Hypnosis Meaning:
Understanding the Meaning and Benefits

Hypnosis meaning

Hypnosis is a fascinating and often misunderstood phenomenon that has been the subject of much research and debate over the years. Despite its controversial reputation, hypnosis has been found to be a  powerful tool for self-improvement, personal growth and healing. In this article, we will explore the meaning of hypnosis and its benefits, as well as provide a comprehensive guide to how it works and how you can use it to improve your life.

Hypnosis Meaning

Hypnosis is a state of altered consciousness in which the conscious mind takes a back seat while we work with the powerful subconscious mind. Through accessing and working with the subconscious mind where the problem lies, we can change the deep rooted beliefs and upgrade the subconscious programming. 

The Benefits of Hypnosis

Hypnosis is often used to help people overcome negative habits, improve their mental and physical health, and achieve personal goals. It has been found to be an effective tool for treating a wide range of conditions, including anxiety, depression, addiction, and pain. 

In addition to its therapeutic benefits, another use of hypnosis is for personal growth and self-improvement. For example, it can be used to help people overcome limiting beliefs, improve their self-esteem and confidence, increase their motivation and focus.

How Does Hypnosis Work?

Hypnosis works by bypassing the critical part of the mind and accessing the subconscious, where our deepest beliefs and habits are stored. By doing so, hypnosis can help people change negative thought patterns, overcome limiting beliefs, and develop new, positive habits.

The process of Conversational Hypnotherapy typically involves 4 stages: induction, deepening, conversations with subconscious, future pacing and suggestions.

Induction: This is the first stage of hypnosis and involves relaxing the mind and body, and preparing the person for hypnosis.

Deepening: In this stage, the Hypnotherapist will use various techniques, such as visualization, to deepen the person’s state of hypnosis, to slow down the subject’s brain waves to alpha or theta. 

Conversations with Subconscious: Unlike other old school hypnotherapy approaches, our Hypnotherapists at MIHH will talk directly to your powerful subconscious mind to release suppressed emotions, and find out the reasons behind what the subconscious is holding on to. The Hypnotherapist will act as a facilitator in the process to get the subconscious to use a new way to achieve the desired goals. 

Future Pacing & Suggestions: Finally, the Hypnotherapist will encourage the individuals to visualize the desired outcomes and feel the positive feelings, with the suggestions embedded to the person, to make your mind believe that you already achieved the goals. Because the mind can’t distinguish between real and imagined.

How to Use Hypnosis?

Self Hypnosis VS Hypnotherapy

Self-Hypnosis: This involves using visualization and suggestion techniques to induce a state of hypnosis on your own. It can be a useful tool for overcoming negative habits, increasing motivation and focus, and achieving personal goals. There are many videos about hypnosis in youtube you can find, they are mainly for general use. Some people may find it helpful, some may not because it’s not personalized. 

Hypnotherapy: If you are having an issue and find that there’s a recurring pattern, it’s suggested to work with a trained hypnotherapist to address the specific issues. At MIHH, our Hypnotherapists use advanced conversational hypnotherapy to connect and talk with your powerful subconscious mind to find and remove mental blockages, as well as upgrade the subconscious programming to make changes. It’s proven to be highly effective for many people.

A hypnotized person who is willing to get into a trance state through the facilitation of a professional Hypnotherapist follows the instructions given by the Hypnotherapist, with the intention to get the conscious mind take a back seat and be an observer in the experience, so that the Hypnotherapist can work directly with the subconscious mind.

Franz Mesmer, an 18th-century Austrian physician, is credited with being the father of hypnotism. However, the hypnotic state has been used in various forms throughout history, with evidence of hypnosis-like techniques found in ancient Egyptian and Greek civilizations. Mesmer’s work on “animal magnetism” involved inducing a trance-like state in his patients to help them overcome various physical and mental health issues.
