“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.” ― Carl Gustav Jung
There are two parts of the mind: the conscious mind and the subconscious mind. The conscious mind allows you to think, analyze, process and plan. It uses only 10% of your potential and also houses your short term memory. In any type of traditional talk therapy you are basically dealing with the conscious mind. Here you analyze, figure out, or intellectualize your problems. Talk therapy improves your awareness, which is the first step in changing. The other 90% of your mind is the subconscious mind where all of your memories are stored. Everything you have ever experienced, felt, smelled, heard, tasted or dreamed is indelibly recorded in this part of the brain. Hypnosis provides direct access to the sub- conscious mind.
HEART CENTERED HYPNOTHERAPY
"Heart-Centered Hypnotherapy" is the process of psychotherapy with a client who is in hypnotic altered state of consciousness which gives you the ability to dip into the unconscious and bring the unconscious material back into the waking state of consciousness. This is different from regular hypnosis which induces you into a relaxed, suggestible state and then offers post- hypnotic suggestions for relief of your symptoms. With “Heart-Centered Hypnotherapy you actually experience a visceral reaction while releasing the emotional charge around your issue.
"Heart-Centered Hypnotherapy" allows you to get in touch with your core issues more rapidly than conventional talk therapy. It helps to purge the body of pain, sadness, old anger, grief or any negative feelings you may be holding onto and would like to get rid of. It leaves you lighter and freer. It helps you to open your heart to yourself and approach your difficulties from a place of love and self-acceptance.
MYTHS & MISCONCEPTIONS
Most of us are familiar with the theatrical hypnotists who make you cluck like a chicken or bark like a dog among other silly things. This gives people the wrong impression and causes you to believe that hypnotists control your mind. This is absolutely untrue. Under hypnosis you are in a heightened state of concentration and relaxation. You will not do or say anything that is against your morals or character. You can not be talked into doing anything against your will.
