What is hypnosis? Hypnosis is the oldest and most natural mode of healing known to man, it is considered to be a potent and safe adjunct to medicine as well as an effective procedure in psychotherapy.
Many of us have been confused about Hypnosis after watching various TV shows giving us the impression Hypnosis is a state where we lose control of our decision making mechanism. This is far from the truth. Hypnosis is a state of light or deep trance, a relaxed state where suggestions go directly to the unconscious bypassing our critical faculty or differently said, our judgment and analyzing mind AND we are still in control at all times.
There are many different definitions and here are a few that capture the essence of Hypnosis and its immense value:
‘Hypnosis is largely a question of your willingness to b receptive and responsive to ideas, and to allow these ideas to act upon you without interference. These ideas we call suggestions’ – Weitzenhoffer & Hilgard
‘Hypnosis is a state of intensified attention and receptiveness to an idea or a set of ideas’ – Erickson
‘Hypnosis is an altered state within which suggestions have a peculiarly potent effect’ Bowers
You may find that Hypnosis helps you gaining more self-confidence, build your self-esteem, be comfortable with your feelings, increase your energy level and much more. Writing your own powerful scripts can become an indispensable tool for inner growth and peace of mind.
Life Spheres is an Approved Institute for Hypnosis by the American Board of Hypnotherapy and all participants of Life Spheres NLP Practitioner and Master NLP Practitioner Certification Programs also certify on the respective Hypnosis level.
