HOW HYPNOSIS WORKS
What is a suggestion/affirmation?
A suggestion creates expectation, which tends to become one’s truth if felt and imagined deeply. We move in the direction of our most dominant thoughts. Every sensory input is a suggestion.
How hypnosis works?
Although there are a few widely excepted theories, we have yet to fully understand how it works. It is the use of the powers within your own mind. During this time of deep relaxation, the mind is very open to visualizations and creating a rich sensory experience. The more real the experience becomes in the subconscious mind during this state, the more effect it will have on your waking behavior. Most of us have heard of the Placebo Effect. “A beneficial effect, produced by a placebo drug or treatment, that cannot be attributed to the properties of the placebo itself, and must therefore be due to the patient's belief in that treatment.”
