Article: "How it Works: The Conscious vs the Subconscious"

Question: In your "every-day-walking-around" state of mind, which side of your mind is more influential, the conscious part or the subconscious part? The subconscious part is, because it makes up roughly 88% of your mind versus just 12% which is your conscious mind. This is why any new wishes and desires you may express have a very hard time overriding what's already firmly entrenched in the "belief structure" and "behavior pattern" of your subconscious mind. Simply wanting and wishing for a change to occur, or even using repeating "positive affirmations" don't seem to work very well, do they? And there is a very good reason for that: There is something very similar to a computer software "code" in your subconscious mind that is not easily accessed by your conscious mind. This is a protective-mechanism built in, so that any negative or harmful random thoughts coming in to your conscious mind don't take root immediately and become part of your belief or operating system.

The good news is this: There is a hidden "back door" to your subconscious mind. This is where a skilled hypnotherapist can help. He or she knows how to bypass the conscious mind's built in "critical mind filter" to gain direct access to the subconscious mind where all of the programming and behavior patterns reside. And it is through permission and collaboration with you that we as skilled hypnotherapists can effectively and safely access and rewrite the old software code to modify your desired behavior to where it then becomes the NEW software code and belief pattern.

Your mind is a lot like a computer: And when it comes to computers, most people simply do not have the technical expertise to re-write HTML code on a computer in order to change the appearance or functionality of any computer software program.

It would seem that information technology specialists, web-masters and hypnotherapists each have a very unique and separate role to play in either creating new programs or modifying and improving existing ones whether it's for computers or the human mind. Hypnotherapy is a reliable, proven, safe and effective means of bringing about positive change, improvement and behavior modification. It is a natural and holistic approach to self-improvement. The good news is that no one can be hypnotized who does not wish to be. Further, one's free will cannot be overridden or tampered with. It is only through permission and collaboration that a hypnotherapist can gain access to your subconscious mind and only with that same cooperation, can any behavioral issue be modified.
