How Hypnosis Impacts the Amygdala

The beauty of Hypnosis is that it bypasses our conscious mind.  Why is this important?  It is of importance because in our conscious state we have the ability to judge, rationalize, make excuses and listen to the incessant negative self-talk that is going on in our minds all day long.  A skilled Hypnotherapist will appeal to your subconcious mind which is acutely alert while in a relaxed state of hypnosis and eager to accept positive suggestions to facilitate and promote transformation. 

Here is an excerpt from the article from Natural News that Steve E. Jones, M.Ed. wrote: "Warren explains how hypnosis affects the amygdala. When someone is in a hypnotic trance the amygdala normally shuts itself off. Both the body and the mind are in a deep state of relaxation. All emotions and fears are shut down. The patient is reminded that he or she is in control and not the hypnotherapist. In a state of hypnosis, a person's unconscious mind will know where to channel the healing power of hypnotic suggestions. This new research gives more insight into the mind-body connection between the brain and hypnosis."
