Watch swingingWhen people think of hypnosis, they think of one of two things. The first they may think of is a man in a turban dangling a necklace in front of them. The necklace swings side to side, like the pendulum on a clock and hearing the words “you…are getting…sleepy”. People on stage Or… maybe a man inviting people to join him on stage and have more fun than anyone else in the room. In no time, the people on stage are squawking like chickens or barking like dogs. Sometimes the people on stage have no idea about the things they did until the end of the show or see the

recorded video. Stage hypnosis is purely for entertainment, but it does demonstrate that the mind is capable of incredible focus and concentration.

Hypnosis isn't merely for entertainment; it is also an incredible tool for healing. People often turn to hypnosis when they feel they have no other options for healing, but after reading this article you will most likely agree it may be a great option to implement early on. The body knows how to heal itself; the brain simply needs to focus either consciously or sub-consciously on healing the issue. The conscious mind is the rational part of the brain that thinks things through, evaluates and problem solves in a conscious or awake state. The sub-conscious is the part of the brain that never rests; it works 24/7 so you don’t have to think about things like breathing, it happens automatically when the subconscious tells you to breathe in or out, or your heart to beat. You don’t have to think about either of these things whether you are awake or not, so why not get that part of the brain to focus 24/7 on healing just as it does for breathing? Studies show positive results from hypnotherapy, especially when it comes to healing pain.

At Clear Koala, we want to see you heal; no matter what path you take to get there. In this article, we'll explore how hypnosis performs in natural healing.

What is hypnosis?

Hypnosis is an enhanced state of concentration. For example, when you find yourself so into an activity that you lose track of your surroundings or time, you have entered that enhanced state of concentration, sometimes referred to as “hypnotic trance”.

What about learning self-hypnosis?

There are instances where some people are unable to afford certified hypnosis treatment. Other times, they may find they don’t feel good about someone else guiding them through the hypnosis process possibly because of past traumas. Learning self-hypnosis is obviously a viable choice. According to an article published in Psychology Today, self-hypnosis is a relatively easy skill to learn and it does take time and practice to learn it effectively. When you practice self-hypnosis often, you will experience the same results as you would from a certified hypnotist.

The most successful self-hypnotists know they need a place where no one will disturb them. These places need to be somewhere that kids, coworkers, or your boss won’t bother you. Even five minutes a day is enough to put yourself in that relaxed state, and focus on whatever needs attention. Once learned, another positive is bringing yourself back to full awareness feeling energized and feeling better than you felt before you began. There is no downside to hypnosis, whether self guided or guided by someone else.

It’s OK to start small, once a day or a few times a week. When you master this skill, you can work your way up to practicing self-hypnosis as often as you wish. You will be glad you gained another tool to help you manage your pain or anxiety.
