Our mind generates thoughts based on our environment, memories, intra-uterine conditions, past lives and external energies. These thoughts when associated with emotions, get converted into energy. If the emotions are positive like love, happiness, etc then this energy has a positive effect on our body, but if these emotions are negative like fear, anger, anxiety, jealousy, guilt etc then this energy has an adverse effect on our body. This energy is felt in the physical body in the form of increased heart beat & pulse rate, sweating, nausea etc. This then gets stored into our sub-conscious mind in the form of a memory which is associated with a negative emotion. The sub-conscious mind is 6000 times more powerful then our conscious mind, and therefore it starts to menifest our future behaviour based on these stored memories. What is funny is that our conscious mind does not even have a clue about this, so we are unable to control our behaviour in a conscious manner.
In Hypnotherapy we deal with the sub-conscious mind and neutralise these negative emotions associated with our memories. Thus empowering oueselves to control our behaviour and thus our future.
