What is hypnosis?

People have been pondering and arguing over hypnosis for more than 200 years, but science has yet to fully explain how it actually happens. But we do understand the general characteristics of hypnosis, and have a model of how it works.

It is a trance state characterized by extreme suggestibility, relaxation and heightened imagination. It’s not really like sleep, because you are alert the whole time. It is most often compared to daydreaming, or the feeling of “losing yourself” in a book or movie. You are fully conscious, but you tune out most of the stimuli around you. You focus intently on the subject at hand, to the near exclusion of any other thought.Read More »

How does hypnosis work?

One of the first questions asked by our clients is almost always, “How does Hypnosis work?”

Hypnosis works by updating the unconscious mind with new and more helpful information, like reprogramming a computer. It can be used to change associations, so that cigarettes, for instance, are no longer seen as “relaxing”, and are more realistically regarded as “stimulant toxic killers”. It can also be used to mentally rehearse better ways of going about things, such as being able to deal with stressful situations, motivating positive changes, or even releasing fears and trauma.
It really is one of the simplest solutions to many problems.  Its simpler than most people know.Read More »

What does hypnosis feel like?

When discussing the experience of hypnosis, it is important to understand that there is no single hypnotized feeling. There is no specific sensation, yet there are feelings that can be recognized as belonging to the state of hypnosis.

Hypnosis is almost like taking a nap (but not sleep mode), where your body and mind can finally let go fully and release the stress, tension, or whatever else you store there and wish to release.  The difference is you’re guided to experience change during the hypnotic trance.  When you’re hypnotized your subconscious mind is a state of heightened awareness. You are fully aware of your surroundings, yet you are so deeply relaxed that you feel as if you could stay in that mode all the time. But make no mistake: no one can be hypnotized against their will and it only works if you agree to let it happen.Read More »

Are Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy Effective?

“Does hypnotherapy work? Science says “Yes!”

In December of 2014, the Washington Times posted an article by Virginia based writer and a member of the American Psychological Association and the Association for Psychological Science Paul Mountjoy called “Does hypnotherapy work? Science says “Yes!” In the article he points out how the American Medical Association (AMA) reported hypnotherapy has a recognized place in the medical armamentarium and is a useful technique in the treatment of certain illnesses.

Therapeutic hypnosis is safe and effective, and is a scientifically proven therapy for improving your health and well-being.

Where did Sui Awakening come from?

Over the last several years many shifts began occurring for the universe and it was also the time that Renata and Eric met and the seeds for Sui Awakening began. During their time in graduate school, they began a series of life changing events both individually and together that has manifested and evolved into Sui Awakening.

“Sui” is the word for “beautiful” from the Shipibo tribal dialect, coming from an ageless tribe deep in the Peruvian Amazon. It was also beheld to both Eric and Renata from one of the Master Shamans of the tribe during a visit, entrusted to them as a form of mission and duty – to carry beautiful light of the universe forward into working with others.
