What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a natural, state of the mind which involves comfortable relaxation, a redirection of attention, and active sensory imagination. There is a lot of mystery and mis-understanding about Hypnosis, and that alone makes it very misunderstood. People think it is not safe, that they will loose control or somehow that the Hypnotist will have them is some trance like spell, or that they may be forced to divulge personal information or even become stuck in the trance state of mind. The Myths out there about Hypnosis simply are not true. Hypnosis is a safe and effective means of Positive re-enforcement of the mind.
A Person Can Get Stuck In A Trance.
This is a very common mis-conception about Hypnosis. It is not possible to get stuck in a trance. One of Two things will happen. Either the person will fall off to sleep and then wake up feeling refreshed, or the person will simply wake up, again feeling refreshed.
Myth – 2
A Person Surrenders Themself To The Hypnotist.
Nothing can be further from the truth. First of all, because a person needs to be willing to go into Hypnosis, they must also be willing to accept the suggestions given to them while in the state of Hypnosis. Therefore the Hypnotist can not control a person while in the state. Remember, the subject is still in total control while in the state of Hypnosis, and there is no surrendering of anyones mind.
Myth – 3
A Hypnotist Can Make Me Do Things Against My Will.
This one has perplexed people for many years. The bottom line is that you are in control of yourself. No one can ever change that. In order for Hypnosis to work, you need to be willing to do it, and if you are not willing to do something, it is not going to work. There is no way for people to gain control over you. Your morals are yours and no one can ever change that, using Hypnosis or otherwise.
Hypnosis has been given a bad rap by those who want to gain from it. Most of them have no clue what Hypnosis is about, only that they can gain from selling it. There are countless people out there making big money selling Hypnosis as something it is NOT. Quite simply put, Hypnosis, when used properly, is a powerful tool that can help those willing to allow it.
Put all those myth’s to rest about Hypnosis. It’s not mind control, it’s not surrendering your will, and it’s not about breaking morals. It’s about helping others achieve success in things they never thought possible.
