Why Hypnosis Works

The most powerful aspect of the human mind is the subconscious mind. It is the part of us that monitors and controls everything about us.

It is also the part of us that knows everything about us. Every thing that has ever happened to us, everything that we have ever seen, heard, smelt, tasted or touched, every thought that we have ever had, is stored in the permanent memory of the subconscious mind. Our conscious mind has access to a mere fraction of our memories, but it's all there. Deep down in our subconscious mind.

The conscious mind can only hold approximately 5 to 7 thoughts at the one time. Whereas the unconscious mind monitors the seven trillion (7,000,000,000) nerve endings the human body has. It controls breathing when were not thinking about it. It controls our heart rate, blood pressure, the immune system, and everything else we are not aware of.

There are muscles surrounding our arteries. Just try to flex one of these arterial muscles. We can't, at least not with our conscious mind, but our subconscious mind is doing it all of the time. I don't have any idea what my spleen does, let alone know how to operate it. I don't need to either, that's one of the many jobs of our subconscious mind.

Sigmund Freud described the mind as being like an iceberg. There's a small part of it above the surface and the majority is hidden beneath the water. Our conscious mind is the part we can see and the subconscious mind is the bulk of the mind, hidden beneath the surface.

The subconscious mind is also the seat of all our emotions and habits. Almost everything we do is based in our habits.

"Watch your thoughts, for they become words.
Watch your words, for they become actions.
Watch your actions, for they become habits.
Watch your habits, for they become character.
Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny."


Because hypnosis allows for direct communication with the subconscious mind, we can change our habits through hypnotherapy. By changing our habits, we change how we respond to the every day things we encounter all the time.

We can also go the the original cause of our problems, stored deep in our memories which the conscious mind usually can't access. By accessing these deep seated memories, we can change how we respond to them, effectively eliminating the cause of our problems.

Sigmund Freud use of Hypnosis


History reveals that Sigmund Freud was researching hypnosis before he started to discover the theory of modern psychiatry.

Unfortunately he was not a very good hypnotist, often having difficulty hypnotising his patients. As a result he favoured free association techniques and began to develop his system of psychoanalysis.
