Hypnosis has been used throughout history and it's use is recorded in ancient Chinese, Hindu and Egyptian texts. Great creative minds, including Sigmund Freud, Milton Erikson, Emile Coue, and Dave Ellman used hypnosis and touted its amazing ability to bring about profound healing and positive change. Doctors relied on the power of hypnosis before the development of anesthesia. Hypnosis was and still is used at times by dentists and doctors all over the world.
*Listening to your Hypnosis is very refreshing - 20 minutes of listening is equal to the rest from a 2 hour nap.
*Find a quiet relaxing place to listen to your hypnosis/guided meditation - a place where you will not be disturbed for 30 or so minutes.
*You can lie down or sit in a comfortable chair. Use whatever position is more comfortable for you. You can change positions if needed while listening to allow more comfort.
*Use earphones if you have them-it helps to block out other sounds to create deeper relaxation.
*Let the sounds flow to and through you- your mind may wander at times and that's normal and OK.
*For optimum results-listen at least 1 time daily for 30 days.
*Please DO NOT DRIVE while listening to your hypnosis or meditation programs.
Meditation involves focusing one’s thoughts, engaging in inner contemplation or reflection. Meditation techniques vary, but what most of them have in common is the act of stilling the mind to promote healing and positivity. There are different kinds of meditation. One is based on body control in order to unite body and mind like doing Chi Kung or Yoga. Another is based on control of the mind and requires concentration, contemplation and visualization. Concentration is accomplished by focusing on an object. Contemplation is achieved through continuous repetition of a word or a syllable, as in (mantra like "OM"). A third approach is based on letting go of the body, using techniques to achieve relaxation of muscle tensions. The fourth focuses on letting go of the mind. The mind remains open to whatever enters it thus obtaining insight.
There is a fine line between meditation and hypnosis. Meditation and self-hypnosis can be induced in similar ways. Both techniques may begin by the person being asked to stare at a certain point, breathe in a prescribed way or listen to chants, music or rhythms.

Our minds have this great "gatekeeper" called the Critical Factor. The "Critical Factor" is a part of the conscious mind. It's kind of like a guard at the gate between the conscious mind and the subconscious mind. It has the power to accept or reject suggestions from entering the subconscious mind. It has very good intentions. Its job is to protect us. It will not allow you to do anything that you do not already want to do. During your session you can open your eyes at anytime, you're an active part of the process and in complete control at all times. Nearly everyone is a good candidate for hypnosis-the important factor is that you are ready to make a change. Hypnosis is a safe and effective way to make powerful and positive change. Mita is an ethical, qualified, experienced, certified hypnotist providing a safe and relaxing experience.
