The conscious mind, accounts for 5-10% of our mind, it is working right now as you are reading this. The conscious mind is logical and analytical and it is where we spend most of our time. Conscious decisions are influenced by the data stored in our subconscious mind.
The subconscious mind, which accounts for 90-95% of our mind, can be compared to a computer, in that it stores the data for all the experiences we have ever had.
One of the most important functions of the subconscious mind is that it automatically controls our bodily functions; breathing, heart beating, the immune system, organs, muscles, and tissues from the cellular level to its inter-relatedness as a whole body functioning. It contains your values, your core beliefs, your self esteem, every thought you have ever had, every word that has ever been said to you, and every experience.
Just like a computer operates only on it’s programming, so does your subconscious mind. Also like a computer, your subconscious mind can be reprogrammed.
During Hypnotherapy, you have access to your subconscious mind where this re-programming can take place. In a THETA brain frequency state, a Hypnotherapist is able to facilitate a process to remove negative stored emotions.
Allowing for the removal of any blockages, the emotional connection to traumatic events, and reversal of physical and emotional damage. Replacing the subconscious mind with positive, clear emotions, thoughts and beliefs.
