There are a lot of misconceptions about Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy out there and I’d really like to clear them up. TV shows and movies have misrepresented this field for years. When people come to see me, they are nervous but are usually out of options to help them. Once I have answered all their questions and conducted the session, they are so excited. I always give you the safeguard that if you don’t like the feeling of hypnosis, you just need to count 1-5 and you’ll be “out” of hypnosis. This is because all hypnosis is really self-hypnosis, and I am merely the guide. Nobody has ever used this safeguard. They are most likely to complain “Oh, please, 10 more minutes” because it is the most relaxed they’ve been in a long time.
One of the biggest misconceptions is that you go to sleep, or that I’ll make you do something. Hypnosis is the opposite of sleep. It is a focused awareness. And because you hear every word I say, you still have free will to ignore anything that is said. That is why all you need for hypnotherapy to work is the motivation to change the behavior.
We all spend approximately 7 hours a day in the “hypnotic state”. Yes, you do, too. When you’ve been working at the computer and it feels like 10 minutes have gone by and it’s been 2 hours. When you cry at a movie or jump when the man with the axe jumps out during a horror movie. How about when you’ve slept 8 hours but dreamt about work and the next day you feel like you haven’t slept a wink. Your subconscious, which controls your body, doesn’t know the difference between fact or fiction, so it believes you were at work all night so of course you’re tired.
It is because the subconscious believes everything you tell it that makes hypnotherapy so successful. With neuroscience permitting us incredible insight into brain function, we can now use hypnosis to manifest biological and psychological miracles that our forefathers would have considered “pure magic”.
Hypnosis is the catalyst that can break the cords that tie us down to mediocrity. Whether it’s losing weight, stopping smoking, increasing study skills, improving sales skills, removing fears and phobias, managing pain, etc; hypnosis can help because it is the gateway to our highest consciousness. We all have this amazing subconscious part of our brains that can enhance whatever we can imagine.
