Hypnotherapy is simply the use of hypnosis to enable you to take control of feelings, behaviors, habits, and self-image.
Hypnosis is NOT mystical or magical in any way. It IS a very effective mental tool that enables people to take control of things that may have seemed beyond their control in the past. Hypnosis is a completely natural, yet different, state of consciousness from the normal waking state. When a person is in the state of hypnosis he is completely awake and alert. He knows exactly what is happening at all times. Someone using hypnosis cannot control you. While under hypnosis, your awareness is actually heightened and carefully focused. You become very receptive to positive suggestions that are acceptable to you, and are able to learn from the artificial experiences perceived in the hypnotic state.
We can use the artificial experiences perceived under hypnosis to desensitize a client’s fears, improve his self-image, or gain other behavioral or emotional goals. Goal achievement is an area of human behavior where this tool of hypnosis is very helpful. Other areas include overcoming fears, improving sports, performance, stress control and relaxation, elimination of habits, gaining self confidence, sexual dysfunction, and success motivation. Basically, if a feeling or behavior in your life is undesirable to you, in most cases hypnotherapy can be of value.
The real goal in most cases is for the client to learn effective mental dynamics and take control of his life. There are no easy fixes. There is no magic or effortless cure for your problems, but with a little knowledge, a little effort, and personal responsibility you can make your life what you want it to be.
The only magic is responsibility and work. It helps a lot to have effective tools and the knowledge with which to use them well. Your life should be what you want it to be. It is your life. Take control and get what you desire out of it.
We all have our picture of an ideal life
And we have all been given the ability to devise
The creation of the dream is within our grasp
The responsibility of owning them is our only task.
If life seems to be taking unwanted turns, look within
It’s always some insecurity that your soul brings
You are not a helpless victim in your world
Control of your own happiness you have furled.
Remember that everyday he sends us clues, be aware
Let them make you stronger, see how you fare
When caught in a situation, zoom yourself out
Owning what the learning is all about.
You might have the knowledge of how to be happy
Beware of the cycle that makes the decision unhealthy
When getting out of a situation, come out clean
Don’t look for someone upon whom to lean.
You will be caught in that same mess
You want to grow stronger and that is the test
You want equality, respect and love to share
Then throw away your fears and begin to dare.
There will be people in your life that will walk with you
People to guide you through some blues
Accept them solely in this very role
Don’t expect them to be there in order to console
I will be the mirror to your SWOT analysis
I will point to you your emotional paralysis
Start tuning all your attention in
Start listening to every word your soul sings.
Your decisions should be made right through your heart
It is where the truth actually starts
The strength is what you are not seeing
The power of YOU is surrounding your being.
