5 hypnosis myths busted!

OVER the years, hypnosis has picked up all sorts of weird associations from stage hypnotists, the media and superstition. This is a great shame, because in reality, hypnosis is one of the most effective tools for change. Hypnosis is something you should know how to use so it doesn't use you. In this post you can discover biggest hypnosis myths.

All hypnosis is the same

As anything else, hypnosis can be good, bad or indifferent. The most popular is old school authoritarian hypnosis of the type "You are getting sleepy, you are feeling confident". Its not surprising, this sort of hypnosis does not work well with most people. Real good hypnosis uses advanced communication patterns and subtle psychological principles .

This is like the difference between a sports coach who thinks you will perform better if he yells at you, compared with the more elegant style of a great leader who knows that to get the best from his people, he understands motivation, cajole, encouragement and rewarding.

Hypnosis offers hundreds of sessions using the best type of hypnosis.

Subliminals work

Subliminals are words that you can not hear. Common sense says they should not work, and there's no research proving that they do!

Some people can't be hypnotized

The 1 and only reason you can not be hypnotized is if you are incapable of paying attention due to extremely low IQ or brain damage. That's is of course if you had stumbled on a good and flexible hypnotist.

Hypnosis is something weird that other people do to you>

If you couldn't go into hypnosis, you wouldn't be able to sleep, to learn, or get nervous through "negative self hypnosis". (You know when you imagine things going wrong and it makes you feel anxious? Well that's self hypnosis!)

Hypnosis is simply a deliberate utilization of the REM (Rapid Eye Movement) or dream state. Its is not giving people medication – if it wasn't a natural ability, hypnosis would not work!

You lose control in hypnosis

Crazy news stories, stage hypnotists and gossip have created the illusion that you lose control in hypnosis. Actually, when hypnotized, you are very relaxed and focused – and able to choose to get up and walk away at any time. You choose to give your attention to the hypnotist, and you can withdraw it at any time. Its up to you to decide!
