Close your eyes and imagine biting a lemon. Do you recognise of your mouth watering? Consciously you know that there is no lemon. Subconscious mind, however, does not recognise the difference between the reality and the conceivable reality.
“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.” – Carl Jung
Conscious Mind vs Subconscious Mind
Subconscious mind is much larger than your conscious mind. It runs your body without you consciously giving orders for your heart to beat, for your blood to circulate and for your kidneys to excrete urine. It is where your long term memories, beliefs, habits, intuition, creativity, automatic body functions and emotions are stored. Conscious mind is responsible for planning, will power, critical thinking, short term memories, decisions and all actions that are performed while you are conscious. Most of our behaviour is governed by the subconscious mind.
Focus and pay attention to your breathing for a moment. Now your conscious mind is controlling your breathing, you can consciously fasten, slow down and deepen your breaths. When you let go of your focus your subconscious mind will takeover again.
Is your problem that you take yourself everywhere you go? Are your have depression thoughts looping between your ears again and again? Do you allow self destroying habits take over your life? Do you spend more time in fear than in love?
Hypnosis is an effective way to access and alter the programs your mind unconsciously run that are not helpful any more: useless habits, addictions, irrational fear, debilitating emotions. Hypnosis will help you to align conscious and subconscious minds to bring the desired positive change.
Session by session you will also notice that your confidence is improved and you enjoy your life much more.
