The Plastic Brain & Self-Hypnosis

One of the most important discoveries of the brain in the last 50 years, is its plasticity. The ability of the brain to change and adapt, to grow new neural paths and connections and drop or atrophy unwanted connections.


This discovery has helped break the old beliefs that the brain, once past childhood, is fixed and not capable of change.

Hypnosis has used this ability of the brain to change, for many years. The research into brain plasticity is allowing us to understand, in part, why hypnosis is effective in creating change in ones life.

By using self-hypnotic suggestions and tools, one is able to begin and then sustain the desired change in their lives. To break free of the shackles of past limiting beliefs and to begin to achieve their true potential. To enhance their lives and to take control.

Using the power of hypnosis to directly influence the sub-conscious mind, allows for faster change. This change is bought about by creating new, supportive neural connections in the brain. Connections that are strengthen the more one uses a self-hypnotic program of the new belief or behaviour that they are seeking to embed in their lives.

About selfhypnosisresource

Hi there. I have an interest in personal change - for the better and have done so for many years. I am working on meditation - that's a work in progress. I have been on a number of Vipassana retreats. I found these of great value. I also have an interest in self-hypnosis and how it can help with self improvement. My blog is on topics associated with personal change, hypnosis, Vipassana and Huna
