What is Hypnosis?

So What Exactly Is Hypnosis?

Is it mind control hypnosis? 

Some might think that.  Watch this short video to learn the truth.

Hypnosis is a state of focused attention that allows access to the subconscious mind.

In this state, your subconscious mind believes what it hears and imagines.  You naturally begin to overwrite the negative habit patterns of the past.  When you think and focus upon new, positive beliefs and a better future, you support the new patterns that hypnosis helps to anchor within your subconscious mind.  It creates a powerful ally in your subconscious mind that no longer sabotages your life.  Instead, the inner conflict diminishes as you continually focus upon what it is you do want now.  Positive Hypnosis helps you to break free.

Are you still mystified by hypnosis?

There are many misconceptions, myths and downright lies about hypnosis.  Read about Hypnosis, then review the three Myths of hypnosis…

Myth #1

I might lose all control during hypnosis or tell secrets or do something crazy.” Hypnosis and mind control are often confused, for loss of control is perhaps the greatest fear of hypnosis.  The truth is you don’t say anything during the hypnosis sessions, you simply listen, relax and drift into a calm and peaceful state of mind and body.  This myth results from watching stage shows where the people do all kinds of crazy things.  Even those on stage have to be willing to allow the hypnotist to give them wild and crazy suggestions.  No hypnotist can make you do anything you don’t want to do!

Myth #2

“I won’t hear what’s being said.” The truth is that you hear everything that’s being said, unless you choose to relax so much that you drift into a deeper state of mind and body.  And we record the session, so you’ll be able to hear it all later anyway.

Myth #3

“I can’t be hypnotized because I’m too strong-willed.” In reality everyone can be hypnotized, but some may not let it happen.  If you are open-minded, it’s an easy process.  Remember, we can’t make you do anything you don’t want to do.  All we need is the agreement with your conscious mind to work together to achieve results, but when your conscious mind resists out of fear then you aren’t hypnotized.  We review hypnosis before the first session  so that your fears are dispelled.   When you learn the truth about hypnosis you relax and begin to achieve your dreams.  Why would you want to control the hypnosis mind?  You could resist out of fear and ignorance, but why would you want to?

Hypnosis Helps You Believe It to See It!

Scientists are admitting hypnosis makes people literally see what they believe by affecting the way their brains function. Volunteers who had their brains scanned while under hypnosis showed they were not merely doing what they were told.  The scans revealed that when they were asked to see non-existent colors, they really saw them.  In the tests by the University of California a burst of activity was seen in the part of their brain responsible for perceiving color.  “There has been a whole argument that hypnosis is just an exaggerated form of social compliance – in other words, people just telling you what you want to hear.”  The research team is now looking at how hypnosis can prevent pain.  Read more about it at Hypnosis Articles or scan over 99 pages of research at More Articles.
