Imagine that you had the ability to help another person influence their subconscious mind because you knew how to use hypnosis. Consider what you may change in your own life with that knowledge. Just like you, many of my students, to include myself, have had these exact same thoughts.
Have you ever wondered why the use of professional hypnosis has results that seem to be instant? You may even personally know someone who had fought for years to stop a bad habit such as nail biting, smoking or over eating and because of hypnosis they were able to make the rapid and permanent change that they wanted, or perhaps someone who had struggled with anxieties, fears or phobias achieved these same results just as quickly.
These rapid and permanent changes were possible because trained hypnotists know how to work at the subconscious level, and here is why that is important: modern science shows that your senses receive about 12 million bits of information every second. At the conscious level you can only process about 40 bits of information per second. The remaining information is processed subconsciously. That creates a ratio of about 99.999 percent subconscious processing, to 0.001 percent actual conscious thinking. Numerous studies have shown that the information you receive “under the radar” of your conscious mind has a powerful effect on your behavior.
It is important to understand that these two parts of your mind are quite different, and both are equally necessary for you to be fully functional. However, they are uniquely specialized in their capabilities as well as the way in which they process your life’s experiences. Scientific studies have shown that the conscious mind is the analytical, decision making part of your mind. The subconscious mind is the habitual part, that is to say that it responds with learned behavioral responses that have become associated with a particular situation.
Your conscious mind sets goals, judges results and is limited to processing between 1 and 3 events at once, or as mentioned above, about 40 bits of information per second. Your subconscious mind can process thousands of events at once, and MILLIONS of bits of information per second (for example, monitoring all body functions). The conscious mind thinks abstractly and has a memory of about 20 seconds. The subconscious, on the other hand, is very literal and is responsible for maintaining your long term memory, attitudes, values, and BELIEFS.
As you can see just from its processing capacity alone, the subconscious mind plays a powerfully important role in your life. It is nearly impossible for you to achieve a goal if you are holding subconscious beliefs that are in conflict with your goal, no matter what it is. Even if you do achieve it, the subconscious will usually find or create a way to sabotage your success. Your subconscious programming takes over the instant your conscious mind becomes distracted and stops paying full attention. The fact is, as adults, we spend most of our time reacting to life rather than consciously creating it. Fortunately, there are many ways to change your beliefs at the subconscious level. The use of professional hypnosis has been shown in many studies to be the fastest.
A Survey of Psychotherapy Literature by Alfred A. Barrios, PhD., as early as the 1970s, revealed the following recovery rates:
Type of therapy Recovery rates Number of sessions
Hypnotherapy 93% 6
Behavior therapy 72% 22
Psychoanalysis 38% 600
This is why hypnosis, although not yet considered mainstream, is gaining in popularity all over the world. The demand for hypnotists in the United States is at an all-time high. Blue Cross of California, Florida and Minnesota, to name a few, have started Hypnotherapy Networks. Some Mayo clinics are openly using hypnosis as a treatment. As the demand for professional hypnosis increases the demand for qualified well trained hypnotists is also on the rise.
Tri-state Hypnosis Center here in Cincinnati, Ohio, helps to meet that demand. Being a Full-Service Hypnosis Center means we are able to help individuals with everyday issues such as stop smoking, nail biting, stress/anxiety, weight management to name a few as well as professionally training and certifying new hypnotists. Our continuing education programs offer training in advanced hypnotherapy and advance hypnosis techniques to professional hypnotists and hypnotherapists. Our training is for individuals who want to improve the quality of their own lives and/or help others improve theirs.
Regardless of what your ambitions are in your life today, whether it is for professional or personal improvement, knowing yourself (i.e., what is stored in your subconscious mind) can always render helpful and useful results no matter what questions or dreams you may have.
