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".
