opportunity to release the negative emotion that keeps you stuck.
Hypnosis coupled with psychotherapy is a very effective approach to dealing with debilitating conditions created by the mind. The therapy is called Analytical Hypnotherapy or Hypno-Psychotherapy and was the therapy practised by Freud before he decided to concentrate on Psychotherapy without hypnosis.
Psychotherapy or Psychoanalysis without hypnosis just takes longer because the client's critical factor is in place during therapy. Ordinary Psychotherapy can take years to resolve a condition whereas most of the conditions we treat at our private Hypnotherapy Practice take no more than 12 weeks to be resolved.
Learning how to deliberately feel hypnosis
Anyone can learn to deliberately experience the feeling of hypnosis and my wife Mary and I have created our own audio that you can download from our website which teaches you exactly how to hypnotise yourself. We require all our clients to teach themselves how to feel hypnosis by playing this audio for at least a week before commencing therapy so when they arrive for their first session they are already in the frame of mind to make the changes they desire. By teaching themselves how to experience hypnosis they also realise that it is not the therapist who controls them. Link to Audio Downloads Page
