How do I know if I have been hypnotised?

March 1st, 2018

How do I know if I have been hypnotised?  Well hypnosis happens all the time when you let your logical mind drift and your unconscious mind listens:

  • like when you are watching TV and an advert catches your eye or some other idea
  • It happens when people play violent video games or watch porn… actual physical changes happen in the brain because of this choice to allow the game or film to hypnotise you.  It pays to be careful.
  • It usually involves being relaxed but this is not necessary
  • And if you want to make a change, just imagine that the change is happening or has happened. Add emotion so you feel more committed. Your brain can’t tell the difference. They have proved that with MRI scans

The thing is that 90% of your mind is unconscious and it is the boss, it controls you. So if you want to change your mind, your habits or your approach to any situation you need to talk to your unconscious mind and this is where hypnosis helps

Very occasionally people ask, “how do I know if I have been hypnotised?” The question usually comes from very analytical people like engineers and accountants although most of my clients from these professions have no problems at all.

The thing is that for much of your life you have probably been using your wonderful logical mind to make changes… so stop and ask yourself “how has that worked for you? Have I made all the changes that I want or need?”

If you want to change your unconscious mind you need to stop trying to control things logically and give your unconscious mind a chance to help you.

And if what you have been doing does not work, you should ask for help. Einstein very correctly said that the definition of insanity is continuing to do the same thing and expecting a different result. Accept that it is not working and come and get some help.

My self-help workshop on March 24th is a start that will provide you with some very useful and practical techniques along with some of the science behind them to help the logical people.

Then if this is not enough for you, just ask me for help. Book in directly from the website or phone me on 08 83659513.

Long-term easy change happens when people shut their sceptical logical mind up and let their unconscious mind (90% of their mind) work effectively on their problem.

People come to me for help in many areas and the main ones are:

  • Quitting smoking and other habits
  • Anxiety, stress, depression, trauma and PTSD
  • Business stress – not everyone realises how big this can be and that it can also result in PTSD if it is not sorted out
  • Bullying
  • Weight loss

The processes I use work quickly, gently and very effectively provided that you want them to. Whatever your issue, for long-term change to occur you need to get your unconscious mind onside.

Stress is held in your body and it remembers

How did that calm person who always copes suddenly, out of the blue became massively stressed and have a breakdown? Nothing special happened.

The thing is that stress keeps adding up, like continually blowing up a balloon until it reaches breaking point and a lot of people are like swans gliding apparently serenely along. What you don’t see is how hard they may be paddling under water, especially when the currents are strong or the water turbulent.

The problem with that hidden turbulenc...

Why is work stress getting worse?

Work stress in increasing in our society and especially for business owners and managers. Stress builds up, a bit like continually putting more air into a balloon until it reaches bursting point or overwhelm.

You need real emotional resilience and strength to help you cope with all that day-to-day stress and overwhelm.

The thing is that when you become overwhelmed, the part of your brain that acts as a librarian, (hippocampus) stops filing things efficiently and calls in your "security guard...

Its actually not the problem – it’s a solution

Weight gain and excess weight is not a problem…

Yes, you did read that right. It is solution that your body has found to solve the real problem. So the first thing to do on any weight loss journey is to work out reasons WHY your body wants to insulate itself.

That inner change has to happen before sustainable weight loss. If the inner change does not happen, you stay on the diet yo-yo.

Your body is much more complicated that simply balancing food in with food and exercise out. The par...
