How does the hypnosis work?
Hypnosis works by temporarily accessing a deeper mental state and giving the mind a new suggestion. When given a new suggestion during hypnosis that is within the bounds of a person’s belief system and moral orientation, the subconscious mind can accept the suggestion as new reality. As the mind accepts and incorporates the new suggestions, internal emotional conflicts, cognitive dissonance, spiritual blockages, and self-defeating thought patterns can be overcome.
