Hypnosis works by overloading your senses. What does that mean exactly? Basically, you want to engage your different senses at the same time.
Remember, hypnosis is a state of learning. Everybody has their own unique learning process. Thus, one person may simply need to visualize or imagine pictures. They’ll find they are able to go into a state of hypnosis quickly with this method. Others may have to burn incense at the same time. Still others can only go into state if they are sitting on a hard chair because of the tactile response.
This is why certain guided meditations or other hypnosis downloads may work great for some people. For others, that same audio may not be effective. It’s not that the audio is good or bad. It simply may or may not be effective for your learning style.
When I am working with people in private sessions, I can test for your learning style. I can also observe your process of overload. Then make adjustments on the fly. This allows me to take you into the appropriate state of hypnosis quickly. When working with an an audio download, you may have to experiment with different styles. It may take you a bit to find the style, the voice, and the rhythm that works best for you.
This process of overload is what actually creates the door into the subconscious mind. This door is our access. This is how one learns. When this overload is achieved, your body and mind’s natural response is to go into a state of relaxation. It’s actually a result of the fight/flight response that is triggered by the overload.
Keep this in mind when you’re listening to the stop smoking hypnosis download at the end of this article. Do what you can to engage your other senses while listening.
