People go in and out of trance many times every day. All those times you've found yourself daydreaming or "lost in thought," you were actually in trance. Remember those times you pull into work and don't remember the drive? You were in a trance. Hypnosis happens when the conscious mind is bypassed, and you access the subconscious mind.
Hypnotherapy uses trance to access the subconscious mind and explore the
underlying causes of why you do or feel the things you do. By not engaging with the conscious mind, you are able to bypass the analytical and critical mind and find your perception and belief of an event, from intuition and deep understanding of yourself.
You all have things you have used as ways of coping from when you were a child or adolescent. Sometimes those ways of coping stop working for you as you grow and start to get in the way of what you want. When in hypnosis, you can access these "parts" of you and shift how they help you or let go of what no longer serves you.
Hypnotherapy allows you to move around the conscious mind and access the subconscious mind. The conscious mind is where the critical thoughts, false beliefs and irrational fears come from. This analytical part of the mind that stops us from doing the things we know in our gut is the right thing. When that part of the mind is softer, we can access the part of the mind that holds all our secrets, information, memories, and everything else about us. Through the subconscious mind, you can see things more clearly and connect the dots and see where your patterns started. From this new understanding, you then shift the perspective to create a different way of dealing with your struggles, your environment and the people around you.
