Tapping in to the Unconscious Mind
Conscious vs. Unconscious
The conscious mind is that part of you that you are aware of right now. Everything else is unconscious. Your unconscious mind is responsible for the millions of chemical, neural and biological reactions that take place each second to keep you alive, including beating your heart, over 100,000 time/day and breathing over 15,000 times/day.
The unconscious mind maintains a storage bank of memories that includes everything that has ever happened to you – every experience, relationship, and all you have learned is stored in your unconscious mind – permanently. Most importantly, the memories of the emotions and environment that accompanied the experience are recorded – perfectly!
Tapping in to the unconscious mind
It is estimated that less than 3% of us utilise the potential of our unconscious mind. 60 years ago, scientific consensus believed that it was impossible for the human body to run a four-minute mile. Roger Bannister believed it was possible. He achieved this in 1954, and other athletes began to perform the same feat within months.
These athletes did not do any ‘special’ training to equal this feat, they just knew it was now possible. They had simply changed their belief and therefore removed the limit the conscious mind had set, so they could now tap into the limitless possibilities of their unconscious mind.
The conscious mind sets limits, but when you let the unconscious mind take over you can achieve what was thought to be impossible.
The power of hypnosis is the ability to communicate with the unconscious mind and make change happen.
Neuroscience and Hypnosis
Important discoveries in neuroscience are providing evidence that the most effective way to change the neural pathways in the brain is through accessing the unconscious mind. The best way to access the subconscious is through hypnosis.
Dr. Bruce Lipton is a cellular biologist, author and international speaker. He states:
“the wisdom of your cells is a new biology that will profoundly change civilisation and the world we live in. This new biology takes us from the belief that we are victims of our genes, that we are biochemical machines, that life is out of our control, into another reality, a reality where our thoughts, beliefs and mind control our genes, our behaviour and the life we experience. This new science takes us from victim to creator, we are very powerful in creating and unfolding the lives that we lead. This is knowledge of ‘self’ and ‘self power’.
Many people are crippled by a problem, fear, behaviour or disease that has been handed down through the family and feel doomed to accept this as their path too. But this is not the case as we now understand the brain has a neuroplasticity and that new neural pathways can be created, which literally change the way we think, feel and act.
Hypnotherapy can create powerful change, strengthening new pathways in the brain. Ultimately it puts you back in charge of your life by effectively removing unwanted habits, behaviours, fears, anxiety and feeling ‘stuck’. This will give you clarity and focus to achieve what you want. It is essentially a rewiring.
