Hypnotherapy is a natural yet altered state in which the mind is able to receive helpful suggestions. Typically, the critical factor is a filter between our conscious and subconscious minds. When information comes in, the conscious mind analyzes it and the critical factor checks the subconscious mind for previous memories or beliefs to confirm the information. If it supports a belief already residing in the subconscious, the critical factor allows the information in to further support and reinforce the belief. If it does not support previously held programming, then the critical factor kicks it back to the conscious mind for more processing. During hypnosis, the critical factor is relaxed, giving access to the subconscious brain. Using this state, we can give the subconscious imagery & suggestions to follow or analyze the information in the subconscious to see what blocks & limiting beliefs exist.
