Hypnosis has been gaining a lot of popularity lately and for good reason.
To understand why hypnosis is so important for creating the changes we want, there are two key concepts that need to be explained.
Homeostasis and neuroplasticity are two concepts that can help us better understand how hypnosis can create long-lasting changes in behavior and beliefs. These concepts actually explain why accessing the subconscious mind has been an important part of healing among every culture throughout history.
Homeostasis: Homeostasis is our unconscious attempt to maintain a sense of normalcy, which means pushing back against change on a subconscious level. While we may want to find new ways to feel and react, at a deeper level our subconscious defense mechanisms try to maintain the status quo and prevent any change. That’s why talking about feelings, planning changes and dealing with them rationally are important concepts – they’re all on the surface while not addressing the deep-seeded subconscious needs of resistance.
Neuroplasticity: Neuroplasticity is the brain’s ability to change throughout our lifetime. Our ability to form new beliefs, emotional responses, and behavioral habits depends on our flexibility- or mind. But not all people have the right tools to promote change internally; hypnotherapy is one way that hypnotherapists use these tools in a session so people can overcome homeostasis and release their subconscious needs to sabotage their success or resist desired changes in behavior.
People often think of hypnotherapy as a way to eliminate negative thoughts. A solid analogy for this is a life coach for your subconscious mind.
It’s normal to experience changes in your beliefs and emotions throughout your lifetime. You can change them with a few simple tools, like hypnotherapy. Hypnotherapy helps you by facilitating the emotional and behavioral flexibility needed to release subconscious needs that are resisting change or success. The process also helps you overcome cognitive homeostasis, which can keep us at the same place mentally.
Hypnotherapy is a simple, effective way to help you make real positive changes in your life. It can help you overcome obstacles and achieve success.
