The Critical Factor
Hypnotherapy works wonders to resolve many issues related to our day to day life. Improved memory skills, increased self-confidence, healthy weight loss, easy childbirth, success in goal accomplishment, increased mutual love and respect in relationships, smoking cessation, pain management, elimination of fears and phobias has all been made possible using Hypnotherapy.
During hypnosis, the critical Factor relaxes. With the relaxation of critical Factor, a communication between the conscious and subconscious mind takes place. This communication allows for positive and beneficial suggestions, ideas and information to be accepted and acted upon by the subconscious mind. And this is what we aim to do as Hypnotherapists.
Now the question is “what is the Critical Factor and what is the role of critical factor in resolving our issues?”
Critical factor, develops by the age of ten, works like a gatekeeper or checkpoint to the subconscious. Located between the conscious and the subconscious mind, it compares any new incoming ideas or information with the already existing ideas of the subconscious mind and resolves if the current information matches with the recognized patterns of the subconscious mind, or if it should be sent back to the conscious mind for further inspection.
Once this state has been achieved and the communication between conscious and subconscious mind has been established, positive ideas and suggestions are then given to the people or, as I like to say, co-therapist. Because of this direct communication between conscious and subconscious, the co-therapist easily accepts and starts acting upon those suggestions and positive transformations take place.
This is Hypnotherapy, or “healing through hypnosis”.
