There are two key concepts for understanding why hypnosis is such an important tool for creating life changes.
Homeostasis: The innate, unconscious drive to “stay the same,” which means resisting all changes at a subconscious level. Although we may desire a change in our feelings, reactions, or habits, our subconscious defense mechanisms seek to maintain the status quo at a deeper level, thereby resisting all efforts to change. While talking, planning, and rationally understanding behavior are essential concepts, they do not address our subconscious need to sabotage our success or resist our desire for change.
Neuroplasticity: The brain’s ability to change throughout an individual’s life, impacting their personal, spiritual, and behavioral levels. Our capacity to alter beliefs, emotional responses, and behavioral habits is dependent on the flexibility of our mind. Hypnotherapy utilizes tools such as hypnosis, therapeutic imagery, NLP, mindfulness, and others to foster internal, emotional, and behavioral flexibility necessary to overcome homeostasis and release our subconscious needs to sabotage our success or resist our desires for change.
Think of a Hypnotherapist as a Life Coach for the Subconscious Mind.
