Your Mind

 

 

Hypnosis

 

"The mind is like an iceberg, it         floats with one-seventh of its           bulk  above water."

   

         Sigmund Freud (1856-1939)

Similar to the iceberg, the conscious mind occupies 5% of your mind.

It:

     Analyzes,

    Thinks and plans,

    Accesses short-term memories.

 

On the other hand, the unconscious mind occupies 95% of your mind.

It contains:

    Long-term memories,

    Emotions and feelings,

    Habit patterns, relationship patterns, addictions,

    Involuntary bodily functions,

    Creativity,

    Developmental stages,

    Spiritual connection,

    Intuition. 

     

Relaxation

 

Hypnosis is a treatment where the client becomes relaxed and slips into a much deeper, more pervasive level of awareness. 

 

​Hypnosis then provides access to a unique state of consciousness where emotional learning takes place.  In that relaxed state, material from the unconscious will emerge.

 

 

Examples of When You Experienced Hypnosis Without Your Awareness

 

  • When you are driving in a snowstorm and you become mesmerized with the snowflakes on your windshield.                                                                                 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • When you are absorbed in reading a great book or involved in watching a movie and you lose track of time.

 

  • When you drive home from work, turn into your driveway, and you don't remember driving there.

 

  • Most of us enter hypnotic states everyday--whenever we've been on automatic pilot.
