									                          THE MIND AND CRITICAL FACTOR


What is hypnosis? Hypnosis is actually a state of consciousness whereby a person
goes in and out of every day. Typically, you could compare hypnosis as daydreaming
where the mind wanders but you are still fully aware of your surroundings. While in the
state of hypnosis, the subconscious mind is given suggestions by a professional
hypnotist or hypnotherapist. Once these suggestions are accepted, the person is
capable of making change. As an example, if the hypnotist or hypnotherapist were to
guide you with suggestions for losing weight, you would hear and accept these
suggestions and begin to make changes in how you ate and lived, thus weight loss.

This initial state of hypnosis is known as Alpha, a time when the brain wave vibration
rate begins to slow way down. With that, you are able to “surrender” your subconscious
mind although the conscious mind is still fully aware but in a relaxed state. As you can
imagine, hypnosis is an empowering tool that can make a huge difference in improving
life. The interesting thing about hypnosis is that it simply uses the natural process we
all have for negative change to be transformed into positive behaviors and patterns.

To understand hypnosis further, you need to understand the five components needed
before you could be hypnotized. These include concentration, relaxation, motivation,
suggestion, and imagination. The application of hypnosis is based completely on the
conscious and subconscious mind’s connection. Since your subconscious mind is not
capable of reasoning, it then accepts and acts on suggestion given via the conscious
mind. Therefore, these five components must be in place for the conscious mind to be
used as a tool for the suggestion given by the hypnotist or hypnotherapist to reach the
subconscious mind.

Let us talk about this a little more…you see, the conscious mind accounts for 10% of
the mind. This part of your brain is what makes you aware of current events and
surroundings. When you decide to watch a specific television show or eat a sandwich,
you are making a conscious decision with the conscious mind. This part of the brain is
analytical and logical, which is why we spend the majority of our time in the conscious
mind. Without the conscious mind, four primary functions could not happen. These
include problem solving through evaluation, automatic decision-making, will power, and
working memory.

The remaining part of the mind is the subconscious, which makes up the other 90%.
Keep in mind that information stored in the subconscious mind often influences the
conscious mind. Although the subconscious mind serves many important purposes, the
most important is its ability to automatically, control the body in the sense of your heart
beating, breathing, blinking, and even the way in which the bones, muscles, organs, and
tissues all interact with the cellular level.

The exciting aspect of the subconscious mind is that this is where we get our creativity
and intuitive nature. The subconscious mind is also responsible for emotion and
irrational behavior. The downside of the subconscious mind is that it allows us to
wander into unreasonable and illogical territory, leading into negative behavior.
However, the subconscious is also, where our belief system, core values, and memory
reside. Unlike the conscious mind, the subconscious mind, much like a computer, can
be reprogrammed.

Another part of the conscious mind is known as the Critical Factor. This part of the
mind is similar to a gate between the conscious and subconscious mind, having the
power to reject or accept suggestions. The Critical Factor’s job is to protect and serve.
What happens in this case is that the Critical Factor looks at change as something
threatening and because it is trying to offer you protection, rejection occurs.

Therefore, any suggestions made that do not coordinate with what is programmed are
rejected. For hypnosis to work in helping you make change is to bypass the Critical
Factor through emotions, habits, and even memories. By working with a professional
hypnotist or hypnotherapist, the Critical Factor can be bypassed. The result is that
whatever change you are trying to achieve can be yours.
