Hypnosis is the bridge to the subconscious mind. Change cannot be had in the conscious mind. The subconscious mind is 90% stronger than the conscious mind.
The conscious mind holds linear and analytical thought, math and verbal skills. The subconscious holds the personality, moods, behavior, habits, memory bank, cognitive maps, and the Autonomic nervous system. The cognitive maps act as our autopilot and are used to automate behaviors (i.e. walking and talking without conscious thought of doing both tasks).
The subconscious mind houses our only two problem solvers: imagination and creativity. The conscious mind is receptive while the subconscious is responsive, and they are constantly exchanging information back and forth. For example, remembering is the process of retrieving information from the memory banks (subconscious) back to the conscious mind.
In fact, hypnosis is one of the most powerful tools we have available for change. It is safe, effective and powerful. Studies have proven that the subconscious mind cannot tell the difference between a vividly imagined event and a real one. This makes it possible to imagine and rehearse new behaviors and ways of feeling. Hypnosis is an excellent tool for changing core beliefs. Once beliefs are changed, our reactions, responses, and emotions also change.
