What Is Hypnosis? Is it Real?
A lot of people wonder if hypnosis is even real. If you've ever seen a hypnosis stage show, this is a legitimate question. It looks so surreal that it almost seems fake. Allow me to explain. First of all, only about 25% of the population are what we would call natural somnambulists. These are the people that make great stage show participants because they go really deep, really fast. While it may appear that they're under the control of the hypnotist, it's more like they're sleep walking or playing pretend like a four year old. In this state they are completely free of all inhibitions so they can sing and dance without any concern about what others may think. (kind of like when people karaoke lol)

How Can Hypnosis Be Therapeutic?
While stage hypnosis may not interest you, hypnosis is an extremely powerful tool for making changes in the subconscious mind. You can accomplish in one or two sessions what others sometimes spend years trying to change. All of our emotions, beliefs, behaviors and programming originate in the subconscious mind. By using various language patterns, processes and tools to speak directly to the subconscious mind, change can happen fast and be permanent . Most people get results in just a couple of sessions!!
Hypnosis allows us to get the critical factor out of the way so that verbal suggestions can get into the subconscious mind. The critical factor is like a guard who prevents new, potentially harmful ideas from getting into the operating system. It's kind of like an over protective parent that doesn't allow you to try new things or even make positive changes if they challenge the status quo. Hypnosis allows us to get the critical factor is 'out of the way' so that we can give new instructions to the subconscious mind. Once the these ideas really take hold in the subconscious, changes unfold naturally, easily and automatically.
Ask yourself this question. Would you rather manage your fear and anxiety or simply not feel it any more? This is the difference between treating a problem or as I call it 'white knuckling it through life' and transforming it so life genuinely feels better and easier.
Can Everyone Be Hypnotized?
While not everyone is a natural somnambulist, everyone CAN be hypnotized. Hypnosis is essentially going into an altered state, zoned out or hyper focused state. This occurs when we slow our brain waves down from beta to either alpha or theta. This occurs naturally each and every day to each and every one of us when we go to sleep and when we're day dreaming or 'in the zone'. So the answer is a resounding Yes! Hypnosis is real and everyone can be hypnotized as long as they are willing and able to listen and follow what the hypnotist is saying.
