Life originates in YOUR mind! You have your own unique perception of the life you are living that is totally different from anyone else¡¦s, because you are totally unique. Your dreams, your habits ¡V good and bad; your desires and accomplishments; all originate within your own mind. Even the pain you might feel is your brain¡¦s interpretation of a physical sensation. You have basically two parts to your mind¡Kyour conscious mind and your subconscious mind. Your conscious mind can only retain 7 plus or minus 2 bits of information at one time, so it bores very easily and wanders quite readily! Your subconscious mind, however, is virtually limitless in the amount of information it holds. Just the facts! It is similar to the CPU of a computer and holds every bit of information about you from day one. As you read this, you are not consciously thinking breathe in breathe out¡Krepeat if necessary! Your subconscious mind controls your autonomic system so you consciously don¡¦t even have to worry about your heart beating or your blood flowing etc. It¡¦s a good thing considering your conscious mind isn¡¦t up to handling such a huge demand! Your subconscious mind also holds your belief system. Those thoughts of right and wrong; good and evil etc., so if there is a negative belief (I¡¦m too fat; I can¡¦t quit smoking, or stop being afraid of snakes etc) that you wish to change; hypnosis is the way to go. Hypnosis uses your high degree of motivation to bypass the critical conscious mind (the one with your inhibitions) and replace the negative with beneficial and positive beliefs. Hypnosis helps you to rewrite the script of your life. You CAN achieve and accomplish anything you set your mind to! After all, we only use about 5 inches of a brain that is 5 miles long. Using hypnosis, whether in-office or via hypnotic and subliminal CDs (see expands that 5 inches and allows you access to your greatest ally¡KYOUR subconscious mind. YOU ARE IN CONTROL AT ALL TIMES and because of a built-in safety mechanism within each of our minds, YOU control the process completely. Hypnosis is a state of heightened awareness. I describe myself as being like an usher in a theatre: I use hypnosis to guide you to your seat (reach your goal)¡Kbut I cannot make you sit (accomplish it)! That is totally up to you!
