How Hypnosis Works

Understanding Hypnosis

You don’t actually have to understand Hypnosis to benefit from it!  Many people have heard of the wonderful results others have accomplished through hypnosis, as a result, they might wonder if it could help them. Many people are afraid of hypnosis because of misinformation they’ve received – over the years from horror movies, novels, or television. Consequently the average person mis-understands hypnosis and what is possible.

What Hypnosis is Not.

To understand what hypnosis is, it might be easier to state what hypnosis is not. When a person is hypnotized, they are not asleep or in some eerie trance state. The hypnotized individual is typically aware of everything that is taking place. Even after being brought out of hypnosis, a person will be able to recall anything that took place during the session.

You Can Not Be Made to Do Anything You Don’t Want To Do.

It’s also good to understand that any suggestion offered during hypnosis that is not what the person wants- either one of two things would happen:  the person in the hypnotic state would either ignore the suggestion or would bring himself out of the hypnotic state.

The Hypnosis You Probably Have Experienced.

Hypnosis is a very normal, natural state that most of us experience everyday. An example of daily hypnosis would be “Road Hypnosis. ” Have you ever been driving and realized that you missed your exit or turn? Have you ever been so lost in a book or a movie tat you didn’t hear someone calling (or yelling) your name?  These are examples of a light hypnotic state. In both cases the conscious part of the mind had been distracted, allowing the subconscious part of the mind to take over.

Ok I’ve got it, Lets get started!

FREQUENT QUESTIONS I HEAR:

So Who Can Be Hypnotized?

I have hypnotized hundreds of people in both group and private sessions and have yet to find a person who cannot be hypnotized.

Will I Be Asleep?

During a hypnotic session, an individual can have a very deep or even very alert state of hypnosis. I’ve heard people snore, but that’s more of a positional thing! Sometimes people feel dreamy and sometimes people think that they have heard every word I’ve said. One woman remained calm & in hypnosis when a slab of ice loudly fell off the roof outside!

What If You Can’t Bring Me Out Of It?

It is important to understand that there is no danger of a person failing to come out of the hypnotic state! In fact, it would be impossible to remain hypnotized. Even if the hypnotic worker left the session (or office) while an individual was in the hypnotic state, there would be no danger! The person would drift off into a natural state of sleep and would awaken after they were rested.

Is There Any Danger With Hypnosis?

The only way hypnosis could be dangerous would be if it was used to take away pain. For example, if an individual were to be hypnotically released from the pain of a stomach ache, he would not have the pain to let him know that there is a medical problem.
