Radiant Body Summit Lisa Garr the Aware Show

Rick Collingwood

"Spend 10 minutes a day visualizing the change you want,"says Rick Collingwood, my guest today on the Radiant Body Summit, "and strangely enough, it will usually happen."

Most of my listeners know about the life-changing power of visualization, and there is a growing body of scientific evidence supporting visualization's effects. Rick is a practitioner of a therapeutic method that helps the subconscious mind and the conscious mind communicate more clearly, lending power to your visualization: hypnotherapy. He has worked with thousands of people all around the globe, helping them lose weight, quit smoking, overcome insomnia, and more.

Visualization and the Subconscious Mind

"If you close your eyes, after 3-5 minutes the subconscious mind doesn't know whether what it's seeing in a visualization is real or not," said Rick. His hour-long hypnotherapy recordings put his listeners into a hypnotic trance, which alters the vibrational state of the pineal gland, allowing information to travel more easily between your waking, conscious mind and your deeper, subconscious mind.

His Neurosonic Frequency plays lightly in the background, and it sounds a lot like a heartbeat. It is designed to return your brain to the theta state, the same brainwave frequency you are on when you are sleeping, as opposed to the waking alpha state you are in right now.

While in theta state, the brain listens readily to suggestions. Rick has put together 14 of his bestselling hypnosis recordings into a Hypnotherapy Library, and each one focuses on a different area to improve: losing weight, decreasing pain, reducing stress, improving your memory, and more. "Anything that the human body or mind is capable of, hypnosis can enhance," he says.

Healing Benefits of Hypnotherapy and Trance

Just entering a hypnotic trance by itself is therapeutic. An hour of hypnosis is like 20 hours of sleep for the immune system. If you are athletic, then you know that the biggest shortcut to improving your physique is increasing your sleep, so your body has time to repair and grow muscles. Rick recommends listening to his recordings just before you go to sleep, so you don't have to spend an hour out of your day listening to a hypnosis session - you can go into a hypnotic state, allow your subconscious mind to take on the suggestions, and then move right into a deep and restful sleep.
