Why’d I do that? or Why hypnosis?

Monday, November 5th, 2012

Have you ever asked yourself “why’d I do that?” You did it because of the programming of the cognitive maps in your subconscious mind! But why hypnosis?

Who we are. What we’re about… our personality, our habits, our moods, our memory banks, our cognitive maps – are found in our subconscious mind. In order to make any permanent behavioral changes in your life, you’ve got to make changes in how you see yourself and what you see yourself capable of achieving! I’m Bob Crow – a behavioral therapist that is board certified in both clinical and medical hypnotherapy. I practice in Atlanta Georgia.

Many have tried to improve their life using discipline, willpower, resolutions and positive thinking. The reason that one cannot make these changes permanent is because they are attempting do so with the conscious mind – not the subconscious mind.

Some have wanted to:

  • Stop smoking.
  • Lose weight permanently.
  • Maybe not drink as much.
  • Be more confident.
  • Be more self assured.
  • Be a better sales person.
  • Become a great public speaker.
  • Become a better husband, wife or manager.

Others might have desired to

  • Shoot scratch golf.
  • To have a killer serve in tennis.
  • To perfect their music or acting.
  • To be an engaging entertainer.
  • To get rid of anxiety.
  • In other words to excel in life!

In efforts to make behavioral changes in their lives, they’ve read tons and tons of self help and positive thinking books. They’ve attended motivational speeches and bought and listened to motivational cds and cassette tapes. They’ve really tried. But they tried by using their conscious mind – not their subconscious mind!

Efforts to make behavioral change using the conscious mind are destined to fail. Period! Permanent behavioral change – meaning behavioral change that lasts for more than a couple of days… can’t be made in the conscious mind. Habits, either good or bad aren’t located there. They’re located in the subconscious mind! That’s where one has to go in order to effect real, permanent behavioral change.

Permanent behavioral change must occur in the subconscious mind. The subconscious mind is made up of the alpha and theta states. The alpha and theta states or modes are where we find our cognitive maps. A working definition of the cognitive maps comes from the Downs and Stea* text book – Cognitive Mapping and Spatial Behavior: “Cognitive mapping is the process by which and individual acquires, stores and recalls information about their everyday life.” These cognitive maps are where we find our habits and opinions. Opinions of who we are… confident, self assured and strong or timid, scared and fearful? These maps direct our behavior. If we want to change our behavior – we must do it by reprogramming the cognitive maps in our subconscious mind. Reprogramming these cognitive maps are the key to changing our behavior. The only way to access the subconscious mind deliberately is through hypnosis.

Hypnosis is the bridge to the subconscious mind.

One can just keep on trying to make the changes in their life just as they have in the past with positive thinking, the self help books and the listening to motivational speeches. But if it hasn’t worked long term in the past, then it won’t work in the future either. Albert Einstein said that “trying the same solution that hasn’t worked before, on the same problem, hoping that somehow it will work today, is the mark of insanity.” Well I don’t think its insanity, but it is kind of useless – isn’t it?
