I have realized that out of hypnosis come a conception of humans as modifiable, an appreciation of the malleability of space and time, and specific ideas about how to direct, like a conductor, another person to become more independent, free and autonomous. Just as a hypnotist can think of transforming a severe symptom into a milder one, or one of shorter duration, they can think of shifting an interpersonal problem into a true advantage. More easily than most therapists, a Certified hypnotherapist is a trained professional whom can grasp the idea that subjective emotions, feelings and perceptions change with a change in relationship. The strategic way of thinking is the heart and core to these hypnotic approaches, when used properly, savvily and mostly wisely.
"After the odyssey through the Magic Theater, the hero in Herman Hesse's Steppenwolf laughs out loud as he realizes that reality is nothing but the free choice of one of many doors that are open at all times."
