How to Develop Your Intuition for Hypnosis?

There are many categories of intuition. Milton Erickson and the other great Master Hypnotists knew all the  best intuition books but also recognized that mediation can connect you to your subconscious mind. Intuition spiritual guides and all other manner of esoteric and metaphysic inquiry can make a person happier and more content. A rigorous intuition, specifically mental intuition may seem almost intellectual in nature but it is addressed in motivational books as diverse as Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill, the Chicken Soup for the Soul Books and the books of Anthony Robbins – Tony Robbins -  the movie the Secret, and even in schools that teach Integrative Nutrition.  

What does research say about intuition?  Mental Intuition may simply be an internal conversation you are having with yourself about a solution to a problem, or a brainstorm in the shower, a hunch, or a nagging thought that won't go away in the mind of a person who is not normally obsessive about thoughts. These thoughts are about common sense and recognizing what seems obvious, for intuition is not logical though it might initially be experienced it as if it was. It is actually a more goal-oriented sensibility than the other two forms of intuition.

According to my friend Nancy Rosanoff, a respected expert and writer on intuition, "Most often, people have a combination of the above three, though one form may be dominant. Rarely is someone totally one type. We categorize them only to indicate that there is more than one way to perceive intuitive information."

As you learn to use your intuition, it is essential that you remove what is often called "Negative Self-Talk" from your internal conversation. "Limiting words", including would, could, should, but, what if, try, and maybe, though not bad words, feed limited thinking and are of little value in helping the mind free itself from reactive thinking patterns. Focus on using "inquiry-oriented words" such as who, what, why, where, when, and how. In your private and public conversations, ask questions to bring you both the answers you need and the freedom that the right answers create. You can also use proactive or neutral language in your internal conversations such as "I am unlimited possibility; I can see the joy in living" or "contentment is my natural state." All of these help create a sense of vision. Without a mental vision or a stated mission, life seems aimless. Think of something that excites you in a positive way. Think about art, sailing, philosophy, learning about history, or making a difference in the world. Now focus on things you can do to reach or fulfill that vision. A person with clear vision may be rich or poor but is deeply happy with his or her chosen life while the person who has wealth or great material possessions but does not have a clear sense of vision or mission, can be likened to a dog chasing its tail. Without a vision or a mission, life seems aimless. Mental willpower and mental discipline without vision or a sense of purpose is struggle.
