Relax and close your eyes. You are getting sleepy. Very sleepy. I am going to start counting and when I reach 10, you will cluck like a chicken. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, 10. Open your eyes.
Have you ever had an ah-ha moment? Something that all of a sudden, made things clear for you? Perhaps it was a problem that suddenly found its resolution or a forgotten memory that is recovered? Something was triggered in your mind that allowed that moment of clarity. Hypnotherapy is similar to that. It is a technique that accesses the subconscious mind which in turn enables an increase in the response to suggestion and changes to perception and memory.
Let’s face it, life moves fast and it can kick your butt at times. In a city as fast-paced as NYC, the hustle and bustle can wear people down and leave them overwhelmed. Everyone’s story is different and it could be filled with heartache or depression, and nowhere to turn. However, since there is so much activity in NYC, there is also greater access to services to help deal with life’s ups and downs, such as hypnosis.
There are some people who move through life without a care in the world. It seems as though they have endless opportunities and everything comes easy to them. They are viewed as lucky and are often envied by others. They may even be envied by you. What is important to realize is that everything is not always what it seems and that you always have the power to change how you feel about yourself and your life.
When you hear that someone is a hypnotist, what comes to mind? Is it someone on a stage being overly dramatic, putting audience members in trance-like states and making them quack like a duck or bark like a dog? Maybe it is someone who makes people think they are walking on tightropes. Hypnosis can be for entertainment, but can also can be a powerful tool for creating change.
