The subconscious mind uses pictures, sounds, feelings, smells and tastes to represent experiences. We can use hypnotic symbolism to quickly change how our mind represents feelings and situations.
Words don’t describe our feelings exactly because our language is limited. For example our internal symbolic representation of children could be a white fluffy cloud floating in a bright blue sky. The symbols that the subconscious use describe each individuals experience exactly and are specific to that person.
Negative symbols can be changed for positive symbols while in a trance altering the internal representation.
