Relaxation is the gateway to the Subconscious Mind. By becoming still,

relaxing the mind, body, and emotions, the subconscious mind is

accessed and the Conscious Mind, though still present, takes a bit

of a backseat. It is in this extremely relaxed state that our minds

are ripe for suggestion and old belief systems can be changed,

new belief systems created. 

Suggestion is not designed by the practitioner

but simply pointed out between the time passed since the incident and the

initial "trauma". A more profound state of awareness through

focus and relaxation can induce the theta state of mind, where the 

subconscious can successfully be "reprogrammed".
