Hypnosis is a state of deep relaxation & calmness. The body is very comfortable and the mind more alert. It is a bypass of the critical factor and establishment of selective acceptable thinking. Hypnosis is a tool to access the subconscious mind and can help create permanent and dramatic changes to improve life.
One does not lose consciousness. In fact, it is a state of heightened awareness. You are always in control. No one can be compelled to do or say anything that is in conflict with ones ethics or moral and religious beliefs. If suggestions are given to the contrary, you will immediately emerge from the hypnotic state.
The mind does not become weak; In fact, weak minded people cannot be hypnotized because they are incapable of responding to the suggestions made by the hypnotist. Contrary to popular belief one has to be strong willed & have good power of intelligence, imagination & concentration to enter Hypnosis.
Hypnosis is a contract between the client and the therapist. Without the client’s willingness to experience Hypnosis for personal benefit, the client cannot be hypnotized. However, since hypnosis is a very natural, relaxed state, the feeling is so good that the client actually does not want to come out. In a hypnotic state all worries, tensions, cares vanish & the client comes out feeling much better than before. One hour of hypnotic relaxation is equal to 8 hours of deep, profound, undisturbed sleep. Even if something were to happen to the hypnotist or if the hypnotist walked away while the client is under hypnosis, the client will, within 30 minutes to 1 hour emerge out of hypnosis, feeling very relaxed. Since hypnosis is a state of heightened awareness, the subject can taste, smell, see & feel things better than other-wise.
We must understand that one enters into Hypnosis only on one’s own will & wish. If during Hypnosis for any reason one is uncomfortable & wants to emerge from Hypnosis, he/she will instantly and naturally open their eyes and become fully alert. No one can keep you in hypnosis against your will. The role of the hypnotist is merely that of a guide, a catalyst or in a layman’s terms that of a driving instructor. The control of the vehicle, the steering wheel is always in the hand of the client. With his specialized training, the therapist guides & directs the client to achieve the results that he/she desires.
Hypnosis is completely safe. The American Medical Association sanctioned the use of Hypnosis in 1958 and it is a recommended training for medical doctors and dentists. Hypnosis is completely safe.
