Welcome to the next step in your healing journey.
Hypnosis is what I call a consent state. You must want to be hypnotized and allow it. When the mind is quieted and the emotions calmed we can achieve a state of mind in which the critical thinking can relax and thoughts and ideas that are in line with what you know is in your best interest can be accepted into the unconscious mind and the old learned conditioning can begin to change. Remember, the old programs were learned at one time, we are just using a process to learn new programs that are aligned with creating your highest quality of life. Fortunately this is something the mind is well equipped to do. Hypnosis is simply the process that facilitates that learning. That is why it has been used in one form or another for arguably a few thousand years or more.
