In several posts of mine I wrote about the source of the heart based power which I see in heartfelt emotions. Whatever is in your heart, nourished as a dear and strong emotion, will eventually come to pass. Nothing can disturb your determination and clarity, because your state of mind may be likened to a hypnotic trance. So you might wonder: What is the secret of hypnosis? In the following paragraphs you’ll learn the key elements how to get access to the subconscious mind.
Heartfelt emotions create the reality you perceive.
And you may ask yourself sometimes, if there’s a special force or a hidden wisdom which is only at the disposal of a few people whereby they’re able to overcome obstacles and meet exceptional success. Here I’m going to show that most of us can tap into this hidden potential. This is probably the best kept secret about who we are and what we can carry out as human beings.
Without any doubt we can call our thoughts and imaginations the main force which drives us to create our factual life. We could go even so far as to say that they are the root cause of reality. Now the big problem and at the same time great luck is the fact that our thoughts and imaginations originate from our subconscious mind influenced by our psychogenic field.
Subconscious Mind – Key For Change
The psychogenic field is a specific energetic activity of our brain, we can measure with biofeedback devices like the emWAve which I’m using. If we want to improve our live’s quality we have to learn how deal with our subconscious mind together with its determining psychogenic field. Working with a biofeedback device can support the preparation for hypnosis which can only be reached in a relaxed state of mind.
No doubt, there are many books about the classical aspects of hypnosis, suggestion or mental training. Much more difficult is it to get sound elaborations on the daily aspect of the hypnotic phenomenon as it is found in political organizations and parties, among mass events, in the secret service, in religious sects and finally in our family life, i.e. in our regular relationships. From that point of view hypnosis affects all of us.
Hypnosis – Gateway To The Subconscious
Modern science has just begun to research and investigate the sheer endless possibilities of the human mind to use it primarily for the improvement of the individual performance especially among top-ranking athletes. The stunning results are available now for the broad public. Basically there’s no difference in dealing with a borderline situation, be it in professional sport, be it in daily life.
The basic insight states that we can prepare in advance for those borderline situations through a specific training. It’s all about dealing with fear, stage fright, nervousness and lack of concentration. Thus athletes as well as top managers can prepare themselves in advance for competitive and difficult tasks.
Proof – Walking Over Fire
Nowadays everybody, no matter how old they are, can apply this knowledge in order to overcome stressful situations with as much calmness, strength and ease as possible and with as little tension, effort and exhaustion as necessary. The time for regeneration becomes much shorter and the chance for psychosomatic illnesses decreases. The overall self security and confidence are much stronger.
As a proof these methods work in everyday life, I’ll describe a spectacular experiment, that is to say: walking over fire. A friend of mine has done it, and if I had a chance I would do it too right away! Well, after due preparation with self hypnotic training he was able to walk over a ten yards long carpet of red-hot charcoal without the slightest burns.
The Secret of Hypnosis
Hypnosis is able to evoke illusions, hallucinations and memories of suppressed incidents. Hypnosis is a part oft management techniques, leadership tools as well as interrogation techniques of secret services. It may be used to reach first class performance, to support medical interventions, to release from anxiety and fear and generally to make stronger. Hypnosis works for individuals and for groups too.
Basically, there are no boundaries applying hypnosis. It’s a fascinating phenomenon of our psyche, interwoven with our daily life imperceptibly influenced by it. Hypnosis is a valid method in all areas of our life, sometimes secretly, be it conscious or unconscious. Famous politicians and managers use the laws of hypnosis, knowingly or unknowingly. In classical hypnosis the hypnotist adopts an authoritative and dominant attitude.
With a fixed gaze and a corresponding hand gesture the hypnotist can trigger archaic areas in the brain of the hypnotized person. This way very quickly he can induce a deep trance. Although this method is mostly used in mass and show hypnosis and thus belongs to the repertoire of any hypnotist, I’m concentrating more on subtler trance inductions. I’m convinced of the fact, every client should control the hypnotic process as much as possible.
Suggestion – Individual Basis For Hypnosis
Before one can dive deeply into the subject of applied hypnosis, it is important to study the phenomenon called suggestion. Here’s a definition:
Suggestion manipulates someone’s thinking, will and feeling bypassing his rational personality.
This suggestive approach is typically used in any sales talk: “Don’t you think you deserve this special piece of cloth? I bet with this exquisite dress you’ll be the center of any reception!” Or if you see somebody biting into a juicy lemon, immediately you’re going to taste something sour in your mouth.
Basically any hypnosis starts with a specific suggestion, no matter if it’s self-hypnosis or the hypnosis of another person. Since the times of Sigmund Freud psychotherapy is also using hypnosis to reach suppressed memories and key events in the patient’s past. Most of the problems are caused by the unconscious, and by getting access to it they may be rehabilitated. The medical therapeutic hypnosis applies the so called “post-hypnotic suggestion”. This is really astonishing, because every assignment or affirmation which is planted into the subconscious mind will usually be followed by the client for a long time.
There’s one big exception: these so-called affirmations planted deep into the client’s mind do not work if they are in total opposition to his character and disposition. But if they are in line with the main thrust of his personality, they will be able to change not only the symptoms but even the cause of any given problem or task. In other words: hypnosis removes the blockages so that the hidden or inhibited potential can flow to its fullest.
Is Anybody Hypnotizable?
The last point pertains to the question if anybody is hypnotizable? Most of the specialists agree that 90% of all human beings are hypnotizable. They also agree upon the observation that the more intelligent and focused the clients are the better are the results. Out of the 90% some can easily be hypnotized, some just moderately and some barley.
From a neurological standpoint one can state that the more the right hemisphere of the brain is dominant the easier is a trance induction aiming at hypnosis. On the other hand, the left hemisphere promotes the rational, logical and linear thinking, wants to stay in control with constant judgment and thus refuses to let go. There are some little tricks to find out how well somebody is hypnotizable. Ask them to imagine ants crawling down his arm. If he can feel it right away, then he’s the perfect candidate.
But for those having a hard time at the beginning, I can suggest effective relaxation exercises as a good preparation for the real hypnosis session. Go to the tag “Hypnosis”, “Relaxation” and “Exercises” at the bottom of the column on the right hand side.
In case you want to deal with health issues using hypnosis, please contact your physician. The information you get through my homepage or the books I’m referring to cannot replace professional diagnosis and treatment.
Now you’ve got an idea how to get access to the subconscious mind. The main gateway may be found in the technique of hypnosis.
