This free workshop is an introduction to hypnosis, learn how hypnosis works and how the mind works. Here a few fun facts about hypnosis:
EVERYONE CAN BE HYPNOTIZED!
Anyone who is able and willing to follow instruction can be hypnotized. You cannot be hypnotized against your will because hypnosis is a consensual state. It works best when you really want to make changes in your life but are having a hard time doing so or a hard time following through.
HYPNOSIS IS A STATE OF MIND – NOT A FEELING.
Hypnosis is not a feeling – it’s a state of mind. Some people feel light, like they’re floating; some feel grounded and safe like a tree. Others feel nothing at all or a light buzzing feeling. They’re all correct – and it’s different for every person.
YOU ARE ALWAYS IN CONTROL DURING HYPNOSIS.
Your hypnotist has no control over you. Hypnosis stage shows, where people do crazy things, are for entertainment! That’s not what happens in a hypnosis office. Your hypnotist serves as a guide, or coach. Your hypnotist will work with you to understand your needs and goals. That will be an important part of the hypnosis process and suggestions that he or she will give you while in hypnosis.
HYPNOSIS WORKS REALLY FAST.
Just as our brain can quickly learn a phobia (which is a learned fear), our brain can also learn a new response to an old situation very quickly. The brain is lightning fast and can change using neuroplasticity.
HYPNOSIS WORKS – EVEN WHEN EVERYTHING ELSE HAS FAILED!
Even if you’ve tried other things to resolve your issue, hypnosis can still work because it works differently-it taps into the power of the subconscious mind where our memories and emotions are stored.
