Choice in Therapeutic Hypnosis On behalf of tvlesson.com, my name is Robert J. Escandon. I’m a clinical hypnotherapist with TheBanyanHolistic.com. Let’s talk about the concept of choice in therapeutic hypnotherapy. What I mean by choice is basically we all have choices that we make on a daily basis. Some choices are bigger than others; some of them are “What kind of ice cream are we going to have today?” Or “What kind of car am I going to buy tomorrow?” Or perhaps, maybe “When am I going to retire?” And all choices are very important to the individual. Now, the idea that we do not have a choice in some matters is more of a mystery than anything else. It’s an illusion. Through the process of therapeutic hypnotherapy, we realize that we do have choices in all matters. They can be choices that we’ve made in the past; personal choices, social choices and everything is based on a choice. You might have many professionals and authorities that might suggest the certain path to take but at the end of it, it comes down to an individual choice, what I perceive to be correct and that is how we go about it. In therapeutic hypnosis, we begin to look at choice in everything. It does not matter how detrimental things are, everything comes down to a matter of “I decide that this is going to be the true.” Therefore, it is true. And we have choices in all matters. It can be anything from deciding if I’m going to be sick tomorrow because some individual was coughing on me or whether I announce I’m going to go the Marlins game at the end of the week. Everything is a matter of choice and when we’re creating our realities inwardly through therapeutic hypnosis, it’s important to identify that we do have a choice in all matters and to constantly remind and reinforce that because there are many factors in our world that perhaps try to take choices away from us but choices in fact, something that we all are responsible for. On behalf of tvlesson.com, this has been Robert J. Escandon. Thank you for watching.
