There are common misconceptions about hypnosis. Maybe your perception is the image of a watch swinging back and forth in front of a person and then the person being under the control of the Hypnotist, doing whatever the Hypnotherapist requests of the person. Hypnosis is not that old fashioned image. Hypnosis is becoming mainstream in American and across the globe. Following are the common misconceptions about hypnosis.
A hypnotized person is unconscious or asleep. False.
A hypnotized person is in a state of relaxation. They may appear to be asleep, but they are fully aware and awake.
The hypnotized person will obey every suggestion given by the HypnoTherapist. False.
You will not do anything against your moral grain. The HypnoTherapist is just the guide. You are in complete control at all times and have the ability to refuse any suggestion given and to come out of the hypnotic state any time you like.
Only weak minded people can be hypnotized. False.
Anyone who can think reason and communicate can be hypnotized. In fact, the more imaginative and intelligent a person is, the greater their ability to be hypnotized. The keys to a successful hypnosis session are:
- Believe it will work.
- Expect it to work.
- Imagine, pretend or visualize it working.
- Practice hypnosis.
It doesn't really work, does it? Yes.
