Hi, Hypnosis Friends & Enthusiasts & Interested Parties!
I began my latest go-round of the self hypnosis course at Bellevue College last night. GOOD turnout! There were a few people who had experienced hypnosis before and a majority who had not.
It’s fun. It’s my pleasure to introduce people to what I love. What I appreciate. What I know to be massive power for positive changes: Hypnosis.
I brought the group into a nice trance and set an “anchor” for rehypnosis–that they control. In their own time and their own space and for their own well-formed goals. I asked the group what their first experience of hypnosis was like.
There was a young girl in my class. Her answer: “Elation!” Yes, that’s precisely what hypnosis feels like. Another girl said it feels similar to the state she goes into while praying, it feels like “prayer.” Yes, that’s what hypnosis feels like. One girl said her body felt “heavy.” Yes, that’s what hypnosis feels like. A man (who seemed disappointed–who doesn’t YET understand the power of the state) said it simply feels like “Relaxing.” Yes, that’s what hypnosis feels like. My personal sense of hypnosis is a heightened focus accompanied with a profound sense of control and well-being. That’s what hypnosis feels like.
It’s a very individual experience. Bottom line: it feels GOOD! But more than that, it does good. For your life. This isn’t zen, like meditation, where attaining the state is the goal. No. It’s USING the state to stimulate your mind to create change that’s desired and useful. That’s hypnotherapy. And that’s self hypnosis as well.
The class is going well. There’s a second evening of fun and adventure and experience and learning ahead for this group. Makes me happy! 🙂
