Hypnosis and Meditation
Hypnosis is about communicating with the subconscious, which operates around 88% of our lives. Yes, although it takes an astonishing amount of our time and effort, our conscious thinking mind is only in control 12% of the time.
The powerful subconscious mind is responsible for beating our hearts, blinking our eyes and breathing our bodies. The subconscious is also responsible for keeping us as safe as possible at all times. Which is why when we have experienced something traumatic or shocking, it’s not at all unusual to become jumpy, to have difficult calming due to being on alert all of the time. The subconscious may well have taken on the message that danger is lurking around every corner.
Hypnosis can be very helpful as you are experiencing grief, processing, and healing. It matters because the words we think, speak and hear are creating our truth. Quite literally. When we are hurting and all of our focus, thoughts, and conversations are about the depth of that pain, we are reinforcing these things within our subconscious.
Let me be very clear. I am not advocating denial! Hurt, worry, guilt, and all emotions matter. It’s not only not helpful, but actually detrimental to deny them. What is helpful is acknowledging, processing and then gently shifting our awareness by becoming aware of better feeling, more gentle thoughts and noticing what we think, say and hear.
This article is not related to grief, but it is an astoundingly clear example of the way what we see, hear and believe can shape our lives.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is Hypnosis?
Can I be hypnotized against my will?
NO! You cannot be hypnotized against your will. In fact, all hypnotism is actually self-hypnosis. The hypnotist is merely a guide, leading the subject into the relaxed state which allows the subject to accept the suggestions they prefer. This means you are the decision maker about what suggestions to accept and what to simply let go.
How will I feel if I’m hypnotized?
You will feel relaxed. You will be able to hear everything the hypnotist is saying to you. You may very well remember every word that was spoken.
What power does a hypnotist have over me when I’m hypnotized? Will they be able to make me quack like a duck or rob a grocery store?
Rest assured, as the hypnotic subject you will only accept the suggestions you choose to accept. If your hypnotist asks you to do something that you do not agree with for any reason at all, you will simply disregard the suggestion.
What if my hypnotist leaves the room and doesn’t return while I am under hypnosis, will I be stuck in a hypnotic state forever?
Here’s a bit of good news; If for any reason whatsoever, your hypnotist leaves the room while you are in a state of hypnosis and does not return you will either slip into a short restful nap or wake gently. The state of hypnosis cannot be maintained unless the hypnotist keeps speaking to maintain that condition.

The purpose of hypnosis is to speak directly to the subconscious, which is amazingly literal. The way this happens is really very straight forward. The client relaxes and just allows the positive suggestions offered by the hypnotist to settle into the subconscious. This is truly where the work happens, as the subconscious begins to accept the confidence building and positive suggestions, benefits are felt on a conscious level.Hypnosis is a completely natural state which you visit on a daily basis. Easily and naturally. That place that we sometimes think of as twilight, when we aren’t quite awake and not really asleep either. That’s trance, yes, you are experiencing hypnosis. Have you ever been so focused on the road when you are driving that you miss a traffic sign or don’t notice your turn? Think about that amazing movie that you were watching, you got so caught up that you may have jumped and spilled your popcorn when tapped on the shoulder. That highly focused state is a trance.

“Have you ever thought about being hypnotized? I’ve had the opportunity to be hypnotized because I want to lose weight. I have the evening cravings even if I’m not hungry. But what I have come to find after being hypnotized is not the loss of weight but the loss of inch. I feel more relaxed at night and don’t find myself out looking for things to munch on. With my clothes fitting better I seem to be more satisfied with how things are working with my body. So I personally would say take a chance you never will if you don’t give it a try.”
“I went to Sandy for help with my self-hypnosis for pain. Not only did she help me achieve self-hypnosis easier and deeper but after our visit, I had no pain for the first time since 10/13/1988 for the rest of the day. Sandy was very careful before we started to learn what I was trying to accomplish and be culturally appropriate.
Sandy is great! Use her services! NOW!”
