Fact or Fiction: How Reading a Book Can Solve the Hypnosis Controversy

The question of whether hypnosis is real or not has been a hot topic of discussion for over 200 years.

Exciting new research in the field of brain studies is now settling the argument once and for all!


Read a Good Book Lately: Then, Welcome to Hypnosis!

If you’ve ever lost yourself while reading a really good book, you’ve already been :::this::: close to hypnosis.

When you’re really into a book what happens?

  1. a) You feel incredibly relaxed,
  2. b) Have an amplified sense of imagination, and
  3. c) You are highly suggestible (more open to receiving and acting upon the suggestions of others, like the story the author is telling you).

Guess what? This is exactly what happens during hypnosis. It’s known as a trance state.

Truth About Hypnosis

Going Deep! Your Subconscious Mind in Action

To understand what’s going on in a trance state, we need to first define the difference between conscious and subconscious mind states.

Your conscious mind is associated with the left hemisphere of your brain. It is your “control center,” and it operates on deduction, reasoning and convention. It tells you what’s possible and not possible based on your past experiences.

On the other hand, your subconscious mind is aligned with the right side of your brain, which is responsible for creativity, freedom, and emotion.

It is more holistic, emotive, and universal. It solves Big Picture problems. It allows you to go beyond “reason,” and frees you from convention.

Researchers believe that trance states are activated when you are able to circumvent the inhibitions and walls set up by your conscious mind and begin accessing the subconscious.

More specifically, when you can “short circuit” the inhibitions and “can’ts” that your conscious mind has set up, you can do many of the things that are associated with truly therapeutic hypnosis, e.g., break addictions, overcome phobias, work through deep-seated emotional issues (psychiatric hypnotherapy), ease chronic pain (medical hypnotherapy), and even solve crimes (forensic hypnosis is fascinating field of study being explored by law enforcement agencies now).

 

Scanning Rhythms: Your Brain Can’t Lie

But, is there science to support this hypothesis?

Using electroencephalographs, or EEGs, experts studying the effects of hypnosis on the cerebral cortex have documented that activity in the left hemisphere of the cerebral cortex decreases during hypnosis. At the same time, brain activity in the right hemisphere increases.

Why is this important? It shows that hypnosis is able to pacify the conscious mind and its logical and “limiting” functions.

At the same time, it also shows that the subconscious mind – with its creativity, emotiveness, imagination – takes control.

These findings prove that something researchers long believed to be true about the effects of hypnosis are indeed accurate. 

“A Trance State Sounds Pretty Awesome: How Can You Turn It On?”

Okay, so how does hypnosis activate this trance state?

Researchers believe that hypnosis calms your left brain and conscious mind. With your logical-self taken out of the picture, you’re more able to directly connect with your subconscious mind.

In this state, you are highly suggestible. In other words, you’re able to believe, enact, and go for things that your conscious, logical mind might have kept you from believing you could do.

It allows you to free yourself from convention, from being limited based on the outcomes of your past experiences, and to experience the world and yourself in it in new and powerful ways.

For example, hypnosis can help boost your confidence, increase your brain power, aid in weight loss, increase your money-making potential, and take you to places you never believed you could go (much like that feeling you have when you’re reading a great book).

By short circuiting long-held self-beliefs and deep-seated behavioral patterns, hypnosis can often deliver real-world results that simply cannot be achieved in any other way… all because your brain allows you to believe in yourself in new and empowered ways.

1. Maintain a Positive Attitude
2. Believe in Your Abilities And the number one tip for successful weight loss

Looks pretty simple when you put it in a list, doesn’t it? Well, in many ways losing weight is just that simple. I should know! After all, I have lost and maintained the loss of 130 pounds. I know weight loss!

1. Maintain a Positive Attitude. Mean people suck. That bumper sticker just about says it all. Despite the fact that your body has excess weight to lose, LIFE IS GOOD! Realize the alternatives: you could be terminally ill, you could be homeless, you could be worse off than you are today. Look around at your life and be thankful for all that you do have. Smile at everyone you encounter in your day. Realize that you are a fabulous person on a wonderful journey. Don’t let anyone or anything get you down!

2. Believe in Your Abilities. So what if past diet attempts failed you. YOU are special, worthy of the best that life has to offer and you are capable of successfully changing your habits and adapting to a healthy lifestyle. You must believe that you can and will do this!

3. Learn from Your Mistakes. If you have a bad day and give in to over eating, learn from it. How can you decrease the frequency of bad days? How can you be better prepared and have healthier snack options on hand? Can you avoid buying unhealthy things that may tempt you? Learn from past mistakes and let that lesson help build your future.

4. Reward your Successes. Reward the positive actions that you do take, rather than punishing yourself for shortcomings. Doing this will help to rebuild your self-esteem and add fuel to your motor! Decide what treats you would like to get as a reward. They must be non-food related and something worth working to earn. For me, things like a manicure, new book, night at the movies or a trip to the art museum work well!

5. Take Steps Daily to Reach Your Goals. Each day, you must do something that will further your progress: be it reading a motivational book, listening to tapes, analyzing yourself or visualizing the future that you want for yourself. Make sure that each day you are moving in the right direction. Realize that plateaus and stumbles are bound to happen, but get back up quickly and take a step in the right direct, the direction of health!

6. Utilize a Support Network. When I lost my 130 pounds, I did it alone. Every day when I log onto my support group, I find an impassioned group of people all caring about each other’s journey. It creates an amazing synergy and support environment. Let it work for you!

7. Develop a Plan. Having a plan to follow is essential! Rome wasn’t built in a day. It took time and planning, but it was realized — just as your dreams will be if you follow a plan for success.

8. Set Realistic and Meaningful Goals. I get numerous emails from people saying things like, “I want to lose 30 pounds by my reunion in 5 weeks!” The time to have started planning for the reunion was many months ago. In 5 weeks, one should try to lose 2 pounds a week or 10 pounds. It is much more meaningful if this person would say, “I want to get healthy and lose 30 pounds — and to give themselves 6 months to do it in.” The reason and the timing must be valid.

9. Be Aware of Your Actions. I dedicate an entire section of my book, Awaken the Diet Within — From Overweight to Looking Great! to just this subject. Mindless eating must become a thing of the past.

10. Know Yourself. By this I mean that you need to take a good long look at yourself, who you are and what you want out of life. There is so much more to this life than just wanting to lose X number of pounds. You know it and I know it. Why!? Why do you want to lose weight? What is it going to change about your life? What do you want to do with your life?
