When I love myself enough, I quit wishing my life looked some other way and began to see that as it is, my life serves my evolution.
~Kim McMillen (When I Loved Myself Enough)
We are all on an adventure called LIFE. Sometimes the adventure brings to us bounty beyond our wildest expectations, and sometimes it brings us challenges and lessons we need to learn and overcome. Regardless of what LIFE brings to us, we keep jouney’ing on – exploring, discovering, living.
Hypnotherapy is a gentle therapy that will help mould your behaviour, emotional content, and attitudes, for a positive life change. Hypnotherapy also helps mitigate and minimise a wide range of challenges and helps enhance personal development.
At Divine Aspect, hypnosis creates an environment by which you can access their inner resources in their own, unique way. These sessions are programmed specifically for you, and you have complete control of the session. We tailor make programmes to help with a wide range of challenges and conditions that prevent you from embracing their authentic selves. Programmes we specialize in include:
When you hear the word hypnosis, what comes to mind is an ominous, goateed man waving a pocket watch back and forth, magically enabling his victim into a zombie-like state. Once hypnotized, the subject is compelled to obey, no matter how strange or immoral the request.
This popular representation bears no resemblance to actual hypnotism. Subjects in a hypnotic trance do not lose control -- they have absolute free will. And they're not really in a semi-sleep state – they are in a deeply relaxed, hyperattentive state.
It is a trance state characterized by extreme suggestibility, relaxation and heightened imagination. It is most often compared to daydreaming, or the feeling of "losing yourself" in a book or movie. You are fully conscious, but you tune out most of the stimuli around you. You focus intently on the subject at hand, to the near exclusion of any other thought.
In this special mental state, people feel uninhibited and relaxed. In this state, people are also highly suggestible. The subject's sense of safety and morality remain entrenched throughout the experience, however. A hypnotist can't get you to do anything you don't want to do.
The predominant school of thought on hypnosis is that it is a way to access a person's subconscious mind directly. Normally, you are only aware of the thought processes in your conscious mind. However, unbeknownst to you, your conscious mind is working hand-in-hand with your subconscious mind, the unconscious part of your mind that does your "behind the scenes" thinking.
Your subconscious also takes care of all the stuff you do automatically. You don't actively work through the steps of breathing minute to minute -- your subconscious mind does that. You don't think through every little thing you do while driving a car -- a lot of the small stuff is thought out in your subconscious mind. Your subconscious also processes the physical information your body receives.
In short, your subconscious mind is the real brains behind the operation. When you're awake, your conscious mind works to evaluate a lot of these thoughts, make decisions and put certain ideas into action. It also processes new information and relays it to the subconscious mind. But when you're asleep, the conscious mind gets out of the way, and your subconscious has free reign.
Experts theorize that the deep relaxation and focusing exercises of hypnotism work to calm and subdue the conscious mind so that it takes a less active role in your thinking process. In this state, you're still aware of what's going on, but your conscious mind takes a backseat to your subconscious mind. Effectively, this allows you and the hypnotist to work directly with the subconscious mind directly.
Whether or not hypnosis is actually a physiological phenomenon, millions of people do practice hypnotism regularly, and millions of subjects report that it has worked on them.
