What is Hypnosis?

The Hyp and the Hype of Hypnosis. What exactly is hypnosis? Well, it’s not like the movies or the stage shows. First let us define the word hypnosis. Hypnos was the name of the sleeping Greek God, over time ‘hypnos’ took on the meaning sleep. However, this is far from the truth. In fact while under Hypnosis the mind is very active. So Hypnosis is NOT sleep. While in hypnosis you may be relaxed and have your eyes closed (while meditating), or you may have your eyes open (while driving or absorbed in a movie) in heightened awareness!

Hypnosis is a very natural state of consciousness. In fact we go in and out of hypnosis all day long. As defined by the North Carolina Society of Hypnotists (2015), hypnosis is “…selective, focused attention, and even though it is 100% natural and normal, it remains one of the most fascinating phenomena of the human mind”. The wonderful thing about this is, that when we go into hypnosis our minds become open to change. Hypnosis, has been used for thousands of years, by the Egyptians, Greeks, and Shamans of all indigenous cultures around the world.

What is Beyond Hypnosis?

During Soul Therapy sessions I may employ diagnostic tools such as Crystal energy work, Numerical Mapping, Dream analysis, Present, Past, and Ancestral Life Recall, Astrology, Iridology, Handwriting analysis, and Nutritional analysis in order to get to the hidden root of the interference pattern. It is then that I HELP you to achieve light trance Hypnosis with light and sound technology to access your subconscious mind. During this “opening” process I implant YOUR goals and aspirations into your open a receptive mind. Nothing is being done TO YOU. All work is done WITH YOU. I vow to NEVER inhibit, control or manipulate your free will. You are always fully conscious and in control at all times. If you are looking for someone to do the work for you…I am NOT the one. On the other hand if you’re looking for support along your path to a better you, I am here.

What are the Benefits Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is essentially guided meditation. Dr. Michael Beckwith calls meditation the most powerful tool we have for spiritual growth and transformation.

Scientific research has proven that a consistent meditation practice:

– Reduces stress. A Harvard study estimates that 80% of doctor’s visits are caused by stress
– Creates greater relaxation and improved sleep
– Increases emotional well-being, decreases depression and anxiety, and enhances self-esteem and self-acceptance
– Improves concentration, focus and productivity
– Increases memory and recall
– Increases self-awareness
– Encourages healthy life choices
– Elevates mood and increases happiness
– Increases longevity and slows the aging process
– Strengthens the immune system, reduces inflammation, the source of all disease

Meditation allows us to move beyond fight or flight reactions into greater response-ability, and awakens us to our Oneness with the Universal Presence (agapelive.com).
