Some people, including some professional therapists, are confused about the difference between an addiction and a dependency.
Like it, Want it, Need it, Crave it, Depend upon it.
The web site nim.nih.gov defines dependence as a need, which may or may not be related to addiction. A person may be dependent upon herbal sleeping pills to achieve sound sleep, yet they are not physically addicted to the herbs.
Psychologist and author Michael Hardiman defines addiction, in his book ‘Overcoming Addiction; A Common Sense Approach’ as: ‘A condition whereby an individual regularly takes a substance, or acts in a particular way, in response to a strong and sometimes overwhelming desire to do so; and that in the absence of so doing, he will experience negative feelings or actual illness. By taking the substance or carrying out the behavior, the addict causes harm to himself or to others.’
If a person abruptly stops using a chemical or drug: the body, and perhaps the unconscious mind may create psychological and physical withdrawals.
Our deep unconscious mind is the ‘foreman’ of our physical body. It can create all sorts of emotional related psychosomatic symptoms, including immunology infections.
‘Welcome’ foreground variants are read aloud once, so you can clearly hear the affirmation before it fades down into the background and becomes subliminal. In that way you consciously, logically and analytically know exactly what your deep unconscious mind is about to hear. This builds confidence in the messages while at the same time ‘unlocking’ access to the deep unconscious mind and facilitating profound change.
What a lot of people, including many professional hypnotherapists, do not understand is that the conscious mind ‘filters’ incoming information (It can accept or reject information) before passing it to the deep unconscious mind for processing.
Subliminal messages and hypnosis are intended to cause the conscious mind to ‘step to one side’ and allow information through the ‘gateway’ without filtering it.
While a person experiencing hypnotic trance may hear the suggestions or instructions from a hypnosis practitioner, they may be consciously unable to resist.*
The sound level of the affirmation messages are low, but not absolutely ‘silent’. Your conscious mind could hear them if there were no masking foreground sounds. Studies prove this is the most effective subliminal level for success because the conscious mind knows they are there, yet they are not irritating and annoying. Because we all have different listening preferences, every ‘Welcome’ Subliminal Affirmation product has a choice of foreground variants for you to choose from. You can download whichever foreground variants match your style and mood.
If you prefer to hear affirmations following an advanced hypnotic induction – we give you that choice too. Enter ‘Prime Hypnosis’.
‘Prime Hypnosis’ MP3’s incorporating these affirmations, following a Classic hypnotic induction with two qualified hypnotherapists at the same time – Peter Zapfella and Coral Conrad. Relaxing music and Theta binaural waves complete the ‘life changing’ experience.
for example: I was assisting the late Dr. Tad James run an advanced hypnotherapy class. While I was sitting at the back of the room he was hypnotising the whole class. Suddenly I felt an uncontrollable urge to stand up and walk up to him. I grabbed my chair in an attempt to resist. I was aware that I was dragging the chair along as my legs walked toward the front of the room. As much as I tried to consciously resist, my legs were adamant that I must go to the front of the room. Our unconscious mind is powerful, more powerful than out conscious mind. Imagine what we could do if we could harness that power and direct it to achieve our conscious goals without struggle.?
