Hypnosis: Meditation with a Purpose

“Anybody can pilot a ship when the sea is calm.”
Navjot Singh Sidju

Meditation and Hypnosis are essentially the same thing.  With meditation, you’re learning to focus your mind to achieve a state of calm, heightened awareness or perhaps healing.  With hypnosis, a hypnotherapist assists you in focusing your mind to achieve a specific result, such as quitting smoking, losing weight, or boosting your self esteem.  With both meditation and hypnotherapy, the process involves arriving at a theta or gamma (meditative) brain wave pattern.

As a hypnotherapy student, for over a hundred hours, I was either studying hypnosis, practicing hypnosis, or being put into a hypnotic trance.   The more times you go into a hypnotic state, the easier and more rapid it will become, and the deeper the trance.  This drastically speeds-up results, which is why hypnotherapy can eliminate problems in just a few sessions (vs. psychotherapy which can take years).

In a hypnotic state, as in meditation, your intuition may become heightened.  After just a few hypnosis classes, I noticed the colours of people’s auras becoming visibly bolder.  Many of my classmates had what I call ‘healing hands’ which indicates they can heal with touch.  For me, this shows-up as a vibrant blue glow around people’s hands.   Certainly, throughout the course, there was a ton of healing going on.

Georgia Cannon of the Ontario Hypnosis Centre demonstrates what hypnosis is like. Try it.

Will Hypnosis Work For You?
If you practiced the exercise and noticed some of your senses were activated (e.g. taste, touch, smell, sight, sound), hypnosis will likely work very well for you.
