Hypnosis is a natural state of mind, one that we actually move in and out of throughout our normal day. It is a deeply relaxing state of mind in which we are able to tap into the power of our subconscious and superconscious mind in order to shift and change and create the things we dream of in our life. If we have a strong enough emotional desire for the change in our life, then hypnosis easily gives us the tools to empower the mind for change. But it is important to understand, if we do not really want the change to happen, then it won't.
Hypnosis is a way for us to communicate directly with our subconscious mind. It is tool to relax the mind so we can bypass our critical factor and become consciously aware of all the thoughts and beliefs that are running our life, and then we can reprogram and insert new positive, constructive ideas that are in line with helping us reach our goals. This is extremely important because our subconscious overrides everything.
Information gets into our subconscious mind in a few different ways. One of the main ways is through very emotionalized moments in our life. Other ways include authority figures, peers, repetition, and of course, hypnosis. But most of the programming currently running in our subconscious entered before the age of ten when our critical faculty didn't exist yet. Once these thoughts gain a foothold, they will continue to run our life until they are changed in our subconscious mind.
