Hypnosis: Control your Destiny
Hypnosis is an ancient system that lets us access parts of our mind we normally can’t reach. It’s known that the conscious mind is only ten percent of our brain activity. The other 90% is normally hidden from us. By accessing that part of us we can also access strengths we weren’t aware of.
Q: What is Hypnosis?
We all drift through multiple states of awareness in a single day. One such state into which we commonly enter is a state of trance. When we become absorbed in a book to the exclusion of everything around us, that’s a form of trance. When we’re driving on a freeway and miss an exit because we’re lost in thought, that too, is trance. Being “in the zone” is also trance. These states share a sense of focused awareness and relaxation.
Q: Is Hypnosis Dangerous
The answer is no. Your subconscious mind would not allow anyone to manipulate you unless you specifically wanted that. When people are hypnotized onstage and act silly, it’s because in their mind they already knew beforehand that they were going to allow that to happen. They were “pre-primed” to bark like a dog, or whatever. Remember: your subconscious mind has one single mission: to benefit you at all. times.
Q: Why Would my Subconscious let me Smoke, or Eat Too Much?
Because at some point, your subconscious perceived this to be a habit that was helpful to you. This habit comforted you, or made you feel less bad than you had been feeling. It was seen as a survival mechanism. Accessing your subconscious mind makes it easier to create changes you want to make by giving it a new task, and a new reason to fulfill that task. It’s all about replacing an old mindset with a new that helps fill the need of the old mindset, whether it’s safety, comfort, control, attention, or any other need that was being filled at that time.
Q: Do I go Unconscious when I'm in Hypnosis
You are always acutely aware of everything going on around you. Every sound is perceived. Also, you’re able to move, to scratch an itch or cough–even to get up and leave. The trick? You’re usually so relaxed that you’re perfectly comfortable staying right there, and enjoying the relaxation that you yourself have created.

I’ve also helped with habit release including nail-biting, hair pulling and drinking among other issues.
Q: Can Hypnosis Help With Pain Issues?
People suffering from painful conditions including cancer have found relief from pain using what we call “Glove Anesthesia”. By accessing the feeling one gets when putting a hand In a bucket of ice, we then have the person transfer that numb sensation to another part of the body for several hours at a time. It’s a form of self-hypnosis, and quite brilliant, actually.
