How Does Hypnosis Work?


Experts say that up to age 7, we walk around in a hypnotic state in which our subconscious mind is programmed with the 100,000+ rules we need to know to be a productive human being in society.  This programming creates our beliefs and programs, which are given to us by our parents, teachers, and others.

 These programs reside in our subconscious minds until we decide to change them.  How do we change the programming?  Two ways - repetition and hypnosis.


Repetition.  That "fake it till you make it" mentality.  If we do something enough, it gets programmed into our subconscious and we no longer need to think about it anymore.  It becomes a habit and we no longer need to think about doing it, we just do it.  The downside of repetition is that it takes a LOT of energy.  This is the will-power sourced motivation and determination.  It works, it just takes a lot of work.

Hypnosis.  On the other other hand, hypnosis is direct access to the subconscious mind.  Here we are able to see the programs and beliefs and intentionally reprogram those thoughts and beliefs to serve the us of today, rather than the child from years ago.  

Experts say 95% of our life comes from our subconscious mind - the programs and beliefs given to us by others.  Only 5% of our mind power comes from our conscious mind, the creative part that knows our wishes and desires.

If something is difficult for you to do "naturally", you are most likely working against your subconscious mind's beliefs and programs.  Look at the areas in your life where you struggle.  Then look at your programming.

Many of us have similar programs running through our subconscious minds that create the similar drama that we all deal with.  Here are a few examples:

  • I'm not good enough.

  • I can't do anything right.

  • I'm not working hard enough. 

  • I'm insignificant in this world.

  • I'm invisible.

  • I'm incapable of doing things right.

  • I always make bad choices.

  • I will never amount to anything.

  • I don't understand.  I'm so confused.

  • I'm fat, heavy, big, slow, ugly, lazy, dumb, stupid.

  • It's all my fault.

  • I am scared.

Is it any wonder with beliefs and programs like these we struggle with self-esteem, confidence, making decisions, setting and reaching goals?

With 5-PATH hypnosis and the advanced techniques involved, we are able to sort out the erroneous beliefs and programs, which are the root causes of most of our troubles.  Then you decide what you want your true beliefs and programs to be, and we integrate these insights back into your subconscious. 

This is how things that use to be so difficult before, now become easy.  It's because the new programs and beliefs are just a part of our subconscious mind and they automatically run 95% of our day, without any conscious effort.  

And this is how hypnosis works and gives us lasting results!
