Hypnosis is a natural state of awareness that gives you an extraordinary feeling of mental, physical and emotional relaxation. The subconscious mind, in this relaxed state, becomes very receptive to accepting positive, beneficial suggestions.
These suggestions are given directly to your receptive, uncritical, subconscious mind, bypassing the critical, conscious signals that contribute towards continued, undesired behavior such as smoking or over-eating.
Many undesirable habits can be modified with hypnosis. Smoking and over-eating are two common examples. Although many individuals will attempt to change undesired habits with willpower alone, they often find it is not enough. For hypnosis to be most effective, it is essential that you are willing to make a commitment to change and this commitment must become more powerful than the urge to continue the undesired behavior. The power of your imagination, in conjunction with hypnosis, will enable you to achieve goals where "willpower" alone would not. When imagination and willpower are in conflict, imagination always wins.
Hypnosis feels very much like a deep daydream. In hypnosis, your mind is active; your thoughts and actions are under your control; you hear every sound in the room; you can answer questions; and you remember everything that is said. No two people experience hypnosis in exactly the same way, but all agree that being in hypnosis is a very pleasant experience.
