Secrets of Hypnotherapy


We are having better winter without severe coldness or snow in New York City in this winter.

I hope that everyone is having easier time in this world at this moment.

I want to talk about basic ideas of hypnotherapy today because I find day by day that hypnosis is such a mysterious and unknown topic for ordinary people.

Because of the odd sounding word of hypnosis, people use more and more “subconscious” instead. However subconscious and hypnosis are almost identical in scientific point of views.

In successfully performed hypnosis, people should be in the state of subconscious. Subconscious is out of ordinary state that humans get on. Of course, if the subconscious was the ordinary state, it should be called “conscious” then.

The extra ordinary state called subconscious that it visits us actually a few times a day randomly in daily basis.

Probably you are using the random subconscious when you got great ideas or realizations in your life.

If you want to make randomly visiting subconscious happen to you on purpose or whenever you want, you would need some efforts. It is called “induction”.

Induction is a process to lead the being to the subconscious state and it takes only body and mind relaxation in my opinion.

I hear a lot of successful people meditate in daily basis. It depends on how deep you can go though meditation is very similar to being in subconscious state.

When you are used to meditated state, you could come up with great ideas in the meditation because not only you may be using subconscious then, but also you could get onto subconscious state even easier or more frequently within random occurrence of subconscious to you in daily basis.

Or/and, familiarity to subconscious state will bring you deeper subconscious state or/and mastering the best effect usage skills of subconscious should be possible in the situation.

And induced subconscious state is called “hypnosis”, as a matter of fact. When we make subconscious state happens to us without random occurring and stay there for a while for a purpose is called hypnosis or hypnotized state.

Thus random occurring subconscious state and hypnotized state are almost identical. In function too that we can use up to 95% of our brain in the subconscious instead of 5% we normally do in our conscious. Our brain operating speed will be 1,000,000 times faster in “subconscious” than “conscious”.

Subconscious is very powerful with high functioned brain too. Thus being in subconscious state may consume extra energy and it may make you tired when you use subconscious state excessively.

Thus being in subconscious state too long would be hard to do such as being in meditated state too long. A lot of concentration and focus will be required if you try to stay in the special states.

The situation was different when I was performing therapy in the conscious level as a psychotherapist in the past. In my hypnotherapy practice now, no clients come to therapy every week for years at all or it is surprising for my clients to find themselves without tremendous relief from the first session.

In my practice now, 9 out of 10 clients experience significant and positive mood changes in first session.
