For the last decade psychology and psychiatry have gained in popularity. These mainstream practices have proven to be of great benefit, but can also have some draw backs associated with them such as the need to diagnosis, pathologize or indicate a dysfunction maybe present within the individual (though this may not always be the case). This can cause many to stay away from the benefits that therapy has to offer for fear of being stigmatized. Those who are simply looking to deal with healing, day to day issues or to just improve their present state of being find themselves looking for alternatives.
Hypnotherapy is an alternative behavioral therapy gaining momentum in the mainstream. Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis to facilitate healing, positive behavioral changes, and expand one’s self awareness.
Many people familiar with hypnosis usually associate it with stage performance such as making people act in an atypical manners (examples include acting like babies or animals). Some also may associate hypnosis with aiding individuals with smoking cessation or weight management. Although these are beneficial to the individual they barely display or tap into the true power of hypnotherapy. Hypnotherapy has been proven to help with: Addictive behaviors, Anxiety, Depression, Phobias, Increased self esteem, insomnia, pain management, performance enhancement and more.
Hypnosis works by inducing a meditative or trance state that allows the individual to access the unconscious or subconscious mind. Once in this state, individuals can retrieve, modify, resolve or remove thoughts that will benefit your emotional, physical, mental and spiritual being. Research continues on the benefits of hypnosis, the best way to determine this is to try it for you. Hypnotherapy is safe and confidential.

Hypnosis in Science
As more people continue to benefit from hypnosis it should be no surprise that scientist are looking for physical evidence of its effects on the body. I find this research very exciting as it indicates the transition of hypnotherapy from a pseudoscience into a legitimate form of therapy thereby ushering hypnosis into the mainstream allowing a larger audience to benefit. The article connected to this link (SCIAM) how hypnosis affects the brain using an MRI. Although this research in its early stages it has already proven that there is a physical effect in the brain and not imagined.
“Happiness is not a state to arrive at, but a manner of traveling” -Margoret Lee Runbeck
Neither Success nor Suffering implies worthiness. One's selfworth is validated by one's choice to believe s/he is worthy.
As we mature through our lives we collect many experiences during this process. It’s no wonder that we attach a lot a value to the accolades and battle scares that we gather on this journey. Although past ornament should be remembered they should not be used to invalidate or validate your existence… Or the rights you deserve while going through this human experience. You are worthy of everything that the Universe has to offer simply because you exist. We are extensions of the Universe and posses all the qualities of the Universe that we are apart. So next time, you find yourself doubting your presence circumstance remember that your existence alone validates your presence state of being or else this moment would not exist.
