Frequently Asked Questions
What is Hypnosis?
Good question! Don't worry, you won't be quacking like a duck when all is said and done. Hypnosis is a completely natural state you enter into every day. Ever gotten in the car and before you know it, you're at your destination without ever really engaging in the constant nuances of operating a multi-ton vehicle? If so, you have been hypnotized. Your conscious mind might have been ruminating on what to eat for dinner, while your subconscious mind operated the heavy machinery. It's ok, you made it home alive to prep that healthy meal ahead of you. But that's the best way to define hypnosis. Hypnosis is a process that tries to talk to that subconscious piece of your mind that engages in regular activity every day with or without us knowing it. It is a process of relaxing your mind in order to speak to motivations, habits, and self-beliefs, and re-train those patterns to help develop new motivations, habits, and self-beliefs in a healthy and positive way to live your best life. Don't be afraid to fall asleep. Because we're talking to that subconscious piece that is constantly operating even when you're not paying attention, this positive feedback loop (if practiced) will still be working, even if you're snoozing. Give it a shot! I promise, here at Forte Hypnosis, we'll only try to help you be the best version of you possible, not a stage act clucking in your next business meeting. Unless, of course, that's what you want to do, then call us and we'll write a script just for you...just don't be surprised if it doesn't end up on our website.
I bought a hypnosis track through my iPhone, iPad, iProduct, and now I can't find it. Help!
We get you. We struggled with this too at first, but I promise the solution is actually very simple.

2. Go to Apple's Support Page for the Files App if you have any questions on how to save directly to your Device or to the Cloud. Copy and paste this url into your web browser to reach Apple's support page
3. Remember to go back to your new hypnosis download in your Files App every day to retrain your brain to work for you!
