Biography for Thomas A. Hilton Jr.

Thomas A. Hilton Jr.

Thomas lives and works in Ridgeland, Mississippi where he specializes in Sports Performance Hypnosis and enjoys working with professional baseball players but encourages all athletes to discover the power of hypnosis to improve their overall performance.

Thomas has spent the past 20 years studying the mind, body and spirit connection and it's true untapped potential. He has made it a mission to share and teach others what he has experienced personally.

He was given a first glimpse into the actual power of the subconscious mind back in 1978, when during a simple baseball game, he stepped back and allowed his subconscious to take over. In doing so, he witnessed the most amazing performance in that one game. While at the time, he didn't fully understand how it happened in the manner it did, but he never forgot that game.

Over the years, answers to that question began to reveal itself one by one. He soon learned that he had played within "the zone" as most experts in sports would refer to it. Now, he knew how it happened and how to teach others to tap into "the zone" at will.

After years of research into how the mind operates, he learned that he had simply slipped into a hypnotic state, while fully awake, during that game. It was the very small details of that one game, and later learning how hypnosis can be induced that he wanted to teach others how to take advantage of it within sports.

Once Thomas began to study the process of hypnosis, it's many uses within Hypnotherapy, it all began to make total sense. How one simple act and pattern interrupt allowed the subconscious to take over and perform effortlessly. All his research was coming together. How the mind is programmed from the early years using all the real life experiences, as our minds very own software of choice. How the mind acts out our life script as if on autopilot and how we can use hypnosis to help modify unwanted behaviors and re-program our conditioned life script to finally obtain our greatest desires and wishes.
