Can Everyone Be Hypnotized?

Hi Everyone, 

Welcome to my newest blog post, I have not done one in a while, so it's a privilege to be able to find the time to write a fresh blog post on this special day. These posts are not really planned out that much but it's really whatever I am thinking during a particular week or day :) ..So today I am going to bring it right back to basics this time and will explain what exactly is the 'hypnotic state of mind' and how it's quite possible that you have already been hypnotized, even without you knowing....

I still have people say to me that 'Oh Trevor I can't be hypnotized' and 'It doesn't work for me', etc. etc. When someone says this, it's a really case of not actually understanding what hypnosis is and in some cases still buying into the 'myths' about hypnosis, for example that hypnosis is some mystical state or spell that only an all powerful hypnotist can put you into. You will also hear people regularly use the term 'going under hypnosis'. Unfortunately some of these myths are propagated by TV, radio and glossy mags which misinform people, usually though 30 second soundbytes.  'Hypnotic stage' and 'mentalist' shows also, while entertaining, do not do anything to dispel those false myths. 

The truth is that all hypnosis is 'Self-Hypnosis' and everyone has experienced it. Have you ever for example 'daydreamed'? or become lost in a moment? or lost in a song? Well if you have that is the hypnotic state. Anytime you go within yourself and the outside world seems to fade away...we all do this, in fact in order to go asleep at night (and wake up in the morning) one must pass though the hypnotic state. Even though you might hear a stage hypnotist saying it sometimes, hypnosis is however NOT 'sleep' but a state of focused concentration as our mind and body relaxes. Whenever your mind and body relaxes that 'IS' the hypnotic state. Even watching the TV, have a look a peoples eyes as they glaze over and enter into the hypnotic 'trance' state. Hypnosis is all around us!

With my clients, I sometimes use the analogy of an artist, who is about to begin a new painting..
well..they start with a blank canvass right? no clutter? So coming into my office is really like leaving all the day to day clutter (worry, stress, job, etc.) and relaxing your mind and body so that you can learn something new, look at things with new eyes (with a new perspective) and accept all of the concepts and suggestions that I present during the hypnosis. As a Certified Consulting Hypnotist I am trained  to facilitate that hypnotic state for people. Like a guide, I bring them on a journey of wonderful  healing and transformation. Going into the hypnotic state in itself is not 'the end' but rather a means to an end. It is up to everyone to 'want' to make the changes within themselves on the journey. It would be a bit like me guiding someone through an orchard, at then end of it they still could well have no apples...in other words it up to each client to pick the apples and make sure they get all the benefits from it just by simple following all instructions and committing to it fully :) 

When we are in the 'waking' state this is sometimes called the 'Beta' state of awareness. Then when our mind and body relaxes and we go into the hypnotic state it is often called the 'Alpha' state. Once we are in this state we begin to use our 'right' brain much more, meaning our imaginative, visual and creative faculties come to the surface. You see, we live in a dominant 'left' brained society which is very logical and linear, but sometimes can hold us back and give us false thoughts and doubts. It is often called the 'monkey mind' which holds our limitations in place. When an individual enters into the hypnotic state, the critical factor of the conscious monkey mind is by-passed. We can then allow out our full creativity, potential and belief in ourselves. We access our 'inner knowing' and 'higher selves'. Doing this, we can learn so much better and re-wire and re-program ourselves in so many helpful and beneficial ways. So, whether it be to stop smoking, lose weight or get rid of stress, the hypnotic state is a wonderful thing. Part of every program I deliver is teaching Self' Hypnosis, so you can continue to experience the benefits from hypnosis long after you leave my office! I hope you learned sometime from this blog post, so until next time ......wishing ALL a beautiful week :)

Hi Everyone and welcome to my first blog of 2017. This is now my second blog in a row focusing on the subject of 'weight control' and 'weight loss'. The reasons I am focusing on this subject is that it is such an issue now for many people and I offer a great weight control program is help! In 2015 the Irish Times, reported that Ireland is on course to become the most obese country in Europe, according to the latest figures from World Health Organisation (WHO) experts. By 2030 Europe will face an obesity crisis of “enormous proportions”, said the report.1

'Permanent' Weight Loss covers many different things, i.e. what you are eating, when you are eating, how you are eating and in what quantities; It's about learning about nutrition and listening to the needs of your body. It is about being active and utilizing your body; It's about making all these changes, but doing so in a seamless way that integrates into your daily life. Making these changes should not be a 'chore' or feel like something that you do not want to do. This is not a 'conscious mind' (will power) change. With hypnosis we by-pass the critical factor of the conscious mind (that holds our limitations in place), to access the subconscious mind where we can make changes to behaviors, habits and most important allow you to make healthy choices, leaving unhealthy choices for other people to choose. As an example, have you ever experienced that the harder you try to do something the harder it gets? Or at least imagining trying to 'fit a square into a circle', which of course will never work and is very frustrating! If you can look at hypnosis as making it easy, really putting a 'circle into a circle'. Another way to look at it is a jigsaw and my Weight Control Program brings ALL of the pieces to the table.

Reaching your ideal weight is also about changing your self image and most importantly believing in your own ability to achieve your ideal weight, shape and size. It's about believing in the hypnotic process and committing 100% to the program. The truth is that in many instances my clients deep down have an 'inner knowing' of what is right and wrong when it comes to weight management. The relaxed nature of my hypnotic office just creates the right environment for our subconscious higher selves re-learn and makes these life changing truths and suggestions a reality. You can make these changes a reality too. Call now on (086) 8211677. To finish this blog post I want to provide an example of how these changes have already manifested themselves for a former client of mine, Daisy: "I hope all is well with you. I said I'd give you an update; I found an old picture and decided to make a before and after if you wanted it (attached).. I was never able to find a good one before. I'm doing well, maintaining at between 11st 7lb and 11st 10lb. It's so difficult to believe that a year ago I was in the middle of the program. I don't have any real problems now with food. I use my breathing and mindfulness to deal with any cravings and it works very well still! Thanks so much!" - Congrats Daisy!!
