Meet Choury DeVelle, BSC, CHt, NLP
Orange County Hypnosis Center is a subsidiary of the Quantum Meditation and Transformation group – founded by Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, teacher, visionary and author, Choury DeVelle.
I believe the mind is truly the final frontier. Just as flying machines would have been considered miraculous to 18th century engineers, so miracle healings today, will be considered common place to medical science in the next 50 to 100 years.
A great deal of the healing that takes place in the world today, begins in mind of the patient. Proof of this is the ‘Placebo Effect’, where the patient has so much faith in the doctor and the medicine administered that he is essentially healed by an inert sugar pill.
Similarly, Dr. Blasiotto, from University of Chicago, had split people into three groups and tested each group on how many basketball ‘free throws’ they could make. Then over the next 30 days, the first group practiced free throws for an hour every day. The second group visualized themselves making free throws for an hour every day. The third group didn’t visualize or practice at all. At the end of the 30 days, he tested each group again. The first group, which physically practiced every day, improved by 24%. The second group, which only visualized free throws, improved by 23%. The third group didn’t improve at all.
What did this experiment prove? Well, among other things, it proved that the subconscious mind doesn’t know how to distinguish between what physically happens and what we imagine. The improvements for the first and second group were significant, even though the second group didn’t even touch a basketball for 30 days. The truth is, the second group did all the work needed to improve their performance by as much as the first group and they did it with simple visualization. In their individual subconscious minds, the members of group ‘two’ were actually shooting free throws. This means that the physical muscle memory, strength and coordination were actually created by the subconscious mind alone – that’s pretty powerful stuff.
Hypnosis allows us to tap into the infinite powerhouse of energy that resides within each one of us. Meditation gives us the balance to use this power in a way that brings light, good judgment, and empowerment to every aspect of our lives.
