Because psychiatrists only have a general understanding of the characteristics of hypnosis, the easiest way to explain it is extreme
relaxation. It is a state of intense absorption or concentration. It is a way to allow your subconscious mind (the part of your brain that
controls your body) to go inside and solve problems, access your imagination and creativity.
Hypnosis is a trance like state, but it isn't sleep. You are aware of your surrounding during hypnosis. The best feeling to compare it to
is daydreaming, or that feeling of 'losing yourself' in a book or movie when you're hyper-focused and don't hear someone call your
name. You are fully conscious, but you tune out most of the stimuli around you. You focus intently on the subject at hand, to the near
exclusion of any other thoughts.
In the everyday trance of a daydream or movie, this imaginary world seems somewhat real to you, in the sense that it fully engages your emotions and you are totally in the moment. When you work with Best Hypnosis & Coaching we help you create intentional relaxation so you're able to re-imagine your life as you would like it to be, void of those unwanted bad habits, fears, etc. Your mind is uninhibited and relaxed and able to relearn behaviors and beliefs which can be acted upon when you are fully alert and awake. Hypnosis is an educational tool. It is often compared to the relaxed mental state between wakefulness and sleep.
Because all hypnosis is self-hypnosis, you aren't under anyone's control but your own. You can't be made to do anything you don't want to. It's nothing like you see on television and it has no religious basis. In fact, hypnosis has been approved by the Catholic Church since the 1950's. Check out our FAQ page for more details.
It is simply a relaxed, natural state that allows your mind to settle down so you are open to new suggestions on how to live a better, more successful life. At The Savvy Mind we include only positive suggestions throughout your sessions so you leave feeling relaxed, renewed, and energized.
