If you are a student of conversational hypnosis, you will be exposed to the idea of the conscious and the unconscious mind.
The unconscious mind is also commonly known as the sub-conscious mind.
What are these states of mind?
The concept of human being having these states of mind cannot be proven with scientific data. Nonetheless, it has already been accepted in the Western world.
Here’s an interesting fact. Our conscious mind thinks quantitatively using words, numbers and logical sequential thinking. It kind of reminds me the thinking process of a scientist or an engineer.
Our unconscious mind on the other hand uses images, memories, feeling, and non-sequential thinking. An artist fit this spectrum perfectly.
So, we have 2 states of mind but we can’t really prove it. One is the super alert state, while on the opposite side the dream state. And in the middle of these 2 states is our everyday alert state of mind, in which we are relatively focused on what we are doing.
Is one state better than the other?
Here’s my logical thinking…if being aware and using our conscious mind is not getting the results that we wanted, would it be better if we were to use our sub-conscious mind instead?
There’s a very interesting fact that I found. The world hypnosis actually comes from Hypnos. Hypnos Is the Greek good of sleep. It would be fair to assume the art of hypnosis is to bring a person into a sleep state.
As I’m studying Igor Ledochowski’s conversational hypnosis program, it is very clear that we can input suggestive messages into a person mind in a state of trance. A person in trance is neither sleeping nor awake, it is sort of sleepwalking.
The reason I’m learning covert hypnosis is to achieve certain results in my work and business through verbal communication. Many leaders of the world have been using hypnosis to achieve their agenda. Not using hypnosis is like leaving behind a very powerful tool in your arsenal.
