While sitting contemplating life this morning. It stuck me how much we don’t know how often we use the hypnosis process on ourselves.
We use the hypnotic process on ourselves, mostly unwittingly, in moments where we are thinking about a negative event or situation in our lives. This thinking then triggers stories, These stories then trigger images. The images then trigger sensations or emotions. These emotions in turn trigger an expansion of the story, triggering more images and more emotions, sensations. It is a vicious circle that results in a downward spiral. You begin to feel dark and contracted.
How do I know this? I have observed it in myself.
But on the flip side, these same processes work in the opposite direction.
Again using the hypnotic process, having a positive affirmation, tied with a positive image and positive emotion, propels you upward. You begin to feel great and light and expansive. If you repeat this process day after day, you feel better and better.
Again, how do I know this? Because I have also experienced, and am experiencing this state.
What is the difference between the two states? – Literately what you focus on.
The underlying process is the same – the brains natural hypnotic state. The thing is, we are normally unaware that we are using this process.
Once you become aware of the brains hypnosis state, then you can begin to consciously use it to your advantage, rather than using it unconsciously to your disadvantage.
Until next time
