Do you know anyone who has a condition, an issue or a habit they want to change but just cannot seem to be able to do it? Even strong willpower and self-discipline is not sufficient to achieve lasting results.
Why is it so difficult for the smoker to just quit or for the overweight person to just eat better? Or, how come that someone just cannot get over that really illogical fear;
the insomniac cannot find a healthy sleeping pattern, the addict keeps on returning to the addiction. The depressed person does not find the “silver lining” and all then there are all those with physical ailments or chronic pain for which the doctors have no real explanation.
These are just a few common concerns a professional hypnosis practitioner deals with regularly in their practice. Why does it work and often so very quick and lasting?
The sheer magic we observe during a stage hypnosis show makes most of us believe that the state of hypnosis is a quick fix, that the person is under the spell of the hypnotists and will willingly follow even the most outrageous suggestion like clucking like a chicken or suddenly be fluent in an alien language. While this can be great fun for volunteers and the audience, it does leave a very false impression about what happens in the hypnosis practice to help people to achieve their desires. In fact, the thought of being under the control of another creates a lot of anxiety and fear so many will not even consider giving this powerful practice a go.
The truth is that when we truly wish to change and just cannot – then there are underlying reasons, which are out of reach of our conscious, logical mind. As an example, these deep underlying reasons are so powerful that a third of smokers continue to light up despite being diagnosed with lung cancer, according to a study. Of the approximately 5,000 U.S. lung and colorectal cancer patients surveyed, 39 percent of the former were still smoking within the year of their diagnosis.

These reasons are very individual and so are the solutions. Professionally trained hypnosis practitioners will guide their clients through carefully facilitated techniques in the natural state of hypnosis to reach a deep understanding and knowing. This then offers the opportunity to re-evaluate the deep inner dynamics and the client has the ability to adjust them to achieve the goal.
Still sound like magic? It is not. There are many aspects that need to be in place for this “magic” change to occur, apart from a professional facilitation. A good hypnosis practitioner will alleviate all concerns and explain as much as possible before even attempting to assist the client into the natural state of hypnosis. Just as the soil in a garden should be prepared for seeds, so will client and practitioners work through layers to ensure that the new mind seeds can flourish. And yet this can happen astoundingly quickly, some clients achieve their goals as quickly as within 3 sessions.
If you consider getting help with hypnosis, choose your practitioner carefully and you will experience a journey to learn how ready you really are for the change you desire, what is holding you back and through repeated times in the state of hypnosis you learn to let go into the exciting world of your own inner mind where you can “reprogram” yourself, so to speak.
