I thought I’d share an observation that a web colleague of mine shared recently. It’s amusing and…Rene…I really don’t know why you went to bed the other night thinking about what we as Hypnosis Practitioners have in common with the Computer Geek Squad…pleeease get out more! LoL.
So, what do we hypnosis practitioners have in common with computer geeks? I’m glad you asked because you may be surprised to find that we have almost identical responsibilities.
Let’s think about a computer for a moment. Most of us know how to use the basic functions of it. We know how to use the word processing, the Google search engine, our email and of course all of the social media sites like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. If you use your computer for work you are familiar with the software required to do your job.
Most of us are extremely efficient in using the software and programs we are familiar with. Everything you use on a regular basis was either already programmed on your computer or you downloaded it in the past and through repetition you became proficient with it.
How about all the others that we’re not familiar with?
Can you reprogram your computer?
Can you hack into a high security computer system?
Can you rewrite computer code to tailor a program to your exact needs?
Computers are responsible for running machinery, businesses, hospitals, cars, aircraft and even the space program. All of those satellites floating around in the sky are controlled by computers.
I think you’d agree that in comparison with everything a computer can be used for, we as individuals are barely scratching the surface of the capabilities of what it can do.
A professional computer GEEK on the other hand can take the same computer and do virtually ‘anything’ with it. I have frequently called the computer support team in a company I work for asking for help and the technician (Thanks, Nick, Jason and Helen!) actually took over the control of my computer and was operating it right before my eyes from their office some distance away. They navigated through my system as page after page flashed across the screen. Even my mouse cursor was moving around as if
by magic. I just sat there and observed. Then suddenly it was fixed. It was indeed an amazing experience to observe.
Now compare everything I just spoke about with the biological computer known as the human mind.
We are programmed with new data on a daily basis but the main portion or bulk of our programming came from existing programs we’ve had since youth and those that were downloaded into us by our environment such as our families, relatives, friends, school system and other input we ran across on a daily basis.
We understand how to use this bio-computer extremely well within the programs we are accustomed to. We can walk, talk, work, sing, ride a bike and do many things with ease. Compared to everything that is possible in life however, we are barely scratching the surface of what is available to us.
How can people access this outside information that they are not accustomed to or possibly may even be contrary to their basic programming?
How can we change our “mental make up” to think differently, be healthier or even to be more successful? Can a computer Geek help? Maybe not a computer Geek but a Hypnosis Practitioner can.
Now you see the similarity?...or should that be “Now you see the similarity”.
As a hypnosis practitioner I’m trained to program and reprogram client’s minds into working the way they should be working. So, I’m actually a “Mental” or “Biological Computer Geek”.
Welcome to the Geek Squad!
