HOW HYPNOTHERAPY, THERAPEUTIC IMAGERY & MEDITATION CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE
How Does Hypnotherapy Work?
Hypnotic techniques are used to induce deep relaxation and an altered state of consciousness. Hypnosis occurs naturally to each of us on a daily basis, so anyone can be hypnotized. While in hypnosis, you are keenly focused and very receptive to ideas or images, but a hypnotherapist does not control your mind or free will. On the contrary, hypnosis actually teaches you to master your various states of awareness in order to positively affect your bodily functions and psychological responses. Hypnosis lowers blood pressure and heart rate, and changes certain types of brain wave activity. In this relaxed state, you feel at ease physically yet fully awake mentally and are highly responsive to suggestion.
How Can Hypnotherapy Change Behavior?
When something happens to us, we remember it and associate a certain behavior in response. Each time a similar event occurs, our physical and emotional reactions attached to the memory are repeated. These reactions are sometimes unhealthy. A hypnotherapist guides you to recall the event that led to the associated reaction, then helps separate the memory from the learned behavior by using the power of suggestion to replace unhealthy reactions with new, healthier ones.

What Is Therapeutic Imagery?
Your five senses filter and store information from your daily life as picture stories in the subconscious mind—these become memories to which you develop positive and negative associations. Your memories and associations represent the knowns of your existence, the collection of your experiences, and comprise your life script. Therapeutic imagery is a means of casting your picture stories into a different light, shifting perspective and challenging the established mental, emotional, and physiological responses triggered by your associations to these known experiences. You begin encountering life in new and enlightened ways, and are able to rewrite a more effective and rewarding life script.
How Are Hypnotherapy & Therapeutic Imagery Used Together?
A heightened state of receptivity through hypnosis, modification of unhealthy behaviors with hypnotic suggestion, and the meaningful process of discovering and engaging your personal images, enables your mind and body to manifest and achieve goals in infinite measures. The process compels the deepest parts of your consciousness to embrace and overcome challenges in a manner which many find to be a kind of valiant journey or quest that, once recognized, cannot be denied or refused.

What Is The Difference Between Hypnosis, Self-Hypnosis and Meditation?
Hypnosis, self-hypnosis, and meditation are all altered states of consciousness that facilitate positive personal changes and connect with deeper dimensions of the psyche. Self-hypnosis is a mental skill enabling you to guide yourself into a trance state as self-administered suggestions and affirmations orient your mind into new experiences of awareness, progressively coaxing you into deeper levels of physical and mental relaxation.
Meditation brings about harmonious control of the physical self and quiets the mind by drawing upon the process of attentive relaxation. Focusing upon the flow of breathing while concentrating on the present moment is central to this practice.
While hypnosis, self-hypnosis, and meditation are separate disciplines, they share common principles. Most importantly, they all engage the power of the subconscious mind to connect mind, body, and spirit, allowing you to experience greater self-comprehension, relaxed self-control, existential centeredness, and enlightenment.
What Is A Life Coach?
Life coaching is a form of mentoring that helps you improve your life in specific ways. Common examples are changing careers, finding a healthy relationship, making more money by taking business and earning potential to a new level, achieving artistic success, attaining a certain physique, or deepening self-understanding through higher consciousness and spiritual enlightenment. Techniques such as stress and time management, self-hypnosis and meditation, energy healing and holistic health, synergizing the habit mind and the law of attraction are used to help you realize the results you desire. Hypnotherapy and therapeutic imagery utilize cutting edge approaches that are remarkably effective as a means of motivational empowerment.
