Achieving Your Maximum Potential Through Hypnosis
Hypnosis provides a means of harnessing this power to achieve self-mastery.
Hypnosis is a powerful and effective method of bringing out changes in important areas of life: emotional stability, developing a healthy life-style, eliminating bad habits, stress and pain management and many others.
It has been stated by psychologists that every human has the same goal - the achievement of self-actualization, the reaching of maximum potential.
When used in a clinical environment it is highly successful in locating the source of problems, thereby reducing the time of treatment.
What is Hypnosis? Most people, though unaware, have experienced hypnosis.
Daydreaming is a form of hypnosis.
Becoming deeply involved in a book, movie, television program, etc.
is also a form of hypnosis.
Arriving at a destination without remembering well-known landmarks is a form of hypnosis.
Hypnosis is NOT sleep.
It is NOT unconsciousness.
It is often referred to as an altered state of consciousness, where the conscious mind is attending to other things, allowing the body to operate on what could be called "auto-pilot".
What is Self-Hypnosis? It is true that all hypnosis is self-hypnosis.
An individual who does not wish to be hypnotized will not be hypnotized.
A person who wants to be hypnotized can be hypnotized either by a professional or by self.
Learning self-hypnosis is not difficult and the required skill improves with each experience.
While hypnosis is powerful and effective in hypnotherapy, psychology, psychiatry and other professional fields, it can also produce dramatic results when used individually by those who master the techniques of self-hypnosis.
Self-hypnosis has proved highly successful in learning enhancement, information retention, stress and pain management and many, many other areas of personal concern.
Self-hypnosis is also used by Olympic contenders in many nations.
The four elements of achieving a state of hypnosis include the following: Fixation: Fixation clears the mind to prepare it for the work to follow.
Relaxation: It is necessary to divert the mind from conscious thoughts through relaxation to enable the unconscious mind to absorb or provide information.
Suggestion: Instructions are implanted into the unconscious mind through suggestions to enable change and achieve the desired goals.
Visualization: Imagining or visualizing is the power source to achieve the desired goal.
Everyone has access to a tremendous source of power, available on demand, once it is understood and properly utilized.
However, an important note when learning self-hypnosis is that the user of self-hypnosis invariably fares better when taught by a professional than when attempting experimentally from written instructions.
