Your mind operates in two states of awareness: the conscious and unconscious.
The conscious mind controls things within your awareness, like moving your hand or making a phone call.
The unconscious mind, however, controls all of the things you don’t think about, like your heart rate and blood pressure. The unconscious mind also stores all of your thoughts, memories, and beliefs. In any given moment, your unconscious mind is processing about two million pieces of information. This means that while you may not be aware of it, your behavior is profoundly influenced by the activity happening within your subconscious mind.
As you can imagine, we all have a lot of subconscious beliefs that can influence our choices and behaviors. In fact, over time, subconscious beliefs we accumulate as a result of difficult or traumatic experiences in our past can negatively affect many different areas of our lives, even though they originated to keep us safe.
The key is understanding that a “belief” isn't a fact, and it can be changed.
Hypnosis helps you shape the beliefs in your subconscious mind so that you can behave differently in the future with very little effort. With hypnosis, you’re communicating directly with your subconscious mind, which allows you to easily update outdated, limiting beliefs, with positive, helpful beliefs.
