Hypnosis – Using your mind for the better with Lorraine Flaherty
SATURDAY 21st May at 3pm-6pm Venue: Sanesi Yoga & Co. Studio - Ealing Broadway Cost: £30 pp
About Self-Hypnosis: Self hypnosis is a state which is very similar to meditation however it is much easier to achieve and in many ways is much more beneficial. Both involve a focused state of attention, but a little like the yin yang symbol, one is active and one is passive. Meditation is known for its beneficial qualities, the aim is to achieve a state of inner stillness and if lucky whilst in that state insights emerge. However, it is often difficult to achieve that inner stillness as the part of mind which can be referred to as the busy ‘chattery monkey mind’ is prone to acting just like a five year old and really does not understand why you would want to sit for 30 minutes and effectively do nothing….. and just like a child it will go out of its way to distract you and keep you occupied with unnecessary thinking; if it cannot see the point it will not participate. Hypnosis on the other hand is used as a more active state and there is always a point to it, an intention and a journey into the subconscious where information can be gathered or installed.
In the hypnotic process the child or ‘chattery monkey’ part of the mind is involved in the process and given the important task of following instructions and observing the experience. As a result this part of the mind is always willing to join in. Part of the process involves the creation of an inner sanctuary; a place within the mind that you can go to whenever you need to escape from the daily grind and the troubles of the outside world. Whilst in this place positive suggestions, affirmations and visualisations of how things can be are embedded into the subconscious and over time they begin to have a positive effect.
One important thing to know is that all hypnosis is really self hypnosis as those who experience it are always in control and are able to decide how deep and how long they want to remain in the trance state. It is very unlike stage hypnosis - which is when someone has handed over their control to the hypnotist; they do this as soon as they volunteer to be a part of the show.
