Frequently Asked Questions About Hypnosis…
What Is Hypnosis?
Simply put, Hypnosis is an extreme state of relaxation combined with intense focus. Sounds like a bit of a contradiction, but it’s not… it just when you become very relaxed and then you focus on the changes you would like to make in your life and let nothing else distract you from wanting, allowing and making those changes become a reality and a permanent part of your subconscious mind, beliefs and life. I think that sometimes it’s easier to take a look at what hypnosis is not to get a real understanding. Hypnosis is NOT brainwashing or mind control, nor is it any supernatural, demonic or scary. In fact hypnosis is a natural part of our everyday lives. You see, we all enter a state of hypnosis at least a couple of times each and every day. We all pass through a state of hypnosis when we are falling asleep and waking from sleep. Hypnosis is right in between being fully asleep and fully awake. I fondly refer to it as the state of “I Don’t Care”. It’s when you are so relaxed that you don’t care about what’s going on around you. You can still hear (and sometimes even see) what’s going on around you, but you are so relaxed, you just don’t care. Another example of going into hypnosis in everyday life is when you “zone out”, “space out” or just daydream. If you have ever gone to a movie and laughed, cried or been scared, that’s a form of hypnosis too. The movies aren’t real, but you are reacting to them as if they were. Or, my favorite is when you miss your turn on the way home or you forget about the last few miles you’ve driving and then suddenly wonder how you got from point A to point B. That’s another form of hypnosis called “road hypnosis”. All these situations are ones where you’re conscious mind has stepped out of the way for a few moments and let you subconscious mind take over. So you see, we all go into hypnosis, it’s just another part of life.
How Do I know I Can Be Hypnotized?
Everyone can be hypnotized, well… almost everyone. Everyone except for people that don’t want to be or resist hypnosis, people who are under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and people that suffer from an acute mental illness. First, people that resist hypnosis… This is probably not you otherwise, you wouldn’t be coming to me for help. I have never had a client in my hypnotherapy office that would not willingly go into hypnosis; the reason being is that they all wanted me to help them help themselves with whatever they came in to see me about. Second, people under the influence of alcohol or drugs… This is because they lack the ability to focus long enough to allow themselves to go into hypnosis. And lastly, those that suffer from an acute mental illness… They to0 often lack the ability to focus due to their illness or medication they may be taking for said illness, and may also suffer from some sort of paranoia that stops them from going into hypnosis. Another myth is that some people believe they can’t be hypnotized because they are too intelligent or strong minded. Being hypnotized has nothing to do with you level of intelligence. Actually, the smarter you are, the easier you are to hypnotize, because you have a good imagination which responds well to suggestion and you can focus on the hypnotist’s voice. Focus and concentration, key elements to hypnosis, require at least average intelligence and the smarter you are, generally, the greater your ability to connect the hypnotist’s suggestions to the experiences which help facilitate trance and change.
Will The Hypnotist Will Take Control Over Me?
All hypnosis is self hypnosis; therefore, you are always in complete control while in hypnosis. The hypnotist is just a guide or facilitator to help you find your relaxed state of “trance” or hypnosis. Once you are there, he can only give you suggestions. It is completely up to you if you accept them or not. In fact, you can never be made to do anything against your will or anything that defies your morals, values, ethics or beliefs. Another thing, although you are able to speak while in hypnosis, you will not reveal any deep, dark secrets that you do not want to tell the hypnotist about.
Will I Remember What Happened During Hypnosis?
A common fear is that the hypnotist will “do something” to you while you are hypnotized and you won’t remember it when you come out of hypnosis. While you may enjoy being very relaxed in hypnosis, everything that transpired will be part of your awareness. The subconscious mind is the storehouse of your memories and the emotions and sensations that are attached to them. You can’t delete memories, but you can minimize the power of the emotions that are attached to them.
Is There A Chance I Could Get Stuck In Hypnosis?
Getting stuck in hypnosis is one of the biggest myths regarding hypnosis. This is physically, anatomically, emotionally and mentally impossible to get stuck in hypnosis. Remember, all hypnosis is self hypnosis, so why would you put yourself into a situation that you can’t get out of? The answer is, you wouldn’t. This myth is only true in the movies!
