“Do what feels right”… a familiar phrase, a piece of advice you may have gotten or given explains a lot about hypnosis.
Consider that we have two parts of the mind, the thinking, cognitive processing piece, and the subconscious, emotionally charged piece. We know that we have both parts whenever we realize we did something we later regret and looking back realize we reacted emotionally, I just got so angry or I was just so sad, or whatever.
Whenever there is a power struggle between the emotional part and the thinking part the emotion always wins. Gosh, I am sorry, I really did not mean it… a very common statement reflects the superiority of the emotionally driven part of our mind.
Recognizing the conflict between these mental parts, hypnosis is a state of mind where is possible to step away from the battle and look at the situation from a different perspective.
If we are at every moment of our lives the sum total of our experiences the other problem with how our mind functions are that we rely heavily on what is familiar. Falling back to doing what feels right simply means that we are creatures of habit. Whether throwing a baseball or skipping rope we learn through repetition and if it feels right, we continue to do it. This is a valuable characteristic since expertise in anything is nothing more than a capability learned through repetition.
But the repetition of emotionally driven behavior that has undesirable consequences is obviously disastrous. Hypnosis seeks to enable the individual to step away from learned habits, and view the interaction between thinking and feeling as through a telescope watching the creation of a new world in the galaxy.
See through the smoke of emotion how the molecules of learning formed the clash with thinking and you receive new understanding, create improved reactions and develop more rewarding behavior. Let us know you how to change your thinking through hypnosis today!
