Myths & Misconceptions of Hypnosis
Hypnosis is a tool that has been misunderstood for many years.
In the past few years researchers have taken some of their time and attention to study the effects of hypnosis on the brain. Finding scientific proof that it does change the activity of the brain. Thanks to this, people now know that it doesn't work just because you believe in it; which is one of the myths.
Putting stage hypnosis aside. There are countless cases of people benefiting from hypnosis and making lasting changes in their lives.
Hypnotherapy is not for everybody, just like NOTHING is for EVERYBODY. We are all different and there will be things that work for some people and some for others.
It is your choice, just like you can choose to do Yoga instead of Tai Chi. If there is something in you that is attracted to it and you want to try it, then you CAN.
So before you try it yourself, here are some facts you need to know:
Myth #1: When you are in hypnosis you are out of control.
Fact: You cannot be hypnotized against your will. You must want to be hypnotized.
Myth #2: Only the gullible and weak minded can be hypnotized.
Fact: It takes imagination and a willingness to cooperate, a willingness to accept suggestions. The more intelligent and imaginative the person, the easier it is to hypnotize him/her.
Myth #3: A person may stay in the hypnotic state and don't wake up.
Fact: No one has remained indefinitely in the hypnotic state. The state can be terminated at will. You cannot get stuck in hypnosis.
Myth #4: Hypnosis is unnatural and artificial.
Fact: Hypnosis is a natural, yet altered state of mind.
Myth #5: Hypnosis is a surrender of one's will to the hypnotist. It is a "stronger mind" having power over a "weaker mind"; where the hypnotic subject is under the power or control of the hypnotist.
Fact: A hypnotist has no power over another person. The client must want to be hypnotized; allowing the process of finding his/her own inner resources in their subconscious mind. The hypnotherapist assists and facilitates the process.
Myth #6: Hypnosis is sleep, an unconscious state and when hypnotized a person is not aware of their surroundings.
Fact: In hypnosis awareness is increased. You are aware of everything that is going on around you; it is only that you choose to pay attention to what is happening within your own mind and the process of the therapy.
Myth #7: Hypnosis affects a cure in just one or two sessions. It is a "panacea".
Fact: In many cases a person can break a habit in one or two sessions. However, in the majority of cases, a number of sessions are required to obtain favorable and lasting results. Hypnosis does not cure ALL of human problems and it doesn't solve problems instantly.
Myth #8: Hypnosis is brainwashing.
Fact: Brainwashing – The American Heritage Dictionary defines Brainwashing as “Intensive, forcible indoctrination, usually political or religious, aimed at destroying a person's basic convictions and attitudes and replacing them with an alternative set of fixed beliefs.” Brainwashing involves an altered state where some form of deprivation is present. A hypnotist cannot make someone do something that they would not do normally and empowers his client to access this state himself and to make his own positive changes.
