“For me, meditation plays a large part of hypnosis. The difference between meditation and hypnosis is that we both use a meditation state, the theta wave, but I’m giving you guided suggestion. Whereas with meditation, you just relax. With hypnosis, you relax so you feel like you’ve had guided sleep, rest and restoration in your life, but you’ll also have a positive suggestion that you can act upon.
I can give you an example. People come to me when they’re feeling stressed or anxious about a specific subject or fear. I help them with that anxiety; I help them overcome it through self-talk. I plant these positive affirmations into their subconscious mind. It could be something simple so every time they see a red traffic light they think, “I’m feeling better about myself.” Or every morning when they drink that cup of coffee they think, “I feel wonderful today.” I can make that affirmation stick to where it’s automatic. Meditation is used only as a means for relaxation.”
