Some Facts About Hypnosis

Some people have heard or read things about hypnosis which give a false impression of what hypnosis really is. Most of this misinformation comes from the TV or movies or books written about misuses of hypnosis. We need to remember that these are produced to entertain and are not trying to inform people about the truth of hypnosis.  They show hypnosis being used in ways that it cannot be used, and sometimes, they distort the truth.  Here are some real facts about hypnosis:

  • Going into a state of hypnosis is a perfectly normal activity.  It appears differently to many people, but most people describe it as a restful, relaxing, state where they are still aware and in control.
  • The person who is hypnotized is aware of everything the hypnotist says at all times while they are experiencing hypnosis.
  • You will always awaken from hypnosis easily, and you remain in control at all times.
  • No person can be hypnotized without his cooperation and willingness.  The more a person allows themselves to cooperate and relax, the more benefits they will receive.
  • Some of the cases of hypnosis have shown what seemed to be miraculous results.  Hypnosis is not a miraculous power, it is merely a technique that enables your mind to access and use your own natural healing abilities, to assist in healing any area of the mind or body.
  • Hypnosis allows your subconscious mind (inner mind) to accept positive suggestions that can increase self confidence, self acceptance, self love and self esteem, to create success patterns for life, learning and health.  Hypnotic suggestions can release your unwanted patterns and strengthen those parts of your personality that you desire.
  • Some misinformed writers have claimed that hypnosis is dangerous, that it weakens the will or that it can cause other symptoms to arise in place of those released by hypnotic suggestion.  The opposite is true! There has never been a case in the history of hypnosis where it has caused other symptoms to arise.  Instead of weakening the will, hypnosis will actually strengthen the will and improve the mind.
