Who is Rosemary Powell?
April 1, 2023
At the age of 41, seeking counseling for my childhood issues and dissolving marriage, I found a hypnotherapist. She helped me and gave me tools to live by. For almost 30 years as a registered nurse I have been offering these hypnosis tools to help others relieve life's stresses and achieve restful sleep.
Two years ago, I resigned from nursing after being prompted to become a hypnotherapist. I advanced my HT (hypnotherapy) training and also became a facilitator in NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming). I now help others as a CM CHT FNLP.
What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a relaxed state of mind where the Critical Factor opens and the subconscious mind is susceptible to positive programming. Whatever is planted in your subconscious mind with repetition and emotion will one day become a reality. Hypnosis, the trance, is used in both hypnotherapy and Neuro-Linguistic Programming.
Our conscious mind
The conscious mind is only 10% of the mind, awake. The conscious mind:
• Controls reasoning, voluntary movements and speaking.
• Receives information from your six senses.
• Relates to planning, setting goals, willpower and critical thinking.
Gatekeeper: the critical factor
The critical factor serves as the gatekeeper to the subconscious mind. It decides whether to accept or reject new incoming information, ideas and beliefs. This gatekeeper is open until age 11. The subconscious mind is programmed throughout our childhood by parents, teachers, authority figures, emotions and experiences.
Our subconscious mind:
This is our hard drive and permanent memory. Our subconscious mind:
• Contains our beliefs, emotions, habit patterns, relationship patterns and values.
• Is much more powerful than the conscious mind and overrides it easily.
• Cannot tell the difference between what is real or imagined; it accepts it.
• Wants to move away from pain and toward feeling good using its picture consciousness, imagination and creative intelligence.
Your subconscious mind's programming determines how you behave.
The superconscious represents your higher mind, soul or spirit. It is your problem-solving intelligence, with access to your wise mind or higher self. It is here that love, forgiveness, healing, peace and intuition exist. Is there a field of infinite intelligence? If so, it is here.
