Hypnosis is a natural state of consciousness in which we are open to suggestions. It is similar to zoning out: while watching television or driving down the freeway. Our bodies are relaxed, our conscious “mind chatter” is quieted and our attention is free to examine and reprogram thoughts, feelings, and behavior that no longer serve us. Hypnotherapy utilizes hypnosis for therapy.
“Hypnotherapist induces a hypnotic state in client to increase motivation or alter behavior pattern through hypnosis.” Hypnotherapy differs from meditation primarily in the intent. The purpose of hypnotherapy is to reprogram the subconscious mind.
In addition to reprogramming the subconscious mind with the client’s suggestions, Transpersonal hypnotherapy goes beyond the personality to access intuition or inner wisdom. The goal is to increase awareness around personal and societal programming. With increased awareness comes the personal choice to keep or reject these programs. Once the choice is made to reject old programs, then the undesirable patterns are deprogrammed. This leads to the waking up of spirit. “ What you think you are is a belief to be undone”
