Personality development is partially about learning how to react in certain situations. You may have some bad programming sitting in your subconscious that stems from a traumatic experience or have been taught the wrong way to do something since childhood. The power of personality development stems from being able to change this programming. You can alter the way you react to certain situations through therapy. However, therapy is not the only way to alter this programming. Gaining access to your subconscious mind can also be done using hypnosis. I am not referring to stage hypnosis where someone makes you act like a chicken for the amusement of others either.
Hypnosis works by relaxing you to the point of sleep. This is the time that our minds are most vulnerable because it opens up a direct link to our subconscious. Personality development that stems from hypnosis has been proven to work. People use hypnotherapy in order to stop smoking or rid themselves of another bad habit. Generally, this altering of the subconscious programming has a wide reaching effect on how the conscious mind works because the conscious mind takes its cue from subconscious thought processes. The subconscious is responsible for reactionary behavior – what can be termed as instinctual behavior.
You do not need to see a hypnotherapist in order to gain access to your subconscious. As you are waking up in the morning and falling asleep at night you can give yourself a direct link to your own subconscious. This can be used as a form of self imposed personality development. It can be quite expensive for therapy or hypnosis and this is one way you can exact change without spending a cent. You just need to remain aware of what you want the subconscious to know while you are drifting off to sleep.
