Dr. David Snyder, NLP Master Practitioner, Hypnotherapy Master and much more, states that when we are born, we are just one big blank hard drive.
We have no sense of self and no sense of identity and virtually a clean slate.
David states that our subconscious mind is like a video camera that constantly records all 5 senses 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.
He has found that in 9 out of 10 hypnosis sessions that when people come in for help with an issue (cancer, Parkinson’s, or other health related issues) that a trauma of some kind happened from the age of birth to 5 years old and that those recorded events in our early life are the ones that have the biggest impact on us.
In addition, when we are born, we have no idea of good or bad, right or wrong, good or evil and we only know at that age what feels good, what feels bad, what feels safe, what feels threatening, and what feels familiar or unfamiliar.
Even though every memory and every thought are recorded in your unconscious mind, most people only remember but a couple of images or experiences from around the age of 5 years old since much of the information gets distorted, deleted, generalized and forgotten.
He also explains that when we are born, our sense of self is “Mommy” and we identify with “Mommy”. From the age of 0 to 5 we have no critical factor (filter/gate keeper for information that we allow into our subconscious minds) so the first experiences are not judged or analyzed, they are only recorded.
Those experiences are stored in our nervous system (also known as our subconscious mind) and that’s what he says “drives our bus” and is what we base our unconscious decisions and behaviors on going forward, even though we don’t think about it consciously.
If we think about things in our past, its only a picture in our mind. We are not the camera, the VCR or the photo, and we are not the thing that happened.
As we start to create more and more experiences, they start to get grouped. The unconscious mind starts to sort them by “sameness or similarity”.
These experiences become the measure for which all other experiences are measured and becomes little hooks that we hang other experiences on.
When needed, the unconscious mind becomes a playback unit and it plays back feelings, emotions, smells, and all the other senses related to a memory of any of the experiences.
In this video, David shows ways to do just that. He has through his years of hypnotherapy and NLP pinpointed the most exact ways to make permanent change.
You may ask: ‘Does hypnotherapy work?’, and the answer is, absolutely it does and works very well when in the hands of a master like David.
