Hypnosis leads us into a state characterized by increased capacity and, at the same time, deep relaxation

What is Hypnosis?

What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis (ancient Greek hypnos (υπνος), "sleep") is a several thousand years old procedure in achieving an altered state of consciousness between waking and sleep. This state is characterized by a temporary enhancement of attentiveness and receptiveness, increased capacity of thoughts, and deep relaxation. This altered state of consciousness is referred to as trance.

Each type of hypnosis is essentially a guided self-hypnosis. During hypnosis, we retain full control over the entire process and decide what we can attain through hypnosis. The hypnosis therapist merely assumes the role of a travel companion who always supports, but never controls.

Hypnosis is a scientifically recognized and highly effective branch of medicine, which has gained in importance and appreciation mainly during the last few decades. The areas of application come to include substitute for anesthesia, curing of phobias, easing of pain, increasing performance/concentration, weight reduction, moving away from addictions, improve memory power and coping with stress. The therapeutic application of hypnosis, for example with quitting smoking, is referred to as hypnotherapy.

During a trance, attentiveness is directed at a specific matter (deepened concentration), more or less losing sight of one’s surrounding. The person turns inward and concentrates on one’s own body and self. At the same time the analytical, critical, and rational mind (consciousness) is bypassed in order to reach the subconscious mind (i.e., the true driving and motivating power of the human being) and all its emotions, lifelong memories, etc. In this state, the vegeatative nervous system can be influenced; relationships to one's own behavioroir can be recognized; memories from the distant past can be clear as if they occurred yesterday.

The hypnotized person is physically deeply relaxed, albeit highly mentally concentrated, alert and very receptive. Depending on the depth of the trance, the hypnotized person loses sense of time and space, blocks out the surrounding world, and enjoys the ease of mind and inner peace.

Actually, a (light) hypnosis is a natural, common altered state of mind, which should, by no means, be equated with "sleep". Whenever you do something automatically, you are in a trance-like state, similar to i.e., television shortly before falling asleep and often while driving a car (sometimes you wonder how you arrived at your destination). Nevertheless, the subconscious mind is highly responsive and suggestible in this state. By means of various techniques (i.e. suggestions), undesired mental and emotional programming can be altered, resolved or even be utilized as a resource.

In addition to all of this, a deep state of trance enables access to superconsciousness, a higher state of consciousness, which contains the soul’s memories from past lives and life between lives.
