Hypnosis does encourage life transformation through developing productive creativity, optimism and staying power. Remember, expectation is powerful. Your brain works towards what it's been programmed to expect. This principle can be much more powerful than you may currently realize.
People often talk of consciously struggling to remember someone's name – so creating expectation for their brain to manifest. Hours later they may have been mowing the lawn or taking a bath and suddenly the name pops up, even though they were no longer thinking about it consciously. Expectation is powerful stuff and works below the level of your conscious mind.
If you truly believe that things are going to work out well, then you'll feel confident and have more staying power to keep trying longer. You'll also have more energy and enthusiasm, which is more likely to attract others to your project, and your creative mind will be working for you, so you'll produce unexpected solutions and ideas.
Your subconscious mind will be constantly working towards manifesting the expectation and your brain is a powerful engine and what it is geared towards is absolutely crucial. Research shows that optimists have better immune systems, live longer, become less stressed by challenges and persevere longer, meaning they're more likely to ultimately succeed.
Hypnosis is a natural learning state and happens spontaneously and continually, and most of the time we're unaware of it happening. This means we can easily get hypnotized by the attitudes of people around us, and by TV and advertising.
Fortunately, optimism is a strategy that anyone can learn and the quickest way to do this is also through hypnosis. Optimists see positive things as part of who they are – permanent and relating to life as a whole. It's as simple as this. The more times you enter positive and productive hypnotic trance states relating to your life, the more positive – and likely to be successful – you become.
Because negative emotional states also work on people in hypnotic ways, we can use hypnosis as the optimum tool to overcoming depression, anger and other conditions. Similarly, because determination, inspiration and the ability to enter performance flow states are also hypnotic, we can again use hypnosis to create and enhance positive states until they become a lasting way of relating to your life.
Of course, anything worthwhile takes perseverance. But individuals who can keep creative, upbeat and determined and see through the limitations of negativity are the ones who'll thrive.
