1) Why Hypnosis?

Self-Discovery for Self-Knowledge.
Hypnosis is a Drug-Free tool ! No side-effects !

What is Hypnosis?

As there are many questions raised by the subject matter, suggestion is the basic factor in producing and utilizing hypnosis. The suggestions can be smell, taste, touch,sight, sound.

Hypnosis is a wakefull state of focused attention, heightened suggestability with diminished peripheral awareness.

Suggestion and the ability to be Hypnotized are interrelated. Repetition is important in learning as it is in Hypnosis, as the simple definition of Hypnosis is suggestion and repetition.
The rest that the subject will learn is modification, amplification and variation of the 2 key ingredients of suggestion and repetition.


Concentration on one idea to the exclusion of all others, elimination of all external stimuli except those needed to initiate the desired behavior is called monoedism.

To this can be added visualization, imagination, desire, of which one or more of these factors may produce the Hypnotic state.

There really is no difference between an act conceived and carried out in a Hypnotic State versus a normal waking state.

Hypnosis is a continuum from the ordinary state of wakefulness.

Why does hypnosis work?

Law of dominant effect-attaching an emotion to a suggestion makes it more effective.

Law of reversed effect-when the will and the imagination come into conflict, the imagination always wins. When one thinks he would like to do something and feels he cannot, then the more he tries the more difficult it becomes.

Law of concentrated attention-this principal states that when spontaneous attention is concentrated on an idea, the idea tends to realize itself.

Suggestibility-this has been described as the degree which one readily accepts suggestions.

Hypnotizability-there is no statistically significant correlation between intelligence and hypnotizability, although experience does seem to indicate that the more intelligent, extroverted and stronger-willed the person is, the more likely he or she is to be a good hypnotic subject.

When a person says "I can't be Hypnotized", a reasonable response to that statement is "well, that is very interesting, but I certainly wouldn't brag about it".

90% Hypnotizable
An expert hypnotist should be able to hypnotize 80% of 
succeptable subjects in 3 or 4 attempts.
Another 10% may be inducted into hypnosis with additional attempts or different methods.
The remaining 10% cannot be hypnotized at all.
Why not brag about it?
There are numerous reasons, such as unconcious resistance, the inability to have faith in anything, excessive cynicism, being too analytical, intellectualizing what is essentially an emotional experience, certain personality traits that preclude their becoming hypnotized unless they change certain attitudes, lack of faith in the operator or perhaps a natural antagonism to the operators "type".
There are however, instances where these conditions do not exist and yet some people cannot be hypnotized.
Until we find out more about the nature of hypnosis, we will probably never know why a small percentage remains refractory.

It is known that those who make the poorest subjects, generally speaking, are children under the age of 6, psychotics and others of low grade intelligence.

Why? Because these people have difficulty with monoedism (concentrating on 1 idea).



 Whats with the Buffalo?

Buffalo Hunting and Social proof—Why you should cut from the herd:

Our time honored and institutionalized American cultures response to the social proof phenomenon regarding our current mindset on any given subject, presented from a source of Authority, like the State, a particular marketers presentation in the popular media of the moment or the current popular trending idea of the day always reminds me of the way some Indian tribes, namely the Blackfoot, Cree, Snake, and Crow used to hunt North American buffalo. There are two features of the buffalo that make them especially susceptible to erroneous social evidence. 1st, their eyes are set in their heads so that it is easier to see from the side than to the front. 2nd, when they run, as in a stampede, it is with their heads down so low they cannot see above the herd. As a result, the Indians realized, it was possible to kill a tremendous number of buffalo by starting a herd running toward a cliff. The animals, responding to the thundering social proof around them—and never looking up to see what lay ahead—did the rest. One astonished observer to such a hunt described the deadly outcome of the buffalo’s obsessive trust in collective knowledge:

“In this way, it is possible to decoy a herd toward a precipice, and cause it to plunge over en masse, the leaders being thrust over by their followers and all the rest following of their own free will.” (from Hornaday 1887)

We need to look up and around periodically whenever we are locked onto the evidence of the crowd.


Social proof is more powerful than we may admit!

Especially if we are not getting the results we want or expect.

Are you going where you want to go?

Are you where you want to be?

What do you base your thoughts, feelings and actions on?

Who and what is in control of you?

Are you getting results you do not want?

HAVE YOU CONSIDERED CUTTING FROM THE HERD?

 

2) Attitude

The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than money, than circumstances, than success, than failures, than what other people think, say or do. It is more important than appearances, giftedness, or skill. It can make or break a team, a business, a company, a relationship, a home. The remarkable thing is that we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change the past, we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to us and 90% how we react to it. And so it is with all of us.....WE ARE IN CHARGE OF OUR OWN ATTITUDES!!!! 

3) PERSISTANCE

NOTHING IN THIS WORLD CAN TAKE THE PLACE OF PERSISTANCE.
TALENT WILL NOT; NOTHING IS MORE COMMON THAN UNSUCCESSFULL MEN WITH TALENT.
GENIUS WILL NOT; UNREWARDED GENIUS IS ALMOST A PROVERB.
EDUCATION WILL NOT; THE WORLD IS FULL OF EDUCATED DERELICTS.
PERSISTANCE AND DETERMINATION ALONE ARE OMNIPOTENT.
THE SLOGAN "PRESS ON" HAS SOLVED AND ALWAYS WILL SOLVE THE PROBLEMS OF THE HUMAN RACE.
CALVIN COOLIDGE.

What is emotional screening for illness, injury, disease or health condition?

What if there was an organic emotional component of your illness, injury, disease or health condition that could be helped or changed by using hypnosis (that would be performed with permission from your Doctor) that could ameliorate some of your symptoms?
Would having reduced symptoms of your illness, injury, disease or health condition improve the quality of your life?
This is not an independent diagnosis and treatment or cure for any condition of medical or mental disease, nor is it counseling.
I will simply guide you into the state called hypnosis to allow you the client to use your natural ability to change the way you think, feel and behave to ameliorate some of your symptoms.
