“Hypnosis is prescribing common sense under ideal conditions.”
I love that quote. Everyone I work with wants to do common sense things that should be easy to do. They want to stop smoking, eat right, control anxiety, focus on important areas of life and avoid distractions. All of these things are just common sense.
- It’s common sense to not smoke tobacco.
- It’s common sense to eat healthy foods.
- It’s common sense to get physical activity.
- It’s common sense that speaking to groups of people should be easy.
- These things should be easy … but they are not.
If gaining this level of control were easy people wouldn’t need a hypnotist. A lot of people will explain that they “can’t get our of my own way.” Hypnosis is designed to create the “ideal conditions” where doing the commons sense things are simple, easy and automatic.
People wonder what the experience of hypnosis is like to make such a dramatic, and common sense, change. I remind people that it’s all about directing the attention to the right things. The hypnotist is the tour guide, your job is to do the “heavy lifting” by simply following the hypnotists instruction. Most of the time the feeling you get in hypnosis is so positive and pleasant it’s amazing. A lot of people feel so dramatically better they’re smiling and laughing at the end of the session. Yes, it’s an “ideal condition” for being able to do what is just common sense.
