What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis is an altered state of consciousness, in which favourable suggestions are readily accepted, internalized and acted upon, and the unlimited power of the subconscious mind is utilized for healing, creativity, personal transformation and performance enhancement. It is essentially, with our understanding of the Quantum Field, a reorientation of one’s awareness, this reorientation process, opening up a field of infinite possibilities. Nothing can make medicine more holistic than this metaphysical tool.
It has been replete with myths and misunderstandings since Mesmer quite unjustifiably. It is perhaps the safest, most non-invasive healing modality and deserves better acceptance from the medical fraternity.
Modern hypnosis has evolved itself into a sophisticated, clinical speciality and needs to be treated as such. It is not the spiral wheel, the swinging pendulum or the authoritative command of the stage hypnotist any more.
