The value of experiencing trance and learning hypnosis lies in attaining power to heal our own bodies and guide clients in healing theirs... power to learn... and power to create changes in our lives.
If you can produce hypnotic phenomena in yourself, such as arm catalepsy (rigidity), major muscle group relaxation, full body catalepsy, or somnambulistic behavior, then you have the power to produce healing changes in yourself. If you can hallucinate a tennis ball, you can hallucinate a little PAC-man travelling through your body gobbling up cells or substances that have been causing dis-ease. If you had severe muscle pain in your back, think what a relief it would be just to sit down and go into trance, or work with a Hypnotherapist, and say, "Unconscious Mind, go ahead and heal the muscles in my back." If you have clear communication with your Unconscious Mind, you can do that. There is now a groundswell of support for the healing powers of hyp-nosis from the traditional allopathic medical community.
In addition to healing, the Unconscious Mind opens new doors to learning. If there is something you want to learn easily, you can say to your Unconscious Mind, "Let's learn this," and it will support you. If you are concerned about a presentation you are making, you can say to your Unconscious Mind, "Let's organize all of this to flow easily and effortlessly." Your Unconscious Mind will do all of this for you.
In trance, we can also tap into real power to create changes in our lives, healing what needs to be healed, preserving learnings from the past, and making new neurological connections to manifest our dreams. For these purposes, I teach Time-Line Therapy® to thousands of people each year. If we have rapport with our Unconscious Minds, we will have all the resources we need to create the future of our dreams.
Milton Erickson once said, "Patients are patients because they are out of rapport with their own Unconscious." Hypnotherapy patients are people who have had too much programming—so much outside programming that they have lost touch with their inner selves. People who are in rapport with their Unconscious Minds are also in control of their destiny.
We are exploring hypnosis for two purposes. On the one hand, we are learning how to be superb Hypnotherapists, able to lead others to the rich benefits of trance. On the other hand, we are learning how to be very good hypnotic subjects, so that we can access those benefits by entering trance ourselves.
