Hypnosis is the doorway to your subconscious mind. The subconscious mind is your storehouse for all of life’s experiences and memories- everything that makes up who you are. Primary to hypnosis is the use of mental imagery. In hypnosis, one can imaginatively enact and re-enact desirable behavior changes. Imagination is the ability to form new sensations, new mental images, new emotions, new sights and sounds within our conscious and subconscious mind.
Imagination can also be expressed through stories such as fairy tales or fantasies. Children use “pretend play” in order to exercise their imagination. They play in their imagined situation as if though the imagined reality truly exists. Hypnosis allows the individual to apply an alternative experience to their life in a safe, secure and calm environment. Imagined images are seen and experienced within the “mind’s eye”. This technique bypasses the filters within the conscious mind in order to work at the subconscious level.
The Critical Mind is a filter that keeps negative, unwanted impressions from becoming anchored in the subconscious mind. For most of us, the doorway to the subconscious mind is closed. However, there are some individuals who live each day with that doorway wide open. Like a sponge, they absorb negative suggestions that normally would be filter out by the critic mind. This can be the cause for many unwanted maladies and negative issues in their lives.

The term “hypnosis” comes from the Greek word “Hypnos” which means sleep. The words hypnosis and hypnotism both derive from the term Neuro-hypnotism (nervous sleep) coined by the Scottish surgeon James Braid around 1841. Braid based his practice on work completed by Franz Mesmer and his followers (“Mesmerism” or “animal magnetism“). However, Braid differed in his theory as to how the hypnotic procedure worked. In the first book on the subject, Neurypnology (1843), Braid described “hypnotism” as a state of physical relaxation accompanied and induced by mental concentration (Braid J (1843).
