What Is The Purpose Of Hypnosis?
The purpose of hypnosis is to help a person utilize their own mind to help reduce or alleviate a variety of issues, such as anxiety, fears and phobias, unhealthy or destructive habits (smoking, compulsive eating, etc..). The goal is to create positive change in the subconscious mind while he/she is in the hypnotic state.
There are two key concepts for understanding why hypnosis is such an important tool for creating life changes.
Homeostasis: Homeostasis is our innate unconscious drive to “stay the same”, that is to say resist all changes at a subconscious level. While we may desire a change in our feelings, reactions or habits, at a deeper level our subconscious defense mechanisms seek to preserve the status quo, ie… resist all efforts to change. So while talking, planning, discussion and rational understanding of behavior are all important concepts, they do not address our subconscious need to sabotage our success and/or efforts to change.
Neuroplasticity: On a personal, spiritual and behavioral level, neuroplasticity is the ability of the brain to change throughout an individual’s life. Our ability to changes beliefs, emotional responses and behavioral habits is dependent on the flexibility of or our mind. Hypnosis, Therapeutic Imagery, NLP, mindfulness and more are the tools used in hypnotherapy to facilitate the internal, emotional, behavioral flexibility need to overcome homeostasis and release our subconscious needs to sabotage our success or resist our desires for change.
